  1. I’m a week late because I just got back from vacation yesterday, but I’m going to give this ONE more try... things should be calmer for a few months, no traveling and probably less busy with work. 1. Drink a gallon + of water per day. 2. Lift 3x per week. 3. Ride, run, or do some kind of non-work cardio 2x per week. 4. Research things needed to make this small business legitimate & make a checklist. Stretch goals: 1. Do mobility work before bed each night. 2. Finish the book I started on vacation. 3. Edit photos & update blog.
  2. It’s alteady Wednesday. The most I’ve really done is meal prepped AND I took half of it to my boyfriend’s so that I’d have good there. Still hasn’t completely curbed gas station eats, though. Haven’t made lunch foods... I may need to buy a gallon jug of water to keep in the car and try to finish it off during the work day. Otherwise I tend to buy red bull or I just go all day without drinking anything. this week & next week involve longer workdays and I’m struggling to sleep. Haven’t been to the gym. Also realizing I have a little over two weeks to plan out each st
  3. Week 1 was an overall loss. bike-commute was only one day... then I got a rental car. The next few weeks are VERY busy and have groups every day, so I’ll need to park my car in that neighborhood if I’m going to bike. Can’t put my bike in the rental, so somewhat dependent on getting my car back. only drank enough water once. Only went to the gym once. Didn’t meal prep. i DID go on two fun rides this week. However, the first one was terrible because SURPRISE... when you’re underfed & dehydrated, you don’t perform well. Second ride wasn’t great, but essenti
  4. Yesterday I did none of the things. I think I had 6 glasses of water, which is more than I was doing before. I drove a rental car everywhere though, ate from a gas station, and didn’t go to the gym.
  5. 1. Check. 2. Done, but because someone hit my car while parked and it was towed away. 3. I think I got a little over half, day sort of derailed once I started getting calls from insurance companies. Tomorrow may be rough because I need to schedule a consultation with a lawyer. All the things. 4. I took protein snacks for lunch. I did not eat them.
  6. 1. No gym 2. Fail, but I worked from 5-8ish this morning and decided to do laundry in between a few dogs. Not giving myself a pass, but in the name of productivity... (I also fully intend to drive to my next stop) 3. Didn’t cook lunches and my bananas are going bad. Prime bread making time. But I crammed a bunch of productivity in before 10am and then spent an hour cleaning my roommate’s bedroom in the afternoon. 4. Done. ...I basically ate pizza, and went from drinking coffee to drinking beer all day today while binging Netflix and cleaning.
  7. I needed to exit this forum for a while, but I think I’m going to give it a whirl again. The entire structure of my life has changed. I moved into a new apartment with possibly one of the shittiest landlords around. I’m now working full-time (plus) as a self-employed dog walker. I own a car. I’m dating someone who is into bikes. How this changes my routine: - Previously, I was biking to all of my dogs. I now physically can’t do that every day because I’m dabbling in group walks to increase earning potential. - I’m struggling to get to the gym. By the end of

    Tuesday:

     

    1/1: Meditation complete.

     

    0/1: protein. I’ve basically just been pigging out on carbs.

     

    1/1: gym. Hit 8x195 on squats. Not a PR but they were fast (slightly wobbly). 

     

  9. Monday: 0/1: didn’t meditate. Was pretty much running around until I went to bed because of a later meeting. 0/1: didn’t get enough protein. I’m considerinh using a supplement because it seems like if I don’t chow down solely on chicken breast & eggs, I don’t come close to enough.
  10. Sunday: 1/1 Successfully meditated & stretched. 0/1 Didn’t get enough protein. Since I’ve been pretty scatterbrained I may try to do small daily updates on these.
  11. It’s zero week! My last challenge was focused on not falling apart, but I made so many goals that my head was spinning the entire time. I’m going to take a different approach and chill out with the 30,000 goals. Lifting: I’ve started a program. Finished up the first cycle last week. Technically this week is my de-load, which means I’ll start my challenge with a new cycle. My actual goals for this challenge: - make it to the gym 4x per week. - don’t be so rigid about what those days are. I have historically tried to get all of my stuff in du
  12. To be fair to myself, I was out mountain biking from like 8-11:30 or 12 or something. A “slow and clumsy” ride after which I discovered that neither wheel was spinning freely (first time ever I’ve been the fastest in a group AND at a severe disadvantage) thats slightly productive
  13. Week 4 & Recap: updating this now because I don’t see myself doing anything productive today, unless eating a ton of peanut butter and watching Netflix is productive. Schedule: this week I did a more proper wind-down twice. Once resulted in better sleep, then the Airbnb upstairs put the kibosh on my sleep the next night. i did write down future appointments & did a weekly google keep schedule every Sunday, so this part was done. $$$ didn’t list things for sale. ate takeout Sunday, chipotle yesterday. i think I
  14. The only real negative is that nobody in the planet (or in my house) is like this - at least nobody in my life - so I’m usually battling noise, messages, or invites to be social *sigh*
  15. Sleeeeeeeeep update: i finally got over 8 hours of sleep last night according to Garmin and I mostly trust it. I will say that Fitbit was better at figuring out when I wake up in the middle of the night. Important points: - didn’t drink water for hours before bed. Really wanted to, but didn’t. - started my winding down at 6:30. That’s right everyone, this grown ass adult called it quits for the day when everyone else was having dinner. - stretched thoroughly. My body has been feeling pretty beat up and I haven’t even been lifting weights. Felt so
