Mourgause's Medic Release


Mourgause

Recommended Posts

Back in the Rebellion again...

 

After a bumpy second half of 2015 and especially post holidays, I. Am. Ready! Respawn, Revive, Skill points reset to Zero.
I'm three months post abdominal surgery, which really knocked me out, but I'm hardly more out of shape than I was before I found NerdFitness a year ago (at least, that's the optimist talking). Either way, I'm taking this one slow and considering it my Level 1, figuring out what my limits are right now, before setting a solid goal (like, Plank for two minutes, run for two miles). I don't know what the end of this month is going to be, so my Goal is to...do stuff. Have a plan, and make the plan a habit.

 

 

 

Goal One - Get Hydrated

It's dry. It's cold. It's the perfect time to increase H2O.

1 Liter/day = C

1.5 Liters/day = B

2 Liters/day = A

 

Goal Two - Get Physical

Let's get.....oh. Wrong Generation.

BBWW - One whole rotation minimum

0/week = F

2/week = C

3/week = A

 

Goal Three - Get Tasty

I'm cheating and trying out Blue Apron this month/year to help with my grocery issues (not buying, not using, etc) and dinner conundrum. Lunches and weekends are areas that need improvement desperately. Both my wallet and my gut will thank me.

4-7 fast food meals/week = F

2-3 fast food meals/week = C

0-1 fast food meals/week = A

 

Life Goal - Keep It Clean

I am one person, in a small apartment, working banker hours. Every room should not look like I have a co-ed crashed at my place 24/7.

Clean/Empty Sink Each Night

7-14 days = F

15-21 days = C

21-28 days = A

Thank you, it's good to be back :D

 

 

This is my partial check in, since I started late.

 

Goal 1 - I've been doing great at drinking more water! That doesn't surprise me though, as long as I have a bottle next to me at work, I do ok. Getting to 2 liters has been a little harder. I'm averaging about 1.5, but I'll be getting a liter bottle when I get groceries this weekend, so that'll help.

 

Goal 2 - Haven't done a work out yet :( had a migraine all day yesterday, so today at LEAST one run through the bbww needs to happen. This is definitely going to be hardest for me, so... pushpushpush

 

Goal 3 - Pretty ok so far. Been doing sandwiches for lunch/dinner, but my first Blue Apron order comes in Saturday so can't wait to do better next week :D

 

Life goal - haven't cooked much yet so... Doing good! haha, no knives or plates sitting in the sink, but need to start putting everything...y'know...away.

Week of Jan 3

Goal 1 Get Hydrated

Grade - 2.4 ( C )

Still working up to the two liters per day and, except for the weekend, had a good run of 1.5 liters/day just at work. Buying a liter bottle today for work, and maybe another one to keep at home, to make things a little bit easier. Success for this goal was that I kept to just water and tea, no soda or alcohol. Woo!

 

Goal 2 Get Physical

Grade - 1.0 (F)

I don't know if that's entirely fair as I started late, but...excuses excuses. That one BBWW that I did was rough. I made it through alright, better than I remember my absolute first time, but when I went for a second rotation, my legs completely went out on me. I wasn't winded, but my muscles need to remember how to work. I also forgot how last time lunges used to kill my knees, so I'll need to find a way to adjust those. 

 

Goal 3 Get Tasty

Grade - 2.0 ( C )

All things considered, this isn't bad. There were two meals that were fast food - dinner on my migraine day, and lunch at work on a day we had new student orientation (so lots of running around campus to counteract any extra calories). I'm already prepared for this week with my Blue Apron box (have I mentioned enough that I got a blue apron subscription?) for dinners, and lunches for the first half of this week. 

 

Life Goal Keep it Clean

Grade - 5/28

Er...dunno how to grade this weekly based off of how I set the goal hah. But, doing pretty well, and I'm noticing how just having an empty sink makes my kitchen look that much better. FlyLady was really onto something haha

 

Week 1 Mini Challenge

 

Overall Grade: 1.8 (F)

 

 

Eh, that's why there's a bell curve.

This week is much much better - Helped along by my investment in a big ole liter water bottle. Yesterday alone I think I drank four liters? It's a good sign that I lost count.

 

I was also able to do more of the BBWW. Last night I got through it twice, and my legs aren't completely killing me today like they did last week. Other than working up to three rotations, I'm really trying to perfect/fix my form. One knee is just screaming at me when I start lunges and I'd hate to cut them out of the work out unless it turns out I just have bad knees. I know there's a lot of chatter on the forums about knees and squats/lunges, so I'll start reading up on them as well.

 

Cleaning was going great till last night, when I totally crashed on the couch right after dinner. Not happy about that, but adjusting to make sure it doesn't happen again.

 

Also need to have a better contingency plan for lunches at work. This week it was just a couple slices of pizza, but I'm still counting it as "fast food", since it was neither healthy nor good tasting (my coworkers have weird pizza topping tastes when left to their own devices).

 

I know this week won't be a failure, so I'm feeling much better :)

Week of Jan 10

 

Goal 1 Get Hydrated
Grade - 3.0 (B )

Not too shabby! This is infinitely helped by the reusable liter water bottle I got this week, straws definitely make it faster. Benefits: although it hasn't cleared my face or helped me lose weight, I can tell that I'm less bloated than I was over the holidays and it looks like I've lost weight, even though the scale tells me differently. 

 

Goal 2 Get Physical

Grade - 2.0 ( C) 

Picking up my game as far as working out. Still haven't managed three rotations, but mini-celebration is that I reached 10k steps the other day according to my new fitbit (!!). I've been averaging 8k during the work days (not bad either for an otherwise desk job), and I hit the 10k just by cleaning the apartment. If that's not motivation to clean more...

 

Goal 3 Get Tasty

Grade - 4.0 (A)

Woot! Just that one lunch with a couple slices of pizza, and doing really well with the dinners and left overs. This week coming is going to be my busiest at work (students back on campus and classes start Tuesday) so I don't know if my lunch plan I have in place will play out, but at least I have one. I made sure to get the boyfriend on board to help keep me on track this week, I know dinners after 10 hour days are hard, but sometimes I just need someone to tell me No out loud, no I can't just run through the drivethru on the way home. High hopes!

 

Life Goal Keep it Clean

Grade - 11/28

So far just a couple slip ups, but still going good. This little step is doing what I wanted it to - inspiring me to keep cleaning outside of the kitchen. In fact, I even (finally) took down my christmas tree the other day, even though it was still good-smelling (sigh). 

 

Week 2 Mini Challenge

 

Overall Grade: 3.0 (B )

 

Happy with this week :)

Week of Jan 17

 

Goal 1 Get Hydrated

Grade - 2.6 (C+)

I'm a little disappointed in myself with this. Granted, it was exceptionally busy at work, so I spent all day talking to customers and didn't have as much down time to, yknow, swallow. But I could've made up for it over the weekend, and I dropped the ball.

 

Goal 2 Get Physical

Grade - 0 (F)

That's right...no workouts :( not good

 

Goal 3 Get Tasty 

Grade - 4.0 (A)

I'm really surprised that this is still my most successful! I think Blue Apron is helping, knowing that I have food in the fridge to make, or leftovers to eat. I did have one meal that wasn't home made or well-chosen restaurant, and it was both from being worn out at the end of a very long day, and seriously not liking the the meal that I'd made the day before. Both taste and not expecting it to heat up well. Hey, if weight loss is 80% what you put in your mouth, I can at least check this off.

 

Life Goal Keep it Clean

Grade - 16/28

Slacking a ltle on this, but keeping up my mantra....

 

 

Overall Grade: 2.2 (C-)

 

Last week was going to be rough for a bunch of reasons, and except for working out, I can at least say it wasn't a complete failure...
