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.

 

Progress is not linear.  We've all heard this before; we know it's true. The challenge is in accepting it.  I've really been struggling the last few challenges.  It doesn't feel like I'm making progress but habits are being reinforced, attitudes are changing, and mindfulness is becoming easier.

The GoRuck that was to happen at the very start of this challenge has been cancelled.  The next event is the 5K Milk Run at the Minnesota State Fair.   So it's time to switch gears on training and start running.  I have been travelling a lot this summer with 2 more trips coming up during this challenge.  When travelling sometimes workouts get skipped; sometimes they get replaced.  I figure as long as I am in control of my food choices then missing some workouts won't make a huge difference in meeting my goals.  I'm tired of taking two steps backward all the time and I know this is due to my food choices and my relationship with food.  So this challenge is basically similar to the last umpteen challenges with a few exceptions...  I've tried to simplify it a bit; the primary focus of this challenge is food choices, and the training focus has changed from rucking to running.

 

FOOD

I've mapped out the challenge days, starting with today, and noted travel days so I can account for them.  Last challenge I adopted a modified calorie goal so that allows for more on weekends and travel days, rest days, and recovery days.  I've added the calorie goals for each day on the Magic Spreadsheet of SuccessTM (MSS).  For each day I'll document the actual calories, logged with MFP.  Scoring will occur in 1 of 2 ways, I haven't decided which yet until I have some data and see how it shakes out.  At the end of each week, I'll have a projected Average Daily Calorie intake (ADC) an actual Average Daily Calorie intake.  Scoring option #1: The calculated percent difference between the projected and actual.  Scoring Option #2: the number of days of the week that actual stayed within projected.  I think I prefer Option #1.  This will account for whether I go over a little or a lot, same with staying under goal, rather than just not getting a point if I go over by a respectable amount of calories and then go under the same amount another day.  What I want to avoid is trying to make up calorie overages on another day.  I'm OK using some short calorie days to average out some over days but I don't want to end up cutting too much on some days to account for variance days.  This will send me right into a spiral of variance days that will never end.  

 

TRAINING

Training has been mapped out on the MSS, accounting for travel days. For the most part each week follows this plan:

3 Run Days. distances determined by Runkeeper 5K training plan. Weather will be a factor as it has been a really hot and humid summer and this makes running suck. 

2 Lift Days.  using training plan from my trainer.  

1 Active Rest Day.  This can be 10 minutes of yoga, 10 minutes of Shovelglove, rucking, hiking, walking, swimming with the family, biking, catching Pokemon, anything. I don't care what and it doesn't have to be much, just don't be a Blerch.

Well helloooooo there! 

 

Following along of course. One thing though, what is a milk run? In my house, a milk run is when you go out to buy milk because you have forgotten it and can no longer imbibe tea. Is it a bunch of people who all forgot to buy milk?

 

Looking forward to watching you slay this challenge Ms Shello.

Milk Run is just the fancy name they gave it since it's at the State Fair.  My fee for the 5K does include a ticket for a free malt.  And, there is a milk tent where you can buy all you can drink milk for only a couple dollars.  Tip - don't actually drink all the milk you can drink at once.  You will regret it.
