  1. Athaclena - 2nd verse same as the first....

    And a close friend succombed to cancer last night. About 2 years ago he worked on losing weight, then didn't stop and he realized he was having trouble swallowing. Finally got to a doctor and it was already stage 4. F*ck cancer man! Hubby is devastated and I just had to leave him and head to the airport. Some days my job really sucks.

  2. Diadhuit takes good care of herself

    Ugh. That's a bad week in anyone's book! Deep breaths - and update the resume. Even if it turns out work doesn't turn out as bad as you fear, having a polished resume ready gives you a bit of a moral boost. Trust me in this! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  3. Athaclena - 2nd verse same as the first....

    I know - I've just had so much trouble engaging an actual plan. I really need to suck it up and workout LOL.
  4. Rainelf moves into unknown territory

    Great example - I've pretty much started ordering off of the Appetizer menu. One appetizer + side salad is virtually ALWAYS enough food. And if it turns out the portions are actually REALLY small - well - an occasional small dessert is great too!

    Don't I know it. The best advice I can give is figure out what you CAN control and work there. Walking to Mordor will be great for that - and try to enjoy the experience!
  6. Ok - maybe more like 124th verse same as the first. You can read more about me by following links in the sig... I'm literally just extending my last challenge through this one. My travel\work schedule is crazy - and we're slowly making progress on what we need to do to sell our property in Atlanta so we can MOVE. Oh, and hubby is starting a new business venture and I'm helping out with that - 'cause you know I have nothing to do.... 1) SLEEP - with crazy travel, I have to do my best to make sure I'm getting in my 8 hours. This is MUCHO IMPORTANT so I can function and NOT get sick\catch a cold 2) PROBIOTIC - Gotta take it so I'm not taking antacids like candy. It'll still happen, but still trying to minimize\only take when I eat something acidic like something with a tomato sauce 3) FOCUS ON FOOD - as much as I want to get in shape, I'm actually losing weight more by focusing on WHAT I'm eating rather than trying (and failing) to move more. I have found that cutting carbs doesn't fit in my lifestyle - so I'm cutting out beef\pork almost completely and eating more meatless meals. I started this about 1/2 way through the last challenge and it seems to be working for me and I'm sticking to it MUCH better than trying to cut carbs. I'll try to check in at least once per week. That's all I'm going to attempt. My schedule is going to be a bit on the crazy side....
