  1. 6 Week Challenge - Week 1 & 2 Update Week 1: This wasn't a very successful week in terms of my challenges. I over-scheduled myself and was in a mental rut that I hard a hard time getting out of. Goal 1 - I recorded my food intake only for a couple days during Week 1. Goal 2 - I worked out maybe half the days. Goal 3 - I got some organizing done, but other than that I barely touched them. Side Quest - This I actually handled quite well. I learned some major currencies and all of the countries in the Americas! I did, however, throw two awesome birthday parties and saw many, many goo
  2. I am definitely going to be taking that quiz! I've been using the Brainscape Geography app and it is really helping. I also just got a book from my aunt on traveling. I'm so excited to get started. What are you doing for cashflow while traveling? I think that is my biggest hurdle.
  3. Thanks fleaball! It is, but if I got through it once I can get through it again.
  4. My Main Quest: In October I had a minor surgery. Unfortunately, I have to have a second very soon, likely in within this next 6 weeks. The recovery period from the first surgery did two things: 1) It inhibited my ability to work out for months. 2) It brought on about a week of intense anxiety attacks and about a month of not being able to fully control my stress levels. Going into this a second time my main quest is to make sure my body and my mind are as prepared as possible for the second recovery process. I want to be as capable of healing as I can be. My 3 Goals: 1) Record everythi
  5. I didn't drink for over a year between 2013 and 2014. I started just doing it for a month as a dietary restriction. I was saving money and felt great so I set a goal of three months. I hit that and then went to a year. Hitting small goals and expanding from there seemed to help. A trick for not drinking socially for me was to get something that felt like a drink. I would get soda water with a lime or root beer in a bottle. This made me feel like I was still participating and deterred the nosy "Why are you not drinking?" crowd. Friends eventually figured it out and would just order me soda wa
  6. Aelinn - Thank you for the carrot pickles recipe. I will be giving that a try. Twibble - I got Bubbie's pickles at whole foods today and they are delicious! Thank you! Aegle - Steve has mentioned it in his posts. I checked it out a bit but haven't delved to deep. I'll give it another go eventually I am sure. Thank you for the good luck! Bookworm_Tess - I've been going to see a wonderful naturalist for a few months now. He specializes in herbs and acupuncture. I've seen a lot of improvement and I love going. What he explains makes a lot of sense to me. Unfortunately, if I'm eating like cr
  7. Thanks, Twibble! I just looked them up and there are more than a few places that sell them near me. Can't wait to try!
  8. Thanks Aelinn! I am! I've been taking two types of probiotics nightly for a while now. I also drink a GT's kombucha every day. I have a scoby to start making my own kombucha again, but just haven't yet. I should start that tonight! I've never had live pickles before. I will search for them. I would love your method for method for carrot pickles if you happen to stubble on it again. Thank you!
  9. I've been struggling with gut health for a decade and a half now. I've been through the gamut of tests and possibilities. Conclusion: All roads lead to my diet! The major issue is that my digestive system, MY GUT, has been abused and neglected so often for so long that it is quite difficult to pinpoint what foods are troubling me and what are not. I recently went on two month long candida diet to battle a candida overgrowth in my gut, which I got under control. YAY! But right after this I fell back into old eating habits. I also had a small surgery that left me pretty inactive for two mon
