    Restarted MFP after a break, another injury. On the Mens health 10 day challenge to lose weight in 10 days. So far day 7 i'm down 2+. The author went down 6 but his output far greater than mine. Still I wanted to move the needle. . In three more days perhaps a solid three pounds. I need to lose around 15 all together.He cut his cals down, increased walking to 15-20,000 steps a day, which is like 12 miles..... and kept his protein levels around 1 gram per pound of body weight. When working out years ago on p90x macros of 50-30-20 protein carbs fat seemed to work for me. Thats what i'm doing. Ill continue after ten days but wanted to move the needle haha.

    Just wanted to get this off my chest you dont need to answer but I have found it's best to not bottle things up for my well being.

    A difficult few days my hubby is great and I love him to pieces but he can be volatile and moody which can be quite stressful, I have learned over the years when to keep quite or stay out of the way, it's not physical just verbal or continued silences The other day we got up and I am not sure why but he was moody everything I did was wrong so I stayed out of the way that made matters worse. Today so far it's like walking on egg shells , its physically draining as it used to bo ok when I was working, I know a lots of it is his painful joints and hay fever and frustration due to his age and not being able to do things but hey ho I guess I will just grit my teeth.

    Hopefully no-one minds me sharing this I feel better getting it off my chest already!

    Have you ever thought of seeking therapy for yourself and him? That is really no way to live. You shouldn't have to basically live in fear of upsetting your husband. I hope you can find some help for this situation

    Cracked up when I read your comment, Tony. And then flashed on this old Jerry Lee Lewis tune.

    I was 36 for a LONG LONG time. At my last birthday, I decided I probably could let myself be 42. So that's what it is for now. Garmin tells me my fitness age is actually less than that, so woo hoo. I guess I can just be my fitness age and be sub-40 instead of over 50. Nah. I'll just stick with 42.

    I have a buddy that started counting backwards at 50.

    I to take a fitness walk today....I differentiate walks. We do adventure walks where we find something to explore, family walks which are slow and fit was walks where I typically go 5km as fast as I can. I added 100m light jogs to it today to test the knee and I managed to get the time under 40 minutes. While walking I decided i will make an August fitness challenge. So I'm challenging myself to do some sort of workout most days and get into shape.by September 1... we'll see how long it lasts

    I am level 39. I will be level 40 soon, and everyone knows that's when you get the really cool spells

    I fall into the 50ish category and would be happy to loose 50ish pounds. Seriously, I've used MFP previously but stepped back from it years ago but here I am again working out at my gym walking etc etc.... I'm seeing it's not the lack of exercise that kills me but what I choose to put in my body.... Looking forward to making some friends...
