~*~ WTF Challenge 10/11 - 10/15 ~*~

Part 1- EXERCISE AND NUTRITION

During my last WTF template dates, I was able to accomplish _____ as far as exercise goes, and I was most proud when I _____.

As far as nutrition goes, I was glad that I _____ but I still want to concentrate on improving _____.

This week, my go-to snack will be _____.
My go-to exercise will be _____.

I am going to attempt to _____ because I already know that I can do _____.

Encourage me by _____.

When I find myself about to make a bad or questionable decision as far as nurtition and workouts, I will simply ask myself... WTF???

Part 2- THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

Try to think of things that you usually spend money on during the holidays, and see if you can find a way to save money there, by making them in your specially set aside 'me-time'. Blog about what you figure out or what you think you might attempt to do. This may also keep you from picking up too much extra candies and goodies in the season aisles that will end up in your tummy.

DO NOT FORGET YOUR WEEKLY RITUAL QUIET TIME, DO IT AGAIN. YES, AGAIN.

~*~ WTF??? Template for 9/28-10/3 ~*~


List everything you did for exercise since 9/20. You can list this as minutes, exercises, miles, DVDs- or everything, but list it all out right here:
________________________________________

Because you were able to do all of that last week, what can you do between now and Sunday?
______________________________________

What is your rainy day (backup) plan?
____________

How much time will you devote to exercise between now and Sunday?
___________

Choose a power food for the week. Something you can use as a go-to healthy snack, or a meal that gives you lots of fuel.
_________________________

Repeat the ritual that you created for yourself last week. It's only consistent 'me time' if you do it every week consistently. Tell us what you are going to do for yourself this week.
__________________________________

These are the 3 excuses I cannot use this week!
1.
2.

~*~ WTF??? Check in for 9/20-9/25 ~*~
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon Recap of last week’s goals:
emoticon Stay within my calorie, protein, fat and carb ranges – for the most part, I did it. There were a couple days where I was over (didn’t help that all my meals from Friday-Sunday were out of the house!)
emoticon Take my supplements every day – did it every day since Wednesday! Woot!

emoticon Have at least 4 breakfast smoothies –I had 3, due to poor planning and running out of yogurt
emoticon Bring lunches from home at least 4 times – managed 3, poor planning again
emoticon Strength train 3x – managed 2x, Monday and Thursday
emoticon Run 3x –gulp, managed 1x, Thursday
emoticon Zumba Monday –check!
emoticon Yoga Saturday –check!
emoticon I did not have ice cream OR a blizzard!

emoticon BONUS CHALLENGE: I drank 3461 calories from Monday, September 13-Sunday, September 19. I had more Starbucks than I should’ve, I had more alcohol than I normally do (I was out for girls’ night Saturday), and the number still doesn’t seem bad to me, especially considering I drink my breakfast!
emoticon I MADE TIME TO:
*Start a fun project – I signed up and bought the kit for a cake decorating class that I’m taking for the month of October!
*Decided that I’m going to work on building my recipe collection over winter with lots of healthy options for all courses – entrees, desserts, appetizers, sides, etc, etc.


emoticon emoticon Part One - Exercise & Nutrition!

Last week, I was able to bring lunch from home three times and made it to zumba and yoga, which I am most proud of.

This week, I know that I will be able to step up my nutrition game even more, and get more exercise in!

emoticon My exercise focus this week will be on starting the new strength training routine I created this morning, getting in running twice, and going to zumba and yoga. I need to step it up and change it up if I want to see results!

emoticon My nutrition focus this week will be on cutting down pre-prepared (read: take out) foods and using my healthy dinner recipes!

My awesome new clothing in smaller sizes is my reason for being extra determined this week. I want to be able to continue rocking them, and buy more clothing like them!


emoticon Part Two - Happiness and Well-being

Come up with an idea for a ritual that you can do for yourself once a week, whether it is a run, a bubble bath, a meal, an indulgence, anything.

*My ritual is my yoga class. I had to stop it for a year because of funds, but I’m making room in my budget, because I feel so much more balanced and relaxed when I go once a week.*


Motivate me this week by asking how my meals are tasting and my muscles are feeling, since I’m switching up my ST routine!

emoticon WTF??? Entry Card- Template for 9/15-9/19 emoticon

emoticon Starting Weight: 147.5 lbs
emoticon Starting Measurements: (choose any 4 or more- or use the sames ones as me- whatev)
Measure your Waist – 26.75”
Measure your Hips – 35.75”
Measure your Thigh – 24”
Measure your Calf – 15.25”
Measure your Upper Arm – 11”
Measure your Boobies – 36”
Current BMI: 22.4

emoticon During this challenge, I have a general goal of getting back down to the low-140s and reducing my body fat %.

emoticon My biggest challenge will undoubtedly be stress – I tend to eat out more, buy more Starbucks, and exercise less when I’m really stressed!

emoticon My nutrition goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on staying within all my ranges, but without focusing on what proportion is fat, protein, carbs, etc, and taking my supplements consistently!

emoticon My cardio goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on increasing speed and endurance running, and getting back into my weekly zumba class!

emoticon My strength training goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on getting 3 strength training sessions in per week, and changing up my ST routine in October (I’m very bad when it comes to changing it up!).

emoticon My rest and flexibility goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on getting to my yoga class every Saturday morning (8:30 a.m. class – gulp!) and having nice long stretches after all workouts.

emoticon PART ONE - DIET & EXERCISE emoticon

Between now and 9/19, I am going to:
emoticon Stay within my calorie, protein, fat and carb ranges
emoticon Take my supplements every day
emoticon Have at least 4 breakfast smoothies
emoticon Bring lunches from home at least 4 times
emoticon Strength train 3 times
emoticon Run 3 times
emoticon Yoga Saturday

Between now and 9/19, I am not going to
emoticon Have ice cream or a blizzard (I had my first blizzard a month ago….those things are the devil!)
emoticon Overindulge

These 3 excuses will be unusable for the duration of this template
emoticon I have a headache (unless it’s a migraine!)
emoticon I’m tired
emoticon The weather is not conducive to working out

***BONUS CHALLENGE- ADD UP HOW MANY CALORIES YOU *DRINK* THIS WEEK! (NON ALCOHOLIC AND ALCOHOLIC ALIKE!) I’m in!

You can motivate me by asking me how my workouts are going, how my smoothies are tasting, and if I remembered to take my supplements!

emoticon PART TWO - THE REST OF YOUR LIFE emoticon


This week, I will take the time to do one of the following just for me:

A. complete a fun project
B. start a fun project
C. brainstorm ideas for something you can do just for yourself over the winter, something that will take a semi-long time to complete. - Like make your own new bag, or put together a family photo album, or redecorate a room, or start a journal, or make a quilt, etc
D. Make a list of things you loved as a child but have not done or participated in for a very long time. See which ones you can incorporate into your grownup life.
E. Volunteer.

*Practice setting time aside for yourself, either every day or once a week, and allow yourself to be selfish for a little while, and recharge, so you can better handle the rest of your life and be better for your family or job and friends.
