  1. Bah, it's always so frustrating when something that was meant to be fun turns sour. I'm glad your 2nd attempt was better though, and ended on a good note. Weight loss really is such a slog - I think focusing on a workout program will be much more fulfilling for you! I hope you're able to find a good balance.
  2. Heck yes - great job with your respawn! I too am a little dismayed that I let so much of my hard work get undone, but you're right - we're at where we're at and all we can do is the work we need to from here. So great that your modified work schedule is in effect now too! That will help so much with energy and mental capacity and general dealing with it-ness. Way to crush it! You got this. (Also I am totally up for some accountability check ins! Just not Facebook, it gives me anxiety haha. I prefer WhatsApp, but I can download telegram??)
  3. I can't totally remember how last week ended, other than overdoing it Saturday night at a small party at my bestie's. So Sunday was definitely a recovery day haha This week is actually going really well though. While I'm not always hitting my veggies at dinner goal, it's still been moving me in the right direction. Overall my meals have been getting healthier, and breakfasts and lunches have been more whole food oriented lately. Tuesday and Thursday we played disc golf, so my steps goals are in the process of being crushed this week. And I actually D
  4. Surprisingly well, despite the radio silence Although I think one of my goals for next time should be around actually checking in on my own thread and my friends! It's a really good idea, I'll need to think of what to do. I've tried picking up the barre workouts again several times, but I'm just struggling to make a habit. Maybe I can find a yoga one? For some reason summers make me want to do yoga.
  5. Oh man, did I EVER need this 5 day weekend. And now only 2 days of work and it's the weekend again! Let's see. Monday it rained ALL day. I basically played Diablo 3 all day, it was great. Dinner was spaghetti squash with meatballs and tomato sauce, caesar salad and garlic toast. Definitely met my veggie goal. Not much walking, because I did not feel up to braving the elements! Tuesday we drove to a disc golf course about 45 mins away. Brought the dogs and a picnic lunch and played a couple rounds. I think we ALL needed that! It was overcast and mediu
  6. This was more validating than I realized I needed, so thank you. It's okay that it's hard. Social time is much needed - There's too many weeks when I see no one but my husband... Gardening is keeping my soul alive right now!
  7. Hey, no, I am NOT abandoning this challenge, even if I did mostly abandon my goals this week. I did make that shawarma salad I mentioned, so I did at least hit my veggie goal that night. And also yesterday - I made a big batch of roasted veggies (peppers, carrots, broccoli, onions, purple cabbage and zucchini), and turned some of it into a salad with spinach and lentils. And also hamburgers because, you now, balance. No workouts though and pathetically few steps. I met my goal yesterday but that was about it. It was rainy and cold all week. And the burnout is re
  8. I'm sorry your Sunday was rough. It sounds like you managed to correct course though and hopefully set yourself up for a decent week! What did you plan for meals? Huzzah for garden/yard progress! It's going to be such a gratifying project. And HEY! You survived tax season! You can breeeeeeeathe now! It's gonna get better.
  9. Week Two Day One: Met my veggie goal, but that was about it! It was a very brain draining day at work. Fine, overall, but just mentally exhausted by the end of it. I did take the dogs for a decent walk on my lunch break, but it wasn't enough to get my 7000 steps in. It's supposed to get rainy and cold for a few days here Of course, I try to push the garden planting up by a week (May long weekend is traditionally the first planting weekend around here as it's usually after the last frost date) and now it's going to drop below zero overnight for
  10. That is awesome! Our yard isn't big enough for much, but we do have a basket out there for putting practice.
  11. Week One Recap: 2 servings of veggies with dinner: 5/7 I'm happy with this goal - it definitely succeeded in making me eat more nutritious food that otherwise would have been replaced with carbs, most likely. I'm going to repeat it again this week, and aim for 7/7. Plus bonus points for higher veggie content in other meals too. If that goes well, we'll add on another nutritional baby step in week 3. Workouts: 2/3 technically. However, I was SO much more active this past week than I have been lately, what with yard work and disc golf. Over
  12. Weekend recap: Veggies with dinner: No on Saturday, Yes on Sunday No workouts 8600 steps on Sat, 5400 on Sunday. So on Saturday we went to go test out a proposed layout for a new disc golf course that is getting installed. It's only like 20 minutes from our house, and it is going to be great one it's in! They're just starting with 9 holes but there's a plan for 18, although the back 9 is going to require a decent amount of labour to create as it's pretty grown-in. Still. Awesome. Also got WAY too much sun, and ba
  13. I weep for you - brassicas are life. Solid plan though, moving towards higher nutrition without aggravating your insides. Is it just peppers that are bugging you lately, or is it all nightshades? At least squash and leafy greens exist! 😬
  14. Gaaaaah I typed up a whole big update and LOST it before I posted Am sad. And not willing to redo it. Summary: Yesterday was good. 11000 steps. Disc golf was good. More disc golf this morning. Yardwork later. Greenhouse tomorrow with sister. Sushi was delicious. And so inexpensive. Bloating is down! Diet improvements make happy body even without perfection. The end.
  15. I did! And it was great. Well, I didn't play great, but it was lovely out and we had a good time.
