Recommended Posts

It's been ages since I've done one of these! So, kind of starting 1/3 the way through, oh well! After camp I feel so so motivated to keep at it. I'll write something up about it if anyone is interested. But I think others have covered it better. :)

 

Current Weight: 63.5kg

Goal: 56kg

 

Current dress size: 8 pants, 10 top

Goal: 7 pants, 10 top will never change (please don't ever shrink, awesome boobs. I just realised that's what I said last time, to 12 top...)

 

Goal 1

 

Eat to blood type O

- 1 avoid foods per week

- Focus on highly beneficial foods

- record meals on youtube for future reference and sharing

 

+4 CON

 

Goal 2

 

Walk and Swim

 

- Swim 2-3 times a week

- Walk 10,000 steps on days I don't swim


+3 STA
 

Goal 3

 

Strengthen and flex

 

- Acrobatics class once a week

- convict training as required by plan

- flexibility workouts daily


+2 STR +2 DEX
 

Life Goal

 

Share the things I learn

 

For too long I have been writing and planning and not sharing. This was really evident to me at Camp Nerd Fitness when people would ask me about the stuff I've learnt or have read. A lot of people thanked me for their encouragement and help and I feel like I should be making that more open. I shouldn't be afraid of sharing the weird things that happen in my head! Some people really want to hear them! You guys are my tribe of weirdos. 

 

You can follow me at: www.facebook.com/DanielleRiekwel

 

so my tasks are:

 

Share something every day

Make my planners pretty and available for others to use

Read every day

+2 WIS +2CHA

 

Alright folks! let's get this going! *does a quiet tumbling run into the night... while drunk*

Don't you love playing in the park? I've been doing that today, climbing upside down on the monkey bars. Getting all the kids to hop up there with me and try and show me up! HAHA! Gave a form check to a random 16 year old trying to do l-sits. haha!

 

I did box jumps and step ups, weighted squats and lunges (Kid on my back) and for arms I did assisted pull-ups, hanging with shoulders set and pulling as much as I could (1 milimetre?). I also hung upside down and did some flips around the bar and climbed around the top. And handstands. And pushups.

 

Oh man, what didn't I do? I was exhausted at the end of it. My daughter had an amazing amount of energy and wanted me to let her hang more. I still had to carry her home too! (1km walk)

Love your goals! They're simple but can have a huge impact. Let me know how the blood type thing goes. I'm still not ready to give up avocado.

And I can't wait to see what you come up with on the sharing thing.

You aren't late.  We were kinda busy kicking butt and being heroes last week...  I miss all of you guys already... 

 

Kick ass..  :)  You can do it.  Your second task is like mine...

A rebel is never late, nor is she early, she arrives precisely when she means to. :)

 

Like Jeffery said, it's hard blogging about changes in your life when you're too busy out accomplishing them!

 

I'm excited to see how your acrobatics training goes. Take lots of pictures/videos of your progress!

 

 

I did box jumps and step ups, weighted squats and lunges (Kid on my back) and for arms I did assisted pull-ups, hanging with shoulders set and pulling as much as I could (1 milimetre?).

 

I've been using my toddlers as weights too! When we're outside, all of my kiddos line up for baby bench press. :) They love it, and I'm building muscle! 

 

You're amazing, Dani. Keep up the awesome work.

 

You're a hero!

Aw thanks for the love, guys! I miss y'all too!

 

wxstormer-  I got the idea from you! Thanks for the inspiration!

 

Eating for your bloodtype... visit this page RIGHT NOW:

 

http://www.dadamo.com/

 

I just ordered the cookbook for type O and I love it! It's like taking Paleo to the next level, I'll be writing a summary and posting it soon on my facebook feed.

 

UPDATES:

 

Goal 1: eating

 

This is rock solid amazing. I've been clean eating for two years, so not too hard. The hardest for me is lunch. My daughter goes to sleep and then I have to... make a salad? LAME. So today I just chucked left over quinoa, kale, half a capsicum and some goats cheese. Lime juice for acid. Delicious and simple, how I roll. 

 

I've been working on a "happy" bulletproof chai tea recipe. Just trying to get the measurements right and then I'll be sharing that.

 

CONVICT TRAINING IS THE BEST. As a nomadic hobbit (I probably should be kender) I don't have space in my backpack for equipment. This book points out that you can often get to a stronger, healthier space by just using bodyweight. Also note: one of the wizards from CNF is the model trainee in this book! So if you were wondering what one of the classes was about, get the book and you have the knowledge.

 

so right now I'm working out one of the big 6 per day.

Pullups

bridges

handstand pushups

leg raises

one legged squats

pushups

 

the book has good progressions and is really my style of work out (get in fast, get out fast = gains)

Acrobat training turned out to be a bit lame. :( too big a class, too much standing around, not enough intense workout. 

 

Oh well. I'm going to try Aerobics class next week, I think!

I started this challenge after the start as well.

 

I think your goal of sharing is pretty cool, I'm subbing to see what gets shared.  Piqued my interest for sure.

 

Also I did Convict conditioning for a long time, it was a straight forward system for me to follow.

I look forward to seeing how it works for you.

I worked out my bridges today. I decided that I should try the beginners exercises, even though I can do about 5 bridges in a row. well, I didn't pass even intermediate level. looking forward to seeing improvement on a weekly basis! Tomorrow is handstands! I'll post videos of my skills :)

 

here's what I made for dinner last night!

My husband has joined me for workouts! I have designated him as a giant assassin. He's 40cm taller than me. over a foot!

It's been great bonding over exercise. I'm so happy to keep it up with him

 

I've eaten my avoid food for the week - chocomel. It is dark chocolate milk. It's amazing and was totally worth it. So if I see something I'm not supposed to eat now, I just say "oh well. not for me"

Having a partner is great!

 

My wife who happens to be a magical warrior pony (totally her words...) is my partner.  I find it incredibly helpful to have someone there for motivation reasons.  Plus its just more fun to have a buddy.

 

I have never heard of chocomel, but it sounds deliciously dangerous lol.

Kyliewyotie: it really is the most delicious thing in the world. I gulp it down, it's impossible to savour.

 

So this week has been great, not skipped a workout, been eating to plan... UNTIL

 

Dani comes up against the cold virus! She chooses liquids and rest as her weapon. 

 

I've just been keeping up walking and doing a small amount of strength training, when I really wanted to turn it up a notch this week. :( Trying not to get out of the exercise loop. Probably going to be doing yoga tonight just to get something in.

Last week: 63,500 steps.

And I developed a chest infection.

 

A bit out of action, but not entirely! I walk every day. Eat good foods. The plan is still on I just can't muster the energy to chase a 2 year old and perform feats of strength, especially not upside down.

 

Yoga. Recovery. Rest.

Hey Dani, you made a comment on Jessikuh's thread about Chris Guillebeau's books and was wondering what order you thought a person should read them in. Asking here because didn't want to highjack Jessikuh's thread to have a conversation with you. You also mentioned you followed some of his advice. What have you done? Hope you get to feeling better.

Ok so update time:

 

I've been getting my walking in. I need to get some vitamin D tablets today because I learned that bronchitis is often a side effect of vitamin d deficiency. Which makes total sense because as soon as it starts getting darker and rainier I don't go outside anymore, I get SAD, and I get bronchitis.

 

I have been feeling better this week so I picked up the training again. I did a huge squat set on saturday, some epic yoga and a 8km bike ride on sunday, and today I did 100 bent over rows (on each side) (don't have a pull up bar)

 

Eating is going pretty good. I'd say I'm letting two avoid things a week slip into my diet. oops. I also find that I've been eating bigger portions of food, because I'm inside and not in a hurry to get out. Working on it.

 

The sharing thing has been the easiest goal. I feel like it has changed my life even. I'm making this awesome planner at the moment, and I'm testing it as I do it. I'm so excited to share it with the world!

I would read the art of nonconformity, pursuit of happiness, 100$ start up. - because the art of non conformity gears you up to the idea of being different and that being a good thing. Then the pursuit of happiness helps you to figure out what sparks you into action, and the 100$ start up gives a lot of examples on how to do that.
I will be writing about these things on my facebook page soon, so thanks for the inspiration! let me know what you think of them!

What's your facebook page? You should put a link in your signature. And I'll let you know what I think about the books when I finish them. Problem is that everyone has so many great suggestions about books on here that I'm swamped. Currently I'm reading "I Will Teach You To Be Rich" by Ramit Sethi and "It Starts With Food" the book about the Whole30 diet. Several people on the NF forum have mentioned the Whole30 so thought I would look into it. I do have the first two books you mentioned and I'm looking forward to them.

Good one Bearlee, will do that.

 

Here's an update:

 

I didn't really achieve goals other than eating well and walking.

 

I did lose 1 kilo though.

 

I'm working on something cool for next round though... oh yeah, my fourth goal has been going great! haha!
