thekatisalie is back :: no seriously this time


Recommended Posts

I can't for the life of me stay on track and I have a honeymoon to prepare for.

 

  • Do I want to look hot and feel comfortable in a bathing suit? Yes.
  • Do I realize I will be walking 15k+  steps a day for a week when I have been barely walking 3k a day and I need to get my body ready for that? Also yes.
  • Do I just plain need to lose some of this work from home weight so my body quit aching all the time? Also, also yes.

 

GOAL 1:
Cat GIF
Walk (or under desk bike) 8k steps a day.
I bought an under desk bike that isn't getting utilized. I also need to leave my house. Fresh air is good and the pandemic has made me essentially not go anywhere. I still don't go anywhere. But I need to move my body and I need to get sunshine and fresh air.

 

GOAL 2:
Pilates Edinburgh GIF
Lose 5% of my current weight (approximately 8-10 lbs)

I started a program called Transform: 20 today that I'll be continuing through this challenge. I know a lot of my problem is that I don't move as much while working from home, but because if my busy life with work, home, kitten fostering, streaming, etc, I need to do a shorter more intense program to get back in shape and also get enough rest and balance. And this combined with the steps and run goal should get me to this goal.
 

GOAL 3:
Heart Cats GIF
Do one thing for myself, daily.

I have been exceptionally bad at self care lately, and I need to change this. Whether is it time to read, stitch, or veg, I need to make sure I am doing one thing to care for my mental self as well as my physical self. You can't pour from an empty cup.

 

GOAL 4:

Cat Running GIF
Go for two runs a week.

IT'S ALMOST WINTER RUNNING SEASON! And while the goal here is to get back in shape, I also want to acclimate to the cooler temps to be able to take on my Frost Archer form again this year. I didn't acclimate last year and it made it so much harder to even want to run last year. But we're different now.


LET'S DO THIS.

Hey there Frost Archer. I'll be following along. You got this.


I'm certainly trying... Being scatterbrained with stress and life has made it nearly impossible to be consistent with check ins for accountability but I'm trying.

WEEK ZERO BASELINE CHECK INs

GOAL 1:

Walk (or under desk bike) 8k steps a day.

I got over my 8k yesterday. A combination of my workout, biking, and frantically helping my brother clean his house cause family drama is fun. I feel like if I can consistently get my work out in bike during meetings, and take a short after work walk this will be pretty manageable. Might even up to 10k if I see good consistency. 
 

GOAL 2:
Lose 5% of my current weight (approximately 8-10 lbs)
Honestly to track this I have to do the thing I hate the most lately and that is weigh in. I really, really don't want to... but to know progress here I have to. I'll try to do it before the end of the week and I will try to keep the self-talk kind and positive, but this one is incredibly hard for me. I'm ashamed of where I am at right now and I haven't weighed in for months - and I don't want to feel like I'm still where I was back then. Baby steps.
 

GOAL 3:
Do one thing for myself, daily.

Yesterday there wasn't much time for me to do this with the family things going on, but I managed to play Animal Crossing in bed for a short while before lights out. Haven't taken the time to do that since Spring, so it was nice.
 

GOAL 4:
Go for two runs a week.
No time for it so far - I would like to do it today, but cleaning the brother's place is on a timeline so I'll be there and hope I can get these in toward the end of the week.

Hey hey hey!  Long time!

 

I've been just as flaky~!  I start a challenge, all the hype, and week after week I get more and more scarce.    Re-situating is hard.   But you've always been such an awesome cool delightful person and I always get hyped hearing you kick ass, so HERE I AM TO FOLLOW!

WEEK ZERO BASELINE CHECK INs

GOAL 1:

Walk (or under desk bike) 8k steps a day.

The last couple days I've been under 8k. Close on Tuesday, not as close Wednesday. It's been a hectic week, but I think I can make 8k or more when things start next week. Life will hopefully be less... messy.
 

GOAL 2:
Lose 5% of my current weight (approximately 8-10 lbs)
Bleh. Ok. I weighed in and I hate it. 179.2. The literal heaviest I have ever been. I fucking hate this. I exercise every day, I don't eat terribly, and I'm still here. Literally 40 lbs heavier than just three years ago. God damnit. So for this goal, I need to lose 8.96lbs. 
 

GOAL 3:
Do one thing for myself, daily.

I didn't really get the time to do anything "for me" on Tuesday, but after a long night of cleaning house and supporting my brother through the mess he's in, we did have a nice family dinner around the table before we went home. It's been too long. Last night I went to bed early again to play some ACNH. Update next week and my island is still barely started!
 

GOAL 4:
Go for two runs a week.
Planning on 2 miles Friday and 3 miles Saturday... That's the plan at least.

I'm afraid to weigh in, so I compromised with the idea of giving myself a month to get my act together.  (It's totally not.)  Then weigh in and start from there.

Zero week is to get slowly acclimated to the actual challenge, so you're doing fine with zero week!

I've been there. I got out of an unhealthy relationship, lost a lot of weight, got into a healthy one, and gained a bunch of weight. It's frustrating.

I gained my divorce weight and never lost it again. And I am pissed because honestly nothing has changed. I eat out less, I still work out daily. I'm not running as much and work from home is hard to get movement in, but ugh is it 40 lbs worth of not moving?!

I thought I'd try the slow dip in lol but I had to weigh in to be honest with myself with where I am at.

WEEK ONE CHECK INs

GOAL 1:

Walk (or under desk bike) 8k steps a day.

Last three days we 6k, 6k, and 9k. I am trying to get to my 8k goal, but things in my personal life have been so crazy I am happy with the 6k days so far cause it's still more than my usual 2.5k
 

GOAL 2:
Lose 5% of my current weight (approximately 8-10 lbs)
I will be weighing in on Wednesday. I'm hopeful I'm down even a pound or two from 179. I've been a lot more active, which I know can mean water retention at first, though.
 

GOAL 3:
Do one thing for myself, daily.

This has been really hard. I've been doing my best to care for myself while also being there for my brother right now. We've hanging out more and helping him get things in order so I haven't honestly had much time to myself... I hope to do that tonight.
 

GOAL 4:
Go for two runs a week.
I let myself sleep in today so I am hoping for a run after work if it's not too rainy.

Sounds like a good check in so far!

The improvement on the movement is really huge actually, so I was glad to see you taking good credit for the progress on it!!

I buckled and weighed in this morning.   Not as awful as I thought it might be, so it really gave me some motivation.   I mean, yes, up.  But I avoided the 'next decade' lol.
