  2. I dislike the texture. If I'm drinking something with carbonation, it had better have alcohol in it! Edit: on the plus side, it makes those "drink fewer sodas" challenges really easy. Kind of hard to drink fewer than zero.
  3. Having just come from Salinger's thread, I can see why people would come to you for advice, relationship or otherwise. What you said there made sense and came across clearly. (And I feel like there's more that I want to say, but I'm running into my usual problem where I can't quite translate everything from my brain into words or text.)

It got my heart rate up anyway.
  5. 60 seconds jumping jacks ✔️🐝 If they're not up when I come to do them, I will update. If someone else wants to do the updates, that's fine with me as well. I think most of you are in an earlier time zone than I am. Enjoy your trip, Tobbe!
  6. Thank you, Tank. I'm not feeling the hype right now, but I'm here.
  7. Well, I'm really not feeling a challenge right now. But I'm going to start one anyway on the theory that this feeling will go away in a few days if I just keep moving forward. Since I don't have any grand new ideas, I'm going to keep most of what I had last time. There's one more week to the pull-up challenge workouts (Tuesday/Thursday/Weekend). If I get a pull-up at the end (or maybe even if I don't), I plan to replace them with kettlebell workouts. I think it will be good to have a bit of a change in workouts. I'm going to continue rucking or hiking the other days (Monday/Wednesday/Weekend). Mountaineering class starts up again in January and I need to get out on the trails more during the week, so I'm setting Wednesdays as my hiking night. I'm going to take my pack to work so I can go straight to the trailhead without stopping at home. I have picked a couple of hikes I've done many times so deciding which one to do will be easier. Friday nights will be my night off, at least as far as workouts go. I'm going to continue cleaning, dishes, and compline. I was thinking of stopping the DailyDares, but maybe I will switch them to the morning. My other idea for this challenge was getting up earlier in the morning, but given the week I'm facing at work (most likely several early mornings and the possibility of working all next weekend, plus not enough time to do everything that needs to get done), I can't deal with setting an early wake-up time. Maybe later in the challenge or next time. But maybe doing DailyDares in the morning will hit the spirit of what I'm looking for. My challenge weeks start on Mondays.
  8. Week 6, Thursday Pull-Ups (T Th S/S): T - Week 6 Day A Th - Week 6 Day B S - Hike/Ruck/Kettlebells (M W S/S): M - Ruck: 1.9 mi W - Ruck: 2.1 mi F - S - Clean: (Bedroom, Bathroom/Laundry, Living Room, Kitchen, Computer Room) M - Kitchen: spider webs and spider nest (I destroyed the spawn of Ungoliant) T - Packed the Styrofoam pile (and some other Styrofoam that was still in boxes) into the car to take to the recycle place tomorrow. W - Laundry Th - Computer Room: broke down some cardboard boxes that large electronics came in (electronics that I got 5+ years ago) F - Sa - Su - DailyDare: M T W Th - 30 windshield wipers Dishes: M T W Th Compline: M T W Th I feel like I'm really making progress with the pull-ups. I can jump up to the top position (instead of using a chair to get up there) and do a top hold or pull-up negative and it feels strong. I'm looking forward to trying for an actual pull-up at the end of the session in a bit over a week. Not so much progress on figuring out my next challenge...
  9. Yay for football! (That's the one with the black and white ball you kick, right?)
