  1. First I want to say this. It is unfortunate about your current living situation. I am glad to you are focusing on taking care of yourself and reaching out for help I know it can be hard. Also I am sorry that you do not have people that are immediately close to you that are supportive of your goals. Keep focus on your goals you got this. When your able prepare food for yourself I would agree focus on quality proteins and vegetables while minimizing added sugar. These are my tips for eating healthy and balanced no matter where your journey leads because situations can change and these are things I make sure I have on hand. I would try to find a thermos (preferable microwavable one at the thrift or second hand store) and water bottle. Why because there are lot of healthy recipes out there that you can cook in a thermos (I work in Security- I look for portable) and most places have free water (it also helps you avoid sugary drinks). Things that I keep on that shelf stable and healthy I would keep. For protein: Tuna or salmon pouches (unflavored tends to be lowering sodium) Peanut Butter(or PB powder (you can just add water and has less sugar than traditional)) String cheese (it last longer refrigerated but it is very portable) For Vegetables: I go with low sodium canned ones But fresh is always the way to go.(my go to at work is either hummus and carrots or PB and celery(portability reasons)) Grains/Starches: Quaker makes a gluten free unsweetened hot cereal (oatmeal) in single serving packs -Rice and Beans. Fruits: If I cannot get fresh fruit I go with plain unsweetened applesauce (Walmart and Aldi have the best brands) After all you got this... focus on the habits and not the weight... There is nothing you cannot do.
  2. First, I would recommend to you please stop eating protein powder and oatmeal mostly diet. I would have to agree switch up your proteins/diets and embrace the rainbow when it comes to vegetables because they have a lot of the micro nutrients that you body needs to function. Please eat vegetables. Okay 4,500kCal is a lot for just about anyone unless you are trying to be Gregor Clegane from Game of Thrones. If that is your goal in fitness you have workout a least 1hr day to burn that many kCal (but that still is based on you base metabolic rate) but otherwise work up to it (30 min is not enough). Otherwise I have to agree with what has said before.
  3. Okay, I so far I feel that may a have bitten off more than I can chew even with though my quest are small. So, I have been walking, better yet wondering when I know that I won't be able to "excerise" the amount of time that I want. I have be trying to keep vegetables at every meal but it is hard for breakfast. (Ideas are welcomed). Soda is a little harder if I forget to bring a water bottle and it is the only thing offered in the space that I am in. Positive of not using the snooze button is that I learned about my rhythm about getting up in going in the morning.
  4. Okay I have to say that I have accomplished a lot of things that I did not know I a the ability to do after "all to define is to limit" I was able to start exercising more I lost 30lb/15.6kg and finally truly embrace this journey that I am on. But I still want to keep this going as I start to fully accept the person that I am. With that being said I want try to kick it up just a little more to start the new year. Diet/ Fitness Quest: I want to work at least 10-15 minutes a day Eat a serving Vegetables at every meal Minimize soda consumption by start with no more that 2 sodas per week Life Quest: Not use the use the snooze but at all. I just to remember every try counts and most of all I have to just start. Good Luck to everyone
  5. My is usually one of the following always with green tea with no sweetner. - Plain Greek yogurt with a small handful of smashed fruit and 1/2tsp of Vanilla Extract -Smoothie: Frozen Spinach, Frozen Kale, Apple, Banana, Mango(If I have some) and water - 1 egg with spinach and mushroom and a slice of toast or 1/2 potato oven roasted (weekends mainly)
  6. I know that I am late to posting but I would have to agree with what has been said so far. But I would also add; see if you can find a two piece NATO strap (cheap nato straps sells them) I like them for there ruggedness and I would purchase a nickel testing kit (I have one for when I want to know if the is any nickel in a belt jewelry etc.)
  7. Thank you, who would have thought a simple act would change so much.
  8. Weekly update. Despite the fact that I have out of the house working late all week it has went really well. I had the urge to hit that snooze button a couple of times because of late nights but choose not to. And so far my I have noticed that I am a not as rushed as before. But also the desserts I have started to make my tea before I get to work which I have noticed that by doing so it has slowed down my hurry to kitchen at my office first thing in the morning (which is when all the sweets first arrive in the office from our vendors and clients) this in turn allows me to avoid a lot of temptation. Also I was able to turn down desserts a client meeting (yeah I guess). I started to exercise I again which was great because I miss that feeling of sense of accomplishment afterwards that comes afterwards.
  9. I was more is saw of it and wonder if I could do it but I knew it would be a lot of hard work and practice to get there.
  10. A ) At max level: I would be able to move through anything that comes at me with ease because I would be mentally and physically prepared for it. So overall health would be important for me. My greatest strengths for an adventure party would my endurance the work through tough situations, my focus on the details, my ability to learn/retain new information and my creativity/ingenuity. I really would say that I would be the support that has the ability to lead when necessary. B ) Goals: Most of the goals on my list are things that I yet to complete off previous goal list This includes: Learn/Improve on four languages (Spanish, French, Swedish, ASL) Learn guitar Eat more vegetables Try to use a salmon ladder and complete a Spartan Race or something similar C ) The comparison At first it seemed that my goals and where all over the place but I realized that they do have one thing in common with my max level which is my overall health.
  11. Hey, to everyone here. As the progress one I am trying to maintain the focus on things that I tried to do in the past but failed a see through to the end. One of those things is my health and focus on journey to become a better version of myself. With that being said I am ready to be more focused on this challenge than before. So here are my Quest to complete during the next 4 weeks: Fitness/Health Quest Only have dessert one per week. I have realized that over the past few years I have indulged to much at work and with friend. Which has lead me to not work out as much as I would like. Get back to working out. I started doing this before but life got in the way. But I would like to say no more. Limit the amount of fast food to traveling only/ limit myself on the menu This one will be one of the harder ones because: we have clients come in and provided us with lunch I work near a lot of these types of restaurants I also work long odd hours as the weather warms up Finally the level up life quest: To stop hitting the snooze button on the alarm when it is time to wake up. This one is specifically hard because it forces me not be a slow moving turtle in the morning and possibly make not in a hurry as much through life. If you have any advice on how tackle these I am always open to it.
  12. Thanks to everyone who responded to this thread. I want to recap this with some lessons that I have learned over this last challenge. Lessons: 1. For not drinking soda the lesson is always have a water bottle ready to be filled because sometime options can be limited. This happened to me a couple of times where the only beverage that was available was soda because they ran out of water or any other beverage that was not soda (curse you sugar industry ) 2. Set and let others know your guidelines so they don't get pissy when you do not respond back to them right a way because you want less screen time for yourself.
  13. Hello to everyone that reads this. I know that I am late posting but I wanted to establish what I have already started on in this challenge. Like always 3 health and 1 level up goal. To add what I have been doing. My Health challenges: 1 serving of a green vegetable per day No soda (okay I have been cutting back on this item and now feel it is the right time try to push this challenge) Replace the previous with 20ox/1L of water a day. Level up goal: I need focus on having a fresh start everyday no screens after 9:30pm everyday Like is said that I know that I am late to posting but so far I been doing pretty well on the my this challenge except with the lack of screens after 9:30pm but still working trying help create that as a habit. Encouragement and advice is always welcome.
  14. Thanks Dilnad and jenglish for your input and I hopefully be able to making to a running store in the next week or so.
