Calories tracked through lunch today - planning to track for dinner too, as I have the day off and have no excuse. 

 

Just what you needed!

hey long time no update, where you at?

 

I am alive!  Thanks for checking in.  Everything is going well, I am just crazy busy at work, so by the time i get home, work out, walk the dog, eat, etc,etc, the computer time falls by the wayside.  Which, all things considered, is probably how it should be, right? 

 

 

Hey there, nice goals!  Keep it up! I like using MFP too, it has been key for me to make my food goals. 

 

Well, I can't say I LIKE using MFP, as I am a terrible tracker and a lot of times I find it tedious.  But I do find it useful for keeping my calories in check and keeping myself honest on what I eat, and the types of food I eat.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Now let's see... what the hell day am I on....

 

Oh! Day 16!  

 

Sorry for the gap in updates.  Life has been just crazy busy, but luckily that includes working out and tracking my food.  I have been able to keep up with my YAYOG training and I fit in both my yoga sessions for last week. :) 

 

YAYOG - Not really liking weeks 3 and 4 overall.  I don't feel like I am doing enough for a workout, even though I am doing my reps and increasing difficulty when necessary.  And I know these weeks are about muscle building, but it feels REALLY slow.  Looking forward to weeks 5/6 to see what that brings. 

 

Yoga has been great.  Just a couple of sessions a week leaves me feel nice and stretched out. 

 

MFP is going OK.  I am admittedly a terrible tracker, but I have managed to track everything thus far, except for last Sunday (which still meets my goal of 6 out of 7 days for the week).  Back at it again today. 

 

No life goals accomplished yet, although I might tweak it to be one chapter of material and one journal club session, as I have spent time reading an article there and making a powerpoint for presenting/teaching.  I think it counts in the "learn more" area.... 

 

Plan is for YAYOG later (maybe - if my migraine subsides) or cranking the rest of the sessions out on W/Th/F.  We'll see what happens.

Just catching up! Wisconsin is beautiful in fall. I lived in Milwaukee for about 4 years. Lots of green spaces!

Your hubby and mine would get along. I know just have a table in the garage and he gets 24 hours of tools in the house, after that they go back to the table even if project isn't finished.

Keep up the good work!

good work keeping up with the important stuff despite the busyness

 

I think weeks 3 and 4 are frustrating for a lot of people, I know I'm the same as you. I think when we move in to the power phase things will jazz up a bit

 

Thanks! I am looking forward to next week, but actually today's pull workout felt challenging, so that was good. 

 

Also I do my daily yayog with something else and then I feel more like I've had a full workout

 

Well, I always try to walk 1-2 miles with the dog (and hubby usually) and by the time I do that, work out, eat some dinner, it feels like I'm getting ready for bed for work the next day! Oi!

I am just south of Milwaukee! Nice to see you know the area. :)  We are enjoying fall, but it snuck up on us. 

 

The table idea is genius!  Maybe I can translate that to my household. :D

Today is going just ducky.  YAYOG completed (Week 4, day 3), pull session today.  Felt challenging, and I took my time, did some extra pauses in places.  Also have tracked all my calories so far, although I must say my food choices have been pretty bad the past few days. :(  We have someone transferring locations at work, so I was baking and food was about at work for 2 days now and it's a bad situation.  Chicken fajitas for dinner tonight tho, so that should be healthy. 

 

Also, this week I am substituting one of my yoga sessions for a Barre Code class (yup, I still have to use those up from last challenge) so I will be doing that Saturday morning with some friends before going out for my birthday (it's a week early, but you know, celebrate when you can get everyone in the same room :)

 

Also, mini 3 is hard for adventurers!  I apparently am really bad at working protein into my diet (though I try to have some with every meal!)  Yesterday I probably hit 75-80 grams when shooting for 120 g daily.... but I'm not surprised with my crappy eating I suppose.. getting back on track, like, now.

Hey just came to check out your thread as a fellow YAYOGer and here I see you're also a fellow Wisconsinite! :D Fall is looking awesome so far this year, by far my absolute favorite season.

 

Great work with the YAYOGs (as usual by this point!) and looks like you're blazing through your challenge. Good to hear you're liking the yoga as well, I'm thinking about adding some of that in next challenge...

Hey hey, which area in Wisconsin are you from!  I'm south east, Kenosha area.  Hoping you're a Green Bay diehard?! Because they were ass-kickin' mean last night. :D 

 

I think a lot of the guys I have talked to like the book "Yoga for men"?  Hit up ItsDaniel or cn3wton.  They probably have some good starter tips for guys wanting to add in some stretching/flex training. And I also love doyogawithme.com (totally chromecast compatible!)

 

Thanks for swinging by!

Bah!  I am so bad about updating on the weekend!  But I am still keeping up with my goals, so that's what counts. :D 

 

MFP - completed for the week - missed Tuesday, but that's still within my goal of 6/7.  Went over on my calories this weekend celebrating my birthday with friends, but not by too much and got in some workouts before/after the festivities.  

 

Yoga  - 2/2 sessions for the week.  (replaced one session with the Interval class at the Barre code and it was CRAZY hard.  So many burpees! My back and calves were KILLIN' me yesterday, and are still sore today)

 

YAYOG - Finished all my sessions for week 4, and now starting week 5 today!

 

I have to get back to preparing food on the weekends for the week to get some healthy options going again.  I am doing OK but it could be better.  I also need to quit doing the "oh, just a little" when sweet things come my way... My sweet tooth is rearing it's ugly head and I am not being very good about my willpower.  I have started drinking more water again instead of eating, and haven't gained weight, but really haven't seem to lost any either.  Though, to be honest, I haven't been on the scale since the beginning of the challenge.   

 

Still walking a mile or two a day with the dog in addition to my planned workouts.  

 

Sometimes I find myself wondering if tracking is helping or harming me... I am one of those with the mentality "well, if I have the calories left, I could probably eat [insert unnecessary snack here]."  I did find that when I wasn't tracking it at least seemed like I was eating less.  Maybe I have to work on my eating schedule.  It just feels like lately it's been everything in sight is fair game!  Bah, again. 

 

Well, the exercise portion is going well anyway...

I can fall into that pattern of eating too.  I started doing that when I first started tracking especially because I didn't feel like I was eating enough.  But I adjusted the macros a bit.  So now, if I eat the wrong thing I'll go too far over on some macro even though I have calories leftover.  It helps deter the 'I have calories left for ice cream'.

I am having a terrible time tracking right now. I'm sticking to my work out goals and that is it.

Great job posting and keeping us informed about what is happening. Also way to rock the YAYOG challenge!

 

Thank you!  Glad you stopped by. And thanks for the YAYOG love.  I always feel like I should be doing more, at least with the other muscle groups, but then I remember they are supposed to be resting.  Sigh.  Will have to increase the walking or stationary bike or something.

I'm afraid I'm not really familiar with the term "macro" when it comes to eating?  I always think of it as a key command in WoW. :D  Care to share more?

I am by no means an expert so if anyone finds anything incorrect about my explanation, please jump in.  Disclaimer aside, macro is the amount of protein, carbs, and fat that make up whatever your daily calorie count is.  I used the If It Fits Your Macros site (I can't seem to get the link to work) to calculate my daily calories then it you get a recommendation for how many grams of protein, carbs, and fats you should be getting to meet your calories goals.  I modified MyFitnessPal to match the recommendation.  I've adjusted it a little over time to be more realistic.  But even when I am low on calories, I may be over on fats or something so I know the only way to eat more is if the choices have the right combination.  I also liked the website as it seemed more reliable in calculating your calories for the day since it asks more questions.  Turns out it was pretty close to what MFP recommended.

Wow, too many days go by!  So busy reading other posts!

 

Everything has been going well. Keeping up with YAYOG.  No yoga yet this week - will try to fit some in over the weekend. Tracking is going better - I have put some more energy into making myself track.  Unfortunately, today I decided to make treats for work, since tomorrow is my 30th birthday.  Decided to go nerdy and make Butterbeer Cupcakes in true Harry Potter style.  Good news is, most of the people at work will eat them.  Bad news is they are freaking delicious and I will probably have one too.  But hey, a little birthday treat is ok methinks.  I took pics, but not sure that a health site is the bed venue for posting desserts! :D

 

I think I need to invest in one of those doorway pull up bars.  Doing the assisted pull ups with a door is a bit tricky and I'm not sure I like it. 

 

2 miles walked with Zo-dog today. :)

Good work on your exercise and Happy Birthday!  I think you are allowed to have a cupcake on your birthday.  Fitness is important, but if you try to hold yourself to a standard that you can't maintain, it will be too easy to fall off the wagon.

 

I am a bit worried about the pull-ups for week 5 (which I start next week).  If I do them on a door, I think I will break the door.  I need to find something strong enough to hold me up.

Thank you!  30 feels a lot like 29! Except this year I might be a hair stronger. ;) 

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

 

Also send some of those cupcakes my way!

 

Thank you!  I'm pretty sure they wouldn't make the trip to merry ol' England... How about a pic

So you will all appreciate that on my actual birthday, after a long week of early shifts, my evening went a bit like this: 

 

Came home, walked the dog, finished week 5 of YAYOG (core workout), watched an episode of Criminal Minds while biking on the stationary for 35 minutes, played with Yoga poses for 30+ minutes out of my new yoga book (counts as 1 yoga session for the week), and then fell asleep promptly at 7:45 pm.  Talk about an old lady! ;) In my defense I volunteered for an extra shift on Saturday that also started as 0630, so I couldn't have gone out anyway.  And I enjoyed all the fitness time that day. 

 

Saturday I worked and then did some wine tasting with some family.  Drank too much wine again, but over all had a good day. :)  No official workout yesterday - was my day off for the week.  

 

Today we are doing some home brewing while watching the Packers game and then will finish up with some Yoga.  Sounds like a perfect Sunday to me. 

 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
