RES: CRUSTED is the only acronym I can come up with for this


Recommended Posts

Ivy.jpg

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.  I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle

 

My last 5k (on the 6/5) was a real wake up call. I've let a lot of things go since the pandemic, I could barely move for three days after doing it, I was not trained for it and in retrospect I probably shouldn't have done it.  I've decided the best way to motivate myself is monetarily...it worked last time when I hired a trainer, so I've decided to do that again, through an app this time that will write a program based on the equipment I have. I have four days of weights/bodyweight workouts, and I'm making my step goal a priority again. I'm also going to start tracking for the month that I paid for the trainer for, at the end of four weeks I'll see where we're at and if it's worth the expense to keep going, I'm feeling pretty sure it will be if I stick to it. 

So while it worked to motivate me to work out, I wasn’t really enjoying it. I’ve decided to go back to the 5k training plan I used in 2019 that worked better than anything else I tried…it calls for one day strength training, three days ‘running’ (intervals at your pace is suggested) and one to two days cross training or rest days.

 

Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here. I plan on posting daily to make sure I'm on track where I need to be

 

The Plan...Still more changes

Cardio - The 5k training plan that worked in 2019 (3 interval runs, 1 strength training, 1 walk day

Rest - Sleep (7 hours a night) - sleep is important

Update - Post in thread at least three times a week. - self explanatory

Steps - Hitting my 7500 steps a day goal, minimum

Track - Food (stay in deficit) track in MFP

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - because fun makes life worth living

Duolingo daily

Done - 🌈

Not Done - ❄️

 

Upcoming Events

6/5 - Atlanta Pride Run - Done in 59 minutes

9/25 - Summer Sizzler 5k - virtual due to prior commitment

9/25 - Fall Finish 5k - see above

12/10 - Mud Girl Run in Jax - may change this to Atl. since no one wants to join me

So started the new plan  yesterday and decided that week 1 of the plan needs to be 3 weeks long, because three years makes a difference...I'm not trying to injure myself I'm just trying to get in shape! If it takes me longer than that to build back to 30 minutes of intervals then I'll extend it more.

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

IDK what is up with my sleep patterns. Lights out at 9:20pm, fell right asleep, woke up at 11:00pm (because bladder) and could not fall back asleep for over an hour even though I was exhausted, very thankful it's Friday and an alarm free weekend!

Didn't you say something to me once about not wanting do public accounting because of the hours? 😂 

Yay!! Welcome back

Nah, the goal of a public accountant is to maximize revenue for the shareholders...I'd rather do accounting for small companies and not for profits to help them provide a service...it doesn't pay as well though ;)

Thanks!

Oh, I work for a smallish local CPA firm so all of our clients are smallish local businesses so I still get to feel like I helping out the little guy (we do a lot of not for profits too but I'm not touching a 990 with a 10ft pole 😂). Working for a Big 4 firm or even a largish regional one sounds like hell to me
