  1. I'm finishing up a course on HTML/CSS and then planning to start on PHP and SQL. My husband is a Scuba instructor and we have discovered that we really aren't happy with the student databases available currently. I work with database administration at the hospital I work at and am hoping that with a little programming experience I might be able to create something a little more usable for us (and hopefully other instructors as well).
  2. Wow, so I apparently underestimated the amount of posting that would be going on in a creative group, lol. I have limited time/access to the computer over the weekends so most of my posts will be during the week. I think the side challenge of minutes sounds great! I updated our group spreadsheet to include a totals page for our weekly minutes. Here's the link again in case anyone missed it the first time around I will be tracking my minutes of blog writing (part of my main quest) and also minutes learning how to code. I know that doesn't sound very creative, but I figure the eventual outco
  3. Your description made me want to travel to San Francisco. You should get into marketing, if you aren't already lol.
  4. Why is it that we are all so obsessed with medieval times? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love me some epic fantasy, I just wonder why we have all decided that a world with no modern technology=fantasy and a world with technology=sci-fi.
  5. So basically, its just an easy way to see all of your progress from the challenge in one place, along with everyone else from the group. If you go to the main template (first sheet), right click on the tab and Duplicate it. Then you can update any of the fields with your personal information to help you keep track of your goals day-to-day. You can use it like a Battle Log or anything you want really, you don't have to use the template if it isn't in a format that you think fits your style. Does that help at all?
  6. Also, where exactly did you procure said saffron ice cream?
  7. daggart: Thanks so much! I think sometimes we appear more organized than we feel, but I think that's just the nature of the game. Lt_Laurel: that is really cool that you know someone who has actually done cruising for a while! At this point, we aren't sure how long we will want to do it for, but we figure that it is going to be an awesome experience regardless. A lot of people say that people either come out of it divorced or with a better relationship than they ever thought possible. That's what happens when you are with someone literally 24 hours a day in a very small space dealing with sit
  8. Alright everyone! Here is the link to the google ss. The first tab is the Template that you can choose to duplicate and then edit as you like. Also, feel free to create your own sheet if this one doesn't fit your goals as well as you like. Just make your tab and then label it with your NF name so we can all keep each other accountable.
  9. I'd be happy to get one together since I already have the template. I should have it posted by tomorrow morning at the latest.
  10. I almost did the same thing last night! I poured my son a small handful of mini m&ms and then proceeded to toss a handful into my mouth as well. Luckily, I realized what I had just done and literally spit them back out, lol. I don't even really like mini m&m's! CONSTANT VIGILANCE! Nice workout this morning!
  11. Question for the group: what does everyone do as far as tracking your progress through the challenge? The last group I was in (a bunch of people dropped out for this challenge) kept a Google drive shared spreadsheet to help us all be more accountable and see everyone's progress in one place to offer encouragement, etc. Is that something that anyone would be interested in, or does everyone just post on their individual thread and we follow it? Just wondering/learning how you guys keep in touch for motivation.
  12. Yay for lifting at 10pm! Most of my workouts are all body weight based, but I can definitely relate.
  13. So, I don't know your background enough to know if you are working towards being a concert pianist or something, but 12 hours of piano over 2 days seems like an enormous amount! If you enjoy it enough to do that, go for it, but just make sure you aren't burning yourself out on something you love.
  14. Wow, so day 1 showed me how hard my 2 junk food a week goal is going to be for me. Yesterday afternoon, I got an email saying "Chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies in the breakroom!" Even though cookies are basically my greatest weakness, I held out and did not go get one, though I almost broke down. Then last night, my 3 year old asked me for some mini m&m's which I poured him out a small handful. I proceeded to pour myself a small handful and toss it in my mouth...and then I spit it out lol. I don't even really like mini m&m's! It gave me a reality check on how often I've actuall
  15. Thanks! Its kind of funny because we have been planning and preparing for it for over 2 years and the beginning of October started our 1 year remaining countdown. We are super excited, but at the same time I have this huge urgency all of a sudden when I think about all of the things we want and need to accomplish before next October! Doing these challenges helps me breakdown some of those things into more manageable goals.
