Week 11 of 12: Well, That One Got Nuked

Nuked Week
27 May

Last Updated on May 27, 2024 by Michael Brockbank

In case you can’t tell from the title, things haven’t been going swimmingly for this challenge. Then again, none of the past challenges have worked out as intended either. But despite the issues I face, I’m still striving for improvement.

I’m constantly bouncing between 233 and 237, and I just can’t seem to get my head in the game. I’m constantly under an immense amount of stress and can’t or won’t do anything about most of it.

It’s like I’m constantly throwing myself up against a brick wall hoping that this time, I’ll smash through it like the Kool-Aid Man. The problem is that big bastard must be made of tempered, bullet-proof glass. I keep getting all these fractures and scuffs.

I haven’t had a chance to set up the whiteboard yet, but I am heading over to Costco today to see if they have a big one for sale. If not, I’ll move my smaller one from my bedroom into my office. That way, I can highlight the biggest stressors in my life along with several ways to alleviate them.

I want it on a whiteboard next to me so that it’s always front and center. That way, I am less likely to forget that I want to accomplish certain things.

As I said last week, unless I can figure out my mental issues a bit, a new challenge would more than likely end the same way. I need to find that part of me that gives a shit again and to remove some of the things that are causing me to melt throughout the week.

Regardless of what happens, though, I never give up. I’ll start a new challenge after this one, but I want to make sure that I’ll actually be able to stick with it. I just need some of the weight off my damn shoulders aside from the pull-down machines.

What’s the Plan for Week 12?

So, this week isn’t going to be anything spectacular. I want to at least prove to myself that I can stick to my Net 600 Diet for longer than three days. But the week is mostly going to center on the mental perspective of what I want to accomplish.

That means spending more time finding a valid method to deflate and figuring out how to get my poop in a group. I think I’m getting relatively close, but can still feel the weight pressing down on me a bit.

Let’s make a goal: to get things going in the right direction and then start a new challenge on June 10th. That gives me two weeks to pull my head out of my ass. I don’t know if that’s going to be enough time considering how tightly my head is wedged in my colon.

I’m going to work on keeping this entire week green for calorie intake, though. Mostly to show myself that I can do it without the world coming apart at the seams. If I want that extra goodness, I gotta work to get it.

No matter what happens throughout the next couple of weeks, my primary goal is to relax and figure some things out. I would love to hit June 10th hard and keep it steady throughout the summer. Well, save for my visit to Utah, Las Vegas, and my Birthday. But as long as I keep on the ball, those three instances shouldn’t impact my fitness goals.

Let’s Wrap This One Up Well, Shall We?

One week left. Let’s see if I can keep the entire thing in the green. I owe it to myself to accomplish at least one thing during this last challenge. It won’t be easy considering how much pressure I’m under right now. But I know I can handle it as long as I don’t get sidetracked.

Maybe I can figure out a way to stay focused similar to how my live writing sprints have helped me finish writing one book while working on another.
