  1. As of tomorrow, my challenge for this round is over as I forge onward into Great UK Anniversary Adventure 2018. The biggest parts of my challenge are above. For the coffee/sugar/alcohol challenge: I am down to 1 cup of coffee per day and 0-1 alcohol per day. Sugary sweets remain the hardest part, but I'm (mostly) down to one serving per day on that too. I'm well into project fix-the-breakfast, eat dinner earlier in the evening, drink more water, and experimenting with supplements. The rest of the challenge: -Take the stairs 75% of the time at work, and sprint them a
  2. Wow, that looks great!
  3. Ta-da! (Somewhat) Science-ing the Diet: Not terribly long ago, I acquired a 23andMe report. During this challenge, I worked on making valid use of that information. There were several pieces to this: 1. I made an appointment with my doctor to get a blood test for one of my biggest risk factors. If positive, I would have needed to make a diet change. (Results are in: So far, so good, no diet change necessary.) 2. I also uploaded my data to FoundMyFitness for more health information. This gave health-based suggestions and risk factors to work with (comp
  4. I'm sorry! I believe that you will be weather the storm. I hope things improve quickly...
  5. Good luck on your house showings tomorrow!
  6. That sounds awesome! It seems like you have a great starting point, and even building your resume already! Very sweet. I don't get the relationship to pizza, admittedly... I've been thinking off and on about voiceover/narration for awhile, as well. It seems like it would be really fun... plus anything that I could theoretically do in my pajamas gets bonus points. I also have a theater/speaking background, but I don't think I have a great voice quality. I know there is a place for every type, but I'm always a little bit startled when I hear recordings of myself (like... I feel so
  7. Also, I am intrigued by this new business venture.
  8. Ludicrous Speed?! Oh no! Stop the ship!! Bonne chance dans le maison! Et aussi d'autres objectifs...
  9. Thanks everyone! I decided to go with outlook, and nobody has made me change it back (although they still say "future outlook" in discussion, which is fine). And as far as business jargon goes... the one I really can't stand is "mission statement." BLECH! Those things have no value add for me! (Luckily my workplace business jargon tends to be policy jargon, which is amusing to me - I think some of these acronyms are funny - or science jargon, which I enjoy because it is meaningful and people actually know what I'm saying.)
  10. I have realized in past weeks that my attraction to sugar, coffee, and alcohol are basically linked into one overarching addiction. Aside from being very delicious to me, these things are all also often shortcuts to being less moody. I would totally be that idiot from the Ghost in the Shell live action that wants to waste pricey medical technology on engineered, alcohol-immune livers. It's even possible that previous attempts to buck sugar addiction has been less effective than hoped because I was missing the coffee and alcohol links in the chain. I basically control one craving by just shifti
  11. Yep. I have been lurking on this thread during the week, and have really been enjoying it...
  12. Semantics question for all you language nerds: The phrase "future outlook" seems to be commonly accepted lexicon, but isn't it redundant? Regardless of common use, should it just be "outlook" or something similarly simple? I'm putting together a presentation for work and every time I see "future outlook" it grates. I am wondering if I should change it. I know it's a small thing, but I've also enjoyed meetings that completely revolved around arguments over commas. We're a picky bunch over here.
  13. Ha ha, yes, that is exactly what we are doing with our money! So, for years, every time someone visits Edinburgh they come back and tell me how much I would love it and I should go. It is for Edinburgh, and ONLY Edinburgh that I get this. Now we have a fan club. The anticipation is really building. There are some date overlaps for when we'll be there, too. Have fun at your wedding! The Green Dragon looks charming. How did that go? The first time I visited those lattitudes, it was around the summer solstice, and I was fascinated and nigh giddy with
  14. Something Wicked... is fantastic, isn't it?! Bradbury is one of my favorites, and especially that one!! See, I'm even adding extra exclamation points!! I have mixed feelings about the film adaptation of books... I always have. But I'd much rather they go nuts on book adaptations than continue the trend of just re-making every movie we've already seen. At least that way we have new-ish things to watch.
  15. Currently reading: Children of Hurin Cooking For Geeks (yes, still. I've been slowly picking away at this one for a long time) Living With Intensity Britain's Real Heritage Pubs Frommer's Edinburgh & Glasgow Bien Dit! (French text book) Women in Pants: Manly Maidens, Cowgirls, and Other Renegades There's also a baseball program from the local AAA team on my night stand, because I'm studying the system for recording plays shorthand, or whatever you call it. Plus rpg books. We relatively recently started a new system (Starfinder) so I have
