I am in. Good idea!
PS challenge starts today!
Edited to add: going to start reading the books  both my kids love them.2 
This sounds like fun... I don't have that much weight to lose though. Maybe I can figure out an alternative lifting challenge along this theme... like adding that much weight to my squat or something.2

Not a successful week, although I did a mountain climb last weekend so had lots of gain after  inflammation, water retention, eating lots of jelly babies and many celebratory ciders! I've also missed both rugby training sessions seeing as I couldn't walk1
