For those who are new or behind, my main goal is weight loss, for health reasons as well as I want to look good naked, and fit in clothes I used to. I love 5Ks and kettlebells, I'm struggling with this goal because it doesn't get easier when you get older.


I work from home, (3 jobs) as an accountant, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. It's very easy to lose track of how much time I've been sitting trying to solve an issue. Not having "all the unhealthy things" in the house also helps.
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...making a few changes that I feel are needed
Cardio - Treadmill 3x a week, and one kettlebell/strength workout a week - I'm going to start getting up at 5am and working out again, bonus this time is I don't have to drive to the gym
Update - Post in thread three times a week. - self explanatory
Track - Sleep (7 hours a night) and  Food (Just track) - sleep is important, you would think going to bed at 9:30 that 7 hours would be easy! Tracking food is a pain, I dread entering it in MFP, so if I do I do, but I will continue to put it on my spreadsheet
Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - because fun makes life worth living
Done - 🌈
Not Done - ❄️

 

Upcoming Events

4/10 - Spring Sprint 5k  Unfortunately skipped this one, D wasn't feeling it

5/21 - Terrain Race 

6/5 - Atlanta Pride Run

6/12 - Summer Sizzler 5k

9/25 - Fall Finish 5k

12/10 - Mud Girl Run

I am right there with you on trying to get to bed by 9:30pm and getting up early to exercise.  Going to bed on time is hard.

I'm good at going to bed on time, it's going to sleep and staying that way that I struggle with :(

Not exactly setting myself up for success this week, we're both tired from everything this week then the FL weekend, so we're skipping food shopping and meal prep today.  I'm sure I'll regret this later but right now I'm okay with it.

 

The Plan...Week 0
Cardio - Treadmill 3x a week, and one kettlebell/strength workout a week - 🌈❄️❄️🌈
Update - Post in thread three times a week. - 🌈🌈🌈
Track - Sleep (7 hours a night) - 🌈❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️  Food (Just track) - in the spreadsheet
Extra  - Nails on Tuesday, FL weekend, got to see my middle child :D

Sometimes past RES is entirely too ambitious...like when she sets up 7:30 am dental appointments so she can get it done before the workday starts. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I d rather die! 

hope you had a great day and that you get more sleep soon! :) 

Kinda backfired on me, didn't get done until 9:30, so much for being done before work 

This week was pretty good for goals, with the exception of sleep 🙄 but even it was still better than it has been.

Extra - no fun stuff this week (yet, my pool is ready, I might check it out later today)

I may also send D into shock and offer to mow the back yard :D
