    Hi all - not doing too much. Went blueberry picking on Sunday and a nice 5.5k walk yesterday.

    Last night I accomplished watching the first 5 episodes of The Last Ship Season 2...and drinking some whiskey!!!

    It wasn't a workout, but it was pretty awesome anyway!

    Workouts going well, added another 5 min to yesterday's "intense" cardio session (I do some "cardio" all 5 days, but 2x/week I increase the time and intensity - only twice a week though because I pretty much hate all cardio LOL), then did my weight lifting splits both days.

    May need to invest in a gym membership in a couple/few more months though - the dumbbells at our fitness center are pretty limiting since they only go up to 50 lb (x2). Which kind of bums me out because I LOVE the convenience of not having to drive to the gym every day! Fitness center at work pretty much has the same problem :(

    @nossmf That's awesome man, you're an inspiration. :)

    I'm ten whole days into my lifestyle change, consistently coming in under my calorie goal (1400), and getting in my 3000 steps a day (as another poster kindly remarked, gotta start somewhere. Lol). I'm adding reps of 10 modified push-ups, 10 squats, and 20-30sec planks as I'm able.

    Comforting to see I'm not the only one just starting or just starting over.

    Great show, thought it should have gone on another season or two.

    60 minute strength class last night. Along with a bunch of loaded squats and core work I benched 35lb dumbells 10x8. Last year I could only do it with 20's so I'm happy about the improvement.
    I also think I broke my toe yesterday afternoon, so that's gonna put a big X on my normally planned workouts for the next few weeks. Gotta keep those calories in check!

    Last night I didn't have enough time to lift ALL the weights because I had to taxi the ballerina...but I did get in a solid 30 reps of each, and something is better than nothing!!!

    Hey all! Stumbled across this group while in search for support. I just turned 40 in March, I did keto last year and lost a bunch of weight. I have put about 20lbs back on, and I am getting discouraged. Any ideas on how to limit carbs, while not going crazy

    I can't help you since I need carbs in my life, but I saw this thread today that has links to keto/low carb groups here on MFP.

    I've had quite a bit of success with Carb Cycling. https://healthline.com/nutrition/carb-cycling-101

    Right now I am doing Low Carb (under 40gm / Day) for two weeks, then Low Cal for two weeks, then back to the Low Carb. For me it works, and isn't as monotonous.

    I definitely want in this club. However, my days are varied due to work so reporting in may take longer. I turn 47 this fall, and am healthier than I was in my 20's, although I am heavier. (Working on it!) I have lost 32 of the 80 pounds I want to shed, struggle with emotional eating and getting enough nutrients into my meals. I am cutting down on dairy, love to kickbox and walk/hike, and want to run by my birthday in November. I started C25K but realized bad running shoes at this age is a real thing! So I walk, because some movement is better than none! Hi everyone! ^v^
