  1. Take it from me, DON'T GET SICK! It's sucks the big one... Just wanted to drop in and say congrats on starting yet another challenge and...
  2. Just dropping in to say HI and cheer you on! Good job sneaking in a quick workout! I've been sick as a dog but I'm planning to get back to my microwave time counter pushups. lol Take care of yourself! Hope that cough lets up!

    Me too, me too. Food goal is no issue right now. Avoiding sugar is no problem since I literally can't taste anything. lol Hopefully that'll pass soon, I really wanna' make some vegan nachos! As soon as I'm no longer death bed sick.. I"ll start walking again. Whether i want to or not I need to take my daughter to school, starting this morning, so that's kind of a start. I think I'll revisit the current challenge later in the week when I'm less.. -cough- -hack- -blows nose-. Have an awesome day!!

    I might have to slip the next challenge mainly due to still being SO sick. We'll see... however I may join late or I might hang out and join the next one. I haven't exercised in several day and I've been pretty much living on NyQuil. I literally can't smell or taste ANYTHING. I can barely detect salt or sweet. Love ya'll and wishing you the very best of luck with the next challenge, starting tomorrow!! <3 <3 <3

    Hope you feel better too!! Unfortunately, I'm still quite sick. I thought I was getting better and it was just a cold/sinus infection but now my lungs hurt a bit and I'm coughing a crackly cough. My daughter has had a crackly cough but that's all, thank goodness, no fever. She hasn't had the headaches I've been struggling with also.. oh to be young. No exercise for the past few days as I'm dosed up with Nyquil and resting. We'd better both be well by Monday.. school starts again! I'm looking forward to NOT being sick very soon and getting back on the treadmill.

    Thanks for the heads up! I actually love the taste of bacon but, ya know, the piggies plus my arteries. Progress update! I really rocked the first challenge but I've been super disappointed in myself on this challenge. I've been exercising several times a week but not every day. My joints are really bitchin' everytime I work out, it's ridiculous. I've been struggling being consistent with housework though the kitchen looks really good right now. Also I've had to start cutting back on sugar. I try to be somewhat positive but not meeting my goals makes me feel annoyed with myself. However if this was a friend I was listening to, telling me these things, I would say it's the effort and forward progress that counts. I'd also say don't be so hard on yourself when your body is giving you trouble, you don't have control over most of what your body does. That being said I may have caught something from my daughter. We're both coughing and I've got a sore throat. Hopefully, this is just a cold or allergies.

    Limping quite a bit this morning on the walk to and from dropping my little girl off at school. VERY annoying! That's alright though I'm going to be scrubbing floors today and that alone is a really good workout. I hope you've had a lovely week and have an even better weekend. It's Fridayyyyy! Yayy!

    I'm glad I did! It was on sale and I don't feel too bad about it. I've made rice paper bacon, which was pretty good, but unfortunately we all got a small tummy ache after eating it. Next time I'm able to get a treat I think I'll try the Morning Star veggie bacon. As far as how people reacted. I saw it as a failed recipe but a few people I know saw it as WHY it sucks to be vegetarian. I should have thought about how they'd take it before I posted. It's the internet... we all know how people can be on the internet. SO I'm struggling with laziness and it's been hard to get myself to work out. Pain in my left foot and both ankles is making difficult and I'm only doing 1.50 miles, roughly, on the treadmill rather than my 3 miles. I really need to work on that however I also have a ton of things to catch up on around the house. Despite my guilt we have special company soon and I need the house spring cleaned. Also i'm I'm having a problem with feel dizzy/woozy now and then. I've had more sugar than usual lately and though I've been tested for diabetes I'm concerned. Sometimes I'll feel woozy about half and hour or so after I eat and sometimes I'll feel quite woozy when I've JUST started eating.If I can't have sugar sometimes I'll feel genuinely extremely sad, that doesn't seem normal. It's really weird. I'm going to try to cut way back on sugar and see if it helps. I've always gotten sugar cravings and if I can't have sugar I'll crave toast. I don't have the luxury of having a more specialized diet than what I'm eating now but perhaps cutting out the outright sweet things for a start will be enough. I hate not having insurance/money. Gr.

    To clarify... I bought the tempeh and used to make tempeh "bacon." OMG that was awful! lol Unfortunately I posted on facebook how bad it was and got a variety of responses mostly telling me to go on and eat little slices of pig instead. No thanks! lol I would rather eat disgusting failed recipe attempts any day. I've heard Morning Star makes a vegetarian bacon thats yummy but I haven't tried it. That'll be next on the list.
  10. I've been off for a few days and thought I'd pop in and check on ya. Hope all is well with you and yours!

    I'm slackin' quite a bit lately. I've even forgotten to do my cronometer over the weekend. Dang it! Very disappointed in myself. I did manage to do a little walking on the treadmill yesterday though I might not today do to all the housework I'm catching up on. It all started with one day when my feet and ankles hurt so bad I opted for the recumbent bike which gave me a sore back for the next couple of days. I've learned my lesson.. no more recumbent bike for me! lol I know.. dumb. I just need to continue to move forward and now let a super lazy weekend screw up my challenge entirely. Hope ya'll are having a wonderful day and making more progress than I've been! lol Oh and, hey, I'm experimenting with making tempeh bacon! Yay! So far the nibble I tried taste exactly like bri mold minus the bri and the marinade smells like all the ass. It's marinated overnight and baking in the oven now! Magically it's supposed to turn out delicious... we shall see. Will it make moldy ass bacon or delicious animal free numminess?!Stay tuned!

    I'm feeling very lazy but I plan on doing my "long walk" today and see how well my ankle(s) do. My body is very resistant to this whole exercise business..
  13. So glad she's getting help! I can't imagine how difficult this must be for the kids. Ya' know, I've been under some stress (financial difficulties, etc.) and I've found exercising really helps keep me more balanced. I feel like I'm more in control of my emotions and handle things more easily when I get regular exercise. I hope it helps you also! <3
  14. Oh no! That's heart breaking! I also have a seven year old and this brings me to tears. I hope ya'll will be able to help. What an awful situation!
