A little late to the party, but figured I'd jump in now anyway.

 

I've been kicking my heels at home for the last three weeks now.  One contract ended, and considering the general situation in the UK at the moment it's not very surprising that I couldn't get a new one immediately and therefore I am currently unemployed.  I'd love to say I've been making the most of things and being productive, but the time has mainly invovled getting up later, drinking lots of coffee, almost doing lots of things I've been meaning to get round to, and reacquainting myself with my Xbox.  Our drinking habits have also tended towards the upper limits of British levels, and my snacking has spiralled somewhat...

 

Yesterday I weighed myself and measured my waistline, revealing that I have nicely undone all the progress I had finally started making over March.  So I decided to make a change and introduce some structure back into my days, and this seems like the perfect place to keep me on track with it all.

 

1) Exercise daily - The plan is to do bodyweight workouts at home 3x a week, with a decent walk on the other days (we're allowed out for exercise once daily).


2) Track my food & drink - I don't want to get into a full MFP routine if I can possibly help it, but listing/photographing the various snacks & meals should help with making my think about exactly what I'm shovelling into my mouth.

 

3) Learning - every week day I am doing at least one Data Science lesson on Codecademy, and at least one Spanish lesson.  That's the bare minimum - ideally I'll get more than these done.

 

Starting point: 121.0kg & 48" waist.

 

That's all I can think of for now, but I might keep these goals and add something to them on the next challenge if it goes well.

So here's a bit of an update so far:

 

Monday

 

1) Exercise daily - There's a guy in the UK called Joe Wicks - The Body Coach and he puts out tonnes of free content at the best of times.  Since the schools got cancelled here he's been live streaming a daily 30min PE lesson on his YouTube channel at 9am (BST), and he also put up a new HIIT workout video recently - this is what I tried this morning.  All very scaleable, which is very handy for me at the moment, and a good fallback option for workouts in the garden.


2) Track my food & drink - I didn't track everything (as I hadn't actually come up with goal yet at the time), but I was a lot more mindful of what I was eating & drinking all day.  No beer in the afternoon despite it being a sunny bank holiday, although I did have a bottle of wine in the evening while we did a pub quiz over Zoom for some of our friends.

 

3) Learning - I logged into Codecademy and did a lesson SQL, then did a couple of Spanish lessons on Duolingo too.

 

Tuesday

 

Bit more structured today as I was coming up with the specifics of what I want to achieve.

 

1) Exercise daily - Today I got up at went for a walk first thing (my body needed to recover from the HIIT workout!) and wandered over to my parents' house to pick up the shopping bags I used to deliver groceries last week.  Escorted a Mama Duck & her tiny little brood across a car park to the pond en route - I'd share the video but I have difficulty doing that on this site without Tapatalk working...


2) Track my food & drink - Breakfast was left over bacon & veggie frittata that we had on Sunday to use up some eggs & veg that was going off soon.  A late lunch was Mac & Cheese Bites from the Pinch of Nom - Everyday Light cookbook that we've been really enjoying cooking from, and dinner was leftovers from some of last week's meals - lasagne, Jamie Oliver's Gobble-oink pie (was originally planned to be a Shepherd's Pie but the supermarket was out of lamb mince so I had to get substitutues...).

 

I did have a couple of small snacks during the day, but I delayed them and made sure I was definitely feeling physical hunger at the time and not just boredom or thirst.

 

3) Learning - I carried on with multiple SQL lessons on Codecademy, mainly practising the various ways of querying data from tables and grouping the results.  Spanish practice done as well!

 

Tuesday was the first "working week" day that I've tried putting this new structure in place and it felt good - last week I could easily get to 11am and still be in my PJs on the sofa playing games on my phone, whereas  by 11am today I had been for a walk, ticked a load of stuff off my To Do list, and made progress on multiple goals.  May need a little refining as I go on, but it's good to feel like I've achieved something!

Unfortunately I am very much NOT Scout material until I lose a bit of weight and can run again - too injury-prone when I'm this heavy!

Hey, ive heard a lot of this Joe Wicks, might give it a go! Hope you have a really great day xx

 

His stuff does seem genuinely good, I definitely recommend you give it  look!

 

------------------------------------------------

 

Wednesday

 

1) Exercise daily - Today I set my alarm and got up to do a bodyweight workout to start off my day (after some coffee, obvs).  By the time I got out into the garden it was 9:15 and the daily Joe Wicks PE lesson was halfway through, so I clicked on Tuesday's video and did that instead.  He mentioned halfway through that there were 260k people livestreaming it, and as I write this it's gone over 1M views!  Plan for Friday is to get up and follow that livestream as it actually happens.  If I don't quite make it, I'll do Thursday's instead.


2) Track my food & drink - Today was the big weekly grocery shopping run so I made sure I ate well before I went to avoid impulse buys; with all the leftover veg in the fridge including some mashed potato, the clearly obvious meal to make was bubble & squeak.  Always good, especially with leeks in it and a bit of ketchup on top too!

 

After I got back a few hours later I had some of the fresh tiger bread I'd bought, and for dinner we had leftover bacon-wrapped meatloaf along with some fancy baked potatoes made by the Welshman (scoop out the cooked potato, mix it with various things including cheese, spring onions & eggs amongst others, then put it back in the potato skins and cook fro a bit longer).  The evening did include a bottle of wine while finishing up the Taskmaster S9 finale, but I feel like I earned the treat by tackling Asda in the afternoon!

 

3) Learning - I got through the Aggregate Functions module of the SQL course I'm following.  The initial instruction sessions felt horribly dense and therefore so did I, but the numerous lessons following gradually led me through applying it all practically so at some point it all actually clicked and I feel I can apply the basics now.  The next module involves using Multiple Tables and I can guarantee it will involve more of a fight through the material...

 

I didn't actually get round to doing a single Spanish lesson on Duolingo, for which I have no good excuse.  I kept putting it off and ptting it off, then it was time for bed.  So my daily To Do list has now been rewritten to specifically make me do ONE lesson early on, with reminders for more later on in the day.

 

Halfway through the week now!  Looking forward to the weekend already, mainly because it'll involve Lego on Saturday and a proper full roast dinner on Sunday!

Curious to see how the data science lessons continue. Are you doing mostly the SQL for now? What Lego are you planning over the weekend?

Bubble & Squeak is a traditional way of using up cooked veg left over from meals, typically a roast dinner or a Christmas dinner - it usually has mashed potato, sprouts, and cabbage but you can use anything really.  Fry it all in a pan on the hob, add potatoes, and form it into a kind of cake that you brown off on each side.

 

The data science lessons have just been SQL so far, but then they move on to Python 3 and other things I think.  It's taking me long enough to get my head round these lessons though so I've got a fair while until I get to them I think.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

 

Thursday

 

1) Exercise daily - Went out for my walk at 9am sharp (easy to keep track of the times as the Welshman goes on conference calls regularly each day). Just did a 1.3M loop, but I had a podcast playing and it was sunny so it was nice to get out there.


2) Track my food & drink - late morning we had microwaveable breakfast wraps that I found in the freezer section while shopping last week - sausage, beans, bacon, and cheese wrapped up in tortilla.  Nice little treat!  Not too unhealthy either judging by the details on the packet.

 

Later afternoon I had a bit of a snack of tiger bread & butter (I do so like having fresh bread in the house again), and for dinner we fired up the barbecue (eventually - we made a right faff of lighting it, in the end resorting to finding out online how to make our own firelighters out of paper & cooking oil as we didn't have any in the house!) and cooked BBQ pork chops, Chinese pork chops, pork & apple sausages, and a couple of lamb steaks.  Leftovers for lunch on Friday!  Cider & wine did occur as well, but it just seems the natural accompaniment to a barbecue.

 

3) Learning - I fought my way through the Multiple Tables lessons on the SQL course.  Again, the basic concepts lessons took ages to sink in, but the repeated drilling and practice of writing code that followed seemed to make it finally click.  I'm certain learning was a lot easier 20-30 years ago...

Ahhh now that you mention this bubble and squeak, I believe we have talked about this before :) 

 

Nice! I know a touch of python 3, but python is also nice being open source, a lot of resources out there.

Friday & Weekend Update!

 

Friday

 

1) Exercise daily -  PE with Joe again this morning; I seem to be recovering from it ok, so next week I'm going to try to step things up to four days a week instead.  Monday & Tuesday, then Thursday & Friday, with walks on the other days.


2) Track my food & drink - for brunch I toasted the last of the tiger bread (it was going a bit hard) and had a bag of kettle chips with it.  I think I grazed through a lot of the rest of the day, then for dinner we had my variation on Toad in Hole - a bag of "mediterranean veg" from the supermarket (containing sliced courgettes, red onions, & peppers) cooked in the oven witht he sausages, then pour the batter mix over it and cook it all as one.  Served up with gravy - absolutely lovely, a good Friday treat!

 

I really need to figure out how to put photos up on here easily now that Tapatalk is being rubbish.  Must be a relatively easy way now I'm using my laptop to post?

 

3) Learning - I did the SQL practice session (aggregate functions + multiple tables), then today's lessons involved:

- the basics of Command Prompt on my computer

- installing SQLite to go off-platform from Codecademy,

- SQL command review

The next module I'm going to tackle involves analysing more data using SQL, so if I can power through that (with it making sense) then on Tuesday I get to start on Python!

 

 

Saturday

 

1) Exercise daily -  Went for long walk with the Welshman; we explored footpaths in a different direction from our little town and managed a nice 5 mile route in total.


2) Track my food & drink - Cheesey onions & bacon on toast for lunch, then dinner was a nice lasagne made with BBQ sauce instead of tomato - absolutely delicious!  Also helped line the stomach before we did a pub quiz over Zoom for some friends - copious wine was involved

 

3) Learning - No coding at the weekends so just kept my Duolingo Spanish streak going.  I did start building the Lego ISS though, so does that count as edumacational?  Also watched the most recent episode of Clone Wars and started the most recent season of Doctor Who while I did so, which was fun.

 

 

Sunday

 

1) Exercise daily -  Just a short 2 mile walk in the afternoon across fields.  This is a nice littel basic loop we can did that is always safely away from other people.


2) Track my food & drink - my turn to make brunch today - bacon, leek, sweetcorn, and red onion fried up with some melted cheese on top, served on Birdseye potato waffles from the freezer as we had no defrosted bread out.  Turned out to be really lovely!

 

For dinner the Welshman took some slightly random ingredients we had left and made us up a nice roast dinner to have in fron of the TV while watching the One World: Together at Home concert on TV.  There was some really lovely performances in that, and the surprises they set up for some of the key workers were brilliant.

 

3) Learning - Finished off my Lego ISS in front of the TV in the morning.

 

So that was my weekend - all ready to crack on with a new week now!

Pleased to see that I've been updating this for a whole week now!  That's pretty good going for me recently, I kinda fell off the boards quite quickly over my last few attempts.

 

Monday

 

1) Exercise daily -  PE with Joe this morning, the first of a planned 4 sessions this week.  I was introduced to Spider-man lunges, and of course made the correct webslinging noise with every rep.  Because nerd.

 

This workout had 380k livestreams by the time it got halfway through, and they also announced that the clicks/ad revenue generated by the 20 editions so far had raised over £91k for NHS charities!  That's pretty good going I reckon.


2) Track my food & drink - Got the cheesey rolls out of the freezer yesterday, so for lunch I had a couple of them with cheese & ham in.  Also grazed a bit over the afternoon witha leftover chinese pork chop and a coupe of jaffa cake bars, so they have been moved out of sight for Tuesday... For dinner I had a go at making Fish Pie for the first time and I was very pleased witht the result!  So was the Welshman (more of a fan of fish than me) so I think that's going to be a more regular addition to our menu from now on.  Got enough leftover for a freezer leftover meal in the future too!

 

First day since before the weekend with no booze at all as well.  Tempted to have a glass of wine with dinner, but my weight is staying stable so I need to start shifting the calorie balance in favour of a deficit again.  It looks like we're going to have nice barbecue weather later on in the week so I want to make sure I can indulge then!

 

3) Learning - Finished off a couple more lessons of Duolingo today.  The main focus was the final module of SQL, and I have to say that it was a STRUGGLE.  I did eventually realise that I was having more of a problem with programming for the maths involving date ranges than I was with the main coding problem, but it was still hard going and I'm glad to have got it all done and out of the way.  Think I'm going to find other (preferably free) SQL courses I can take on after I finish this Data Science course so as to just drill the concepts over and over again.  I think repetitive practice is probably the best way for me to make it sink in.

 

Other than that it was a nice day - went for a walk with the Welshman at lunchtime and also carried on with my TV catch-up as well (S12E2 of Doctor Who and S7E13 of The Walking Dead).  Tonight there's programme called The Truth About Amazon at 9pm which looks pretty interesting & useful for the current situation, and I might fit something else in this evening too as it's not my turn to cook!

Btw keep meaning to ask, sorry if ive missed it but who is Welshman??!

 

Have a agreat day xx

 

I'm not a fan of prawns either so I made it without them too!

 

The Welshman is my fiance, we've been together three years and were supposed to be getting married in August but that's now had to be postponed unfortunately.

Good job staying current with your challenge. And if I am not mistaken, the web-slinging noise is "THWIP"

 

This is indeed the noise I was making! :)

 

--------------------------------------------

 

Tuesday

 

1) Exercise daily -  PE with Joe gain this morning, first time doing them on back to back days.  Today's what a bit different - he flipped a coin each minute to decide whether we did the easy exercises or the hard one, and on the second time through the circuit we kept getting tails.  As a result by quads and hamstring were burning by the end due to all the squats and lunges!

 

I forgot to mention, I also started greasing the groove with my pres-ups - I've set an alarm every morning starting from 10am and to remind me to get down and do some.  Started off with sets of 3, today it became entirely sets of 4.  Hoping to be able to manage sets of 5 soon too!


2) Track my food & drink - Daytime eating consisted of more of an actual meal for lunch (cheesey rolls, leftover pork chops, bag of crisps) and them a couple more buttered rolls later on when I got hungry.  Dinner was a broccoli pasta bake from the Tom Daley book that the Welshman has, and it was surprisingly nice!  Next time it's going to have bacon lardons in too though!

 

3) Learning - made a point of starting off with a Duolingo revision lesson and then a proper lesson (clothes shopping at the moment).  Then it was on to the Python 3 course!

 

I made a start with Module 6 - Python Functions and Logic and worked my way through the Introduction to Python and Python Functions lessons.  Maybe it's just because it;s the very first lessons of the topic and therefore the easiest to grasp, but it already just seems to make more intuituve sense to me than SQL did.  Gonna need to crack on with more of the course to find out if that's really true though!

I definitely recommend you do, we'll be having that one again on next week's menu for sure!

 

And as rubbish as it to postpone the wedding, we just got the new date put on hold by the venue so it's all still there to look forward to 😄

 

----------------------------------------------

 

Wednesday

 

1) Exercise daily -  No PE lesson for me today, which was a blessing as my hamstrings were really sore after the last two days in a row of it!  I blame all the jump lunges...

 

my day's exercise was going for a walk round Asda for our weekly shopping trip.  For the first time since this all started there wasn't a queue to get in, which was very nice indeed!  Almost got everything we wanted (still no flour available there) and then dropped off my parents' shopping so they're not having to go to a supermarket too (Mum works in a care home and we're trying to limit their exposure as much as possible because of this).  Also meant that I got to have a brief chat with them in person from the other end of the driveway after dropping their shopping off in the car port, which was so nice.  Face-to-six-feet-away-face contact is so rare at the moment.


2) Track my food & drink - had a couple of rolls with cheese before going to Asda (never go shopping on an empty stomach), had some nice fresh bread & butter with a packet of crips for lunch, and then for dinner I made us a pork stroganoff with egg noodles.  Haven't made that recipe in ages, forgot how nice it is!

 

3) Learning - Only a brief learning session due to being out of the house in the morning then struggling to get focussed afterwards - I finished Module 6 by learning Python Control Flow (basically all logic puzzles, quite enjoyed it), and so tomorrow I'm hoping to crack on and get through all of Module 7: Python Lists and Loops!

 

Also going to attack the job hunt hard - no clinical coding jobs going near here, fruit farms aren't harvesting yet, and other places are either closed or making plans to carry on working from home/social distancing for the foreseeable future, therefore I just need to find something that gets money coming in.  Perfect opportunity for the career pivot I've been thinking about for a while now though, so need to treat this as an opportunity and make the most of it I guess?

I went to Tesco the other day and no queue, ASDA near me is just always absolutely rammed :(

 

Where abouts do you live? :) Im in Manchester x

 

I'm just outside Ipswich - the Tesco near us has tiny aisles and we don't like shopping there at the best of times, so Asda seems like the better option for us at the moment.

Yeah, fun times.  I should probably be freaking out about it all at least mildly but for some reason I'm still quite calm?  Let's see how long that lasts.  As someone who doesn't react well to change, I've been on a succession of short-term contracts for the last three years and moved to a different continent before that, so I guess there's just generally a good deal of doublethink going on in the background of my head 😅

Thursday

 

1) Exercise daily -  PE with Joe - another coin-flip quad-buster of a workout!  Felt good for having done it, even if I really couldn't be arsed beforeheand.

 

Didn't get round to going for a walk later in the day as I had to give the Welshman a haircut! 😱  It was just trimming the sides with clippers in some approximation of a fade, and I didn't get murdered in my sleep/made newly single so I guess I did an ok job?  He's going to trim mine back again and tidy my beard so I guess any revenge will come then... 😂

 

2) Track my food & drink - Definitely eating too much bread.  And grazing too much.  Think I might need to plan my daytime eating a bit more strictly next week.

 

Dinner was really nice though - the Welshman made us Spanish Chicken and we ate it while watching The Big Night In comedy show on the BBC.

 

3) Learning - I ploughed on through a full module of my Data Science course!  And what's more, I actually understood the content and enjoyed it!  A load of work on Lists in Python 3, then a little bit after on Loops.  The next module is a short once called Advanced Python - more work on List Comprehension, then on to Lambda Functions (whatever they are).  Then a break over the weekend and resume on Monday!
