I'm thinking we should do it at 12am GMT (00:00 England, or 01:00 for those of you in the rest of Europe), that would make it 8am for Lupus :-P and PST 4pm, MST 5pm, CST 6pm or EST 7pm for those of us in the Americas.

Hi everyone!

I just managed to post my thread! The kids were rather distracting this weekend.

 

Lupus, your German is not bad for a Scott. Not bad at all!

 

Ther's no way I can stay up that late, sorry!

Anyone interested in starting a Skype IM conversation or something like that? So everyone could come and go whenever it fits into his/her schedule.

 

I'm really excited for this challenge!

Group update!

 

Hey guys! So, quick update for y'all;

 

  • We now have a Facebook group for more up-to-date info, so dunno what we'll use the thrtead for, weekly updates more likely. Use whichever you prefer, if you dont have facebook thats fine, you wont be missing out on much. You can find us here. 
  • We not have our on irc channel! When you get onto chat, you'll see theres usually quite a lot of people on. If you type /j #COTN into the chat, you'll join our channel, here any of us will be. That way you can see whos on. I'd like to ask that whenever you join irc you do this, so we can keep ourselves in one place.
  • For our GMT folk - dont worry about missing this hangout, we'll do a GMT-friendly one in week...3? Maybe?
  • Im going to make a google doc for all our workouts. There you can add your workouts in and keep track of them, and so can we. Its a really good way of seeing who's doing what. The link will be here when ive done it.

So yes, also where I am is the first day of the Challenge!  Woo!

I have other goals that I'm going to try to do this challenge also but going to spend most of my time with the workout portion. Once I create/recreate my battle log, that's going to be where I do most of my journaling. I'm going to keep my challenge thread for updates and pleas for help with the motivation. My battle log link will end up in my signature also. :-)

Oooo first day of the challenge, sat eating my porridge (made with water & with added wheat bran, plus peaches and honey = yummy!!) waiting for the protein & 5-HT i ordered to arrive (lets hope this term I don't start each week in floods of anxiety induced tears *sigh*)

 

I'd love to join in the G+ hangout, but unfortunately I can't because on Sunday morning I'm going to view a house - very exciting. However, I am well for skype chats or whatever :)

 

Hoping the DPD man comes soon so I can get to the gym, until them I'm jogging up and down the stairs.

Here's an inspirational one for you all today (two songs in one day? What's this thread coming to...)

 

 

 

(I'm really just sharing this one because I just found out it exists - Howard Jones is the former singer of Killswitch Engage and has a killer voice..., plus it's thematically appropriate for our challenge.)

Happy Day One!

 

I'll be adding my official updates as addenda to my original post (since I forgot to reserve the first reply slot).  I'll try and spend some time at the hangouts and on IRC.  I tend to be a lurker, so don't be surprised if I'm not overly chatty.

 

@Genithos:  spent a few days in Oslo in November, definitely want to go back and spend some quality time travelling through all of Scandinavia.  Probably in the summertime, though...November was already a tad too cold for an extended stay.  ;-)

Today was a shaky start, but I'm moving forward.

 

More here.

That was a pretty good start Trevor. And those ratios are fine for LCHF style of eating. There's a whole bunch of macro ratios working for paleo. Keep up the good work!

Thanks!

 

It's hard to see those ratios and not panic - old thinking dies hard.  That being said, my protein intake was only 102g for the day, whereas my target should be around 220-240g.  Upping my intake with some lean protein sources will help adjust the ratios accordingly.

I had the same problem in the beginning. Sometimes it's harder to adjust your head than your body.

Lean protein sources that I can think of right now are chicken, tuna packed in water, fish other than fatty fish, egg whites.
