Jonesy's 2014.4 : Time to Conquer

Main Quest - Defeat my Laziness Boss

Time to throw a wrench in my daily routine. The Laziness Boss has been running my life for the last year and I'm sick of it. This challenge I will dedicate my time to battling it out and defeating my laziness boss one step at a time. How will I defeat this boss you ask?

Mission 1 - Stay off the couch!!!

This is a big one for me. I sit all day at work, so why should I just plop down on the couch when I get home? I can't possible be that tired. For this mission, everyday I work, I will come home and do something active for 30 mins. That can be anything from doing a workout, taking the dog on a walk, doing laundry, cleaning or straightening up.

Track : M-F (5 days)

Grading :

24 - 30 : A

18 - 23 : B

12 - 17 : C

6 - 11 : D

0 - 5 : F

(A - 5 STA : B - 3 STA : C none)

Mission 2 - Weekend Action Plan

If I don't have anything planned for the weekend, something that is going to get me out of the house, I can stay in my PJs all day and do nothing productive. I might read a book, play a video game or watch Netflix but nothing productive gets done without a plan to get out of the house. This is a big issue when it comes to grocery shopping. If I'm lazy and push going to the grocery store until Monday, I usually push it to Tuesday and so forth because I'm too "tired" after work. This leads me to getting fast food or take out which is not helping. So every weekend I need to have a plan of action.

Track : Sat & Sun (2 days)

Grading :

10 - 12 : A

7 - 9 : B

6 : C

3 - 5 : D

0 - 2 : F

(A - 5 WIS : B - 3 WIS : C none)

Mission 3 - Never miss a Monday

What a better way to start off the week then by getting a workout in on Monday? I will either go for a walk, do a yoga video, a Tai Chi video, a body weight workout at home or go to the gym. Added workout days after Monday are a bonus and to be encouraged.

Track : M (1 day)

Grading :

6 : A

5 : B

4 : C

3 : D

2 : F

(A - 3 STA & 2 STR : B - 2 STA & 1 STR : C none)

Weight : 307

Looks good Jonesy.  I like he idea of not coming home and just sitting down on the couch.

 

Thank you Tateman! I tried it out last week and my place was a lot more organized and I felt better after doing it. 

 

Omg I totally understand. Especially the staying in my pjs all weekend with no plans! I have to force myself to get out. I will be dropping by to say hi!

 

PJs on the weekends are the worst! I mean it feels wonderful to be comfy all weekend and stay home and be a couch potato but I've noticed that I feel like crud on Mondays. A friend on mine suggested that I get dressed like I'm going some where, even if I'm not going.  One less excuse to use. :)

 

I love your goals Jonesy, good luck with everything!

 

Thank you! I feel pumped and really want to throw a wrench in my current routine. 

 

Great plan. I really think breaking the routine will make a big difference. Definitely doable.

 

Thank you! I've been stuck in this rut for a long time and need to make some changes.

So today felt like a bust. I woke up early and got to the gym at 5:20am. Pulled up to the gym and all the lights were off and the phone was not connected. Thought my gym had closed and was super pissed. I only had enough time for a morning workout so I just went home. I called the gym again at 6am, thinking that maybe they had new hours. Turns out the mall janitor turned off their power but they were still open. Uugh today started off not so well.

Haha yeah. Next time I'm getting my butt in the gym. I didn't have much time for working out tonight but I did get in some. 8 incline push ups, 20 calf raises, 20's plank and 5 double leg lift.

Tonight I got home and spent 30 mins cleaning the kitchen counters, washing dishes, loading and starting the dishwasher, separating bridal shower left over to return and to keep, cleaned the floor where the dog decided to pee and made lunches for the week. Boo start to the day but good end! Now off to bed early to see if I can get to the gym early tomorrow!

Got in and did 15 mins on the elliptical and did 5 mins of stretching. Shin splits came out in full force this morning. I had originally planned on 30 mins but had to stop. Guess it's time to start slow!

To help with shin splits, drink tons of water (on days I don't like water I eat a peppermint while I drink) and eat a banana or other potassium rich food! Hope they get better!

Boo shin splits!  That is great you went back and got some stuff done though :)  Keep it up!

 

Thank you! Yeah I've had shin splint problems off and on pretty much my whole life, I just need to take is slow. 

 

Starting is good. Even starting slow.

 

I need to do a better job of remembering this. My problem is that 15 mins seems very weaksauce to me and I feel like time is wasted if it takes me more time to drive to my gym than it does for an actual workout. I think next time I will get there a little earlier and do some body weight workouts to help. :)

I need to look into this. Banana's make me gag so I need to find another potassium rich food. Water is tough on some days because sometimes I just don't want to drink anything. Thank you for the advice! I always forgetting about the potassium. 

 

Nice one Jonesy!

 

Thank you! 

Yesterday I managed to get in my morning workout and took a 10 min walk at lunch. When I got home I stayed up and running around for 30 mins! I didn't get as much done as I thought I would but that was because I spend 15 mins looking for an item I'm giving to a friend to help with her tendinitis.

 

30 mins : Unloaded and put away clean dishes from the dishwasher, cleaned off coffee table, took the dog out side and played a little and searched for a hot/cold bag for a friend.

 

Today I will be going to bed once I get home. I'm going to a book signing for one of my favorite authors in Seattle, so I'm going to be home late. No time for sitting on the couch anyways. :)

Yay Jonesy! Have fun at the book signing! Who is the author if I may ask?

 

Ilona Andrews. It's a husband and wife team who write Urban Fantasy/Paranormal with some romance. Since I've started reading their books (2009) I've never seen them come to Seattle. I'm super excited!

It was pretty cool Tateman! 

So Thursday, I cleaned the entry way after work and did 8 incline push ups then I got 70% of the way done with a book I started yesterday. I also made a tentative plan for the weekend. I'm thinking I'm going to need to plan at least 1 trip outside the house to make sure I'm not a complete lazy ass the whole weekend!
 

Tentative Weekend Plan
Friday
30 min - Give dog a bath (This reallllly needs to be done. She's starting to stink.)
Load of laundry
Finish book I started yesterday

Saturday
Gym
Get gas
Return craft items
Dinner & Movie @ friends

Sunday
Meal Plan
Grocery shop
Budget for week

Make lunches for week
