Because I Refuse to Quit: Tanktimus does a no Hype Challenge


Recommended Posts

Hype died last challenge, so I'm carrying on with out it. Discipline will suffice and thrive where hype failed. 

Nothing has changed on goals.

 

1. 8 lift days. I am a person who lifts twice a week, using the juggernaut program as a guide to get STRONG. This has not changed.

 

2. 6 Yoga Days. I am a person who does yoga to get and stay flexible. This promotes anti-fragility and prevents injury. NF yoga is awesome, and I noticed some progress in the last challenge. This stays.

 

3. 6 Walk days. I am a person who goes on walks for physical and mental health. I live next to an awesome trail. It's beautiful and lined with live oaks that are going to stay green all winter. It is energizing for the body to walk, it is energizing for my soul to walk among such beautiful trees. I am a Ranger after all.

 

4. Cooking. I am a person who cooks and eats Paleo. Twice a week I allow myself to vary from this. This is the most important goal for getting my waist down to a healthy level. I'd really like to get my weight down to 245 by the end of the year. I am at the bottom end of pre-diabetes and want it gone by my physical in March. I had allowed 3 variances in the past, it was too much. I also track what I eat on MFP.

 

5. Domestic Rangering. I am a person who keeps his home clean and neat. I do laundry and clean the place regularly.

Trust not to hype, it has forsaken these lands.

You may hype all you want. I'd rather have you hyped than not have you here at all.

 

Today is a good day. Sra. Tanque is off this week, so we had breakfast together and talked for a bit before I went to go lift. 

Lifting is good. I am stronger than I was when I got up this morning. Hype has died and left behind something stronger. An Iron will no rust will decay and no blow will shake. There is in me a strength of will that will not yield and will trudge endlessly towards the goal. Discipline is stronger than hype, and in abandoning it I have found I don't need it.

A day may come when I abandon my goals, when I forsake the iron forever, a day when I never stretch again, a day when I eat myself into oblivion.

 

 

BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY!

I will attempt to not lose the thread like I did last challenge. I will also leave the hype at the door when I walk through these sacred halls, though I think I'll do what I can to hold on to it when I'm in my own challenge hall.

 

May the Force be with you on your journey.

Don't worry, hype will be back. It's merely on a journey.

Tank, hype has been dying for a long time. Ever since Shaar left for the Green Place. Someone is going to have to find her and bring her back.

Does anyone know how to reach her IRL?

 

I don't want to over sell it, but I'm getting excited for the battlespeech on Sunday. I rarely have an idea this early the week before.

Sometimes the ones I feel the most confident about are just accepted and the ones I throw together on the fly and think are just punts get great response.
