  1. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (Aug 15, 16, 17) 1. Taper off the smoking... yeah, that's not working so much. I tried to taper but I effing hate it. It's either all or nothing. I know I can quit cold turkey because I am just that damn stubborn, but I have to be willing to work for it and I'm just not ready for it. 2. Body weight workout? What body weight workout? It has been so hot that just walking is whupping my butt (I've also thrown in a bit of jogging.) I've been doing a lot of stuff around the house (in my effort to cut down on smoking, and also, I'm doing a lot of prep work
  2. Thanks Fio! I started a daily battle log. Daily reflection on my progress really helps me stick to the program and stay accountable. I have used several different apps but I haven't found one that clicked with me (I loved Zombies, Run! but then I had to switch phones and they wouldn't honor the previous purchase, and I dislike their subscription model now.) I've been tracking distance with... Pokemon Go! I'm not sure how accurate it is, but my goal is to hatch an egg each time! I'm planning to cut out soda on Wednesdays. No specific reason really, but it's easier for me to avoid so
  3. Goals for this week: 1. Taper off the smoking 2. Focus on the NF body weight workouts. I dig them, it's nice not wasting my time doing "research" and just getting right to a workout 3. Water EVERY DAY 4. Walk with husband after work each day 5. Dinners: Protein & Veggies 6. 100 Pushups every day
  4. August 11 - 14, 2016 My husband and I drove down to Virginia Beach for the weekend, and for the most part, I think I stuck to my plans pretty well. Walk: Walked at the hotel, walked while taking tours. Not as much as I would have liked, but OMG IT WAS SO FREAKING HOT. Like, melt your face off hot. Glasses fogged up every time I went outside. Had lots of opportunities to walk but husband didn't want to stop and get out of the car: "Too many people, too hot, too tired, just want to get home". I tried to express how important this is to me, I want to spend more time outside and off my b
  5. Hi Scouts! Fortuositea here (formerly AgentSpiderMonkey.) I've been AWOL for a while, but this week I'm trolling forums, getting excited about jumping back in the mix. Getting excited about the next challenge - not sure if I'll remain with the Scouts, might venture out to do some exploring in other realms.
  6. 8/10/16, Wednesday Walk: It was very muggy out so I opted to not walk today. I added extra steps around the house to try to make up for it. Next time, I should jump on the treadmill if it's too icky outside. Strength: Desk pushups at work, and a quick bodyweight workout before I went to bed. Squats, pushups, door frame rows. It doesn't really feel like much, I'm hoping it's enough to be a good start. Nutrition: Yogurt for breakfast (and a Reese's peanut butter cup... only one!) Lunch: Chicken patties. I drank one soda today - and lots of water. YES! Lots of water. Probably 25
  7. Cutting out soda is not as easy as I thought. My willpower is not as strong as it needs to be for this. I have brought a water and soda with me to work. After this ONE soda, no more today. Come on, Sarah, it's only one day. Also struggling again with quitting smoking. The first time I quit, it was because I was ready, I knew it was time, and I just quit, cold turkey. This is a lot different... I think I tricked myself into thinking, well, I quit cold turkey once, I can do it anytime. I find myself saying, "one more pack and that's it" and I totally believe it. Then I get to the end of the pack
  8. 8/9/16 Part 2 Walk: Right after work, I went to a park across the river in PA to walk (lots of Pokestops, very few Pokemon. Oh well, that's Pokemon Go in the country for you.) I'm not sure exactly how far I walked. At 7 PM, my husband's work-out alarm goes off and he says, "Ready to go for a walk?" so I put my sneakers back on and went to a different part of the same park, where I found like a Pokemon every tenth of a mile. So TWO walks in one day! Not bad! Strength: Just the push-ups. Nutrition: Dinner was chicken patties and green peppers. I sauteed the peppers in a little oil
  9. Thanks - I'm going to try to stick to it and hopefully prevent another respawn for a long time!
  10. OK, so. This is my first battle log. I'm Sarah, formerly AgentSpiderMonkey. I'm embracing my new normal. I'm starting up a battle log to help myself respawn - long story short, I had a miscarriage, stopped running, started eating crap, gained a bunch of weight... ready to start taking care of myself better. I just needed a space to track daily habits I'm trying to create. Walk each day: I will track distance when possible. I'm not sure I want to go back to running... it was a lot of work for very little reward, and I have a lot of ground to make up. Suggestions on how
  11. I had a miscarriage in December. I basically immediately stopped functioning like a stable adult. I stopped working out altogether, my nutrition went down the drain, gained thirty pounds, went up a pants size, started smoking again after having been quit for three years, and I also started feeling really bad about myself. It is time to respawn. I'm starting with very small steps. I would really like my husband to jump on the bandwagon, so I'm trying to suggest some healthier dinners and more walks. For at least a month, I plan to walk every day - I'll track distance when I can. Cut
  12. Aaah, life is pulling me in too many directions lately. I haven't been running as much or doing any workouts; instead I'm mostly focusing on projects and people, which is what is making me happy at the moment, so I'm going to stick with that. I should run a little in preparation for my race on October 31. I'll let you know how it goes!
  13. Thank you awesomesue, it is so nice of you to say that you look forward to my updates! ugh. Yes! So busy planning food, crafting, and arranging fall outings. Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year, so if I can get out and enjoy some autumn, I am out the door! I also don't sit at a computer too often when I'm not working, and I've been trying to be more productive at work, which means less time to wander the internet, and I don't update on my phone, so it's created a bit of radio silence for me. It's nice, I get to do more real-world productive stuff, but I've been absent-minded about NF.
  14. Shark Week knocked me down a step. I planned to run on Sunday with my sister in between other events but we didn't have enough time. I've been busy doing some Halloween decorating, so there's like, five new projects right there! Lots to do if I find myself sitting down to watch TV. Planning a little run tonight with strength if there's time before I go to hang out with a friend. It's tough to schedule a two mile run when I know it will take me at least forty minutes when it's all said and done (changing, showering, etc, and that's only if I run on our treadmill, it's at least an hour if I in
