Nnimn Taking over the universe -one push-up at a time

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have had this challenge in mind for a while but it's taken me forever to get around to posting it. I've already been working on these so here 'tis:

 

My main quest is still anti-fragility with the additional goal of dropping my BF% down to 20. Sadly, as I haven't been doing much the two weeks between challenges, I feel as though I lost a some ground so it's not starting over but definitely backtracking a bit. This is not good since I've got two mud runs during this challenge. Time to step it up.

 

So in harmony with this I will:

 

1) Keep record of everything I eat AND post it. I don't have limitations so far as to what it is (I usually eat AIP with the occasional addition of corn tortillas and rice), just that ANYTHING eaten must be written down. I admit I'm a little afraid of this one since I can't stand recording what I view as failure so this will keep my in line, I guarantee it. I will write it all down in a notebook on days I don't have internet access. 2 END 3 CON

 

2) Run/walk a min of 15-20 miles a week. I would like to run at least 8 miles/week and increase to 15 by the end of the challenge. I have no idea if the last part is realistic but we'll see. The priority is to at least get them in at first and then work on ratio. 3 END 2 STR

 

Last, but certainly not least:

 

3) Continue my quest for world domination by honing push-up skills (since everyone knows this is key). In practice this means I start with 2 sets of 25 full perfect form push-ups every other day and increase every week (either in number or difficulty) as a part of my strength training for those days. Ultimately I'd like to be doing handstand push-ups but that's probably quite a ways off for now. 4 STR

 

Cause right now, for one hadned push-ups, this is me:

So today I got in a total of about 5 miles miles. I ran about 3 of them. This puts me at 12.5 total so I'm gonna get 7 miles tomorrow and Sunday. Yesterday was body weight workout and push ups (Azha was really disappointed when I walked her to the park to workout, not solely to throw the ball). 

 

So here's my food today:

BFAST- organic uncured beef hotdogs

LUNCH -Coconut Curry Chicken w/ veggies

DINNER- Protein Spinach Smoothie

Snacks- Pineapple and Corn Chips

Okay food for today:

 

Bfast - Veggie Smoothie

PostRace Snack- corn chips

Lunch - S.Potato Fries and Steak

Dinner - Small Hamburger + Hotdog and Kale Salad

 

Workout - Did a 4 mile obstacle run in an hour -net climbing, hurdles, rope climbing, etc plus TONS of mud. It was awesome and I will post pics once they are uploaded to the compute. My timing would have been better but some of the obstacles had looooooonnnnggg lines O-O But still, I definitely think this is the best motivation for me to stick to my fitness goals  :eagerness: I did end up really heat sick though so I will definitely go for an earlier way next time.   :chargrined:

 

I also got in another 1.5 miles this evening so I need about 7 more tomorrow. I love that I'm feeling sore today already...
