CM keeps it simple, keeps it safe

less of a secret, more just simple. i figured out some shit last challenge (pun intended) and i'm coming into this next challenge like

 

tumblr_m1ulcpoxB11qj7g7io1_500.gif

 

but with life things stacking up, i'd like to keep fitness things pretty simple for now. do a solid 4 week challenge of goals instead of changing them every week like i did last challenge.

 

Exercise.

I have a 5K and spartan sprint in this challenge so i'll be following the Tough Mudder prep plan. I'll be adjusting some of them to get in heavy lifting. i've also upped my pull up bar play by a minute.

  1. 5 Tough Mudder workouts per week
  2. pull up bar play 6 min per week
  3. yoga 60 mins per week

 

Food.

let's get some consistency here. cooking new foods and getting back in the habit of breakfast casseroles (or oatmeal bakes). also with the onslaught of plans and holidays, i'll be trying out something new with my alcohol consumption.

  1. consume 30g fiber per day
  2. take Mg at least 6 days per week
  3. only drink alcohol one night per week

 

life things.

10/20: friend’s board game night (plan to drink)

10/22: book club and family bday dinner (plan not to drink)

10/27: friends’s going away party (plan not to drink)

10/28: costume 5K and friend’s Halloween party (plan to drink)

11/4: Stadium Spartan (plan to drink)

11/11 – 11/12: visit bro in-law in Albany (might try not to drink all weekend...)

11/18: wedding outfit shopping; movies with Dad; friends bday (saa)

Here for this! And I'm always in when fiber is at stake. ;)

Wait, which kind of bar hanging? Either sounds fun.

ha! i made a goal for myself a while back to use my pull up bar at home more. i can't do a pull up or chin up but i can hang there/improve grip and do chin up negatives. either way - it was some good monkeying around :D

From someone who could barely do a pullup 2 months to 5 strict form, work on holding in the activated position. Shoulders pressed down and away from your ears/neck. The goal is to be able to hit a full minute in that hold.

 

Ignore the text, I'm just showing the difference.

yesss i'm kind of going back and forth right now between those two. i thiiiink i read somewhere that even just hanging in the second position is good for your spine, etc. but i will work towards longer holds in the activated position!

I think hanging in general is considered to be good for the spine, and either position will help with grip strength.  However, the first position is the one you want if you plan to progress to pullups/chinups.  The second doesn't really help at all, and I personally find it somewhat detrimental.

Week 0 – Wednesday

 

TM Day 7

5 rounds of:

10 OHPs with 10# DBs

5 mountain climbers

6 incline pushups

15-20sec bar hang

 

then did some yoga and a short walk with the pup. would have changed up the circuit to include some nice bench pressing but we just did the circuit at home.

 

two friends of mine and myself entered an Instagram contest to win 4 tickets to see fun home last night. we were the only ones who entered! so plans changed a bit and I was out late but oh man was the show and tour cast amazing. much feels.

I got in my fiber with an on-the-run dinner of an epic bar, an rx bar and a to-go pack of olives. I wanted a glass of wine at the theatre but resisted to keep to my one day/week goal! pretty sure I remembered to take my Mg when I got home.

 

fiber: 41g/30g

Mg: 2/5

TM: 1/4

Oh man, I never win anything! I should try entering stuff more often, lol.

 

I think you gotta be able to do go out and do stuff like this even if it throws your exercise schedule off. Totally worth it!

i enter a lot of contests but only ever win local stuff - which is fine! but like a flights paid vaca to california would be cool too. and yesss that was my logic with the evening. i've been saying i'd like to go to more theatre (we live in boston for pete's sake! and i love theatre). this was free and a show i've never seen but heard amazing things about :D soooo yeah it wasn't hard to make that decision!
