In Between: Tanktimus Doesn't Give up While Waiting for the New Year


Recommended Posts

As the title implies, this challenge is about losing as little as possible while I wait for the new year. With a new baby, finding a routine has been a challenge, and I need routine to develop consistency with workouts. It's a fool's errand to try and generate consistency and routine at this time of year, so I've given myself permission to wait till the new year to try and set up a new routine. I am not, however, giving myself permission to quit. I've posted this challenge to keep myself mindful of the fact that something is better than nothing, and I will populate this December with as many somethings as I can. As such, I'm going to try and get as many hits as possible on my list of Good Things (as it pertains to health and fitness, there are many more good things than what's listed below).

 

Tank's List of Good Things:

Intuitive Eating

Cooking

Kettlebells

Yoga

Baby Rucking

No worries either 😸

That list has no sleep goal. Are you sure you have a baby in the house?

Believe it or not, she slept through the night last night. If we put her down around 9 or so, she tends to wake up in the night (but usually only once). If we put her down around 10 or 11 she will often sleep till we need to get up. It's not the 12 hours they get if you train them for sleep (and that usually starts around 3-6 months) but it's not sleep deprivation either.

You are completely right. This would be a rough time to try to start new routines. Better to embrace the season and shape it a bit to keep an eye on some of your bigger goals.

Yes I also give myself time to plan a winning strategy. 3 weeks is enough time to set myself up for victory.

Glad to have you!

 

Today is a good day! After church we came home and I made lunch. I cooked ground pork, garlic, and the white part of green onions in sesame oil. When they were done I added the green part of the green onions, ginger paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and cole slaw (unsauced). When the cabbage wilted I added fresh chopped basil. I served it with roasted broccoli (sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce and rice vinegar on the broccoli).  We then started decorating for Christmas. We even went to the hardware store to get some outdoor stuff. Right now it's just a couple of net light sets for our bushes and a string of multicolored lights. We can add a little every year. The tree is up and lit, but we still need to decorate. However, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Excellent. Not giving up is good. Something is definitely better than nothing. And Christmas is not the season to set rigid rules and then flagellate yourself for not meeting them. Unless you enjoy a bit of Christmas flagellation. I don't. But if I did, swatches made from Christmas tree branches would be perfect. Not that that's relevant in any way.

You certainly have devoted a lot of thought to this, haven't you? ;)

Hi Tank! Here for support and cheering along!

I realized I haven't been updating about Little Bit as much. She spent most of last week fussy, either from early stages of teething, a growth spurt, or both. Yesterday seemed to be an improvement. She is also just beginning to fit into 6m sizes (the average a 6 month old Baby would wear) and out of her 3m sizes, and she doesn't turn 3 months until Thursday! We took the bottom half of the infant inserts out of her car seat too.
