  1. I'm a busty runner and I have found that the Shock Absorber brand works really well. My favorites are this one: http://www.amazon.com/Shock-Absorber-Womens-Sports-Support/dp/B000XKJVAC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1403276654&sr=8-2&keywords=shock+absorber and this one: http://www.amazon.com/Shock-Absorber-Womens-Ultimate-Sports/dp/B00368CL3M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403276654&sr=8-1&keywords=shock+absorber
  2. Sorry about the ankle! It sounds like your revamped goals will help a lot. I am so impressed with your weight loss! 7 pounds in 7 days? Amazing!
  3. Awesome job on the first week! Sounds like your willpower is in top form.
  4. Chatting with friends over wine is the best! Congratulations on a successful first week of the challenge and best of luck with your sleep goals in the coming week!
  5. 90 minute 8.5 mile run this morning! The week is off to a great start!
  6. Kept it together for the weekend! Day 5: Spent a good part of the day lugging around 45 lb boxes. Running: None Stretching: 10 minutes, 2 points Food Tracking: All, 2 points Cleaning: None Day 6: Running: None Stretching: None (whoops!) Food Tracking: All, 2 points Cleaning: 10 minutes, 2 points Day 7: Running: None, but I did get 3 hours of swing dancing in! Great workout. Stretching: Some, but not enough to count Food Tracking: All, 2 points Cleaning: None Today my goal is to spend a good chunk of time cleaning and stretching and get out for a long run. We start bringing in fruit on Wednesday, so that's when things will really get crazy! So for the first week, my grades are as follows: Running: 10 points, B. I got out for my one run, but I could do more. On the other hand, I did get some other exercise in, so it wasn't a total wash. Stretching: 8 points, D+. I need to up my game on this one Food Tracking: 14 points, A+. I have been really good about tracking everything. Cleaning: 11 points, D. Again, need to up my game. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up on everything today!
  7. Awesome news on the jeans!!! Congratulations! You are rocking this challenge. Way to be.
  8. I could have sworn I replied to this a couple of days ago! Whoops. My first goal is food tracking. I will not fail. Every meal will be faithfully recorded. I keep my phone charged so I have no excuse for logging in to myfitnesspal and writing it down. No missed snacks. The second is stretching. I will get in at least 10 minutes a day. I may be tired, but I can lie with my legs propped up on a wall to stretch my hamstrings. I stretch while I'm doing other things. I am getting limber. So far so good!
  9. OK, reporting in: Day 4: Running: None (although I did run up a giant hill today for fun!) Stretching: 10 minutes, 2 points Food Tracking: All meals, 2 points Cleaning: 10 minutes, 2 points
  10. Great job on continuing with the good sleep habits! I think it's easy to be hard on ourselves even when we're doing well--kudos to you for recognizing that and keeping your goals SMART.
  11. It's frustrating when other people's plans impact yours, but great job on resisting all that temptation!
  12. So true! Thanks CactusWren! It can be tough, but the programs out there make it much easier. I didn't get a huge amount more done yesterday, but I started off today strong with 10 minutes of cleaning the kitchen! Food tracking is still going well. Day 3: Running: None (except for 5 minutes on the elliptical as a warm up) Stretching: 20 minutes, 4 points Food Tracking: All meals, 2 points Cleaning: None, whoops!
  13. Today has been good so far! Tracked all the food, got a gym session in (I know it's not part of the challenge, but deadlifting felt good!), stretched for 20 minutes, and I still have energy to get some housework in. I'm planning on jumping onto the mini challenge, but I have to figure out which two goals to focus on. I'm thinking the food tracking and stretching. Onward and upward!
  14. Thanks Nusuth! I'm trying to keep my goals SMART, for sure. I'm hoping to get another run in today, and maybe get a gym session in as well. I figured I'd report on the last two days, though, before I forgot: Day 1: Running: 45 minutes, 10 points Stretching: None Food Tracking: All meals, 2 points Cleaning: 25 minutes, 5 points Day 2: Running: None Stretching: None Food Tracking: All meals, 2 points Cleaning: 10 minutes: 2 points
