day 0-1 update:

 

fuck it, I'm eating all the junk food out of my house.  It will all be gone today.  Tomorrow, I'm on it.

Mobility was good...  my legs hurt from heavy triples of front squats of 7 round EMOM and then a 28-21-15-9 of thursters (75lbs) and cal rows.

And the compulsive urge to roll up attributes and assign skill proficiencies is officially triggered. That's a Vengeance Paladin if I ever saw one...

I was thinking it was a Brahlkyrie, but knowing Tank, its an angel.  

 

Honestly, it was the thing I liked best when I google image searched "Badass Paladin." In my head it's a high level paladin who's had enough of that Dragon's nonsense and decided to turn on Smite Evil (my favorite Paladin feat of them all).

Remember the Avenger from 4e? Yeah yeah, 4e bad, 5e good; but he was a divine powered striker and he had some fun points to play. Unbalanced and unsupported sure, the poor bastard was released just before Wizards went on that Essentials kick that was really DnD 4.5e, but the concept didn't suck!

Vaguely. My exposure to 4e was severely limited, mainly because I didn't have a group to play with at the time. Still don't. :(

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

And that is why I've never been able to play DnD...my oldest brother would often say "Make some characters and we'll play" to me and my friends, we'd make chars, then bro would laugh and leave...

Update time:  Getting back on track nutritionally is hard.  today should be 2 days in a row.

 

I have crazy DOMs from monday and tuesday.  I think its more from not fully healing from the Flu.  I'm trying to rest to get well, try xfit again on Sat.

I know you're frustrated, but you're being smart. Which is both DUMB AND FRUSTRATING. Good job on that one.

I can't compete on y'all's gif level, and ain't even gonna try - 

 

But I did want to say that I just bought a copy of the Discipline Equals Freedom Field Manual and will start it as soon as I finish my current non-fic. So, thanks. (If I keep buying a book every challenge based on someone else's challenge theme, I'm gonna need a bigger Hobbit Hole.)

I love his break down of war novels.  They remind me I have no idea what suffering is, and I need to keep my discipline and to

Image result for work harder

 

That's why I can't let @Urgan let me off the hook for not getting sleep and not working out and not eating right cause I have a 4 week old.  I can't control 2 of those things, but I damn well can control what I stuff into my pie hole.  Which, I did a great job of today.
