Hi, I'm Viking. Not terribly new around here, but as a reminder, my specs ...

Weight: 247 lbs.

Body fat %: Unknown

Recent Accomplishments:

Food/Fitness goals:

Goals for the past two days... Yesterday I ate 3 oranges and wrote up to 9 pages of paper, so check for #1 and #4.

Today, finished my 18 page paper and turned it in. Check on #4! :D Started my Viking final paper. 50% complete on that goal. Cooked dinner with husband, so check for #2 - made homemade spaghetti loaded with peppers, mushrooms, and onions, extra lean beef, and whole wheat noodles. Very filling and delicious. No cheese involved Proud of myself for that. Have leftovers for the next few days.

Today's workout - rearranging furniture in the living room. Spent most of the day working on the paper. My back is screaming due to inactivity, I think. I also did not make my fruit goal. I am so full I doubt I am going to. Rather than force myself to eat, I am going to count the bell pepper, mushrooms, and onion in my sauce as my "3 veggies." (There was more veggies than sauce or meat in the pot. Husband is successful at spoiling me.)

Today's failures: 2 Milano cookies and 5 Twizzlers. Minimal damage but I really shouldn't be eating this garbage at all. However, I am weaning myself slowly to avoid a binge.

See ya'll tomorrow!

Progress for the last two days...

5/3/12 - only ate 1 piece of fruit. I was too full by the end of the night to eat 3. This means I need to eat fruit earlier in the day, I guess.

5/4/12 -

#1 - intending on attacking fruit shortly.

#2 - Making a healthy veggie pizza with homemade leftover spaghetti sauce and dough. Check!

#3 - going to get the form from the gym tonight.

#4 - CHECK! All papers completed and turned in. Very happy about this one. (Why, oh why, did I choose a history major? I hate writing papers. :D)

Doing OK but not great on food.

However, I did sign up to become a hiking guide on Saturdays at the local nature preserve, both to get outside more and work out some of my Ranger Rick urges. I need to invest in a dorky vest with many pockets, but otherwise I'm feeling pretty good about my choice. :)
