    RES: Still Here

    In continuing with my quarter long challenges (because I'm kinda lazy like that) our goals are still: Gym 3x/week Food 5x/week, would be 7 but let's be realistic Nerd Fitness 3x/week posting something/somewhere doesn't have to be my own thread, hopefully this will become a daily habit again. Tracking spreadsheet is in the signature Gym has been a struggle, I am committing to doing this in the evening if my other half doesn't get up with me in the morning to go. Food...probably could be better but not horrible, my job is quite social and since being back in FL I've reconnected with a lot of friends and activities I enjoy. Been making it a habit to check on here more, having something to say doesn't always come easy to me though. Not sure what's going on with me lately, I haven't been doing that bad with my eating and have been better about not overdoing it, but I really need/want to lose weight and it's been just the opposite. I have fallen off a lot worse than I have been here lately so not sure what's up. Nothing I've been doing justifies a 15 lb gain in two months! This needs to get under control and quick!
  2. Last challenged started with me starting a new job, having some areas of life running smoothly as far as nutrition and learning to live in this RV...and wondering if I should bother with a challenge...since there were only 3 (now down to 2!) left this year, and they encompass my birthday, thanksgiving, Christmas, etc...I'm just going to take the rest of the year to get everything in place to knock 2017 out of the park! (I work for a minor league baseball team, you can expect more bad puns like this...) Yep, still planning on doing this!! Immediate goal is to pay off/down debt...when my wife was 'restructured' this year it was a huge challenge to find the money to move and keep up with the bills, we both have student loans that are affecting our debt/credit ratio that we need to address, I would also like to pay off the vehicles early since having two car payments is a struggle right now. The progress on this is going better than expected... I've made my other goals more specific as I've noticed some issues (I)nvigorate - my movement and strength training goal, aiming for 5 days a week (Joined a gym, will be going a minimum of 5 days a week, when I am on break I plan on working on more of a weights, etc, routine...for now I'll work on getting my endurance back...never thought I'd be so glad to see a treadmill! LOL) (V)ariety - social goal, aiming for getting out and doing something 'fun' once a week (this needs no adjusting...I'm almost overbooked!) (Y)in and Yang - Work on life balance - get enough sleep, leave work on time (when not required to stay) no bailing on events I say I'm going to (unless financial) (Sleep is still an issue...work tries to throw me out unless it's an event night LOL) I don't do nutrition goals anymore because honestly, I don't need to...I plan menus and my shopping list for the week and stick to it, with my current cash flow situation I've had no choice...I know how crappy it makes me feel when I cheat and it's not worth it... I enjoy power walking, kettlebells, and yoga...I don't like stressing over getting a certain number of these in a week so as long as there is something done five days a week I'm okay with that...I'm just trying not to gain right now, I'll work on losing in the future, it's not a focus right now...I'm trying to stay sane And on to the next Last challenge of 2016!!

  4. Oh wait a minute....not THAT kind of Cat.... That's better I really need a whip like that...my birthday is very soon *hint... I should probably put a R rating and NSFW disclaimer on my challenge threads at some point... So my last several challenges I have determined what is working for me, what is not, and noticed some things I need to work on...this has brought me to the conclusion I need to become a Cat(woman) C.atatonic - Cats are probably the most well rested animal out there, where as I, am not...according to my fitness tracker on a good night I may get 4 out of 6 hours of 'restful' sleep. For now I am going to focus on sleeping 7 hours, then we'll work on the quality...then increasing the quantity. A.gility - Cats are agile, I need to do yoga at least 2 times a week to improve agility and flexibility. Really no excuse on this one since we do it at work 2 days a week as well as off skates training to help with my agility on the track. T.raining - Okay cats don't need this but the theme is working for me...in addition to derby training I need to do kettlebell, and I'm doing four 5K's during this challenge, actually one is 8K (which does not count the 5K this Saturday!) W.oman - you need to finish school...course work is a priority this challenge on nights I don't have practice, turn in one lesson every two weeks. Breakdown is like this: Catatonic - 30 points Agility - 12 points yoga, 18 points off skates training Training - 12 points 5k's, kettlebells Scoring 2 points each DEX, STR, CON Derby practice is its own scoring, 18 practices and points. Scoring 2 points each STA, CHA Course work possible 24 points, for 2 WIS. and I have a pretty spreadsheet to help me keep track of it all....

    RES - FITYMI

    Okay, so a friend of mine posted something rather profound on Facebook the other day... "You don't have to change your attitude in order to change your actions. You change your actions and your attitude will slowly change." To which someone commented they had heard it phrased as "Act as if until you become." Which breaks down to "Fake It Till You Make It..." I do not have to love getting out of bed to work out...I just have to DO it! Making excuses is not going to get me to my goal, working at it, even when I don't really want to at that time, is going to get me to my goal. So, goals this round: 1. Lose weight - I want to lose 20 lbs by my birthday (which is the Saturday after the challenge ends) 8 weeks away...I did say want, but we're going to give it a shot... I already eat >95% Paleo...for the next 8 weeks there will be no cheats, I have a bad habit of taking a mile when given an inch. I've started doing yoga when I get home, not sure why it took me so long to start doing this but it needs to continue... I feel better when I get up and work out, I've found a kettlebell routine that needs to happen 3 days a week (no idea why this took so long either...), cardio (elliptical till the chiropractor says otherwise) the other 3, will rest on one day, probably Sunday but we will see...I have 2 or 3 5k's coming up as well. Need to do better at getting enough water, I drink plenty of coffee and green tea, but I notice a difference if I don't drink water2. Work on course - Homework, each lesson has about 6-8 assignments, need to do one a night every night. 3. I need to continue leaving work on time so I have opportunity to do this without stressing myself out more than I am... That's it, going to keep it fairly simple until school is done...the usual inappropriate comments and blatant flirting will still be here, of course... Leaving you with this thought because it's a good thing to keep in mind
