  1. Well I'm a little late to the 4 week challenege due to some family in town but figured better start now rather than wait another 3 weeks! Here we go! Overall Goal: Lose 40 lbs Step 1 - Get to the gym at least 4x a week I recently changed jobs and am still trying to find a good sleep/working schedule that accommodates for my switching shifts. This has caused havoc on my normal gym/workout schedule. To rectify this I plan to: a- Use Sunday as a weekly plan day. Sit down with my work schedule and plan my workouts around my schedule for the week. b-Utilize home work out room. I have an entire room with everything I need for a sufficient workout. If I can't find the time to get to the gym I need to plan a workout at home. Step 2- Eat all the Veggies I work in an ER and do not get a lunch break. I can sometimes manage to take a 5 minute break to eat something that I've brought with me. I need to be more selective in my food choices and ensure I eat vegetables with every meal. a - Use Sunday to pre-pack vegetables for the week in ziplock baggies so I can grab a go. b - Try 1 new vegetarian recipe a week. Step 3 - Hydrate me! I have the tendency of being pretty dehydrated on a daily basis which I believe causes me to over eat. Need to keep hydrated. a- Bring my water bottle to work and drink at least 2 water bottles while at work. b- Drink at least 3 water bottles worth of water a day. Step 4 - Stay injury free I have a really great track record of injuring myself. In order to stay on track of my goal I will need to avoid hurting myself. a- Proper warm up and cool down every work out b- Stretching before and after working out c- Practice yoga 1x per week. That's currently all I've got! More updates to come later! ~ DrWho
  2. Hello! I'm currently in a rebuild stage of my life and looking to get back into a more regular workout routine. I recently moved to Bremerton, WA and started a new job so my life has been in total chaos for the past couple of month. I don't know many people and am looking to get a good accountability buddy via in person.. text.. email.. whatever to continue maintaining a health life style and help keep me on track and whatever other craziness life throws. I work at a hospital so my schedule can be a bit crazy so looking for someone who maybe also doesn't fit into a normal M-F 9-5 life would be great too but definitely not required! A little about me I'm 29 year old female currently working towards going back to school into a master program. Free time I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, soccer, watching hockey and football. My nerdy obsessions are Dr Who, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Walking Dead, Z Nation, Harry Potter, Stargate. Always open to checking out new nerdy items :D. Let me know if you're looking for an accountability companion and we can chat! -Dr Who
  3. Bahh bronchitis? That sucks!! Hope you start feeling better!!
  4. yay for being productive! Keep up the great work!!
  5. Sounds like you've had a great start! Sunday seems like a fun mountain biking and swimming!
  6. Sounds like you're doing great so far! Keep up the good work!
  7. Well week 1 has passed by and not the best start I'd like to say! @18ck - Thanks for the concern but my doc has given me the go ahead for majority of exercise. Even sports! I had ACL surgery for getting back to sports was my main focus. I'm taking it easy and listening to my body/knee. @Polgara19 - It's actually an app that I bought a long time ago. It's 'Ease into a 10K' I like it a lot it can use your GPS to track your miles and indicates how much time you're supposed to run reach day/week. Alright on to grading! Running this week I get a B - 2 runs. My first run was Monday and I did my normally planned run about 4 miles. Thursday I attempted to do another 4 miles but at about 1.5 miles I got some tightness in the back of my knee. I stopped did some stretching and it was still feeling tight so I called it a night. hopefully it'll feel good for next week. Food! I did not meal prep this week as I started a little late. I didn't eat too terribly this week though. Except for today, a day that I"m home and had no excuse not to eat great! Ended up going to the bar and watching football which included beer and a chili cheese burger. Cross training: I did some HIIT's today and went for a swim yesterday so I get a B for the week. Studying.... I did no studying this week! slacker! Hopefully will get some study time this week!
  8. Enjoy running in nice weather while you can! It's already turned cold and rainy in the NW! You've got some great goals! Look forward to seeing how you do!
  9. I would probably break my neck running with ice! I'm clumsy enough without extra slickness! LOL! Although you might be freezing your tail off that's quite the pretty view for your run!
  10. Great Goals! Good luck with meditation! I have never been able to get into it. My mind wanders too much! haha.
  11. Ouch! I hope you're okay! Wet leaves definitely make the ground slick! Hopefully you won't have any bumps or bruises to show for it!
  12. Well hello there! I'm a day late.. oops! I've taken a break from challenges.. mostly due to injuries..but I'm back and taking a spin with the Scouts. Little bit about me I'm a 28 year old gal living just outside of Seattle, WA. I've been plagued with injuries over the past few years (Shoulder surgery 2013 & Knee surgery 2014, 2015). I'm starting to get back to my pre injured self and looking forward to a challenge! MAIN QUEST: RUN A HALF MARATHON I was training for a half marathon prior to my knee injury and would love to continue that momentum! MISSION 1: Conclude my 10K running program. It is a 10 week program and I am currently on week 5. I would like to run at least 2-3x a week depending on how my knee is feeling to complete a 10K by the end of 6 weeks. SCORING: A: running 3x a week B: running 2x a week C: running 1x a week MISSION 2: Food!! My diet has been horrendous! I have really long work days (13-14 hour/5 days a week) Which means I have to meal plan. If I don't meal prep on Sundays that means I'm eating out for almost every meal. My goal is to meal prep every Sunday for the week. SCORING: A: 6/6 weeks prep'd B: 5/6 weeks prep'd C: 4/6 weeks prep'd MISSION 3: Cross training. Cause I can't run everyday! Dancing, swimming, biking, anything to keep active! SCORING A: 3 days of cross training a week B: 2 days of cross training a week C: 1 day of cross training/week Life Quest: I'm currently preparing to take the GRE for grad school and really need to lock some solid studying time every week. SCORING: A: 3 hours of study time a week B: 2 hours of study time a week C: 1 hour of study time a week Well I think that is all for this evening. Good luck on your challenges everyone!
  13. Yay you're alive!! That sucks that you're going to have to cut back on volleyball!! But now you'll just enjoy the times you get to play even more! Woohoo!! I wasn't crazy about the last season of Drwho.... Let me know how you like it. How'd the rest of the week go for you?
  14. Looks like week 2 is going well for you! How'd the weekend go?
