    I’m a 1977 baby. Born at the peak of Disco. My Dad had a pretty sweet purple leisure suit 😂👏🏻

    Hey kids, hope all is well.

    Happy Friday.

    I am down 5 pounds. I wasn't even trying. I'll take it.

    Putting a lot of emphasis on legs 🦵and my back.

    One of my 🐕's is slowing down and I know the inevitable is slowly upon me. Been to the vet a lot over the last 2 weeks with him. We are having all kinds of celebrations with him in the meantime.

    Have a great weekend ahead.
    Congrats on the 5lbs and sorry about the 🐕 not a good thing to cope with for sure.

    I just stepped on the scale after "the move" this morning. I am down 16 lbs since Sept (down 15 lbs since I started using the WW app), so the trend is definitely going in the right direction! Hubby did NOT get the (basement) gym finished, so I will be doing a "season of cardio" for the foreseeable future.....which is fine. I choose not to complain - our new house is so lovely and I am so happy to have a home at all!!

    Oh good, I was hoping people in their 40s had a space here lol. I just turned 40 a couple weeks ago, and so much in my mindset has changed.. almost instantly. The first thing I noticed is how many people in their mid 20s to early 30s I follow on socials for fitness and health inspiration, and that it might be WHY I am having such a hard time relating to them.

    Anyways, this is a new account, but I have used MFP off and on before. Hoping to find a healthy balance and figure out how to do this in a sustainable way.

    Got room for more?
    I'm a '74 baby. Crap.. Been here in the past but really focused now. It seemed like once I hit 42, I noticed lots of changes. More aches and pains in joints, eye sight (need reading glasses +1.25) and the dang grey hair. LOL! I guess it could be worse.

    After a crappy 2020, I wanted to make significant changes in 2021 to focus on my health and lose weight. Healthy body, healthy mind as they say.
    I'm down 17lbs since Jan 1 all using CICO and exercise 5x a week. Mostly Youtube videos - Caroline Girvan, Brian Syuki and FitnessBlender. Love strength, walking, step and kettlebell.

    Making this my lifestyle.

    Hey kids, hope all is well.

    I put my baby boy down early this morning. It's been a trying few weeks. Hiking will not be the same without him.

    A brisk walk is all I can handle today.

    Have a great evening ahead.


    Be strong, Kym. You've got a few tough days ahead.

    I'll take you hiking with Daisy and myself (virtually) until you get a new companion.

    Steve,

    It's was agonizing watching him decline. Not seeing him at the door when I got home is when the reality of it set in.

    I'd be honored to virtually hike with both you and Daisy.

    Thanks for your kindness.

    Hey kids,

    Took a walk again today.

    I know my baby boy does not want me to be sad, yet I am.

    Have a great day ahead.

    Hey kids,

    Walked today.

    My body is definitely craving weights.

    (((caramel)))

    I hope you can get back to weightlifting soon.

    I have not lifted weights in 3.5 weeks....the longest break in a decade!

    The Home Gym is not built and all the basement boxes are in the way. I am walking outside when I can. I hope the Home Gym is done in the next 6- to 8- weeks. I expect I will have lost strength — I don’t want to stress about it. I have enough stress!

    Gotta do better at keeping up with my logging... In the past week, I hit the gym 3 times...

    Heavy (5x5) Deadlifts
    Moderate (3x10) Chest & shoulder & tri's
    Heavy (5x5) Back & bi's

    What was UNscheduled was helping my son move out of his apartment and back into my basement, rushing to try to beat the blizzard.

    Did my second kettlebell marathon doing long cycle. Managed to do 35 minutes at 12kg and then dropped to 8kg for the rest when I felt my hands ripping.
