  1. Heheheh, well, I managed to complete all three workouts last week, but won't be doing so this week. My back has started acting up again, despite making a concerted effort to focus on form and be careful. After a couple days of rest it's already feeling a good bit better, but I don't want to sabotage the healing by lifting again too soon. Might substitute time on my bike. The thing that's concerning is I suspect this may be a disc problem. Might have to call the doc and make sure it isn't serious.
  2. Woo, so after sleeping through my alarm I was determined to make this day productive. I have revamped my lifting routine because I was getting kinda stagnant, and wow I am glad I did! My arms feel way more tired and sore (the good kind) than they have in weeks. I also finally did a cook up, though it was only breakfasts, but since that is the hardest meal of the day for me, it takes priority. Made a big batch of eggs and bacon, portioned it out, and froze most of them. I also made a batch of bacon egg and cheese jalapeno bites. I now have no excuse to not eat breakfast for at least the next we
  3. It really is, and I hate it. Like, I feel better! I wanna GO! but I can't. Oh well, a lesson in patience. Definitely, still want to push through, but I'm having to adjust my expectations for sure.
  4. Got up earlier than usual today, which is a win, even if it was super hard. Lifted, despite still getting short of breath way easier than usual. Cooked. Handled a work crisis. Went to a work event. Altogether a difficult but successful day. On a more optimistic note, I spoke with my supervisor, the owner of the agency I work for, and she sounds willing to cover my registration fees for some 5ks this summer and may even buy a custom shirt with the agency logo for me to run in! I do not mind advertising if it means I can do runs I wouldn't otherwise be able to do! She may even join me for a 2 da
  5. Okay, so this past week did not go terribly well. I am still struggling with getting to sleep at a reasonable time, motivation to get out of bed the next day, and I only managed to work out once. I have managed to be pretty good about my diet, at least. I think the problem is a combination of lingering fatigue due to recovering from illness and the fact that I have not had a single down day in many weeks, and won't have one for at least another month. I am tired and don't want to do anything. I'm not sure what to do about this. While I build my case load at my primary job I need to supplement
  6. Just logging food is totally enough for week 1, it's more work than it sounds like! And mornings are tough. Hopefully it'll get easier as we start getting more and more daylight.
  7. Was in bed on time, and fell asleep easier than the night before, but I ended up waking up 3 hours before my alarm this time. Why must you do this to me, brain? WHY?! Oh well, so I had another tired day, but I did complete my entire workout routine, and now I have that very satisfied tired body feel. Hopefully tonight my brain decides not to fight me when it comes to sleep? Stayed keto, but I'm struggling to eat enough. That will get easier once I have an actual day to do meal prep. *flump*
  8. First day: Ugh. I had trouble getting to sleep last night (not surprising), but then I also woke up 2 hours before my alarm. I have been dragging all day, but I still finished a day of work and even proposed the idea of my employer sponsoring me for 5ks this summer. I stuck to keto, though I still haven't done any meal prep due to feeling like poo, so it was the few keto friendly items I had ready made in my fridge. Hoping that tonight I can actually sleep, and then tomorrow I'm going to lift for the first time in 2-3 weeks.
  9. I have chronic digestive issues, but once I got going on keto, they significantly diminished. I wasn't hungry all the time, I had more energy, I was more clear headed and focused. All around I really felt better, it was really surprising!
  10. Restarting after a few years away from this site! This year is not off to quite the start I had planned. I had gone off keto from thanksgiving to new years because I can't go through December without egg nog, but I had planned to go right back on Jan 1. Then the start of the new decade rolled around and I came down with a nasty head cold, preventing me from being active, following any sort of diet, or even posting here until now. Oh well, better late than never, right? I will probably add some sort of fiction to my posts as things go along, but I want to get something posted so I don't use thi
  11. I feel bad that I haven't been posting more, but I really haven't been feeling it. Not the challenge, that's been going pretty well overall, just the posting. Like I said, the challenge is going good, at least with the exercize stuff. The school and other stuff has kinda fallen off a bit, but I'm getting back on that. I managed to get another massive knot over my left shoulder blade, but luckily that was just before it warmed up enough that I can start running again! I have decided to go through c25k again this season, but this time with my weighted vest. I can already feel the difference, an
  12. Drinking horn. I've actually gotten Riften and Morthal carved now too, but they're not painted yet. I'm finding it really easy to pound these out!
  13. The horn, as promised!
  14. Lol, sorry. The DMV went as it always does. Long boring lines, anxiety inducing crowds, supervisor had to be called in twice because my paperwork is weird (I was born in Germany, so my birth certificate is actually a certificate of a us citizen born abroad, and so does not have the birth certificate number they usually use, ugh), but I got through it. I am officially a resident of the state of Illinois! And just in time to vote in the primary! Other than that, last week was mostly a bust for me. I had intended to prep for a visit from a friend, but couldn't seem to get it into my head that the
  15. Omg Blood Bowl is such a blast! I'm gonna be running a dark elf team using old war hammer minis until I can get the pro elf team mini set! :D

      Lol, Blood Bowl is a board game that's sort of football meets rugby meets dnd. You build a team, and level your players as you win games, either by scoring or by killing your opponents. It's so much fun! :D
