  1. Hey guys, sorry I've been out for a few days. I'm taking a bit of a digital sabbatical to spend time with fam! I'm going to keep offline for a day or two more, but rest assured, I'm still plugging away at my goals! (Being off the computer means more time outside and moving!) I will update in the next day or two, just don't kick me off the team please!
  2. Week 1 Challenge: Both complete! Everyday carry and survival kit win! 1. Work on C25K plan. Double plus bonus: Spend more time running outside! Only did this once instead of 3 times. Whoops. Try again next week. 2. Rebel Strength Guide Workout Been working on this. Kept it up. Win! 3. Increase water intake from 1 glass per day to 3+ (As a result, soda consumption should be 0!) TOTALLY WIN. I've had at least 4 glasses per day and 0 sodas. WIN WIN WIN 4. No candy. None. Partial win. Ate candy from my students once. Other than that none. Less than what I used to do. Working on 0 next week. Life goal: Do Rosetta Stone at least twice a week. Gotta get my German on! 3 times. WIN! Life goal # 2: Follow established Goob budget. Bills not in yet. That will determine this one. Life goal: Catch up on established wedding planning goals WIN! On target, which I wasn't last week. Bonus goal: Survive the last month of the first year of graduate school Oh sweet zombie brains. I am so close to done with the year....

  4. Well, it wasn't supposed to be in the snow, but Minnesota decided that it would have a spontaneous winter storm, 'cause it's a jerk.
  5. Today was pretty good. Made some tuna artichoke concoction that was delicious. Some veggies and a little bit of fruit. Less awesome (or maybe more awesome): Biked to and from school IN THE SNOW. Yuck. My legs felt like hell. But woot, that means it's working right?
  6. Yeah, I use Google Reader, but I have quite the twitch set up to just check blog sites anyway. I've been more dedicated to using Google reader this past week and it has helped. I agree, though, I think I need to cut down on some of the sites I follow. I mostly whiz through their posts for the few gems, but it's a lot of clutter. So far, so good on the facebook stuff! I've managed to keep it down to one check, and then I find I don't scroll through all the crap, which is great. Deleted the link on my tabs and off my ipod touch. I still feel the itch to check it frequently though--so hopefully that will subside as time goes on.
  7. Level up on being a baller today: I fixed my bike chain, so now I have a mode of transportation now that it's nice out instead of having the boy drive me to school (which was super swell when it was winter). Double plus awesomesauce--I cleaned the entire apartment today, and I'm surprisingly sore from some serious scrubbing. So...go me!
  8. Well, since I'm a lady (boobs: check. Va-jay-jay: check.), you've made yourself a lady friend already! Don't let the boys scare you, soon you'll be as tough as them anyhow
  9. I fly Stark colors pretty hardcore, but I'm definitely not anti-Dany. In fact, I'd be pretty pleased if there was some Stark/Targaryen action to kick the ass of the rest vying for the throne.
  10. I am a HUGE Firefly fan, and I love me some Buffy as well. Dollhouse was....mmm....disappointing, but I stopped watching after season one (Alan Tudyk was boss on it though!!) I think it would've gotten better if Joss had more time, but so it goes. Also, I'm not a huge Eliza Dushku fan. I'm barefoot as much as humanly possible. Love. It! Nothing better than dirty feet! Alethea- SOOOOO Excited for Dance with Dragons... if it happens. I know it's got a date set, but he still isn't done with it!! I watched the HBO series premiere last night and was thoroughly impressed. I think they're going to do great. Oh man, so good. What'd you think? More importantly, which King do you support?
  11. Woop Woop on getting the whole family into it! How was the c25k experience for you? I'm only on week three and it's already rough, but I'm planning on pushing through so I can run my first 5k sometime this summer! Keep up the good work!
  12. Your DBZ reference makes me SOOOOOOOOOO happy. Also, good on you for keeping up with tracking food intake. That's something I've been struggling with. Rock on, Frod!
  13. Hey man, keep your chin up and keep trekin'. If it isn't working for you, especially if it leaves you really weak, you won't be able to take care of yourself. How's the survival goals going?
  14. Congrats on pushing through on your goals. It seems like you're doing really well! Following along is quite the inspiration!!
  15. Frod, thanks for the video! That's a great idea since my struggle with running is really just building up lung endurance, so this will work great. Managed to get out for a run anyway despite the cold weather today. It was my first run in a looooooooooong time and my body felt it. Only made it through about half of my C25K 3rd week run (I was up to week 4 when I stopped because of winter weather), and I had to stop because my body was oh so no pleased. So, instead of messing something up, I walked the rest of the way, found a playground on my way back, and played on it for a bit. Tomorrow I'll try again and see if I can get farther into the workout. Woop woop!
  16. "Pew Pew Zombie Brainz" ? That's significantly less bad ass crime fighting force sounding though...
  17. Thanks Faline! I'm sure there are plenty of Zombies, so I'm not feeling too down. 1. Work on C25K plan. Double plus bonus: Spend more time running outside! Haven't started yet, because it's been miserably cold outside. Two weeks ago: Sunny, and 70. This week: Snow. GARARARARAR Minnesota. 2. Rebel Strength Guide Workout Started the beginner workout. Works well in my 3rd floor apartment during this awful week. 3. Increase water intake from 1 glass per day to 3+ (As a result, soda consumption should be 0!) SO FAR SO GOOD! I've overcome the God-awful caffeine hump and now it's not so hard...but I want me some Mt. Dew real bad. But water...mmm tasty. 4. No candy. None. Had a ring pop from one of my students. Boo. But a significant decrease than the usual. Life goal: Do Rosetta Stone at least twice a week. Gotta get my German on! Done! Life goal # 2: Follow established Goob budget. Good so far! Life goal: Catch up on established wedding planning goals (Whoops...) On top of it, this week! Woot. Got in touch with catering and dress stuff is going well! Bonus goal: Survive the last month of the first year of graduate school Oh blaaaaaaaaaaah, make it end.... Anybody want to write a final paper? Cause my end of the year-itis is pretty well in full swing. Today I have my last big event for work, so my life should calm down significantly afterwards. However, there will be lots of tasty foods at this event, so here's to willpower. I'll let you all know how it goes. Thanks for the support, everyone!
  18. After a long hiatus, I'm back again, and decided to reintroduce myself because there are a lot of new faces here since I last checked in. Everything above is still pretty much true, except now I'm 23, I'm almost done with my first year of graduate school, and that wedding is now less than 3 months away. So. Hi again! How y'all doing?
  19. Boom! I'm totally set on this one now! I had a lot of components of this challenge, but I did have to put them together. Daily: Now I have a charging station next to the door where I have my phone, ipod, keys, and purse. I also set my backpack there for the days I have class. This is so much more convenient than the random areas my phone and Ipod used to hide. Survival: Done for a while--I've worked for the past two summers at a nature center teaching summer camp, and part of one of the camps for the older kids is putting together a survival kit. It's small, in a case similar to altoids tin and has things like a blade, compass, matches, string, hooks, fishing line, needles, magnet, led, pencil, paper, and I added a small pocket knife. I also have a larger survival kit that sits in my car with the usual: flares, space blanket, water, lights, and a couple of other items I forget about. I'mmmmmmmmm ready!
  20. Slow as hell start. Grad school decided to rear its ugly head this week, so I really didn't focus on much of anything aside from avoidance. This week so far I've avoided candy and pop (yay!) But I haven't been getting my workouts in. Oof. Deal with the setbacks, and work towards the goal. Something is better than nothing, right?
  21. Woop woop! Welcome to the team. Let's slay some zombayssssss
