  1. First off, nice work with the loss in week 7! Secondly, great work with the 5K. Outdoor fitness is much better than just being in the basement. During the pandemic when I was working at home, I used to bring my kettlebell outside and just do the same routine but in the fresh air and it was really nice. I did embarrass myself on one super hot and humid day. I was broiling so I decided to take my shirt off (which I never do), but right at that moment my landlord's wife came outside. I don't think anyone wants to see my overweight, middle aged body but I guess that was her unlucky day! Enjoy your runs!
  2. Another week and another pound gained! I am mentally checked out right now. Hoping to mull over some dietary changes this weekend and get back to doing some exercises. Time to get going!
  3. Gained weight again. I'm definitely in a mid-life period of malaise/doldrums. I've been dealing with injuries so I can't work out and eating really poorly. Also thinking about some bigger life changes that I may need to make that won't be easy. I need to get back to at least eating better though. I've been definitely overindulging and it makes me feel like garbage mentally and physically. Fingers crossed I can get back on the path this week. I hope nobody else is in the doldrums!
  4. Woof woof. I've been absent the last two weeks. Been a lot going on between personal and work life. Some good, some bad. Still dealing with the fallout of losing my cousin. I gained 1.2 lbs this week as I have really reverted to some bad dietary habits since around Easter. I need to impose some more discipline on my eating and get back to what I was doing since February. I'm also dealing with some injuries so working out is probably not happening this week (hurt hands/wrists, groin pull from a run and Achilles pain). I think this is part of trying to be active in middle age, you need to know when to back off so you can get back to things without really injuring yourself. I always have this thought in my head to 'lose the battle but win the war' if that makes sense. Thank you for your kind words! Unrelated to health and fitness, I started to watch the original Star Trek series and am really enjoying it! I am not a big TV guy but I do like sci-fi books/movies and although some stuff is dated, the writing and ideas they present are often really thought-provoking. Anyone like the original series? And are there other sci shows you would recommend from any era? Happy Monday everyone!
  5. Thank you! It was not a great week but I know people have worse. And thanks for your condolences. He was a great man (gave one of his kidneys to a sick relative, took in his niece for years when she had no place to go) and we will all miss him.
  6. Hey all! I am down 1.8 lbs but truthfully it's because I was dealing with a really bad flare up of IBS. One of the worst I've had in years and could barely eat (or function) some days. I don't recommend this as a weight loss method. I also lost a close relative (he had been battling melanoma for years) so it was a difficult week. Please make sure you are vigilant about taking care of your skin! It was heartbreaking to lose him but I take solace in the fact he is no longer suffering. I hope everyone had a good week. Happy Easter/Passover if you celebrate!
  7. Down a pound this week! That's two weeks in a row of loss, which is nice after five weeks in a row with the same weight. I've been dealing with a lot of stomach issues lately, so that makes losing weight easier but I guess when life gives you lemons, you lose weight. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
  8. Ah that makes sense. I know the UK was seeing a huge spike in cases. Usually they are 2-3 weeks ahead of where I am in the US so I expect we will be having high case numbers in my part of the country soon unfortunately! I hope you don't have anything lingering and that you are feeling better!
  9. Ah 0.2 could just be water weight as well, so have hope for next week! Hey it happens! It's not always a linear downward trend, you'll get back on track. Sorry to hear that? Are you in the UK? I understand COVID is surging there now so here in the US we are probably 3 weeks or so away from it. I am hearing more and more people getting it again. Good luck with your recovery!
  10. Hey that sounds like fun! And who doesn't love Coke Zero and Slim Jims! Sounds like a fun time though! Glad you were able to get to the bottom of the issue. I hope your bout of COVID wasn't too bad! I think with this latest variant of the variant we will all be exposed to it soon, if we haven't had it yet. Nice work being down 1.6 though! I hear this! I was the same weight five weeks in a row. It took a bad stomach issue for me to lose weight but I guess we need to take progress where we can get it ha. Good luck with your tracking this week!
  11. Week 1 in the books! Down 0.8 and I will take it. The goal is around a pound a week and after being stuck on the exact same weight for five weeks, that is two weeks in a row with a loss. I hope everyone had a great week! Anyone up to anything fun this weekend?
  12. Thank you for bringing the challenge back! This is really helpful for me. The goal is to be down to 183 by the end. I'm heading to Ireland for some tourism/family visits and would love to be healthier for it. Good luck everyone!
  13. Thank you! The race went well! I exceeded my goal so that was nice! I am very sore and tweaked a muscle in my leg, but nothing too bad. It was freezing last Sunday up here in the northeast but once you get running, it isn't too bad!
  14. Welp, I end the challenge with the EXACT. SAME. WEIGHT. for the last five weeks. I don't think that has ever happened to me. I ended up losing three pounds, which is good! But nowhere near my goal of 12. Ultimately, a net loss is better than gaining, but I am a bit disappointed. I simply am eating too much. I'm consistently going over my MFP calorie limit, it's that simple. But, I am ready to have a good spring! Good luck to everyone with your final weigh-ins and have a wonderful weekend!
