Josh:

Josh:

It's your boy.

Josh:

Josh changed it up.

Josh:

It's not your boy,

Josh:

Sean.

Video:

Uh, wow.

Josh:

This is a special episode.

Josh:

It is our very

Josh:

first Wiki way in

Josh:

episode of

Josh:

the new year.

Josh:

uh, we kind of teased it I forget which

Josh:

episode we

Josh:

teased it in the new year's resolution or,

John:

to say a resolution.

Josh:

that makes sense, I guess.

Sean:

That seems right.

Josh:

so basically what the show is

Josh:

going to be, uh, we're going to talk about

Josh:

our

Josh:

resolutions, once a

Josh:

month.

Josh:

We're gonna just a brief episode on Friday, the first Friday of

Josh:

every.

Josh:

We're gonna just talk about where we're

Josh:

at, basically in our resolution, what we want to change, and just kind of keep each other accountable and in

Josh:

a fun friendly way, but we also want to get you involved

Josh:

with the maniacs.

Josh:

So if you have a

Josh:

resolution, or want to give us updates

Josh:

on,

Josh:

how your resolutions going,

Josh:

you can email them to us.

Josh:

We will put a link in the show

Josh:

notes, uh, for our.

Video:

emails.

Josh:

And, uh, or you can go on our website@readitonwiki.com and I believe there's a contact us page.

Josh:

So you can go there as well

Josh:

and submit your stories there.

Josh:

You could also do a voice chat.

Josh:

We have voice chat

Josh:

functionality on

Josh:

our website.

Josh:

So, so if you want to leave us a voicemail, we'll play that on

Josh:

the episode.

Josh:

Uh, and we'll, we'll just

Josh:

keep up to date with, everyone's resolutions and

Josh:

see how, you know, keep each other accountable.

Josh:

Keep, keep 20, 22 fun and

Josh:

pause.

Josh:

So to kick it off.

Josh:

John, why don't you give us a you've

Josh:

you've been active in the chat, uh, with your resolutions.

Josh:

Why don't you give us your resolutions

Josh:

and, your plan for keeping.

Video:

to

Video:

them?

John:

Yes.

John:

So

John:

my resolution was, I wanted to actually achieve being in the

John:

1000 club in terms of

John:

lifting, for

John:

those wicked maniacs who might not be familiar with that, the thousand club is a combined 1000 pounds for deadlift.

John:

Uh, bench, press and squats.

John:

I want to say 2019 was the closest I got, I was at 865 pounds combined, with all that, but now I'm slowly getting back.

John:

I'm really out of

John:

shape.

John:

So.

John:

yeah, I actually wrote it down cause I like to write my, I actually like to write or a mat.

John:

so

John:

at the very best I was able to do one

Video:

rep

John:

of bench at 2 45.

John:

Um, my max squat was three 15 and my max dead lift was 3 0

John:

5.

John:

But now that I'm trying to get back into the swing of things,

John:

my bench has really gone down 180 5 is where I'm comfortable again.

John:

And then my squat, I just did 2 25

John:

last week

John:

And then deadlift I'm back to around

John:

2 65.

Josh:

yeah, dude.

Sean:

Jesus.

John:

getting, getting closer

Video:

and

John:

hopefully I kind of come back to four.

John:

Oh.

John:

And by the way,

John:

I'm also terrible at cardio.

John:

So I promised myself to, at least every time I'm at the gym, I have to at least

John:

do a mile.

John:

It doesn't matter if it's walking or running

John:

as long as

John:

a mile is

Josh:

Do a, do a kilometer it's longer.

Josh:

I hear.

Sean:

math checks out.

Sean:

I

Sean:

agree.

Sean:

It is a.

John:

Yeah.

John:

6, 6,

John:

6, 8.

Josh:

that's awesome, dude.

Josh:

Uh, yeah, my dumb

Josh:

ass

Josh:

was

Josh:

like a thousand pounds each that's, that's fucking

John:

oh fuck.

John:

no.

John:

Oh no.

Josh:

my, I hate squats.

Josh:

So I'd just try and get

Josh:

my, you know, bench up as much as I can.

John:

See, it's easy for short people to do squats

John:

because it's automatically 90 with my short,

John:

so it's perfect.

Josh:

I mean, I'm not tall, but yeah, I understand what

Josh:

you're

Josh:

saying.

Video:

Um,

Josh:

that's awesome, dude.

Josh:

Uh, any non physical

Josh:

related resolutions?

John:

Yeah.

John:

So I'm actually trying to sleep more as

John:

Sean and Josh knows I do not

John:

sleep.

John:

And I am awake at like four in the morning,

John:

every day.

John:

And I don't sleep till like 12 or one

John:

o'clock in the morning

John:

at night.

Josh:

Yeah, that's a good one.

John:

I, yeah.

John:

And,

John:

and, oh,

John:

and also

John:

like, I try to check off of.

Video:

work,

John:

whether it's work or podcasting, just like I shut down at a certain time.

Josh:

Nice.

Josh:

That's smart.

Josh:

That's smart.

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

definitely with the work from home stuff and being able to be contacted by your

Josh:

bosses at any time.

Josh:

a downside

Josh:

and that's

Josh:

fair.

Josh:

but that's awesome, man.

Josh:

I, I, definitely think sleep is a good idea for you.

Josh:

Um, it's a healthier for your heart.

Josh:

First of all,

Josh:

we we're going to keep this podcast

Josh:

going

Josh:

until we're

Josh:

90.

Josh:

you know,

Josh:

so when I'm 70,

John:

Golden boys.

John:

Fuck

John:

you.

Sean:

unless we get a thousand patrons on our $25 tier again, not good at math, but I feel like

Sean:

that's a lot.

Sean:

of

Josh:

Uh, that is a lot.

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

Um,

Josh:

that's awesome,

Josh:

And, we hope, to keep you going

Josh:

with that, as Sean, do you want to give us your resolutions

Josh:

And, how you plan on keeping those?

Sean:

Did we give resolutions already?

Sean:

I forget because I'm trying to think.

Sean:

And I don't remember if I said anything.

Sean:

I remember you mentioned reading.

Josh:

Yeah.

Sean:

I'm.

Sean:

I'm morbidly obese.

Sean:

So probably something to stop being

Sean:

that uh, that should probably

Sean:

be mine.

Video:

uh,

Sean:

Motivation or resolution.

Josh:

out of that classification.

Video:

yeah,

Sean:

Just, just maybe just be obese

Sean:

for

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

There you

Sean:

know,

Josh:

Yeah.

Sean:

just not morbidly, you

Sean:

know,

Josh:

like every other

Sean:

I, yeah, just every other American, you know,

Sean:

just

Sean:

lose weight, eat healthier,

Sean:

and probably be better with

Sean:

my family finances.

Sean:

Don't a dude.

Sean:

Uh,

Sean:

I need to probably

Sean:

stop eating

Sean:

like crazy

Sean:

expensive food.

Sean:

I would say 90% of my money goes to

Sean:

Eating food.

Sean:

I probably should

Sean:

not eat.

Josh:

Fair fair.

Josh:

Well, I mean, you gotta, you got to indulge a little bit, but yeah, definitely cutting back is a

Sean:

yeah, I'd probably, I, I probably indulge a lot, a

Sean:

bit

Sean:

as this, this shit.

Sean:

You know what I'm

Sean:

saying?

Sean:

Houston's too good, man.

Sean:

He still

Sean:

has too much good food.

Josh:

uh,

Josh:

I wouldn't know.

Josh:

Everything's closed here,

Sean:

Come, Come, by.

Sean:

come by, Texas.

Sean:

Never closed.

Sean:

unfortunately,

Josh:

that's awesome, Sean.

Josh:

Uh, we'll, we'll keep up to date

Josh:

with,

Josh:

to

Josh:

see where you're at.

Josh:

and

Sean:

Yeah, I wish I could give a

Sean:

heartwarming thing, but maybe this is good for the wicked maniac.

Sean:

So you don't have to start a

Sean:

hundred percent right away.

Sean:

You can gradually get into

Sean:

your resolution.

John:

Absolutely.

Sean:

so.

Josh:

I think you can also go the other

Josh:

way though, if you want to be.

Josh:

as

Josh:

a, I think this is the time to be

Josh:

as hopeful as you

Josh:

like dream

Josh:

big, whether it's a job or something

Josh:

that you really have wanted

Josh:

for a while.

Josh:

I think as long as you say

Josh:

I'm going to do this thing, I think that.

Josh:

That's all it mattered last year.

Josh:

My girlfriend was

Josh:

like, I want to run a half marathon.

Josh:

And I was

Josh:

like, you're fucking crazy.

Josh:

That's so

Josh:

you know how many kilometers that is?

John:

How many.

John:

Shaun.

Sean:

Uh, it's 13 miles.

Sean:

So It has to

Sean:

be more more than 13.

Sean:

kilometers

Josh:

go.

Video:

miles.

John:

it has to be

John:

more than 13.

Sean:

Fuck me.

Sean:

yeah, we'll worry.

Sean:

We're both right.

John:

yay.

Josh:

it's like

Josh:

21

Josh:

or something like that.

Josh:

Kilometers.

Josh:

Um,

John:

Yes.

John:

Sure.

Josh:

no idea, but it's something it's something

Josh:

crazy like

Josh:

that.

Josh:

And she'd never run one.

Josh:

She managed to do it in this by the summertime.

Josh:

I

Josh:

was, could not keep up.

Josh:

I was dying at like

Josh:

five or six and just could not,

Video:

um,

John:

be dead

John:

by

John:

three.

Video:

of a mile.

Josh:

but I'm onto my goals, my goals, uh, yeah, like Sean said, I

Josh:

I'm, I want to read more.

Josh:

I

Josh:

read

Josh:

one book last

Josh:

year,

Josh:

So

John:

Oh, I thought you read one already.

John:

I'm like

Josh:

I have almost read

Josh:

one already.

Josh:

I've been really digging into, uh, Neil

Josh:

Gaiman's Norse mythology.

Josh:

So it's stories of like low key, uh, Thor.

Josh:

all like

Josh:

from, from like historical texts and stuff like that, he gathered all the stories from poems and put them together.

Josh:

And it's a great, great.

Josh:

read.

Josh:

It's

Josh:

like a bunch of short stories of the gods and the dumb shit they get up to So I'm very

Josh:

happy with that one.

Josh:

Definitely recommend

Josh:

it.

Josh:

If we had an audible sponsorship, I would recommend it on

Sean:

would be

Sean:

great.

Josh:

Let's

John:

shout out to audible

Josh:

They support us for

Josh:

February's

Josh:

way in.

Josh:

And then, just general,

Josh:

in

Josh:

shapeness our gyms were closed a lot last year

Josh:

and they're closed

Josh:

again, think as of

Josh:

today.

Josh:

So I am slowly building

Josh:

a gym

Josh:

in my dungeon and, uh, we got a treadmill

Josh:

coming next

Josh:

week.

Josh:

We

Josh:

got, you know, a bench,

Josh:

we got adjustable weights.

Josh:

So I'm going to try and get

Josh:

back into the grind.

Josh:

cardio is a big thing for me, John.

Josh:

So

Josh:

I'm definitely gonna try.

Josh:

I'm putting a TV down here so that

Josh:

I can run and

Josh:

just watch TV

Josh:

and hopefully get my cardio up.

Josh:

but yeah, I think that is all of my goals.

Josh:

I would do want to travel,

Josh:

but

Josh:

it's

Josh:

hard to set that

John:

going to be

Josh:

hard.

Josh:

to set

Josh:

that

Josh:

goal.

Josh:

So

Josh:

as much as it pains

Josh:

me,

John:

say that I'm a flight next

John:

week

John:

to go somewhere.

Josh:

I wish you luck.

John:

I'm

John:

going to Vegas to

Josh:

Damn

Josh:

that's.

Sean:

Oh,

Sean:

bats COVID

Sean:

city.

Sean:

But.

Josh:

when, when John gets COVID, well, it'll just be Sean and

Josh:

I

Josh:

on the podcast

Josh:

next week.

Josh:

so yeah,

Josh:

I

Josh:

enjoy this.

Josh:

I think this

Josh:

is good.

Josh:

We can try and keep each other accountable and hopefully, keep the wicked maniacs, accountable as well.

Josh:

Um,

Josh:

if you want to tweet us, email us

Josh:

or give us a voice message of your goals or, resolutions or anything like that, feel free to do so we'll put a link in

Josh:

the show notes to all of, uh, the

Josh:

ways you can contact us.

Josh:

And, uh, yeah, this is super fun.

Josh:

I hope we can keep this up.

Josh:

This is a wrestler.

Josh:

My resolution

Josh:

is to keep this going.

Video:

Can

John:

I add something

Josh:

Yeah.

John:

Even if it's just, even if it's just something good that

John:

happened to

John:

you that month or something, let us know, like, let, like, let put it on a voicemail or if you want us to read it, like, we want to celebrate you, you

John:

know, like this is a good way for

John:

us to connect because.

Video:

feel like,

John:

I know I was listening

John:

to

John:

shouts and thoughts earlier this morning is about the good news that that happened.

John:

and the hosts, they were just like, I couldn't really think of any good things that happened.

John:

You know, like more of the bad, you hear more of the bad,

John:

it's more spotlighted than the good things happen And when something good does happen, you're like, oh shit, that really

John:

happened.

John:

I feel like we need to celebrate that more.

John:

So hopefully wicked maniacs get

John:

encouraged to let us know about the good

John:

things that happen in your life, because we want to celebrate you if no one

John:

else

Video:

will.

Josh:

I agree a hundred percent with that.

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

I just want to make this

Josh:

a positive show.

Josh:

So

Josh:

that

Josh:

I'm going to need it for my own mental, mental health.

Josh:

Over the next few months,

Josh:

the Canadian winters are cold and.

Josh:

And if I'm trapped

Josh:

inside, I

Josh:

need

Josh:

some positivity.

Josh:

So please send it our way.

Josh:

Uh, we will definitely

Josh:

need it.

Josh:

John won't, he'll be in Las Vegas getting COVID, but,

John:

Yes,

John:

pretty much.

Josh:

thank you guys for

Josh:

sharing.

Josh:

I hope

Josh:

you enjoy this and thank you, WCA maniacs for listening.

Josh:

We

Josh:

will see you guys on the next

Josh:
