  1. Tuesday 9/19: Cardio - I stuck to the plan today and did my cardio. I'm proud of myself. However, the real test will come on Tuesday or Wednesday next week, that seems to be when I fall off track with new workout commitments. I decided to extend it to 20 minutes instead of 15 because I can do 20 and if I can, then I should. Babying myself accomplishes nothing. - I didn't do as well with eating today. As expected, I was much hungrier today than I was yesterday. I was also very sore, so I expect my body was looking for calories to help my muscles repair. The way I feel hunger is stra
  2. Monday 9/18: Back and Bicep - Today went well. The gym was not as crowded as I thought it would be (I couldn't go until 4:00) and I got through my workout without any major obstacles. I had a little trouble motivating myself to go, but I pushed myself over the hump and enjoyed the workout afterwards. Lat Pull 3x10 at 85 lbs Row 3x10 at 45 lbs each arm Low row 3x10 at 85 lbs EZ curl 3x10 at 55 lbs Hammer Curl 3x10 AT 17.5 lbs - Eating went better today than yesterday. I still didn't quite follow the plan. There was a memorial for a family friend today
  3. Sunday 9/17: Active Rest TBD - First day went well. I played in the park with my niece and nephew for a couple hours and it was surprisingly good exercise. - Unfortunately I did less well on eating. We ordered pizza for lunch, and I only had two pieces with salad, but its not exactly in my diet plan. I'll do better on Monday.
  4. Hello zeroh13! Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind. I'm starting with pretty low weight and working up. I used to play football so weight training isn't totally alien, I just haven't done it in a while. As to my weight loss goals, I won't be too hard on myself. However, I've been losing roughly 2.5 lbs a week already just from changing my diet, so I'm really just trying to keep it going. Good luck on the trail =)
  5. Hi Hazard, Sorry I didn't follow the format exactly. I find if I don't plan things out precisely I tend to dick around and procrastinate, then try to do it all at the end. It hasn't been a good strategy, haha. Plus, having a daily goal lets me focus only on that goal so I don't get overwhelmed by the whole project =) Good luck on the trail
  6. Bahahahaha Kae your "modes" hit really close to home. I love that you're aware of your bad habits and are taking steps to avoid them. The "'I'll-start-my-habit-later" mode is particularly problematic for me. Your goals are well thought out and manageable. You're going to do really well with this challenge, I have confidence in you. Good luck on the trail =)
  7. Hi Kae, Nutrition plays a huge role in my weight loss battle strategy =) My meal plan is as follows: Breakfast: 2 egg yolks 6 egg whites 2 organic whole wheat toasts 2 tbsp peanut butter 1 tbsp olive oil Lunch: 8 oz chicken or lean beef 1.5 cups of vegetable of choice - Brussel Sprouts - Broccoli - Green Beens - Asparagus 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp sesame oil 1 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar Snack Rx Bar (you should really try these, they'r
  8. Soooo my first plan was way too complication. This is going to be basic. I'm going to lose 10 lbs in 4 weeks. This comes out to be a reasonable 2.5 lbs per week. It will take me from 297 lbs to 287 lbs. I'll post before and after pictures for my own edification. Goal: Lose 10 lbs Intermediate goals: Week 1: Weigh in at 294.5 or lower Week 2: Weigh in at 291.0 or lower Week 3: Weigh in at 288.5 or lower Week 4: Weigh in at 287.0 or lower (Saturday weigh in, no clothes, before breakfa
  9. Hi guys, I've been trying for many, many years to lose weight. I know it's cliche, but I never was able to make something work. It just never clicked. I did successfully lose about 15 pounds once 3 or 4 years ago, but as soon as school started up again I gained it all back. Years later it has gotten to the point where my doctor said I would have serious complications unless I changed my lifestyle. In fact, my insulin resistance has damaged my eyesight, the extra weight caused plantar faciitis, and I developed severe GERD. On another level, my weight caused me to stop doing many of
  10. Hello everyone! I'm new to the whole NF community, and I've decided to be a Ranger. IMHO it's the most balanced and versatile of the character classes, plus I almost always play video games as a ranger-type. Further, I love hiking and outdoor sports. A combo of strength and agility is the best preparation for these activities, and to be ready for life in general. I have to say I was a little surprised that so many outdoor activities/skills are in the adventure class instead of with the Rangers. I'm still going to do them for fun, but it was strange they were in another section.
