Meesa finds the basics (Heads and Shoulders, Knees and Toes) [Level 7]

 

So after all the things that happened through the last 2 challenges I have a new job. I am midway through my first week (which is in the challenge break week) and I want to start right to continue well. 2 things that are important to not is that I am starting a bit over again and that means a pretty decent pay cut until at least June; and although the hours are technically 830-5 it is expected that you work overtime to get your work done (as such they have a policy one Friday a month if you've worked ~15 minutes overtime every other day that month it is a half day). But I don't mind overtime if I actually have work to do. I am more about getting the work done. As such I'm having a bit of a reset.

 

In my last challenge I did pretty much everything I wanted but without having a proper schedule my eating was a bit all over the place and I was falling back into bad habits. Now I am hoping to start my new job with good habits so I can continue them. I will be focusing on 4 Areas Heads and Shoulder, Knees and Toes (my metaphor is a stretch but go with me)

 

  1. Heads: I will get my head screwed on straight and eating well to give me fuel and fire. I will be going with my same sort of eating plan for now
    Breakfast ~ 630
    Snack ~ 1045
    Lunch ~ 1300
    Snack ~ 1545
    Snack ~ 1800
    Dinner ~ 2000
  2. Shoulders: I will lose the weight I planned for in the last challenge to "Lessen the weight on my shoulders"... go with me on that line.
  3. Knees: I will go to the gym 3+ days a week (gym sessions can be replaced with a run if I really want to be outside; but not by a preplanned soccer game where I play in goals). I will continue working on both my Bodyweight Exercises and my Weights exercises. By the end of the challenge I will be able to get off my knees for 5 reps of push ups and/or make the elusive jump to a 50kg squat and as a bonus move up to the next level on my box jump (60cm).
  4. Toes: I will clock up at least 15km per week of cardio; this could be running, bike, rower, treadmill, eliptical, or soccer where I play on the pitch. I will not my including any kms clocked for just walking around even though my fitbit will. i really want to focus on actual cardio with intensity so I can start getting ready for the all the running my coach said we will do in pre-season in Jan (kill me now).

tl;dr

  1. Eat food at the right times
  2. Lose the next bunch of weight
  3. Hit the gym regularly
  4. Get some runs on the board (bad cricket reference).

Well its Sunday night and I have no idea why but I had a complete food breakdown this weekend for no reason and I'm disappointed in myself. I really need to recommit to the food part. So I really need to get my head around it.

 

So here's how I went:

  1. Eat food at the right times - Great during the week. Not so much on the weekend. So I will try to keep to it more.
  2. Lose the next bunch of weight -  I'll see tomorrow but I haven't begun to shift it yet.
  3. Hit the gym regularly -  After a few injuries I only made it twice.
  4. Get some runs on the board (bad cricket reference). - I got 10/15 Kms of cardio at the gym

I think my late week let me down and week 1 is a fail :(

 

Looking forward to a better week 2.

So Week 2 was kinda terrible. I feel off all my wagons and got injured.

 

Really good start to week 3 though. We won 25 nil on Sunday night; I finally started to get the hang of things at work on Monday and I managed to deadlift my own body weight for the first time. Feeling so much better and hoping to exploit it.

Ok so I stopped posting because most of my stuff was in my accountability group.

 

Not sure how I went on my specific goals.

  1. Eat food at the right times - i got better at this and have now signed up to a thing called hello fresh which is great.
  2. Lose the next bunch of weight - I decided not to weigh myself as I realised I was putting on muscle
  3. Hit the gym regularly - I did really well on this. I can now make the 60cm box jump; squat 55kg and deadlift my bodyweight (80kg). Next up the century to annoy one of the senior accountants at work
  4. Get some runs on the board (bad cricket reference). I did really well on my cardio challenge.
