LadyShello is Tired of Waiting


Shello

Recommended Posts

Last year was a rough year.  This year I had planned to make a comeback, then I overcommitted and my schedule has been really busy.  I've been waiting for too long and I don't want to do it anymore.  I've tried a few different ways of working on my 2017 Roadmap despite my schedule with varied success.  This time it is going to work.  This is the last challenge with the crazy schedule and I want to position myself for an epic challenge next time around.

 

I'll be working on 2 things and 2 things only - Food and Fitness

 

Food - Whole30

I'm taking the plunge.  I've been curious about trying it before but wasn't sure I could do it.  I know I can do it now.  I eat close to paleo already but my habits are littered with too many small variances that I don't even notice anymore.  My habits are my worst enemies. They add up to barely maintaining my weight.  I am hoping to kickstart some weight loss but most importantly I am hoping to get a refresh on my food habits so that I can get back to 80-90% paleo next challenge.  This will start Wednesday of Week 0 so that the last day will be the last Thursday of the challenge.  

 

Fitness - Athena's Playbook

I've struggled to find and make the time for fitness.  I've managed to find small pockets of time but with no clear direction or schedule for fitness I haven't been able to use it well.  Darebee to the rescue.  Athena's playbook is a general fitness 30 day challenge that seems to fit the bill perfectly.  It incorporates upper body, lower body, abs, cardio, and yoga.  I can schedule the easier days around my schedule and as long as I at least do level 1 each day, it's a pass.  I can do more if I have the time but it's not required.  I will be taking Tuesdays as a rest day since it is the busiest day.  I will start immediately on Monday and should finish at the very end of the challenge.  Skipping a day is allowed if necessary but it will have to be made up to pass.

Glad to have you.  Sadly, there will be nothing to track since the only option every day is 100%. :)

Weekend 0 was glorious.  We ordered pizza on Friday - WIN.  I did some Whole30 batch cooking Saturaday to get ready for the week and made enough for dinner.  Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with haricot vert and carrots.  It was a hit and no one could tell it was Whole30.  Easter dinner was orange and fig glazed ham with asparagus, carrots, taters, and bunny breads. Then carrot cake for dessert.  The best part of that ham is the leftovers can be used in a quesadilla with fig jelly and havarti cheese.  And leftover carrot cake too... 

 

My dad and step mom were in town and other than the first evening, my stepmom was on her best behavior.  We played some games, did an escape room, and went to a movie over the weekend.  I got very little schoolwork done.  It was a good time. :) 

 

Week 1 Whole30 prep is complete. 

I've got the dinners squared away.  I made some homemade turkey sausage with eggs and a vegetable hash for lunch.  Paleo granola with berries for breakfast is prepped.  I've also got some extra sausage and some extra chicken breast for emergencies along with snacks with veggies, fruits, and nuts.  

 

I know you don't need to log food on Whole30 and I am mostly not going to worry about it.  But I did use it log 1 proposed day just to see what the macros came out to be and to make sure I wasn't going overboard.  Turns out the initial meal plan was quite low on calories so I can look forward to some larger portion sizes and I've got the extra food to help when I am hungry.  The drawback is that there is a lot more sugar and carbs from the freggies than I am used to seeing.  I can work on using more leafy greens and make sure there are more veg and fruit but in general I think I will have to deliberately stay away from logging food because it messes with my head.  This does mean losing my 473 day streak on mfp.

You only have to log in to keep the streak running, you don't have to track unless you have your own special rules for this.

That's true.  Any the 473 days streak has some days that didn't get tracked - mostly weekend 0's.  But if I am deliberately not tracking for such an extended period of time it doesn't seem like the streak would be valid somehow.

Yeah but it's not like you're not tracking because you're faceplanting cake or something. You're not tracking because you're trying a different method. 

 

Still counts ;)

Clean challenge, I like it.  That should be an efficient use of your time and efforts while you're still over-committed.  I think you should go ahead and break your MFP streak on purpose.  It's just another obligation at this point, and I doubt maintaining it would help you in any way.

 

I'm reasonably confident that it's almost as hard for me to type that as it is for you to entertain the notion. ;)

This can actually make it easier for you to stick to the plan. I function a lot better when I'm eating a higher % of carbs. 

I'm curious how this will affect you.
