  1. Good morning all, Last week sucked. That's the best way to put it. I'm going to use this post to open up about something that I still don't feel comfortable talking about IRL. I am in Recovery for a sexual addiction. This is something that has been a part of my life since my teens. It played a huge part in the death my marriage and is something that I've only been seriously working on since August. At that time my fiancee (then girlfriend) and I found Celebrate Recovery. CR is a Christian based 12-Step Program that aims to help with a variety of life issues (not just addiction). Together we have been working on our issues. For the most part, it's been a good 10 months, I've struggled, but there were more successes that failures. Until last week. Early last week I fell off the wagon big time and the feelings of shame and guilt afterward completely derailed my goals. I respawned yesterday with a focus on my Life Goal. I need to be in God so that my addiction cannot defeat me. I did walk the dogs last night and even added a weighted backpack for more of a workout. I purposely ignored my food goals but was intentional about making batter choices than I had last week. Thanks for listening to anyone who reads this. The guys in my Sexual integrity group often joke that it's cool to be a recovering alcoholic but someone in out situation still has to hide our recovery. It feels good to talk about it in any way. Have a great day!
  2. Greeting fellow Nerds! The last 3 days have been OK...not great but OK. I'm doing good with replacing a starch with a veggie. Although Wednesday I did have pasta but added a double service of veggies as well as the pasta. I just realized that I ate no veggies yesterday which has me very bummed. It seems that the veggie snack is the hardest. I need to so shopping and stock up on snackable options. The one part I'm doing well on is my Prayer and bible reading. My only issue has been waiting too late in the day. I need to start earlier in the evening.
  3. Good morning all, Here I am 2 days into this challenge and I have to say that I'm happy with my results so far. Sunday: I hit both of my eating goals that day. I even skipped the baked potato at dinner and had an extra helping of veggies with my steak. Myself, my fiancee, and the dogs got a nice walk in. Unfortunately, I did not get into the Word at all. Monday: My afternoon snack was a couple of pickle spears. I think pickles will make a nice replacement snack for chips and pretzels. Even though we ate out I again replaced a baked potato with an extra veggie. I made up for skipping church and Bible reading today. I was in my Step Study for an hour, then at CR for almost 3 hours, then spend time in the Word at home. Monday's are a very long day for me. I think I'll need to move my walk to the mornings. There just may not be time after work.
  4. Good morning all, I feel like I have pressed the reboot button so many times that there should be a dent in the button. I've really let my health and fitness slide over the past year. I'm hoping to use this challenge as a springboard to get things back on track. My goals are very basic but should give me a good start. Health Related: Replace the starch at one meal with an extra vegetable Replace one snack a day with a vegetable. Walk the dogs for 30 minutes every day. Life Related: Spend 15 minutes a day in prayer and Bible reading. I'll try to update this post at least every other day. My ADHD doesn't always play nice with message boards and I don't want to sabotage myself.
  5. Gym: Yesterday wasn't a gym day. I'll be back there tomorrow night Walking: Hit the streets for about a half hour last night. It was a great way to destress after a really rough day at work. Paleo: Breakfast and lunch went great as planned. Dinner was slightly more paleo then usual. So far so good. Prayer: Still a great big goose egg here. *sigh*
  6. Good luck! You'll be surprised how much of a difference cutting out the fizz is gonna make.
  7. 1 -- Go to the gym: This has become very easy. I now have a standing date 2 days a week with some friends. We drop our kids off in baby sitting and work out together. 2-- Walk: Since this was a gym day walking wasn't a focus, but, I did join my friends for several laps around the indoor track after our work-outs. 3 -- Paleo: Breakfast and lunch were 99.9% paleo. Dinner was absolutlely not lol. I'm fine with this as far as I'm concerened I hit my goal on the nose. Prayer: This was an epic fail. I remember and think about the fact that I need to do it all day. Then when a meal time comes around it's outta my mind faster then I could blink.
  8. To me The Shire (while wonderfully awesome) represents living life the comfortable way that you always have. In order to level up my life I need to travel along The Road and get out of my comfort zone. I've been lurking on here for ever, and have even tried another challenge earlier and I let the power of The Ring (life and it's constant distractions) get in the way. This time feels different....this time I'm different. *****Fitness Goals***** 1 -- I will go to the gym 3 days a week (Monday, Thursday, Saturday) 2 -- I will walk at least 2 days that I'm not at the gym (30-60 mins each day) 3 -- I will be 99% Paleo each day for 2 out of 3 meals. (I know that trying to go full blown Paleo will only set me up for failure) *****Personal Goal***** Over the past year I've been focusing on getting my spiritual life in order. My personal goal for this challange seems easy on the surface but for some reason is something I struggle with. I'm going to say a prayer of thanks before each of my meals.
  9. Greetings everyone, My name is Mick and I'm a couchaholic...it's been about 30 seconds since the last time I just laid on the couch and did nothing. I'm 36 and my life has been becoming more and more sededentary over the last 10 years. I joined the site back in the summer and promptly forgot about it. When I read the challange that started today, and, the AWESOME OMFG, something just clicked. My plan is to start building small habits that will help my lifr become healthier across the board.
  10. I'm not on the official list yet, but, what do you think of "The Circle"
  11. Hello everyone. My name's Mick, and I'm human...mostly. No one likes to talk about it but from the gut I see everytime I look down I'm pretty sure I have some Orc blood in me somewhere. I'm a newbie Druid who is seeking balance in all areas of my life. The last year has been too full of trials and tribulations. It's time to cash in some of those experience points and get serious about leveling up my life. Fitness Goals: 1 -- Walk 15-20mins once a week. (I know this sounds too easy, but, I know me. I tend to set lofty goals only to fall on my ass over and over again. This time I'm starting slow and am going to try and idiot proof the process. 2 -- Drink a tall glass of water before every meal and snack. (Doing this for 2 reasons. First filling up on water should be a good way to fill up with out filling out. Second staying peperly hydrated is always a good idea 3 -- Go to bed betwen 10 and 10:30 every night. (This will give me a little over 8 hours of sleep every night. I've been really feeling rundown and not well lately. I'm 99% sure that lack of sleep is the cause. Personal Goals: 1 -- Spend time each day in prayer and Bible study. (I've been neglecting this for too long.) 2 -- Pick up my camera nd actualy use it at least once a week. (The world can look amazing through the len of a camera. I love finding the beauty in everyday life.)
