    Mac's Slow Learnin'

    Late, late, always late! But, I started my new challenge thread, finally. Mebbe I see you over there? And I will get caught up on folks' new challenges over the weekend!​

    Keeping on Mac-ing on

    I am starting late, but not as late as it seems: I was on vacay at the start of this challenge, but I've been "on it" since Tuesday, so I only missed Monday, really. However, by missing the opening of the challenge, I didn't get my starting weights and measures in, and I'm sure I sacrificed some early momentum. Time to make up for lost time!! Goal 1 (or are they supposed to be quests now? I can't keep up): Keep on keeping on So, this is sort of the theme of this challenge for me: keep doing what's working. For me, that is limited grains and very limited sugar, a little bit of dairy, a litt

    OMG, I thought that my place holder thread had failed to post, and then I was so vexed and crazy busy that I didn't have the wherewithall all week to come back and start over. Silly Mac! Okay, now, I'm going to write my challenge post for reals!
  4. Placeholder post! I'm on vacation through the end of the day, but I'm noodling on my challenge goals. Have a good start everyone!
  5. Hey, how was the sugar challenge at your visit to your girlfriend's parents? Did you break your streak (for a good cause)?
  6. Here's to finishing strong! Good work keeping the workout momentum going during the conference!

    Yay, end of challenge wrap-up post! Week 6 has not been so good for posting updates, but it was otherwise pretty good. With a couple of unplanned work events in the evening, I missed out on one of my five weekly workouts, but I managed four. Okay, here's the round-up: 1. 90% FTW...and track it!​ Hmm, well, I did okay with the tracking for the first 3-4 weeks, and then I just lost steam. But, I think I was pretty good at sticking to a 90% grain and sugar free ​anyway, so I don't think tracking is useful for me. This is definitely a way of eating that's good for me, so I'll stick with it.
  8. Yayyyyy!!!!! Congratulations to you both, and I hope that you have so much fun planning your wedding. Since you're already married in your minds and hearts, you can focus on having a hell of a great party. Also, the emotional if not physical reunion with your rugby-playing self sounds like fun. (that sport is too dangerous to play for real--much better to provide moral support and expertise to the team, and let them go out and get busted up!)
  9. This is a badass weekly report. That is all.
  10. Sometimes the forums posting is the commitment too far, but it sounds like you're staying focused! Good work!
  11. This is an epic workout repot! Super strong week 5!! This is some epic cross training you had going on this past week! Good luck with the hotel workouts, fellow conference-goer! Embrace the change of scenery.

    Thanks!! I'm gonna try! Maybe that's true with the tracking. And, I have NOT tracked today, but I'll do so before I go to sleep, I promise! I was good all day except that my "one bite" of the dessert at the luncheon turned into like 5 or 6 bites, while we were sitting there listening to the plenary speaker. Lesson learned for tomorrow: do not take the first bite! I did manage refuse much chocolate being offered in the various conference sessions, though. My meetings today ended a little earlier than I expected, so I hopped straight on the freeway and drove back to the gym at work to lif

    I am really trying to keep the momentum going for this last week of the challenge, but I must admit it's flagging. But, I shall rally! A brief summary: Measurements: Weight: 158.2 (159.8)--I think this is a little artificially low, though. I must have been dehydrated. Chest: 33 1/8 (33 5/8) Waist: 29 7/8 (29 7/8) Bellybutton: 33 1/4 (34 1/8) Hips: 38 1/4 (38 3/8) Thigh: 24 3/8 (24 3/8) Arm: 11 5/8 (11 3/4) So, little miniscule changes. I'm not really sure why I bother except that the accountability of posting seems like a good thing. Goals: 1. 90% FTW...and track it! Okay, I didn't track m

    Yes, I'm trying to learn to be an adult when it comes to money. I'm very good at saving money (it must be all the Scottish blood), but I suck at planning, analyzing my options, optimizing investments or basically anything that involves having to actually think about the future. If it were up to me, I'd just keep my money in the mattress. This weekend is much cooler here, so I may really try to take on a steep hike and actually make it to the top this time. I will check out the blog you recommend to keep me motivated to finish up my self-audit this challenge! Week 5 is good so far except t
  15. Too many happy emojis should never been outlawed! Or, maybe that's just the best kind of outlaw to be.
