    Darkfoxx 49: Sun, You Won’t Defeat Me

    Wednesday Wednesday Group - had an egg white/chia seed omelette with salad, 2 coffees with soy & 1 of the 2 macaroons my coffee came with while out Miscalculated how hungry I was again and got the spins while walking home (22mins in and out of ac/104 degree heat) Drank my smoothie when I got home That did zero for my hunger - had my Protein hyperbole shake Laid down for a bit - watched history documentaries Dinner was rotisserie chicken & shiritaki rice with butter & baby chard chucked in for some green 1186 Calories 84g carbs 38g fat 134g protein Caught up on most Nerds’ threads Social media taken care of Pupper walk Thursday Smoothie & coffee for breakfast Leg day with the trainer - worked on better Split squat and lunge posture, he broke out the foot slider things that are the devil, more rowing - 400m rounds this time, lots of bridges. Had a surprisingly good chicken tikka salad and actual legit unsweet tea for lunch while catching up with a girlfriend Also had a Diet Coke - which tasted just a bit *too* good, so I’m seriously thinking about doing another Whole30 running the last day of August - September 29 (September 30 is a travel day and there is no way in hell thats happening). Hubby came home early and picked me up. Squandered the day playing with his new ridiculous fitness watch. Dinner was chicken & roasted butternut squash. Only caught up on a couple threads POD Pupper walk 1352 Calories 92g carbs 42g fat 138g protein Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Brushing & flossing is something! And - I bet you can find a way to combo cleaning with a little fitness and date night vibes at least. Doesn’t have to be a totally lost cause! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They were so fun - and sneaky hard - and worked shit I didn’t know existed. Can’t wait to do them again! Tuesday Coffee & smoothie Tuesday group & a coffee Mall walk & lunch - shrimp guacamole salad Came home and cooked for the mini Low carb paleo falafel & rotisserie chicken for dinner My first protein shake filled with hyperbole powder to round out my protein macro Posted a video POD Caught up with my Nerds 1300 Calories 76g carbs 59g fats 138g protein Arms and shoulders were a bit sore, as were thighs (probably from using my legs too much during deadlifts) but nothing too terrible. Looking at available yoga classes today, Friday, and during the weekend. I’m making it to at least 1 - fingers crossed the cheaper classes come back soon! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Keto subreddit is great; I would imagine there’s a W30 one as well. Meals - some batch cookable, some one-offs: https://gastography.com/?s=Whole30+wrapup&submit=Search I think Nom Nom Paleo did a meal roundup as well, and I’d hazard a guess someone on the forums has addressed batch cooking. I’d say most things I batch cook at home are naturally W30-compliant: roasted veggies, chicken, salmon, big meats in the pressure cooker - you may also find luck with paleo batch cookers. I know there are a few on Instagram and I seem to see lists pop up quite frequently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Payne’s Green - buuuuut I’m a sucker for jewel teal this year and have somehow ended up with 3 pairs of leggings in the color. And ooooh - forgot about the Reebok Nanos. I may or may not desire to make the jump to lifting shoes shortly. Was thinking of the minimalist New Balances, but Reebok has some killer color combos ... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yay Week 1! Monday Macros were ok-ish - DH was *supposed* to bring home protein powder, which would have put me on target with protein -- but he forgot, and I couldn't force more food into my face for the day. 1163 calories 81g carbs 53g fat 90g protein Arms and back day with the trainer - did a whole bunch of stuff (obvs) - including TRX push-ups and bodyweight rows, deadlifts, and some other stuff - went up in both weights and reps for each set of things.

    Welcome! You're in good company because we (Rangers) are the best! And you're a man after my own heart, I see - I was *just* talking to a couple friends about doing my 4th Whole30 in October if this current round of 'shit I am doing in an attempt to kick my ass into gear' is not 100% successful -- tbh, I'll probably do it anyway for funsies, since I'm weird like that. If you need meal suggestions, let me know - I'm a hella food nerd and documented my meals (for my Nerds) with each round. And minimalism! I've been down that journey too and absolutely loved it - played the Minimalism Game a few (years?!) ago with some of my Nerd Herd, and have been on a downsizing track since then. Any questions? Let me know! Following along - and can't wait to see where you go from here!

    Antoni feat complete: made low carb paleo falafel for dinner; shot pics, wrote recipe, scheduled post. Whoo! Now the question is: can I go for 2 this week with the ingredients I have in my kitchen? Only time will tell

    "Danger" is NOT Xena's middle name

    What about good old Pedalyte? (sp?) it’s marketed to give babies electrolytes and I’ve heard it tossed around as a good grocery store find - that and coconut water. Not sure if either of those are as good as the over-engineered stuff, but may be worth looking into further. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine. Didn’t get up to grab the laptop, but posted. And joined the mini.

  14. Or, to put it eloquently: [emoji867][emoji274][emoji91][emoji91][emoji91][emoji867] Summer where I am sux0rs on all the levels and lasts for-freaking-ever. Luckily, kids have to go to school - expat wives & families have to return - and schedules eventually go back to whatever “normal” consists of in a place that experience scheduled schedule shifts a solid 2-3 months out of the year. As far as I know, building yoga comes back in September - as do Arabic classes. Buuuuuuuut I now have a whole other thing going on, so ... Goal The First Continue on with the trainer for this 4-week cycle (which will take me to the end of August), and see what we can work out for September. I have a max of 12 weeks with him before I’m cut off. Trainers are expensive. We have a Monday/Thursday schedule, and it looks like arms + back then legs and sneaky core (at least going on this first weeks’ workouts). He’s happy with my yoga and thinks I should continue that 1-2 Days a week. I’ll co to us going to either my bougie place during the week - or to the hotel spa thing with DH on Saturdays when that’s around until my building chick comes back and I can do that again. There is also another yoga person starting back up Sunday evenings nearby - and we can combo that with scheduled dinner with friends in the same tower. Goal The Second With this new fitness overlord comes new macros: 1350 is my BMR (this is consistent with what I’ve always calculated it at), so stick under that in rest days; he allows for some weekend shenans 130g protein - which has surprisingly been hard af for me to hit this past week 70-something carbs - since I like low carb anyways (and that’s what works for my body) 80-something in fats (also seems reasonable - I’m not shooting for Keto atm) Goal The Third 2 videos (YouTube) 1 recipe post (blog) 7 picture of the day posts (blog) 2-3 Instagram posts (x2 for both accounts) 2 Group social outings 1-2 one or two-on-one social outings 1 combined friends & hubbies outing Pupper walks after sunset Take 1 weekday of rest for me - research a destination or learn something about editing Keep up with my Nerd herd Ranger Mini!!
