Cry Havoc '19: The Scoundrel Who Spat In Fate's Good Eye

Recommended Posts

Increasing your Momoa-osity is the perfect way to shake off the shitshow that was 2018.  (But really, every guy should try to be as Momoa-Like as possible) ;)  I'm glad you're feeling better and ready to get your mojo back!

How big ARE Momoa's arms?

 

Go go go on the goals.

 

I confess I laughed reading your leaning out comment. My goal is to not lose track of my ribs and hip bones s my feisty passenger grows. By March I may weigh as much as 160#. Oof. (Although MFH appropriately rolled his eyes when someone asked if I was going to catch him. He's 180! I started at 137. I hope I never catch him! I think I would feel awful!)

Challenge Journal:  January 2nd, 2018 errrr, I mean 2019!

They killed my girlfriend off in The 100.  Fuck.  So let's bring back #WeidaWednesday instead of dwelling on that fact with a classic video relevant to many of us starting out our journey into 2019.

 

VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED

 

 

Bro Wisdom abounds!

 

Goals are going excellent. My uniform is fitting much better. Occasionally hungry but not suffering for it. Probably will end up going dry for all of January at this point as my weight loss goals are fairly ambitious and I want to 'earn' my shirtless WODs this summer!  Oh, and I really need some new CrossFit shoes!

Shut my phone off and had my Self-Care Date for the Relax Feat of the Ranger mini-challenge last night.  It was a pleasant break from being glued to various messaging apps.  Gonna call that my Be Happy sesh for the night too.  Tonight is skating and the weather is beautiful (by regional standards).

Things I love about this thread:

The challenge itself.

The optimism.

How much it pumps ME up to do the same.

Things this thread needs more of:

Female bad ass counterpart.

Henry Cavill

 

So I help!    My go to for the most awesome badass chick that I love is, of course where I get my namesake from! Starbuck!  Thus, she appears.  (With bonus Henry Cavill because... because Henry Cavill)

And I've started rewatching Tudors because #HenryCavill (and he does CrossFit and therefore deserves more screen time in my challenge)

So I rediscovered an old fitness inspiration who is striking a particular chord with me tonight.

 

Maybe you've heard of Rob and Dana Bailey?

 

They're epic AF (and one of the comments compared him to Jason Momoa, so they're both #goals).

 

Rob and I both like heavy things (he's more meathead powerbuilding, I'm more CrossFit), fast things (he does Porche, I do Harley-Davidson), beautiful women (he has Dana... I'm a work in progress lol), heavy music (it's all I've been listening to tonight), have similar haircuts and dig fashion-forward slim-fit jeans.  What's not to love?  Anyone have a good #hashtag to make Rob our #FridayInspiration hashtag around here in the vein of #MomoaMonday and #WeidaWednesday?  They do own and operate an apparently company called Flag Nor Fail, but I'm not sold on #FlagNorFailFriday either.

 

 

 

And some tunes to kick your next workout into overdrive!

One of my favorite things from the Man Of Steel Extras is the story of Cavil bulking up to become Superman. The guy who coached him bragged about Cavil raising his deadlift. I approved.

 

If there isn't a .gif of it, did it even happen?

Apparently there is a .gif of it, and apparently 500# happened.  ;)

If ever a .gif existed about stiff legs and wrecking your spine/lower back due to poor deadlift form, this is it.

But the Game of Life is about goals and leveling up, not resolutions!

 

I hate resolutions by their very concept. Set your goal, figure out how to make that happen and then start doing the work. Resolutions are like wishes and you wait for the perfect moment to start, which apparently is Jan 1 but there is no such thing as the perfect moment to start and then they fail.

I've never watched the Tudors but I do know Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in it, and I've had a crush on him for like a decade and a half now, so

I watched this really... unique show with him in it once.  I want to say I liked it?  Or maybe it was just so weird, I remember it.   It was one of his earlier bits... called Gormengahst.

Dangit, all this Katee love, and now I want to redo my challenge!  NO!  First... cartoon weirdness, then... THEN NEXT CHALLENGE... Comes the return of the BSG themes!

Nnngggh!!

Challenge Journal:  January 3rd, 2019.

I... don't really have much to say tonight other than I'm tired and I totally went out on a date with a bikini competitor last night (Social Activity ☑, let's call that a Be Happy sesh and my Moment of Positivity too ), and that was pretty cool.

Also recently found this Russian CrossFit coach who's hair game is off the fucking charts and legit #goalsAF.

Exactly why I don't do challenge themes anymore.  There's a general flavor around here and the rest is organic progression... or regression, considering Jason Momoa has been my primary inspiration for ages!

You have no idea how tempted I am.  Seriously.  Just watch that savage 'do in action!

 

 

Only factors holding me back are the growth required (I'd need to grow out quite a bit more 'skull foot print' and a lot of length too) and whether or not work would complain.  Stupid Department of Justice.  But we have some dudes with long biker ponytails and a few man buns.  I could always start with either Vlad's earlier manbun with highlights look or with James Newbury's starter dread-undercut too...

I would say 2019: Year of Bastardly Magnificence is well on its way.  Perhaps in completing Chapter 1 of this legendary saga, I might be on the road to earning myself a new forum title, Sir @Tanktimus the Encourager Magnificent Bastard™ has a lovely ring to it.  ;)
