Background:

Level 1

/

Level 2

/

Thor is a disappointment and needs to be eliminated. Failure at recovering his hammer has now resulted in a challenge from a mortal, set to put him in his rightful place, nonexistence. A furyan has stepped up! Not quite human, yet still a mortal, even with his increased strength, speed, and awareness, it will be the toughest of battles. The earth will quake, the skies will darken, all will flee in fear at the sight of the fuyran going blow to blow with the recently mortalized Thor.

Goals:

Fitness

Deadlift: 1RM @ 475/485
STR +3 (opt. +1 of any stat pulled from another goal)

- Easy enough. Didn't succeed at this last time, I want to this time. In a quest to hit 500lbs by the end of the year to beat Corey and BigM in our PvPvP, this one has to happen! If I succeed in getting 475 by the middle of this challenge, the number goes up to 485 and has to be done by the end of the challenge. If by mid challenge, I still fail, at 475 it stays until the end. Incentive to hit 485 will give me the option to pull a +1 attribute point from any other goal I have in this challenge.

Slow Pull-ups/Chin-ups with Leg Raise @ top: 3/4
STR +2 STA +1

- I'm on hold with my quest to hit 10 pull-ups for this challenge. Instead, I want to focus on slow motions and holds. The exact move is: start at a complete deadhang, and in a controlled slow motion, pull myself up until my chin is over the bar. Once there, hold the position until I have completed a full leg raise. At this point, I will hold my legs in that position while I slowly descend back down to a deadhang. This move will take 20+ seconds. Currently, I can do 1.5 pull-up versions and almost 3 chin-up versions. I felt the need to mix up my normal pull-up/chin-up exercises.

Mobility: 3 MWODs per week
DEX +3

- Same as last, but with a bit more success. Succeed in making the pain cave my little bitch this time.

Diet

Less Booze

- Less booze? Easy enough, right? I didn't say no booze, so this should be a breeze. Well....wrong! I like my booze....a lot! I can't just have a glass of wine for dinner, I want the bottle. I can't just stop at 2 beers for dinner, I want 4+. Drinking is a relaxing time for me.....
time to veer off course on this one. Just after typing that, I was called into a meeting, and without going into details, a certain individual has now set me off. I'm steaming and mad as hell right now. I'll come back and finish this post later, but tonight.....less booze my ass. Luckily, the challenge hasn't started yet. Bring on the mothaeffin' whiskey!!!
...... <- OK, time to continue. Back from the weekend, many much booze was had and I'm back to a nice calm and collected self. Now, as for the booze portion of this challenge, I am giving myself the option to only drink 3 times a week, with an option to combine 2 into 1. More specifically, 2 of the times are allowed only with meals, and stops at either 1 glass of wine, 1 cocktail, or 2 beers. I can choose to combine these 2 times into 1 for either dinner with friends, a happy hour, or something similar. 1 time a week, I'm giving myself a chance to let loose. It is summer time and plenty of weekend activities will involve booze, so I will allow myself 1 of these a week. There is no carrying over to the next week. This is a use or lose it thing. This may still seem like a lot for some people, but for me, this is a drastic and much needed reduction in the amount of alcohol I've been consuming recently.

Life

Pay off TV
WIS +3

- Another failed carryover from last challenge, but one that I should have a problem completing this time around. Again, it is a zero interest thing, and I've been taking my time paying it. Final payment is due in October, but there is no reason to not pay if off in advance.

I haven't had a chance to get updated pictures, so these will probably have to wait until I get back from San Diego on the 14th.

Your bolded/italicized comment in the booze section? That is me, spot-on with binge eating. So my little black, nearly-dead heart feels for you. Enjoy the whiskey. Maybe we need a "work is effin' killing me" support group. And I mean literally, with the stress and in my case, gaining weight. I'm sure we aren't alone.

Anyway, enjoy the weekend. Damn the man, save the challenge goals!

Back from the beach. Much relaxed, slightly burned, but in much better spirits than when I left on Friday. I have finished up making my goals, so see the first post. Only thing left is starting pics, but I won't have time to do that until after my trip to San Diego, so they'll be more of a "starting + 1 week" pics.

Damn the man, save the challenge goals!

I love this! Hell yeah!

I really did enjoy the weekend and boozing (although I made it a point NOT to go overboard).

Deadlift goal: awesome.

...

If he's lost his hammer and access to the apples, the Thunderer is really in trouble.

Thanks! and yep, my push to succeed this time around is def going to put him in trouble!

You've got this one!

Gonna crush it! :)

i'm in awe of your deadlift.

go get 'em.

Thanks! Need to step it up a bit to take on Corey and BigM. Although our little PvPvP is a goal for the end of the year, got to start now to reach the 500lb mark!

You're hilarious. I love this challenge!

I hate it when work makes you mad like that...I'm all about bringing on the whiskey!!

HAH! Thanks!

It has been awhile since work has made me this mad, but this particular individual does it constantly, on purpose, with an agenda. He is def a problem, but most of the time I can ignore it, but the attack on Friday, I was not.

Whoa, you're on a whole other level then I am with the weights... and the no alcohol. I actually have a weekly appointment with a co-worker to drink and complain about work.

Thanks! Well, again....not "no alcohol", but less alcohol :) No way am I gonna cut it completely!

MONSTA. Toombs look out.

I'm fairly sure the Alpha Furyan doesn't even need to warmup for a 500lb deadlift.

Toombs doesn't stand a chance! And hell no, the alpha doesn't need a warm up!

Did I see news of a second riddick movie?

Sent from my DROID4 using Tapatalk 2

Yes you did, but not sure when it'll be out. I've seen a date of 2013, but doubt it'll happen by next year. Of course, remember, Chronicles of Riddick was technically the second....Pitch Black was the first :)

-placeholder for obligatory hammer shot when I get home-

Really looking forward to the PvPvP

The PvPvP will be a lot of fun! Let's see the hammer!!!

So I came here to keep track of your DL numbers. You are WAY ahead of us already, didn't realize that. Despite this fact, I will do all I can to win the steaks. I need to half the current gap between us at a minimum if I stand a chance of beating you though.

Well, this cross country trip may set me back a bit. Last time at the gym was over a week ago and next time won't be until next Wednesday. I'm also at a point where I may need to bump it back a bit before progressing more, so we'll have to see.

Trippin' across the United States of A!

No goal oriented updates yet, but making progress across this country.

Started off bright and early at 4am on Wed.

Day 1 - DC to Huntsville, AL. Played with my nieces, visited with sister and her husband. Nice and relaxing after an 11 hour drive.

Day 2 - Huntsville to D'Lo, MS (45 mins south of Jackson). Visited with parents and grandparents, had a home cooked meal :) and got to spend time with some old friends.

Day 3 - Heading to Houston as I type this. Hear that Wicked Pixie? Happy Hour at Lupe's at 4:30! :)

Oh, I see how it is, could have swung by and said "hey" but nooooo. Ha, good to see you're having a good time though. I actually round tripped to hattiesburg yesterday, so we could have passed each other on the road.

The path to Swolehalla is paved with a lot of Swolehate, and you won't get there without being Swole of Spirit too.

He skipped over me, too. I was going to come in here and be all mad at him but then he posted a picture with cute kitty cuddles and I got distracted.
