Rolling forward more on 2018 goals

 

Things I mastered the past 7 weeks:

Squats at full depth again (3x10x85#)

Serious progress on back tucks and round offs

Crushing it at work

Pushups almost every day (missed a few days while on vacation)

 

Things I still want to be better at

READ MORE COMICS! Especially more from non-big 2 creators and those with strong female/minority/LGBT+ characters/creators

More consistent workout routine

More work/life balance

 

First challenge of the year I was pretty sporadic due to a lot of travel. I managed to get some workouts in, but they were a lot of random ones (yoga, aerial, hiking, gymnastics, racquetball, etc) and didn't make much progress on my lifting program. I want to put the focus back on the lifting and let the other workouts fall where they may. The nutrition bit also didn't really work out the way I had envisioned it to, but I only seem to do well with "all or nothing" goals when it comes to nutrition. I don't know what to do there quite yet, so... placeholder.

 

1) Fitness

Get through week 8 of the Bigness Project by the end of the challenge (4 lift days/week)

☐☐☐☐ Week 6

☐☐☐☐ Week 7

☐☐☐☐☐ Week 8

☐☐ Handstands 2x/week, 10 minutes min.

☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Daily 22 pushups

 

2) Read

☐ Comic a day. Total__

 

3) Movement/Mobility

☐☐☐ Stretch, foam roll, mobility routine, etc 3x/ week

 

4) Nutrition

PLACEHOLDER GOAL

 

5) Work

☐☐☐☐☐ Leave work by 6pm. (6:20 on Mondays)

I offered to babysit for a coworker yesterday and he said "well, I don't want to take away from your social life... yadda yadda" 

I looked at another coworker and said "He acts like my weekends aren't just sitting around my apartment reading comics and watching comic book movies and shows"

I need more comics in my life. I'm just tired of the big 2 and don't know where to start.

I love Saga, which is ongoing and the art and surrealism makes me real happy. I've also been reading Bitch Planet and Monstress lately. 

 

Older classic runs you may want to check out:

Nimona (!!! 100% fully heartily recommend to any and all humans)

Y: The Last Man (one of my favorite pieces of media of all time)

Sandman (OBVIOUSLY) + Lucifer, a very different spin-off comic

The Invisibles (you might kind of feel like you are on drugs, but in a good way)

Preacher (kind of edgelord-y, but the story is still good)

Hellboy (any and every trade paperback is great, honestly)

Fables

Transmetropolitan (conspiracy and corruption in journalism and politics, how very topical :P )

I'm not picky, but I'm also simple. I'm definitely going to be reading hellboy, and I was really enjoying the comics you posted in your last challenge (outsiders?), so thats a good place to start. Anything multiverse will immediately be ignored, though. It's hands down my least favorite trope in comics and the reason I stopped reading them.

I really need to get back into reading more comics! I never finished all of Sandman and I reallllllyyyy should.  I feel like I need to be so much more focused to read comics than I do for books (I like to really take in the art) so I tend to not like reading them during my regularly scheduled before-bed reading time. Hmmm...

I've been wanting to read it so bad! My sister called me after she read it and said she cried a lot and it was amazing. I love that they are coloring it too. I might buy it vs. getting from library just for that reason.

THERE IS A NEW SHE-RA COMING! The broadcast stations where I grew up didn't show He-Man, but they showed She-Ra (I've since caught up on He-Man) and She-Ra was the bomb. I loved the animation, the color scheme, the characters, everything. Seeing some old episodes on Netflix with Sra. Tanque brought back a lot of good memories.

Fr 2/23 - Su 2/25

 

Mr. J slipped on ice and broke his hand. So he's been on administrative duty working M-F days. It's been nice to see him at home during the evenings. We went out for date night Friday, which was the first time in a while.

 

This weekend I ADULTED SO HARD. Deep cleaned kitchen and both bathrooms, vacuumed, laundry, grocery shopped, baked banana bread, cooked all my meals, meal prepped breakfast for the week, sorority meeting, returned library books, dropped stuff off at the recycling center, was DD for Mr. J and the neighbors Saturday, AND did my taxes.

1) Fitness

Get through week 8 of the Bigness Project by the end of the challenge (4 lift days/week)

☑☑ Week 6

☐☐☐ Week 7

☐☐☐☐☐ Week 8

☐ Handstands 2x/week, 10 minutes min.

☑☑☑☑☑☑☑ Daily 22 pushups

Saturday was a rest day. Sunday was W7D1 where I managed ALL 6 SETS OF 10 SQUATS WITHOUT A BOX!!!!

giphy.gif

Week 8 starts phase 2, which moves from 6 sets of 8-10, to 3 sets of 12-15. I'll probably try to keep the same weight throughout the end of the program, just because it works back up to 6 sets again (ded). I was thinking of jumping into crossfit once I finished this program, but the farther I get in, the more I want to run a powerlifting/peaking cycle too. 

Only did 1 handstand session this week. 

 

2) Read

 Comic a day. Total 6

Add another 3 days to the total here. Yesterday I also boarded, bagged, and boxed a bunch of comics (alliteration FTW!). Which was a nice bit off my mind and helped clean up the place instead of having tons of piles just sitting around.

 

3) Movement/Mobility

☑☑☑ Stretch, foam roll, mobility routine, etc 3x/ week

Actually stretched and rolled 4 times, but who's counting ;) (it was necessary)

 

4) Nutrition

errrmmm

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

5) Work

☑☑☑☑ Leave work by 6pm. (6:20 on Mondays)

Managed it every day.
