So I was going to do another acronym challenge and call it I.V.Y. just so I could use this picture
 
gallery_25713_879_25865.jpg
Because holy crap does it describe me! LOL
 
But then the 'powers that be' decided to go revamp the site and piss me off
 
With our Fearless Leader posting his views on what our 'description' should be, I decided to change the topic of my challenge, even though what I'm working on stays the same ;)
 
For those who do not know me...I just (Jan. 2nd) had my two year "nerd-versary", I have always been an adventurer...I do not particularly give a rats ass what some book decided to change the description to!
I have tried several things in those two years...some have worked, some, not so much!
 
What has worked:
Eating Paleo, not so much because of weight loss, but because I have RA and not eating the SAD foods has reduced my inflammation to more manageable levels.
Walking, because I have realized I really enjoy it, and doing 5K's because they're fun!
Yoga, because stress and my neck injury are a real thing :)
Kettlebells, because they're versatile enough to keep me motivated and continuing to use them.
 
What has not worked:
Derby, not because it doesn't work, but because I have RA and my recovery time is crazy...I have to be able to move the next day.
HIIT, see derby.
Anything that requires me to go to a gym, or devote crazy amounts of time to, because my schedule is constantly changing from one day to another...
 
So once again, I'm trying something new for this challenge...a friend talked me into DietBet, I figured why not (if you want more info just ask) nothing like money to motivate you to lose weight!
Our "Wellness@Work" program is doing a walking challenge, kinda like the walking to Mordor one here but we're walking from our facility to the beach (virtually of course)
While I'm not doing derby anymore, I do have access to a program (that I paid for so I gotta use it! LOL) called CoreBuilder that looks intriguing, it's a month long so that works perfectly with the new format...
 
I'm also looking at scheduling when I'm doing my workouts, because I work better with structure, as well as why I'm doing what I'm doing...'to lose weight' isn't cutting it apparently...I spelled all this out in my spreadsheet
 
tl/dr; 

Immediate Goal
To lose 40 lbs and finish Dietary Manager Course
Goal 1
After Work
Because I’m tired of making excuses and feeling bad
-          CoreBuilder 3-4 days a week
-          Kettlebell 2-3 days a week
STR – 2
CON – 2
Goal 2
Before Work
Yoga At Work
Because I love how I feel and endorphins are awesome!
-          Moving 3 miles a day
-          Yoga 2 days a week
STA – 2
DEX – 2
Goal 3
After Workout
Because I will run out of time!
-          Homework!
WIS – 2
CHA - 2

Hey RES! Following, of course. ;)

Sorry to hear you're leaving derby, but the injury issues are real, for sure. I'm volunteering for derby locally this month - as a non-skating official. I love the local team and I've got a couple of friends there, and I'd wanted to get involved, but I've also decided that with my own personal issues with my abs, skating with derby will never be in the cards for me. 

What are you using for yoga? I've been wanting to give it a shot, but haven't gotten started yet.

My wife is staying with it and I will continue to 'hang out' with them...I've done NSO before and it's a lot of fun :)

 

I use NF Yoga, I got the program when it first came out and I love it! It's very beginner friendly and gives a lot of modifications for whatever issues you may have with some of the poses.

 

 

Haha!

 

There you are! I'll be watching. Cheers!

I wasn't hiding my dear ;) glad to see you finally made it!

I think we're all confused and scattered around the forum. The change for the sake of change was . . . change-y

Was stupid IMHO

 

But I have to agree with the Countess on this one ;)

Sounds like you are overloaded babe! Make sure you get some "me" time in.

Too much of that and I get to thinking. ..which is not a good thing :(

There's other 'me time' for stress relief... you probably shouldn't be thinking then if you're doing it right.
