    Mortimer's battle logs.

    Today's work out: was split into 2 due to rock climbing class. 3 sets: 25 kg shoulder press (x5) 100 lbs squat(x5) 50kg deadlift 10 push ups Jumping up then catching bar and holding for 12 secs before resting for another 10 secs and repeat Chest press with just the bar 20 kg clean and press(x5) 1 min plank Rock climbing report - no new walls conquered today, tried to do yellow route on previously conquered wall but failed. Was probably too tired by then. Then went back to the gym to continue weights. 3 sets: 25 kg 20 kg shoulder press (x5) 100 lbs squat(x5) 50kg 45 kg deadlift(x3) - could not manage 50 kg after rock climbing. 10 push ups 10 bodyweight rows Chest press with just the bar 20 kg clean and press(x5) 1 min plank After rock climbing I got the 25 kg barbell off the rack, tried to get it to shoulder press position, realized I couldn't, then had to ask some muscular guy to help me put it back on the rack. Eeeek how embarrassing >< Today wasn't really a very good day, exercise wise since I tried to load 5 kg on the chest press bar, got stuck and someone had to bail me out. >< Then there was this finger grip slip off the rock climbing wall and me cursing as I just got the auto belay down. No harm done though.

    It shows my endurance is still okay, even with backing off of training these past two months. So I'm pretty happy with that. I guess I didn't give many actual race details though did I? To make up for it, here is a photo of a random person before jumping off the height obstacle. It was hilarious how many people plugged their noses like they were jumping into water (no water was involved). Thanks Miaulin! I haven't visited your thread in a while, I hope you are doing well!

    PinkNinja's Routine +1

    The routine last challenge went well. I'm going to build on that. I was on vacation last week. It was awesome. I broke my arm Thursday and got a cast Friday. My grandpa has been in the hospital and isn't doing well. My boss retired Friday. So I'm not going to ask much of myself this challenge round. I'm going to wake up on time, drink a glass of water when I wake up, and spend the first 5 minutes at work getting organized for the day so I can be more productive and go home on time without feeling guilty. I was going to make my bed but I prefer to wait until I have two hands again. Same with doing a sun salutation each morning.

    I think you were right. I pretty much spent all morning peeing. Got curious and weighed myself, down 4 pounds! I usually don’t weigh myself every week, but I think I will for a few more weeks to see if there is a trend. I don’t think that counts as soda because there’s no sugar. I’m usually not a fan of regular carbonated water but that sounds interesting. If I find the right fruit juice to cover the taste and not be loaded with hidden sugar I could make this work.

    Rookie Takes Aim

    Finally got a minute to myself haha. This has been my day - wake up and hear roomie get up around same time. wait to see if roomie will take dogs out - wait a solid 40 minutes until I realize roomie is still in washroom and not taking care of dogs - take care of dogs - Make breakfast - watch HIMYM with bf and roomie until 10 mins before friend should arrive - shower - friend arrives at 10 and we play board games / go for lunch / more board games until 3:00... (I tried hinting she could leave cause I had plans at 4 but she wanted to play one more game) - friend left, I get ready for next party and go to LCBO to grab some Sobu for my friend and her a card - arrive 15 mins late around 4:15 - confirm I don't really know anyone there aside from her family - left around 7:40 - get home and start prepping for tomorrows father's day brunch. I made lemon drop cakes, cut up watermelon and made a lemon dill sauce for the salmon. -9:45 I finish and finally on couch ...zzzz Don't get me wrong lol I had fun today just a bit (really) exhausted. I'm a person who really enjoys alone time. Boardgames were fun though and I liked seeing both friends today. And luckily my friends mom suggested I invited my mum to the party while I was there and she was free and did come... Because I would of had no one to talk with haha. I'm not good in social situations like this.. especially when I don't really have anything in common. I find the whole situation awkward. I didn't bother tracking today. It was all over the place.

    2019: Year of the Wandering Monk Weight: 218.4 Sleep: 10 Hrs Water: 1 gallon Macros: 160g Protein, 110g Carbs, 90g Fats Calories: 1700 Meals: 10:00am - Egg white breakfast sandwich, tomato slices, oj, coffee, vitamins 2:00pm - Greek yogurt, honey, strawberries, almonds, green tea 4:30pm - Protein bar & green tea 6:30pm - Tofu & Broccoli 8:30pm - Protein shake Fitness: Weights - Back/Legs/Shoulders/Biceps Notes: Had my meeting with the Doctor about my depressive episodes and much to my surprise, the diagnosis wasn’t depression. Apparently I have textbook Mixed Bipolar Disorder. As the doctor told me more about the disease she named off symptoms that I didn’t even know were associated with the disease that I thought were just things unique to me (apparently really good sense of smell and difficultly sleeping are common things with bipolar). Turns out they aren’t so unique. It’s taking some time to gain acceptance on this. There isn’t a cure for this other than life long medication therapy. I don’t think thats something anyone gets excited about hearing, but it’s a lot less time intensive than what I do for my sobriety. Objectively it’s taking a tiny pill once a day and a 20 minute check in with the doctor a few times a year. A big challenge I’m having with this is a lot like what I felt when I got sober. There are so many parts of this disease that have defined who I am for so long, I don’t know who I will be without them. I do have some experience, strength, and hope in getting sober to know that when I got treatment for my alcoholism I became a better husband, father, worker, and friend. I have faith that getting treatment for my Bipolar Disorder will probably be something like that, just don’t know what it will look like, and I know from previous experience that that’s okay. Busy day, squeezed in some gym time and got mostly caught up on my lifting for the week. Getting to bed a bit early and looking forward to a nice day of family and friends tomorrow.

    So, yep ... this happened. When I first joined the Rebellion (almost exactly 3 years ago!), I knew I didn't just want to find information and support for myself; I was looking for a place where I could pass on to others the good things I learned. I wasn't ready back then to take on a leadership position and I knew it; but thanks to all the mentoring, encouragement, guidance, advice, listening ears, and love I've found here, I hope I'm ready now. I know what a huge role Tank and the other guild leaders have played in my life - not just online, but offline too - and I hope and pray that I'll be equipped to do the same for other Rangers coming up behind me. I'm sure for some people, NF is a small part of their life; but for me, and I know for others too, it has become part of the fabric of who I am. I try to be brave, because I am a Ranger. I push myself outside my comfort zone because I am a Ranger. I grapple with ideas and undertakings and obstacles that frighten me, because I am a Ranger and I know that you guys are out there doing the exact same thing in your lives. I've gained so much more than just knowledge about healthy eating and lifting weights. I've gained boldness, strength, confidence, and perspective. And as grandiose as it sounds, I hope I can do a little bit to help build a place where others find the same things. ----------- Cheesiness aside, today has been a lovely day. I got up early to go to the membership class at my church, which was very long and kind of felt like I was drinking out of a fire hose (think "cramming an entire religion's foundational beliefs into 4 hours of teaching"). But it gave me a lot to think about and study, which is a good thing. After class, I rushed home, ate a granola bar, and went to get my hair cut, which was also lovely. The hairdresser didn't cut it quite as short as I wanted, but it still looks much better than it did before. I also got an object lesson in lack of boundaries at the salon - when I came in, the lady in the chair was telling the hairdresser all about her delinquent son and how much she hates him; and as I walked in, she looked right at me and started telling me the same thing, even though I was a complete stranger. She treated me like an old friend the whole time she finished her appointment and even said she'd hug me the next time she saw me. No, thank you, I'd really rather not. I came home this afternoon and took a nap, then had the great idea to go down to the little park and swing on the swingset, forgetting that I am now 30.5 years old and swinging makes me very sick very quickly. So I wobbled back to the store, bought some kitten chow and then wobbled home. I am indulging slightly on pizza and breadsticks this evening because a) I barely ate today and b) I'm celebrating my promotion to Guild Leader. Tonight will be a shower, a little TV and hopefully an earlier bedtime - although my friend for whom I'm making the afghan had her beautiful baby girl today, so I need to hurry up and get it finished!

    The two in which Fonzico does not crazy

    The week ended fairly well - I've been eating decently, so that helps! I did find a dress for the wedding -I'm very happy with it: I've accomplished little today, beside the dress and grocery shopping. I had a three hour nap - that was amazing. Plans for tomorrow include hitting up a greenhouse and taking the pups on an adventure. Just the kind of stress-relieving weekend I needed!

    To be fair, the reason the movie broke my heart was primarily the ending, as Ralph and Vanellope are separating ... it reminded me so much of my own move, especially being separated from Ayre. So while the movie itself was amazing, it was honestly the echoes of my own experience that made it so heartbreaking. That said, I am immensely happy that Vanellope found a crazy, weird place to live out her dream - its strangeness suits her so well!! I am SO excited (it's tomorrow)!!! I bought a small bag of kitten chow this evening to give to some lucky kitten mama (or dad!!), and I can't wait to see and play with the cute babies! Honestly buying the kitten chow made me wish I were bringing it home for a kitten of my own .......

    no theme for mom2sjm just accountability

    Week 2 Recap Started the challenge late but I did ok. Really made an effort not to skip lunch and avoided snacks at staff meetings and parties this week. Didn't exercise though. That's the goal for next week. The max with all the bonus is 70 points a week. I ended up with 23.

    My way towards OCR

    Oh my god! *salutes on temps in 30s* Temps in 30s, I'm hiding in an air-conditioned gym for my workouts. Though for running I may make an exception - because I believe you should be able to run in all weather. No point being unable to outrun the zombie apocalypse because it was too hot, right? Those zombies don't care about the weather! My nephew loves dinosaurs! What kind of dinosaur are you? Sorry I don't know how to hide content(Im on phone).

    Snarky Tests her “If I could”s

    Boy this week went by fast, didn't it? This was definitely a rough week. I was really busy, which is just sometimes how the week falls. Tried to do too much with the diet, and it backfired a bit. Hormones are being a jerkface. And I was just being genuinely sad about my dad's vision. He's getting surgery next week to try to stop the progression of glaucoma. It won't make his vision better, it just will hopefully stop the progression of glaucoma for a year or so. We just want to buy him more time with the shitty vision he has left. I slept too much over the last couple of days. I definitely ate too much, and I've wallowed in sad feelings quite a bit. I feel like the week started just okay, and ended with me on my ass. Or more accurately hiding under my blanket and stress-napping. So this week's theme is definitely Setbacks. Which from a story telling standpoint is just about right, isn't it? Now we can end this challenge with a win! NOT ONLY DID SHE BOUNCE BACK, SHE CRUSHED ALL THE GOALS! Setbacks make the next victory so much sweeter Next week is also busy, but I'm planning ahead for that. Victory, Victory! (are you buying this? I think I might be. Not quite. But almost. )

    Respawn point! Let's do this

    I can help! I'm a city chit! You see, I was also thinking about my vacation in October, and one of my Park Run buddies pointedly reminded me that I'd need to keep in shape on the trip(good on her!) for my wedding in November. It was a rather sobering realization, but I figured I should be able to manage it. Firstly, here's the nerd fitness guide: I intend to body weight workout in the hotel room, before or after I start everyday. If I can't fit in anything else, I'll try to get 40 leg raises, 40 bodyweight squats, 40 push ups and a min of plank done. Now for eating out- if you're partial to salads(unlike me - who is a cooked vegetable snob) go whack on them. Choose grilled/roasted/steamed items instead of fried/battered ones and ask for your carb sides (like fries) to be changed for vegetables(you may have to settle for coleslaw). Chinese food with its stir fried meats and vegetables is fairly healthy, as are their clear herbal soups (though sodium may be an issue), but again I'm biased towards my own heritage For meats - go for fish/chicken/beef in that order. I realized that pork has quite high fat content for its nutrition and generally don't eat that much of it these days. Though I'm making a black pepper pork zuchinni boat this week. Turkey and duck are OK, but stay clear of mutton.
