  1. Have you considered getting daily devotionals sent to you? I'm sure you could google it and get a bunch of free ones and pick one that you like. It would help with the Bible Study aspect instead of just reading. Or you could mix the 2 and get one that allows you to read through the Bible in a set amount of time with the devotional attached.
  2. Man I wish I live at your house!!! All that food porn! Hope your family appreciates it. Looking good Matt - glad to have found you again!
  3. Weekly wrap up - yes I know it's a little early but I'm on vacation next week. Yoga: 0/3 Gardening: 0/2 - hoping to do some this afternoon/evening while waiting to put the 2nd coat on my bathtub. Celebrate Recovery: 2/3 for the challenge - and made a decision (I think) lol - stupid indecisiveness - No I've made a decision (yikes) just need to find the right fit in a sponsor Food: crap!! I didn't have one full paleo day this week. I'm still hovering around 210lbs which is down at least from 220, but this is not helping me get to where I want Goals for the upcoming week, while I am on vacat
  4. The program does sound good. I like the fact they were honest and upfront about it being a lengthy process. They said a few times these things don't happen over night, you hear testimonies and it seems like a few days or maybe months, but these things can take years. Also I have to work through the steps in my time with my sponsor (meeting 1hr a week for the entire process) so some things may take me longer and some shorter depending on what and how and when I'm ready to deal with certain things. I also like the fact they stress making healthy relationships within the group, so if I falter
  5. First off you are (doing) amazing!!!! Alot of people I know will have a post -workout shake or a protein bar immediately after their workout (strength training) it gives you body something good to feed on until you have a chance to rest, get home and get some food ready/in you. A Larabar would work good for this also. I'm all for prepping ahead and having something already made too. That's what I usually do (when I'm on the ball and not being lazy/slacking ), but if you don't have that ready some quick protein usually does the trick. Loving this! I think it's amazing the way you chat
  6. Thanks, I think it will go well It wasn't pain so much as muscle fatigue/ failure which is a good thing, but weird I wasn't sore because it felt like I was really pushing myself - will definitely keep an eye on it!! Gardening - I need to start scheduling it in. definitely need to start scheduling it in. Although with the bathroom I'm not sure it was the smartest of goals, but I will stick it out because I needs to be done. Squash hash browns -so yummy I cook the the exact same way I would do potato hashbrowns. So the meeting, It did go well. I enjoyed it. I do think that the meetings wil
  7. Thanks for stopping by Ladies! Week1 Day5 yoga: YES!! that's 3/3 if you count the bit I did on Monday - My ITunes died on me again :/ Going to have to make do until my vacation I think before I update it gardening: not yet - probably won't happen having a friend over for dinner Food: proten bar carrots/green peppers, peameal bacon burrito *purchased from a fabulous "fast food" place, but pretty healthy - nothing deep fried and healthy toppings -not paleo burgers w/fried mushrooms and onions (no bun), pasta salad, ice cream - made the pasta salad and bought the ice cream for my friend who wa
  8. Hey Terri - looking great - I didn't have time to read it all either, but I skimmed it all and 2 things popped out at me 1. squats - I pretend that there is a chair just a little to far away that I am trying to sit on - imagine just the tip of your butt trying to meet the very edge of the chair. You can physically use a chair or box or something if needed to get use to the feel.- *shrugs* it helps me. 2. squash cubes - Yummy!! hope they turned out not sure how you did them, but I prefer mine roasted with some garlic and sea salt. You can also "hashbrown" them. Enjoy!!
  9. Thanks Little Turtle - the past is the past, we do not stay there right?? Week1 Day4 yoga: YES!! woke up on time and did a session - It was very difficult though because I couldn't concentrate for long. gardening: nope Food: proten bar x2 (and still hungry ???) salad with sausage and balsamic vinagrette carrots/green peppers banana protein bar peameal sausage and 2 eggs Week1 Day (so far) yoga: YES!! that's 3/3 if you count the bit I did on Monday - My ITunes died on me again :/ Going to have to make do until my vacation I think before I update it gardening: not yet - probably won't hap
  10. Had the most horrible day yesterday at work - to the point I couldn't face anyone, didn't go to Bible study and lied to my mom to get off the phone - I'm a terrible person!!! I also think I'm getting my days a little messed up so Week 1, Day 3 yoga: nope - couldn't sleep (posted about this already) gardening: yes 20min to 1/2hr- the nice thing was it pissed down rain all day so the ground was soft, but I got soaked. Everything was wet and it rained a little on me Celebrate Recovery: 1/3 Food: proten bar x2 (one was at 5:30am cause I woke up starving and couldn't sleep) salad with sausage and
  11. Wow does that ring true with all the crap running around in my head right now. Thanks for sharing it. Yoga: nope - woke up at 4:30 starving and couldn't get back to sleep, then did and slept through my alarm Gardening: not yet - see next Celebrate recovery meeting: I went last night - heart pounding, stomach reeling, reminding my self to just take deep breaths. There was a very nice lady who greeted me and she runs the "new comers" so we had a little chat and she told me about the program after the main session. As the coordinator was speaking she mentioned there were "beach" decorations ev
  12. Thank you for the support - Love the minions!! There's a story about someone asking a centiped how it can walk? Do tell.... Nothing special - he smokes the wild berry tipped cigarellos that he gets in bulk on an Indian Reserve. So I steal one from him every once in a while when I get a craving. I quit smoking March 2013 as part of an NF challenge. So I really limit myself and look at it as a treat.
  13. Thanks for letting me be honest with you. Sounds like you have thought it through. Track on!!
  14. WEEK 1 DAY 1 Yoga - didn't do a session - but did make time to do some sun salutations and warrior poses Gardening - not yet - see below on where I spent my time Celebrate recovery meeting - is tonight - trying to decide to go to it or go to crossfit as I didn't go to crossfit last night and I could really use a good work out. Food - proten bar salad with sausage and balsamic vinagrette peach (fresh right off the tree -so YUMMY!!) carrots/radishes/green beans dinner at the bbq - chicken breast, sausage, chickpea/artichoke salad (paleo besides the chicpeas), potato salad (small scoop and savo
  15. Found ya!! Goals look good. Love the fact you smashed your running 1 mile goal already!! Are you going to go for 2? Dare I say 3??? Can I be slightly negative/ mom like for a second?? It seems to me that in your past goals when you started to try to track everything - like you are with your food and timing goals - is when you would become overwhelmed and "fail" at the challenge. You did so amazingly well last challenge, and I know the nerd in you likes to track things and that you love spreadsheets. Tracking can be very good, I've used it myself in a few of my challenges, I'm wondering if
  16. Ok guys, It's on and I'm freaking out already. I'm so stressed at work and trying to figure out some renovation stuff at my house, I keep thinking I can't do this. This is the very reason I did not participate in the last challenge. Why would I add the stress of "having" to do something for a challenge???? UGH!! Ok - I don't HAVE to do this, I WANT to do this!!!! (well all except for the gardening! ) Breathe in: I am worth making healthy choices Breathe out: negative thoughts Breathe in: I am worth making healthy meals for myself Breathe out: junk food Breathe in: I am worth making healthy
  17. You can do it! I felt the same way when I deleted mine. But just think of all the fun things you can do with your spare time!
  18. Good to know. I did it last night with some chocolate and found I didn't immediately want to eat more. So I thought why can't I implement this more often? I really should enjoy my food not shove it down in guilt. I eat and live alone so it's really easy to "hide" when/what I eat. :/ Thank you Thanks, still working out the point system especially for the food. I kinda had it worked out in the planning stage, but then I decided to be all druidy this challenge so it changed a little. I will update when I figure it out. It will be based on how I eat and the food decisions I make, no
  19. Howdy All - I'm usually a ranger, but I need to find some balance in my life and make some decisions and seeing as this challenge is focused on food and figuring some stuff out about who I am and what I want. So....without further ado My main goal is to weigh less than 200lbs - I currently sit at around 220 - I was down around 198 at the beginning of the year but then I lost my focus and started eating like crap. Goal 1 - 80 -90% Paleo I know eating paleo works for me. A. Stop buying non-paleo food stuffs! I have some still around the house I will try to use up instead of wasting, but I w
  20. I read a lot of "What if" up there. You can NOT sit around and think about what MIGHT happen. Yes I know you need to look at the future and make smart decisions. But stop focusing on what could be and focus on what you have control of at this moment. Eat as much good food as you can. Do whatever work outs you can and help out when you can. I know you are back at that house and the memories come back, but you need to focus on you, just like you where doing when you left. Remember what Brute Squad said - you are an adult now. You have a responsibility for yourself, not for your parents. We
  21. Whew!! Just got caught up. I can't belive all the good things! I can't say enough good things about all I've read. You are in such a great place right now....keep rolling with it. I find for snack foods - fruit and veggies are the best. Fruit is great because things like apples/oranges/plums bananas - everything except berries and melon really you can just grab and go. It is always ready and you can buy one or two to try it and see if you like it without wasting a lot of money. Veggies can take some prep time if you want it to, or you can buy the precut ones. It might be your best bet at
  22. check my account today and found I had an extra $300! from the government no les!!! Very good day.
