  1. I've heard people say cracking your knuckles is good for them and people say it's bad so I have no idea, really!
  2. I think I can describe it best as rotating my wrist until I can feel it crack, like cracking knuckles. I'm not sure if it's really swelling, actually, that's just the most logical thing I can come up with, but I think the cause is that I occasionally put too much force in and the end result is my wrist getting less mobile until the pain goes away. The pain ends up being around the point where the bone of my index finger and thumb meet down by the wrist.
  3. I've done tape measures of my neck, waist and hips and tracked them on MyFitnessPal but I haven't checked them in a while - can't find my tailor's tape measure. The wrist is slowly getting better, I just have to remember not to try to crack it and get in this situation again since this always seems to happen if I mess with it too much to try to relieve tension after typing for a while. Working out seems to help so I'll keep that up.
  4. So handstands aren't working out so well, since I messed up my wrist a couple weeks ago and can't really bend it until the swelling goes away, which might take the rest of the challenge time. Saving money isn't going so well either, but I'm hoping things stop coming up (and my roommates stop being stupid with their money and costing me mine) so that I can drop a few hundred in at once. I also keep spending money on books, which is both a good and bad thing I suppose. Losing weight is on track-ish. It's tough to really tell since weight can vary drastically due to water, sodium, moo
  5. Well, I didn't do my handstand workout yesterday like I wanted since my sleeping aids kicked in sooner than expected, but my bodyweight workouts are going according to schedule. The money thing is going well so far, hopefully nothing comes up to derail that. And I lost 5 lbs so far, I'll have to see if I'm still on track this coming Saturday since I weigh in once per week - every Saturday morning before I do anything else.
  6. I am the worst at this whole 'do this thing daily and don't forget!' thing, so this is a week report, I suppose? I lost 5 lbs this past week, so that's nice. I had a spinach, baby kale, and chard salad every day of the week along with a banana for lunch and apple for breakfast. I've been chugging water like my life depends on it (because it does!) and I'm starting to feel much like an actual human being again. I do need to fix my sleep schedule, because any progress I make with diet and exercise is going to be kicked in the nads otherwise. No matter how much better food
  7. Yesterday I did the whole nerd fitness bodyweight workout and ate a nice banana and red delicious apple, on top of a salad! The salad had chard, spinach, baby kale, carrots, chia seeds, real bacon crumbles, crushed walnuts and italian dressing. It was pretty good! Likely going to have another one of those today, but with half an enchilada since yesterday I didn't get nearly enough calories. Today I've also done my handstand practice. Looking forward to wall walking soon, but for the moment the wrist exercises are amazing simply because my wrists are problem areas due to my job in d
  8. Rats are cute! I'm a cat person though, I can't see my cats getting along with rats. I'd love to find somewhere to check out for improving mental health, because it's becoming debilitating for me - depression, anxiety, chronic procrastination, apathy, etc. I sadly don't know anywhere to check for that, so I don't have suggestions. What I do know is that everyone suggests physical activity and going outside to improve mental health.
  9. I'm using the progression outline from right here.
  10. All right, I did the handstand practice outlined in this Nerd Fitness blog post. While doing them I came to the conclusion that my wrists are horribly maintained and I should do the wrist stretching exercises every day, preferably in the morning since they're easy and quick and it'll get my wrists fired up for work. I figure eventually they'll gain the flexibility I'm going to need in order to do handstands! Today I ate: Nothing for brekkie. A spinach Bullrito with extra steak, queso, lettuce, and fat free refried beans for lunch, with a Mountain Dew Code Re
  11. Why does my body go through so much water so quickly? I feel like I'm constantly drinking water and it's never enough. Like every twenty minutes I drink about a cup of the stuff or so! I'm starting to hate the taste of it too
  12. Looking forward to the minichallenges, still not sure how this stat system works though.
  13. I figure I should probably make one of these for accountability. I know myself well enough to know that I will at some point - likely sometime soon - get hit with the usual feeling of apathy about the whole 'bettering my life' thing, so this might help offset that. I don't have any big lists or anything of the sort yet, but I'm going to be adding those - likely sometime soon, with my endgame goals outlined in something of a tree breaking down each endgame in to individual steps. But that can be for later, since I just finished my last workout of the week! And what a workout it was:
  14. Just throwing it out there that I'd also love to climb a glacier someday.
