CM's light and fluffy challenge

Recommended Posts

Quest 1

z2ttOV.gif

I’m a bit all over the place right now with taking care of my dad who’s recovering from a stroke, being a MOH, being a bridesmaid, dealing the with the crazy time that is summer, and ya know, working full time. I failed pretty hard at calorie goals last challenge and even didn’t track some days which is unusual to me. Let’s just see if I can track everything this challenge and cook for myself when I’m home on the weekends.

*calorie goals - track everything

*cook 7 weekend/day off breakfasts and 5 lunch/dinner meals throughout the challenge

*take measurements and progress photos for challenge end

 

Quest 2

going back to a basic 3 session per week schedule. my sessions are only about 35-45 minutes long but if I can get back into the habit of gym in the morning, I’ll call it a win.

*complete 3 lifting sessions per week

 

Quest 3

would like to keep up my mobility habit as well as yoga and some cardio. nothing is being added here since the last couple challenges so it should be do-able.

*complete 30 minutes of foam rolling or mobility per week

*complete 4 yoga sessions throughout the challenge

*complete 4 (at least 20 min) cardio or HIIT sessions throughout the challenge

 

Let’s get fluffy.

How is your dad doing now?

better every day, more and more words are coming to him and he is able to string together sentences now. very encouraging! a lot of work though as the oldest child of a divorced dad. short term disability, finding rides to outpatient care, groceries/food, laundry, bills, power of attorney, yada yada. likely the main reason why I can't get up for the gym in the mornings!

throughout work day:

4 planks @ 70s

*cals 1,548

CHO/FAT/PRO = 130/37/167

I love those fitness blender workouts! Before I moved in the fall they were a staple. At that time all I had was a tiny apartment gym (no barbells whatsoever). In my apartment I had adjustable dumbbells which I did workouts with plus the fitness blender videos. I love that you can search them by difficulty, workout type, body split, etc.

i honestly had only heard of them in passing before and it was the first thing that popped up when i searched 'cardio' on my youtube (which i can watch on my TV through PS3). i might have to check out the website so i can be more specific with my search on youtube next time to get the difficulty, etc!

If you search on their website and find what you want, it is then easy to google/bookmark the workouts you like on youtube.

W0D4 – Thursday

 

throughout work day:

3 planks @ 70s

wall sit @ 1min

lunges @ 1min each

side planks @ 1min each

 

ate a bunch of candy from the work jar and probably too many cashews when I got home. but I did yoga and some mobility after visiting my dad and before cooking dinner!

 

*yoga 1/4

*mobility 26/30

 

*cals 1,799

CHO/FAT/PRO = 119/84/148

 

annnnnd I finally got up this morning and went to the gym! good thing I did too, because there was a shelldar there for me to capture :D

 

will be a hectic weekend as my dad is going home tomorrow and we have a ton of family coming in for some get togethers. plan is:

 

Friday

squatz!, werk, visit dad, fold laundry and drink hard cider, dead and co. show with family

 

Saturday

bench, grocery shopping for myself and dad, bring dad home and supervise him getting settled, family cookout

 

Sunday

deadlift, family brunch, visit dad, batch cook for the week

 

i think i got this. saturday i can have bfast at home and sunday i will do dinner at home. unless i decide to go out on sunday... which i really shouldn't right? so that I actually get up monday morning for yoga?

 

oh and i totally forgot to mention that my coworkers are doing a 3-day juice cleanse next tues-thurs and i hopped on board that. meh. why not? i hope to not smoke or drink coffee for those days either. although it's only 1200cals/day my body could use a short steep cut right now.

FLOOF

But yeah, nothing wrong with taking a challenge to get back on track. I think that, on a deeper level, that's what all these challenges are about - us having been knocked off track by the lives we lead, and trying to find our way back.

CHO/FAT/PRO = 174/80/114

 

W0D6 – Saturday 

 

did not wake up early enough to make it to the gym before the day got underway. went grocery shopping for myself and dad. realized how much I love grocery shopping and really should start my own personal shopper business…

 

had a half boiled egg, an oatmeal cookie from my sister, and a packet of oatmeal for breakfast. then headed over to the family cookout and ate many things. and then hung out at my dad’s house for the rest of the evening.

 

*breakfast 1/7

9, 8, 8

 

then brunch, then finally watching deadpool at my dads, then thai food take out at home with kimmy schmidt. the thai food was probably not a great decision (seeing as I’m trying to cook my own food on the weekends) but I had just cooked a meal for lunches today and didn’t really have anything left to cook up for dinner.

 

*lifting 2/3

*mobility 30/30

 

*cals 1,964

CHO/FAT/PRO = 248/62/83

Week 0 summary:

 

Quest 1

*track everything tracked! I added in the rest of Sunday’s food this morning but still was consciously opening the MFP app over the weekend which I had gotten out of the habit of doing

*cook for yourself just one at home meal this past weekend. pfft.

 

Quest 2

*complete 3 lifting sessions per week two out of 3 is better than the one lonely time I lifted the week before.

 

Quest 3

*complete 30 minutes of foam rolling or mobility per week check!

*complete 4 yoga sessions throughout the challenge 1/4!

*complete 4 (at least 20 min) cardio or HIIT sessions throughout the challenge 1/4!

 

so all in all I did 2 lifting sessions, a yoga session, and a cardio session. not tooooo shabby. week 1 will be better especially with the juice cleanse and not having to cook for 3 days!

W1D1 – Monday

 

throughout work day:

5 planks @ 70s

wall sit @ 1min

boat pose @ 1min

lunges @ 1min each

side planks @ 50s each

 

ate a bunch of candyyyyy at work

 

went home, did yoga, and ate some ground turkey with broccoli for dinner. I didn’t want to turn on the oven to roast the broccoli so I cooked them in the pressure cooker. I read that the flavor was better if you let it cook right in a tasty broth. well that turned out like mush. will use the steamer basket next time.

 

*yoga 2/4

 

*cals 2,467

CHO/FAT/PRO = 295/97/158
