Yes! That guy is awesome! 

 

Actually, Hiriro, it's funny you should mention that - at the zombie race this weekend, I was ogling some lady's bat tee - complete with cape. :)

Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do


 


Overarching Goal: Building A Better Bat


 tl;dr version: continue on the 'changing my body for the better' track by building muscle and losing fat. 


 


 


Goal 1: Fitness - aka be capable enough to escape the Joker whenever


4-5 days per week; Spartan WODs + fitness-style yoga + be flexible when needed + pull-ups & handstand work if possible. 


 


Yesterday's light day seemed to work well, so I duped it - logged a 30-minute walk in the (all hills) park, and worked on handstands. I'm not sure how long I held today's handstand, but my landing on the wall was nice and soft. 


 


 


Goal 2: Metrics - aka Sciiiience! Like Poison Ivy? (go with it)


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. 


 


Breakfast: Yay! Smoothie! DH's green smoothie + hemp protein & coffee with coconut milk


Lunch: Leftover beef bol gogi + leftover zucchini soup


Dinner: Almond crusted chicken tenders + cucumber basil gazpacho


Snacks: A tomato, 1 ounce of plain almonds, kombucha


 


Calories: 1,519


Carbs: 93


Fat: 71


Protein: 107


Sugar: 37


 


Calories were a bit high, but not too bad. Score! 


 


 


Weight: 118.8 lbs. 


Calories In vs. Out: 1519 In vs 1552 Out


Sleep: 8 hours & 19 minutes - awake 0x, restless 6x


Very Active Minutes: 14 / Distance: 3.4 miles / Steps: 8,340 


Water: 60+ ounces


 


 


Goal 3: Socials - Like With Superfriends & Shit


Forcing myself to be social: I'm aiming for once a week out of the house (aside from weekends) doing something that is either directly social (like attending a meetup, game night, book club, actually going out with a friend, etc.) or on my way to social (I'm counting going to the doctor as a social activity because my doctor is through Freelancers Union and they have 99999 networking and social events).  


 


Nothing done here. I *do* have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, and I looked into flights for my upcoming trip to see a friend IRL (it's not until October, though).


 


 


Life Side Goal - Get My Wardrobe Dialed-in Like Harley Quinn


Wardrobe restructure. I've been really into building a minimalist wardrobe lately and think I might be ready to make the jump. Sites like this and Pinterest are fueling this current obsession. My need to purge crap from my house is also driving this desire. 


 


I *want* to jump into this process willy-nilly and get with the purging. But ... I'm deciding to take a more measured course instead. At least for now. Completed Day 2 of the Upgrade Your Wardrobe In 30 Minutes A Day 2-week program by collecting images of outfits I like on Pinterest. 


 


 


Diet Side Goal - NaNa NaNa NaNa NaNa


I'm pretty dialed in here. Depending upon what the doctor says, I may do something additional with nutrition.

@jofalltrades: I really like the site and the articles. I don't know if I'm patient enough to follow through with this two-week business, but I think it's at least helping me be mindful of what I actually gravitate toward - apparently, it's all jeans + tee + blazer all the time over here, with some 50s inspired dresses & anything fit & flare for good measure. I like the concept of building a "uniform" to wear (and now that I think about it, I've had one of those off and on since high school). And I don't know if I'm *quite* ready to go down to 30 wardrobe pieces (helloooo, printed tees!), but this will certainly help me whittle things down toward that direction.

My big girl bandaid from Wednesday's bloodwork - I also got a glitter bandaid & Green Arrow for the road. 

 

 

Overarching Goal: Building A Better Bat

 tl;dr version: continue on the 'changing my body for the better' track by building muscle and losing fat. 

 

 

Goal 1: Fitness - aka be capable enough to escape the Joker whenever

4-5 days per week; Spartan WODs + fitness-style yoga + be flexible when needed + pull-ups & handstand work if possible. 

 

I did pull-up/chin-up work -- 5 assisted chin-ups with band + 2 1/2-ish assisted pull-ups with band. Just enough to make my already tense back muscles bark. And I walked to the doc's office, but that was only 10 minutes each way. 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics - aka Sciiiience! Like Poison Ivy? (go with it)

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. 

 

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie + hemp protein & coffee with coconut milk

Lunch: Leftover almond crusted chicken with a zucchini sauteed in ghee

Dinner: Raw cucumber salad with avocado, egg & tuna 

Snacks: A tomato, 1 ounce of plain mixed nuts, another helping of dinner

 

Calories: 1,326

Carbs: 65

Fat: 81

Protein: 89

Sugar: 32

 

Metrics were on point. 

 

 

Weight: 118.2 lbs. 

Calories In vs. Out: 1326 In vs 1645 Out

Sleep: 7 hours & 53 minutes - awake 0x, restless 5x

Very Active Minutes: 28 / Distance: 2.8 miles / Steps: 6,926 

Water: I don't think I hit my metric today

 

 

Goal 3: Socials - Like With Superfriends & Shit

Forcing myself to be social: I'm aiming for once a week out of the house (aside from weekends) doing something that is either directly social (like attending a meetup, game night, book club, actually going out with a friend, etc.) or on my way to social (I'm counting going to the doctor as a social activity because my doctor is through Freelancers Union and they have 99999 networking and social events).  

 

I went to my doctor visit. My doctor practice is more of a wellness practice - everyone gets a health coach + a general physician. I met the doc and coach, reviewed my current lifestyle and set an action plan for health (which involves doing what I'm doing, and adding acupuncture back in + visiting Get Your Shit Together to get big life stuff straightened out (funny ... I've been procrastinating on that one for a slam year) + finishing my baseline checks). The doc thought my diet was good (though he's checking cholesterol just to make sure), he thought my activity level was good - I told him about you guys, and he was intrigued. My heart rate, body fat percentage, oxygenated blood percentage, and blood pressure are all great. 

 

And they had Batman bandaids. 

 

For next week, the plan is to hit up acupuncture on Wednesday and if I'm feeling froggy, yoga on Thursday. 

 

 

Life Side Goal - Get My Wardrobe Dialed-in Like Harley Quinn

Wardrobe restructure. I've been really into building a minimalist wardrobe lately and think I might be ready to make the jump. Sites like this and Pinterest are fueling this current obsession. My need to purge crap from my house is also driving this desire. 

 

I *want* to jump into this process willy-nilly and get with the purging. But ... I'm deciding to take a more measured course instead. At least for now. Sort of. I ended up having done/doing a bunch of days in a row. 

 

Wednesday's assignment - discarded elements I didn't still love from my Pinterest styleboard, picked recurring elements (color, proportion, etc.) and added to my style guide.

 

Thursday assignment - this has also already been done. In picking my Pinterest mood board items, I found examples of a few full outfits that represent my style concept. Apparently I'm obsessed with the tee/tank + blazer/cardigan + jeans + heels/boots outfit and that's pretty much what hit my styleguide board. I added these elements onto my style guide sheet.

 

Friday assignment - lifestyle. I work out of the house, so I don't need many "business" outfits in any given week - 1 "getting clients/going on job interviews" dress + 1 matching suit will suffice for that purpose. I need 2 outfits I can walk miles in for weekends + 1 nicer Friday night/date night outfit + a pajamay outfit + taking the dogs out elements (usually the jeans that are at the foot of my bed + whatever pajama top I'm currently wearing) + 2 workout outfits. My diagram looks like this:

 

http://1drv.ms/1s48cxA

 

Saturday's assignment - when I created my style guide, I was already thinking about things like fit and proportions. I'm pretty dialed-in to what fits work for me and what proportions I need to dress a wide-hipped, small-busted, petite frame. 

 

 

Diet Side Goal - NaNa NaNa NaNa NaNa

I'm pretty dialed in here. Depending upon what the doctor says, I may do something additional with nutrition. 

 

The doc didn't see any glaring holes in my nutrition, but will know more when the blood panels come back.

I can't imagine it won't be - it was fine in 2011 (the last time I saw a doctor) and I'm eating much healthier now (back then, it was grains with most meals + vegetarian 2-4 times a week). He's more curious than worried - some people do really well eating paleo or mostly paleo; some have cholesterol that goes whacky. So, we shall see.

Dude you are so dialed in it's crazy! Crazy impressive. Arguably you're doing everything right, especially since you seem to be on point with the doc.

 

Re: be more social goal. Have you looked into meetup.com? It's basically like high school clubs... but online... and with grown up people! I stumbled upon it when I wanted to start soccer again after college. I think the best thing part is that everybody in the group in there for the same reason, so you already have a talking point, and with things like pick up soccer you can just go, not talk to a ton of people and then bounce when the game is over. Over time I've made a few good friends this way and found my way onto bigger and better teams. And they have everything. I highly recommend it. It's been my # 1 tool for making friends post-college.

@AwkwardActive: Lols. I had a feeling I was doing ok, but it's good to hear it from the doc anyways. Though, he *did* tell me I shrank an inch and a quarter, so there's that. 

 

Yeah, I need to be more active with Meetup.com. I'm a member of a bunch of groups, and have actually made a social effort through them when I lived in a smaller city - I'll be forcing myself to actually go to one of the meetups sometime this challenge - 1,500-person groups be damned.

Goal 1: Fitness - aka be capable enough to escape the Joker whenever

4-5 days per week; Spartan WODs + fitness-style yoga + be flexible when needed + pull-ups & handstand work if possible. 

 

Still with the no good workout. Took the dachshund to the hills park with me tonight and that little bastard walked me way harder than I wanted and did way more hill runs/stair runs than I wanted. I let him lead and he was in panic/excitement mode. We were pooped when we got back and I forgot to do any arm work. And oh yes, hello, ab pain - I'd forgotten about you until my dog ran me ragged. 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics - aka Sciiiience! Like Poison Ivy? (go with it)

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.

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie + hemp protein & coffee with coconut milk

Lunch: BAS with romaine, a peach, a tomato, pulled pork, lime juice, hot sauce & olive oil

Dinner: 8 ounce grass fed beef burger patty with a side of baked zucchini fries - I'm tweaking the recipe next time for the blog, but what I made was based on this recipe. They were too salty with the spice blend I used, but still freaking delicious and I'm totally making them again.

Water: I'm pretty sure I came close to hitting my metric, though I forgot to track

 

 

Goal 3: Socials - Like With Superfriends & Shit

Forcing myself to be social: I'm aiming for once a week out of the house (aside from weekends) doing something that is either directly social (like attending a meetup, game night, book club, actually going out with a friend, etc.) or on my way to social (I'm counting going to the doctor as a social activity because my doctor is through Freelancers Union and they have 99999 networking and social events).  

 

Nothing today, though I did say hi to another dachshund owner in the park and kept 1 earbud out so I could be available for socialization. 

 

For next week, the plan is still to hit up acupuncture on Wednesday and if I'm feeling froggy, yoga on Thursday. 

 

 

Life Side Goal - Get My Wardrobe Dialed-in Like Harley Quinn

Wardrobe restructure. I've been really into building a minimalist wardrobe lately and think I might be ready to make the jump. Sites like this and Pinterest are fueling this current obsession. My need to purge crap from my house is also driving this desire. 

 

I *want* to jump into this process willy-nilly and get with the purging. But ... I'm deciding to take a more measured course instead. At least for now. Sort of. I ended up having done/doing a bunch of days in a row. 

 

Sunday's assignment - Developing a color palette. I scoured my Pins, Pinterest and the Internet and came up with a set of colors I am drawn to - seen here. I probably didn't pick as many examples as I was supposed to, but was having trouble finding anything I was in love with in the timeframe I gave myself. 

 

From the board, we were supposed to pick the top 10 colors we are drawn to:

 

3yieHXD.jpg

And figure out how these would work in a wardrobe. 

 

Main colors (3-4)

 

Medium grey

Dark grey

Black

Dark blues

 

Main wardrobe colors.

 

Neutrals (1-3)

 

Taupes

White

Silvery grey

 

Support and balance other colors.

 

Accents (2-5)

 

Oranges

Purpely dusky

Greeny

Lighter blues

Steel blue

 

Accent colors (shirts and pops of color).

 

 

 

Diet Side Goal - NaNa NaNa NaNa NaNa

I'm pretty dialed in here. Depending upon what the doctor says, I may do something additional with nutrition. 

 

Got my blood panel back, and I'm golden. Cholesterol, HDL & sugar are all great - so I'm sticking with what I'm doing!

Well, partial points for letting your dog boss you into what sounds like a half decent cardio session! And double points for talking to strangers :P

 

I will have to try that zucchini fry recipe! I got a couple more in my box this week. Maybe I will find another option than zoodles that will get my hubs to eat them.

Lol. He's quite the little taskmaster. I don't know if my hip tendon is thanking him for it, but I at least felt like I worked a little more than not at all, so there's that. I'm freaking tired of resting my hip. 

 

With the fry recipe: I'm tweaking the seasonings (mine turned out too salty), and am also thinking of doing away with the egg (there was a lot of batter on the fries) and using the paper bag method to toss instead of dredging - I also ended up using more batter than called for because of gloppiness. The hubbs ate them, fwiw. Ooh. And I'll be cutting mine thick - the thinner fries had too high of a batter-to-veggie ratio for me (but I hate batter in all forms and always have). 

 

He has also recently eaten a pureed zucchini soup and some of the zucchini green salsa I made.

I would imagine so. I only do ghee & salt on my sweet potato fries, so I'm not 100% sure, but logically it stands to reason that it would work. 

 

I liked the little nuttiness from the almond flour, but will try half the batch with arrowroot or tapioca starch next time for comparison.

I wouldn't worry about the 1500 person meetup groups too much. You're probably just over-thinking yourself into inaction. I live in a large city as well... arguably the 2nd largest city in the US, and from my experience the number of members who sign up for the group is about 20x as big as the number who actually show up. For example, the soccer group I started with has like 300+ members but often only 10ish people show up. Don't freak yourself out about it before you've given it a chance :)

Wow, I take a few days out to find you and you're changing the universe (okay, just your wardrobe), fleeing zombies, and just generally looking at a great challenge week 1.  I like the 30-minute a day plan for your wardrobe makeover.  I'm still waiting for the premier episode of DarkFoxx and the Fonz.
