  1. Or shakshuka. Not actually fast, not much of a meal. (Wow, she's really picky...)
  2. THAT DONT INCLUDE CHICKEN BREAST, STEAK, OR ZOODLES. Not that there's anything wrong with those things, but Holy Pinterest, I need some variety. And walking around money.
  3. Whoops I crashed early yesterday. Haven't been sleeping all too well. I should honestly turn in about 20 minutes ago. 1. Yoga/PT 5 times a week Did basic PT with red bands. 2. Food journal in Cronometer (gotta fit that dress!) daily Coffee with cream, pancakes made from King Arthur's gluten free mix and blueberries, butter, maple syrup, orange juice, 2 sliced bacon, 2 small potatoes, 3 eggs, (that was separate breakfast and lunch not the world's biggest breakfast) salad with cranberries, pecans, blue cheese, steak, baked potato. A little high at 2145, but yesterday was 1708. 3. Floss! daily Will be done before bed.
  4. This is on topic I swear. On Netflix there is a show called the Indian Detective. I'm only on episode 3, but it's grown on me, kinda like a nail fungus (you'll get that by episode 2). It takes place partially in India, and his family is constantly drinking chai. I really want some chai. The show is worth a look.
  5. 1. Yoga/PT 5 times a week Didn't do yoga, but the dog and I did all the parallel stairs in the neighborhood. Obviously not fast because this was remedial don't pull mom down the stairs training. Did basic PT with red bands. 2. Food journal in Cronometer (gotta fit that dress!) daily Coffee with cream, leftover homemade pear cobbler, leftover beef stew and mash, homemade crab cakes eggs bennie, a double margarita. All gluten free. Way way over calories at 2506kcal. Oops. That's the trouble with alcohol. It's expensive, calorie rich, and I don't even get a buzz from doubles. Anyone know some good virgin mixed drinks? This is a waste. 3. Floss! daily Will be done before bed. Promise. Goodnight, druids. Current achievements: 1. Yoga/PT: 1/20 2. Food: 2/28 3. Floss: 2/28
  6. That's actually a really good idea, I think, starting with morning routines. Kind of like how diet coaches tell you to start with breakfast or dinner or whatever meal. Do you think you'd prefer a hot breakfast? They tend to keep hunger away longer. For a paleo option, crustless quiches keep well and can be filled with vegetables. We watched The Producers (both versions) recently, so I've had Springtime for Hitler stuck in my head for days. I don't know whether to feel like a horrible person or not.
  7. Hello, I'm hanging out with the druids this challenge. I've thought about it before, and due to the nature of life at the moment, I decided to do it. January was not nice to me. I like tea. Black, strong, with a spoon of cream?
  8. I also write only for myself. I used to share more, and I still do with close friends, but thinking about publishing was making me change how and why I wrote what I wrote. Not caring about anyone else reading has really helped, which is important, because I use that story as a soundboard for myself. It's nice to have somewhere to go that is guaranteed private.
  9. 1. Yoga/PT 5 times a week WILL be done after the fiancé goes to sleep. Because its 82F in here and I can't sweat in peace around him. Not that I'm complaining about a single part of that situation. Didn't get done after all. But I did get to bed on time. I think for stress's sake, I'll allow myself to make up on the weekend. That way I still get the PT and I only have two days of weekend to mess up. If I don't do it then, there isn't going to be another makeup. 2. Food journal in Cronometer (gotta fit that dress!) daily Coffee with cream, leftover homemade pear cobbler, leftover homemade (supposed to be crispy but we tried a new bread that doesn't make bread crumbs well at all) chicken sandwiches, homemade potato salad with too much (if there ever could be such a thing) herb oil based dressing, homemade beef stew, mashed potatoes, wine. All gluten free. A less colorful menu, minus the potato salad and stew, and over my calorie budget at 2312kcal, though I was hungry, which isn't a common feeling for my severely messed up digestive tract. I'll call it okay. 3. Floss! daily Will report in the morning. I did do this one. Goodnight, Druids. Current achievements: 1. Yoga: 0/20 2. Food: 1/28 3. Floss: 1/28
  10. I must admit, my only previous experience with druids has been wannabe high school "majickaal whitches," stoners, and game-breaking wild shape abuse. So no yoga there either lol.
  11. Oh no, I didn't realize how old THIS thread was. 0_0
  12. I've worked 12 hour shifts, but that is just madness. And teaching? Much respect for your hard work! You definitely deserve better health. When I went to work a shift, I ate lunch and dinner there. I have a couple suggestions, most in the "bulk cooking" style. Typical bulk cooking is easy, but variety will keep you sane and more likely to stick with it. I would actually prep breakfast on the weekends too, because while work was 12 hour shifts, work actually started 3 hours before that. Most weeks I made crustless quiche, because I rarely got bored of different fillings. You could do something similar for one of your meals. They keep really well and don't need a microwave. I'm assuming because you're working two jobs, budget is an issue, and quick cooking meals like steak and fish are often a budget drain. They can also suffer from a long wait time before eating, making that hot burger look really good. Luckily, traditional foods of the poor, like ratatouille, keep just fine in a good thermos. I love my pressure cooker now, but working shift I used a slow cooker, and that may be easier and more suited to a super busy lifestyle. For variety, each week switch between stew-type meals and roast-type meals. Some of my favorites are beef stew and pulled pork. Azukmul gro-Dragnar just posted a recipe for chicken, sausage, and lentil stew that looks amazing. So by now, you have two great budget friendly recipes going, hypothetically, in the oven and slow cooker. Another super easy way to add variety is different sides. Raw veg is great because it requires no prep, or just a knife and cutting board. Starchy sides can really change the way a meal eats. Beef stew is great with potatoes or rice, and pulled pork can be made into sandwiches or mixed with marinara and pasta for something completely different. With funds saved, oven going, slow cooker going, and starchy sides boiling, you should have just enough for some good steaks or nice salmon on the other half of the stovetop. I like to prep these in ways that don't get overcooked by reheating and are tasty to eat cold. If you like Chipotle, rice bowls are one of my favorites. No cook ideas can be more than snacks or sides. I used to love the Starbucks box things. I can't even remember what they were called, but they're way cheaper and tastier if you make them yourself. They're a great way to use canned salmon, cheese, and other cheap, nutritionally high value foods. That sounds like a lot, but start small with a few meals: crustless quiche, pulled pork, salad or slaw, and salmon salad. Make sandwiches from half the pulled pork, and mix the other with a jar of store-bought marinara and pasta cooked that morning. The sandwiches and salmon salad box will keep in a lunchbox with an ice pack, and the pasta will be fine in a thermos if thoroughly heated that morning. You can do it!
  13. Haha, I was wondering what one of my oooold posts was doing on the front page! Still, good suggestions and still an unresolved issue in our house. I love broccoli raab. So superior to regular broccoli.
  14. Oh man, this looks good. I had meatloaf for breakfast and didn't even bother to put an egg on it first. No judgment here.
  15. The beginning of this year has been rough. We moved to North Carolina, which is not a nice place to live. It has work and schools (an hour drive away), so there's that. Hopefully I can make the end a lot better, because I'm getting married in October! I'm not certain that I do a lot of Druidy stuff, but I plan on using yoga to attempt to rehab my shoulder. It's not that physical therapy doesn't work. I'm going to school to be a therapist, so I obviously believe in it. However, the VA will only pay for a couple months of therapy, and it takes more time that that to even get an appointment. Last time I went in thinking that it would be a final step to getting well, but we found some pretty severe inflammation in the joint, so it was back to square. I let moving totally disrupt my workouts, so yet again, I have to start over. I'm hoping that yoga will help with mobility and strength in a more gentle way than pushups. 1. Yoga/PT 5 times a week 2. Food journal in Cronometer (gotta fit that dress!) daily 3. Floss! daily
