RES: Lets Kick it Up a Notch!


RES

Recommended Posts

Because it's expected by now...

Ivy.jpg.fa721d20dac0f312e8cc98ae0520eb50.jpg

 

So in the middle of the last challenge I lost my mind...and signed up for Kickboxing classes :o 

They are honestly a lot of fun, even though they make me realize how out of shape I am!

Made some not so good food choices over the weekend and ended up with a flare up that made me realize why I don't eat those items anymore...time to recommit to myself and my challenge.

I'm currently heavier than I've ever been in my life according to the scale this morning...that includes pregnancy (the first one I gained 50 lbs and was the first time I'd ever been over 200 lbs, currently being the second)

Challenge

1. Kickboxing 3 times a week, only exception is holiday schedule or if I have a 5K (doing both would be better) Had to reduce kickboxing to once a week, the repetition was too much for my neck damage. 

2. Portion sizes, even though I eat strict Paleo it has still been too much, keep tracking food and keep carbs under 60. Keep my Sun Basket subscription to help with this one :D because the easier I make it the more likely I am to stick with it! (One cheat a week is currently allowed.)

3. Hold myself accountable...since school isn't a part of my schedule anymore it seems like I'm at loss of what to do with my time. During season at my job I'm not at a loss of what to do with my time, but I need to hold myself accountable to checking in on my goals here, since we see what happens when I don't....I credit NF and the amazing people I've met here (and not wanting to let them down) with the progress I made before, and will again. Check in at least 3 times a week.

 

My spreadsheet link is in my signature, as is MyFitnessPal. Yes my spreadsheet goes to the end of the year and you are welcome to steal my format if it helps you, I break it down into quarters, ymmv.

 

Not comfortable with sharing my current measurements just yet, but plan on taking them at the end of every challenge with a +/- type thing...

12/3 - Out of Darkness Walk(overdid it, could not move)

They send you the ingredients and recipes, right to your door. I don't have to think about 'what's for dinner' or find the time to go to the store! It also helps that it's enough to make two or four servings. I get 2 boxes of three meals each, so six meals a week. Nothing goes to waste and it helps me with portion control which is a huge struggle for me

Oh ok.  I've heard of other services that do that.  One woman I hung out with ordered a service and she got the ingredients for a mushroom quesadilla; but then was too overwhelmed and had a migraine so *I* ended up making it.  Not too bad: just omitted the corn.

I can't imagine it changing how you look that much.  Maybe how you *feel* yeah.  I know that when I gained back 20 pounds, I felt like a fucking whale but in pictures it wasn't noticeable.  I had slightly more chipmunky cheeks instead.  And considering myself: EH!  Do or Die for me so maybe by May I'll have actual pictures of myself on here.  I ended up finding a picture of me at my heaviest.  Holy shit, it's scary what I used to look like.

Wanted to share this here...because it's true...for those of us in the states just enjoy the day today, holidays are stressful enough!!

 

Quote

Reminder: Don't buy into Thanksgiving day guilt. 
It's just one day. Just one meal (or 2-3 if you're in my family).

The calories don't count more than once.
The pie does not come with extra fat-inducing sugars. 
The pounds of turkey do not require a workout to burn them off. 
It's one freaking day.

If you worked out for 5 hours in one day, would you suddenly be shredded, lean, and muscular? No. So one day of eating is no different than one day of crazy exercise. It's one day.
The choice is yours on how you enjoy it.

Workout or don't.
Eat more than usual or don't.
Have an extra dessert or don't.

Whatever you do, let it be your choice. Your decision. And let there be no guilt. And, certainly, no punishment or mindset that you must "undo" the damage. Because it doesn't exist.

Like any celebration -- it's not about the food. It's about the people and the memories. You have plenty of other days to think and focus on calories and healthy eating. One day does not make a difference. 
Enjoy. Be grateful. Have fun.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a great day!!

Just found out that I'll be kickboxing alone this week...we have a friend getting married Saturday so the other half has committed to doing a backdrop for her (she does airbrushing) not sure where she'll find the time but...

Some 'not good' food choices were made last week, I'm okay with this

Glad to be heading back to work today...never know what to do with myself when I'm not working since being done with school...if I didn't live in an RV this may be easier, hopefully soon!
