    Finding the right path

    These both sound really good! Well done!
  3. Not really sure what my goals are yet. But things are going pretty well these days. It made me think of a quote from "Muriel's Wedding" that I've always liked: "....my life's as good as an ABBA song. It's as good as Dancing Queen" Yeah, I want to appreciate what I have a little bit, and not keep trying to shove in more things. There will be running. There will be exciting housecleaning (trying to summon up the courage to tackle the kitchen) I think there will be running form drills and pre-hab

    I think you do a lot more house projects that I do. It's embarrassing how dirty some parts of my house turned out to be. I've been pretty surprised.

    Xena enjoys 'Hero Season'

    Challenge wrap-up I did great on running and housecleaning. Got in two 20-milers this challenge (the second one was today) and feel really ready for my marathon in 3 weeks. Yesterday I finished up the cleaning chores....there was a shocking amount of grime in the utility closet! I feel great about those things. I didn't make my goals for calories or cross-training. Some of it was lack of tracking, some of it was throwing my back out for a week early on, some of it was being really busy with running high mileage. I would have liked to have made these goals, but I'm not too worried about it. I've gotten into a good routine of going to yoga class and getting to the gym. I'm pretty happy with where my weight it. About 10 lbs lighter than it was during the winter and spring. I'm going to give up on the pushup and chin-up goals. Maybe I'll re-start them at some point. They've just dragged on too much and don't feel fun anymore. Gotta spend a bit of time thinking about goals for next challenge that I actually feel motivated to achieve....

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. Especially sorry that it is causing financial hardship. Thinking good thoughts.

    Thom keeps his head right

    I think when you are in the situation, it's hard to think about what boundaries to maintain, what to do when they are disregarded etc. Counselor should definitely be able to help with that. Potato salad looks awesome!

    Jungle Queen in Training, Part 1: DJ Trippy T

    You seem to be missing cider. I'm also a little stymied here, because I'm guessing you might want to fit tacos in more than once, and I'm not sure how to do that. Based on all the complaining I have heard from you re pants, I'm not sure I believe this. oh...and hi there DJ! Losing weight it hard. As you know, I'm a fan of calorie counting . Well, not exactly a fan, but I think it's the most straightforward approach, and it pretty much has to work if you do it.

    We call it "zero week". A lot of people like having a little break from the structure of the challenge, as well as some time to plan, re-group, and test out new ideas. Some people don't like it, and that's ok...people customize and keep their old challenge going longer or start the new one early. Whatever works for you is great.
  13. Sounds like an important thing to internalize.
