  1. I had started off so well! During the pre-challenge week, I got all my ducks in a row, loaded the freezer with frozen fruit for my smoothies, and the fridge with greens and veggies for my salads. I did my running and biking as I would during the challenge. Over the weekend before challenge began I went on not one, but two grueling mountain bike rides. Come Monday, I was a little tired, but I got up at my usual 5am, drank my coffee, got the dog and headed to the trail. Cruising along, not even in my first half mile and BAM, l'm on my face. I went down like a sack of potatoes. I hit

  3. Good luck G, and let the games begin!!!!
  4. Like my grandma used to tell me, "Things can only be bad for so long and then they HAVE to turn around.". Good luck on the journey. You made it through what happened to your friend, so in a way you're already a badass. Breathe deeply, work hard, and be kind (though not necessarily easy) to yourself.

    thanks mmead0105. I've done a trial run and so far, they've kept me full. I do add cheese and ranch dressing since I'm somewhat following the atkins diet.

    Hey IronMeg, thanks for the post! An adobe house is an old Mexico/Pueblo method of using thick mud and straw bricks to build with. Lots of these type of houses in the desert southwest of the US where they are the original eco-building material. The walls are a foot thick, so they stay crazy cool in the summer (despite 100 degree temps) and retain heat in the winter. A lot like cobb houses, but with a little more structure.

    First challenge. Not too hard. Not too easy. Hopefully, just right. Food Salads for dinner Monday through Friday - 1 point for each day. Protein smoothies for breakfast Monday through Friday - 1 point for each day. Bonus points for doing this on weekends. Fitness Run 3 miles x 3 per week - 3 points for each run Cycle x 2 days per week - 2 points for each ride Life One mini construction project per week - 5 points per project (We're renovating an old adobe and we're about 50% finished) Reward for scoring at least 100 p
  8. Alas, the time has come. No more half-assed attempts. No more whiny excuses. I used to be quite the bad ass. Mountain biker, kayaker, rock climber. If it was outdoors and didn't require killing something, I was in. But then, the injuries started piling up. Left knee no cartiledge. Right thumb, right big toe, osteoarthritis. Then the slammer, rheumatoid arthritis. Shit man, I'm falling apart, my life is over, I can't do the things I love. So I wallowed in this place for many years, taking the drugs, throwing the drugs out the window, hating life. I ate too much, exercised
  9. Get you a crockpot, which can be had fer cheap at thrift stores, throw in a hunk 'o meat and cut up potatoes. When it's closer to done, throw in a package of frozen veggies. Its like cooking but not, and it's done when you come home in the evening. Plus, you have food for the rest of the week, easy!
  10. Dig reading your posts, and your funny gifs. You inspire me. Keep up the good work!
