  1. Well, the challenge is over. I have managed to lose almost twenty pounds over the course of the four weeks. I haven't managed to push myself to exercise daily in the morning, and I imagine if I were to incorporate that into my morning routines, it would be an even larger amount lost. I've also started taking my medications again since I thankfully have insurance again and I'm seeing my therapist again starting today. I was supposed to see her Friday but network issues made it a failed connection. I've rescheduled for this evening, so fingers crossed. Many thanks to the folks who lurked, lik
  2. It's the final week, so far I've managed to stay at least 95% Paleo with all of my meals, dropped below 300 pounds again (296 Woohoo!), on most mornings I've gotten up and did mostly everything I wanted to do except exercise...which is the most important and finally, I've been attempting to do more productive things, laundry, walks, play outside with my family. I also have made an appointment with my psychiatrist and psychologist too for Friday. I've been taking my prescriptions again after stopping due to the fear of running out, but I'm honestly on the fence about whether or not I'd like t
  3. I understand that, sometimes life does get in the way. The issue I have with it is too often do I use that excuse. It's almost as if I've allowed nothing to become my standard. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. Gods bless, two weeks in and honestly the only thing I'm maintaining is nothing. These past two weeks have been flooded with depression and anxiety. Normally I'd give up trying by now, and wait to start again. Which obviously has never came to fruition...so let's destroy these last two weeks by being successful.

  5. I think that some of my issues with completing quest or tasks if you will is I always seem to pile on too much. So.. in light of that, here we go: Maintain Paleo Diet 100%, save one cheat meal on either Saturday or Sunday. Wake up early enough to do my own personal Miracle Morning. I'll explain it in detail below 0:Spend more time doing constructive things. i.e. fold laundry, go on walk with family, play outside and so on My Miracle Morning should, SHOULD be: Wake up at 4:05 am CST. Exercise with either PiYo or Steve's Beginner Body Weight Workout.Start kettle and take a shower.Ma
  6. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” While this quote is widely attributed to Winston Churchill, there's some who argue it's true source. I'm off topic, please pay no heed to my ramblings. It's easy for me to lose track sometimes... Ok, ok all the time. I've been on this site for sometime. During that time I've never followed through any of my side quests to complete my end game quest. It's not entirely uncommon for me to begin anything and sprint right into the field of battle, if you will, and for some time I will excel, push through the
  7. I'm sitting here in the break room at the bank, and I just ate lunch. The bank I work at is going through some radical changes very soon, and I have been proclaiming that I was going to go through some radical changes myself for years. For the most part, those changes have not came to fruition. I did score a good job, with potential to move up and I am working on that. Spirtiually and physically I am severely lagging behind. As I've done for years. Today is the day. No longer will I shrug off the things I know I must do to better myself.
  8. I managed to get through my first workout of the year finally, and honestly I feel great...but I am rather sore. I have had a late start, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to succeed this time, there's an extra week this time around! At the moment, I'm sweating like poor Nicky-boy here, but you know what, that's a good thing! Today is going to be a great day, and I leave you all with these positive affirmations I say daily...or did and I'm going to start again. Just for today, I will be grateful.Just for today, I will not anger.Just for today, I will not worry.Just for today,
  9. Almost all of my attempts at doing this have been mostly failures, this is in fact due to my mental illnesses plaguing me night and day. Whether it's the small little voice in my head asking the dreaded What's the point? Or simply letting my anxiety convince me that it's not a good idea to do the thing. I know that I always say this is the time for real... and I mean it, I even trimmed up my beard drastically to prove a point. (Have no fear the bearded one is still here and will return in his full glory soonish). So: I'm thirty years old and reside in the good ol' South ( a place I rather
  10. Week Four is upon us all and unfortuantely for me, I haven't accomplished much of bloody anything. However, that doesn't mean I'm giving up. My goal is to accomplish everything this week on my list. On a side note, one thing I have accomplished is to complete my blót for Jul (sorry for the italics, I don't yet know how to alt code with Ubuntu.). I also managed to fit into a shirt better that I hadn't been able to thanks to food poisoning late last week. Though I must say that's not the way I wanted to lose weight by any means. At any rate, this week still has many possibilities, a
  11. So essentially like my fiancee and me, just a little bit of this and that, haha. It's always fun to find other spiritual folks for me.
  12. Thank as always for the kind words, my friend. Other nicknames of course I've gained over the course of my life are "Big Red", "Big Man", "Fat boy" and so on. Ass-hats are generally rather cruel and unoriginal thus the lackluster nicknames the unimportant folks gave me. You are right however, there's always another dawn. I've been severely slacking, and you know what, that's ok. I'm my own person, and I can and will achieve greatness.
  13. Well, it’s Tiwsdæg and I could only get through one set of the workout without feeling nauseous this morning. Gods bless, I do forgive myself for failing in doing that, but at the same time I’m aggravated and upset. I’ll attempt this again later today. I did however increase the weight by ten and I also increased the amount of push-ups I do as well, so there’s that to be proud of. I also took time out this morning to reflect on the Rune of the day, “Rad” in Anglo-Saxon Futhorc or “Raidho” in Elder Futhark. The rune represents the need for the start of a journey, whether it be physically or
