Evicious: Climbing Korea, chapter 1OKAY!!!! I HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION NOW!!!! This is my second challenge (after successfully completing the last 6WC) and as members of the RPG Fanatics Guild were made aware, I will be doing most of the upcoming challenges at my new duty station in Korea! Gods, this place has a lot of hills!!!! And where there aren't hills, there are stairs! So, in accordance with the Challenge rules, here are my goals: MAIN QUEST Score a 300 on the PT test. 1. Perform 50 consecutive push-ups in 2 min or less 2. Perform 82 sit-ups in 2 min or less 3. Run 2 miles in 15:48 or less SIDE QUEST Get back down to 155 Lbs again. This is mostly due to the military weight restrictions placed on my height and age group, so I see it as an added bonus rather than something I'm actively working toward. MINI-QUEST Climb at least one mountain a month! Seeing as I'm in one of the most mountainous countries on the planet, and seeing as most of those mountains are accessible by train and a quick cab ride, I'm ready to get out there and get a hawk's eye view of this place. The last time I was in Korea I didn't really see much of it outside of the inside of a bar. I want this time to be different. My point system will follow the same format as last challenge: +1 pt for completing the day's workout, but this time I will allow for "making up" points on the weekends. I will also allow for additional points, in the event that I find myself feeling especially fit and motivated. It looks like my job here will not allow for my participation in the usual mandatory PT (I'll be working shifts), so all my goals will sit squarely on my own shoulders. YAY!!! :D I haven't formulated my own workout for this go around just yet, but I will post it as soon as I do. Most likely I will continue to do a routine very similar to the one I had last challenge. That's it! Challenge accepted, and I am ready to ROCK it!
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.
