Harriet's Organic Programming I
Harriet posted a topic in #111: 1/1/2023 to 2/4/2023Harriet's Organic Programming: Overview I want to combine programming with flexibility. I like how the JTS programming book explains the principles needed to make programming work (like identifying your priorities, determining what traits you want to cultivate and what modalities/exercises will support them, applying specificity, overreach and fatigue management, etc). It makes programming less mysterious. I want to take a structured approach to my programming this year. But at the same time I need to be flexible because I cannot know how bad my fatigue will be in advance. Hence, organic programming. It’s a sapling, testing where the stone might crumble a little to allow a tendril to anchor. It’s the seed of a planet coagulating speck by speck as each new mote joins and adds its own gravity to the growing core. The principles of my organic programming are within the spoiler. Process for Challenges Reflect on the goals, traits and modalities, and determine either the greatest current obstacle or an area that seems ripe for expansion. Choose what ‘exercises’ could help, decide on something to overreach in (difficulty that seems a little beyond me) but also pick a fatigue management fallback; lower-effort options that will help me maintain instead of giving up completely.
My spine is broken as fuck and here I am with a slipped disc again only 6 months after surgery. I don't know how things are going to unfold in the next weeks, so its 4 goals a week, changing up things as necessary. *realizes she is old now and cries softly* but hey: week zero goals: build back and stomach muscles by doing bodyweight core workouts daily (as long as it doesnt make the pain worse). Experiment with what's possible. Don't sit for very long. find out whether to keep going with keto or whether to eat a less strict low carb diet. Read recommended book on low carb. move outside with dog as much as possible organize doctors appointment LETS GO AND FINISH OFF 2020 ALREADY!
Doctorake, 3 simple thingsI pretty much gave up last challenge and ate So last challenge I did two GORUCKS and then really just sat around and ate. two years a go my pre IRONMAN Texas race weight was 163lbs. Up until a few months a go I have stayed down in the 165's or so. That has recently gone way off the charts though. This morning I was 175lbs. That being said I know a lot of it is sodium but I still have gained close to 10lbs I am guessing. It is not helping that my In Laws are here until Sunday and we are drinking and eating out every night. I can try to use that excuse but last nights burger and brownie sundae were my choice as opposed to a salad. The Delerium Red on draft was excellent though and I have never seen that. So for this challenge I would like to get under 163lbs, yes lose 12lbs in 5 weeks. Keep in mind though I should drop 3-5 quickly due to sodium. I also have two other minor goals, WOD daily, and eat paleo clean(this will be how I lose the weight). Lose 12 lbs WOD daily(includes stretching) Eat Paleo I do have a GORUCK heavy in 3 months so my WODs will be a 3 day rotation. Lift Recovery(swimming usually) Ruck, and possible light WOD That is about it for me. Kicking this off today 6/25.
Need Lunch IdeasHey everyone. I haven't been active here lately, but a recent Doctor visit gave me a wake up call. Below is something I posted on my Facebook page, to get input from my friends and family. Alas, there hasn't been much input yet. Some notes about me, I'm not paleo, and never really could be, if I understand paleo right. I consider cheese "free" (particularly mild cheddar and sliced american) because I love it so much. Please help me out with some lunch ideas! ---------------------------------- After my instructions from the Doctor to change my habits, I’m making a special effort to actually plan my Lunches (instead of winging it). Here is where you come in, I need everyone to give me lunch ideas. All ideas are welcome, though the ideal lunch will meet the below criteria: 1) Needs to be Low Carb a. No Bread or Pasta, but low carb alternatives (such as low carb tortillas) are fine. 2) Need prepare enough for a week a. I will likely be preparing this the Saturday before the week this will be eaten, so this needs to be able to be prepared ahead of time, and stay ok to eat all week. 3) Easy preparation is a bonus. Some notes: I do have a fridge, and Microwave available at work. Please give me feedback! Thanks!
