  1. In 2017, I saw my country implode and someone close to me unexpectedly die. The stench of this year may never come out of my hair. 2018, however, is going to be a Year Without Steaming Garbage. I declare it so. The obvious opposite of trash? Recycling! Let's follow this metaphor into concrete plans! Reduce - bad dietary choices! - hide junk food & rum in cupboards so they're annoying to access; do not buy any replacements for these items - drink 1-2 days week/max - keep the house full of fruits & yogurt instead Re-use - items I already have! - no online shopping unless something is genuinely needed! (think carefully: do I actually require this thing, or will a similar thing suffice?) - if I feel like getting something new to me, hit up a library, thrift store or independently-owned business! - whittle down 4 books from my in-person TBR pile; then give to charity/sell to used bookstore (see below) Recycle - "let it go" - literally: go through clothes & other items I own, donate/trash what I don't use - figuratively: meditation. Download a meditation app & really give it a go. I've always failed catastrophically at meditation. This will be my final attempt before abandoning it for life. I will be sure to mark each failing with an Oscar the Grouch GIF so you can clearly, easily locate them. Though I imagine you'll be able to smell them from a mile away. JOIN ME!
  2. So here we are. Break week of August challenge. I have no idea what I am doing atm. Tapatalk is on the fritz so I am typing on my teeny tiny phone browser. Life is weird. I am weighing in Monday at 94.2kg. I have been in a plateau around 95kg for the last 7 months. I have been fighting myself, driving myself slowly crazier and crazier to a point where some part of me was seriously considering cutting calories severely for a month or so, just to get out of this rut. I. WILL. NOT. Though. It has taken years to get to that horrible start weight (103kg April 2015), it will take more than a month to get out of it. What good is starving myself, losing my gains, possibly even screwing up my relationship with food and eating... So the actual plan? Message to self - listen up missy: 1. Eat better. Eat whole foods as much as possible. Limit (but not banned) starchies (bread, pasta, rice, potatoes...). Eat high quality fats (within limits - it's okay, just don't go crazy). Eat meat consciously. Eat regularly, manage hunger, be smart about it all. 2. Drink your gorram water. 1l bare minimum, 2l is the actual goal! 3. Go to sleep at a decent hour, please! 4. It's summer, find something fun to do, enjoy life, please! 5. Keep doing the little things that improve quality of living in your habitat, girl, you know it's good for you. And lastly 6. Log. It. All. And. Stay. In. Touch. Mfp for food and exercise, and such. Hop on here to keep in touch about how things go overall. Go and check on your friends, too.
  3. Challenge #1 Diet: Replace processed evening snacks with fresh juice, smoothie or fresh fruit. Diet: Hit sugar cravings with a glass of water and fresh veggie. Fitness: Complete Body Weight work out twice a week. Level Up: Clean garage/other for 15 min. before watching TV HELP: This does feel too easy for me. I am inclined to add more. I am 33, 210lbs, predisposed toward active fun, already include fruit and veggies in my diet. My primary issue is very little discipline. If anyone has suggestions or input for my first challenge, let me know.
  4. Hello again... this is the continuation of a thread that began last challenge (Link). We talk about all things kitchen, cooking and eating. I try to cook one meal a weak and post the pictures here. You are free to set your own rules. So lets get cooking... During the last week of the last challenge i was sick and sleept a lot. I didn't really cook, but tried various smoothies. These following two i like best: * 2 Bananas, a cup full of spinache, apple juice, a lime * 2 Bananas, almonds, a spoonful of honey, milk
  5. I dropped out my last challenge (January) because I got caught up buying a house. Now we're in a new house, and things have settled back down. I bought a rack for my garage, and now I'm back to lifting. If any of this seems short, it's because the internet ate the previous thread I started, so now I'm full of rage. Anyway here are the goals. Goal 1: Get back in the groove. My workout notebook shows my last official lifting session to be around the end of August last year. Between moving, changing gyms, and moving my workout time, I couldn't maintain a steady schedule. Now I have my own rig in the garage and I can do what I want with the equipment I want. I've been doing the SL 5X5 for the past two weeks. I'm starting with this for a few reasons. 1) It's quick and easy, so it helps me build a routine. 2) It's helping me regain my lost mobility. 3) Weight plates are expensive and it will keep me from having to buy more weights just yet. My workout plan for this go round will be... MWF - lift. T,Th - some form of "Cardio" Sat - Conditioning work. Sun - Be lazy. Goal 2: More "Cardio" I'm treating this as anything that keeps me moving for an extended period of time. Yard work will mostly fill this I think. Goal 3: Keep it "clean" I'm borowing from some of the slow carb rules these days. I eat good six days a week, and do whatever on Saturdays. Goal 4: Projects everywhere! I've got quite a few projects brewing in the back of my head. The big one I want to finish is taking care of a spot that is washing in my back yard where a ditch runs through. I'll give weekly updates on my projects.
