Nesting: Tanktimus and Sra. Tanque prepare for Baby Tank


Recommended Posts

I had plans for rebuilding my fitness and nutrition habits starting with this challenge, but then I realized the baby's due date is the last day of the challenge. She may come early or late, but any habits I try and start are going to need adaptation when the baby comes. So my goal is to be as healthy as possible for this period of five weeks. I want to re start workouts, and be consistent with taking lunch to work instead of eating at the cafeteria. 

When the baby comes, I plan on taking five weeks off, which would make workouts easier if it weren't for the fact that we will be dealing with newborn sleep deprivation. That five weeks off from work will overlap with the challenge after this one. That means the one in October is the one to start intentionally rebuilding habits.

 

That is not, however, an excuse to hit cruise control till then. That kind of thinking does not lead to Healthy Tank. So I will still have goals for this challenge.

 

Goal 1: Take lunch to work 15 times. There will be 20 work shifts during this challenge (provided the baby doesn't come early), so that gives me some wiggle room. 

 

Goal 2: Workout 5 times. I'm respawning here, so let's not get crazy.

 

Goal 3: Get the boxes unpacked and the house set up before the baby comes.

I see all that browser refreshing paid off. The nice thing about babyweight exercise is that as the baby grows you are lifting heavier and heavier.

Great plan Tank!     Though, I'd offer the idea that cruise control is okay, but coasting is not. ;)   Engine is still engaged while cruise controlling hehe.   But I totally get what you mean, and I approve.

I told Sra. Tanque my paternal instincts are coming to the fore because when the kids at church performed something from Vacation Bible School yesterday morning I thought it was cute instead of being annoyed.
