  1. Hey Mily, been following along since the beginning. looks like you are having some awesome numbers thrown up man keep it up! A few books for you to check out are The magic of thinking big by David J. Schwartz Ph.D., The law of success in Sixteen Lessons by Napoleon Hill (part 1 and part 2) and Way of the peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. All 3 (4 if you count part 1 and 2 seperatly) have changed my life numerous times) from the sounds of it I used to be very much like you, whenever someone said or did something I would take it very personal and internalize it over and over again. It led to some very deep bouts of depression however after reading these books and looking at myself, I came to the realization that I couldn't do anything about them. I could only control myself. So I started to adopt a analytically view. If someone criticized me, then I would step back for a moment, look at the situation, play it out in my mind if I made their change and then would decide if I were going to apply their critic or not. I still do it. I had a guy come up to me yesterday at the gym and give me some pointers on my dead lift (Mainly he said that they weren't good to do and that I could destroy my entire back if I kept doing them.) I thanked him for his view, sat for a minute and weighted his opinion against the research that I have done, and decided that I was going to add weight onto my deadlift like I had planned on doing before he came up. After I did my next set, he came back up to me and asked if I had understood what he had said. I said yes I had, I have done my own research and I came to the conclusion that you don't know what you are talking about and you are giving advice when it is unwanted and unneeded. The guy started to say he was a personal trainer and that he had gone to school for this and blah blah blah (I kind of zoned out) I again thanked him and told him that I had done research and that I was going to continue doing it my way and that he didn't need to be concerned because I hadn't paid him for his opinion so he was in no way liable if I hurt myself. What I did was I took his advice, analyzed what I was doing, decided that the way I was going to proceed was the best way for me and I did it. When he interjected again, I could have been offended or taken it personally and thought I was stupid and beat myself up. Instead I stuck to my guns and developed a FU attitude for those few moments and proceed to bust out more reps. I know its not exactly like your situation now, but I think that if you can start to desensitize yourself from taking things too personally then it will help you immensely.
  2. awesome numbers man. I have done floor wipers with i think it was 70lbs not including the bar and it was almost enough. If I uppped it to 80 then I would probly be able to do them good. did you do them on the floor or on a bench? I have done both and I found that a bench was to narrow for me.
  3. out of work in 30min the off to the gym to Spartan it up! then home to finish gathering music for a wedding tomorrow

  4. did 3 sudokus last night. first two were the easiest I could find so that I could warm up, each took me about 10 min. the third was a "super sudoku" its 4x4 boxes in a 4x4 set up. Numbers AND letters. It took me 1:24:38...I felt RETARDED! especailly because I used to bust thos out in like 30 min at my other job and that was with kids interupting me. I really need to get back into doing those kinds of mind games. I do have some kakuros in my pocket right now that I plan on doing tonight as I listen to new music for the Wedding I am DJing tomorrow. How is everyone else coming on their second objective? Starpuck, you done destroying the walls and figure it out yet or does your tempertantrum have more to go? (said while looking for nearest exit and making sure there are many Many things between me and her)
  5. I HATE yoga/stretching... but I did 60minutes 2 days ago.
  6. With this I agree good sir...now go do another *harder* Kakuro!
  7. Well I have a kindle and a Ipod touch so I am down with Android and Ipod. What kind of game is it?
  8. yeah soooo I tried that whole using her as a weight thing. evidently me sayign I wanter to have her on top of me gave her a different idea hehe....
  9. Same thing happend to me and still happens depending on how I land on the ball of my foot. I tend to roll my foot to the outside so I land on the ball of my foot right below my pinky toe. By becomign aware of this and modifying my step to land on the middle of the ball of my foot, all of the "pain" and need to pop went away in a week or two. it is an annoyance but it will go away soon
  10. I just picked up a ball of chalk on amazon for 4-5 bux I think. also I picked up a "climbing" bag to hold the chalk paid another couple bucks for that
  11. finaly going to be getting back to the gym today. The fiance has been home the past couple days due to days off and I have come to realize that on days she has off, I don't get any workouts in cause she wants to spend time together not to have me go spend another hour away from her at the gym. Spartan workout #3 today, I haven't decided if tomorrow will be a rest day or if I will get up extra early and go work out. I have a wedding tomorow night that I have to set up for in the afternoon. I guess it depends on how late I am up tonight.
  12. keep it up and your character is gonna get a long walk off a short but tall cliff
  13. Then go do your sudoku and don't tell anyone else haha I didn't want to make it too hard
  14. I am thinking the same thing from jump squats/mountain climbers/burpees. my legs want to stage a mutany and would kick my own ass if it didn't hurt so much to move them
  15. alright is everyone ready for obstacle #2? I realized (after putting myself through it) that 60 min of stretching or yoga is ALOT! so I am going to drop the time restraint back to 30 min because I know everyone doesn't necisarilly have the same amount of time to dedicate as other would. If I don't hear back from people by tomorrow about finishing Obstacle #1 (with the exception of alienjen of course) then I am going to make the assumption that you didn't make it out of your bonds and will work the story to take that into account. here is obstacle #2!!! By calming yourself and assessing the situation, you are able to slip the bonds with a little bit of effort. Granted the inverted headstand that you did to see your hands better around the pole probably wasn’t necessary BUT you wanted to show whoever might be watching that you are not so easily captured. Rubbing your hands and wrists in an attempt to return the feeling back to them, you walk over to the table to see what your mysterious captures left of yours. After donning you cloak and buckling on your weapons, you decide it is time to find out what the heck is going on here. You pick up the letter hoping it will shed some light on you situation. It reads rerutnevda ediced ot emiT .sdnah ruoy ni si efil riehT .eno devol rouy llik lliw I ,em dinf ot tpmetta uoy fi or nni eht ot nruter ton od uoy fI .nni yrev siht ni snoitcurtsni rehtruf tiawa dna lodI eht eveirter ot era uoY .lodI nedlog eht dnif lliw uoy ,evac eht fo dne eht tA .eriapseD tnouM ni detacol srednoW fo evaC eht retne dna ,tseroF kraD eht hgourht levart ot era uoY .eltsac ym ni eno devol ruoy evah I .sdooW kraD eht fo egde eht no nni na ni era ouY .ouy rof elpmis siht ekam lliw I .ereh era uoy yhw dna era ouy erehw gnirednow ylekil tsom era uoY .fo skeaps dnegel taht rerutnevda suomaf eht eb t’ndlouw ouy saw ti fi niaga nehT .ouy rof tluciffid oot t’nsaw sdnob ruoy gnippils taht epoh I Initially looking at the message you have no idea what it says but you start to notice a pattern. Objectives *Decipher the message* Decipher the message and complete 2 sudoku puzzles. If you have never done Sudoku before then start with an easy level. If you normally do easy do advance up to the normal difficulty. If you do normal then do hard ect. If you normally do the hardest you can find then give either the dual Sudoku a try or move on to kakuro. If you can already do kakuro no problem then I hate you and I will kill off your character the first chance I get. (I am kidding…kind of….yeah I am…not….OR AM I?!?!?!?!?) here are a couple different sudoku links if you need them Link #1 Link #2 Link #3 as a fun additive why not give a list of the equipment that you are carrying with you?
  16. *twist* *Stretch* *Wiggle* *ROLL* All most there...WHOOOOOOO! *tips over and smacks head on floor* OW! stupid stupid bonds least I got out. (Did my 60 min of stretching yesterday and Damn do I feel better. Well my back is still tight but owell. How goes everyone else's progress with their bonds?)
  17. count me in too. 4 hours for bourbon bacon brownies...is that a little ridiculous?
  18. Trust me it took all I could do to sit beside her watchin tv while she ate some. Pretty sure (in my mind) I either knocked her out or attacked her then laughed maniacally while I stuffed my face with icecream....she naps now and I just finished my stretching. I feel like sleeping. I suppose I should post the workout from the other day but it is on my ipod and I don't feel like moving it over to my comp right now.
