  1. Week 2 Day 5 Friday Feb 24rd This week has been really long it feel like, not necessarily a "hard" week it just seemed to drag on and on. I'm pretty excited for this weekend though because my GF and I are going to see a Medieval Times show in South Carolina at Myrtle Beach so I know this weekend is going to be awesome I'm also hoping to get a lot of walking in (via Pokemon GO) and to see a new city. So also if I don't update till Monday night that will be why. Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 2/3] [F 3/3] [HS 2/3] -Today: Core work and Handstand training, plus I've got my second session at Flex Zone scheduled for this afternoon so I'm pretty excited about that and getting some professional flexibility help. Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [3/6] -Today: Good day so far packed a lot fresh fruit to keep my sweet tooth satisfied, healthy lunch of chicken, sweet potatoes, and veggies. Tonight I'm also going to prep some road snacks to save on money and so we've got some healthy options too tonight. Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [2r, 1w /3] -Today: Nothing planned but I may see if my GF wants to go on a short walk to a Pokestop or something later tonight Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -Today: Nothing Planned Doodle Gratitude: FRI-FREAKIN-DAY finally lol, choosing healthy choices, good classes, getting a new 5 star character on Fire Emblem! :D, Professional Stretching Assistance
  2. Good job on having a defiant win day despite everything! You should be very proud of yourself I feel awkward liking that post but I completely feel you on almost everything that you posted. When I was in college my peers and I had a very similar situation with one of our Professors who was seriously verbally abusive to his students. He had made multiple students outright cry in class for no real reason and said some seriously messed up things, like outright attacking his students on a personal level. When we went to the administration we had like 5-6 personal accounts, a binder full of all his e-mails, and an actual recording of some of the stuff that he said to one person in class when he "went off" on them. Then, like you, they did nothing. Almost a year went by and at least it seemed like they hadn't actually taken any kind of action. Furthermore from the response that some of the previous students had said (who has also voiced concern) because we were Seniors at the time it just seemed like they were waiting for us to graduate before sweeping it all under the rug. A few years later and I hear that they did ended up letting him go, not because of what we said, but because he pushed a student up against a wall and lifted him up (he had serious anger problems which we tried to tell them) so yeah uhh college bureaucracy I feel ya.
  3. Cookies are my super villain >_< I do love them so
  4. Ok awesome I found it! I set up for late morning so that way we didn't have to get up super super early to dive up there and then race. I can change it to early morning if your team would prefer, but do you know exactly how early that would be?
  5. Week 2 Day 4 Thursday Feb 23rd Was strangely tired today, I think I need to try and get to sleep earlier >_< Today was super long it just seemed to drag on and on with no real end in sight. Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 2/3] [F 3/3] [HS 2/3] -Today: Bridge- I can actually tell that I'm getting better with these stretches, I could not do a lot of them the first time I did the routine and tonight I was able to actually do almost the whole thing (it still sucked but at least I got through the whole thing lol) Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [3/6] -Today: Good day, probably ate a few too much at dinner time but I was just starving because of running today. Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [2r, 1w /3] -Today: Ran about 2 miles with Running Club today, nothing fast or hard but still got a good cardio workout in Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -Today: Nothing Planned Doodle Gratitude: Finishing my flexibility for the week, Massages, sweet potatoes, Archer
  6. I honestly can't remember what I put down as my preference and I can't seem to find it on the website anywhere. Do you know if there is a way to go back and change it?At least I'll assume not matter what they will just shove the whole team to the same time.
  7. Yeah that sounds like it would work out great
  8. Week 2 Day 3 Wednesday Feb 22th Super easy day didn't have to go into work till 9:00am and then we got off at 12:00 so it was a super short day and I was able to relax and play around and get stuff done. Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 2/3] [F 2/3] [HS 2/3] -Today: Front Splits and Lower Body Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [3/6] -Today: Pretty good day lunch was catered so I'm not exactly sure how my cal's were but I was fairly healthy with all of my choices so I'm going to count it as a win. Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [1r, 1w /3] -Today: Went for light walk with my GF this afternoon after she got home from work. Wasn't really more than 1m but it was still a nice relaxing walk. Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -Today: Went around to some of the gyms in the area and asked about personal training, unfortunately they were pretty unhelpful and basically said any of the five that I had been looking at were all pretty good. On the plus side now I'm less stressed about it since all the ones that I'm looking at are "good choices" Doodle Gratitude: Short days, short walks, helping and talking with my family, getting all my goals accomplished for today.
  9. Cool! Sounds good. I'll probably be jog/ walking it, its significantly more distance than the other races i've done I normally only do 5k's but I'm trying to increase my endurance and train for longer runs. I'm hoping to be able to jog most of it. Right now It's just me and possibly one other friend (had two people bail when they realized it wasn't another 5k obstacle race)
  10. Week 2 Day 2 Tuesday Feb 21th Monday night went very well got in some gaming and cleaning and lots of other stuff that I wanted to do too, overall it was a very good day for all of my goals. Hoping to keep doing the same today. Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 1/3] [F 0/3] [HS 1/3] -Today: Middle Splits and Handstands Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [2/6] -Today: Had an apple for breakfast and have a healthy lunch packed with some sweet potatoes, chicken and green beans. Then for dinner probably going to make a chef salad- yeah that sounds tasty! Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [1r, 0w /3] -Today: Running club today, the plan is to run a full 5k and see which students can keep up with me for my "advanced" group so we'll see how that goes. Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -Today: Wednesday I will go around to some of the gyms in the area and ask about what certifications they recommend. Doodle Gratitude: Pink Fluffy Unicorns dancing on Rainbows and Its raining Taco's (funny you-tube videos), Being silly, finishing levels in DQB, Making healthy choices, having completely good days.
  11. Big sheet of ply wood and then just ducktaped a ton of double walled cardboard sheets to it. You have to change the center of the target often since that is where you hit the most but I just put the most sheets there and it's working out pretty well so far.
  12. Week 2 Day 1 Monday Feb 20th Lets do this. Back up and running Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 0/3] [F 0/3] [HS 0/3] -Today: 1 Strength, 1 HS Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [2/6] -Today: So far so good, no breakfast but had a healthy lunch and am planning on cooking a healthy dinner too. Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [2r, 0w /3] -Today: Possibly a walk with the GF it's a nice day Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -Today: nothing planned Doodle Gratitude: Restarts and fresh weeks. Grading student work on an iPad. Good workouts. Simple, healthy food. Having our apartment organized and clean.
  13. Eh... not so great, Kinda got attacked by the evil super-villan Fun Distraction Man >_< hahaha... but at least I'm back and going to try again for week 2 Week 1 Update & Week 1 Review If I started slipping off of the wagon the beginning of this week by the end I'd completely fallen off. Thankfully after brushing off some dirt I've found my way back to the road and am starting up again and hoping to make week 2 better. By then end of the week I'd gotten a new game Dragon Quest Builders (kind of like Mine Craft only better) and got super obsessed. Then my GF and I decided to finally make up our "game-ing together" area in the living room so we did that and I got sidetracked playing with her (its super awesome to be able to game in the same room though) but I need to get better about doing my fitness stuff before fun gamey stuff. But we also moved stuff around and piled things in our kitchen so we ended up not cooking anything for the entire weekend and just eating out, which was horrible for my nutrition goals I'm sure. Well here's to a new week and a fresh start Goal 1: Train with Robin- Strength, Flexibility, and Balance [S 2/3] [F 2/3] [B 2/3] -This week: Got 2/3 for each of my Workout Goals, need to be better about doing these things first thing when I get home that tends to work out best. I did end up going to see a professional stretcher (lol) and actually signed up for 3 months (1x per week) of stretching assistance to try and help me with my flexibility goals so that was one good thing that came of this week. Goal 2: Train with Alfred- Record Nutrition & be within +/-200 cal of goal [2/6] -This week: Horrible I think I only managed 2/6 days and had 3 that were VERY over my cal goals :/ Goal 3: Train with BatGirl- Run/Walk 2-3x per week [2r, 0w /3] -This week: Not awful but still only 2/3 for this week. I want to try to start talking more walks after work. Goal 4: Train with Batman- Research Personal Training, & Ask about it [currently researching] -This week: I actually got all the research that I wanted to get done for this week done. Up next going to different gyms in the area and seeing what type of certifications they require. Doodle Gratitude: Restarts and fresh weeks. Grading student work on an iPad. Good workouts. Simple, healthy food. Having our apartment organized and clean.
  14. Nice those look pretty good. I've got these kunai and these regular throwing knives the kunai are much bigger and heavier and are great for throwing at actual wood (like I started by just throwing at the trees in my back yard and they worked great) but the circle on the end makes them a little awkward for throwing and kind of hurts my hand after about 30-45min of throwing. I like the other knives a bit but they are a little light and small for throwing at anything buy my cardboard target. Even so theyworks well since I made that one and just throw mostly in my apartment now.
  15. Ryuu1011 Trains with the Bat Family Challenge 9 (2017 Challenge #2) Feb 12 - March 11, 2017 Continuing many of my goals from last challenge, with a few modifications. These lists correspond to my own goal setting philosophy which I came up with for my 2017 Battle Plan consisting of Auto Goals (goals on the back burner/ habits), In Progress Goals (long term goals that are works in progress) and Strike Goals (goals which are within striking distance of completion). Auto Goals (My Challenge Checklist): [X] Pay off $150 extra on my Student Loans [ ] 1 Date night with GF (Set! We're going to Medieval Times on Feb 26th!) [ ] 1 NC NF Meet Up (Set! We're having a dance meetup on Feb 18th!) [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] Play with my throwing knives and bow In Progress Goals: 1. Train with Nightwing and The Robin's: Master my own Body- Continue GB Foundations (Upper Body, Lower Body, and Core) x1 each per week , Stretch (Front and Middle Split, and Thoracic Bridge) x1 per week and Handstand Series x3 per week. (___/12, ___/12, ___/12) Nightwing and Red Robin are both body weight training Masters, Nightwing was an acrobat and Red Robin was a Gymnasts. Robin (Damian Wayne) is a highly trained assassin from birth, so I'll be doing similar training to hopefully one day reach their levels. This goal shouldn't be too hard so long as I'm able to keep up my consistency. The GB foundation workouts are not too hard yet until they get to level 9 (their mastery level) which normally involves 5 sets of 15 reps or 5 sets of 60 second holds... uhhh they are rough. 2. Train with Alfred: Master my Health- Loose 3lbs, 1%BF, and ~ 1/2" off of my waist by recording my nutrition in MFP (___/28) everyday and prepping ~9meal per week (5 lunches (___/20), 4 dinners (___/16)) I'm sure Alfred knows a thing or two about nutrition and meal prepping since he has to keep the entire bat fam healthy and fed to fuel their late night escapades so I'll be studding under him to try and get my nutrition in check and thus my waist line. I'll be primarily using my waist and weight along with my body composition spreadsheet to guesstimate may Body Fat %. Starting Measurement were taken on 2/9/17 Starting Weight= 163.0lbs Starting BF% = 16.2% Starting Measurements: Waist: 32.5" Arms: 12/ 13.5" Calf: 14" Chest: 40.5" Hips: 33.5" Thighs: 21.5" Butt: 39" Neck: 14" 3. Train with Bat Girl: Master my Cardio- Run or Walk 3x per week, ~25-30min, ~5k/ 3m (___/12) I don't even want to guess just how much cardio the bat family gets in a week but by training with bat girl hopefully I'll be able to keep up with them soon. This goal might be a little bit more difficult, and might get changed depending on how my foot is feeling/ how much I think I can take. My feet have been having some problems which is going to definitely slow my cardio progress but I'd rather be safe than push myself past my limits again and hurt my feet for a second time. 4. Train with The Bat: Master my Training- Research Personal Training Certifications, Go to 3 gyms and ask what types of Certifications they require, Select a certification and start saving for it. ( [ ] Research, [ ] Champions, [ ] Snap Fitness, [ ] Life Time Fitness, [ ] Savings Started) There is no better master of personal training than Batman himself. He has trained many partners and continues to be train and improve himself mastering his own body. (I mean look at that picture that suit is practically painted on!) I am thinking about becoming a personal trainer, perhaps as a complete profession swap or just part time, I'm not sure right now, but for this challenge I just want to do my research and figure out the best path to start down on. Challenge Strike Goals: 5. Work on my Batcave: [X] Remove my old bed from the workout room [ ] Clean up and Organize the Workout Room I couldn't train with the entire bat family with out without working on my batcave too! By the end of this challenge I am hoping to get our spare room organized and start turning it into an actual full workout/ art studio for my GF and myself so we can workout from home and do art stuff too, though I'm setting the goal at just cleaning and organizing for right now.
