  1. [Beyond the Rifts™ Quest Log] Challenge Journal: Date of 5.23.22 Weight: 238.2 lbs. Welp, it's been a hot minute! While Spezzy was down south for Camp Nerd Fitness, Rurik was pounding out house projects and touch-ups by the metric shit ton. Painting was done, boxes were schlepped, things were tinkered, Realtors were contacted, and house was showed! Mind you, we're in the entry level house market structurally and by price point, so when I say we had 10+ showings per day leading up to the Open House yesterday, we were killing it by the standards of this small sleepy rural city. It seems to have paid off, though, because we received 5 offers in total, and each was at or above asking price (which is absolutely freaking unheard of around here, especially with interest rates climbing and the real estate market cooling! Needless to say we accepted the best offer and we're in the escrew week waiting for the buyer to settle their financing and get a home inspector in. So we aren't quite out of the frying pan yet but definitely feels good to not be at the mercy of countless showings we have to be out of the house for throughout the day. Everyone (especially the furry half of the family) is exhausted and sleeping last week's tribulations off. At least we can settle and breathe and relax a little for now. Which means we're back to the grind. We can start building a routine just in time for our move next month to come along and shatter it For now though, and in honor of #MomoaMonday, I'm gonna push some bench press and get out on my Harley. Cuz there's finally some godamn sunshine around these parts... [Cover is for Cowards] ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Run/Walk: We walked about TWELVE miles yesterday since we had to be out of the house for showings and an open house... [Powers on Tap] Workouts: It's Push day whoop whoop! [Think Aggressively] ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Stretching: This gonna be real important this week. [Kill to Heal] ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Nutrition: I've been more mindful and intermittently tracking which at least has me further minding what goes in as fuel, so we're on the right track!
  2. I cannot be sure, but I'll take it! It's been quite the long, winding road these past couple of years but we're sure in interesting territory now. I suppose that means I'm as different as the territory which might take some introspection to figure. One day, one step, at a time, my friend
  3. I am excited for views (and morning temperatures above 35)!! Also wilderness (space from other humans) and winding roads (for two wheel zoomies)!
  4. I'm hoping for some sunshine today and I'll surely be disappointed but I'm going to huff some copium to cope with the lack of sunshine THIS WHOLE SPRING has settled me with.
  5. Gods bless Derek Weida and this video in particular. 75 Hard is no joke, bruh. Good work if you manage even 80% compliance, and it looks like you're crushing that already!
  6. I've been learning all about belly-oil-optimization in preparation for my American Slip & Slide debut!
  7. I made butter chicken last night too! But it was sorely missing some buttery naan bread...
  8. Okay okay but WHY MURPHY? Murphy sucks. Why Murphy when you've got Roan? Seriously have you seen Black Sails? Zach McGowan is a badass. Or Octavia or Bellamy or Lincoln or Lexa or literally just about anybody other than Murphy lol
  9. [Beyond the Rifts™ Quest Log] Challenge Journal: Date of 5.11.22 Weight: 238.2 lbs. Thank you, thank you... you're all too kind. It's nice to be back to the magical Land of Accountability, and boy oh boy do I need it! As many of you may or may not be aware, I am currently training to be HouseHusband v2022 in preparation for our upcoming relocation while I do some In-Law home improvements and whatnot. With that in mind, I'm going hard at finishing the house up for sale, getting all of our affairs in order to be living on the road for a bit, and - really, just making A LOT of lists to make sure everything in need of doing gets done. I've also been piecing my motorcycle back together in preparation to haul it with us to the next base of operations. So that's where I'm at. But on the daily it's been relatively easy to squeeze in that morning walk with Felix and finding time for a 30min dumbbell workout to sustain what muscles I have left while not completely eating like an asshole. On the Nerddom front, I've been dabbling in Outriders again and started watching the League of Legends Netflix show Arcane which has a really mindblowing animation style. Outriders and their Altered demigods has been my big fitspo lately, but I'm really just trying to put the work in right now. With that in mind, I've been tweaking my Gear = RL goals/accomplishments measuring system to suit a more Sci-Fi perspective than the Warcrafty fantasy-heavy format of yesteryear. Since I've been busy and therefore quiet this week so far, here's your #MomoaMonday & #HemsworthWednesday two-fer! This challenge is gonna be all about getting my dumbbell on... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD G- I mean CURLS FOR THE SWOLE GOD! [Cover is for Cowards] ☑☑☑☐☐☐☐ Run/Walk: Even though it's just me and the Boofer, we've stuck to daily morning walks in mom's absence. [Powers on Tap] Workouts: Dumbbell Push & Pull 1 each logged so far. [Think Aggressively] ☑☑☐☐☐☐☐ Stretching: Between house projects and tinkering with my motorcycle, I'd put myself through some weird postures and light stretching has been a lifesaver. [Kill to Heal] ☑☑☑☐☐☐☐ Nutrition: Hasn't been perfect but it's a significant step in the right direction so far.
  10. Hello! Yes, hi. Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening... I am here! Post-COVID, enduring COVID-Lung and COVID-Energy Drought. Time to get my ass back in gear though. Weighed in today at an embarrassing 238.2lbs which puts me back up there around my NF starting zone weight but with a significant amount of muscle (and knowledge) retained I am confident that number can be convinced to evaporate! I also did my first dumbbell workout in months today, did a couple of weak run intervals with the dog during our morning walk, and am somewhat more or less on track to meet my tracking calories today. I am encouraged by this shaky start
  11. Challenge Inspiration: Returning to a game theme that speaks my language... An untamed new world? Check. Untapped powers? Double check. Caught in a death-grip struggle for survival against human outlaws, monstrous flora and fauna, as well as other Altered superhumans? Sign me up! The world doesn't have enough struggle anymore and I long for the day where I deserve the title Apex Predator. Check out the last year's (and expansion pack coming soon) looter/shooter game Outriders while I try to live the Mantras for Survival on the planet Enoch, where the last survivors of humanity struggle to survive against a hostile environment and the corruption of their own - but don't mind me, I'll just be pretending I have demi-god superpowers and fighting to get my shit together!
