  1. LONG OVERDUE UPDATE: Okay, when last I posted, I was still preparing for the Warrior Dash and had a knee injury. To make a long story short, I COMPLETED the Warrior Dash a couple of weekends ago and knocked out my life goal successfully! However, my knee has definitely hindered my progress, especially on Goal A, so I've had to modify my strategy a little bit. Main Goal: Weigh 199 pounds. I weighed in today at 226 so I'm very, very close....about a loss of 14 pounds since the challenge started. Reminder: I started at 341. Goal A: The same, without running Some days are better th
  2. Update on the knee: Woke up today and it is much improved. I'm walking up and down stairs with no pain for the first time since before the injury. I'm going to give it until tomorrow and try to resume running. Going to get back on the weights today, too. All of my weight exercises required me to be on my feet, so I looked some up I could do while sitting down. Hopefully I'll be able to resume light running tomorrow, and with any luck I'll be back to full speed in a week..
  3. Thanks everybody! I'm already looking forward to my next goal: To be under 200 pounds!
  4. Well, had to go on my run a little earlier today....and at about the quarter mile mark I definitely felt some pain in my left knee. So I slowed down to a walk for a minute, and everything felt okay, so I went back up to a run but that did not last long at all. I came up limping pretty quickly. It would appear I sprained my left knee, and hopefully that's it. I had to cut my run short at the half mile mark. Now, since I started running 4 days ago, I have felt a little pain in this knee, but chalked it up to the fact that I've never run before. Today it's felt worse than ever. So after I
  5. That sounds great! I've started eating veggies with every meal for one reason--I like to eat, and I like to feel full (Okay, two reasons). The great thing about veggies is you can eat a ridiculous amount of them and still stay under 200 calories. For example, for lunch I'll probably have a skinless, boneless chicken breast, a can of french style green beans, and a can of sliced carrots. That is a LOT of food. Depending on the size of the chicken breast, I'm looking at a 300 calorie lunch, probably less. It's all about getting the most out of what you eat!
  6. Haha, no, there will be plenty of mud. From what I understand it's a lot shorter than Tough Mudder, and a good thing too; I don't want to kill myself first time out. I'm 4 days in on lifting; I'm primarily doing arm and upper body exercises to get my upper body strength up for the obstacles. I could really feel my arms this morning, and I know I must be doing something right if it takes me 15 minutes just to lift a cup of coffee!
  7. Thank you! A lot of my friends use MyFitnessPal, too. From what I've seen the two apps are really, really similar. I also got Nike's Running app to track my running time; I like it because it keeps track with your fastest mile, kilo, 2 miles, 5Ks, etc.
  8. Getting started is the hardest part. I'd say the 2nd hardest part is changing when you get used to a routine...that's what I'm going through now. If you can keep it up for a couple of weeks, you'll stop worrying about it as much and it just kinda becomes a good habit. I was told that for years but didn't actually believe it 'til I did it myself.
  9. I use MyNetDiary on my iPhone and you can also check it at mynetdiary.com I believe. It's a really good tool for people who are pretty OCD like me about what I'm eating. I literally want to count every calorie of food I eat to make sure I am for sure eating right, and not just thinking that I am. I've ran(well, mostly walked) a mile for 2 days straight now, and I'm going to have to make myself do it every day if I don't want to hold the group of people I'm going with behind. I'm going to go an extra quarter of a mile today!
  10. Okay, i'm a day late this time, not a few weeks, so I look forward to getting credit for this challenge! I've altered it from my previous challenge a little bit. I've had the weekend to really think about it. I'm aiming to make my individual goals more challenging but I'll be keeping my main goal from last time. Main Goal: Weigh 199 pounds. In between challenges I put on a few pounds celebrating hitting 100+ pounds down this weekend. Not many (I'm still under 100), but I had a great time at a party this weekend and I'm ready to hit the ground running on this one all over again. I st
  11. I weighed in at 236 today, and started at 341.....105 pounds down overall, and 8 inches off my waist(started at 49, currently 41). My next goal is to be under 200 pounds, which I haven't been since a teenager. Planning on relaxing this weekend and hitting the ground running when the new challenge starts next week, can't wait!
  12. Well, this isn't really the end of my challenge, but since a new six week period is coming up, I'll post my results so far. (EDIT: Derp. Forgot to include my main goal ) Main Goal: Weigh in at 199 pounds. Grade: Incomplete. There was no way I was hitting that goal in half a challenge. I doubt I'll even be there after this next challenge, but hopefully sometime before Christmas I'll get there. I started out at 265 and weighed in today at 244. Progress ftw! Goal A: One hour of elliptical 4-5 days a week. Grade: A. I set the bar way too low here. I was closer to 2 hours
  13. Well, this isn't really the end of my challenge, but since a new six week period is coming up, I'll post my results so far. Goal A: One hour of elliptical 4-5 days a week. Grade: A. I set the bar way too low here. I was closer to 2 hours most days, and I was on the elliptical 5-6 days a week for the first two weeks. I'll be making this more difficult for the next phase of my challenge. Goal B: Keep snacking impulses down to once a day. Grade: A-. For the most part, I eliminated the impulses entirely thanks to snack scheduling. My problem here is "cheat days." I record everyth
  14. Goal A: One hour of elliptical 4-5 days a week. Last week was the first week I barely hit that goal. I had a rough weekend, but I managed to snap out of it and reach it on Friday. Goal B: Keep snacking impulses down to once a day. Still pretty good here, yesterday was actually my hardest day to date in this department. Visited my parents and they had two buckets filled with muscadine grapes, not exactly the most unhealthy thing in the world, but there is the whole principle of the matter. Goal C: No more than 9 hours of sleep. This is still my hardest goal to accomplis
  15. Midweek Update: Weight loss slowing down. Goal A: One hour of elliptical 4-5 days a week. Still no problems here. Every day since Sunday I've had 3 40 minute workouts each day. For the first time in a long time, I'm feeling muscles in places that I didn't even know I had places. Goal B: Keep snacking impulses down to once a day. This still hasn't been much of a problem due to just a little bit of planning. Planned snacks between workouts have been a lifesaver. Goal C: No more than 9 hours of sleep. This has been the hardest of the three goals so far (I know, right?!). I hav
