  1. Hey everyone! I know I'm a week late to joining this challenge, but I have actually been doing all of the goals I am going to be setting for myself for more than a week, so really it's just the posting that I havent' been doing. Regardless, I figured it would be better to join late than not join at all! So here I am! This will be my second challenge. The first one I did I kinda fell out of the habit to post, but I did complete it! My Mission: I want overall body fat loss, I have set my sights on the 10% BF range. I own a pair of calipers but I just moved and they're still packed away, so I can't get their measurement. But based on my body and how it appears I'd say I'm around the 20% mark. My goals: 1. Go to CrossFit 3-4 times a week. 2. Go to yoga 3-4 times a week. 3. Abide by the eating guidelines of Whole30 (with the exception of Thanksgiving, 11/27, and my birthday, 12/18). As I said, I have been doing most of this already, I have been going to yoga and Crossfit for about a week now, and I'm on day 6 of Whole30. I'm really looking forward to doing another challenge! Thank you all so much! And happy challenging!
  2. I've been thinking of starting re-incorporating food back into my diet since today is day 31. I have a big graduation dinner this coming sunday, and I want to be able to see the effect sugar/dairy has on me before I have that meal. It could also just be the fact that I'm sort of ready to not have such a restrictive diet. But I also don't want to feel like I gave up. So I'm conflicted.
  3. Last week I was sick, so I spent most of it in bed trying to sleep it off. Week overall: I had one slip in my diet. I didn't go to the gym, but since it was due to being sick I'm giving myself a pass on this week. I only got in 5 miles this week. Room's fine. Monday: Diet was fine. I took another day to rest because I was still feeling meh. I also didn't walk much. I had a lot of errands to run and they wiped me out. Room was still fine. Tuesday: Diet was great. I did one of my dumbbell workouts. I walked 7 miles today (I was feeling a bit better!) Room's okay.
  4. Sweet! I just gave up my WoW subscription and I kinda miss it. I'll have to see if I can work it out financially. Do they have a free trial thing like WoW does?
  5. Geez, you sound BUUUUZAAAAAY with those two jobs! But you sound like you're doing great! And I'm glad your measurements went down! That's the one thing that's a bit irritating, you can put in all the hard work and it won't show for a while. But it is now! Yay! Off topic: How is FFXIV? I'm a sucker for MMOs...
  6. Aww, thank you! I'm glad I could help I know you can't count this challenge as a full one, but I say set goals for yourself for the next three weeks and follow them, as a trial run or something! It'll be about 5-6 weeks at the least until the next challenge which is quite a while. So if you want to just do a mini challenge! I knoooooooow! I've been bad when it comes to my room. I wouldn't say it's at the failing point though. I'll get on it today cause I can get quarters for laundry! yaay! And thank you very much Naaria!
  7. IT'S LEVEL UP DAAAAY! (thanks for introducing me to that!!!)
  8. Day 21: Diet was fine. I did a dumbbell work out at the gym. I didn't walk much today. Though I did spent 1.5 hours dancing. Room's meh, but still okay, just need to do laundry but Safeway couldn't give me quarters! Week Overall: Diet = good I did 3/4 strength training work outs, but I did a c25k so I'm going to count it as an A. I walked 14.5 miles this week (yaaay!!!) Room's been slipping. But I can fix it pretty easily! YAAAAAY for the halfway mark!!!! I gotta say though, I have been struggling with cravings. Not strong enough to get me to give in, but they've been pretty bad lately.
  9. Day 20: Diet was good I didn't get to the gym, but I did a c25k and got 2.7 miles in I walked 1.5 miles Room's eh at the moment.
  10. Day 19: -Diet was okay. I didn't eat very much today cause I just haven't been hungry. I have also been enjoying the dried mango a bit too much as of late and I need to cut back. -It was a rest day from the gym for me. Much needed too. -I walked 6 miles today! It was just so beautiful out! -Rooms aight. Sneakin up on me though. Tomorrow is gonna be a laundry day. Aaaaaaand I get my new running shoes/compression shorts tomorrow! I'm actually really excited about this!
  11. Thank you! I'll make those adjustments next time I do squats!

Does anyone ever feel it in their lower back? This is the main reason I've been fluctuating with weights. I don't know if it's a problem with form, or if it's normal to feel a bit in the lower back due to stabilization or something? Thank you!
