B'ker, 2nd verse same as the first

Recommended Posts

Well, the last challenge started off strong, but sort of fizzled on the BW exercises towards the end, although walking, sleep tracking, and calories were kept up with.  So, with a few minor modifications, we are going to try the same thing again.  The restaurant should reopen part way through this challenge and that may require changes to some items (most notably sleep schedule and eating schedule).

 

Walking

Continue with walking to Mordor tracking using Fitbit to count all movement.  If I maintain my current daily average for the year, I should make it to Mordor around the middle of December, and even if my average falls off somewhat should have no problem making by the end of the year.  The current average is figured at 5.08 miles per day and I need an average of about 3.85 to make it by the end of the year.

 

Eating

I managed to lose most of the weight I wanted to lose last challenge, it wasn't much (157.2 lbs down to 151.6 lbs with a goal of 150 lbs) but was a little more than I was happy with.  Now, I need to make sure I eat enough to maintain my weight and make sure it is at least reasonably healthy choices as I attempt a  little body recomposition as a little too much of the weight is gathered around the waist for my liking.  I will be posting not only calories but MFP reports of what I have eaten in an attempt to make sure I am not under-eating or overeating and that I am making healthy choices (at least for the most part).

 

Sleep

Sleep tracking will continue with the addition of attempting to get to bed earlier more regularly (at least until the restaurant reopens and then the schedule will likely require adjustment of going to bed later and getting up later).  With the goal of at least 7 hours of good restful sleep each night (more, of course, is better).

 

Body Weight Exercises

This is where things kind of fell apart last time, so going to make some minor adjustments.  Going to definitely continue with pushups and situps, undecided yet on squats but probably continue planks as well.  However, I think I need more recovery time so going to aim for 2x/week instead of 3x and going to rest the program back to Week 3, Day 1 and pick up from there.

Well, I have been neglecting my own thread it seems--end of week 2 and I haven't posted since the first one lol. Since I have fallen so far behind on updating, I will try to make this a brief summary of the past 3 weeks but as it will probably still be long I will spoiler it for those who don't wish to read the whole thing.

Eating

I will be posting not only calories but MFP reports of what I have eaten in an attempt to make sure I am not under-eating or overeating and that I am making healthy choices (at least for the most part).  Not doing well on the healthy choices, or at least not as well as I would like.   Also, matching calories in to calories out has been hit or miss.  Too many days of reports to post all the MFP reports at this point, will do better going forward.

Once again, this has been the week point of the challenge.  I have only managed pushups a few times and no other exercises.  I will get a second day of pushups done shortly and might get situps in as well (just had late breakfast/early lunch so how soon I do situps will depend on how quickly food settles lol)

Thanks, EG.  Most of my tracking is pretty much automatic these days, and the steps are ramping up as we get closer and closer to reopening the restaurant.

 

Sleep last night was 7:17

 

Planned on doing pushups this morning, but was feeling a little under the weather when I woke up.  Felt better as the day went on, but by the time I made it back home was too tired.

 

Calories are going to work out to just about even for the day, 3119 in, currently 3072 out with several hours to go before reset at midnight.

 

Walking was 8.73 miles today, reaching a new milestone on the walk to Mordor!

Finish Faramir's Food

"Even if all goes well, I could hardly reach the mountain in a week.  I am afraid, Sam, that the burden will get very heavy, and I shall go still slower as we get nearer."

 

Sam sighed.  "That's just as I feared," he said.  "Well to say nothing of water, we've got to eat less, Mr. Frodo, or else move a bit quicker, at any rate, while we're still in this valley.  One more bite and all the food's ended, save the Elves' waybread." 

 

"I'll try and be a bit quicker, Sam," said Frodo, drawing a deep breath.  "Come on then! Let's start another march!"

Preparing to open the restaurant continues, the main thing today was receiving and unloading all the tabletops (legs came last week and are already assembled).  Tomorrow will be putting the tables together.

 

Walking totaled up to 8.63 miles today.

 

Calories are looking good, although food choices have not necessarily been the best.  Calories should be pretty even by midnight.

Sleep last night was 8:01.

 

Pushups were done yesterday, so were not planned for today.  Other BW exercises have not been done, and I think I may write them off for this challenge (3-4 BW exercises may isn't "easing back in" after all LOL).

 

Put together a little over half of the tables for the restaurant today, will probably finish them tomorrow.  I will find out what else we are doing after those are finished.

 

Walking today was 7.35 miles bringing total Walking to Mordor distance is 1,693.95 miles,  4.3 miles to next milestone (Sam spots Gollum) and 95.05 miles to Mount Doom.

 

Calories in vs calories out are questionable today, although food choices were better.  It will depend on how much is BMR uses up in the approx, 3 hours.

Today was a pretty good day.

 

Sleep last night was 7:35.

 

After I took care of the boss's dog (one of my temporary responsibilities), we loaded a few things from his house to take to the restaurant.  Then I went and unloaded the stuff at the restaurant, then several of the new hires showed up to work on cleaning up some of the construction mess.  After some cleaning, we finished putting the rest of the tables together and then began arranging them and the chairs.  After lunch (meatloaf made with one of Tank's recipes), I went back to the restaurant and was just hanging out until the workmen left in case someone came in to pick up or drop off an application.  Then I went back and walked the dog again, then ran to Wal-mart with my niece to pick up a few things.

 

Walking today was 8.25 miles in total.

 

Calories in vs. calories out is looking pretty good right now with pretty good food choices.

Week 3, Day 6 - Saturday

 

Sleep was 7:47

 

I went out and took care of the dog, came home and had breakfast.  Then I went to the restaurant and worked with another group of the new people and one of the few returning employees on more cleaning (construction has created what appears to be an endless supply of dust everywhere).  We worked there until early afternoon, then came home and had lunch.  During lunch, one of my gaming group texted to see if we were on for that evening.  I agreed as scheduling has been hit and miss lately.  I straightened up the living room and made sure game supplies were ready, then went out to take care of the dog for the evening.  While I was there, the boss decided we needed to do some rearranging of things he had stored in his barn/shed.  So we spent a little while doing that before I came home and met the guys for gaming.  We finished the current scenario and wrapped up a little earlier than usual.  Then I had a late supper and relaxed a little before heading to bed.

 

Walking was 5.97 miles, reaching next milestone - Sam Spots Gollum

 
 
 
 
Quote

Sam crept out, and flitting from stone to stone with more than hobbit-care, he went down to the water-course, and then followed it for some way as it climbed north until he came to the rock-steps were long ago, no doubt, its spring had come gushing down in a little waterfall.  All now seemed dry and silent, but refusing to despair Sam stooped and listened, and to his delight, he caught the sound of trickling.  Clambering a few steps up he found a tiny stream of dark water that came out from the hill-side and filled a little bare pool, from which again it spilled, and vanished then under the barren stones.

 

Sam tasted the water, and it seemed good enough.  Then he drank deeply, refilled the bottle, and turned to go back.  At that moment he caught a glimpse of a black form or shadow flitting among the rocks away near Frodo's hiding place.  Biting back a cry,  he leapt down from the spring and ran, jumping from stone to stone.  It was a wary creature, difficult to see, but Sam had little doubt about it; he longed to get his hands on its neck.  But it heard him coming and slipped quickly away.  Sam thought he saw a last fleeting glimpse of it, peering back over the edge of the eastward precipice before it ducked and disappeared.

 

Calories came in a little high but not bad.

Week 3 Day 7 - Sunday

 

Sleep was 7:24

 

Sunday was a pretty good day.  I took care of the dog, then did some domestic rangering,  put laundry away, did up dishes, and did some meal prep (chicken alfredo, roasted broccoli, roasted potatoes).

 

Walking was 4.50 miles

 

Calories were a little on the high side due to a low calorie expenditure from low mileage day.

Monday - Week 4 Day 1

 

Sleep was 7:06.

 

Monday was a pretty good day.  I went out and took care of the dog, then went to the restaurant and spent a pretty chill day doing minor tasks (a little sweeping and mopping, helping the electronics unpack things he was installing, cleaning ductwork, etc.)  After taking care of the dog in the evening, I returned to the restaurant to work with some of the new hires to continue cleaning up.

 

Walking was 8.70 miles reaching a new milestone, Sam and Frodo Join Orc March.

Quote

Sam held his breath.  Now more than half the line had gone by.  Then suddenly one of the slave-drivers spied the two figures by the road-side.  He flicked a whip at them and yelled: "Hi you!  Get up!"  They did not answer, and with a shout he halted the whole company.

 

"Come on, you slugs!" he cried.  "This is no time for slouching."  He took a step towards them, and even in the gloom he recognized the devices on their shields.  "Deserting, eh?" he snarled.  "Or thinking of it?  All your folk should have been inside Udun before yesterday evening.  You know that.  Up you get and fall in, or I'll have your numbers and report you."

 

They struggled to their feet, and keeping bent, limping like footsore soldiers, they shuffled back towards the rear of the line.  "No, not at the rear!"  The slave-driver shouted.  "Three files up.  And stay there, or you'll know it, when I come down the line!"  He sent his long whip-lash cracking over their heads, then with another crack and a yell he started the company off again at a brisk trot.

 

Calories came in somewhat low.
