"Climb to the top of the world"

System reboot initiated.  ProtoJitters online.

Installation complete. Powering on.


It's time for me to get my head back in the game.  I'm going back to my old goals that I failed spectacularly at on my last challenge.  I will see this through. 


"And as you stand tall, you will see..."

I will be following a simple workout routine for the next 6 weeks.  I will continue my search for inner peace through meditation in the mornings.  Most of all, and without a doubt the most difficult for me; I will get my eating habits under control, specifically, portions.

 

"That when you fall..."

 

Work out 4 days per week.  No matter what.  My family has helped me in the past with my workouts, they will help propel me to the man I can be.  Too often I say I can't because I'm watching the kids or I have some obligation that prevents me from doing this.  No more.

0/4 - Weekly

0/24 - 6WC

Meditate 5 days per week.  This is usually not a problem, but for some reason, I fell out of habit.  Time to go back to my roots.

0/5 - Weekly
0/30 - 6WC
 

Portion Control.  Grading is subjective and difficult, but I will do my best on this.  I should not be finished with my meal and going back for seconds before my wife and kids are done with half of their plate.  I will try to limit my intake as well.  To give you an understanding of my capabilities, 3 Chipotle burritos is no problem for me to finish.  I was one quarter of the 36" pizza challenge team that finished in just over 13 minutes (the team gets 30 minutes) and had some of our friends pizza after.  I can eat.  I don't want that anymore.  Why?  Because I can't be there for my family if I'm dead. 
Pass/Fail 0/21 - Weekly
Pass/Fail 0/126 - 6WC

 

 

Bonus Level: Glass work.  I will finish at least one piece each week. After this challenge is over, I will have two weeks until my next craft show in Two Harbors.  I need to be well stocked for it.
0/1 - Weekly
0/6- 6WC

 

"You will fall from a height most men will never reach"

 

I will stumble along the way, but it will not stop me.  I will beat this.

Recently, I fell into the habit of drinking Red Bull again.  It's something that I struggle with every day.  Caffeine addiction is tough.  So, Naxius and I made a deal.  She goes to a one cup/day max and I go Red Bull free for this challenge.  Added bonus.

Welcome back!

 

Meditation is always well worth it. Although I found it quite difficult to get back into the habit. It required far more discipline than beginning... How do you experience this?

 

 

Good luck rebel!

I am the storm."

YAY!!YOU GOT THIS!!

oh and hi and shit :D 

Thanks, Bekah.  It feels good to be back and contributing again.  

 

OMG. This is so amazing. I can't wait to see how you roll with your challenge.

Thanks.  I'm looking forward to hitting this hard and kicking some butt this challenge.  I'm hoping to rock it hard.

 

Welcome back!

Thanks.  I've missed this place and the people.  Oh, how I've missed the people.  You rebels are the best around

 

JITTERS! Welcome back!

NAXIUS!  Thanks.  I feel like I can come home again.  Hope things are going well up north.

 

Yay Jitters is back! :D Missed you!

Indeed I am.  I have miss the antics of the Mistress of Hats as well.  Glad to be around again.

 

Welcome back!

Thank you, Guild Leader.  I started with some light meditation again this morning.  I agree, the discipline required to stay focused was higher than I remember.  It's going to make this challenge better for me, I think.  I can't wait to begin in earnest.

Every week, Raxie.  It encourages me to keep it going.  And if there are any requests, I'm all ears.

Thanks Kat.  I've hit the Red Bull again in the last month, so I'm going to be cutting that out as well with this challenge.

Bonus Level: Naxius/Jitters Withdrawal from Caffeine Land - No energy drinks for me so far this week.  Coffee, but no more than one cup a day.  I had a cup this morning, and it's not as appealing.  Maybe I can go without?  We'll see how it goes.

Feeling pretty good.  Sore from the workout, but that's to be expected.  I give plasma twice a week, so I get weighed every time I go in.  I was at a disappointing 258 lbs. on Monday.  I haven't been that heavy in a long while, so I'm glad I decided to reconnect with the Rebellion.  You guys encourage me to be better, and I am thankful for it.

Thanks, Kat.  Way to keep the Gifs alive.  

 

Great job so far this week, Jitters! Also that lighthouse sounds really cool!

Oh no, headaches are involved.  It is usually after 48 hours for me.  I feel them coming on now, but I had a banana this morning and I'm feeling great, minus the headache and lingering anger after last night.  BUT!  It's Friday and the sun is shining. 

Last night, I get a text from the Lady Wife asking if I was home yet (finished plasma and was about half a mile away).  I let her know that I was almost there, but not yet.  She said there was knocking on the door and someone she didn't recognize was there.  I pull up two minutes later.  The scene is this: driving up my street and on the south side one block away was someone moving and meeting with a realtor.  three doors down, south side, someone at a house knocking looking like they're waiting for an answer.  I pull up and go to my house.  I see my Latvian flag still rolled up laying on my front lawn.  If it was blown out of the holder, it wouldn't be rolled up.  Go into the porch and see two of my wife's quilt hangings off their holders and one of my stained glass pieces off it's hook and on the kids Lego table.  I go outside and look down the street again.  Guy who was at the neighbors was at the house next to where I saw him before.  He's checking the door handle and flips up the mailbox flag.  I follow at a distance as he goes to two more houses checking doors.  He crosses the street to the north side when he sees the lady moving stuff out of her house.  I call the non-emergency police line and give a description of the stranger and his actions.  While on the phone, he checks a gate for a high latch, goes to the house right next door and checks that door, then back to the gate and easily lets himself in.  I know my neighborhood; I've lived here for 14 years.  I know when things are out of place and these things are placed in certain yards that to me, look like he's casing houses to come back to.  Things like this piss me off.  I am calling in to PD on my break to see if they have an update for me.  We've been letting the neighborhood know as well.  Stranger, you are not welcome here.  

So that was my fun last night.  Made sleeping less than peaceful.  I'm a light sleeper to begin with, so yeah, half tired today, but half fired up.  Using that to keep me going.
