  1. Challenge is over, here's my update (copy and pasted from the top reporting-in thread:) Misugrrl, reporting in. These were my 3 main goals for my quest: Drop roughly 10 lbs in this window of time. 10 lbs is totes doable in 6 weeks I think. Eat more proteins and healthy fats; trim carbs out of my diet even further. I have PCOS, so this is something I’ve been working on, albeit slowly, for the last few years. I’d like to see a measurable change in this particular aspect of my journey. Increase the weight levels of my current pathetic strength training. All heroes need muscles - even

All heroes need muscles - even short adorable nerdgirls such as myself. How I did: I dropped 7 pounds. But more imp
  3. August 30th, and no clue what day of the challenge we're on. But it's the start of Labor Day weekend, so we're definitely nearing the end of my first challenge! The days continue to be hectic for me. Yesterday was so insane, with driving roughly 400 miles round trip and handling things at home, that by the time I got home and everyone was settled in, and I made dinner, I literally conked out. All I know is, it was around 7:30-ish, I was watching Big Bang Theory, it went on commercial break, I changed the channel to see what else was on, saw Iron Man 2 was just starting, so I hit RECORD on my
  4. DAY (insert whatever day of the challenge today is, I seriously have lost track), or I'll just call it August 27th! What a week. Seriously. WHAT A WEEK. Things have been stressful at home, but going really well in others. So things are all still in shift, but I've been sticking to my guns on this challenge, which is getting easier and easier. Why? Because I'm seeing results. Yes yes, I'm seeing results. I've got my workout logs written down, but I'll have to upload them later. I'm progressing nicely on my strength training, and am proud of how much I can do. I am still relatively weak
  5. I have no idea what day of the challenge today is. This week has been *insane*. IN-FREAKING-SANE. So, I'm going to keep it short and sweet. No workout the 19th. Yes workout the 20th. No workout the 21st. Yes workout the 22nd (yesterday). Not sure about today. Food has been not-totally-on-point, but not terribly bad either. It's been a really rough week. Here are my notes from the 20th and 22nd. I think I'm going to focus more on strength training, and I'll throw in cardio randomly when I have energy. Things are in flux for me again. Lots of big changes occurring, some not so
  6. *big hug* Its ok, handsome. Next week, you'll kick ass.
  7. C'mon week 3? 4? I've totally lost track!

      this is already the start of week 4, time sure is flying!

  8. And "Breakfast Club" ... And yes, the meal was delicious, if I do say so myself, teehee
  9. Days 19 and 20 ended up being rest days as well. Day 19 (Friday), I had planned a special date with a picnic at the movies in the park event where we live. However, the rain decided to spoil that. No matter, had an awesome picnic in the living room! Food was good, but no workout. Day 20 (Saturday), was a very rough day for me. Started the day out around 430 in the morning, awakened by a raging migraine. I finally quit trying to sleep and couldn't lay down, as laying down only made the pain worse. It was a very slow morning, with some coffee which helped some, and 2 exedrine for migraine ta
  10. Ate a little bit like a piggy. I'm thinking, today was not an intermittent fasting day. :D

      If there's still a fasting period then it's still intermittent fasting :P

      I like how you think! :)

  11. Day 18 wrapped up with lots of food. I just had to eat, and ended up eating a hearty salad, chock full of red beans, chick peas, ham and other goodies. Lots of fuel. I needed it because today I did strength training. Here are my notes: Not sure about dinner. When I got home from the gym, I had a small banana and not-a-quite-full-protein shake. I'm pretty tired. I feel I worked out kinda hard. I'm a bit sore already. Good end to the day.
  12. I am really low on energy today. I think its because of IF and how I may not be implementing it correctly. I had a naughty breakfast in the hopes it would help boost my energy (it has yay) but I feel I'll need more. I plan to strength train today, and I know I don't have enough energy to get in a good workout. I was wondering of anyone had any suggestions for an energy-packing lunch? I was thinking cottage cheese mixed with a bit of my protein powder, and a whole peach, sliced up. To me, that sounds like a wonderful idea, but I need to make sure it gives me the energy I need because I fai
  13. Don't beat yourself up. The first step to change is being mindful of your habits. Lasting change requires baby steps. You might find skipping just 1 meal a day works out for you. I started fasting (which I didn't even know this was a 'thing' - it is something I just started doing on my own a few years back) by simply not eating lunch, and having small things instead, like a yogurt, or a milk and piece of fruit. I'm not really one to eat breakfast usually, so a typical day for me (since I was a child) doesn't normally include breakfast, unless I wake up super freaking hungry (as I did today).
  14. Day 17 = rest day. Food was about the same, engaged in intermittent fasting. I was an angel. I was being really good, until this morning.... DAY 18 !!!! So. Confession. I just inhaled a sausage egg and cheese mcmuffin from McDonald's. AND I am snarfing down the hashbrown as I type this. BUT LET ME EXPLAIN!!! I woke up this morning, kinda sorta hungry. But feeling super weak. I even told my guy, I don't feel I have the energy to strength train later. On the drive to work, I started getting really hungry. As I was pulling off the highway onto the road my office is on, I made the d
  15. Stacee: Clothes shopping is a mind trip every time I go. I do the same - I gravitate to my old sizes, because the newer sizes just don't look like they'd fit. I have to be emotionally prepared to shop - I can't just walk into a store on a whim and shop. Its too....much. If that makes sense? It's crazy, and I am hoping that the mind catches up with the body soon. Shutupandsquat: When you work out, do you have days where you focus on one thing, say cardio, and then days where you focus on another, like strength training? If so, maybe you could purchase some weights and do some strength
