I'm going to continue to post my workouts in my BATTLE LOG but might x-post here. I might also post gymnastics fun here, because who doesn’t want to learn about cool shit that I’m doing in gymnastics.

 

1)            HEAL / Do less

I have an owie somewhere in the general region of my left hip flexor. It’s been bothering me, I have some stretches and things to do. My friend is massage therapist who is going to try to help me diagnose it. If not, I’m going to see a doctor. To prevent other injuries from happening and to help this one heal, I’m going to

·         Do my prescribed stretches/therapy 5x/week.

·         Foam roll 5x/week

·         Rest if I need to

·         Heat/ice if I need to

 

This is conveniently timed (I guess?) with my program. As my workout starting tomorrow eliminates all assistance work and is solely big 3! (As I’m running up a peaking program, aka do less)

 

2) GET BIG

This again a rollover goal from last challenge, modified slightly. I've started taking creatine, it’s pretty much habit now. But I’m having issues with it, mainly digestion and headaches. This leads me to believe I’m not drinking as much water as I should be. I’ve ordered a half gallon water bottle that should arrive at some point soon. The goal is to drink at MINIMUM the half gallon of straight up water a day, in addition to any teas, coffees, diet sodas, etc I have throughout the day.

 

Take creatine daily. At least half a scoop, more if I can tolerate it. Drink half gallon of water daily to ensure maximum swoleness.

 

3)    GET FAT

My nutrition is still all over the place. If you’ve been following me, you know that this is a thing I've been struggling with.

My challenge is finding BALANCE between tracking compulsively, yet still eating enough to fuel my body and my workouts. If I don't track, I don't eat enough or eat in proper ratios. Especially fat, I am ALWAYS low on fat, it's just so much easier to eat proteins and carbs! I also binge eat, so my calories will vary from 1400- 3100 over the course of a week; which is unhealthy, inconsistent and unsustainable!

Last challenge the goal was to focus on the weekend, and I didn’t find any real improvement by focusing on that. This challenge the focus will be meal prep and trying to get back to a carb cycling type of diet.

Meal prep: Ensure I always have protein sources prepped and available for lunches and dinners (aka meat). 1-2x/week prepping should be sufficient.

Do that carb cycling thing again: Track my macros. Aim for P/F/C = >135/~70/[<100/~180/~250] based on that day’s activity level (rest=low, gymnastics or cardio=medium, lifting=high). Doesn’t have to be perfect, just try. The part I will score is on the low carb days: all carbs should be coming from fruits, veggies, beans, etc aka all NATURAL sources. No breads, cookies, ice cream, pop tarts, cereal or other junk on low days! I’m still going to allow them on medium and high days, as I suck at going cold turkey and think that I still need some leeway there.

 

Life Goals for this year will be COMPOUNDING as appropriate. The idea is to produce HABITS!

 

1) Don't be a hoodrat (challenge 1)

Look fabulous. Take selfies. Post here for everyone's pleasure.

 

2) Don't get too fat (challenge 2)

Crushed this goal last time at 1x/week so I’m going to up it!

Walk or bike to work. 2x/week minimum. 

Note: This goal is highly dependant on the progress of my hip. If I am having hip issues, I will nix it.

 

3) Read (challenge 3)

Last challenge I did really well with reading more. I didn’t finish the books like I intended to, but I read more than I was. This is good.

Continue reading at least 3x/week.

 

4)    Don’t be a hermit (challenge 4)

Weekends I have a terrible habit of laying on the couch watching Netflix and doing housework all weekend. It’s rare if I see sunshine. I need to do SOMETHING that involves leaving my apartment on non-work days. Go to the store, go on a date with Mr. J, go to the gym, nerd meetup for tea, or just go for a walk or bike ride. Just something so I don’t fall into that deep red glow of Netflix that is so comforting.

Leave my apartment on non-work days.

 

Other things I’d like to accomplish, but aren’t necessarily goals

  • Finish my cosplay by this weekend
  • Buy presents for my cousins for next weekend.
  • Sell things that need to go
  • Set the April budget (sooner than later)

No -.-

He has been at our roleplay convention in cologne last year, but I missed it somehow.

Just watched some training videos at YouTube and got a fitnessnerd boner from it :D Hell, this physique...that iceland monster is a machine!

Didn´t he visit a sick child at hospital painted green as hulk?

Its amazing how much of a difference there is between lifting for strength (Hafthór) and lifting for size(Lou Ferrigno, about 100 pounds lighter, and not nearly as strong as the Mountain:

The 2 are one in the same my friend. You can't build good musculature without also being strong. There's not much difference between them. Alter their training and diet a touch and they'd reverse.
