In continuing with my quarter long challenges (because I'm kinda lazy like that) our goals are still:

 

Gym 3x/week

Food 5x/week, would be 7 but let's be realistic

Nerd Fitness 3x/week posting something/somewhere doesn't have to be my own thread, hopefully this will become a daily habit again.

Tracking spreadsheet is in the signature

 

Gym has been a struggle, I am committing to doing this in the evening if my other half doesn't get up with me in the morning to go. 

Food...probably could be better but not horrible, my job is quite social and since being back in FL I've reconnected with a lot of friends and activities I enjoy. 

Been making it a habit to check on here more, having something to say doesn't always come easy to me though.

 

Not sure what's going on with me lately, I haven't been doing that bad with my eating and have been better about not overdoing it, but I really need/want to lose weight and it's been just the opposite. I have fallen off a lot worse than I have been here lately so not sure what's up. Nothing I've been doing justifies a 15 lb gain in two months! This needs to get under control and quick!

I see your 15 and raise you another 7.  Maybe you gained as sympathetic pounds with me and my recovery?  I am putting the pedal to the metal and driving the weightloss home this challenge.  I don't eat "bad" but I think quantity and too many carbs for a girl my age.  

I gained it while eating mostly Keto...so I can't even say that :lol: I was so excited cause I lost at first then it was no matter what I did I kept gaining...nothing seems to be working, it's frustrating!

I am forcing myself to log everything on MFP.  I hate doing that but it does make me look at portion sizes so here I go.......

2 lbs a week will be coming off even if I have to cut off a limb.

I'm using a meal delivery service so my portion sizes are on point...nothing so drastic twin, I need you in one piece!

Following along, RES. :D 

 

SIGH! If I LOOK at certain foods, it's an automatic 10 pound weight gain and if I SMELL the food, it's 20 pounds right there! ROFL! :D  That's how hard it is for me to lose weight at times. GEEZ! :D 

Smelling food is my nemesis...well, that and the fact that I LOVE food!!

So I did a thing...after being here almost 4 years I joined the Academy :o  Something I've thought about doing for a while and I think it will help me be more realistic about what I'm doing wrong and areas to change. I'll be adding the missions from there as additional challenge goals here.

My lovely wife was sick last week...and even though I had no desire for her to do so she shared her germs with me. I don't remember the last time I even had the sniffles and I worked in a hospital for two years! :blue: Which was fine because I'm a horrible sick person.

Challenge goals on zero week were two out of three (again)...must.find.gym.time! :lol:

Sra. Tanque is in the academy, you can probably find her on the FB group.

I did see her name...that group seems to be filled with very chatty women i don't know :o 

 

So one of the missions for the first week of the academy is to track your food...so I dusted off MFP...I think I may have found part of the problem!

Holy shit I didn't realize how many calories some of the stuff I've been eating has...kind of depressing but at least lets me know where to make adjustments. Biggest adjustment is going to be not letting my wife get breakfast from Sonic! I may try just eating twice a day and see how that works...lunch seems to be getting later and later for me because I'm trying to wait till I'm hungry, then I'm not really hungry at dinner but have to cook for her. Maybe just eat breakfast later

Meeting today for my not for profit that I really wish had been last weekend! I just want to sit home today...Didn't really want to start this off by feeling like warmed over poo, but it is what it is...food prep and shower first though...then we'll see about gym or a walk

Not sure what's going on with you lately indeed, but judging by the images on Facebook you must be doing something right because you look a lot brighter and happier. Whatever's behind that, keep at it.

Everything else can suck it! :lol:

Also one of me with the Captain, this guy was nuts!

Today was the EverGreen 5k, nice, brisk walk through the cemetery on a chilly October morning was actually a lot of fun! :D 

 

And I used 20 SEC today and signed up for this https://www.ilovekickboxing.com/

 

Otherwise everything has been going okay except for workouts (hope to change that) food wasn't perfect this week due to early bday celebrations but not going to beat myself up over it!

Good for you for getting outside and doing fun things. The pictures are not showing up for me.

I tried to upload them but it kept telling me I didn't have enough space..and it won't let me remove any :(

Not sure if anyone see them with the links, I added them to a shared folder in google photos until I can find another solution.

Hosting them to imgur and then copy pasting them works for me.

I second that. Ever since the forum change and Photobucket blocking free third party hosting, imgur is my go-to choice.
