Megawolf's Quest: The Trainee Assassin

Argh I feel you on that! I don't kill spiders when they're outside as I know they're important for the ecosystem but INSIDE THE HOUSE IS NOT NICE, SPIDERS. 

 

Getting stronger, breaking new PR's: It's all part of this wonderful experience that comes with strength training. Honestly, it's good for the body, mind and the soul. I absolutely understand how you feel and that's amazing! Keep leveling up!

 

Maybe you could time your meals, then! That definitely helps with portion control and it's a bit easier to track if you don't have a food scale. :D 

 

Congrats on a badass workout and improvement! You're doing amazingly!

Congratulations for getting Most Wanted, Mega!

 

I feel you on the spiders - don't wanna kill them, but some of the ones we have here in Australia are either huge and ugly, super poisonous, or both. Only huntsmans are allowed to live for a little while inside, if I can catch them and throw them outside before the cats catch them and eat them!

Mega wolf, you're doing so super awesomely on this challenge! Congrats on making it to the most wanted list!

I still can't get over those spiders. I mean... Damn.

But it's great to hear how much your strength is improving! Good luck with organising your closet!

 

Thanks! I totally didn't expect to make the list. Personally, I think you belong on the list for pursuing your fitness goals even while injured.

 

Thanks again for all the encouragement! :)

 

Woo! Most wanted! Congrats, Mega. :D

Now... RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!

Seriously!? That's insanity... Getter was THE original combining mecha. TTGL was really just a love note to Go Negai's whole body of work. Kids these days... no respect for the classics! Probably "never bothered" with the UC gundam shows either. /curmudgeon

 

Now that my face is on a poster, I'm definitely going to have to improve my fitness to keep from getting caught!

 

And yeah, Getter is the combining mecha that all others aspire to be. That clip I posted before is from a PSP game where you can actually team up one of the iterations of Getter (the one from Getter Robo Armageddon, not the original) with Gurren Lagann and face enemies from both universes. The interactions between Ryoma and Kamina are fun to watch. At one point, they decide to test eachother's resolve with a staring contest that lasts for hours and is ended in a draw when an enemy force attacks their camp. Amuro Ray also shows up in the game piloting his Nu Gundam from Char's Counterattack. :)

Thanks for the encouragement! I've decided what to do for my challenge modification. I am going to make it a general nutrition challenge focusing on replacing unhealthy snacks with healthy ones and not overeating at meals. Since I have a problem with portion control, I will be taking smaller amounts of food and paying attention to how I feel when I eat. That should help me to avoid shoveling food into my mouth just because I like the taste of it. Thanks for all the good ideas! :)

Our spiders are, thankfully, not quite as dangerous as the ones you have to deal with. They're still plenty creepy and they still have painful bites, though. The only ones we really have to watch out for here in the U.S. are black widows and brown recluses. I need to just find a way to discourage the spiders from coming inside. I'm perfectly fine with them keeping down the insect population outdoors. :)

This has been a fun week. I completed all 3 of my strength sessions for the week with my last update, so nothing new to report there. I also completed all of my conditioning and stretching goals! Conditioning on Sunday was especially fun. Instead of my usual exercise routine, I visited a state park with a couple of my brothers and hiked / ran a nature trail. It was a blast to dash up and down the terrain and deal with the natural obstacles of the area. Some recent storms had blown a few of the trees over, so I also got to have the fun of ducking under and jumping over them as I progressed. At one point, there was a big tree that had fallen lengthwise into the trail and blocked the entire path. Rather than walking through the tall brush on either side, I decided to employ my assassin balancing skills and run along the trunk. Fun! Enough about the nature trail, though. I could talk about it for hours. :)

 

I had pizza with my extended family on Friday, and even though there were 5 different varieties of delicious, cheesy goodness, I limited myself to a total of 2 slices. That was hard. There was enough pizza that I was able to put away a couple of slices for the next day. Even so, I managed to not exceed 2 slices per day.

 

As mentioned before, the pizza goal is too easy to meet. To compensate for this, I am changing the goal to be a general nutrition goal. From here on, I will replace unhealthy snacks with healthy ones (carrots, lettuce, etc.) and will not overeat at mealtime. To keep myself from overeating, I will eat more slowly and pay close attention to how I feel while eating. Since this will test me multiple times each day instead of a few times a week, I will also increase the number of failures permitted for each grade level.

 

Room organization is also going as planned, though I still have trouble motivating myself to do it before I engage in fun activities. I definitely need to work on doing it shortly after I get home instead of putting it off until bedtime.

Time for a mini-update!

 

I completed my strength training today and achieved another new PR! I managed to do six diamond push-ups in a row. That's three more than my previous best! I could only do that many on circuit 1 of 3, but it still felt awesome to be able to do it. I'm also getting better at inverted rows. I cannot currently do a full set of ten, but I can tell that it is getting easier to do the ones I am able to complete. In addition to these exercises, my circuit also consisted of lunges, step-ups, reverse crunches, and jumping rope. After the workout, I stretched. The stretching felt pretty good, though I was feeling kind of stressed afterward because I had spent too long on my workout and didn't have much time to eat.

 

Waiting for me back at my desk were my protein shake (26g of delicious protein) and a garden salad. One thing I really like about salad: all that fiber is very filling. Fast forward to about 20 minutes ago, and I'm suddenly feeling hungry again.

 

Need. Moar. PROTEIN!

 

I reach into my fridge and pull out what's left of the Hormel Naturals Basil, Rosemary, and Olive Oil Deli-Sliced Turkey I put on my salad last Friday. It still smells absolutely delicious. I take out 2 slices and start eating it. It tastes as delicious as the meat I occasionally dream about eating. Per my new goal, I contemplate the delicious flavor of this wonderful turkey and consider how they could possibly make it taste this good. Then, I happen to glance at the package again.

 

Prepare or freeze by Jul 09 2014

 

O.O

 

I literally bought this meat a week ago. I thought for sure I checked the date on the package and that it mentioned sometime in August. Nope. It's expired. Goodbye, delicious meat. *sniff* :(

It may still be okay, especially if it tastes fine.

 

It may have been, but it's too late for that now. I discarded what was left of the package shortly before writing my post. Throwing it out hurt because it really was the meat of my dreams. :(

 

I've purchased another package of the stuff, and I made sure to check the expiration date this time. I'm looking forward to adding it to my salad.

I completed my conditioning last night, though I ran out of time and didn't get to do the type of conditioning I wanted to do. Instead, I spent 20 minutes performing random, fast-paced exercises. It raised my heart rate and made me break a sweat, so it must have at least helped.

 

This new food goal is going to take some getting used to. It's still way too easy for me to just throw food into my mouth and gulp it down. I'm making sure I pay attention to how I feel every time I eat so I can make better decisions about what I eat in the future and I'm trying to control my portions as well. Since I didn't get to eat the meat I wanted, I picked up a P3 protein pack and a banana on the way home from work to deal with my hunger. My supper consisted of a small serving of pasta and a hard-boiled egg. It wasn't a perfect day, but I feel good about what I ate.

 

Today, however, has not started quite as well. I left for work early (yay), so my carpool buddy wanted to stop at McDonald's for breakfast (not yay). Food from that place isn't exactly what I consider healthy, but I was hungry for breakfast. I ordered the sausage burrito meal. Although I didn't overeat, I still feel guilty about grabbing a meal from McDonald's. At least the meal had a decent amount of protein.

 

Since I didn't overeat and this wasn't a snack and I made sure to analyze how I felt about eating it, I'm not counting this less-than-good decision as a failure. However, in order to make myself feel better, I'm going to try to avoid all snacks and unhealthy food for the rest of the day and crank up the difficulty level of my conditioning.

 

As for bedroom organizing, there's not really anything interesting to report here. I'm working on organizing my closet, and there is definitely a lot to do there.

Don't feel bad about the McDonalds. If you are (which you are) sticking to your diet, the little happenings of a sausage burrito or a couple of slices of pizza shouldn't throw you off. But I understand that guilt. Just don't beat yourself up about it or overexert yourself by imposing your own penance.

Meaty tragedy, oh noes! D:

At least it didn't smell rotten. I've been halfway through food before realizing it had gone off... Not a fun experience.

Nice work on the diamond PUs! And your scores are totally kick-butt! I think you've got the right idea about the McDonald's thing; you're obviously not interested in making it a habit, and didn't do it mindlessly, so I wouldn't sweat it.

Now that my face is on a poster, I'm definitely going to have to improve my fitness to keep from getting caught!

And yeah, Getter is the combining mecha that all others aspire to be. That clip I posted before is from a PSP game where you can actually team up one of the iterations of Getter (the one from Getter Robo Armageddon, not the original) with Gurren Lagann and face enemies from both universes. The interactions between Ryoma and Kamina are fun to watch. At one point, they decide to test eachother's resolve with a staring contest that lasts for hours and is ended in a draw when an enemy force attacks their camp. Amuro Ray also shows up in the game piloting his Nu Gundam from Char's Counterattack. :)

Ah, SRW... is there no limit to the crazy crap you can pull? I'm still working my way through the GBA editions, so I haven't tried the PSP ones. Kamina vs. Ryouma sounds epic, though!

Thanks. I still don't like that I gave in and bought the food, but it could have been worse.

It didn't smell or taste rotten. I figured that expired meat would smell or taste awful, but this honestly tasted amazing. Maybe the herbs helped preserve the meat or maybe Hormel just underestimated how long it would stay good for.

 

Diamond push-ups are definitely still difficult for me, but I know that I will conquer them if I keep at it. As for McDonalds, I was mostly annoyed with myself for caving and buying a whole meal. I try to avoid fast food most of the time (though Taco Bell is my true weakness), but what I need to work on most of all is downsizing the amounts I eat.

 

SRW is pretty high up in my "favorite video game series" list. I even bought a Famicom just so I could play SRW 2 in its original glory. The first one I bought was Super Robot Taisen Original Generation for GBA, and I played that game to death. I picked up OG2 when I was finally able to find a copy and enjoyed it even more than the first game. Since then, I've collected several games for GBA, PS1, PS2, PSP, and with the addition of SRW Z3, PS Vita. :)

No serious strength training yesterday since I have to give my muscles time to rest, but I did manage another milestone: I completed a standing chin-up! I still need about 65 lbs. of counterweight to complete a dead-hang chin-up, but this is more proof that my workouts are building my strength. :)

 

Since we have a new mini-challenge, I decided to use that for my conditioning. I need to work on my form, but rolling is incredibly fun. I stretched after I was finished, something I probably should have done beforehand...

 

Lunch consisted of a turkey and ham chef salad and a banana. I don't put dressing on my salads because I like to taste the natural flavor of the vegetables. Supper consisted of a hamburger and a small burrito. As planned, I avoided snacks all day long. My breakfast this morning was a banana, and I have also eaten a few baby carrots.

 

Slow and steady progress on bedroom organization. I definitely can't let things pile up in there again once I have the whole place set up. I need to come up with a good way to store my clean clothes since I currently do not have a dresser. Maybe I should buy a couple of storage containers and place them in the closet once it's organized.

I always have a ton of boxes on hand because I order a lot of stuff from the Internet, but I think I need something I can easily seal. I don't need to find those spiders I mentioned lurking in my clothes.

Completely true. This is why I often donate them to my young siblings. ^_^

Strength training continues as normal. A couple more weeks of my workout plan, and I should be ready to move up to the next level. It's still pretty exciting to see exercises that used to be difficult getting easier to perform. I made sure to complete my stretching immediately after my workout so I could kickstart the recovery process. My conditioning for the day consisted of repeating my warm-up routine, jump-rope, rolling, and doing general cardio stuff.

 

Yesterday's lunch was a salad made from organic lettuce, organic baby carrots, and delicious turkey that wasn't expired. I say it was a salad, but I ate it more like roll-ups or paleo tacos. Basically, I take a leaf or two of lettuce, place a slice of meat on it, place 2-3 baby carrots on the meat, and either roll it or fold it. It's delicious, crunchy, and definitely better for me than what I used to eat for lunch. I snacked on celery and guacamole later in the afternoon.

 

I had Taco Bell for supper (more fast food, I know), but I don't feel bad about my decision because I chose to eat a more healthy option from the  menu instead of what I usually take. It's hard for me to pass up the quesarito meal, but I opted for a chicken Cantina power bowl with a crunchy taco on the side. The Cantina power bowl is kind of like a salad and consists of white rice, meat (chicken, in this case), beans, avocado, sour cream, lettuce, and pico de gallo. Instead of my usual Mountain Dew, I took a Sobe Lifewater. As for this morning, I have only eaten a banana so far.

 

I got home pretty late last night and was feeling pretty exhausted and stressed. As such, I bypassed organizing my bedroom in favor of getting a few more minutes of sleep. I'm not sure if that was a good or bad decision, but I needed the extra rest for dealing with stuff at work.

Notes:

Somewhere along the line, I must have accidentally given myself a point for organizing my bedroom that didn't belong to me. I distinctly remember forgetting to do it one day early on, so I will need to go back through my posts to figure out where I made the error. In any case, my decision last night has dropped me back down to a high B for this goal. I'll have to make sure I don't miss any more points if I want to pull an A out at the end.

 

I must apologize for not keeping up with everyone else's threads. I've been super busy lately and it has been hard to find the time to even update my own.

I hope you all can forgive this wolfman for his failure to prioritize his time better. I will try to check and post in your threads more often. Thanks again for cheering me on, everyone!

Wow, Megawolf. Following your progress is such an inspiration. You've been doing great in all areas of your life and even at McDonald you found a way to eat somehow healthy so that's victory in itself. 

 

I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to give me some support on my thread, it really means a lot. Don't worry about following everybody's thread. Summer is busy for all of us and we all need some rest.

Thanks! That power bowl was actually really good. I doubt I'll pass up the quasarito every time, but it's good to know that I have great-tasting options I can use to eat a bit healthier while still having the enjoyment of eating out with friends. :)

 

No worries, bro! As a repentant lurker, I know how hard it can be to find all the hours in a day that you'd like to find. Focus on your goals first, and play cheer leader with what time you have left.

You're doing great work! Don't beat yourself up if you don't pull a straight A challenge (I've never managed it, and I've been playing this game for almost as year!)

 

I guess we could all use a few more hours in the day. Thanks for the support!

 

I know I shouldn't beat myself up over missteps, but I still want to strive to do my best. Getting an A on a challenge is what I consider to be my best, and I should be fully capable of pulling it off. The biggest thing is prioritization of time. It's very easy to just tell myself that I'll do something after a couple rounds of a video game or something, but that results in me losing some of the willpower necessary to stick with my goals. I just need to do all my high-priority stuff before I sit down for a gaming session. :)

 

Wow, Megawolf. Following your progress is such an inspiration. You've been doing great in all areas of your life and even at McDonald you found a way to eat somehow healthy so that's victory in itself. 

 

I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to give me some support on my thread, it really means a lot. Don't worry about following everybody's thread. Summer is busy for all of us and we all need some rest. 

 

Keep on rocking, you're amazing! And congrats on the diamonds push-ups!!!

 

Thanks, Arya! I want to thank you for taking out time to encourage me, as well. It's because I have awesome friends like you cheering me on that I'm able to maintain my momentum. :)

 

You're doing super well on this challenge despite all the stress and busy-ness. I've been struggling to keep up with everyone's threads too! Just keep being awesome, and catch up with us when you have the time :)

 

Thanks, Pixie! I'm hoping that my busy-level drops just a bit, soon. You keep being awesome, too! :)

I completed my strength training last Friday, and ended up with another new PR! I can now do a full set of 10 diamond push-ups! I still have a bit to go before I can do 3 full sets (at which point I will increase the difficulty of my workout), but this is another milestone on my quest to power-up.

 

Friday wasn't all epicness, though. I faltered a bit on my conditioning due to an important ice cream party that lasted late into the night. It was necessary though, because I knew it was going to be the last time I would see my younger brother for a while. Yes, this means I also incurred my first food failure. I have to say that it was worth it, though. I'm probably going to miss my little bro since I had just gotten used to having him around again (he had been away for 3 years), but he has to move on with his life. Eating ice cream with him and his wife one last time before they moved away seemed like a good method of parting ways.

 

Bedroom organization has hit a point where I do more time thinking about how to organize things than I do actually organizing them. I guess something like that was inevitable, but it feels like the difficulty of this challenge has dropped a bit since things slowed down. Just as I changed up my food challenge, I may need to alter this one as well.

 

Strength Training: 3/3 - A - PERFECT

Conditioning / Stretching: 6.5/7 - A

Food: 1 failure

Organize Bedroom6/7 - B

 

Total Stats:

 

Strength Training: 9/9 - A

Conditioning / Stretching: 20/21 - A

Food: 1 failure - A

Organize Bedroom: 19/21 - A

 

End of Week Stats:

Weight: 194.8 lbs

Height: 5' 9"

Waist size: 37"

Body fat (using tape measure and Navy calculation): 25%

Push-ups: 3 sets of 10

Diamond Push-ups: 10/5/2

Pull-up Dead-hang chin-up: need to use 65 lbs of counterweight

Pull-up Chin-up (from standing position): 2 reps

Training HR: Forgot to measure...

 

Notes:

I've made some pretty decent improvements over my stats from last week! I broke my records on diamond push-ups, dead-hang chin-ups, and standing chin-ups (I had them confused with pull-ups, before), and my body fat percentage is down! My clothes are starting to feel more loose, so I may have to buy some new ones soon. Progress! ^_^

Wow, so much progress in one week and so much awesome! Such progress. Much PR's. (I really am not good at memes). But yes, that ice cream was well-deserved especially since it was time spent with family and you won't see your brother for a while!

 

High-five for an almost perfect week and for you being awesome and kicking ass!

Ice cream to say goodbye to close relatives - I can't think of a better reason to throw dietary restrictions to the wind!

 

Mega congrats on your PR (see what I did there?) - that's a lot of diamond push-ups! What are you going to do next? I vote for clapping push ups because they're really hard ;)
