Farflight grows the f@#$ up...a little

Recommended Posts

A lot of things going through my head as I've been thinking about this challenge...even considered not participating...

1bc34d6280fe45460f0cf46657cc5505.gif

 

Which isn't helpful in the least. In an effort to find my voice...and use it...I'm going to have to start listening to myself, and those around me. I don't know what the future holds but I've got several communities supporting me, so that's something.

 

Historically, I've let life dictate to me what I'll do and pretty much just let life and others decide my fate and walk over me. Needless to say, it doesn't normally work out well.

And I have historically left it at that. Just being a doormat and not speaking up. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of being the sidewalk. Well, if I let people do that...its my fault, not theirs. Time to take some ownership.

 

For this challenge, I'm thinking externally and internally.

 

Externally, I'll continue working on stronglifts, and start looking deeper into my nutrition. I keep hearing/reading about you guys and macros. I know what a macro IS, but that is about it. 

Internally, tenor.gif?itemid=5161418, it's time to kind of grow the f up...seriously. Realized this after reading @spezzy's adulting challenge. I'm not saying I'm gonna grow up a lot...but I really need some improvement in this area. Not sure how to track this area yet, but my two main goals are to: use my voice...not my thu'um...and be comfortable with myself

(like: giphy.gif)

 

Really trying to figure out this whole adulting thing...

Reserved: for when I figure out what the hell I'm really doing

 

External Strength

Stronglifts: I'd really like to get to the point where I can squat at least my body weight. I'm about 10-15 lbs away from that (190 failed this morning)

Internal Strength: 1) Figure out this macro stuff. Start tracking percentages and such here, either through fancy graphs and such (I saw @Grumble was getting one started, anyone want to try and make a "community macro" g-sheet?). 

2) Leave some calories on the table on gym days. Historically, I've been going all in on the food for gym days, I need to start eating to satiety, not just gorging self because I can...I think @scalyfreak's self-indulgence either moved into my head or sent a cousin over)

Figure out, make a decision, and voice that decision on this whole marriage thing.

But in all seriousness, I do need to figure that out for myself. I'll be trying to keep this thread focused on fitness/health and NOT a marriage bitching thread, I pay a therapist (x2) for that, but it is a real challenge, just tired of wasting my life.

 

I like @RedStone's voice points idea. I'll think in on that and try to figure out an appropriate reward. It's mainly being a) aware of my needs, B) accepting my needs, c) having the balls to speak my needs...that last one is a bitch tho

Share as much or as little as you want. But understand that of all the other things we do here, support is our number one goal (whether it be for ourselves or others) and we're all here to do that. Now, with that important bit being said...

 

Adulting is fucking overrated.

I had a similar issue some challenges ago, where I was trying to figure out how to actual measure and document speaking up for myself. Since I couldn't predict how often this might come up in a week, I used a rewards system for every time I actually did it. I think it was a sticker for every time I noticed myself standing up for myself, and then like a $10 $5 (apparently on reading back) treat at my favorite gift shop for every 5 stickers.

 

It was funny how well it worked, I started noticing more and more opportunities for needing to speak my mind, and shifted from retroactive to being present and aware. The stickers were literally called "voice points" LOL and a worthwhile project for me anyways. I'm really glad I did it, I hope you find something that works for you as well. 

 

Here's what it looked like for me, FWIW

They are all a bitch - that last is certainly the bitchiest. Tough work, but worth it. You seem to have found a right starting point for a useful path. Here to support you!

Lesson learned: ice is slippery. Results of lesson: everything hurts, left hand is tore up a bit, feeling a bit nauseous, but I'M AT WORK...for now

 

Recap of yesterday:

Stronglifts: 190 squat...and the whole gym knows I couldn't complete my 2nd set...literally...190 lbs dropped onto the safety bars from about 1 foot height makes a loud enough BOOM that the front desk people came up to check what the hell happened.

Had some failures on 95 lb OHP, and couldn't finish 1x5 240lb deadlift...it was a humbling morning...I did run afterwards (what the hell is wrong with me) and clocked the first mile at 8'08 (boo cardio, but YEA time)

Marco reporting: Carbs 82g, Fat 72g, Protein 73g;  Between Fitbit and MFP-it looks like I left about 1,201 cals on the table.

 

Internal strength: leaning heavily on my recovery community, therapy this afternoon...

don't worry about the lifting failures,  everyone has them.  Take it as a mark of pride that you found your limit!

 

What are you trying to hit for Macros and total cals?

I have ended up in laughing at it, it was really funny how quickly the whole lifting area just went freaking dead silent...

 

I have no idea what to try and hit for macros, I don't see how slapping them around would help.

 

Over the past five years I've used MFP, set to lose 0.5 lbs/week, for my calorie counts.

 

As of right now, MFP has me set to 2,280 calories a day. Since my fitbit and MFP are linked, it auto adjusts my remaining calories (which is why I'm trying to leave some back on the table).

 

I really know nothing of macro counting/hitting at the moment. My goal is to lose the tire around my midsection while holding onto/building more muscle mass (thinking the term is clean bulk). I have learned that the weight on a scale isn't my best measure of fitness, but I know my body fat is still pretty high (lower 20%s). 

 

I've thought about keto, but apparently eating one damn clif bar (a typical afternoon snack) has more net carbs than I'd be allowed on a keto diet (plus wife is a picky ass eater and has lots of food sensitivities, I am the chef of the house)

Since mine is still with me, it's most likely a cousin.

 

Fair warning: It took me years to realize how easy it is to mistake Self-Indulgence for Comfort (who isn't a demon, and who is kind of shy). Self-Indulgence will happily play along if you make that mistake, so be careful!

 

And kudos and all that stuff for the mental/internal part of your challenge. I salute anyone who braves the really hard boss fights.

Well...after yesterday's ice fall...lifting didn't happen.

 

Got to the gym, stretched, and started warming up for squats...empty bar...not that bad...10 lbs/side...some pain...35 lbs/side

nope.gif

 

Cancelled squats...well "I'll go ahead and do bench and barbell row..." *goes to lay down on bench* 

 

881822511976a65b5d29cf7dfa954896.gif

 

...so I walked/ran for 25-30 minutes

 

Didn't leave many cals on the table yesterday (left 183 on table per MFP)...damn karamel sutra...at least I only ate half the pint.

 

Macros from yesterday

Carbs 246 g

Fat 182 g

Protein 126 g

 

Going to start a google sheet like Grumble I think...

 

Still working on courage...

giphy.gif

 

Good therapy yesterday. Next couples session is in a few weeks. 

 

@Grumble-I did leave work early yesterday. Took 4 advil, got our washer fixed (finally after 2 weeks), took a vicodin, walked the dog, then went to bed around 1015. Woke up mentally ready for the day...

 

Just because someone pissed in my cheerios...doesn't mean I have to eat them

Weekend update:

 

Foodwise, terrible...but delicious...Not going to shame myself by posting all the delicious things. No family time was had except for me and the puppers. We did manage to kick some ass in Zelda BotW, got Medoh calmed down (so that is now Medoh and the elephant taken care of, now the salamander and the other one)...starting to feel like I'm rescuing Voltron...oh...and I got that master sword :D

 

Exercise consisted solely of walks on saturday and sunday, nothing exciting, a$$ still healing from the fall from thursday. It's amazing how much sh!t is connected to the back/ass area.

 

Stronglifts today:

Squat: laughable, thursdays spill took about 60 lbs off my squat. Still hurt with 35 lbs/side but at least I got it done. I might be able to jump up a few notches on wednesday

Bench: scared of 130, so I re-did 125. I did get all 5x5 on my own (didn't hafta get help like last bench session)

Barbell row: 125 was alright, going to stay there on friday as that body english is creeping back in (or it could be as a result of the injury)

 

Macros: ....embarrassingly bad over the weekend. Am going to start reading up on this keto stuff that a lot of folks here seem to know shit about (ahem...warriors if you know good resources I'm all eyes)

I did think of a question, I know keto refers a lot to "net carbs" (i.e. carbs-fiber content), is that only fiber found IN the food? Or could I supplement fiber? 

 

Cals left on table: Saturday-left about 860 cals on the table, Sunday-I stole about 500 cals off another persons table (damn Karamel Sutra 1/2 pint)

 

Internal work continues...internal state...giphy.gif

 

Good timing with internal work...yea v-day...fucking timing

Back on the wagon as of yesterday foodwise. 

 

Food-date from yesterday:

Calories left on table: 1,027 (~500 over my "allotment" but exercise "allowed" for some more, but I didn't eat them)

 

Macro breakdown:

Carbs  287g

Fat 110 g

Protein 176

 

Been thinking about the keto thing. I'm curious how easy people find it to maintain once a desired cut is made. I figure that going keto would end up being like other "dietary changes" (i.e. works as long as you eat that way, but then comes back when you go off plan). Anyone have any thoughts in regards to this? 

 

Also, carbs are kind of delicious...I'm realizing that I'd have to cut out a significant portion of my carb intake. I need to investigate my data set to see if I can figure out net carbs easily from myfitnesspal data...really don't want to have to pay for the 'privilege' to export my data set...

 

Right now, things are tolerable. Body is still healing, work is well....work...

 

Hoping to squat more tomorrow morning as ass area continues to heal up

Just figured out that if I go to the MFP website on a computer, I can run a report for my past years worth of log entries. 

 

I can copy and paste that shit into excel...and delimit the data cells to get rid of pesky "g" and "mg" notations and start calculating shit.... @Grumble, I'm gonna build a freaking huge as pivot table (I know you were looking at something like that in your thread I believe)...

It is official...the ice fall from last week has taken (praying temporarily) about 70 lbs off of my squat due to pain coming "out of the hole."

 

But at least I'm continuing to work. I figure/hope that the work will keep blood/juices flowing in the area to speed up recovery.

Squats-115 lbs

OHP-95 lb (5/5/5/4/4 @scalyfreak, it can be done!)

Deadlift....yea didn't happen, I figured if 115 squat hurt, 240 deadlift was a bad Idea. 

I did *cough* run afterwards....shhhhhhh

 

Meal info from yesterday:

Left on table: 427 cals

Protein 168 g

Carb 292 g

Fiber 64 g

Fat 99 g

 

In looking through my past few days...it seems ketogenic would be a pretty big shift for my diet, as I apparently eat a plethora of carbs.

 

Data update...ummmmmm....*power nerd showing through* I've been playing with pivot tables and my MFP data set...( @Grumble)...BEHOLD!!!!! What I've eaten for the past few months....I'ma hafta re-import the data to keep the dates in it, if I add dates back, I could GRAPH SHIT!!!!!

Getting life in order is a challenge worth doing.

 

Happiness is the journey, not the destination (took me forever to learn that)

Link to comment

I can hear Bahamut mock me from the gym four blocks away...

 

I missed all three workouts this stretch. Today and tomorrow are non-gym days, and I am cautiously optimistic that I'll be able to get some light lifting done on Friday. Mental health needs barbells!

Reading Challenge Thread 2022

“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.

The way I see it, being sick provides a legitimate reason to miss workouts, as opposed to missing it for laziness reasons. At the end of the day, from a progress stand point, it has been over a week since I went to the gym, and for several days during that week I didn't get my rehab exercises done, so there is some catch-up to be done when I get back, whenever that is. But that's okay. It's not like it's a project with an end date anyway.

 

Multiple scientific studies have shown that bonding with a pet is good for our physical and psychological well-being. And it's kind of ridiculous that someone needed a scientific study to figure that out. Just adopt a kitten and it will become obvious. :P
