Miss Marissa embraces new territory

Assassin huh. Well… it was bound to happen eventually.

 

I ended my last challenge with a powerlifting meet that I was incredibly successful at, going 8/9 and hitting PRs on my squat and deadlift (with more in the tank!) I’ve got a bit of program burnout so this challenge is dedicated to me exploring my fuckarounditis.

 

Because of the aforementioned competition and not being on a program. I’ve determined this month is a good time to cut off some of the fat I gained after the past 8 months of bulking. So I’ll be running a whole 30 this challenge (Day 1 Feb 6)

 

For those who don’t know much about me (because, Warrior). I am into lifting heavy shit, eating donuts, space and rockets, DC comics, rap music and lots of other things. Welcome! This challenge brought to you by minimally relevant DC gifs.

1) Fitness

Move your body in some way minimum 4x/week. Includes lifting, gymnastics, yoga, rings and handstands, strongman, plyo, conditioning, whatever…. Must include abs at least 2x/week, legs 1x/week and hip strengthening 2x/week.

☐☐☐☐ Move

☐☐#DoyourdamnabsTM

☐Don’t skip legs

☐☐Hip strengthening

2) Read

My stash is backing up

☐Comic a day. Total__

3) Work on dat morning routine.

Building on last challenge. Continue to improve efficiency of morning routine for me that includes breakfast, makeup and hair, other prep for the day (e.g. pack gym bag, lunch, etc) and reduces the amount of laying in bed checking instagram. Also, leaving enough time to walk to work if I need to (~20 minutes, 30 if there's lots of good pokemon on the way). The goal is to be to work by 8:30 every day. (Note, this might need to be modified if I go back to morning workouts. Mr. J starts 3rd shift tomorrow which is 9pm-7am so morning workouts would be ideal for spending time with him. We’ll see)

 

Do these things for sure:

☐Turn off phone when I go to bed and use a different alarm clock.

☐Don't turn on phone until I leave the apartment
☐Prep breakfasts

☐Pick out outfit/jewelry etc night before

 

Experiment with these things:

☐Eat first thing after I pee (instead of when I'm scrambling out the door)

☐Morning stretching routine

☐Check weather the night before to see if walking is feasible.

☐Pack lunch night before

☐Pack gym back night before AR

4) Whole 30

☐Meal plan for each week

☐☐Meal prep 2x/week

☐Don’t eat shit that’s not on the Whole 30. Period.

5) #Lifeshit to be done by end of challenge

Maybe other shit added as necessary

☐Clean Cubicle
☐Oil change in car
☐Buy more colored pencils

☐Taxes

Days 0.1 & 0.2 (Feb 6 &7)

 

1) Fitness

☐☐☐ Move

☐☐#DoyourdamnabsTM

☐Don’t skip legs

☐☐Hip strengthening

 

Gymnastics on Monday. I started with backhandspring drills, same as last week, but they were just not going great. My wrists and elbows were just not handling them well. I also tried some back handspring step-outs for the first time. Those were ok, I think will come more with practice. I was making one of two mistakes: timing my splits poorly so my foot would land way too close to my hands, or timing well but shifting my hips mid-air so I would land super crooked. I tried some standing back tuck work and those were even less successful, so then I just went and played on the tumble tramp for the rest of class. Roundoff back tucks mostly. Those were fairly successful, I think I might try on the floor next week. If I'm feeling it. Tuesday I walked into work.

 

2) Read

My stash is backing up

Comic a day. Total 2

Read Gotham Academy on both days. I think one night this week I'd like to knock out a significant chunk. Maybe tonight?

 

3) Work on dat morning routine.

 

Do these things for sure:

Turn off phone when I go to bed and use a different alarm clock.

Don't turn on phone until I leave the apartment
Prep breakfasts

Pick out outfit/jewelry etc night before

 

Experiment with these things:

☐Eat first thing after I pee (instead of when I'm scrambling out the door)

☐Morning stretching routine

☐Check weather the night before to see if walking is feasible.

☐Pack lunch night before

☐Pack gym back night before AR

 

I have been still using my phone alarm, but shutting it off immediately upon waking up. I need to just use a different alarm. Just do it girl.

I've also been mentally prepping my outfits ahead of time, but I need to actually lay them out the night before. I set an alarm on my phone for 8:30 pm to do this tonight, so let's hope I do it. Everything else has been good. And I even had time to walk in on Tuesday.

 

4) Whole 30

Meal plan for each week

☐Meal prep 2x/week

Don’t eat shit that’s not on the Whole 30. Period.

 

On the menu this week:

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Madras Chicken Salad (served over greens)

Seared porkchops, roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli (with copious amounts of olive oil)

Egg casserole

Tropical Trail mix (toasted coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds, dried tropical fruit: bananas, mangos, pineapple)

 

To be prepped tonight for meal prep 2 of the week:

shrimp pad thai

 

I think I might need another recipe because the acorn squash is gone after lunch today. And I have one porkchop left. And maybe 1/2 more servings of the chicken salad (no more greens though. Should have thought about that while I was at the store last night. D'oh.). Not sure if the pad thai will last me through Sunday. If all else fails, I have emergency meat in the freezer that I can cook up and just serve with some sweet potato and steamed veggies.

 

I did notice the coconut milk I bought had a banned ingredient (after I had my coffee, of course). But I bought a different brand last night, so I'll be good from now on. I'm not counting a Day 1 minor slip-up against me.

 

In addition to the meals, I've been eating lots of fruits and nuts and trying to drink lots of water and tea. The hunger is real so far. #carbaddict

 

5) #Lifeshit to be done by end of challenge

☐Clean Cubicle
☐Oil change in car
☐Buy more colored pencils

☐Taxes

I find an old phone (with no sim card) works really well as an alarm clock.

I do the same thing.

 

My *other* old phone handset is now my podcast player, as I couldn't be bothered to transfer all the feeds over...

2) Read

My stash is backing up

Comic a day. Total 3

Read more Gotham Academy. Nearly caught up on that and then can pick up another title I've been slacking on.

I realized I'm not going to have much free time this week/weekend with a volunteer thing all day Saturday and a concert Sunday night.

 

3) Work on dat morning routine.

 

Do these things for sure:

Turn off phone when I go to bed and use a different alarm clock.

Don't turn on phone until I leave the apartment
Prep breakfasts

Pick out outfit/jewelry etc night before

☐Eat first thing after I pee (instead of when I'm scrambling out the door)

☐Morning stretching routine

☐Check weather the night before to see if walking is feasible.

☐Pack lunch night before

☐Pack gym back night before AR

 

I turned my phone off before bed and used a different alarm clock and guess what?!?! I actually got my ass out of bed right away! Imagine that. I also had laid out my outfit last night which helped too. Got to work early and had time in the morning to do dishes and take the trash out.

 

4) Whole 30

Meal plan for each week

Meal prep 2x/week

Don’t eat shit that’s not on the Whole 30. Period.

 

Made the whole 30 approved shrimp pad thai last night. Modified slightly (used snow peas, red bell pepper and carrots. Garnished with cashews, cilantro, and scallions) Quite delicious.

 

5) #Lifeshit to be done by end of challenge
