  1. Day 1: Nothing on my challenge, did level 1A of the Core Performance workout, which I've restarted because so far it's been the only thing that decreases my lower back pain. Day 2: Did Day 1 of the Darebee Foundation Light program, level 2. Quest 1: Made a meal plan and grocery list, using the NFA level 4 meal plan Quest 2: Bought groceries Quest 3: Prepped the meat that I bought - broiled hamburgers, chopped up stew meat, and separated the 5 lbs. of chicken I bought into 1 lb. bags. Quest 4: Made dinner - rotisserie chicken, green beans, microwaved sweet potato I feel pretty good about ge
  2. I’ve been so overwhelmed by all the recent changes in my life that after failing my previous two challenges, I took the last challenge off. I still tried to keep up with my movement as much as possible; not always as successfully as I wanted, but I didn’t give it up altogether either, which is very different from my old patterns. I don’t want to miss another challenge, though, so even if I’m a couple of days late, I’m back. And this challenge is all about the food. My food has not been going well since the move. For so long my kitchen did not feel at all functional. As a result, I ha
  3. I loved seeing your vacation photos. It all looks like fun. Chichen Itza is on my epic quest of awesome list. That glamour shot of you in the red dress lives up to its billing. Very old Hollywood glamorous!

Life Quest: Nope Felt pretty awful on Sunday, so I slept really late and was just sluggish all day. The walk on Saturday was really nice, though; the area the trail goes through is very pretty, the weather was gorgeous, and people smiled and said "Good morning" all along the trail. It felt like we brought a little bit of our Austin experience back

Also saw some friends I hadn't seen
  7. As always, I'm impressed by your capabilities. And also by your willingness to be brutally honest, with yourself and here with us, about where you are and what you have to do to get where you want to be.

  9. I'm so sorry about your kitty. That just sucks.
  10. So I read that same article last night, plus a couple of others. They reiterate what I've heard, that it's not the henna that's a problem, it's additives like mineral salts (and lead!) that some manufacturers put in the henna. The place I get it from, Henna for Hair, uses only pure henna which is certified to be free of additives, so I'm not concerned. I wouldn't buy it from just any place, though.
  11. I'll have to try buckwheat. I've had buckwheat crepes, but that's the sum total of my buckwheat experimentation. Millet is a favorite of mine, but I'd like to try some other grains.
  12. Finally found you and caught up on your thread after my moving adventures! You are doing awesome things, as always. I loved your pics and captions in your original post. And I totally think you should get a creepy puppet backpack to run with.
