The Good Fight

Main Quest | Live the Good Life: Fit - Healthy - Happy

 

I have a confession to make. I'm still getting used to the idea I can "be fit" and not run. Only recently have I stopped saying 'I'm in the worst shape of my life.' I've been in love with soccer for so long that I have completely discounted any other form of exercise as irrelevant. That is starting to change. I kid you not, about every 4 weeks I rediscover that weight lifting makes me feel good, that I can nerd out over it and that I like it. Last challenge I started the 5/3/1 program which I am continuing this challenge. But I'm progressing forward from "the goal is to do it" to how to keep this fun and engaging. On days where my tummy feels good I feel incredible. On days when I feel bad I get a serious attitude problem "This is the new normal/healthy for me. I'll never feel better again" <-- time to lean in and take charge. I have absolute control over what goes in my mouth. Perhaps if I can present data to myself in a way I'm used to I'll be more proactive in my own life. 

 

Goal 1 

Pull Ups - 30 "pull up units" a week. 

All combinations of pull ups, chin ups, negatives, neutral hand positions 

 

A   -  30!

B   -   25

B-  -   20 

C   -   15 (where I'm at now)  

 

Goal 2

Clean - Put all the pieces together!

Perfect the form and add some weight. I've been working off some California Strength 3 step instructional videos. Currently I'm still at step one. 

 

A   -   I can clean! and have a reasonable idea of weights to use

B   -   I put all the pieces together!

C   -   nope

 

Goal 3

Track meals and GI issues

Meal components can be tabulated loosely. GI issues will be graphical. 

 

A   -    25 days of data (60%)

B   -    25 days of data (50%)

C   -    17 days of data (40%)

 

Life Quest | Nail that 'E'

I'm on track to receive an "exceeds expectations" for this fiscal year. This challenge will get me most of the way there (Sept 30th). Once a week I want to study/read/prepared outside of work to develop new expertise. 

 

A   -    6x  100%

B   -    4x  66%

C   -    3x  50%

No no no, I have it on good authority that this is no good. no good at all.

I certainly don't mind it 

Seth doesn't mind a lot of things.....   /leer

 

For pull ups, I was thinking that we could like add $1 to a pot every time we do a pull up or something during the challenge - then at the end, "pool" our money - so you add my total to yours and I add your total to mine - and we buy ourselves something nice/fun.

 

this might have to wait until next challenge though - I'm not sure.

You must do it, it is your destiny... And when I googled "don't argue with destiny" this came up...

I like that a lot, actually. When we are ready this is a good plan. But at the moment you'd better start liking cheap domestics cuz I won't be racking up all that much $$$....

Many things.

  1. I admit it, I giggle snorted at "I control what goes in my mouth". Yes, I am a child in a man's body.
  2. I'm learning cleans too! I'm on video 1 too!
  3. What do you mean graphical? Please don't post pictures of that...
  4. Please derail the threads, it gives me more to read on slow work days.

1. Control your evil sir. 

 

2. We be mad cleaning fools! 

 

3. It's funny because at lunch I was telling a coworker how you restate everything I say so either 1.) normal people can understand it or 2.) I am shown how it could be taken another way than I intended. I would love to see what I'm saying from other's view point but at the end of the day I only have my own.... GRAPHICAL AS IN CONTAINS A TRACE FOR FUCKS SAKE.  

 

4. Sir I do believe you are trying to derail my thread, and I just won't stand for it. I'm respectable now.

Just dropping in to say hi, you're awesome, I'm following, I'm ok with thread derailments, and all that fun stuff.

 

:)

Sup? 

 

Yay! I has a good plan.

 

And if you're doing 15 a week at this point, that's 15 more than I'm doing... :D

 

OMG. Yes, yes you did get served.

You did read the units on that right? I said 15 "pull up units" nobody here said 15 pull ups...
