ChristArtist prepares for CampNF


Recommended Posts

I am heading to Camp! NerdFitness!

 

Camping_5f0c6c_4614816.jpg

 

So, the wheels on the bus go round and round...preparing me to be fit enough to participate at Camp NF!

 

I have one serious issue that confronts me(only one?)

artificial cervical disc replacement surgery on September 10th.

The prognosis is that I will be able to participate, just not lift heavy things(oh, so sorry WildRoss and company!) or do crazy things like fly through the air (no zip line for me!)

But any surgery result is better off with a healthy person going into it.

 

The wheels are a set of various activities that I have collected that work with my various disabilities - For some of the break down, you can check out my notes in preparation for this challenge.

I will create a set of cards and choose from them each day...and at the end of the week, I will have my totals.

 

1) Fitness Roulette Wheel - 6/7  20 min  (2 Strength /2 Stamina/ 2 Dex)

 

up to 2 STRENGTH - DO SOMETHING strong 3/7 DAYS
up to 2 STAMINA - DO SOMETHING for 10 min  6/7 DAYS 
up to 2 DEXTERITY - DO SOMETHING flexible - 6/7 week - 1 each day
That is 15 pts per week and 90pts per challenge 
81-90pts= A, 72-80pts = B, 63-71pts = C

 

2) Reading/Encouraging Wheel - 6/7  20 min (2 Wisdom 2Charisma )

Reading Wheel: Wisdom

one point for each item READ. one per week goal is 6
Breakdown would be 6pts =A, 5 pts = B, 4pts = C

 

Community Wheel: 

Adventurers / Level 1s(Red Pill) / RPG

one point per day, goal is 6
Breakdown would be 6pts =A, 5 pts = B, 4pts = C

 

3) Food- 6/7 (a cheat meal on day 7 maybe?) (+3 Constitution)

log on MFP

Diet - Paleo 6/7 days
new Recipes - 1 each week
7pts/ week 42/ challenge
38-42=A, 33-37=B, 28-31=C

 

MAIN QUESTS:

Spiritual - reading my Bible

Life Goal - A painting

Weight Loss and increased functional strength.

 

The one thing I'm not sure I want to see is this:

I'm pretty certain I have a wedding that I'm stuck going to the weekend of Camp NF, otherwise I'd plan to head off to it.

T minus 3 days...

because of all day testing after two days of cardio work up...I allowed myself to not eat according to plan.

Wendy's. ..pretzel burger... what is in that cheese sauce? And yes. ..i ate the French fries! And had trouble staying awake for the second half of the psych testing (baseline for Alzheimer's).

Then, for some reason unknown and unclear to me, I decided to give myself a pint of ice cream.

I was so sick of it, I put it down. I figured it was almost gone. .. because I had gotten to the point of "I've gone this far, might as well finish it". When I got up to throw away the rest. ..i had only eaten half before my stomach said "this is sickening".

Today, . I'm tired from the tests. .but I also know that my "down" mood is from the pretzel bun, "cheese" sauce and cheese, and ice cream....grains, dairy, sugar.

Today is a new day!

I had the pretzel bun from Wendy's back when they did their first run of them...I wasn't overly impressed by it personally. I did debate stopping by and grabbing it, but then I asked myself "why?" It was mostly me trying to be lazy, or get the extra calories. Something like that. I can say it generally gets easier to deal without those foods as time goes by, the cravings for them tend to disappear. The issue for me now lies in the fact that it's generally much much easier to get food that's made with that stuff quickly than it is to stick to my eating habits, at least when I don't have anything planned...or need to be quick.

Ya know...I was stuck with a time frame between testings, and I just grabbed that.

This time, it wasn't even the excuse of a craving...it's the 'much easier' aspect...and the time aspect.

I just didn't want a salad.

I just didn't want to do some thinking on how to get something else that I might like....

and Applebees was too far away.

 

I'm paying for it today...but, as time goes by..it's true...it gets easier...and more and more I want what makes me feel GOOD!  physically, not the old emotionally!  Because then, the emotions ride the physical high!

 

But, it was only one day...

Just make the next day better.  Can't change the past! 

 

I wish I could be going to camp NF, but it's just not going to work out this year.  *sigh*  You have a lot of people who want to live vicariously through you, so we expect a lot of pics from camp!

If it helps before I cut out potatoes I was hitting Wendy's up fairly often, I just got a burger without the cheese and the bun...kinda sad little meat squares, and you really realize the quality of what you're eating...but it beats having those giant rolls of carbs with it. 80D

Since I will not be doing much of the activities because of the neck surgery - I will be taking lots of photos!

I probably just need to post a CampNF thread after this 6 weeks is over!

I usually volunteer to be the photographer .... so that I'm not in the picture!!!  :playful:

 

Seriously, it sounds like there will be a WIDE range of options at camp ..... too many to choose from.  Just hope you're feeling well!

I am here for you sister. I will pray for success for your surgery, and I am suitably envious of your attending Camp NF.
