    Grumble Suffers in the Marathon Game.

    All the PRs! Also because reasons

    CM and the Veritable Smorgasbords

    I was going to ask if there was an option for all of the above. But, I think we'd all prefer that you actually survive. Personally I'd take the filet, because filet.

    Were these as terrible as they sound? Not mozzarella, but mesmerizing nonetheless..

    If not, that is definitely copyright infringement..

    GK debases himself yet further

    Lol. Now you tell me! It was an impressive level of concentration.. I would've been the guy at the end, doubled-over laughing at her whilst 'trying' to help.

    Lol. Sorry to disappoint, but it had less to do with the intensity of the run and more me planning poorly. i.e. heavier than intended squat/front squat Friday, fall asleep too early to eat sufficiently, then run fasted (which is a recent change), and then spend 15min kneeling over the pool pulling pine needles from the still-running vacuum because too lazy to go turn off the pump and it has to stay under water. >.>

    I mean, for all we know she could've just done this for like an hour and a half.. (Or just replicated whatever the h I did my last run..)

    Yup. Totally busted for his evil master plan of inspiring others to branch out their training lol Thanks!! I'd almost forgotten what a PR looks like lol Also, cat vids are always relevant. Always. I feel more relaxed already! Thanks!! It was a nice surprise considering I started off feeling like I'd completely forgotten how to squat. Guess it goes to show you can't always judge how things will go based on how you feel when you start.

    Hey! Happy to have you along, but boo on eczema! Hope that clears up soon HI! I think you started the trend, IIRC. You were/are doing GMB, I think?

    Zero week summary Eat at least 1200 cal by 8pm. Check! This was a nice mental hurdle to clear, since in the past it kinda freaked me out a bit to be 'that high' after dinner. No pre-packaged cereal (homemade muesli is ok--I don't put sweetened things in it). Well, I didn't BUY any more, but still munched on what's still in the pantry. Half point? Don't buy any more pb til the end of the round. Check! (Though it pained my soul a bit because it was BOGO.) NF rings & handstands Do the mobility drills from the handstands pack at least 3 times per week. Check! Included with daily yoga more often than not. Incorporate ring work into lifting schedule. Check, mostly. Did run a bit short on time to finish Friday. Mental health front: Log/journal/post daily. Log the happy things. Track the not-so-happy things. It may be there's a pattern to the madness. Check, except the weekend. I think I used up all my words. Do not weigh myself til the end of the challenge Check! Don't just stalk. Actually post in other people's threads. Check, except the weekend. Rolling goals: Daily Devo 7/7. Daily duo 7/7. Skin care 6/7. Walking. 7/7. 8k steps 45 weeks straight. 10k bonus: 5. #Yoga365 730. 7/7. Bonus 4. Don't forget front split practice! Check! All in all, quite pleased with the goals this week. Brain was a bit wonky at times, as it is wont to do, but I slept a bit extra Friday night and felt better for the rest of the weekend. BUT, the thing I was most pleased with was.. pause for effect.. new squat 1RM this morning! Those of you that followed my last challenge may recall one of my goals was to stop being afraid of squatting heavy. I didn't have a great deal of confidence that I would be able to do it, but for once I didn't have a nameless fear nagging at the back of my mind. And I did it! 10lb PR
  15. And so a new challenge round begins.. cue dramatic music.. you know what, why don't I include a track for you? When we last parted, this Warrior got run over by the strugglebus. I battled. I failed. I decided to try again. I failed again. I allowed myself some time to process, but ever-deepening despair can kiss my grits. In an effort to not only tread water, but to actually make some improvements, some goals are in order. (Well, maybe not 'in order' as in 'listed in some readily identifiable system', so much as required/necessary/needed/kinda-the-whole-point-of-challenges.. you know what I mean.) On the food front, the main battle lies. I did manage last round to scrape together a couple of weeks wherein I did not skip any meals. However, I still find myself scrambling for calories that aren't nut butter and/or cereal. I have been dealing more with sugar (and other foods I don't typically eat) cravings as of late, and I feel like it's all related. Eat at least 1200 cal by 8pm (this is the time I usually eat my last meal/snack). Idea being to eat more food during the day so I am not eating so much right before bed. No pre-packaged cereal (homemade muesli is ok--I don't put sweetened things in it). This should help cut down on overall sugar intake. Don't buy any more pb til the end of the round. I've enough to make it to the end of the round if I eat it rationally. And cutting it out entirely even short-term seemed to require my entire focus. On the work front, I bought the NF rings & handstands pack (because this girl loves herself some discounts!) Do the mobility drills from the handstands pack at least 3 times per week. Incorporate ring work into lifting schedule. Fun fact: I claim to hate inverted rows, but I actually quite enjoyed them this time. (Honestly. My biceps looked awesome, and with all of my upper back engaged it made me feel.. hulk-like. A strange sense of at once being strong/muscly and also weak. I dig it.) On the ever present/ever needed mental health front: Log/journal/post daily. Log the happy things. Track the not-so-happy things. It may be there's a pattern to the madness. Do not weigh myself til the end of the challenge Don't just stalk. Actually post in other people's threads. (Sorry in advance if you don't like cat gifs ) Rolling goals: Daily Devo Duolingo Skin care Walking. 8,000 steps minimum. Bonus level: 10,000. #Yoga365 730. Bonus level: 2 sessions/day. (Aiming for 3 bonus during work week, and 1 weekend day.
