Tabula Rasa is Fashionably Late


Tabula Rasa

Recommended Posts

Greetings, fellow rangers.

 

Please, ignore the fact that I am 10 days late for this challenge. I was just going to wait for the next one, but yeah. Screw that.

 

I am a 25 year old living in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, who actually has this whole exercising/healthy living thing down. I Crossfit 4-5x/week, I don't eat like an idiot 80% of the time, I enjoy martial arts, meditation and I own a pair of Kettlebells for those times I am bored at home doing nothing. I am 5'2'' and currently weight 55kgs (110lbs).

 

I decided to give NF challenges another chance because I absolutely suck at setting goals for myself if there is no accountability involved.

 

So, for this challenge, my main goal is to do a proper push up. Yeah. As a newbie crossfit addicted, I am learning to do all these awesome things with my body (I can squat 120lbs, deadlift 160lbs and swing a 20kgs kettlebell with awesome form and a smile on my face), but I can't still do a decent, honest to God, push up.

 

With that in mind, here are my quests for this challenge:

 

Strenght Quest
- Master the push ups by training them EVERYDAY. 5 sets of 5 reps, following the Convict Conditioning progression. 

 

Dexterity Quest
- Stretch my hamstrings EVERYDAY for at least 10min. 
- NF Yoga 3x/week.

 

Constitution Quest
- Aim for 1800-2200 calories a day.
- Eat at least 110g of protein everyday.

 

Inteligence Quest
- Finish reading the book Getting Things Done by David Allen.

 

Wisdom Quest
- Meditate everyday for at least 10 minutes.

 

Charisma Quest
- Reach out to a different friend/acquaintance everyday. It can be via Facebook, e-mail, SMS, whatever.

I will be here for moral support. I myself am moving this week and then will get back to work on the simple and sinister kettlebell plan. The twist is that I alternate days between swings and snatches. My hamstrings are not in good shape and I am working on getting those better with ten minutes of yoga post workout.
