Tanktimus Must Feed: A Protein Intake Focused Challenge


Recommended Posts

Last challenge I focused on high reps on my weights, I’m going back to my regluar periodization program for this challenge. However, my focus this time is on Protein. I changed my protein goal in MFP to account for a larger percentage of my calories. I tried out a protein powder and have used it often to help hit my goal. Doing that means even on rest days I’m shooting for at least 200g. I have found that hitting that goal even a few days a week has produced good results. It’s not going to be a formal goal, but I tod plan to be more mindful of my protein intake this time around.

Strength: 8 lift days. Pretty straightforward here. I will do Bench and Squat on Mondays or Tuesdays and Deadlift and OverHead Press on Wednesdays or Thursdays.

Mobility: 6 NF Yoga workouts. I’ll do one session each of Water A and B, one sessions each of Fire A and B, and one Session of Star A and Yin. I like rotating the sessions because it keeps me from getting bored and Water A and B are shorter, it’s nice having the option to do them on a rushed day.

Walking: I have great places to walk, so it’s not hard to get out and do. There will be six walking days, a 2 mile, 4 3 mile walks, and a 4 mile walk are the goals.

Domestic Rangering: Still the goal here to do laundry, clean bathroom and kitchen and mop and vacuum once per week.

Eating: I will cook paleo and only allow myself two variances per week. This seems to be working, the trick is not to use a variance to go crazy. I’m going to track calories on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays. The goal is to track, when tracking I find I naturally keep myself on target.As mentioned above, I’m not going to make macros part of the goal, but I’m going to try and hit protein goals as often as I can, my body seems to like it when I do that, both with my ability to perform while lifting and with weight loss.

ETA: I think 200 is a good goal. I'll consider 175 to 199g marginally acceptable, 200 the goal, and to actually hit or exceed the protein goal set by MFP for the day as a bonus.

 

 

Here’s what I’ll use in the signature instead of progress bars.

Strength: 8 Lift Days

Welcome back, you are indeed on the first page.

 

Today is a good day (Eventually). Yesterday was date night with mi prometida, which meant a big variance. While we were out, I got a text that I ignored. When I finally saw it, my mother asked if we were going to my Grandfather's 90th birthday, and a question as to whether or not she had told us about it. She had not, and apparently she sent the text from the party :( Not the end of the world, but I was disappointed. Then when Mi prometida went home she had a wreck on the way. A police car was in the left lane with it's lights on, and she was slowed down (pretty much stopped) waiting to move into the right lane to get around. Someone wasn't paying attention and rear-ended her. No injuries other than some soreness, but the car is probably totaled. I went to go get her and took her to her apartment to get some stuff and then to her parents both so she wouldn't have to be alone that night and so they could take her to church in the morning. That threw my sleep off, which led to some feels today. Fortunately, I was able to call her earlier and process the feels. Food is good, but not the protein I'd like. Fortunately it's week zero. For lunch (and dinner) I sauteed a pound of parsnips in avocado oil with salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary. I set that aside. I then cooked a pound of grass fed, grass finished ground beef with salt and pepper, and set that aside. I then cooked half a sweet onion and two big cloves of garlic (chopped and minced, respectively) in avocado oil, adding more fresh chopped rosemary. To that I added 5oz baby kale and let it wilt, then 2 tbsp almond flour, 6 oz tomato paste, and a splash of chicken broth. I served that over the parsnips, it was awesome.

That's some rough stuff. I'm sorry you missed your grandmother's party. Does she live close enough that you might be able to catch up with her another time?

 

And of course I'm glad tu prometida is ok. (que esta sana y salva!)

Grandfather ;) And yes, he's less than an hour away. And she's fine, just frustrated that she's going to have to waste some of spring break on dealing with insurance stuff.

Glad your prometida is safe.

 

But maybe worrying and emotional eating has got you one calorie over again.

 

Parsnips FTW!

Glad mi prometida is fine. Sorry about the accident. Too bad about the party, hopefully you weren't too upset with your mom.She probably felt just as bad that she forgot to tell you. I'm a mom, I feel her pain. I've never it done it that late, but there have been times when it's been close because I forgot, or thought my husband had texted my son.

I saw the pictures on Facebook and am thankful that she is uninjured and safe! Also, yay for being there for her regardless of how it impacted your night! (I mean, I expect nothing less, but still).

 

I'm obviously following along your challenge because I am hoping you'll sneak in a maid picture or two. 

As I said to her dad when I dropped her off and he thanked me, "What kind of fiance would I be if I didn't come to the rescue?"

I wasn't upset with her, it happens. The extended family on her side is all introverts, sometimes we don't always communicate well.

Sorry to hear about the party and the wreck. :/ I'm glad Tu Prometida is alright. I hope she's planning to take it easy for a few days though. Car crash injuries can sneak up on you.

Ugh. I'm glad to hear she's ok! Totally frustrating that she'll have to deal with car drama over a vacation - but I'm sure you'll find a way to ease that drama.
