  1. I have one month before I start my job as a lawyer at a big firm. The hours are going to be tough and unpredictable, so I want to do my best to get myself really healthy and develop better habits before I begin. My overall aim for this (belated) challenge is to work on habit building so I can feel my best and most confident when I wake up on September 8 and leave for the office. FOOD I have been following a mostly paleo diet for the past four years. Sometimes I eat more non-gluten-containing grains than others, and I'm often flexible about legumes and frankenfood ingredients, but I generally k
  2. Hi everyone! I know the challenge is already underway, but it's never too late to start (or restart) a fitness journey, right? So I've decided to join the fun as I get back into shape after the bar and before beginning work at my firm. Hanging out with the Rangers this challenge because I am trying to work strength and metcon at the same time and to cut the body fat that has been creeping on throughout law school. Goals to come once I think of them.

  5. I tried Natural Calm but I woke up with weird neck pain, and I saw some people online mention they had that side effect, so I got a little freaked out.
  6. I've fallen off a bit with posting and with the challenge. Once I fail to post for a few days, I get anxious thinking about trying to remember everything I did, which further discourages posting. So rather than try to catch up, I'm just going to forgive myself and move forward. I've been going to sleep later and later and sleeping increasingly restlessly, so I'm going to make that my number-one priority going forward. I've also been avoiding lifting for a few days because I feel weak, which is just so unlike me and I think stems from sleep deprivation. Finally, I've struggled with schoolwork
