WhiteGhost - Tits, Gaming & Ice Cream


Recommended Posts

EDIT:  By popular demand I am changing my challenge to be about the 3 things most important to me (and my readers) right now:

 

1. Tats - I am getting my first tattoo and it is impacting my life in a big way as it heals and I continue to get it worked on.

 

2. Gaming - I am loving the heck out of Assassin's Creed Odyssey right now and it is my new obsession.

 

3. Ice Cream - I have a couple hundred dollars worth of ice cream that is prepaid and I need to eat it soon or I will lose it.  I can't not eat it because apparently I don't even know what 'sunk cost' means :D    

 

Optional Side Quest - avoid misspelling anything that might make people think this challenge is about something  other than the above 3 things ;) 

 

Original challenge write up is below:

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

Now's my chance, RUN!

Those of you who followed my last challenge know that the biggest thing in my life right now is getting my first ever tattoo.  It is a massive thing on my left shoulder that has already had 8 hours of work into it and I still need at least double that before it will be finished.  This is going to be pretty much dominating my life for the next few weeks so I might as well plan this challenge around it.

 

(Current tattoo progress in the spoiler for anyone interested)

This is going to ultimately be plate armor covering the upper arm, shoulder, and parts of my chest and back

 

On the advice of my artist, I need to refrain from serious upper body workouts for the duration and at least a week following the completion, which means probably about a month or so.  Given that most of my workouts consist primarily of heavy upper body stuff this means I am going to have completely revamp how I get my exercise in.  I asked my artist about his suggestion for exercise for the next little while and his response was a shrug and suggestion that "maybe every day can be leg day".  And while he isn't necessarily wrong, I am going to modify this to mean things that involve legs, which I am going to break into two main categories:

 

Running:  I have been working recently on getting my cardio endurance back up by running on the treadmill off and on over the last year or so.  Now that spring is finally here, I can get out and run in the park again.  My goal last challenge was 50km and I very nearly hit it without even trying very hard.  This challenge I am going to raise the bar and aim for 100km.  I probably won't get there, but that's why they call it a challenge :) 

 

Stretching:  My last challenge had a stretching goal and I completely ignored it.  This time I have much less of an excuse so let's see if I can actually stretch consistently for an entire challenge.  Goal is 5 stretch session/week which comes out to 30 session.  I probably won't hit this either but let's just call it a "stretch goal" ;) 

 

Food: In addition to exercise, I also want to make sure I am getting my nutrition right so I am going to have to put together a menu for each week.  I am tired of eating the same things over and over so I will probably do something similar to the 5x5 challenge I did a while back.  I will aim to have a meal plan ready in the next few days

 

[Meal Plan goes here] 

 

Personal Development:  We all know that I spend pretty much all of my time not working out or cooking in front of the xbox.  This is a brag, not a complaint :) Its a great life and I plan to keep doing it, but I also want to do other things that help me to develop other skills as well.  For this one it could be anything from practicing the ukulele to reading books or even drawing.  Goal is to spend at least 15 minutes a day on something other than gaming, 5 days per week.  Will I actually do this or will it end up being my dump goal?  Stay tuned to find out.

 

The rest of my time is going to be split between Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider, Elder Scrolls, Forza and my various D&D campaigns so expect to hear a bunch of stuff about that for most of my updates.

I don't understand this 'away from game box' thing.... I am pretty sure my life support tube runs from my PC to my keyboard, and then hits mia via contact from my fingers.  LOL.

 

That tattoo is freaking awesome already.   I can't wait to see the completion of it.   But, oof, what a challenge in not getting to work out upper body during it.  I would struggle hard core with that.  Hah, CORE... maybe core exercises are the secret!

 

Good luck!  Here to see you adapt.

If you can get your hands on the hardware for it, I highly recommend going wireless with the tube, not just the keyboard. I find computer peripherals last a lot longer when I don't have to take them with me everywhere. :)

haha, I think maybe it's some kind of though experiment.  Obviously not something that could be 'real'

 

yeah, there is a lot of challenges with this, the time commitment, the pain, the recovery.  In the end I think it will all be worth it

Yesterday I woke up feeling like I really needed to go back to bed for a few hours but I resisted and ended up doing pretty much nothing instead.  I totally should have gone back to bed.  

 

In the afternoon I went to the park and did both a stretching session and a 5k run.  It has been forever since I have run outside on regular ground and I found it to be much harder than running on a treadmill but I still ended up going just as fast.  Go figure ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

When I came back I booked my next tattoo session (next Monday), spent some time on NF and then made some fried rice for dinner.  I was going to take a picture of it but by the time I thought f it the food was already gone :) 

 

In the evening I played Tomb Raider until it was time for bed.

Well I want to have mostly gray metal with folds in the pauldron and chain ringlets along the edges and I was going to have smaller symbolic things 'stamped' into the metal plating, like how I love the 4 suits in a deck of cards, among other things.  I haven't been able to find a specific picture online for what I want but I know what it looks like in my head.
