2019 Goals?

Post by syaigh » Tue Jun 25, 2019 1:34 am

Uh, now that we are halfway through the year . . .

Goals:
1. Maintain the leanness I fought to obtain over the last year and a half.
2. Make a good showing at masters worlds HG.
3. Get back to riding more regularly than once a week.

Challenges:
1. Extra kid in the house at the very least part time, at the very most full custody (cousin from abusive household).
2. 3 teenagers getting more teenagery, one graduating high school this year and having to focus on college applications.
3. Sick pupper. :(

I know I posted no more drunk driving or video games (no dui's or crashes, no games for a couple months) in the other thread.

We're at the half-way mark though, so maybe a couple more would work.

I'd like to get my first tube surfing. I'm at 19 years of surfing and zero of them. That said I want to do it safely. Most of the advice is just to chuck yourself into low-percentage scenarios and take your beatings until you get lucky.

I'd like to get back to more thoughtful exercise programming. I have, in my not so humble opinion, a kick-ass program I'm following. But there is a total lack of rep variance, exercise rotation, etc. I just keep doing sets of dumbbell calf raises for example every leg day, usually 15-20 reps. For months. In the past I rotated every 2-3 weeks my reps, order, exercises, etc. And that shit worked.

Blue belt. Even though it doesn't look very realistic right now. I am an old motherfucked and as the result a slow learner. But fuck, I still like BJJ a lot.

Nice work boss. Not bad after a layoff.

Having done little real training this year, bar a once a week BJJ hammering and an ocean swim or road cycle, my goal is to finish erecting (yes erecting) my awesome garage gym and use it mercilessly to drag my aging arse out of mild but chronic depression. Whilst simultaneously buldimg my practice to a point where it actually pays me a livable wage.

Little history. At the end of last July, I nearly died at one of my events. I had eaten and lifted myself to over 300 pounds. I was strong, but fragile as I kept injuring my hamstrings and I justified eating and lifting to recover. so I made a life change. Did whole 30 for a month - became a moody bitch. Did a second month - got less bitchy. Found a diet plan that worked. I managed to get as low of 262 and that was around late March. Weight has slowly crept up to mid to high 260s; but I have gotten myself back into sustainability.

My goal is to continue with sustained weight loss and this life change/diet plan. Eventually I want to get under 250 pounds. That was how much I weighed when I finished my MBA. Started college at age 18 at 230. Was born a giant bald troll doll, will likely die as one too.

Don't give a shit about numbers in the gym anymore; but I still love lifting.
don't give a shit how I perform in my sport anymore; but I still love training.
Just want to be as pain free as I can as I move along the fifth decade.
The cool thing about training is that becoming more sexy is just a side effect........
