  1. So it's been a hard couple of weeks, and I haven't done much but work, and try to sleep. I did get out for a run sporadically, but nothing regular and that kinda bums me out, but I also feel like I did what was best for my body at the time, at least exercise wise (Nutrition-wise is a totally different, horror story) But work has been... extremely taxing, so adding extra stress by way of running on top of that just didn't sound like a good idea. I'm sure my body, and my chiropractor, will thank me on that lol but now I have 2 weeks or so off work while
  2. okay, so this week sucked. not even gonna try and sugar coat it. I did a whole big fat lot of nothing. in my defense, it is kinda hard to go out running when you're in some apocalyptic flooding rain that seems like it will never end... okay, that might be a little dramatic, I'm on the West side of Michigan so we haven't got it quite as bad as, say, the Detroit area, but it has been pretty darn wet and hard to get out and do anything. I also have been sick the last couple days. Just the dizzy, nauseous variety of sick. But we continue on, we don't
  3. *furtively darts to a secluded corner* I will take something extremely delicious, but horribly alcoholic. If it contains absinthe, all the better. I'm in a mood lately. *pops some cash into the electronic table jukebox and plays something folky, angry, but energetic. Something good for running like a wild thing* Now Playing: Highway Queen by Nikki Lane
  4. Well we're not off to the greatest start, eating like crap(ish) so far today, because I had zero energy, and a lot of things planned. Planning to make sure I still get in one planned meal for dinner tonight, and get it logged. I'm worried about my ability to do my run tomorrow morning though, with everything feeling blah from eating horribly. Guess we'll see when we get there. On a positive note, I am going grocery shopping today, which means I'm on schedule to get everything prepped and ready for the new week of meals (my weekly plans start on Saturday, based on my Friday grocery
  5. Well here we are again, hoping this is not another case of insanity, doing the same things over again, and expecting a different result. I feel like I always start these challenges with the best of intentions to update regularly and keep with it, but it always fails for one reason or another. Usually it's the simple fact of trying to do too much all at once. So we're going to try things a little differently. We're going to give myself grace, and wiggle room, and we're going to keep it simple stupid 💋. I always feel guilty, because I want to cheer others on an
  6. it was an odd choice, but he seems to enjoy doing it. It's a language i know almost nothing about, so it's been interesting trying to help him, but luckily Duolingo is pretty intuitive.
  7. That might work, especially since we have a working printer and an ink plan that will auto send ink when we start to get low lol. As for how the last 5 weeks went, it went about fair to Midland I suppose... lost a few pounds, kept up with my running, and towards the end I started keeping up with my Korean. Also been cleaning and organizing well. Things to work on for the next challenge will be: keep up the running, Korean, and cleaning. Finish the Sept 5k in under 50 minutes, track my eating, and work on mobility. In other news, homeschooling is going.... well it's going. XD some d
  8. And it happened again >_< started out strong then stopped tracking as much half way through... ugh... Anyone have any ideas to help keep this from happening? At least this time, I did at least keep up with my fitness regimens (for the most part) but tracking of everything went out the window.
  9. Okay so here's the rundown so far this week (also today's points may still increase, but this is what I have so far) Total Daily Points Sunday: 6 Monday: 13 Tuesday: 5 Wednesday: 7 So, quick daily highlights: Monday - Good day, great day, I should be averaging about 14pts a day if I do what I'm supposed to daily. -🏃‍♀️Got my run in! Did not do my mobility afterwards though... shame on me lol - 🍽 Logged all my food!!! Even the embarrassing stuff Tuesday
  10. I love the acronym! Lots of good vibes being sent your way, I cannot imagine the immense amount of planning and prep you have to deal with this year with everything being so crazy. I hope everything goes smoothly for you! Love that you will be getting your students outside, I feel like kids this year are really going to need it!
  11. Yeah, it will be an adjustment, but I'm very (VERY VERY!) blessed with a really good really smart kid, and only one right now, so it's nowhere near as hard as it could be. Technically, he could have gone back to school, or done online remote learning, but the way those options were presented would not work for our family. My son is going in to 3rd grade, and at the beginning of the quarantine baloney he was at somewhere around a 4th grade reading and math level. When the quarantine started, they basically halted learning new stuff, so the 3rd graders will likely spend the whole first sem
  12. Yeah, the perfectionist in me wouldn't have it any other way xD T_T
  13. Alright! Official start time! Day one point total: 6 - Sundays will almost always be a low point day, it's the day I mostly spend sleeping because it's my transition from normal daywalker back to nightwalker. This challenge will also prove to be especially crucial to developing a routine, as I will now be homeschooling the little one this year, and doing that on a 3rd shift schedule will be tricky.
  14. The online classes are a good idea. Unfortunately the home gym stuff is something I'd love, but I live in an upper apartment and the lady below us already complains about us making too much noise just walking around and talking. Anytime I try to work out inside its met with screaming from below. >_< But it's definitely a thought for the future
  15. waiting for my cell phone to charge enough to go on my run... so i'm setting up my spreadsheet and realized i have no good ideas for rewards for myself this challenge. what are some non-food reward suggestions you guys have. Looking for a range, from small rewards for not the best performance, to really big rewards for A+ performance. Almost all the previous rewards I had set up were things that we have not opened back up here - concerts, fitness classes, day spas/massages...
