Hot dog, hot damn, I've got a LOT going on this challenge, socially and travel-wise. I'll only be home the final weekend (Sept. 8-9) as it stands right now and that's not even a guarantee because my BFF's birthday is around then and she might want to do something. We've got 1 weekend of gymnastics camp, 1 river float weekend, and 2 weddings. It's gonna be GREAT, but that means my goals can't really be ALL that ambitious. Let's have some fun. 

 

Bench it

  • Bench accessories or shoulder work every lifting workout

Offseason fun

  • Do fun or dumb exercise challenges 1x per week (can be a flow, a hard balance, some weird skill I saw on instagram, etc.)

Saving green and eating green

  • Only 2 allowances for eating out Monday - Thursday over the course of the challenge

Keep the PROGRESS in work in progress

  • Work on Guide to Daydrinking 2-3x
  • Work on Underdark Campaign 2-3x
  • Rejigger my monthly budget categories
  • At least 1 driving practice (can be a weekday!)

Are you going to be publishing this Guide to DayDrinking? I'm curious, for a friend.

I mean, "publish" as a loose term, not actual publish. It will be made available!

Following. How is the guide going?

It's a bit slow. I've got a pretty solid outline, but we all know what happens to nice outlines once you actually start writing. :rolleyes: 

 

I need to get in a good couple of sessions on the porch with beverages in hand and start cranking it out. My upcoming weekends have plenty of day-drinking and I'm planning on bringing my laptop to at least a couple of them, so if I can avoid the temptation of socialization for EVEN ONE HOUR, I bet I could get a lot done.!

Raptron / Rank: Booze Bundter -- Is that a new title? I hadn't noticed before :D 

Hahah, it is definitely old! Unfortunately, the GLs have lost the ability to change rank names for folks, but this is a legacy holdover from a party some years back.

 

Let's seee.... ZERO WEEK UPDATES!

7589d967f125f72adace5349eba8ec8e.gif

 

Monday: I lifted. I did my bench + squat workout, but skipped accessories (because that wasn't a goal yet!) and met up with a friend for some drinks at our fave bar. We also went on a quest for soft serve at 11:30 PM... but wound up with regular hard ice cream. Alas.

 

Tuesday: I took a rest day because my body was super tired from the last... 7 days of activity. This was a good choice. I caught up on Sharp Objects and manically texted my friend while I watched (I have some THEORIES and haven't read the book), watched Grey Gardens (the HBO movie, not the doc, which I have seen quite a few times), and relaxxxxxed.

 

Remaining plan

W: Deadlift, ohp, and front squat + wrapping up my friend's D&D game and some character creation stuff for MY GAME :D

Th: Squat and bench + pack

F: Off to Nashville + drive to gymnastics camp + evening workout

S: Two-a-day workout with lake time and/or outdoor ninja playtime in the middle

S: hangover stretching + flight home

Day 0.3

CostlyIdioticHummingbird-size_restricted

 

e10d0771552c2d8d72ef6be7ba5a3ccf.png

It was humidddd, but not as hot. This was a pretty easy workout, which it is kind of supposed to be. Went home, made chicken sausages with spinach orzo for dinner, and then played D&D to wrap up my friend's mini-campaign for the moment. My buddy I am co-DMing with for our Underdark campaign is a rugby coach and player and their season is about to start up (plus he has 2 small children and a full time job) sooooooo I have a strong suspicion that I may be running the campaign mostly on my own, which is fine by me, but means a bit more work. We'll probably get started in the next few weeks. :D 

 

Tonight, I'm squatting big and continuing to try to remember how to bench. Plus packing for tomorrow's trip down to Tennnnnnessee.

I have become a soft serve maniac here in Florida.

I loveee the stuff, but there are not many options in my immediate area -- most are by the beaches. 

 

Day 0.4

5820fb4827deb4546d865a7074a2cf83.png

Yeaaaaasssss, 250# squats for 5. Super happy with that because 250# was my 1 rep max early last summer. :D Bench... was dumb. But it felt ok. I probably could have gone a bit heavier, but it all felt difficult. I actually did reverse lunges instead of ham raises, but forgot to edit the spreadsheet to reflect that.

 

Day 0.5 - 0.7

Gymnastics camp weekend! I didn't really have a ton of skill goals going into it -- I just wanted to have a good time. I worked on some front twisting skills into the pit from floor/tumbltrak/balance beam. I also did some bars dismounts into the pit, cast handstand drills, freehip to handstand drills, front handsprings and walkovers on beam, flipped some fake tsuks off a wedge mat into the pit, etc. I didn't really learn anything new or work too hard on things I am trying to learn, but just kind of got in there and did a bit of working out and a LOT of socializing. :P I felt kind of overwhelmed and didn't work on a couple of the things I had planned to work on going into the weekend -- I get self conscious about trying to work on skills I don't know how to do around really excellent gymnasts sometimes. I'm still totally content with what I did manage to work on.

 

We also went to two pools, the lake, did some stand up paddleboarding, hiked to a waterfall, had a bonfire, had a huge dance party, played flipcup, played spikeball, etc. I did not sleep very much. 

 

Got home late last night and am slowly readjusting back to a normal pace of life.

I'm literally just sharing this cause of how jacked I look. :D

 

Anyway, we're officially off into week 1!

Day 1.1

b4dbad_403d23317e364c8d94d2988327adebba.

I felt too tired/beat up from the weekend to try to pull a heavy set of deadlifts, so I swapped the planned workout with the lighter deadlift day from later in the week instead.

ca8735e3f11a4d39660cfa21f0345c2d.png

+3 x 12 push-ups for my bench accessory. Other notes: I did one set at 255# before doing the other 4 sets at 245# for deads. Our regular hyper is gone, so I've swapped to doing them on our 45 degree and am doing them rounded back for all the glute action. 

 

Bench accessories: 1/12

M-Th meals out: 0 

WIP Projects: 0/3 GtDD, 0/3 Underdark, 0/1 Budget, 0/1 driving practice

Day 1.3

5lwQPMk.gif

I took a sick day. I was super exhausted and generally mentally not there for work, so I slept in, napped, did a bit of working from home, but mostly did nothing productive all day. I think that was okay though. I didn't wind up eating out on Tuesday night like I had planned, so instead, I ordered pizza on Wednesday. 

 

Bench accessories: 2/12

Lifting tonight, another work gym workout tomorrow afternoon, and then out for the weekend. Maybe I'll try to yoga balance on a river float for the gram/fun.
