  1. Thanks, I appreciate the concern.
  2. Eilyd: thanks for the advice. I'm keeping it low b/c I need to lose weight. As I find a happy carb/weight loss ratio, I'll increase carbs. The more I work out, the more carbs I can have. That's one reason I'm here on this site! I definitely eat my veggies, just not fruit for now. I don't eat potatoes, sweet potatoes or other high carb veggies, but there are still plenty to choose from!
  3. Check garage sales and Craig's list (if you have it where you are). People are always getting rid of weights. You might even get them for free. They may not be pretty, but as long as they are functional, you'll be fine.
  4. Ha! Enjoy the pain. I bought a cordless hedge trimmer and went to work "Rambo style" on the front hedges and trees on Sunday. I was soooo sore on Monday! I had fun doing the trimming, but oh man, that was a good workout! I kept telling myself on Monday that it was a Good Pain. I'm in the same boat as you are as far as fitness level. Hopefully we'll be badass when the 6 weeks are up! Keep up the good work!
  5. Good idea about using the upstairs to cool the downstairs! The upstairs unit is newer also and more efficient. I think the downstairs unit is an antique. It looks like it was put in when the house was built in 1963. Did they even have AC in 1963?
  6. Meditation is actually going very well. I had doubts about doing it in the AM, but it helps get me focused. I thought I might just go back to sleep if I closed my eyes! As for getting stronger, I'm going to try to do the lunges and squats in my office (where I can close the door!). I have a desk job, so stopping every now and then to exercise should be very good for me and my concentration. I realize I should be doing it all at once, but for now just doing it is okay. I might start taking walks in the morning when my work schedule allows. I haven't started on cleaning out that room yet. It is a big room and very intimidating! The weather is going to get very hot soon and I'll only have an opportunity to clean it in the mornings before work or the weekend mornings. I'm trying to save money and not turn on the AC upstairs (separate units for up and down). Six weeks is not a long time and I need to get going on this.
  7. Your kitten is disturbing. Feed it, water it, do something for the poor thing.
  8. I'm shocked! You "have a mouth"? I'm new to this site (like today) and I already think this is funny! Yes, I like sarcasm too!
  9. Awesome! Actually, I meant to quote the original comment about clocking the guy, but I agree with your comment as well!
  10. Yes, I totally agree with this. Don't make yourself a victim by shutting down one of your primary survival senses.
  11. Sounds like just the ticket! Good luck! I know when I started seriously drinking (water) I felt a lot better. It becomes a habit very quickly. Keep a water bottle with you as much as possible. You'd be surprised how often you'll drink it if it is right in front of you.
  12. I'm in. It is part of my June challenge goals. I'm shooting for 10 minutes/day. Probably 5 in the AM and 5 in the PM. "peace and frogs"..... excellent!
