  1. You guys are the best! I feel kind of bad for not being very present on here lately and checking in with others, but it's all just crazy times in my world. I just finished creating striped fabric by sewing satin ribbon onto stretch velvet ... just buy striped fabric, crazy ballet people. As regards challenge - well, I'm eating reasonably healthfully most days, I did walk four times, and that's pretty much it. My end date before I get a break moved to next Tuesday ... I feel like somebody trying to get out of the criminal underworld who keeps taking "one last job". Except less crime a
  2. Yeeeeeeees!!! People always act like they get bonus life points for coming to work to spread germs and sit around feeling horrible, unable to get any work done. Don't let anyone deceive you, you do NOT get bonus life points for this.
  3. I have a feeling this is not what you mean and I'm in ignorance of some slang the cool kids use ... but here's this anyway because why not:
  4. Aw, thanks guys! Yesterday was a rough one. The weather was lousy, I overslept, and my schedule was tighter than anticipated. I ended up not packing meals because I woke up too late, which is not the end of the world - there are reasonable options not too far away. I opted for less reasonable options, though - let the hungry and cranky get to me. No walk happened, except for to and from the car in parking lots. Today I'm more on track, but not any less cranky. I'm not quite the point where I was last summer, where I was seriously considering faking my own death to get out of respon
  5. As you may have guessed, I once again underestimated how crazy a 90 hour work week is. So, nothing happened last week in terms of goals. I know I shouldn't complain about having so many job opportunities, but I am really tired of working. Anyway, it's a new week - it'll still probably be a 70-80 hour week but I'll try again. My goals for this week were to keep calories under 1600 (I can do it, I just have to not give up and eat out.), walk for 30 minutes a day, and do one strength training workout. I feel like I should be able to do that much. I really do need to get up and move around a
  6. Not gonna lie, I'm not feeling it this morning. Any of it. When my alarm went off I literally said, "No!" and rolled over. Then I rolled back over and got up cause I had a meeting ... Anyway, another challenge starting off with a week of madness. It seems to be a theme. Last challenge I had The Big Musical - this time it's The Goth Punk Surfer Opera (just the way Mozart imagined it, I'm sure). Week 1: The focus will be on healthful eating under my calorie goal of 1600 a day, and tracking it. I got lazy on the tracking at the end of the last challenge. Exercise is going to have to g
  7. Or, maybe you're just stuck in a time loop. There may be an ancient alien artifact somewhere that you need to destroy to escape. Looks like good, practical goals!
  8. Ha, yeah - I think it's mostly that he had weight to lose whereas mom was already at a healthy weight and just wants to lose the "last five pounds" to get to her ideal goal weight. Plus, men vs. women ... I'm sure there are guys who lose weight slowly but the guys in my family seem to lose five pounds by thinking about going on a diet.
  9. Went over on calories yesterday - about 1800. But I also walked for an hour instead of half an hour, and I also did my mobility workout. The going over on calories tends to be because I want an afternoon snack, especially when I have to go straight from one job to another and don't get supper until after 8 pm. Not quite sure what to do about that ... I guess just deal with feeling hungry? I usually have an apple and peanut butter. My lunch usually contains some element of mayonnaise or olive oil, so I could cut that out? (But then things are dry and tasteless, I whine). However, I'm usua
  10. Looks good! I'm working on walking and stretching, too.
  11. By all means, tell about your class! Your course of study is actually really interesting and unusual. What's a writing intensive? I would assume intensive writing? Whatever that is - but it sounds intense, it's even in the name!
  12. I think I'll just carry this challenge on into the next one. Last week was definitely rough on the eating stuff front - I was at my parents' house for Easter weekend and the Easter candy was abundant and incessant. As were the waffles for breakfast, the grilled cheeses for lunch, and of course Easter dinner to which a vast number of relatives showed up without warning. And yet somehow despite 11 extra people showing up, there was still far more than enough food. And yet, somehow, when I weighed in this morning I had not gained any weight. Hadn't lost any, but hadn't gained any. I'd c
  13. Ugh, yes! Just tell me already! It's been a pretty rough week on all fronts. I just realized it's only Wednesday morning ... so a rough two days? All the upheaval at work has made everyone angry and upset and nervous, which is not surprising, but it makes for a very emotionally charged workplace. I think it's probably related that I'm 0/2 on all my goals. That and the extra things scheduled in the evening. I could totally have done a walk and mobility work this morning - I woke up in time - but I laid in bed and stared at the ceiling for 40 minutes because I just didn't want
  14. That sounds like some good chicken.
  15. The Big Thing at work turned out not to be a big thing - at least for me - just something I needed to know about that isn't public knowledge yet. My job is safe! For now ...
