Holy shit, that boy sounds like he could be a monster in the best way. He needs the Soviet style badly, or else some bloody football coach is gonna ruin him.

One foolproof way to determine if someone is a genetic freak is to put them on Soviet programming....

 

Or Chinese. I guess any Commie training will do.

 

I'm not too worried about it; he's not interested in any other sport at all besides jiu-jitsu. His sister also picked up kickboxing unnaturally quickly (and regularly pulls 250+), so the genetic materials are there.

I'm back. Just been wandering for a while; I can't seem to make a dent on the household chores so I end up doing nothing, which is obviously not the answer. Training has taken a back seat. Diet as well. This is probably contributing to my feeling like garbage, so I need to find a balance. Feeling disconnected from work as well, probably because I haven't trained with them since my rib injury. 

 

On the plus side, I've started unpacking the garage, after 8 long months. Haha. And I mailed-in my long-expired passport. Two wins this week already.

Gonna recommend a challenge to prevent the wandering, and literally one thing a day. Not all the things, not one of all the things, just one thing. House chores. One house chore a day. There will soon be other challenges for other stuff.

One a day. Sounds reasonable.

Totally doable. It'll break the task-avoiding reaction, get some chores done, and keep you showing up rather than wandering. It is, IMO, Doing the Job That's in Front of You ™.

 

We're starting week 3. That's three more weeks to build up your do-one-thing habit before the next challenge. Come join us again. Monks need to practice sitting and doing their one thing. (Plus it's the holiday season, which is the best time of year to pitch in with stuff at home.)

So far I've managed to keep up with two regular things for the past week+: weighing-in every morning (which in turn keeps me from bingeing on stupid food), and keeping starting out each day by listing down 5 reasons why I'm going to succeed (which puts me in a pretty positive mindset and allows me to do productive things).

 

 

I hit an all-time high of 160+ lbs. which put me in the "obese" category. My HRV was at an all-time low, I was gassing out in jiu-jitsu, my joints were hurting, and I wasn't even as strong as 135-pound me. And when I sat and slumped down on the toilet I felt stomach rolls and remembered the exact point when body dysmorphia hit me at 9 years old.

 

I'm getting it together, one thing at a time. Next I will be back to reading every day, showering, walking the dogs, and cleaning-out the garage. I've found purpose; I just need to apply the pressure.

Well, best get to it, then. Life's not gonna tap out on its own. :D

 

It's been quite good so far. It's also starting to cool down in the mornings down here, so I figured I'd sign up for that Wim Hof thing that's been on my phone for 2 years now. It'll keep me accountable, it'll force me to exert mental toughness at least 5 times a week, and it'll get me to shower. All in one act--I might have found my 20-seconds of Courage action. I hate the cold. I've had hypothermia before. But I'm also a wimp, and every day I don't mentally challenge myself I become softer, both mentally and physically. F that.

Can confirm that the breathing at least has carryover to BJJ. If the opponent doesn't get a choke on me perfectly, it just feels like pressure now. You might get a similar effect?

Don't know, people mostly go for joint locks with me. I'm the notoriously-hard-to-choke guy in our gym. Haha

I think this is a textbook definition of "dubious honor."

Sorry for the disappearance. I had another one of those phases. Life's a mess, but I'm coming up with a plan. I just joined the 1stPhorm Transphormation Challenge. I'm paying and I have a coach to keep me accountable. When I try to coach myself I tend to dick around, because I know that my coach is full of shit. So right now it's water, macro tracking, and daily workouts.

 

Both my gyms have closed, obviously. I didn't really put a lot into my online platform enough for it to be a reliable source of income. Wife is stressed-out, I'm planning for a long plague period, so I'm currently working on learning JavaScript and applying for a coding bootcamp.
