LadyShello Rucks Like a Girl

And so it begins again....

 

The boring backstory

Spoiler

I found NF in the summer of 2014.  I was very overweight and found most day to day tasks difficult.  I spent the rest of 2014 going back it time as a Time Lord companion, losing 80 pounds along the way. I never quite made it back all the way to my goal but the point of the journey was to find the real me and take my life back.  Little did I know at the time that I was really Wonder Woman, under a spell that turned me into an ogre.  I’m still in the process of breaking the spell by defeating villains that I confront on my new journey.  Since then I’ve gotten stronger and more active.  I started by just walking 1 mile a day and have since run a 5K, taken up rucking, lifting, and Shovelglove and just plain old trying to be as awesome as possible.

 

Main Over-arching Goal: My goal is still to lose bodyfat and gain strength.  I still haven't been to Onederland but my ultimate goal is somewhere over that rainbow. 

Main goal for this challenge: The main goal for this challenge is to prepare for the GoRuck next month.  I also have no time to waste this summer so I want to enjoy every minute of it. 

 

I really liked the structure of my last challenge.  I'll continue tracking 6 core goals that all work together for success though each one may be tracked a little differently.  I've mapped out the challenge and out of the 33 days (since my challenge starts today) I am travelling for 11 of them.  I do like the idea of strictly tracking my compliance on the core goals regardless of what life is going on but I did modify them this time to make sure that my goals match my actual expectations.  In addition to the travel schedule, I also realized last challenge that I need a day off.  My current standard rest day is on Monday only because I am so busy that I don't usually have time to get a workout in.  Well then I don't really have time to rest and enjoy my time either.  I made a list last challenge consisting of how I want to spend the summer and I need to have time to get to those activities.  So I've scheduled in another rest day that could very well end up being a pretty active day but I'll be free to spend quality time with the family instead of putting the gym before them... the same with my summer hobbies.

Ruck Like a (Badass) Girl (STA)

I need to ruck more, a lot more.  I've had side goals for the past several challenges to do Ruck WODs and I've only done 1.  Now it is a necessity.  I've decided to get 2 rucks in a week at minimum.  No distance requirements but I'll be keeping track and trying to increase the distance or work on speed.  I find it really difficult to hit the 15 min mile benchmark without doing a bit of running.  The plan:

  • Ruck 2x week.  Any distance, increase speed each time,  Each ruck counts as 1 pt
  • 4 Rucks with coupon (carrying a tire).  This can either be part of the 2 weekly rucks or in addition. Each ruck with coupon counts as 1.5 pts
  • 4 Ruck WODs.  I've got one scheduled with my personal trainer already.  I'll be incorporating more into the lift goal below.  
  • 1 Long distance ruck.  I'm not sure what that long distance is.  At least 5K but I'm thinking more like a couple hours.  Long ruck counts as 2pts

 

Lift (STR)

I want to maintain my 3 lifting days per week.  The problem is the travel days cover a lot of lift days. There are 14 lift days scheduled.  6 of them are travel days.  I may be able to get some lifting in before I go or as I return but I can't say that now.  Since it's much easier to get a ruck in while travelling I can substitute a Ruck WOD for any lift day on travel days only.  This gives me more than ample opportunity to hit the goal for Ruck WODs and maintain my strength schedule.  Each lift day or RuckWOD substitution counts as 1pt

 

Demolish (WIS)

The goal is to accomplish 3 productive tasks each day, travel days excluded.  I made some improvements last challenge but still procrastinated tasks I don't like to do or are out of the ordinary.  This time I will make a couple of changes.  I will not commit to 3 tasks at the start of each day but rather be mindful of tasks and ensure I get 3 of them done by the end of the day. In addition, I will keep a bullet journal style to do list in my Passion Planner.  Any tasks that sits in the back of my mind taunting me will get written on the list.  I will also include a list of Flylady tasks for the week.  Each day, as I am finding things to do I should consult the lists and see if I can at least accomplish 1 thing from each list.  So the 3 daily tasks will loosely consist of 1 cleaning task, 1 long term To do task, and 1 daily task.  I say loosely as I am not required to do any of the items on the list.  But at the end of each week, I will have to migrate any leftover tasks to the following week's tasks. tsk tsk.   Each day with 3 tasks accomplished counts as 1 pt. Occasionally partial credit awarded. 

 

Sleep (DEX)

Continue working on getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night.  This counts for all days, travel or not. 1pt per night with at least 7 hours

 

Macros (CON)

Meet MFP macros each day.  This includes travel days.  No variance days are worked in but I am not necessarily expecting 100% on this goal.  But 90% would be really nice. 1 point for staying within calorie goal,  .5 points for staying within +10% of calorie goal.  

 

Leisure & Enrichment (CHA)

I want to continue to make this a priority over the summer.  I have a tendency to waste the summers away and I want to enjoy the time and make memories with the kids.  The goal is to set aside time each day to do something leisurely (that's not multitasking with a chore and not procrastinating a chore either).  Things that count are quality time with the hubby or kids, spending time at the pool at the gym, going to a movie, watching a movie at home, knitting, quilting, sitting in the sun, reading...  I do want to make a distinction from mindlessly watching TV before bed or from actually being lazy.  Sometimes drawing the line is difficult for me.  I want to enrich my life, not waste it away.  Travel days are excluded since leisure will be built in. 1 point per day.

The yellow days indicate travel days. I've maintained the same workout schedule for those days but the goals are scaled.  The extra ruck points aren't scheduled so they are included in the challenge goals rather than the weekly scores.  I'm sure it will all work out. ;)

Following. What an organised challenge. I hope you get the leisure and 'seize the summer' activities in,I know how it feels when the kids are suddenly going back to school already.

"They're coming to get you Barbara!"

 

Yes!  I spend a good portion of the year looking forward to summer, then blink and it's only 2 weeks from school starting.  Not this summer!  Seize the Summer is perfect.  I might steal that.

Week 0 Day 1

Spreadsheet updated

Ruck: Rest day... that and I can barely walk due to DOMS from Sundays leg day. 

Lift: Again, no.  All the rest!

Demolish Tasks: This went well.  I found a convenient location for a passport photo (from To Do list), cleaned the microwave (from FlyLady list), and printed some recipes to bring to the scout meeting (To Do list), and spent a little time on the scout books as well.   

Sleep: Just barely.  Had I got up when I usually do I would have been 10 minutes shy of 7 hours.  I was quite tired still so I snoozed in about 15 minutes.. 

Eat Well (Macros): 1587/1700; 98/129 carbs/protein.  I forgot that my calorie goal was a little higher yesterday since it was a recovery day.  But I wasn't really craving anything.  I could have used more freggies though.  

Leisure & Enrichment: There was little time after working late and then getting ready for scouts.  I attempted to relax and watch part of a movie while I printed those recipes but I was constantly interrupted.  I awarded 1/2 point for effort.

Maybe I missed it, going anywhere cool that needs the passport or just updating to have it in case?

 

I'm doing the GoRuck in Winnipeg in July.  I go to Winnipeg a lot already since I have family there but I've been skating by on an expired passport for too long and they are getting more and more strict.  I don't want to take any chances.
