Wait, This is a Fitness Site, Isn't It? Tanktimus Gets Back to Work


Recommended Posts

That's a good question Parody Judge.

 

For most of the summer and the first part of what the calendar assures me is "Fall" fitness has taken a back seat in my life. Buying and moving into a house then becoming a parent within two months of each other can certainly lead to distraction. The thought has occurred to me that I now work for a Fitness Company (Our very own Nerd Fitness, where I am the admin for the forums), and at the heaviest weight I have ever been and have lost some of my strength and a lot of my endurance. Now, please understand, I'm not beating myself up for this, I simply recognize the irony. Having said that, I'm in a place where I want to re-prioritize fitness. Last challenge the baby came, and as I write this during week 5 of the previous challenge (rank hath it's privilege) Little Bit is 5 and a half weeks old. It's a challenge to work out with a baby, but I had been slacking before she got here, so she's no excuse. It's a matter of setting a goal and achieving it. So what are my goals?

Cook a bunch and continue with intuitive eating. I haven't lost weight yet with IE, but that's not the point. The point is to heal one's relationship with food and begin to listen to body signals of hunger and fullness. I'm in that stage right now, and have noticed I no longer eat boredom, and am beginning to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. Eventually I will focus on nutrition again. This isn't a SMART goal, but IE is, by it's very name, intuitive, so I'm okay with that.
 

For fitness, I want to work out three times a week. Each workout type will be it's own goal, because I want to do one of each type per week.

(Damn it, it's so hard to find KB gifs that aren't of sexualized women)

Anyway, I plan to do NF's Beginner Kettlebell Workout once a week. That would be five times for the challenge, six if I get one in during zero week.

(Wow, It was a lot easier to find nonsexualized Yoga gifs. It was mostly a bunch of stuff of people actually doing yoga)

Nerd Fitness has a Yoga program, and I bought it not long after it came out. It's very helpful. However, with the gain in weight and lack of practice, I'm not able to do as much as when it was a regular practice. Therefore, I plan on doing Yoga once per week. Any of the NF videos are fine, though it will likely be water A.

Ruck the baby. Little bit is still to young to face forward as in the gif. I'll be carrying her like this:Contours-Journey-5-in-1-Baby-Carrier_ZC0

That's actually the model we got from our registry from one of you fine rebels here ( you know who you are). I plan on going for a walk once a week with the baby strapped on. The stroller counts if I have to use it, but the carrier is preferred.

Is it a British thing, like where the floor above the ground floor is considered the "First" floor?

Baby ruck. Nice.

 

Bear in mind too, that once that soft spot firms up, it's less risky* to convert KB swings to Ba-By swings.

Rucking the baby, I think, is going to make the biggest difference. Looking forward to cheering you on.

BayBee bell workouts have occurred to me. And I used to work for Child Protective Services.

Glad to see the tankling is getting involved in fitness early. Perhaps she'll be a fitness instructor in the future?

Keeping up is another issue.

It's not so bad after zero week. Once everyone checks in it gets easier to follow.

So here for this, because I am in much the same boat- minus the house, wife and baby.

Ok, so I am ... on the same ocean, different boat!   A smaller boat!
