  1. Week 1 Day 5 I started the second week of the couch to 5k program and did some yoga stretching when I got home. I had been stuck hovering around 210 for a couple weeks but finally got a bit of a whoosh and jumped down to 206.8, which was nice. I'm going to try to do some organizing this weekend since I kind of dropped the ball on that goal.
  2. Week 1 Day 4 I didn't do any yoga, but I did go for a nice 30 minute walk early in the morning. I love how doing some form of activity is so habitual in the mornings now. It starts off my whole day on the right foot.
  3. We eat a lot of the same 10-12 meals over and over with leftovers for lunch, so it's pretty easy for me to fill out my day. Plus on Sundays I plan out all the dinners for the coming week. If I don't eat something by the end of the day then I just delete it, though that doesn't happen that often for me. Normally I just jog through my neighborhood. I think the worst part of the track was that it was hot even though I was there at 930am; an overcast day or later in the year should be better. I don't normally have the car, so I wouldn't normally go there anyway.
  4. Week 1 Day 3 I had the car, so I decided to go jogging at the track... ugh I hated it! It was so hot plus the same thing over and over and I got clipped by a little kid on a bike. Then the rest of my day was super busy, I'm actually surprised I'm not more sore at the moment. Prelogging my food and snacks has helped me avoid temptation, so I think I'll keep that up as part of my morning routine. This challenge is off to a good start!
  5. Week 1 Day 2 Yoga went okay. I picked a stretching routine but I still had to use my hand/wrist a lot and it was sore by the end of 45 minutes. I planned out my meals and snacks better today and I feel more in control of what I'm going to eat. I ended up having five of those stupid muffins yesterday at 200 cals each, though I didn't go much into my deficit. Only about 20 calories. I'm looking forward to jogging again tomorrow, though I'm definitely sore today from it.
  6. Day 1 is going well. I went for my walk/jog but now I'm starving despite eating a big salad with tuna and avocado for lunch! Unfortunately(?) I made zucchini muffins on Saturday and I just want to eat ALL of them. We'll see if this tapers off as I get more used to it but for now I'll eat some of my exercise calories back if I need to.
  7. The running went better then I expected! Doing strength circuits and having stronger legs has helped, I think. That yoga site looks great, I'll definitely check out some of those, especially the stretching and seated ones. Thanks, Notsonerdynerd!
  8. I'm going to attempt the first day of a couch to 5k program today and see how it goes. If it works out I'll be restructuring my goals for that, doing the parts of yoga that I can and concentrating on parts of the house I can organize with one hand. Like the bathrooms that have lots of tiny things. Wish me luck!
  9. I am also having an 'I don't care day' today. Granted I severely sprained my wrist and spent 2 hours in emerge this morning having x-rays done and getting a half cast put on, but I plan on having pizza for dinner and pepsi. It's going to be delicious and tomorrow I'll get back on track. I think counting calories has helped me take the guilt out of things, good food, bad food, eh.. as long as I get my protein and healthy fats I don't deny myself if it'll fit into my daily goals. I think understanding that I cannot eat enough in one day to undo months of work, or even weeks of work helps as w
  10. Sooo... I severely sprained my left wrist and I'm not suppose to use it for 3-4 weeks at least. Currently it's in a half cast. I'm going to have to rethink my challenge now. Ugh.
  11. Back again, yay! I am super jealous of your trip to Harry Potter World, you can definitely reach your goal by then! I'm sure you'll gave a great time no matter what.
  12. Good job for getting back on the train and congratulations on the waist looking smaller! I'm not sure I'm going to hit my goal, but I'm happy with how my progress is going, either way I will be less then I am now.
  13. Bit of an introduction for myself. I'm 30 years old now, 5'6" and 209 pounds, down from 242! I've been married to my husband for nearly 6 years and my beautiful daughter is 3 1/2 years old. My daughter was born at 28 weeks into the pregnancy and because of some complications has a severe form of spastic cerebral palsy. Once we brought her home from the NICU, stress and exhaustion skyrocketed and over 3 years I put on over 50 pounds. Becca would only sleep for 1-3 hours at a time (a consequence of her CP) and I was lucky to get 5-6 hours of sleep in a whole day. I spent the time binge eating a
  14. I'm going to jump in on this, for sure! I have a fitbit so I'm going to push and try for Titanium.
  15. Goal 1: Maintain a deficit of 500 calories each day. Log everything I eat to the best of my ability on MFP. I logged every single day, though a few times I had to guess while eating out and I'm very happy with that. There were a few days I went over on my calories and a few days that I decided to eat at maintenance after being sick. I know calorie counting doesn't work for everyone, but I am finding it great for me. Goal 2: I will do the BBWW twice a week and by the end of six weeks will be able to do three sets in a workout instead of just two. I rocked this goal. I think there w
