  1. Thanks!! My goal was to finish by the end of 2017 and I was on schedule to make it. Then I messed up my Achilles tendon in November and that slowed things down. Still finishing a little more than a week into 2018 isn't too bad.
  2. I hope you feel better soon, Snarky!
  3. I agree that the food sounds awesome so I hope you enjoyed it at least. I'm glad you enjoyed your workout once you got there. I'm really trying to avoid thinking of exercise as a punishment. I've found things that I enjoy doing so it's something that I "get" to do instead of something that I "have" to do. I'm not totally there yet, but I've made progress. It's really amazing the difference a change in words can make.
  4. Excellent way to salvage your evening! And congratulations on finding a new restaurant! I am actually not surprised that you haven't gained anything. You always lose when you try to maintain. I think you need to adjust how many calories you think you need, because obviously you're burning more than you think. I really wish I was having that "problem". [emoji6]
  5. Hormones can definitely mess things up. Oddly enough my last two shark weeks have had little to no emotional symptoms, only physical ones. It's been really nice. I haven't been able to do the StartBodyweight program 3x in a week. The constantly changing reps and exercises means that something is always sore for a couple of days. But I have managed to add a kettlebell workout a couple of times. It definitely works well as an addition.
  6. We went to see Dr. Strange. It was really good. I agree that it's nice to have that junky meal sometimes. We only go to the movies about every 2-3 months so I don't see any reason not to enjoy it when we do. The healthy meal actually felt really good after that too, like I really needed it after all the junk.
  7. Friday, November 18, 2016 I'm feeling a good bit better today, though I'm still struggling with fatigue. I did my routines, though I took it easy with most things and was a little slower getting things done. I didn't want to miss a strength workout this week and lose progress again, so I decided to do the Startbodyweight workout. Rather than stick with a certain amount of rest between sets though I just rested until I felt like I was ready again. That did make the workout a little longer but it worked and I was able to complete the workout. I think I'm going to do that from now on.
  8. And here is this week so far. Monday, November 14, 2016 Morning Routine Morning home maintenance stuff was done Twist & Align yoga routine Tried a new mobility video call Hip Mobility 1. It was more of an instruction video and there was really only one stretch and I had to stretch the other side after the video. There are two more of these (hip mobility 2 and 3). If the other two are the same I'll probably put together the three stretches as a mobility option. Cultivating Patience meditation, 6 minutes. Really need this one, I hope it helps.
  9. Okay, here's the rest of last week's updates Saturday, November 12, 2016 Morning Routine Morning home maintenance stuff was done 15 minute Beginner Flexibility yoga routine NF Yoga Wrist Mobility. Energize meditation practice, 5 minutes. This did not seem to energize me, it made me sleepy. I was tired today so I did a 10 minute walk for my exercise Afternoon Routine The rest of the home maintenance stuff was done I dusted for the daily cleaning Non-routine stuff I finished with 12,185 steps I stuck with my pl
  10. Glad to have you! I saw your post in Chronologically Blessed and hoped that meant you were back.
  11. Your trip sounds awesome and like it was just what you needed!
  12. Thanks! Making cards is one of my hobbies. I tried scrapbooking with actual paper a long time ago, but never really got into it because I hated cutting the pictures. When I started scrapping on the computer I still had a bunch of paper supplies and needed something to do with them. Making cards is a lot of fun. I haven't actually bought a greeting card in years. Of course I'm not saving any money because I spend more on craft supplies than I ever did on cards! [emoji6] As for the steps I'm getting what anyone would call a small amount right now. Stupid crud!
  13. Sounds like you're doing well! Glad you peeked out of hiding so I could find you!
  14. Sounds like a good week! I love shopping at Ikea, but hubby always ends up frustrated and/or annoyed by the end.
  15. Congratulations! It feels really good when things start coming together again.
