OH MY GOD! It's been forever and I'm excited to start getting back to business. Family showed up during the off-week and there was just garbage food after garbage food and more garbage food. My 'never eat again' list has expanded quite a bit. It was a bad experience overall. I've been detoxing so this week will still be a little rough but I am back and ready to do this! I haven't given much thought about goals/challenges since the last one ended but I'll edit this post as I think of stuff. I'll have it ironed out in a day or two.
Main Quest: To lose 100 pounds.
Goal 1: Food! Like I said, detoxing now and this is a really hard part. I really need friends and accountabilibuddys (spelling?) at the start of this. I've reduced my non-paleo meals to twice a week now. Bagels are officially on my 'never eat again' list so that means there's no point in having a cheat breakfast. It's roughly 1 point a week. There's some leeway the next few days but by the end of the week if I'm screwing up I start losing points.
Goal 2: Warhammer! My sledgehammer(Jackson) has been a dear, dear, workout buddy but it's time to retire him.... FOR A WARHAMMER. The old sledgehammer was 10 pounds and I was able to work out with it for 20 minutes without breaking much of a sweat. So easy that I was getting bored- and that's a bad sign. So I'm ordering and will hopefully get by the end of the week- a 20 pound sledgehammer. My tentative workout is as follows:
10+ Minutes of Warhammer training
30+ Reverse Crunches
30+ Incline Crunches (getting too easy, hope to increase difficulty soon)
5+ Random experiment - either 1 leg deadlifts, or trying new sledgehammer exercises, or doing some tractor-tire flips. Each time I'll try something out and see what sticks. If nothing strikes me, then I'll get into full-body weight squats.
Goal 3: Unity! I couldn't think of a better word. I would like to focus on stress relief with some sort of meditation. I'm horrible at it. In fact, I think I have really bad ADD but was never diagnosed. I also feel after a stretching mini-challenge that I really should do some sort of stretch-related goal. I know they're technically 2 things, but I'm going to try to do them both as a package deal- like a yoga-ish thing. breath deep, clear my mind, and try and get some stretching done for my legs, knees, and back. Once a week, but I'll gun for twice a week.
Goal 4: Hardware/Guitar! The desk and end table was a great success. I either want to improve the desk (sawing, sanding, priming, painting, fitting a side board to the desk and then having pins in the legs to hold actual shelves- which can then be used to hold my game consoles and other knick-knacks.) -OR- Guitar. I've put it off a lot because I'm really insecure. my g/f thinks that I'm dexterous enough that I should be able to do pretty well if I just stick with it. idk.
With that all done; hello and welcome back!
