Dr. Kate: No Pain = Win


Dr. Kate

Recommended Posts

MY MAIN QUEST
Health.  Keep my autoimmune disorder quiescent. Build habits for the long haul.  I will be fit at 90.  This will be more likely if I'm fit and healthy now.
 
Goal 1:
Move:
Strength (NFA Bodyweight Brigade Beta Level 2) M/W/F    
Run to gym/cardio kickboxing class Tu  (or run a mile or 2 on the treadmill before class if it's too cold out)
Run to gym/yoga class Thurs  (or run a mile or 2 on the treadmill before class if it's too cold out)
Run 3-5 miles Sun
 
Goal 2:
Eat:
NF level 9/10 paleo.  
Exceptions: No nightshades, grapes or grape products.
Will eat:
1-2 servings bone broth/day
2+ servings fermented foods/day
Up to 1oz. 85% chocolate/day
 
Proper food is really helpful for keeping my inflammation in check.  :)
 
Goal 3:
Sleep:
8 hours of sleep.  As I tend to wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake for several hours, this means a 21:40 bedtime for a 7:40 alarm.  
Bedtime routine with 3yo starting at 19:00.  Read to 9yo from 19:45-21:00.  Read for myself after I kick 9yo to bed.

 

Side Quest: Read through the bible this year.  Bought a chronological bible for my Kindle. So I should be at 11-12% of the Bible by the end of this challenge.  Currently at 5% (I started before the first of the year).  

 

I will be increasing the mileage on my Sunday run slowly.  I'm signed up for a Half marathon in May.  I'll be doing a more 'formal' training schedule for this starting about the time of the next challenge.  I have been doing 3 miles, but will increase my Sunday run to 5 miles by the end of this challenge.

6 Jan:

workout done

 

ferments ingested

 

broth enjoyed

 

excessive chocolate.  :nightmare:  It bugs me when this happens.  I don't derive that much more pleasure from more chocolate.  It's just something to grab. :doh:  Need to a)drink some water/green tea or b)grab something else like a carrot or c)practice one of these http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/468 or these http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/2478 instead.

 

Running late for 3yo's bedtime routine.  No school tomorrow (due to excessive cold) so we can sleep in a bit, but I need to get on that soon.  :)

Will say that over the holidays I: 

 

1) only did my Thursday runs/yoga and my Sunday runs.

 

2) ate all the junky food and gained all the weight.  

 

I am o.k. with this because it was a conscious decision to do so.  It's two weeks out of my life, and I'm in this for the long haul.  A few weeks is not my life. :)

And my body REALLY surprised me by not going into an auto-immune flare.  I think all the ferements/probiotics/broth is helping my gut/gut immunity.   :positive:   I have no intention of routinely eating all the carbs, but it was nice to know that my body seems to be in a healthier place than it has been in the past.  :)  I didn't eat some of my biggest triggers (nightshades and grape products) but I did eat a bit of dairy and gluten.

Hi, Kate. Welcome back.

 

Half marathon as a goal. It's totally cool.

Good luck and let's get stronger!

Jan 7:

 

More than 9 hours of sleep, but only because I was able to sleep late.

 

Run 1.3 miles/kickboxing.

 

Ingested ferments/broth. Only ate @ 10 grams of 85% chocolate. 

 

Read several chapters, still at 5%

 

 

Lots of DOMs from yesterday's BW workout.  No strength training for several weeks = DOMS when you do it again.  :):lol:

Jan 8:

 

Lights out by 10:00, epsom salt bath and sleepy cherries/glutamine first.  Didn't quite get 8 hours, but I tried.

 

Lacked motivation to do workout.  Did it pseudo anrgy bird style - did all exercise sets once (even though normally the workout has two different circuits) and then did it three times spaced through the day.  Did all the exercise, just not all at once.  

 

Ferments/broth down my gullet.  Ate the rest of the 25g bar of chocolate I started eating on the 7th.

 

Read some.  Still at 5%.

 

DOMS still domy.  Part of the lack of motivation to do the standard workout.

 

Looking forward to Yoga today.  :)

Jan 9:

 

Lights out by 9:45.  Not quite 8 hours of sleep.

 

Ferments/broth ingested.  Need to start a new batch of kombucha and kraut.....  And buy more bones. 

 

Due to time limitations (beyond my control) :(  I was only able to run a mile with my yoga.  But yoga was great.

 

Fell asleep reading.  Still at 5%.

Up late retrieving husband from airport and comforting vomity 9yo.   (What's up with the stomach bugs?  He had another one less than a month ago. GAH!)  Got 8 hours sleeping from 2 to 10.  :(  :nightmare:

 

Ingested broth/ferments.  Ate way too many carbs and way too little protein.

 

Took a short walk.  Too short.

 

Tomorrow is 'long' run, koombucha brew and cabbage shred day. :)

I would rarely sleep more than 6 hours. I wish I could sleep more.

Jan12:

 

8 hours of sleep, but started too late

 

enjoyed ferments/broth  Ate too many carbs, but did get in enough protein.

 

ran only 2.6 miles.  Forgot my shoes, and my bare feet needed to be finished on the tread mill.  I no want toe blisters.

 

Clicked over to 7% on my reading.

 

Finished my new batch of kombucha before I started vomiting.  My cabbages are sitting on the kitchen counter all lonely like.

 

 

Jan 13/14:

I has the flu.  All over muscle soreness like full body DOMS, and vomiting, and fever, and chills.  GAH.

 

So I get to be in bed/on the couch until I'm better.

 

Broth is ok.

Got @ 8 hours of sleep. 

 

Ferments.  Broth in soup.  Good food day.  High in calories, but hungry and making up for not eating the past 3 days.  Ate 'food I eat' and not carby junk.

 

Ran 1.5 miles and had an awesome Yoga class.  :positive:

 

Didn't read.  May read some if I have time before lights out.  :)
