Kiazi - Beeing prepared for.... stuff - Part 1 [Nutrition]


Recommended Posts

I hate it when things happen that I'm not prepared for, somehow this is the motive of my whole life.

Stuff to be prepared for reaches from "when the shit hits the fan" to "beeing able to invite neighbours over without getting a panic attack because the living room is all messed up".

 

A large part of beeing able to cope with stuff is a healthy body, so here I'am.

I'am skinny (or skinny fat), never been overweight but never been really fit. For some years now I'm trying to change that.

I'm doing yoga 1x per week for 1,5 years or so in the gym, I'm indoor climbing/bouldering(but not as regularly as I'd like too) and for sometime now I'm dooing  circle training on some machines in the gym. (Because a coworker startet it in the gym and needed a accountability buddy, and I figured those machine would be better than no weight training at all. I'm scared of free weights...).

Sometimes I'm running with the help of zombiesrun or together with a neighbour.

 

But my goal for this fitness challenge isn't fitness related, it's nutrition based.

For large parts of my live I didn't ate any fruits except bananas and apples, and vegetables only cooked well and only some. Meat was my food.

My current partner likes to cook, so naturally I'm trying more and more things now, but my diet is still far a way from being full of vitamins. I think I'd feel better if I would get more of the right stuff into my body. So that will be my goal in my first challenge.

 

Main Quest for this Challenge

Getting enough Vitamins and Minerals to keep my body healthy.

Enough means for this challenge: at least 80% of the recommended amount for every value listet on paleotrack

 

Quest 1: Track Food intake daily on paleotrack.com as exactly as possible

 

Quest 2: at least 5 days per week a serving of raw vegetable and fruit

 

Quest 3: at least 3 time per week scrambled or hard boiled eggs

 

 

Life Quest:

Spend some time with real persons outside of work at least 2 hour per week

 

 

Oh and I will try to write a little story around it/move my report to a fantasy world. I don't have a history in writing things,but I always wanted, too. It will be good exercise for my english skills, too as I'm not a native speaker.

 

 

"Damn, I have to get my shit together if I want to survive this," Kiazi thought while looking at her food storage.

It was already two weeks since the THING happened. Until now she and her partner hid in their apartment, hoping that somehow everything would get better. But it didn't. It only got worse.

Now the food storage was empty and she felt somehow empty, too.

She has to build up some energy to master life in this broken world.

The door of the food storage room made a loud noise when Kiazi closed it with emphasis.

Hello!

 

I’m Hazard, an ambassador for the Assassin Guild.  Though it's not one of your goals this challenge, with your interest in Bouldering/Climbing you may have future goals similar to what people in our guild work on, and we’d love to help you reach your them!

 

If you ever have any questions or need help with anything, I'll happily assist you.  An easy way to get my attention is to use the quote button at the bottom right corner of any of my posts.  I have the forum setting turned on to alert me when somebody quotes me using that button, so it's a quick easy way to let me know you're talking to me. :)  You can also get in touch with me by posting on my own challenge topic or by using the forum private messenger system (the envelope button at the very top of the screen).

 

Here is a link to more information about the Assassin guild.

And here is a link to the Assassin phonebook with a list of various exercises/skills that guild members are working on for this challenge, as well as links to their challenge topics.

 

There are numerous other people in the Assassin’s guild who you can also get help from.  I recommend stopping by the Assassin's Den – a general chat thread in the guild forum – and introducing yourself.  You can always ask questions there too.

 

In any case, I’ll stop by from time to time to check in with you and offer support.  Good luck!

Hey Kiazi! Nice goals, diet seems to be the hardest part of fitness. The tracker you're using seems pretty info-intense -- is it really time-consuming to enter everything?

Seems like we have some similar interests - I'm also into climbing and yoga, and trying to fix my diet in six weeks! Will be checking up on you. Good luck!

Hi myrlien, time needed to enter stuff depends pretty much on what you eat and how perfect you want it to have.

There is a database behind it, you just enter something in the searchfield and it suggests stuff.

Fruits and vegetables work pretty good this way, after you choose one, you enter the weight. It also offers typical serving sizes for the product. So a banana comes in different "lengths" while a apple might have a diameter and e.g. for spices etc. it has a preset for table and teaspoon.

 

You have the ability to create own foods, and even whole meals for ease of use, too. But searching all the nutrition data in the internet and entering is really time consuming. I tried it for a while and it drove me crazy. 

 

So if I can't find something, I'll just use the next best thing. 

 

Sometimes I'm actually weighing stuff, most times I just estimate. For the sake of my sanity... Might be I'm underestimating stuff, but as I'm not trying to lose weight, I can live with some numbers beeing smaller than the real thing. 

 

The risk to get lost in entering and searching data for what I just ate and than losing all my motiviation is much to high.

Hi

It looks like you've got a bit of everything in your goals. That's good. Doing all the things is no bad thing at all. I have taken the liberty of tagging you with an adventurers tag because it seems the best fit for your raneg of interests but you might want to check out the assassins (they are great at climbing), druids (for the yoga) and of course stop by the scout tavern if you want to show off your Abel Township base. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/46582-scouts-tavern-general-chat-and-questions/page-15 . Scouts are all about endurance sports like running, walking, cycling, swimming, etc. Anyway, whatever path you choose, enjoy your first challenge.

Thank you everyone!

 

I love your life quest. This is something i struggle with too, i live 2hrs away from family, my girlfriend lives across the atlantic and all my friends are coupled up and most have young babies. So i find myself alone quite a lot at weekends which frankly, is miserable.

 

With me it is the other way around, lots of people I could do something with, but I'm not really interested that much in social contact. My boyfriend regularly hangs out with our neighbours in their garden, so I don't even have to drive some where. I just don't want to. But if I'm there too, I tend to like it anyway. Therefore the goal. One of our neighbours has a baby too, they just bring it with them and everyone in the group gets a go on holding the baby or moving the buggy. 

 

Thank you for all the guild information, I've not decided yet, but as I understood I have time until the next challenge?

It kinda feels like a competition between the guilds, who will recruit the most new players? 

 

So the first two days of the challenge are over.

Looks Good so far   :).

 

Managed to log everything, ate already one of 3 portions of eggs and ate a red pepper, banana and strawberries every day.

 

My intake for Vitamins E, D, K is to low, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Copper are problematic, too.

We want you to be in the place where you'll be most likely to succeed, wherever that ends up being. :)   And there's no rush to decide.  There's all 6 weeks of this challenge to think about it, and another week break before the next challenge begins too.  Also, while you will spend each challenge with a particular guild of your choice, you don't have to do every challenge with the same guild.  You can switch each time a new challenge begins if you want to.

I’m excited to see you’re using a 5K app – I’ve been training with the Zombies, Run! 5K app myself. I’ve really enjoyed it and made a lot of progress. If you’d like to hang out with other Rebels who are using C25K or another running app, come visit our Accountabilibuddies group! Again, the link is in my signature or you can click here.

Thank you both for your explanations :).

 

I really like zombies5k, but unfortunately, right now IF I'm running AT ALL it is together with my neighbour and I think it is rude to tell herr shhhht they are telling me something.

Maybe running will be one of my goals in the next challenge.

 

Wednesday: no (raw) vegetable :(

Thur: Salad, Pepper, Strawberries

Fr: 2 Scrambled Eggs, Banana, no (raw) vegetable

 

It was late in the evening when Kiazi carefully opened the front door of their house.

The air tasted like warm rain and smoke. She looked around and found the trail of smoke that might be causeing the smell. It might be the big barren at the other side of the river, she thought. No danger from that, for now.

As she couldn't spot any persons out on the street, she decided it was safe to slip out and sneek to the garden to refill her storage and tummy a little.

The garden was framed by a fence and large trees so she felt relatively secure here. Nobody could see her when she took her clothes of and jumped right into the swimming pool. It felt good to lose that layer of sweat and dirt. The water-taps in the apartment stopped working a long with the power when the THING happened.

Still wet from the quick swim she started gathering strawberries. Now she was thankful that she decided against flowers..

Hi Kiazi,

 

Thought I'd come and check out your challenge goals after your comments on mine.  We definitely sound very similar!  I know exactly what you mean about having the options to be sociable but choosing not to.  We'll get there though I'm sure!  And I would count going for a run with your neighbour as being sociable.  Any interaction counts in my book!!  (And you're getting bonus exercise in too!!)

 

And I know you won't believe me right now but after a few weeks of eating fruit & veg you'll be wondering why you avoided it!  I'm not sure what you're like for snacking at work but I take pre-prepared fruit/veg like carrot sticks, a tub of baby plum tomatoes or mango chunks for times I'm feeling a bit peckish during the day.

 

Also, if the app you're using is a bit time consuming I've used the myFitness pal app before when I was first seeing what areas of my diet needed improving.  I don't think it's as detailed as the one you're using but it's easy to search for food and gives you a breakdown of your protein/carb/fat intakes.  So that's another option if you're looking for something simpler!

 

Good luck!

Week 1 is over.

 

How have I done?

 

Food Logging:  B

Logged everything the same day, only some meals very rough estimated. My partner cooked something with an unknown amount of vegetables and liquids :/. Very delicious but hard to log.

 

Eggs: A (3 of 3)

 

Vegetable/fruit at least 5 of 7 days: A:  missed raw Vegetables on Wednesdays and fridays

 

Main Goal:

No clear trend, some values got better, some worse.

I need more Fish.

Omega und Sodium ratios look better than before.

Nice job on week 1 --- what are you  using to log your food?  Those graphs look really helpful!

Thank you both.

I sometimes feel that my goals are to small but I know that they are right for me right now.

 

Forget to mention: Life quest met last week. Eating with the neighbours on friday. (Pork baked in salt)

 

Graphs are all from http://paleotrack.com/, it's free.

The report function (graph from day 1 to day x) is premium only I think (I have a habit off paying for premium services online -.-)

 

Good start in week two:

 

Eggs (1/3)

Mon: No raw vegetable :(

Tu: Had Salad as vegetable, Banana, apple, strawberries

Darn, I wanted to look at it especially because of the graphs!

I'm not paleo and don't try to be as I don't like meat or the meat industry but still wanted to check this out because it has sooo much info.

 

Love your social goal.

I'm pretty lazy when it comes to visiting people and my neighbors aren't so .... ehhh interesting... either.

 

Your storytelling is really good and catching the imagination... It's like a film is playing behind my eyes when I read your story :D

 

Edit: Uhh uhh! *jumps up and down* Nearly forgotten... have you checked out the Vegetable Alphabet challenge? It's great for more veggies and stuff :)

Sorry for not updating. I had a nerdy thing going on :). I went to a guild meeting of my WOW guild at the other end of the country from Friday to Monday,

We visited a theme park with lots of roller coasters, ate lots of meats and had a ton of fun. Oh and we visited an Asian restaurant with buffet...

I ate frosh legs and zebra!

 

On Sunday when we where only 5 people so we walked a little trough the nearby wood and saw a deer :)

 

What I find strange is that my eye twitched the whole day in the theme park. In my body this is usually a sign of stress or magnesium deficit. Maybe I was just too scared from all the rollercoasters. 

 

I'm still adding stuff I ate to my log so I can't create a weekly feedback yet.

But social goal totally completed :)

 

Started the new week so far with vegetable 2/5 and fruits 3/5.

My raw vegetable of choice is nearly everyday a pepper of any color. I will look into the vegetable alphabet at some later challenge I think. I'm easy to distract and want to focus on eating anything at all :D
