It has been a challenging year for me and I am looking to get myself back focused on “me” .   Up till June I was doing so well....lost 10 lbs even...now that is all back on my ass and I am feeling it.... I can not get into the Challenge proper until August 12th ( have a animathon conference to attend this weekend out of town) but I will jump on in and get myself on Track adn hit this hard on Monday 12th . Here is my game.

 

1 - Three weeks ( till end of August) of cleanse diet followed by the rest of the time testing food back in– this is a non negotiable as I have developed ugly dermatitis on my arms and I think it helps to eat better.

 

2- Consistency with my workouts – Holly shit sticks this gets hard for me... I will play a bit with this during this challenge but I am aiming to get up and do early AM workouts Monday- Friday

  • My workouts are truly a mix of everything in my home gym deep down in the catacombs.  I want to get stronger faster and just better in my overall fitness by next spring……For this initial challenge I want to work out being more consistent that is all, the training plan will come later. Even if I roll out of bed and do 10 push ups - for this challenge i will count that as a win :)

 

Game Plan - I will update weekly

Monday – Clean Eating  & AM workout

Tuesday – Clean Eating  &  AM Workout

Wednesday – Clean Eating  & Am Workout

Thursday  - Clean Eating  & AM Workout

Friday – Clean Eating  & AM Workout

Saturdays  - Clean Eating  & Rest/Active Rest

Sunday – Clean Eating  & Endurance Workout

It was a lot of fun. I needed the break form reality. I have a family member with months to live and it is hard to watch them slowly drift closer to that vale every day. The con. was a nice distraction.

OK I had some issues, ok lots of issues...ended yesterday when I had to say goodbye to my dog of 15 years who was perfectly healthy  up to the end... so here is my less than impressive report card for last week....and so far most of this week....sad but true. At least i have room for improvement. the stress the last few days was just too much.

 

Clean Eating  5%

AM Workout = 2%

Endurance Workout= 0%

 

The 2019 year has not been kind to me at all I actually can not wait to ring in the new year in 2020.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. Don't bet yourself up about not getting your goals last week. SOmetimes it is the time to just grieve, and taking the time we need actually will set you up  for a healthier mental state later
