As I posted in my battle log, I seem to be back where I started from, so we're going to start at the beginning and do it right this time! 

I am going to run a 5k this year, at least one, I may participate in more than one but I am going to run one of them...

I am going to do this training program, which combines strength training and cardio, for the Strength training I am going to do 4 Minute Kettle Bell and Body Weight Workout.

 

My primary goals this challenge are to lose weight, control my inflammation (I have RA) and to work on my flexibility. My training will help with these items, as well as my paleo diet. I am going to start documenting what I eat again like I did at the beginning, while I am not going to track calories and every little detail, putting my daily menu (with links and recipes for those interested) will help me remain accountable and aware of what I am putting in my body. The last thing I am going to work on is every day I will be doing yoga, or meditating on days when time is a factor. My new duties at work make it where I get home later, and while I plan on working out before I go to work, yoga will primarily be done after work, if it is too late I will meditate for at least 10 minutes.

 

Points will be allocated like this

 

Workout/Training

A – All 36 workouts (+3 STR, +2STA)
B – Skipped 3-6 workouts (2 STR, +1.5 STA)
C – Skipped 7-9 workouts (+.1.5 STR, +1 STA)
D – Skipped 10-12 workouts (+1 STR, +.5 STA)
F – Skipped more than 13 workouts.

 

Yoga/Meditation

A – All 42 workouts (+2 CHA, +3 DEX)
B – Skipped 3-6 workouts (+1.5 CHA, +2 DEX)
C – Skipped 7-9 workouts (+1 CHA, +1 DEX)
D – Skipped 10-12 workouts (+.5 CHA, +.5 DEX)
F – Skipped more than 13 workouts.

 

Eating/Tracking

A - Eat right, track daily (+5 CON)
B - 2 cheats, miss tracking (+4 CON)
C - 4 cheats, miss tracking (+3 CON)
D - 6 cheats, miss tracking(+2 CON)
F - More than 7 cheats

 

Next Saturday may be a real challenge since it will be my Father's memorial, but I will adjust accordingly if I need to...let's make this the best year yet! :)

Rheumatoid arthritis...I discovered eating paleo and eliminating nightshades helps keep my inflammation down :)

Hello!

 

I like what you are doing in this challenge! Yoga is one of my favorite activities, and it has helped me numerous times throughout the last few years! I've recently added a 5k to my list of things to do this year, but I need to find a way around a few roadblocks.

I'm also happy to hear that paleo has worked so well for you! I love it when something that we do just clicks and we become better because of it!

Thank you for the recipe link! Looks yummy. I'll try it next time I cook chicken breasts.

Congrats on the clean eating!

Hiya hon :wub:

You did it before, you will do it again :) Not giving up is the important part.

A bit of a longer response...I really needed to hear this today, patience is not one of my virtues...I'm already ahead of what I would have done before, which is just say to hell with it and give up...

 

We are on day 2!

Breakfast - eggs and sweet potatoes 

Lunch - leftovers from dinner yesterday

Snack - 3 lara bars

Dinner - Paleo Shrimp Alfredo

 

Did a mile at 'cardio walk' pace on the treadmill

 

Had to cater a board meeting tonight at work...which means I did not get out till 7pm, which means I am exhausted...truck is tomorrow so I will get a bonus 'workout'...120 piece truck to put up :), Plus inventory, plus need to start getting my other department organized...

Can I say how happy I am the holidays are over with :D (seriously!)

<3 this...:D

 

Day 3...was so very tempting to stay in bed today, once again my fellow nerds motivated me to get out and work out, because I did not want to post that I had already skipped a workout this early in the challenge :)

Walked a mile, put up the truck at work

Breakfast - the usual

Lunch - leftover chicken/spinach/mushroom stuff from Monday

Snack - 3 lara bars (I really need to cut back on these...)

Dinner - Chicken enchilada casserole

 

Side note, making chicken bone broth and it smells amazing :D
