My Fourth Challenge:

 

1) Continue Tracking for a whole year on MFP, making sure to get proper nutrition, eating enough and figuring out what is best for me as I may be more insulin/carb sensitive than previously thought. Also, continue tracking exercise with Fitbit.

 

2) Lose that last 16 pounds by this summer, with 6 pounds for this challenge.

 

3) Continue keeping up with friends

 

4) Pass Garde Manger (Cold Foods) and graduate to Bakeshop

 

5) Put together new cosplay outfit.

 

6) Take care of ears, which tend to get clogged from time to time, eyes, which need to be examined, and right knee, which is still healing but is better than before.

 

Progress so far:

 

1) Ongoing, still working on feelings of guilt for not being as athletic as some people on here.

 

2) Ongoing

 

3) Ongoing

 

4) Slightly behind.

 

5) I've got an absolutely perfect athletic jacket for my first female cosplay that isn't a female version of a male character, Kumiko "Yankumi" Yamaguchi, Acting Kumicho and High School Teacher from The Gokusen! I just need to get the pants, lose a bit of weight and fix up my hair. :D

Hello, there, our.lady.of.ashes! :D Thanks for the encouragement!

 

Here's a report of how things stand thus far:

 

1) Tried going low-carb for a day and felt really weak. Still, it got rid of those nasty, painful hunger pangs from when I went too high and I'm going back to a more moderate percentage. I'm not failing practice tests at school again.

Also, I'm cutting back on exercise because I'd like some leisure time. I miss playing video games and reading books and not feeling like I have to do some form of intense activity or my whole day is wasted because I was lazy.

 

I'm working on the rest, still.

Okay, perhaps I was going about the low-carb thing the wrong way. Maybe if I did it slowly. I could replace my breaded chicken patties every now and then with boiled chicken tenders.... I'm eating 30-50% carbs and most of them are veggies, fruits and whole wheat 40 calorie Nature's Own bread or 90 calorie whole wheat wraps... I just...love sandwiches...

Okay, I'm dropping goal #2. Maintaining in March to reset my metabolism. If I lose, I lose. If I maintain, at least I don't go up and I get healthy.

 

I'm also relaxing on exercise. The stress on my body and mind has shown itself.

 

Considering distracting myself from lingering obsessive thoughts with forms of entertainment, such as the works of Ian Flemming. Haven't ever read anything of his, but I've heard he's good.

 

In other news, Fitbit says I've walked 500 miles. Maybe I'll walk 500 more just to walk 1,000 by this summer to fall down at my door. (Da da da da!)

Picking up goal #2 again with renewed purpose born of fear. Wondering if I might have a problem.

 

I'm focusing on my career right now, our.lady.of.ashes. :) Besides, I have no interest in anything beyond the platonic or the familial, the type of relationships I prefer and feel most comfortable with.

Thanks, I think I'm doing alright. :)

 

I'm having trouble with the resting part, though. Decided not to go low-carb and just eat what I need in small portions throughout the day to keep me feeling satisfied.

Went in one week (this last week) from 145 to 147 and then down to 142. Right on schedule for my goal. :)
