No longer a beginner

Recommended Posts

So, coming off the success of my first ever challenge I'm going straight into challenge #2.

 

My main aim is to get control of my life and health. Easy, it's just 2 things! :-D

 

I started really nicely with challenge one, found a good rhythm at the gym and learned a lot about my eating habits. 

 

Therefore... 

  1. Go to gym twice per week

  2. Don't eat if not meal time.  Ie not in front of telly, not with board games et

  3. Attain Level 3 of nerd fitness diet (No liquid calories <I will allow myself milk with tea,  I mean I am British!> Reduce carbohydrates at dinner to none)

  4. Book at least one bank shift per month

They are relatively simple yet challenging enough that I will feel stretched. I think I'll have a "soft opening" this week and warm up into the challenge!

Heyyo, a Level 2 fellow!

 

Haha, tea! I am [part] Chinese so I love tea as well. Good luck with your challenge!

Soooo... It's the start of week 2 and I have to say this is just a confession post. 

 

I spent a week with partner, kids and friends in center parcs last week. For those not in the know it's a weird holiday park with utopian aspirations. It also has a pool!

 

The days were spent lounging by the pool and the evenings were spent playing stressful boardgames (pandemic legacy 2 anyone?)  Cue failing at points 1,2 and 3.

 

I didn't go to the gym at all,  I snacked every night with games and I drank sugary fizzy drinks that were pleasant but definitely not necessary... 

 

I have however booked some shifts at work, so small tick. 

 

Obviously holidays are different,  routine is what makes us able to do things we find difficult. I'm hitting back this week with a vengeance. I will go to the gym. I will cut out liquid calories. I will not eat my bodyweight in snacks, no matter how stressful the game! 

 

Solid D- must try harder
