Aloha! Shello Surfs the Crazy Waves 2024.4


Recommended Posts

Welcome to my challenge.   As always, I've set up a Roadmap for what I want to accomplish in 2024.  Mine is posted here in my battle log.  Every challenge is aimed at accomplishing some part of the roadmap or furthering my adventure towards this year's goals. 

 

The next five weeks are going to be crazy busy.  Peach decided to switch to an online degree program and move home (Yay!) but this weekend is an unexpected trip up north to help her bring her stuff back.  DDG's youngest graduates college the weekend after (with 2 ceremonies for 2 degrees, an award ceremony, and a dinner), and Qbert comes home that weekend.  Then a little over a week after that the kids and I are headed to Hawaii for our annual vacation.   All the while, DDG and I are getting the house ready to be listed on the market.  It will go live the very week I get back from Hawaii so that means the entire task list we have left basically needs to be done before I leave for my trip.   

 

I lost 8 pounds last challenge, 12 so far this year, and many non scale victories tracked in my battle log.  I have zero interest in losing any ground.  Since this challenge is so busy and stressful I know how easy it is to let these habits fall to the wayside.  This challenge is all about the solid foundation to keep my head above water through all the crazy waves!

These are my non-negotiables for success:

The Daily 5 - stick to the 5 daily goals from my roadmap.  These are my foundation for success

  • Start the day with Water
  • Fast 15 hours (may be negotiable on vacation) 
  • Eat at least 1 freggy
  • Eat at a deficit (I likely won't log on vacation but should stay reasonable)
  • Move daily (This is usually the hardest but should be the easiest with all the work to do.  Even vacation should be easy since we are about a mile from the beach and won't have a car)

 

Meal Planning

This is a foundational habit that is now a no-brainer.  Paired with batch cooking I can avoid the last minute meals or fast food that are counter productive.  I will likely have less time for batch cooking over the next several weeks so without a plan we would just eat pizza every single day.  I must come up with a plan for each week.  Find easy batch cooked meals, use a crock pot, use up the food in the freezer.  Even if there is no batch cooking I at least need a plan for easy meals, even if it's just sandwiches.  

 

Rest!

An overworked and stressed Shello gets migraines.  We don't have time for that.  So much less work gets done then.  Avoid getting overworked and stressed.  Some things are going to have to slide in order to get everything done that we need to get done.  That probably includes fitness.  There are no fitness goals this challenge.  If we can get a walk in, that would be lovely, and help with stress, but it is not a goal.   Hopefully I'll get to the gym occasionally but I'm not counting on it.    I also have to make sure and build some restful routines in. 

  • Try not to tackle too big a project after work. 
  • be done by dinnertime so we can relax. 
  • Go to bed early.  
  • Take a hot bath and relax

Day 1!

 

I was wicked tired at work.  I'm still recovering from a head cold and sleeping with cold medicine.  I was not ready to wake up and feared I might nod off for the first half of the day.  Made it through with no sweets or extra snacks.  I batch cooked some taco meat using ground beef and turkey and we just made taco salads.   We ate pretty late as the painter we had arranged for Monday didn't show up.  He was to paint the kitchen and we were hoping he would have time to paint a couple extra walls in the living room for a little extra cash.  Since he didn't show I painted those two walls while DDG got the storage unit arranged and brought the first load of boxes over.  Then he started some of the kitchen prep since now we have to paint that ourselves too.  I finished the day with 380 extra calories, almost half of which were exercise calories.  I was beat when we finished.  We watched one episode of TV and then went to bed early.   Banner first day.

Day 2

Another solid day.  DDG tried to put his foot down and say last night should be a couch night with no chores so I could just rest.   Silly boy, there is no time for that.  So I suggested a compromise with a list of small/easy tasks.  He knows how stubborn I am so that's what we did, plus he mowed the lawn.  We had some doors with holes in them and the day before I had filled some in with expanding foam so last night I cut the foam down to the edge of the door and covered all with spackle, then cleaned up some caulk by the kitchen sink and spackled that too, then I painted all the trim in the kitchen so it would be ready for the walls to be painted.  And another trip to storage.  We didn't finish our tasks until around 8 and then had a late dinner and finished off the taco meat with taco salads that were a little on the large side just to finish it off.    We watched a little Youtube and then managed one episode of TV before bed.  We didn't make it to bed early but we did at least have some down town in the evening.  

 

Hit all daily goals, 242 calories leftover.

Day 3

I was extremely groggy and had foggy brain most of the day.  It could just be from not feeling well but it feels like the cold medicine is lasting a looooonnngg time and I just can't shake it in the morning.    DDG and I had plans to meet up with his son for dinner; he's in the next town so it's about an hour drive.   I debated skipping it and staying home to sleep but decided to go.  I did try to nap on the drive there but was unsuccessful.  I did rest though.  Dinner was good and then DDG and I hit a home improvement store there to gather some supplies that we needed.  I didn't want to stop when we got home and it was late.  I attempted another nap on the way home but we were chatty and it didn't happen.  We did go straight to bed when we got home so it was a rare very early night.  I attempted half a dose of cold medicine but had to get up an hour later to get some cough drops because it was relentless and I couldn't get to sleep.  That did help though and I slept most of the night and didn't feel as groggy.  Still tired.   All goals met, including calorie burn somehow.  I had allowed for extra calories since we were eating out but I still had 350 extra although with a large margin on error.  

 

Day 4

Felt better Thursday.  I was still tired all day but there was no fogginess.  Cold medicine must be the culprit.  We planned some easy tasks for the evening to get some rest but DDG ended up chatting with some guy doing some home improvement across the street and the stranger agreed to fix our ceiling patch for us.  He already had all the supplies mixed up and ready to go for his other project and it didn't cost us much money but saved us a ton of time.  It did delay our projects we had planned so by the time we finished a couple loads to storage it was 8 and we hadn't had dinner yet.  So we called it and had dinner around 8:30.  We jut threw some frozen chicken fingers in the air fryer and then threw them in salads for an easy dinner since we had no more leftovers.  It took a little extra commitment to the goals though.  Since dinner got to be so late I started thinking about just grabbing fast food while we were out going back and forth to storage.  The salads were a better choice. 

Did not get to bed early as we watched a little too much Youtube before an episode of our show and then DDG ended up back on Youtube.  All other goals met, 482 calories left over because I was awarded some surprise workout calories.

He was introduced to NF as Dinner Date Guy.  As his status continued to increase, everyone was so used to calling him DDG so it just stuck.  I think we retconned it to DoodlieDudeGuy or something along those lines.

What a rough weekend.  I had to drive up to pick up Peach and help move all her stuff back home.  It was unexpected in the first place because she was only going to be home for the summer so was going to leave a lot of stuff there.  The good news though is that she's decided to stay in town here and switch schools!  On my 9 hour drive up on Saturday she called and said she was sick and wasn't able to keep any food down.  She ended up being sick the entire weekend and had a miserable drive home.  She wasn't able to finish packing or load anything into the cars.  Her dorm is on the 3rd floor, no elevator so needless to say I got A LOT of steps in.  My food log app gave me 900 exercise calories!!   I didn't use any of them that day but used up most of what was allotted.  I set my calorie limit a little high for the days I was traveling and went over on the day I drove up.   Glad all that is over and my baby is back home.  

 

Overall for the week I hit most of the goals.  There are a couple of red marks that I am not worried about.  Freggies are always difficult on the road.

I'll be bringing Bubbles home next weekend.  Hopefully she'll have everything packed up for us when we arrive, but it's still going to be many steps up and down to collect it all.

 

Glad Peach is home safe, hope she feels better soon.

Week 1 is underway.  Meal planning is done.   I wasn't home over the weekend to do any batch cooking but with plans out tonight (concessions at a game) and graduate dinner Saturday that didn't leave many nights left.  Friday is always pizza night.  We just planned to make salads using frozen breaded chicken in the air fryer.  Had one for dinner last night and will have another Thursday night and that's the whole week.  

 

Broke my fast early today since my employer offered free breakfast today due to healthcare workers week or something.  I have to do performance evals this week and next so I planned to do one of my work from home staff's eval at breakfast.  I figure since she had to come into the office for it anyway, we might as well get free breakfast.  I just delayed lunch and skipped afternoon snacks.  And it's a high calorie budget day since we're eating at concessions.  

 

Working on the rest.  I am so stinking tired.  I just can't seem to get a good night's sleep.  I stopped sleeping with cold medicine because it made me so foggy.  I slept with gummies a couple nights over the weekend.  I managed 1 really solid night but then stayed up too late the night before our drive home, a little procrastination bedtime revenge!   I tried sleeping with no assistance Monday night and woke up with a sore throat again.  Last night slept with allergy meds and woke up not feeling rested and half asleep half the day.  I probably need a couple of really early nights.

Wednesday

Fasting goal not met (see previous post about breakfast) and only 1 freggy.  All other goals met.  Dinner was at the soccer game.  There were the standard concessions, Godfather's Pizza (a local favorite), but also a BBQ food truck.  I had a pulled port BBQ sandwich and some fries.  Super delish.  285 calories left over although with a large margin of error and a high calorie budget.  

 

Rest improved slightly but we didn't end up getting to bed early.  The game went into extra time and it was late when we got home.  Then we did a little planning on which tasks we would tackle around the house the next day.  It was midnight by actual lights out time.  Slept slightly better but still not high quality sleep.  Avoided allergy meds and any other sleeping assists and I was less foggy today so that's an improvement.

Oh my gosh, traveling while sick is no fun. I feel like most college students dont pack soon enough. Lol i didnt my freshman year. By senior year, I had most of my stuff home and could just drive myself and a few suitcases home lol. I’m glad Peach is going to be closer to home, 9 hours is so far. 
 

i hope the allergies clear up soon for you.

I didn't realize how long it had been since my last update.  

 

Lots of red for week 1.  There was a lot going on, lots of events with meals out of the house.  We've been busy working on the house too to get ready to put it on the market.  Dinner has been late most nights so fasting has been a bit of a struggle.   Both kids are now how from school  We spent a lovely Mother's Day together. 

 

Week 2 improved in that there is less red but I also just ran out of spoons so I took a break from logging.  I don't think those days were terrible but there was probably more candy than usual and a food day that got a little out of hand.   It was our final week before my trip to Hawaii to finish our list of tasks for the house.  It goes on the market pretty much as soon as I get back.   We kept meal planning simple.  Rest has been difficult but finally this past weekend I was able to catch up a little.  Now I'm ready for vacation.  My plan is to use it to focus on rest and relaxation and probably some drinking.  There will be plenty of walking and eating.  As long as I don't eat enough that I'm sick and eat some freggies I think it will balance out.

I hope you have an amazing trip! 

 

Thank you!  It was an amazing trip!  It was expensive and more crowded than I expected but such a beautiful place with an awesome vibe!  I will be going again someday.

I am not saying I am Wonder Woman. I am just saying no one has ever seen me and Wonder Woman together in the same room.

Aloha! I did indeed make it back.  I did not get eaten by a shark or get swallowed up in a freak surfing accident.  I got back a little over 2 weeks ago, got our house on the market as soon as I got back and sold it on the first weekend!  We've been busy with a few other house related things since then but life has quieted down a lot!  I have been tracking my goals but struggled to really get back and participate on the forums for some reason.  I fell really behind on all your challenges but now that it's time for new challenges it's a clean slate and I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone.  

 

Goals have gone decently for the rest of this challenge.  I didn't gain much weight on the trip and I'm positive it was mostly bloat from the last couple days of travel.  The rest of the time I ate pretty mindfully and we were hella active during the whole trip.  Struggled a little bit once we got home adjusting to my time zone again and getting back to reality.  I'm mostly back on track with food although there is still some red on the spreadsheet.   I've managed to lose the vacation weight and just a tiny bit more for a total loss of 0.7 for this challenge.  Negligible but it feels like an accomplishment regardless.  My goals this challenge were meager and I think I accomplished what I was hoping to.  

 

Fitness has been a STRUGGLE but there's a reason it wasn't a goal this challenge.   I didn't have time for the gym or walks earlier in the challenge because we were working on the house every single night.  I have had trouble getting back to it since Hawaii too.  I got a tattoo with Qbert in Hawaii and I got mine on my foot.  Wearing shoes has been a no go so walking and gymming were put on hold.  We finally went out for a short walk this week.  I pushed off my trainer until next week but went to the gym with Peach this week to get used to it again.  I figured if I could just walk in the door and expose myself to gym air then I'd stop fighting it so much after all this time off.  We did get to the gym but then I realized the gym bag I'd had packed for 2 months didn't have gym shorts in it!  and I was wearing a dress!  So I got exposed to the gym air and then promptly left.  I do have an appointment with my trainer next week so IT'S ON!   Mahalo!
