  1. Eek! My first race ever! Anyone else in the area planning on running (or coming to cheer and throw color? )
  2. Oooh... I have 20.2 pounds to lose until my goal weight of 150. Count me in! I weigh in on Tuesday mornings, and yesterday I was 170.2.
  3. Food porn! Paleo dinner tonight of tomato, garlic, and basil chicken; paprika, cinnamon, red pepper, and almond sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts. Yum! (Okay I used a pinch too much paprika and my mouth is on fire. )
  4. As promised, my food porn from last night. Lemon pepper pork chop, baked sweet potato, steamed green beans and broccoli, and fresh fruit. So many colors!
  5. Ooooh... this sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing! And keep up the great work! You slipped off track for a little there, but you've been doing great at recognizing it, making a plan to get back on track, and sticking with it! Awesome job!
  6. So much good info in this thread! This is something I struggle with too... I've been losing weight and don't want to lose muscle along with fat, but eating at a deficit + lifting is tough! I've settled into doing more body weight work and running for the time being while still working on the weight loss, but once I hit my goal weight, I'll switch my focus. Just wanted to say thanks to Alex and everyone else that provided such great info in this thread, and Steph for sticking with it and being motivation to the rest of us! (Sorry for the delayed response, I've been really behind on my forum reading lately. Oops.)
  7. I love it! This is going to be my new workout when I get bored. How long until my neighbors get annoyed with me?
  8. Still hanging in there, sorry I haven't been updating much. Been crazy at work, plus packing for our move next weekend. Let's see... 2 weeks behind? Week 4: Goal 1: Pass Made my increases, 2 days of 2 circuits of the BBWW this week. I like doing the C25K on M/W/F (although I skipped Friday for lunch with coworkers, but walked more in the evenings this week to make up for it!) and the BBWW on T/H. Goal 2: +2 Paleo dinners on Wednesday (stir fry) and Thursday (grilled shrimp, sweet potatoes, broccoli) Goal 3: Nothing new. Glad I found time to try so many things early on. Life quest: Got all the letters mailed and tracked them all week so I knew they made it. Week 5: Goal 1: Pass Another increase, I'm up to 3 sets of the BBWW! (Well, 3 on Tuesday... I was feeling sick on Thursday but still got one circuit in, because I would have been mad at myself if I didn't at least try.) Moving right along with C25K, finished week 1 finally (only took me, what, 3 weeks? LOL) but jumped right in to week 2. I'll finish that today, since it's Monday and therefore a running (okay, jogging) day. Goal 2: +3 Paleo dinners on Tuesday (tilapia, sweet potatoes, cauliflower), Thursday (stir fry - so glad this recipe was a hit! ), Sunday (pork chops, sweet potatoes, green beans, fruit - food porn incoming!). Oh! +1 more, for having left over stir fry for lunch on Sunday. Goal 3: Nothing new, sorry! There are so many more things I want to try, but at least until this conference is over I'm going to be spending lots of my free time working. And fun stuff always costs money I don't have. Life quest: Starting to get some replies in about the letters! Since we're moving this weekend, they're just going in the paperwork box for now, but I think another phase of this life quest will be to organize the heap of papers I call a file cabinet and keep better records. Oh, and that little challenge my director was doing for our department? As of the end of last week, I'm the only one still in! Which means I just have to finish the month and I get the gift card. Woo! I can't believe this is the last week of the challenge! Time to start thinking about my next quests... (P.S. I know I usually link all of my workouts in my posts, but I need to get back to work. You can all snoop on my workouts from the links in my sig!)
  9. My link is in my sig... adding all of you! I'm a walker/hiker working my way up to running... slowly but surely!
  10. But I have so much energy now! I want to do ALL the things!
  11. I pictured this and laughed. Is that really a thing people can do? o.O How's it going this week Mason?
  12. Ouch! Glad to hear it's not serious. I've managed to hurt myself, but not bad enough to knock me out for a week! It's usually just soreness I can work through. Here's to a speedy recovery and getting back on track!
  13. I actually worked out to Doctor Who last night! My director at work as a little fitness challenge going for our team, where we do things like squats and planks every day - progressively more throughout the month - with the goal being to stay in the challenge until the end of the month without missing a day. Anyone who makes it gets put in a drawing to win a gift certificate. Just a little friendly competition and fun. (I'm SO gonna win this gift card! ) So last night the boyfriend and I were watching a couple episodes and I thought, let's do the workout while we watch! SO much easier to plank while watching The Doctor.
  14. Awesome job staying on track while on vacation - keeping the indulgences in moderation and fitting activity in when you could - great job! (Plus Busch Gardens is beautiful, what a great place to walk for the day!)
  15. Feeling much better today! Thank you for putting up with my rant! Yesterday's saga continued with a package not getting delivered and trying to track it down, a 20 minute drive and back to the sort facility, where they still couldn't find it, and several angry phone calls. But it came today! Yay shiny new sports bra that actually fits, so running will be more comfortable! Plus the boyfriend took me out to my favorite Mexican place last night (and a couple beers didn't hurt! ) and then put on a couple of my favorite Doctor Who episodes - just to try to cheer me up. He's a keeper. Back on track today - did the C25K on the treadmill today, which wasn't as challenging as I thought it would be with the switching speeds and all that. I think going forward, my workout will be C25K on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the BBWW on Tuesday and Thursday. (Look at me incorporating my new things I tried into my routine!) Plus I'm still in the group challenge at work, and the boyfriend and I took a nice walk this evening because it was so nice out - my fitness is starting to rub off on him, score! Paleo stir fry for dinner tonight... I'm thinking grilled shrimp tomorrow. Oh, and the CrossFit gym I tried sent me an offer for a "30 Day Test Drive" for only $59. Hmmm...
