  1. I have absolutely the worst track record when it comes to phones and liquid. Once I put a phone in a bag with a coca cola I apparently hadn't screwed the cap back onto thoroughly enough. Mess. Once I dropped my phone in the pool while I was cleaning out an intense algae growth. Mess AND retrieving it was a pain. One time I was doing dishes at Starbucks and the power washer sprayed all down my front (typical of me washing dishes, so I thought nothing of it at the time). My phone was, of course, in my apron pocket. And don't even get me started on the washing machine... Despite my affinity for marine life, water is definitely not my element. But seriously, my heartfelt empathy.
  2. You're doing great!! I'm so glad to hear you're having success with most of your goals, and that you're paying attention to what's tripping you up and figuring out how you could account for it to prevent it from being an issue in the future. That's really awesome, and something I wish more Rebels spent time on! Keep up the good work! You got this!
  3. It sounds like you're doing really well but... What's the deal with qigong?! Not working out for you? It's two minutes of your day, so don't tell me you can't find the time. If there's something stopping you from doing it, it might help to take a minute (if you can find one, I know you are really quite busy) and think about what it is exactly that's getting in your way, and how you can address that to set yourself up for success. Other than that, keep it up! I'm cheering for you!

    Sorry to hear about your headaches. Is that a regular thing? If it's bad enough to keep you from sleeping, you might mention it to your doctor. I'm glad to hear your challenge overall is going well, though! Keep it up! Somehow my brain got mixed up and I read "white broccoli (the ones widely used for Kimchi)" and was like "uhh do you mean cauliflower? Do they make cauliflower Kimchi? That sounds delicious but unlikely..." But no. Napa cabbage! DELICIOUS!! Om nom nom. All the summer squash. Idk if butter is a problem for gout (it seems likely but I really have no idea) but I eat summer squash chopped up, steamed, and then tossed in butter, salt and pepper. It's fantastic. I eat my oatmeal with peanut butter and fruit, and it tastes like a PB&J in a bowl. But peanut butter might be bad protein for you? Idk. It sounds like you're taking this really seriously and working hard to educate yourself and figure out what will work for you. I'm sorry you're struggling, but really proud of your progress! Keep it up!
  5. Hey @fireandlight, don't forget to keep us updated with your progress! We're rooting for you!
  6. Hey Cornelia, how's your challenge coming along? Don't forget to keep us posted!
  7. As an American I can totally sympathize. Looks like you made a pretty strong effort despite your sudden flu! I'm glad to hear you've recovered. I hope that sea lion was a one-off and not a sign of some sea lion plague.
  8. SUCCESS! Way to make it happen. That feeling of accomplishment and relief after dealing with a task that's been lurking around is definitely worthwhile. It sounds like your other goals are going well, although I'm sorry to hear about your strain. I hope you feel better soon! PS: Happy Shark Week!!

    That's amazing! Way to go! Any reflections on how well you liked bringing your own lunch, how easy/difficult it was, how likely you might be to repeat the performance? That's so awesome I can't even say. I'm so proud of you for letting "slip-ups" not bother you and just waiting for the scheduled weigh-in. You got this! Ugggh I'm sooo happy for you. This post was exactly what I needed to see today, because even though I've been busy lately I feel like I'm running around in circles and just getting through miscellany, not really addressing my main goals. Aim to be more like BP88! Do what you know to be right, and the rest will fall into place! I can do it! You're fantastic, BP88. Keep it up with your challenge, you're doing a fantastic job (it sounds like you know already ). And let us know if there's anything we can do to keep supporting you or anything.

  11. Inazea, you're totally killing it!!! That's fantastic! Looks like you found a possible key to unlock more study time... any ideas for low-carb days? Do you know what caused you to trip up there, and how to avoid those triggers in the future? Let us know if you need any help!

    Hey Ashweeherkie, I hope you're feeling better! Keep us posted on your progress, we miss you!
  13. NF to Danae! Looking for @DanaeArgos! Just a quick ping to let you know we miss you. Drop by sometime and say hello!
  14. I poked my head in here thinking "Hymnusal's threads are never this quiet, what happened" and then was reminded that you're on a Mission! Of course. I hope you're having a great time and helping lots of people and expanding your worldview! And all the kids you're chaperoning are doing the same, of course.
  15. Yussss you're doing great!! I'm so inspired by you I'm thinking next 4WC I will devote myself to Elements properly. (Next month will be much more laid-back for me anyway so hopefully I can force myself to dedicate the time, haha). How long are you finding each "lesson" takes for you? One of the things that got me off track was that there seems to be some extreme variation, especially with the test days upfront, and I ended up saying "I don't know how long it'll take today, what if I'm rushed/run out of time." Which is a lame excuse, but you know, brains. Also congrats on the budget reconciliation! It's can be tough to find those little errors but they really do make you tear your hair out.
