    All good, Belar :)

    Made it to the gym this morning. Proud of myself.

    15lbs shoulder press x 20
    12lb med ball slam x20
    x3

    10lb lateral raises x20
    12lb med ball slam to the side x20
    x3

    arm circles x20
    "shrugs" holding 20lb each hand x20
    x3

    All by myself :eek:

    ... Then I got home and fell in my stairway and I fucked up my knee.
    I hope it's not injured and is just sore.

    I went on Monday. I'm getting to where I don't mind going, but I have to fight myself to get motivated to just go. Doug going helps alot.

    I don't go until like 8-9 pm. No way that I'd be consistent and go in the morning, so night works better for me.

    I did:
    Leg Press - 210 lbs x12
    Romanian Deadlift w/ dumbbells - 40 lbs total x12
    Front -Lateral -Front raises ("Spiders") - 10 lbs total x12 (you'd never expect 5 lbs to be so heavy...)
    Reverse Pulldowns - 70 lbs x12
    Decline Benchpress on Hammer Strength machine - 40 lbs total x12
    4 sets of each

    I alternate this with another "full body" workout. I do notice I'm slowly getting stronger in some ways. My shoulders are definitely still weak, but getting better. Legs too.

    I would love to participate however might be a little different from the usual.
    I am weighting now 120 pounds / 54 kg -- but I am a short person. This by all means doesn't mean I am 'skinny' or 'overweight', nor am I 'underweight'.
    What the problem is however, is that I need to eat more healthy. I don't eat healthy enough! And since I am 5'2" - 157 cm it is not a bad weight.
    However, I realize I eat more sugar than vegetables! So my personal goal is to try eat more healthy and perhaps go down to 115 / 52 kg- which is my comfort weight. [This is not underweight]
    It's difficult, but aside from less sugar [or more specific; less soda!] I need to exercise more, so I hope this challenge gives me motivation to start walking again. ^.^
    Any ideas? Anyone who want to join daily 30 mins walking? Hit me up. :) Timezone don't matter - we can figure something out. Given my bad health and condition, this could help!
    I am surprised this thread happen and exists, and it makes me even more happy and hopefully very motivated like all of you. My starting weight then is 120 / 54 kg
    I would be not minding if I stay same weight in the end, as long as I make more healthy choices in diet and more frequent exercise!

    Yes! That's exactly what this is for :)

    Helping each other make healthy choices. Mostly this thread is here so we can hold each other accountable for things, which I personally find helpful.

    I started wearing a fitbit to track my steps and I had started walking around job's building during my breaks (2 15min, 1 30min lunch). I'd walk around the building 4 times and that was about .5miles - took about 13 - 15 minutes so perfect for my break and that was a good way to just get some walking in and be outside.

    Howeverrrr... I sprained my knee on Wednesday D:
    It feels better today than it did yesterday but can't be walking around on it too much...
    Hopefully I feel better next week and can get back into my routine.

    I think it's good to spread some exercise in throughout the day. So going for a 15 minute walk 3 times a day seemed like a good place to start :)

    329.8 lbs.

    Lol I'm creeping down now. But still eating well (other than a couple weekend cheat days we had), and going to the gym. And I still have energy, so I can't complain.

    Good job, Zek.

    I've been staying the same. Diet's not been good.
    Under a lot of stress this week. Still exercising, just got home from the gym a bit ago actually.

    Knee still hurts but it's getting better.

    I did not work out all week. The gym had a stupid free week and there were tons of kids/teenagers running around in there being stupid and using most of the machines, so I said screw it. :D

    I gained a pound this week -.-
    My diet has been significantly better. But, the gain makes sense because last week I kinda ate.... donuts and chocolate... like not once, but a lot lol. So I think it's that catching up to me.

    This week I've been eating very well. Mostly chicken and vegatables. Oatmeal for breakfast. English muffin (w extra protein) with slices of ham right after or before the gym as a protein snack. Fruit w pudding for dessert. Snacks have been much smaller sizes. Cooking most meals at home.

    The gym routine is revving up. I'm going at night now which I'm really happy about. Feeling healthier overall.

    I lost 2% body fat. And at least an inch, in some places 3 inches all over. So that's pretty sweet.

    Starting to get little baby arm muscles which I'm overly proud of... :)

    I just realized I completed one goal... Closing the hundred pound gap between Zek and I. (I think) :D

    Honestly I'm surprised I've still lost the last couple weeks. I kind of stopped going to the gym when Doug started working, and even though I've still been cooking keto at home, we've went out to eat way too much and eating stuff we shouldn't.

    I'm going to have to kick Doug's butt, as like every night we do eat somewhere, he's been wanting to go get a Blizzard afterwards... While I have gotten one as well a couple times (I get small), I have turned it down several days too. Brat.

    Forgot to weigh Sunday but did Saturday since I figured I would forget. 225.6. Not happy it's going up but I'm not surprised and I don't expect a change this coming up week either. Busy busy times leads to eating out more unfortunately. Hopefully next week things will be stable again and I can try to reverse all the damage.

    Life varies so much. Stress, busy schedule, lack of time definitely makes grabbing something quick (and usually unheathy) the main source for meals. We've been doing the same, mainly for convenience. You'll get back on track in no time! And besides, you've still already lost over 15 lbs, so don't worry too much and keep going. :D

    Was busy with errands and only gymed for 2 days; and yet I lost like 2 pounds.
    I don't even know.. maybe muscle -> fat?
    Or water retention?
