I have put two pieces of summer clothes away for the season… baby steps right??

 

This is DOUBLE the achievement of putting away one piece of clothing.

Week 3 – Thursday

 

Made it to the gym! LA Fitness again because we finally got our actual guest pass. wasn’t too bad – there were actually 2 other people deadlifting with me in awkward non-spaces

 

DL

95x5

110x5

120x5x3

 

Inverted rows

8, 10, 10, 10

 

Squats

95x5

105x5

110x5x3

 

EZ curls

50x5x5

 

Thursday and Friday were both very busy and stressful work days. I don’t even remember what I did Thursday night.

 

Week 3 – Friday

 

We decided to get the most out of our free pass to LA fitness and went again. I did accessory type stuff to compliment Thursday (and by “compliment” I mean “inflict all the DOMS on myself”)

 

Front squat

45x8

65x5x4

 

Underhand cable pulldowns

85x8

100x5x3

 

Farmers carries

25# DBs x90 steps

30# DBs x90 steps

30# DBs x100 steps

30# DBs x50 steps

 

RDLs

65x8x4

 

We went out to eat with a couple friends to an amazing Cuban tapas place. it was delightful. Stayed up a bit too late with the housemates but still got to bed right at midnight.

 

Week 3 – Saturday

 

I had a bit of a lie in and then got ready to take the pup to her vet appointment. We tried going shopping but didn’t have much luck and only got angry at the crazy amount of people there. we ended up going grocery shopping and finally watching captn marvel! very cute, but I couldn’t help think of her as an afterthought.

 

veggies: kale with lunch, salad for dinner

 

Week 3 – Sunday

 

5K in the morning! I was kind of grumpy but I did finish and mostly jogged. I’m slow AF but whatevs. we grabbed the free beer with our friend who had joined us and had a good time catching up. by that point I was very hungry, I don’t like to eat before races. Spouse and I grabbed burgers since I had a coupon for a free one this month for muh birfday!

 

We had a very sleepy ride home but powered through to get breakfasts batch cooked and laundry folded. we went out for coffee and also picked up Endgame (also finally).

 

unpacked THREE boxes with Spouse after the movie! finally figured out a place for our DVDs

 

veggies: a little bit of salad but mostly no vegs

 

week 3 scores!

Food: 2/3 weekend vegetables

Life: 3/1 boxes unpacked; 1/2 dad spend down

Fitness: 2/1 AM workouts, 0/1 PM yoga

Sleep: 3/3 midnight cutoff, avg 7h35m

 

no evening yoga last week but I did at least get it in twice in the mornings. I’m doing well on sleep and mostly everything else which is probably keeping me so sane! I really need to get going with pre-paid funeral costs for my dad and stuff though.

BOX CONQUERING!


Okay now you have me imagining CM taming three wild, savage boxes... they're circling her, looking hungry and snarling, but she brandishes a whip at them and they reluctantly settle down and spill their contents.

It's friday of week 4 and I haven't updated you all at ALL! work has been hectic but not toooo stressful like a week or so back. we signed up for a 7 day pass at a nearby Anytime but haven't gone to get it yet (they make you come pick up the key which isn't available until 11am most days).

 

sleep average is 7h46m so definitely still going strong there. I've gotten in movement on monday, tues, and wed mornings: half hour of yoga; 20 min walk; and 20 min bw circuit. we started packing for our ptown camping trip this morning. i haven't unpacked a box yet.

 

things haven't been great on the dad front this week and i spent a good amount of time crying on wednesday. so i'm going easy on myself for maybe a slow week goal-wise

So I made the decision to take a break from NF and instagram. Work has been busy and my dad's status got changed to hospice care about 2 weeks ago. I've been focusing more time on myself and the people around me. Let's take a look at how I did:

  • try two new gyms tried 3 different ones and think I'll pick the Anytime. it's the only one with a DL platform!
  • 1 morning workout/week - 14/5 well that was easy. might consider upping the length of at home BW workouts
  • 1 evening yoga/week - 3/5 i'll have to come back to this habit later
  • sleep: get an average of 7h30m - 5/5 weeks I hit the average, though last week I did not
  • eat vegetables, 3 per weekend - no idea but i remember being cognizant of it each weekend so that's good i guess
  • liquidate dad’s 401K - check
  • unpack some boxes - check, boxes are gone from my living and dining room except for one that's a donate box for the animal shelter
  • sell or donate some clothes - check, i sold 14 items on thredup and earned $48.66. i still have 41 items listed on there as well

actually not bad at all! yoga and vegetable, y u so hard.

 

the next few weeks are going to be tough and busy so I might reawaken my battlelog until I get back on my feet. <3

 

in better news, the David Harbour SNL episode was really good

I've rewritten this post about 18 times, but the words won't seem to come out right. I'm sorry for the hard road you're walking right now, and really impressed that you were able to accomplish a solid challenge throughout that. T, P and all the good vibes from me. Take care <3

 I missed that as well, and I'm sorry for that.

 

Sorry that you have to deal with all of that as well. Thinking of you.
