  1. Hey guys 👀 I am trying Weight Watchers (online) aka glorified calorie counting but hopefully it is different enough from calorie counting that my brain will be happier about doing it. I am not aiming for perfection this challenge. Goal 1 : Try Weight Watchers Week 0 - Aim for 50% success 🙅‍♀️ Week 1 - Aim for 60% success 🙅‍♀️ Week 2 - Aim for 70% success Week 3 - Aim for 80% success Week 4+5 - Maintain 80% success Goal 2: Chip away at things that are causing me stress / annoyance - Clear garage out - Clean/organize garage - De-clutter reading nook area - Clear off table - Put away canning stuff - Clean camp bedding stuff - Purge and organize clothes - clean out crispers in fridge cause they somehow have turkey juice Goal 3: Get the adulting done - Sign Winnie up for puppy classes - Renew License sticker - Renew dog licenses - Turn off outdoor water - Do something about patio furniture for winter
  2. My main goal for this challenge is to start the downwards trend of my weight. - track food in MFP daily - aim for 2200 calories intake per day - do the walking mini challenge ✅ Now 2200 calories is higher than I’ve tried in the past and I won’t lose weight fast with that but I am trying something new. I am experimenting with a smaller deficit because I have a pattern where I do really good for awhile then go a bit crazy for a week straight. I have some fun and a bit crazy news ☺️ Mr.R and I decided to bring home my favourite puppy from his parents litter. She’s just so sweet and we bonded with her and we think maybe her with us. So we are very excited haha 😂 I’m hoping she will be able to become my barn dog because the other 3 failed in that department.
  3. Last challenge was a bit crazy for me to say the least but here we are! After trying on our waders for fly fishing, Mr.R and I have come to the decision to try keto again until May 14 which is our fly fishing lesson. This challenge will mainly focus on trying to get started with keto and getting into the flow. Goals: - Stay under 50g carbs - Attempt 5 minutes on elliptical 2x/week - Paint 1 time / week - Meal plan 1 time/week And of course in addition to all that I will be riding 3 times a week. Fingers crossed we got Daisy’s cough under control this time.
  4. I made a plan for 2022 and I’m working at crossing everything off the list! I like lists. I’m hoping that as I complete things off my big list that I will gain happiness and peace of mind. Everything in this challenge works towards that. Main Quests > Lose 5lbs (264.8lbs) > Track calories daily (1800-1950cal) > On work days, take 2 breaks to get up and move for 2-5 minutes > Play time with Sizzle once per week Mini Quests > Finish my 3 commissions [Week 0-1: Golden Pony, Week 2-3: Monty, Week 4-5: Percy] > Fill cement hole in basement (1/5 house sell tasks) > Finish filling laundry shelf bins Last weigh-in: 269.8lbs Challenge Progress Lose 5lbs: ◻️◻️◻️◻️◻️ Commissions: 🐊◻️◻️ Cement hole: ◻️ Laundry shelf: ◻️ Weigh Ins
  5. There’s no better time to heal, rest and plan than winter and there’s definitely no better place to do that than Kaer Morhen with my fellow Witchers. I’ve done some reflection about how I want 2022 to look and feel. Hygge… I want so much hygge. I want to practice my homesteading skills, transform my environment into a place of ultimate comfort and happiness, keep growing my financial stability, create things that are just for me. In order to accomplish the year I want I will need to take a breath so I can get back on track. For this challenge I need to get back into the habit of tracking calories, replenish my stores (financials), troubleshoot what’s making my foot hurt and start rehabbing it. Witcher Contract: - Slay 5lb water hag ✅ - Slay 5 drowners Main Quests: - 1800-1950 calories daily - Fix foot (will elaborate later when I figure out what this means) Secondary Quests - Pay back debts…. Make RRSP contribution + pay off credit card [paid off this billing period, will strike this when second billing period is paid off] - Replenish stores… increase savings by 500 crowns - Relax… Finish 2 pony paintings - Organize stash… put newly acquired things in their new home [started] - Foraging… Plant garlic Tending Roach - Exercise and groom Sizzle minimum once a week - Rasp Daisy’s feet as needed (I really hope Roach isn’t doing anything dirty in this gif lol I’m on my phone and it just looks like she’s doing push ups) Its going to get tricky to lose 5lbs for this challenge but I can do it - I just need to stay focused. And if I manage to get my foot back to normal then I can start doing my walking and Zumba again. Weigh ins (I try to do it 2-3 times a week)
  6. The spirit of this challenge is making small changes towards what I think is my ideal life. My ideal life has creativity, lacks excess, keeps me active and intertwines with nature. Week 3: Refocused Challenge Goals Change weekday morning routine (which was to before work Starbucks) (+1 point per thing) Out of bed by 7am on work days Brush teeth + hair Get dressed Go for walk around block if I think of going to Starbucks instead Make breakfast (no white carbs) Start work at 8am > No more Starbucks* > 5 minutes of active time per day > Meal plan I am still planning on doing my painting challenges + hikes but I didn't add them because I had a gut feeling I should leave them out. Scrapped Challenge Painting challenges: Week 0: "Art Battle" style painting (no reference and you only get 20 minutes) Week 1: Still life with something metallic and something glass Week 2: Mundane scene (ie. dirty dishes, a pile of socks) Week 3: Painting plein-air (outside) Week 4: Funny face portrait Week 5: Food

  8. Know that feeling where you are standing at the start of your journey? Your goal seems hefty, maybe a little bit overwhelming... Yet you are still cautiously optimistic and maybe even excited to start. That's what January feels like to me. This will be my 50lb year. I am going to lose 50lbs by Dec 31, 2021. Can I do it? Yes. Will I do it? I'm definitely going to give it my all. Afterall if I don't even try then it for sure won't happen 🤭 Challenge Quest: Lose 5lbs - 1700 calories daily - 2L water daily - 2 extra movements in addition to 3 horseback rides per week Adulting Dailies - Floss + brush - Adult task - Mental recharge (Do something that makes me happy) Mini Quest - Reflect and come up with year goals Starting weight: 250.8lbs Challenge goal: 245.8lbs Year goal: 200lbs (Gifs to be added later)
  9. ^ basically how I feel right now lolll I am going to take this challenge day by day... So it seems fitting to have daily goals Dailies - 1700 calorie intake - 2L water - Floss and brush teeth - Do productive adult task A little about me.. I am Rookie and I live in the Rebels guild. I have 3 dogs and a horse (kinda). I ride my horse 3 times a week and it is my main form of exercise and therapy haha. I love painting and I want to eventually transition to supporting myself on painting alone. Oh and I got engaged this year. My main focuses during challenges are food or eating related because I tend to go crazy if left unchecked. I have an inner snack squirrel. I also am extremely lazy and hate spending my free time taking care of my house but I realized in the long run it makes me happy... so I have been trying to make my house more of a priority. And that is me in a nutshell I am a work in progress.

  12. I just started throwing pebbles in the ocean of life to see how far the ripples reach. I have an idea of where I'd like to be, but don't really have a clue or care how I get there. I am a blank slate. Deconstructed and abstract. My stats: 5'2" Female Medium build 155lbs No major known detrimental health problems/limitations No prescriptions Time wasting at work. Summer is so quiet. Quite nice. Let's me think and focus on me. The days are as slow as molasses but I don't care. Let's me practice living in the present and be alone with my thoughts except for the occasional beggar. DAY ONE of logging my pebble ripple journey thing at least here. I've been doing lots of logging elsewhere, but this will be way more personal. Way more public. Way more uncomfortable. I have been calorie counting for a couple of months now. Only finding it is more difficult and way less healthy and less effective than the low carb way of eating I've experimented with. I am never satiated and always grumpy and obsessing over the scale. I found if I eat more than 900 calories, I gain weight. Definitely going back to low carb ---- meats and veggie---- this coming week. Oooh Assasin's Creed theme music is playing on my Pandora. Will I play the game tonight? Maybe, maybe not. I have too much to do to get sucked into 18th century France again forever eating away at my life and the summer's waning days. Sorry, squirrel moment. Today, I had a sausage biscuit with cheese at McDonald's. Damn little things are too addicting to be real. It may not be my last but will certainly be for the next month at least if not more unless by some magical pill the very thought of them makes me sick. I had half a serving of Noosa mango yogurt for lunch. Yumm Just finished half a serving of Atkins Dark Chocolate Royale Shake. I have not eaten enough today obviously, and yes I'm feeling the effects. Emotionally down and weak and mushy brain. It is my work out day. I'll eat a nice piece of chicken breast and drink some hot green jasmine tea after my workout. That will help. My workout will consist of the following: Chuck Norris' Total Gym Machine Thingy 3 sets 12 repetitions seated bicep curls seated chest presses Body and Free Weights 3 sets and 12 repetitions squats with two 25lb dumbbells good mornings with one 25lb weight Boxing 4 -45 second rounds punching the punching bag and walk/run on the treadmill to the highest intensity possible Outside Walk around the neighborhood with the dog (1/2 a mile maybe??? not sure, never measured). My fiancé and I do this together and alternate our sets in our little makeshift gym at home listening to the loudest angriest music to keep motivated and going strong throughout the entire workout. Definitely going to have to add a little something to the routine next week, as I am no longer sore after the workout. Still feels good though. I'll let my fiancé do the planning. He is the coach after all with the exercise science degree. I don't have a clue what to do next. Suggestions welcome! Well, that be all for now. I'll see to it that I track my day again tomorrow. A practice - in self-discipline.
  13. This challenge, I'm really going to stay tuned in. This challenge, I'm going to foc- No really. It's more of the same, but a little different. I can't overdo it. It comes back to bite me, and I refuse to do that to myself (at least for the next few weeks...). It's summer, and gorgeous outside, and while I wold love to continue lifting, the draw of sun and fresh air is too strong. We've got a bit more ton of gardening to do (haha lols I just looked at the to do list... we've still got a lot of work ahead of us), and then that massive project is over. Gardening list is currently: Will update above list as things are completed. All items will be completed by the end of the challenge. +1 point per bullet. +5 points to the week that I finish the list. Basically if I do something that is good for me, I get a point. If I ride, that is +5 points, because that is what I am focusing on this challenge. I will get those squirrels! I mean... I will focus!
  14. Do you have horses? Like them? Enjoy watching from afar? I know you have to be out there..... I've been around horses since I was 10 (thanks to a brother who decided he wanted to be Amish, which, of course, means one has to have a horse to get around) and they used to be my all-encompassing passion. Even now other interests come and go, but I always return to the incomparable horse. Unfortunately the vast majority of my knowledge has been self-taught, due to not having many people who could show me what the heck I was supposed to do. Colletta was my Arabian/Morgan mare for 11 years, until she passed away almost 2 years ago. She taught me a lot about patience, and trust, and developing the intuition necessary to train and ride, and managing money (because horses are NOT cheap any way one slices it), and hard work....there are so many areas of life where I have been impacted that would not have been developed without the presence of horses in my life. Since she died I've worked as a wrangler on a dude ranch in Colorado, and currently I have friends who let me come and play with their horses whenever I want. Since I used to be intimidated by the thought of riding 'strange' horses I've come leaps and bounds confidence-wise in that area. I would love to learn how to ride English, and maybe even try some show jumping someday, along with reining, dressage...so many disciplines, so little time/opportunity. XD What are your stories? Are you a legit cowboy/cowgirl? Have you ever wanted to ride but never had the opportunity?
  15. The Zombies are after you, better start running or you are done for. I'm about to get real with you guys... I have been lazy, full of excuses and giving up easily. I have been eating when I am not hungry and going for those bad snacks lately. Water? What is that... Juice all the way. It has made me feel like shit and I am tired of it. It has been affecting me in my horseback riding and my life... it needs to stop. These are my zombies and I am going to outrun them for this challenge. MAIN GOAL FOR THIS CHALLENGE: Lose 10lbs by April 5th Sub quests: > Minimum 15 minutes Zombies, Run (or cardio supplement) 2x/week 2x / Week = 2 Points 1x / Week = 1 Point 0x / Week = 0 Point > Minimum 2 Strength workout - Bodyweight, Resistance Bands, Swiss Ball, Kettlebell 2x / Week = 2 Points 1x / Week = 1 Points 0x / Week = 0 Point > Track that Grub (Food Journaling) 6-7 Days = 2 Points 3-5 Days = 1 Point 0-2 Days = 0 Point 6 Points = A.. You outran the zombies... this time 3-5 Points = B.. The zombies are still on your tail, pick those knees up! 0-2 Points = F.. You got eaten by Zombies... Try again LIFE QUEST: Get my head in the game...If I don't it could cost me my life. Be decisive...Be motivated...Be Confident. This part of the challenge is all about mental health and perspective. For this, I will be reading books, listening to music, speeches and basically just pumping myself up for life. If you guys are interested, these are the books I am reading currently. So I guess I could give a little blurb about myself I adore horses and I quarterboard a beautiful Belgian cross mare (non-horse people read: big female horse). I had quite a tumble off her back in October and that resulted in a torn ligament in one of my fingers which is just getting sorted out now with physio two times a week and I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon April 20th. Anyways, a lot of my goals tend to resolve around my riding and getting lighter, stronger and more stamina for that. Horses are a big part of my life, but the biggest love [aside from my boyfriend ] is my Boxer dog Rook He is just so crazy and full of life, he is definitely the best! Aside from those, I like programming, playing video games, reading and doing art. I tend to randomly post art I have done in my thread lol so don't mind that. Starting weight: 248lbs Height: 5'10'' Wish me luck <3 grawwrrrrrrrr
  16. Ahoy ye mateys! Omg he has a little hat! The names Rookie and I am finding myself back at the Adventurers door step I hope you will have me back! Last challenge I joined the Scouts to help me focus on my upcoming 5k Color Run (July 26). During that challenge I focused on doing my C25K, eating clean without counting calories and doing exercises/stretches to help with my horseback riding. During that challenge another challenge popped up between my future SIL, Mum and my friend... If I lose 55lbs by August 2015.. I get a free trip to Positano, Italy! So my focus is back on losing those pounds and getting a killer bod. Main Quest: Get to (and maintain) 190lbs by August 2015.

Starting Stats: (I will update this closer to the challenge start date) Height: 5'10 Weight: 241.4 lbs Fat %: 41.1 Water %: 37.6 Muscle %: 34.1 Bone: 4.2lbs Motivation: To be more athletic for horseback riding I'm a bridesmaid at my brothers wedding August 2015 Positano Weightloss Challenge August 2015 (if I get down to 190lbs by then.. .FREE TRIP) Rookie my puppup He has too much energy.
