RES: Continues to WREST
RES posted a topic in #110: 10/23/2022For those who are new or behind, my main goal is weight loss, for health reasons as well as I want to look good naked, and fit in clothes I used to. I love 5Ks and kettlebells. I'm struggling with this goal because it doesn't get easier when you get older. My birthday happens in the middle of this challenge so there will be some flexibility for that if D decides to plan anything. I work from home, (3 jobs) as an accountant, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. It's very easy to lose track of how much time I've been sitting trying to solve an issue. Not having "all the unhealthy things" in the house also helps. I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle. I found a ‘diet’ plan, the Dr. that came up with its target audience is post-menopausal women. It’s really a combination of several different things like IF, Low Carb/Keto, and Macros. The common denominator is calorie reduction, of course, unless you burn more than you take in, nothing is going to work! My biggest issue is I get tired of trying to figure it all out and do a lot better when someone just tells me how and when to do it, so I’m putting this on easy mode until I lose the weight! I’ve decided to go back to the 5k training plan I used in 2019 that worked better than anything else I tried…it calls for one day strength training, three days ‘running’ (intervals at your pace is suggested) and one to two days cross training or rest days. I took a break in the middle of this because NF Journey had a 5K training that was very similar, so I’m doing that instead. I will be transitioning back mid-challenge because that will end, I’m also using the NF Journey app for workouts on the two days I’m not running. Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here. I plan on posting daily to make sure I'm on track where I need to be. Workout - The 5k training plan/NF Journey App Rest - Sleep (7 hours a night) - sleep is important Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - because fun makes life worth living Steps - Hitting my 7500 steps a day goal, minimum Track - Food, follow Galveston Diet, track in Chronometer Update - Post in thread at least three times a week. - self explanatory Duolingo daily
Modest Manda - Starting with coal
Modest Manda posted a topic in RecruitThis is my second attempt at a challenge and I'm going to try a smaller approach this time in hopes of sticking with it the whole 6 weeks, then I can build from that progress. Background: I am a 31 year old mom of 2, struggling to figure myself out enough to grow in a â€œhealthyâ€ way. I used to consider myself a â€œcountry/farmâ€ girl but now that I have a decent job/career established, I find myself behind a desk for what seems like the majority of my time. When I am not working behind the desk it seems as though Iâ€™m frantically trying to figure out how to provide nutritious meals to the husband and little people (one (the 4 year old child, has extensive medical demands including a high salt, high calorie diet! ugh!) and keep everyone happy. Long Term Lifestyle Goal: I am 5' 4" and 160 lbs so I would like to work on lossing 20 lbs or so but ultimately want to get rid of my belly bulge and have more engery and feel â€œSTRONGâ€ but want to be smart about it and will be focusing more on non-scale victories/activies along the way so Iâ€™m not putting an immediate deadline on this goal as long as Iâ€™m not noticing additional flab to squeeze into the clothes and Iâ€™m maintaining overall happiness. I would also like to figure out some physically challenging activities that I can enjoy and grow old doing. Fall 2015 goal: Iâ€™ve committed to a 30 miles in 1 day rugged Hike in efforts to raise money to support medical research that could greatly benefit my family down the road. This hike is in September 2015 and scares me ALOT! But I think I can do and am starting to train NOW! So now we have arrived at my 3 measurable goals for this 6 week challenge, that will get me closer to the goals aboveâ€¦ 1) Stick with Coach to 5k. By the end of this challenge, I should be able to jog for a continuous 30 minutes and should have a good foundation established to start working on time and/or mileage goals by the next challenge. I don't want to focus on speed at this time but just being consistent with walking/jogging daily with the simple of goal of pushing a bit more (hillier, faster, farther, etc.) each day. 2) Focus/Strength. I have recently become intrigued with yoga. I know very little about it and there are no close classes around me but I've been watching videos and want to start incorporating this into my life but starting slow. I plan to do the beginner body weight routine for strength work for this challenge but want to finish that with some solid but simple yoga stretches. I intend to alternate days focusing on yoga and bodyweight workouts. 3) Eat clean, consistently. This is a CHALLENGE as I tend to make this lots harder than it needs to be. I will do this by committing to plan meals WEEKLY so they are ready to go, easier on me and the family and more likely to be excuse proof. If I know whatâ€™s on the â€œmenuâ€ ahead of time Iâ€™ll have better luck avoiding the temptations at the office, grandmas, etc. that are around me ALL THE TIME! I will strive to keep our food SIMPLE for the next 6 weeks. Thatâ€™s the plan, here we go! *I will try to report in with weekly progress updates but will be significantly limiting my â€œtechnology usageâ€ in hopes of better time management and focusing on goals. oh and a note to self: be nice to ME...
