From Skeksis to Sexy...jennilovesryan challenge 2


Recommended Posts

Are you afraid of me hmmmm? Think I am going to eat you?

 

Hee hee. I am probably not going to eat you. I try my hardest to only eat locally sourced vegetarian fed free range people. And besides the above is just a quote from the Dark Crystal.

 

I figured to make my BIG GIANT CHALLENGE NUMBER TWO *picture confetti and fireworks and glitter all around those words* more fun for myself that I would pick a super cool 80's movie theme. And well, I just happen to be wearing a Dark Crystal tee shirt right now too. I'm not very creative. Or very Nerd Fitness forum advanced either because I can't figure out how to picture up my post with all of the fun visuals that I could have added from the movie. The hamster turning the wheel only goes so fast apparently.

 

NONE THE LESS

 

HERE I AM AT THE RANGER'S GUILD. I am so excited! I thought I would be all druidy but since I've been lifting and running just as much as practicing yoga regularly it's kind of an all around sort of vibe that I've been feeling and the Rangers seem to fit that mold. Hooray!

 

TRIAL BY STONE! TRIAL BY STONE!

 

Previously I've been guilty of not watching what I've been consuming and not doing a whole lot of moving around unless it had to do with me going to make another rum and diet. For my first challenge I cut out alcohol, went paleo, developed daily gym and yoga habits, and lost about 15 pounds. Starting the 8th I want to change my goals to focus on my measurements (like the NF blog post about tracking recommends) and on becoming all around more athletically inclined.

 

MAIN QUEST

To wear a size 7 again. This hasn't changed. It isn't exactly gelfling size and it isn't exactly a measurement but it's the size that I've always felt best in.

 

QUEST ONE

To my strength training add a glutes day once a week. This, in theory, will help to cure the horrible long standing sickness I've been carrying around known as "Nobuttatall". I test ran my first potential round of questionable buttasstic movements at the gym today (probably to everyone there's secret humorous delight) and it consisted of more squats, cable kickbacks, weighted hip thrusts, kettlebell swings. If anyone has super fantastical bum transformative moves I will take suggestions all day long.

 

QUEST TWO

To my endurance training I want to add the milestone of reaching a 10 minute mile. This doesn't has to happen multiple times, only once before this challenge is over. My training on the Zombies Run 5k app is almost over and I want to finish it then focus on making this happen. The runners forums and such say that the 10 minute mile is a positive goal to reach for and it sounds kind of bad ass. I mean, bad ass for me. XD

 

REMIXXXXXX: HIIT Training 3x a week.

 

QUEST THREE

To my yoga training I want to add a home practice to my routine twice a week to help strengthen myself for inversion poses. I mostly have to get over being scared because falling down/over is not really something I am fond of doing. The more stable I feel in more challenging weight bearing poses the safer I'll feel about not busting my face into pieces. I have a few things archived and saved here and there to start my home practices but if anyone has advice on this too here I am, ready to sponge up your knowledge and education.

 

LIFE QUEST 

Previously this was moving to Portland because Florida is a blazing inferno of death. This may or may not ever happen because plethora of reasons. My husband and I decided that if he does not secure this last job that he interviewed for that we would focus on making the most of this terrible awful swamp of old peopleness by purchasing a home here and making it our own. Beyond those two things I think that my life goal will change from moving to Portland to figuring what I might be good at doing for the rest of my life as soon as possible if he doesn't land the position. Like, my big girl job and stuff. I'll keep you posted on what happens.

 

So what now?

 

We follow or don't follow the prophecies, play little pan flutes, listen to the mystics, steal each other's life essences, whatever.

 

All of this stuff will be additional to what I've already built in the previous challenge. I made a schedule and a chart and everything. It's all very fancy and important and very boring to other people so I'll leave this up here until I start sporadically posting the insanity that starts once I am challenging. My grading will be based off of doing the things and won't be very mathematical.

 

I haven't decided whether or not I'll be posting my experiments with natural healthy earth loving products like I did before. I have a few new thingies that I've tried but I don't know how much jennilovesryan obnoxiousness that the Rangers will want put up with. XD

 

Looking forward to reading everyone else's challenges.

As for the butt thing, I just listened to a podcast called "how to add mass to dat ass" and they suggested Glute bridges, heavy quarter squats, rear foot elevated split squats, wide stance squats, and Sumo deadlifts, and get a weight where you can do 10-15 reps of each! I haven't had a chance to try this yet but it sounded pretty legit to me!

Why not on the back of (yoga) pants/shorts/underwear/anything worn around dat ass that area?

Seconded! And yeahhhhh I want some too! Although according to my mirror my ass is sufficiently massed, so maybe it's redundant?

DO YOU THINK THAT 108 SUN SALUTATIONS IS A GOOD IDEA?

 

Seriously. For the summer solstice on like the 22nd or something as opposed to sacrificing the usual virgin goats and innocent children to the angry god of the golden sky sphere my yoga studio is going to do ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT FRACKING SUN SALUTATIONS. Like, in a row.

 

It seems like sort of a lot but I kind of want to try to do it. You can take a break if you want and different teachers will be leading at different times so it's not like they are going to make you sun salute until you bleed or pass out or anything. The challenge of trying to do it is sort of calling to me though. Plus it benefits a program for vets which is a super added bonus.

 

Think I should try it? My husband does. AND SPEAKING OF THAT, he is doing a 6 week challenge of his own here - freshly posted to the recruits area just a few minutes ago. He has some solid goals and I'm totally proud of him for getting on the NF tip! Everyone knows I'm not good at the linky forumish stuffs right now but if you want to enjoy his hijinks and show him some NF spirit his username is baldheadcholo. Find him and give him some squeezes. XD

 

ABOUT DAT ASS

 

@DarK_RaideR I think that you are a marketing genius and that my butt (and maybe everyone else's too) should totally be embossed with MASS DAT ASS ASAP. However, for me specifically it will have to be in the world's tiniest font. Like 12 point or something. LOL.

 

@someguyfromscotland How about "J-No to J-Lo"? See what I did there? *Insert Eyebrow Waggling Here*

 

@bekah Super terrifical hooray to all of these tidings! Especially the not committing mass public murder part! YAY! This week is kinda wonky. This month in general is always wonky because SO MANY JUNE BIRTHDAYS (including mine, confetti!) but I'll poke around to see what could happen. And PS, we might NOT exclude your area in our house hunt if Salem doesn't pan out.

 

Yoga, gym, swimming today. And by swimming I mean floating around the pool randomly in my sad broken bathing suit (need a new one but don't see the point while my body is "transitioning") doing a lot of nothing. My favorite!

 

Everyone be good. Only a small bit of time left until HARDCORE CHALLENGING RESUMES. RAHHHHHHHHHRRRRWWWRRRR!

DID I JUST EARN A GYM BADGE?
 
Today was leg day. Leg day always starts with squats, squats of which I graduated to the "big boy" weights per my husband today. What equates to "big boy" weights? Apparently 135, which I am admittedly pretty darn happy about (6 reps too). After said squats we continued on in our workout and when we got to the calf raises one of the trainers stopped by and was like "Hey, great job on that 135 today. That was my goal for the longest time and now I'm up to 200!".
 
She seemed pretty psyched about it, which made me feel pretty psyched too.
 
SQUEE.
 
Otherwise I moved the following stuffs around:
 
Leg press 230 x6 I tried for 250 and then 240 but my muscles were like OH NO GIRL! Maybe next time. XD
Leg extensions 110 x4
Standing calf 165 x6
 
The normal drill, 4 sets starting with 10 reps each increasing weight till exhaustion.

 

Overall a big bouncing hooray for our gym visit. Looking forward to yoga tomorrow morning to stretch everything out and running afterwards.

 

Big hearts!

Glad to see you found your inner Ranger!  It is going to be a fun ride here in this guild.  I love how you pulled your husband on board, too.
