View Full Version : 21 Days to Beat a Rut ... Day 8

Since I've found daily and/or meal planning threads and so on very encouraging let's try this. 21 days. Set you own parameters. I'm not even setting a goal. I just need to kick things up a bit. Stir up some enthusiasm.

There's no good reason for me to have an off plan day in 3 measly weeks. Is there?
Here's my general plan ...1400 cals of superfoods with 150 gms of protein (on average), some jogging in each daily walk and a four day weight lifting split with heavier weights.

Anybody in? It's only three weeks. Who knows what kind of new habits we can form!

And it doesn't matter if you're a day or 2 or 7 behind just find the thread for day 21
and begin. There will always be a link to the next day, so that you can progress along with everyone else.

My house is going to be a hub-bub this afternoon so I'll have to watch the nervous munchies. Maybe someone will go for a walk with me. Hopefully, when all is said and done, I'll be able to do a nice relaxing chest and triceps later.

My shake will be chocolate very soon.
My lunch is the same as yesterday and we should have salmon for supper.

L: not sure yet, probably a good-sized salad
D: Greek dinner at my sister's house - Mother's Day Dinner - crackers, not low-fat dip, vegetables, chips, salsa - salad, wine, stuffed peppers, potatoes - low-fat ice cream w/strawberries and chocolate sauce

E: Nothing
W: 64 oz (including plain iced tea)

Here's my assessment of the first two weeks of my challenge.

My average calories per day is 1532 with 114 gm of protein. I'm only having about 5/14 Superfoods per day.
I have walk/jogged 8 days and/or just walked 8 days.
I have done two complete sets of a four day lifting split.

I have lost 1.1 lbs.

Over calories. Under protein. Under jogged. The lifting sessions were probably under-intense and definitely too short.

As always, my first thought is what 'mighta been' ... however ... that's not too shabby at this point in my journey. A half pound a week is just fine.
I coulda done better. I coulda done worse.

Have I ingrained new habits? I don't think so. Am I more mindful of what must happen if I am to have what I want? Yes. Another week? Sure.
