Tateman - It's my Birthday Challenge!

Recommended Posts

CC2ubTM.gif Chq18OO.gif 3qJSlqd.gif

 

Back for another challenge. It's my Birthday challenge! I turn 45 on November 2nd. Time to party hard! haha.

 

Time to get to business. The last couple of challenges, I have not finished very well at all. I have struggled, and my weight goals have not been met. Even though I though tit would be easy. I spent plenty of time being in not the greatest mental space over it all, but I think I have been digging out of that whole again. I took a look at why I wasn't losing weight, even though I thought I was doing well enough. Apparently, I had not been. ;)

 

So this challenge will have some changes to help get me where I want to go. In the "off week" I have been working on where I need to be with my food, and it seems to be working. The scale is moving in the proper direction again. Now time to build around the goals. I may not be able to hit 257 lbs by my birthday, or even 100 lbs down by my birthday. I will however just focus on getting off as much weight as I can, and becoming much more stronger, faster, and more healthier. 

 

My Goal this challenge, is to reach that 100 lbs gone this year. (11.5 lbs as of today to lose) I also want to increase my walking (maybe even running again), and get in all my exercise.

 

Goal#1 - Make sure you are in a deficit

Here it is, the big reason why I think I wasn't really losing weight. I wasn't eating in a calorie deficit. I had been tracking, but looking back, I had many days where I just wasn't hitting a deficit. Plenty of days I was over as well. As always, I will still eat Keto. I will stick to Intermittent fasting. I will also track in MyFitnessPal. Also trying out Chronometer for tracking. 

 

The big part of this will be how much of a deficit I try to get into. My target is 500. Then hopefully increase to 1000 as my steps and exercise increase.

 

Reach >500 calorie deficit in MFP = 5 points per day.

Bonus round: Reach >1000 calorie deficit in MFP = 5 extra points. (max 3 per week for now ;) )

 

35 points per week with bonus points bringing it to 50 points possible.

 

Goal#2 - Let's get some step goals.

OK, I tried for awhile now, not to focus on steps per day. This last week though, I have been pushing a little more and seeing it really help me get into that deficit in MFP :) I don't want to jump right in and say I need to hit 10k each day. Though that really is the eventual goal. I am going to try gradually increasing each week. Hopefully, I will already just be beating the goals, and I won't need to worry too much ;) I think I will also include a rest day. So I really need to worry about 6 days. I do want to give running a try again soon, but I will see if I get to it this challenge.

 

Week 1 - 6,000 steps per day

Week 2 - 6,500 steps per day

Week 3 - 7,000 steps per day

Week 4 - 7,500 steps per day

 

Bonus round! Hit 10,000 steps each day by week 4, add 20 points 

 

Goal reached each day = 5 points. 30 points per week. 

Bonus points = 20 if I hit 10,000 steps each day by the end of the challenge.

 

Goal#3 - Do The Workout

I've been slacking these last few weeks, but I know I can get in workouts. I am sticking with the NerdFitness Academy workouts for now. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the workout days. If I feel like I can do more, then I might try pushing other exercises in, or adding in more. I need to establish the habit of doing it on the workout days first. So that is really my focus. No excuses, no "I'll do it tomorrow" Just get it done on these days.

 

Workout M, W, F = 5 points per day, 15 total per week. 

 

Goal#4 - Zzzzzz

The sleep goal returns again. I've mostly been sticking too it, but have had a few off nights.I still have been considering trying to get to sleep even earlier, so I can try to hit that 8 hour mark. Maybe I will try it mid challenge or so. 

Off the computer by 10:30 PM (10:35 the latest) to read. = 2 points per day

Off to bed by 11:30 PM = 2 points per day

 

4 points per day, 28 points per week. 

 

I think that about covers it all. I wanted to make a goal to check in here, and blog. Really though, I just need to do it. I really wanted to focus all my goals on the eating and fitness. End of the year is almost here. I want to tackle it harder then I have these last few months :)

 

Points:

Week 1 (Oct 22 - Oct 28) - 71/108 = 65%

Week 2 (Oct 29 - Nov 4) - 90/108 = 83%

Week 3 (Nov 5 - Nov 11) - 81/108 = 75%

Week 4 (Nov 12 - Nov 18) - 0/108

 

 

Measurements: Day 1 / End of Challenge

Weight - 272.9 lbs /

Good on you, sounds like you're coming back strong! It's amazing how those food habits creep back in; I'm tackling the same thing this challenge. Sometimes it's good to go back to basics :D

Well, in week 0, I have lost 6.7 lbs this week. :) So focusing on the calorie deficit seems to be working out. I've also been walking each day. 

yV5gxMs.jpg

 

91.9 lbs gone this year now. 272.9 lbs today. I didn't get my other measurements yet though.

 

I also need to get in my workout. Plus bowling tonight. I did get out a walk after dropping off my son. 4,500 steps. I should hit that 6k goal easy enough with bowling.

Quick check in, because I am off to read!. I did not do body weight exercises on Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow, I need to do it though!

 

Goal#1 - Make sure you are in a deficit

10/22 MyFitnessPal – 1694 Calories, 19 net carbs. I had higher fat then protein, and my remaining calories was 827. So over my >500 mark.

 

I did polish off 2 quest bars yesterday. I had ordered the new peppermint bark bars. Before they came in, I had gone to a grocery outlet store. I found they were selling Quest bard for $11.99 a box. I found 3 Quest Hero bars for $0.99. I bought those three as well. I paid the price for 3, that I would pay for one at Target haha. Well, I at one Hero bar. Then later the peppermint bark bar came in. I have been waiting to try it, so I decided to go for it.

 

I did enjoy the peppermint bark bar, but I feel it was a little weak on the flavor. The peppermint flavor was there, but just not enough for me. Plus, when I think of peppermint bark, I feel more like a solid like chocolate. These are chewy. Still, I will enjoy eating them all. ;) Just felt they missed the mark just a bit.

 

 

Goal#2 - Let's get some step goals.

8,760 step yesterday. My goal this week is to be above 6,000 steps. Bowling helped out some here as well. 

 

Goal#3 - Do The Workout

Uh oh, no workout done!

 

Goal#4 - Zzzzzz

quI9tIg.jpg

 

11:42 PM to 7 AM. 6 hrs 45 mins. 16 x awake for 33 mins. I got in my reading, then headed off to bed. Temperature around here is fluctuating. Sometimes warm, but sometimes getting cooler. I have been waking up being too hot, then trying to get back to sleep.

 

So not a bad start. Only failed to really get my workout in. Today went well too, but I didn't work out. I want to stick with the M,W,F thing. So tomorrow is a must!

OK, quick update again, because I just didn't get on earlier haha.

 

Last night, I was bad. I read more then I should have, and went to bed late. It looks like I didn't hit my >500 range on eating either. I swear I thought i was there on my phone, but when I looked after dinner, I was at 418. Still, not bad, just not on goal.

 

So, little one is sick. Spent part of the day with him at the doctors. Probably just a cold hopefully. He has missed a few days already with higher fevers. He will be out tomorrow too.

 

With that, it throws my routine all out the window. Only because I let it really. So I didn't drop him off at school, which meant no walk after I dropped him off. When we got home, my thoughts weren't on getting in a workout, it was to find some food, because I was hungry. The wife stayed home too. We stopped at a Jersey Mikes and McDonalds. I avoided each one though. I knew I didn't have the morning walk and such. I didn't want to over eat for the amount I burned. Plus, I really don't like McDonalds. Even before I was eating Keto. Some things can work, but meh.

 

Then the wife wanted to catch up on a few shows. So, we did that.  I ate dinner, and played some World of Warcraft with some friends. After that though, I decided to get some steps in at least. No workout for today, but at least I could walk.

 

I walked up to the gym in our complex, and sure enough, 2 treadmills were in use. The third does not work very well. I had the moment of freak out, but then I just kept walking. Even though it was later out here, our apartment complex is lit well. I didn't walk the street side of the complex, but I did travel on the inward path. I don't know how long it is. Enough that one lap was a little over 500 steps for me. I did a few laps of that, then decided something. I wanted to test if I could run. I say run, but really it is a job haha ;). I didn't do the full lap I was walking. I turned by the pool to make a little bit shorter lap. I did two full laps of that. I felt like I could go more, but I didn't want to push too hard yet. No idea of distance, but hey I ran. I was pretty happy with that. I did two more normal laps of walking. In a small section of it, I wanted to test again. So, I ran. I ran fast. As fast as I felt safe running. It's been a bit. My sprint wasn't very long, but longer then I expected I could do. I only stopped, because I started to worry about pushing too hard and falling on my face. haha.

 

So there, I can run.

 

One of my biggest hurdles with running, is that I am still so fat. and well, fat bounces. Especially a fat belly. My little TMI, I am pretty embarrassed to run around people, but I got over it a bit before. I mean, when I go really hard, my belly claps for me. So hey, I have my own cheering squad haha.

 

Other good news, is that I am down 4 pant sizes. from 42 to 38s. The 42s I have, I had from the last time I got to the 260 lbs range. I don't recall them being super loose. The 38s I have now fit pretty well. So even with struggles in weight over the last couple of months, my body is changing. More TMI, I am a muffin top kind of pants wearer. Though the 42s I have, I can actually button up over my sagging stomach. Maybe soon I won't be muffin topping so much haha.

Super well done on the running! That's kind of how I started, out for a walk one day thinking, "I'm bored, this is taking too long, I wonder if I can go faster?" ;) It doesn't even matter how far or how fast, every little bit helps!

 

Also I totally sympathise with you on the jiggly tummy, mine does that too and it's not very comfortable. I don't know much about blokes' clothing but maybe you can find some tight running shorts or something to go under your regular clothes to give yourself some more support? Also, yay for smaller pants!

 

Good on you for not letting the routine go completely out of whack. Hope the little one feels better soon!

First off, I totally understand the personal cheering section. And I love calling it that than something else. But you RAN.. which is awesome. Just keep working on it.

 

Congrats on the smaller pants. That is always a great feeling.

 

Hope the weekend continued to see progress.

Thanks! My longest I have ever ran, was a 5k. I've been wondering how much I could run now. It has probably been 4 years since I last ran. Other then just a little bit of week 1 C25k earlier this year. I've been debating of doing a run on my Birthday to see how long I can go ;) We shall see.

Thanks! The week was ok, but a struggle a bit. Struggled with routine with a sick kiddo. Though, I could have got my stuff done.

 

Gonna pop up a summary post next. :)

So last week, I struggled a little bit. Littlest one was sick since Wednesday. Of course I have to use it as an excuse haha. Weight wise, I was doing ok, but Sunday a feeding frenzy hit me. So I way overate. Overall though 0.3 lbs lost still on the week. I am back on track the last couple of days.

 

jZ0bc2N.jpg

 

92.1 lbs this year so far. Got to get to that 100 lbs down! ;) It will come.

 

Goal#1 - Make sure you are in a deficit

This week, I decided to make a switch from trackers. I have been using My Fitness Pal forever. I decided to switch over to Chronometer now. Solo starting week 2 ;) Still, my burn numbers still apply. My calorie remaining budget needs to be >500. 

 

10/22 - 1706 Calories, 15.3 g net carbs. 1302 calories remaining 

10/23 - 1769 Calories, 14.3 net carbs.  807 calories remaining

10/24 - 1712 Calories, 13.5 net carbs. 657 calories remaining.

10/25 - 1662 Calories, 10.2 net carbs. 570 calories remaining.

10/26 - 1687 Calories. 16.2 net carbs. 1034 calories remaining.

10/27 - 1736 Calories, 18.5 net carbs 215 calories remaining

10/28 - 2263 Calories, 16.6 net carbs. 517 calorie surplus.

 

Had that over eating day, and was a little light on steps some days. 2 1000 days though, and 5/7 days were good.

 

25/35 points.

10 bonus points for 2 x 1000

 

Goal#2 - Let's get some step goals.

j74B5eL.jpg

My goal was to hit 6,000 steps each day. One day allowed for rest.

10/22 - 8,760 steps

10/23 - 8,275 steps

10/24 - 6,768 steps

10/25 - 3,324 steps

10/26 - 8,076 steps

10/27 - 1,728 steps

10/28 - 961 steps

 

So I had originally decided I would let Thursday be my day off, but then I let the weekend happen haha. Still, I was above my goal 4/6 times (assuming one day off)

 

20/30 points

No Bonus points

 

Goal#3 - Do The Workout

Well, this one I failed hard. I failed to get workout 1 done. Then it was easy enough to just keep passing on the workouts each day. Though, I did get my Monday workout done in week 2 ;)

 

0/15 points

 

Goal#4 - Zzzzzz

10/23 - 11:42 PM to 7:00 AM. 6 hrs 45 mins. 16 x awake for 33 mins - 4 points

10/24 - 1:21 AM to 7:57 AM. 6 hrs 2 mins. 15 x awake for 34 mins. - 0 points

10/25 - 12:00 AM to 9:22 AM. 8 hrs 8 mins. 19 x awake for 1 hr 14 mins. - 2 points

10/26 - 11:57 PM to 7:54 AM. 6 hrs 54 mins. 20 x awake for 1 hrs 3 mins. - 2 points

10/27 - 2:36 AM to 8:30 AM. 5 hrs 7 mins. 18 x awake for 47 mins. - 0 points

10/28 - 11:40 PM to 9:48 AM. 8 hrs 22 mins. 21 x awake for 1 hr 46 mins. - 4 points

10/29 - 11:33 PM to 7:00 AM. 6 hrs 55 mins. 15 x awake for 32 mins. - 4 points

 

So not so hot here either. I did get to reading each night, but not always on time. I knew my kid was going to be sick, and it was excuse enough to just stay up super late.

 

16/28 points

 

Week total. 

71/108 = 65%

 

Good thing I had some bonus points haha. Still, an ok week I felt. Week 2 is starting off well, I just need to make sure I continue with it all.

It is going ok I suppose. Though for whatever reasons, I don't get over here to post :( It's like I think "OK, time to get on and post" Then other things happen. Then It gets late, and I think it is too late to do it, I'll get it tomorrow. Then that turns into two weeks later haha.

 

So this week (since Wednesday) My son has had half days in school. All next week too. In an effort to save some gas, I am staying in the area. So no trips back home. Great for gas, not so great for me getting stuff done. I am walking, and getting in most of my step goals. This week has been no workouts though. I did get one workout done last week, but birthday, and hockey games helped to derail me a bit. I'm on my laptop now, but I feel like I can't quite get teh same type of summary post done haha. 

 

Hopefully, I can get something up soon.

Week 2 update

This week was my birthday week. Birthday was on the 2nd. I decided I wanted to see how far I could run. So on my birthday, I went to a track to jog it out. Only made it about a half mile, but better then I expected haha. That at least tells me, that I should be able to get back into this running again. Also had two hockey games to go to this week. But were fun. Went to them on the 2nd and 3rd. Eating went a little wild. Overate on my birthday. I've actually been having a few days where I feel like I really want to just keep eating. Only nlost 0.4 lbs week 2. I blame the over eating the couple of nights during my birthday weekend! ;)

I totally understand the whole "I will post in a minute... Wait, how did it become 3 hours later... now I don't have time, try again tomorrow... next week." This is happening to me most weekends currently.

 

Although I do understand the "hollow" days. Those days that it just feels like your never full no matter how much you eat. Hopefully you are having less of those.

 

Pop in when you can, I was just seeing how things were going. Happy late birthday. It sounds like you had a good time.

Alright. Jumping in on a Monday morning. :) No school today, so I can post from home in the morning. More on my Birthday weekend. Turned 45 :) Went to the San Jose Barracuda game on my birthday. My kid was asked to participate in the Limbo competition during first intermission.

VD9vMAsl.jpg j6LgtNtl.jpg

 

Here is the video if you care to watch. I would say he need to work on his form haha ;) He didn't win, but he had a blast doing it. Really cool to be down there too.

 

Then Saturday, it was Star Wars night for the San Jose Sharks hockey game. Of course we had to go there too ;)

Apparently they go all out ;) the Sharks and Flyers were written out int he Star Wars language too.

So, a ton of fun for my birthday weekend :)

 

I'll make my next post for this last week summary ;)

11/06 - 8960 steps. 78 active minutes.

11/07 - 8752 steps. 69 active minutes.

One day allowed off, 6 days needed to be above 7000 steps. I almost did that all 7 days ;) I was above 8000 steps the other days. This week, I am going for the 10000 steps a day bonus. I really need to push it though.

Well happy late birthday. I am glad to see you all had fun at both hockey games. Its awesome  that not only did you get asked to go down on the first night, but that the characters were there the second night.

I think the thing to focus on last week was you were still trending down and you are doing a fairly decent job. Keep up the hard work. You are doing great.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun :) They gave out tshirts too (of course one that won't fit for awhile ;) ) they were different versions. My section was the rebels. I wanted the dark side, but ahh well. haha.

Love your hockey game shots thanks for sharing! We had Star Wars night for the Reign last year and the coolest thing was a replica of R2D2. https://photos.app.goo.gl/BCDxv3zSqVadekz2A

Sounds like you had a great birthday and that your challenge is going incredibly well, congratulations!

 

Less than 5 pounds! You've got this!

 

3 pounds to go as of today! ;) will see if it holds out for the week, or I hit it the 100 lbs mark. A couple of years ago, the Barracuda had a star wars night where they gave out storm trooper jerseys. I wish I would have gotten one of those. This year, they had Hockey fights cancer night on my birthday, Usually they have a Star Wars night too, but I guess not this season. I didn't see an R2D2 out on  he concourse, but there was some there. We saw a guy packing one back up into a truck after the game. That R2D2 looks really cool. 

 

For the most part this week is going well. I didn't exercise on Monday. I wanted to do it yesterday, but didn't. So today I need to workout. I want to squeeze in 3 this week still, so that means today, Friday, and Sunday. I used Monday as my walking "day off". got in 6,000 steps. This week, the goal is to step it up to 7,500 steps. I am going full attack mode and shooting for 10,000 steps each day. 11,125 steps yesterday :)  Also trying to stick to 1600 or under Calories. At east the first couple of days so far.
