  1. I realize this challenge doesn't end for another 2 days but obviously I haven't been super active so I'm wrapping up here. I love my Peloton and I'm already on workout 3 of this week and have 2 more planned. I missed cardio and enjoying physical workouts so much. In fact, I already did a workout this morning and see many more morning workouts ahead of me. I'm drinking a ton of water and sticking with my goal. Also am eating a lot more mindfully and trying to make *better* choices if not the best. Overall, I'm feeling like I've made a great dive back into the worl
  2. Ya'll I got a peloton over the weekend and it's amazing. I've missed cardio so bad but don't feel comfortable going to the gym in my apartment or public gyms just yet. So I splurged and am considering it a graduation/congrats on my new job gift for myself. Anyways - expect lot's of spin updates.
  3. You are just flying through those belts. (Or maybe the past 3 years have just gone really fast.) Either way - badass.
  4. I'm really proud of my lizard brain lately because weirdly enough, it is the part of me that is keeping me working out. My conscious brain keeps telling me I don't have to and then I'll find myself queuing up a workout and doing it anyway. Last night was 45 minutes of easy yoga followed by a 10 minute meditation session. Lunch was pad cashew with tofu and was 90% vegetables and delicious. Breakfast was avocado toast with eggs. And dinner was just a piece of rustic bread because I wasn't actually hungry and I wasn't going to force myself to eat when I didn't want to. I'm
  5. Lollll Fair. Metrics for new goal: Work out 3 times a week. Drink more water than coffee. Be more conscientious about eating? (I don't like counting calories because I can get unhealthy while doing so or let going over really upset me so I don't want to make that a goal. But taking pictures doesn't seem appealing either. I think I just want to be more mindful about what I'm eating/drinking and can move towards a more specific goal later?)
  6. Check in time: I'm getting my feet back under me with working out a bit more. I met my goal of three workouts last week and worked out last night (cardio and barre) even though I really didn't want to. Water goal is going well and increasing veggies/fruit intake is improving as well. I don't know if I'm progressing in the weight/measurements area because I didn't record those but that's for later. Catticus is home and mostly doing well! He doesn't like when I leave in the mornings and I suspect he hides under the bed all day but that'll change. He was playing last nigh
  7. Thank you!! It's so tough though. Omg thank you - I may have done this to my mom's a few times and I'm so glad I'm not the only one. 😂
  8. Wednesday happy hour went long and working out was not happening. But yesterday I killed it. Got home from working late and finishing up a few projects, talked myself into working out and then stretching after. Then I had homemade chicken salad and tea before finishing unpacking the last of my kitchen boxes and meditating before bed. Basically, it was just a really good day. Then this morning I accidentally set off my and my neighbor's fire alarms while making toast (It wasn't even that burnt - no smoke or anything!) and they wouldn't turn off, so that was fun.
  9. It took me far too long to realize this was about a tattoo and I definitely thought you were getting an ant as a pet?
  10. Was planning on working out yesterday but emotionally and physically I was just drained after work. Nothing in particular happened but I'm still trying to adjust to working 5 days a week at an office from not doing anything, barely seeing anyone except my mom, and being able to nap every day whenever I wanted during quarantine. I'm sure I'll adjust soon enough - I actually really enjoy my job and being able to sit at my desk without any back pain is new and exciting too (one day I will stop talking about how much the surgery helped me but today is not that day). I sort of started
  11. Could you do a little bit of the excel training in the morning and the rest at night? That way it isn't such a big chore post-work? Are you just stretching on your own or are you using a program?
  12. Here's a vague-goal for this challenge - every morning at my office I am so stiff and keep popping tylenol like it's my day job. So by the end of this challenge, I'd *like* to be waking up early enough to do a yoga or stretching session. It doesn't even have to be that long - just 15 minutes or so.
  13. I was one of the very last people to leave my office today and thank god because I swear it took me 2 minutes to get down the single flight of stairs and thank god for railings and hand sanitizer. 😂 I felt pathetic. Came home and did some easy yoga and stretching. I still need to eat a fruit or veggie tonight (unless wine counts? Yes? oh NO? No. ok.) (OH! And I had a backup chicken noodle soup for lunch that I brought to my office for just an occasion but I was really hoping it would have lasted longer than the first day of my second week.😒)
  14. I just had to come complain about the DOMS. It's been awhile and ow. Walking is hard but walking in heels is pain.
