  1. I have completely thought of doing this too...
  2. I know Greyspeed already hit this up, but it's awesome that you pushed yourself to get it done.
  3. Hmmm.... Take these suggestions for what they're worth, but I know I take a rogue approach to fitness because I hate blocking out time to workout. Set a daily achievement that you can accomplish throughout the day and scale to your level. For example, I can score an achievement this month by doing 100 push-ups during a day. It doesn't matter if I do a set of 20 or a set of 5 in the windows of time I have, as long as it gets done. (Kind of like sneaking in pages of reading.) Combine reading with your exercise. This may be a challenge b/c it will require some sort of equipment...but biking, treadmill walking, elliptical, etc. are all things you can multitask on. I had a friend who would spend as much time as possible reading legal briefs on a stationary bike because it was the only time she could squeeze in a workout. The bonus here is that you would gain the incentive of what you'd really like to do--read and compound it with the more abstract goal of fitness. In terms of your reflection, I am a huge fan/proponent of the 'Five Whys' method of seeking the root of a problem. And in the spirit of the challenge: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?' 'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat. 'I don't much care where -' said Alice. 'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat. '- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation. 'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.”
  4. Yikes, that sounds tedious but good that you were able to count it as a workout... I'm also very excited to see how the Cosplay shapes up!
  5. I'm pretty sure carrying heavy things over large distances epitomizes functional fitness...rock on. Kudos on the taxes too -- we just got ours done even though I swore to myself I'd have them done by the end of January this year. Go adulting!
  6. Keep your head up. We all have our setbacks (I've definitely had my share), but you've done well with the challenge overall and you're doing really well with the writing aspect of your challenge.
  7. Ugh, this is frustrating. We have a lot of no-kill shelters in these parts, so I would be inclined to actually call animal control and then it would force the neighbor to deal with it if she won't take ownership of the issue. But I know that can't be said for everywhere...
  8. Woot better vision and cheaper than expected. Glad things are going well on the whole! Hopefully you are feeling less down with the sickness...
  9. Squeee!!! I mean... you caught me. I am a Joss Whedon fan(atic) and dollhouse was pretty awesome. I started with Echo because my daughter's first name starts with the letter E, but when it came time to include our son I didn't want to do Agent Mike (lame-o). So I went with the Dollhouse tie-in. Daily Dossier: Mr. Six has evaded capture. Since the last check-in, Mr. Six has accomplished four additional challenge tasks (21/90). End transmission.
  10. I will confirm that you were not the only kids who made up musicals to entertain themselves. My brother and I would actually sing parody lyrics about the chores we had to uh...yeah. I will revise this to say, I cussed at video games a lot cause it made me feel like an adult (and I was that kind of kid). Lastly, good work on the challenge and seriously wtf is up with Lowe's lumber. I've had the same problem.
  11. Daily Dossier: Mr. Six has evaded capture. Since the last check-in, Mr. Six has accomplished two additional challenge tasks (17/90). So Agent Echo gave Agent Alpha whatever bug she had been carrying so the weekend was spent trying to keep Alpha comfortable and doing self-care to avoid getting myself sick. Even though I haven't kept up as much as I'd like with my breathing and exercise it's not the end of the world---I haven't been captured which is critical. Spy game of the week is still TBD.
  12. So Kingsman was the first movie my wife and I went to see after my son, Agent Alpha, was born. First date night and she was humoring me 100%. The opening credits started rolling and she's thinking WTF did I agree to and I was thinking OMG this is awesome. That being said it's easily one of our favorite movies--just don't take it too seriously. @Asa Pond Also, Eggsy is one of my favorite protagonists ever and essentially the summation of my fitness goals.
  13. Good luck and it's good to see you back!
  14. Good work and glad to hear that you've pulled out of the funk. Hopefully everything at work will transpire quickly despite the bureaucracy!
  15. Curious about this too, but I suppose I could try to catch you on Twitch too.
