The Most Loathed Posted December 26, 2022 Report Share Posted December 26, 2022 Welcome to my first NF challenge in years. So much has changed. So much hasn't changed. To learn more, check out the battle log that will link challenges together over time. If you want to learn more history, go backwards into my battlelog. There are myriad challenges I would like to set myself but I'm forcing a max 2 3 to stay focused: Challenge The First Submission I recently took double gold in a BJJ tournament. My professor has not let me forget, though, that they were all on points. So, my goal is the pretend kill people. Yeah, that's right, that's what we play at. For BJJ Nerds, I'm studying the New Wave 4x4 system. It's already been improving my submission frequency. My goal, in rolls, is to pull 1 break or kill per 2 minutes off whites belts, 1/5 mins off of blues (my level), get some on purples, minimize how many I give up to Brown and Black. Challenge 2 Documentation This crosses many levels and is left to a lot of interpretation so here is my attempt to give it rigor: Personal: I've always overshare on NF so here I am. Want to hear something you shouldn't? ,,, I kind of miss just journalling on here so I'm returning to that. I'm a bit of a prude when it comes to logging my personal life so don't get too excited. Professional: For a long time I have attempted to treat myself as a consultant, tracking my hours and work. Lately I've gotten a little lazy about it so going to brink it back. I work for a single company and my leaders have never cared but I personally prefer it. BJJ: Arguably the hard bit. Certainly the least established bit. I want to keep some kind of an eye on what I'm doing well and poorly at. I will have to figure this out on the fly to some degree. The inital plan is to document drilling (not class time), submissions given and taken. However, I know that when I go to open mat it's hard for me to remember all the rolls. Challenge C Mobility I've always had bad mobility. I still have bad mobility. The only solution is the work that it takes. If I get 5 days a week, I'm gonna be doing great. Not a challenge Food: I'll talk about food. It's a thing that I do I won't be tracking calories or macros. Should I? Maybe but Sleep: My sleep has been bad forever. It still is. I'll talk about it but it's not a goal. Guitar: I've been practicing for several years and have never been happy with it. In the future I'd like to make some goals around it. A Day in the Life We all have very different lives and I think it helps to contextualize what one expects in their own day. You don't need to read this but it is here: Most weekdays 0530 - wake up 0530-0600 - make coffee 0600-0700 - practice guitar 0700-0730 - get dressed and make any breakfast I plan on eatine 0730-1000 - work 1000-1300 - workout / shower / lunch 1300-1800 - work 1800-1900 - dinner prep 1900-2000 - dinner and clean up 2000-2100 - relax 2100-2200 - reading and lounging in bed 2200-0530 - sleep A Week in the Life Monday - normal work day, BJJ 11-12:30 Tuesday - short day, rec time 11-12 ( cardio and kettlebells), 6:30 - 8 Marathon Roll Wednesday - sometimes normal, sometimes very short. 11-12 BJJ, 4:30 - 5:15 Guitar every couple of weeks Thursday - "quiet day" rec time 11-12, nothing else planned Friday - BJJ (no gi day) 11-12 Saturday - chores day Sunday - Open Mat at Akagi (not my home gym) 10 - 1 but I'm usually there 10:20 - 12:30 The Plan Post 5+ days a week Do my usual training but write it down Keep working through 4x4 (strangle people) Actually do mobility and keep myself accountable on it Do my guitar but try to be a bit more focused Really work on getting back to documentation my time in and out of work Feedback welcome. 6 Quote Current Challenge A bit monk-ish these days: battle log Link to comment
