Sairin's Quest for the Next 10


Sairin

Recommended Posts

Hey all!  I've been gone for far too long, and some of the success I'd had has started to backslide.

 

SOOO.....

 

Ultimate Mission Goal:  Lose a Total of 150 lbs.

 

I topped out at 315.  I'm currently at 278.  THIS IS DOABLE!!!

 

Challenge Goals

 

1.  Do Angry Birds Workout 3 times a week, cardio twice a week.

2.  Lost 10 lbs.

3.  No soda.

4.  Install new doors to kids' bedrooms.

 

They're small goals, but I figure everything beyond this is just a bonus.

 

Can't wait for this challenge to get started!

How will you be grading these?  Like are all of these pass/fail if you miss one? Or will you give yourself a letter grade or something?   

 

I had to lose 140, and I'm getting there slowly.  We can do this.

Definitely NOT pass/fail.  Because even a tiny bit of success is still success.  I'll rate it on a 1-10, only allowing a zero if I fall below my starting point (ie:  Gain more weight, shamelessly chug Mt. Dew, "forget" to work out, or just not bother to even shop for doors)  10 will be stellar, I achieved all of the goals, and stuck my landing.

 

:D

Thanks!  I'll be awarding experience points according to how well I do, so my total success will determine how much I level up.

 

Can't wait for tomorrow!  LET'S DO THIS!!!

DAY ONE!!!

 

Thus far I have said "NAY!" to the vending machine that sits a 30 second walk from my desk at work.  SMALL VICTORIES!!!

 

Breakfast was yogurt (need to go Greek, I think, and go for less sugar in it) and coffee.

 

I went for baked fish, seasoned rice (only a little), raw carrots, and a pear for lunch instead of hitting the cafeteria.

 

Getting ready to start the first body weight workout I've done in a year or so.  Gonna hurt so awesomely tomorrow!

 

Now, if only they made bras in my size that are workout compatible....

How did your work out go?

 

I played badminton yesterday and my bazoomas really got in the way; thinking I could play sport in a fashion bra was a foolish idea!  I think I need to shop for some bras that have a bit more coverage!

Right?  There's something in the undergarment industry that has it against fat girls trying to get in shape.

 

It went ok.  I ended up walking instead of doing the bodyweight.  I fell down my stairs a couple of months ago, and every now and again the hip that I fractured says "NO!" to anything involving deep dips like squats or lunges.  I'm planning on trying again tonight after the kiddos pass out.

 

Should bodyweight stuff prove to be too painful, I'll be switching that goal out to taking the stairs at work every day instead.  I already literally walk a mile every day just getting from my car to my desk and back again.  Adding the stairs in the garage and the building instead of the elevators will just do that much more!

 

I have thus far said "NAY!" to sodas of all kinds.

 

Not a horrible start, but it can improve!  And it will!

I am pretty sure that there are quite a few 'rehab' body weight progressions, to get you over old injuries.

 

I am a Convict Conditioning fangirl.  The author starts the exercise progression from really easy movements that are fine for over weight or injured people, and the progressions go up to elite athlete level.  It is a set of only six (five if you are a real newbie like me!) compound exercises, so it is simple and pretty quick to go through.  Google 'convict conditioning' and have a look (there are also a load of youtube videos showing you the movements so you don't need to buy the ebook unless you are a nerd like me!).

Hey, let me pass along to you (and everybody else who has old injuries) what has helped me immensely.  It's called "Essential Somatics" and it's a system that focuses on "Pain Relief through Movement"  It's all about how the brain sends impulses to muscles to protect the body during an injury, but then still is sending out the same impulses, resulting in MORE and different pain and tightness.  Make sense?  It certainly did to me.  It's easy and SO relaxing.  This helped me when I had Piraformis Syndrome (muscle spasms in gluteus maximus, causing shooting pain down leg and extreme sciatic nerve pain.  Also is helping my TMJ.  This is not just stretching stuff, but getting into specific body positions, tensing and then completely relaxing to de-program that area.  I can't say enough good about it.   People are avoiding back and shoulder and foot surgery with this stuff.

Ok, bodyweight workout last night went ok.

 

And I'm sore in awesome ways from it!  YES!!!

 

Today the plan is to mow the lawn for cardio.  Sounds too easy, no?  We've got a HUGE double lot that is entirely lawn except for a few trees, the house, and the garage.  And I use a push mower.  I guarantee I'll be jelly by the time I'm done.

 

Add in cleaning the floors in the house today and measuring for doors.

 

Get all of this done, and my reward tonight is to take the family to see Winter Soldier.

 

INCENTIVE!!!

Winter Soldier was awesome.  :D

 

Sadness on the weight.  I've actually gained a pound.  I'm thinking it's my body getting acclimated to what it's doing and possibly trying to store stuff for the apocalypse.  Hoping that when it realizes that no, I mean it, we're doing this on purpose, it'll decide to dump the ballast.

 

I'd forgotten that there would be dance auditions.  Holy Hannah, did that do a number on my legs!  But it felt really really good to use those muscles in a way they hadn't been used in almost 20 years.

 

Today, back to low-level Angry Birds.
