Per Request 😉 

 

 

The Plan....

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full.

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here 

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread.

Exercise: Weights 1x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event)

 

I have a bad habit this time of year of hiding away...I want to go to all the things then when the time comes I make excuses and don't do them...this isn't starting off too well since I've already bailed on two plans this weekend. In my defense they conflicted so I canceled one, then the other got rained out...blame Florida weather 🙄

So they haven't closed up gyms again?  That's happening to me this week so no elliptical work for me this challenge, sadly :( 

Haven't been in a gym since March, but no, the idiot in charge down here doesn't think it's needed...he actually extended a mandate AGAINST mask mandates...so even though my city has one, they can't enforce it :(

I have a bad habit of hiding away all year 🙃 

 

Eating when hungry / stopping when full is waaaaaay harder than it sounds, good luck with it! It took me years to get down and I still eat too much some days!

My job doesn't allow me to all year ;) which probably has a bit to do with why I do it in the winter...any social tendencies I have are taken care of during season, but off season my friends want to invite me places, I usually accept then try to get out of it ...the struggle is real! :lol:

it is tough, which is why I leave it in my challenges...almost two years ago (wow, time flies) I started listening to a podcast called fit-n-fat that advocated planning your day (night before or morning of) with exactly what you were going to eat...as she put it "if you're going to have a bag of Hershey kisses for breakfast, put it on your plan" it helped a lot in making me think about what I was going to eat/do rather than 'grab ass' eating through the day, and nothing was off limits if it was on your plan (and if it wasn't put it on the next day if you really wanted it). That's the easy part, the harder part is teaching yourself to stop when full...I still struggle with that A LOT! Reminding myself it's not the last time I'm ever going to get to have it and I can finish it later if I'm hungry helps, sometimes....:rolleyes:

Ohmyohmyohmy! The magic of not judging and being honest with ourselves without guilt! That is such a nice place to be in.

 

Here to watch your CUTE performance and nudge you out. Even though Florida weather might be twirling its mustache right now, I'm confident you'll come up with a plan to foil its own.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

I try to be there, not fully yet...goals are good to have though!

Thank you! Between the rain and the heat...and hurricanes, and cold fronts (okay, 34 is cold to me!) the weather keeps us on our toes around here

This is me. Every year, I am like "I should do all the Xmas things and visit all the people," and then I just want to bail on everything and hide from the cold.

The whole 'listen to your body' thing doesn't work for me because of decades of bad eating habits.  Like, if I listen to my body:

 

-I won't drink any water for like 2 days straight and get a horrible dehydration headache.

-I'll binge eat literally anything.

-I won't eat for 12+ hours if I'm at work and then come home and play a game.

-I stay up until midnight or wake up at 3am and don't go back to sleep.

 

So the whole 'listen to your body' adage is a load of shit for me.  I have to use reminders, timers, batch cooking, and visual aids in order to have my body do things like 'eat' and 'drink' and 'sleep'.

Not a bad week, nothing to write home about...no cardio done this week...wish this weather would decide what it's doing so I know what my joints were going to feel like

 

The Plan....

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7, kind of, didn't plan too well this week so ended up being very hungry a few times with nothing to eat

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here Went to see lights with the mama's on Monday, nails done Tuesday, tried "floating" on Thursday, brunch today and a visit to a tattoo shop for the group I ride with today

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread. 4/7 sleep (remember what I said about the weather, hard to sleep when you're in pain) 5/3 posting

Exercise: Weights 1x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event) 1/1 Weights, 0/7 Steps, 1/3 Treadmill/Event (event tonight at work)

 

Picture from today

RHRV1vIm.jpg

 

Floating was incredible, first time in 20 years I was not in pain...almost enough to make me stop dying my hair (I can't do it while there is risk of my hair 'bleeding' into the tank and contaminating it, and I still wear a swim cap)

Ride was canceled today due to cold, hopefully we'll get to do it on the 19th, which is also D's birthday...guess it's a good thing I didn't plan too much...

I got on the treadmill this morning :D only 20 minutes but it counts dammit!! :lol:

Put the tree up yesterday (I'm at work now so pics will have to come later) and worked on my youngest son's blanket I'm crocheting for him...I hope to have it done in time for Xmas, but I'm going to have to make that my main focus for the next week or two in order to make that happen

I wish you all the creative time for working on your crochet blanket. I have ideas for a gift for Elf. Since I haven't even started it yet, it will have to wait for some occasion next year. My crafting ambitions are always bigger than my actual time.

I relate to this issue, didn't help that I got sidetracked and just had to crochet myself a santa hat LOL

 

The Plan....

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 7/7, Made sure I had food this week

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here Went to Night of Lights in St Augustine on Saturday, and a ride on Sunday (but that's technically this week

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread. 6/7 sleep, 2/3 posting

Exercise: Weights 1x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event) 1/1 Weights, 1/7 Steps, 2/3 Treadmill/Event 

 

So life...had too much fun stuff going on this weekend to get on here and update :D 

Saturday we went with a group of friends (22) to ride the trolley in St Augustine to see Night of Lights, 

tbJBDEkm.jpg

 

Yesterday we woke up to fog and chilly temperatures, left the house on the bikes at 9:30, they postponed the ride until 11, we didn't get home till 6pm...it was such an incredible day!
