Hello visitor.

 

For those who don't know me, mandatory background info:

 

Spoiler

My name is Siferiax, or Sif, or Siffy, or... be creative!

I'm a female and 30 years old. I have a boyfriend and two cats.

I'm working within the limitations of autism & hypermobility (the moment flexibility SUCKS)

 

I love road cycling and spinning. I also love walking.

I unfortunately have quite a road cycling trauma I have to get over at the start of every season.

 

I made a false start with a walking goal last year. The idea was to walk every single weekend for the entire year.

Hypermobility basically ruined it and it ended up with me unable to walk for more than 30 min.

I got shoe soles and special physical therapy and I'm happy to be able to say I CAN walk again.

 

Unfortunately my problems with cycling haven't been resolved yet. I'm still working with specialists to get it resolved. Right now I do spinning for at least 20 minutes. Sometimes it goes well and I go for longer and sometimes it doesn't.

I have been doing more spinning though. Right now I'm trying for Tuesday, Thursday and once on a weekend day.

 

As for diet I'm currently focusing on Intermittent Fasting (IF) and no snacking. I'm otherwise eating whatever I want.

This has to do with my mental health in part and my sanity as another part. I'm a very picky eater and I dislike a lot of common foods. And ESPECIALLY I can't take anything spicy/hot/sharp/whatever you wanna call it. And with anything I mean not even in the slightest. Which is a challenge all it's own.

 

Here are my goals this challenge. I'm doing a bare minimum because I've just been "done/tired" with everything lately.

My mental health is not quite up there, so I take it easy for a bit.

 

#1 No Snacking

- No snacking on weekdays
- A snack is anything not part of a meal (max 3 meals a day)
- Fruit and nuts are not counted
- A deep fried cafeteria snack is still a snack, even if it's eaten with lunch

 

#2 Intermittent Fasting

- Every day for at least 15 hours (up 1 hour from last challenge)

 

#3 Cardio

- 3x a week
- Walking / Cycling / Spinning
- At least 5 km or 20 min

 

I've decided to do my fitness goal slightly different, mostly more relaxed and have me stressing a lot less.

The important thing is that I do exercise 3x a week, doesn't matter whether that is on a bike or on my own feet.

IF is gonna be challenging again. Last challenge I did manage 100% at 14 hours though, so I'm feeling confident!

 

That's all there is to it. I generally use this thread to journal. I also post challenge updates reguraly.

This challenge I will use Track your fast and Habit Bull for tracking. This in place of my handy spreadsheet.

I have been loving Intermittent fasting. I have done it off and on in the past. It makes me more aware of when I am actually hungry, and not just my brain trying to get me to eat something because it is there. Good luck this challenge!

I'm loving IF too. Mostly to train myself that I can actually go without food. That I don't need it all the time. Plus it seems that I'm slimming down, not losing weight though lol.
Thanks!
