Roxy changes her focus


RoxyFreefall

Recommended Posts

So far all my challenges have been diet and exercise focused and I have seen mixed results. This time I am going to change things. Here's why...

 

I have been moving through life without really enjoying it. Without the sense of happiness. I find myself feeling blah all the time. I get my chores done, I get to work on time, and do things to the best of my ability, BUT I don't stop to smile or appreciate what life has given me enough. I am not saying I am oblivious and ungrateful, I am just saying I have lost my inner happiness somewhere along the way. I get pleasure from things but pleasure is a temporary emotion and is not the same as true inner happiness. This leads me to my goals.

1) This has two parts that work together.
(1) Do not complain about life. (no grumbling about work, no griping about someone or something)
(2) Live with gratitude. (find something positive in each day to be grateful for, the more things the better)

-The only thing gained from complaining is sadness, anger, and depression. With reflection on gratitude we gain happiness and satisfaction.

2) Create a morning ritual. (stretch/yoga, walk, etc.)
-I think I will start with waking up a few minutes earlier and stretching every morning, then making my breakfast and lunch. Maybe build up to a 15min walk along with my stretching. The idea here is to be alone, slowly wake up, and enjoy the morning. Start the day off on a peaceful note.

3) Love, Nurture, and Honor myself.
- This one is to learn to love myself. For example practicing the ritual of saying "I Love you" to my reflection daily. With eventually believing it.

4) Find opportunities through every day to smile. Smile more!

-get those happy hormones flowing through the brain.

5) Meditate/ Quiet time alone.
- I will find time each evening to meditate or just be alone with my thoughts (happy grateful thoughts of my day/life). I have never meditated but I think I will start with just a lotus position for a couple of minutes before bed.

6) Maintain (improve) Health; 2 part to this one
- Finally this one comes back to my usual fitness and good eating.

(1) stick with weight watchers simply filling plan foods for a total calorie intake of 1300-1400 6x/week with 2000 on a treat day. Off plan foods are allowed as long as the weight watchers points are tracked and the weekly total does not exceed 49. (But the lower this number stays the better.)

(2) walk 10,500 steps 5 days per week (cardio) with body weight/free weight work out 2x/week

Ultimate Goal:

My ultimate goal is to loose body fat. Same goal as always. But at the same time I would like to learn to enjoy life to its fullest.

 

Starting weight = 176.8lbs

 

Grading/Scoring:

I am forgoing any scoring this round and I may give that idea up completely. Instead I plan on finding a reward that I can hold on to. I will ponder this and see what I come up with.

It sounds like you've got a pretty good feel on how to begin movement towards better self compassion. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works for you as I struggle with this too.

I'm trying to be more positive this time around too. We can work on it together!

 

I've built up a morning routine and I really like it. It's taken me a while to realize it, but the reason it was hard for me to establish is because it meant continually choosing to prioritize myself (at least a little) over the other things pressing in on my day. Once I made it a challenge goal, I had an "excuse" to put myself first. I hope it works out well for you too.

I am absolutely loving your goals! 

 

I'm in the process of digesting the realization that - in the midst of this war we wage on our bodies - the goals we have are much easier to accomplish if we are happy and kind to ourselves. I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out for you :)

 

I particularly like the no-complaining goal - I might borrow it, even if unofficially. It's such a bad habit, and it only multiplies negativity. Either do something about it, or get over it, amiright? 

 

Best of luck to you!

Thank you all. I will do my best to not let you down (or myself ).

 

This weekend was full of bad eating. Weekends fall apart so easily because my meal plans tend to stop on Friday. Like Saturday and Sunday don't exist. LOL. This is definitely something to work on.

 

Oh an the Oscars have me up WAY past my bedtime so tomorrow morning is going to be rough, but it is day one and you should never fail on day one.

 

 

Either do something about it, or get over it, amiright?

You are absolutely right. I suggested this goal to my husband too. I am anxious to see if he tries it.

It was tough getting out of bed but I managed it. :triumphant: It was 6:12am, rather than my usual 6:30. Got up and within a couple of minutes started stretching. Stretched for 10 minutes.

 

Here is the list:

reach to the sky stretch with toe touch, neck rolls, alternating side stretch, seated spinal twist, cobra, child pose, cat-cow stretch, seated hamstring stretch, arm swings/circles

 

Felt great afterward, then completed my normal morning routine of getting ready for work.

Last night I decided on strength training rather than walking on the treadmill. Unless noted all reps were done using a resistance band. I also only did one set. It has been months since I did any strength stuff, so I am going to work up to 2-3 sets and 12-15 reps of each. I expect this will take some time considering the strength of the resistance band I am using. It came with my husbands p90x. I believe it to be a B8 band (40lbs). This band may be a little heavy but the only other one I have lighter is too light. I can make due with the B8 I think.

 

squats 15reps *no added resistance/weight

bicep curls 7reps

tricep extension 8reps

plank 20count *no added resistance/weight

back extensions 12reps

chest press 8reps

arm raises 8reps

side bends 10reps

single arm rows 10reps

cross knees to elbows *no added resistance/weight

 

I spent some time playing Disney Infinity on my new WiiU. Lost track of time so did not get in any reflection/meditation.

 

The running tally=

1) This has two parts that work together.
(1) Do not complain about life. (no grumbling about work, no griping about someone or something) 1/42
(2) Live with gratitude. (find something positive in each day to be grateful for, the more things the better)1/42

3) Love, Nurture, and Honor myself. 1/42
4) Find opportunities through every day to smile. Smile more! 1/42

5) Meditate/ Quiet time alone. 0/42
6) Maintain (improve) Health; 2 part to this one

(1) stick with weight watchers simply filling plan foods for a total calorie intake of 1300-1400 6x/week with 2000 on a treat day.

(2) walk 10,500 steps 5 days per week (cardio) with body weight/free weight work out 2x/week 0/30; 1/14

 

Day two so far: I feel great mentally and physically. Physically I am a little sore, but that is to be expected and thus is a good soreness. :) Got up and did some sun salutations (at least as close to it as I could remember). I am actually shipper and in a good mood this morning. First time in a while I have not been grumpy by the time I got to work.

Glad the morning routine is already having an effect!

And great job with the strength workout... I know how you feel, I'm just getting back into myself, and it's frustrating not being able to do more! But we'll get there :)

But we'll get there :)

Yes we will! I know we can do it. :encouragement:

 

Today has gone well. I have eaten very well today, and have been in a good mood all day. Despite having a song stuck in my head, and every time it is finally gone it comes on the radio again. Ugh! Oh well. It is a good song. Anywho...I got my hair cut tonight and I changed my style and I am in love. Lots of smiling and positive energy today. I plan on some reflection time just before bed. No exercise today. My work day did not present any opportunity to move and now that I am home I have a headache so would rather rest.

 

Challenge Reward:

The hair cut led me to schedule an appointment for a redo coloring. Which led me to the idea of changing my color now that I have a new cut. So in four weeks I get my hair dyed and I think I will do something a little different. Just in time for Easter and spring! Currently my hair is dyed red brown and I am thinking of changing it to red copper with blonde highlights and red accents or just adding highlights/accents to my red brown. Either way this is my incentive to keep the challenge on the right foot. The better I do the more I can get done. Opinions welcome. :)

 

no progress= only red brown

okay progress= dye with basic single highlights

good progress= what ever the hell I want!

 

Technically I will get my reward before the challenge is over (my appointment is 3/21). But I will not get a separate reward at the end...unless my clothes are too big. :D

Got in all my steps yesterday, but did not get any meditation time. I fell asleep. :redface-new: . This morning I over slept so did not get my stretching done (mourning ritual). But overall so far this week I am staying upbeat and positive. I just wish I could convince my husband to do the same. He is so grouchy! lol.

 

Calorie intake so far this week:

Monday  1315

Tuesday  1144 *too low but just wasn't hungry

Wednesday 1251 *still a little low but again not hungry

I too met my steps goal, but failed to meditate yesterday... Let's nail both today, eh?

That is the plan. Although tonight it means walking in the mall while my daughter is in tumbling. The mall is sort of small so I will be doing a lot of laps. :(

 

One other thought for today. I have another motivation...I am so tired of going to WeightWatchers and seeing the same numbers. I have been yo-yoing for months, since the beginning of November to be exact. So the mission is to stop the yo-yo and start a slow descent.

To get there I need to keep up with my goals mostly...but I also need to make sure I have meal plans for Saturdays and Sundays. For some reason I am very bad about not planning weekends. I plan M-F perfectly, but weekends are a mess. So all progress made M-F is undone on Sat and Sun. Thus the yo-yoing.

Recognizing the problem is half the battle right!

 

Lets get is done!

Great first week! I hope you kill it this weekend. The morning routine really sounds like it works for you. It will take some time to really make it a solid habit, but I think it will really be worth it. Maybe your husband will eventually be inspired, or maybe he'll come up with a different idea that works for him. Here's hoping :-)

 

Love the idea of changing up the hair. Have you gotten any ideas from the stylist? I ask because I've tried a couple times to get red highlights put in and two different stylists tell me it would be a bad idea for my skin/hair tones. Might be worth telling the stylist you are thinking about changing your color and asking for ideas.

I am updating the tally for Friday and Saturday.  Both days went pretty well. I went out to a casino with my mom today and still ate healthy. I felt great about that. I also managed to get my steps in both days. I was really grumpy at work Friday so I will not award a point for "no complaining" for that day.

 

Calorie intake so far this week:

Monday  1315

Tuesday  1144 *too low but just wasn't hungry

Wednesday 1251 *still a little low but again not hungry

Thursday 1295

Friday 1422

Saturday 1241

Have you gotten any ideas from the stylist?

This is great advice. I have been seeing the same stylist for many years. She has seen me as a mostly blonde, brunette, and now a red-brown. She is always helpful and willing to help me out. Although I must say she is more adventurous then I. She is pushing 50 and still experiments with her hair. Last time I saw her it was purple. But I have seen with stripes of different colors (blue, green, bright red, purple.) and I have also seen her shave parts of it and cut stars into it. LOL. I am certainly not that brave. In my opinion I pull the red-brown off fairly well. I think it is my green eyes. They go well together. Last time I did anything with blonde it worked well too. So we will see how they do together. Boy that ended up long winded...sorry :)

Week 1 Wrap up:

So I am overall pleased with this week. There is room for overall improvement, but nothing major went wrong. My good eating fell apart on Sunday afternoon. But I will admit this is the first week in a long time I have lasted that long without screwing up.  Based on calorie intake for the week I was successful 7 for 7, but I ate too many weight watchers points so I am docking a point off for that. Exercised 5 of 7 days...not bad. Saturday I had on healed boot. By Saturday night my feet and legs were sore. Sunday they were still sore and I played in the snow. Both things should count for exercise LOL! But Sunday I did not walk my steps or lift weights so no points earned. The only other things to note are...1) I need to work on getting in my morning stretching and 2) I need to make sure I meditate at night.

 

Now it is confession time: I through out the week would grab a handful of Cheese-its or a small piece of chocolate and not track it. This needs to stop. Those "sneaked" snacks all add up. So I will resist the urge from now on.

 

Weight Tracking

My starting weight (Starting weight = 176.8lbs) was recorded on 2/19 several days before the challenge started, by Monday the 23rd my weight was at 181.2lbs. I had assumed at the tie this was mostly water weight, but that was not quite true. Some water weight yes but not as much as I had hoped. So I will take my true starting weight to be 181.2lbs

 

Start (Feb 23rd) 181.2

Week 1 (March 2nd) 179.2lbs (-2lbs)

 

Calorie intake this week:

Monday  1315

Tuesday  1144 *too low but just wasn't hungry

Wednesday 1251 *still a little low but again not hungry

Thursday 1295

Friday 1422

Saturday 1241

Sunday 2048

Total weight watchers points eaten = 72 *this over due to lunch at dairy queen.

The red-brown looks good in your picture for sure. I've read that one way to get good highlights is to aim for the color your hair was when you were a little kid.

Thank you. I have not heard that before, but it makes sense. I will keep that in mind.

Week 2 Day 1:

It was a good day! Ate clean ... no cheats! Morning stretching and daily step count accomplished. My daughter (3yrs old) tried to do sun salutations with me. So cute. :) Fell asleep at 8:30pm without meditating, but woke at 9:30 and laid and reflected before falling back asleep. So I am counting this goal as complete too.

Week 2 Day 2:

It was a great day! Ate clean ... no cheats again! Morning stretching accomplished. Did not get any activity in, but I did a lot of standing in the kitchen. I didn't actually sit down until 7:30, besides a few minutes to eat dinner. Which I made from scratch and was so impressed with how it turned out (and myself for getting it done). I made potato wedges in the oven with just a light basting of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. I also made oatmeal (oats) crusted oven baked chicken tenders. So good and a much healthier alternative. My daughter enjoyed them and my husband inhaled his dinner. So a success all around. (A coworker asked what other veggie I made!...ummm aren't potatoes enough? LOL)

Week 2 Day 3:

Not too bad of a day. Everything was under control. I have a coworker who likes to surround himself in drama and complains about almost everything. Yesterday was one of those days where all he did was walk around and grumble so I put on my headphones and drowned out his voice. I stayed positive all day. For my work out I am counting my work "chore" for the day. We have to use filtered de-ionized water on our equipment and it was my turn to filter water. I filtered 31 2L bottles worth of water. Which means between carrying the water to the filters, filling the bottles, and moving the filled bottles twice I moved an equivalent weight of 818lbs of water not counting the glass bottle weight. Upper body work out for sure.  Food Cheats=NONE! Did not meditate last night and I should have. I did try to at 1:30am after putting my daughter back to bed but I had trouble turning off all the noise in my head.

Off plan foods are allowed as long as the weight watchers points are tracked and the weekly total does not exceed 49. (But the lower this number stays the better.) 9/42

(2) walk 10,500 steps 5 days per week (cardio) with body weight/free weight work out 2x/week 5/30; 2/14
