    Maigs Chases the Wagon

    Free for the taking office food is the worst! The only thing saving me from it currently is we have a bunch of college interns at work and I avoid the area until they've eaten it all

    Red polo is Friday game days shirt (yes, we have a different color for each day of the week on game days) Of course, red being my favorite color is part of how Red Eagle Spirit came to be (my ex, Blue Wolf Spirit came up with it )

    The Comeback Tour - Redux [Endor}

    Don't do that. It's awful. When I asked about the books I was refering to the GOT ones, but anyway I enjoyed the answer about the kindles Nicely surprised that you're already making some money from your new hobby.

    The Comeback Tour - Redux [Endor}

    lol, sucker for punishment! I find the prospect of making money from a static site exciting so it doesn't feel like work. I'm doing 1 post a week at the moment. It's not really enough but I'm in no rush. I'm enjoying learning the electronics side of it. Finding the kindles to repair is the hardest part, so far it's been through the classified ads but I'd like to buy a big batch of broken ones at auction or something. The best one yet was one I bought for $5, did a software fix on it so no parts costs and sold for $85. Pretty happy with that one! Mostly I'm buying them for around $20 and selling for around $50. I've got some badly broken ones that I've made 3 into 1 and am selling at the moment, hoping for a good profit on that. It's going pretty well, thanks for asking I just finished week 3 today so I have 6 weeks to go. I've signed up for this 5km fun run on June 2 which is exactly at the end of the C25K. I had to pay $49 entry but it goes to a charity that research's cures for children's cancer. I will also try to raise $250 from work colleagues and friends so I have some accountability. I hate running.......but I'm starting to like it a bit! The program seems to be well structured and I've done enough training over the years to know that all I have to do is follow a well designed program and my body will react accordingly. Next I need to get the nutrition sorted out but I'm not putting too much pressure on myself at the moment, I have a lot going on so I need to be kind to myself! I'm still drinking too much but I'm determined to run even if I have a hangover and so far I'm good for my word!

    Random Thoughts of Randomness

    I think the killer is that our washing machine is so out of the way (other end of the house from the kitchen) so it’s only when we go to bed and go to put dirty clothes in the laundry basket that I even see it. Our next house the washing machine is going in the kitchen for sure.
  9. What’s new pussycat? Well, nothing really. I’m basically carrying on with my goals from the previous challenge but I’m adding in intermittent fasting. Not much of an intro, but it’s all I got right now coz I’m in a rush. 1. Get organised - start following the damn schedule you muppet!!! 2. Get moving - going to keep a step target and add in some lifting goals (yaaaaaay!) 3. Get to bed - same as last time, bonus points on offer again 4. Get fast - two full 24hr fasts each week to help me reach my weight loss goals.
  10. Blocky

    Blocky does moderately difficult things...

    Week 1 - Monday Training: Today has been... annoying. Mrs Blocky and I had a long drive yesterday to do some stuff (6hrs in total) and because of stupid car chairs my adductors (both) are super tight and achy today. On top of that I put a knife through the middle finger of my left hand while making salad... AND 5 minutes later gave myself a decent burn to the middle finger on my right hand while getting some chicken out of the oven. Good thing it's not deadlift day... no... wait... it is. Damn. Squats: 5 x 5 at 5kg... tight adductors made hitting depth problematic, but I did what I could. Block Pulls: 3's up to 150kg (with straps obv - still hurt the fingers though). Pause Bench: technique work up to 1 at 105kg Leg Press, Back extensions, copenhagen leg exercises. Didn't break the adductors, but nothing felt great today. I think I'm going to hand out at 75kg for my squatting until it feels solid. Brainy Stuff: 1 lecture to catch up on, but otherwise prepared for the week.

    Turning back the clock

    Last progress pics were from May 2017 and I was the slimmest and lightest I’d ever been in my adult life! Unfortunately I was also still in a lot of pain and had huge problems with my mobility. Since then I’ve had a diagnosis and treatment that has allowed me to come completely off my painkillers and start to live a normal life again. The down side is that coming off Tramadol was a freaking nightmare and made me very sick for quite a while, which lead to me eating a LOT of crap to make myself feel better and, yup you guessed it, put on a ton of weight. So, starting afresh! This is where I am now and I have some new goals, woohoo! Weight - 70.6kg BF - 27.4% This comes with a disclaimer that A - my weight was taken after a 24hr fast so might be artificially low, and B - that BF% is from a set of analyser scales (notoriously inaccurate but I can at least track the trend). This shows where I am now compared to my last progress pic. It doesn’t look like much but I think I’m just holding my belly in a LOT more in the new pic. I’m about 6kg heavier than in the first pic (and most of that seems to be around my midriff). I have been able to start lifting again and I don’t seem to have lost massive amounts of strength, at least, not as much as I was expecting to have lost. The goal now is to lose the extra poundage, gain strength and mobility, and quite simply Get A Life. I will still take part in the challenges but I’m going to track the changes to my body (composition and ability) in here.

    Turning back the clock

    Ok, so I’ve not posted on here for about 2 years, but I feel like I could do with having somewhere to keep track of progress over a longer period than the 4WCs so I’m picking it up and dusting it off. Progress pics will be added shortly.

    Work hard, play hard

    Work hard: Self employment: Havent't done anything the last days. Fitness: Still no sport. Education: I started and finished the Crossfit Judge course yesterday. Was really fun. Play hard: Garden/Field: We went to get the seeds from the farmer on Saturday. Really nice guy. And we talked about the piece of land. Today is still a public holiday (Easter Monday) so I think we will start planting the seeds tomorrow. Mini habits: I thought about 2 habits and may add a drinking habit: Meditate for one minute, Do 10 jumping jacks Food: I looooove bread. But I think, all the "bad" carbs (like flour etc) are not that good for me. Have to check that.

    TODO 2019 PvP [Jan 1 - Dec 29]

    Oh, for that I have something in mind. My personal pvp for this week: Sell something you don't use anymore (again )
  19. Week One Overview Overall, last week went great. I got all my workouts done and I did do something other than just elliptical even if it was just some booty training. It all counts. Calories-wise things have been really good again. I was under 1800 calories every day but two (this is what I want for every week - undereating 5 days a week and exceeding it 2 days to alternate intake) and I averaged out at 1812 calories per day which is pretty much bang on. My weight has been down for most of the week although I got an upswing at the end bringing me to pretty much where I was at the beginning of the week but this always happens to me. I will start seeing downward movement soon enough. No increase in hotness but I can live with this too.
  20. Sunday Update We got up quite late and exchanged Easter eggs. I got a lot more than TH because I do easter eggs with the girls at work too so we decided to just share them all between us because like I said, we're cute af. We did some remedial chores (laundry, beewasp checks - they haven't got into the house for a while now, I think we're all good but I don't want to speak too soon) then we played video games all afternoon. I did a workout but I didn't exactly bring the power again, mostly because I had let TH seduce me again and that always saps my energy but I did my best. I did some basic booty moves beforehand which again, wasn't in the spirit of the "do something more than just elliptical" but technically it's a pass and like I said, I was working against the circumstances. I did my weekly hotness check and we both agreed there is no difference which is fine, we would't expect there to be in just a week. TH did tell me he has never found me so attractive and we did have a conversation about why that must be, since I reckon I looked better this time last year. He said it was a confidence thing. Then he started singing Fit But You Know It at me. We went to my mom's for dinner and we sat in their garden chatting, then when we came home we read in the garden with cups of herbal tea before watching Beastmaster. Then we came to bed but neither of us could sleep for a while because it was too hot. I'm tired again today.

    Shello Attempts a Comeback

    I think if you didn't realise it was a coverup then nobody else will either. I was in exactly the same situation with a work dress I had a year or two ago and nobody ever noticed.

    Weight: 226.3 lbs (4lbs Lost) Sleep: 7 hrs Water: 4/8 Gallon Protein: 80 grams Meals: 8:30am - Protein bar, vitamins, coffee 11:00am - Eggs, bread, cheese, fruit, tea 2:00pm - SF Monster 4:45pm - Chicken sandwich & salad 9:30pm - Chicken Caesar Salad Fitness: Rest Day Notes: Yesterday and today were an absolute blur. Did recovery service work most of the day yesterday, did an Easter lunch with the family, movie with my son, then more recovery service work. The volunteering definitely helps me keep on an even keel, but need to work on balancing that with enough sleep and food. Kind of burning the candle at both ends right now. Today started bright and early with a scramble to Easter church service, scrambling back to get ready for a big family lunch and egg hunt and juggling kids and family members for the next couple of hours. After everyone left did a quick pack for this weeks trip then it was off to the airport again for a day in Phoenix then headed to LA tomorrow. Air travel was delayed again, really just trying to roll with things. Wanted to go for a run this evening, but due to flight and baggage delays that was out. Just going to settle for a healthy-ish dinner and early bed time. Hopefully a bit of personal inventory and a good nights sleep will change my current grumbly state.

    Elennare's Adventures in Eating

    End of zero week. I tried to jump back on the push up challenge wagon and missed, so I have a bit more catching up to do than hoped for. Gotta chase down the wagon before I can jump back on again. Eating the last few days has been either great or terrible. I haven't been able to do "ok." Not stellar, but at least there's been some good meals to balance out the bad. I had way too much chocolate today, but it's Easter, so I feel like you're doing it wrong if you don't. We had a lovely day today, though. Started with an Easter egg hunt for the boys. They had an egg with one candy in it in their baskets and a note that they had to hunt for the rest. The original plan was to put the candy in the eggs in their baskets but they both were super excited about the idea of an egg hunt so that's what we did. Then we played Star Munchkin, and then off to church. After church we went out to lunch, came home and changed out of our fancy clothes, and then Little Bug asked if he could practice sword fighting. That happened for a little bit, then one of the neighbor kids came over and Husband and I ended up showing off a little. Then the boys played outside. And then we went tide pooling and saw lots of cool stuff. Many hermit crabs, including one that Husband picked up and let the boys hold. Well, offered anyway. Little One decided he didn't want to hold the crab. Also saw some pelicans. Ended the outing at Cold Stone. In not great news, Husband's car is in the shop and there's a good chance we'll end up facing a decision on whether it's worth repairing or not. But I'm glad it's getting looked at and they're not taking it on the road trip to Northern California tomorrow. But they are renting a car, which means getting up early to get it before I go to work, so I think I'm going to go to bed so I can start week one not horribly sleep deprived. At least I have coffee again!
  25. So, I'm still in the unconditional permission to eat phase, and I'm trying to eat without screens. It's hard. I like combining tv and eating. Or reading and eating. So relaxing. But it's also quite relaxing eating whatever I want without worrying about health or weight. So far I've not gotten fat, sick, or otherwise broken by eating whatever I like. I guess I was sort of worried I would immediately become exhausted and start gaining weight and generally turn back into my weak, sick, sad, pre-lifting self again, but that hasn't been the case so far. Fingers crossed the extra calories will go to my lifts and make me stronger. This pie is for you, overhead press. (Yes. I made a blackberry and blueberry pie. I like baking, but haven't been doing it because the sugar and calories seemed inexcusable.)
