Hmm,

New place new opportunities right?

 

Well, 

first off, HI! I am smf, and uhh, I haven't been around in the forums much lately and when I was my 6 week challenges were with the warriors, things have changed so I am going to spend my next 6 weeks here.

 

The reason I am here now is because I started going to a Kickboxing/muay thai class last week, It's not a aerobic Kick boxing thing, it's at a martial arts school with a trainer etc. I am enjoying it a whole hell of a lot, but I guess that makes me a bit of a monk, and so here I am.

 

SOO lets talk about goals. 

My Main goal is "6pack by 30" uh, ya that's just a little under a year away. I number crunched and its achievable, but damn that will require a lot of work, restraint etc. But that may not be a bad thing, I need something to reach for. So here are the three goals for this challenge.

 

1. Lose weight

frabz-I-keep-trying-to-lose-weight-but-i

This is simple, we are dealing with a 6 week challenge, at 1.5lbs a week, I want to lose 9lbs by the end of the challenge. How? That's the hard part, a) I will be becoming ALOT more active, between maintaining lifting, kickboxing and even trying to work in some more cardio (ZUMBA on the WII, this stuff is addicting). B) That means I will need more carbs, maintain protein to minimize muscle loss, really work on getting my veggies in and keep enough calories in to not lose to much weight at once. Oh, and cut back on the dang Taco bell and Pizza hut (get ready to keep 1800-crybaby on speed dial)

 

2. Maintain my weight lifting

I am still lifting weights. It's unreasonable to think I can lose weight and keep increasing on the bar. I am low enough that my nervous system is still adjusting to though, so I do think though I can increase my working weight on my Squat and DL by 45lbs, my bench and OHP by 20lbs, Thats half of what SL would have me at by then and that seems more than fair.

 

3.Rock at Kickboxing

Yeah-BABY-kickboxing-beast-mode-meme-130

This is my first time doing any sort of fighting thing, being brand new at this, of course I am learning every time. The biggest thing for me right now though is cardio, I lift, that's all I do, I haven't done much cardio or conditioning work in close to a year. I am dying in every class just doing the conditioning work before we do lessons, so I need to step up my cardio/stamina game. This may sound silly to some (especially anybody that knows me) but I think I can do some "accessorie" work doing Zumba. I picked up this game for the wii, and it's a lot of fun, easy moves and does a good job of scaling, it also has me really working up a sweat. SOOOO basically, just do more cardio.

 

 

Expect 

MEMES... a lot of bitching... a lot of whining... and happy dance posts ... maybe food porn (i come from the warriors after all)... just awesomeness.. oh and spelling errors because

Welcome to the monks. I consider choosing martial arts to be one of the best decisions of my life to date. I only wish I'd done it sooner. =)

Its ironic, I didn't do it for so long because i thought i was to old to start doing any sort of combat thing, wish i would've not felt that way years ago.

Hey there! Speaking in memes? You'll do just fine here. Although, I think it's a language I'm going to have to learn (I'm still polishing my gif-speak).

 

It's never too late, and your diet is going to be the thing that gets you what you want. It'll happen slowly, and you'll want to be very careful with it. Don't get too married to one idea, but at the same time give a macro-spread a chance to work for a while - think one to two months, barring any unnecessary suffering on your part.

 

Looking forward to teh food pr0n.

Alright,

haha i had planned to post so much more, but this week has already been a mess.

 

I got my zumba and kickboxing in tuesday, a family emergency and a wedding prevented me from lifting wednesday, I got my kickboxing in thursday and friday and now I am sitting here with a very angry stomache and will not lift today as I am sure it would not be pretty.

Alright, so plan for monday, is get my lift in. Also plan this weekend on getting a plan together to eat better. Food has been terrible, mainly because I am tired of the meals i prepped, so i have to work on something there.

 

please-tell-me-si5cf7.jpg

 

Since you asked so kindly, basically meal prep is going to have to be the name of the game. I didn't know you could make salads in mason jars, so I am going to try that out. Also going to cook up a few meals to spread through out the week. Details? I don't know... shit I still have work on that.

Talk to Machete about the meal prep. He's great at that kind of thing and probably has a lot of good advice to give.

 

As to strength training and upset stomach and such like that... well. You're kickboxing more, so you're good as far as Monk-ing goes. Don't mistake strength-training for "I'm becoming a better martial artist." And if you got a problem in your stomach, I wouldn't recommend training hard anyway.

 

Take it easy and get back on your feet.

HEY

 

I am poking my head in to let you know that we're still rooting for you. I bet things are probably like super busy for you right now, but I hope life is well for you, whatever's going on. :D

Hey Thanks!

 

Haha I am actually writing this from the aiport.

 

Things have been a little crazy, i had a nerd visit and then I went to see a nerd, and now I am going to CO to spend time with family and some more nerds.

 

I have been doing good with the Muay Thai. I had my first few sparring session...

Weight lifting was a bit rough for a while, I was sick with a stomache bug, and then with the visits and stuff I just didn't make it to the gym.

I did go on saturday and picked up some stuff and put it down a bunch of times.

My food has been mostly well. I meal prepped a ton, and finally started eating it to (you know instead of shoving down fast food down my throat)

I think I am still on target to meat my weight goal.

Anyways, plane is boarding.
