  1. Got sick, really sick. Still have a heavy cough. Going to have to hit the re-do button as soon as I shake this.
  2. Got through the first meal out unscathed. Tracking going well and I have a workout planned for tomorrow morning. So far, no stress eating either. I think I’m keeping myself busy enough so that helps. Also don’t have binge-type foods around.
  3. Totally forgot when I set up this challenge that I had an Anime Convention to go to. We didn't cosplay this year so, it was not on my radar like it had been past years. So, I didn't get in anymore workouts but I did okay with tracking. Sunday was a complete rest day. I napped twice and order delivery. I must have needed it because I still got 8 hours of sleep last night even with all the naps. My Week One Recap: 2 out of 3 Dancing workouts B- for Tracking Weight within half a pound of goal ..... Week 2 Goals/Plans Worked out this
  4. Hi! Great job with the meditation! 10 days in a row makes me think you've turned it into a habit.
  5. Maybe next month we can do a burpee Accountability challenge? I bet you were just as thrilled! That is fantastic! Good Job Rocco!!!
  6. My Week 1 Days 1-3 Dancing: Two (2) fun workouts so far. I just danced and did cardio kickboxing one day and then the second day started on the indoor bike but I decided to do some bodyweight work and dance in between sets. Tracking: Much better. I've made a good grocery list for the rest of the week and have some healthy snack options already prepared. That always makes it easier. I got on the scale today because I could tell that the water weight was gone. I'm down 1.5 pounds just from getting the sugar back under control. Honestly, I feel like I'll be back to
  7. Thank you! I fell in love with the spirals right away.
  8. @ElizeElvinFoxRyder 2 new rings from the Irish Festival. Couldn’t help myself. And look, I still have decent fingernails!
  9. Starting late! I wasn’t sure I wanted to do one because of the timing of other things in my life. Then one of those “things”, the Irish Festival, gave me inspiration. I was dancing and bouncing around while watching some of my favorite Irish a Fest bands and my friend mentioned what a great workout we were getting. I think we say that to each other every year, but I never put the thought to good use. So this challenge is about music and dance. I am going to use music that motivates me to move and then just go with it. I may dance, do jumping jacks, pushups, etc. Whatever I’
  10. Got sick. About halfway through my shift at work I felt it coming on. Finished my day then I was down for the rest of the weekend. Last night I was able to eat again, which was lovely. So, not the ending I wanted but overall I’m happy with the challenge. Don’t know if I’ll do the next challenge. I need to decide if this format still provides the extra push I’m looking for. If I do decide to join the next one I know it will be late since I have a big family weekend coming up. I’ll figure it out next week. Best if luck to everyone one in their next endeavor
  11. Tracking: Strict tracking is becoming mindful eating. I’m not sure why but I feel like I’m managing it well. I’ve been eating freely, weighing myself to stay accountable and tracking a couple days a week for further accountability.  Exercise 3x a week: 1 decent workout. Going to ride my bike today.  Medicine/Supplements: Good here. Missed one day.  Stop biting my nails: Fantastic!  Floor sitting: Meh. I’m doing okay but let this slip. Working on it as I type this.  Mind Palace: Pretty good here. When I shelve books or stra
  12. Sorry I’ve been absent and missed so much. I’m glad you are safe and that your Angel was watching over you.
  13. Now I get it... I've been stressed about my daughter's health. Won't go into specifics because she is an adult and I don't want to share her story. But, it all came to the surface yesterday and I ended up binge-eating like it was my job. Even though eating to cope with stress is not a habit I want to indulge I also knew exactly what I was doing and just let it go. I feel SO much better today and ready to shake off the stress and just get on with things.
  14. Week 3 Day 3-5  Strict Tracking: Shark Week. I always give myself a day or two off when it comes to food. Went back to tracking yesterday.  Exercise 3x a week: DH and I traded in our fancy, but oldish, bikes for new ones. Took a ride today.  Medicine/Supplements: Good.  Stop biting my nails: Good.  Floor sitting: Lots!  Mind Palace: Not much. I lost momentum on this. I’ll look to finish strong week 4.
