Paisley(MyLittlePony) - Lets Start at the Very Beginning!


Recommended Posts

Week 4 Day 5

 

Goal 1

Another day with plenty of incidental exercise today.  J and I created a game involving a beach ball which is basically a cross betweensoccer, AFL, volleyball and anything else you can think of.  Basically just a free for all - full contact of course.  We had plenty of fun running around both at recess and again after school.

 

Goal 2:

Food was good - no snacking -  lunch of Jambalaya, and dinner of pork burgers - I did make a cake however and have a slice for dessert, plus licked the beater - however since there was no other snacking there would have been plenty of calories for today left to cover it.

 

Goal 3:

Yep - a good hour of playing.

Week 4 Day 6

 

Goal 1

Was supposed to lift today but ten went for a walk and ended up walking for 7.5 km so figured that was enough for one day.

 

Goal 2:

Food was ok but had Chinese for dinner plus cake plus 1.5 glasses of wine

 

Goal 3:

nope

Week 4 Day 7

Well I got through to the next round of my sewing competition so today was focused entirely on figuring out what I am going to do for that.  Based on how its going so far I don't think I'm going to be doing anything except sewing for the next 4-5 days at least.  

 

Goal 1

Got a lifting session in before they announced the challenge for this round.  Glad I did cause it wouldn't have gotten done otherwise.  Did squats and over head press with 13kg and dumbell rows with 5kg,

 

Goal 2:

Crap food but little of it.  Small amount of Chinese for lunch, even smaller amount for dinner plus a small plate of nachos and a slice of cake. and a glass of wine......

 

Goal 3:

Nope - sewing all day!

Well this week has not gone to plan. Sunday saw the start of the next round of my sewing competition and I chose a design that was a real stretch for me. That's a good thing, but it does mean everything else just got dropped in favour of sewing.  Monday I spent the entire day sewing., and I do mean entire. I started at 7am and finished at about 10pm.  I skipped lunche, J made dinner for the family. I  sat down and ate with them for half an hour or so, then got back to it.....Tuesday was pretty much the same except I took an hour and half off in the morning to get my covid vaccination.  L made dinner that night. Wednesday was a bit better   I did feel like I could take a few breaks at least and even made dinner myself and today was just normal level sewing. But the good news is it's all done.  Just needs a final press then I need to take photos and get my entry ready to submit. At least I'm happy with how it turned out I do believe it was worth it.

 

But that means no lifting and no music this week. Food was pretty crappy

  Not much of it. But what I did eat was easy and bad.  Tomorrow is husband's birthday so probably not a good food day, but I will try and get some lifting in. Then hopefully we can get back on track for next week.

Sometimes it's very fulfilling to just throw yourself into a project like that. Hope you do well in the contest!

Well I can't believe this challenge is over - I start weeks on Mondays so I was thinking I still had today to go on this challenge.

 

But I do want to do a wrap up.

Well week 5 was a bust, but that's OK - I do believe the coat was worth it.

 

Overall - How do I feel I did.

 

Goal 1 - exercise.

I think the first 4 weeks were really good - I had gotten into a good routing, there was exercise being done,  It all fell apart in week 5, but I still feel ok about it.  I feel like now the weather is warming up I can get more incidental exercise back in, but I do want to continue lifting too.

 

 

goal 2 - food

Hmmm this is hard.  I feel like I'm doing fine if my goal is maintenance,  but I need to do something to lose for a little while.  Maybe I need to track for a while and go all out.

 

goal 3- Music

Not so great on this.  I feel like I did get more music in my life the last 4 weeks than I may otherwise have if it hadn't been for this challenge so that's a win, but I also feel I could have done more.

 

So overall - not a win, but a good solid try - I think that I can be happy with what I did, but also know that I can do better.  Onwards and upwwards.
