  1. I like your measurable goals! And good job realizing quickly that your piano goal was unrealistic and changing it - no need to set yourself up to fail.
  2. Tuesday Rise and Shine: ✔️ - working on baby's sleep, read my devotional on the kindle app Work it out - nope Pump - yup Food tracking - went over on calories thanks to date night drinks but not by much. Turns out that when I was under the other day, it didn't affect my supply at all, so I wonder if I need to adjust my goals. That bridesmaid's dress ain't gonna wear itself. Social Media - I was so good, despite the temptation being SO HIGH. I was stressed out which triggered cravings for both social media and sweets. I caved a little on the sweets, see ^^ but didn't fall into the social media scrolling for dopamine trap! Wednesday Rise and Shine: ✔️ Work it out - nope Pump - yup (this is starting to feel like those TikTok videos) Food tracking - just under, which as above, is probably fine. My first day with the powdered peanut butter but I still had the high fat yogurt and a super cheesy lunch (Amys frozen mexican casserole). If I'm able to meal prep more this weekend, my fat intake should go down because I don't mind a simple meal of something like rice, a veggie, and a lean protein, but I gotta make it in order to eat it. (woah, deep). My protein was way low, perhaps due to the "meatless monday" meal I had (yes this was on Wednesday, I was interrupted cooking it on Monday). Still clearly figuring out macros here. I feel like I hyper load on protein in the morning with some collagen protein in my coffee, eggs, peanut butter, and yogurt. This would probably again be better if I'm meal prepping. Can someone come watch the LR for me while I meal prep on Sunday Social media - I went to facebook on my phone then closed it, then downloaded instagram, checked my messages (I didnt even click the groupchat from my friends), then re-deleted. So I almost caved but I'm still counting it
  3. Thank you!! Right now, I'm reading "How to Study Your Bible: Discover the Life-Changing Approach to God's Word". I want to be able to dive deep into the Bible on my own, so I'm reading this to get a game plan on how to do that, then I think I'm going to start at the beginning Thanks!! ---- So I have an official goal change alert to my Rise and Shine goal. I'm clearly not going to get up at 5 if I'm up from 3-5 with the LR. Then I'm just getting up at 3, which is not sustainable. So the new goal is to work on following through with our sleep plan for LR, and then reading the aforementioned book on my Kindle app while I nurse in the morning, in addition to an email devotional I get (from Proverbs 31 Ministries). That's about as complex as I can get until LR sleeps through the night again. I miss those times when I was telling everyone what a good sleeper he was, but I'm determined to get back on track.
  4. I didn't realize this technically started on Sunday or I would have updated about my weekend. So here's a super update: Saturday Early rising ✖️ Tracking food ✖️ Pumping - eh. It's harder on the weekends to want to pump in between feedings. I got the fancy portable pumps but its still weird for me to hold him while I'm pumping and bending over with them on isn't recommended Workout ✔️ yay! I did a strength workout and a foot mobility workout Social media ✔️ Sunday Early rising ✖️ But I went to church so I'm considering that as bible study ✔️ Tracking food ✖️ turns out when I'm at home doing stuff, I'm much less likely to track things than when I'm sitting at my desk with my phone in front of me Pumping - see above Workout ✖️ Social media ✔️ Monday Early rising ✖️ BUT I decided to buy the book I bought in paperback to help me with bible study on kindle too so I started reading it while I'm feeding the baby in the mornings, so I'm going to give that half of the challenge ✔️ Pumping ✔️ get that liquid gold Tracking food ✔️ - I was under all my macros except for fat, and my total calories because the L.R. was screaming on and off for two hours - when I had planned to finish cooking dinner, eat said dinner, workout, and do more work. So you can imagine I did all of those things, too. No wait, I did none of them. So while it's a win because I tracked and I was under my calories, I might have been under too much. It doesn't seem to be affecting my milk yet but we shall see at the end of the day. Maybe it just would have affected my MOTN milk, which I let my husband feed a bottle instead anyway. Workout ✖️ technically I got dressed and did one set of one exercise. Plus going up and down all the steps of our house was kind of a thing. But if we're being real, no, I did not workout. Social media ✔️ I got on Facebook for 30 seconds to make sure I placed a name with the right face, but I did not scroll so that's a win. Mother of the year award ✖️✖️✖️ Y'all. This sleep training is no joke. I'd say send your best tips, but I'm pretty sure I've read the entire internet's tips while trying to soothe him. I also have a tough load at work this week so I don't foresee anything getting any better time-wise. I brought workout clothes to work so maybe I can do a quick jog this evening but....geez. Feeling kind of desperate here, I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel on how he's just going to magically start sleeping better since nothing we've been doing so far is working. And I'm not a person who does well on little sleep.
  5. Excellent introspection and re-prioritization. Nice work!
  6. Another rough morning. Little Rebel woke up from 2-3:30 and like 5-6:30 and was ravenously hungry/cranky. Feeding him at this time feels like actual torture but I keep surviving. Then I let him sleep in a bit, woke him up at 830 to eat and he was magically not hungry at all, just kept looking up at me and smiling. Where was this precious temperament in the wee hours of the morning?! Got my pumps in nonetheless, and a 20 minute HIIT workout. Went way over on calories, thanks to a bag of candy the dear husband bought for me. It was a present so I obviously had to eat the whole thing, right?! (Wrong, so wrong). As to individual macros, I was fairly close on protein and carbs (under and over, respectively) but WAY over on fat. I bought some of that powdered peanut butter stuff that's lower fat, and found a non fat yogurt at the store that's also low sugar (feels like it's usually one or the other),to reduce my fat in the morning. I got 64% of my fat at breakfast yesterday. That's insane. And I might need to resist the urge to smother everything I eat in cheese. Major frowny face. I'm going to try to meal prep to more extreme measures this weekend, like portioning out my yogurt (I usually buy a big tub because plastic) and weighing my meat instead of just picking whatever MFP says I probably ate. No social media: ☑️
  7. Following for your bible reading goals!
  8. I love this goal: simple, tied to a specific action, measurable, etc. GL!
  9. Good attitude! GL with your goals!
  10. My black thumb is envious of your farming abilities
  11. Oooo I'm doing this too! Except in the mornings, hopefully. Let us know what plan you decide on.
  12. Parallel parking is my enemy - what a good dragon to slay during a challenge!
  13. Quick post New Year's Day, pre-official challenge start update: Apparently the little rebel is not going back to his routine now that we're home from traveling. So first we need to implement some sleep training ideas before I can be expected to get up before him. This will get worse before it gets better.... I did manage to get a workout in yesterday though. Foot mobility, back PT, strength, and a four minute HIIT thingy. It felt really good. Calories were pretty good yesterday but I was low on both protein and carbs. Apparently I need some low fat, high other stuff ideas for food. Since we were off work yesterday, I mostly fed the baby but got in some pumps in between. My right side was not cooperating so hopefully that's better today. I forgot a pump part this morning so TBD on if I can squeeze in enough pumps or if I need to scale back on calories a tad. Had to reinstall instagram on the FIRST DAY of my social media fast, but it was just to send a message, get a response, and get back off so I'm still calling that a win.
