  1. I wish I could check in on my phone as I certainly spend more online time on that during waiting moments. Waiting while picking kids up, waiting in line at the bank, etc. Thanks guys for the encouragement! Feels great to be back here!! This week's meal plan is simple. SOUP! As we have all come down with a nasty cold!! Realistically we also had pancakes, and leftovers because we need the fridge to be cleaned out so we can go away for 5 days this weekend into next week! While we are away I'm taking a small cooler and stopping at the grocery store so we don't need to eat out on the drives. Onc
  2. Hey everyone! Missed you all! I've let "life" take control in some good ways and not so good ways so I'm back and ready to kick my own butt back into shape because I need it and my health needs it. In the past year I've gained back 15 pounds after having lost 10 last year. I know this isn't a lot but I'm not in a dangerous category I just need to lose weight to bring health issues back into control. I find myself now being more out of shape and feeling like my body is less capable than it was last year. I'm very grateful to have been able to eat foods I wasn't able to in a long time, to not
  3. It's hard to get back on track! I'm doing good on the water (for now) I know I always start strong with this and then taper off. I'm not doing so good with the eating healthy. Feels like all the fast to make foods are unhealthy. I like cheese and salad dressing and bread. I like cream of soups and other "unhealthy" things. It's saddens me.
  4. Perfect I will see if I can get that bar at the bottom! I'm in Sask! So not far at all! The new fitbit the Charge HR has a heart rate monitor. I just have the fitbit one and it doesn't but thats okay for me.
  5. First, how did you all get the tracker bars at the bottom? Second, Nikki your Canadian we need to be connect! And I agree eating healthy is harder than working out but without a car for possibly weeks working out has now become harder as I don't like to do it at home. (I did get half an hour in today!) I love the fitbit challenges. they really do push me but gently. Which is partially what I need. They remind to get up from the computer and go for a short walk, occassionally I'll run the stairs just because I can and I wasn't doing that before the challenges. I'm never #1 but one day I wil
  6. Looking forward to hearing how your challenge is going!
  7. I relate to you. Can't wait to see how your do in this challenge!
  8. you can do it! Medical issues suck but glad to hear your first day was mostly good.
  9. This week my brave was a few things. I asked for the amount I actually charge for my services without any discounts. I sold $2,500! Way more than the $500 I would have usually taken with a bunch of excuses to myself on why I wasn't worth what I charged. Then, I'm finding courage to stand up for myself and research when I feel backed into a corner with no options. But I have options and I deserve more information and respect than I'm being given and I'm fighting for that. Lastly, I'm having the courage to start again and keep trying. Every time I start I get knocked down and reset, I am one
  10. Hey all! Life has been kicking my butt again and causing me to give up on lots of my goals. I've had enough hospitals and illnesses and it's time to battle myself and get back on track. I will not be scoring myself this round as I beat myself up too much about the ratings and that's not my goal. Instead I will be keeping track with a spreadsheet. I will share it here weekly and will write down my successes and failure daily. I also track on myfitnesspal and fitbit so those are huge helps. Goal 1: Take vitamins and supplements daily. I've been so relaxed on this and I now feel sluggish and ti
  11. Thanks Teros, I want to simplify how I play the game of life this round, I always over complicate it. Sugar I was figuring out still. I think no (added) sugar 5 days a week will be the way I go this round just to keep it simple yet flexible since its summer. i did check out the accountabilibuddies groups and I don't really fit in with any of them. Today was good, the only thing I didn't accomplish was sugar but this will have to count for 1 of my 2 days.
  12. I've been making great strides at developing new habits, make great changes and evolving into a better me. After a short break from the forums and challenges I'm so ready to jump back in I previously sucked at updating these so I'd love to be held accountable to checking in often, as I love the community. My end of year summer goal is to lose 20lbs. I would like to achieve this at the very latest of September 15. I want to do this on my own, no relying on other people to help me. In case the scale doesn't move, my ultimate goal is to lose my belly fat which exists due to pregnancy an
  13. I will not let perfection control me or hinder any progress.

  14. Looking at it like a journal is an amazing idea. I shall change my mindset about this forum especially for the next challenge. I do love it here I just need a bit more in real life support too. I also wish that this site was available on my cell phone. Everytime I try to use it on my phone it crashes. I can read the blogs but I can't access the forums. If I could I could guarantee a daily check in and not falling off the wagon as much. I'm always on my phone, I don't always get to the computer. I sadly live in a condo and the people who live below me are almost always home so there are a
  15. In many ways I feel like the nerd fitness world and my real world are separated and easy to forget about. I feel the need for more support and accountability in real life. My husband couldn't care less what my goals are he wants x,y and z and doesn't care that it's not something I don't want to be eating or doing. It's so frustrating. I don't have friends that are able to be supportive and my family isn't understanding on such goals so I need him but he's not there for me. The computer and the online world is so easy to distance yourself from. I have a wonderful trainer who sadly I cannot w
  16. Wonder what the mantra was back in Marilyn Monroe's time. Maybe we could learn from it.... Personally, I don't do this to be skinny or sexy or whatever. Yes, of course I'd love to look stellar in a bikini, yes of course I'm currently working on dropping by body fat percentage, yes or course I'm doing those things. But I'm not doing those things to look sexy for anyone but me. I'm not doing them for other people's approval. I'm here to make ME feel better. My body fat is getting in the way of things I'd like to do, and honestly I don't have a lot of it. My current health situation isn't even
  17. I really enjoyed that thread and minus my partner needing to go for surgery it's basically the same story around here. Very very glad it's temporary and I've been saying to myself everyday since Tuesday - this soon will be over and you won't even remember it! We are getting closer. The two sickies seem to be better. Still not eating much at all and no energy but they can hold down tiny amounts of food and decent amounts of liquids. However now it's hit me HARD. I'm missing dance tonight but that's not a big deal. Hubby is home now and I can tag team so we can both rest. All plans were cance
  18. Well I was doing amazingly good and then last weekend happened. I didn't track most of last week I was so busy I'm not sure I ate or drank anything to even track. Then the weekend was even more chaotic with stress and business. Then this week the flu has hit my house. For most people that isn't a big deal but in this house it is due to other health issues within the kids. Hubby refuses to stay home and help when the kids are sick so I'm up all night and day with the kids and now it's wiping me out. Juicing happened for 1/2 of last week then I just grew tired of it and made smoothies for the
  19. We do food prep every Sunday but then I find by the end of the week I'm bored with what I made and I'm questioning how good i is so I'm going to throw in a Thursday as a food prep day too.
  20. No I havent seen the bloodwork yet cant get in for an appointment for another two - three weeks.
  21. I've sorta lost a bit of ground the first half of this week. I was doing good but now I'm just so tired it's getting hard to keep up. I didn't do yoga tuesday so I missed 1 workout so far and I haven't been drinking my juices the last 2 days, mostly because this batch was made with all the leftover stuff and it came out really strong and greeny and not very appetizing so it's much much harder to drink. Hoping to catch up on my juices and make-up the missed workout on saturday. Hubby won't be happy I'm dragging him to the gym again. I've been getting in lots of photography time but that
  22. I do have an iron deficiency but I take an iron supplement and I make sure I'm consuming lots of iron so I wouldn't think that is the only problem. Seriously ladywildross don't beat yourself up, breathe and keep going!
  23. I'm keeping up today. Had one tired spell but snapped out of it alright. Wishing this last child would go to bed though so that I could too.
