  1. Last challenge got a little rough about halfway through, but I got a solid framework built to work on I think. Explanation on the proposal I submitted, TL;DR I asked for more help in the team at work So, that's staying exactly the same. SQ1 - Doing yoga before work (4/week) I'm going to try to get this more consistent this round, basically. I had about a 50% rate on this one last challenge, but on the days i've done it I have definitely noticed a difference. SQ2 - Food prep on days off (2/wk) Prepping a lunch to go with me to work for the following 2 days basically so that I don't have to worry about that the days I'm working, since the last thing I feel like doing after 10-12 hr shifts is typically prepping food for the next day. SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR/AR (2/wk) With the fact that Ohio is no longer a frozen waste land, I'm adding Zombies, Run! and Pokemon, Go! into the mix here. (Zombies, Run! is only walking right now, with chases turned off since my knees are in no mood for running more than a few yards yet) Just like last time, I'm counting week 0 (this week) for the challenge, so the totals will be out of 6 weeks.
  2. Right there with you on the mayhem front with a bit of jumbled mess happening partway through last challenge, but you still did a lot - and you're working towards your goals still, and hey - woot for devotion habit!
  3. Challenge totals: 31/48 SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :13/24 This was the part I struggled with getting the most consistency on this challenge, but also one of the things I noticed had the biggest impact on my day at work when I managed to get this in. SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 9/12 This got tough at some points with OT and trying to fit things in around a schedule that did not want to flex much some weeks, but I think I got some extra help and pointers towards the end of the challenge that may help with this part moving forward. SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 9/12 This part of the challenge was definitely the one I wanted to do the most, normally the easiest to get to when I wasn't tied up at work till 8pm (or sore like I was the last week of the challenge). Overall, not the worst - but plenty o'room for improvement. And I also put in a proposal this week to my manager that he took favorably and I already have another team member very much on board that if it gets approved, will move my position and add another person to our team to help balance out the time issues (I'll give more info on the next challenge posting once I get that up.)
  4. Belated Week 4 check in: SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :2 /4 Did really well for the first half of the week, then the second half of the week kinda went up in smoke SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 2/2 I managed to prep ahead at least. I also talked to my health coach through work on monday of this week, and got some helpful tips when I told her about how my overtime can explode - and often with little warning. So now, I have some frozen soups and dinners stashed for emergencies where I wind up having to spend extra time at work so I don't wind up eating dinner at 10 pm Dinner for the earlier part of the week that just turned out really good: https://www.instagram.com/p/CMLmFPEJkED/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 2/2 There were some Swordsman updates and stuff going on, so I was fighting bosses and having a ton of fun on there. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Week 5 check in: SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :1/4 I managed to hurt myself somehow (not sure what I did actually, other than inventory day - which I mean I was on my feet walking the whole time, but that shouldn't have hurt my back) so wound up sleeping and resting a bit extra to let my lower back ease up for most of the week. SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 2/2 I. Got. SOOOOOO much food made on Wednesday - chicken noodle (which is what I froze on my health coach's suggestion), shrimp scampi with spaghetti squash for the base - which was kinda meh, but that was more the sauce than the squash, and corned beef brisket from Aldi that I divided up after dinner with some mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts into basically TV dinners, which were ridiculously good. (also turned one into corned beef hash that Saturday, 10/10 - highly recommend) ALL the food preps: https://www.instagram.com/p/CMi3Gdbp0JH/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Corned beef hash: https://www.instagram.com/p/CMpVUM1pUKg/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link The one-pot chicken thighs & veggies I made for the first half of the week https://www.instagram.com/p/CMa6Ax7pmUy/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 0/2 I don't have any tracked on my Fitbit, and the last couple of weeks are a bit of a blur so I'm not entirely certain if I did one and didn't track it or if that was all the previous week.
  5. Week 3 check in: A lot of overtime and general hecticness happened last week, so kinda got knocked on my tail a bit as far as goals went : SQ1 - Doing yoga before work :2 /4 I managed to get yoga in before work Tue and Thu, but was struggling against the urge to sleep in a lot of the week due to 12+hr shifts and getting to bed later than I wanted to. SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 1 /2 I prepped for the second half of the week, the first half of the week was pretty crap though. SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR : 1/2 I got this in saturday (and was on for quite a bit) Thankfully, last weekend was my weekend off - normally I'd be off today as well for a 3 day weekend, but I have a course I'm taking online for work that's today through Wednesday that's 11-7 my time (the course is on PST) so I have a nice laid-back morning and just 8ish hours of actual work for the next few days + homework, so much more laid back than the last couple of weeks. I also used the weekend to get my feet back under me for food prep, and should have a decent time getting yoga in before work with a late start for week 4.
  6. Week 2 : end of week check in This week honestly kinda sucked from a food & workout perspective; I wound up working a bunch of OT, didn't get my food prepped for the second half of the week like I should have on my normal day off that I worked a half day on, and didn't do my yoga before work the last half of the week either SQ1 - Doing yoga before work : 2/4 I got this in the first half of the week, but not the second. SQ2 - Food prep on days off : 1/2 I got food prepped for the first half of the week Monday night, but wound up working a half day Thursday (which would normally have been my day off this week) after doing some errands earlier in the day, and just did NOT feel like making food ahead. Which wound up with me eating terribly Friday and Saturday, including way too much fast food SQ3 - Getting cardio in VR :2/2 Managed to get this in today and Monday, so barely bookended the week with it. Which... y'all have to see this glitch from Swordsman's event right now, added bonus - you get to hear me completely loose it laughing at this ridiculousness. @Starpuck, if you haven't gotten this game yet you so totally should try it btw if you like sword fighting shenanigans
  7. I'm in love with that tiger painting! The two cat paintings sound cool too, and look like they have a solid start with the lineart.
  8. I would try not to be too self conscious about it; he's probably had a few other folks with a similar issue crop up, and may not have to manipulate anything too close for comfort at all if it's hip related. And he might just have some stretches he can recommend without him doing anything to it. (Mine's had to basically reassemble me a couple of times at this point) That does tend to affect mood a bit I've had days go from ok to wanting to bawl my eyes out over nothing and usually those 2 are the culprits. Also, I hear you on the coffee calories - why does coffee need so much creamer to taste good?!?! Hopefully the rest helped with the DOMS, have you gotten to soak in a bath much with it?
  9. I usually use NIV for mine Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. This, but also it reminds us that we'll never have it all figured out either - it's a journey, not a destination, and we're all a work in progress. I like that it encourages us to continue pressing onward, rather than looking at what we have achieved and saying "Ya know what, I've done enough." - which is an easy mindset to fall into
  10. At least the orders were from folks you know in person! Online customer service is a massive pain in the butt, and unfortunately internet strangers can be absolutely rude even when things go well with a sale. Hopefully the underboob cream helps; I had a rash under mine last time I went to my gyno and he recommended an anti-fungal cream for mine that cleared up whatever the issue was (which... will probably be back in the summer, because boobs are annoying)
  11. The other thing I'd pay attention to while you're limiting yourself to 1400/day is how your body feels - if you're starting to feel super fatigued and not doing so great, that's when you definitely want to re-evaluate where you're at.
