MFLF wk29 Streak Pictures - NSFW

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Just Kidding- totally suitable :)
*7845:13000 Fitness Minutes- kept the Streak Alive with running, biking, 30dc, swimming (just 1day 600meters) and some random physical activity at the 2swim meets. I have 1day left of the 30dc and I am so looking forward to switching it up. I'm planning 30days of dance!






*158.91: 360Miles to Jog
*Met 148Days:Drink @least 8glasses of water daily
*Met 120Days: Eat @least 5freggies daily- I was closer this week w/4freggies 3days
*Met 111Days:Eat @least 60g of Protein daily
*Met 6wk: Maintain caloric deficit of 3500 weekly Interesting tidbit- I have lost 8lbs since the beginning of the year and I have only met this goal 6wks. I almost hate that this caloric deficit thing may be an accurate measure of weight loss because it is really difficult for me to do.
*Met 132Days:Sleep 7-9hrs nightly
*Met27 of 29Wks: Blog Weekly
*The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, sequel to The Maze Runner. I'm still intrigued by this series. I just don't know where it's headed. I feel like I should get it already, but I don't! It's much more vague than the other dystopian ya I've read and I kinda like that!: Read a Book Weekly

*Not sure that I mentioned we finally finished the Fargo tv series. I really enjoyed it. I mean the cast is fantastic. The comedy is just dark enough plus Colin Hanks is adorable. :Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows

MFLF wk28 The Start of a New Streak?

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

7381:13000 Fitness Minutes : No swimming, barely doing my 30day challenges, but I did work a swim meet and go dancing Saturday. I also got myself in gear Monday and Tuesday.


I'm thinking this is doable and I can totally keep my act together. I have 6days left of my 30day challenge. I have through August to swim. I can run any time the weather is agreeable. I can keep my two day streak alive right?!
152.13: 360Miles to Jog
Met 141Days:Drink @least 8glasses of water daily
Met 119Days: Eat @least 5freggies daily
Met 106Days:Eat @least 60g of Protein daily
Not even close: Met 6wk: Maintain caloric deficit of 3500 weekly
Met 127Days:Sleep 7-9hrs nightly

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, I really liked this book. It was a quick paced novel that read like Hemingway or Fitzgerald meets Love Actually. A very nice break from those overwrought ya love stories: Read a Book Weekly

Have I told you to watch Playing House? Download that sh!t now. It's freaking hilarious. Also I am turning into my grandma and watching a lot of Masterpiece Mystery.: Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows

    If my patooty is getting up at 5:30 (upped from 4:57 as I no longer have prep course) to workout AND study for the bar, YOU CAN DO IT. I KNOW YOU CAN. I BELIEVE IN YOU.

Also, dancing for the win.

Friday, July 11, 2014

More Fun Less Fear Half Year

Saturday, July 05, 2014

6433: 13000 Fitness Minutes: About an hour short of what I need for exactly halfway to my goal.
1600meters swam this week +30day challenges+Dancing Shiva yoga sequence. I'm trying to work my way up to crow. I can hold a baby crow/duck pose for a few seconds, but my face seems in peril of smashing into the mat.
144.33:360Miles to Jog
Met 130Days: Drink @least 8glasses of water daily
Met 116Days: Eat @least 5freggies daily
Met 98Days: Eat @least 60g of Protein daily
3000deficit this week. Met 6wk: Maintain caloric deficit of 3500 weekly

The Maze Runner by James Dashner very interesting, I'm definitely reading the rest of this series and probably watching the movie. The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde is delightful. I love Jasper Fforde books. He's just so inventive.

Read a Book Weekly

Just finishedThe Escape Artist on PBS starring David Tennant. This guy is great at everything he does. I'm just waiting for him to start scooping up Emmys, Globes, and every other American award he deserves especially now that he's starring in an Americanized version of Broadchurch.: Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows

Measure inches lost monthly by a snug pair of jeans: I can see some changes from the beginning of the year. Not so much from a month ago. I know I'm down jean sizes from the beginning of the year and some weight. The scale hasn't been moving much since May. I still don't really limit myself much dietwise and because of that I don't know that I'm ever going to see the changes I want to see. Mostly I'm happy with how I look/feel. I'm strong and I'm not uncomfortable with people seeing me in a swimsuit. So there's that.

    Would love to hear what you think about the rest of the Maze runner series! I only read the first one and I'm still iffy on it.

And soooo jealous of your sleep! What is your secret?!

Looks like you're blazing through your goals! Keep up the great work!

MFLF wk25

Thursday, June 26, 2014

6135: 13000 Fitness Minutes Started several 30day challenges about 10days ago for some bodyweight strength training. Been really feeling it in my back.
144.33:360Miles to Jog I have also been swimming! 1200meters this week. I know that's not much, but I'm not much of a swimmer.
Met 124Days: Drink @least 8glasses of water daily
Met 114Days: Eat @least 5freggies daily
Met 96Days: Eat @least 60g of Protein daily
YIKES! I have been having some real weird binges lately: Met 6wk: Maintain caloric deficit of 3500 weekly
Met 112Days: Sleep 7-9hrs nightly
Wk25 Met23: Blog Weekly

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green: Not great. Not bad. Don't let anyone fool you, it is exactly like his other books. Selfish/ironic teenagers pretending to deal with loss and there's a road trip.

After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick the sequel to Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie (which I thoroughly enjoyed) is not as tug at your heartstrings, but still a very good read about a boy navigating his 8th grade year.

Florence & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo- this was an adorable little book about a cynical (read lonely and misfit) girl and a squirrel turned poet. It was sprinkled with adorable illustrations. I quite liked it.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell- a really beautiful story written by someone who must remember what it is to be young and in love and scared of losing that feeling.

I went on a little YA spree. I've actually got 2 more YA to read before diving into a "grown up" novel: Read a Book Biweekly

Trying to catch up on the glorious darkness that is Hannibal.: Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows

I had an interview for HR administrative assistant, but I haven't heard anything yet UPDATE: I did not get it b/c they hired internally, but my friend that is the president's assistant told me we had the same scores, but they believed she would require less training.
I am contemplating searching for a part time retail job. I kinda miss retail. I would like to get back into something more creative. Make Career Movements

    Hiring internally is only good when you are the internal. Sorry about the miss. Boo.

I love swimming. I have no style or formality to it, but I am Ariel. Seriously. My family has had a lake cottage since my dad was... 5? Anyway, the year we're born, we are dunked. And addicted. We love water. I am aching to be in the lake. A few more weeks and I'll be there. I'm so excited. YAY FOR SWIMMING!
