RoachRex tries again

Recommended Posts

So here i am again. I'm not gonna waste time with a theme since it didn't add anything at all. And while I'll post updates as I can the main info will be right here in this post. So let's get to it.

 

Goals

 

Surfing 1x/wk

The weather is getting warmer and my car should be out of the shop this week. So I'm finally gonna go to the beach. Probably.

[  ] [  ] [  ] [  ]

 

Pushup Progress

I'm gonna do pushups every other day to try and reach the next level of pushups. 

Rank: Incline pushups - 7 7 7 6

[X] [X] [X] [  ] [X] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ] [  ]

 

Cook 1x/wk

I'm now eating enough and have something of an appetite. But i now need to eat healthier! So I need to start cooking!

[X] [  ] [  ] [  ]

 

Projects

I have a ton of hobbies and projects that I want to do. But often timed i just end up wasting time or goofing off. So I'm going to try and spend just 30 min a day on one of my projects.

I'm also participating in the mini-challenge and the feats are as follows:

 

Speed:  Run on the beach

Distance: Day Hike a trail (alt: walk 4 mi on beach day)

Ranger: Start a fire with no matches, lighter, or paper! 

Recovery: daily meditation and stretching.

 

Wish me luck!

Thanks!

 

So the plan is to start doing pushups and planning for the other goals now and see what happens.  I don't know if I'll actually be able to go surfing this weekend (I'll be moving back into my bro's house this weekend) but hopefully there will be enough time left.

Did baseline pushups today and added those to the 1st post.

I did 4 sets total. 3x7 1x6. I hope that by the end of this challenge I'm at least at like 15 lol I'd love to be at the next step though, knee pushups.

And I was kind of jealous of your beach, but I already live in Wa. Our woods are pretty amazing.Our house has a green belt, so we have huge cedar trees in our back yard

Thanks!  So day one! I did pushups and got some higher #s (7, 13, 11, 10) but i think the incline was higher than the one I use at work.

 

I also got outside and swam for an hour in a pool. So no surfing today unfortunately. (My roof rack is in my car which is in the shop so :T).

 

Cooking also didn't happen but my mom is going to teach me to make tacos so I'm excited for that.

 

As for projects i spent the time planning on what my first yt video should be.  Honestly idk but ive got a few ideas written down!

So my first problem is that theres just a lot i want to do lol. Diy, video game stuff, divination,  outdoorsy stuff! Etc. Its a lot. 

 

But for my first vid i have supplies to do a few things: 

1. Building a raspberry pi laptop.

2. Anything about Norse Runes.

3. Making a thing out of wood or leather

4. Filming a hike maybe? 

 

I just really dunno what direction to start with lol. Do i need a theme? Is a sorta diy sorta vlogy thing ok?  I dunno lol that's kind of my main hangup rn.

Yesterday I did pushups, 12, 9,8,7. I knew the desk at work was lower than the table at home!

 

Other than that Ive been putting together a sort of camping equipment inventory. Stuff I think I need, and stuff I have. My car is still in the shop so I'm feeling pretty limited in the projects i can work on = = (since I'm not home) but we'll  see what I can come up with today!

For my project i ended up (trying) to draw. Nothing to write home about just some sketchies trying to make a design. I think this is what I'll be working on the most since i always have my sketch book with me lol.

That sounds like a great project! How do you feel when you draw? I don't have any drawing talent, but it makes me feel more relaxed and imaginative.

 

Good work keeping up with the pushups!

 

I think a DIY video is a pretty reasonable place to start, especially if it's something interesting to you.

Honesty I just feel disappointed and frustrated, but once in a while I'll get something i can be semi proud of. And those times it feels great haha. I love making and developing characters though and i know the more i draw the better I'll get at it, its just a process and I quit a handful of years ago and have been trying to get myself back into the habit forever lol. I eventually want to make a webcomic bc i dont know how to express the same things in say a book lol. 

 

I enjoy the pushups bc its a fast inprovement, I can look at the numbers increasing each time, its a real confidence booster lol.

 

I'm getting my car back so I will probably be able to start a video this coming week or next week!

So the. Weekend mucked me up a bit. On Saturday i didn't get to go surfing bc i woke up at 11 and had to go to my mom's and help her with some stuff for a trip, after that there was a goodbye party for a coworker, we went out and had some drinks. 

 

By some I mean way too many and I'm surprised we got home ok >>

 

Sunday I had a mega hangover until about 3. Then i should have gone surfing or done my mini-challenge. But instead i made a cardboard laptop. It took me all the rest of the day to make this firehazard. I was gonna film it but i left some stuff at my mom's (fire stuff and tripod) = = i even forgot to do pushups on saturday.

 

I'll have to keep on top of things better this week. 

 

Oh on the plus side last week i cooked a side (just broccoli) and on another day i made pancakes! ovo
