    Measure what you want to improve

    There's no time like the present to start working to achieve my goals.

    Areas I want to improve:

    Weight: 204 lbs
    Waist: 38"
    Stomach: 46.5"
    Bicep: 16"
    Upper body strength: Gallon of water (5x)
    Thighs: 26.5"
    Shirt Size: L
    Dress Size: 16
    Stamina: Groggy in the afternoons and snooze too much in the mornings
    Focus: Not ahead on work and no routine
    Wrist strength: Typing is proving painful and that is my main source of income.

    Plan of action
    1. Walk dog 2x each day for 30 minutes each time.
    2. Finish 1 pitcher of naturally flavored water each day.
    3. Row 15 minutes each weekday evening with spouse.
    4. DailyDare
    5. Jump rope 30-Day Darebee challenge
    6. Yoga for 120 minutes/week.
    7. Swimming for 120 minutes/week.
    8. No dairy for 5/7 days each week.

    My commitment is to update my activity daily and update my metrics in 30 days.

    Have you seen an occupational therapist for your wrist? It might help.

      I have not yet seen an occupational therapist for my wrist. Great suggestion!

        Update: My week was not consistent. I had some good days and bad ones. I choose to simplify my plan of action. I have been dairy free completely since 3/23.

        Weight: 207.4 lbs
        Waist: 35"
        Stomach: 44"
        Bicep: 14.5"
        Upper body strength: Gallon of water (5x)
        Thighs: 27"
        Shirt Size: L
        Dress Size: 16
        Stamina: Groggy in the afternoons and snooze too much in the mornings
        Focus: Not ahead on work and no routine
        Wrist strength: Wrist was better this week. I minimized my workload and will do what I can to stay ahead on client work so as to avoid all-nighters.

        Plan of action
        1. Walk dog 2x each day for 30 minutes each time.
        2. Finish 1 pitcher of naturally flavored water each day.
        3. Row 15 minutes each weekday evening with spouse.
        4. DailyDare
        5. Barre for 120 minutes/week.
        6. No dairy.

        My commitment is to update my activity daily and update my metrics in 30 days.

              Thanks BlackButler!

              I am seeing results when I am consistent. Working hard to build consistency.

                Update: Two weeks gone and I can feel it! Some good things overall. Work is going well and I am doing really well on portion control. I haven't weighed myself in a few days which is better for my mental health. No dairy wasn't realistic for my family. I am focusing instead on portion control and eating mindfully.

                Weight: Haven't checked, but clothes are fitting a bit better.
                Waist: 35"
                Stomach: 44"
                Bicep: 14.5"
                Upper body strength: Gallon of water (5x)
                Thighs: 27"
                Shirt Size: L
                Dress Size: 16
                Stamina: Hard to wake up in the morning but staying relatively alert throughout the day.
                Focus: Caught up on work and have established clear priorities.
                Wrist strength: Wrist is getting stronger and inflammation is down since stress levels are down.

                Plan of action
                1. Walk dog 2x each day for 30 minutes each time.
                2. Finish 1 pitcher of naturally flavored water each day.
                3. Row 15 minutes each weekday evening with spouse.
                4. DailyDare
                5. Barre for 120 minutes/week.
                6. Eating mindfully.

                My commitment is to update my activity daily and update my metrics in 30 days. I will let you all know as soon as I do my Daily Dare each day.

                  Yesterday's DailyDare (climbers) didn't work well for my wrists. I did 20 high kicks instead.

                  Checked weight a little early and it is 204.4. Oh happy day!

                  Dog is getting his 2x walks and I am finishing the pitcher.
                  Haven't picked up rowing consistently nor incorporated barre yet.
                  I am eating mindfully, although yesterday that did include a brownie.

                    Looks like you've been figuring things out.

                    My wrists also hurt when I have my hands on the floor, for like pushups. Using something else to help me be in the same position, but not hurting my wrists, has helped. A pull-up bar, push-up stands, or a set of cans work. Sometimes I use my fists with straight wrists. The bending is what hurts me.
