  • CW: 185 So yeah. I went to Seattle, had a ton of fun, and on my second to last day I broke a rib and my dad called me from the hospital. A bad infection complicated by his MS shut down his kidneys and nearly killed him. He spent a week there and is now at home on a cocktail of drugs and IVs. He's improving slowly. Needless…
  • I've averaged 12K steps since getting here. Today I hit 17,000 steps... and my shins hurt! My feet and knees are basically fine, but my shins and hips ache like crazy. Of course, Seattle is 95% hill. So. We did the underground walking tour today, it was really interesting. We also visited the first Starbucks, which was…
  • Still in Seattle until Tuesday. :) Tomorrow we hit MoPop and hopefully the underground tour if it's not too cold.
  • Hey, I am alive... and in Seattle! These last few days have been one crisis after the other, with our cat sitter getting covid and canceling and the travel requirements and work... Anyway. Now that we're here I can breathe, but I won't have a scale until Tuesday. I'm expecting lots of walking. Last weight was 183.
  • CW: 182.6 Sorry for the lateness, I worked most of the weekend and it borked my sense of time pretty bad. Also I'm beyond exhausted. Ate a lot of (company provided) fast food this weekend trying to force our way through some problems. :/
  • Yesterday was day 4 of my "exercise every day" week-long personal challenge and... I feel like a zombie. I've never been this tired or miserable in my life, and I'm only doing cardio for 30 minutes. My insomnia seems worse in some ways. Next week maybe I'll try every other day and see if that works better. Countdown:…
  • There's a McDonald's across the street. I can see it from my bedroom window. Their nuggets and breakfast sandwiches are my kryptonite I swear. I try to make my own at home instead as much as possible. Got a lil egg patty maker, some low cal buns, and of course the fried chicken recipe that I really gotta try in my air…
  • Ack! I knew, just knew someone would say tomatoes. I loathe tomatoes. They are just. Way too gross for me, guys. So slimy and the taste is just. No. D: Aside from green beans, carrots and asparagus, there's not much I'll eat tbh. Very picky eaters in this house.
  • Random fact: I damaged my left hip when I was 15 by taking a dramatic dive off a galloping horse into a bush. Sometimes it still aches randomly. Like today. Tonight is likely to be less exercise and more stretching/rolling I think. =P Tomorrow's dinner is bacon and eggs and I can't think of any veggies I'd want to eat as a…
  • @PlaneMonkey So far all I've air fried are green beans and carrot chips, and both turned out lovely. I use a teaspoon of olive oil and a healthy dash of steak spice and fry for 7 minutes at 355. Perfectly delish. This week is an experiment. I'm going to exercise at least 30 minutes every day except Tuesday and eat veggies…
  • CW: 182.6 Bought an air fryer. It makes delicious veggies. I'm gonna try control my hunger this week with more greens.
  • CW: 181.8 I'm just not... there. Mentally. I know what I need to do but it's so much harder than it was.
  • CW: 182 It was our friends' daughter's first birthday yesterday. She basically made my year by crawling into my lap and hugging me, which was omg. Turns out being chosen for baby cuddles is just as incredible as being chosen for puppy or kitten cuddles. :blush: I don't really want kids but I'm happy to cuddle anyone else's…
  • Well. Husband gave up chocolate for Lent. He says this will help him (and therefore me) resist all those tasty desserts we keep wrecking our calorie deficits with. It doesn't stop my coworkers from bringing me donuts, but supposedly I get an office soon and then I can close my door on them. ;) Got a 30 minute workout in…
  • So I paid for a year of something called Supernatural (not the TV show). It's an Oculus fitness program, with rhythm game-like workouts directed by an assortment of different personal trainers. There's also a ton of stretches and some meditation and stuff. I miss the gym. I miss weights. Mostly I miss feeling like the gym…
  • CW: 181.8 A bit rough this week. Husband had a wisdom tooth removed and is on a primarily mashed potatoes and ice cream diet for a week or so. Leaving me to ineffectively try and cook for myself. I'm bad at it. =P
  • CW: 183 I mean. I warned you. I was drinking sour raspberry shots because it tastes like alcoholic Sour Gushers, and there's nothing I love quite like alcoholic drinks that taste like childhood candy. Anyways. Alcohol absolutely wrecks my scale reading. Something about water retention probably. Plus I ate a LOT of cake.…
  • Happy Birthday to Me! I turned 34 today, and everyone knows calories don't count during your Birthday party, which is tomorrow. So uh. My number for Sunday will probably be awful. I'm planning to do shots tomorrow night until I run out of Sour Raspberry or pass out. I'm thinking either Game of Life or Mario Party would…
  • @jugar 2 ingredient pizza dough: 1.5 cups of self rising flour and 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt. Self rising flour can be made by add 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt to 1.5 cups of regular flour. I also added 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder and Italian seasoning as well since it'd be a bit bland…
  • CW: 179.4 I finally tried 2 ingredient pizza dough and I'm floored at how well it worked. It tastes like solidly good pizza crust.
  • CW: 182 Rough week. Having some stomach problems. :(
  • @jugar I only had the courage to weigh myself the once, so my weight is 181.6 until I look again next Sunday. Husband starts a new job that's WFH and I'm hoping the 2 hours of commuting that saves us every day will help me get more sleep and exercise.
  • @jugar Put me back in coach! I think I'm ready to try again, and my weight is what it is. I really want to at least get back where I was before everything went awful. I obviously need some more accountability. And yes, I am working on credit where credit is due. Once upon a time I was 281 pounds. It's not like I completely…
  • Hey guys. Long time no see. Not sure if I'm still counted as a group member but I wanted to pop in and let everyone know I'm still alive after a very rough couple of months. Starting over at 181.6 pounds is... hard. It hurts that I let myself slide. But I've started working out again, and all the holiday chocolate is gone,…
  • CW: 166 I'm on vacation and struggling to relax. My insomnia is brutal. I got a whole 3 hours of sleep, which is honestly longer than some nights. :/ I've decided, having finished a quite heavily psychological series of books that I enjoyed but kind of weighed on me, to only read very silly romance novels this week. Kindle…
  • CW: 168 That is Sunday's weight, now that I can finally log in! I used to weigh daily but I'm strictly once a week now, since I don't need those regular reminders that I'm backsliding. :/ There was a party on Saturday that resulted in this gain though. Some snooty thing for the doctors my husband works with that we ended…
  • I didn't know it was a thing honestly. I kind of landed in Safety by accident and I've spent the last few years just doing my best to pick it up as I go. My education and work experience are more land use research/law based. =P I honestly should probably look more into it but I'm also not great at walking into rooms full…
  • @bowens1973 I'm also a safety person in oil and gas. Well, oil and gas adjacent. We make H2S analyzers (among other things). But I'm only up to 6.5 years. =P
  • CW: 167 Been hitting the Halloween candy hard. =P Next week will be better! Assuming I can ever post. Having the worst time getting in this weekend. :\ Five facts about me: 1) I met my husband when I was 17. He's the only person I've ever been with and I've very nearly been with him longer than I was alive before meeting…
  • CW: 164 Got my flu shot and it was rough as heck. It's important so I always do it but... ugh.
