  1. Hey All, I'm back. Last challenge went well, I didn't hit everything I wanted to, but life is a process. Big Picture *Current Weight: 240lbs *Goal Weight: 175lbs swinging for the fences here, I haven't seen this since high school 16 years ago *Short Term Goal: Weigh 235lbs by the end of the challenge. Adulting: *Two items from Flylady's detail cleaning per day *One more thing that is adultish here Movement: *Simple and Sinister 5 times a week *Fighter Pullup Program 5 times a week Eating: *Practice 16/8 Int
  2. Wow I can't believe the 4 week is done already. That snuck up super fast. To recap: Weigh under 240 at the end of the challenge: Fail. I held pretty steady throughout around 242. I bounced down to 240.2 at the lowest but keep bouncing around. I did drop about 3 lbs over the challenge so I at least made progress. Eat at least 2 servings of veggies and 1 of fruit: This has gone really well. My lunches now have carrots and snap peas as an always include. Fruit I don't have a huge yen for them so it is more of a struggle to remember to throw an apple in my lunch bag. Track using MyF
  3. I'm jealous of your rosemary and basil. For whatever reason I can't grow mint or rosemary. The two things that are supposed to be unkillable I've managed to kill multiple times.
  4. I tried to do the rows using the table once and just about flipped it over onto me. Definitely recommend the door frame version.
  5. Hey Nerd Family. Sorry I haven't been checking in. Life keeps going on. We've been doing Fallish things, pumpkin patches and the like. So far the challenge has been going mostly well. I haven't been hitting 100% on everything, but I am doing better than I was before the challenge. Food Eat Fruits and Veggies: I've improved on this one a lot. I've settled into more of a routine now of bringing Carrots, Sugar snap peas, string cheese, and a kind bar for lunches. Sometimes I'll add some leftovers from the night before. This "standard" lunch makes getting ready in the mornings a l
  6. Your episode recaps are awesome. I am getting more and more curious about Avatar and need to find a way to watch it.
  7. I know for a lot of people when they hear Gremlins, Gizmo is what comes to mind. For me at least, Gremlins always evokes this:
  8. If you have Kindle Unlimited The Unbelieveable Mr. Brownstone is free and pretty similar to Dresden. Not as rich or in depth, but a fun cotton candy kind of read.
  9. Hey All, I'm not dead yet. We had an awesome weekend, went apple picking and did fallish stuff. Lots of fun. Started reading Harry Potter book 1 with the miniBrowncoat and he has been loving it. I'm already starting to line up other books that we can read together as a family, my wife has firmly reiterated that I am a nerd =) As if she didn't already know this. (The Hobbit; Princess Bride,;Phantom Tollbooth; The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; I'm torn as to whether we should read Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban right away or if we should squirrel them away for a little bit. I wa
  10. Hey all, here's a quick update. Food has been going well. I've hit the my goal of 1 serving fruit and 2 servings veggies for the last 3 days. IF (16/8) only happened one day so far, so that could be better. Also have 2 days of food on MyFitnessPal. MFP has been the real eye opener so far. I'm not looking to have exact measurements of everything, but it is shocking how quick all the little snacks add up. After seeing that, I am flipping my food goals for this challenge so that IF (16/8) is my stretch goal and using MFP to track things is one of my main goals. I'll get a lot more benefi
  11. I'll second the hardboiled eggs. They are awesomely easy. Around Easter I had them for about a month. Lunch planning was super easy, just grab 2 and go. Nom Nom Paleo has an easy way to spice them up a bit too.
  12. Zombieland, S&S, and swords... Can't think of a single thing not to like. For accoustic guitar tracks to fit the zombie apocalypse, the Diablo soundtracks come to mind.
