    339 dares, 258 w ec. 694 day streak


      Last week
      44 miles. 1950 cals average. 0 drinks (well, less then a tablespoon of eggnog I made to test it). I can't be mad at this, I am super stressed atm so even maintenance is a victory.

        I thought this was a thing that wouldn't happen with the new job...


          Maintenance is victory! You shall prevail. I think the secret to success may very well be the understanding that doing even a little bit when you're on a low ebb is progress. Too many people ditch exercise because they get disappointed in their inability to maintain their perfect routine over a long stretch of time.

          I'm sending you good wishes and support. I'd send hugs too, but I'm afraid I might get a turning kick in the gut for inappropriate behaviour : D

            and thanks, alleycat

            holiday stress split version wanted to speak to grownups that aren't customers

            walked the 6 miles to go to my class. She had sled out as part of our circuit and let me put 150lbs on it (on top of 20 that she had on as "acceptable for everyone in class)... but no more bc she couldn't keep an eye on me w everyone, boohiss lol. 6 times across room w that. Some battle rope, burpees, plank up downs, ball slams in 45 sec intervals.

            Bit of abs (threw in my high crunches for advent), some basic dumbell work, balancing stuff, and 100 bridges (50 w 20kg bag on me, bc I said 8kg bag was too easy lol). Then some good stretching...and then out for coffee snd a cheese platter w trainer and 2 of the gals from class.

              That sounds like fun!


                I didn't know it was possible to do bridges with a weight. I'm guessing you have a superhero identity we don't know about.


                  It was, HellYeah, I am amused I get included bc I am the youngest by abt 10 years lol. And Joomju, it's like hip thrusts but shoulders on floor instead of a bench.

                      I guess you do not have a cat... Un-intended bridges or planks with an additional 5 Kgs (yeah, Mademoiselle Luna is a Chartreux, those are not itty bitty kitties) is quite common in my household!


                        Lol dad's cat who likes to hell w planks is abt that size. Thankfully my Shadow is 3-4 kilo only.

                        holiday stress split version plan change bc doms
                        My shins hurt, and glutes (esp sides), and I cannot cripple self atm bc work. So I decided to not do a barbell day or jump around to be nice to legs. (And thank god, bc I barely broke a sweat so the fact that I forgot to put bra in gym bag and had to put sport bra back on is not completely gross (thank goodness I have high neck sweater today also so sport bra doesn't show...did not want to spend what we'd charge for a bra LOL).)

                          Food wise, this is clearly a maintenance week. I have defeated myself w poor planning a few times - my healthy dinner plan was "too much work" (cleaning/sauteeing 10oz of hard) to bear at the end of the day, so I had boxed mac and cheese w extra cheese instesd....I planned a super light lunch to balance pizza dinner and instead added 2 pkg of jalapeno cheetos from vending machine (I sence a thread here, it seems fake orange cheese is comforting somehow) (still had pizza). Going to buy some no effort grabables today (deli meats, fruit, these ore ida egg microwave nonsense things Im obsessed with atm, more cheese) and make some more delicious then usual protein bars (sugary almond butter w dried cherries and chocolate chips added) and just be zen about it.

                          This is the first Xmas in retail in the last 15 years that has not involved 3-6 liters of gin (+ whatever else when out) between Thanksgiving and Xmas so just not doing that this month is a huge diet win. (Am only drinking at social occations, not at home except eggnog on Xmas, this month.)

                          New hiit workout no one is watching lv 1

                          Have learned that not only are only some of my sport bras jump worthy, my sweat pants are much less comfy then leggings for such bc, basically, my butt and thighs require their own sports bra equivalent to not smack each other around. Was not an enjoyable discovery.

                          Did my societal-beauty-standards torture - basic guy type clear manicure (mostly bc when I try to clean up hangnails myself I end up a bloody mess) and eyebrow threading (bc that is an easier way to appear "well groomed" then wasting time every day w makeup past mascara and MAYBE lipgloss if I am feeling sassy) - and am going to hide on couch once I secure groceries.

                            Holiday stress split version Meh!
                            wanted to get up early and do lifts at my gym. Rainy day made me lazy. Then thought about going to gym near job, but, told colleague I would make an appearance at her bday thing after work...30 min in opposite direction from work to home. I will NOT want to drag gym bag in rain to a bar wayfuck downtown. I barely want to drag self but, I need to maintain friendships better so I will make an appearance at least..... (there is prolly a 50$ uber in my future bc after a few drinks the subway is alone is daunting).
