  1. Fruit/Veggies: A Still been doing well with this! On top of smoothies I finally got around to making my lunch for work last week and ensured I had at least a serving of veggies included. Water: C I haven't done as well with water this past week. I find it a lot more challenging to drink water at work as I don't want to be running to the bathroom all the time. And I forget to fill up my water bottle. Stretching: F Yikes. Still not doing this. Budget: B I'm doing well with the app but I'm not sticking to it as much as the first we
  2. So far, so good! I haven't been precisely keeping track of my daily goals on paper but I've been tracking them mentally, which is about as much effort as I feel like giving right now: Fruit/Veggies: B+ I have been mostly good with my daily smoothie but have missed a few days while on break & without my usual schedule. Overall though, I'm feeling good about this! Water: B Pretty much the same as the fruit/veggie goal, a few more missed days. Stretching: F Whoops! I haven't done this goal at all. Honestly, I think I know how much flexibility
  3. Starting late but excited for this focus! Day One: + Fruit/Veggie: I had a smoothie for breakfast AND lunch, so about 3 servings total. - Water: I finished about half of a water bottle - Stretch: We are having a hard time remembering to do this ~~ this will be a good kick in the pants! Budget: I have an app downloaded I tried to use a few months ago. I liked it but didn't utilize it well. Back at it.
  4. Daily Challenge Goals: 1 Veggie/1 Fruit --> Building back my health after weeks of illness and a round of antibiotics. My husband and I are challenging ourselves to drink one fruit/veggie smoothie each day. 1 Water Bottle --> Rehydrating & revitalizing by drinking one full bottle of water each day Stretch Session --> Reigniting progress toward calm mind, calm body. My husband is interested in trying yoga for the first time ever so we are starting with stretching! Goal: ~10 minutes each afternoon Level-Up Goal:

    Welp, I haven't made it to the starting line quite yet. I still feel like I'm coming out of the November fog and trying to catch up on life I pushed aside. But that's okay! This may just end up being another low-key challenge. Something I did do today is set up a really basic budget tracker through an app. Based on my income and monthly expenses combine with a monthly savings goal and a couple future savings goals, I can spend about $16/day on personal stuff. It may not be detailed enough for long-term use but I kind of like the general money pit that I can spend on w
  6. We're in the same boat! I fell apart last challenge but am back for something really simple this time. Good luck.

    Okay then. November was . . . rough. There were some incredibly wonderful moments, but a lot of very difficult moments as well. I let go of things for a while just to keep my head on straight. I woke up this morning feeling ready to get back into a challenge, and am excited to see that one hast just begun! I'm keeping this one pretty simple. There are about a million things I want to do yet I know that picking a few essentials will be best. Here's a really great thing that I've realized about myself: I don't need to look at exercise as purely for weight loss, muscle building

    Alright, hello world! Apparently I needed a 2-week break, which is just fine by me. Didn't really follow any challenge rules, but I have adjusted my goals a little bit and am ready to get back into it. We pushed ourselves to do a lot of housework this weekend. It's starting to feel under control again. Instead of just focusing on the kitchen I have decided to focus again on the whole house. We want to have friends over for dinners and movies and having a clean house will feel good. I am starting to struggle a bit with going to my yoga studio. I love it and have enjoyed

    @LittleTurtle gotcha. I started taking Prozac in the summer and I'm amazed at how much it has helped, but feel myself starting to get low again. Maybe I'll try a lamp...

    I have been taking my D3 again as well and I think it helps a little. I am seriously considering getting one of the lamps. I walked by one in a store one time and it was pretty amazing. How did you go about getting a prescription from your doc?
  11. I can't get it to quote, but hooray for not using weight loss as the only measure of success! When I finally gave that up (for reals) it was ridiculously liberating. It has its place, but at some point I just love the intuitiveness of paying attention to how my clothes fit and my energy levels. Great challenge!

    Thank you @Vibrantella! I haven't been 100% on any of my goals yet, but some wins: -Husband and I did some major cleaning of the kitchen after letting it get messy again. We also talked through some plans for "fixing up" a few areas of the house. -I have gone out with friends twice in the past week and had half a pint of cider each time. It worked well, and I was naturally ready to stop drinking after half the glass. -This is my first Halloween as a true vegan. I slipped a few times at work last week when I was feeling miserable and had a few min

    Me neither! I could use about a week of sleep Thank you! Trying something new and unfamiliar but hoping it leads me in a good direction. I've been off the past few days -- aside from the sickness -- and haven't been able to figure out why. I think there are two possible sources of the funk. 1. I forgot to take my meds twice last week and it seems to have completely thrown things off. All my anxiety I had been working to understand just came flooding at me so strongly. It's pretty amazing to be reminded of how I was feeling before, and it ma

    I have stayed home sick the past two days and have been in a general funk since last week. A combo of the changing weather, sinus issues, and general fatigue. I considered skipping the challenge this time around but after a few days off realized how much they help me create a reflective space for my self-awareness. This time around I'm practicing the idea that my goals have nothing to do with weight loss, self-improvement, fitting into certain clothes, setting a deadline, etc. I'm really digging Pema Chodron's concept that we can look exactly the way we look while focusing on comp

    I am learning to stay put -- to love myself exactly as I am. This fall is about sticking with myself to go deeper into who I already am rather than envisioning someone I want to become. I have never lived simply as myself without aspirations to be better. Instead of setting goals to improve, I'm setting goals to cultivate a healthy, wholesome life. Soul: •Stretch 5 minutes/day •1 Fit Deck flash card each day Body: •Continue avoiding eliminated foods/drinks •No fruit-type candy (i.e. skittles, jolly ranchers, etc.) Mind: •Practice min
