  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 w

    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 mys

    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.

    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!

    I was so wiped and had housework and cooking to do soooo.. I countered all my walking as my.. walking. lol I did workout today though! My ankle griped and I didn't get my 3 miles in but I walked none the less!!

    Workout canceled for today. I'm limping quite a bit. I don't know if it's the weather or what but my Frankenakle hurts too much even for the bike. Screw you ankle! Hope ya'll are having a better day! <3

    lol Yes! That makes sense.. I've been slacking a bit. I accidentally misplaced my coat and had a huge run around trying to find it yesterday. I did the math and it ended up being about 2 and a half miles so I counted that as exercise. lol Today my back is really hurting and my feet/ankles are being difficult and I have running around to do soooo... so I might slack again today. (She says sitting on her butt in front of the computer.) Then again I might forgo housework and force myself to exercise at the gym regardless. We'll see... Oh but hey.. check out this cuten

    We've definitely indulged this weekend so I'll have to make up for it at the gym. Yesterday, I made vegan meatball subs with chao cheese. I toasted the subs in the pan with garlic and herb butter before adding the Gardein meatballs and spaghetti sauce, topped it off with chao and popped it under the broiler. OMG, so so good! Naughty time is over now.. time to get back to business...

    It's fine! It's only in my forefinger on my left hand. I had some Ibuprofen and some coffee this morning and it's already much better. I just hate getting old.. but better than the alternative. Also I posted a picture of last night's dinner but dang if it didn't show. Weird. Anywho, we got in our tax return, it was meager as hell, but at least we treated ourselves to some vegan nachos and sundaes. I was good and had very very little sundae.. however muchly nachosssss. Nom! Nom! Nom!

    I took a break from walking again yesterday and used the recumbent bike instead. I had a good workout, very sweaty after, and my back wasn't too bad. Yay! (pats self on back) Though I think I may have gout. My Dad has it and my husband also. I don't drink alcohol, well VERY VERY rarely (like yearly), and I don't eat animals.. so this is super annoying. I'll try and drink more water. Hope ya'll are having a wonderful weekend!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    My left foot is hurting quite a bit today and I was limping to and from school this morning. I think I should give it a rest. I might stay at home and do some exercises or maybe try the recumbent bike again and hope my back fairs better this time. I like this one but balancing on one leg isn't optimal right now so I might do those on the floor instead BUT, in any case, I like this one.. Darebee - Final Girl Workout
  22. I don't think you should worry so much about the scale as your forward moving progress. If you got up today, that's progress. If you put one less spoonful of sugar in your morning coffee, that's progress. If you did a 5 minute walk, that's progress. Even if you did eff all today because your ill and just care for yourself and made plans to get back to moving once you can. that's progress. Moving forward IS progress. We're always our own worst critics. I know, I know I bitch about my weight fluctuations. lol I always make sure I remember to be proud of myself for any day I did something g
