Awesome! Straight and to the point! The Hero's Journey workout looks really interesting.

 

And good luck on Goal 3—I read Thrones, Kings, and Swords in about a month total, and have been "reading" Crows for oh, about... two years. :P

I see more gifs in your future....

 

 

Anyway, nice basic challenge.  I'm always reluctant when people put "apply for jobs" in their challenge, but having only 3 (as opposed to 3 a week) is pretty doable.  (I learned the hard way that multiple applications a week was a bit soul crushing and missing my target here AND not getting a job put me in a bad mental place, so now I take every chance I get to tell people to not repeat my mistake.)

I am jealous of your purchases and your noticeable-even-in-pixelized-text excitement!

 

Way to go PW!

I've always been a little curious on Tai Chi.   You must let me know how it goes.

Ha.  I can give more props to SS.  My roommate is very pro 5/3/1 though.  And Supple Leopard I can't wait to dive into more, because I am gimp.  Also cheat jars FTW!

Work is cracking down on our internet usage so this is a quick one, actually typed it out on Word before posting. Woke up late yesterday so didn't work out in the morning, got to wrok, had a shitastic day (becoming par for the course here) was snowing when I got out so skipped the gym because the roads were supposed to get bad later on. Got home with full intentions of working out to find 2 of my friends and my wife playing magic, they had pizza and beer. PIZZA AND BEER!!!! I was good and only had pizza. (5 bux into the jar)  So the no alcohol portion of my challenge is still intact.

Watched a couple episodes of season 5 game of thrones with the wifey, then headed to bed. Got to bed around 10:30, pup woke up up around 6 this am. Polished off the pizza (added 3 more dollars to the jar) watched an episode of white collar, did yesterday's hero journey, going to do todays this evening when I hit the gym. My father in law should hopefully be over today to fix the wife''s vehicle then I can have my Jeep back! We will see.
