TheComebackKid becomes a Blade Runner


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite movies, and one of the great nerd films, is Blade Runner. A future filled with Flying spinners, moral ambiguity, and noodles…What else do you need? My goals this time are based around Blade Runner and I don’t plan to leave an ending open to interpretation. :)

 

  1. “Retire†Tasks: I want to set and accomplish a substantial daily work goal, a fitness goal, an errand goal, and a personal goal.
    3 STA
     
  2. Replicant: Fitness Model: I want to change myself from a replicant sedentary model, to a replicant fitness model. I’d like to do 200 pushups, 200 situps, 40 lunges, 40 bodyweight squats, and 5 one minute planks as an everyday routine.
    1 DEX, 2 STR
     
  3. Track Em Down: Just as Deckard keeps track of replicants, I’m going to keep track of my diet and post on my page. I’ve fallen off in previous NF challenges, and hoping that this tracking will help me start (and finish) the challenge strong.
    2 CON, 1 WIS
     
  4. C-Beams in the Dark: A beautiful line from a beautiful last speech about lights in the night. I’m a night owl, but I’m also wildly irresponsible. So, Sunday-Thursday, I need to set a bed time. I’ll go to bed at 2330 every night and wake up at 0630 every work morning. No fun, but so be it.
    1 CON, 1 STA, 1 WIS
     
  5. Tears in Rain: I’m going to make my guitar gently weep. I’ve gotten out of the habit of playing and would like to play at least 20 minutes every day. A definite “embrace the suck†situation.
    3 CHA

My overall/daily nutrition tracking sheet is here. I totally...replicated...someone else's template.

 

If I do well in this challenge I'll watch Blade Runner.

 

Get at em

How's it going? Seems like you're committing to a LOT of pushups and situps daily... that amount would kill me.   :nightmare:

And it's killing me too haha. I've actually cut back to 100/100 for the situps and push-ups because the higher number just isn't realistic at my current physique level. I can do that fine a few times in a row, but not every day. I've kept everything else the same. 

 

I've updated my tracking sheet and I'm doing really well on three of the five goals (goal-setting, wake-up/bedtime, and diet tracking), ok on one goal (fitness routine), and flunking another (guitar). But I will add that I am still playing more guitar than I was before, so that's a plus. 

 

I didn't look at the scale the first few weeks but have weighed myself with a 3lb weigh gain the last three days. Time will tell whether this is water, fat, or muscle.

Your Slytherin teammates could really use your help. Check your AMRAP scores, even if you've only improved a little, it will still help up our average.

Thanks, I've been catching up on tracking stuff from my physical journal to the web today...thanks for the heads up.

Hey TCK, fellow Slytherin member checking in.

 

Hows things going?

Feeling good feeling great. Just caught up on my posting and moving over to the mini now but having trouble editing it. All in all, a pretty good challenge so far. Had a bad food weekend this July 4th. My family definitely struggles with overeating and I joined in.
