Just Do it Linsanity


Recommended Posts

I just finished grad school, landed a job, and am now starting to ease myself into adulting and feeling out my new home! In the past, I've always let school (and the stress that comes along with it) get in the way of me bettering myself physically and otherwise. Now that that excuse is gone, I've got nothin' but laziness standing between the me of today and the me of tomorrow. Now I need to muster up some motivation and just do it!

 

GOALS:

 

1. NO GRAINS

Exceptions: Rice. Also, I'll allow myself a beer on the weekends and an occasional lunch out with coworkers during the week

 

2. EXERCISE 5-6 days per week

My plan is to do a combo of strength and running. My goals are to increase my running distance (currently 1.5 miles) and pushup #. I'd love to get back to a 5k by the end of the challenge and 10-15 pushups as well.

 

3. LOG

Everyday - Food+Exercise on here

 

4. IMPROVE MYSELF

Either read or draw or both for 20+ minutes every day

 

I'll post stats Sunday!

 

GOOD LUCK YA'LL!!

So fun discovery - I'm less fit than I thought! Haha good thing I'm gonna change that! For today's workout I did some pushups and could only do 3 consecutively. I thought I could do at least 5, but guess not! Also, my run was more of a slow jog with walking breaks. So here's to changing that!

 

TODAY'S WORKOUT

Jogged a total of 16 minutes. There was plenty of walking in between, but I stopped my watch during that time.

 

Interval Circuit:

15 squats

15 situps

15 pushups 

x3

 

FOOD

Breakfast - Eggs, salsa & avocado 1/2

Lunch - Eggs, avocado 1/2, and sweet potato hash + apple

Dinner - Frittata

Snack - almonds

 

Wow, i ate a lot of eggs today! Oddly enough I'm not tired of them!

 

Reading goal check! Read a chapter from Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking. I highly recommend it to introverts who geek-out on personality stuff like myself! It's SUPER good!

 

STARTING MEASUREMENTS

These are higher than my starting measurements from previous challenges - which were over a year ago. Guess I got extra inches to lose this time around

 

Biscep: 13"

Chest: 40.25"

Hips: 42"

Waist: 35.25"

Butt: 42.75"

Thigh: 25.75"

Calf: 15.5"

 

Day 1 has been a success so bring on day 2!

TODAY'S WORKOUT

Jogged a total of 17 minutes and didn't start walking until after 12 minutes. Makin' progress! Total (jogging & walking) I went 2.8 miles. Slow and steady!

 

Interval Circuit

10 Backward lunges followed with single arm press (both legs)

10 Hollow Rocks

10 Single leg deadlifts

10 burpees

x3

 

FOOD

Breakfast - Eggs, salsa & avocado 1/2

Lunch - Burrito bowl (black beans, corn, rice, spinach, salsa, avocado 1/2, chipotle sauce)

Dinner - Frittata & apple

Snacks - Mixed nuts

 

My food log for the rest of the week should be exactly the same as today's since I batched cooked lunch and dinner last night. Hopefully, it'll stay this boring and ice cream and other horrible things won't show up on the log! ;)

 

Also, drew for 30 minutes today so all goals are complete!

WORKOUT

Rest Day

 

FOOD

Breakfast - Eggs, salsa & avocado 1/2

Lunch - Burrito bowl

Dinner - Frittata & apple

Snacks - Mixed nuts, cookies & ice cream - FAIL

 

Had a stressful day at work and then was craving sweets so I binged on cookies and ice cream :( This has been my problem area for a while now - binging. Any advice on how to deal with it? I'm thinking about trying to make biking or walking my go to anecdote because I think doing something outside (or i guess really anything that doesn't require staring at a computer screen, which is what I do at work all day) Running I don't enjoy so much yet so it wouldn't work. . .

 

I'm certified as a LEED Green Associate and so to keep it, I have to earn 15 credits of courses every two years. I have a year left, and have only gotten one credit. Procrastinator much? YES. ;) To punish myself for diet screw ups like this this challenge, I'll make myself earn one additional credit. To earn a credit you have to read a bunch of info on a topic and then take a test on it. I don't enjoy studying and taking tests, but need to get it done so I think it might make a useful punishment. Thoughts?
