I’m wordy. Short version: foods - I eat them, stuffs - I do them, bamf - I’m going to be one
I have been aimlessly wandering lately when it comes to goals. I’ve been hitting the gym with the general idea that I want to be a BAMF and look good doing it.
If I focus too much on the food I become, let’s say insane, so while being lean is a goal, it’s a secondary. I keep track of what I eat and have calories goals. These two things are usually sufficient for keeping my diet clean. At anytime, feel free to keep me on my toes and ask what’s gone in my mouth lately.
That leaves me with BAMF as my primary goal. I’ve been working on a list of things I want to be able to do. It’s dynamic, will be added to and will have to be portioned into bite sized amounts, but this first page will be a good place holder for general ideas.
Things I think I should be able to do and can’t/haven’t
I have a blue belt in BJJ, and will one day get a black belt. It’s not something I can work towards right now, but is a long term goal.
Easily run a 5k.
Move around my body weight = knock out push ups, pull ups, dips
BW Bench, 1.5 BW Squat, 2BW DL
I’d like to do a 3-4 day hike encompassing kayaking and climbing in Michigan’s UP. This involves many sub goals. Such as getting more comfortable kayaking, starting to climb outdoors, being able to move at a comfortable speed with weight on my back.
Flexibility. Don’t really know how to make this into a thing yet. But for now, making it through a yoga class and doing all the moves will suffice.
Right now I’m focusing on getting my form down for lifts by doing Starting Strength, and doing am cardio to help with the general fitness/looking good naked. I’m going to start ramping up the hike prep stuff soon. I’d like to at least get a longer hike in before it snows.
