  1. Overall I'd say this challenge went well. I've been getting back to lifting and my foot is behaving itself with amping up my running a bit. I've also been doing a lot more walking lately which might be helping with my general foot/ankle strength, who knows. The class that I'm taking finishes tomorrow, and I can't say I'm going to miss having my Wednesday nights eaten up by class and having to do readings and homework! I think I'm going to keep the same goals for the next challenge, and focus on lifting heavy and building strength for the next 6 weeks or so, and then switch over to a more sport
  2. I wish I had seen this sooner, because Unfuck Your Habitat has an emergency cleaning plan/list that's saved me more than once https://www.unfuckyourhabitat.com/emergency-cleaning/
  3. I don't know about you, but the thing that gets me to run in cold weather is the fact that it's my chance to go for a run without being soaked in sweat within 30 seconds
  4. I really like the way you're doing microhabits, and have cues to help you remember to do them. I'm going to be thinking about how to incorporate that into my own attempts at habit building!
  5. So the last time I posted was a week ago, I've continued to be busy since then! We got a bit of snow last week, although it's warmed up enough that the snow has melted (it's been sitting just above freezing the last few days). But I took that as my cue to get my balcony furniture put away for the winter, so that happened last week over the course of a couple mornings/evenings before and after work (because of the snow I had to bring things inside in stages to dry off and then get put away). Besides that there's been the usual life-maintenance stuff of vacuuming and laundry and cleaning and all
  6. Had a busy weekend, but had a lot of fun. I went to bed at 10pm on Sunday, who am I?! Yesterday I had yoga after work, and had a late night, and this morning I got up and went to the gym and did weights and my phsyio-approved running and phsyio-mandated exercises. Tonight I need to get a bit of work done on an assignment for an intro to business analysis class that I'm taking and then I'm going to bed!
  7. So last week I don't think I met any of my goals except maybe doing physio once and going to bed at 11pm once. This week I went to the gym on Wednesday and also ran, and have done my physio once. I've also done yoga 3x in the last 2 weeks (but that's not a goal) - I can now reach my back foot in King Pigeon and the twisted version of Dragon pose Twisted Dragon King Pigeon - I'm somewhere around step 3-4 of this when I do it, can't hook my foot in my elbow yet!
  8. Finally made a new challenge thread! https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/115089-maegs-is-15-minutes-late-with-starbucks/
  9. Goals are the same as last time, plus doing the Doodlies challenge: Sleep - a classic. I want to be in bed by 11pm every most nights (let's be realistic) Gym - go to the gym. Lift some things. Go three times a week, switch over to Starting Strength so I can get back to my barbells <3 Running - Keep doing my physio-approved 1 min on/1 min off attempts at running. Build back up to running properly if my foot cooperates Physio - do my physio stretching/exercises 3-4 times per week I'll post an update o
  10. it looks like the teams are even right now, so coin flip says waffles (although I'll be at a pancake breakfast this morning, shh!)
  11. Since Thanksgiving weekend I’ve been sick and busy and haven’t worked out at all except for 1 yoga class (#selfcare ?). But I’m feeling better and going to get back to the gym with the next challenge!
  12. Oh no I didn’t see this! I’ll add myself to a team and get started!
  13. “What Tank said” - Ranger proverb Also I think it makes sense to get new washer/dryer/dishwasher in NZ rather than hauling yours across the ocean with you - you might even get a place that comes with those machines already! I know that happens here as people don’t want the fuss of moving all those big things, especially as we tend to have our laundry in the basement in Canada. And then you won’t have the cost of shipping yours, and the difficulty of trying to get parts and all of that stuff you mentioned
  14. Still so cool! If by “cultivated a hedge” you mean “my dad took the clippers to the hedge and chopped a whole bunch off when it got too higgledy-piggledy and offended my type-A mom”, then yes, I have seen a hedge be cultivated
  15. HAI I kept meaning to update and then forgetting! What week is it even? Week 1 Physio - Yes! Sleep - Mostly! (6/7) Gym - Yes! Running - Yes! Week 2 Physio - Yes! Sleep - Not so good (3/7) Gym - Yes! Running - Sort of! (1/3 due to sore foot) Week 3 Physio - Half done! Sleep - Bad! (1/7) Gym - Yes! Running - Yes! (2/3) Week 4 Physio - Half done! Forgot because of not running Sleep - Not so good (3/7) Gym - Yes! Running - Sort of! (1/3 cause I got sick)
