  1. Hahaha I love this. You are WINNING SO HARD. Five stars. Shiny ones.
  2. You ROCKED this challenge! I ghosted toward the end, too -- I had too much work to do. Next year, I'm going to have to NOT have a challenge in Jan/Feb because that's my busy time and I'm pretty sure I left everyone hangin'.
  3. I'd probably do the first as warmup and the third as cooldown, like Elastigirl said. She is, after all, a Kettlebell Superhero.
  4. I think that tea deserves a shoutout, too. Blessed, sweet, delicious tea. GOD I LOVE TEA. It's pretentious when an American loves tea as much as I do. In England, though, TEA ON, SISTER.
  5. I've started noticing that it's possible to do meditation on-the-go, focusing on my footsteps, or the sounds around me, or the music I'm listening to & the road before me as I'm driving. Don't know if that helps. I think it's very considerate that you're giving your boss so much heads-up. Some people are hard to replace, and I suspect you're one of them. You are for ME, anyway (smoooooch).
  6. LET'S TALK HEALTH, Y'ALL. So I've been pretty good about this, except I keep finding caches of soda somehow. Like, I was keeping some at work? And, like, we had some in the party cupboard? I have not, personally, spent any money on soda. In fact, I'm not even sure I've been inside a grocery store in weeks. (My husband usually does it.) Other than the soda, though, I've been eating a lot of fruit and for the most part only one drink per session. No online shopping for unneeded bullshit: check. Saving that money! Gonna one day p
  7. I love the name "Scribbles"! Did your therapist come up with that or did you? It reminds me of that Dr Katz show: Which I liked, but my husband informs me was nauseating and "not that funny." (WRONG! SO WRONG.) He is basically the grossest and wins no awards. Ugh, go back to the sewer, Meat Sweats.
  8. You could cross-index it with what ingredients each one needs. If you're good at spreadsheets (which I am NOT), you could even figure out what they have in common and overlap ingredient-shopping.
  9. I feel like everyone's getting screwed over by the weather this month. Everyone who had a "go outside!" or "get more exercise!" sort of plan is watching those dreams collapse in real time. At least you did it! Be proud!
  10. Sometimes when I'm super-sad I just take a nap, and taht seems to help. I've found that my triggers are sleepiness and hunger. Are you getting enough sleep?
  11. We xerox or print out or transcribe all of our recipes, then put them into a binder. Every once in a while, we flip through the binder and/or add to it. That way we can see everything in one place.
  12. So, in case it hasn't been obvious, I've been a little bit depressed/drained lately. But I think I've managed to turn a corner on my meditation, at least. Let's just talk about the meditation, and not, like, the rest of the hot mess that is my life. Let's put all that aside. I've started to read Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics and I think it's really turning a corner in the way I see meditation. I got that meditation did something, but I wasn't quite sure what, or how it worked. I was sort of like "well, uh, I guess I try
  13. This week slid away from me in a cacophony of endless work, not enough gym, not enough meal prep, not enough meditation. I am wiped out. My candles are lit at both ends and then there's also a fire in the middle somehow, and it's going to break into TWO SMALLER candles, both of which are, of course, lit at both ends. This is specifically why I didn't make too many fitness or food goals for this month. Actually, I did most of this. I drank a few days more than I should have, but I didn't break my "more than two" rule. This was a pleasant surprise. Hubs bought
  14. I'm not sure how your brain is calibrated, but mine is made such that the Whole30 was surprisingly easy for me. I do much better when things are completely on or off-limits. Moderation doesn't work for me at all. You should think about trying it. Maybe you can figure out what's going on.
  15. Oh, I really like the idea of it being like a muscle I can flex. Which reminds me, I should totally make Kegel exercises a mission some month. (Every single man on this thread recoils in horror). Oh! I do this sometimes! I stop after 4 and go back. The babbling happens sort of underneath and around it. And yes, it IS like the Swedish chef! It's language adjacent! It's not that I think the babbling is bad, per se, it's just that I've literally never heard of anyone else adopting this technique, so it feels like deviance/cheating.
