  1. After various respawns, all with a mixed bag of success, I'm deciding today is a good day to try again. I'll put the star in starting over… and over! So without further dallying, here is my challenge to go from Jedi Inductee to Jedi Apprentice Main Quest: Build the foundations towards healthy daily habits. 1) Reboot my Hero's Journey workouts! Every Jedi starts from scratch and often get scratched along the way. I have no excuse for not knowing what to do next. I left off on day 11 a week ago, so I'll start again on day 11. it's going to take both physical and mental fortitude to actuall
  2. Thanks Vibrantnotions! And I hope your first week went fabulously! Week 1 Progress! (Even though it's week 2. Shhhh!) Food: For the most part I'm pretty happy with food consumption. All of it, apart from my drink choices on Saturday and a half a cup of ice cream on Thursday, were healthy choices. I think next week I'll need to work on portions, but that's less of a battle than making the decision to eat an egg scramble over nachos! I also beat the binge monster yesterday by putting away a bag of pita chips I had bought. I NEVER put away a bag of chips once I started, and it didn't even cos
  3. Thanks! I got really, really lucky! And I can't help it, I felt a little bada** for being able to walk away with nothing but a bruised knee! Also, plot twist totally applies! Day 1 and 1/2 are great so far. No deviations, I'm under the calorie count, and I managed to resist the homemade cinnamon rolls and theater popcorn at work. Now to so some yoga, write, and I'll be done for the day! Because everyone needs more !!!'s in their day.
  4. I'm from the Tri-City area (Fremont, Newark, Union City)! I never realized there were so many rebels nearby!
  5. I have a quick accountibuddies question! I missed the first week of the challenge (oops!), and I was wondering if it's too late to sign up for an accountibuddies group? If not, how would I go about finding one?
  6. So I think I've been a bit distracted and totally missed the start date. Oops! But it was probably a good thing because I got hit by a car a week and a half ago, and my knee is still in recuperate mode. I normally run, and that has been out of the question for the moment. So I figure this is the perfect time to work on headstands, flexibility, and pull-ups. I've never done a pull-up before! Or a headstand for that matter. I equate the car accident with a set back in the hero's journey. Like the Fellowship losing Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings, the quest seemed more hopeless after Moria, bu
  7. Hey all! I'm currently trying to bounce back from a rough bout with food poisoning (bad fish), and this is the first time in my life I've ever been tempted to try some kind of detox diet for a few days (once I can hold down solid food). The only problem is I don't even know if that is a good idea, or if it is how to go about finding one that's safe. Any thoughts, fellow rebels? Thanks for stopping by!
  8. ***May Contain Game of Thrones Spoilers*** I'll try to keep them to a minimum. This is my second challenge, and the first one was all about building the will power to achieve my life and fitness goals. I'm one step closer to achieving my current quest. To me, the first challenge was equivalent to Daenerys Targaryen building up her confidence in book/season 1. That confidence and character development was challenged again and shaped throughout the second half of book/season 1, which culminated in the building of the huge pyre that ignited her dragon eggs. I'm seeking to begin building
  9. Ooo, I agree on the progress bar. That's neat! And my phone neglected to tell me there were responses here! Oops! I joined Aegon's Conquerors too, but after doing that, I thought about you guys. Want to just jump ship from the Starks to the Targaryens? Maybe in the third challenge we can take on the Lannisters. I haven't made a challenge post yet, even though I've been keeping up on it this week. The semester is now in full swing!
  10. Hey awesome people! Is anyone else doing the next 6-Week challenge? If yes, anyone still considering which accountibuddies team they want? I was thinking of starting one if a couple of you guys wanted to join in!
  11. Thank you for the responses, guys! notanartmajor: On most workout days when I was at home, I was struggling to eat up to 1500 calories in a day doing paleo, and I wasn't having the same kinds of struggles with energy and binging. Now that I'm eating in the dorms, that number probably fluctuates a lot more, so I'm starting to keep a food-journal on my best guestimation. I also use a protein powder in water after working out. Elastigirl: They dining hall is pretty good about offering rice, and I just recently found olive oil. (I know that olive oil is technically not paleo according to s
  12. Hey all! I'm not quite sure how to tackle this one, so I thought I'd turn to the collective wisdom of the message boards. Currently I'm living in the dorms and doing 1-hour workouts six times in a week while taking a full course load at college. It was during this last challenge that I've been trying to switch over to paleo; when I was cooking my own food I was doing well with both satiety and energy. However, since I've been back at the dorms I've been having trouble with energy and sticking to paleo. My dorms don't always have steamed veggies at lunch and dinner, and nearly everything
  13. Likewise, SpaghettiMonster! Thank you everyone here for the support and celebration during the ups and downs of the challenge! And thanks for making sure I'm accountable to all of you. Final Assessment! The last two weeks (since returning to school) have been a bit of a challenge to keep up with my budding habits. The dorm doesn't always have enough good paleo-like foods to let me eat them and stay full, unlike when I was cooking for myself. This was a little frustrating because then I'd end up giving up and diving into something warm during a meal or two, and that something warm is
  14. Final Assessment! The last two weeks (since returning to school) have been a bit of a challenge to keep up with my budding habits. The dorm doesn't always have enough good paleo-like foods to let me eat them and stay full, unlike when I was cooking for myself. This was a little frustrating because then I'd end up giving up and diving into something warm during a meal or two, and that something warm isn't always healthy by any standards, not just paleo. So, ugh. I'm still getting way stronger and faster, but I'm also gaining back a few of my body fat losses. Main Quest: Gain a healthier
  15. Hey everyone! I'm glad to see a few posts here! Okay, I was doing great(ish) for the first week back at the dorm cafeteria up until this weekend. Up until Friday it was flawless because they always had a tray of steamed vegetables that would fill up my plate (I try to only eat meat once a day, and that meat is lean); on Friday during lunch they didn't serve any steamed vegetables and instead had french fries and roasted potatoes. Their "vegetable" was a curry that was all sauce and a few diced carrots. Ugh. Instead of figuring out a good alternative, I ended up eating the oh so tempting
