  1. Hi! I'm a long-time-lurker and occasional-poster who's back again. I'm in my early twenties, female, and just started my first job out of college. I have a complicated relationship with food and fitness that I hope to start healing. Backstory I had (have? do these things ever really go away?) an eating disorder that started when I was in high school. I would go through cycles of binging and restricting. My mom was constantly dieting when I was young, so I was exposed to a lot of different theories. I first decided to try eating Paleo when I was in middle school. I did it becau

    Tigera's Reboot

    I'm a little late to the party, but better late than never! My goals: 1) Track everything I eat. I'll use the app YouFood to take pictures of everything. (30 XP) 2) Don't eat anything with sugar in it after 7pm (one slip allowed per week). This is to combat my tendency for emotional binges late at night. (30 XP) 3) Walk 70,000 steps per week. (30 XP) 4) I'm trying to develop my sense of style, as I've noticed that getting fully dressed is like putting on a suit of armor--it makes me feel more confident and more attractive. So at least four days a week, I want to get

    My Quest

    Whoo go engineering! I'm in CompE, and I feel ya about it being tough but totally rewarding. Agreed on the emotional eating. It's a thing that happens, and it can be really tough to kick. Good luck with that and the rest of your goals!!
  5. YAS ME is beautiful, this makes me so happy Your updates are also highly amusing, I'm enjoying reading them. Good luck with the goals!
  6. Week Two, Tuesday Steps: 11,432 Exercise: No, rest day. But I did go on a long walk when I reached that point while studying where my eyes were about to fall out of my head and roll over to one of the HOD majors who are already done with exams Food: Binge: No Restrict: No Meals eaten: 3 Breakfast: 2 Lunch: 2 Dinner: 2 Happiness: 1. It was a good day, despite the fact that I spent the whole day studying Calc. I got a lot done, and I think I'll be in fine shape to get what I need to on the exam. My other exams are another st
  7. Week One, Sunday Steps: 5177 Exercise: Nope! Rest day Food: Binge: Yes Restrict: No Meals eaten: 3 Breakfast: 2 Lunch: 2 Dinner: 1 Happiness: 0.6 Week One Summary Not much to summarize since I came into the challenge late. This "week" was two days long. But, anyway. Average steps: 8,516. I counted the steps my phone had recorded from earlier in the week, which is why this isn't an impossible number. It's not too bad, but I definitely want to do better in Week Two! Exercise: Once in the two days. Food:
  8. OMFG I love this. It goes perfectly with my challenge, too. I'm in 1) I'm smart. That's a thing I've always been confident in, probably because it's more cut-and-dried, more provable than other aspects of life. If I put in the effort to learn something, I can do so very effectively.
  9. Hi Fearkiller! I'm sorry your life hasn't been going in a direction that you want. I've been seeing a therapist for a while about depression and some other issues, so I get at least part of where you're coming from. The thing that's helped me a lot is making an effort to look at the things in my life without making a judgement call about them. Like acknowledging that I have exams coming up soon that I'm not fully prepared for, without berating myself for not preparing better. Or figuring out what I need to get done, but living in the moment and doing whatever I can do. I love that you q
  10. Week One, Saturday Steps: 5,735. Not many, but I was sitting around studying most of the day. The average for the whole week should still turn out well though, I think. Exercise: Yes! I finished the Recruit workout. It went well, and I am now very much sore. Not in a bad way though. It's good. I missed this. Food: Binge: No Restrict: No Meals eaten: 2 Lunch: 2 (balanced) Dinner: 2 (balanced) Happiness: I'd give the day a 0.45 (mostly neutral, maybe a little bad). The daytime was fully neutral but when it got late it kinda sucked. I couldn't f
  11. Aight, this week's mini-challenge! S = Specific M = Measurable A = Attainable/Achievable R = Realistic/Reasonable T = Timeous Here are some questions to put your goals to the test: 1. Is your overall quest achievable (over a short or long period of time)? Is it reasonable? Yes! Absolutely, it is achievable and reasonable. At least, it better be. The world would be a pretty sad place if happiness isn’t achievable/reasonable 2. Do your 3 quests all build towards your main quest in little ways, or are you taking on too much? Do your quests have sub-quests or is it just one th
  12. Battle With a Demon Vs. Prologue: The Battle Begins Tigera stumbled into Div's office, clumsily shutting the door as she dropped her bag on the floor. "I think I'm losing," Tigera said without preamble. "It's getting stronger, I can tell." Ed the Demon smiled sadly at the sorceress-in-training. It, of course, had smoothly slid through the door before Tigera managed to close it. "Of course you're losing. I mean, look at you. How could you ever think you had a chance?" Div rose from behind her desk, glaring at Ed. "OUT," she said, waving her hand. The demon scowl
  13. Oh, if I'm with anyone other than the family I'm awful about eating well. Peer pressure, or whatever you want to call it. But my family already knows how weird I am, so it's okay if I show it DAY THREE continued I ended up getting green beans, and then barely eating them. Too mushy And as for the mousse... I finished it and ate some, but it was still too bitter for me even with the ridiculous amount of stevia I put in it. My mom liked it, though, and that's what's important, since it's her birthday I'm also not going to be able to make it to class tonight Too much homework and ot
  14. DAY TWO This is late. Meh. I woke up early, stretched, and did slowkicks. That was it for exercise *winces* but I ate right, so that's good(: DAY THREE (so far) Woke up early. Stretching, slow kicks, knee pushups, wall pushups, planks. Food: I ate breakfast today (no IF) because Mom made good bacon. As in, the bacon we've got that's from a local Amish farmer. As wonderful as normal bacon is, that stuff is infinitely better. Lunch was the usual: eggs, ham, American and cream cheese, broccoli. Dinner hasn't happened yet, but hopefully it'll go well. We're going out for Mom's birthd
  15. IF is definitely awesome(: Yeah, I Googled it too and that's the same thing that I found. I've been trying to drink more water, but it's still something I have trouble with. Maybe that'll be one of my missions next challenge I'll definitely check out your numbers. Thanks!!
