  1. It's been a hot minute since I've been here. I have gained quite a bit of weight, had a few injuries, moved, lost myself, found myself, lost myself again, lost my precious furbaby, evaded Covid, and finally, have been awakened by something in the air. My main quest: Get to 145lbs and can bench 160lbs or higher. I want strength. Smart goals Keto (under 25g net carbs per day) Workout at least 2 times a week doing bodyweight workouts and walk 3x a week Meditate at least 4x a week. I guess I should re-introduce myself at this point. I’m 40 now
  2. Man I'm having a bad day. Like, a really bad day. I worked out this morning and with this stupid cough I couldn't really get through it without stopping a lot to drink water and stop coughing. I couldn't keep my breath. I know it's shark week for me, and I know what that means and yet...I can't help depressing myself. I want so badly to be thin and pretty. I try to say that I want to be healthy for me, and that is true, I do want to be healthy for me. But I also just want to be normal. I just feel like I'm not doing enough and I need to work harder. I need to punish myself more. Ugh.
  3. Ok so the past 2 days I have had small but good victories. 1. I passed on pancakes. TWICE. 2. I started eating a salad a day. 3. I hit 1500 in calories the entire week. 4. I worked on and finished a starter website. GOOD STUFF! I shall continue this trend, and hopefully since I'm hitting my food goals I'll start losing weight. Now that the plague is mostly gone (minus a cough that won't go away) I'll start doing workouts again, starting tomorrow. I decided since everybody says it takes food I'm going to wait before I spend $40 a month on a gy
  4. Yes! I just finished a tiny project and man I have a loooong way to go. But I thank you and probably will be asking you for help lol.
  5. I'm rather late on this, and I know it. It's what, Jan 8th? ugh. I wanted to start Jan 1st but yay me caught the plague from someone and I have been nearly dead for 2 weeks. Ok let me not start off being my normal grumpy dragon self, let me at least put some stats down and what I plan to accomplish. Age in human years: 37 Weight: 299-303lbs (depending) Human form height: 5'4" Ideal human form weight: 135 lbs What I want to accomplish in 2018: So I know we're not supposed to put in "lose xlbs" or whatever so I'm going to do it opposite. There's a num
  6. I feel like I failed myself. But that I didn't. I stayed around the same weight, but, I also started to do workouts, I started to really pay attention to my life choices, and I have decided on what I want to do going forward. That's kind of a 50/50 win/loss type thing. The only real reason why I think I "failed" this week, is because I got a viral infection and it's been painful to do much of anything. It's like I had the flu, with fever, coughing, sore throat, dizziness, all the works but it's not a flu strain. I managed to get a workout in on Tuesday, and even went up to 30lbs r
  7. There's something about myself that I had an epiphany about. I figure it's something I should have picked up years and years ago, and despite what I've been trying it's just now donned on me. I don't need a lot of food to survive. Also that I don't really like OMAD. I need a bigger window of like 2-3 hours to eat foods and not feel awful. I guess the fact that fasting has become a thing for me lately that I even really put much thought into it. Well, much good thought into it. Sure I'd be angry at myself, yell at myself and cuss myself out because I don't have the gene
  8. I have had a hellish week. Finals in the term have pushed me to the limit, at about 8pm every night I'm so tired I can barely think straight. Thank the Force for Halo Top. I can't even eat the whole thing in one sitting so that 260 calories gets stretched to like 2-3 days. Either way I enjoy the hell out of it. Saturday I made plans to go to the mall and get some stuff for my family for Christmas. This is something that's so huge to me, it's kind of crazy. Before, it took everything I had to be able to walk in Walmart without feeling like I didn't belong there. For me to think "he
  9. Used my resistance bands for the first time today. Was great! I also did a full body workout with them and I am tired but not sore which is good. Cooldowns are ftw. I did fantastic in the food department today. I had a giant salad for lunch and meatballs I got from Ikea with Brussels sprouts and onions that I sauteed in some butter to go with it. I ended up with 1187 calories for the day with 48 carbs. A little more calorie and carb than I want but it's a big improvement over my mess up yesterday. AND the most important thing to mention here is that I ate when I was hungry AND wa
  10. Yes. Take today, i didnt eat much but god it feels awful putting all that in your face all at once. Some days I feel like being full would be awesome but some days it's really not.
  11. I screwed up today. It's not really going to set me back or anything, but it for sure confirms what I need to do. I was supposed to fast today and I ended up not only not doing it, but I ate 2 batter dipped fish piecs and some of the chocolate pudding in the fridge. Feeling pretty upset w/myself. So tomorrow I'm contemplating a very small OMAD: 2 eggs, a bacon, 1 boiled egg and a salad and call it a day. It's going to be about 767 calories. I'm trying not to do that thing I used to do where when I messed up I'd go halls to the wall crazy about it. I'm also trying to ra
  12. So today I did another omad. I am able to separate my body's hunger from my brain's desire to eat. Like right now, I'm 20% hungry. Just enough to feel it. My brain is trying to get me to eat something but I refuse. I can wait until tomorrow. My big issue though is that Friday, Saturday and Sundays are family days and I don't really know what they are going to be doing all the time. If I go omad those days, I may not enjoy it. So I think for the time being I'm going to just do it M-Th. I may even completely do a 24 hour fast on Wednesdays. Today I did my bodyweight work
  13. Hi fellow biker! I have been doing https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/beginner-body-weight-workout-burn-fat-build-muscle/ For the past 2 weeks, 3 times a week. Instead of using a milk jug I have resistance bands that I've been using. I do like this, and I'm breathing like I ran from Godzilla afterwards but it doesn't feel like I'm doing enough. I may switch out my 10lb bands for 15lbs and have a go, see if that works. I also have been thinking about adding some ankle weights and maybe a weighted shirt to keep on me on a constant basis.
  14. My main quest: Get to 145lbs and can bench 160lbs or higher. Smart goals 1. Eat one meal a day (omad). 2. Eat paleo 80/20. 3. Workout at least 2 times a week doing bodyweight workouts I guess I should introduce myself since that’s next in the line. I’m 37, I’m a dragon, I like nerdy stuff. I just finished watching The Tick on Amazon and it was amazing. Go watch it. I also draw, play ffxiv and sometimes wow, and I’m currently going to college to try to become a web developer. I just bought a Kawasaki Vulcan S 650 that I named Le
  15. Damn. Thats some rough crap there. But you sound like you're turning that anger into something worthwhile. I wish you the best in your journey, and kick ass along the way.
