SHIELD Agent Waldgeist in Hydra Prison Part 1 [#12]

Challenge #12

SHIELD Agent Waldgeist in Hydra Prison I Fresh Meat

 

Introduction:

Hi, I'm Waldgeist, a 28 year old male German. I used to be very skinnyfat, but I've packed enough muscle on in the last years to consider myself average, not really athletic and I'm still carrying around some belly, but I'm working on it.

This challenge will be the first of a three challenge cycle, connected by a consecutive Ring quest, a consecutive S&S KB and generelly being active quest and consecutive nutrition quests. None of these are new. I've been doing similar quests or specifically preparing for those for the last challenges. Hopefully in July I will begin a new cycle, probably concentrating on kettlebells and strength.

memes-assemble-the-lighter-side-of-the-a

Themewise this cycle will focus on Waldgeist, agent of SHIELD who (after the rise of Hydra) finds himself surrounded by Hydra agents and gets captured. He is sent to prison at an unknown location, where Hydra sents all sorts of troublemakers: Hydra agents who can't be controlled, SHIELD agents who might be recruited into Hydra later or prove useful in another way, low-level enhanced criminals and other scum. Master of this nightmare of a prison is a former Director of a very weird circus, whos has more than one crazy and saddistic streak. It will require some effort, but he has been in worse situations (actually not, but you gotta keep a positive attitude).

 

OVERALL GOAL: to transform my body into a solid foundation for the life I choose. More precisely: 1) get a flat enough stomach so that I can workout shirtless without feeling embarassed and at the same time reducing the health risks associated with belly fat, 2) be able to move myself around in space as I need/want to

 

 

Quest 1 - Survive the artistic compound of the Hydra prison [GMB Rings 1 : Phase A1]

Easy enough, workout three times per week. This will me my main workout, but obviously improving my muscle-to-fat-ratio with the other quests is gonna be immensely helpful with leveling up on this quest series.

 

Quest 2 - Don't forget your SHIELD training [S&S IV of XII]

This has been working good for two of three challenges. Need to get back on the track of regular training here.

 

Quest 3 - Don't fall into the Food Trap [Nutrition Part A: Snacking & IF]

Still working on two eating habits here. First is no snacking between meals and second is not eating for a period of about 24 hours twice per week. I've had mixed results last challenge, but with some more work this challenge I'm sure I'll get this habits ingrained.

A habit that is working out pretty good though, is drinking a litre of tea every day. Therefore this will no longer be part of my quest, but I will still track it.

 

Quest 4 - Prison work is supposed to break you, but it will make you stronger [Accumulating active minutes every day]

Active minutes will be defined as those over my heart rate threshold. Judging from my more active days, a baseline of 120 minutes per day should be a good goal for this challenge.

 

Quest 5 - Avoid prison food, it's supposed to make you weak [Nutrition Part B: Reduce sweets]

I've made some progress in cleaning up my diet again, but I haven't started to tackle my personal big boss aka SWEETS yet. This will change this challenge.

Quest 1 - Survive the artistic compound of the Hydra prison [GMB Rings 1 : Phase A1]

Did the above the rings day today. I was a little scared/wasn't sure I could do it, about the inverted part (even though it is the first = easiest inverted exercise  in the first week of the easy track). But  actually doing it was intensely gratifying!

I've been interested in entomophagy for a couple of years now for a different reasons (ecologcal, financial, nutritional, self-sufficiency). And today I did it (actually I did it last week, when I ordered them...) and started a mealworm farm. The store where I bought them markets them as animal feed but they also aknowledge human consumption. Just to be on the safe side though, I won't probably eat any of the ones I bought but only their descendants. With them I have total control about what they've eaten before I eat them, so there will be no bad surprises on what entered the food chain.

It really is. I also have just normal rooms space and not the perfetct 3-4 m height, but unless you're ready for muscle-ups etc (which I'm not) you can make do with way less.

So... you're going to eat meal worms? What's the benefit? (That sounds judgmental typed out, it isn't - just plain curiosity! :))

 

Actually, I expected something along the lines of "WHY, why would you do such a thing?" So, no, it doesn't sound judgmental to me.

 

They have various benefits. First of all, they are nutritious, with a lot of good quality protein and some fat plus vitamins and minerals. To put it in comparison, it is more nutritious than beef, because it has more essential amino acids (and the overall protein amount is only slightly smaller) and more vitamins, the same amount of minerals and slightly less fat (of which al lot consists of omega 6 fatty acids and also a little omega 3).

Their next advantage is that they can be farmed by pretty much anybody at home (locally produced food, safe from food scandals because you decide what to feed them etc.), whereas I wouldn't recommend keeping a cow in you room or even your backyard unless it is pretty big. Even chickens need some space, especially if you want to raise them organically and think about animal welfare. Which is not a concern with mealworms since they love to be in dark confined space with lots of other mealworms and their food, plus room temperature is pretty much exactly what the like. Another animal welfare thing is that they can be killed very humane by putting them in the freezer. They fall asleep and and die in their sleep without pain or discomfort.

Moving on to the big scale advantages! Compared to traditional livestock insect need a fraction of feed and water to produce meat. The feed-to-meat ration is 2:1 for mealworms, whereas for example for beef it is 25:1. Even more water can be saved. Plus, pretty much the whole thing can be eaten, whereas you (at least nowadays) throw away most of other livestock to produce meat (up to 60% of a cow for example). Ecologically speaking cows (or more precise cow farts) and other livestock play an important role in accelerating climat change by producing methane and other gases, whereas mealworms and other insects emit almost nothing.

That's really cool! Thanks for the information - I had no idea. Probably not going to go out and buy any myself (I'm going to use my vegetarianism as an excuse here ;)) but I think it is really cool that you are doing this. Keep us updated on how it goes!

That's some fascinating information. I'm with Asa Pond though, I won't be going out to find some myself to eat but it's always fun to learn new things! 

 

How do you eat them? Timon & Pumbaa style, are there recipes, do you eat them like a topping?

I thought I was (I'm usually only a day or two behind unless I'm to busy to watch it), but somehow I missed the Ant-Man like Inhuman who controls worms..... Wait, do you mean our favorite I'm-to-hot-to-be-killed-off-from-this-show-even-though-I'm-dead-I'll-be-back-with-an-alien-inside-me-ward?
