Allergies are horrible. Colds are worse and I am hoping for you it's not that, but I've found that while strength training is a bad idea when these things hit, whatever cardio you can tolerate might help.

 

You worked through a bunch of off-the-plan stuff in your last challenge, this is just a speed bump.

Thanks! If I'm not back up to speed Wednesday for lifting then I'll do a run on the track- helping to avoid allergy probs.

Tuesday Week 1

 

Thanks all! I feel much better today. I think I'll be okay to go lifting tomorrow(!!!) and such. Today has been good on food, but mostly because I'm sorta low on food. Oops. Grocery shopping Friday. Ate all my fruit/veggies yesterday, and I'm working on today (probably having pearrots with dinner).

 

I tried making peanut butter apple overnight oats and I'm not sure if the cold or the peanut butter killed it. I was NOT a fan of the texture. 

 

So excited to be planning dinners and meals for when my boyfriend comes this weekend :) We're going to try to eat well and he's going to teach me a recipe that produces 1 week's worth of meals for ~$22. Will probably be posting in the campfire thread when I know the recipe!

Try using less peanut butter.  I don't know about the texture, but I have noticed that a little peanut butter goes a long way in overnight oats.  Somehow its flavor seems to be multiplied.  

 

You can also try heating them up in the morning.  I know, it totally goes against putting them in the fridge overnight, but toss it in the microwave for a spell, and you might like it better.

Both of those are good ideas, thanks

I have never tried overnight oats, so I may have to venture there during the winter! Also, meals that last for multiple days for $22? That is SOLID GOLD.

 

I make 5 days worth of work lunches for around $12-ish.  Chicken, rice, and veggies.  Takes about an hour to cook it all up and get it in the tupperware.  

 

Glad you're feeling better!  Lift all the things!

Wednesday Week 1

Thanks guys! I'm headed to the gym now :)

Also, I'm glad my challenge says most days for veggies because I didn't get one with dinner last night, it was a bit rough all around. BUT. I weighed in at almost my "stop tracking weight" number this morning and I'm supremely pleased. So overall not bad.

Thursday Week 1

Whoo! Yesterday ended up being pretty awesome. Today, while still awesome, may not be quite as awesome. I'm hoping to get out and go for a run but I'm not sure I'll have time (it would double as a workout and my speed feat) due to homework. I shall see.

I feel much better with allergies, have been keeping up with my fruits and veggies, and am super happy about all the things!

I'm also going to be doing cleaning things to prepare for my boyfriend coming to visit tomorrow :)

WOOT WOOT!  Glad to hear that everything went/is going well!

I feel like there might be a correlation here. I need to look into this for myself as well.   hmm......

Huh. Interesting thought. Though mine are also alleviated by two allergy medicines and a spoonful of local honey

The local honey is always a good idea b/c honey. Glad you're feeling better.

Friday Week 1

 

Almost done with the first week of this challenge!! Whoo! I achieved my speed feat yesterday for the mini challenge by going for a run to establish the baseline for my mile (11:59 min/mile). It also counts for one of my non-yoga, non-strength workouts. I ate well, and I'm having some clothing difficulties- all my stuff is getting too big! By the time Christmas comes, I'm gonna need new jeans :)

 

Ate more than my required fruits/veggies yesterday, today I'm on a path to do the same thing. I'm super excited- Recently I caught myself looking in the mirror and BEING PLEASED. I've NEVER been pleased to look in the mirror, even when I was rather tiny (thanks hormone surge), but now that I've worked so hard for what I have it means so much more. 

 

Also, this challenge is going to be my "Throw away the scale" challenge. Once I'm under 155 most of the time (so far I've weighed in at 155.8 twice) I'm hiding the scale and not weighing myself every day, which I do so that I can look at the general trend. Somehow that helped me get started- helped me not lose hope when things got slow! And I'm going to establish a day and time to do my measurements. 

 

Now if I can stay productive at work today enough to distract from the fact that MY BOYFRIEND IS GONNA VISIT THIS WEEKEND. I'm making us a yummy, healthy dinner tonight and prolly tomorrow night too, and it'll be nice to have a relaxing weekend with him where we have nothing planned aside from grocery shopping and maybe going to one of my school's football games.

Great going for the week!

 

I'll vouch for local honey helping allergies. Makes a huge difference in mine if I start taking a teaspoon a day at least a week or two before the triggering pollen starts floating around and continue through the season. So much better than the usual medications that mess with sleep and energy levels.

 

Have a awesome weekend!

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

~T. E. Lawrence

 

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands,

flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
