  1. I did four wall walks today, which is the most I've done in a sitting. The more practice I get, the better. I'll continue with bodyweight work throughout the challenge.
  2. Sea Level back again for another battle against the robot masters. These are my opponents: Six days a week to conquer Gravity Man! Get upside down six days a week, starting with wall walks and handstands on the walls Battle Metalman one day a week! At minimum, once a week, walk 3 miles with a 20-pound plate. I got myself a GoRuck pack last challenge, and got a 20-pound plate mid-way through last challenge. I have a three-mile route around my neighborhood that I've enjoyed. I'm going to do this walk with the 20-pound GoRuck plate at least once a week. It's also a three-mile roundtrip walk to work, so bonus points if I do that. Six days a week, take on Woodman! Intermittent fasting six days a week, eating lots of vegetables. I started IF in December, and I feel great, and I've lost 10 pounds. It's great. My eating window is 11 am to 7 pm, with the bigger meal at the end of the day. On Saturday, I may have a cheat day and have a good breakfast with nice, crispy bacon. ! Conquer Quickman by challenge end! Read a book by the end of the challenge. Being quick means having mental strength. Last challenge, I finished Desert Solitaire as part of my Goodreads challenge. (I want to finish 15 books this year.) So I'll keep that goal going with another book this month. I started Sense and Sensibility this month. Most people may not think about men reading Jane Austen, but I've heard good things about her books from other men. So I'm going for it.
  3. Okay, I've done a poor job of keeping up with NF over this challenge, but I have been keeping up with my goals. On Saturday I did my three-mile walk with my GoRuck pack and a 20-pound plate. Sweet! It was great. Maybe I'll try to do it every day or multiple times a week now that the weather is improving. Stuff I want to do: Practice my handbalancing. I can do crow pose and very short half-crow pose. Handstand has always been a goal, but I've never practiced well enough. Practice QM. I've really enjoyed playing around with this during the challenge. I want to keep at it. Do GMB's Vitamin and/or Elements.
  4. Whoop. Coming back. Things are still on track. I am loving IF. It's surprisingly easy to wait till noon to eat... or later. I feel great, and it's good to have other things to do in the morning instead of making breakfast. Still playing around with QM. Trying to get some kind of physical work done every day. Did my three-mile walk yesterday. Things are going great!
  5. Glad to hear good news from you. Keep strong. Focus on what matters.
  6. You’ve sinned. You know this already. You have a hard road ahead. Christ is for you. Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. -Micah 7:18-19 Peace +
  7. Yeah, agreed! Animal Flow, like Global Bodyweight Training's stuff? That's what I learned, but I got their DVD quite a while ago. I'm not doing a program, but playing around with their stuff. Nice. I was actually thinking about you trying to remember which you did, Elements or Vitamin. Did you ever do Vitamin? I'm trying to decide which to do. (Maybe both?)
  8. That's some better air! Good stuff.
  9. Really having fun with QM and floor moves this week. Maybe digging more into this in the future!
  10. Yes, indeed. We've been having inversions too, but if you can get above them, they're pretty sweet!
  11. I got the GoRuck GR1, the standard model. I think I'll get a plate later this month.
  12. Yeah Marauder! So sorry about air quality. I listen to the Salt Lake NPR station, and I hear those air quality reports all the time. Yuck. Burgundy.
  13. Cool. I'm doing IF too, and yeah, it's easier at work. I like the asserting control idea. I'll also have to look into that Make Your Bed book. Stealing all the ideas.
  14. One week down. How'd we do? I: Gain Strength Bodyweight workout at least twice a week. Success. I did two bodyweight workouts last week. Practiced my pull-ups, did some divebomber pushups to help with my overhead pressing. II: Walk Do my three-mile walk at least once a week. Success. I did my three-mile route on New Year's Day and again yesterday. My GoRuck pack should arrive tomorrow. I'm excited. :-D III: Eat Right Intermittent Fasting (calorie input between 11:00 and 19:00) six days a week. (Saturday breakfast may be permitted!) Success I ate in the window between 1100 and 1900 every day except Saturday, which was also the day I ate bread (toast for breakfast). I'm enjoying eating more vegetables and trying out new recipes. IV: Read Read one book during the challenge. I also started Desert Solitaire over the weekend, and I'm about 31 percent through it. Week Two: Let's Go!
  15. Caught up! Woot Elastigirl! Good to see you again. That 12 Week Year sounds good. I'll have to add it to my to-read list. The last quarter of 2017 was equally meh for me, too. Glad to be back at it and seeking to avoid the valley of despair. (No one escapes the valley of despair. Best to not get in it.)
  16. New writing, new wolf pup, new Red Rising book, goulash! Great to catch up with you, wolf team!
  17. Today I was out of the office and away from my lunch, so I ended up 19 hours from dinner last night till lunch today! Intermittent Fasting! It was good though. When I got home, I played around for about 10 minutes of QM and had some salad and chili, along with some plain yogurt with homemade applesauce in it. Yum. I've put a lot more vegetables in my latest chili recipes. I used bison meat, left out the beans, and added zucchini, sweet potatoes, red pepper, and corn this time around. Any other good chili vegetable suggestions?
  18. Following! Sorry to hear about the flu. Here's hoping for a quick recovery.
  19. Thanks! Glad to be back. Got in BW workouts with pull-ups on New Year's Day and yesterday. Maybe it's a placebo effect, but I feel better when I don't have breakfast in the morning. Maybe I'm just feel better because I'm doing better and eating better? Who knows. Regardless, I feel better, and that's the good thing. Last night, I got a start on The Joy of Missing Out
  20. Thanks man! Yeah, I checked on my last post, and it was more than a year ago! Not cool. I think I'm going to start with this one: The Joy of Missing Out
  21. Hello Assassins! I've been missing from the Rebellion for too long, but I'm back for a new start. Happy 2018, and here's to an awesome challenge!
