thekatisalie :: a witty challenge title appears!

Recommended Posts

I keep trying... and I keep vanishing. I feel like I need the accountability, but I get swallowed  into the abyss like half way every time... So... let's try to not... do that again?

 

I've been in a plateau for two months. Maybe more... I've seen some great back/shoulder development, but everything else is just... stagnant.

 

After trying a major diet overhaul and realizing I was somehow ALWAYS hungry on a 2100 calorie diet, I've gone from eliminating dairy/processed carbs to a diet low in them, but balance out.

 

I have a few simple goals:

 

1. Burn at least 500 calories a day 6 days a week

2. Track exercise and food in MyFitnessPal (friend me!!!) to net out at 1750 

3. Drink 80oz water daily

4. Don't die off halfway through the challenge

 

I think that's simple enough to start. Let's do this.

Day One, Week Zero:

5:30am is the normal time Monday through Friday for workouts. Working from home has made my start time more fluid, so it's been nice to not rush through a workout. I do a 5:30am Zoom call every morning, even if just one person shows up. And usually it's just one person and me... but the accountability really makes a diference.

 

Did The Work: Total Body Push/Pull today for week 4 of the six week program.  Cooled down with a 30 minute treadmill walk (it's too dark to go out that early this time of year). Calorie burn was 600ish.

All meals and workouts are pre-loaded today in MyFitnessPal. I'm on the ball for once. I'm currently at 32oz water so I am way behind, but working on it!

I feel this. I keep getting swallowed into that abyss. It's so much better to have a community that supports you to try and reach your goals. You got this! Let's do it!

Are the zoom calls specifically for accountability or do you workout with other people via zoom?

I've been doing it since our stat shut down back in March, and as others have fallen off, I've just started using my own Zoom and inviting people. 5:30am CDT is a hard pill to swallow for a lot of folks ha.

Usually we log in, say good morning, say what our workout is, then mute and workout for 30 min, and regroup to wish everyone a nice day at the end with a celebration pic. People have done yoga, lifting, running, I went biking once... it's been really fun. Anyone can join. I'll share the Zoom link here when I have a moment if anyone feels like popping in M-F!

I've seen your workouts on Facebook (before I deactivated anyway) so I know you're putting in work™ but I just say that I am tickled to see you back here!

 

And now you know there's a whole Ranger Corps army to hold you accountable. I'll send them at your social media if I just, so don't be falling off halfway through this challenge 😉

 

PS: friended you on MFP!

That's really cool! That's an awesome idea! 

 

It sounds like a good way to start the day! Maybe when I start the work out portion of my challenge I'll try that.

Obligatory PSA because I'm on the IT team that had to deal with zoombombers sharing disturbing content during a meeting: if you do share the link online (here, or if you're putting it in a public facebook group) be sure to enable the waiting room or just DM the Zoom link to whoever is interested, because we discovered shady internet folks are collecting non-secure Zoom links and sharing them on a Discord server dedicated to zoombombing. Stay safe!

 

In other news, major kudos on the 5:30am workouts! :D

While all this sounds fun and awesome, I have to try and manage my time wisely. I have too much on my plate as it is. I'd love to do a craft night! I just can't squeeze it in. Why isn't there more time?! lol. I want to do all the things!!!! #rangerbrain

I love the Zoom workout structure you have. It sounds great. I get up pretty early, but I'm on Pacific time, so that means pretty late for you.

Ok so week zero is going well so far, despite having to deal with quasi-crippling depression out of nowhere. 

So far I've met my goals each day, except in the water category. Looking for ways to get there by Week 1.

BCAAs?  Flavored water alternatives?  Sometimes it helps to jazz your H20 supply a bit.

 

We're here to support.  I know that black dog all too well.  Always willing to chat, whether here or privately!  Great work on grinding through your goals on days you don't even feel like crawling out of bed.
