  1. Hello all! Thank you so much for your support, sorry I've been quiet - busy (and very cold) weekend! Week one was a success! Yay, 1/4 of the way there! In my personally life, I've also been successful working on unpacking the house and getting things in order. (I unpacked my scale today - yikes the holidays hit hard lol.) So I'm feeling good both physically and mentally de-cluttering everything. I also got a new brita filter so my water bottle is constantly full of fresh clean water yum. I hope you are all having a great start this week.
  2. ♡℠it's snowing! â„♡

      Awhh, it's raining buckets here :(

    2. fitnessgurl


      Raining here too.

      aw, I honestly wouldn't mind rain. The snow is fun now, but it's supposed to drop to 9 degrees tonight lol.

  3. Thank you! Yes I love it, though think I need to tweak my recipe. I let it cook all day, but it still tastes a bit weak. Ah well, I'm learning as I go haha. Today was a good day - did more grocery shopping to stock up before (what is supposed to be) a super cold icy weekend. Got more veggies, sparkling water (my replacement for soda - no sugar! Just bubbles), and various essentials. Because I had so many stops I ended up walking LOTS, and I plan on doing more zumba tomorrow. Ooh, I also got a new Brita water pitcher and cucumbers so I can fill up my water bottle - making fresh cucumber water. Yummmm!
  4. I'm sorry you are feeling that way. I find that sometimes just having something like gum, or ice-cubes, or a good cup of coffee (SOMETHING in my mouth lol) help keeps the emotional binging at bay. Could always browse the NF forums too for inspiration to stay strong, or try meditation. (Taking some deep calming breaths to sort of clear your head and keep your thoughts from circling back to food helps.) I'm here if you need to vent or need a cheerleader haha. Today has gone pretty well for me. I got sparkling water at the store which squashes my soda cravings. (Yay!) And all the shopping I did gave me an excuse to walk around lots. \o/
  5. Today has gone really well. I did my zumba, lasting as long as I did before (about a half hour) but I'm hoping to push past that the next time. I feel like I am starting to get my rhythm, which is awesome, but I want to be able to do it for an hour - that way I could attend an actual zumba class, which run that length of time. Food was good today, I had a sort of mini-meals throughout the day deal - eating many healthy snacks instead of scheduled meals. I also made bone broth which I am very excited for, because this weekend it's supposed to be FREEZING, and it will be nice to have something to heat up & stay warm with. Tomorrow is shopping day for more veggies/fruits & snacks. Any recommendations?
  6. Thank you! Yeah, I definitely think at least a good chunk is mental. That confidence of "Yes, I totally take care of myself" haha. Thank you!
  7. I follow Bexlife (she is on youtube, & has a website) She has some great beginner's tools and guided meditations. I also love Grace Smith, though she is more on the holistic healing side of things - leans towards self-hypnosis rather than meditation. (Though they are super similar.) I tune into her periscope which she does a free guided session weekdays at 12 eastern, I believe? I usually catch the vids after she has done them. ANYWAY - yeah, as someone new to mediation, guides help a lot. (Also, lots of lovely resources in this thread, thank you!)
  8. Finally shaking the last of my migraine. Looking forward to working out tomorrow! :D

  9. Unfortunately migraines make me really dizzy, so even walking is tough haha. x_x But good news is I was able to be up and about today, so tomorrow I will resume my zumba! Today has gone well, I think drinking lots of water is definitely making my skin look good - I love it. Food as been pretty good today, I splurged a bit with a papa murphy's delite pizza - totally not paleo! However, I ate less than pizza than I normally would - and considering I haven't eaten a ton today, my calories are still a-ok! I am looking forward to more zumba tomorrow. \o/
  10. Yes! I got about a half hour into the first disc and I was dying lol. It is really fun though, and definitely harder than it looks! I am enjoying it. Oooh awesome job so far. For the drinks, instead of going cold turkey you could always switch out to diet options, or low fat/cal, etc. That might help with the cravings as you gradually stop drinking them or just in reducing your amount.
  11. Ok, so day two and I'm still on a roll! Ate a ton of veggies today and in general had good balanced foods. I need to catch up on water a bit, but I should still meet my goal by bedtime. I didn't work out today due to having a migraine (ow) but I am hoping to do more zumba either tomorrow or the next day - depending on when the last of this migraine leaves me.
  12. Woo! Great job so far. I haven't read Neverwhere, I'll have to give it a shot! I've been reading non-fiction lately with Big Magic, a great book about creativity - especially when it comes to writing. And I love what you've done with the progress bars - I might have to steal that idea haha.
  13. First couple days have been really good (ish). I've been on track with food, water, and activity. Unfortunately today was a bummer because I had a migraine and couldn't do too much, but I stayed on track! I look forward to shaking this thing and pressing on! Also, welcome more new faces! This place is starting to feel like a party.

    Zho Tests Her Courage

    Hiya Zho! Awesome job so far on your challenge, even though you had a little bit of a rough start you pushed through and are doing great things. I think your drawings look really cool by the way, I look forward to seeing more of them.
  15. Thank you! I appreciate it. I actually don't read and write as much as I used to, but I am slowly getting back into the habit. (Been reading 'Big Magic' by Elizabeth Gilbert - a great book on being creative, especially when it comes to writing.) Eventually I would love to write a book, been sort of a dream of mine since I was young. (Back when I devoured books in a single day haha.)
