  1. I've been drinking more water lately, mostly at work. I grab a cup of ice, fill it at the water fountain, and then when I have to go upstairs for something I chug whatever is left and get more water. Yesterday I had a smoothie for breakfast, got a hazelnut latte with less syrup in it, I had a little bit of beef kofta with green salad but I really didn't like it so I ended up buying veggie dumplings, cheddar cheese (to go with my apple), and an almond butter chocolate cup. I had a couple leftover thin wheat/almond pancakes to satisfy a bready craving, but then had a serving of mushroom soup.
  2. I am quite sore today. Friday was rehab so I worked out pretty hard. Yesterday I went hiking around Valley Forge for ~2 hours, which resulted in a crew of very sluggish people. I managed to jump over most of the stinging nettle onthe one trail, but the rest of the plants kept whipping my legs. However, I got so warm that I was still glad to be wearing shorts. Yes, I checked for ticks. Today I have already done most of my strength training. It's all stuff I can do in a bckroom at work in peices or at my desk. I've been eating pretty well, with a few grainy snacks and meals. We had burger pa
  3. Did some of my exercises yesterday at my desk. Had to stop when we miraculously got busy. I've been walking a lot, so all good there. Not so good on the food front, but Spouse and I are making actual meals more often, except we run out of food part way through the week and end up eating pancakes for dinner, cantelope and two apples for lunch, and a cheese+fruit pack from Starbucks. But hey, doing th ebest I can with what we've got. So lesson learned: buy more food. We went through 10 chicken breasts between Saturday and Tuesday...WTF??
  4. At the advice of some other rebels I am going to pick very easy goals for myself that I can handle and I will just keep doing them past this challenge. Main goal: Lose weight/achieve smaller measurements. Ideally about 30# down. Goal 1: Walk/hike 3x a week. I enjoy walking and hiking around Valley Forge, especially in fall. I've been doing this already for a month or so. Goal 2: Eat smart. Closer to paleo/primal. Have treats, but try not to go overboard. Don't beat myself up for going too crazy once in awhile. Stick to meals that are easy to make and I know I like. Goal 3: Do my stretc
  5. I so needed to hear this today.Yesterday I was such a mess. I dragged myself and my spouse on 1.5 hour walk yesterday to try and motivate myself. It's funny (in a not funny way) because when I set my goals I think that they are totally attainable, but I think you're right. If I just keep up doing maintenance goals then I might be better off. Summer is especially tough on me, heat and humidity are not inspiring to me!
  6. This weekend has really sucked. Very little willpower. Got upset about it today. I'm at a point where I feel a little of "what the hell is the point, I am getting nowhere losing weight" and "I can do this". It is truly awful. Maybe I need a goal other than weight loss that will allow weight loss along the way. I don't know. I'm just getting tired of this crap. My size 14 jeans are a bit tight so I'm pissed about that, I don't want to buy new jeans for fall. I'm also about to get my period so I'm sure that isn't helping. And as you may know with my period comes bloating which means the dress th
  7. Thanks Yea, my feet were killing me the other day and I thought, "Okay, need to just chill".
  8. Oh, I wanted to add that I tried on that dress this morning and it fit just fine. It could've been because I'd just woken up and hadn't eaten anything yet, but we'll see. I'll try again later.
  9. Thanks! Definitely try them out if you're able. I particularly like them because I can do them at home as well. Earlier in the year they had me on an exercise routine that was VERY thorough and I usually spent over an hour at the office getting it all done in addition to seeing the doctor and doing muscle stim.
  10. Just wanted to pop in and say you're doing good! I had a really crappy start and just got back to it, so I know you'll keep up the good work Hope your head is feeling better!
  11. Okay, I've been keeping it together. Sweets: Had a pizzelle yesterday morning. Each evening I've been having a small bowl of Grape Nuts with some raisins, milk, and two drops of liquid stevia for "dessert". No ice cream so far! I'm eating pretty well otherwise. The Spouse brings home italian bread sometimes so I had a big piece last night with butter, but we've been eating tons of cherry tomatoes, avocados, blueberries, etc... Walking: I took a very long walk yesterday. The Spouse missed his bus so he walked and I met him in the middle. All in all I walked/jogged 20~ minutes to meet him, t
  12. I meant to post last week, but I accidentally closed the window and gave up. Basically, the first week or two of this challenge sucked. I got hurt, ate too many sweets, etc. However I've been stretching everyday except yesterday because I forgot and I've been walking 3-4 times a week. At first they were shorter allowing for my back to heal, but I've been doing some good 45 minute power walks this week. I was going to track my treats, but I gave up on a chart, because I can. First week was bad. Second was less bad, with only 3 or 4 treats really. This week is good so far. I had a single square
  13. Long car trips are really awful for me, plus all the time at my desk. I left work early quite a few days last week.
  14. Okay, I updated my challenge to walking instead of jogging because of my back. I think my new long term goal in addition to losing weight is to fully heal. I have had way too many sweets in the last couple of days, but that just means there is room to improve!
  15. Thanks! Woke up with a hurting back this morning for whatever reason. I'm home taking care of it and trying not too eat too badly. I did my stretches yesterday and today (like 4 times so far). Had way too many treats yesterday when I came home early with cramps/back ache. I think I'm going to try to go for a stroll with The Spouse and then I'll ice some more.
