Wirilome - The War of the Body Snatchers – Part 3


Wirilome

Recommended Posts

With the changes happening, I cannot pinpoint what is my main quest. I have never been one to work on just one life goal. For example, I am currently working on two (FBI and PHD) and doing the preliminary research of a third (Teaching Aboard). So I foresee this challenge being a bit harder than others as I've enjoyed working on both and now three. However, because this is a fitness forum, I will stick to a fitness adventure quest for this challenge.

Main Quest - By the end of the year I would like to be able to pass two out of the four FBI fitness requirements.

Goal #1 – Strength Configuration Part 2 (45 Push Ups, Non-Stop)!
How and Why: Continue with my pushups. In my last challenge I was able to finally do 60 push ups from the tabletop. In this challenge I will be going down a bit more. This time my pushups will be from a height that is around my mid-thigh. My grade will be based on how I do the Monday morning that I am supposed to report in:

Week 1 – 1 min, 30 seconds rest for 3 reps
Week 2 – 1 min, 20 seconds rest for 3 reps
Week 3 – 1 min, 10 seconds rest for 3 reps
Week 4 – 2 mins, 30 seconds rest for 3 reps
Week 5 – 2 mins, 20 seconds rest for 3 reps
Week 6 – 2 mins, 10 seconds rest for 3 reps

Grade:
A = 45
B = 40
C = 36
D = 31
F = 27

Stats: +1 Sta, +2 Str


 
Goal #2 – Stamina Configuration Part 2 (45 Sit Ups, Non Stop!).
How and Why: Again another FBI fitness test is based off of the sit-ups but in one minute (I need 57). In my last challenge I was able to finally do 31 sit ups. In this challenge I will be going faster and often. The only way to keep going is to do them as often as possible which is where I get in trouble.  

Week 1: 3 reps twice a week
Week 2: 3 reps twice a week
Week 3: 3 reps three a week
Week 4: 3 reps three a week
Week 5: 3 reps four a week
Week 6: 3 reps four a week

Grade:
A = 45
B = 40
C = 36
D = 31
F = 27

Stats: +1 Str, +2 Sta

 

Goal #3 - Defeat round two boss, Coke Cola!
How and Why: So I was able to start drinking 6 cups of water BUT the caffeine still has a hold of me. In the last challenge I was able to remove myself off Starbucks. I went 31 days without Starbucks. I have the following cheats (as in going drinking coke):

Cheats:
Week 1: 3
Week 2: 2
Week 3: 2
Week 4: 1
Week 5: 1
Week 6: 0
 
Grades:
A = 33 Days
B = 30 Days
C = 27 Days
D = 24 Days
F = Below 21

Stats: +1 Sta, +2 Con

Life goal is pretty big, still I have faith.

 

What are you heading into the FBI for?

What are you heading into the FBI for?

 

Special Agent. I am hoping my Russian has improved by then. I'm interested in stolen artwork and artifacts. I currently work in a museum so I have the background knowledge on how to look for an item's provenance. But investigating whether its a fraud or not is something that interests me. 

 

And yes my life goal is pretty ambitious.

 

 

wow FBI. thats impressive. good luck

 

Thanks!

Day 1.3

 

#1 - No.

#2 - No. I should note that I am working out. I dance twice a week so on the days that I dance I don't do push ups or situps as my body already hurt. 

#3 - Yes. My first cheat.

#4 - Yes.

Day 1.5

 

#1 - Yes. I was only able to to 18 pushups from this height which isn't a bad start. It's still an F for the FBI though. But good I have a base now.

#2 - Yes. 37 which is a B/C. Awesome. The first 30 I did in 30 seconds. Guess I had a Mario Super Star :star: 

#3 - No. Which is good.

#4 - Yes. I also found my transcripts for me to scan. I am looking for my writing sample. And my former supervisor is being a flake. But I will hunt him down.

Your FBI goal is amazing--I'm picturing comic book style capers where you take down international rings of art thieves (and I refuse to let facts, logic, or "reality" get in the way of this idea). But good luck on your push-ups and sit-ups.

Thank you! Your idea of the FBI sounds much more interesting.

Soda is a hard one to do, took me forever to quit it completely. Keep at it though and you'll get there!

 

Yes it really is hard as I unconsciously order it whenever someone asks what I would like to drink.

 

 

Sparkling water was what finally enabled me to quit soda. And don't stress about your push-ups: what kind of a challenge would it be if you could meet it in the first week? Overall, you're doing fantastic!

 

Thanks!

Yes I'm having a hard time. On days I don't drink soda I am drinking coffee which isn't ideal. I want to quit both. BUT on the plus, my coworker that I go on coffee runs just quit and her last day is tomorrow. I don't go by myself so that will be a HUGE benefit to me.
