Red and the Paranormal Monk (Part 2)


Red1263

Recommended Posts

So I really liked my last challenge, but I utterly failed at it after the first week. So I'm going to attempt it again. Only this time I plan on actually finishing it! Here's the story from the previous challenge if you wish to read it:

 

 

And here are the goals (with updates)

  1. Red learns a new Technique! - I've decided to teach myself a new Muay Thai technique: Elbow Combos! Using a video from a very successful Muay Thai instructor, I'm going to learn 5 Elbow combos. Utilizing my 3 rounds, I'll start slow so as to perfect form, and then I'll speed it up to add more speed to the combos. Now I'm teaching myself by watching said video carefully and then imitating what I saw, so I might have it perfected by the end of this challenge, but I'm giving it my damnedest! (I'm currently up to Combo #3)
  2. Body still feels different! - I liked stretching every day, but I slacked off on it last challenge. So I'm renewing it for this one. Stretching 5 times a week! 
  3. "I.. I think I remember something..." - A few nights ago, I lost sleep to an idea that I want to learn something new, it didn't matter what it was or how random said thing was, I was inspired to learn SOMETHING. This list was random, but I'm going to start learning something new and broaden my horizons. This is what my quick 1am list looks like
    1. Knot-tying
    2. Face Reading
    3. Lock Picking
    4. Finances
    5. Language Learning (Tagalog)
    6. Astronomy
    7. How to fly a plane
    8. General Business

Have you seen Annyshays' thread? She just has her goals typed out, then every day she copies and pastes , and whether she hit that goal or not. Very simple and easy to update.

Hello again. How'd the first week go? Lockpicking is something I've always wanted to learn, but it didn't seem feasible to keep the tools on you, making it a mostly unhelpful skill. Would still be neat to learn, though!

Hey hey Manarelle! The first week went pretty well, although there are mornings (the time I choose to exercise) when I can barely get myself out of bed, much less push myself. And you're right, but should one ever find themselves in a pinch, it wouldn't be a bad skill to have!

At last! An actual official update! Sorry for the delay folks, time is an unforgiving mistress! 

 

So Week 1 went ALMOST pretty well!

  • I exercised twice in the week, ALMOST making 3 days,
  • And of course I stretched on those days, as well as stretched for two more additional days making it ALMOST 5 times a week
  • I downloaded a Tagalog app to help me learn to pronounce the words and I ALMOST listened to it, had I not run out of time on my lunch! Curse you fellow co-worker who asked me about my future! *shakes fist in the air*
  • I also have some good news, in light of my grip not feeling as strong as I'd like it to be, I bought a pair of Gym Hand grips, and I've been doing 1 min of pure grip training 4 times last week. I think I'll add it to my days of stretching! If you're curious as to what I mean, look at the spoiler.

True, and you're right, I guess I just wanted to understand business finances. That's another one off the list! The focus is just general.

 

It's surprizing, how much stronger one hand is to the other, my left can barely make 1 min. but my right hand is fine all the way unto the end!

Hey he-- Hey! That's not very nice! That's true, but it still hurts!

 

*   *   *

 

So Week 2 has been full of Life!

  • Sunday and Monday, I was scheduled an hour earlier than normal and remembering that at the last minute (D'oh >.<), made me unable to exercise, I couldn't even go to Mass on sunday because I'd be late for work.
  • Tuesday, I went to Universal Studios with my Best friend and her husband. It was fun and I was strongly considering buying my own Harry Potter wand. But I couldn't because I haven't read the books, nor finish all of the movies. :P
  • Wednesday, I had a staff meeting at 6am, which meant I woke up at 4:30 am, and after the staff meeting had my car taken care of, so I barely had time to shower and get changed before I had to get back to work at 2pm. 
  • Thursday, due to my being horribly exhausted from Wed. I decided to sleep in a bit more than usual. So no exercising was done. I went to get my smog check done and paid for my stickers. Although some good news, I do have a Coffee date tonight. It's a girl I started talking to on OKC, we exchanged numbers and have had a couple of fun phone conversations, so tonight is the night that we're going to meet up for the first time.

Despite not having much of a productive Week 2, I did have some interesting things go on. The week's not over, I can still make these last few days productive! But thanks to WhiteGhost's reasoning I can successfully update my list:

  1. Knot-tying
  2. Face Reading
  3. Lock Picking
  4. Finances
  5. Language Learning (Tagalog)
  6. Astronomy
  7. How to fly a plane
  8. General Business

The date was pretty good, but I didn't feel any attraction to the girl. We were laughing and joking, but it just felt like I was talking to a regular friend and not to a potential girlfriend. I told her how I felt and made sure I got it out there before it went on further. She was upset but understood... I hope.

 

*   *   *

 

So today I was about to get 2 sets of exercising in.

• 1 min shadow boxing

• 10 pushups

• 1 min plank

• 20 bw squats

• 20 side to side lunges

 

I forgot to do pull ups, but I did throw in the newly learned elbow combos into the shadowboxing mix. I also watched videos about astronomy, it was general info and things I already knew, so I'm not checking it off the list yet, not until I learn something.

Nice update there Red.  I haven't been to Universal since they had the JAWS ride!  I think that was in like ... the 80s hah.   Wait... Florida or California?    I definitely wanna go and see the Harry Potter stuff.

 

I am also bad at dating, but I don't think any of my past boyfriends were immediate attractions at first moment.  It was hanging out, then being asked out, then exploring the next step.   That was a long time ago too though!   HAHAHA.    Now I just play Bioware games for my romance. ;)

Well, when I told her about my "not feeling any sparks" she took it kinda well, but she did feel sparks, so i felt kinda bad but it's better to do this now at the beginning than to lead her on and be a total douche. So I'm not sure if I've made a regular friend, probably not.

It was California, and yes that was a pretty long time ago. But they've got some really cool stuff now and if you do go to Hollywood, I'd be there to accompany you!.... errr strictly as friends of course... right... friends...

 

I honestly didn't see a future with this one. I don't know if that makes me picky or high standards but in terms of the heart, you can't settle.

Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis, so this. Having settled for a number of (bad) relations, I am constantly amazed at what being patient and paying attention to myself brought about for both my gentleman and I. It's worth it, you've got this. 

 

Also, grats on the adulting and workout stuff! I agree with WhiteGhost, making a plan for finances is easy, it's the execution and continued dedication despite it being boring and grown up and not fun that is difficult.

Also, grats on the adulting and workout stuff! I agree with WhiteGhost, making a plan for finances is easy, it's the execution and continued dedication despite it being boring and grown up and not fun that is difficult. 

Precisely. And I've watched many other relationships only knowing that it's going to end disastrously. So, I'm moving on.

 

Thanks! And for this challenge, I'm merely focusing on information, planning and execution comes later. This is merely a preliminary satisfying of my curiousity.

Today I kicked my butt into exercising on my day off, and it felt great!

  • 1 min shadow boxing (with elbows)
  • 20 pushups
  • 40 sec plank
  • 25 bw squats
  • 10 side-to-side lunges
  • 20 lunges
  • 4 pull-ups

I was able to do 2 sets with a 1:30 min break in between. Finished it off with solid stretching and I'm good.

 

I'm currently watching a youtube video about Brown Dwarfs.

Errrr... the Star Brown Dwarves. They're pretty confusing as the guy goes pretty deep into the details. But for the most part, Brown dwarfs fuse Lithium, rather than hydrogen like normal stars. and when you add more mass to them, they get denser rather than bigger, which is... kinda weird. And they emit practically no light, but massive infrared light. So you'd never see them, without special equipment. It's kinda weird, but I'm going to watch another movie, before my mind checks out.

I think stars and stuff are amazing.  I always find myself so in awe when I stargaze. :)

 Ha ha ha! Just for you we'll talk about dwarfs dwarfs! Like the ones from the Hobbit. Their armor that goes on their beards! That was awesome! 

 

I've always been excited when I hear about some astronimical phenomenon lie the 2 black holes that are going to collide in about a thousand years. Imagine what the possibilities that sort of event can provide!

Reasons why I wish I could live longer. How did the end of the challenge go for you? Any more astronomical dwarf adventures? Or did you get all stretched out and now they're elf adventures? :D

I know, I have the same thought process. The end of the challenge was surprizingly well! I'll do an actual update tomorrow. Ha ha ha, So far there isn't any more Space dwarves! So I'm going to start thinking about my next challenge. Here's a sneak preview.
