Last challenge I tried to do some different things with my weekly calorie goals. Tbh, I haven’t taken those end of challenge measurements yet so I guess I don’t realllllly know if it worked but it doesn’t feel like it did. I swear I will be taking those asap*. In any case, I’m finally going to give in to doing different calorie numbers per day depending on my level of activity. Oh, I’m still trying to drop body fat % for anyone who is new to my threads.

 

I am also trying to be okay with my body as it is. things like walking around the house in just a sports bra and shorts and catching myself if I’m getting down on body image. I have fluff and will probably always have fluff. I am 70# lighter than I was 6 years ago. It’s a two way street and I’d like my mind to meet my body in the middle, please. Maybe lose just a little of the fluff but still love the fluff that’s left? That works right?

 

Well, here are the goals!

 

Quest 1

*calorie goals:

between 1400 and 1500 on days I don’t lift or cardio

between 1600 and 1700 on days I lift or cardio

on days I’m on vaca (june 30-july 4; july 8&9) I can have 2000 cals/day if I lift or cardio

*cook 7 weekend/day off breakfasts and 7 lunch/dinner meals throughout the challenges

*take measurements and progress photos for challenge end

 

 

Quest 2

Hahaha, everyone seems to have a foody challenge! One in all in, love it!

i know! it's such an important part of being healthy though and it's so different for each person. good thing we're nerds and like data and experimentation!

Week 0 recap thus far… I’ve been having trouble getting up to go to the gym at my usual time. Haven’t lifted since Thursday 6/2 :o 

 

W0D1 – Monday

 

took a mental health day off work. (did a Spartan on Saturday and then drank ~1 gallon of vodka)

 

did a 40m yoga session and replenished my food stores with good stuff. eggs, protein powder, spinach, chicken, broccoli, fruit, dark chocolate, clif bar, cod, more spinach, and a protein bar. Unfortunately, this would not pass muster with my new goals of 1400-1500cals on recovery days.

 

*cals 1,817/1,500

CHO/FAT/PRO = 166/63/181

 

W0D2 – Tuesday

 

again, did not get up to lift. not sure what’s going on.

 

throughout work day, all for 1min:

4 planks

wall sit

boat pose

chair pose

lunges @ 45s each

side planks @ 45s each

 

did “sprints” when I got home from work but took the dog and she makes it very difficult. Put a squirrel or other creature in front of her and she darts, but try to run with her just because? Nope. Oh well, I got out there and got a little sweaty so it’s all good. Did not get in 20 mins

 

*cals 1,520

CHO/FAT/PRO = 120/52/140

Losing 70 lbs and keeping it off is a HUGE accomplishment! I had no idea that that was your starting point.

I haven't been getting up to lift either. I think I have another sinus infection (or it's the same one, I'm never sure).

 

I hope it gets better soon!

 

Also, who doesn't love food?

i wish i had some sickies to blame on not lifting! i think i was just tired. there are totally people out there who don't think about how great food is every second of the day! i am just not one of them ;)

hahahaha yessss that's actually the plan but it get fouled when i don't get up and DO it in the morning. i lack the energy and time to get exercise done in the evening unless it's a class that i've planned for and the SO is going to come home to take the dog out.

W0D3 – Wednesday

 

annnnd went back to sleep after getting up on time and brushing my teeth. am I really just that tired? or lazy?

 

throughout work day, all for 1 min:

4 planks

1 plank @ 70s

wall sit

boat pose

lunges @ 1min each

side planks @ 45s each

 

finally did get in some mobility last night though and then had chicken&broccoli for dinner. I hadn’t added in all my chicken yet when I checked how many cals I’ve had so that I could see if I could have a cliff bar. Had the cliff bar, because it would fit but then realized I missed a couple ounces of chicken so over by a smidge yesterday.

 

*mobility 14/30

 

*cals 1,533/1,500

CHO/FAT/PRO = 112/60/142

 

I did get up this morning, take measurements/pictures, weighed myself, and went to the gym to DL!

i edited my original post to include measurements this year so far:

 

weight / BF%

2/6/16 – 164.4lbs

3/4/16 – 163.3lbs

4/2/16 – 162.4lbs / 30.05%

5/2/16 – 162.0lbs

6/9/16 – 161.0lbs / 29.75%

 

my weight is a rolling 7-day average from plugging in daily weight. bf% is an average of the military calculator and fat2fitradio's calculator

Yep, gotta make it. 2nd to last rucking challenge. I really gotta get to the point where this 50 lb pack isn't killing me by the end of 2-3 miles if I'm going to carry something not much lighter the entire night.

 

Yep, girls.

I mean, if you're going to go over one something, chicken is probably one of the best things. In my opinion.

It does help to have measurements! I have found that even though my weight is about 5-10 lbs higher than last year that I am still basically the same size. I should probably write down new measurements. But they are always the same as the last ones (more or less, it's hard to say with loose skin) so I haven't written them down again in the last 6 months. Measurements can help your sanity! Also, as mentioned previously my bra always informs me I'm losing body fat. :( haha.
