Tamzilla wonders what she's gotten herself into. (Challenge #3)


Recommended Posts

Tamzilla sits haphazardly on the ground, nibbling some sort of green vegetable. She's feeling a little worn, a little tired from the journey. Despite having successfully overcome the mighty 3 Cs, she doesn't feel like a triumphant victor.

 

Leaning back on her elbow, Tamzilla sighs loudly and mutters, "My progress has been way too slow. I should be much farther down the path by now."

Tamzilla flips open her journal to re-read some of her previous entries, and her eyes fasten upon one line surrounded by drawings of stars, hearts, and little swirlie lines:

 

"You may feel like you're going slow, but you're still doing laps around those still sitting on the couch."

Tamzilla sighs again, hikes herself up off the ground, dusts herself off and puts her foot to the path once more...

 

Goal #1 - Deafeat the Sludgies! (+2 STR, +2 STA)

 

I've been keeping track of my carb intake (as well as protein), and want to keep on that, but take it a step further by alternating the limit now and again. I am not prepared to start with lower carbs in Week 1, but that doesn't mean I can't do it Week 2! Also, Saturdays will not count, but I will not go above 150 grams of carbs on Saturdays, either.

 

Plan:

 

Week 1: 100 carbs max

Week 2: 60 carbs max

Week 3: 100 carbs max

Week 4: 60 carbs max

Week 5: 100 carbs max

Week 6: 60 carbs max

 

A = perfectly done

B = 1-3 days of missing my goal

C = 4-5 days of missing my goal

F = another more than 5

 

Goal #2 - Three servings of fruits and/or veggies every day. (+2 CON, +1 WIS)

Easy enough! As long as I make sure to have plenty of them hanging around, this should be easy. The more challenging part will be incorporating veggies into breakfast time!

A = perfectly done

B = 1-2 missed servings

C = 3 - 4 missed servings

F = more than four missed servings

 

Goal #3 - Lose ten more pounds (+2 DEX, +1 CHA, +1 STR)

I've had this issues with "weekend shenanigans" where I eat a little more than I should, and end up having to work a little harder to make progress in general. Wasn't always super awful, but enough to be frustrating! I believe my other two goals have set me up to do this, no problem! Will keep working out as I have been too!

Life Goal - Seriously, get the darn book ready! (+3 WIS, +1 CHA)

This time, I'm going to make the goal: Get the book in the hands of the one who will do the final proofreading, which means I must get the intro done, and then get it to them! After that, I really have no control over how long they take to do the proofreading. :)

 

Whew!

YAY! Glad to see you back.

 

Breakfast fruit?  SMOOTHIE with your eggs!  1/2 cup of oj (or pineapple juice), 1 cup of fruit (blueberries for me usually), 1 yogurt(I prefer lemon or banana), and I USED to do 2 packets of splenda, but that's all up to you.  I think people sometimes put a teaspoon of honey.

Breakfast smoothies will be great on days I don't have to go out to work early, early! I'll have to limit them to my 100 carbs max days!

 

Other than that, it'll just be making sure to prep veggies so they're easy to prepare with my eggs at 4 in the morning!

yeah, I tried a sweet potato hash but I think there was too much moisture, because it became just mashed potato-y.  I'd like to try it again though.  Especially since I'm starting to get tired of eggs.  A spoonful of whole 30 pasta sauced worked well- kinda like your salsa idea.

Sweet potato hash does sound really yummy, in theory!

 

I like adding taco meat to my eggs, when we have leftovers. ;D

 

This morning's veggie during breakfast: hatch chile chopped and mixed with my eggs... nice wake up! lol

Rounding up week one!

 

I accidentaly went over my 100 carbs on Friday! Not by a ton, but there it is anyway. :)

 

Kinda freaking out about 60 max carbs a day next week, but I know that having the right foods available in plentiful supply will be critical. I'm about to head to the store to get what we're lacking!

 

Other than that, everything else is steady as she goes!

Planning and preparation gets you most of the way to success!  Good job!

Aaaand here I am.

 

Ugh.

 

Got some stupid head cold... lingered all last week. For two days I was ravenous, then all of the sudden my body was like "Nope. Not even remotely hungry." I didn't stick to any particular carb max amount, I just ate what felt right and drank plenty of fluids. Lost 3 pounds, at least!

 

Slowly getting back to "normal" this week. Did a 15 minute workout yesterday, even though I intended to do 30. Felt like I was moving through warm mud!

 

I have now lost 4 of the 10 pounds I determined I would lose during this challenge! :)

Definitely! Think it all tried to settle into bronchitis though, which I am totally fighting. I ain't got time for that! ;) Good thing I wasn't still neck-deep in my old eating habits... my body was much more prepped to deal with the ickies this time!

Yeah, I once had that happen for about a month. Absolutely miserable... so very thankful it's going away quickly! Just a light cough today and breathing is *much* easier!

Good to hear.  A few years back I had it real bad.  Lasted a couple of months, and still had a cough for awhile after that.
