bker1370 Posted December 9, 2019 Report Share Posted December 9, 2019 Hello all, finally finding the time and focus to get a challenge written and posted. I suppose a short introduction is in order for those who don't know me. I am a single guy in my late 40s and live in southern Illinois in a small town in the middle of nowhere. I am the head grill cook at my local steakhouse. I have been on the forums for about 4 years now, since December 2015. I was pretty consistent for quite a while, but then my routine got majorly disrupted and I have been more hit and miss for the last couple of years. On December 23, 2017, the restaurant burned down and I have spent the last two years sort of in limbo working odd jobs for my boss to try to make ends meet until we could rebuild and get back to working normally again. Well, we finally reopened Monday of zero week and as expected things have been insanely busy. So this challenge will be simply about surviving the month until the reopening rush settles down into a more regular business pattern. My "goals" as such will basically consist of tracking a few things I have been tracking the last couple of challenges. Food. I will be tracking my calories and macros using a combination of MyFitnessPal for macros calories in and Fitbit for calories burned with an eye to making sure I am eating enough for the incredible amount of energy I burning at work. Walking. I will be tracking my miles walked (90+% done at work) using my Fitbit. I was Walking to Mordor and I need to check my status but I believe I reached Mount Doom just before Thanksgiving. Sleep. I will be tracking my sleep using my Fitbit with an eye to making sure I am getting enough rest to survive the craziness that is work right now. Now, zero week has been insane for me. Work has been roughly 90 hours this week.
