Amazing job.  You totally rocked it.  Keep up the awesome work!

 

Thank you :)

 

Nice work Lish! While eating the same thing every week (or day) may feel repetitive, it seems to work for you, and that's an awesome thing.

 

Yeah it works for me - I used to eat a cheese and gherkin sandwich every day when I was in primary school :P

 

Great work last week, and it looks like a pretty solid plan for week 3!

 

Thanks!

 

I'm going to to add blueberries to my protein shakes this week. When I have time to do smoothies at home, I love adding all sorts of fruit and berries, but lately I've just been putting protein powder and unsweetened coconut milk into my blender shake bottle at the office. I do have a small actual blender at work, though, so I think it's time for Lish-style morning protein drinks!

 

Yes I love my blueberry smoothie :)

 

It's amazing to see how you follow through with your challenge. Hope you are ok and the nausea was nothing serious.

 

I'm feeling well today thank you - I just hope the good feeling continues.

Basically my daily goal is to get under 1500 calories, and to always get over 100g of protein per day. I'm sticking with the same meals and format - because I am lazy and it appears to be working for me. One day I'll try something different - I've been eating the same meals (pretty much) for 7 weeks now  :wacko: 

 

Ehh it only matters if you like what you're eating ;), no one else's opinion matters :D. Eating the same thing can get very boring tho which is why I've been changing up how I prep my protein. I'll keep sticking to veggies I know that don't bug me and occasionally quinoa or rice.

Yep - I agree. I sometimes swap a few things around - but it generally stays the same - just makes shopping and prepping so much easier - which means less stress - which means I don't lose my mind.

I tend to eat the same thing several days in a row as it's easier to cook big batches and reheat things rather than make something from fresh every day.  I agree with Amdhiel, if it's tasty then there's no problem!

YAY FOR BATCH COOKING!

I mean, as long as you're getting all the nutrients you need - and you're happy for repetition - go for it! :) I have the same smoothie every morning. It's just easier than sorting out what ingredients you need for lots of dishes. I have 2 meal options for the week: soup and roast veggies+soy-sage. I have 2 planned meals that I'm eating out, so that will add variety. But batch cooking is the BEST - it save  money and time, and who doesn't love that?

 

So happy to see you besting through week 2! Looks like your going to own week 3! You got it!

Well breakfast, snacks and lunch are all delish - dinner is a bit so and so, but by that stage of the day I don't really care anymore :P

Thank you :) - I'm glad I'm not the only repetitive one. 

 

Hey If I have to eat when I don't want to, I will damn well eat what I want. Your doing great.

 

Thanking you!

Skull crushing imminent!


-------Day 15 Report--------


 


Quest 1: Failing to plan, means planning to fail


Week two begins with a bang! Meals were good - even though I went to the cinemas and wanted to eat lollies and chocolate - I stuck with my damn 22 almonds. I was actually thinking that I was going to have a queasy moment again today, but then I realised that I was actually just extremely hungry - so wolfed down my salad at lunch. Also had a mega amount of chicken at dinner tonight so my protein levels are pretty mega. Oh yeah and strength workout that was planned for was totally achieved. Bam.


 


Calories: 1492  Carbs: 96  Fat: 45  Protein: 170


 


QUEST 2: Fit and strong for the journey ahead 


Strength workout today - done in the middle of the day when motivation was starting to dip, but I got out there and did it anyway. Pity I had about 100 mozzies that were trying to eat me alive while I was out there. Bastards! Oh well, at least it meant that I powered through it because I would kinda like to keep my blood for myself.


 


Oh and a bonus today - my friend returned my adjustable dumbbells so weights can increase again :).


 


4 sets of each:


  • DB squats (12 x 6kg) --> Upping weights
  • DB bench press (12 x 6kg) --> Upping weights
  • BB deadlifts (12 x 21kg) --> Upping weights
  • Bent over BB row (12 x 16kg) 
  • DB bicep curls (12 x 6kg)
  • Skull crushers (12 x 6kg) --> Upping weights
  • Russian twists (12 x 2.5kg) 
  • Bicycle crunches (14) --> Upping reps

 


QUEST 3: Battle ready


Not today.


 


LIFE QUEST: Move towards the light 


I can see the light!! Seriously today was jam packed!


  • Took the girls to the cinemas to see Strawberry Shortcake (god help me) - they sat and enjoyed their m&m's and I ate almonds
  • Went for a quick walk around the shops, purchased new colouring in books and mega sticker book
  • Home for sticker madness - then all of sudden queasy! Then I remembered that it was lunch time, and I was in fact hungry - salad solved it
  • Outside for strength workout - much sweat, much blood (mozzies) - no tears
  • Come inside to cool down - hear a massive bang! Go outside to see that some guy has just totally swiped the side of a parked car off and then gone flying into my rubbish bins. The whole street came out to see what was going on - the guy was injured (his leg I think), his car was buggered, the other car was pretty screwed and one of my bins was destroyed. I was just so thankful that no one was seriously injured - and that my kids were nowhere near it when it happened. The guy could of killed someone - it was a bit scary.
  • After all the excitement disappeared we walked down to the park for a play
  • Back home for dinner, more colouring in, and also some book writing and drawing
  • Then the usual tidy up, bath, stories and bed routine
  • Now NF
  • Later - finish those damn halloween decorations :D

Car crashes suck, I'm glad your kids weren't close by when it happened. I had something like that happen when I was a kid but they totalled on of my parents' cars and my brother and I were nearby when it happend. No damage to us tho :).

 

Glad to see you rocked everything else!!

Hey Lish,

 

Looks like you are doing great (no surprise there at all - you are AWESOME!).

 

I had a question - the Muay Thai - are you learning that at an actual class, or is it a video? (speaking as someone who definitely wants to try Muay Thai someday. The prof who taught my JKD knew muay thai, and it always looked really cool/scary/deadly in the best martial arts sense)

 

DFTBA!

-------Day Ten Report--------

 

Quest 1: Failing to plan, means planning to fail

Everything was travelling along well today - workout was done and meal plan followed! And as an added bonus I didn't feel quite so ravenous today - hopefully tomorrow will be similar!

 

QUEST 2: Fit and strong for the journey ahead 

Les Mills Combat today - it was 45 minutes long, I've done it multiple times before, but for somer reason today I felt really sick after I finished - like I needed top puke. It was quite gross, and something that I hope does not happen again anytime soon. Apart from that it went well and I was dripping with sweat afterwards, I always think that is a sign of a good workout. 

 

QUEST 3: Battle ready

Well I'm counting Les Mills Combat towards this goal - because it has Combat in the name and you spend the whole time punching and kicking the air - so why not?

 

LIFE QUEST: Move towards the light 

I will be back to the halloween party decorations tonight - I actually handed out a bunch of the invitations today, and one mother told me that this would be the first party that her daughter goes to (she is a foster child, and had a very rough beginning). It actually made me a bit teary to think of all the things that I just take for granted, and to think of the life I am giving my two girls. It was one of those moments that you realise - hey I'm actually a pretty awesome mum and I should be proud of myself - so yay!

You remind me a lot of my own mother, hard working and so loving to your children. They might not appreciate as much all they things you're doing for them now, but they will later on. I look back at all the things my mom has done for me and I appreciate it so much, so many small details that made my childhood sooo great. Keep going at it, you're doing an amazing job :)

It is a home workout DVD - I can't get to any gym that teaches it because I've got no one to look after the girls, and I have no money!

what happened? did he fall asleep, or was driving like an asshole or what? sounds like a lost control in a pretty major way.

 

Love the workout with much sweat, much blood no tears. You need to get that on a T Shirt

 

He looked behind him and then slammed into a parked car. So just your general bad/inattentive driving.

 

That would make a good t-shirt :P

Holiday fun with little one!


-------Day 16 Report--------


 


Quest 1: Failing to plan, means planning to fail


Today was a planned rest day - and I had a friend over for dinner so I baked up some sweet potatoes with a dash of olive oil and some cumin, cooked pan fried asparagus - and ate a huge hunk of rump steak. It was awesome.

LIFE QUEST: Move towards the light 


Today was great fun - the 3yo was at child care, so I got to spend the day with the 5yo - it is the first day we have had alone together since January and it was lovely :)


  • Went to the costume shop and got the 5yo her witch costume, complete with broom, tights and hat.
  • I also spent a good amount of time looking for my costume for the halloween party - I am going to be Captain MummyPants!!!! Arrrrr! So I checked out the ladies costumes and they were all waaaaaaay too raunchy. So I got a men's costume instead - stripy pants FTW! 
  • Went to a party shop to get a massive balloon - we'll be using it tomorrow with out papier mache morning - we are making a pumpkin pinata for the party.
  • Checked out a hobby shop and drooled over the Marvel model kits and the scenery stuffs for the train sets (I love mini trees for some reason).
  • Came back home and played memory (we drew), two games of Ludo (5yo won both times) and two games of Snakes & Ladders (I won :P).
  • Spent a good hour and a bit looking through all of the stuff we have got so far for the party - 5yo is much excited.
  • Plaited hair while watching My Little Pony - Equestria Girls.
  • Had mum over for afternoon tea, while my rubbish bins got replaced.
  • Had my BFF over for dinner, a cuppa and a long chat.
  • Now NF and then bed!

What? You didn't want to be Sexy Pirate? Or Slutty Pirate? I am soooo glad this isn't just an American problem. When I go looking for Halloween costumes, I'm always shocked by the women's options (always a "sexy" or a "slutty" in the title). And our late October can be very cold and rainy! I would like to wear more than a thong and some pasties.  :playful:  

 

You will need to post photos of Captain MummyPants!  :pirate:  :pirate:  :pirate:

God don't get my started on the sexy costumes. Bloody revolting! Seriously why don't we have more options that don't make us look like porn stars?

Week 3 mini challenge


 


1. Pinpoint the quest in your journey that is giving you the most uphill (or one that you're struggling to achieve)


So I think the hardest part for me is to get motivated to do my workouts (so related to my quest 2 and 3). Although I have stuck with it so far - I know that if I'm not careful I will let life get in the way and start making up excuses not to do them. 


 


2. Search through NF (forums or articles) to find one that is able to offer some assistance


So I did a little search, and..... How to Guarantee Victory Against the Motivation Monster seems like a fitting article to help me through.


 


3. Apply it to your challenge (no collecting underpants here).


So once the school holidays are over and things start to get busy again (at the start of 5) I am going to be very daring and change my workout schedule to get it done and dusted first thing in the morning - when nothing can get in the way and I won't be able to make any excuses. For the next week and a half I will slowly work on going to bed earlier and waking up earlier so that it won't be a huge shock to the system.

Great idea Lish, join me on the bandwagon of exercising first thing in the morning!! Yes, somedays I whine about it but it's soo worth to know that I don't have to cram it in after work. LMK if you need any encouragement or suggestions. Not sure if you use an alarm clock type deal but I've been using an app called Sleep Cycle that will wake you up in a window around your desired time based on when you are sleeping the lightest.
