  3. Ah well. You just got to pick up where you left up and keep going. Also, it's an opportunity to problem solve. What about this event caused you to cheat on your diet, and how will you prevent it?
  4. Great job on your first week!

  7. Let's see here... goals. Hmmm Currently at 20.4 miles for the week. Not too bad! Various other things to tick down, but that's my main accomplishment. Yay!
  8. One week! I was thinking of staying a bit longer for personal time, but I think one week away from home is currently my max.
  9. Let's see here, no meat, no carb, no money. Hmmmm.... Eggs, tofu, boca burgers, tempeh. Sure you've thought of all of those, but anyway. This is going to sound weird, but trust me... One cup plain yogurt, one packet water flavoring (like crystal light). IT's AWESOME.
  10. I am inexperienced with PVP forum, so I don't know for sure. One nice thing about starting a new thread every challenge is that it's easier for new people to jump in. I also like changing the theme. Secret garden this time All of that said, PVP could be good...
  11. That's mad cool! Glad to have you around. I'm pretty good around Japanese customs, but may pick your brain about those sometime. More concerned about the cultural differences than the language barrier, if that makes sense.
  12. You have so much win going on here! Sorry about the creeps, headphones work well for me... Your nomadism was cool while it lasted, but glad you found a home. Good luck with your goals!
  13. Ganbatte ne! Sounds cool. How long have you been studying Japanese? Where are you from?
  14. Hah! Okay, definitely will do. I have to go there for work in June, so I have about 3 months to learn a few essential phrases. Also, I need to figure out what your gif means.
  15. This is an awesome goal!!! Also, I am so jealous of you. I love his writing. All the more incentive to learn Japanese...
  16. To enter the Garden answer these questions so we know what your all about! 1. What food/drink are you going to eliminate/control? And Why (What does it do to you mentally? Physically? etc.)? Removing carbs! Trying to eat "lazy keto." 2. What challenges do you think you'll face eliminating the food? Carb cravings 3. How are you planning to avoid these foods/drink? Work out a lot! That seems to take all hunger away. Also planning on doing some batch cooking, so I have plenty of on-diet foods around. 4. What is it that you want to get out of this challenge? In terms of food, I'd like to maintain greater self control.
  17. I see... So you do one continuous thread? That is super rebellious.
  18. @Koaladle You have just described my life
  19. Hmmm, fidget cube. I looked that up. The commercial is hilarious. Does it really work for you?
  20. Goals look good this challenge, Tea time. Glad to have you back!!
  21. Hey! Good luck with your goals! Looks like a lot of great self care.
  22. Hmmm... The scouts feel a bit quiet. Quiet isn't bad, but is there anything we could be doing to get things riled up again?
