RoachRex Starts from Scratch


RoachRex

Recommended Posts

So uh, man... lots of stuff happened last time and kind of threw me off.  Basically it all comes back to a Sinus cyst I had to get surgically removed. Lots of limits, I couldn't even blow my nose for almost 2 weeks.  Couldn't lift more than 15 lbs, no straining allowed, no breathing through nose, it was... a lot. I started back at work but I noticed that 2 weeks of being able to do p much nothin has not had a great effect on my str and sta stats.  I feel like I got hit with an ability drain effect. 

 

So here we go in an effort to get back into shape! I'll be p much using the same rubric as last round. 

 

Starting Stats
Age: 30

Height:5'4"
Weight:222#

 

 
 
The Goals: 
 
Log Foods Daily!
I don't really know how many calories I should be eating anymore, but I definitely need to get back in the habit of keeping track! I'm on MyFitnessPal, my username is RoachRex!

          7 days- A

          6 days - B

          5 days - C

          4 days - D

          3 or less - F

 
Meal Prep!
My goal is every week, to prep my meals for the entire week. I'm honestly A-ok with eating the same thing every day, I even was into Soylent for a while (but it messed with my gut too much). Honestly, the reason I eat junk is out of convenience.  So if I can batch-cook and make all my meals in advance? Ain't nothing more convenient than that! 
          5 weeks - A
          4 weeks - B
          3 weeks - C
          1-2 weeks - D
          0 weeks - F
 
Exercise 3xwk!!
My plan is to do bodyweight training 3x a week. I'll incorporate things into my off days when I can but I'm not gonna stress too hard about it. 3x a week is more important.

          pass or fail

 
Save up! 
I am planning to move in just a couple months and i need to save up for moving costs. Luckily I have a place to go already my main barrier is saving up. (I also need to find a job before I move but that's in process.) I certainly expect the meal prepping to come in handy here though!
          $1000 - A
          $800 - B
          $600 - C 
          $400 - D
          $0 - F

I haven't exactly worked out what my workouts will look like , but I'll be doing the lower level exercises from Convict Conditioning: 

Wall pushups,  Jackknife squats, Vertical pulls , Knee Tucks, and short Bridges.

Probably splitting it to do Wall Pushups and squats one day and then the rest on another day and just alternate through each week

Yeah but I'm sure happy it's out! It's been in there for over 15 years and all this time I thought breathing through my nose wasn't hampered it was just like that for everyone.  Little did I know! It's been the biggest change, just no resistance when breathing through my nose (It's soooo nice!!) 

But I've been cleared with 0 restrictions so it's time to get back at it! I've got a whole slew of off-day activities to choose from too so I don't have any excuses! Bro and I got some archery stuff we can set up in the back yard,  I got a skateboard a while back that I'm still learning on, Hiking if it's a nice day, Ring Fit adventure if outside is no good, etc.

Oh , wow, 15 years. It's going to be interesting to see how much your life improves now that you can breathe!

Yeah! For one thing I'm expecting less sinus infections (Ideally 0 >> ),  supposedly they said it should cut down on the number of times I get sick overall since my immune system won't constantly be in a state of high-alert.

I did less exercise than I intended yesterday but luckily work had me get some decent walking in!  I end up doing exercises at work lately, but there's not really any decent door jambs for vertical pulls so it threw me off yesterday.

I was to busy actually working today x x  it is hard to use the legs for lifting when pulling boxes out of shelves holy smokes. My back hurts but hopefully that's just from all the up and down and not that I injured anything...
