Continuing the war against my quarter life/existential-y type crisis thing.   My success last challenge resulted in a not so anxious Hermy. Life... might be okay.  All might not be lost. Next battle!  Onward! 

 

Daria_299558_5552608.gif

 

Goal 1:  Volunteer

 

Last challenge I had a really hard time finding anything to do that fit with my schedule.  Goal is keep looking - pick something - do as much as possible. 

 

Grading: Subjective, up to 4 points - split between WIS and CHA.

Goal 2: Socialize

 

I did really well with this last challenge, but my first instinct is still to hermit.  Goal is get out there an be social but not let this monopolize my free time (see goal 1). 

Areas of concentration/priorities: 

- NF meetups

- Hang with friends 

- Meetup dot com gathering(s)

 

Grading: 

3 points possible - 1 point for every 2 friendly like activities - applied to CON.

Goal 3: Eat

 

I'm in a really weird/not good head space regarding diet right now.  That kind of happens when I cut or restrict pretty much anything for too long.  I need to step back and evaluate - focus on figuring out where the "too long" line is.  Reset self and sanity, then attack with new plan. 

Actual goal is to Eat. The. Food.  Do not intentionally restrict.  Do not go crazy either.  Just try to remember not to eat like an asshole most of the time. 

 

Goal: Don't eat like an asshole.  Eat enough to fuel the workout.  Don't let the guilt of eating mess with the head. 

 

Grading: Subjective up to 2 points applied to CON and/or WIS

Goal 4: Lift Heavy, Run Far

 

Last year at this time I fractured my foot - some may recall that fun.  Before the fracture, my aerobic and endurance base was pretty damn good.  Since the healing of the fracture, it's pretty much gone (use it or lose it, guys).  I've had a hankering for some running (no, seriously, I don't even know who I am) and decided to do Couch to 5K as an easy-ish program that will force me out for runs (as opposed to me just saying, "Hey, I'll do some runnin'").  

 

So, new workout plan is roughly: 

 

Sun - run

Mon - rest

Tues - lift

Wed - run

Thurs- lift

Fri - run/yoga 

Sat - lift 

 

(and you see why I need to EAT)

 

Goal A: JDTFPBLTMB - follow all my programming (lifting and over all fitness) but listen to my body - if it gets too much, scale back, take a day, whatever I need. 

 

Goal B: Add 10 pounds to my squat  (had to drop the weight to get used to HB again, so time to rebuild). Run. 

 

Goal C: Recovery - Get to sleep on time, no matter how good my book is.  Take at least 1 epsom soak per week. SMR  my ass off (my quads are taking quite the beating with the squats and running)

 

Grading: 

Goal A - 1 point - pass or fail, applied to WIS.

Goal B - 1 point for every 5 pounds added up to 2 points, applied to STR, 1 point for the running, applied to DEX.

Goal C - 2 points, subjective, applied to CON

Exactly!  And, the way I'm planning my new fitness routine (including non lifting activities - what?) I have a feeling food will be necessary. Yeah. 

 

S`up?

 

We've got board games ... everything is better with board games

 

Holler! 

 

Yeah ya do! And yeah everything is!  

 

And mostly, I just miss you guys! We need a hang out soon. Yes we do. 

 

Oh, I keep meaning to ask (if I did already, please excuse my early onset dementia):  have you guys plan Funemployed? 

 

Who came up with quarter-life crisis?

 

Checking in.  Saying hi.  Following manually.

 

That's a good question. Let's blame the millennials!

 

Hi, hi, hiya!  

 

Loving it. Perfect gifs per usual [emoji6]

 

Thank ya, thank ya! 

 

this.  Oh yeah, and that social thing would be good too.

 

Deadlifts + socializing = happiness? chipperness? less freaking out about the status of my life?  All of the above! 

 

subbed!  :onthego:

 

Yay!  hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! 

 

I love Daria!!! :D I should really go back and rewatch, because why the hell not.

Great theme. 

 

Yeah you should! Daria is so great! I realized my title might be a little.... misleading/emo if you aren't a Daria fan (or pick up on the theme and figure it out).

Ya know, anecdotally I can confirm that it is pretty good for the ol' well being.  But yeah, it took me a lonnnnnnnnnng ass time to make this goal.

yas! Awesome incoming (I hope!)! 

 

Thanks for reminding about about not eating like an asshole!  I've been doing that a bit more than I'd like lately.

 

You and me - we will not eat like assholes.   We can totally do that. 

 

<3 you

 

ugh, <3 YOU!  <3 <3 <3 <3 

 

Hiiiiiiiiiiiii! Yes this challenge is the best. I recently rewatched season 1 of daria and it was like being 15 again except without the acne and ennui. So really it was like being 30 and watching my favorite cartoon.

 

Legit laughed out loud!  

 

Some of my fondest memories are hanging out, watching Daria marathons on MTV (remember when MTV didn't suck?).  So great. 

 

also Yay! Hi! Are you doing a challenge this time around? 

 

****

 

Not much to report on right now but I DID want to share my between challenge accomplishments.  

 

Last week I:

- Deadlifted 245.  That's 5#s under my previous 1RM.  BOOYA. 

- Benched more than I have ever benched. Ever. At all. (122.5 - teeny, tiny PR is still a mothafuckin' PR)

 

Best part: last week was a "weak" week.  I was feeling kinda run down.  So, uh. yeah. 

 

It's almost like relatively intelligent, consistent effort will like.. yield results.  Who woulda thunk it? 

 

****

In challenge related news:  I'm having a hell of a time with this programming.  Programming is NOT my strongest area. And every time I make a new program I want to include ALLTHETHINGS! because duh. But I can't. Not all the things. Anyhow, I may post it for insight later. Maybe. 

 

Technically pre challenge, but Saturday night Boyf and I went to a wedding celebration (friends got married out of town, so hosted a gathering here when they returned) for friends - lots of people we know from the gym (his current, my old).  Many hours of socializing.

Yes for PRs!!! Especially bench PRs because those are the hardest ones to come by :)

 

They ARE!  It's very exciting! I'm pretty stoked. 

 

Haven't read anything yet, but I have to say that this is my favorite challenge theme in the history of all things ever.

Now that I have read... I am DROOLING over your 245# DL. Holy lifts Batman, you're amazing!

:D Thanks!  It's taken YEARS.  

 

Yay!!!! Fingers crossed!  What's on your gym agenda today? 

 

****

 

So, I've pretty much been working on my programming non stop. It's going to be pretty brotastic, I think. 

 

I have - made some plans with friends (did I mention I have a standing yoga date with friends on Friday nights? Yay!)

I have - eaten the food.  Mostly not like an asshole. 

I have - been working on some of my fitness goals that are not yet posted while I work on programming. 

I have not done a damn thing for volunteering. 

 

Tuesday's gym session included volume squats and then me playing with various things to see how they'd fit together. 

Wednesday I ran.

Tonight's session will be deadlifts and more program testing.
