I wanted to get back to maintaining a log here in order to get back on track with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

I have had a really hard time since the beginning of 2022 in staying motivated to consistently exercise and maintain healthy eating habits. I had started a couple of the programs here and stopped half-way through, and I really want to stick with it this time.

@val.lavigne86 , it was from here, but I think that it was taken off the site.

From what I can remember, there were 2 separate 100 days challenges where a person could do 50 reps or 100 reps of the following exercises:
  • punches;
  • side kicks;
  • lunges;
  • squats;
  • Sit-ups;
  • Push-ups; or
  • jumping Jacks.
I just wanted to complete these in my workouts in small groups

I stepped away from doing anything from the Darebee site today, but still kept up with my workout streak by doing a 10K run which was done as a virtual run for 'Step Up For Mental Health'. It wasn't one of my better times, but I still completed it in a time that was comparable to some of my previous 10K runs. I may be sore for a day or two since it has been several months since I really have done any running.

The people that organized the run set up the run as a virtual run or an in-person run for tomorrow (September 24th) in a city that is 2 &1/2 hours away from where I live. I was hesitant about doing any in person races this year still, but ended up not regretting my decision to do it as a virtual run after seeing 4 of my coworkers miss work this week due to Covid :(. I didn't have any close contact with any of them, but still will be taking care around people overall.

Darebee workouts were put on hold for the day, but still kept the workout streak going...

I did another 10K run for a virtual run today. My time wasn't as good as last week's run, but I wasn't too far off of that time. I did walk a little bit more this week in comparison to last week, which explains the difference between the two runs. I am not expecting to be sore like I was last week.

The option to get the Moderna Bivalent vaccine became available to people in my age group today, and my husband and I both got it, so I may end up with a sore arm instead of legs over the next few days. :blink:

Now that I have consistently exercised daily for the last 2 weeks, I am going to also get back into better eating habits and focus on some weight loss. I have gained ~10 - 12 lbs over the last 3 to 4 months and have really noticed a difference in how my clothes are fitting. I'll be using the scale, taking measurements and pictures as a way of monitoring progress. I'll talk about progress on a monthly basis.

First day using the gym at work since the pandemic started in 2020 has finally happened, but it was a fairly quiet experience. There was 5 of us (I am including myself in this number) that would be there every morning before work prior to the pandemic, and we got to know each other fairly well. Of the others, one will not be coming back as he is retiring at the end of the week, the second is undecided about coming back, the third is looking at later in the month and the last one is unknown.
