Okay, so the last couple of challenges, I've got through and survived. There's still progress to be made, though.

 

I have some BIG things coming up in this challenge!

  • 31 October - GBPF (UK IPF affiliate) referee exam
  • 28 November-6 December - Vancouver for Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships
  • 2 December - Competing in my first international powerlifting comp
  • 7-9 December - Visiting Nerds in Seattle
  • 9-12 December - Visiting Nerds and family in Boston

I'm currently working through a peaking routine so towards the middle and end of November I will be freaked out and really tired.

 

Current maxes:

  • Squat - 132.5kg
  • Bench - 75kg (training max), 72.5kg (comp max)
  • Deadlift - 135kg

Goals:

  • Squat - 140kg+
  • Bench - 80kg+
  • Deadlift - 145kg+

Accentuate the positive

 

I have a bit of a reputation as being grumpy, argumentative and opinionated and sometimes being negative probably gets me down even more, so I'm going to try to be positive and smiley and helpful this challenge.

Reach out to people and be helpful and positive. 

 

The goal is to average one positive or helpful comment on here a day until I fly out to Canada (and as much as possible after)... with room for slippage. If I have been genuinely helpful to you, though, let me know. 

 

Goal: 30 helpful or positive comments on other people's challenge threads, battle logs or enquiries +3 WIS +2 CHA

 

I know that seems low, but I know I'll struggle sometimes and I don't want to make any promises for whilst I'm overseas.

 

 

 

Unsurprisingly, I'm probably going to stress out as this challenge goes on. I know I can't win my weight class (I'm lifting a good 50kg less than the top girls in my class) but I'm hoping to come home with a medal for an individual lift. Training is going to be really tough as my programme is based off theoretical maxes at the moment (probably would have got them if I hadn't been sick at the British... but that's an excuse that's going about a lot).

 

This is going to be part of my positivity challenge and not really going to be scored, but it's something I need to be aware of.

 

Work dat ASS

Yup... Still having glute problems.

 

Goal here is to do at least one of my physio exercises every day. No big explanation here.

 

Total goal 42/42. +2 STR +2 CON

 

Sleeping Beauty

Frightfully boring, but the same as last time. Aiming for a minimum of 7 hours a night. This will help with recovery and with managing stress.

 

  • +1 7hrs
  • +1.5 7.5hrs
  • +2 8hrs+

 

Total time in bed is counted, rather than sleep on FitBit. 

 

Goal - +50

 

Bonus points -

  • Massage - +3
  • Date with Grant - +3
  • Long, hot bath - +2

Score - +3 CON +2 STR +1 WIS

We could have an NF nap room accountability group!

 

Actually...a good idea. The most ironically hard thing in existence.

I may have a minor love affair going on with my derrière.

Lots of weight from my stomach seems to have moved there. Great for lifting, but makes pencil skirts a gamble!

My house just doesn't get cleaned.

We're trying to clear out enough crap that we can just pay a cleaner to come in once or twice a week to keep things ticking over.

 

I have to be there when someone comes and I can't communicate with them because I don't speak polish and they don't speak english. So also my house just doesn't get cleaned until I have enough time to clean it myself. That's why I don't believe it would help me much if I had someone do it for me. :tongue:

Goodluck Sundae! Just so you know, you made me feel welcome when i first entered the chat! So you already helped me there :tongue:

 

Being helpful is not going to be a real challenge! If you can keep a positive outlook on everything though please let me know how you did it.

Look around for something positive, or even turn that negative into a positive. For example, my stove caught fire last weekend and it was internal, but instead of focusing on "Hey, I gotta buy a new stove, this sucks" I turned it into, "Hey, I'm not buying a new house, this is good"

 

It takes practice, but there's a start. :-)

Buying a new stove isn't a good thing? Kitchen porn ahoy!

Didn't really have the money for it... and I can do kitchen porn without the stove. *Moves to the counter*
