CHALLENGE INSPIRATIONLike a battered, war-weary veteran, I return to the Rangers once more.

Lately it’s been everything I can do to even attend regular classes and keep up with work week meal prep, otherwise I’ve been scarfing down a lot of garbage and either going wildly over or vastly under my recommended macros.  My life has been chaos, in a constant state of upheaval, for weeks now.  Fate is inexorable, but a man has control over his own actions if nothing else.

Enough is enough.  The CrossFit Games Open is coming in February and I haven’t had a ring muscle-up in months… that’s unacceptable.  I need to get my weight down a bit to reclaim my gymnastic abilities, and I need to start pulling my weight on the forums.  With that in mind, you’re all my Accountibilibuddies this challenge!

Yeah. Basically the point I'm standing behind (except I think you said it more elegantly than 'shit happens, but I'm gonna do what I do anyway').

"Do your thang, dawg" is the 'Murrrican version of this.

Following along for awesome theme!

Let the Viking awesomeness commence!

(And while our standards of reference are wildly different, I am so feeling you on the upheaval and lack of goal meeting... It's time to pull up them socks, my friend)

5 Crossfit WODs a week... most impressive. You know I'll be following and having returned to CF myself, it's Open prep season indeed. Ring MU race, initiate!

Seriously, welcome back. Hope you enjoyed your time with the warriors!

The universe sees fit to hand us whatever blessings please them most; what ultimately matters is what we do with these gifts while we're here.

 

I like to think I use my wordsmithery to inspire, at least occasionally.

Following along for a secondhand hit of xfit koolaide.

 

Can't find any appropro Viking CrossFit images so here's Outlander's Sam Heughan doing some promotional lifting for some mag whose name I cannot recall...

Pull on your chainmail hauberk, grab your battle axe, and go find some skulls to crush!

I would love to see that welcome back speech, but #MomoaMonday is actually a #MomoaEveryday mentality.  I just try to share the love with my other inspirations/eye candy like #WeidaWednesday and #SackhoffSunday.  Might need to brainstorm a few others.  ;)

 

The time went with the Warriors was indeed time well spent.  Thanks!

Forgot to mention/answer this part. I'm getting my happy ass back in the gym!  It's been too damn long since I've picked shit up and put shit down.  So that's happening.  

 

I don't know about crushing anything, but stopping the suckage counts too, right? :P
