Recommended Posts

One of my biggest fears is becoming one of those fat old guys who works in an office and is super unhealthy.  I am already part of that statement, I work in an office.  Luckily my company promotes healthy activity (if only for pr reasons), and has a gym and a basketball court.

 

My goals will be focused on developing healthy habits that keep me from becoming the fat old guy, as well as helping me become successful within my office environment.  I am in finance, which has a reputation of being a spreadsheet jockey.  This is definitely true for me, I do most of my work in Excel and I track all my workouts there too.

 

i did the last 6 week challenge and then went on vacation.  I just got back and I am super jet lagged, and I will be doing this challenge as a 5 week challenge (Sep 29-Nov 2)

 

Goal #1

Get back to eating paleo

Grades:

A=100%

B=1 meal/snack non paleo

C=2 meals/snacks non paleo

F=3+ meals/snacks non paleo

 

Goal #2

Complete and track the following exercises 1x per week: Barbell Incline Press, Weighted Pull-Ups, Squats, Deadlifts, Weighted Decline Sit-Ups.

A=100%

C=4/5

F= less than 4

 

Goal #3

I have always done a ton of cardio, but I'm scaling back now.  My goal is to do exactly 1 day of cardio each week.  Basketball, running, hockey, whatever, 1 day.

A=1 day

B=2 days

C=0 days

F=3 or more days

 

Life Side Quest

Based on a series of circumstances, I am going to look at other jobs.  The end goal is to have a newly completed and reviewed resume ready by November 2.  I am going to accomplish this through the weekly goals below.

Week 1: List out all of the work I have done for the past 7 years, sort by what I enjoy doing and what I do not enjoy

Week 2: Find 3 jobs online that look interesting based on the list of what I enjoy doing

Week 3: Create 3 resumes specific to the jobs I found

Week 4: Ask 3 friends to review my resume and provide feedback (already know who I will ask)

Week 5: Edit my resume based on feedback

 

I'm excited to get going!

why are you trying to swing cats? is it a new dance move i've missed?! i need to know in case it comes up at the epic kitchen dance party!!!

I should have finished but I started at 11, and being the old man that I am, I fell asleep at the kitchen table.  Hopefully I'll finish tonight.

 

 

Hilarious Simpsons clip! I am wanting to embrace spreadsheets because it is such a powerful tool for tracking data. 

 

Sounds like you are back in the groove! :smile-new:

Goal #2

I just have squats left, if I'm not sore from bball I'll do them tomorrow.


 


Goal #3


I have always done a ton of cardio, but I'm scaling back now.  My goal is to do exactly 1 day of cardio each week.  Basketball, running, hockey, whatever, 1 day.


I was (easily) convinced to play basketball today at lunch.  So no bball tomorrow if I want my A for the week.  On a related note, it felt great to run around and I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow.

I ate too much almond butter this week- thought you might understand. I am not buying more this week :pig:

 

How are you doing with the cardio regression? I am in a running group and have really scaled back. We are given a 6 day workout list and I have been in the gym instead. 

 

Good job this week!

Jefro - I had 2 small jars of almond butter this weekend, I understand man!  I need to cut back because they cost $11 per jar, ridiculous!

 

Cardio-wise I made my goal of one day last week.  It's not easy because whenever I don't feel like lifting I can always motivate myself to play basketball.  I guess that's the point of the goal!
