  1. Is your name Annie?! My name is Annie! Hi Annie! Cutting out processed foods is great. I know I've felt better since limiting it in my diet. Your numbers are looking good, and you're off to a great start! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!
  2. Nice! Sounds like you've had a few good days! That's a pretty sweet looking mouse (I love clicky-buttons too Not sure if that's the right word). Happy gaming!
  3. I believe AJ Styles (Allen Jones) had a back injury while he was with NJPW, shortly before coming on with WWE, and he's back to doing all the things since he started DDP Yoga. It seems to be working out very well for us non-wrestlers so far. Although, we aren't exactly injured (just me being a plank of wood, and the boyfriend having osteoarthritis), but boyfriend says he's felt better since we started, and I've noticed an slight increase in stamina and flexibility. Hopefully the trend continues!
  4. Thanks! Yeah, food prep day is kind of insane. And it's always fun to try to find the biggest onion at the store (I think I just have a weird sense of fun). And I'm trying to not sweat the scale, which is hard. In other news: Going paleo again. I mean, for the most part. During this last year, I became unofficially diagnosed with PCOS. Part of PCOS means insulin resistance. Which explains a lot about my feelings towards food and the resistance I experience when trying to lose fat. I went primarily paleo a few years ago, with a lot of success, but then life happened, and long story
  5. Greetings and solicitations! Er, wait. Saultations. Yeah, that's the one. Congrats on quitting smoking! That's a wonderful first step towards health. I like this log a lot, you've outlined your starting point, and why you want to get healthy. That's always difficult to recognize (it was for me, anyway). And everyone starts somewhere! You're in a good position to kick this health thing's (toned) butt! You got this! Also, WHAT IS MAPLE BACON JERKY AND WHERE CAN I GET SOME BECAUSE THAT SOUNDS AMAZING?!
  6. Mrf. So I have become sick. I'm 77% sure it's just a cold, and so far my symptoms are pretty mild. Last year, though, I'm just about positive that I got the flu, since I had a fever around 104 for three days in a row. I just wish this didn't happen when I have tests to study for. Also! I got a heart rate monitor. It's kinda lame, just a cheap little watch that I have to put my finger on to get it to work. But I wanted to try one out before dropping some real money down on one (by that I mean, like, $50). Today's exercise! Road cycling: ~9 miles DDP Yoga!
  7. Well, I keep meaning to update. But I write my updates on my laptop, which I typically use in the morning, and it doesn't save so I can simply pull up what I've already written on my desktop. Ah, well. So things that have happened recently. My buddy got his gym up and running! I was there yesterday, it's pretty legit. All Olympic platforms and racks. And a few bikes. All in all, it was pretty cool, and I'm excited. Gonna build some beasts in that place, for sure. So I haven't been hitting it too heavy the past few weeks (at least in part due to the fact that I don't hav
  8. Thank you! I actually rooted around and did find that previous thread where people discussed it. The boyfriend and I actually just did the first workout today! The only space we had was in our tiny bedroom, so it got pretty warm pretty quickly, I tell you what. I enjoyed it though! Will be doing again in the future.
  9. So I'm a WWE fan. One of my favorite wrestlers swears by this program called DDP Yoga (a program created by a fellow wrestler, Diamond Dallas Page) for strength building and injury recovery. Now, I'm about as flexible as a crowbar, and have considered yoga as a way to increase flexibility for myself. My boyfriend, without whom I probably wouldn't have even heard about this program, has osteoarthritis in his hips and knees, so a no-impact workout regimen is ideal to get him started on the path to getting healthy (Which he has expressed an interest in). Has anyone tried this program?
  10. Today's exercise! Road cycling: 8.8 miles. (My work schedule changed this week, so my weekly average of riding will probably go up to around 40 miles ) DDP Yoga! Today's food! Breakfast: None Lunch: Portion of breakfast quiche (egg, milk, half and half, tomato, spinach, onion, cheese, pie crust). I made a huge one and portioned it for the week. Also had beef + black beans + brown rice + homemade salsa + low fat sour cream (1 tbsp) Dinner: Tilapia with spinach and baby romaine salad Today's positivity! So over t
  11. Well, after taking a few days off, I'm ready to get back at it. I binged videogames, did some studying, cleaned the house, it was a good time. However, on Sunday I did have instant ramen for the first time in maybe a year and my LORD did I regret it. The broth tasted good, but the amount of salt and whatever the heck those noodles are made of certainly took a toll. I'm not as equipped to handle junk as I used to be, bleh. But anyway. Today's exercise! Road cycling: 8.8 miles 5x10 Squat @100# Flexibility yoga Today's food! Breakfast: None, I'm fasting
  12. Today's exercise! Road cycling: 8.8 miles Today's food! 1554 Cal, 179g carbs (much better), 69g fat, 69g protein (also better), 2348mg sodium, 59g sugar 9(better) Not a bad day. I'm not including the pie slice I'm going to get later tonight, because I'm treating myself. It's been a long, but good, week. Today's positivity! I have ridden at least 35.7 miles this week on my bike. I say 'at least' because I didn't start using Strava until halfway through Monday. So It's probably more like 36-37 miles total. Before Monday I was using MapMyRun, but I like
  13. Thank you both, @Jittersthe.Clown and @CloneClubber, I appreciate the encouraging words. Today's exercise! Road cycling: 7.1 miles 5x10 Squat @100# Today's food! I did not eat as much protein today as I probably should have. The chicken I purchased the other day has turned to be really, really gross. It's...gristly and feels like chewing tendons. I don't like it. I keep taking like 1-2 bites and trying to stomach it and it just isn't working out well. I settled for frozen chicken strips I made in the oven just now. Also, I felt that I ate kind
