  3. Hey all! Challenge wrap up: Overall, I feel I did good with the challenge. I hit about 75% of my goal, not bad considering some of the bad habits I've picked up over the last year. I'm planning on skipping the next challenge and getting my goals into the academy so I can track them better. Thanks to all of you for all the support. I'd love to keep connected with you, and I'm still updating my battle log here: Captncid - the journey continues https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http%3A%2F%2Frebellion%2Enerdfitness%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F58848-Captncid---the-journey-continues&share_tid=58848&share_fid=26425&share_type=t Just as a bonus, here is a picture of the first cucumber to come out of the greenhouse. It's about 18" long! Sent by captain's orders via raven

  5. Hey all! Been running a challenge, so sorry I haven't been updating much here. Wanted to at least share some pics of the greenhouse, it is going crazy. Sent by captain's orders via raven
  6. I agree with all the above comments. You are such a wonderful person and you are getting wins in! As it has already been said, celebrate your wins, forgive yourself when things don't go as planned. You are human, after all. Always remember to breathe. You can do this. I believe in you.

  7. Thanks. If it stays here, all good. I'll just pay more attention next challenge. [emoji12] Sent by captain's orders via raven
  8. Hey all! Been a busy week. As far as the challenge goes, I'd say this last week was simply ok. My water intake started awesome. The last two days, not so much. Day before yesterday I simply did not drink enough and yesterday I forgot my water bottle at home. I'm still at least drinking more than I have been in the past, so mini win for me! Water: 5 out of 7 days Food was not quite as good. A couple 13 hour days really took its toll on me. I did manage to get just better than half of the days done, though. Food: 4 of 7 days Definite room for improvement and I am proud of the progress I am making so far. I may have to revisit these goals in another challenge, however I like what I am seeing so far! I hope you all have a fantastic day! I'll also post a greenhouse update if anyone is interested in both my daily battle log and the gardening thread. I'll link to both once they are up.

  9. Hi Hira!! As promised: Captncid - getting back in the saddle https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http%3A%2F%2Frebellion%2Enerdfitness%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F84632-Captncid---getting-back-in-the-saddle&share_tid=84632&share_fid=26425&share_type=t Sent by captain's orders via raven

  11. Hi all! It's been a while since I jumped into a challenge. I was asked if I'd like to join this one a little late, so I figured now is the time to get back to it!! Just to get back into it, I just have 2 goals for the remainder of this challenge. 1. More water I've fallen back into drinking energy drinks and it is starting to get to me. My goal for this is to drink 2 liters of water per day. It is almost twice what I drink now, so I figure I will have to cut down on the energy drinks to make this goal. 2. Make all meals from home 5 of 7 days a week. I work 12 hours overnight and haven't been planning or preping meals for a long while now. This goal is to help me get back into the habit. On a side note, I also am starting a greenhouse this year and have been updating here if you'd like to see.

  12. Hey all! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I just did a big update on the greenhouse here: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/79393-Garden-Planning---What-Do-You-Want-To-Grow%3F/page__view__findpost__p__1942711&share_tid=79393&share_fid=26425&share_type=t&share_pid=1942711 That's pretty much what I've been working on lately. I will be starting the new challenge in a few days, still working on goals. Sent by captain's orders via raven
  13. Pretty much done! Just gotta get more plants in! Sent by captain's orders via raven
  14. Oh, ok. Maybe I'll look into it to avoid that restaurant... [emoji12]
  15. They are just goldfish for now. They are just for the nutrients. I eventually do want to do some sort of edible fish eventually. I've been thinking catfish or perch. Goldfish were just an easy starter and, quite frankly, are a hearty fish in case I make mistakes. They tend to be able to live through most stuff. I haven't seen the golden carp yet, I will have to look that up.
  16. Hey all! Sorry it's been a while since I last posted, just dealing with life. Been keeping busy, having my puppy around has helped with the loss of my other dog. Made some progress on the aquaponics greenhouse! So, here is a recap: After some cold weeks, I finally got to here: After a few more weeks, I got to this stage: Then, about a week and a half ago, I was here: And then, my last 3 days off, I finally got here: I do have cucumbers, zucchini, and a couple different peppers planted so far. I have a little more work to go, however it is officially going!! I'm thinking of starting a gardening thread if there isn't one already. I'll still update the progress here as well!

  17. Sad week for me, my favorite dog of all time passed away this last Tuesday. Unfortunately she had something rupture in her belly and it took her down in less than 12 hours. I was kicking myself because I wasn't home and thought if I was that I may have been able to save her. My wife got her to the vet in the afternoon. After speaking with the vet, they had said even if I had been able to get her in that morning, it still was too late. She will be missed.
  18. Wow, I really stepped out for a while, didn't I? Well, not a whole lot to report. My job is starting to change responsibilities, and it has cut some serious stress off of me. For the first time last week, I felt like I slept well during the work week. For those that don't know, when I work, I stay in my travel trailer all week. It became clear early on with this job that if I drove the hour and a half one way commute every day that it may literally kill me. I almost fell asleep on more than one occasion going home. I work 12 hour shifts at night, so needless to say, I would rather stay up there for a few days a week than die coming home. Since I last updated, I bought a new home for my family. We love the area and I don't really want to live close to work. It's not the best place to live in my opinion. The nice thing is with the new place, I finally got a yard where I can set up the garden and greenhouse I wanted. Home grown food has always tasted better and I miss the connection I get with growing my own food. The garden will be a traditional one and the greenhouse will be an aquaponics greenhouse, meaning the combination of fish and plants to create a synergistic system to grow food. I finally got the greenhouse up today and I am working on putting the system in now. Here is the greenhouse: This is the start of the hole for my sump pit, basically the low spot for the water. I'll take more pictures as I build stuff. Does anyone have any suggestions for fruits and veggies to plant? I have a few ideas, but I need more for the amount of growing space I have. I'm also thinking about starting some sort of gardening thread if there isn't one once things are up and going. That's about it for now. Sorry I've been out so long, I'm rebuilding some habits and decided I need to update here more often. I hope everyone had a great day!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  22. Things are going good. I just got done working two weeks straight at 13 hours a day. Still recovering from that ordeal. I've been having a little trouble keeping up with workouts and eating, however I have the next couple days off. I plan to take some time to iron all that out. More to follow!
