This is Who I Am: Tanktimus Does Not Quit


Recommended Posts

In my last challenge I realized I was kind of cruising along. Then I compared my "just cruising/phoning it in" activity to my pre NF days and realized what I am doing now is far beyond my abilities back when I was doing no workouts. I'm going to keep grinding, and then suddenly look up and realize I've made tons of progress. I don't know when that's going to happen, but I want to be ready for it. Chopping down a tree with an ax is very similar. No one single swing of the ax does much. In fact, 10 or 15 swings together may not seem to make a difference. However, at some point one more swing brings the whole tree down. I'm at the point in the middle, where each swing seems to accomplish very little. However, as I often say success is the accumulation of the consequences of good choices over time. I'm going to keep piling up those good choices.

 

Therefore:

 

I lift twice a week. I'm using the juggernaut program for Bench, Squat, Deadlifts, Overhead Press, and Lateral Pull downs. I do some body weight stuff to warm up (push ups, sit ups, working on being able to do a pull up, using a roman chair to work my back) and do Bench and squat on one day and the other three on the other day.

 

I do Yoga. 1 to 3 times a week.

 

I walk. 1 to 3 times a week.

 

I also do laundry.

 

I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. I'm still working on that second half. This is the TLDR of Intuitive Eating which has become very helpful for me.

 

These comprise the foundation on which the physical aspect of my awesome is built. From these I will not waver. In these I will grow. 

I am Tanktimus.

I am the Ranger Chaplain.

and Rangers Gonna Ranger.

Am not foolink anybody little dutchpool, intentions are beink betrayed by how close chair is to wolfpool chair.

 

Today is a good day. I woke up with some more right leg crankiness, so i did some homebrew yoga of poses I knew would help, and they seem to have. Lunch was rice (1 c long grain jasmine rice, some olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh cut mint stir fried, then add lemon juice and 1 3/4 c chicken broth, bring to boil, cover, turn to lowest setting and let sit like that for 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile cook chickent thighs in avocado oil with greek seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and red wine vinegar. Add some chopped kalamata olives and 5 oz baby spinach and let the spinach wilt. Mix in the rice when it's ready. Over that serve a cucumber tomato salad (1 big cucumber minced, 1 pint of grape tomatoes halved, half a juiced lemon, some olive oil and some honey, stir and chill).
