RedCedar Enters the Forest Gym!

Recommended Posts

Finally, the stars have aligned. Weather, time, energy and daylight combined to allow me to actually use my forest gym!!!

 

Ran a few sets of hill sprints and even managed to eek out a very sloppy pull up! My first since high school, feeling like a major badass. I had to do a double take to make sure my hands were actually facing away from me. Beyond stoked for the next challenge, which will DEFINITELY include pull ups, and working towards a "real" one. 

 

 

 

Pushups: 3/4 2/3 1/3 2/4 1/3 0/3 | 8/20

So "forest gym" just made me think of Pokémon, which then made me picture you as a small creature zipping through the trees and taking out the obstacles in your path.

Yeah, I don't even know. Happy Friday!

Sorry/Not sorry for the delayed challenge recap. I got back from Kauai this weekend and was very reluctant to turn on my computer. 

 

 

So here's the results:

 

Pushups: 3/4 2/3 1/3 2/4 1/3 1/3 | 9/20 

B, completed enough workouts to finish three weeks of the program if I had started from week one, but my initial test had me starting at week 3. I ended up one workout away from completing week 5, so I completed week 4 of the program. Scoring was set as a B- for three weeks, and a B+ for 4 weeks, so there you go. A solid B.

 

Forest!:   1/2 3/2 0/2 3/2 0/2 1/2  | 8/12

B-. Pretty simple grading here, 9 would have been a B, 6 a C.

 

Desserts: I don't wanna talk about it

I should have looked back at my scoring rubric before I stopped counting; I wasn’t doing nearly as bad as I thought. Last count the dessert total was 20.5, both dinning hall and other desserts combined. That was the end of week 4. I’m gonna guess I had more than 3 and less than 9 desserts in that last two weeks, which would mean not a total fail! This goal gets a D.

 

Clean:     1/1 0/1 1/1 0/1 0/1 2/1 | 4/6

B+ Pretty simple grading here as well, 4 times was on my rubric as a B+. 

 

 

The main aim of this challenge was to feel good about myself and feel confident taking pictures on my Hawaiian vacation. That part of the challenge was a huge success. My girlfriend and I hiked every day and only went out to eat once (well, twice if you count the wedding reception). We made great food choices and stayed active. I even did a 100 pushups program workout one morning. I felt damn good the whole time. Sure the sunshine, beautiful beaches and general island vibe had a lot to do with it, but I got a good view of how much eating better and moving more are just a part of who I am and what I do. Not out of feelings of guilt or "I should", but because it generally makes me happy to be healthier. That kind of success can't be graded.
