  1. Good work and I would probably do the same (focus on the diet first then bring the exercise back) if it were me. For the pushups, I would much rather repeat a week than skip the 5th set. That 5th set is the most important one by far. That's where the strength gains are supposed to happen - the first set gets you tired, the second set is close to max reps, then you do two smaller sets to tire you out again and then that last set is supposed to be really hard. Increase your rest between sets, take two days off between push up days, repeat an earlier week... all of those will serve you better than skipping the last set imo. But remember... I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. Consult your doctor before beginning this or any diet or exercise program.
  2. And with that I'm skipping the run. 16 calories under goal, no alcohol, and no need to get my heart rate up any more before bed. 37 days down, 28 to go.
  3. Thanks for our the reminder - I was about to get on the treadmill quickly and remembered today was my pushup day. I decided to stick with the hard column on day 3 to compare with last time, and if i struggled, I could redo it or drop down a level next time. 36 definitely challenging but doable. I'm not even timing my rest here. 40 this was tough. Around 36 I slowed way down but didn't stop. Lots of rest again. 30 done no problem. Back is getting a little soggy though. 24 finished quickly because in my head I needed to hurry up and finish before I get tired. Also, am dumb. Would like to take 45 minutes rest here, but will probably stick to 4 or 5. 40 holy #### I did it. I took a lot of rest, and the last two my back started to dip, but the first 38 were good looking pushups and the last two weren't that bad. This is my third time trying this set and the first two I didn't finish, so I'm pretty fn excited right now. Will be interesting to see if my results continue into the remaining 5 days, which are all those 8 set, finish with 50 type days.
  4. So frustrating to see him stopped at the 1 yet again. This kid is so good but he might be on the wrong team for fantasy.
  5. What does this even mean? Usage based? Usage is a good thing, isn't it? So why is he a RB2 for week 4? Is it his weekly performance? You might be able to stretch and find 12 backs you would start ahead of him against a neutral matchup, but in three games he's left one early with injury and played as an rb1 in both of the others. Is it the titans match up in week 4? They've played 3 games, and allowed Melvin Gordon, James Robinson and Dalvin Cook to get 86 and a td, 120 and a td, and 199 and a td. Conner's last two games he has 121 and a td, and 1409 and a td. It seems like an easy projection - he'll probably have over 100 yards and a touchdown again. I can understand calling him an rb2 for rest of season if you're not comfortable starting him, and i can understand trying to sell him after two good games if you're scared of injuries, but calling him a "usage-based rb2" for next week is just bad, superficial analysis.
  6. Ate fairly well. Had a good run and did a ton of walking. Stayed under calories. Still no alcohol. 36 down, 29 to go.
  7. Just finished my 5k, and even though I have been taking it easy on my knee recently, i ran my best time in months, in no small part because I was running for a cause that's important to me. Thank you to everyone who has signed up already.. and for those of you who are still thinking about it, there's still time - you have until Wednesday night to sign up even if you don't run it by the end of September.

  11. Just wrapping up on the treadmill, about two hundred caloriea under goal. But looking at the date today it dawned on me I must have skipped a day counting earlier, and that is great news because my last day is in exactly one month. 35 days down, 30 to go.
