karinajean cycles in summer!


Recommended Posts

Time to cycle into summer!

 

I feel kind of low-key clever with that title, because it means so many things:

 

* I'll be cycling weeks - this week is good and possibly reasonable, but next week I am on vacation and things might get nuts. good nuts, like, on vacation nuts, but that means calorie restriction might be higher during week 2.

* which is the second pun, I'll be motorCYCLING (lolz wokka wokka thanks I'll be here all night)

* and then summer happens, right? on June 21, whether we are ready for it or not. So after vacation I need to cycle back into a better homebody mode, and get the yard in shape so I can sit in it and think about how beautiful my life is. no problem, right?

 

GOALS.

I need up update with goals. thinking about them. will update.

um something something run faster something something do push-ups and yoga something and also don't eat too much. something.

 

Goal 1: Every Day Things:
* log every day food
* do push-ups every day. I don't care if it's counter. do them.
* do over the head leg butt stretches. Like THESE: (really PLOUGH POSE). When I do this right now, it really emphasizes the tight spots in my hips and hamstrings -- so I am going to practice it for a while and see if it helps. (um, stretchy people and yogis, do you think it will help?)
* post to NF! I want to get back into the habit after my last vanished challenge. ESPECIALLY post weekly updates against goal progress. ESPECIALLY.

* use the hobobujo to track the awesomeness.

 

Goal 2: Move that BODY.
Because of my vacation week, I'm phasing this one in a little.
* Week 1 - run 2x and yoga 2x. Go to TKD as much as possible.
* Week 2 - make a vacation plan, and do it.
~~~ Ideally by this point I'll be feeling pretty awesome about running 3 miles in a row ~~~
* Week 3 and 4 - start the hal higdon intermediate 5K training program, designed to improve your 5K times. This involves running 5x a week! which is pretty intense. I'll see how it goes.

 

Goal 3: Be better at food.

this is totally vain, and I hate that I've been "DIETING" for so long but -- the 18 year old is graduating from high school and we have a big party planned for him on 7/1/17 and it's our big blended family which is totally nice and awesome but also secretly a little awkward and I would like to go into that party from a position of feeling amazing about myself. Considering you can't outrun your diet, I'm going to need to really focus on diet.

Goal INFINITY: yo, do some stuff for yourself. I mean, vacation is going to be great. Also, do a tiny thing in the yard. start a new knitting project. get the sourdough starter back out. go see wonder woman. just DO SOMETHING NICE.

 

but: HIIIIIEEEEE!

AHOY FRIENDS!

 

OK I've updated the challenge goals.

 

Week 1 is upon us!

Monday I was driving home in the rain, so I am just going to pretend like it doesn't exist. GHOST DAY.

Tuesday: yoga and TKD -- CHECK. Also I did my push-ups. I did NOT do my over the head leg butt stretch.

Wednesday: Run in the am -- CHECK, and yo, it was RAINING. like I feel totally tricked, I thought it might be kinda damp, but it RAINED on me. so tragic. I wished hard I was wearing contacts and a brimmed hat. My glasses got wet and foggy. the awfullest. I did the over the head leg butt stretch, but no pushups yet. TONIGHT.

 

The rest of the week:

Thursday - this day is going to be tricky. We have cake for Aunt Sally (she is turning 85!) in the evening, so I am not sure if I can go to tkd. Plus it's my early day, so it will be tricky to go running. HOWEVER I should be able to do some yoga. and also push-ups and over the head butt stretches.

Friday - run in the morning! I thought we might leave for vacation but that's put off, so I will do a longer run before work.

Sat - we will be motorcycling all day. Start out fresh with yoga.

Sunday - not sure where I'll end up so I'll take this as a bye.

 

THEN WEEK 2 will be vacation week. so as to get this out in the air, I am playing my exercise while motovacationing like this:

* push-ups every day

* over the head butt leg stretches every day

* yoga 2x

* running 2x

* don't be a total dick about food but recognize I will be eating a lot.

* try for walks on the days when I'm not doing another exercise. Do it for the Pokemon.

 

OK! I need to catch up with you lovelies tonight too! <3

^ the kind of stuff that keeps bringing me back

 

 

Rock those workouts, bud. Great job.

 

Haha, well, I gotta have something if I can't have regular content. Thanks bud!

 

This seems reasonable. [emoji4]

 

I try to be reasonable. Despite my very unreasonable appearance. ;)

 

 

Ok push-ups done! I was going to draw my hobobujo tonight but instead helped 13 (he was so unappreciative) get his school in order, because he's missing 2 days on a trip w his mom and is totally failing. Ugh.

Nice plan.   I agree with the others.  I love that you talk the same language as me!

And I am so excited for your vacation time.  Because you not only need it, but you deserve it.   And also... selfish, your vacay pics are always so much fun!

This is an immense panorama - sorry if it screws up the page width! WV is lovely. To get here I worked until 10pm on Friday, we were up packing until 1am, and then met our friends at 8am for an 11 hour day on the road (about 8 hours of riding, with breaks).

 

I was so tired this morning that I did NOT run. We took advantage of the best weather forecast for the week by riding 3 1/2 hours for Mexican food at a restaurant that we ate at 4 years ago so good.

 

Tomorrow I'm going to try and run - though it might be rainy. We will see!

Ooooh maaaan!   Your pics always always make me want to go vacationing with you!

 

Also, good call on not running, after only 7 hours of sleep and 11 hours being on the road.  Sheez. 

Also, also?   Driving 3.5 hours for Mexican food is ALWAYS the right choice.

 

Glad you are out and about!! :)

Went for a run today. I ran downhill out, then uphill back. I know it doesn't look like much but here it is:

Quick 2ish mikes. Hatched 2 Pokémon eggs. ;)

 

It's kind of rainy so we are sitting around but badly need to go grocery shopping. Not sure the riding I'll get in today but I'm knitting and relaxing!

I had the knitting! We did the grocery shopping and I drank too many beers while playing cards in the evening. I think I'm going to purposefully drink less beers.

 

Today I got up and did yoga. It was a surprisingly tough routine, but I did it! I have a long way to go w yoga but I'm able to hop forwards and backwards now, instead of stepping, and that feels so great.

 

We are going to go look at a rock formation as soon as everyone is moving. Yay.

Today was great, we ride around in circles for about 6 hours. Stopped for lunch at Seneca Rocks.

We anticipate a rainy day tomorrow. I'm hoping that I can get up and run before the rain, we will see! If it's wet and cold we will stay at the rental - we have snacks. My husband made a cake. Yo, we travel in excellent style.
