Snake the decker wants to be a novahot urban ranger


drunkensnake

Recommended Posts

In this forest of steel and glass, concrete and stone, there is a new kind of ranger, one as skilled in the meat world as in the digital. Slipping through, strong enough to stand up to all the abuses of the physical world while diving into the Matrix, and getting back out. Snake is a runner, in the digital space his persona is unstoppable, no firewall can keep him out and no IC can hope to stop him, but his fellow runners are tired of protecting him in the meat world, carrying him through and healing him, he needs to get the stamina, the speed, and the strength to carry on, and losing a few pounds would probably help with disguises too.


 


MAIN QUEST


 


 Get under 200 pounds and following that, I'd like to actually put on some muscle and look better just in general (sure my wife would appreciate this)


 


SUPPORTING QUESTS


 


- Strength train 3x a week 


               Hit the main lifts (shoulders, chest, back, legs) 3x a week, can be done with bodyweight at home, push pull and leg, i.e. b/w rows, pushups, b/w squats, pike/handstand pushups (STR-5)


- Conditioning 2x a week alternate with strength training but aim for 3 if I hit 3 more often than not...I can reward myself with a new game, such as stick of truth,  I have a terrible attention span and get bored running or biking, so conditioning could encompass 1 minute jog and then 15 burpees (repeat till I can't) or a cycling HIIT session (only takes 15 minutes) or a circuit of bodyweight movements  (END-3 DEX-2 [since it will improve sprint ability])


-No Wheat! (I'm not actively opposed to it, but most wheat foods tend to have a low nutritional value aside from calories and fiber I've noticed, so not good for losing weight) (CON - 3)


 


LIFE QUEST


 


Get my website started! I have the framework I want sketched out, I just need to finish coding it up and deploy it. Get the Index page and one of the 2 blogs started (it's a fairly large website, one blog is for little research projects I do like how humanity would fair against real vampires, and the other is just for general nerdy observations like what I learned about life from comic books) and start on my dev diary about the game I'm making when normal people should sleep (I never get what I would actually called tired, I just stay up until I'm like "Meh I guess I'll go lay down, I could probably sleep if I tried" bugs the shit outta my wife)  I'm paying for hosting I should use it (CHA - 2)


 


MOTIVATION


 


Much like Louis C.K., I look at my body and think "yuck" I'm sure my wife feels the same and I would like to fix that, plus...I jiggle when I brush my teeth...it isn't attractive. We are throwing a pool party for my daughter's birthday this year, I want to make the other mom's jealous of my wife...vanity!


 


BACKGROUND


 


I'm 5'10" and i weigh around 210ish, it's actually down from 220  plus I'm a horrible physical specimen. If anyone else watches Revolution (great show) you know about Aaron, who is the worst guy to be in an apocalypse, out of shape, his skills are all now useless, and he can't fight (I mean, I know BJJ...but yea)...I don't want to be Aaron..I need to at least be in good enough shape to help defend the township (Able township hee hee...too bad I can't stand running anymore)

Hey there! 

 

SOunds like you are on your way! Looking forward to seeing your success. 

 

You know, I have to say, though. Huge plot hole in Revolution. If they had relaly been living on the lamb that long and doing that much walking and not eating lavishly, that guy would have TOTALLY thinned out on his own. JUST saying ;)   

 

Now don't go starting a Revolution to make your challenge easier...

I feel like I have some similar goals (Under 200 lbs, Cut out Wheat, etc) and I totally agree with your motivation:

 

A couple months ago a friend's wife got in a fight at SantaCon (It's a drinking fest in SF, so not surprising). I half jokingly said that my goal is to get so ripped and confident that my wife gets in a fight over me by the end of the year. I don't really want it to happen, but if I end up turning heads like that, well...I won't argue...

I know right? i was even thinking about before that, in a sans technology agrarian society how did he stay chubby? The implications boggle the mind!

I watched a show about people with extreme eating habits, and one guy ate raw meat....a lot, and didn't care about the health implications (salmonella, parasites etc.) but as soon as they mentioned it could help him get a flatter stomach he was all "I'm in!" never underestimate the power of vanity

I don't mind burpees, but I really, really, reallycannot stand running....worst....thing....evar!

Challenge officially starts today! so I had a cheat day yesterday...makes sense right? tonight will be strength training and I'm hoping to actually get my ass to the weight room instead of doing a bodyweight routine...we will see what happens though....what will be will be for All is Dust

All-is-Dust.jpg

on the nutrition front I just had some fried eggs and hot sauce for breakfast, I am having a baked potato for lunch with fajita meat, salsa and cheese (I never said no dairy :-p, just no wheat) this will officially be starch meal for the day, good thing I had the forethought to put on a roast with carrots and mushrooms before I left the house! I had an abnormally productive morning in fact lol

Nice challenge!  That website and game sound like quite the projects.  I don't know how you get all that done with work and gym without tiring.  I'm getting exhausted just thinking of all the work you do. 

 

Good luck!

day one in the bag, got in my strength training, b/w since my wife wanted to work out with me, and she is still to self conscious to go to the gym, 3 circuits of squats, pushups, b/w rows and pike pushups, 8 reps each, 1 minute rest between circuits, conditioning today.....I'm going to shoot for 50 burpees, and then maybe another 50 depending how I feel, and how the weather looks, I might do a leg b/w circuit instead depending on weather, we shall see

 

On the nutrition front, I ate a very small bowl of ice cream last night with my daughter, we had to get rid of it after all (total 1/3 cup...I actually measured) and otherwise ate very well yesterday, with no wheat so that is filed as a win, 

1125755-Clipart-Of-A-3d-Pencil-Checking-

breakfast today was bacon and eggs .....mmmmmm the ultimate b&e, the hot sauce is what really elevates them, and I will have left over roast from last night for my lunch today, btw if anyone else is curious, integrating with Amazon is a giant cluster of fuck, just so y'all know...lol

I'm hoping I don't get ridiculously hungry today, when I do it is usually around the 4th day of a challenge, since I slack a bit in between, when I crank back down my body feels like the Master's, just wasting away

which reminds me of this I saw, apparently other people heard the heart beat to the beat of the drum bum bump bump  bump and thought of it as well
