  1. Test test!   Hey girl  Seeing if this still works.


  2. I went to the gym! I have been enjoying my home space! I still have not made that damn lasagna... but I have also not eaten out, so this is a win! Yoga has not been attainable because I have been tooooooo sore from going to the gym on Monday. I also hurt my wrist warming up on the heavy bag, so anything bearing pressure on the wrist (like...everything) has been painful so I have been taking it easy. Should be able to do this tonight though! Lets see if I can prioritize going into the Christmas madness.
  3. *muah* I will catch up with you later my lovely!
  4. Hey Michi! Looks like you are tackling some big stuff this challenge. Good for you! I hear ya on family drama/challenges. I also suuuuuper here you on eating all the time when you are bored at home! My work situation has been slower then expected and I am at home more than I want/expect to be. I find myself... cleaning/tidying keeps me from snacking. But of course, that can get out of hand as well and turn into a maladaptive coping mechanism too... but so far its working for me I think everybody gains a bit of weight during winter... keeps us warm, right?? Take care and hope you fi
  5. Rock climbing went really well! Actually didn't hurt my feet at all. Made me feel very...very out of shape, but didn't hurt my feet! I think actually because the shoes are so constricting that its pretty ideal because it does not put any stress on your foot tendons because the shoes are so tight. Its a fantastic sport and I highly recommend trying it out if you are at all interested. I never actually got around to making the lasagna because I got taken with this southwestern black bean salad that I made with avocado and quinoa. Turned out delicious! I also made a huuuuuug
  6. Hey everybody! So I have been home for almost 2 weeks and it has been a whirlwind! Its nice to feel missed, but I am dizzy from having so many social engagements! I have been eating vegetarian + fish approximately 70% I would guess. I have not been nearly as loyal to calorie tracking or cooking as I wanted to, manly because I have been so busy being social. I should have expected a certain level of craziness after getting home from 2 months away. And now I am jumping right into Christmas craziness, but I am settling in and determined to make good things happen! Accomp
  7. Been a while, but I am back! 


  8. Hello adventurers, This is my first challenge in a while and I am happy to be coming back! In this challenge I am going to be recovering physically from walking the Camino de Santiago, which was amazing but left me with pretty severe tendinitis in both feet. I would love to list off all the incredible activities I am going to do, but when standing and walking are limited, it's tricky! So, we will focus on diet! And the needs work so this is good. 1) Embrace the veggie. Eat vegetarian food more. Week 1- 2 days, Week 2- 3 days, Week 3- 4 days, Week 4- 5 days.
  9. Ooookay week 3 day 7 summary. The week started out strong, but I got swamped so need to collect myself. Had another weekend crazy filled with social stuff. I'm so tired! This little introvert needs a break! And I've got 3 birthday parties next weekend! *sounds of strangling*. I may ditch everyone and high tail it outta here.... 1) we ran out of batched breakfast which was a challenge. I did do breakfast cookies which turned out more successful then I even hoped, so I think a B+. We have to get going on his we batches today but I think we are both struggling from not enough d
  10. I have been thinking about applying to a position in the hospital but there are very few jobs right now, and none for my specialty. I have to think on it a bit. But you are definitely right, there are less dramatic, more realistic options for change! I wouldn't say I can frequently. I am a life-time devoted dabbler. I see something, I hunk it's cool, so I want to try it out. A close friend of mine got me in to a community garden and we had a metric crap tonne of tomatoes and I didn't want them to go to waste, so I figured it was time to dabble in canning and I made salsa. It was
  11. Week 3 Day 3 Yesterday I had a bit of an anxiety crisis and a vocational/future plans crisis. I'm a nurse in home care and the industry is really messed up and negative. I am just really sick of dealing with the negativity. I've decided I want to run away from nursing to be a yoga instructor. Nice and realistic, right? Lol. Anyway, yesterday was good. 1) all meals were from batches. Today I will have to make a new lunch batch, and 7FG will be on breakfast batching. My dinner rice and beans crock pot turned out really good. I used the last of the salsa I canned
  12. *high five fellow declutterer* looks like things are going well so far in your challenge!
  13. In Canada we are constantly switching back and forth. I find I'm pretty ambidextrous except for temperatures. I can't do F. Anyway, 1 g/lb of lean body mass is what have heard from the nerds I know who lift and stuff, or 1 gm/kg of total body mass. I am huuuge into pulses right now. So cheap, so nutritious, so tasty, and such variety! I've done a big batch of some kind of pulse salad at the beginning of each week. They keep nicely, and it makes it convenient. I've got this lentil, black bean chickpea number on the go right now. Bit of kale, cranberries, and an appl
  14. The happiness hang-over, or nerdsads. i miss you already! 7FG has been asleep since 7pm. He was chipper when I picked him up from work, then zonked after dinner. Also, I did not know you never have had Vietnamese food before. How exciting! Next time we are doing Indian for sure. It might have to be a tradition now that we find a new ethnic food every time you come. Which means you have to keep coming back also, you're kicking ass and taking names. I love it!
  15. I miiiiiiiiss you. And 7FG is beside me snoring, but I'm sure he misses you too!
