Plan for week 1:

 

YAYOG: Monday and Thursday - upper body, Tuesday and Friday - lower body

Food:

  • Breakfasts will be either protein shake w/ milk or peaches and cottage cheese
  • Morning: protein shake if needed
  • Afternoon: protein shake or hard boiled eggs
  • Lunch/Dinner: Making 2# of chicken in the crockpot now. Will make chili tomorrow after stopping at the store on my way home (I do not make chili with ground beef >.<). If needed I will cook up more chicken on Wednesday. Will be eating 2-4 servings of veggie with each meal.
  • No more than 2 fancy coffee drinks

Stretching: Aiming for some yoga every day, will roll Tuesday and Friday night and on Sunday

Positive social interactions: Joined 3 accountabilibuddy groups, will cheer on at least one person a day.

Love that you have your week planned out! I really need to start doing this.

It's something new I'm trying to make myself more accountable. I REALLY want to set myself up to win and I've learned that plans help with the winning!

I love all the measurements you included in your baseline, that makes it so much easier to evaluate progress. Great challenge setup.

 

Thanks! I find that its hard to measure progress if you don't know where you started. I also know that I'm more likely to loose inches rather than weight because I generally pack on muscle >.< which is why my end goal is body fat rather than weight. The thought of 150-155 is appealing but I don't know if it's realistic, but I KNOW I can get my body fat down :D.

 

I set up a spreadsheet to track my measurements and do various body fat calculations if you're interested. It's not pretty but it works.

That's great to hear Kenyo, and I'm always happy to meet a fellow assassin! What are you going to be doing to work on your flexibility?

 

You might want to check in on starsapart. She's planning on starting aerial acrobatics classes in November.

Great start on your challenge.  Well done.  Can't wait to see more.  And I believe we not only share YAYOG but are also aboard the same ship, eh?   Looking forward to bodyweight workouts aboard ship.

Holy crap, Amdhiel! What an impressive first day. Definitely subbing to see how you improve over these next 6 weeks.

Ahoy there, me fellow CutLass! :)

Those look like some excellent goals for this challenge; I'll be sub'ing and pulling for you, for sure! If I may say so, it's really cool of you to make a goal of reaching out to encourage others. :-D I have a tendency to read read read and not always comment, so I'll be working on that as well!

Good luck to ye, and may the wind be always at your back!

First off, thanks for all the kind words and support. It's awesome how knowing I have people rooting for me makes following my goals so much easier! :) :)

 

Challenge Day 2:
Started the day with an easy bit of yoga and then did my YAYOG workout. Also was able to make it to my PT appointment that I had forgotten about (yay for reminders from my phone). The best part of PT was that my therapist had me show him my squats and lunges and told me that my form was spot on!! He also gave me a resistance band to help work on strengthening my hips more. I better on walking today currently just shy of 11000 steps which makes me happy :). I also had the pleasant surprise of being hungry a few different times today!

YAYOG:
Back Lunges 21 (-4)
RLDL 21 (-4)
Squats 46 (-14)
Swimmers 40 (-3)

My balance wasn't the best this morning causing decreases in the lunges and RLDL. Worked on going deeper and a bit slower in the squats. My sternum doesn't particularly like the swimmers, it's hard to get everything setup right so that I can engage my abs while keeping my ribs down and pelvis tucked >.<.

Food:
Breakfast: cottage cheese and peaches with coffee
Morning: n/a
Lunch: chicken w/ green beans
Afternoon: protein bar and tea
Dinner: chicken w/ yam

Calories: 1687, Carbs: 153, Protein: 165, Fat: 25

Flexibility: 20 minutes of yoga before YAYOG

Social: Made multiple posts of encouragement

 

Looks like another day of crushing goals!
