  1. Big change of pace, I took a job and moved to WA. New apartment, new car, and a job that actually pays a salary--I'm actually feeling a bit optimistic. I'm going to have to set some appropriate goals and just live a minimalist lifestyle for as long as I can; maybe this is my chance to get my life back together.
  2. A little better. I'm going to try to do a Wednesday check-in, as that seems to be when it goes downhill. I probably stop paying attention again. SLEEP: Mon - 8h Tue - 7h Wed - 5.5h Thu - 5h Fri - 6.5h Sat Sun - 8h WATER: Mon - 64oz Tue - 64oz Wed - 32oz Thu - 32oz Fri - 32oz Sat Sun - 32oz FOOD: Mon - 132g Tue - 94g Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
  3. Thanks! Yeah, much smaller steps than I'm used to, but bigger than nothing (which are the ones I usually take). Haha
  4. SLEEP: Mon - 9.3h Tue - 6h Wed - 4h WATER: none FOOD: Mon - 175g Tue - 145g Week started out okay, got some sleep and able to hit some workouts, then I totally shit the bed. Trying to distract myself from the depresso by staying preoccupied, I hit like 48 hours of Skyrim and shared a bunch of memes. Did a bunch of tests which pretty much ate up Tuesday and Friday. I was able to mow the lawn and clean the garage today though. I'll try to finish those the rest of the week and maybe do some studying done. I got the powdered
  5. Tough week. Lots of work, only able to hit the three meals on Wednesday and Thursday. Kept procrastinating on the grocery shopping, and my treasonous wife kept ordering food without me. SLEEP: Thu - 4h Fri - 5h Sat - 7.5h Sun - 9h WATER: no tracking FOOD: no tracking
  6. Haha right now the 3 meals a day, because I doubt I'll order out that many times (though I have been known to surprise myself). The planning's for making sure there will be meals that can be prepped within 20 or so minutes. The eating out is still an option, but if there's food here I probably won't resort to ordering nuggies. Yeah, I'll probably get some flavor mix in. I'm eyeing maybe Gatorade or some other electrolyte mix.
  7. Same pattern in my last challenge; started with enthusiasm, and ended up dropping off. Honestly I don't even remember what happened the past month, but from what I can see at some point I saw a new psychiatrist out-of-pocket and I'm off my old meds and am just on one now. Liver's doing a lot better with it. Primary care put me on calcium blockers at some point, and I've been attempting to go to the gym more times but seem to fall off every other week, either from just feeling beat-up or injury. I don't recall being light-headed after practice for a while now, so that's probably good. Got a str
  8. Week 2 not as good. Totally lost track. Can't even remember anything that happened, really. I know I covered a lot of shifts at work, so I was at the gym a lot, and only missed Sunday training. Otherwise it was one big blur. Got my initial psych eval done on Sunday, and I'm glad to be under someone who seems to actually care for a change. We'll see how it goes. This week started out bad. I just got off adderall and was pretty much in bed all day Monday and Tuesday. Went to the gym to teach, but couldn't manage much more. Barely even ate much, and missed taking my vitami
  9. Midway through the year, and most of this has not been addressed. Damn. I guess I need to break these down into more steps. I'm also adding jiu-jitsu here, because I'm trying to re-light the fire in something I used to enjoy doing, so I'm forcing myself to at least do one training session every day, and compete when I'm ready between September and December. Tasks: Jiu-jitsu daily S&S 3 days a week Do an IT module a day
  10. Didn't check in all week, but I guess it's more because I was busy executing. Vitamins: Missed Monday and Saturday Workout: Jiu-jitsu every day except Friday, as I had to teach the class and wasn't able to roll. Sleep: 61 total hours of sleep. Looks like it's depresso time, though it doesn't seem to be as bad as a few weeks ago (doc told me to get back on the meds, though I can discontinue my mood stabilizer). Watch out for the memes! Got my annual physical, and I'm supposed to get scheduled for some labs, and a TBI appointment. I'm also supposed to see a VA
  11. Yeah, there's a huge variation in box programming. Mine had different skill levels, a "boot camp"-style program, and a competition team program. Our head coach uses OPEX programming. When it comezx down to it though, it is the community that makes the box. I'd say if you're hitting your WODs more than 3 days a week and your strength levels are decent, work on straight skill training. Movement efficiency allows you to save your energy and put as much of your movements into the aerobic zone. Kelly Starrett and Brian Mackenzie re-certified for their CF1 together, and what they did for
  12. Vitamins: Missed Wednesday and Saturday Workout: Attended Mon, Tue, Thu, and Fri Jiu-jitsu classes Sleep: Missed Tuesday for sleep. I'm ditching the water tracking for now. I was planning on doing more strength training, but I kept forgetting. I think I need to do it in the morning for it to be done. Attended a birthday party on Saturday, missed workout and ate like crap. Sleep has been weird. I think I hit a manic episode on Monday, and that's what led to the kick-start, but eventually the sleep deficit caught up to me and I was pretty much napping on an doff all day on
