  1. Hi Fleaball! Thanks so much for chasing me up! I think I'm starting to realise just how much of a perfectionist attitude I have... Just missing that one walk on the 26th has just left me feeling completely defeated and like there's no point. I really need to try to find a more realistic attitude, otherwise I'm going to continually give up before I've even started! So, as of now, I have... - Eat fish and shellfish twice a week - 3/8 - Pick a dress sewing pattern - 1/1 - Drink 2 litres of water - 10/23 - Walk every day (5 minutes) - DONE 5/28 Th
  2. So days five and six... - Eat fish and shellfish twice a week - DONE FOR THIS WEEK 2/8 - Pick a dress sewing pattern - DONE (also now bought the material... I might start sewing next challenge :-) ) 1/1 - Drink 2 litres of water - DONE 6/28 - Walk every day (5 minutes) - DONE 5/28 Not too bad. Still feeling a tad disappointed I missed a day of the walking. But trying to reasonable with my lofty expectations...!
  3. Day four... - Eat fish or shellfish twice a week for the next four weeks - COMPLETED FOR THIS WEEK (two portions eaten!) 2/8 - Drink 2 litres of water for at least 23 days of the next four weeks - DONE AGAIN! 4/28 - Walk every day (5 minutes) - DIDN'T DO THIS ONE TODAY 3/28 - Pick a dress sewing pattern - DONE 1/1(I ordered the material for my sewing pattern today so I'm now further along that I had planned for in this challenge... One step closer to my finished dress!) So... My first knocked-down hurdle. I didn't do my five-minute walk today.
  4. One in three women have a miscarriage, hun... That would make a lot of screw-ups! Trust your body. It can do this. And enjoy the time before you can no longer move or cut your own toe nails, lol!!
  5. Lol! I really reckon they should rename 'pregnancy' as 'nine months of paranoia'!! Every move, every lack of move, everything you eat, everything you don't eat... And so on! Your body's got this! It knows what it's doing. As for the chocolate... I'm sayin' nothing...!! *Smiles innocently*
  6. Hi Belinda! Great goals! Good luck with them! I am going to be sooooo jealous of your 'magazine' house...! I'm starting to think I might need to add that to my quests list...!! Will be cheering you on!
  7. Day three... - Eat fish or shellfish twice a week for the next four weeks - COMPLETED FOR THIS WEEK (two portions eaten!) 2/8 - Drink 2 litres of water for at least 23 days of the next four weeks - DONE AGAIN! 3/28 - Walk every day (5 minutes) - DONE AGAIN (I took the dogs for an hour's walk) 3/28 - Pick a dress sewing pattern - DONE 1/1(I ordered the material for my sewing pattern today so I'm now further along that I had planned for in this challenge... One step closer to my finished dress!) This day was a little more automatic than previous
  8. Wow, thank you Severine! I'd never heard of it but it looks amazing! I'm learning so much about sewing from NF and I haven't even started cutting the pattern pieces out yet...! I like this place! :-)
  9. Keep going with your challenges, Plazmotic... You've got an even bigger reason to now! And a small start is still a start! Saying that, when I was pregnant, I craved nothing but McDonald's McChicken Sandwiches...! I wanted them morning, noon and night...! I went through a stage of going three times a week, lol!! I kinda feel your body knows what it needs... Or that's how I justified my frequent trips to Mccy D's!!!
  10. HI Martina! Welcome to the rebellion! :-) I am in awe of you being able to do flip turns... If you can do 'em, do 'em! I once read somewhere (I wish I remembered the source!) that people hardly ever notice anyone else's bodies because they're too busy being preoccupied with their own...! Do you remember anyone's body from last time you were at the pool...?! And treadmill's look way scarier than they actually are...! So think about all the kudos you will gain by using one! :-) Good luck!

    Hi Tiller, What amazing goals! And it's so clear to see where you're going with them... Well done for being so directed! re overeating... I used to do this a lot. I would emotionally eat ALL THE BLOOMIN' TIME!!! It was only when I went to see a dietician and she pointed out to me that the timings of my overeating episodes was most often (not always, but most often) at least three hours after a previous meal... Turns out, I wasn't emotionally eating (although I could be emotional at these times!!), I was just really hungry...!! I upped my protein at each meal and that reall
  12. Hi Cornelia, I'm a Brit... Walking across England is completely doable! I walked Hadrian's Wall from one end to the other, which basically stretches east to west across England (near the Scottish border). It was 84 miles over five days - toughest day was 21 miles long (I might have burst into tears that night when I got to the campsite...!!). But it is completely doable! Keep that goal in sight, Cornelia! Will be watching your progress on Couch to 5k... It's one of my quests! I'm hoping to start tackling that in the next month! Good luck!
  13. Hi eden_fire! Wow, I'm really impressed with your goals! And well done for summoning up the courage to post... It took me a couple of days to get up the nerve, too! It's the accountability, isn't it?! Crashing and burning in private is definitely easier...!! How have you been going so far? Have you picked just four of the nine goals you've outlined or are you doing all of them? I've started really simply and wondering whether I've let myself off a bit too much... I just thought that, if I could get into the routine of doing it and get some early confidence under my belt b
  14. Day two... - Eat fish or shellfish twice a week for the next four weeks - COMPLETED FOR THIS WEEK (two portions eaten!) 2/8 - Drink 2 litres of water for at least 23 days of the next four weeks - DONE AGAIN! 2/28 - Walk every day (5 minutes) - DONE AGAIN (had to do today's on the treadmill in the gym as I had my daughter for the rest of the day and her legs are too little to walk with any degree of pace!) 2/28 - Pick a dress sewing pattern - DONE 1/1(!) I'm still feeling really positive and it feels like these steps are the beginnings of lasting changes! It fee
  15. I bought them today! :-) Just going for black, white and purple. Going to be classic and hopefully very straight-forward! I'll save my artistic creativity when I have some idea of how to do it...! Saying that, I'm game for changing the pattern to better fit my body shape, which might be challenging...!
