Recommended Posts

I have been slowly increasing my physical activities throughout this year and I am ready to kick it up another notch!

 

This year I have successfully completed three challenges and I am ready for a 4th.  
Last challenge I went through all of the reading material in the Nerd Fitness Academy and now I am ready to apply it. 

I am hoping to weigh between 224-226 pounds at the end of this challenge.

Workout wise I am on good track for the week... I attempted close grip pushups which ended up being a lot more difficult than I expected.  if anyone has recommendations for building into those that would be great. 

 

I did end up going out to Chinese food with a friend for lunch today, so I might have to use one of my flex days this week.

Quick Goal recap for last week:

#1: Exercise: 5/5 Introduced the beginner bodyweight workout... 1st one kicked my butt, but the second one was much easier. 

#2: Diet: 4/5: This should be completed today... I did end up using one of my flex days to.

#3: Cut back on booze: 5/5 

#4: Bass Practice: 3/4  Will be completing this today. 

 

Adventure 1:

Since we are here to be adventurers I thought I should share my adventure from Yesterday.  

A couple of friends and I hiked up to Community Caves which I had never been too.   It was really cool, fairly steep incline with some loose rocks, but definitely worth it.  

Round trip was only about an hour. 

Then we decided to play tourist and went for a drive through the hills. Checked out a couple of nearby water falls and grabbed lunch. 

It was a lot of fun!

Just stunningly beautiful!

And that's only an hour away?!?

Can we all come across and camp out? :D

 

Haha, It's actually only about 15mins from my house... From the start of the trail it was about a hour round trip.  

Come visit, it's beautiful and you can see Mt. Rushmore while you are here. 

 

 

Jealous of your terrain ... northern Indiana has, like ... a hill. 

 

90% of South Dakota is flat farm / ranch land... I live in the awesome 10% that is not.  I wouldn't be surprised if there is 100 trails with 2 hours of my house. 

More motivation to get fit!

Its kind of funny, I am probably the only South Dakota Nerd Fitness member.

That means I get to have Nerd Fitness meet ups all the time!

 

Quick Goal recap:

#1: Exercise: 3/5  | Really felt it this morning.  Wasn't sure if I would make it all the way through. 

#2: Diet: 3/5 | Rocking it

#3: Cut back on booze: 3/5 |  So far so good
#4: Bass Practice: 1/4  |  Funny timing, but some old bandmates want to jam this Friday.   Glad I decided to brush some of the dust off. 

 

The Adventures Continue. 

Weather Permitting this Sunday I am planing another adventure.  

Hiking Crow Peak... I have done this one before, but have a couple of friends who haven't.  If the weather does not comply, Boardgames!

Still there?

Haha,  I am... although last week didn't go so well.  

Had a crazy work project come up, so I ended up not cooking paleo (tried to eat healthy otherwise), and I didn't have time to get my bass practice in.
