Mr_Willes: The 2-week challenge

... the first part, which always is the easies part, of this new journey is over!

 

I'm now 3 weeks i'm into my new regime. Which is working pretty good. Only problem is that right now, it feels like my weekends are sabotaging all of my hard work during the week (well not completely, but it really is not helping on motivation).

 

And this little dip isn't really coming at a convenient time. Upcoming weekend we planned our annual "Boys-Out-Weekend". Which usually consists of much eating and drinking. Then right after that, we booked a mid-week vacation with family, my mom MIL and FIL. Which, you guessed it, will probably mean not so stellar eating and drinking.

 

I really need a battle-plan, otherwise all my hard work from the last 3 weeks will be completely in vain.

I don't want to make a battle-plan that's set up for failure. So what have i gathered in my toolbox on things to counter this week of mayhem...

 

  • Delay drinking to a certain time (9 PM) (with an exception for dinner time)
  • Work out every day
    • every other day a switch up a long run / short run
  • Eat no:
    • sweets / cookies
    • puff pastry stuff
    • potatochips / salty nuts
  • Keep regular regime for breakfast / lunch

 

Other lifehacks are welcome, so if you have any ideas, please, let me know!

 

Again, checking in will be mandatory every week at least once, but since this is a 2-week challenge (and a 3 week challenge) i will probably update a few times more.

 

I'm gonna be super strict right up to friday evening (when weekend with the boys starts). So i will kickstart it right!

Yesterday i wanted to go running but we had an appointment at school.

 

Spoiler

 

My oldest is having a hard time keeping up with the rest of his class (even though he did the previous year twice). But we are keeping a close eye on him and his progress. I'm pretty sure we are going to have to search for another, more specialized, school for him. First part of the new school year basically is repeating what they did last year (and he did twice). But the teacher is already concerned he can't keep up. He just doesn't learn as fast as the rest of his friends. He does get better, which is proven by the tests he is making, only not advancing at the same pace.

 

It's mostly the theoretical stuff, reading/writing/math. He is a very pleasant and happy person and he really easily makes friends and has a warm heart. So now we are looking at a school which has no conventional learning system, but puts the kids in different small groups based on how far they are. Which means you get a mix of older and younger kids all which are all more or less on the same level. And there are different groups for reading / writing / math / etc.

 

I think it will be a perfect fit, and exactly what he needs to make the best of his infant years. But it saddens me he can't finish school where he started, where all of his friends are (at the moment). On the other side, he is a very easygoing boy and makes friends quite easily. So that is the least of my worries. I just want him to have the best childhood possible, with the best options open for him.

Okay, it has been quite a busy week. I just came round to going for a run first time this week on thursday! I set out for 7k which worked out

 

image.png.cb067fbeab57ffb2ce0f96027f6e07b7.png

 

But part of my battleplan was to get some extra runs in, so this morning fresh out of bed i put on my running gear. Just took the kids to school, and when i'm finished with this post i'm gonna put in another small run (5-7k, depending on how i feel since i already ran last night).

 

That's it. Later dudes and dudettes!
