  1. I forgot to mention I went out and purchased some smaller lunch plates to eat my dinner on. I am trying to fool myself into smaller portions Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. Yesterday was not as stellar. After working my 1:30am to 9 I was starved when I got ho.e and grabbed a piece of leftover pizza. Curb fail. Then slot for a few hours and had this for dinner. Beef roast from the crockpot with onions, cauliflower casserole with green onions,, turmeric and cheese and some acorn Sqaush. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for your input. I think I will benefit more by just eating one less meal Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. Your vacation sounds wonderful, the one you just had and the upcoming one. Following in hopes of sunshine pictures.
  5. w1d1 ( I started on Sunday) nutrition. This for dinner. Chicken enchilada filling in a bowl with lettuce, avocado and the last of my homemade salsa. Didn't track on MFP but I didn't have any carbs that were not in veggies or cheese. My eating window was 10am to 6pm. Exercise. Nope. But was planning on it. Lifestyle. Nope and wasn't planning on it. My day was without many expectations but I will still count it as a win.
  6. Relaxation Feat. Done. Each day last week did something to pamper myself! Distance feat. Hit 20,000 steps each day I work. I typically log in about 15,000-17,000 a day so this will require an addition walk or water aerobics class. Also need to make sure I log 10,000 on my 2 days off. Social Feat. I know this will be hard for you to fathom, but I don't have an issue socializing. I will talk to a tree if necessary. I think I will go another route and post something in a First Time Challenger's thread each day.
  7. We are on it like blue bonnet! Thanks for the input on IF. We shall see what this brings. glad you like the music. I jump around but it is mostly feel good music. Thanks. I really need to give it my all this challenge. Having everyone chime in really helps me stay on track. Out of the gate and ahead in the race!
  8. I start my weeks on Sunday ( I hate Monday starts) Focus this week Nutrition. 1. No bread, pasta or gluten anything. Carbs from veggies including potatoes, sweet potatoes are okay and 1/3 C rice on a few days ok. Just got my 21 day Keto reset book by Mark Sisson. Most of this I already know but I will read this week. I enjoy Marks take on nutrition. 2. No grocery shopping except for fresh produce, dairy and eggs. 3. Bought smaller dinner plates at Target today to use. 4. Pictures here for all dinners this week . 5. Attempt to log meals on MFP . 6. IF 3 days this week. Eating window of 8 hours ( I think I have settled on 1-9) exercise. I know this is a little short of my original goal but I am really focused on nutrition this week. 1. Research gyms . 2. Two days of BBWW and two days of lifting and/or bands Lifestyle. Finish taking down all Christmas decorations and organize and store neatly with labels
  9. Best meatloaf ever 11/2 lbs hamburger. I use 80 or 85%. It sits on a rack as it cooks so the grease drains. 1/2-1 C of Oatmeal 1 package Lipton onion soup mix ( or generic) 1 egg then a squirt or two of yellow mustard, liberal shakes of Worcestershire sauce and maybe a squirt of ketchup if I have some. make your loaf, coat top with a thin layer of BBQ sauce then lay on the bacon. I also use the pepper grinder liberally on top of the bacon. i have found that at 360 degree oven once the bacon is done on top it is cooked perfectly.
  10. Welcome back and this just had to be done or I would disappoint the Rangers Sorry to hear about your mother passing. Never an easy time. i like your goal of exercise minutes. If you fall short with workouts you could always just do 10 minutes of squats! Or any other BBWW. The world of taxes and finance is a tricky one. I wouldn't suggest doing your own taxes especially with a death in the family and transfers of property and /or money. Your bank or credit union may be able to help you with either a class or a consultation on investing and there should be some tools online to utilize through your 401k program to help you keep the right mix of investments in that. cant wait to see you kill the first week of the challenge
  11. I am going to avoid that food so hopefully it will work better Thanks Deffy. That does my sense.
  12. Following to steal the Home Maintenance checklist.
  13. Congrats Teros! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!
  14. Math and Johnny Depp? Be still my heart.
  15. Most of what I have read is to limit eating into an 8 hour window. This is hard for me because work is 3 days of 5am to 2pm and 2 days of 1:30am to 9am. We eat dinner as a family around 7:30-8pm. I can usually stay busy enough to not eat at work or at least just have a snack. I think I am going to play around with the 8 hours as 1-9pm at first.
  16. Only one kind of meat in mine but cover it with bacon to really elevate Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  17. Sun is out even though it is chilly, it is unseasonably warm here in Iowa. 39 degrees is a heat wave this time of year here. Usually it is below zero. I have a day off today. Prepping the Batcave for a successful week one of this challenge. Purposely left week zero as a no stress week to get prepared. I cleaned out the pantry and frig already today. I am going to go for a walk then go get a pedicure and manicure with a gift certificate from son and hubby then tackle the freezers. I did go to the grocery store last night. As I said in my goals I will not be going for anything thing but fresh produce, dairy and eggs in the month of Jan. It is a great way to dwindle down all the crap in the freezer and pantry. The end of the month the dinners could get very interesting. Remember I am committed to taking pictures of each dinner and posting here. I did pick up a 10lb tube (2.99 a pound for 95%) of ground beef and some chicken breasts (1.49 a pound). That sale I could not pass up. Anyone else doing IF? There is so much fluctuation in the amount of hours between dinner night before and next meal. Curious what others have found.
  18. Glad to have you! " Strange things are afoot to theCircle k" and on this thread. I will keep the music coming!
  19. I am all in for 80's wrestling! I will take Jimmy "super fly" Snuka https://youtu.be/7YvAYIJSSZY
