Last challenge may have been a near-complete failure, but I had one success: I collected some solid data. I went in a dunk tank. I noticed that failing at one thing created a domino effect. And I started a bullet journal.

Taking what I learned, I've decided to only focus on controlling one thing this challenge.  The craziest line in the journal is the one labeled "eat. It was all over the place, from ideal ketosis to bingeing.  So this time around, I'm focusing on on doing whatever I need to do to eat well. Everything else supports that.

Work out, sleep as much as needed, move lots at a walking pace... and eat well.

I have a plan that I generated earlier this year that I'm going to aim for. Based on the apparent muscle I lost in the past year, I'm going to avoid going into a keto fasting state and simply lower my intake and try to keep my carb load under 150g/day, ideally around 100g/day. I'll aim for high protein, meaning that my fat consumption will have to go down slightly. It's a change, but completely doable! 

 

Down-week is going to be a "test" to see how things shake out with the new goals. I'm leaving space below for a summary, and maybe a summary for that line of my bullet journal.

So I stumbled into this "Barbell Shrugged" episode a few hours ago which basically reflects the issue I've discovered in my life of carbivorism, as well as the hiccough I hit this year in hardcore Keto. It basically suggests taking a "middle path," train low(er) race high(er) mentality. It's fits really well with what I was talking about earlier! 

 

Today I wasn't feeling well, but I have been eating well. Having a pull-up bar near my desk rocks, and the spare bedroom will be taking on some yoga practice this afternoon. For a day where CrossFit didn't happen, I think it's going well :)

 

I'm thinking that next month I'll take a "break" from CrossFit and train at the conventional gym and outside. I live so close to the community trail system and actually have a back yard with a place for "box" (wall) jumps, a spot for tyre flipping if I ever get one, a stack of wood rounds that should be here soon for chopping, and as many odd implements  as I can dream up in the coming weeks.

Thanks, ladies!! That's huge encouragement for me to post more! 

 

Today is my last day of teaching for the week. I didn't find out until yesterday (half way through the training) that they signed up for the wrong course. They have a probing metrology device, no scanner included... This could have been a 2 day training, in which case I would be at home in my bed right now. :blink:

 

Still, I got in a kick-ass workout Thursday evening. The "strength" was a 50-40-30-20-10 kcal row, with 1 minute rest between rounds. the WOD was 5 RFT [21 wall balls + 15 kcal row + 9 toes to bar]. Brutal! Hopefully I'll get a workout in this evening. Tomorrow should be relaxed and easy to fit a workout into. Also, I'll be at home, so eating should register as "normal" :)

Metrology??? What do you do again, becks?

 

I work for a company that makes metrology software - no, not meteorology.

 

k1eTFSn.gif

 

It's software for precision measurement and reverse engineering. The best way I can explain it is: basically everything that you own that was manufactured had to be quality tested (or at least samples from that batch were quality tested) to make sure it had the correct form and that all the parts would fit together when it was assembled. Other times, you might need a replacement part, like Jay Leno did for one of his classic cars. My company's software can take laser scan data and help you re-build the part to send to a 3-d printer or a CNC mill for machining. 

 

 

The training is over! I'm back at home and looking forward to a workout this evening. Last night was my dad's birthday, and I might have over-indulged a little... Pollo alla parmigiana followed by Tiramisu. My bf had never had tiramisu before! I feel like a failure... On the plus side, we ordered one slice and met in the middle :)

Life isn't about total abstinence, it's about moderation! So, if you go overboard once in a while, it's not really a failure, it's a happy medium :) (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

All things in moderation - including moderation :) 

 

Yesterday's 11.5+ mi hike on Mt Baker did justify the half liter of Hefeweitzen I drank right before bed, right? Seriously, though, I needed a good reset. Hiking long and hard just makes me feel so good, and makes my body crave good food. My hiking buddy has the nickname "longshanks", and it was all I could do to keep up with him. Normally, I budget 2 - 2.5 mi/hr hiking. We did ours in just over 4 hours, including a nice long lunch break on top of a fire lookout. What a great way to kick off the challenge! T

 

his morning started out with a keto-friendly scramble (thanks to my wonderful bf), and I have a crock pot of shredded chicken cooking away. Here we go!

Okay, last night at CrossFit was good and bad. Good was that we did tons of mobility, especially in our hips. Bad is that, according to Coach K (who is also a PT), I have a strained left pectoral muscle. I made it half way through the WOD before it got hot enough to make me nervous and I quit. Coach K put her thumb on the front of my shoulder, right in the dip where my arm attaches. There was a moment of "Waaaah!" when she pushed down on the exact point of the strain. So, I'm in a rest it and stretch it routine for the time being. 

 

I'm puppy sitting this week! My friend's border collie is my morning walking buddy through Thursday. My bf and I are treating this as our trial run for eventually getting our own puppy...

Puppy pictures will happen when/if the puppy does! Right now I have a black and white goober of a frisbee fiend sacked out next to my desk... I'd give her another 5 minutes of snoozing before she's begging me to take her outside to play again :rolleyes:

 

I spilled coffee on my journal this morning, but somewhere in the blurred squares I am reading that so far, I'm doing well on the eating front.  All of that being supported by other stuff:

  • Walking. It's happening, and it's good for me. 
  • Working out. My strained pec feels back to normal today... I think it'll be good to go for a workout this afternoon
  • Sleep is happening at very nearly 8 hours/night. 
  • M and I had a beer on a boat with a friend who is back in town for the first time in years. It was good, built community, and didn't blow my food budget. 
  • I'm pausing my CrossFit membership this afternoon for the coming month... bracing myself for the coming month of travel and working out at a gym that has only one nearly-complete set of bumper plates and a distinct lack of muscle up bars

 

Eating well, at least so far, seems to be a good indicator of whether I have the other stuff in my life in order. 

bonus: I finally got last month's disaster of a haircut taken care of yesterday!

On the road again, I just can't wait to get on that road again...

Well, I left town this morning for a week of sales work at a big company in my area. I didn't leave town before bingeing on Honey Bunches of Oats and anything else I could get my paws on. The binge ended with me going to the gym for a brief workout. It was weird to be at a "normal" gym this month instead of my usual CF gym. I have only had a low-GI protein bar since, so hopefully the end of the day goes better. After last week's good eating, my water weight dropped down. After this morning, the "puffiness" is back full force. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back on track! 

 

When I think about it, this morning started last night with popcorn. I love popcorn, but corn in general sh*ts up my digestive tract. It scrapes up my large intestine and goes straight to my head as sugar. Seriously, I can drink a beer with fewer consequences than a 1/2 cup of kernels. Anyhoo, that seemed to be the wobble before I went off balance. I've righted the boat and will spend the afternoon bailing out water. I'm not sure what this week is going to look like while I'm away from home, so... hm. I guess I'll just try to walk a lot and somehow take on that Combat Challenge

oyve, day 1 of the tech show is completed. I got a text at 1:44 this morning from my co-worker who's supposed to be guiding me through the process. He was letting me know that he had just arrived at the hotel and that he would not be at our table for initial setup in the morning... for the first 3 hours. At first, I had a little bit of a panic and tried to convince him to come help me set up, then go back to the hotel and sleep. He said I could handle it. I was basically thrown in the deep end.

Me at 1:50 am

 

It all turned out okay. I was up at 0340 thanks to my safety alarm, ~5 hours of sleep in the bag. I had food ready. I chatted mainly with other vendors for the first few hours... on the whole, it was really quiet. When my co-worker arrived, I started listening to his discussion with Boeing folks on how they were currently using our program and future potential uses. Mind = blown. Long story short, I'm "opening" again tomorrow for him. Lasers are so cool!! 

giphy.gif

 

I also got an unintentionally long walk in this afternoon... so yay for that! My eating wasn't full of the healthiest stuff, but overall it was high-ish protein and low-ish carbs, and my body feels good this evening. Yoga, shower, then bed :)

I'm still laughing about that boxer and his lasers. The poster at the tech fair I was working at last week said "We have lasers and we know how to use them!"

 

This weekend was a "vacation". I worked out with my CF crew Saturday AM, then my bf and I met up with them at a beer festival, ate a delicious fried chicken gravy on a biscuit sandwich followed by a half gallon of Dryer's Slow Churned ice cream, and watched my college football team squash a ranked opponent (Go Cougs!). It was blissful after a week on the go!

 

Sunday was supposed to be "damage control", a 10-ish mile hike starting at my back door. About 7 miles in, on my way down the mountain, my knee flared. I was feeling great, over the sugar rush, cruising. I kicked my right leg up to step over a root, and it was like the tendon connecting my quad to the top of my patella went from elastic to beef jerky, just *hot*. I called my bf to come rescue me... the poor man put up with some unusually vulgar language from me as I tried to cope with my frustration with this ******** ******** ****** joint. Last time this happened I was 5 miles into a 45 mile hike.t least I was still on the island this time and only a mile from the road! Also, I hiked close to 

 

Lucky me, my bf's dad, a physical therapist, dropped by unannounced in the afternoon and took a look at it for me. I have either tendonitis or bursitis in my suprapatellar bursa. Sh*t. Back to the "Runner's Knee" routine. 

 

All that being said, any suggestions for dealing with tendonitis and such? I am not icing, but cut up a bike tube last night to use as a compression band and I'm thinking of having it taped for the time being.      I'll just be hanging out on Support in the meantime.

Just reading through this Challenge thread I can tell that there have been quite a few "ups and downs" but somehow you keep bouncing back.  Very inspiring!  

 

Thanks! Yep, "ups and downs" just about sums it up. I'm constantly trying to fiddle with the things that I can change to deal with the things that I can't (like travel and crazy hours for work). 

 

This morning I went to the conventional gym with my bf, and we're planning on waking up in the morning and doing the same thing again.

Sleep was prioritized over the gym yesterday. I was up for an hour at 2 AM with cramps in the top of my right quad, the one that had the tendon strain from hiking on Sunday. So we got 9 hours of sleep. The following few hours were crazy at work, but I guess that's what I get for having an easy Monday and Tuesday. I had to boot a clingy someone off the phone so I could go practice French with my bf's little sister. By the time I dropped her off, I was finally got a chance to process my frustration. Grrrrr. 

 

On the plus side, we had a great visit with part of my extended family (the sort of people you adopt into your family) and their 3 kids. It was a great hangout, but I ate food I shouldn't have (apple empanadas with ice cream) and we were too wired to sleep right away at sleep. Long and short of it, I'm running on low sleep, got up early to go to the gym, and ended up running errands and making bacon at 5:30 instead of going to the gym. But we're going after work! I promise!

Congrats on your pull up PR! I hope your leg/knee is feeling better!

 

I chopped up a bike inner tube to make a voodoo band, which worked wonders. 

 

Working out at the gym with my bf has been great over the last week. I'm going to extend my "crossfit pause" through November and keep workin gout at the regular gym. Not being able to use the squat rack because there's someone curling in it is annoying, but at least we're getting good workouts together. 

 

My bags are half packed, I'm on my way to the eastern states tomorrow morning. 'Till then, the chili is on and it's time for some football!

Sunday didn't turn out as expected. Not so much in the eating sense, more in the... family and football sense. My bf's dad came over, which was great. He broke it to my bf that my bf's youngest brother has enlisted for a 2 year "mission" for their "church." The brother hasn't shown that much interest in his family's religion (and explicitly told me a few weeks ago that he doesn't believe that anyone should tell anyone else to change religions), which my bf left at 18 and is till dealing with some trauma from. So... I've been having trouble sleeping the last few days, and the 6 am to getting on a plane, then trying to sleep in the -3 hours, with too much on my mind. 

 

Otherwise, I'm getting it done. I got back to my hotel room at 8 with only 5k steps and rangered the other 5k away with a walk on the treadmill and a short, intense run. 

 

Also, Ohio coffee is dissappointing!

Home, challenge over, and completely successful over the past week. Not to say I ate perfectly, but I ate well, enjoyed home-made apple crisp with ice cream (yaaay for cooking with friends!) and a "Halb-Maß" bier at the Hofbräuhaus. 

 

Overall, it was a good trip, good class, and a great visit with friends. And I'm exhausted and ready to be home!
