a simple challenge, Leimanu


Recommended Posts

Hi :) Doing a super-simple Challenge after a long time away.


1. Workout 3x/wk

- 2x during work week, 1x on weekend.

- plan out work week to for a morning workout before work 2x/wk

- No time goal, just workouty-stuff


2. Food prep on weekend for 2 breakfast and snacks.

- so bored with apple and nuts for snacks.  Find some FUN ones!

- grab and go breakfast for the 2 workout mornings


3. Track meals 4d/wk


4. 60s journal in am and pm, 4d/wk


Award for making it it to the end of challenge: buy an old school Star Wars or NASA t-shirt

(requirements: still posting by end of week 4, at least one of each goal a week)


Projects for challenge: 

  • Find my Fitness "Why"...rewrite my story
  • Write four blog posts 
  • Find and watch Star Wars


I haven't felt strong enough to fight the dark side for a long time....

It’s nice to see you back. What are you doing for workouts these days?

 Well hey, Sloth, thanks for remembering me.


My go-to workout is still FitnessBlender.  Now that's it's (slightly) cooler in FL, I want to get more walks in :)

Almost-First day of challenge!


For prep, I wanted a tracking system that I always have with me.  I'm still analog, so I picked my planner, made a separate section, and listed enough tick boxes for the weekly goals.


I also just watched this video for meal prep which is perfect for my challenge as it's meal prep for 4 days, has very little cooking, and is grab-n-go.  New snacks will be boiled eggs and trail mix with popcorn.  Then I'll write it up all pretty to put on the fridge.

Week 1 wrap-up   Yo, still here after one week.


I acted like a Jedi, but missed pretty bad on a few things




1. Workout 3x/wk ACHIEVED 

- 2x during work week, 1x on weekend.


2. Food prep on weekend for 2 breakfast and snacks. ACHIEVED

- loved the popcorn trail mix

- absolutely no interest in the premade meals.  Absolutely none.  What a waste of $ and food.


3. Track meals 4d/wk ; only on day this week.


4. 60s journal in am and pm, 4d/wk ; at least 3x in morning, 1x at night.


Find my Fitness "Why"...rewrite my story 

"I want to be a healthy, confident person."  A few times this week, I asked myself, "What would a healthy, confident person do?" It led me to waking up on time to workout before work, choosing a healthy dinner, and doing a full Bikram class one evening.

Not doing hot this week.  I didn't meal prep, not even making the trail mix snack bags, so there's no food plan everyday.  There's no meal journaling because I don't want to remember these bad choices.  I haven't done any workouts.  Yesterday morning, as I tried to get out of bed, I thought to myself, "What would a healthy, confident person do?" and fell back to sleep before the answer.


It's getting dire, though.  I feel so rolly-polly.  The word "heft" comes to mind a few times a day.  My knee hurts.  I woke up one day and my knee hurts.
