LIFT ALL THE THINGS


The Gothlete

Recommended Posts

This is my second challenge. The first went pretty well and I want to continue my successes and level up. 

 

NUMBERS

Current NF Level: 23

Back Squat PR: 205lbs

RDL PR: 235lbs

Bench Press PR: 100lbs

 

I cut my teeth on classical mythology, Xena, and Star Trek. I gravitate more toward film/TV nerdery, and have a soft spot for David Mack’s Kabuki comic series. I also started LARPing a year ago. (I’ll be at Armistice Arcane II in January, in case anyone else is as well!)

 

Fitness-wise, I’ve been around the block. Fencing, weight lifting, Muay Thai, MMA, pole dancing, aerial, Crossfit, etc. I love them all, but alas consistency is my lifelong Boss Battle. I know that positive peer pressure works well for me, so here I am! I’m going to focus my goals on pivot points - I know that if I get these in line, my other good habits stack into place.

 

I have clinical doctorates in Naturopathic and classical Chinese medicine (doing 2 doctorates at once was not great for exercise consistency, hah) and am a Certified Nutrition Specialist. It is important to me that I walk the walk and maintain the same good habits that I ask of my patients.

 

CHALLENGE GOALS

I. Maintain the skills from my previous goal: Wake up at 6:20 everyday, no snooze button. Go to my Warrior classes and avoid canceling anything I have scheduled: Crossfit on M,Th, F; Personal training Tu; Barbell Club on M, Tu, F. I rest on Wed and Sat, and occasionally do a fun physical activity like aerial on Sundays. 

 

II. Personal Development: Every evening, I will spend 20-30 minutes reading a book in my field as opposed to mindless scrolling the internet. 

 

III. Keto cut! I do cycle on and off of Keto. I typically do modified Paleo in the summer, moderate Keto and IF in the Fall/Winter. I generally use Keto to cut and Paleo to maintain. It's been working really well for me this year, so I'm going to continue.

Your name was sufficient indication that you are a badass. Xena and Star Trek confirmed it. :P

Book Riot Challenge 2021

“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.

Your dieting schedule boggles my mind. I barely remember to eat on schedule let alone cycle through actual plans.

It kinda happens with the seasons. When I start craving fruit in the summer, I switch to Paleo. When I start craving Ghee in the Fall, I switch to Keto/IF. I also love the IF eating window because I can basically eat a giant breakfast and skip dinner, which gives me one less thing to worry about.
