Darkfoxx: Seven Is The Number of the Dwarves

Maybe that is why I have been craving a big burger lately. I want like 1,000,000 of them. It must be the low on protein thing!

Hmmmm I will look into Nerd Fitness Academy. You like it, I take it?

Lol. That's exactly what I've always craved when I'm low on protein - I get a whopper headache, I'm evil, and I need a big medium-rare burger. 

 

To stave off the meat hangries, I've taken to carrying jerky around in my bag for emergencies - my favorite brand right now is Krave -- it's expensive like all jerky, but at Target it's $4-something a bag. 

 

I like NF Academy, I think. It has a lot of great info - I was surprised I even learned a few things - and the workouts are good if you are into self-directed workouts. I am happy to support Steve and am cool with having a chance to give back (membership costs $50-something for the basic level and $100 for the master level -- I did the basic level).

 

That said, I'm still not a fan of self-directed workouts - keeping going is hard for me when there's not a video trainer egging me on, and I suck at keeping track of things like reps and sets in my head. I do like the workouts I'm doing and I do think they're doing me good - and it's nice to always have something like that in my back pocket going forward. I'm going to complete the dumbbell workout level 1 program - jump back to my video trainer program - and then possibly jump back to another Academy program after that.

 

NF vs. my video trainer - I think NF will be better for building more muscle faster than the videos; the video program is a whole body deal with lots of cardio mixed in with weights and it's harder to track progress when you're doing a mix of 30 workouts, as opposed to 3.

Week 1 Days 5-7 Recap & Weekly Wrapup


 


Goal 1 (NF Academy workouts)


 


Friday: This was supposed to be my NF day - I rested in order to go out to eat with the hubbs


Saturday: Intervals


Sunday: This was supposed to be the day I made up my NF workout. I hate lifting weights right after I wake up - so I convinced myself & my hubby that taking the morning off was reasonable. And then we switched plans for the day - walked 30 blocks + went to the Intrepid Air & Space Museum (which is on an aircraft carrier - no resting there). Needless to say, after hours of walking & standing, I was pooped. Totally didn't do my workout when we got home like I had planned. 


 


Week: I'm giving myself a B for the week. I did 2 out of 3 workouts, but there is really no good excuse for not doing the third. Yeah, I was tired, but I wasn't dead. 


 


 


Goal 2 (Zombies, Run! 5k Trainer workouts)


 


Friday: This wasn't an interval day


Saturday: I did my intervals in the sunshine in the morning before leaving for the day


Sunday: This wasn't an interval day


 


I completed Workout 3 for Week 4. My username on Zombies, Run! is darkfoxx - check out my stats if you want to stalk. 


 


5 minute walk


5 minute "free run" - combo of jogging & walking


Repeat 5x - 10 knee lifts (per leg) / 1 minute slow walk / 1 minute fast walk - mostly fast walks because it was sunny


Repeat 5x - 1 minute walk / 1 minute jog


15 minute "free run" - combo of jogging & walking - a lot of jogging, because I can


 


I had an app malfunction in the middle and my stats are split into two parts


 


Distance: 1.11 miles / 2.22 miles


Duration: 16:50 / 35:37


Average Speed: 3.95 mph / 3.74 mph


Average Pace: 15:10 min/mi / 16:03 min/mi


Calories: 95 / 187


 


I'm happy to report that I made it a few blocks further ... Coney is within my grasp! 


 


A for the week - I did all three workouts and I keep adding distance. 


 


 


Goal 3 (diet metrics)


 


Friday


 


Breakfast: DH's green smoothie


Lunch: Leftover pot roast & brussels sprouts 


Dinner: Went to the Italian joint up the road and had a chicken cutlet with lemon caper sauce & mushrooms & artichoke hearts + 1 potato croquette and 2 slices of baguette with butter


 


Calories: 942


Carbs: 78 (yay!)


Fat: 25


Protein: 77 (whoo hoo!)


Sodium: 887


Sugar: 26


 


Not bad - I'm sure my reporting isn't 100% accurate here - I had to guess at dinner.  


 


Saturday


 


Breakfast: Cave Man paleo-friendly Maple Nut bar


Snack: Still starving after "breakfast" - had a 100 calorie pack of sea salt almonds


Lunch: Went to my paleo shangri la and had my favorite mashed root vegetable bowl with Hu joe and a tiny little gluten & grain free 2-bite roll


Snack: Had a coffee with coconut cream


Dinner: Heated up some leftover pot roast


Snack: More almonds, this time plain


 


Calories: 1,153


Carbs: 60 (whoo hoo!)


Fat: 60


Protein: 83 (whoo hoo!)


Sodium: 587


Sugar: 13


 


Not bad at all. I'm now officially made of almonds. 


 


Sunday


 


Breakfast: Brunch at Seersucker - coffee with soy milk, 1 biscuit slathered in salted maple butter & tart cherry jam, most of my serving of hoppin' john with 1 fried egg & cheddar sprinkle


Lunch: None - that ounce or so of cheese had me full all day


Dinner: In celebration of my mom's birthday, sushi. I had steamed wasabi shrimp shumai, a spicy salmon roll, salmon sashimi, salmon nigiri & a ginger dressing salad. 


 


Calories: 1,667


Carbs: 131 (boo!)


Fat: 65


Protein: 107 (whoo hoo!)


Sodium: 2,590


Sugar: 14


 


I'm refusing to feel bad about today or deduct points off for it. I ate what I wanted at breakfast - and didn't even finish my plate - skipped lunch, and celebrated my mother's birthday with sushi like I do every year. 


 


For the week: A. Even though I went over on carbs on Sunday I'm not beating myself up about it. It was a known overage (mom's birthday) and I'm cool with that.

@JessFit: you have a point. It's not like I was sitting on my thumbs - I have a tendency to get crazy wrapped up in 'the rules' + I'm a completionist, so while it's not *actually* the end of the world ... I have to keep reminding myself that I won't fail in flames for not lifting weights one day. 

 

I do need to be vigilant and a little hard on myself - I am not liking the lift days as much as the zombies days. It has zero to do with the workouts, and everything to do with me completely sucking at self-directed workouts. I think it might be time to enlist the hubbs more - maybe he can act as my trainer.

Week 2 Day 1 Recap


 


Goal 1 (NF Academy workouts)


 


Today was the start of my third week of Nerd Fitness Academy Dumbbell Division 1 workouts. I did workout A, which consisted of:


 


5-7 minute warmup routine


 


5 sets of 5 - Goblet Squats - 20 pound weight


5 sets of 5 - Dumbbell Bench Press - 20 pound weight(s) - I got them done, but it was hard and I really needed the hubbs spotting closely and making me finish


3 sets of 10 - Incline Pushups - with a few seconds rest between sets


10 reps x 5 - Knee Pushups - I did them - with less trouble than last time


25 reps x 5 - Bodyweight Squat - Done - with less trouble than last time


:30 x 5 - Plank - Good - shaky at the edges of time


:30 on/:30 off for 5 minutes - Burpees - I hit 9 on each rep 


 


And I wasn't gassed out at the end of my workout. Score!


 


Dammit I forgot to stretch again afterward.


 


 


Goal 2 (Zombies, Run! 5k Trainer workouts)


 


This wasn't a Zombies, Run! day - no workout here. 


 


 


Goal 3 (diet metrics)


 


Breakfast: DH's green smoothie


Lunch: 1/4 of a kabocha squash, roasted, with some sort of really tasty chimichurri sauce I completely don't remember making & a sprinkle of bacon


The 'Squash Is Not Filling' Snack: 1 ounce unsalted almonds


Dinner: Slow cooked short ribs, parsnip & carrots in wine and beef stock *drool*


The 'Oh Shit, I'm Not Going To Make My Protein Goal' Snack: 2 ounces salmon jerky


 


Calories: 1,151


Carbs: 65 (whoo hoo!)


Fat: 90 


Protein: 73 (whoo hoo!)


Sodium: 2,659


Sugar: 24


 


I'm not gonna lie - today felt a bit gravage-y. I totally should have waited an hour or two after lunch to have a snack - smelling beef all day made me not so hungry for dinner (I totally ate anyways), and forcing that jerky down was hard. But, I hit all my goals so there is that.

It's a weekday - no work expected or completed.

Looks like you're doing great DF :D

 

How are you liking the NF Academy?  Would you recommend it?

 

Oh and how did you make salmon jerky?  That sounds peculiar but tasty :D

Eh... kinda? I'm happy to support Steve and I think it's a really good program, overall. For me, it's not the best - I hate self-directed workouts and they're really hard for me to do and stick with. 

 

If I could work along to a video, I'd be loving the setup much more. As it stands, I dread NF days. 

 

I also don't think I get that great of a workout -- but then again, I'm used to much more cardio mixed in with my weight training, and when I'm directing myself I don't work as hard. 

 

So ... I'd recommend it if you're a chick (for now - the men's program is coming soon) who is good with self-directed non-video exercises. I think I may be getting stronger? I'm up to 20 pound weights and was doing 10-15 at the beginning, so there's that. 

 

As for the jerky, I didn't make it - bought some in Seattle when I was there last year and had completely forgotten about it until now. It's pretty spectacular.

AHHHH so much to catch up on!

 

I have to admit, I'm glad I went with my instinct and didn't join the NF academy - I would be having the exact same issues you are, I'm certain. I'm really digging this whole class situation, I work much harder! I'd like to support Steve though, I cannot deny how much help this site has been. I better go order some merch...

 

Food AS ALWAYS looks delicious - glad to see you didn't beat yourself up about an intentional "cheat" day, AND got right back to proper eating. Double win! Also, your talk of ribs is making me drool... I've been having quite a hankering for ribs lately.. I'm just going to have to give in and make some, even though I'm the only one who will eat them. I even tried ordering some in Mexico, but they were out that day! Of course.

Yeah ... I'm glad I did my support part, but I'm not gonna lie -- finishing is going to be h-a-r-d. I don't wanna. 

 

I have a few "cheat" days planned that I'm not going to feel bad about - my mom's birthday (she's been dead for a few years and I celebrate with a meal she would have loved -- lucky for me, that pretty much doesn't rule anything out), my birthday, the two big holidays, new years, and my hubby's birthday. 

 

I will try to mitigate damage a bit on the big holidays -- I'll try to fill my plate with more green beans than white potatoes & sweet potatoes with dairy in them on Thanksgiving - and will try to mitigate my white potato consumption on Christmas. New Years I'll try to make meatball versions of the dumplings I love to go alongside the dumpling versions so I at least have a chance to stick within metrics. 

 

My birthday, I have no idea what the plan is, but I've heard it won't be as crazybananas as last year (we did a tasting menu) - so hopefully I can stick on target-ish; my hubby's bday is always steak - so possibly no issue there? I'll try to behave wherever we go, anyways. 

 

Other than that, the plan is to not really alter how we eat. The inlaws are coming into town the weekend before Christmas, which will be difficult (FIL has a wicked sweet tooth); I've got my yearly cookie batch - of which I sample a bit if there is enough, but half cookies are fine with me. 

 

--

 

The short ribs I made were fantastic and went over really well. I got boneless ribs and dutch ovened them with thyme, red wine, beef stock, rosemary, garlic & root vegetables for a few hours (3?) until falling apart and then cooked with the lid off an hour or so to reduce the sauce a bit. A big hit.

Week 2 Day 2 Recap


 


Goal 1 (NF Academy workouts)


 


This wasn't a NFA day. No workout here.


 


 


Goal 2 (Zombies, Run! 5k Trainer workouts)


 


I completed Workout 1 for Week 5. My username on Zombies, Run! is darkfoxx - check out my stats if you want to stalk. 


 


5 minute walk


5 minute "free run" - combo of jogging & walking (I did 2.5 - 3 minutes in a row jogging here)


Repeat 8x - :30 walking


Repeat 8x - 1 minute run


Repeat 8x - 6 heel lifts


10 minute "free run" - combo of jogging & walking - a good combo of the two - jogged a block or 2, walked half a block - repeat


5 minutes stretching


10 minute "free run" - combo of jogging & walking - more good comboing here. Did another 2-3 minute stretch at the end here to try and get back home


 


 


Distance: 4.03 miles


Duration: 1:02:05


Average Speed: 3.90 mph


Average Pace: 15:23 min/mi


Calories: 344


 


I made it to within probably a block of the ocean today. Hit the Brighton Beach Blvd. train bridge and turned around. I think I went a block or so too far - the workout ended with me being 5 blocks from home, so I walked the rest of the way. On another note, it was crazy windy for tonight's training. I definitely need to find some sort of gaiter and wind blocking glasses for just such nights. 


 

 

 


Goal 3 (diet metrics)


 


Breakfast: DH's green smoothie


Lunch: Baked kabocha squash with fried egg, bacon and chimichurri sauce


Dinner: Pan sauteed pork chops with twice-baked sweet potatoes (Japanese sweet potato + goat cheese, butter, scallions & white pepper - topped with pecans)

A great day. I felt appropriately full all day - and didn't go over on carbs, despite having two meals of squash/potato. Whoo hoo!

Wow, you're doing great DF (workout) and now you're calling them "runs" hmm... change in mental view there?  ;)  I still haven't bit the bullet and bought the app... >_>  Kind of a mental block, don't wanna lose cause I'm a fatty >_>

 

As for the NF Academy, thank you for the honesty :D  I can see how that's an issue, see I can do both, but I can agree that I don't push myself as hard if there's not something either moving me forward or someone pushing me (which I've not had yet, but think would be nice once I'm healed up).  Have you thought about doing a Google Hangout thing with someone on those NF days, someone that could do the same with you?  Since Google Hangout has video chat, it would be like someone skyping in to workout with you.  Just thinking of ways to hack that fear and turn it around into something positive.

Lol. Yeah, the mental shift is starting to go a little - I'm not there yet, but shopping for cold weather "running gear" has helped. 

 

You can totally do it - Week 1 was totally doable! 

 

10 minute walk

Repeat 10x: 1 minute walk, 15 seconds slow run

10 minutes "free form" run - walk or run or whatever as much as you want. 

 

I hadn't thought of a Google Hangout, but that could be just the thing I need - now to find someone to actually participate. Thanks for the plan! :)

Hmmm. I would volunteer, but I don't have the room to workout in front of our computer... we're planning to get a new laptop soon (the old one bit the dust) but it'll probably be closer to Christmas. Something to keep in mind for the future though!

Week 2 Day 3 Recap


 


Goal 1 (NF Academy workouts)


 


Today was Week 2 Workout B of Nerd Fitness Academy Dumbbell Division 1 workouts. My workout consisted of:


 


5-7 minute warmup routine


 


5 sets of 5 - Dumbbell Deadlift - 22.5 pound weights


5 sets of 5 - Weighted Hip Raise - 22.5 pound weight


3 sets of 10 - Incline Pushups - with little rest between sets - off the back of the couch


25 reps - Jumping Pull Ups - I did them all; I wasn't speedy, but they got done - with a jump and the resistance band


10 reps x 5 - One Arm Dumbbell Row - 22.5 lbs.


10 reps x 5 - Jump Squat - Done and done


10 reps x 5 - Hanging Knee Tucks - Still with the killing of my hands. This was a little less agonizing this time around, but still not pleasant. 


 


Finisher: :30 on/:30 off for 7 minutes - Shuttle Sprints - Didn't do them. Didn't want to take the time or expend the effort.


 


Apparently not stretching hasn't killed me yet - so that's a plus. 


 


 


Goal 2 (Zombies, Run! 5k Trainer workouts)


 


This wasn't a Zombies, Run! day - no workout here. 


 


 


Goal 3 (diet metrics)


 


Breakfast: DH's green smoothie


Lunch: A mish-mash of three nights' leftovers: the last of the smokey pot roast, vegetables from my braised short ribs, and more of that chimichurri I don't remember making - all topped with an egg. Yum. 


Dinner: Broiled skirt steak with a semi-successful delicata squash/asiago/pomegranate molasses/fennel "salad"


 


Calories: 1,144


Carbs: 60 (whoo hoo!)


Fat: 66


Protein: 79 (whoo hoo!)


Sodium: 1,518


Sugar: 18


 


Calories were great, fat looked good, carbs were nice and low and protein was on-point. A successful day. 


 


 


LQ (closet monsters)


 


It's a weekday, so no work expected or completed here.


 


 


SQ (jump to new fitness when main goals are complete)


 


It's not time for this goal to come into effect yet.

I just want you to know that I'm imagining you making a chimichurri sauce while sleep walking or something, totally zombie style. It's pretty hilarious inside my head.

 

On a serious note, you're rocking it! I'll even let your lack of finisher slide, because I know you haven't actually been slacking :)

I've been falling behind on the forums this week, so I'm going to get a jump-start on yours, how did yesterday go?  That was a Zombies day wasn't it?
