tishnicden respawns - back in the saddle again

Recommended Posts

Well, after taking the summer off, it's time to get back to it. I've seriously missed this community and all the accountability. Small goals, just getting back into it.
 

 

 

  • I will workout 3x/wk - MFP
  • I will remain within my caloric goal - MFP
  • I will get at least 7500 steps on non-w/o days - fitbit


Bonus - I will meal prep and make weekly menus accordingly.

Thanks! It's always hard to get back in the swing of things, but it's long over due and I am so ready.

Posting to follow. You're goals are pretty similar to mine this time around

 

 

Yeah, they're simple enough, but some how always trip me up. I am trying hard not to have a domino effect. So far so good! Happy to have you along!

Got my workout in this morning!!! I've been doing The Firm Get Chisel'd and 500 Calorie Workout alternating every other day. 

 

I love when you start a workout and it's super hard and as time goes on it gets easier and easier. I am, however, sooooo sore. Yay DOMS <_<

So far so good on the working out. I haven't skipped one yet and I just ordered 3 more DVD's, since the two I have in rotation are becoming redundant.

 

I have been surprising myself with how well I have been staying within my calories. I made the mistake of jumping on the scale yesterday. I haven't lost any weight (surprise surprise), but my clothes are fitting so much better. Facepalm moment when I knew I should've measured before I started. It really isn't all that important, but its nice to have numerical data showing progress. In that sense, I am having to up the amount of weight I'm lifting, so there's that.

 

Not going to lie, I've been slacking on steps. I'll have 3000 one day and 12,000 another so I figure it evens out.

 

 

This week I'm really focusing on staying hydrated. I have also started meditating, which is really new to me. I may make these two thing my goals in another challenge, but right now I'm just seeing how I do on my own.

update time!!!


So I update on the FB group a couple days ago about how it's been rough because my daughter was sick. Well, my other daughter got it as well, and now I have it. Because of that, I kind of put a hold on my challenge because I need to take care of myself. I did my workout on Monday, but then that's when the cold really hit me. I've been in sickness crisis mode since. I didn't do my workout today. Instead, I slept an extra 45 minutes, and to me, that's a win. Hopefully, I'll be back to normal for next week.

In other news, NSV! I was getting ready for bed last night and pulled a typical "bro" move. Flexed in the mirror and was seriously impressed with all the gainz,

Which lead to me jumping on the scale today, stupidly. Haven't lost anything, however, I am maintaining and my clothes fit SOOOO much better.

Thanks!! The kids are pretty much all better and I am on the mend. Going to see how I feel by the end of today to determine whether or not I am going to get my work out in tomorrow, or if I'm going to take the weekend to get 100%. I want to err on the side of caution, but I also don't want to slack. Oh, the fine line. lol

Totally had a cheat weekend. I am not sorry.

In other news.... I got back to lifting this morning. I missed it so much. Felt amazing. This stupid sinus/head cold thing is hanging around still, and I feel like my heads going to explode. Not fun. I spent the majority of yesterday with the worst sinus headache. One of my daughters is also still suffering through it. Going on two weeks now and I am SOOOO over it.

Progress report time!!!

Workouts: I generally lift M-W-F, with active rest days T-TH-S. Sunday is family day. Last week, I took off W-F due to being sick.

Caloric goal: I have been eating above my current goal, but not too much more than maintenance, again, due to being sick. I did splurge over the weekend. I am back to eating within my goal this week.

Steps: Oh, steps. How I try so hard to do this. With the storms we have been having and being back at my desk job, this is a task and a half. I will not be defeated.

 

Meal prep: The past two weeks, I haven't made my weekly menus. I will try to get back to it next challenge.

Guys. GUYS!!!! It's carb load day. Yes, I said DAY. Don't judge me.  All is well in the world.

 

carbs

 

 

I am focusing on finishing this challenge strong, but also looking to my next challenge. I think I have some pretty solid goals, and this time I am going to try and implement a point/reward system.

Today I am focusing on getting my steps in and eating my cals.

Thoughts from last night/this morning:

 

 

  • DOMS are evil. Truly.
  • Deadlifts are my favorite.
  • Why do I feel like my body is on fire?
  • I have perfected my form for squats!! Do ALL THE SQUATS!!!
  • Single leg deadlifts? YASSSSS
  • Mmmmm Protein.
  • Ow. Ow. Ow. My legs are no longer available for use.

well fml.

Just as I was starting to get better and NOT be sick after TWO weeks, I am sick again. Started getting a fever around 2 yesterday. At 5 it was 99.5 and by 7:30 it was 101.  Finally, my fever broke around 11 last night. Not quite sure how high it got because I slept it off. Woke up this morning and I'm pretty sure it's strep. Yay me.

Which leads me to this: I think I have been getting sick and not getting better because I take on too much and never take time for myself. I am so thankful next week is week 0. I am taking the week to take care of myself. I will take boiling hot baths. I will lay down and read. (I'm FINALLY reading A Game of Thrones. SOOOO much better than the show). I will destress and relax. I seriously need to take care of myself, that's for sure.

Finished up week four by going to the doctor. Confirmed strep and got antibiotics as well as a referral to the ENT to have my tonsils removed. Sooooo not looking forward to that. I've heard soooo many horror stories. However I know it'll be worth it in the long long run. 

 

This challenge has been rough on me. I got sick week two and finished week four with antibiotics. Luckily, my last day of meds is the first day of week 1 of the new challenge. (I start on Mondays lol). I didn't stray too much from what I needed to do this time around, though. 

 

PROGRESS REPORT!!!

Workouts - I did mostly all of them, except when I was sick, which is a win.

Caloric Goal - Also stayed within my goal, and when sick, stayed at maintenance. At the doctor I hadn't gained or lost anything. YAYYYY

Steps - I did better than I give myself credit for. Even on my sick days I had minimum 6000. Another reason I need to reevaluate my definition of "rest", though.

 

Now... on to the next challenge. Bring on week 0.

Eeek! Hubs had his tonsils out a few years ago and was off work for 2 weeks. Nothing really horrible, it's just extra hard on adults apparently. We were warned ahead of time so he had already planned on the two weeks.
