RES: Basically CUTE


Recommended Posts

Ivy.jpg

 

For those who are new or behind, I found out a few things during the last challenge that I’m hoping will help me going forward with goals. My main goal is weight loss, for health reasons as well as I want to look good naked.


I work from home, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. 
Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here.
I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle.


I've been a workaholic as long as I can remember, mostly because of past experience and not wanting to have to count on anyone for things I need.  D (my wife for those new here) and I have had many conversations about this. She understands my feelings because she's the same way, but we also know the importance to our relationship for us to be able to depend and count on each other. This is a very long winded way of saying that we need to remember to step away from work and have some fun, riding our motorcycles are a huge part of this for us,  and for right now our every 4 week trips to FL also count towards this.
 
The Plan...
Cardio - Treadmill or Rowing 3x a week, and one kettlebell workout a week
Update - Post in thread three times a week.
Track - Sleep (7 hours a night) and  Food (Just track)
Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here
Done - 🌈
Not Done - ❄️

 

Let's do this!

 

ETA: (To possibly be added to)

4/10 - Spring Sprint 5k

5/21 - Terrain Race 

6/12 - Summer Sizzler 5k

9/25 - Fall Finish 5k

Motorcycles are a fabulous tool for inserting fun into a work/life balance equation! What do you ride? I have a 2015 Victory Vegas 8-Ball. 

 

I also do a lot better with my goals when I remember to check in here regularly.

So this week was disappointing, my car has been giving a drivetrain error on cold starts, I got it into the dealership and they said they fixed it...guess what? They didn't! What a surprise...so I have to take it back next week. I refuse to just let it go when this car doesn't even have 10,000 miles on it. 

The goals were mixed results as you can see below.

 

The Plan...Week 0
Cardio - Treadmill or Rowing 3x a week, and one kettlebell workout a week - ❄️🌈🌈❄️
Update - Post in thread three times a week. - 🌈🌈🌈
Track - Sleep (7 hours a night)  - 🌈🌈❄️❄️❄️❄️🌈  Food (Just track) - Done
Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - Chiro/massage and mammogram this week

 

Was planning on going for a ride tomorrow  but D is working and freeze warnings in the morning when I would have to leave, so not gonna happen! Decided to work on the menu for the week and order/pick up groceries tomorrow since all desire to go into a store has left me. I have the house to myself for most of the day so I'll probably food prep and do laundry.

That's frustrating when your new car has problems and the dealer doesn't fix it. I hope they get it right this time.

 

What were you cooking that got you in the zone?

After this they get one more shot before it can be declared a 'lemon' (I looked it up and started the process already just in case). Unfortunately, she said the codes it's been throwing are related to heat issues as well as the powertrain. 

Breakfast egg cups, tuna salad for lunch, imitation RX bars, and doing laundry :lol:

It was the consistent movement that did it, but I had to laugh when my Fitbit buzzed on my wrist

Like check engine light? Or like it won't work properly?

 

New emissions systems are stupid picky and cold start emissions are the bane of all car company's existence. You could just be throwing a code because weather. It could be a bad sensor, or just weather making something condense in a spot your computer doesn't want it condensing.

 

But yes, the acronyms are accurate. I replaced O2 sensors on my Toyota this year (on, MFH did. He's the professional auto mechanic in the house). 22 years and 235k miles on them.

Both, and it's been cold started in hot and cold weather, nothing makes a difference. I had it in the shop last week, they thought it was fixed, obviously they're looking a little closer at it now because since that didn't fix it they want to know why...so do I!

Busy week, training at the new side gig and cross training at the full time one, plus all the new hires and rehires at the ballfield because season starts Tuesday! D is being audited by the DOT at her job so it's been 12 hour days or more for her, and it was a FL weekend and my car is still in the shop :(  They think it's got to do with the hitch (more specifically the wiring) that they installed right before all this started. We shall see when they check out the wiring this week.

 

The Plan...Week 1
Cardio - Treadmill or Rowing 3x a week, and one kettlebell workout a week - 🌈🌈🌈🌈
Update - Post in thread three times a week. - 🌈🌈🌈
Track - Sleep (7 hours a night)  - 🌈🌈🌈❄️❄️❄️❄️  Food (Just track) - Done
Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - FL Weekend

 

Had an awesome conversation on the way home today, got the rowing machine put together tonight, didn't get it all done today but did enough.

Canceled the chiropractor appointment this morning, just could not see getting on the bike in 40 degree weather to ride over there for 15 minutes. Got the rest of prep done this morning...prepared for the baseball team to drive me over the edge today since everyone wants to wait until the last minute 🙄 please send positive vibes and coffee!
