  1. BACK TO THE GYM! oh gosh. I missed it. Treadmill Work 308 calories burned 45 minutes 1.35 miles
  2. There was no gym trip yesterday or tonight. I did get some spring cleaning started yesterday, though! We also began piling up all the cleaning supplies because I am going to do ALL THE CLEANING. It's kind of funny because I have NEVER liked cleaning. I still kind of don't, but there is something I've noticed and actually either recently read or watched a video about that cleaning is actually really good when you're feeling down or going through a bad depression stint. The feeling of accomplishment is actually very good for your mood and I will definitely agree with this
  3. March 12, 2018 Treadmill Work 226 calories burned 35 minutes 1.15 miles Oh, yeah. And after most of these workouts, I indulge in a delightful chair message or a hydromassage. Tonight was a chair massage and MMMM INTENSITY LEVEL 6 KNOCKING AND KNEADING. Yes, please. Still bummed I can't TURN IT UP TO ELEVEN. :|
  4. Everything is with a machine! I may have overdone that because BOY HOWDY ARE MY BICEPS STILL CRYING. @______@
  5. My goal is to definitely chatter in here on a daily basis. Even if it's to say "Hi! I took a nap today!" or that I managed to finish four loads of laundry when I'm not posting things about the gym/working out/general health hubbub! So, back in February, my Step-dad and I joined our local gym. Since then, we were going every other day. I did skip a few days because 1) I wasn't feeling all that great mentally or physically or 2) I was feeling lazy. Lately, I have been far more diligent at pushing myself to go. Even if I'm feeling mentally exhausted or gross, I go because
  6. HI FOLKS! Sassyfrassy (formally known as RoseofMay, names if with the world sparkle in them, and probably a slew of other things because I am truly the most indecisive hummingbird ever!) here! I haven't been around the NF forums for a while. I did come back very briefly at the beginning of 2018, but that petered out very quickly. I'm happy to say that, despite my initial challenge for the new year didn't get anywhere, I've been making positive changes. So, I wanted to make another change and come back to the NF Rebels to share, chat about things, and offer s
  7. OH HEY So here is DAY TWO: Morning: SLEEP~~~~ Afternoon: 1 Tim Horton’s K-Cup Dark Roast Coffee 2 TBSPs hazelnut creamer 1 all-beef corndog 2 soft pretzels 1 TBSP yellow mustard Veggie medley of carrots, red peppers, and cucumbers 1 TBSP greek feta dressing Evening: 1 cup scalloped potatoes with peas and baked ham 1 cranberry ginger ale 1 butterscotch scone 1 turkey sammich with 1 tbsp mayo and hot banana pepper rings 1 bag of popcorn 6 glasses of wat
  8. OH MAN. Speaking of feet and stretching -- I woke up this morning and just did some light ankle rotations and flexing of my foot and toe stretches. It feels SO DAMN GOOD. Just sitting on the side of your bed working it all out. MMMHMMM. It's like that little jump start of I CAN TAKE ON THE WORLD.
  9. So let us talk about Day One: I will confess that yesterday was a L A Z Y DAY. But you know what? THAT IS OKAY! We had been going FULL STEAM AHEAD for days prior, so a day that involved doing absolutely NOTHING? A+ in my book! And if you think about it? That was doing something FOR ME. I rolled out of bed when I felt like it after listening to some jams and just vegging. I even vegged in my room for most of the evening watching BOBS BURGERS on Netflix (THANK YOU NETFLIX CANADA) and typing away on my laptop with some good tunes. Food tracking HAPPENED. This is what it lo
  10. We ARE worth it and we forget that waaaay too often. THANK YOU! Thanks! I always try and make that a goal, but tend to fall off the bandwagon there. It's definitely never on purpose, but it happens. I'm going to make sure I really push myself to NOT forget about myself. Thank you!! I'm staying optimistic and positive the whole way! Thanks! I was kicking around getting back into challenges. I just needed a literal kick to come back.
  11. Thanks! Hoping to stay on track and keep things moving this year. Fingers crossed!
  12. Greetings! Sassyfrassy here. You could call me the artist formerly known as roseofmay, kelliestrasza, and other monikers. It has been quite some time since I've participated in a challenge, but the amazing @shaar made sure to poke me to start the new year right. So, here I am to do just that! I'm starting off small since I'm getting back into things. regrowth - establishing & learning I'm going to get back into tracking my food intake on a daily basis. I'll be able to see what I'm eating, what I'm not eating, and assess my mood and feeli

  15. So I have made the conscious decision that I am going to step out of this current challenge. There is no need to worry, though! I am fine and doing well. I am working on getting better with routines and time management. However, I'm working on adapting to quick changes more quickly to ensure that I maintain a working routine. I fully intend on revisiting this whole challenge, though, because I believe it will be beneficial moving forward. Just a quick update, though! My Mom is back from the states and she came back with a nasty case of bronchitis. We're making sure it's not turning
  16. An accurate representation of how my first week went. Sprained ankle, monstrous allergies, no sleep, new medication dosage, STRESS. There was a GOOD thing that happened, which was having my temporary residence/visitor visa approved for the entire 2017 year. We won't have to request an extension until the end of December, which gives us some time to try and get something more permanent in place. And something that allows me to leave Canada without the worry that I won't be able to come back in for another six months. BUT ALL IN ALL, my first week of this chal
  17. Yay for art stuff! I'm going to get working on some more things to share this time around. I always love looking at the things other people do. One thing I know I need to work on is not being my own worst critic. I feel like everything has to be so neat, precise, and perfect. I beat myself up so terribly if it's not. >_<
  18. OMG THAT CAT. I LOVE BEING ARTWORK BUDDIES! I didn't want to slack off and I was like LISTEN SELF. GET BACK INTO IT. <3
  19. Experience Tranquility! Why hello, Challenge #2! I'm glad that I have the challenge weeks on my calendar because it keeps me going! My first challenge of the year died off at the end. I was still (sort of?) tracking most of my food choices, but I could tell that I was only giving 50% of the effort. I realized that I don't really like putting heavy time constraints on myself. Having a routine is one thing, and something I am going to be working on, but I don't like doing things in time blocks. I am more of a "Make a List and Do each of the things as the
  20. I got the notification that this was posted thanks to Tapatalk and I was like NEW CHALLENGE UP? YESSSS. Of course I'm following. <3
  21. OH HI! UGH. My updates are getting TOO spread out! It's my own fault, though. But I'm not going to linger on that. NOPE. I've been doing a lot of thinking in the past few days about where I want to go with my future challenges, and things in general. With the work I've been doing around the house, I realized that I am getting some decent cardio and strength in my every day movement. Walking the stairs, vacuuming, dusting, mopping, lifting boxes, organizing, and just general cleaning gives me a lot of good and decent movement throughout my days. I've been beating myself
