That sounds fantastic, too. Sadly, TJs was out this weekend - actually, it looked like a hurricane was rolling in, they were out of so much.

Wahoo!  A great week 1!  I feel so much better about your hazlenut photo... hehe!

 

And here is a photos of my chicken spaghetti squash soup!  I made the base of the soup with out any type of noodles.  Then I spooned it over a large portion of spaghetti squash.  My family had egg noodles.

Week 2 Day 1 Update

 

Goal 1: Fitness

 

Re-focusing on my favorite: bodyweight workouts + yoga. Keep up my 4-5 day a week workout schedule and pick a program to follow. 

 

img_8490.jpg

 

Did 30 minutes on the treadmill creating my own kind of program - walked at a good clip and kept throwing in increasingly steep hills. This was about all I could handle - the night before, I woke up in the middle of the night because something jumped in my eye while I slept and I managed to probably scratch the inside of my eyelid while I was trying to sleepily take it out. I wore my glasses all day, which leads to pressure headaches from the weight + I can't do anything upside down, jumpy, or that involves rapid focusing on reading lest I get dizzy or nauseous. I was able to take my glasses off and close my eyes and go, which is kind of amazing when you consider that just a year ago my balance was so shitty I would have injured myself doing something as advanced as tread milling quickly with closed eyes.

 

I think tonight (Tuesday) is going to be more of the same. My eye was still a bit sore this morning and I could use a second day's rest. 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics

 

As a refresher, my metrics are: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat and around 1500 calories. Water is the recommended by FitBit 64 ounces, and on the weekends I like my step count to be over FitBit’s recommended 10,000. I am also doing Whole30 this January. Follow along here

 

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie + hemp protein powder & coffee with homemade almond milk

Lunch: Steamed chicken & veggies Chinese leftovers 

Dinner: Fonzico's caramelized onion meatballs with zoodles & balsamic

Snack: Roasted cashews

 

Calories: 1,170 / 1,500

Carbs: 54 / 100

Fat: 56 / 100

Protein: 106 / 70

 

 

Goal 3: Get My Shit Digitized

 

Send more of my mother's pictures + other things off to get digitized. 

 

Did I work on this goal today? Nope. I did, however, knit.

 

 

Goal 4: Get Out Of My Comfort Zone

 

Do something out of my comfort zone - ideally once each week. 

 

Did I work on this goal today? Kinda. I RSVP'd in the affirmative to a knitting meetup + brunch this weekend.

Lol. In an effort to not have 999999 half finished projects lying about when my attention span wanders, I won't let myself start a new project until I finish the one I'm working on - which is why I have a crapton of unfinished projects - and parts of crafts that I no longer do. Like this GD SCARF I'VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR 2 YEARS. Makes sense, no?

HaHaHaHa. I always picture my 'future self' in some sort of badass silver Judy Jetson type moon outfit. 

 

@kwebs: meh. It's better than the bike - but dare I even say it - not as good as the dreaded treadmill. I hate how my toes always hit the front of the guard because I'm short and the walky pole things on this one aren't built for shorties, either. Plus, don't have a grasp on the levels of this one -- 10 on the treadmill programs is too easy, but on the elliptical I was throwing my bodyweight on each leg to work the damn thing. I'm pretty sure that isn't the best thing ever for you. 

 

If I ever don't live somewhere tiny, that bananas elliptical/treadmill hybrid thing looks intriguing. I also hit the guard on a treadmill, which is also annoying - but I like to hang on so I don't fall off.

Goal 1: Fitness

 

Re-focusing on my favorite: bodyweight workouts + yoga. Keep up my 4-5 day a week workout schedule and pick a program to follow. 

 

Yay, I wore my contacts today and my eyeballs didn't fall out. Did Day 3 of my PopSugar Get Fit 2015 Challenge - Full-Body Calorie-Crushing Circuit. This was a good one - I got a little sweaty, had to find modifications to keep myself off my wrists where possible -- I even managed to do pushups from my elbows. Not sure what that was working, but they were damn hard.

Week 2 Day 4 Update

 

Goal 1: Fitness

 

Re-focusing on my favorite: bodyweight workouts + yoga. Keep up my 4-5 day a week workout schedule and pick a program to follow. 

 

Today was a prescribed cardio day. Day 4 of the PopSugar Get Fit 2015 Challenge was Flat Belly Run - a 30-minute interval session for the treadmill. I did mine with some modifications - I did the first grouping right, expanded the second grouping's rest to the 'hard' level, extended the third grouping's 'moderate' and rest levels out (dropping 'hard'); but completed the 4th grouping correctly. My left leg as giving me drama with feeling way too tight and I didn't want to push harder than necessary. Level 7 for me is really freaking fast.

Sooooooooo….. Whole30 dreams. I has them. 

 

I’m in Scotland walking across this stony moor with my boyfriend, The Doctor (10), my other boyfriend (some sort of gentle earth hippie soul), and someone else - possibly Rory? and we’re on our way to Skye to sell some of the weapons DB used in the uprising (Outlander, anyone?). 

 

We rent a car and pile in and the boys decide food needs to be had so they stop at a cheesesteak drive-in and order. I’m too busy looking out the window thinking/apathetic to order for myself, so DB orders me a cheesesteak with fries. I’m bummed that it isn’t compliant, and that no salad was forthcoming. So of course they seat the bag of food next to me (I’m alone in the mid seats of the I guess long SUV). And I go about taking 2-3 bites out of everything with DB’s encouragement because ‘2 bites doesn’t count’. 

 

And then we’re walking to some sort of red hippie hobbit lodge place we are staying and DB’s all fire and rage upset about me going off with OtherBoyfriend but I tell him tough. That’s how it is (ala the book I’m currently reading about werewolves/dhampires/vampires).

 

OtherBoyfriend and I break away and ride off in the back seat of a subway car. Snuggle comfort. 

 

And somehow I’m at a very polite and orderly orgy in a sauna in Sweden trying to take a nap when DB finds me, engrossed in conversation about science but sleepy because nap.  

 

And then in a huge kitchen where I’m talking to her as she preps a huge dinner she’s catering, a friend keeps pouring me Kool-Aid and I keep drinking it until someone remembers it has sugar in it, and I’m bummed. 

 

Donuts were in there somewhere, but I don’t remember how they fit in.

@BC: HaHaHaHa. CheeseSTEAK; not CheeseCAKE. :) 

 

@Fonzico: I pushed myself, but not insanely hard. I think I struck the balance between being too afraid/self defeatist to push myself hard enough & pushing harder - injuries be damned - to erase the hint of weakness. I listened to my freakout brain a bit, let it do its thing, and then modified where I felt I needed to modify after the freakiest had spun for a minute. Plus, I had the beginnings of a stitch in my side when I was done and I was sweaty, so I had to be doing *something* right.

Week 2 Days 5-7 Update & Week 2 Wrap-up

 

Goal 1: Fitness

 

Re-focusing on my favorite: bodyweight workouts + yoga. Keep up my 4-5 day a week workout schedule and pick a program to follow. 

 

Friday

Today was a rest day.

 

Saturday

Today was a walking day - got 11,000-something steps in walking to the grocery store and back + to my meetup. 

 

Sunday

I had planned on walking a bunch, but it was cold and rainy - we made it to brunch (a little under a mile), trained it to Whole Foods, and trained it back. Then we huddled under blankets watching movies and snuggling the dog all night. 

 

Week 2 Wrap-up: I did good here. I modified where I needed to in order to give my wrist a rest, but I didn't use that as an excuse to slack off. A

 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics

 

As a refresher, my metrics are: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat and around 1500 calories. Water is the recommended by FitBit 64 ounces, and on the weekends I like my step count to be over FitBit’s recommended 10,000. I am also doing Whole30 this January. Follow along here

 

Friday

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie + hemp protein powder & coffee with homemade almond milk

Lunch: Leftover Spicy Tuna Cakes + apple/mint salad

Dinner: Went out for dinner - had grilled chicken with sweet potato and a few bites of the herbed fig relish + cucumber water

Snack: Fancy W30 cocktail - raspberries & orange with seltzer water

 

Calories: 1,146 / 1,500

Carbs: 93 / 100

Fat: 55 / 100

Protein: 76 / 70

 

 

Saturday

Breakfast: Coffee with almond milk from the building kiosk + a late breakfast after getting back from grocery shopping of eggs & pulled pork

Lunch: Breakfast was really more like lunch and the bar I went to my knitting meetup at had nothing compliant on the menu. I did, however, have a kombucha on tap. 

Dinner: Picked up some deli takeout on the way home - baked salmon with brussels sprouts & broccoli

Snack: Roasted cashews & a fancy W30 cocktail of raspberries, oranges and seltzer water

 

Calories: 1,110 / 1,500

Carbs: 28 / 100

Fat: 66 / 100

Protein: 94 / 70

 

 

Sunday

Breakfast: Coffee with almond milk from the new coffee kiosk in the building, then a long cold and wet slog to brunch, where I had pan-seared smoked pork shoulder with 2 eggs, a light herbed salad and roasted garlicky brussels.

Lunch: I was still stuffed to the gills, so I skipped it. 

Dinner: Home made burger & sweet potato fries night

Snack: Seltzer & orange drinks

 

Calories: 1,221 / 1,500

Carbs: 45 / 100

Fat: 67 / 100

Protein: 105 / 70

 

Week 2 Wrapup: I did good here this week. W30 is on target, and as such, so are my metrics. A

 

 

Goal 3: Get My Shit Digitized

 

Send more of my mother's pictures + other things off to get digitized. 

 

Did I work on this goal this weekend? Nope. I knitted a bunch instead.

 

Week 2 Wrap-up: I didn't get my stated goal done this week, but I have definitely worked hard toward another goal - that damn scarf. A for effort. 

 

 

Goal 4: Get Out Of My Comfort Zone

 

Do something out of my comfort zone - ideally once each week. 

 

Did I work on this goal this weekend? Yep. I went to my knitting meetup and had a good time. 

 

Week 2 Wrap-up: I went out of my comfort zone this week. A

Week 3 Day 2 Update

 

Goal 1: Fitness

 

Re-focusing on my favorite: bodyweight workouts + yoga. Keep up my 4-5 day a week workout schedule and pick a program to follow. 

 

 

Day 7 of the PopSugar Get Fit 2015 Challenge was the No Running Cardio Blast. This is a repeat from last week, but was still good. I was freaking exhausted during it and could barely lift my legs at times (why do high knees kill me so damn much?!) but kept going. I rested a bunch and half-assed it during burpees, mountain climbers & cross jacks, but I stuck in there at least. 

 

 

Goal 2: Metrics

 

As a refresher, my metrics are: 100 grams or under of carbs, 70 grams or over of protein, under 100 grams of fat and around 1500 calories. Water is the recommended by FitBit 64 ounces, and on the weekends I like my step count to be over FitBit’s recommended 10,000. I am also doing Whole30 this January. Follow along here

 

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie + hemp protein powder & coffee with homemade almond milk

Lunch: Pulled pork + cabbage sauteed in ghee

Dinner: Lazy-ass Mexican bowl: half an avocado, salsa, pulled pork & Choula

Snack: Home made pork bone broth

 

Calories: 1,265 / 1,500

Carbs: 44 / 100

Fat: 78 / 100

Protein: 112 / 70

 

 

Goal 3: Get My Shit Digitized

 

Send more of my mother's pictures + other things off to get digitized. 

 

Did I work on this goal today? Nope. I didn't knit, either.

 

 

Goal 4: Get Out Of My Comfort Zone

 

Do something out of my comfort zone - ideally once each week.

Ooh, I really liked the "failure" quote.  That's a good one.  It reminds me of something that my mom was talking to me about just yesterday about not being frustrated with beginning steps.  Nobody yells at a toddler and calls them a loser for falling down when they first learn to walk.  Falling down is an expected part of the process.  And so is getting back up and trying again.
