[everanything] Round 3! Fight!

Recommended Posts

Main Quest: Lose 5% bodyweight.

 

Goal 1: Beginner Bodyweight Workout or Max Step Count 3/x week. +STR 2.7 and STA 2.7 possible, each day worth .3 stats.

 

Goal 2: Sugar Tracking. Having kicked my soda habit successfully, I still gravitate too often to sweets. I can't completely deprive myself, but I will seek out things with noted sugar content (ie don't go to the bake sales at work because nothing is measured) and set up portion-controlled servings of those. I did this last time, like making my own 100-cal packs of certain snacks, and it really helped. Natural sugars (yogurt, fruit, nsa juice) will not factor for this.

 

Like last time, I'll track this in my battle log, and set benchmarks. <25g A, <50g B, <75g C. I'll tally things each week and assign points from there. Ie As are .1 each day, Bs are .08, Cs are .06, so that it will add up right.

+4.2 CON possible.

 

Goal 3: Mind the clock. I am terrible about being late to work, and taking too long on my breaks. This goal has multiple steps, all with one common goal: timeliness. Get up at 0630. If necessary, ask Ifrit to drag me out of bed as he leaves for school. This ensures that I have time to eat and leave for work with time to spare. Tech off at 2130. Reading in bed is always ok. If I sleep enough, I won't snooze like mad. If I eat properly, I won't have snacks at work and take overly long breaks.

 

30 working days, scored by percentage. Each day above 97% will win stat points, approx .15 per day. 4.5 possible to WIS. 

 

LQ: 3 new books. It's not con season so I'm taking a month+ break from sewing. I have plenty of things to read now. Each book will add .3 to CHA.

 

Motivation: My self-image has plummeted lately, and I'm sick of it. The weight snuck up on me and I hate feeling pudgy and icky and like I have to hide in my clothes. I want to like how I look again. Also, I've hit a sort of 'fuck the haters' moment, and I'm sick of being judged for being less than perfect when it comes to cosplay.

Saturday was a bonus round of BBWW. There was time, and rather than indulge my bad mood, working with it and past it seemed to help. Let the grumpy fuel the workout, raaaarr.

 

That was also a chance to change things up. The first challenge was the first time to successfully do a push-up in my life. However, as a move, they don't do much for me, and seem to strain my shoulder. My core muscles need a lot more focus, so leg lifts it is! If two reps of 10 per workout (potentially up to three by end of challenge) continue to kick my ass this much, after 18 sets, there should be some decent visible results.

 

My right index finger seems to be acting up from tendonitis. This makes it somewhat hard to lift a weight with full grip. This also meant that my mood has been sour the last three days, provoking me into buying a mocha today...thus ignoring my new 'no can coffee' rule. It just slipped my mind. But! Tomorrow is a new day for that.

Mini: Get S.M.A.R.T.!

 

Specific. I have days set aside for working out. I have benchmarks for my diet goals. I know I need to aim for an above average score at work.

 

Measurable. Keeping an eye on sugar consumption will be noticeable day by day. The more that I progress in my workouts, the stronger I know I'm getting, because I can push myself further each time.

 

Attainable. The job one simply has to be, because I like being gainfully employed. I have the time and energy available to workout when planned.

 

Realistic. I did adjust my weight-loss goal down to 5%. That's approximately 9.75 pounds, which over 6 weeks may still be optimistic, but far less loftly than 10%.

 

Trackable. Yep! Work does part of the numbers for me. I can seek out portion-controlled sweets or set up my own to monitor my sugar intake. I use my pocket calendar to tick off days that I workout.

 

+1 CHA!

I've been a bit lax about tracking my daily goals. I got sick yet again from a convention, which put me off working out for a time. That said, I'm still trying to eat healthy, stay active, and be diligent about work.
