Darkfoxx Cycle 11 - Kicking Ass With Skeletor

‘Bout to need a ‘Come To Jesus’ up in here. 

 

Lately I’ve found the number of fucks I have to give regarding working out and eating right seriously dwindling. I’ve been coasting - and cutting corners — certainly not giving this journey its all; and I’ve been slacking on the NF front, too. This is not what I need to be doing to get where I want to go. 

 

Mudderella was fun - and certainly a very worthy goal (and a great experience), which is all well and good — but that’s over, and has been for a month now. It’s time to move on to the next challenge - this is not a stopping place, but a quantifiable point in my progression timeline. I need to work harder if I’m going to get the results I want to see.

So, I’ve enlisted the help of one of my childhood favorite cartoon characters: Skeletor. There’s a Tumbler out there with daily affirmations superimposed over He-Man scenes featuring Skeletor, and it is fantastic. Heal Yourself Skeletor/Skeletor Is Love, though generally erring on the too-sappy-for-my-taste-side, has some affirmation gold. And some stuff I can work with. 

 

Consider this my ‘come to Jesus’ intervention. This cycle is all about kicking apathy in its ass. Ima take that blergh and shake its little squishy self ‘till I can’t shake any more.

New Overarching Goal

 

My new goal is pretty much the same as my last goal, though I’m swapping the big exercise payout for a series of smaller payouts as the months go. I hope to do another muddy obstacle thingie (I’m thinking either Tough Mudder or a Spartan race), but I haven’t decided which yet and I haven’t yet committed myself to plunking out the entry fees — those suckers are expensive.

Goal 1: Fitness

 

My fitness life works better when I’m following a program. I tried more of a choose your own adventure path last challenge cycle when my program ran out, and while I did it (which is in and of itself a big improvement), I coasted through it. Because reasons. (mainly apathy)

 

Sooooo, it’s back to a schedule for me. This time around, I’m doing the 30 Days to Six Pack Abs program from HasFit + working in a little something on my own by incorporating some of the Spartan Warrior WODs my inbox receives daily and some other things I just like (like yoga, and working on pull-ups). I’ve been at it for a week so far, and I’m not in the doldrums yet - so that’s promising. Spreadsheet

Goal 2: Metrics 

 

I still <3 metrics, and I’m not even crappy at keeping track of what I’m eating while on vacation any more. While last month’s vacation was a huge amount better food-wise than last year’s, I can still do better. The goal here is to button up pre and post-vacation, and to not go too far over metrics during. 

 

As a refresher, my metrics are: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat and around 1500 calories. Water is the recommended by FitBit 64 ounces, and on the weekends I like my step count to be over FitBit’s recommended 10,000. I track food with My Fitness Pal and exercise, sleep and water with the FitBit Flex. Weight and BF are tracked with my FitBit Aria scale.

Goal 3: ???

 

I’m tapped out. Sure, there are other things in life I probably need to work on, but I can’t think of a third in service to the overarching goal. Creativity is nice, but generic. Cleaning is good, but fairly handled. The job stuff is on hold. And I don’t really have the energy to force myself into something new right now. So there’s that.

Life Side Goal

 

This is an extension of my fitness goal/overarching goal. I’m signed up for a muddy Zombie 5k in July, and the hubbs sneakily signed us both up for a “real†5k in late June I say sneakily, because I was too distracted by being on vacation + work drama to really understand what I was saying yes to - not only doing a “real†5k, but running with him present (a BFD). 

 

I’d like to find more 5ks and/or muddy things that don’t cost an arm and a leg to attend this summer - maybe something in August? 

 

tumblr_n59dvcZ1dv1s46h7vo1_500.jpg

 

 

Diet Side Goal

 

My diet is pretty damn good when I’m actually doing what I’m supposed to be doing metrics-wise. Since this challenge incorporates a vacation (and a vacation to the land of biscuits & gravy, no less), I need to be mindful while on vacation to not eat allthecarbs. I need to mitigate where possible (i.e. limit my biscuit intake severely - the hubbs has been warned that my typical NC vacation cranky morning ‘get me Bojangles!’ grump can be indulged once - and only if I’ve been well-behaved. And I need to exercise self-restraint other places (like not eating a crapton of fried pimento cheese + hush puppies when we hit our favorite BBQ place and not eating things that I know will make me feel like more shit than going on vacation already does - like a bunch of pizza with cow cheese). 

 

I’m not expecting that I’ll be perfect here, I’m just shooting for mitigation and moderation. And for chrissakes, I need vegetables while on vacation or my GI system is not going to be happy. Smoothies would be ideal, but barring that - some damn vegetables.

New Overarching Goal

tl;dr: figure out what kind of big muddy thing I want to do next and commit to it. In the meantime, do little 5ks & such.

 

 

 

Goal 1: Fitness

tl;dr: Follow HasFit’s  30 Days to Six Pack Abs program + incorporate Spartan Warrior WODs and other stuffs to supplement.

 

Week 1: On a great track and doing well. 

 

Week 2: I did about what was expected here. No gains, but I moved where I could and where it wasn’t 999999999 degrees with 10000000 percent humidity. 

 

Week 3: I did good this week. A. I hit my workouts (or did a good replacement), worked through niggling injuries (obliques and ankle), and did fairly okay at my 5k. Score. 

 

Week 4: This week was great. Walking FTW!

 

Week 5: I did good here per mostly usual. A. I had to take a step back from bear crawls because I managed to jack my wrist up (which is *still* not 100% btw), but I worked around it. 

 

Week 6: I did good this week, especially since it was a transition week and I was dealing with wrist drama. A

 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics 

tl;dr: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat, around 1500 calories, 60+ ounces of water, 10,000+ steps on weekends. Track using My Fitness Pal, FitBit Aria & FitBit Flex.

 

Week 1: On a great track and doing well.

 

Week 2: I mitigated a bit where I could. For a normal week, my metrics were horrible - for a travel week, they weren’t the best and weren’t the worst. I brought snacks and ate them instead of less wise choices; I ate smaller portions of things that weren’t on plan; and I had a good time. And I drank a fair amount. Totally not complaining about the drinking. 

 

Week 3: My weekly metrics were good, but I fell apart a bit on the weekend with too little protein (thanks to hotdogs and sausages) and too many carbs (thanks to fries & sweet potato chips). And I paid for it with a 2 pound+ weight gain over the weekend. Not where I need to be. B.

 

Week 4: My weekly metrics were good, and my weekend was a bit relaxed. I still did pretty well. A-

 

Week 5: Not a bad week overall. I wasn't perfect, but I didn't go crazy. A. 

 

Week 6: C. I did sooo good this week until Sunday's debacle. And I'm still full from last night. As I'm typing this. On Monday morning. Slept like crap because of my pregnant looking belly (seriously. I took pictures, it was that impressive.) and I've gained 3 lbs. since yesterday. 

 

 

Goal 3: ???

tl;dr: I don’t really have one but I’d like to get some little extras done, be they craft things or consolidation things, or whathaveyou. 

 

Week 1: I pinned things ... 

 

Week 2: I did nothing that wasn’t travel related this week. 

 

Week 3: Meh. I haven't done more here than gather underpants. 

 

Week 4: Underpants!  

 

Week 5: No grade here

 

Week 6: Still nothing accomplished.

 

 

Life Side Goal

tl:dr: Do the cyclones 5k in June, zombie 5k in July, and find something for August. 

 

Week 1: Haven't found anything yet, but I've been looking. 

 

Week 2: Nothing to see here yet - moving along. 

 

Week 3: Completed my first "real" 5k. 

 

Week 4: Completed my first "real" 5k last week and signed up for something in August.

 

Week 5: No grade here

 

Week 6: It looks like I'll be doing a 5k in my neighborhood in August. 

 

 

Diet Side Goal

tl;dr: Mindfulness during my vacation. Mitigation, not perfection. 

 

Week 1: N/A

 

Week 2: I was definitely mindful. Spent a lot of time trying to mitigate my food choices - and a lot of time doing what I wanted to do and enjoying myself. I certainly wasn’t perfect, but I didn’t eat too crazy shit and I paid for the “bad†stuff when I had it. I’m not too broken up about having a good time, and although my digestion feels crazy since I’m back, I’m attributing that mostly to the lack of smoothies last week (since the off-ness was pretty much immediate). I have a hard time counting less than great as success but at least it wasn’t a complete and biscuit-filled failure. Sidebar: I still want my damn biscuit. 

 

For the record, I gained a whopping 0.7 of a pound while I was gone so I must have been doing something right. Especially when, on balance, I’ve been known to gain 1-3 lbs. in a single weekend. I’d say that leans toward the success category. 

 

Week 3: This goal is complete.

 

Week 4: This goal is complete. 

 

Week 5: Still complete

 

Week 6: Still complete.

Bahahah! This whole theme is amazing . <3<3<3!

 

And I think you should come up an visit me, and do Mud Hero in August. It's perfect! lol

 

I'm starting to think that there's something about summer coming up that makes people not give a damn about things. Maybe some leftover emotions from the summer holidays of our youth :) Sigh, nevertheless, I don't really want to spend the lead-up to Christmas trying to lose the summer weight, amiright? Back on track it is.

Week 1 Day 2 Update

 

 

Goal 1: Fitness

tl;dr: Follow HasFit’s  30 Days to Six Pack Abs program + incorporate Spartan Warrior WODs and other stuffs to supplement. 

 

I tried to kill myself today (but in a good way). I completed the Long Run + Strength Conditioning Spartan WOD - Jog 15 minutes warmup, 25 bodyweight lunges per leg, 10 burpees, 1 minute plank, 25 bodyweight squats, 25 crunches, a second 15 minute jog --- and then I came back in and did my Shredding 8 Minute Abs video.   Spreadsheet

 

Not gonna lie, I almost gave up after the exercises in the park, during the second set of jogging, and before the abs workout - I even came back to it after making most of dinner. Go, me. My running stats were abysmal - 14:30 pace and just over a mile each time (averaging jogging 1 - 1.5 sides of the park and then walking the rest of a side - and no running up the killer park hills).  

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics 

tl;dr: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat, around 1500 calories, 60+ ounces of water, 10,000+ steps on weekends. Track using My Fitness Pal, FitBit Aria & FitBit Flex.

 

Breakfast: Coffee with coconut milk + my DH's green smoothie with added hemp protein powder

Lunch: Salad with CSA greens (mixed lettuces + arugula), cucumber, young garlic, cucumber, chicken breast and an Asian-ish dressing

Dinner: "Meatball sub" - meatballs with hard cheeses in the mix + tomato sauce + mozzarella + fresh basil with braised rapini

After Dinner Snack: A peach

@Fonzico: Ya know, I really didn't want the bread with this one. Mostly because I've decided that I don't want bread unless I can guaran-damn-tee it's the most amazeballs bread ever, and the hoagie roll my hubbs brought home for his sandwich only looked so-so. 

 

@BC: It's all good. I can make sure to repeat the bare bones of the goals with my daily wrapups for transparency - which actually might be a good idea, since I tend to forget y'all's specific goals by the end of the six weeks, too. :)

Bare bones, Skeletor... <gigglefits>  Actually, I'd appreciate that, at least a summary of what you're accomplishing for the week.  That would help with brain meltage.

Pssst, I got a random question for you, DF.... I seem to remember you saying you figured out how to change your thread title once upon a time.  I'm trying to get a thread going, but since I don't have a theme, I wanna be able to change the title later, how do I do this (since I can't figure out it)?

I don't think that was me, BC, and if it was, chuck that little nugget of information onto the pile of things my brain has let go of.

Darn... hmm... well if I figure it out, I'll let you know, so we can both forget later.

Well now that's an update I can follow!  I also read the whole thing, not just the TL;DR parts, but I appreciate them a lot, keeps silly things in context in my ADHD brain.  Sorry about the low calories for the day, but I know you'll adjust that soon enough, you're always good about tweaking things properly.

Sweet! 

 

And I don't know what happened with yesterday - I certainly didn't *mean* to be that low in calories, and I wasn't running around hangry all day -- I did go to bed hungry, but that's just because my body only decided it was hungry at 9:00 and that's about an hour after my food cutoff point for the day. 

 

I'm hoping today will be better, but lunch is going to be on the tricky side. There was a metric ton of drama with picking my CSA box up last night (thought they were mislabeled, ended up taking another person with the same last name's box, figured out that it was a "better" box than what I get and eventually got the box to the rightful owner, only to find out that something went wonky with my signup and I'm not on the list -- but my check went through with no problem -- hoping this is straightened up before next week ... where I won't be in town to pick up my veggies). DRAMA. Drama that's throwing my blog posting schedule off and my veggie life out of damn whack.

@Fonzico: Thanks for that. I wasn't expecting a hilarious .gif when I clicked the email link and I couldn't swallow the swig of water I took, lest it come shooting out my nose :) 

 

The veggie people are actually doing the right thing and are delivering my share tomorrow morning to my building. Can't complain there (though that means more waste because of vacation, but whatever). 

 

@kwebs: ME EITHER
