Bones...Round Two!Whoops, I originally posted in the wrong challenge sub forum... I decided to migrate over to the Rangers side of the house as I think itâ€™ll be good fit for this challenge! I am very excited about this one; the last one really motivated me and kept me focused (Iâ€™m an instant gratification kind of person, so thatâ€™s a big deal). Love this community! So, for a quick overviewâ€¦ I am active duty Navy and have been in South Carolina for several weeks for school and itâ€™s been sort of a â€œvacationâ€, if you will, from my life and work(ship). It has been very easy to fit in workouts because my schedule is very cut and dry and I have no other distractions (i.e. boyfriend, dogs, roommate, beer. ..Skyrim doesnâ€™t count.) . The overall idea here is, upon my return, to adapt working out to my constantly fluctuating ship schedule and to, in general, make better use of my time. I am the type of person who always wishes they had more hours in the day as I lay on the floor daydreaming for 2 hours after work. Enough of that! Here are my goalsâ€¦ 1. Pass the Navy Physical Readiness Test with an overall Excellent! The test is coming up May 20th. In order to pass with an Excellent I need to accomplish the following: Curl-ups- 87 w/in 2 minutes (Not my strong pointâ€¦) Push-ups- 39 w/in 2 minutes (Definitely not my strong point but they set the bar pretty lowâ€¦) 1.5 mile run- 13:15 (My strong point, hurray!) I will accomplish this by: A. Adding the â€œ100 push-upsâ€ sets at the beginning of my lift days (M,W,F). I will have to deal with the loss of gains I may have in OHP and Bench. B. On rest days (T, Th), I will time myself for 2 minutes and do sit-ups till failure and the P90X Ab Ripper X video. I would like to do the timed curl-ups every day, maybe every morning, but twice a week will suffice for now. C. At least one day every weekend I will run 1.5 miles. 2. Continue the SL 5x5 program! As I will be returning to my ship, I simply want to maintain consistency here. I will go to the gym even if itâ€™s packed with giant meatheads that intimidate me. I will go to the gym even if Iâ€™m at work till its dark outside and Iâ€™ll get stuck in traffic. I will go to the gym even if Iâ€™ve been invited over to a friends house after work/have something â€œbetterâ€ to do. Also, I will maintain proper form and ask for help if I feel like Iâ€™m slacking! 3. Fuel my body the right way! I will maintain a healthy weight by eating a balanced, clean diet full of variety! Specifics: A. Define â€œcleanâ€: Keep the majority of meals simple and with at least one meat/protein and one veggie/fruit per meal. I will stray away from anything frozen or boxed. B. Meal plan! I will make a flexible plan for meals for the entire week every Sunday, and buy groceries according to that. Iâ€™m going to set myself up for success by pre-marinating and freezing meats, pre-slicing frequently-used veggies, and divvying up snacks into baggies for grab-and-go. C. Juice during the weekdays! I am going to convince my bf to let me adopt his juicer and then make one green concoction every morning! I should pre-assort veggies and fruits according to recipe so I can do this quickly in the mornings. Also, Iâ€™d like to primarily use veggies/fruits that I donâ€™t care to eat rawâ€¦i.e. ginger, pears, grapes, beets, kale. Since itâ€™s his juicer, I should expect to be making 2 green concoctions every morningâ€¦ 4. Less procrastinationâ€¦more domination! A. Get my damn motorcycle license! Call and make the appt, get it approved through my command, go to said appt, passâ€¦Thatâ€™s all there is to it!! B. Make one piece of art per week. This can include drawing, painting or completing some kind of craft. Get those creative juices flowing! Iâ€™d like to post what I do here maybe for accountabilityâ€¦weâ€™ll see. Overall: Juice each morning. Eat clean. Craft once a week. Get my bike license.
