.TIFF 1.0 - Base Programming


.TIFF

Recommended Posts

So I wrote up a bunch of stuff last week for this and then didn't touch my computer once I got home to start it properly.  I have been MIA for a while, mainly due to the fact that I couldn't seem to even think of goals I wanted to tackle let alone put them down and keep up with them on here.

 

Yesterday marks week 23 of my pregnancy, and I am happy to say things are going well and all is normal this go around :)

I have however also stopped working out, haven't been to the gym this whole pregnancy and as I get further along I know I need to start getting a bit more in my routine.  I have at least been trying to get walks in at work, as well as getting the house ready for a kid, so not all has been lost.

 

Time to get back to some basic habits and start getting prepared for the big change come June.

 

 

 

For the next 5 weeks I want to get this done:

 

2 workouts in per week - can be upper/lower/full body, don't care just two days where I do a fitness thing.

4 days of 30 min of increased heart rate, my Doc's only restriction is max hr of 143, so very boring cardio it is. (putting furniture together for the nursery/major cleaning also counts)

Eat fruit/veggies every day.  While my diet hasn't been terrible and I am gaining weight at a healthy pace I need to make sure I am getting veggies in.

My not so fitness but kind of related goal is to work on my pre bed routine so that my mornings start off a bit easier/better, so I will be setting my alarm for 9:30pm and that will be my "get your shit together for tomorrow alarm". 

 

 

Pretty damn simple, mainly because I need to make everything a habit again.  Terry always has your back with fitness so he is my spirit guide for this round.

So far so good this week. 

 

Got my walk in and helped the Mr. get the crib upstairs yesterday so he can put that together today.

 

Veggies were on the low end Monday, but I basically skipped lunch and we had breakfast for dinner.  I at least got a decent amount of protein in which was difficult at the start of my pregnancy.

 

Today I'll be taking some time to do some bodyweight work and light KB arm exercises to see how sore I am the following days and help gauge where I'm at.

 

Didn't make my 9:30 get ready for the day thing happen last night, mainly because I crashed early which I'll allow right now considering the circumstances, lol.

Still on track with things overall, though my next day prep still eludes me.

 

Tuesday I made myself veggie stir fry with egg over rice for dinner, and last night we made homemade stroganoff and I chopped up a cucumber salad to have with it.

 

Yesterday I got a couple short walks in but it was too warm and sticky to enjoy my usual longer walk around lunch time, and I didn't get in my first workout but I'll be tacking that today.

 

To tally things out so far this week:

 

Walks - 2 of 4

Workouts - 0 of 2

Fruit/Veggies every day - 3 days

So this weekend I got myself to my first Barre class, I read that it was a good choice for pregnant ladies and found a groupon.  While it was completely out of my normal realm everyone was extremely nice, it kicked my ass (need to wear my fitbit to better watch my HR this week), and I'm not so sore that I hate my life.

 

These classes will be my workouts for the remainder of this challenge :)

 

Last weeks final scores:

 

Walks 4 of 4

Workouts 1.5 of 2 (I did a BW workout but it was rushed and kinda lame so only half credit)

Veggies, not sure the exact count but it was at least 5 of 7, so pretty decent.

 

I also managed to set out my clothes for today last night before bed, and the Mr. and I had a super productive Sunday.  The downstairs nesting marathon is almost complete :)

This week has been going well, though I wasn't getting enough veggies still and my hunger is increasing (normal at this stage from what I am reading).  After snacking on too many sweets during work yesterday I stopped at the store and picked up fresh veggies, yogurt dressing, and popcorn.  Had a salad plate of fresh veggies with 2 tbs of the yogurt dressing and a few olives with my sandwich for lunch today, so my plan worked at least for today.

 

I have taken walks every day this week, and today is my first Barre class of the week.  I also charged my fit bit so I can keep a better eye on my heart rate during the workout.

 

I also gave myself a head start for the morning twice so far this week, didn't manage it last night but I also worked from home today so only needed comfy pants :D

I am still here, and alive, and doing fairly well with my goals :)

 

This past week was a bit of a mess, and today the family and I decided to cancel my baby showers up in MI since it required me traveling so I am pretty bummed about that.

 

I also failed the first glucose test for gestational diabetes so I need to go back Monday for the 3 hours one.  I have been eating way too much sweets so after that phone call yesterday I sat down and made myself a proper meal plan structure.  Tomorrow we shop for supplies (mainly cottage cheese, plain yogurt, berries/citrus, and veggies), and the Mr. is on board on making sure we get veggies in for dinner every night.

 

I am staying away from the Barre class as an extra precaution since they have shut down most of Orlando in general, at least until we know if my risk is increased with the test on Monday.  I did wash 3 pit bulls today though which totally counts as exercise, lol.

4 blood draws and 2 days later and I can happily say I don't have the baby beetus!

We started working from home at my office, which meant me switching to a different program than the one I have been comfortable with for the past 10 years.  Fortunately I used it before while in school and I have an awesome co worker that has been a ton of help getting back up to speed.  It has allowed me to get a bit of extra rest, ill be saving about 30.00 a week on tolls, and I don't require pants!  But I'm sure my steps have gone down, and I need to focus more on getting a bit of exercise every day...  It's just already so miserable outside.

 

This weekend due to the impending apocalypse we are going to try to grab some vegetable plants from home depot or a nursery and plant them, so that will be at least a bit of a workout.

Nice way to adapt!
