Back in my motherland. Starting new job June 9. Been camping EVERY weekend I've been back. Welcome to what I call Saturday.

Main Quest: Begin new life

 

Fitness Goals:

 

1. PLP - Pull ups - Lunges - Push ups.  Only I can't do that many pull ups so I do inverted body weight rows in my dog's crate. 

 

2. 5 min handstand challenge. Fell off the bandwagon here during my crosscountry move/road trip. Was rather enjoying it would like to start again. 

 

3. ????? Not sure I'm willing to assign a 3rd goal right now. Part of me wants to say new gym, but that'll come on it's own probably. I've also been toying with 5 min plank goal. I might throw that in. We'll see how my first week at work goes. It's going to feel great when I settle down enough to lift. I'm really really looking forward to that. I have no idea when I'll get there, but goddamnit I miss that barbell. 

 

 

Life Goals:

 

Remember how to play. What was free time used for before I used it all plotting my eventual return to the Best Coast?

 

Also I'm now a "traveling salesman" for industrial water treatment. When I quit my job my company scrambled and created a position for me out here in WA. Course, when I found out about it I was in Northern Wyoming with no reception and told them "I'll call you back when I'm in Washington already" (eff you I quitted!!). Turns out they had created my dream job. Feeling much like Cinderella. Only the Cinderella who made it happen not the one who waited idly around for some jackass prince. 

 

Very excited to start tomorrow. Turns out, I'm not cut out to be domestic, I haven't escaped ennui. yikes!!

Well, I hate to break it to you, but I don't think it's likely that your dog is a princess.

I also did a PLP (modified) last challenge.  I was able to do REAL Pull-ups about half way through!  Good luck to you, and here's to hoping your dog doesn't get smart enough to lock you in the crate!

Way cool about the job!  And I thought that was a seal or giant otter or snake at first.

The monster defies expectations. 

 

Your Saturday looks amazing!

 

I'll have to keep up on this one, I want to see how the PLP goes. :)

I've done a PLP before. It's good to have a visual check list where you can tick off days in a row you complete it. Also, it's more conducive when you have a fixed schedule

SHE thinks she is a princess. Man, when she thinks her life is hard (eveyday) she has NO qualms about telling you how hard it is for her.

BOOM!! Real pushups!  It hurts my dog's feelings when I use her crate. She mopes next to me when I'm blocking it. 

 

Love the creativity of using the dog's crate!

ohai there

Sup?

 

This challenge is starting out a little rough. I think it's entirely do to no set schedule for me yet and my masochistic commute. I'm training (for like the rest of the summer) at a paper mill that is 2:15h away in the morning and a solid 3h in the evening. However, I think I'll be more settled next week and should have more control over my schedule. 

 

I read 3/4 of Ghost Spin before I started work and am now listening to the Final Empire on audio book. Both fantastic stories that deserve more time and brain power than I'm giving them.

Yikes, no update in how long?!  Actually this challenge is going really well. What's been difficult is finding time to do ANYTHING at all on the internets. I'm still settling into my work schedule and life has gotten much more relaxed. I don't have time for the internets at work anymore and I spend my "free" time commuting. Sorry for the abandonment, but when I get home I just want to exercise, eat, read books, have a beer and hang. 

 

Well, actually I'm a little bored with these goals, I've done this before. 

 

Also, 4th of July backpacking at Ross Lake was fantastic! Winning!!

I can probably find a place or two to take you, that you might enjoy. ;-)  Also, this place I'm living has a great kitchen for dancing! Just sayin'!!

 

Also, I've been missing our no sweets pact from last summer. You make things easier.

Agreed, that looks gorgeous. Glad to hear that although you're busy the challenge is going well. One more week! (And then all the others too...)
