My parents have a hickory tree that is a Vermin Highway to their attic. They chew through wood and burrow in, then make confetti of insulation, soffit, and anything else they get their hands on. They relocated the first raccoon that they caught via humane trap. It shat and hissed and spit everywhere from attic to side door. Not a fun ride. After that, not sure what they did with 'em. Lose/lose, really.

 

They can be cute, but they can be evil, too. Using your best judgment and moving on is all you can do--you and your property are cute and worth protecting, too, after all.

An oak, in our case. Insulation confetti is a good way of describing it...

GRUB

1.0: 1586

1.1: 105g

1.2: sure

1.3: red wine, it'll have to be sunday :S

1.4: :angel:

 

Tried to eat the last My Fit Foods breakfast, but it was past its good date and my stomach knew it, so I tossed it in favor of a frozen breakfast burrito. Coconut date nut roll + 1 oz dried pineapple bits, then lunch was a protein shake w/ strawberries and coconut. Snack of chicken. Then more snacks. Another date nut coconut roll, the rest of the sugar snap peas and some curry flavored hummus. Dinner was chicken and potatoes. Felt like a single serve red wine thing tonight.

 

MOVEMENT

2.0: 

1 hr elliptical w/ gym buddy this morning. Lost track of time chatting, even.

 

2.1: N/A it is not Wednesday

 

MOBILITY

3.0: Done. I've been working calves and hamstrings pretty much daily trying to get general better flexibility there (not just for lift form abilities, but because they've always been tight). Can now put hands around feet, with slightly bent knees :)

 

ADULTING, THE GAME

4.0: Earned 11 (12 in a minute), spent like 25 (4 hours ffxiv, 1 hour Supernatural)

4.1: This week's to do list 

 - Call the place and do the retirement roll over thing, just do it <--- nope

 - Clean the microwave

Birthday gifts to myself this week: Birthday party drinks don't cost points, and nothing costs points on the actual day. Meaning I don't have to study on my birthday (and lose points for not), I can drink without worrying about it at both get togethers, and on my birthday I can watch TV and play ffxiv all day if I want.

 

1.0: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 0/1

1.1: 6/7, 6/7, 7/7, 4/7

1.3: 2/1, 1/1, 2/1, 0/1

1.4: 0/0, 0/0, 0/0, 0/0

2.0: 4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 2/4

Who does deadlifts on their birthday, anyway??? (Hint: it me)

 

Sugar is commencing right now! (Plus a sausage roll yes)

 

Belt update: Was able to bang out extra reps past the goal I set on each of the AMRAPs woooo

I felt like it might have needed to be even a little tighter, but it was getting a little awkward to breathe so I didn't attempt tightening more.

1.1: 33g

1.2: noooooooooooooooo

1.3: noooooooooooooooo

1.4: :angel:

 

Breakfast was a chocolate glazed split top buttermilk donut (my favorite), and a jumbo spicy sausage roll w/ jalapenos. That ran about 750 cals right there, and at noonish I grabbed a large Ben & Jerry's Americone Dream. So tasty. For dinner I had some of other people's cheesy fries, but ended up not eating as much of that. Drank a ton. Lost count of the rum & pineapple drinks (my go to now that I don't do soda, not even on my birthday), had two buttery nipple shots. All sugar and fat, not much protein. Feel like balls this morning and about to go get a nutritious protein-y breakfast.

 

MOVEMENT

2.0: 

Deadlift day + first use of lifting belt!

1x5 65 lbs

1x5 79 lbs

1x3 95 lbs

1x3 110.5 lbs

1x3 126.5 lbs

1x9 142 lbs <-- rep PR (Goal was 9, didn't go beyond goal, but I also lost count so this might have been 10 after all?)

1x6 150 lbs <-- rep PR +1 (Goal was 5, which would have been a rep PR also)

1x5 158 lbs  <-- rep PR +1

1x3 166 lbs <-- rep PR +1

 

Squats (also with belt)

1x5 45 lbs

1x2 95 lbs

5x3 121.5 lbs

No above and beyond today, I was starting to feel pretty wiped.

 

Leg raises

5x10 <-- still working on keeping legs straighter, but may start increasing reps soon. Legs get way bent and loosy goosy at the end.

 

2.1: N/A it is not Wednesday

 

MOBILITY

3.0: Nope, focused on ice cream and donuts and video games, gave no mind to any challenge thing other than lifting.

Well, definitely ending this challenge on a big stumbly note (part planned, though, so, not too bothersome). My challenge actually ends TODAY, so I'll wrap it up this evening. Got a couple of points to nab today to keep an even keel.

 

GRUB

1.0: ?????

1.1: 110g, probably accurate

1.2: LOLNOPE

1.3: LOLNOPE

1.4: :angel:

 

Breakfast was at Benedict's, and I had chicken apple sausage links, over easy eggs, wheat toast with a smidge of butter, and a few bites of the breakfast potatoes. Big ole meal, needed after the super light food evening and alcohol the night before. Skimped on lunch to save room for Birthday Nachos and just had a protein shake. Dinner was a big ole plate of Texas style nachos. Witness.

And then we went over to the karaoke bar, where I proceeded to drink everything and completely lost track of everything I drank. I had 3 "The Ruby" drinks, kind of a sweet cranberry vodka drink, and a Peach Tea Lemonade (hint there was no tea), 3 buttery nipple shots, maybe more?, turned a cinnamon toast crunch shot into a drink twice at least. I'm really not sure how much it was, and I have just shoved "3200" in my calorie spreadsheet as a wild-ass guess. I was nearing 1900 at the nachos.

 

MOVEMENT

2.0: 

Rest-rest day. Didn't even get a lot of steps. Wasn't very productive. Hangovers do this.

 

2.1: N/A it is not Wednesday

 

MOBILITY

3.0: No, I lost track of time playing FFXIV, then had to race out the door, wasn't home again until almost 2 am. Mr Ix bought me a Tim Tam for my birthday, which is basically a power drill massager. I'm kind of still scared of it, but might see about working it into stretching tonight.

Last day, so wrap-up to follow. Worked to get back on track after birthday shenanigans. Got my next challenge in order. Decent day :)

Note: my cat hates all toys, except for my golf ball that I roll my feet with. THAT she will bat around until it's hidden under something and I can't find it :/

 

GRUB

1.0: 1239 (appetite issues, emergency protein shake at 8 pm)

1.1: 101g

1.2: Yep

1.3: Yep

1.4: :angel:

 

Woke up too late for breakfast, ran out the door on pre-workout and ibuprofen (hangover). Picked up a couple of My Fit Foods things to tide me over til I could figure out home-cooked stuff. Cashier dude finally managed to refrain from random muscle comments. Lunch was the salsa verde pork bowl, and was still a little hungry so I had a spiced chai protein shake. Eventually chopped up a carrot and ate it raw with hummus, then for dinner I baked/burned a 4 oz salmon fillet, steamed some steamfresh veggies, and reheated the rest of the potatoes. Saw my calorie total and protein total and went oopsie, did some chores and when i could fit more food in, whipped up a strawberries & protein shake to fill in the gaps. So full, though.

 

MOVEMENT

2.0: 

Bench day!

 

Dumbbell bench for warm up

1x5 30 lbs

1x5 40 lbs

 

Bench press

1x3 46.5 lbs

1x3 54 lbs

1x3 62 lbs

1x9 70 lbs <-- rep PR +1

1x6 73.5 lbs <-- rep PR

1x3 77.5 lbs <-- rep PR

1x2 81 lbs <-- rep PR

 

 

Took video of the 70 lb set, but not the 81 lb set because I got self-conscious about video after some people strolled in.

 

OHP

1x2 45 lbs

8x3 53 lbs

Really tough

 

Seated cable rows

5x12 60 lbs <-- woot finally hit 12 reps across all sets \o/ 

 

Dumbbell pec flies

3x10 20 lbs (10 each hand)

 

Skullcrushers

3x12 24 lbs

Moving these to bench day

 

2.1: N/A it is not Wednesday

 

MOBILITY

3.0: Done. Did a fair amount while watching a sql video, so studying and mobility happened at the same time. #efficiencyy'all

 

ADULTING, THE GAME

4.0: Earned 14, spent 15, might spend more, but doesn't matter, I have a surplus of points this time, can't spend them all

4.1: This week's to do list 

 - Call the place and do the retirement roll over thing, just do it <--- nope

 - Clean the microwave

got the microwave done at least, no point though.

I'm bad at reading non-Kindle books now, and have made laughable progress on Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. The show was really good though~

 

WEEK 4 & CHALLENGE WRAP UP

 

Overall, pretty good! Mostly this format is working, have tweaked it a bit for next time. A little disappointed I weaseled out of doing the retirement roll over thing, but I'm super determined to get that really going this coming week and get it done.

 

1.0: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 1/1

1.1: 6/7, 6/7, 7/7, 6/7

1.2: 5/4, 4/4, 3/4, 4/4

1.3: 2/1, 1/1, 2/1, 1/1

1.4: 0/0, 0/0, 0/0, 0/0

2.0: 4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 4/4

2.1: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 1/1

3.0: 6/7, 5/7, 5/7, 5/7

4.1: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 0/1

Positive point balance

 

Week 4 saw a fail on 4.1 and a B on 3.0, so maybe a B overall, A- at best. Really still not bad considering I ignored everything for two days to birthday.

Probably an A- overall. I still consistently don't hit the sixth day with stretching, but I didn't have trouble with much else.

The points are taking a break now, they might come back someday in some really simplified version, but I'm over this method for now.

 

Squat +5.5

Deadlift: +5

Bench: +2.5

OHP: +.5 <--huh, I guess it moved a little bit after all

 

Measurements tomorrow, but they're token because shark week, sodium, booze binging, all will make it inflated right now. So they're kind of irrelevant at the moment for the purposes of everything.

 

Average intake over challenge: 1768

What FitBit thinks I burned, on average: 1612 <-- I'm FASCINATED as to how this is really close to my actual spreadsheet data, considering that it regularly overestimates calories from random walking in the day (I'm guessing its inability to accurately project calories needed for recovery balances it out in my case, or something, but it's probably fairly rare that it's right for me, because it hasn't been in the past.)

Average weight: 107.8

Start weight: 107.6

End weight: 109.6 (see? irrelevant right now ><;;;)

 

New challenge here:
