We Fear Change: Tanktimus Tries Some New Goals


Recommended Posts

 

After over a year with the same goals, it’s time to change things up. For most of Zero Week I’ll be gone for CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMP! So I might change things some when I return. One of the biggest changes is I’m not going to run anymore. I’ve been slowly transitioning from running to walking anyway, so I’m just gonna run with it, or not, so to speak. I’m also lowering the number of lift days from 10 to 8 and upping the Yoga. It will still work out to 20 workouts in a 4 week cycle (before it was 10 lift days and 10 rund days). Domestic Rangering and Eating will stay the same. I’ve also bid farwell to the progress bars. They aren’t supported anymore, and until they are it’s time for something new. I will still keep track of my goals in the signature, however.

 

Strength: 8 lift days. Pretty straightforward here. I will do Bench and Squat on Mondays and Deadlift and OverHead Press on Wedensdays. I had been doing Deadlift and bench on Fridays without the last set, but with ten lift days that worked out to every other Friday anyway. I have also subbed bodyweight routines or yoga on Fridays because I can do them from home. Now that I have Mi Novia, I want to be done with working out on Fridays by the time she’s free. I’m really not giving up that much here.

 

Mobility: 8 NF Yoga workouts. I’ll do one session each of Water A and B, Two Sessions Each of Fire A and B, and one Session of Star A (attempted) and Yin. I’ve noticed it takes a little longer to recover from lift days, both I think as a result of being 35 and of starting to lift heavier. It was getting to the point where my gainz were stealing my cardio (I couldn’t run as much after a heavy lifting day). This should bring about better recovery and more flexibility, which is always important when working out to prevent injury. Likely days for Yoga will be Tuesday and Friday.

 

Walking: While I haven’t run much, walking is still enjoyable. I have great places to walk, so it’s not hard to get out and do. There will be four walking days, a 2 mile, 3 mile, 3 mile and 4 mile walk are the goals. Depending on how that goes I’ll adjust for next challenge. I’ll foam roll on walking days. Thursdays will likely be the day I walk.

 

Domestic Rangering: Still the goal here to do laundry, clean bathroom and kitchen and mop and vacuum once per week.

 

Eating: I will cook paleo and only allow myself two variances per week. This seems to be working, the trick is not to use a variance to go crazy. (Will start tracking on Monday of week 1, Sunday I'll be flying back home and don't want to have to worry about Paleo in the airports.

 

Here’s what I’ll use in the signature instead of progress bars.

Strength: 8 Lift Days

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

 

Mobility: 8 Yoga Days

Water A | Water B | Fire A | Fire A | Fire B | Fire B | Star A | Yin

 

Walking: 4 Walk Days

2 Miles | 3 Miles | 3 Miles | 4 Miles

 

Domestic Rangering: Laundry, Mop, Vacuum, Bathroom, Kitchen 1x Week

LMVBK | LMVBK | LMVBK | LMVBK

 

Eating: Cook Paleo with only two variances per week

This may well be the first and last time I am fully caught up! But following because, yet again, your goals look amazing, Tank. I may also steal borrow your Domestic Rangering goal. Though with two laundry days because one never seems to be enough.... :D

One of the benefits of not having a w/d hookup in the apartment is that I can do all my laundry in one fell swoop at the apartment laundry facility, both by using multiple machines and by stuffing them more fully than I would machines I was responsible for replacing.

Hahahaha.  I meant to post the Changes song from Brady Bunch.  Must have dragged over the ad at the beginning by accident.  My apologies.

What I hate is getting all the laundry done, then finding one dirty sock that was missed. -_-

 

This happens to me far too often. I have been known to have a sock sitting alone in a drawer for weeks until its partner is found and makes it through the wash...

We have a special sock shoe box where lonely socks live until their life partner is found. Sometimes they sit there for months, as my son has this weird habit of hiding his socks under his mattress.
