RES: CUTE 2021 Version

This year I'm going to continue with the acronym I developed in 2020...I will be modifying a few items regarding it though (because of course I am)

Those that have been following for a while know that in 2019 I was doing really good hitting my goals, so I went back to see what I was doing then that was working so well. I've been more lax this  year on the food aspect (thanks Covid) With D cooking her fair share making a detailed plan is a little more difficult, but that's only one meal a day every other week so it shouldn't derail me as much as I've been letting it.

I've also been lax in making sure my workouts happen, after coming home from my granddaughter being born last year it was hard to get back into the routine, then Covid happened and shut everything down...granted, I have a treadmill and workout equipment at home, but finding the motivation isn't as easy as when I was going to the gym, and when I do them I've only been meeting the minimum. I need to make this as much of a priority working out at home as I did when I was going to the gym, until I feel comfortable doing that again. (I live in FL, my governor is an idiot, this will probably not happen soon)

 

The (new) Plan...

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. 

Update - Post in thread three times a week.

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full)

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here

Done - 🌈

Not Done - ❄️

 

The 1/2/21 will be 7 years I've been here...I have a thing for mirror numbers :D

So what was present in 2019 that you are working to add back in to empower yourself to succeed? 

Primarily the commitment, even though the goals and challenges remained the same (basically) in 2020, the dedication to reaching them did not. I allowed myself to many days where I varied from the plan in regards to food, too much comfort eating, to many "I don't feel good so I'm not going to work out today" days. Basic survival was more of the goal in 2020, 2021 I'm going to thrive...also, as in 2019, there is a cruise planned for my birthday that I want to look good for 😉 because I do better with deadlines and incentive.

Don't we all? Going back, my best performances were while prepping for some sort of OCR. Thing is, much like with "shock treatment" diets and weight loss, we need to find a less intense and more consistent way long term. And I guess that's where the habit building aspect of NF and challenges come in.

 

Needless to say, following to cheer you on, as usual.

You are always welcome my friend...

I agree with your shock treatment assessment, I have to say '19 was the first year I was working out consistently, not just to train for something...it became important to me to keep that commitment to myself in a way I hadn't been able to find before...this year was a cluster fuck due to covid, things closing, and season being canceled so that was a huge chunk of activity taken away...but I allowed myself to just let it all go instead of sticking with it at home and I want to return to that commitment to me, regardless of the state of the world

So it seems changing my hair is my go to thing when my life changes in major ways...I did a thing :D

wIJalKRm.jpg

 

I've never gotten my hair colored in a salon, today I spent about 5 hours getting highlights and most of the red tamed down...I have a silver conditioner I'm going to use on it and let it grow out to my natural hair color (which is pretty damn close to silver) I'll keep the lighter streaks in the front

We sold our huge sectional sofa and bought a couch, was delivered today

This fits the space SOOOO much better!

 

Hope everyone has a happy new year, I plan on starting mine correctly by going for a ride :)

I hear you on the 'need a deadline/commitment to train for'. Having a couple of big endurance goals on the horizon is definitely giving me a lot of the drive towards focusing on running, typically something that I've let slide. Not this time!

Contacted a bike shop, need to call them Tuesday and figure out how to get it in for them to look at it to see what's wrong. Was going to schedule my next tattoo but that's on the back burner till I get the bike fixed. 

Monday is back to work, last I heard we will be returning to the office 5 days a week now, because of course we will with numbers rising in FL. 🙄

Kinda wanna go to the hockey game I have tickets for tonight...kinda wanna sit home and not do anything...the struggle is real.

 

The (new) Plan...Week 0

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. ❄️🌈❄️❄️

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈🌈🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full) Sleep🌈❄️🌈🌈🌈❄️🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here. Finished a gem tree that's been on my list, tickets to a hockey game tonight...bike broke so no ride 😞 

 

Took it easy this week, wasn't the intention but it's what happened. Workouts begin tomorrow, along with food prep and getting back to my whatever normal is routine.

 

...and I just realized today is my 7 year nerdversary! Yes i realize I mentioned it in the intro but forgot today was the 2nd (because what is time?)

My bike won't start either, most likely because the battery's lost charge due to inactivity during the holidays and I'll have to replace it. Might be a similar case, hoping it's something as simple (and cheap) to fix.

it was fine 2 weeks ago...D said it may be the cold (it got into the 20's F here) but we checked the battery and it's fine, but maybe water in the tank

What a week, the next three months at work are going to be packed and then season starts 😮. Fortunately I was able to get everything caught up this week and ready for that. 

I was also able to prioritize myself and make sure I got my workouts done and meals were on point (even though it wasn't my week to cook) :D sleep was an issue but it was close on the days I didn't get a full 7. Got the bike to the shop (thankful for roadside assistance doing that) still waiting to hear what the issue is and how much it's going to cost.

As for the home workouts, I didn't end up pushing myself until MONTHS of doing it.  Just staying consistent and trying to not fall on my ass while doing some goblet squats was plenty for me to deal with.  Then one day I noticed that under the pudge, my rocks were solid and then I was hooked and wanted to do more and stay even more consistent.   So I mean, although you say,
