  1. This week has gone very well since the modification. I have not done any "exercise" but homework has been overwhelming. This week: - ate to plan, focusing on protein - kept up with homework - had my 1 cheat meal last night - had a wonderful game night - have a exercise program from my coach for next week. It includes 3 strength workouts and a goal of 10K on the concept 2 rower accumulative over the week. Rowing will be done as 500m sprints until I reach 10K. Week 1: 1) Lo-Carb Meals- XXX 2) Rowing- 3) Weights- Since I
  2. Okay y'all wonderful people... Challenge modification: WAS: Tracking in MFP - tracking is not hard but is not a task I like to do. We need to make it a habit. Track daily! IS: Stick to a low-carb plan, 30g of carbs is the target. Tracking is optional. Yesterday was class after teaching. So it was a rush for dinner then a short brain break then off to school...which is an hour away. Then my teacher freaked out about a mouse in the room so stopped class an hour in. We should have been there another hour. LOL. Today is a true day 1 for me. I ate mostly pro
  3. I think for food I need to stock some quick grab or quick cook items. Right now I have falling back on cereal, frozen waffles, and pepperoni and salami sandwiches. Some of this is okay others a little too fatty. I think if I keep some eggs, turkey sausage, frozen waffles, and leaner lunch meat in the house I can make it through dinners without messing up too badly. Yogurt is always a good go to snack. Tonight is school otherwise I would absolutely do some yoga. Tomorrow is a big probably will do. Diabetes is so hard to explain. My overall health, my weight, and my mood
  4. They seem to come and go. I may have a bunch over a couple weeks but then not have one for a month or so. My husband knows to not touch me when I am in the middle of one. If he tries to wake me it just makes the events of the dream worse. I have to fight it out on my own. They suck, makes me sleepy the next day. Your other questions are good ones. -My diabetes is not under control. There are long term side effects that I may end up with if I don't get it controlled. Currently my hair has thinned out a ton due to the high blood sugars. It is a good thing I have/had thick hair.
  5. I honestly don't know. I am my biggest obstacle. I need to break free of my own chains....defy the gravity I am tying myself down with. Some times I don't know how to help myself, and don't know what sort of help I need. My brain is so full with my school work that it doesn't want to think about anything else. So my brain is sort of throwing a tantrum. As a result... I let myself run out of my glucose monitoring supplies and now have to wait for the supplier to get my order together My diabetes is a huge mess and I know I need to fix it but yet turning a blind eye seems easier
  6. I quit tracking after like 2 days At first suggestion of eating out I give in...and eat something overly fatty and high in carbs And I have not gotten any exercise despite having a ton of ways to do something. Those are candles before I trimmed the wicks. Thank you.
  7. I am so sorry guys...I totally flaked out. Zero week was a wash out. And Week 1 started yesterday, but it was a holiday and I didn't do anything. So here is the zero week tally: ZERO WEEK: (X= a completion point) 1) Food Tracking- XX 2) Rowing- 3) Weights- For week 1 I know I need to fight myself and fight through all the bad behaviors. I did do some crafting yesterday. This is the first time I have been able to do any in a long time. It was fun...and they are going to be gifts for my gaming friends. I have also been in tough with m
  8. The Week Thus far... ZERO WEEK: (X= a completion point) 1) Food Tracking- XX 2) Rowing- 3) Weights- I ate like garbage yesterday, and did not track. Today I started off bad but I will recover. Tuesday was okay though. Tuesday night was school and Wednesday I recovered from being exhausted from school. So no exercise yet. Still time to get in 3 sessions.
  9. I have not tried a home program designed by my coaches before. I have used fitness DVDs in the past with some success. I have tried many nutrition plans. The most recent is the Healthy Steps Nutrition coaching from the box I attend. It is basically the plate method...1/2 plate healthy low starch veggies, 1/4 lean protein, 1/4 starches. Currently I am not focusing on anything but calorie count. I do look at my macronutrients daily to make sure they are not getting too out of wack. My rough macro goal is 40%carbs/30%protein/30%fat. But they are not a high priority. My calorie goa
  10. That gravity is no joke. It is weighing me down making life a chore. Struggle city in training today... ZERO WEEK: (X= a completion point) 1) Food Tracking- X 2) Rowing- 3) Weights- I made dinner and I didn't like how it smelled (honey chipotle chicken stir-fry from a meal kit) so I refused to eat and made a second dinner. I ate air fried chicken wings instead. I met with one of the CrossFit coaches from my Box about a plan that I can afford and will do. We are discussing a custom home program 3x per week. Something I can do on my own at home when I
  11. My decorations I put up inside the house are still up. I decided to not put them away. I like them too much. My skeletons wore Santa hats for Christmas.
  12. Greetings, welcome to my hangout. My name is "Roxanne Spaulding", but you can call me "Freefall". Here is where I do my training. I am always trying to learn new skills and improve upon my originals. I have what is called Gravitikinesis. That means I can alter the affects of gravity. The problem is that it takes a lot of concentration to use. My hope is that with practice I can use my skills with less focus....with more ease. Your help and guidance with my training will be greatly appreciated. Lets establish a training plan. Beginning stats: Sunday Morning 200.2lbs. P
