  1. I've never thought of watering down the juice, I may have to try that. I have plenty of fruit juice sitting in my mini fridge from the time before I knew it was partially causing my reflux. Overall, I think the challenge went well. I stuck to my plan of only having fast food once a week. I also didn't drink any soda at all, which is a huge improvement. I know I lost weight, but I don't know exactly how much (I think around 5 lb). The only part of the challenge I feel I failed at was the brushing/flossing part. I still count this challenge as a victory, though. I'll just try the one faile
  2. That's a good suggestion, however, almost all fruit juice makes my acid reflux just go nuts. I'll stick to putting a little sugar in my tea when I want a sweet drink. I am going to do carbonated water, though, that doesn't seem to agitate it. My challenge is still going strong. For the most part. I still haven't had any soda, and I'm still not going over my fast food limits. I'm thinking about cutting fast food out entirely for my next challenge, it seems to be working so well for soda. I'm still not brushing and flossing on a daily basis. I think that will be a part of my next challenge
  3. That sounds like a good idea, @zeroh13! I do my grocery shopping on Wednesdays, so I'll look into that when I go to the store. Thanks!
  4. Hey! Week 1 was great! I managed to not eat fast food more than once, I brushed and flossed every day, and I drank no soda. Week 2 wasn't as great, but still pretty good. In week 2, I stuck to my fast food and soda goals, but I let myself get out of the habit of brushing and flossing every night. Part of it was that I stayed out late several days, and I let that derail me. Week 3 is going well so far, except that I still haven't gotten back into the habit of brushing and flossing every night. I thought I was in trouble, because I got a big soda craving. I somehow managed to fight th
  5. Me too. Most of my problem is 8am classes. I have no idea how I'll make it once I have to work at 8am every day. I guess I have until graduation next May to figure it out
  6. Last challenge, I had a good amount of success. In fact, I think that was one of my best challenges. I'm going to try to keep that ball rolling, and set a few new goals. Last time, I really only completed 3 of my 4 goals. I believe I bit off a bit more than I could chew, what with school starting and all. So this time, I'm only doing 3 goals. You know what they say--3 goals is better than none! Or something like that. So without further ado, my goals are: 1. Halve Fast Food consumption (again). Last challenge, I successfully cut my fast food consumption down from twice a week to once a we

  8. Hey! Sorry for my long absence, I had a lot to do for school last week. Speaking of last week, it went well. I stayed within my fast food limits, and I did my schedule every day. I did however fail at both Sugar-free Sunday and Meatless Monday, but not a big failure. On Sunday, I forgot it was Sunday and had a candy bar. Not bad. And on Monday my parents decided to grill and wanted me to come over. I forgot it was Monday lol, and I accepted. It seems I'm not so good at remembering the days of the week anymore. That's still just one meal though, so I don't consider it a big failure. Overal
  9. Yeah I don't envy you that reading. Sounds like a nightmare. Sorry the tablet's giving you a headache :(. Maybe there's something you can change in the settings that would help? Today went rather well. I stuck to my schedule and accomplished almost everything I wanted to do. I ate zero fast food. All in all, a good day :).
  10. Thanks for the reassurances on my long post :). I couldn't imagine trying to get 3 people out the door, I can barely get myself out lol. Just wanted to check in today. Today went well on the Meatless Monday front, I didn't eat any meat. I also made my schedule and kept to it fairly well. I'm still in the process of making tomorrow's schedule. And thanks for the good luck at school, I'm going to need it. Mostly to not strangle the teacher who assigned the book the day before classes began :).
  11. Hey guys! Sorry for my absence. I went on vacation and kinda forgot about this. All in all though, the first week went pretty well. I kept to my sugar free Sunday, and my Meatless Monday. I struggled a little with the daily schedules, but I made one most days. I kept inside of my fast food limits--only had fast food twice. Week 2, however, I have no excuses. I failed my sugar free Sunday (not badly, just a little bit of candy before I remembered it was Sunday.), and I still completely forgot about this thread. Oops. I did stick to my Meatless Monday, though, and I scheduled all but one day. I
  12. Hey! Today did go better, as a matter of fact. I stuck to my Meatless Monday easily. Part of it is that after eating a big greasy burger with onion rings, I feel like crap. My acid reflux is having a field day. I kept waking up and having to eat some tums. I do have a fast food plan, and it's comprised of several parts. Part 1--dealing with stress better. I find that I crave fast food and similar crap when I'm really stressed out. My therapist and I are working on that together. Part 2-making healthy meals in advance. I have a habit of doing my grocery shopping and cooking on the same day
  13. Hi! If/when I come up with some questions, I'll ask you first :). The first day didn't go so well. As a matter of fact, I forgot about the challenge completely after waking up with about 30 min left until work. It takes me about 15-20 min to drive to work, so...kinda slipped my mind. The second day was going ok, then I had a horrible afternoon and after a long day at work, paired with a long day at home, I wound up going out for fast food, so there goes my sugar free thing. Tomorrow should be better, though, as it's the last day before my vacation.
  14. 1. Halve fast food consumption. My average weekly consumption is 4 times a week. I’m going to aim for only 2 times a week. 2. Sugar Free Sunday. It’s exactly what it sounds like. I got the idea from Meatless Monday—one day a week where you don’t eat a particular something. This is exactly what it sounds like—on Sundays, no consuming sodas, energy drinks, candy, or anything with sugar in it. 3. Meatless Monday. My goal is to go full blown vegetarian. This is my starting spot. The rules are simple, no eating meat or fish. Eggs and milk are fine, though. 4.
