Yeah 5 should do it

I want to lose 20 or 25. Underneath that is an Olympian.  An Adonis.  But between here and there are a whole lot of drinks and delicious snacks. Damnit.

considering a 5k as a new goal.  :oldunsure:  but done properly.

i could, and have, gone out and just done them before.  i've done 3, 10k marine corp mud runs, in the last few years.  great pain follows.  

i'd like to see, ever so carefully, if i can gradually increase my distance. and run a 5k.  sub 27 would be my end goal.  :oldunsure:

JK Krista can’t leave. She’s our inspiration. She’s our candle in the darkness.  She’s proof that our dreams possible.  
 

Maybe we need some kind of Krista themed approach here.  Hell maybe I’ll try WW. :unsure:

This morning felt a little sore in the shoulders from all the rowing. Decided to take a break and got out for a 40 min bike ride. Nothing Olympic like, but burned almost 500 calories, got some fresh air, and a nice change of pace.

We really should expel Krista from this thread. Anyone who is 10lbs BELOW goal weight doesn’t really belong in here. 

I'm only 9.8!  I get to stay!

OK, Mondays are when I "officially" weigh myself, and this morning I was 10.6 lbs below goal weight.  :kicksrock:

Also :excited: 

Don't worry, not planning to lose more.  I'm celebrating by eating all the pizza today and drinking most of the wine.

82 minutes of yoga and self-propelled bipedal movement today.  1746 through 2/3 of the month.  Wow, it seems like just five days ago we were at 1/2 the way through the month.

60 minutes on the walk this morning with Mrs who has now totaled a whopping 1,500 minutes

2180 and 1,500 

I have only had a couple days where I didn't do at least double this in minutes but tonight we had to visit a friend who celebrated his 55th BDay in a rehab center after suffering a blood clot in his brain. We are not allowed inside to visit so we formed one of those parades with our cars you may have seen in the news recently. When we pulled up he was sitting in a wheelchair inside, this was a man who a couple weeks ago was perfectly healthy, has a wonderful wife and two teenage daughters, none of them allowed inside the rehab center. It was very humbling and made me grateful for the good fortunes I've had and also the reminder of just how fast your life can be altered. I know many of you have similar stories, many are first hand.  

So tomorrow I will be riding for Robin since he can't right now.

Love the bfred report!  :lmao:

I just was not feeling it today.  At.  All.  No long workout; instead just did about an hour walk along with my yoga this morning, for 84 minutes total. 

So far for April:  1664 minutes

Completed Day 29/100 of my current Tecumseh challenge.

Completed Day 15 of the 30-day yoga program.  @E-Z Glider, do you have any recommendations for yoga after I finish the 30 days of HOME?

I'm currently 9.8 pounds below my initial goal weight.

She has other 30-day challenges, so you can do one of those. She also has different “playlists” you can do. I just went through and picked out a bunch that matched what I liked and made my own playlist.

Interested to hear what you think of the day 30 class. :)

I just completed a one week challenge to eat all the chips and drink all the booze i could.  It was a fun binge but not necessary.  And holy crap did i put on water weight from all the salt and alcohol.  

Focusing on diet this week. I'll still run but i'm still sore from running outside so I'll do that Ashley Sergent recovery yoga, it seems to help me. Hopefully get my weight back to where it was on Easter by end of week. Already dropped half of the water weight just by eating right yesterday/ Sunday.

It's going to be a fight to the finish!  

it's as if she heard you.  she's already knocked out 109 this morning.  

as @bostonfred stated, running in the real world hurts.  my legs and feet are pretty sore from all the running that i've been doing.  and i need a new pair of shoes, badly. 

 i was considering taking the day off. :lmao:  her knocking out 109 will possibly motivate me, we'll see.

It's going to be very close on the 1k minutes goal, when I do some projecting out. On day 4 of what I can only describe as crippling low-back/### pain. Like I can't sit in a chair or on a couch for more than 1-2 minutes without fairly searing pain, though it was better yesterday it's back to worse today.

 

Standing, and most workout movements however, are pretty fine! So I've got long walks, a lower body workout yesterday (maybe a mistake?), and think I'll be able to get pretty damn close to the 1k even if I end up below. I need 40 mins a day because of a few 20-mins of intense stretching only days this past week that knocked me off pace. On the bright side, standing for 12+ hour workdays is way better than sitting anyway, even if it isn't minutes of official exercise.

105 minutes total - 60 minutes yoga, 45 minutes treadmill.  More importantly my diet on point after a week of terrible eating. Enough calories left over for a glass or two before bed.

It's so much easier to flip the switch back on now.  It just feels normal to log my meals now.  I feel like I have permanently turned the corner.  I know some of you don't do calorie tracking. I was never that guy.  It's changed my life.

I really, really need to improve on the diet.  I was so much better when I was going into the office every day.  I had basically cut out snacking all together.  Now I'm snacking constantly (today I ate an ice cream bar and some BBQ chips about an hour after lunch).  What App do you use?

I started counting my wife's calories and it's changed my life...

In all seriousness I started figuring out BMR or whatever, long division required but it spit out something like 1,950 calories a day and I lowered that to about 1800. I also was reading that I would likely burn 2,500-3,000+ calories a day if I exercise 4-5x a week which is a lot and then again it's not if you are active. At that point it's pretty simple math of about 500-1,000 calories less you are taking in vs burning. 3,500 calories in a pound...you would lose about 1-2 lbs per week and not starve to death while doing it. 

My big enemies at the moment are dairy, I love it in my coffee and I drink plenty of it. Orange juice vs eating an orange. And I like both hot and cold cereal/oatmeal and I like milk with it.

Yesterday was day 25/100- only able to get in a 32min run before I was hit with a case of the bubbleguts. This has happened 3 or 4 days in a row now. Not sure what’s up with that. 
On the plus side, my new running shoes finally arrived. I had been having some left ankle and right calf pain lately when I was running, but that didn’t happen yesterday with the new shoes. I figured the old ones were the cause, but it was good to have confirmation.

 

Day 26/100- Playing disc golf later. I’ll go ahead and book 60mins. I’ll tally my total for the month later tonight. Should be on track, if not already at 1000.

ETA: 982mins

Tecumseh mentioned bubble guts, not sure what that is but I have been getting a queasy tummy the last couple days. We do make infrequent trips to grocery store etc...who knows maybe we got the Pacifico-18 or whatever they call it. 

120 minutes walking over a Morning and Night session. 

-We have seen several deer around here at sunset the last couple weeks since so many people are home, the 5:00-7:00 rush of cars coming home just isn't there, everything is real quiet and by sunset you can hear a pin drop. Tonight we were walking and a white tail female deer was gliding along the outskirts of our home and we watched her for a bit, seemed like she might be looking for a Buck if you catch my drift, it is Spring around here. 

We would never see anything like that when things are going fast like they normally are. We have even found where they are coming down from the Preserve into the golf course, they just walk between the houses and on to the 18th hole, it's just jaw dropping when you see them at Sunset. 

2,420 and 1,740...just doesn't seem possible but I've been there for all of them.

I did 27 minutes of yoga and 63 self-propelled forward motion today, for 90 total.  I don't know my month total and don't care.  I'm in the kevzilla DGAF mode at the moment.  Maybe tomorrow will be better!

Yeah DGAF was definitely laying somewhere under neath it all today for me. 

I am hoping to break thru 200 by May 1st but I have also decided that as long as I am eating somewhat healthy and exercising on a more regular basis that it really doesn't matter when I hit certain goals, more about not going backwards and keeping it off for good.

I think many of us are in the DGAF mode and its understandable.  I had a realization today, it isn't anything new/earth-shattering, but I decide to give whatever I could in terms of diet/exercise while under COVID19 quarantine.  Yesterday I ended with 2500 steps and ate terribly, but so what!  Today was better with nearly 12K steps.  Like MOP said above, we just need to maintain as best we can and push through/forget about the bad days/moments and do better then next day.

Yep, I'm in agreement with both of you - trying to give myself a break right now and not get worked up by my missteps.  The biggest for me is that I am drinking wine again pretty much every day.  Not to excess...but at least a little every evening.  I'd gotten out of that habit but I'm not beating myself up for it right now.

I didn’t exercise at all today, hows that for DGAF. Kids interfered with morning workout, was stuck at my desk all day on calls and other nonsense late into the night. Not a walk, not a bike ride, not a row. Nothing. 
 

Oh and when I reached down to put on my pants this morning and when I did that I felt a pain shoot up my lower back. For the rest of the day that first one degree bending forward was excruciating but totally fine past that. Wtf. I’m hoping it’s better tomorrow.
