ElvenEngineer Eats, Sleeps, and Lifts


elvenengineer

Recommended Posts

Starting Stats: I'm a female engineer in graduate school. My weight fluctuates between 130-135#. That's kinda it. Still doing StrongLifts :) gotta max out those #n00bgainz


No theme - just random gifs


 


Struggling with some sleep issues, but It'll be fine.

This is basically the same as my last challenge.... so

For exercising purposes, since it's basically my graduating semester with a thesis defense and all, I'm going to be nice about workout goals and aim for 5 workouts a week. Ideally, this will be 3 lifting sessions and 2 yoga sessions.  If it's an exhausting week or life happens, five yoga sessions is acceptable. [5 lifting session not that much. Sorry Br0din!]


Goal 1: 5 workouts a week -


I'd also like at least one 'cardio' day per week (not included in the 5), this will be defined as a single event that involves me walking/running/biking 2+ miles (Walking at work during lunch counts, but I usually only go one mile. Time to step it up!)


I have a 5k March 5th, so that takes care of this week!

Mobility hurts. Do mobility for a minimum of 5 minutes at least 5/7 days of the week. This is partly because I'm struggling a lot with the front rack position for both front squats and power cleans. Mobility helps, but I need to make it a goal or I'll forget!


Goal 2: 5 mobility sessions per week, greater or equal to 5 minutes each. Massages count.

Fuel is also difficult. I'm instituting a protein minimum of 75g 80g every day[that I track, still aiming for 5 days a week with that], and for each day I go over 100g I get a point. ! may come up with some rewards for different point values (like new protein powders maybe?) - totally forgot about the point thing last time. Maybe this time?


Goal 3: Protein @80g 5/7 days

School is difficult right now. I need to make it habit to work on school stuff for 30 minutes a day. Since master's thesis is happening, I will not run out of work until it is defended [late April]. No exceptions. If I have a migraine, I will take meds and maybe read some articles I have printed. This will NOT be a weekly total kind of goal, since I have been in the habit of pushing stuff back until I have a day off, then on my day off I get a migraine, then I am mad and guilty and upset, and nothing gets done. 40 minutes a day. Not that hard people!


LUYL Goal: 7/7 days with 40 minutes of schoolwork each

One day. I will have six pack abs. And on that very day, after I'm done snapping selfies in the bathroom mirror, I'm going to order a large pizza and just eat it like that. That will be my reward.

Fuck yeah, engineering! Fuck yeah, graduate school...

 

I've been there! During my last semester of school, it was a serious struggle to sit down and work for even half an hour, and I wasn't even exercising. Here you are working out and doing mobility work 5 days a week, and I was eating candy and chips at the convenience store for 2 meals a day and binging 90s TV shows. You're a baller. Keep kicking ass.

Sorry about the migraine! :( I hope the new glasses will help. :D

I know that when I change glasses (or need to change glasses I do get headaches). Btw I also find the new ones annoying on the first days while my eyes get used to them.

Yay for lifting!

At the gym now and feeling better already!
