  1. It's my birthday! We celebrated as a family over the weekend, and my and my husband are going to celebrate our birthdays together with family on the 21st. My kids made me cute drawings and my husband gave me a donation for the new computer I'm saving for. My current one keeps freezing and BSOD'ing on me, despite all my attempts to fix it. It's probably a hardware problem. The challenge is going well so far. I really didn't want to work out yesterday, so I did it anyway. Food could be a little better, but it's that time of the month, and my birthday, so I'm going to give myself some slack here. My head said no to reading the last couple of days. I'm sure I'll get back into it. I think I need to lower my goal to reading one sentence a day. That might get things going again.
  2. LOL my 12 year old writes the most awkward responses, and just assumes others know what he's talking about.
  3. Hi! I'm doing really well, how about you? The boys are growing up so fast. Peter just started secondary school
  4. It's been a while since I was on the forums. But it's good to be back!
  5. Here to cheer you on! 800 Book is impressive! #goals
  6. Hi there! Glad to see you're slaying already. Keep up the good work!
  7. Hi there! Long time no see I've been AWOL for a few years, but I'm finally ready to come back. Older and, hopefully, wiser. So here are my goals for this challenge: Food: Back to kcal counting It seems to be the easiest way to get my weight in check. I'm using EatThisMuch to help me this time instead of MFP, which for some reason does weird stuff with my head (trying to eat too little and then binge when I can't anymore). This app seems healthier in it's way to have you stay on course. I'll be sticking to aproximately 1800 kcal. Slow and steady wins the race. Movement: keep on moving, 3 times a week I've been exercising 3 times a week for a while now. Some weeks are better than others. I've got a membership to a fitness center where they do circuit training: all the equipement is in a circle and after 40 seconds you have to switch to the next one. 3 rounds of that is 30 minutes. I started there in April. And it was fun, but it's getting boring now, so I need a little accountablity on that front. I've also been working out at home when I didn't want to people. Life: Read! I've been unable to sit down an read for a long time: I just read the same sentence over and over again and my mind just didn't want to cooperate. But lately I've been able to read again, so that's what I'm going to do! For 20 minutes each day. It has to be a book. Or a magazine. A hard copy of something. Yup that's it. Let's go!!!!
  8. I've been feeling a bit under the weather. Possibly because all this rain I keep having to bike through The price for living in the Netherlands (although I hear England is even worse ) Husband has been working from home this week, because of the second corona wave our country is experiencing. I like having him around all day The boys are loving it too: so much attention from dad
  9. I you're worried she'll get out of her room: you can turn the door handles, so the face up. It worked like a charm for my boys. The worst thing that can happen is she doesn't fall asleep in her bed. You can always carry her back in if that happens
  10. I hope you'll have a lovely relaxing time
  11. Last Saturday we had Peter's kids party. Secret agent style I had purchased a kids party schedule and just followed that with a few adjustments when necessary. The kids had a lot of fun doing all the games, and Peter had a great time with his friends I had purchased party glasses and fake mustaches. The kids looked so cute! I was exhausted afterwards, but I'm glad I could give him a good birthday party
  12. This is a relieve So REST. Don't exercise yet. Focus on nutrition to make your body heal. Exercise is only like 10% of the equation anyways. I actually just read an article in the newspaper saying that covid will make flu season less severe than other years. Possible reasons for that, they listed: due to covid people are being more hygienic, wearing masks, keeping distance and such. When there is already a virus going round people's antibody's are already on the alert, so flu doesn't have much of a chance. And people that would get severely sick from the flu are most likely already killed by covid. This last point is a sad one, but valid nonetheless. So no need to get anxious about this, just take care of yourself and your family Lots of hugs back to you
  13. This just got recommended to me on YouTube. I thought you guys might appreciate it too
  14. Try to make pancakes with it. They will be the best you'll ever have!
  15. My thoughts exactly. But husband wants him back in his life. So I suck it up and be polite when he comes over. Husband does know what I think of him though, but he is like 'yeah, he's always been a dick' and is at peace with it, because there is nothing he can do to change him.
  16. My goto is oat milk. It tastes ten times better than almond milk when combined with coffee. Also I add a drop of vanilla extract to make it taste extra fancy
  17. Well, like like Valkyrie said, it's not fine because pandemic and all. And he was a real dick when leaving my MIL for this Russian woman*. So I have a strong dislike for the man. This didn't help. *He didn't tell my MIL he found another woman until he left to pick her up from the airport. He had his suitcase packed and an apartment rented already. My MIL didn't saw it coming at all. It was a real cowardly move. He's always been a coward, but this was low, even for him. I think our prime minister was the one that introduced us to it. I don't know where it originated. But I think it's smart Thank you I think so too. He doesn't always believe me when I tell him, but he's really awesome Aw, thank you You're right. I need to remember this
