Peg's requesting permission for a fly by

Recommended Posts

Howdy -

I'm Peggy - a 48 year old emergency management specialist for the Centers for Disease Control (sounds mucho cooler than it is) I used the Top Gun reference in my title because unlike in the movie, I know that my pattern is not full - and I CAN make this fly by happen!

 

Main/ long term goal is to get my body fat down to 20-25%.  This is going to take some time - but, like eating an elephant, I will accomplish it one bite at a time (more literally than I intended)

 

Diet goals - Eat Paleo 85% of the time - NO alcohol - no more than one Cherry Coke Zero per day

 

Fitness goals - Attend CF class 3 days each week - do some sort of active recovery twice a week

 

Level Up My Life - Get 7 hours of sleep nightly (this is going to be my toughest one)

 

(GULP) - I just put it in ink, guess I'm committed now!

I love eating Paleo!! It is really my preferred type of menu. I'm just too disorganized and lazy to actual make it happen! If you figure out a way to do it, share your tips! I need hand-holding. :P

@The Real Syl Mil - I am lazier than lazy when it comes to meal prep - I am fortunate that Fresh N Fit Cuisine delivers to my gym twice a week (They also ship)  - so I'm able to get most of my meals already made for me (and it makes me go to the gym at least twice a week)

Whaaaaa?? That is stinkin awesome! I get healthy meal boxes once in a while (like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh) but they are too expensive to get regularly. I must check out this Fresh N Fit...

I have Sun Basket's Paleo option...for me it works out to being about as much as I was spending in groceries every week. Sleep goals do tend to be the toughest...I should but haven't done one in a while!

Welcome to the rebellion!

Checking in - 

 

Tonight will be the first night I'm actually getting a gold star on my sleep goal ---- I'm semi giving myself a pass on Monday because of the Bowl Games :)

Nutrition and Fitness have been on point - extra gold star for nutrition as I have not had ANY soda in 4 full days..... I have been CRAVING junk food/snacks - but have been getting by with grabbing my "with me at all times" Yeti filled with water.  Tomorrow is day 3 at the gym--- thought last night was going to be the end of me - but I did it.......

 

Eating that elephant - one bite at a time :)

Hi Peg,

I need to drink more water anyway- this is actually kick starting me into it.......  

 

How's the challenge been going for you so far?  I've just started on NF and like your grabbing water approach.    One of my goals for this challenge is literally just to drink more water :very_drunk: (Water, it kills me :P)

I'm so keen to try Paleo...and actually really want to give Whole30 a go...but know if I don't plan it all in advance, I'll likely slip up along the way.  I looked at Real Plans, but I think there's got to be a easier (free-er) way of doing it right? :blink:

I find keeping a (large) refillable bottle of water on my desk helps, keeps it handy when I reach for something to drink it's already there! I make it a goal to finish it by the end of the work day then that's 1/2 my water goal
