Also probably on the dehydrated side, which I need to work on. Didn't hit my step goal, but I did stay under my calorie limit and got to bed on time. Hopefully I can get everything back on track starting tomorrow!

    Does endurance for a sport fall in that "etc"? I would consider that part of the skill, but not sure if it counts for the mini. It's not just to tire myself out, but so that I can sustain a higher level of play/skate faster and/or longer during a bout. I don't want to cheat, so if that's not what the mini covers I won't count it.

Yesterday I was feeling like I was going to fall asleep all day. I figured it was because I took a different allergy medicine than normal because my usual stuff was still packed. I dug the regular stuff out of the suitcase last night, and when I woke up this morning I realized that no, it wasn't the medicine, I was really that tired. So, did not meet my step goal but will definitely be getting to bed on time. Also ended up going over my calories because we had Chinese for dinner. Given that I was super hungry all day, I'm not too worried about it. And anyway, one day won't mess me up, I won't be making it a pattern, and we're going to plan healthy meals and get stuff to cook them with tomorrow.

    Today's update! Lunches packed: 0/9 Coffees bought: 0/3 max Breakfasts cooked: 0/7 Dinners cooked: 0/9 Bonus points: 2 Daily calorie goals met: 0/23 Bonus points: 2 Weights lifted: 0/6  Yoga sessions: 0/23  Step goals met: 8/36    In bed on time: 2/26   Only slightly late getting to bed, so that's good. Commuted by bike today, so got 4 miles of riding on top of meeting my step goal. Didn't get yoga in, but my choice was between doing yoga or running to the store so we didn't run out of toilet paper; I have zero doubts about which of those was the higher priority.

    Need a quick opinion. I rode my bike to and from work today, because my husband was using my car before his isn't working. However, this is something I've been wanting to do anyway to help with my cardio for derby, and the car thing just gave me a really good excuse to not avoid it. Do I get to count it, or is it considered part of my normal day?

    Ok, back from vacation and ready to start my challenge for real. I've adjusted a few things in my tracker to take into consideration the reality of having been on vacation and the time it will take to get my life back in order. So I don't fail before I even start, because that's not a good way to set goals. Tracker updated through yesterday, taking into account the food situation and lack of access to a place to do yoga. Basically I'm now starting most of my goals on Saturday.

    Hi! I am slightly late signing up for my classes, because I am on vacation and actually forgot what day it was. I will be ready for class in the next day or two, just need to figure out what I'm doing... Ok, figured it out. Herbology (hand balancing is specifically one of my challenge goals), Potions (my family is going to take another stab at eating paleo and I have cooking goals for my challenge), and History of Magic (roller derby! We're finally about to get going again after a hiatus, so I will be skating more again, and doing lots of off-skates training so I can get back in shape for it and hopefully get moved out of Fresh Meat quickly).

    Hi! I'm actually not too worried about the bailing part. I just don't have a lot of room to work on them, and even less wall. I think I might have a wall that will work when I get home, otherwise I'll have to work on them outside. Way met my step goal today! And also went on an 8 mile bike ride. All things considered, it was a very good day today, aside from the wicked sunburn. Apparently I failed at sunscreen application. :'( Step goals met : 6/36

    I think that about sums things up. :) I've started picking up the pieces, and have some bricks on one of those big flat green pieces, but now it's time to organize them so it ends up a solid foundation instead of trying to build a crazy roller coaster on a bunch of random, haphazard pillars. On to the goals! Watch what you eat: Pack lunch to work at least 3 times per week (exception for week 1, because I will be on vacation for part of it). Do not buy a fancy coffee more than once per week. Cook breakfast at least twice per week on workdays. Cook dinner at least 3 times per week. Record everything in MFP and don't go over your calorie goal. Fix your muscles: Lift weights twice a week (exception for week 1, because vacation). Do yoga for at least 15 minutes every day. Skate at least once a week until practices resume. Meet my step goal every day in July (and the rest of the challenge and on). Recovery: Get enough sleep - in bed by 10:30 every day (exception for week 1). On the yoga thing, I'm doing this and the related instagram challenge that runs from yesterday through the 16th. Anyone want to play with me? Looking at what I've written out here, it looks like a lot. Except, it's a combination of stuff I've been doing (I've been tracking my calories for about 3 months now, and am down 8lbs as of last week!) and things I've been trying to do but not being as successful as I'd like. So, now I have a thing to track it all and help me get organized, and hopefully succeed. And, this all fits into my big goal of looking fly for my 10 year wedding anniversary trip to Hawaii in October, so, ya know...motivation. :) What made me decide to bop back over to the Assassins for this challenge? Mostly my increased focus on flexibility (and handstands!). I have gotten way too stiff, and it's time to fix that before I hurt myself playing derby.
