The Year of Living Trippily, Part Two: Themeless (DJTrippyT)


DJtrippyT

Recommended Posts

Clearly I am behind the Ranger curve as there are so many fine challenges already up. I am almost clear of the holiday (I just have to get through tonight and tomorrow) which is good because my level of holiday fatigue is currently summed up here:

 

 

 

I toyed with many themes but I failed to make any of them coherent so it's just a list of objectives this time around. Stay tuned for cat gifs and maybe 80's b-boy dancing if you're lucky. Do you feel lucky?

 

Year of Living Trippily: 

I need to get a mammogram (and probably a physical, too), and I want to start an instagram for my street art. 

I also want to keep working on a new side hustle because I need to make more money.

 

Nutrition Objective: 

make sure I drink a protein shake or eat a pre-planned snack after workouts, as I tend to binge-eat later if I don't.

 

Fitness Objective: add unweighted OH squats back into workout routine (i.e. using a broomstick), and also step-ups (unweighted or light weight). I want to see if my knee can take the squatting and re-train that movement, and OH squat has a little more bang for the buck than just a bodyweight squat because you have to stabilize your upper body.

 

Financial Objective: No-spend January. Not spending any money except for groceries and gas, so that I can reach a savings goal. Finding of free activities is encouraged. 

 

I will track my vitals and post them once weekly: blood sugar, blood pressure, weight, waist measurement

 

I will avoid news sites during the day because they make me want to set things on fire

 

I will stop watching the "Baba Yaga" sequence of John Wick on my phone and drooling over Keanu Reeves and his sledgehammer*

 

Simple enough, really. Below is my progress on The Year Of Living Trippily thus far. I have to start thinking about the Crossfit Open since it starts end of February and one of the YOLT goals is to enter (I've always wanted to but never had the nerve, which is ridiculous). I'll be in the Master's 45-49 division. So my workout programming will change slightly this go-round to work towards that. I also want to train my back more without working my traps, as they're getting weirdly big again. 

 

 

 

 

 

* I will not do this. Who are we kidding here.

Now, now, there's plenty of me to go around. Seriously, there's plenty, at Christmas we had three types of pie.

 

Vitals for challenge beginning, while I'm thinking about it (checked all these today)

 

 

Waist: 43", ouch

Weight: 209, not as bad as expected (see three types of pie, above)

BP: 164/94, not great but I haven't been doing any of my mitigation stuff and the holiday was pretty stressful. Also I went to see a band last night and OMG the amount of cigarette/cigar smoke in the room was unreal.

 



 

we went to see a punk/rockabilly band that were having a reunion for the first time in 15 years. BF and I used to be on the edge of that scene when we were first together. All the same people that used to hang out there were there for the show, but instead of being cool and hip they were all talking about what crossover would fit their carseats and how standing on the concrete floors were killing their lower back. 

 

The ratio of cigarette smoke to oxygen was approximately 1/1. I took my clothes off in the garage rather than stink up the house.

 

 

I forgot to check my blood sugar before I ate lunch; I'll start checking it again tomorrow. I think I need new stabbies for the monitor (technical term). Should have bought those today before the no spend kicks in tomorrow... maybe Walmart is still open. Or I just get the sample with a ninja sword, or something.

Today is your lucky day!

 

 

 

Monday: Very little to report, as it was new years day and all I did was watch football. Did not work out, did not spend any money.

 

Tuesday: Tuesday was a good day. Very productive. 

 

Workout: did 45 minutes on bike trainer in AM, then gym in PM

 

Fitness: Did 3 sets of 5 reps OH squat, with 10-pound kettlebells. VERY EXCITING. No knee pain, although it was twitchy earlier in the day. On the downside, my pull-ups went to shit over the holiday.

 

ETA: I took my sneakers off for my OH squats because I wanted to be super stable since I haven't done them in so long, and I'm wondering if that why they felt better. Might be a better hip/knee alignment without shoes.

 

Nutrition: I took one of those little 100-calorie mini bags of nuts and ate that after workout. 

 

No spend: No discretionary spending, I did have to stop at the store and buy toilet paper. Maybe that's discretionary for some people. I dunno.

 

No news sites, so no arson

 

No John Wick drooling/heavy breathing. 

 

I read some very good articles on Crossfit Masters training, which could all be summed up with, "Don't be stupid."

 

I'm not working this week (except for some paperwork I'm supposed to do today) so I gave myself a cleaning assignment for each day. Tuesday was the front stoop and the downstairs bathroom. Someday I will write my memoirs, and they will be titled How Does This Goddamned Bathroom Get So Dirty When It's Only For Guests. The sequel will be called Holy Shit There's a Giant Spider In the Shower.

 

Today (wednesday) is off to a slow start. I spent part of the morning laying out an 8-week workout plan that I have GOT to stick to and not RangerBrain all over the place. I'm supposed to be working on wrapping my last job but clearly I'm fucking off on the internets. Later today I'll ride the bike trainer - I'd rather ride outside but it's like 22 degrees out. 

 

gotta go get shit done

I am insta-stalking you too. And @TiffanyD. And elastigirl I think. ALL THE INSTA-STALK

 

(btw I'm following you from my other account @constantholidayfilms which is my main insta. the trippynerd one is just a place to put images so I can link them here - I can't get flickr to work.)

 

 

Wednesday sort of fizzled out. I didn't get my paperwork finished and so I didn't work out.

 

Fitness: No OH programmed today anyway

 

Nutrition: Ate good. That's not very grammatical. Did not work out so no need for post workout snacks.

 

No spend: Success! Spent no money at all.

 

No news sites: [shifts weight from foot to foot, looks around guility]

 

No Keanu: succeeded, but only barely

 

Year of Living Trippily: Found out my new health insurance application got approved so I have health insurance and can move forward with scheduling a mammogram and a physical. I wonder what it's like to live in places where you don't stare sleeplessly at the ceiling wondering if you'll be able to afford your healthcare.

 

Thursday I was supposed to ride the trainer but I was still chained to the desk with paperwork, which I finally got done at like 8 pm. Was just about to get ready when BF announced he wanted to us to go see The Last Jedi so we did that instead.

 

Fitness: zip

 

Nutrition: Ate good. Had homemade chicken broth with soba noodles and some pre-sauteed veggies in it. 

 

Spending: Thursday is grocery day, so that's allowable spending. I bought more lunch-type food than I normally would because I'm trying to limit my eating out for both nutrition and no-spend goals. 

 

Didn't spend any other money; BF paid for movie tickets. The Last Jedi is deeply weird, by the way.

 

News: Success! No news sites. I did check the twitter account called EmoKyloRen which is the funniest thing ever and probably the best use for twitter which seems to be a cesspool otherwise.

 

 

 

Just a thought.

I hear you sister, I’ve been much calmer since I dumped a bunch of my earnest-leftie news feeds and replaced them with parody Star Wars and bike racing feeds.

All the cool kids are posting on Instagram; I should figure out how mine works.

I’ve been contemplating building a 2X4 version of this:

snazzy! I have my trainer set up in my office at exactly the right distance so that neither my regular eyeballs or my reading glasses can focus the computer, because squinting burns extra calories.

Week one summary, because I'm to lazy/overwhelmed to post everything:

 

Nutrition: Excellent, ate a healthy snack after each workout.

 

Fitness: Did OH squats one day, yay. did a double workout Friday that the knees - and indeed the rest of me - wasn't all that happy about come Saturday. It's fine now though

 

Financial: Excellent, total discretionary spending was $6 for whole week. About 75% to this months savings goal.

 

News sites: utter trainwreck on either wednesday or thursday, good every other day. Checked them all briefly saturday to stay caught up and see if I need to build bomb shelter in basement. Kylo Ren twitter still awesome.

 

Keanu videos: I may have wrung all the details I possibly can out of that clip (which, drooling aside, is fabulously directed and cut, and the use of color/tones is brilliant). May have to check back again later... it's the only way to be sure.

 

I have nothing else to offer except this polar bear.

Forgot to update my vitals. They're actually good!

 

Weight: 206,  down from 209

BP: 150/90, down from 164/94. 

waist: 42.5, ish

still not tracking blood sugar due to lack of stabbies, I mean lancets.

 

Monday: 

 

Cleaned house all day so no workout. Spent $18 on middling tex-mex food for lunch because I had to get out for a while. Boo. It's the first lunch out since new year's, though.

 

News sites: none, much better for the brain/blood pressure I'm finding. I did read all the sportsball news. Then I watched the football game

 

I found the training featurette for the Last Jedi which needs to be about 15 minutes longer and have 120% more Gwendolyn Christie.

 

I have never identified with an actor more than when Daisy Ridley whacks herself in the head with her bowstaff.  WE ARE ALL YOU, DAISY.

 

 

 

Tuesday:  a good day.

 

Workout: Went to gym. Crowded with football kids. I gave them a run for their money.

 

Warmup, 5 miles on stationary bike

 

OH Press: 3 sets at #95, 4 reps each. The hang clean for this is such a bitch. I missed the first attempt on the last set, but I got four reps eventually. It janked my knee hard. Ouch.

TBar: 3 sets, #70, 6 reps

glute bridges: in solidarity with @deftona. Ass work! It's good for you.

Pushup: Can finally do full pushups instead of the ones where you're kneeling. Can only do 5 per set, though

Step-up: 3 sets of 15 each side. Body weight only, as I'm just reintroducing these and they're more for conditioning than strength. No knee pain which is GREAT.

Toe-to-bar: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA first time with these, not even close.

 

Nutrition: I had a strawberry cereal bar from Trader Joe's after workout. It tasted like sadness and missed lifts. It did the job though - we went out to dinner after the gym and all I got was an appetizer. Ate healthy for the rest of the day.

 

Financial: A spendy day. I worked out of a coffee shop during the day so I spent $6 on a latte, and then the dinner out was $9. I figured out yesterday that I'll be able to skip groceries this week so that will offset those spends some, but still bad.

 

News sites: None during day. Brief check before dinner just to stay current.

 

Keanu Videos: I was thinking today's workout was the sledgehammer so I just had to confirm the, ummm, technique...

 

I have to go do yoga now, my shoulders are killing me from the gym. Boyfriend has food poisoning again, so I'm shuttling gatorade and snacks upstairs between work stuff.
