New year, Same Marissa


miss_marissa

Recommended Posts

To recap 2017:

Starts on a great note. Hit new PRs on all 3 lifts. Compete in powerlifting competition at the end of January and crush. Complete my first Whole 30. Promptly injure myself in February and spend the remainder of the year rehabbing. Also spending lots of time ignoring my fitness and nutrition because of work stress. I started running and completed a GoRuck light in the fall.

 

Looking forward to 2018:

Be injury free

Be able to lift heavy again without pain

Find some semblance of work life balance? Realize there is always going to be that next deadline or design review and learn how to say enough is enough.

Continue to learn more cool gymnastics tricks

READ MORE COMICS! Especially more from non-big 2 creators and those with strong female/minority/LGBT+ characters/creators

Start crossfit *GASP* who ever thought I would say that huh?

I also committed to doing 22 pushups daily for the whole year with a few other nerds for suicide awareness in veterans.

 

Additionally, I'm getting a little uncomfortable with my body composition and want to focus on a bit of fat loss.For this month, I'll be travelling for 11 days and won't have gymnastics class (and haven't been since Dec 11) so I want to keep up with my skills. Additionally try to eat As Paleo As Possible (APAP) while living from a hotel room. (This means making intentional paleo choices, but not worrying about things like added sugars in a salad dressing or hidden soy lecithin etc)

 

Let's go back to checklist style because that seemed to work well when I was utilizing it.

 

1) Fitness

Move your body in some way minimum 4x/week. Moving includes lifting, gymnastics, yoga (longer than 15 minutes), or cardio. Currently following The Bigness Project as my lifting program.

☐☐☐☐ Move 4x/week

☐☐ Handstands 2x/week, 10 minutes min.

☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Daily 22 pushups

 

2) Read

☐ Comic a day. Total__

 

3) Movement/Mobility

☐☐☐ Stretch, foam roll, mobility routine, etc 3x/ week

 

4) Nutrition

☐☐☐☐☐☐ Eat APAP 6x/ week

Ooh the bigness project! How are you liking that? Jen Sinkler is the best.

I like it quite a bit so far. I've never really done a hypertrophy program before so it's something new. I started nearly a month ago, but just finishing up week 3 due to holiday travel and stuff. Haven't seen results really yet, but just focusing more on rebuilding a regular gym habit as opposed to looking for results.

Starting on a Tuesday so this week 1 will be a little different... My weeks will run M-Su. Basically just going to take out one of the APAP checkboxes for Monday. I still should have pushups for all 7 days.

Using my non-paleo day for the week as I came up with the challenge halfway through the day and already ate non-paleo.

Workout was glutes and hamstrings. Today will definitely be stretching/ foam rolling. owie

Worked late and got home and was LE TIRED so did am workout today instead. I read Saga and tried to go to bed early and ended up just laying in bed for like and hour and then having nightmares all night. I'm pretty tired today. Stretched and foam rolled. Glutes and hamstrings are owie. Need some loving on those connective tissues.

 

I have some non-paleo food prepped from before I decided to do APAP on Tuesday: pitas for sandwiches, chickpeas, black beans. I'm going to allow myself those (and probably other legumes...) this week because otherwise I would feel wasteful throwing away all this food I already prepped before I leave for business trip.

1-4-2018

Worked late (again) and was HANGRY. I ended up going to the grocery store and picking up some food for the next 3 days.

Dinner was rotisserie chicken, sweet potato fries and more brussels sprouts.

For the next few days I'm taking the lazy route and picked up:

  • frozen zoodles
  • frozen cauli rice 
  • bell peppers
  • red onion
  • pasta sauce
  • avocado

Which should be enough combined with the chicken and a kielbasa in the freezer for pasta and taco bowls. Should have grabbed a lime too BUT WE CANT ALL BE PERFECT ALL THE TIME. And sometimes hangry brain gets in the way.

 

Lunch was non-paleo with the pita and chickpeas, but that was the last of it. (I've also been having protein shakes, which I know are not paleo, but I need to plan my snacks better and that's a healthy-ish option that I have available. Really yesterday wasn't paleo at all, but it was a turnaround from where I was 2 weeks ago so I'm taking it). I'm really just in this to try and kick the sugar dragon, and I know I'm not doing a great job of that yet, but it's a work in progress.

 

Did my pushups and handstands. Spread some butter on my shoulders cuz they're toast.

I get store brand because I'm cheap AF :D

There is a whole foods, but it's kind of on the other side of town so I've never been there. Actually, the only time I've ever been is one is when I visited Denver Maya and I went lol

I have a similar meal in the queue this weekend! Burgers with brussels sprouts is where it's attttttt.  It sounds like everything you ate was pretty healthy even if not paleo so especially while ramping up in week 1 that should be two thumb up :D

yummm!!!

Yea, I'm overall not bummed about it, but still room for improvement!

Drool worthy. I LOVE roasted brussels and homemade fries!

thanks!

 

1/5 - 1/7 2018

 

1) Fitness

 Move 4x/week

☐ Handstands 2x/week, 10 minutes min.

☑☑☑☑☑ Daily 22 pushups

 

Friday morning squats and quad focused. Sunday Chest and back + running. Pushups everyday. Friday handstands.

 

2) Read

 Comic a day. Total days: 4

Read only on Friday, but I read A LOT on Friday.

 

3) Movement/Mobility

☑☑☑ Stretch, foam roll, mobility routine, etc 3x/ week

Stretched and foam rolled all 3 days. I actually feel really good and think I should probably do something daily. 

 

4) Nutrition

☐☐☐☐ Eat APAP 6x/ week (5x for W1)

Ate taco bowls, "pasta". Lots of the stuff I picked up Thursday. I did not fully paleo comply though.

I ate a bowl of cheddar sour cream chips on Saturday because I WAS CRAVING BAD.

And then Sunday I had wine and cookies (4 small ones) while watching the Golden Globes

Otherwise, fairly paleo. And for "zero week" not awful, an improvement on the previous weeks, but certainly room to improve coming up.

It might well be!  When I think about it more, I remember being very young, like 6, 7, or 8 and my mother got a Zoodles towel with wrappers.
