Shello Posted February 5 Report Share Posted February 5 Family vacation is the last week of this challenge. I'm still trying to lose the weight from my last vacation. Last challenge I worked on some baselines for my goals so it's time to step things up a bit and get ready for vacation. All my challenges this year follow my 2023 Roadmap posted in my Battle Log. Goal 1: Log Food Daily I've been taking a break from logging food. It was much needed. However, 1) it's not working that well and 2) I think I'm ready. In the last week or two I've been checking in to log a few meals here and there to see where they land. It's time. Tier I - Log food and stay stay within Noom calorie budget by 100 calories Tier II - Ultimately keep the average calories under budget over the course of the challenge Goal 2: Fitness Last challenge I averaged 40% of the fitness goals. The roadmap goal is 150 minutes of cardio, strength 2x a week and stretching/yoga 2x a week. The goal for this challenge will be to hit 50% Tire I - 75 minutes of cardio, at least 1 each of strength and stretching. These can be bundled on the same day. Tier II - Cardio at least 2x a week, regardless of how many minutes. Goal 3: Fitness Snacks Even on non fitness days I should do some movement daily. It should be so easy. It only takes a couple minutes but I had trouble working it in last challenge. I figured it'll be easier if I have some options lined up ahead of time so I don't have to think about it. Hence the fitness snack. 1 minute of stretching and 1 minute of on of these exercises: squats, half jacks, primal squat, plank, or just go up and down the stairs. Tier I - Fill in with fitness snacks to hit move daily goal 75% Tier II - At least do 1 fitness snack a week (I'm lowballing it here but baby steps while I build habits) Goal 4: Tidy daily for 5 minutes or purge 1 item This was one of the hardest goals from last challenge. I did hit 70% so I'd like to get it to 75%. The strategy is to work it into the routine, particularly weekdays. When I get home from work, I chat with DDG before going up to change. Then typically end up joining him on the couch and that's it. Doing some tidying after changing but before settling for the night is the best chance. Tier I - Tidy 75% of the time Tier II - There is no tier II. Just do it. The Other Stuff I also need to keep up with the daily and weekly goals from my Roadmap. Some of those overlap with the goals above. Daily goals Start the day with water Fast 15 hours Eat a freggy Move Daily Read Tidy 5 minutes or purge 1 item Weekly goals Cardio 150 minutes (For this challenge focusing on 75) Strength 2x week (focusing on at least 1) Stretch or Yoga 2x a week (focusing on at least 1) Batch cook weekly Prepare a meal plan weekly 4 Quote Race: Amazonian Ogre Princess | Class: Ranger | Profession: SuperHero | Affiliation: Doodlie and Pancake for Life Respawn Challenge Arcs: 2021 | 2022 I am not saying I am Wonder Woman.
