well done yesterday!! sounds like a lot. i haven't had blue bell in soooo long, was it delicious?

Yes! No B&J's, but it fits in my cutting macros next week, sooooooo...still great.

 

Also totally thought while picking it up, "Man, I'm really a fan of brands associated with high-profile disease outbreaks" (because I also really love Chipotle).

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Literal LOL.

 

Adulting update: called about check, apparently I need to go to an actual bank branch to get the old check reissued. Blergh. But at least now I'm not feeling weird anxiety about needing to do it. Didn't take my pants in for hemming, felt totally wiped after work and I'm desperately hoping I'm not getting sick.

Well...I didn't quite allocate enough sleep time to be sure, but I think it's just allergies - took a sudafed this morning and it seems to be helping overall.

You rock, thanks!! Banks are the worst (says the banker....)

 

 

Week 0, Day 4 (Thursday): Another tired day - like I alluded to above, had noooo energy after work and opted out of some adult tasks as a result. Then stayed up too late finishing HP5 and only got about 7 hours of sleep as a result.

  1. Comply with calorie and protein targets, figuring out weekends: Nope - about 200-300 over tolerance thanks to extra ice cream - I think my cals target this week is a little low based on the binges. And I still weighed in at 174.2
  2. Allocate 8 hours / night for sleep: Allocated 7, stayed up too late to get 8 AND get to work on time for my 9 am meeting.
  3. Keep working out as scheduled: Yup - cartwheels, tuck jumps, inverted presses, and core circuits. Opted to skip lactic conditioning because deaddddd.
  4. Do scheduled adulting tasks each week: not quite - missed pants and dance practice
  5. Make another Mac n Cheese recipe: not yet
  6. Take a walk every work day: Nope - def a sign I was exhausted.

 

Adulting tasks:

  • Monday: Write out adult tasks, pay bills
  • Tuesday: Call leasing office (rent dispute), DATE NIGHT!!
  • Wednesday: Plan meals for next week (incl weekend lunch / dinner / breakfasts while dance partner is in town),Pick up target order, (& ice cream for next week), dance practice, Call leasing office again
  • Thursday: Pick up groceries, take pants to lululemon for hemming, type up draft ballroom routines, call chase about an old check, dance practice
  • Friday: order dance shirt / accessories, rebook houston travel for nationals for cheaper, take pants for hemming, go to bank branch, partnered dance practice
  • Saturday: book nationals hotel, partnered dance practice
  • Sunday:
    • Partnered dance practice
    • Dance technique class
    • Call parents
    • Prep meals

I misunderstood this at first, as if you had spent some unspecified period of time --- dramatically underdressed. Was wondering if the Sudafed had made you that loopy.

Yes! Welcome!

 

Weekend update: bruised my foot during workout on Friday morning (fell forward out of a shoulder stand and landed hard on my left foot - doesn't appear to be broken, just badly bruised (thank God) but it hurts to put weight on my left foot - y'all can imagine how fun that makes dance. Got through the weekend of 6 hours of dance lessons plus some practice - thankfully my partner was feeling pretty sick so we were both down for just doing the lessons and some reps to solidify our info from lessons. Going to play it by ear this week on the workout front, but I'm cautiously optimistic that things will work out just fine. Adulting tasks for the weekend mostly got done, if not on the scheduled day. Even worked ahead and booked my rental car for nationals already.

 

Also got to go watch one of my dance kids competing at a ballroom competition through her other studio - she was sooooo stoked to see me there and it was totes adorbs.

 

Adulting for this week:

Monday: Fold Laundry, pay bills, pick up pants from hemming

Tuesday: Call parents, pick up pants from hemming (backup)

Wednesday: Annual physical, ash wednesday mass, plan meals for the week

Thursday: Take out recycling, buy groceries (both opt)

Friday: n/a

Saturday: Write out training plans for coming week

Sunday / Monday (pres. day long weekend):

  • Prep meals for week
  • Pick up groceries (if skipped on Thurs)
  • Take out recycling (if skipped on Thurs)
  • Get a hair cut
  • Allergy shot
  • Call parents
  • Clothes for week (workouts, dance, work)
  • Clean apartment
  • Wash laundry
  • Fold laundry
  • Pack for next houston trip
  • Check out substitute gym for monday workout

Ya...I would've gotten ripped a new one if I didn't wear my proper shoes for lessons - that being said, I survived, got good info, and didn't snap at anyone out of pain - could be a lot worse.

Ugh, that sucks re: the bruised foot - glad it's not a worse injury! Just in case, I found an alternative dance routine for you:

Bahahaha love it! Also not that different from how I feel like I look sometimes on video ("WTF am I doing with my arms?" is a common question I ask myself).

Thanks! And yep, though this feels like a light week compared to all the things I piled on last week (minus the physical). The sunday / monday stuff looks like a ton but most of it is my weekly stuff (minus cleaning my apartment).

 

On the plus side, already got through most of my adulting for the day and it's not even second breakfast time yet!

 

Weekend calories and sleep didn't really happen. Adult tasks all did, all other challenge goals were N/a.

Alright, Week 1, Day 1 wrap-up:

  1. Comply with calorie and protein targets, figuring out weekends: Nope - ice cream binge
  2. Allocate 8 hours / night for sleep: Allocated 7:45, we'll call it good enough.
  3. Keep working out as scheduled: Yup - gymnastics rings and aerobic circuits. THE FOOT HELD UP TO JUMP ROPE, Y'ALL!!
  4. Do scheduled adulting tasks each week: Yep!
  5. Make another Mac n Cheese recipe: not yet
  6. Take a walk every work day: Yep!

Starting week 1 out strong - didn't eat within calories, but nailed the other parts of goals, even worked ahead a bit on some of the adult tasks for the week, which is a great feeling. Even managed a decent bit of dance practice without my foot screaming at me much - it's mostly just mad going in and out of shoes. Starting to feel hungry often, which is not encouraging - I'll try to be compliant into the weekend and then do a refeed over the weekend (which lines up nicely with heavy training volume days). Cut seems to be resulting in some visible progress (i.e. ab definition) even if the weight trend is super choppy (still at 176 today, which I hit 2 weeks ago - I'm guessing ice cream binges didn't help that one).

just remember you are hitting PRs and seeing visible changes to your body even if you aren't "compliant" to the calorie targets. you might be burning off more than you think?

True that - I think I'll adjust macro targets up this coming week, definitely noticing binges that suggest there's a need to consume more calories to stay sane (technically, the algorithm controls adjusting them - but I'll just consume at the higher end of tolerance instead of dead on-target this coming week if they don't change for a de facto +120 cals).
