  1. Day 1 & 2 Hi everyone, I hope everyone has a decent start to their challenge! Day 1 Sunday was my partner's birthday, so I spent that with her instead of the challenge. We played Jackbox with some friends, went out for a car ride, and drank a lot of caffeine. It was a really good day. Day 2 I woke up, and refreshed myself on form for some strength exercises. When I looked up the NF dumbbell routine, I quickly discarded it because of one reason: push-ups. I cannot, never have been able to do push-ups, even at my fittest. Modified push-ups have
  2. Thank you, and you're right, doing it is the real challenge. Thanks for following
  3. You're totally right, just getting the bike in working order was a big step and now I just have to use it! It is hot here in Los Angeles (the valley), so I'll probably stick to mornings if I want to bike ride. Luckily, I tolerate walking in the heat pretty well, at least at first. I may redact that statement when my walks start getting longer
  4. Hi Hazard! Just curious, why were the stats discontinued? Were folks getting caught up in them?
  5. Thank you everyone! I promise all these responses are very motivating for me. I'm excited to see everyone's challenges as well I got back on my bike after a couple of months today. Filled the tires, started off gentle, then biked for 15 minutes. I'm pretty sure I didn't cool down properly because I feel pretty nauseous at the moment. I made sure to bike before I ate, but it was probably just a shock to my system. At least I can walk just fine! Hah. For my strength routine, the first week might look a bit goofy as my partner & I are going camping for 4
  6. Hello, fellow level 1 (ignore the signature)! You & I will both be bike riding, so I'll be checking in on your posts when the challenge starts Good luck to both of us!
  7. Hello folks! Many years ago, I used to post in this forum. I was a casual poster, but tried a few challenges. A lot has changed since I was last here, so it seems fitting to return to the start line. I have unfortunately dropped the ball on my general health. I got distracted with my career, love life, and anxiety chewed away at my remaining will. I used to be of average health, now I'm back to my pre-fitness levels of obesity & performance. I'm not putting myself down for it. I simply have postponed taking action longer than I'd like. No more of that! Right now is the perfect
  8. Day 10. Walking: + 1 hour 47 minutes, + 5.37 miles
  9. This thing is pretty cool. I was never in sports so this is like... the first "health" team I've been in. It's the perfect balance of independence and team motivation for me :] logging in and seeing a low mile day makes me want to make that number bigger. Although that's probably because people just haven't been logging yet, but either way it works on my brain
  10. Day 9. Walking: + 40 minutes, +1.7 miles Organizing: + 1 Cleaned out another drawer and finally put my clean clothes inside for the first time... ever. Today was a productive day. I woke up and cooked, did laundry, and my friend came over. She asked if I wanted to eat out, and I said that I'd cook for her. She happily accepted that. We walked to the grocery, she picked out the steak and veggies (sauteed brocolli & "fried" tomatoes), and we ended up cooking together. This was the friend that was initially unsupportive, so it quietly felt like a big deal to me. It seemed pretty normal
  11. Day 8. Hiking: + 1 hour 8 minutes, + 2.77 miles Organizing: + 1 Got rid of some recycling. Will need multiple trips cause motorcycle. The last two days, the Eeyore demons got the best of me. Today is time for some Tigger demons. I didn't get out of bed yesterday. Not once. Didn't eat. There's some stuff going on in my life that I don't feel in control of, so it's... hard. It's been 6 weeks of eating paleo today. I honestly thought my mood would improve by now. That makes me suspect it's not really about my physical health, which... makes it harder. That's part of what I've been sulking abo
  12. Day 7: Weekly Progress Walking Totals: 3:08:13 total time. Success! 8.6 total miles Organizing: 6/7 days Workout: 1/2 days Hiking: 0/1 days "Don't ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday."
  13. I probably can. It's mostly the jumping jacks. I could just do a replacement. But really, I just want to fix my sleep schedule. I have to align it with school by the time February rolls around. I'm skeptical to the idea that sleeping at a certain time is healthier than another, but I can't argue with the need for more sun. And, it's just annoying to have shops closed all the time.
  14. Day 5. Walking: +17 minutes, + 0.7 miles Organizing: + 2 Cleared out two drawers of my dresser. Two more to go. For the first time since moving here I can actually put my clean clothes away. Cripes. Workout: + 1 3 sets of: squats x20 +15 lb knee push-ups x7 walking lunges x10 +15 lb dumbbell rows x10 +15 lb 70 second planks jumping jacks x30 I hate lunges. That is all. (It's not raining tomorrow so it's gonna be hike day! I'm actually pretty excited.)
