Rise of the Morning Pixie


PixieKitten

Recommended Posts

Did a silly and weighed myself. Apparently, getting more sleep, eating more calories than I burn, and upping my strength workout makes me lose weight?! Gone from 50.2 butt naked to 49.8 dressed for work, both taken around the same time.

 

WHY.

Sleeping pills!  Yeaaaah.  I was so tired yesterday.  I made my post and just was out...so maybe I don't need pills...but usually have a hard time getting proper sleep.  lol  I should also maybe take vitamins....do Flintstones daily vitamins count???

 

And you have way more interesting exercise than me... whoa  :chargrined:

Yes, Flintstones count. My hubby and I have been taking them along with the kids for years. Dr. said they're just fine. Plus, grown up vitamins make me uber queasy.

In the last week I've lost 1kg. I'm not impressed, and can only console myself with the hopefully not-a-lie that it's fat burning away quicker than the muscle is gaining, and that it will start increasing again once the routine has become more established in my system.

Pixie took a little break from the forums because she wasn't feeling too good.

Pixie cannot confirm if she is back to everyday posting, but feels she should post her stats as it is now the end of week two.

Got a new badge on my fitbit- 20,000 steps in one day. Been after that one for a while but I guess I've been lazy!

 

Seriously. The data. The graphs, the charts... Fitbit is so perfect for me. I love looking at these things. It certainly makes my poor eating habits very clear;

Seriously, If I want to do this right, light green should ALWAYS be above dark green!! ¬_¬

Gonna make the dog sleep downstairs tonight, see if that makes a difference to my usual 20+ times being restless at night!

Sleep is up 3%. Maybe it is best if Hutch sleeps downstairs!

 

Only one week of the challenge left! I'm getting all my stuff prepared for the next one this week. Get ready for the most well-thought out introductory post ever on the 1st of Feb!

Ok, so, challenge over!

 

When I calculated what score I was aiming for, I forgot that the challenge ended on the 29th, so those numbers are actually invalid. The score I'm actually loking for is 156 at the highest.

 

I achieved.... *goes back and counts* 148. That's less than ten points off in 4 weeks, so I'm counting that as a win.

 

 

LEVEL UP!

 

I did actually write some notes about this challenge in my notebook.. Lemmie type 'em out.

 

 

  • Finding a reason to get up at 6:30am, when the world is still dark and cold and the bed is so comfy was challenging. Which I guess is why it's called a challenge.

 

  • I'm so, so very proud of Queenie actually letting me clip her, when no one thouht I'd be able to do it. We only managed a small part and we've had to stop, but it had nothing to do with her behaviour and I'm so proud of her.

 

  • Workouts were tough but manageable to the point that I felt as though I should have been pushing harder. But I know I have a habit of pushing too hard and giving up, so while I started off easy, I did make progressions into slowly making them tougher and I kept at it the whole time. I might actually feel just that little bit stronger too.

 

  • Eating more calories than I burned took the most effort f all for me. Eating is such a chore by itself, but then making sure I had enough food in the house, bought healthy, filling things, kept a budget to make sure I could afford it, and then actually prepping and cooking and eating and washing up and tracking it down? Exhausting.

 

  • Fitbit = <3. There's just no way I could have kept on track the way I did without it. I've struggled in the past with recording my progress and I think this has been the helping hand I've needed. Physically seeing my stats in colourful charts, graphs and displays is not only fun to look at, but gives me a number, a time, a goal to aim toward the next day. Got a badge for 15000 steps today? Next badge is 20000? I bet I could do that tomorrow. My love for this program will never be put adequately into words.

 

  • Doing the same Yoga dvd four times a week felt repetetive, excessive, and frankly got really boring, even though I love that DVD. For this next challenge I plan to switch out 3 of 4 with Pilates and Exercise Ball workouts.

 

  • I feel a bit disappointed with myself that I didn't have any adventures this month. I felt like I was too focussed on my goals to just get out and do something random. So I'll make an effort to throw some unplanned adventures in next challenge.

 

For my next challenge, I'm going to attempt something I've never been able to do before. It's number 6 in my signature. I hope to see you there! Bring on February!
