    Default Zoom has goals, yes 'ze do.

    I want to be able to do these things:
    • Pullups
    • Vertical pushups

    As well as gain in these departments:
    • Muscle definition
    • Flexbility

    Muscle gain is not specifically a goal, but I'm sure a bit will occur as a side effect.

    Weekly vehicles for all o' this:
    • 3 one hour-long weight sessions (which can be split into upper body/lower body sessions)
    • 2 occurrences of me doing something I enjoy (Martial arts, practicing acrobatics, swimming) for ~30 minutes during the weekdays
    • 1 occurrence of me doing something I enjoy for a bloody long while on the weekend (Bikram yoga or hiking or somesuch) - this'll normally take an hour and a half or so

    I like the idea, though I hadn't said anything yet.



    If it helps any: as I said, I will be consolidating everyone's goals at the end of day (I've worked in accounting and finance too bloody long) on the 31st into one place. Also, I will be keeping track of everyone's progress (via an Excel spreadsheet) who takes part in the contest portion 'cause otherwise how will we know who deserves a garland of flowers strung around their neck at the end of this whole bit?
    Excellent!

    I've been thinking about this. I think I'd like to start out really easily and add a new goal every month (while keeping the old ones). So mine are going to be um, embarrassingly easy, at least for now. I literally do not exercise right now, lol. I don't want to be in the running for a prize because my goals are too easy but I'd like to participate in everything else.

    Exercise:

    -1 session/week of any p90x routine (I think they're all about 45 minutes) or any other active thing I want to do for at least 30 minutes (not counting scheduled sports...pickup sports would work though). Walking doesn't count.

    -I intend to sign up for soccer two nights a week (1 indoor turf, 1 gym) and volleyball one night a week, but if that changes I might edit my goals...they also won't start for a while and will end during the winter holidays. I don't know if I want the sports to be part of my formal goals since I'll rarely miss them anyway.

    Eating:

    -drinking more water everyday - let's say at least 1 full (very large) drinking glass at work for weekdays, and 2 full glasses of water/day during the weekend. I'm guessing that's about 750mL. Not counting water during sports. I'll say herbal or green tea counts, if no milk or sugar.
    -some (pref. leafy) green vegetables for at least one meal per day!!! this one might be hard for me due to laziness, not because I don't like them.
    -cooking from scratch at least one (pref. new recipe) healthy meal/week. Healthy meaning little to no refined carbs, lots of vegetables, some protein, with mostly or entirely "whole" foods.

    How does it work for this Wed-Sun if the weeks will be starting on Mondays? Does it not really start until next Monday?
    -end of thread-

    I was wondering the same thing. This is important stuff because I need to know if I'm going to eat healthy tomorrow or not.

    I vote we just deal with having two partial weeks. I'm ready to go.

    I started yesterday but I'd prefer the week runs Monday to Sunday. Not a big deal if that's a hassle though.

    Please note: This party starts tomorrow.

    The 29th of February is also a Wednesday, so in terms of the length of the challenge 'tis an even number of months - even to the point of beginning and ending on a Wednesday. For the purposes of calculation, participants are disqualified from winning (please do continue participating and working toward yon goals and generally being awesome around here, eh?) after they use 13 cheats (this is based on allowing exactly 1 cheat every two weeks).

    In terms of individuals' updates: post either at the end of the week or per workout, as you choose - for this week, just update in whatever fashion you were planning on utilizing. The number of workouts per week and the cheats used are what shall be counted on a weekly basis, but as for how it affects ye all - it doesn't, except in regards to how one does or does not want to be able to see their progress represented in terms of the data.

    So the week will indeed run Monday to Sunday. Updates will go by that schedule (i.e., the final updates for a week should be made no later than Wednesday of the following week). I will show the progress by that standard*. But the first day of the challenge is indeed tomorrow.

    *Yeah, yeah, this week will look weird on the spreadsheet.
