Terah - Finding the beat

A new challenge already?! Where does the time go?

 

My days have been busy since September. Time goes by so fast and every day I feel like I've been running around all day, with nothing much to show for it. I'm starting to get into a rhythm, and this challenge I'll add some new moves to this rhythm to turn it into a dance :D 

giphy.gif?cid=3640f6095bc45933444e42762e

 

 

Quest 1: Nutrition

Eat clean, listen to my body. 

So little to no processed foods, make as much as I can at home. Eat when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full. 

 

Quest 2: Exersise

Continue dancing, obviously. Add more lifting. In this I need to keep listening to my body. Give my body time to heal if necessary, but keep challenging myself.  And adding some yoga workouts at home, in addition to the one yoga class I do every week. 

 

Quest 3: Expand on the rhythm 

Status quo: 

Morning: Work on my business (making orders, answering e-mail and such), put on a load of laundry, empty the dishwasher

Midday: Go to school to watch the kids while the teachers have their break, eat lunch, pick up kids from school

Afternoon: Help kids with their homework, take them to their sports clubs, music lessons, PT and speech therapist, make dinner

Evening: Crash on the couch Monday, Thursday and Friday. Go exercising on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

 

What I want to add this challenge:

- Home workouts where I lift or do yoga. My ideal is to do this every evening. But I will keep listening to my body and rest when I have to.

- Add some more chores somewhere. Maybe some afternoons? I'm not sure yet. 

 

Just one week until fall break. I've planned as little as possible during this break, so I'm hoping I'll be able to rest up and get stuff done around the house that I've been procrastinating on. 

 

Let's get dancing!

Woooooow! Your challenge is basically everything I hope to achieve in the next months/year!

I'll be following and cheering (although you clearly already have loads of cheerleaders ^_^)

I'd like to join the Druids next challenge, with a dance-based challenge, so I'm also here for inspiration!

Monday 

My good intentions came to an abrupt end when my dinner didn't want to stay in my stomach and I had to retreat to the couch with a bucket. 

The rest of the day was pure perfection. But I didn't get my evening workout in. 

 

My stomach is still a bit sensitive this morning, but I'm feeling a lot better. And I WILL go to zumba tonight!

Was there a containment breach or did you manage to keep it down? I hope you figure out what caused it and can prevent it in the future.

Whahaha, yes unfortunately there was a containment breach. No idea what caused it, but I have a few theories I'm testing.

Tuesday

I didn't eat much, but I could get enough down to keep me going. Got a bit nauseous again in the afternoon, but it passed quickly. 

I went to zumba and dancehall class and had a great time :D One of the ladies secretly got married in vegas last weekend, another just got her drivers licence and a third had moved to France last year and came to visit <3 

 

The rhythm was strong this day!

Wednesday - Sunday 

I backslided completely. Got back into kcal counting, obsessing over food and binge eating (although not as bad as it used to be). I deleted MFP again and I am working my way back. 

 

I read the newest article from Steve and something clicked: I am a druid, I identify witb every aspect of it. Why am I trying to lift weights? I don't like it very much, and get way too obsessive with increasing the weight load to a point that I am sore for days after each workout. I love dancing and yoga, why not stick with those as my workouts? 

So I am changing my lifting goal for a yoga goal. 

 

I am trying really hard to get back on the right track, so keep those dance gifs coming ;)

Support is here! :D I'm sorry to hear that you had a tough moment, but you can totally make it back. The things you're saying about identifying as a Druid really resonates with me right now, and I'm thinking of embracing my Druid side more. We are free to do whatever we want with our goals...! I think it's also about embracing our authentic self instead of trying to become something we think we should be. I'm gonna put up my own challenge soon-ish, with a similar theme. Happy to follow you again!

Wise Terah is wise. There is no point wasting energy on fitness activities you don't like.
