    Annnnnything??? But seriously. Is there a detailed job description? I want to do this right.
  4. YEEE! Hypertrophy!!! THAT is very neat. It's old as heck and the scale isn't very clear or well defined, the athletes are bizarrely lit and greased up, some of the poses are strange, and I don't think they should have listed weight in general... BUT I still always love the bodies of different elite athletes spread. It's just cool that so bodies can be fit in so many different ways.

    Great goals! Keeping things simple is usually best when trying to get back your consistency . I'm so behind on my anime...I haven't watched Soul Eater or My Hero, but both of the characters you mentioned seem like badasses! And you're gonna be in Dallas??? hmmmm...I know we have plans Saturday, but maybe we can work something out and meet-up. Let's pin this for a later discussion . Wolf
  6. Oh yeah. I am for sure in between 20 and 30. Probably.

    I figured to get my writing gear lubricated and purring like a panther, I needed to pay more attention to you these next 4 weeks. Your stories have always been beautifully written and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store Wolf

    If you get a little wonky with your form, totally possible. My teammate used to do it.

    I did not know this!! Drizzt is one of my all time favorite book characters. I've only read the Dark Elf Trilogy, but I did so....like, 15-16 years ago. I consumed all three books in like 2 weeks. I always tell myself I will re-read those one day I think you should start sharing...but that's just my personal opinion. I would love to read some of your creative endeavors Following along because I miss your snarky intelligence and have sucked bunghole being a supportive friend as of late. Oh, and just because I can - Wolf
  10. After much reasoning with him he now agrees it was probably a dream because I argued he has known me for 15 years and not only have I never done that before, it doesn't even remotely sound like something I, or anyone else for that matter, would ever do.

    Urgh. Sorry about your truck. Times like this it's not really about what was or wasn't taken, it's more the LOW DOWN DIRTY PUNKS being all up in yo stuff.

    Wait, you want to toe shoot to the high bar and then do an uprise on the back swing? Is that even possible? Seems like you would need a massive amount of rotation (and height!) out of the toe shoot to generate the needed momentum.

    Challenge #2 - It's on!

    I just completed my first 4-week challenge last month, so time to move on to #2! Some things from last challenge worked out, and some things did not, so I'm going to change up my goals a little bit. Challenge Goals: 1) Get down to 130 lbs. I'm currently at 134 (the lowest I've been able to get down to and maintain since I had my kids 2 years ago), so 4 pounds in 4 weeks should be doable. 2) Release my latest book (the one I aaaalmost finished during the last challenge) and write at least 50% (about 30k words) of my next one - July is CampNano month, so hopefully this will keep my wordcount on track! I'll complete these goals by: 1) Workout 2x a week - I had trouble with this last month, but am determined to get it in this time around! 2) Eat 'real food' at least 5/7 days a week with batch cooking! - I learned last month that if I do not have ready-made healthy food to grab quickly, I tend to reach for the snack closet when thing get hectic (and with 2 young kids, they get hectic quite often!) 3) Continue intermittent fasting, which has been going pretty well for the last month, and has definitely helped to limit the number of calories I eat a day. 4) Write 8k words a week on my new novel (book#2), while editing my one from last month (book#1) for release on July 7th. Between working out 2x a week, batch cooking healthy food, and intermittent fasting, I am hopeful that I will make my 130 mark : ) Current weight: 134 Current word count: 0

    Week 0 Day 2 Foundation: Slept pretty good. Or if not good, at least responsibly. Still tired, but that should be unsurprising with my current sleep debt. (19 hours. I've knocked an hour off.) Water/Now: Handled something for work that we all forgot about yesterday. Mottainai: Rounding up some green onions and herbs for the work space farm.

    Day 0.1 I went to gymnastics practice last night and just felt OFF the whole time. I started on uneven bars and actually kind of figured out how to do the underswing into the uprise I was talking about last week. It MAY be crucial for my bars routine next season unless I can get good enough at toe shoots to high bar that I can just do the skill directly out of them instead of needing to kip first (stretch dreams!). For context, this transition between the two bars is the skill I've been working on. I would want to swing hard out of it and then backwards to come up with my hips on the bar (uprise) for the COOLEST possible iteration of this routine, haha. We got lots of time before the season starts, so I'll just keep chipping away. I still felt off after bars, so I did some back tumbling (just layouts really). I also worked on my standing side aerial cartwheels because I have a tendency to chicken out and do a little hop/hurdle into it instead of just doing it from a stand, which is not ideal for trying to move the skill to say... the balance beam. I finished up with a few front handsprings on the low beam, but was wiped out. Instead of the usual team taco night, we went to an industry night thing that was tiki drinks served in fruit (pineapples, watermelon, grapefruit) and free bao. We stayed way later than I want to and I was super beat. Lifting: 0/3 Shenanigans: 0/1 Writing: 0/2

    Whelp, the challenge is over and I haven't quite met my goals, though I feel like I have had some improvements. This past week I've been really sick - I must have caught what my kids had 2 weeks ago - so no workouts were done. However, I did manage some batch cooking, so my diet didn't go completely to hell and I kept my weight steady at 134, so not bad. I am really struggling with the pullups, though not getting my workouts in every week definitely contributed to that. I'll get there, though. I just have to keep working on it. I am almost finished my book, though! Writing was one of the few things I've been able to do while sick last week, so I got plenty of that in! Release date will be a little later than I had hoped, but only by a week, so not terrible. I am just pretty dang happy to have kept my weight at 134. I started this challenge at 136, but my usual weight is 138, and anytime I lose any weight, I always rebound right back to 138 after a few weeks, so the fact that I have been staying at 134 for the past few weeks is encouraging. It means I'll have a new starting weight for beginning the next challenge and if all goes well, maybe I'll come out of that with an even lower starting weight. Small wins I think I will focus on the batch cooking and keeping my diet steady until it just becomes a habit, then I will start back in on my pullup goals. All in all, not bad for my first challenge, and I am getting excited for the next one! Current Weight: 134 Current Pullups: 1

    Seabright's 2019 Battle Log of Awesomeness

    Tue, June 25 Eating Breakfast - veggie omelet with tons of spinach, and 2 strips bacon, and 1 pork, 1 turkey, and 1 vegan sausage. The breakfast guy went crazy on me. ;-) Exercise Meditation - 11 mins in front of the fireplace, first thing. Yoga - cow-cats, twists, couches, and some stuff to loosen and relax my upper back and shoulders. Taking time Bravery On deck: Make Plan A really crisp. Name names. Turn it into a clear roadmap. And find a way to be vulnerable while I'm at it. Notice something beautiful SUCH a beautiful morning! Walked to the cafe in Building 6 in the cool of the day. Lovely. General thoughts I'm having today: I think I need a REAL vacation. I'm taking a few days off next week, but we're still afraid to go anywhere. I'd love to find a way to do something big again --- maybe not Tanzania, but, say, Glacier or Yellowstone. It could be next year. In the meantime, I think i need to treat next week as if we were from out of town, and we're going to do groovy stuff nearby. I had been planning on building my epic new garden bed with the charming dry-stacked stone wall, but we won't be ready to start until the end of July. Just booked a trip on the local chartered catamaran for Tuesday afternoon, so that's one thing. Maybe we can plan a couple of bigger hikes. I'd love to try the Waterfall-Mesa loop trail in Carmel Valley. Fall Creek has good hiking, too, and we've never been there. Go to the movies? Check out the arboretum? Hmmmm. Planning! I love planning!

    Thanks! I owe you and the other cool people who follow me much of the same. * Monday went great. Pretty much everything went right that I needed it to. I ran out of meds on Saturday, was out on Sunday, but was able to pick some up on Monday. Noticed that they gave me actual synthroid this time versus the generic and I'm not sure if I've just placebo'd myself or what but I feel different on the name brand stuff. Better. A quick search seems to indicate that there's some controversy over the effectiveness of the name brand stuff versus the generic, although I don't want to put numbers to it. Anyway. Got my meds and feel better, which is good. Um. Let's see. Gaming was good. We have two GMs for Harnmaster right now and I got to play the bard game yesterday. We spent the whole night laughing. It was good stuff. Afterward I went and did the abbreviated strength routine and this time it was short. Very short, which was quite in keeping with what I'd wanted out of it. Managed to superset everything and still managed my shadowboxing. Did KB snatches as a finisher with the 16 and managed 100 in five minutes, and that was quite enough for me. Today and tomorrow should both be rest days; I want to yoga but I'm not sure how it's gonna play out. Pretty sure I can get it tonight, but I generally don't work out after drinking and that's pretty much a thing I do on Wednesdays now. Either way, a restful couple of days will be nice.
  25. Body fat % is kind of a mystery to me. According to the various illustrated charts/picture samples, I could fall anywhere between 18% to 30% depending on which body part I reference. We have 2 smart scales in our house, and they don't even agree (one shows 22% and one shows 26%). I guess some things are just a mystery
