My last challenge was kind of a disaster, but as it was said in Batman Begins, "Why do we fall?" 




I think this challenge is going to be more focused on getting into a groove. I also think that I wasn't really being active on this forum and utilizing the community for support.  The idea of an alternative meal prep was also pretty bad because I underestimated my laziness.  So anyway, here are my new goals:


Fitness Goals

1. Improve Jiu-Jitsu.

Jiu-Jitsu has been described as being a marathon, not a sprint. Taking this into account, I've decided to set my goal to a minimum of two classes a week.  I feel that two is good for easing back into things after almost a month of being out of the gym.  Three would give me growth.  Anything more would be extra credit. So, I plan to improve Jiu-Jitsu by increasing my attendance. 


A - >3 Classes/Week

B - 3 Classes/Week

C - 2 Classes/Week


2. Run a 10 minute mile. 

I have never really been into running. Throughout school I was considered fast despite the fact that I never finished a mile in under 30 minutes. I did slack and end up walking for the most part, but I want to add running into my non-existent fitness regimen.  So, I plan to use the Zombies Run! App and go for runs at the same frequency of attending Jiu-Jitsu classes with the addition that I'll run a mile at the end of the week to check my progress.  Grading will be based on my timed runs. 


A - > 10 Min. Mile

B - 10 Min. Mile

C - 10:01 - 11 Minute Mile



1. Meal Prep

The last challenge, I planned to prep all my food and cook my food the day I eat it.  I have the time, but I'm also lazy.  So, I'm going back to meal prepping the more traditional way and cook everything on Sunday for the week.  I'll cook meals taking into account that I'm probably going to eat out once during the week and once on the weekend.  While I won't put any restrictions on what I'm going to eat when I go out, I won't call them cheat meals as I'd still like to try to get a health-ish option. 


Life Goal

1. Get a job. 

I was able to pass the tests to get my A+ Certification. So, I'm going to try to get a job in everything I qualify for.  Accounting as well as IT.  So I plan to put in two applications each day. Hopefully something sticks because I would like to feel less like a free loader when my wife has to go to work and I'm unemployed.

Okay, so I'm somewhat set up for success. I have all my meals prepped. I do plan on picking up some steaks and chili from the butcher shop later in the week. This week we have Turkey meatloaf, paella made with brown rice, and chicken pad Thai with whole wheat noodles. Jiu Jitsu starts at 6AM, and it's 12:21 AM right now. If I don't go this morning, I'll definitely hit the noon class.
