  1. Did't go well this time around... I've had a chest cold that just will not quit... I finally could breath well without coughing this morning so got in a good 20 minute workout with Xbox Fitness. I have avoided soda for the most part this challenge but did not track my calories though I think I did pretty good I can't know for sure. The worst has been the sleep routine, I've been staying up way too late but recently I've been doing really good at getting up at 7 to get my son when he wakes up and then not going back to bed (which I used to always do)... But now I'm getting up bringing him to his mom to nurse etc. and then going and getting ready. I need to not use him as my alarm clock though because while he does wake up at 7 most mornings which gives me enough time to workout and get ready it's not a guarantee.. so I need to start getting up at 6:30 (which will be easier when I go to bed at a reasonable hour) and then my workout should be done right around when he wakes up and I can still help there. So I'm working on it, just haven't been consistent or healthy enough to post regularly. I feel like this cold is finally behind me so I can breath well and start exercising regularly.
  2. Thanks! I'm excited that the weight loss seemed to move forward uninterrupted. I've still stuck with the eating healthy and tracking calories etc. Yeah it was a very rough January between him and me being sick. It was more sad to see him sick but we've both made a full recovery! Now I need to focus in and more than anything get back to the sleep schedule. The overview of this week so far has been the same pattern of staying up too late, sleeping in too late, and not exercising much.. However, on the bright side I did track calories and avoid soda so halfway. I'm aiming work on it this weekend so next week I come back in strong.
  3. I posted a new topic in the new challenge to explain what happened to this challenge.. Sickness struck and so I jump out to get healthy again (which I now am)!
  4. Ok so the last challenge I started off really well was working hard and seeing results. Then sickness struck. My 9 month old son came down with Pink Eye, then an ear infection and RSV he had a very hard week and I decided helping him heal was more important then staying on track. I still did my best but then I came down with Pink Eye and a bacterial cold in my lungs and throat which made it hard to see and breath. So I took the last two weeks and I rested so that I could get fully healthy and take on the next challenge full force rather then limp uselessly through the last one. So here we go! Goal #1 Keep track of calories daily on MyFitnessPal (2 points if I only keep track 4 points if I stay under) WIS + CHA Goal #2 No Soda (4 points if 50-100% 2 points if 0-50%) END+WIS Goal #3 Work Out with MOSSA Fight Tues, Thurs, Sat (or equivalent exercise) 2 points to END Work Out with MOSSA Power Mon, Fri (or equivalent exercise) 2 points to STR Goal #4 (Life Goal) Go to bed by 10:30 and Wake up at 6:30 on all days but Thursday into Friday (4 points if both done 75+% 2 points if one done 75+% or both 50+% or 0 points if 1 under 50%) WIS+CHA I did continue to eat as healthy as I could though I was sick so I actually have seen some good progress still. I started the last one weighing 220 I am now hanging around 212-214 So here goes a good forward progress month!
  5. Sunday: Goal #1 I tracked calories today and stayed under pretty well. As an added bonus I now weigh in at 215 which is a good start of 5 pounds in the first 2 weeks! Goal #2 I did have soda this night with the youth group as we watch the Steelers game. I only had two cups which is still better than usual but still not perfect. Goal #3 I did not work out today as it was a day off of exercise (though I did meet my step goal on Google Fit for the first time in a while) Goal #4 I got up around 7:30 again then I went to bed Sunday night right around 10:30.
  6. Saturday: Goal #1 I used this as my off day for the week so I did not track calories Goal #2 I actually did not have soda this day either despite the off day, Instead with our wings for dinner we had sparking flavored water. I know that's not perfect but it is better than soda. Goal #3 I did not work out as I was attempting to give my body rest to hopefully get over this cold. Goal #4 I unfortunately broke my good habit that I had built in the week and again got up around 7:30 and then went to bed late after watching the Packers loss in the playoffs
  7. Friday: Goal#1 Tracked calories today even though it is usually my off day for that. I knew the Packers were going to play Saturday Night and I'd want to snack during that plus my church had a men's breakfast in the morning Saturday which I couldn't control so I chose to have Saturday be my free day instead. Goal #2 No soda today Goal #3 I was going to workout today but I've had a rough cold for a while and it actually got worse last week while working out because I think I used my energy to fight the cold on working out. So my wife encouraged me to rest this weekend to hopefully recover. Goal #4 I went to bed pretty late because today was my off day to wake up early so I woke up pretty late on Friday. I then went to bed around 11 on Friday night which was a little off also.. I've begun to learn something.
  8. Ok here come the weekend updates: Thursday: Goal #1 I tracked calories all day and stayed under. It was a pretty good day in all. Goal#2 No soda today Goal #3 I woke up in the morning and did the MOSSA Fight that was the third day exercising that week. Goal #4 I woke up bright and early right at 6:29 with just enough time to stop my alarm so it didn't wake up my family and got right up. Looks like my body got used to the routine some. Friday was a day to sleep in (my day off) so I went to bed around 12 that night which is ok.
  9. Ok Wednesday was a good day! Goal #1 Tracked Calories all day and ate a good amount this time. I figured out some healthy snacks I can eat which will give me a few extra calories to get me to the 1200 I have to eat to be deemed "healthy" but go nowhere near the 1750 I'm limited to. Goal #2 No soda once again Goal #3 I had a day off of working out today but I did lead worship for the Wed. night service at my church which is a lot of singing and playing guitar which is a good workout in itself. Goal #4 I went to bed right around 10:30-11:00 and slept less soundly as my son has a bit of a cold and didn't sleep well. However, I woke up right at 6:29 a minute before my alarm went off and got up and went downstairs and read! It seems my body is getting used to the new routine
  10. Just curious, I come from the Rangers and they as well as a lot of the other Guilds have mini-quests for everyone to do that brings additional goals etc. Do we do that here in the Monastery?
  11. Tuesday was a very good day I seem to have fallen into a pretty good routine at least morning and evening, my day time schedule keeps getting interrupted but I've still been relatively productive. Goal #1 I tracked calories once again all day and once again somehow didn't eat enough calories.. I decided that was better than just snacking on random things until I had enough so I stuck with not enough. Goal #2 No soda today it was good and has been easier than I thought it would be. Goal #3 I got myself out of bed in time to work out before heading into work. I did MOSSA Fight and it was very good to work out two days in a row but wow the soreness that comes from that! Goal #4 I went to bed Monday right around 10:30 and got up somewhere between 6:30 and 7:00. I'll have a better story of waking up tomorrow when I discuss today
  12. Update for Monday: Monday was a pretty good day, it's the start to the week I wanted to have last week but messed up.. So anyway here we go. Goal #1 I tracked calories all day and unfortunately I forgot to pack my lunch so I ended up with too few calories at the end of the day which MyFitnessPal didn't like but which I was ok with because I didn't feel that hungry and had no headache from hunger. Goal #2 Had no soda again today which is very good I'm trying to stick to this as best I can. Goal #3 I got up Monday morning and did MOSSA Power getting lots of weight lifting in. It felt good to get a workout in that morning and started of my day well. Goal #4 I went to bed right around 10:30 on Sunday evening and got up bright and early at 6:45 which still kept me on track in the morning so it works well.
  13. Finally Sunday: Goal #1 Unfortunately I did not track calories today either. Goal #2 My wife and I watched my Packers play in the Wild Card game and had some pizza and soda to go with that. Goal #3 No exercise today it's an off day Goal #4 I went to bed Saturday at 10:30 and got up by 7:00 waking up at 6:30.
  14. Ok Saturday this was an interesting day. Goal #1 I did not track calories today I used it as my off day. Goal #2 My wife and I watched her Steelers play in the Wild Card game and so we ate some subs and had some root beer but today was my off day so it was counted in. Goal #3 I did no do MOSSA today however I went to help a friend who is doing construction on his house to get ready to sell it and so I did lifting and construction for 5 hours which is equivalent. Goal #4 I went to bed Friday night a little late and got up a little late.
  15. Alright here comes a series of posts to cover the weekend... I generally don't get on a computer much over the weekend so I'll probably update Friday-Sunday on Monday's So here is Friday: Goal #1 I track my calories and was actually planning to use this day as a day to not follow the calorie goal to closely but at the end of the day I was pretty well under... So I moved my free day back one. Goal #2 No soda today so good once again. Goal #3 Today I did not do the MOSSA Power exercise because it never worked out for me to use the Kinect however I did do some weight lifting before I went to bed so it was about the equivalent. Goal #4 Thursday Night's my goal is to go to bed at midnight at the latest and be up 7:30 on my day off Friday. So that's basically what I did.
