This article is AMAZING!!

 
For those who do not know me...I just (Jan. 2nd) had my two year "nerd-versary", I have always been an adventurer...Not sure what this "Ranger" guild is about but we'll give it a shot because Adventurers no longer 'fit' ;) (if y'all will accept me that is...)

 

Some Things I've Learned 
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 :)

Weights, because....well because I want to be a BadAss!
 
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.
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...

 

tl/dr; 
Immediate Goal
To lose 40 lbs and finish Dietary Manager Course
Goal 1
After Work

- Week 1 & 2- GGS Workout M&F - HIIT Tuesday - MIC Thursday

- Week 3 - GGS Workout M&F - HIIT M&F - MIC T&T

- Week 4 - GGS Workout M&F - HIIT MWF - MIC T&T

STR – 2
CON – 2

Goal 2
All Day - Moving 3 Miles a day/5 days a week
At Work - Yoga 2 days a week (T&T)
STA – 2
DEX – 2

Goal 3
After Workout - Homework! Do 1 Lesson a week
WIS – 2
CHA - 2

 

eta - update to workout plans to match GGS program

I haven't met you yet RES but I'd love to follow along. I'm a fellow autoimmune soldier (Graves) and look forward to seeing you slay this challenge. I'm also walking this challenge and trying to include some yoga.

Nice to meet you! All are welcome to follow along...autoimmune does make it tough, doesn't it?

 


Of course you're welcome to stick around, RES. By the way, Poison Ivy's comic sounds awesome and having her together with Harley Quinn somehow makes total sense.

Thank you my friend...had a feeling you would agree  ;)

 


Hi RES! I'll be following along too. 

YAY! Hi!!

 


Reeeeddd!! There you aree!! 

YES, and there YOU are!! Living vicariously through you (and my wife) since I can't derby anymore 

 


Hi RES!

 

I'll keep following you whichever guild you try to hide in.  B)

GOOD!! and not really hiding, just trying to find a place where I fit in that I can call home   :redface:

 


Yeahhh!!

Res lives

I'm not that easy to get rid of ;)

 

Okay, now that the site has let me respond to everyone...update time!

 

First week went fairly well, busy work-wise...I've finally broke down at work in my EVS department and promoted a supervisor, I need someone who can give direction to the staff, recognize what needs to be done, and can be my eyes in the hospital where I can't be...finally found someone who meets all of those criteria! Planning a Mardi Gras party at work...and am so behind with cost centers and budgeting I may never catch up (this is why I bring work home...ugh)

 

Challenge goals are holding steady...need one more GGS workout (Dr's appointment today prevented it) and one more day to get 3 miles in this week...and finish the lesson I'm working on for school (I realized I listed actual days on my goals, those are more guidelines...as long as I get it done is what really matters!)

Need to 'Ranger Up' and and get clothes gone through for the mini 

Have an order for 400 triple dipped tapers I have to get done by Sunday

Possibly going to a play party tomorrow night

 

Hopefully the site corporates enough where I can catch up here this weekend as well... 

 

Is anyone else having issues with getting 'too many quotes' or 'too many emoticons' when trying to post?
