Kailer

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to the Kailersaurus exhibit!!
We’ve got some great stuff for you this time. The Kailersaurus is out of the habitat right now, headed for bed (jammie pic!):

Our most exciting new plan is that the curators have decided to bring in a mate for the Kailersaurus – we’re hoping to see higher moods and activity levels with a friend around. On the first day of Week Two we’ll introduce Stephanguin, a happy penguin warrior.

We’ve also set some goals for the Kailersaurus to accomplish over the next 6 weeks. The Kailersaurus has now become acclimated to the confinement in the exhibit, and has begun to flourish. Additionally, as curators, we have gained much knowledge on what works for her.

Goals!!

Goal One, Diet: Make "Better" or "Best" Choices.
This one will change each day, but what matters is that I record the rationale behind each choice. Because the Kailersaurus is a binge eater, the goal is to put thought between the craving and the consumption, not that the thought has to be completely rational. Here are some examples:
- I want pizza. Normal choice, delivery. Better choice, a cheaper frozen pizza, which won't leave tons of leftovers. Best choice, learn to make cauliflower crust today!
- Work sucks and I need to get out of this office for lunch. Normal choice, I'm going to Golden Corral!! Better choice, I'm going to the BBQ place for meat and green chile stew. Best choice, I'll take my packed lunch to the park.

I hope this makes sense. The point is that thought, of ANY kind, totally demolishes the bizzaro world of binge craving. My body has fallen into this mid-160's place, seems comfortable, and now I can work on lifetime wellness with my diet, working with something I hate to call, but maybe should, an eating disorder.

Scoring: Best choice = 2 pts.
Better choice = 1 pt.
Normal choice = 0 pts.

Goal Two, Diet: Boozes on Weekends Only
No ambiguity here! Booze during the week is just not a good look on me. I love how I feel when I'm functioning at full force Monday - Friday.

Scoring: Weekend boozes only: 2 pts.
One weekday booze: 1 pt.
More than one: 0 pts.

Goal Three, Activity: Go to the Park 3 Times a Week
I LOVE time at the park. It gives me something to look forward to each day at work. The forecast for next week never tips 90F - I know we'll see it again in Texas, but... well. It's all about habit building. I love to run, and walk, and jog. 3 times a week I will get dressed and get to my trail. If it's SO HOT, I can walk for 30 minutes and rock on with my day. If it's 75F (it will be on Saturday!!) I will run 5000 miles because its perfect outside!! Either way, habit building. Get dressed, go to park. Easy, right?

Scoring: 3 Park Days: 2 pts.
2 Park Days: 1 pt.
1 Park Day: 0 pts.

Life Goal, Style: Get Up 10 Minutes Earlier Each Week
This is a progressive goal. The curators will set the alarm ten minutes earlier each week for the Kailersaurus - the GET UP alarm, not a snooze alarm. Feet on the floor! This is a real challenge as Stephanguin has a totally different schedule, but equally noisy alarms. Here's the schedule:
Week 1: 7:40 AM
Week 2: 7:30 AM
Week 3: 7:20 AM
Week 4: 7:10 AM
Week 5: 7:00 AM
Week 6: 6:50 AM

Scoring:
Get Up each week day: 2 pts.
Miss one week day: 1 pt.
More than one missed day: 0 pts.

The Kaileraurus can do ANYTHING! during the extra time. Hopefully hair and make up from earlier challenges... maybe some walking or hula hooping... or maybe just Law and Order (must be in Living Room!) when I'm not feeling it. Becoming a morning person is the main goal in the Kailersaurus' attempt to evolve into modern society. She's not a morning dinosaur. Training will help, but training can't always substitute for talent.

LET'S DO THIS!!

The Kailersaurus may be grumbly with such early wake times. We will have to observe it carefully for signs of unrest.

It was great to have my parents here. They are such an inspiration for me, because I want to be an inspiration for them. I think it's working - they eat more and more like me every time we meet. My dad has learned to love sweet potatoes (insomuch as sweet potatoes can be covered by bacon) and we went for BBQ today and NO ONE got a sandwich. We all enjoyed much meatiness for its own greatness. Then we walked a few miles at the zoo. Yesterday we played Munchkin most of the day and I made eggs and sausage for breakfast, and a beef/veggie/salsa skillet for dinner. They broke out gardettos in the middle, but still. It was a pretty good day for the diet.

 

Something amazing happened today - my step mom surprised us with a picture and posted it to facebook. I went into panic mode... OHNO OHNO there is no way that was a good angle, I know I look fat and frumpy! But then... I look just fine! I defaulted to a silly face when I realized she was taking a photo, I'd like to control that impulse, but at least I didn't have to hide the photo. So, here's me and my dad!

I love the better/best choices! Also good luck with the early rising - I'm also gonna be trying to get up, if not earlier, then at least at a reasonable time to fit morning run in before work!
