My focus for this week is to get the house 'spring' cleaned so it is ready for viewings so we get a sale asap. So my schedule is very simple.

Mon to Fri: Bootcamp (alternating upper/lower body workout), walk, spring clean one room of the house, chill.

Weekend: Walk, do something fun, chill.

Meal plan is set from last week - good, wholesome, home cooked meals.

Keeping it simple.

Oops! I've been keeping my eye on the forum, anticipating the new mini-challenge and then somehow I missed this one by two days! Silly me.

I created my own workout with a hot-pink 30-pound sandbag I made. I deadlift it, raise it over my head, place it on my shoulders and squat it, raise it over my head and lower it. Repeat. I shall call it "Like a BOSS workout"

I also made up a strange ab exercise, where I lie on my back on my yoga mat and "reach" over my head with my legs, grab a small exercise ball from the couch with my feet and lower it slowly to the ground then lift it back up and place it on the couch. Repeat. Good for core muscles and flexibility. I do this basically every day, so just assume it's included.

There will be 5km walks interspersed on weekdays somewhere. Depends on weather and when I can talk to my long-distance bf online. Might also walk to work if I wake up early enough. It's an hour walk and I start work at 8:30... That also obviously depends on weather. Tried to walk home on a really hot day and was sooooo tired after.

I'll start with today then:

Sunday, Aug 19: Like a BOSS x 10, Kayaking on deer lake with a friend. She tired out pretty fast last time so if she gets tired this time, I plan to paddle for both of us. We're getting our full hour this time!

Monday, Aug 20: Like a BOSS x10, squats x20

Tuesday, Aug 21: Clean ALL the Floors! Squats x15, elevated push-ups x15

Wednesday, Aug 22: Nia class? try Spinning class? - if neither then Like a BOSS x10 and squats x20

Thursday, Aug 23: Dumbbell rows (10 pound) x15 per side, Chest Presses with resistance cord x15+

Friday, Aug 24: Rest

Saturday, Aug 25: Hiking!

Sunday, Aug 26: Hiking!

Monday, Aug 27: Like a BOSS x12, squats x20

Tuesday, Aug 28: As many squats as possible (record is 60)

Wed, Aug 29: Nia class? Spinning class? - if neither then abs/arms

Thurs, Aug 30: Dumbbell rows (10 pound) x15 per side, curls with resistance cord x10 each side

Friday, Aug 31: Rest

Well, I've already screwed up my schedule as far as the organizing things goes. Still going to finish the rest of the challenge, but I find it's easier for me to get motivation for organizing things and do them, not just when I have planned them. I weeded out clothes and put them away yesterday.

Since I am getting back into my workout plan I have a pretty good schedule set up. My challenge is in the eating dept. I just got our menu planned for the next week. Aug 19-26. We are currently fighting a battle of lazy, ungreatful mini-beasts in our home, so THEY planned the menu for the week and will be helping me prepare every dinner this week. Since they planned it, it is not very Paleo but it is healthier, so I will be focusing on keeping my total net calories at 10,150. Since I didn't start until the 20th, I didn't read it, I will only count half a point of wisdom if we make it to the 24 without eating out and having the kids help with all the meals. I did do all the my planned workouts so far from the 16th on. If the ungreatful mini beasts have learned their lesson, I will be planning the meals from the 27-31. If not the next week will look a lot the same.

Exercise:

Aug 16 - pool time - rest day

Aug 17- Beginers body weight workout AM run/walk 5 miles PM

Aug 18 - Cub Scout event - on feet all day at park

Aug 19 - rest

Aug 20 - Strength train AM - video 3 - Run at least 3 miles PM

Aug 21- Cardio workout video AM OR run 3 miles while kids at class

Aug 22- Strength train AM video 1

Aug 23 - Run at least 3 miles

Aug 24- Strength train - beginners body weight - run 3 miles

Week 2

Aug 25 - Extra run if missed one

Aug 26 - rest

Aug 27 - Strength train video 2 - run 3 miles

Aug 28 - cardio video

Aug 29 - strength train video 3

Aug 30 - run 3 miles

Aug 31 - Strenth train video 3- run/walk 5 miles

Menu Plan

Aug 20 - gyros

Aug 21 - tacos and corn

Aug 22- cauliflower soup and grilled cheese

Aug 23 - hamburgers and coleslaw

Aug 24 - Spagetti and a vegetable from the farm we go to

Quitting this mini-challenge. I'm finding it too restrictive, though arguably that's my own fault for putting in a more rigorously detailed schedule than I really wanted. I'm happier with my previous, more variable schedule. Though I really do want the stat points (gamer that I am) I don't want to do a mini-challenge that ends up causing me to exercise *less*.

I did a barbell workout today at the gym, to take advantage of a week's free gym trial, at a new gym that has childcare facilities. I really wanted to do that, instead of my scheduled bodyweight workout. I may do a park/bodyweight tomorrow if a planned meet-up goes ahead, instead of it being a rest day. And/or I may hit the gym again on Thursday, for another barbell workout in the free trial week.

I'll continue to track my progress on page 1, noting where I vary from the plan.

I didn't quit.....but I realized today that the mini challenge is a bust for me this week. I cannot stick to a day-to-day plan the way my life currently runs.

I have to do what I have been doing. I make a list of things I want and need to get done. I do as much as I can each day, although only one workout per day, and if I get it done early in the week I give myself the rest of the week to play. (Unless some time sensitive issue arises).

But this is cool. If nothing else I have learned that the planning that works for me is a little less conventional. It does take more discipline, in my opinion, to do it my way. But it is working right now. With a Great Uncle that may die any day, and weather dependent work that I need to do, it just needs to be more flexible.

So here's my plan for fitness goals:

M-W-F Walking

Tu-Th-Sa Beginner's Bodyweight Workout

And here's my plan for my life goal (selecting menus for my upcoming cookbook):

Select at least 17 menus from my blog per Challenge week, with one extra sometime before the end.

Here's the extra menu right now:

Stuffed Zucchini (Eight Ball variety)

Steamed corn on the cob (from Boxx Berry Farm via the Islander grocery store)

Fresh ripe plums (Methley variety--friend's garden, Lummi Island)

There, progress already! :smug:

I Did the challenge for the week. Thursday to wednesday. One day wasn't on schedule but health reasons (felt seriously sick to my stomach half way thru wednesday's first mile. enough so I went back home. and walking 4-5 miles (average) at work) Next week I will be following the schedule as a SUGGESTION only. Because I want to follow my craving for an exercise instead of forcing myself to do something else. Soo- No point for me? since it was a 93% follow thru even if it was for health reasons?

I'm still on track 100% with my plan and actually so far its worked well for me planning ahead, because I don't have to worry every day what I am doing. Though I do like the flexible approach as well, so I'm tending to do extra on top of what I planned most days. Today and yesterday though I felt tired and probably wouldn't have managed a workout if I hadn't written it down.

Wow I completely bombed this challenge...

A- It's been a rough couple of weeks in general, very emotionally draining.

B- Some days I feel like yoga, some days I feel like running, some days it's something else, so I really can't schedule that specifically, so far ahead. As long as I'm doing enough of everything each week, and giving body parts their rest days, I figure I'm doing fine.

C- I decided to experiment with intermittent fasting, so even if I do keep some sort of a schedule, it won't be the one I originally posted here, because it doesn't work with when it's good for me to fast, etc.

I think I will schedule two days a week for fasting, followed by a big workout and big breakfast, and beyond that, no schedule, just fit in some exercising wherever it makes sense at the time.

Welcome back Metal Tes, life throws you curveballs and you can't always hit them. I don't think you bombed this challenge, I think unforseen events occured and caused you to change your plans. You can not plan for these curveballs they just happen and you do your best to deal with them. As long as you are still progressing towards your goals schedules be damned. Glad to see you back on the boards.

I supposed you're right, there's only so much you can do when everything goes off the track...just try to push through and get back on it. I think I'm actually on a better track than I was before, we shall see!

As long as you are still progressing towards your goals schedules be damned. Glad to see you back on the boards.

Damn right...and thanks...I missed you guys. :)
