  1. Thanks fearlesscreek! Ok, so I worked 4 12 hour shifts (Sat-Tues), with the vast majority of the time on my feet, some CPR involved (a few rounds - if you've never done CPR, it's ridiculously taxing). Changed my diet up, for some reason I haven't been eating as much protein as normal and more fruit (lack of planning). Haven't gotten enough sleep for all of that. I had strength losses in the gym today. I've only been barbell training for about 3-4 weeks. I'm going to do less OT and be more vigilant with the proteins and ignore kcals. I usually work my 3 days in a row, and maybe that needs
  2. I have meals planned for Monday and Tuesday at work....I worked yesterday and I'm on today as well. I had 3 sodas yesterday, and only brought 3 with me today. I'm pretty tight (not really sore) feeling from my last workout so I also found a list with a few yoga poses to do tonight before bed. I think my bedroom will be the first room attacked.
  3. My first challenge I completed with maintaining all my goals. It was very difficult, but I did it and was super-duper happy about it. My next 2 challenges I really messed up. I set goals that were very challenging and built on top of my first challenge (so I would have to maintain those goals to achieve the next). I was also in the process of finishing RN school and starting a new job. After that, I stopped doing challenges for awhile. I got a gym membership a few weeks ago and have started a 5x5 lifting program. I love the way it makes me feel, and I LOVE knowing I can. I tried to tone down
  4. I'm at a B currently due to processed carb-y things. I took my NCLEX yesterday and freaked out before it. Waiting for results now....gah. Still in the game, though! If the weather holds out and I can get my paper written soon enough, I'd like to go for a bike ride today.
  5. Well, I've been off of it for about 4-5 days. I do have cravings for diet soda drinks, and we have some in the fridge (I'm waiting for my husband to finish them off). I have been drinking more coffee and water and telling myself I'm a person who doesn't like diet sodas. I also try to think of soda on disgusting things like trash or infected wounds, and that pretty much stops the cravings in their tracks. I have a very vivid imagination and have also seen some nasty wounds...once I start down that path it becomes much easier to deal with. I'm pretty ready for them to be out of the house, tho
  6. I got through my first challenge, and did not complete my second one (twice). I set unrealistic goals for my life situation. Main Goal: Staying Happy (I can get bummed out on occasion, and over time and experimentation, I have realize a lot of it is diet / exercise related) Goals: 1. No aspartame in anything EVER. This stuff makes me so depressed – I never realized it until just recently, I used to just think that’s how I was. 2. No high carb processed foods – cheese, dry red wine, mayo are alright; low carbs in general. 3. 2 daily check-ins with myself to see how I
  7. I don't know how the interview went, but everything else this last week was good. Plan for this week.... 3 body weight workouts, and eggs for breakfast 4 of 7 days. I never know about interviews. I applied for a whole bunch of other ICU positions just in case.
  8. It's totally a Halo reference, I know they use different beeps for the numbers, but that's what I was thinking of when I put it on there. I loves the Halo. I have a little purple spartan that I've had with me for every exam at school as my good luck charm. That's a great idea about the diet/exercise prioritization. Usually I do too much all-or-nothing between those. I was thinking walking, running, or bodyweight exercises. I really like using my kettlebell, too. It is really depends on each week and how quickly I get a job (the job will be a huge calorie burn in and of itself, so schedulin
  9. ARRRR..... So I've been in school for what seems an awfully long time now (and I'm a mommy and wife). I was taking summer classes and rocking my first 6 weeks challenge, then my final semester of nursing kicked me in the teeth. I signed up for both the challenges during the semester, but I didn't finish them. All nighters, 12 hour night shift preceptorship, multiple papers (one being a massive case study on a three system failure patient), and my own anxiety (the most prominent feature in my challenge failure) all played a part. I have done excellent in my nursing classes, though...but at th
  10. My goals have been hard to keep...too much life and crap getting in the way. I had a 12 hour hospital shift Sunday night and couldn't sleep Saturday day so all that = awake 30+ hours...not helpful. Monday - no Wheat Gills, no moving the ship (I tried, I just couldn't be awake anymore), no mushie work Tueday - I had a Wheat Gill.....I was so bummed about not exercising Monday that I caved in and was going to quit, but even if I don't "pass" I'll have tried and done some good things for myself, no moving the ship or mushie work Wednesday - no Wheat Gills, got my ship finally moving; I will be
  11. Homemaker = hardest job EVER and many times under-appreciated. You could try keeping track of your mood and energy levels with your cycle. Mine is always up and down at the same times every month. I haven't had the time to research what I should do to fix that, but it helps to know I'm cycling, not JUST being off. There's prolly electrolytes and stuff that could bring more stability into energy and mood levels. I dunno. Your doing great!!!!
  12. Oh, adventures! I'm right there with ya on not getting all 'dolled-up'. I want to, and I like to, I just never seem to make it happen. This will be integrated into the next challenge. I have to do the dish inspection, too....I always check a couple of 'em in case the first deceptively just looked clean... Do you work from home?
  13. I love your goals and the magnet dishwasher idea! I'm going to follow ya.
  14. I joined the team! We have a lot of the same type of goals - I'm not at the physical level I should be to perform my future job and have small kids and am married. Here's my challenge this time: I successfully completed my first challenge, and then bombed my second. I’m back for my second second challenge. My goals are more Adventure-based, so I thought I’d come play over here for a while instead of in the Assassins guild. I will be graduating nursing school very soon and am very busy (I may not reply right away if you’re interested in following, but I will eventuallyJ). My first 2 c
  15. I successfully completed my first challenge, and then bombed my second. I’m back for my second second challenge. My goals are more Adventure-based, so I thought I’d come play over here for a while instead of in the Assassins guild. I will be graduating nursing school very soon and am very busy (I may not reply right away if you’re interested in following, but I will eventuallyJ). My first 2 challenge plans were rather straight-forward, so I thought I’d jazz this one up with 2 things I adore – space and mushrooms. Goal: Chase down Exotic Space Mushrooms for research (build stamina t
