Snake plays the Cool Game for Attractive people!


Recommended Posts

Snake needs to play the cool game of working out and being interesting to be one of those attractive people that can effectively hide their social anxiety instead of just interacting through the computer and never seeing the sun (IT BURNS!!!) He also wants to serve as inspiration for his larvae who just turned 8 and is already saying things like "I need to go on a diet" so he needs to get that over with right quick! He also needs to get all of his amazing ideas out of his head and into the world where others can see them (and judge them...that's scary, maybe I'll keep em in my head). To this End he will be doing the HOMESTAR RUNNER CHALLENGE!


 


MAIN QUEST


1184287-strongbadlarge1.jpg


Primary purpose here? to borrow from another game, currently I want to set the Normandy SSV pull up record, currently held by Commander Shepard (cheater, he/she [however your Shep is] is a cyborg after all) at 183, I also want to be one of those attractive people I keep hearing about, I understand I should get in shape for that? lol but I also want to be ready for it all, the apocalypse is coming you know, zombies or economic collapse, I don't want to end up like Aaron on Revolution(but also, in an agrarian society without modern conveyance and then walking clear across the country....how did Aaron stay fat?) I want to be Joel on Last of Us (minus the existential crisis time spent as a terrible murderous human being and the implied period of cannibalism)


 


SUPPORTING QUESTS


 


Be Strong, Like Strong Bad!


 


180px-Belinda.png


Getting as strong as Strong Bad requires lifting heavy things!


Strength train 3x a week I have been using free weights for a couple months now, I need to get heavier plates for the office gym, or join a regular gym, the focus is:


                *  5 lifts comprising all the functional movements (can someone confirm?) : Squat, Bench Press, Overhead Press, Pull Ups, Deadlift


                *  On days with no weight access body weight routine! squats, push ups, pull ups/rows, lunges, something for shoulders (pikes maybe? handstand practice?)


Scoring:  1 point per session, over a 6 week session this should add up to 18 points, based on a percentage of that (STR-3)


 


Run like Homestar!


homestar_runner.jpg


- Running, it isn't as bad, I need to finish up the couch to 5 k program (I have 5 weeks left), and I'll do the first 3 sessions of Zombies RUN! when I finish that up, by the end of this challenge, running for half an hour solid!!


Scoring:  1 point per session, over a 6 week session this should add up to 18 points, based on a percentage of that (END-5)


 


Banish The Cheat from my Diet


the-cheat.gif


-Diet: moving to a simpler easier to manage scoring system because I have a hard time with this stuff lol, 4 little rules and two exceptions


1. No snacks!


2. No Sweets!


3. No Seconds!


4. No Soft Drinks! (defined as non water)


EXCEPT!


1. On some days that start with S


2. For my Caffeine which will consist of either zero calorie energy drinks or black coffee


Scoring:  I'll get a +1 for each cheat meal, as long as I don't go over 6 (one for each day I am allowed) points then I get an A, minus 1 grade point for each additional!  (WIS-2 CON 2) (WIS because I will have finally figured out a dieting schema that works for me)


 


LIFE QUEST Get with Compy to do Games and stuff for cool people!


sbemail.png


Working on gamey stuff! Play some more with Unity, do the next 2 tutorial projects, and get started on my own game! (get assets, I can use free ones from the unity store, and start setting the project itself up)


Scoring:  I'll get a +1 for each project that I do (finish the tutorials and lay the a bit of ground work for the game project as I obviously will not finish a full game in 6 weeks), up to 3, I will get an extra point if I can get a functional demo build out of my own game, described as the ability to go through a single battle with a canned party, if I get all 4 I'll see about getting that shiny new graphics card I want (CHA +3)


 


MOTIVATION


I use to like saying I looked at my body and thought "yuck" but in the past few months, that has become less the case (I haven't weighed myself in awhile, but I'm pretty sure I'm not 210, maybe 200 but I don't know for sure....pictures forthcoming)  but I now see where I can go, and how not hard it is to get there (seriously, I only workout for like 4 or 5 hours A WEEK) so now I just wanna be the best me I can be, lift heavier, run longer, get a 6 pack lol

(For real though, it looks great. Again, I totally dig your approach to diet right now! And of course, getting strong and running are both good in my book. I am especially excited to hear about your progress on your own game!!)

 

Errr... I mean ... uh.... YOU'RE GOING DOWN, CUPCAKE!

So much fun.

 

I don't know if rows are considered part of the big functional lifts, but like Sylph says, they're a good idea to add. They are an excellent counter balance to bench press (horizontal push vs, pull)

Without them, you 1) don't balance pushing (as you said) and 2) don't get a complete workout for your back. You need a pull from the floor (deadlift variant), pull from above (pull up variant) and a horizontal pull (row variant) if you really want to work your back appropriately.

 

Depends on your definition of 'functional' I suppose.

 

I like 'basic.'

 

6 basic lifts. :)

Love the goals! This from a guy who used to build his own fast food items by combining? Or have I just lost my mind. I'm in on the 5lb contest if you will have me. I can trash talk with the best of them.

Great theme and great goals. But, gotta find a way to work the poopsmith in there.

I did Couch to 5K and can't recommend it highly enough. Here is my take on the weeks:

Week 1: Woo, I can do it

Week 2: Hey I'm getting better

Week 3: I AM A BADASS!

Week 4: WTF? There's no way in hell I'm finishing this

Week 5: Are you kidding? I don't know how I did week 4?

Week 6: Hmm? I'm not dead... 

Week 7 and on: I'm a runner!

 

Seriously, get through weeks 4 and 5 knowing that they are the real test. Repeat them if you have to, but get to that 20 minute run so you can see that you can do it.

AANNND REPORT! (I've been working hard...I know I'm late...whatever lol)

 

DIET: my biggest problem, and greatest foe, I have held my own, I have not succumbed to the siren song of cookies, and ice cream, and cake, and chocolate, but only through sheer white knuckle determination, hopefully this gets easier, one day at a time

wreck-it-ralph-1.jpg

I have done weights on monday and will be doing them, shortly after posting this actually, hopefully before the 3 pm stand up I will be done lol

 

as for running, I am redoing week...4 of the c25k, so I will do weeks 4-end this challenge...my heart nearly exploded yesterday lol, so I stopped, switched to week 4 and did that, I also need a no loafing sign in my house...if only to remind myself that my muffin top should new evolve back into a pound cake (hee hee)

 

OH! I jiggle less when I brush now, it is only during vigorous side to side brushes that my gut sways...so that's good

OK! so repeating week 4 in couch to 5K continues

qwop-game.jpg

that's about how I feel with this whole running thing....yup

Lifting weights continues unabated, and I ahve not had any of the ice cream in my house! though it tempts me, constantly, with it's intense chocolaty goodness  harkening ever closer, not unlike smeagol and the one ring, but I must resist lest I devolve into a Gollum
