LadyShello Keeps Her Shit Together

My Boring Backstory

  Reveal hidden contents

 

For those of you catching up, last challenge was a coop challenge where if either I or my cohort, Deftona, failed to meet our goals we would both incur some punishment.  This format worked wonders for me to get my shit together and get back on track with following goals and making them a priority.  But I am not out of the woods yet.  I just about lost my shit over weekend 0 (this is why a whole week 0 is not a good idea for me) so it's painfully clear that these habits need more work in order to make them stick.  My overall goal is the same and last challenge worked, so I'm keeping the same goals this time around.  This is just back to being an individual challenge.  If I miss a workout, I alone incur the punishment.  If I go over my calorie goal, I alone incur the punishment.  Last challenge was like learning to ride a bike (again) with training wheels and someone holding onto the bike.  This challenge no one else is hanging on but I've still got the training wheels on.  

 

Food goal will follow the varied calorie goal schedule.  I’m allowing for a bit higher calories on weekends and then a few lower calorie days during the week.  All the while not restricting myself, particularly on recovery days when I am the hungriest. 

Since my calorie goal is varied, I have set up tiers for the purposes of determining punishment. 

  • For a 1450 calorie day I have a 100 calorie leeway.  Anything over 1550 calories is a minor infraction, over 1650 a major infraction.
  • For a 1600 calorie day it’s a 90 calorie leeway.  Anything over 1690 calories is a minor infraction, over 1780 a major infraction.
  • For a 1900 calorie day it’s 80.  Anything over 1980 calories is a minor infraction, over 2060 a major infraction.

 

Training goal is to work out 5 times a week, preferable 3 runs and 2 lifting sessions but I’m allowing for some substitutions.  I’m likely to be joining a weight loss challenge at my gym.  In addition to the required 5 workout days, I’d like 1 active rest day.  That can be just about anything, going for a walk, catching Pokémon, splashing about at the pool with the kids, swinging a sledgehammer, or even shopping might count if it's active enough.    

 

PUNISHMENTS:

 

        1st Dietary Minor Infraction: Add extra sets or miles on top of whatever we had planned for our next workouts

        2nd Dietary Minor Infraction: Do the Darebee daily workout (in addition to our normal workouts)

        3rd Dietary Minor Infraction: The same as a major infraction

  Major Dietary Infraction: 1 dairy-free meal and only cold showers the following day

 

        1st missed workout: Darebee Daily Dare, with extra credit if possible, or do it twice

Any subsequent missed workout: 50 burpees per missed workout

punishments

 

Exceptions:  NONE!  I won't be making it to the HammerRace so without that trip I have no trips planned for this entire challenge!  I am excited for a challenge that I can completely focus on my goals.

I finally replaced my broken laptop and got it set up tonight.  I couldn't decide between 2 different laptops.  One had a larger screen and was heavier and the other had a screen smaller than my last laptop but was super light.  I picked the larger screen but now I'm regretting it.  It's big and clunky.  I hate indecision...

And I agree. Being sick or having just a really bad day should give you a day off from your goals once in a while.

Glad to have you again.  Good luck keeping up.

I was thinking about it but they tend to work out.  I'll use a free pass for migraines and if I get sick I'll implement appropriate Plague ProtocolsTM that may allow for skipped workouts or lower intensity workouts depending on the illness and severity.  For those kick you in the soft spot days I just need to ranger up and get it done anyway.  I can always skip accessory work on lift days if need be.

Ugh, I hate that kind of decision too. I had to buy a new laptop last year and fought between my desire for a small, light one and my desire for a 10-key. 90% of the time I'm glad I went with the small one but when I'm doing my side accounting stuff I really wish I had a 10-key

 

Both options were Dell and both had 10-key.  (10-key is a necessity to me)

Both have Intel5, 8GB, 1T harddrive, and similar graphics.  The only difference is the 17.5'' screen vs the 15.5" screen..and the weight difference.  

 

I tried loading Sims4 last night but Origin was having issues and I was getting tired and just gave up.

I cannot emphasize this enough, get a SSD! IMHO it's becoming the most important piece of hardware in a computer. Ofcourse i can't see your budget... but seriously, get a SSD, any SSD is better than a HDD. If you can afford it, buy an extra ssd and use the 1TB harddrive as an external HDD.

You could always get an external 10-keypad, and keep it with your accounting stuff ;)
