Airlia joins Nerdwarts


Airlia

Recommended Posts

I love the mini-challenge this round, so embracing it in full!  I've also put on a few pounds, so I'm going to do some weight wizardry and get the scale back down where it should be.  I know the biggest cause for this is my sugar consumption, especially candy.  I know I need to cut WAY back and get that addiction under control.  Admitting it is a big step, but despite knowing this, I'm still unwilling to cut it out.  I'm going to try simply reducing but even that my entire being is rebelling against.  But that's why it's a "challenge" and not an "accomplishment" (yet).  So here goes.....

Epic Health Quest:
Maintain body weight between 117-123lbs while reducing fat, gaining muscle, and becoming passionate about fitness. I'm pushing the top end of this right now:

Starting Stats
Avg Wt for previous week - 121.6
Actual starting wt - 122.8
Fat - 28.7% (35.2 lbs)
Muscle - 29.2% (35.8 lbs)
Measurements (bust, waist, hips) 34, 27, 35

Ending Stats (if I end under at or under 123lbs=CHA1)
Avg Wt for previous week -
Actual starting wt -
Fat -
Muscle -
Measurements (bust, waist, hips)

Good day so far. I'll post my total reps and sets later, but after a good workout this morning I went outside and pulled 50 t-posts out of the ground. Being a lightweight can be a disadvantage for some activities - like when my entire body weight won't budge the lever that is suppose to lift the t-post.

IMG_2621b_zps3qn6kanq.jpg

I'm kneeling on the lever of the t-post puller - hard to tell in the picture but I'm about 2.5-3 feet off the ground. I even stood on it and bounced a bit. After taking this picture my daughter added her weight to the lever and after 10 minutes or so of both of us bouncing on it the post finally came out of the ground. Most of them came out *relatively* easily, but still - if you are looking for a really good compound workout, this will do it. Every muscle in my body feels like it's been taken to the brink. Nice!!

Found you :)

 

Love how you made this full theme and wishing you all the best for it!

Reducing sugar instead of cutting sounds like a good strategy and also see what you would like to treat yourself with instead...? There are many healthy yummy things that make it easier to switch.

 

Yay on conquering those t-posts! That must have been quite a workout in itself!!

Removing the t-posts was a major workout, but I feel great and it's good to finally have it done. On the sugar thing - you are right about being more selective. I'm thinking a lot more about how I want to "spend" my calories - both in terms of being very picky about my one serving of sugar-based food per day, and in relation to "getting the most healthful BANG from the calories I'm eating all through the day. Focusing more on using food as a tool rather than just filling my body with "junk" that tantalizes my tastebuds but plays havoc on my fitness goals.

Hey Lucky Fire - I've been slacking on posting all week - the party was great and bowling is going well. I bowled a 148 on Sunday and a 135 on Tuesday and beat my husband both times! - his average is 150ish, but he bowled especially poorly those games. It was fun. :)

So, I started the week working hard, but slacked off the last couple of days. Still overall I didn't completely fail. My workouts have been good overall and still seeing progress in Nerdwarts School. Between several graduation parties and other such activities, sugar has been WAAAY too high. Need to get that back on track. I made some slight modifications to how I score the herbology and muggle arts quests, and finally added my stat points awards for all my quests. Here are my weekly summaries:

Weekly status:

Week 1 Summary - Grade: A

Q1 Study hard and improve my Nerdwarts AMRAP scores (Strength) -- 5/4dw - A

Q3b Herbology (vegies) - goal: 3/3dw - A

LQ1 Muggle Arts - 3/2dw - P

Week 2 Summary - Grade: C+

Q1 Study hard and improve my Nerdwarts AMRAP scores (Strength) -- 3/4 - B

Q2 Improve my Quidditch game with better stamina (Cardio) - 3/4 - B

Q3a Herbology (Sugar) - goal: goal: 2/5dw - C

Q3b Herbology (vegies) - goal: 2/3dw - B

LQ1 Muggle Arts - 2/2dw - P

Epic Quest: Avg weight - 124 :(

My weight is creeping up. How much is water weight from heat &/or muscle gain as opposed to fat gain from poor eating choices is hard to say. I suspect some of each of those. Still, I really want to get this under control before it gets too daunting. Problem is that "want" is not translating to "resolve" and "appropriate choices" the past week. I started to track again in MyFitnessPall for a few days last week, then didn't track Th & F. I know that really helps me stay on track and make better choices so added my food and exercise for today, but that's only breakfast. It's late afternoon and evening that is going badly - I get the "munchies" / sweet tooth monster and eat way too much sugar and snacks. My plan is to save enough calories for 1 dessert, then if I still feel I need to snack, have smartpop popcorn or something similar.
