RES: CUTE 2021 Phase 3


Recommended Posts

Ivy.jpg

 

To continue with the acronym…

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. Making sure I stop eating when I'm supposed to is the biggest challenge with food, since what I eat is generally good. We've started something new with this, we both were tired of creating menus, shopping, and cooking (even though shopping means ordering online) We decided to each purchase our own meals (usually frozen, sometimes just veggies and protein) every two weeks on Tuesday we rotate who makes their tacos, and make enough for two weeks :D and every Friday we order from a local pizza place that makes a cauliflower crust so amazing you can't tell that's what you're eating! Doing this has helped immensely with portion control and I've lost about 5lbs so far. I've also been tracking just to stay aware of what and how much I'm eating.

 

I'm doing better at making sure my workouts happen,  I have a treadmill and workout equipment at home, there is no good reason for this not to be a priority, until I feel comfortable going to the gym again. (I live in FL, my governor is an idiot, this will probably not happen soon) Reminding myself how good I feel and not letting my brain make excuses are helping...my much needed motivation is I have a birthday cruise to prepare for and I need to be in shape for season. Running around a ballpark is probably not going to be easy with a mask on, so cardio is important! I may not be running around a ballpark this year, we'll find out this challenge (probably week zero) Workouts are still a priority though if I get another job my schedule may have to change a bit. Sleep is essential for these goals as well, I struggle to get 7 hours a night, not because I go to bed late or get up too early, it's because sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and my brain won't shut off!

 

Updates need to happen to hold me accountable, and extra stuff needs to happen because I have a tendency to hermit away, and they say all work and no play...but I'm anything but dull ;) 

 

The 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 when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful)

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

Done - 🌈

Not Done - ❄️

Sadly, same for me.  I go to bed at a reasonable 9-10pm (since I wake at 5am) but that 3am wake-up for no reason and unable to fall back to sleep messes with me more often than I wish.

Following for another challenge, love the idea for the eating plan.

Thank you, necessity is the mother of invention 

 

So I have 8 working days to document everything I do (unless they decide to keep me as a contractor to do payroll) and figure out how to arrange my schedule to get my workouts in...no problem! I love a challenge ;)

They really have no idea how much of a struggle this will be...especially since my assistant doesn't want it

Do you get a break between finishing the old job and starting the new one?

Unfortunately I can't afford to do that...

Awesome-sauce on the job :) 

Fuck Yeah GIFs | Tenor

Thank you!!!

 

Damn, I've been so busy this week I totally forgot to update for week zero :o so here it is...5? days late...but it was the week I turned in my notice so there is a valid reason 😎 

 

 

The 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 when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) Sleep ❄️🌈❄️🌈🌈🌈❄️ Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here. Collegiate game on Monday, work day on Saturday, rode afterwards and set up for our charity ride on Sunday!

 

So Monday I start the new job, have to be there at 8am, it's about 45 min away...not a huge deal but wondering how to rearrange my schedule to accommodate everything. 

My former (now) job is a new client of mine, I will be continuing to do their payroll and a few other items that I was solely responsible for previously, I don't mind the extra cash!

 

Now to try and catch up here!

Super busy week but I think I'm about caught up now! Goals took a hit and I'm taking today to clean house instead of work out, but I'm okay with that and still counting it as a win!

 

The Plan...Week 1

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 when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) Sleep ❄️🌈🌈❄️🌈🌈🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here. Amazing ride on Saturday, raised  money for a good cause, finished my SOP for the job I left, CFO and GM were suitably impressed, whoever they end up finding should have a much easier time doing that job than I did when I started and had to really create the  procedures from the ground up. Shot one done on Monday! Nails done on Wednesday.

So this week I gave myself a pass on a few things...probably not the smartest move but it is what it is...between starting at the new job, still working as a I/C at the old one, and getting my other clients taxes done and sent off...workouts were not something I was going to stress about trying to work in there.  I've got a few ideas about how to work them in to the schedule, I did today's and right now that's enough.

Learned a lot about my new job this week, amazing ride this weekend...bought a paddleboard with my stimulus money and paying off several bills after cashing out my 401k.

 

 

The Plan...Week 2

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 when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) Sleep ❄️❄️🌈❄️❄️❄️🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here.  Another amazing ride Saturday for the All Female Ride here in Jax. Pictures below :D

Congratulations on starting your new job and keeping your old company as a client. I hope the better atmosphere and prospects at the new place make up for the long commute.

Thank you! It was :D

 

Got a couple more items in this week, weird thing I noticed was I keep waking up about 5-15 min before my alarm goes off at 5:30, no matter how early or late I go to bed. That's the main reason for my lack of sleep this week.

 

 

The Plan...Week 3

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 when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) Sleep ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here. Rainy weekend this week, just enjoying spending time with D.

 

New job is going great, learning how to utilize a lot of stuff in my brain that I haven't for quite some time...found out that my former assistant is probably going to be leaving my former workplace soon as well. Hopefully they find someone soon.
