  1. Day 2: Workout: Darebee Foundation Day 2. I couldn't do the lunge steps because of my knees and general bad condition so I did squats instead. Meal: Cobb Salad from Red Robin.
  2. Day 1: Workout: Darebee Foundation Day 1 Meal: Leftover steak & veggies, eaten at about 10:30am.
  3. I was active in these forums a few years ago and had some real success, then lost my motivation, got sidetracked... you know, all the same excuses. A few things have happened since then - I've changed jobs, including working from home full time, my husband nearly died a few times (he got better), he lost one job and left another, I've gone on anti-anxiety medication and am considering going off, a pandemic broke out and the world lost what was left of its mind, and my elderly cat passed away last month. And yet...I'm exactly where I was and where I feel I've always been. How can ev
  4. So do I! I've been dealing with an up to 2-hour commute for over 10 years now, so saving some time and gas is a huge benefit!
  5. So my weight has been bouncing all over the place. Since the last Tuesday (when I last posted) my weight hovered around 231lbs, then down to 229.4 on Saturday, back up to 231.8 on Monday, and 232 on Tuesday. This morning, I'm at 227.4. Let's see how long I stay there. I think I'm still mostly losing water weight, which is why I'm fluctuating so much. Which is fine, lugging around liters of extra water for no reason isn't good - I'm not a camel about to cross the Sahara, after all. And the ketosis will do its thing as long as I give it time. Good news on the
  6. Quick work-break update: My weight yesterday was 232.8 pounds (down from a starting weight of 236). As of this morning, I'd rebounded slightly less than a pound to 234.6. This is normal for me - rather than gradual, consistent loss, I'll suddenly drop 3-4 pounds overnight, then bounce back a pound to pound & a half (depends on how big the sudden drop was). Then that'll be my new normal for the next several days. I've been doing well on keto and as predicted, my hunger has dropped off. I get hungry less often and less food fills me up. Now I just have to tackle my bo
  7. Thank you! It's good to be back.
  8. @Rookie Thank you for the horse pics! they're beauties!
  9. The mind boggles at a Belgian/Quarter Horse cross. How many hands is she? Which side does she take after - is she the biggest QH ever, or the smallest Belgian? Also, was the cross intentional, or did someone's stud go wandering? Badgering minds want to know!
  10. 1. Bridges. I usually do 2-3 sets of 20 reps. 2. I'm not sure what they're called so I can't find a gif, but you lay on your back with one knee bent so your foot is flat on the floor. Rest said foot on a small ball, like a baseball or lacrosse ball, and roll your foot forward until your leg is extended straight, then roll it back. The ball will move from under your foot to about mid-calf. The challenge is to keep the ball under your foot/leg in a straight line and the rest of your body still. The PT said that this is to retrain my body to recognize what straight and not hyper-flexe
  11. Following for mutual keto-weight-loss goals!
  12. Thank you! Wish granted.... Update: Last night's dinner wasn't very keto - my husband had picked up stuffed peppers from Costco, which were really tasty, but the stuffing had rice in it. Not a huge amount of rice but some. So I just had one and a small salad to minimize the damage. And now I'm thinking of a recipe for "unstuffed" peppers - ground Italian sausage browned with just enough tomato sauce to give it some cohesion, and served over sautéed sliced peppers and onions. Maybe topped with mozzarella and parm and run under the broiler? I think it'd be faster than stuffing the p
  13. Hello Fellow Rebels! I'm returning after a long and unintended hiatus. You ever get to a point where you just don't feel like participating in the forums, even tho you know it helps you stay on track? Coming up with new challenges (that are really the same old challenges), posting regularly, the pressure of finding new and relevant cat gifs... I just didn't want to do it anymore so I stopped, telling myself that I'd just keep going on my own. I don't think I need to tell you how that worked out. A few weeks ago, I started lurking again. Not posting anything
  14. That doesn't surprise me; at the time this took place, you would have been one of the 20-somethings getting it explained (assuming you would've been hanging around in the ladies' room).
