  • First week of yoga (WayBetter game) is done!

    I'm looking for a free app to replace the Pelaton one that I cancelled. Something that includes yoga and biking classes...any recommendations? I have heard of Fiton, but nothing else.

I LOVE that peleton app but it’s so expensive! I’m following this feed and hoping you get lots of suggestions.

Val E.

I don’t have a biking one to recommend, but I pay $20/yr (sometimes it’s on sale for $15/yr for the Downdog suite of apps. I really like it for yoga and plan to try out their HIIT and Barre apps soon since they’re already included in my subscription.

I was able to do a light cardio workout. Feeling well to move and exercise. Hope I can test negative for COVID in a couple of days (if the rule of 5 days is true).

I currently am covid positive also and the rules are really complicated. I plan to test after day 5 and the guidance says to mask up around everyone for the remainder of the 10 days if it’s negative. The CDC says to isolate the full 10 days if it’s positive still.
I’m making my decision of when to end isolation based on the fact that I’m not comfortable getting into the same space with my kids or recent cancer patient mom until after day 10, if I have had no fever for 24hrs, and my symptoms are resolved. I plan to treat the rest of the world with the same regard. I hope your symptoms are as mild as mine have been and best wishes on navigating these decisions.

Hey gang!

I like myself unconditionally!

Happy Thursday! Full schedule and kbox class this morning. Getting myself ready and psyched up for the game on Saturday. In my heart, I believe that Rodgers is due for a bad game and we'll control the clock by running the ball alot like we've done before. We're the underdogs here so really not expected to win. But we were the underdogs last week too.

Cardio: walk- 30 minutes (200 calories)

Strength: back- pulldowns, bent over barbell rows, seated cable rows, straight arm pulldowns. 4x12,10,8,6.

Assessment: Flanken short ribs for dinner. I treated myself to a little ice cream for my bday. Still on track for Rd 4 and should ace it no problem.

Good morning. Let's make this week count. Crush your goals and if you slip alittle then it's OK, just get back up and crush this week. Wishing you all of the best!

Question: I'm looking for more options for the 100-150 calorie snack. Does anyone want to share their favorites?

Wow you guys really have some great ideas!!! I wrote them down and will keep them in my fitness journal


Built bar puffs are my favourite snack. I also have cheese strings dipped into hummus, Whisps plain or with hummus, plain Greek yogurt with SF syrup and low carb low cal preserves (I make them myself) . Also if you like coffee, a mocha (coffee with cream and a tbsp of homemade SF cocoa mix) or coffee / cold brew with half or a whole ready made protein drink added. It’s sooo tasty.

Hello, I am Chris from Oklahoma, one of the most overweight states in America. I have been fat for years. This is a cool little challenge you have here. My plan is to win this thing by eating at Golden Corral everyday, watch me. Realistically, I'm probably one of the folks the rest of you are going to split money from. We'll see. I started at 227 and am down to 223.7 in a few days. But it probably won't last as I already had a hard time turning away from the cake today. It just goes so well with the coffee. Good luck to you all.

Coffee DOES go w/ cake. Also pie, cookies, donuts, etc. Skip the coffee. Switch to water. You can add, lemon, cucumbers, strawberries and such.


Welcome and :four_leaf_clover:
