  1. Well, I've been doing pretty badly. I got up and walked the dogs some last week so I was moving at least and have been eating kind of generally not horribly...but I've not been doing my best. Going on a 15 minute walk twice a week and just kind of trying to stay under 2000 calories isn't really making much of a difference at all, especially when it's summer and I'm just sitting at home. Tried to do better tonight because I'm at a hotel with a fitness center and was on an elliptical all of 7 minutes before quitting. I just felt INSANELY out of shape. It was so hard to get going...and that's rea
  2. Thank you so much! i'm thrilled to be teaching at the high school level at all, since so often they make brand new teachers start out with junior high and work their way up. And the administration there has already been so sweet to me...even just leaving the interview, the lady who will be my principal prayed with me, which was so unbelievably awesome. Housing is very cheap in this entire state, so that's a relief (a duplex or a two bedroom apartment runs around $600-700, so that's what I'm looking at even though I'm on my own) but the problem is that this is a town of about 10,000 people, so
  3. Ok, so I have pretty much failed all of my challenge points this week. Hoping to start up again today. I was supposed to have 5 job interviews in one week. The closest place I was interviewing was about 90 minutes from my house. So I went there Monday, where I was still doing kind of okay. I hadn't worked out Sunday or Monday because I'd been busy and because I hit my head behind the ear on the corner of a car door, so it hurt to even move my neck. Tuesday I went to one job interview, and then on the way to the next I was in a car wreck that totaled my car (I was hit in an intersec
  4. Been slacking a bit because it's been crazy! i did walk a lot friday so i hit the 3 workouts a week goal. been slacking on the low-carb thing and the other life goals, but i have been eating healthier in general. i want to get out and work out more asap but i had a job interview 2 hours away this morning and I have three more interviews about 2 hours away from my house....all in different places...in the next two days, so this will get interesting!
  5. Thank you! Yeah, I figure now is the best chance I've got to get started for who knows how long, and then it'll be easier to maintain the habits when I am busy working. I have a hard time remembering to read it, too, and I really need to be doing better about that! That would be awesome, thank you! I'm going to do a mission trip in Hungary and Austria in a few weeks, so the more I know the better. I'm only spending 5 days in German speaking areas, but I'm also flying in and out of Munich, so I'd at least like to able to get around without being totally terrified and lo
  6. Well, I tried to do week 2 day 1 of C25k and failed. I got a little over halfway through and just...stopped running. I couldn't bring my legs to do it any more. I don't even know why? I had done literally one circuit of the beginner bodyweight workout last night and that's all I can think of that would have made it so difficult. Still, I walked home so I got in my workout. I still feel pretty crummy, though, for not being able to do it. I really don't know if running is even the kind of workout I like to do, but I'm bad at everything else I've tried, too, so I'm not sure what to t
  7. It's so awesome how you're doing so well! I love how detailed and organized your goals and updates are. And I'm seriously impressed that you've been doing so well with keeping up with working out every day, that's always the hardest part for me.
  8. I'm so sorry that you're not feeling well!! It can be hard to persevere through stuff like that, but it's awesome that you've still been making it to class and are making progress towards your (metaphorical ) thousand pushups! I'm impressed by your determination and dedication to this goal. Keep moving forward, and don't let the small slipups get you down.
  9. I kind of took the weekend off and ate a lot of carby things, but I also walked around most of the day Saturday. Last night I went to a small group thing with a group from my church, where I knew literally nobody, so that was my big personal challenge of the weekend. Even though making new post-grad friends isn't one of my official challenge goals, it's definitely something that's been worrying me, so I was relieved that doing that went well and now I know some new people! Then I rewarded myself for being brave and doing that by eating a giant thing of curly fries, which I knew was not the hea
  10. The samba sounds like so much fun! Can I ask what kinds of things you're bringing to work for lunch? I always have the hardest time coming up with things to take so I end up copping out and just buying a sandwich from Walmart or something, lol.
  11. Yesterday I had two low carb meals and started off the day by completing my first C25k workout I had to skip one of the jogs in the middle but other than that and a few other moments where I lost momentum I did it!
  12. Today I did pretty much nothing but sit around and play Sims 3 all day. I just felt gross and kind of ill, not sure why, but I think the culprit is PMS :/ It also isn't helping that I went from waking up at 6:30 then teaching all day from 8-3:20 then doing projects/finals and constantly hanging out of friends to....sitting at home alone all day with only my dogs until my parents get home. Tomorrow, though, I have to get up and go to the dentist (which is going to be the highlight of my week, if that tells you how boring summer is for me :P) anyway so I think I'll get up early and try c25k aga
  13. I worked out last night doing Darebee's Foundation program on Level 1, and that was almost too easy, so today I tried to start C25K. I made it most of the way through the workout, but with a little more walking than you're supposed to do, before calling it quits with about 2 minutes of the actual workout and the cooldown left. I had only used one pump of my inhaler and then underestimated the humidity outside, so breathing was getting iffy. I think that's also because I forget to breathe when I'm focused on other things, whoops. Working on that stuff. I did a little yoga last nigh
  14. Thank you so much!!! Yeah, I have kind of tried rock climbing before, but it turns out for whatever reason I have a phobia of climbing things?? Even ladders have given me trouble before, haha. But I'm trying to work through it, so I've been looking for chances to do that when I hike. I'm going to use Duolingo for German, and as for Hungarian...I had a friend giving me lessons, but I'm not sure if we have time for that any more, so who knows!! Thank you so much I really appreciate the encouragement.
