    [Charlie Quinn] CrossFit II: Return of the Wanker

    I can't really say I've been here either. It's been spotty the last few months

    Charlie! We missed you. I'm glad things seem to have been going well for you

    I'm gonna try to do a better job than I did in the last challenge where I completely ghosted most of it

    Stribs Lays the Foundation for Summer

    Lurking. We did a similar trip last summer: flew to Oregon and drove back hitting National Parks. It was a blast

    Therapy appointment is set up for early next month. I feel silly about it now but keep reminding myself of how I was feeling at 11:30pm Saturday when I sent an email requesting the appointment. I called it "weight loss counseling" but really it needs to be anxiety counseling as I'm pretty sure that's the underlying issue. Thanks guys. I'll still be around reading and liking

    Jon! I'm glad to see you back, I was wondering how you were doing. That sucks about the DNF but luckily it healed fast. I'm also glad you're getting help for your mental health. I'm mostly taking this challenge off while I seek help for my own issues (yay anxiety) but I'll be quietly lurking around and reading

    Welp, I ghosted this challenge hard. It's not been pretty, though not horrible. My weight hasn't really changed which would be great if I were working on maintaining.... I did my first event of the year last weekend and it was a bit rough, but part of that was I was apparently actually sick and not just congested from allergies/weather changes. I wasn't sick-sick, but my lungs were more affected than I realized and my stomach picked that day to act up, though luckily mostly after the race. I finished in about an hour which really isn't shabby for a 5k OCR for me so I'm relatively happy for that. And the only obstacle I couldn't successfully complete was shooting rubber ducks with a paintball gun which I have zero interest in anyway. I managed both sets of monkey bars and a traverse wall thing which involved chains and climbing holds and hopping to change feet as the very last obstacle so I was pretty pleased about those Aaaannnnddd I haven't worked out since. I didn't even make it to kickboxing this week, partially from good excuses (I forgot my freaking shoes Monday! and had to meet a contractor after work Tuesday and gaming on Wednesday) and partially being whiny about still being mildly congested, and partially just being whiny and down on myself Anyway, what I'm doing obviously isn't working at all anymore. I love NF and it really helped me get to where I am, but it's just not doing it for me anymore. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, so I'm exploring new options including a subscription based app and therapy. I'll still be around periodically reading, but probably not posting much at all

    I petered out at the end of my last challenge and didn't even create one for the last round. In my defense, tax season is cray cray. I've been working long hours and weekends. It's been good, I'm enjoying it (for those that don't know, it's a newish job, not quite 6 months) but it's been hard to take proper care of myself. I did make it to kickboxing at least twice each week even if sometimes it was barely squeezing in at 7:30 when they close at 8. Food however, has been inexcusable. Not only have I not had the time or energy to buy and make real food in the evenings, which then usually becomes my lunches, but there's been a non-stop sugar rush at the office. In one week there were Wendy's frosties, 3 dozen cookies from a place that delivers them still warm from the oven, 3-4 more dozen the next day from a different company, donuts, and chocolate shakes. For an office of nine people. And I will admit I ate my fair share. And gained 10lbs in the last 2 months because of it. No bueno. It's gotta stop It's still too early to say if I actually have the motivation to really stick with a challenge, but the weather is getting nice and I'm feeling excited about getting back on track. I actually went for a run yesterday. Me! Running! Tomorrow is D-day for taxes then things should calm down a bit. I've been trying to figure out a plan, but planning and me haven't been friends lately. Kickboxing will definitely happen, running and lifting each may happen. Food HAS to improve. My first OCR of the year is at the end of week 3 of this challenge. It's a local 5k put on by my old gym. I'm signed up for 5 more this year and eyeballing a few others. I've also apparently thoroughly corrupted a friend of mine and he's doing a Spartan Trifecta this year. Not sure I'll be able to run any of them with him since he's back home and the closest one he's doing is 8 hours away from me but I've at least got a real life friend to talk to about OCRs now. At this point I have no official goals besides move more and eat better so I guess I'm battlechallengelogging it
