Darkfoxx 24: SSDD


darkfoxx

Recommended Posts

Since this new format has me feeling a bit like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, I'm rolling my goals over from last challenge. Mostly. Kinda? We'll see what happens -- life is expected to be bumpy this month. 

 

Goal 1: Get Back To My (Workout) Routine

 

Since I’m back to my regular schedule, I can get back to my workout routine (minus Monday Ruck Day - sorry guys, it’s too cold and dark after work for all that). 

  • Mondays: Yoga if my body is wiped from the weekend; bodyweight routine if it’s not
  • Tuesdays: BollyX if it’s offered; some sort of speed work, a treadmill ruck, or something endurance-related if it’s not
  • Wednesdays: Free day. Bodyweight, endurance or speed work - or weights
  • Thursdays: Yoga class
  • Fridays: Planned rest - Friday date nights
  • Weekends: Walk a bunch and hopefully at least once during the challenge go do something purposefully active. 
  • Weekdays: I’m liking this Darebee daily challenge thing. I’m sticking with it. 

 

 

Goal 2: Macros, Per Usual

 

Macros work for me, and I need to stick with them - even during the weekends. No more sneaking in sandwiches or nachos. Or noodles. I need to behave. 

 

Calories: 1,500 or under

Carbs: 100g or under

Fat: 100g or under

Protein: 70g minimim

 

 

Goal 3: Level Up My (Work) Life

  • Put in my 1 month notice at work  Last day at the "old job" is March 10
  • Find another job ??? Apply for immersive coding school
  • Continue re-vamping my resume & LinkedIn profile
  • Complete my CV website complete version 2 of CV site, since I hate version 1
  • Complete at least 1 more site layout I can use for my portfolio
  • Spiff my portfolio up
  • Complete the Angular JS online course I’m taking

 

Goal 4: Feed My Creativity

  • Keep up with my current knitting project
  • Keep up with my current cross-stitch project

 

Goal 5: Make My Environment Better

  • Continue minimalism track
  • Work toward getting rid of bookshelf I hate
  • Possibly re-work my entryway
  • Address the pantry that’s starting to look messy
  • Look into my DVD drive - is it really busted? 

Goal 6: Ranger Mini Challenge

 

Fire: I've been missing my HIIT videos. This week, I'll be swapping out at least 1 of my planned workouts for an HIIT video.

 

Electric: My wrists and arms have been shit lately. This mini challenge comes at a great time to focus on mobility work this week. My wrists will thank me.

 

Ground: Fiiiiiiiiiiiiine, Rurik, I'll go back to rucking early. ;p Wasn't going to make myself until the days get longer, but fiiiiiiiiiine. Expect a ruck vid this week.

 

Psychic: I've been meaning to jump on this complex gamification bandwagon for awhile now, but haven't carved the time to do the research. Do that this week 

 

 

Goal 7: Kick Kat's Ass Week 1

 

I'm participating in a pvp challenge with our very own therealkat and will be wiping the floor with her this first week ;) 

 

ADDED GOALS:

 

1. Whole30 this week. Yes, that means even this weekend during the damn UFC fight. 

2. Darebee weekly challenge on top of regular workout + Daily Dares.

OMFG I FILLED OUT MY APPLICATION FOR THE IMMERSIVE CODING SCHOOL. 

 

And now they want a freaking about me site that shows my personality. 

 

The coding part is easy - I basically knocked that out this last weekend for shits & giggles. 

 

The 'show yourself off to a committee' part: not so much. 

 

I need a better head shot. 

 

And now I'm under the gun to actually flesh out my 'about me' page and *not* sound lame. 

 

I have until Thursday.

That sounds like absolute hell. 

 

I plan on working on some of the about me stuff today/this evening - after surprise shopping for a couch because apparently my DH is 12 and can't keep himself from flopping onto the couch. Our poor IKEA couch lasted 2 years - 6 months of that with a cracked arm -- and then we changed the slipcover and it all went to hell. The cracked arm is pretty much falling off now. 

 

Asshead.

I should set a goal right now to have the about me shit up for review no later than Thursday morning.

Week 1 Day 1

 

Goal 1: Get Back To My (Workout) Routine

 

  • Monday: Daily Dare + Yoga or Bodyweight
  • Tuesday: Daily Dare + Dance Class, endurance or speed work
  • Wednesday: Daily Dare + My Choice
  • Thursday: Daily Dare + Yoga Class
  • Friday: Daily Dare + Planned Rest Day
  • Weekend: My Choice

 

 

What Did I Do Today? 

 

Daily Dare: 30 Seconds Jump Squats. EC: Non-Stop. Well, that’ll wake your body up. Done. 

 

Big Workout: Hit the gas on the Ranger Train and did a 20-minute HIIT workout. Had to scale the push-ups, but did well nonetheless (and managed to not get nauseous - win!)

 

Week 1 Only: Darebee Weekly Quest - Clear The Road (by doing dips). How Many Did I Contribute Today? 25 ass-to-ground dips off the ottoman. 

 

 

Goal 2: Macros, Per Usual

 

Breakfast: DH’s green smoothie with hemp protein + coffee with almond milk 

Lunch: Cleanout - 1/2 a bowl of paleo cheeseburger mac & 1/2 a bowl of Asiany broccoli + venison

Dinner: “Indian nachos†- good thing potatoes are now W30. I had already planned on paleo-ify-ing this recipe; making it W30-compliant wasn’t much more of a stretch. 

Snacks: Nope. Figured out I don’t actually have W30-compliant nuts at the moment, since I bought nacho cheese flavored cashews this weekend.

 

Week 1 Only: Was I Whole30 Compliant Today? Mostly. I had almond milk with my coffee because I literally forgot challenge started today. Since this was the last of my almond milk, I’m not freaking out about it. 

 

Calories: 1,111 of 1,500

Carbs: 85 of 100g 

Fat: 52 of 100g

Protein: 89 of 70g 

 

 

Goal 3: Level Up My (Work) Life

 

  • Last day at the “old job†is March 10!
  • Apply for immersive coding school
  • Continue re-vamping my resume & LinkedIn profile
  • Complete Version 2 of my CV site because I hate Version 1
  • Complete at least 1 more site layout I can use for my portfolio
  • Spiff my portfolio up

 

What Did I Work On Today?

 

Worked on my LinkedIn profile. 

 

Applied to coding school. 

 

Skipped the UI/UX talk + recruiter meet & greet I was supposed to go to. 

 

 

Goal 4: Feed My Creativity

 

  • Keep up with my current knitting project
  • Keep up with my current cross-stitch project

 

What Did I Work On Today?

 

Cross stitched at lunch and I’m about 7/10 of the way completed! 

 

Finished the cuff/leg part of my second sock. 

 

 

Goal 5: Make My Environment Better

 

  • Continue minimalism track
  • Figure out what’s going on with my DVD drive

 

What Did I Work On Today?

 

Transferred one of my DH’s guitars to the closet before it gets even more damaged, moved things around in that closet, and put a pair of boots up in a shoe box. 

 

 

Goal 6: Ranger Mini Challenge

 

2 - Hold Please: Hold Please.  

 

What Did I Work On Today? Hold Please. pleasedontbefirepleasedontbefirepleasedontbefire

 

Thank goodness I can choose! We’re fighting an ice Pokemon this week, so logically I should choose my Fire dude (Charmander? Was there a fire fox instead? I know nothing about Pokemon). 

 

So… dammit …. did my HIIT tonight. Because I didn’t want to. TWICE FOR FLINCHING. 

 

 

Goal 7: Kick Kat’s Ass 

 

I’m participating in a pvp challenge with our very own frost archer therealkat and will be wiping the floor with her this first week. 

 

PATH TO VICTORY

 

1. Whole 30 all week. Yes, that even means during the damn UFC fight this Saturday. 

 

Did I kick this goal’s ass today? Mostly, yes. 

 

Though pooooooooooooooop. I planned zero percent for this boss battle while coming up with this week’s menu, and am going to have to re-adjust the dinner that included bacon to no bacon. And it looked so good … maybe I’ll put it off to next week, when bacon sails again. 

 

It’s a damn good thing I cook (mostly) Whole30-complaint food at home. I’d be huuuuungry at lunch if I didn’t. 

 

2. Darebee my face off. Add the Darebee Weekly Challenge on top of my Daily Dares + regularly scheduled weekly workouts. 

 

 

Did I kick this goal’s ass today? Yep. Daily Dare Done. Weekly thing worked toward. Workout crushed.

ooooh that's so exciting!!! If you need any wording assistance let me know! I'm not the greatest at creative writing but I am really pretty good at professional writing. If not SUPER EXTRA GOOD LUCK SO AWESOMENESS YAY!

Also, I feel your pain with the new challenge format and the 1 legged man. But three limbs is enough to still kick butt, methinks.

Kudos to sticking to Whole30 with a UFC on the line. But more importantly, tell me we can still be friends and that you hate Nate Diaz as much as I do. And that McGregor is a delicious piece of man meat worth oggling at every turn.

 

I mean look at this. Just LOOK at this.

Admittedly, my eyes totally gloss over when the DH starts talking about fights - all I see is dollar signs rolling through his eyeballs cartoon jackpot style. 

 

I do, however, care very greatly about ogling Connor McGregor. And am hoping Misha Tate's RBF gets re-adjusted. 

 

I don't think I could pick Nick Diaz out of a lineup, but he's fighting my pretty man candy so I hates him. 

 
My plan for the fights: don't sit anywhere near the food this time, dumbass. Even if it's paleo. And I'll be bringing my own "fancy pop" (aka sparkling water with a squeeze of lime or pineapple) so I stay far away from cider.
