  1. My long weekend was frowns in everything but exercise: I really didn't even try to exercise control over my eating, which is a usual problem for me on weekends. I need to come up with a strategy for next weekend. But today's a new day and a new week. I've got chili for lunches this week, and I'll be making a big batch of oatmeal tonight for breakfasts.

    I'm Back, Baby!

    Yet another returner! I like the vague goals. I've usually got a mix of specific and vague. Like right now, I've got a clear calorie goal (300-500 calorie deficit, no added sugar), but a vague exercise goal (do it and include strength training sometimes). Also, I think I need to copy the doctor's visit: I'm past due for one.
  3. I like the rewards goal. It doesn't work for me because I frequently end up getting myself the "reward" even if I fail. May you have better self control than I do!
  4. I got my first frowny face for yesterday. After dinner, I just started snacking. At first because I was still a little hungry, and then because I just had trouble stopping. I ended the day a hundred or two calories over maintenance, so not horrible, but enough that I need to start my streak over.
  5. Thanks! I want to end the challenge with the most colorful calendar I can.
  6. Sounds ambitious! I like the test run idea: with 5 or 6 months to go, you'll have plenty of time to add in the habits that get left behind this challenge.
  7. I've had 2 very good diet days in a row. On Monday I had a mini chocolate chip muffin (100 calories, 6 g sugar) because my breakfast was way too small, but that's the only junk I've had and it kept me from spending the 3 hours until lunch thinking about my coworker's chocolate filled candy jar. I've gone 2 full days without touching that chocolate, which has to be a personal record. I didn't do as much of a workout as I was supposed to yesterday: 10 minutes of stretching yoga followed by about 15 minutes of bodyweight. Should have been at least 30 minutes of more intensive strength
  8. I just need to make sure I've got barriers between myself and Impulse as often as possible. Good luck holding strong through the weekend!
  9. I haven't been here for a year, but I'm back for the sake of the challenge accountability. I want to focus on diet this time around. I've started picking some of my bad food habits back up, and since January I've regained a couple of the pounds I lost in 2016/2017. I want to lose another 15-20 pounds instead of gaining more. This challenge is going to focus on improving my eating habits and losing weight again. Specifically, I want to cut down on sugar and stop snacking between meals. I've been better about fitness than diet. I haven't really had much direction this y
  10. Woohoo! I'm another long-time absent person who's looking to get back to making progress, though my last challenge was May, 2017. Here's to exercising good judgement and making slow, consistent progress.
  11. Ooh, me too. I've kind of bounced around between guilds, but at heart, I'm an adventurous Scout. Or a scouteous Adventurer?
  12. I've biked 30 miles since Friday, run 6, and hiked about 3. Also done one and a half Simple and Sinister workouts. My longest nonstop bike ride is now 17 miles. My living room is actually as clean as I want it to be, but the bedroom is much worse. I had to clean in a hurry for my brother's visit because initially, we were all going to visit at my parents, but last minute that got changed to my apartment. 2 hours, and all the stuff I couldn't really deal with is now in bedroom. I've got a big pile of stuff that I'm not sure whether to keep or give away, plus 3 bags of stuff in the
  13. Wow, this is exciting. And really impressive. My trick for remember centuries is that the 1st century started in 0001, so everything counts from there.
