Yo Joe! Tanktimus Preps for Camp with G.I. Joe


Recommended Posts

Last challenge I defeated the Decepticons (and started dating my girlfriend, hereinafter mi novia). When I was a child, for two whole years the Transformers came on at 4pm. G.I.Joe came on at 4:30. I won’t be using bonus points like I did last challenge, but I will change the number of allowable variances per week on food down to two. This will be my final challenge this year before CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMP which will be during week zero of the next challenge.

 

Gung Ho: Gung Ho was one of the strongest Joes, not surprising since he was a U.S. Marine. To be strong like Gung Ho I will get 10 lift days in during the challenge.

Scarlett: None of the Joes were particularly fast, but Scarlett was always quick on her feet and defeated Cobra by having faster moves than any of them. To be fast like Scarlett I will get in ten run days.

Roadblock: Roadblock could also have been the model for the strength goal, but he was a gourmet chef so I had to pick him for the food goal. As I mentioned above, last challenge I had a bonus goal of only using two variances per week and eating paleo the rest of the time. I was successful, and now I have set two variances per week as the normal goal. Mi novia is on board with helping me on the food goal, and we coordinate to use my variances.

Duke: I return to using the leader of the good guys for the Domestic Rangering goal. Like most cartoons, the leader was my favorite character. To lead like Duke I will clean bathroom, kitchen, mop, vacuum, take out trash, do laundry 1x per week.

Lady Jaye: Lady Jaye was agile, doing all kinds of flips and rolls, and she had that nifty quiver of specialty Javelins. To be agile like Lady Jaye I will get any combination of Foam Rolling and an NF mobility Session for a total of 3 times a week.

Non Goal Related but necessary before Camp:

  • Get Thor Costume
  • Get Nerf Mjollnr to be Mr. Helpy
  • Get stuff for Glow Party
  • Decide whether or not I need new luggage and if so get som

And before someone beats me to the punch, some of the PSA parodies.

Mad jelly growing up with kids who had a big collection of GI Joe toys and watched the show!  Okay.  Ya.  I grew up in farmland kind of nowhere and had lots of cool toys.  TV was limited to a few channels we could pick up.

 

Given that I have been following programs coming out of the Evil Eastern Empire - does that make me one of the COBRA bad guys?

No, there were episodes where they went out of their way to make the Soviets seem like a neutral 3rd party, this show came out in the time of Glasnost and perestroika after all.

You'll make it at some point.

 

Today is a good day. Got lift day in, squats and bench. This is the last week before I test my 1RM's next week. I'm contemplating deloading all four lifts depending on how testing week goes. Lunch was broccoli, walnut and raisin salad, topped with sauteed honey-mustard chicken and bacon.

Remember Kids, to be verbs in Koine Greek take a definite article in the Nominative Case without a definite article. Know you know, and knowing is half the battle.

This one is the one i recall best. It has been quite some time since i have seen any of the episodes! Somehow sticking in the back of my head is that i always admired cobra...

Destro was one of the only Cobra members I liked. He had some semblance of a sense of honor, and was always good for a Cobra Commander insult.
