Rav can't think of a clever title


Recommended Posts

This is my first Ranger challenge and my second challenge overall (not counting the ones I didn't finish).


My ultimate long term goals are to squat 200#, bench body weight, run a 5K without walking, and get my last credit card paid off. 


For this challenge, I'm focusing on:



- CrossFit Mon, Wed & Fri

- Run/walk 3 miles Sat

- Eat 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day



- Stick to my budget

- No ordering pizza delivery

- work on a project every day (edited to add this one.I have way too many unfinished projects haunting me & I always feel better when I make stuff).

Those are some good ultimate goals, I remember when I hit 200 on my squat and felt like a tiny god :)


For the lifting goals you may want to work in some additional accessories post cross fit once you get the classes down.  Floor press for bench and leg press/speed squats/pause squats helped improve my numbers really well.


Good luck!

So far...

Sunday - I didn't get my 5 servings (or any actually, but beer is made with hops sooooo maybe?)but all else was good.


Today - mostly a success. Crossfit this morning (90# hang clean!), and I met my "life"goals. Only 4 servings, but I'm not hungry for dinner & that was going to be my 5th.

Nice work! Especially with not eating only to fit in that 5th serving. It was definitely smarter not to eat if you weren't hungry.

Alors je ne lui parlais ni de serpents boas, ni de forêts vierges, ni d'étoiles. Je me mettais à sa portée. Je lui parlais de bridge, de golf, de politique et de cravates. Et la grande personne était bien contente de connaître un homme aussi raisonnable.
