TiffanyD - Stays Home, Loses Weight... What!?!


.TIFF

Recommended Posts

So the last week of my last week of my last challenge I decided to go keto again.  And it was the first time I had stuck to anything for over a week in a long time, and I made some serious progress before thanksgiving food fest 2017.  I know a large part of my issue is that I haven't wanted to be at my gym.  It's odd how a sentence or two coming from someone you thought was a friend can do that.  And really while my work has been a shit storm since Sept I could make it in, I just let myself use the excuse that work has been busy.

 

 

So this challenge I am going to start off with the one thing I know I can stick to, and let myself stay home, but I have to have a happy medium and actually put in some work too.

 

Goal 1:

 

90% Keto until Christmas.  I have found I can treat myself with a bit of wine, or a small bowl of ice cream here and there and not jump ship so those are allowed.

 

Goal 2:

 

Do something with weights once a week.  I am allowing myself to stay away from the gym, so I can go if I want to but I can also use all the damn equipment at my house if I want to as well.

 

Goal 3:

 

Do some Cardio.  I have a few yoga videos that are also serious cardio and a max trainer, must use them twice a week.

 

Note: Drink all the damn water.  This helps me stay on track more than anything else so it needs to stay in focus.

 

Starting Stats Go Here: TBD tomorrow AM since I am late to the end of year party.

This week had a bumpy start, but yesterday I promised myself a solid keto day, and stuck with the plan.  I even made a new recipe for lunch, so I have a tuna/avocado salad with cottage cheese for today/tomorrow.  While i haven't been lazy (deep cleaned the house), I have been lazy with working out.  So I have 2 cardio days and a weight training day to complete by Sunday 10pm which means I will be checking in after a workout tonight, tomorrow and Sunday!

 

I have also decided that Paul Rudd is my spirit animal this go around...

It was more like a overly competitive lady trying to add drama to my life and upped the creepiness factor by explaining her current So (my trainer at the time) wanted me at some point.  I really don't dig being overly competitive in the first place, but I get that it can push people in good ways sometimes... The trying to add a competitiveness/weirdness about a guy I have no interest in, and never had in that way just to try to get a rise out of me... or for whatever reason made me just want to gtfo.  They are both so ingrained in the gym I go to I haven't really had a want to be there when they are around, and one being a trainer... well that means they are around a lot.  * seriously, im too old for this shit.

ANYWAY!  

 

While I got back in my low carb groove I was too lazy last week.  This week that is not happening.  Today is weights, as soon as I get the dogs settled I am heading to the gym or patio (workout selfie required for accountability).  I have both an at gym or at home workout plan set so I can hit the ground running.

 

Yesterday I did get meals set up for today and the next 2 days for lunches/breakfasts, and I have a shopping list to finish out the week with only 1 dinner having significant carbs so that will be on a post cardio evening.  So not giving up the sloppy joes with buns, lol.

Sloppy joes over zoodles are amazing j/s!

If that's what's preventing you from going to the gym, I would find a new gym if that's an option...I don't know why some people feel the need to surround themselves with drama :(

I have been looking, it's just soooo close/convenient, and the owner/other people are really awesome as well.   

 

I did in fact enjoy a potato bun last night with the cheesy beef concoction I created last night that wasn't quite a sloppy joe, but I will have to try zoodles with it.  I am having the leftovers of it with some mashed cauliflower today for lunch :D

Yesterday went kind of wonky so today was my first active day of the week.  Went for a jog/walk over lunch...  My stomach was like wtf lady we hungry the whole time but I made it, and am now chowing on my leftovers and cali mash.  Things taste so much better when you are really hungry.

Me whilst reading of gym drama above. People are weird..and petty.. and a lot of unprintable things. Sorry you had to deal with that mess! :(

 

Great job getting in a jog/walk today! Looks like it was a pretty day for it :)

 

 

 

 

This was months ago, but what really began my downfall into not working out/firing my trainer.  I am trying my best to "get over it" knowing that I can go and do my own thing and they will probably not talk to me at this point.  The couple times I have stopped in they weren't there and everyone else was like "you're not dead!", so there is still a good community there overall.  I am looking at a possible powerlifting/nutrition program with an online coach that might get me back there more often, so  we will see how things go :) It may be time to start training with a lady lifter too, not that they are easy to come by in orlando these days.

I am alive!  And still in this challenge, but things have changed up a bit :D 

 

I decided to work with this lady trainer I found on IG, and got my new schedule/nutrition sunday.  Keto was switched to a full balanced macro plan, and  I was really worried yesterday morning when I woke up to an extra 2 lbs and a ballooned gut, but it's starting to subside already and I am down one of those pounds today.

 

I have been going solid so far, and did my first heavy workout in months last night.  My back and bum are reminding me today. 

 

I did:

 

DL 4 x 5 at 210,  after 2 warmup sets with 135lbs and 185lbs

 

Supersets of Bulgarian Split Squats and Goblet Squats 3 sets of 12 each leg and 12

 

Both Hamstring curl machines (sitting and prone) at around 60lbs for 3 sets of 15 each

 

10 Jump Squats for a final burn out... could have done more, but I didn't.

 

Today is Bench Day...  And macros are pretty solid but we have a communication lunch so I need to watch my portions on that.

Yesterdays Bench session along with the leg DOMS has me feeling like I've been hit by a bus, lol.

 

Was a bit low on protein and carbs last night, but not too horrible overall.  Weight seems stable as of this morning.

 

Today is a rest day, but a walk is in order and some stretching.  I am supposed to do a HIIT cardio session, but I don't know that my legs will take that today so ill play it by ear.

 

Cooked lunches for the rest of the week yesterday, so pesto chicken thighs, with wild and brown rice and zucchini is on the menu with teriyaki beef and broccoli tonight.

Yesterday was solid besides forgetting my pre bed protein shake, so I was a bit low on protein and 200+ under on calories for the day.  I did do my cardio though, really not sure how I am going to get through squats today....  Hopefully my body acclimates to this stuff quickly.

Last week was the first week I have been happy with hitting my goals for a challenge in a really long time, it wasn't 100% but it was solid.

 

4 of 5 workouts complete, including the worst squat day I have ever had.  I didn't do leg accessories yesterday, but it was mainly due to the fact that I really felt they needed a break.

 

5 out of 7 days were good on macros, not perfect, but good.  The weekend went to crap in part due to a holiday party, and I am struggling to not enjoy adult beverages on my days off and in general for the holiday.

 

I have been drinking all the water, even on the weekends.
