  1. Congratulations! Now to avoid delicious Wendy's food whilst working...
  2. Ok so last few days Eats - Thursday I had a craving for peanut butter - and I failed my rule of no temptation in the house. So unfortunately had a few more teaspoons of that than I care to admit. Other than that, today was cheat day and I ate a ton of wicked food. Thank goodness tomorrow is back to normal. Yoga - the clothing thing has been bothering me. So I've done forward fold five times each day until I figure it out - goal for tomorrow Tarot - the moon, 5 wands and 2 pentacles. Water - steady 13 glasses per day Blog - planned second post and halfway there with newest sewing project. My husband took photos of me... They are truly awful. I'll add them tomorrow and make a great before and after pic at the end ^^ Also Chanda and doubleornothing - I'll do your readings soon!
  3. Ewwwww Also - that's great that you found that out! What is in the smoothie that makes you feel good? Eat more if that!
  4. I want to update tomorrow morning, but I have a question for y'all I wat to change my yoga goal. The problem is, clothing. I often wear jeans and so I can't actually do the stretches. But I don't want to commit to a certain time limit, or number of stretches or whatever Hmmm What would you do? Im thinking perhaps a short routine every morning like sun salutation perhaps? But then come up with my own specifically for back bends? Does anyone already know a good mini routine or have more skill and want to come up with one for me? Or point me in the direction of someone who can help? Thanks!
  5. One step at a time. Hang in there. Try replacing gluten for one meal a day and build on it. It's hard to change many things in one go - I'm sure the changes you have made will motivate you enough to be fully gluten free by the end of the challenge.
  6. Hi Robert! What kind of stretches and exercises do you have planned? How's your list coming along
  7. I like your veges and fruit goal... I'm going to steal that for next challenge!
  8. I like evenewbie's "keep breathing"
  9. Today was another good day. I posted a new blog post at http://forlorelei.wordpress.com/. Made some progress on that outfit too I did the bridge pose5 times. I think I'm gonna have to aim for more than once a day - too easy! My tarot card was another page. The page of swords. The two pages suggest that I may have an opportunity which requires using both my head and my heart. Nice nice. We will see how the rest of the 6 weeks pan out. Doubleornothing and Chanda - I will private message your readings tomorrow sometime. Let me know if you have a specific question or theme in mind.
  10. if you like a sweet tea, try sweetening with honey. it's pretty good and not as bad for you as plain old sugar.
  11. This is what I do. I decide where I need most work, and what I'm trying to get done in my life goals and assign fitness etc to the others.
  12. I like that you're building up each of your goals. That's a great idea. I might have to steal it for next challenge. How are you going so far?
  13. yay another breastfeeding mum with a water and yoga goal! My daughter is also 4 months old and I am a nanny for a family with 3 kids - 7, 12, 14. We like to have yoga competitions - who can hold chair pose for the longest?! who can plank for the longest? who can do a bridge? etc. I like that you made your goals nice and easy - that's what I've done too. never underestimate the power of a small win!
  14. I have that yoga problem too - keep smacking into things! I'm doing one yoga stretch a day to focus on - I tried 30mins too but that's waaaay too much to start with. I'm doing water too. good luck with your goals!
  15. Tarot can't ruin your day. I don't really believe in it. Well I have 2 minds about it. On the one hand I am rational - the cards have vague meanings and especially if I apply the meaning retroactively, then I'm going to look for connections. But on the other hand, I'm spiritually inclined. I like to believe in reincarnation and all things being connected. I've done cold readings and had people crying because I hit on some truth. With a one card reading it can be very general, but if you add more cards, their positioning makes it more specific. Too many coincidences sometimes. So I feel like the tarot can highlight aspects of situations that you weren't aware of. Often the card that represents the future, only represents it if nothing changes. And doing the reading will sometimes make a person change course. So... It's too complex to say a bad day will come of it. I can do a reading for you if you like - see for yourself
  16. Day 2 Cat and cow 0 times. Lol. I hate how my knees hurt on the hard wood floors. So I ended up doing downward dog 5 times. Today I'm going to have a cushion around for cat cow. I am super proud of myself- went out for wok with the family, and I didn't over eat, and I only ate the vege and meat dishes. And a big plate of fruit for desert. I didn't even want to eat all the bad stuff! And I only drank water. 10 glasses. I don't know really how my tarot card manifested itself. I did feel like I didn't want to be at a party - just home in bed. It's hard to go out by train with a baby. Today I'm working on a blogpost and I'm making something super cute for my little girl! From my own pattern, which I intend to sell online.
  17. I think it's smart to break it down. Never underestimate the power of small wins
  18. Good going so far. One step at a time. Keep it up!
  19. Lol neither! I've never had this problem... But my daughter does.
  20. Lol neither! I've never had this problem... But my daughter does.
  21. KB21 - you're going to NZ? awesome! I'm from there. let me know if you need some tips - I've travelled all over the north island especially
  22. I'm not too worried about the peeing, Unikram I'm more focused on a liquid coming out of a different orrifice (nipples hehe) And evenewbie - I feel that the tarot is really simple, and kind of combined with the yoga. Maybe even the water, yoga and card go together - the same action (drink, stretch, think) regularly through out the day. which reminds me *get's a drink of water* I'll edit my main post with starting measurements tonight. So far so good - my first day was even vegetarian! I ate only fruit and vegetables and eggs the whole day. It feels amazing to eat like this. Yesterday I did half moon pose. (the one where you have both arms raised then bend at the waist each direction.... not this...) and I did it 5 times. I also drank 15 glasses of water. My tarot card was the page of cups - this card symbolises opportunities for love. My husband had been away for a long weekend with the guys - I missed him! I felt very loving to him when he got home haha. ... Today's card is V swords - selfishness and discord... well, I'm going to a family dinner tonight so that doesn't bode well. The point of tarot is to be aware of the card's influence, not necessarily to predict the future. Today's yoga stretch is going to build up exercises for a backwards walkover. I'm going to do the cat and cow poses to work up some flexibility in my spine. I've noticed so much improvement in my back since I've been doing yoga again. we'll see how the rest of the week goes! so far so good.
