I have ants in my pants for the next challenge and this one's not even over yet. This is bothersome.

Urgh, SAME.

 

I think it's why this one has been my least successful challenge of 2017. Ah well, just over a week to go. 

I'm more than adequate. Leave Kanye out of this.

I feel like Thanksgiving will fall in zero week, which gives everyone permission to gorge on canned cranberry sauce without fear of reprisal. Then we can all pretend the pumpkin pie episode didn't happen and dive into the challenge.

 

I'm going to brine my turkey in margarita mix this year I think. Just save a step.

Why do I love that stuff so much?? And I'm talking about the weird jellied kind (what my brother used to call "the kind that's shaped like the can")

 

the "shaped like a can" part is what brings on the maximum nostalgia factor. I refuse to serve any homemade, artisanal cranberry sauce. It must be burgundy jello with the can ridges in it.

Week three summary:

 

Just assume I did everything and ate more soup than a normal human should be able to consume. Except the forest bathing, dammit.

 

I did ride my bike 10 miles in the freezing rain yesterday but I don't think that was forest bathing. Although we were certainly wet.

 

Knee: steadily improving, no setbacks this week. I haven't hurt myself getting out of a chair all week. I feel like that statement makes me sound incredibly old. I found a Kelly Starret video on youtube that had a rolling technique that I swear was like a reset button for my knee. It still makes crunchy noises periodically but no longer sounds like deep-fried bubble wrap.

 

BP: no further improvement, still hovering around 155, but I started a new work project that has me a bit stressed out. This will probably continue to be a work in progress, although as I continue to lean out I'm hoping that will help it go down too. I'm down another 1.5 pounds to 206.5. My goal is to be sub-200 by end of year, cranberry sauce be damned.

 

Posture: I should have figured out a way to measure this. I'm doing a ton of back exercises and my pullups have improved but it's hard to tell if you're more erect or not. (zing!)

 

Working straight thru until thanksgiving, which both me and my credit cards are quite grateful for, but it will make working out this week hard.

 

I made the mistake of checking my Strava yesterday and my current bike mileage for the year is 1,562. That means I'm only 438 miles short of 2,000 miles. I didn't have a particular goal for miles but now that I'm so close to it I suddenly want - need -  to break the 2,000. It's like seeing shoes you didn't know you needed until you saw them. 

 

Week four feels like a weird short week but I guess it's normal.  I have to catch up with everybody's challenges.

Cherry all the way. But some other flavour might be better to wrestle in so I don't get distracted and just sit there eating it.

Challenge wrap-up!

 

Week four was a bit of a waste because I was buried in work, but I got a few bike rides in. Dying to go the the gym.

 

My birthday is Thursday and I bought myself a waterpik. I am officially Concerned About Flossing. 

 

Overall results:

 

BP: I haven't checked it this week but I'm assuming its up a bit because I'm working 20 hours a day and will be for the three more days. I'm kind of living on ambien and redbull until this job is over. BUT I feel this was successful as a challenge goal because I did get it down some, and more importantly I discovered that it is something I can calibrate with diet and meditation and so forth (although I never did get the damn forest bathing in; maybe next challenge). I also lost at least 8 pounds over this challenge which is good for blood pressure. And my butt size.

 

Knee rehab: Super successful! Mostly just by leaving it the fuck alone and not aggravating the injury constantly. I feel like its back up to 80% (ish). I'm still not squatting - I want to give another couple of weeks before I re-introduce body weight squats. I'm kicking ass deadlifting.

 

Mobility work was a big help.

 

Posture: I've got no idea, but being hunched over my desk is probably not helping so I think this was probably a fail. However my psychological spine is getting better. I had someone call me Saturday about a job, which I accepted, and then the person I would be directly reporting to called me Sunday and was a jerk from the first words out of his mouth (which were literally, "So-and-so sent me your resume and honestly its not that impressive so I wanted to talk to you to see if you are actually are capable of doing this project..."). I pondered this for about half an hour and then in the morning I emailed the original person who hired me and told them my schedule had changed and I wasn't going to be available after all.

 

Then the next day a producer I know and like a lot called an offered me a job for more days at a higher rate, so TAKE THAT JERKY MAN BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

 

I need a nap.
