  1. I am thinking about doing the next challenge with the same quests I tried last time as it sounds doable right now. There was a sudden need of surgery in the family so my challenge would have failed probably even though I hadn't had shoulder issues. Now things seem to have calmed down a bit so I should be able to concentrate on my quests starting next week and also my shoulder seems to be fine now. Next thing is to do another thread in the newer challenge forums, once I am done I'll link it here.
  2. Thank you really much for asking, I've meant to answer to your message forever! My challenge went south soon after the start when I felt that I had major collection of fluid both in my left elbow, wrist and right shoulder. This meant I was able to do pretty much none of the things in my challenge except the side quest. I got my rheumatologist appointment so that it was a week or so ago and I got four cortisone + lidocaine injections into those joints plus a med change that should help in the long run. The bad thing is that I am still recovering as my joints feel nasty ("hey, the silly doctor s
  3. 4. Sort of not sure, in a way it's good that there's not too many goals but I'd maybe like some variation in terms of goals 5. Definitely a good thing for me to do, interests me in terms of trying new things 6. This isn't something that interests me, might not be also possible depending on my injuries/pain situation and topic so might not suit all if theme isn't fitting for my current health 7. Unfortunately not possible in my current life situation
  4. That sounds like a great thing for me as I have injured pretty much every part of my body except my left shoulder at least once and also suffer from chronic pain and neck+back issues making occasionally exercise selection hard.
  5. Your goals sound really great and support each other really well! Sometimes balancing busy university life with exercise and "life outside the university" seems like a huge balancing act but your goals seem realistic so there's no reason why you shouldn't succeed. Edited to add: Otherwise good but I answered to this old thread, apparently time to head to sleep.
  6. What type of dissertation are you doing? Good luck for your challenge as well!
  7. After a short break I am here again (I totally missed when the last two challenges started, ugh!) I am now level 3 without having updated my charts below but I'll do that tomorrow. The new twists in life are me being now home 100 % time writing my thesis so I have more time to put in exercising and healing from the burn out than before. It's good as my current challenge is designed to help with that. My right shoulder which I injured 1,5 years ago has been worse so I need to take this into the account as well as the tiredness from the burn out. Quest 1: Running/biking Running or exercise bik
  8. Aquatic therapy sounds interesting, can you tell me more about it? Yep, after missing out two challenges (managed to slip past the start time, ugh) I am back again!
  9. Well, to sum up overall in this challenge I did well, I just happened to forget my login information to here so I wasn't able to update. My first goal was exercising 3 times per day and it ended up being mostly exercise bike. That I managed to do 15/18 times which is bit disappointing since the misses happened on the first week of the challenge when I had a flu so I wasn't able to do anything about it later. My second goal was warm ups and cool downs and that I managed also to do 15/18 times. The fourth thing was physiotherapy: that I did 17/18 times, one I missed due to the cortisone injec
  10. Good work! It's also good that you already know how you might do even better next time no matter how well you did now. I try to remember to find you from the assassins, I'll be sticking in the scouts in next challenge. Try to survive from your family, that can be scary.
  11. Baking fruits into something or making them into smoothie would work well! I have to try that in next challenge, then I'll try to up my fruit and vegetable intake to two doses per day minimum now that I have one all covered in this challenge!
  12. How has been everybody doing? I've been doing quite slowly, burn out hit but I've been trying to be mindful about my time use which has helped. That's why I've learned to recognize helpful patterns when it comes to realizing what triggers panic attacks, what kinds of daily schedules work and what not and what activities make me help better. This has allowed me to plan how to do things making me succeed in my challenge. So yay for that!
  13. It's good that you are letting go of perfectionism, it usually doesn't lead to good when overdone. Ask me how I know.. Any progress towards the right way is great work. I will probably in the next challenge decide to cut down sugary foods, now after the burn out I've noticed a totally new-to-me need to eat them. I don't know if I am eating in an attempt to make myself happier or what but I don't like eating unhealthy food so that will be one of my goals. It's good that you have hopped back on the wagon after letting go since that's the way you build good healthy habits rather than giving up
  14. How are you doing now? Did the med changes top messing your body or are you fine?
