TOW Ada doesn't lose her sh!t (part 2)

Recommended Posts

Let's not talk about the last challenge.

 

Goal 1: Lose the holiday and the illnesses' weight. Solid goal this time for that is to limit sugar. I'm not limiting carbs, or even doing a low-carb diet (and that's for everybody's sake, you don't want me around on low carbs, I complain even more). Last challenge I was eating a lot of brownies and drinking lots of sugary energy drinks. I may have to add carbs to my dinners to hit the goals sometimes but that's fine.

Specific goals are:

a. Try the brownie recipe with sweet potatoes that @RedStone gave me and not eat brownies at work.

b. Only have energy drinks (preferably, Monster rehab that doesn't have much sugar) on the workouts on Sunday mornings.

c. Have a banana as pre workout (I did that up until I moved to Germany and it worked very well).

Excluded cases are:

a. I can have a piece of cake if there are visitors in Berlin. I have one person who will be in Berlin at some point during the challenge confirmed and another one whose visits is pending on work. (Second visitor would also be staying with me.)

b. If it is OK with my macros I will join for pizza night after ladies night at the gym, whenever it is arranged.

Goal 2: No excuses. I'll not skip reps or any circuits again. I will do the three workouts and take part on the circuit of ladies night at the gym.

Goal 3: Sleep. Sleep for 7-8 hours every night.

Bonus Goal: Deutsch. Practice German with Duolingo on non-gym nights!

It indeed is very very very precise...

Bonus (in general): Don't drop out. I've been seriously considering of dropping out of the gym's competition. I won't have fully recovered from the flu in time to feel prepared and I'm already less happy with my numbers (which is what I'm trying to stop so it's counterintuitive). If I finish the challenge without dropping out I'll consider it successful regardless of how everything else went.

love the german chart.

 

and seriously, don't drop out!  will be worth it :)

 

I'm just losing motivation because I'm feeling ran down by the flu. I was hoping to get, even if tiny, PBs but instead I'm trying to catch up to the same weights that I've been stuck at.

Yes but you didn't offer a gif so I may have to withdraw the clause and just make you do burpees instead! :P
