  1. Following. Because, well, handstands. And... mental health struggles I relate too. I did my first handstand (actually a forearm headstand in a yoga class) about a month ago... and I freaking loved it. I am loving hearing about what you are doing in your class and reading about how you are doing. I want to lose some more weight before doing handstands and/or headstands regularly (and work on building my shoulder strength back up... my forearms are apparently ungodly strong according to the yoga lady...) I'm so excited to keep reading your updates.
  2. Hi! Been creeping through your log... Congrats on 3 years sobriety!!! That is Huge!! Also, I've ridden the med rollercoaster for my mental illnesses too, and really feel for you, but the fact that you are still advocating and pushing through is so inspiring. For the longest time, I was on medication for anxiety when it was actually ADHD *shrugs* I hope things start to look up in that area and you find something that works well for you! I noticed that meditation was recommended to you... I was recommended this a lot too, but could never sit still, clear my head, etc I started doing more movement-based mindfulness activities (ie. slime, playdough, making sugar cookies from scratch, doing some light stretching, doing a 'rainforest' sound with my hands, etc) and this really helped. Eventually, I started doing trauma-informed yoga and yoga Nidra. (But that was after learning more movement-based mindfulness) Bringing awareness to my 5 senses helped me more than the guided meditations or to sit and let my mind go blank. During yoga, I often picture myself moving while my body is still. I thought I'd share this with you maybe one of those might work for you. Enjoying seeing your updates and progress!
  3. The original first post sounds so much like where I was last December. I'm glad you are back on the forums! Something that helped me start sticking with changes was reframing those tired statements ie: I am so tired of being the funny fat friend... became I want to be the funny fit friend. I'm so tired of my knees aching all the time became I'm am the person with strong knees. Not sure if that will help, but it's helped me. Congrats on down the 5%!!!
  4. Hi everyone! I haven't posted in a while - it's been a little crazy around these parts. My stress levels went through the roof - I found out I needed 3,000$ worth of dental work and am struggling to find a dentist in town that accepts my insurance, I am fighting wage garnishment because of my defaulted student loans, have been adjusting to a new work schedule, started babysitting during the week, had my phone shatter (still works though), getting ahold of my lawyer for disability, having my printer break when I needed it, and having the normal stress that comes from a job in the helping field, and well, had to go back on my beta-blocker because of my tachycardia. All of this led me to feel very defeated, stressed and like a failure. A big motivator in my NF journey was getting OFF the beta-blocker, so to have to be put back on it really miffed me. I know it's temporary and that it's likely just due to my stress. This also put me in a rough boat because until I went back on it, my resting heart rate was around 130bpm, and exercising with that was not advisable. When I first went back on it (last week) I was told to take it easy because of the side effects of dizziness and lightheadedness (I'm really glad I listened because these side effects kicked my a** the first few days) I let all of my habits slide to the wayside because of all of this. The only ones I really stuck to was brushing my teeth at night, drinking water and logging my food (and even that sometimes happened the next morning) I will say that even with my habits not happening, I've been able to keep my house relatively clean and organized, so that's a win. I am officially respawning today! I am off to a good start. I have habit trackers set up in my room and some of them on my Journal It app. I have a tentative schedule in my Google Calendar. I am off to a good start this morning, having done all my habits so far. Here's the habits I am tracking for the next 30 days: Wake up and Get dressed by 12 PM Make Bed AM Medications AM Skincare AM Brush Teeth Brush Hair Morning Walk A load of Dishes Daily / Shine Sink A load of Laundry Daily 3 PM Workout ( Mon - PT ; Tues/Thu - Walk; Wed/Frid - NF workout) Meal Prep (Tues, Thu, Sun) Face Masks (Tues) Trash Out (Tues / Fri) Shower/Bath nightly PM Skincare PM Brush Teeth PM Medications Tea before bed Gratitude Log / Log food, water, etc
  5. Here's an update. I'm doing well, but my fibromyalgia has been pretty bad the last week or two. I'm doing some training for work. Having some bills show up unexpectedly, but dealing with them. I'm trying to be nice to myself and understand that starting an exercise habit isn't easy and it's harder when I have my body fighting against me. I am really struggling to start a walking habit. Working out three times a week is probably slightly unrealistic at this point so I'm going to adjust that to once a week and stick with that for 4 weeks before upping it. My next goals are going to be focusing on a walking habit, waterlogging and keeping up with the habits I'm already working on. 8-19-19 to 8-26-19 Take my During Measurements Log my water intake for 7 days (do not include my sparkling water at this time) (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) Take 3 5 minute walks this week.

I'm not adding them in yet (want to get to three circuits with the wall push-ups first) but I'm proud.
  22. Did my work out today. Finally got to all 20 jumping jacks! Whoot! On Wednesday, I'm going to try to do two rounds/circuits but half the reps. So #1 would be 20 squats, 20 wall push-ups, 20 one-arm rows, 10 lunges, 30-sec plank, 20 jumping jacks. And #2 would be 10 squats, 10 wall push-ups, 10 one-arm rows, 4 lunges (2 each side to keep even), 30-sec plank and 10 jumping jacks. I'm not sure if I can do it but I'm going to try!
  23. Today is Monday the 22nd. I have been in the Academy and Rising Heros for a week and a half. I completed all NF Academy Week 1 goals I set (including daily 5-minute walks, logging my food, before photos and measurements) I completed all the Rising Heros quests I planned to: I walked the 6 min surveillance for 4 days, made my bed every day for 7 days (and have continued to do it!) drank over a liter of water a day, tracked my food, and did the bodyweight workout 3 times last week. I have completed The two get started missions, Exercise Level 1, and Becoming a Hero) This next week's goals are (Saturday 20th to Friday 26th) : 1. Continue with 6-minute walks daily (took my Sat and Sunday ones at work, an extra trip around when going to the restroom; did half a block for today) 2. Continue with my food logging (general amounts no calories/number tracking) 3. Three times NF BW workout this week 4. Continue making my bed every morning 5. 5 Minute dance party daily 6. Continue with water intake (preferably 2 liters, minimum 1) 7. No Excuse Stretches #2 8. No electronics first 30 minutes waking for 7 days (today was day 2) 9. Try two new veggies (tried butternut squash soup today; going to do brussels sprouts tonight or tomorrow) 10. Come with final 3 S.O. decoys for Rising Heros 11. Do 2-mile walk on Friday or Saturday 12. Parkour mission later this week. 13. Customizing Bat Cave #1 14. Navigate a Grocery Store section of the Academy
  24. Workout #2 done yesterday. Went well. Did 20 one arm rows instead of 10, upped the plank to 30 secs because it felt too easy. I was able to do 15 jumping jacks this time! Woot. I order a new sports bra from SheFit that will hopefully make movements easier since my current one is too big and medium-impact. I've kept up with the 5 minute walks (tomorrow makes day 7!) I've kept up with logging my food (tomorrow is day 7 as well) I've been drinking enough water (about 2 liters a day) and tracking it in Plant Nanny 2 (my sunflower is almost full grown!) I've been making my bed for the last 4 days for Rising Heros and it really starts my morning and nights better. I'm excited to see where the next missions take me. I'm trying to pace myself and not go to gung-ho out of the gate, I don't want to burn out. I have the workouts planned for Mon, Wed, Fri and will be walking on the other days. I just want to do all the things and so trying to slowwwww down a little. I will be working on Customizing my Batcave #1 later this week.
