  5. Good job on the long run. I hope you feel better! I'm glad I'm not alone in going off track sometimes. It is just like life swallows me up! Everyone wants stuff, there are certain things that NEED to get done.. and my health just goes on the back-burner. It's just gonna happen sometimes. Its good to hear that your work-out went better than expected! just make sure you take it slow and listen to your body so you don't hurt yourself. As for me I'm doing much much better. I've re-focused. I started by breaking everything down into priorities and beginning to tackle them one by one. In my

  7. Hey Everyone!! I've kind of been falling away from my challenge. I'm pretty bummed about it. I know at some point I just have to DO IT!! I have to say no to eating too much or the wrong things and yes to exercise.. but I have reached a motivational slump. I feel like I don't have time for everything.. cleaning, keeping track of bills and papers, playing with my daughter, cooking, shopping. I often wind up prioritizing and getting what I can done, but recently I've been having a ton of trouble focusing. I'll be doing one task and then my brain jumps to another and another. I wind up with 3
  8. AMEN!! That has helped me a ton... some perspective. I have the tendency to work and work and work. My husband complains because I can barely watch a tv show.. and even when I am I'm folding laundry or doing the budget or SOMETHING. I can work myself up even when I'm purposefully relaxing because I'm thinking about all the stuff I'm not doing that I "should" be doing. The reality is that spending time with my daughter or husband is more enjoyable and more important than dishes. I've learned to let stuff like that go as much as possible without being officially gross. So I have a happy marria
  9. WEEK THREE RECAP Eat at least four servings of either fruit or veggie a day. (CON +3) Got 5 out of 7 days this week. Week 3- 71.4% Track everything I put in my mouth as follows: 7 days on, 9/23 off 8 days on, 10/2 off 9 days on, 10/12 off 10 days on, 10/23 off (WIS +2, CHA +2) I am seriously off my "days off" schedule. Now I'm on vacation and I'm just fighting to track period.. so off days are just out until I can get a string of some good days together. Did 5 out of 7 days. Week 2 - 71.4 Average for this goal - 71.4 2 sessions push-ups/crunches/plank and 2 sessions of either
  10. Hey Joltzzz!! I hope you are still at your challenge!! Even if you aren't today is a new day! I'd love to hear about it either way =D
  11. You are going to tell me how you cooked that kale... because the only way I like to eat kale is in creamy sausage soup, lol. I'd love to figure out a yummy way to get that nutrition dense stuff down. Sorry for your slump =( Something I like to remember is that feelings don't determine truth. Even if you emotionally don't feel like going to sleep the truth is that you need to or it will throw you completely off. I've had sleep troubles of my own. Sorry since I know they suck BAD. I'll be glad to hear how your goals go.. especially the playing with your kids thing!! I think you are so brave
  12. WORD!!!! Preach!!! When I was doing that I wound up cutting work-outs which left me feeling pretty crappy and I gained weight. Kudos on keeping work-outs in the mix. Good job not being a cliche. and... 100 push-ups!! Whaaaat? Amazing! Your arms must have felt like jelly.. and in less than 7 minutes!!!? I did 40 the other day and felt like I was going to pass out from excitement. Keep it up!! You are so strong! I hope driving school, regular school, work and working out go well this week.
  13. Omgoodness!!!! I love his Kakashi outfit!!!! *awesome* I'm glad you wound up having a good time even though the co-play seemed to be a bust, but you live and you learn.
  14. Hey!! I think 4 out of 7 days without sweets is AMAZING!! I have a major sweet tooth, but I can see how the percentage would be discouraging.. and the tendancy to just chuck the whole day after one slip up can be devestating. Good call on planning for the next challenge instead of changing now. You have talked about your tendancy to get bored and program-hop. Sticking with it now will help you determine how to go forward later?? At least that is what I'm thinking. Keep up the good work!! You seriously, really rock. Also, put your alarm clock across the room so you don't hit snooze. Ho
  15. Just wanted to give you guys an update on ME. I'm super duper pumped since I actually did 15 push-ups in a row Sunday!! 40 total!! That is a PR for me. Also, I think I have tennis elbow from it, lol. Don't know how that is possible, but my tendons were pretty painful when I tried again today. Also.. I'm at my in-laws place which is hella-awesome! I totally love them (I know I am super duper blessed). The big issue for me this week is food temptations. They eat out very often, and even the food cooked tonight was not too great. Lots of delicious southern comfort food.. serious mac and cheese,
