OptimusPrimarch is alright


Recommended Posts

Cooked fajitas used iceberg lettuce as the wrap, worked much better than romaine.

 

Also got back into my morning groove:

 

 

7x2 6x1 Assisted Pistol Squats

7x2 6x1 Decline Pike Pushups

7x2 6x1 Straight Leg Leg Lifts

7x2 6x1 incline one arm pushups

7x2 6x1 Elevated Leg Inverted Rows

60 second boring normal plank

Cooked pork sausages on the bbq last night, with some broccoli.

 

Confirmed there wasn't any filler in them so bonus points for paleo goodness.

 

Wasn't feelin' the workout this morning so a did a bit of stretching.  I'm thinking I need a slight shake up to the routine to re-engage, just not sure what I should do instead.  Maybe a week of yoga or something that, I'm open to suggestion.

So my workout consisted of grappling with someone 60 lbs heavier than me.

 

Also my Goldilocks trend continued, the third dan who runs the grappling night used me for all his demonstration.  He has no idea that some of the other blackbelts refer to me as the Goldilocks partner either, I'm just that perfect size and shape.

Did 7FG throw you around?  I gave him GL permission to throw you around after his interview.

 

also now that my phone is behalving like a phone

 

here is some food I made.

 

Yes I know there is a thread for it but it is also a key part of my challenge

Those both look tasty as hell.  Now I'm hungry again.

He didn't get the chance, I was the third dan's training dummy and then I was working with a brand newbie, which is always an interesting experience.

Been bad about updates but here is one

 

Got stick work in on Saturday before class started, got the full hour in too.  Was working with one of the kids in the club explaining the ins and outs of stick work and targeting when using a stick to help give him a point of reference to the sequence we were working on.

 

Cooked a sweet potato hash last night, it was pretty tasty but needed more bacon.  Used leftover lettuce like scoops for eating it, worked nicely.

Wrap up/Rundown post:time!

 

No Cheating!  (+2 Wis, +2 Sta)

 

"Mercy is the mark of a great man"

*STAB*

"Guess I'm just a good man"

*STAB*

"Well, I'm alright" - Mal

 

 

 

A: 0-3 slip ups 

B: 4-9 slip ups

C: 10-14 slip ups

D 15 or more

 

8 slip ups.  I did really well here, I think the cooking thing really helped, ordered food way less and when I did was not nearly as inclined to be bad

 

Stick Practice (Dex +3, Sta +3)

 

"You got a wife?  All I got was that dumb-ass stick that sounds like its raining." - Jayne 

 

 

A: 2 hours of practice a week

B: 1 hour of practice a week

C: 30 min of practice a week

D: 15 min of practice a week

 

Averaged out to a solid B at 1h15m, got more in during week 1, 2 an 4 but nothing in week 5.  Stick work is fun so this was't a hard part of the challenge for me.

 

Time to cook (Wis +3, Cha +2)

 

Zoe: So… are you enjoying your own nubile little slave girl?
Mal: She wanted to make me dinner. Well, at least she's not cryin'.
Wash: I might. Did she really make fresh bao?
[Zoe glares at Wash.]
Wash: ...Quaint!
Zoe: Remember that sex we were planning to have, ever again?
 
 
 
 
 
A: 2 meals a week
B: 1 meal a week
C: 1 meal every 2 weeks
D:1 meal every 3 weeks
 
SUPER proud of this accomplishment.  Not only did I drastically improve the amount I cook, but it never felt tedious or painful, and one of the meals I cooked was a BBQ with home made burgers, and other meats for 6 people!  The key with this quest will be maintaining my performance and ideally improving even farther.
 
Sidequests failed, I've been trying to work up to heading into the gym super close by and just getting the membership but it hasn't happened yet.  Maybe that will be the goal for my week off.  I think next challenge will shift more toward fitness goals again regardless of what I do.
 
Final rating, B+
