  1. It has been awhile.  I have missed you all so much.  Lots to catch up on but that will come.  I am taking this challenge to get back into good habits.  Have kept up on so much of what I learned from the times past from everyone but I want to take it to the next level this year.  

    Goals for my butting in mid challenge


    1.  Log in daily and post at least on my thread and 2 other threads

    2.  Do some sort of exercise 6 days a week. Will probably be done at home for now.

    3.  Research gyms to join.  
    4.  Track food 


    Simple and easy to start.  2021, It’s all about fun

  2. Week one down. Haven't got on the scale yet but will before the days end. Last week was good.
    1. Nutrition 6/7 days sticking to my plan. The one day I didn't count was a lazy night and bought fried chicken from the grocery store. Did pair it with a cauliflower casserole (my go to instead of potatoes) and green beans.

    2. Exercise 4/4 days. Barely got this in
    Lots of snow here (7 plus inches yesterday) one of the days water aerobics cancelled but I went anyway and swam laps and did my own workout

    3. Posted 5/7 days and 5/7 on someone else's thread.

    Here is a pic of the fried chickenc3eaed1f62c2c4404fe34459c8663209.jpg

  3. Day 2 done.  Everything complete.  Didn't hit the gym ( I have 1 out of 4 done) but shoveled snow for my workout.  We received 4 inches Sunday and then an additional 5 yesterday ( Monday into Tuesday).  [mention=25713]RES[/mention] do you want to visit?  



    Dinner was chilli. It did have beans but I will take it as a win with me not having crackers.

  5. Try try again.


    i tried and fizzled last challenge but I am picking myself up, dusting myself off and I am back in the saddle again.  I will celebrate the fact that I am back at the gym 3 days a week consistently for the last 4 weeks and down 4 pounds.  I realize I can not out exercise my fork.  Even though I think I eat healthy something is not working.  Anyone know the definition of crazy?



    I could list a million excuses but I will not.  I am only positive about today and what I can do.  Every day is one step towards a happier healthier me.


    I am doing things a little different this time around.  It is not that the standard challenge doesn't work, but I need to work for the challenge.  


    1.  Nutrition.  Going again with taking pictures of my dinner each night.  Going back to MFP to log every morsel that enters my mouth.  Let's do some scientific research here.  I need data and this will lead me to my next steps.  This week I will limit my carbs to 100 g a day.  No sugar, no bread, no pasta etc.. I will allow rice once this week but it needs to be kept with in the 100 g range.  


    2. Exercise.  Gym visits 4 times a week.  We will get more specific later. 


    3.  Accomplish 3 things daily.  Each day I will make a list of three things to get done and do them.  Before I tackle anything else I need to accomplish those three things.  They could be incredibly easy like vacuum the living room or more time consuming like cleaning the hall closet. 


    4.  Post on my thread daily.  I need to be here and be accountable whether I am successful or not.  This will be the only way to learn.


    5. Post on others threads daily.  I sometimes feel overwhelmed to get through everyone's threads.  I will not use not being able to get to everyone as an excuse.  I love all the encouragement and inspiration that is here.  Being active here keeps my head in the game.  


    Everything is is pretty much a choice and I need to choose what is best for me at this time.  


    Enough typing....start doing



    Oh yeah.  There will always be music

  6. Sorry for the hiatus guys and gals.  Tough week last week.  Gave my notice at the sucky job with its sucky hours and no appreciation.  Headed back into management ( I did like the break though). Brushing off that resume.  Took the week as vacation.


    last week didn't stick totally to my goals ( mental  breakdown requires pizza) but still ate better than if I was not doing this.  Went to water aerobics Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

  7. Had 3 teenage boys over for my sons birthday party. They went bowling then to our house for dinner and a movie. Dinner was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli and fiesta corn ( whole kernel corn, cream cheese, butter and diced jalapenos). Chocolate brownies for dessert.

    I skipped the mashed potatoes but had a sliver of brownie. Forgot to take a picture of my plate but here are the leftovers.

    Yes it would be nice wouldn't ' it?:friendly_wink: I decided to buy her book, and looked at the intro online. After reading the into, I see some of her point. When people are grateful for what they have, when they can learn to manage their things, and when they actually stop and take the time to think about what brings joy to their lives, that attitude spills out on everything else.

    I loved her book. Started working of clothes and never got finished.  I need to go reread and start again.
