A three week training block and a week to taper is a fair amount of time, but it'll go fast. You've been putting in the work, I think you're more ready than your brain is ready to admit. Headspace is the hardest thing to train.

Nice job getting everything in :) I think you should totally reward yourself with that matching tank (unless that already came with the underoos? I can't quite tell from your post.  Either way that's AWESOME.  I love nerdtastic undergarmets.)

 

It was a complete set.  So. Amazing.   I did, however, reward my self with another NF tank to be worn at my 5K at the end of the month.  I wanted to represent but I have a Tshirt and another tank.  I don't want to run in a Tshirt; it will be too hot.  And the tank I have is hard to see the NF logo on it.  It's the dark grey tank with NF written on it in red.  it doesn't stand out.  So I bought the pink tank.  Hopefully it arrives before the race.

I'll post my regularly scheduled week 1 recap once I am home and have access to my spreadsheet and can get it reposted.  In the meantime, here is how I did with my planned activities....  

 

Week 1 Itinerary Progress

 

Just so this is recorded.... here is my plan for the week

 

Monday - strength workout.  I've decided on this Darebee workout in addition to the PT exercises.  I don't have much time though since we have scouts tonight and I am teaching a merit badge tonight and I'm not really prepared.   DONE

 

Tuesday - go for a run  NOT DONE but SUBBED alternate cardio

 

Wed - Strength workout at home.  Darebee workout TBD  I no longer remember what I did Tuesday.... 

 

Thurs - boxing cardio class at the gym.  It will be my strength workout for the week and will take care of the Ranger mini for the week   DONE

 

Fri - a run in the morning, work half a day, and then back in the car for another drive.  DONE

 

Saturday - I must fit a run into this too.  I can go for a run with my sister who will be running her first 5K with me in late August.  Did missing strength, moved run to Sunday

 

Sunday - rest day and driving day.  And hopefully not repeating yesterday.  Actually RUN DONE

Me too.  If I leave it up to chance I won't get all the workouts in that I want to for my goals.  But it would help if I remembered to cross it off as I go.  Now I can't exactly remember each day.

Weekend Update

 

Saturday was the one full day with family.  I did my workout in the morning and my PT exercises.  My sister recently had gastric bypass surgery so there were some pretty decent food choices.  We spent the afternoon with some little kid activities and a quick 20 minute train ride.  It was decided to eat out and we had to go to a place that everyone liked.  We ended up at a place with mostly burgers and a pizza buffet.  I honestly couldn't decide and neither was a great option.  So my son got an amazing burger but had to let me have a few bites - and I got to skip the fries.  I got the buffet but slipped him a few slices.  I also had access to a ceasar salad so I loaded up with that.  I had more calories than I normally would have had but I did pretty well and still ended the day with a deficit. 

 

Sunday I had only a quest bar and some milk for breakfast because I was meeting a rebel for lunch.  I did go for a run first too.   That was a very good decision because lunch was at a buffet place that had an amazing brunch buffet.  I loaded up on eggs, bacon, and sausage and some fruit.  I definitely over ate and ended up with at least half of my daily calories on that meal but it was almost all protein.  According to MFP, after that meal my carbs were only at 11%.  I made up for it at dinner though.  Qbert and I (my son) had trouble picking out a place on the road for dinner and we were going to grab food at this particular truck stop but we couldn't find it.  We ended up at Denny's.  Meh.  But they have all the calories on their menu which was very helpful.  I order a burger and some hashbrowns, logged it on MFP and then ate only half to keep a deficit.  Overall, not bad.  

 

I am quite happy that I managed an other driving trip and maintained a deficit for the entire week.

Week 1 Recap

 

Goal 1: Find the Tardis For this challenge I will train for the 5K three times a week.  I got 83% on this but according to the goal I am to train for the 5K 3 times.  That half point was technically training for 5K but it wasn't an actual run.  A-

 

Goal 2: Sonic Screwdriver For this challenge my goal is to train 17 times.  I would like to workout 3 times a week but I'll allow one free pass. 3x = 100%. A+

 

Goal 3: CICO

3a: Maintain a calorie deficit Deficit all 7 days. A

3b: I would like to keep my calories from carbs around 30-35%.  Average carbs 28%. A+

 

Total weight lost this week = 0.2  Total deficit 6307.  Something is not adding up but I'll continue at least another week for more data.. because data. 

 

Life Quest: Money, Moola, clams, bucks, greenbacks, loot. Nothing saved yet.  Actually, I spent too much money travelling. Fail.

The question is, what does Lord Shello think of the underoos? ;)

 

I'm stealing the idea of posting an itinerary, it'll help keep me accountable for my consistency.

 

Steal away...      And LordShello definitely approves.  I think I need to find him some Iron Man underoos...  Or maybe Batman.

 

I like that you give yourself alternative workouts on days where the planned one doesn't work out. That way you're still challenging yourself! I also like family bike ride day! We do that sometimes in our family too. Its' pretty fun :)

 

Having the calorie in and out is really helpful.  Even when I don't quite get to my scheduled workout or if it's a rest day, I need to keep my calories out high enough to maintain a deficit.

I think you did really well with your choices on the road. Eating when travelling is super hard and I think you should look at situations like this not how often you picked the best choice but how often you didn't pick the really bad choice that you truly wanted. Well done on all your A's for week one, I'm sure the money goal will sort itself out over the rest of the challenge.

I'm not really bent out of shape from this trip.  I think I did so much better than the weekend before.  I was a little disappointed to not lose any weight on the scale but I could feel the difference.  It was tough though!  Which makes it that much more rewarding.

I know.  It's tough to log all that stuff made by other people.  I stuck with the easy stuff but I didn't keep close tabs on amounts so I did a lot of guessing.

So I completed the Ranger mini yesterday.  I had to run for 10 min continuously. I did make it so now I'll have to make sure I push myself to do that all the time.  I was thinking that would help me in the 5K but it actually slowed down my time.  I just run slower and then take a longer walking break in the middle.  I think from now until the race I'll push myself to run that 10 minutes, no matter the speed, and then try to run a 2nd 10 minutes on the way back.  Hopefully the speed will just take care of itself as I get used to it.   ??  We'll see.

I feel like we were all just recently congratulating you on running for over 2 or 3 minutes straight.  This is so epic!!

 

Thanks!  I did the 10 minutes once last challenge but I haven't been able to duplicate it.  Yesterday's run proves that it's all a mental game.

Wait, you went to Denny's and didn't get pancakes? ;)

 

True fact.  Actually I had it narrowed down to the Invisible Woman breakfast Slam (blueberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns) or the build your own burger.  The calories from the burger fit into MFP better.  

 

More evidence that the Doodly theory actually works. . .  unlimited gif exposure to pancakes lessens their hold on us.

Ab Cramp?!  WTH is that?  It's a thing!  I swear it.  And it sucks.  I could do no more sit ups... I did some yoga stretchy stuff instead.  Holy moly.  

 

I'm also planning on taking the dog for a walk tonight to up the calories burned.

Wow ten minutes of continuous running! You are amazing! Love seeing you find things that work for you based on the situations you're in, it's so awesome and it means you're truly making a life style change and not letting the lack of a "perfect" situation dictate your results; you're flexible enough to go with the flow and make it work! Keep on conquering Shello!

Congrats for the run, Shello! What an accomplishment, I'm really happy for you :) And that Ripley workout looks super hard O__o Respect!! Despite the ab cramp. That sounds like something on a French restaurant menu!
