    Day 4 of ab challenge and I'm glad I got it done but I'm upset at how out of shape I am. I gained 20 pounds since kid1 15 years ago but that doesn't tell the story. I was already 40 above my competition weight at that point and body weight leg lifts should not be this hard.
    Anyone else struggling with basic exercise?

    Struggling with basics??? I switched from regular squats to hack squats this month and almost died...or felt like I was going to die.

    Struggle is good. That's where you find progress. Nothing grows in a comfort zone.

    Keep at it - someday this will be your warm-up and you will be adding weights to reach the struggle!

    My non-dominant arm will be in a cast for two weeks and then immobilized for quite some time after that.

    Any tips, hacks, efficiencies, that you can recommend which I can implement throughout this time?

    You asking about workout tips, or general day-in-life tips?

    Heavy snow overnight and still falling. My oldest son tried to go to work, ended up spinning a 360 and into a ditch. He was able to drive out again, he's fine, but it convinced us to keep everybody home inside today, including my wife's college, my younger kids' school, and my gym time. Phooey.

    I do have to hit up the grocery store later, but before I do I will shovel the driveway. That will count as my workout today.

    Trying to get things under control. Anyone have any tips for breaking my sugar addiction? It’s my biggest hurdle to getting back to a healthy life. Feel free to add me too please!

    I can relate. I am affectionately referred to as the "Cookie Monster" by my family.

    Think about when you eat sugary treats. Are you bored? Dealing with some stress? Just craving some sugar? The first step is to be aware of your mindset at the time.

    I work in several different offices. There are usually some sugary treats around. I indulge occasionally, and I usually log it first. That alone will stop me sometimes.

    Otherwise, I just eat something that is more in line with my eating plan. I pack a lunch and take a cooler with me every day. I also carry my preferred snacks - jerky, boiled eggs, nuts, string cheese. I will eat one of those snacks instead of a doughnut or a cookie.

    And drink water - lots of water. I also use Mio water enhancer or buy drinks like VitaminWater. I am more inclined to drink if the water has some flavor.

    Will send you a friend request.

    So Friday I never actually left the house as it was snowing all day long, just cobbled together dinner out of whatever was in the cabinets and spent the day chilling. I think in the last six months there have been a grand total of about three days I didn't leave the house for any reason, just stay home in my PJ's and veg in front of the television with my wife. Good times, good times...

    But yesterday I did spend half an hour clearing my driveway before hitting the gym for squats and deadlifts, swapping back to doing five singles with progressively heavier weight rather than five triplets with the same weight. Not sure how much bang for the buck I'm getting, but it felt good to move the weight AND not feel injured before, during or after.
