  1. So, spotting or bleeding after strenuous activity or unusual exertion isn't unheard of. It could be that, or it could be totally coincidental and unrelated to the bike ride. I can't give medical advice, but I can tell you what I'd do: if it were me, I'd keep an eye on the spotting and take note if it gets worse, has a bad smell, changes color, or anything else funky, and if it did, then I'd call my doctor as soon as I was able. If it has any of those changes and comes along with a fever or any other feelings of malaise, I'd call a doc for sure. But, if the spotting stays very light and jus
  2. @Zera I know this is a super old post but I'm hoping y'all are still around. I'm 8 months postpartum and I have been terrified to do any type of ab or core exercise because I have no idea if I have any distasis recti issues or not. I asked my Dr asked about it at my 6 week postpartum appt and he gave me a very quick "nope!" when I asked if I had any ab separation issues. He didn't actually examine anything so I'm not sure how he came to that conclusion! I've read a bit online about how to tell if you have ab separation from pregnancy, but the problem I'm having is that I am a bi
  3. I also joined NF 6 years ago and had a similar bumpy road of mental health challenges, weight gain, and changes to my physical body that have brought challenges with my mobility. I just recently came back, right before the last challenge. I am so far from where I was 6 years ago, but I believe with gradual, consistent work it is possible to get back to healthiness. I wish you good luck on your journey.
  4. I am really getting into "Norse Mythology" by Neil Gaiman right now. I use Audible to experience books on my commute to and from work and I am really loving it. I have been able to experience many, many more books on Audible than I would ever have time to read with my current schedule at work and home.
  5. All right, folks. Time for the challenge retrospective. Really squeaking in late here, as the next challenge starts TOMORROW, yaaaah. Here's how I did for my first challenge back in the game. [Nutrition] Eat a vegetable with two meals every day. Gold Star if I manage to find a way to make vegetables palatable for breakfast. Longest streak: 10 days in a row Total number of successful days this challenge: 25 Gold stars: 1 Thoughts - This one turned out to be surprisingly easy. My baby just recently started solid foods. We're doing baby-led weaning, which mea
  6. More detailed update... So far doing really good with the veggies! I am taking advantage of the fresh and frozen (plain, unseasoned) veggies at my local grocery store and trying all kinds of new combinations. Also getting a kick out of giving new veggies to my daughter and watching her try them out. I counted all the foods she's tried since she started solids a month ago, and she's nearly hit 50 unique food items! The water goal is meeehhh. I did pretty good when I was sick because I was drinking so much water to try to flush the cold germs out. But before and af
  7. I'm still here! Still diligently working on my streaks and tracking the days, just haven't had enough spare time to sit down and update my thread here. My partner, daughter, and I all got sick with a dumb summer cold that I'm still fighting, and aside from that every moment of my free time has been spent planning and prepping for my partner's epic 40th birthday party which took place this past Sunday. Now that the party's over I can breathe again! Except, no, I literally cannot because of my gunked up sinuses. But I can FIGURATIVELY breathe again. I will do a more detailed update in the
  8. Ha!! Yes! "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" was my answer too!
  9. Oooh, fun! 1. Best non fiction book you have read recently? "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***" - it was the right book for me at the right time. 2. Favourite book you have read recently? Ready Player One -- I sadly had never heard of it before, but when I started it I could. not. stop. Hands done one of my top 5 reads ever. 3. The worst assigned reading you had in school? The Scarlet Letter. 4. Scariest thing you've ever read? I just finished a book about a mom whose child was abducted. "What She Knew." The idea of living a week of your lif
  10. OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I LITERALLY HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT SMOOTHIES. How is that even possible. Toasted tomato sammies sound yummy! Green cabbage I can do in small doses. You're right, it is more like broccoli and the leaves are thicker and not so wilty as other lettuce-y greens. My seedy bread was an acquired taste for sure but now I do enjoy it. I can't eat it all the time or it starts to taste and feel like carboard, but every now and again it's nice and earthy. I'm realizing as I'm typing that I'm not making it sound great...mmm cardboard and dirt....
  11. Therapy update: YAY. This new therapist seems like a very good fit for the work I want to do. I always go with my gut in these situations and today my gut felt safe and respected, with no red flags, so I'm going to go ahead with this therapist.
  12. At this point in my life, I really don't like sweet breakfast foods, so I am thinking it should be pretty easy to incorporate more veggies since I tend toward the savory anyway. I just sometimes get in a rut. I like anything with eggs or cheese. We eat a lot of omelets or scrambled eggs, and I will throw in whatever i have on hand for veggies. The only veggies I really truly struggle with are greens, either cold (like lettuce salads) or hot (like sauteed greens). The leafy texture of lettuce, spinach, etc. just really grosses me out. I eat grainy/seedy toast in the AM sometimes too, and
  13. Update: Heading into my first appointment with new therapist right now. I am exceedingly anxious about it. Wish me luck.
  14. Feels a bit abrupt to drop back into the NF forums after being away so long, like :poof: I’m baaaack! I’m hanging out with the Adventurers for awhile (my previous couple years’ worth of challenges were done as a Ranger). It has been so long since I’ve been active, and my entire life/routine/body has changed so much in the past two years, that I have no idea what type of activity/lifestyle I’m into now. So, for now, I walk, I hike, I eat a mostly healthy diet that doesn’t fit into any particular category (mostly working on dialing down my sugar consumption without reawakening my disordered
  15. Following! I've been working on a draft of my challenge and I noticed when I read yours that we have some similar thoughts and goals. Even 6 months into new-momhood, I'm still seeking balance, Becoming, and reconnection with my creative self. Best wishes in your challenge!
