Black Daiquiri's Hunter's Checklist


Black Daiquiri

Recommended Posts

Well, this will be a fun one. I’ve got my handy hunter’s checklist and added a few more items to it. After all there are a few items other than salt and a sawed-off shotgun needed.

 

 

Exercise

NFA represent!

I’m still level 1 and I’m ok with that. Baby steps. Some of the exercises are easy, some I’m doing modified versions, and a few I can totally tell that I need to do more of - not because they’re hard to do, necessarily, but because it’s more that they work muscles that I have issues with due to my work of choice (damn you, computers and poor posture!).

  • NFA Workouts, starting with lvl 1. I may level up during the challenge, but this quest item will stay for the duration

  • Walks 5x/wk. The weather is turning from hot to cool so now all I need to do is get up off my butt, strap the baby in the stroller, and get out there. Walks should be at least 20 minutes.

  • Front plank. This is my epic quest for this challenge. One of the exercises for my NFA L1 is to do 3 20 second front planks. Well, since I had a c-section back in March, my abs are all lolnope. My goal for this one is to reach one 30 sec. full elbow-toes front plank by the end of the challenge. I will start at 5 sec knee planks once or twice a day and slowly work my way up.

 

 

Food

Diet is important. I am not scaling back on anything specific because accounting for breastfeeding makes numbers awkward, but I am food-logging everything.

 

 

Sugar Beast

LcWorW5oTfsuk.gif

 

I want to defeat the Sugar Beast. Whenever I crave chocolate or candy or any other sweet crap, I will grab a bite of fruit or a glass of water.

 

The Sugar Beast for this round is more mental recognition than numbers tracking. Here is the actual NFA quest:

Quote

Steps to complete this Sugar Level 1 quest: First, make sure you are well stocked with a couple of your favorite fruits. Second, whenever you feel a sugar craving from candy, chocolate, dessert, sugary drinks, etc reach for and consume your favorite fruit instead. Defeat 5 cravings in this manner and you’ve completed this quest. For this stage of our process, we are going to accept the sugar in the fruit consumption as a healthy alternative in order to establish better habits and routines around food and sugar in general.

 

The quest says to defeat 5 cravings, I am going to do this for the entire challenge. My goal is to become more mindful about what I'm grabbing to eat. I have a horrible sweet tooth and love candy. I don't drink sugary soda that often, so I'm ok on that one, but the candy (and lately, chocolate) has become a mindless snack for me. How I'm going to track this is that if I walk into the kitchen to grab crap food and deliberately and mindfully decide to grab some fruit, healthy snack, or glass of water (since a lot of hunger symptoms can be hydration related), I will mark off a win for the day. If I mindlessly grab some junk food but catch myself eating it mindlessly and put it away, I will mark half a square. This is a "I did it" once during a day thing as far as the tracker is concerned, but in my daily logs, I'll make sure to note each good decision so that at the end of the week, I can see my good decisions.

 

 

Water

jPDmjSXS4vsdy.gif

 

Water. Consuming you is my bane and I wish I could just drop this challenge, but I really need to keep it in mind and log how much I drink and increase my intake.

 

 

Household

TgkFgXNnv2HiU.gif

 

Cleaning sucks. Luckily, for the past 6 months my husband has picked up the slack while I’ve focused on the new baby. But now that he’s old enough to entertain himself for a bit (the baby, not the husband, though I suppose the husband is also old enough to entertain himself...), I need to start stepping it up. Anything from dishes to laundry to deep cleaning a room falls into this category. As for how often I'm cleaning, my goal is one cleaning per day. I'd love it if that line of my tracker was full for the entire challenge, though being realistic, I'll be happy with 5/7 cleanings per week.

 

Tracking Things

Tracking everything in my fancy fitness zibaldone with a tracker checklist as well as daily logging. Bonus is that I get to be super creative a bunch with the journal and coloring and practicing fun ways to handletter. :D

Good questions!

 

So, the Sugar Beast for this round is more mental recognition than numbers tracking. Here is the actual NFA quest:

Sugaaaaaaaarrrrr! And right before Halloween too. I am totally standing in solidarity on this one with you so I don't compulsively partake of sugar stuff. It is so hard while breastfeeding, I am basically an open mouth and a hungry pit most of the 24hrs. Struggling to keep away from the Clif bars I like to survive on lately and eat more true protein and foods.

You can do it! Our challenges are very similar this round.

I like that paper tracking plan. I might do something like that this go-round. Something about having it on paper appeals to me.

Yeah, I feel like I'm a hollow pit most of the time because of breastfeeding. And then I eat too much when I get a chance to eat food!

I am enjoying the paper tracking much more than trying to use the plethora of apps available. Plus, I get to do fun things like add doodles or cut out colorings or something to make it a journal I'll want to look over again. :)

Clif bars are sneaky. They're really good once in a while, but when they become a staple in the diet, it's time to pull back and reevaluate :P (i say from experience)

Week 0 summary will be posted tomorrow (today?), but I wanted to mark down that I managed to drink my full 8 glasses (and then a bit) of water today. Of course, it's not because I had some awesome special bout of willpower or anything, but was instead because of what I think may be my third migraine in the past two weeks. Yay. --.--

 

Guess my body is getting over whatever hormones made it so I didn't have migraines after my second trimester last fall. v_v  Gonna try to get some sleep now.

Week 0 Summary

 

Remember when I said this?

Well, hello heat & humidity wave. >.>

 

Exercise (NFA, Plank, Walk): 2/5 Suck.

 

Food Logging: 7/7 Yay! I remembered to write things down!

 

Sugar Beast: 5.5/7 At least once for 5 days I mindfully grabbed a healthy snack instead of crap. Yay! And yesterday, I made two batches of peanut butter protein bars that are really yummy, so I have those as backup for candy snacks this next week. I did go buy some chocolate, though, because Toblerone and chocolate covered raisins. :P

 

Water: Wavered between 4 and 6 glasses most days. Hit 8+ glasses yesterday due to a migraine, so yay for hitting my goal, but boo for the reason. >.>

 

Household: 6/7 Yay! Though, on that one day where I didn't do a thing, I kind of felt ugh about not doing a thing, but I did do a lot of work-work and then there was a football game in the evening (daughter's last year cheerleading!!).

 

And journal photos!

Sure! It's a super, duper easy no-bake. From here: http://www.seededatthetable.com/2016/03/02/easy-peanut-butter-protein-bars/

Easy Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 12 bars

Serving Size: 1 bar

Calories: 249

 

These Easy Peanut Butter Protein Bars are no-bake and contain only four simple ingredients. A great snack to boost your energy and serve a source of protein!

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder

Line a 9x9-inch or 7x11-in pan with parchment or wax paper.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat the peanut butter and honey on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Place bowl back in the microwave and heat for another 30 seconds. Stir again. Mix in the oats and protein powder until combined. Immediately spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Refrigerate, uncovered, for 1 hour. Remove from the fridge and cut into 12 bars. Cover and store on the counter at room temperature for up to 1 week. (I just store mine in the same pan with a lid.)

 

But since I'm still playing around with these, I'm trying to come up with different mixes to keep from getting to the "blah, more peanut butter" stage. With this last set, I made one batch according to the recipe, but split it in two and mixed a handful of mini chocolate chips into one half - where they promptly melted because of the warmed honey/pb mix, so that half turned out kind of swirly. The other half I left just peanut butter.

 

For the second batch, I changed it to 3/4c quick oats and 3/4c oat flour. These bars are a bit firmer, but still yummy. I topped half of this batch with mini chips and the other half with almond slices. I don't really care for the almond slices on top. They may be ok mixed in, but 'eh. I meant to make some with raisins, but forgot. :P

 

I've read other recipes that use agave syrup instead of honey if that's your thing. Or you can try different nut butters - my BIL has a huge jar of almond butter, so I might try a cup of that in one of my next batches. I might try mixing in some banana chips or other dried fruit or maybe mini-m&ms or walnuts (i like walnuts a bit better than almonds).

Oooh those sound tasty! I've made some with Dates and cranberries but that was without oats. 

 

It's always fun to do some food experiments. :)

That wonderful fall weather is here this week!! So, bebe and I went for a nice walk out and it was gorgeous and I loved it and he was kind of just taking it all in.

 

Here's my page for the mini. If level 2 will fit in the rest of the page (next week), I'll add it, otherwise, I'll add in a doodle or color something from one of my coloring books and paste it in or something.

Saturday, I'm going to our rec center to sign up. I really enjoyed my membership a few years ago (even though I was doing Zumba on a knee with a torn meniscus) mostly because there was a class called Body Blast where I had a complete love/hate relationship with it. Since the class has been gone, the only one (that wasn't some sort of gentle, boring-to-me yoga or spin class) was Zumba and that wasn't worth the monthly charge.

 

Now, looking over the classes, they still have Zumba (yay! I love dancing and moving to music) and now they have a Pound class (not sure what it is yet), and a Turbo Kick Live/Piyo Live class (they alternate every 6 weeks and they look interesting).

 

And... in looking at the times of the classes, I will need to enlist the help of family for babysitting duty during classes. Hmm. /ponders
