  1. Hi there! Found ya… and I am very happy to see you're still here! Since I do not feel ready for another challenge ( I had a very bad February) , I'll hang around if I may, offering my support. :) A battle log seems easier to maintain than challenges, which are bound to sort of get scattered after a while.
  2. New challenge, not so new goals... But hey, constant dripping wears away the stone. Last challenge I was somewhat impaired because a nasty virus sent me adrift between bed and sofa, leaving occasional clear days for work and bare necessities. But I do not wish to complain. Selfcare was big, and it helped. I managed to set myself straight again with Paleo, which helped a lot, too. Mindfulness is difficult when your brain feels like a chloroformed cottonball, but then … here's to the February challenge! By the way, it is a leap year, and February has 29 days. 29 beautiful days to make the be
  3. In general, I feel good about the challenge because for once I've set myself manageable goals instead of overwhelming myself with too much ambition. The last two weeks I had a nasty cold, but managed to at least do part of it (mainly because it involved selfcare, which is easier when you only hang around between bed and sofa…). I have to say I love the 4-week format! February will definitely be my next challenge. Wait a second - that is today! Yikes!!!
  4. Just resurfacing in time for the end of the challenge. *sigh* I had a nasty cold, and on top a difficult time at work. It seems all sorted out right now. Selfcare was great, though, because there was no other way to get over this especially mean virus. I still have achy joints and muscles. At least my head is clear, and that weird "chloroformed" feeling has gone away. Yoga got worse, I could really see how I got stiffer in the course of that cold. Things that worked one day didn't work the next day anymore. But- I stayed Paleo *yay* and I sure was into whatever I was doing every day… ma
  5. Found out what the herb is called in English: Pink rockrose or Cretan rockrose (botanical name Cistus incanus). Your tea concoction sounds great! I never thought of using elderflowers in tea, usually I make some kind of syrup from them in springtime, which can be put into mineral water and makes a refreshing drink. For a common cold, I use the pure (and kind of bitter) juice of elderberries heated, maybe with a tea spoon full of acacia honey (otherwise I can't ge the kids to drink it). Even if you don't meet your walking target, try to get out at least sometimes to catch some fresh air.
  6. Might as well include that weekend. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but for me it feels kinda odd to just stop in the middle of the week…
  7. Week two is almost over as well => time sure is flying! I agree that mindfulness is not easy. Getting sidetracked is much easier, unfortunately. But I will keep working on it! Decluttering just became a more intense focus: we want to make it possible for our girls to not have to share their room anymore. Each girl needs her own space, and a chance to sometimes shut the door. Which means that husband moves out of his office into mine. We both are decluttering, because my room is very small. But we can share my fairly big shelf, and there is room for a second desk. Still, I need to fre
  8. Urgh, cold again? Poor thing. Good defense: hot ginger tea. And tea from a herb we call "Cystus" … I'll try to find out what this is in English.
  9. Recognizing what is going on is the first step to real change and improvement. And yes, a good night sleep is very helpful to get a clear head for making decisions! "Bottom of the totem pole" --- first thing that springs to my mind: wow he can take a lot, carrying all the others on top! Would they be able to do the same thing in your place? Hmmm, doubtful in probably more than one case. So work your way up the pole, but don't just sit up there. Use your wings.
  10. Looks a lot like you're doing good! I'll stick around, lurking uhm, watching how it is going! By the way: nice avatar!
  11. Just take one step after another! I think you are doing great. Your challenge list could easily be the one from my husband, if he were on NF … Thesis -- hey, once you've got your degree believe me that soon nobody will ask anymore WHEN you did. Important is: YOU DID GET IT! Keep going, I see a lot of good and promising stuff going on here!
  12. True. There simply is no "one fits all" solution. To recognize this helped me to get over the disappointment when I unsuccessfully tried to copy the success of others by doing what they were doing. The hard but satisfying part is to find out what is good for oneself, and then sticking with it. No matter whether sports related, or related to other aspects of life.
  13. I just love my alarm clock! Much nicer to wake up with this instead of nerve-wrecking beeping noises. It had a considerable influence on my modd in general, and on the way I feel about starting a new day - even a work day. We can learn from each other no matter what our goals are. Glad to see you here! Week one in over, and I made happily the transition back to my good old low carb Paleo living. Have to admit small carb withdrawal attacks, but this is gone now fortunately. I follow the two week low carb challenge on dietdoctor.com. Works nicely, and the recipes are ace! Yoga is a
  14. No idea about the new character system yet, either. But I don't do the stat stuff, and I am totally fine with it. There are other ways to see whether something worked out well or whether it did not. Writing my challenge thread keeps me accountable, and keeping a personal journal helps, too. I like your goals, and I keep my fingers crossed for you that the wine delivery won't interfere with Drynuary. Introducing rainbow-hued biofuel sounds as delicious as it sounds fun - though I have to say that it would be for me very challenging to make it to five servings per day… especially fruit. I
