Darkfoxx 8: Moving Through 2014 With A Slew of Kicked Asses In Her Wake Darkfoxx 8: Leaving No Ass Unkicked Darkfoxx 8: Kicking All The Ass In 2014 Darkfoxx 8: Never Leave An Unkicked Ass Behind Ok, so I went off on a little tangent when trying to come up with the theme of this challenge cycle. My Die Hard references evaporated months ago, and Iâ€™m too lazy to look for awesome nerdy .gifs. So, tangent time. Like my girl and NF partner in crime Fonzico, this is my one-year nerdaversary as well. W00t W00t. <<< hey, lookee there, itâ€™s a gif. Boom, bitchez. I canâ€™t freakin believe Iâ€™ve stuck with this Nerd Fitness business for a year - a whole. freakin. year. And Iâ€™m not even â€˜over itâ€™ yet. This is pretty much unprecedented, and I have my merry band of constant friends to thank for it. Thanks guys for the support, the harassment, the ass kickings, the internet parties, the woots, and the loves â€” I totally wouldnâ€™t still be on this journey if I had to go it alone. *ahem* Tough it up, there, Darkfoxx - enough of the mushy stuff and on with the show. Main Quest My overarching mega goal still hasnâ€™t changed - Iâ€™m still pumped about doing Mudderella in May. This has been my goal to work toward for 3 challenges now, and Iâ€™d like to think that everything I have done in that time gets me a little closer to my goal of finishing all 5-7 miles without dying. Iâ€™m still nervous and excited about Mudderella - and I only have 5 months to go! Goal 1 Fitness. Iâ€™ll fully admit Iâ€™ve been a complete and utter slackass the last week of 2013/this first week of 2014. I finished last cycle (barely) - and then family came to town. Sure, we walked a bunch (I clocked 9 miles one day, with 3-something as my lowest day), but thatâ€™s all I did. And I ate like there was no tomorrow. Carbs akimbo. This week Iâ€™ve done exactly zero of the things. I nursed a cold and watched Twilight Zone. Twilight Zone isnâ€™t going to help me get to Mudderella. Working out will. So, Iâ€™m going back to my old favorite - HasFit. Iâ€™ll be starting up the crazy intense Hero 90 program at the start of this challenge, and it will run me all through this cycle and the next. After this craziness, Iâ€™d *better* be able to Mudderella - it looks intense (in a good way). Iâ€™ve missed Coach K and it will be good to have him egging me on again. Goal 2 Metrics and Moar metrics. My diet has gotten away from me at the end of this year - hellooooo white potatoes - and I need to button that shit back up. Goals are the usual 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein and 1500 or so calories. Iâ€™m still doing My Fitness Pal - and Iâ€™m adding my new buddy - the FitBit Flex to the mix. Not only will I be tracking my food this go round, Iâ€™ll also be tracking water (again - I slipped on my water intake during our weeks off), sleep patterns, steps, and fitness minutes. Goal 3 Keep this â€˜moving rapidly through spaceâ€™ thing up a little. This canâ€™t be a hard and fast goal. I know HasFit is going to completely kick my ass. I know itâ€™s the middle of winter. But â€¦ I found myself actually enjoying going out and doing my Zombies, Run 5k trainer â€” even at 30 (or even 20) degrees. And I have the gear for it, so Iâ€™d like to keep it up. I will consider even one extra time out a success here. Week 3 has a prescribed 60 minutes of cardio (+ 6 minutes of abs) day - and Iâ€™ll definitely go out for that - the plan is to do 2 regular Zombies, Run missions for that workout. But I want a little more. Iâ€™m not sure when Iâ€™m going to pull this off - should it be on the day I do a 30-minute HIIT workout? after 20 minutes of MMA training? give up one of my coveted days off? It might kill me, but Iâ€™d like to do it once. And if I never feel like I can manage it? Well, that will be a shame, but I won't let it ruin my jam. Life Side Quest Address the DVD mess. Iâ€™ve been waaaaayyy too lazy to keep up with the semi-broken DVD storage solution I have (all DVDs stored in paper sleeves in an apothecary drawer chest in alphabetical order). I have tons of DVDs that need sleeving - and things need to be gone through to ensure everything is in order. Ideally, I need to come up with a new system that will actually allow me to figure out what all I have - but Iâ€™m not holding my breath for that one until I make the jump to all-digital storage. For now, Iâ€™d be happy with all my DVDs being safe and orderly. Fitness Side Quest The handstand craze from a couple of months ago sounds like fun. I think Iâ€™d like to work on that. No big pressure to perform here, Iâ€™d just like to give it a go during this challenge cycle.
