  1. Day 46: May 5th, 2022 Eating 5x a day is easy. Eating 5 MEALS on the other hand...that's a little different. I haven't had the calories I needed the last two days even though I did eat 5x each day. Sigh. This is going to be more challenging than I anticipated. I figured my hunger would just drive me each day... I've mobilized and stretched each day this week. I've only journaled 1x so far. I have not napped at all this week. I'm still looking for a solid spot at my day job when I'm in the office but I haven't found anything yet. Busy weekend ahead: Son #3 has a baseball game tomorrow night going to Scarborough Fair on Saturday to celebrate Son #1's birthday. I wish I had a medieval Batman cosplay to rock! Wolf
  2. May the 4th be with you... Shout out to my oldest son who turns 12 years old today (holy shitballs, really?!) and to my younger brother who turns 32. Love these guys. I'm very blessed and my heart and spirit are very full. Wolf
  3. You got this, brother! Progressive overload FTW! Wolf
  4. The angel on my shoulder is CONSTANTLY reminding me of this. The devil just shrugs and asks, "shall we fly by the seat of our pants?". You're already a step ahead by recognizing the SHOULDS . You got dis! Following! Wolf
  5. Lol, happy to have ya brother! I mean..... Day 44: May 3rd, 2022 I wrote in my journal yesterday. I worked out. I ate solid and clean(ish). 5x meals. protein shake w/ oat milk protein bar w/ banana 8oz tri-tip steak, roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts Costco hot dog Chipotle: double chicken, black beans, rice, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, medium salsa w/ 2x Chipotle vinaigrette I stretched. Today... I worked out using the garage new Batcave. It was a pull day so I did supersets of: weighted pull-ups and bent over row using 20# DB's as well as DB cross-body curls using 20# DB's with a drop set to regular hammer curls w/ 15#'s. I mixed in some KB swings and a set of single leg deadlift but all in all I got a good pump/workout in about 30 min. To Do List: Journaling Stretching Napping Wolf
  6. The routines range from like 14 min to 50+ min on a full fledge yoga routine. Typically if I do one after my workout, it seems to go better. But you are 100% right that ONE stretch wins over doing nothing. I'll try and keep that in the back of my mind when I'm pressed for time 'Preciate that brother. Figured it was easier on the eyes and represented my outlook on the challenge as a whole: Short and too the point! Wolf
  7. Push myself. Notes & Observations Journaling. Stop waiting for the perfect notebook to do it. You have more than enough sexy leather bound ones to start. Cardio. How the hell do you expect to keep up this "crime-fighting" ordeal if you can't keep up one night a week? The heart and lungs are just as important as your biceps and traps. Mobility. This one is puzzling. You always feel so good after a Smooth Panther routine...why not do them more often? Fuel. 5x a day is doable. I've already started and it amazes me how quick my body adapts and fast my metabolism gets going. I've become a great white shark... Strength. No excuses for Tues/Thurs. I have a good DB set + KB's + weighted vest/pull-up bar. I can get a good workout in before I leave for work. No need to go to the gym. I have my own "Batcave". Wolf
  8. I completely agree! I gotta make a ANOTHER phone call this afternoon before I go into work because the schedule STILL has not been changed. Day 43: May 2nd, 2022 "It's not who I am underneath, but what I DO that defines me." Christian Bale, Batman Begins Another challenge in the books. It's far from being my most crisp challenge to date...BUT, I stuck around for the whole thing, so I call that a victory in itself. Gym days are going smooth. I didn't miss a single day this past challenge...even when I was tired. I did miss a couple other things though: Journaling Cardio Mobility/Smooth Panther I can and NEED to work on those specific things moving forward. See you guys in part 2 Wolf
  9. I called Costco yesterday to speak with the manager who had my back last week. He was very apologetic about the schedule not being changed and said he would personally get this fixed. I also asked to have all this in writing so I have something to fall back on. We'll see what happens but it looks like I'm gonna have to stay on top of this for the time being... Nothing to update since yesterday, really. A sequel for The Batman has been greenlit. THANK GOD. It's been almost 2months since the movie came out and I'm still VERY much obsessed/passionate about it. I will take back what I said about "The Dark Knight" being my favorite Batman movie. The Batman is now my favorite. It's one of my favorite movies of all time if I'm being honest. This takes NOTHING away from TDK. IMO, Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker is still the best comic book accurate villain I've ever seen. TDK re-inserted my love for the Joker. The Batman re-inserted my love for Batman. Wolf
  10. Day 38: April 27th, 2022 People think it's an obsession. A compulsion. As if there were an irresistible impulse to act. It's never been like that. I chose this life. I know what I'm doing. - Identity Crisis It's been an interesting week... Still dealing with schedule conflicts at Costco. I actually had a "Come to Jesus Meeting" with one of the managers last week because when I asked about my schedule and why I was scheduled to come in at 3pm when I can't be at work till 4:30... his response: "Needs of the business." I understand what he means, but Costco hired me knowing the schedule I could work and it's been synergistic for the last (almost) 3 years. This manager I talked with is fairly new. Haven't had any issues with him at all since he's been there. But after he told me that "needs of the business" and "count yourself lucky you've had that schedule " BS I couldn't take it any longer. I went above his head to get things sorted out. Mind you...I'm pissed off to no end right now. It's taking EVERYTHING in me to stifle the raging storm inside... but I'm glad I was able to restrain myself from acting like a fool and handling matters in a professional manner. Things finally settled after I sat down with said manager and his manager. We hashed everything out like adults and things seemed to be good. Update as of today: my schedule is still showing 3-10:30 all next week and the week after is 3:30-11..and this schedule just came out today. *Sigh* I'm really getting sick of bringing up my schedule every other day because communication is ass at my Costco. Gym life is going well. I'm staying consistent at 3x a week right now but still wish I could go 5x. That seems to be the sweet spot for me. I'm eating a lot more veggies these days. I want to journal! I've only done it a few times this challenge. I don't yoga consistently. But always feel so much better when I do. #MakeMoreTime I'm experimenting with 5 meals a day (maybe more honestly) to try and add the calories for weight gain. Let's see how long I can keep it up. Wolf
  11. 'Preciate that my friend. It's good to see you . I will warn you with that deadlift complex...it'll make you second guess a LOT things. Like, "is the sky really blue? did I turn the stove off? Is a shaved ballsack truly worth the effort?" So, good luck, brother! Wolf
  12. I wish I could bring you the parts myself...how cool would that be?! I would just ask for a hug and home cooked meal in return Wolf
  13. Day 30: April 19th, 2022 All men have limits. They learn what they are and learn not to exceed them. I ignore mine. - Batman: Knightfall Last Friday's workout so incredibly brutal (and amazing). I did a heavy leg workout and was wrapping up when I saw my Gym Friends ™ about to start a workout. It was the Crossfit open (not sure which one) of Deadlift ladder 1-10 and back down with burpees over bar the same number of deadlift reps. WOW. I only did up to 5 and back down (with an additional 3-2-1 for good measure) at 185# but I did it. My lower bod was wrecked ALL Easter Weekend and I loved it! This was also the first time I've pulled that much off the ground. I typically do rack pulls at the "2" setting". #VICTORY Church was amazing. We also watched the Elevation Church Easter sermon before we went to actual church and the differences between the two was incredible. The insights. The Power of Resurrection. Denied 3 times. Asked if Peter loved Jesus 3 times. So gooooood! Easter was also the first FULL day off in a week. That was nice too. Back on the grind this week. Everything is looking swanky. Wolf
  14. That sounds very Tank-esque so I'm gonna say that's right and happy birthday to Sra Tanque! Wolf
  15. "Because when life calls for chicken breast...always go for the Thigh" - Tanktimus circa 2018 I'm paraphrasing cuz I don't remember EXACTLY how you said it when Heather was recording you, but I always remember that when eating chicken thighs. Wolf
