I love your cooking goal :) :) :) and Im thinking of starting the C25K as an unofficial challenge goal, running seems to lift my moods with the least amount of time spent in attaining that effect...so I should do it more, I'm thinking :)

bwhahahahaha I have lost 3 lbs that way! 

How was your day 2?

Day two was pretty good. I cooked my steak and did it pretty well I might add. And hiked with the dogs in the AM. Unfortunately one dog got something in his paw and I have to take him to the vet today. He won't let me get between his pads (we don't know each other that well). After his injury my day went a little haywire. I got anxious and my appetite fled.

 

Holy crap alright!

 

I like your life quest. I really need to get onto mine.

Hey Matt. Thanks for dropping by. I've needed to focus on my finances for awhile now. I'm not getting further in debt (minus emergencies), but the minimum payment crap is killer. Once this dog sitting gig is done, I'll have 600 to put into my plan. 300 for credit card and 300 for my braces (adult braces. Ugh. but they're working). Hope your week goes well.

Today: The dog will be alright, but hiking will be minimal. I'm going to run the dirt road circle on my own and see how that goes.

Food: I ate my usual Beef Florentine dish this morning at a diner and had some flank steak strips this afternoon that I cooked yesterday. I even heated them back up so I'm counting that as making myself a meal as I never would have done that a year ago.

Running: nothing

Food List: I started the list in an excel sheet and listed several meats that I normally eat. Now I have to get info to paste in. I have excel sheets for each food group, minus desserts!

Money: got anxious about dog and took out 55 dollars to eat (meal listed above) and get chocolate - 9 small pieces. Not a great idea. Won't be doing that again. Didn't feel good at all in the end. blucky!

Overall: I'm not sure I'm in challenge mode yet? I feel okay and I did some things on my goals already, but I don't feel overly connected to it. Maybe that's okay, who knows. It doesn't feel bad, just unusual I suppose.

Till tomorrow!

Cheers, T :smiley_simmons:

eh you are living a different life this week in a sense, it makes sense to feel unconnected to things, its like not focusing on your diet on vacation, just dont let it stay that way! Glad the pooch is okay :)

 

 

Well, this different life is part of me now. I'm a pet sitter.

 

 

 

really sensible goals! best wishes on those credit card payments.

 

too bad that bowel movements can only be used for a one-time weight loss dip! ;)

 

I'd love to have a poo weighing acountabilibuddies group! "So, please, tell us how your poops are doing?"

yeah true. I'm sure you will get it all figured out before long :) 

and they aren't doing so good, I had dairy and gluten over the weekend, so my IBS is acting all crazy, and giving me tummy aches! LOL! :P

Well that stinks!

HA see what I did there? I made a funny.

 

I have a chicken to roast and don't feel like it. Damn hikes are killin' me: feet, joints, back (lack of core engagement), and my neck from craning down to see what I'll slip on next! Boo Hoo, woah is me!

Okay, thanks!

Moving on!

Have a great day!

I don't know what I've posted and what I haven't so

         be warned...

 

 

Day one of this dog-sitting job (Sunday last) I got lost in the woods. Two dogs and myself left at 2 pm. Well into the walk the  dogs took off after a dog that barked out of nowhere. I (unwisely) chased after them, calling to them, not remembering that I don't know these woods at all and that I was running completely off the tiny-ass trail. That happened, I think, about an hour into the what was really a HIKE. As it happened the sun got covered by clouds long before I could get a reading on direction. I wandered haphazardly trying to find West. I stopped for a bit and stuffed my hands in my pockets. Lo! My iPhone. I have a compass on it and google gps! Oh, shit, yea. I got my bearings and started heading in the proper direction. After a bit I got a phone call. Really? I'm lost but I have reception? Okay. It was a neighbor and he had Willow with him. I told him I was a bit lost but I'd be there soon enough. After another 10 minutes of hiking Leroy found me and lead my back to the logging trail (the start of our hike). YEAH Then we had to climb the road that the guy lived on, shit! It was steep and I was exhausted. We got Willow and we got back down the road and home fine. I sat on the couch after stripping off my clothes and leaned back. Over the mantle, there's a clock ticking softly. My eyes gravitate toward it. The big hand was on the 2 and the little hourly hand was on the 5. Holy Shit! 3 hours!?!

 

Day two, I found that the front door key doesn't work. I have all my food for the gig and I'm locked out? Twenty minutes and I finially find a way in through the basement.

 

Day three, the dog snaps and loses a whole toe nail off his back foot. Ow!

 

Day four, we go to the vet with the dog who doesn't like leashes, is scared, and in pain. Gee great.

 

Day five, I slip on wet leaves and jar my back just enough to remind it that it's sorer than hell from the lost hike.

 

Day six, my emotions all gather to let me know, they are not feeling happy or secure. No kidding!

 

Day seven, myK comes over and we spend some time talking about us and how I've been distant and not interested in what she's doing. I haven't been a good partner lately as I have been coming out from under the haze of PTSD and surviving cancer. Everything is new, exciting, scary, overwhelming, and unknown. I'm finding me - hopefully the real me -, and in the process have been letting the good things in my life slide a bit. But myK and I have had a good talk or two recently and my partner abilities are improving again. So today ends up pretty good, but my nerves are shot and she needs to cook the chicken and bread because now I'm too nauseous around food.

 

Day eight (today), I'm trying to realize just how much I've dealt with so I'm not so hard on myself. It's tricky to do for me, and possibly for you as well. Cutting myself some slack is not my strong suit by a long shot. But man, it needs to be better than it is now. Well, enough for now! I have to eat, take my meds, shower, change, and go help my parents. See you tonight.

 

Best,

Teri

*ALL the hugs*

What a tough week! You handled it well it seems like!!!! ^5

Kudos to you and K for having the hard talks and working through it, she sounds awesome and I know you are, so you are both worth the effort for eachother <3 That same process was part of what ruined my marriage. Not to add more to your plate, but do you know anything about attachment theory? (may have mentioned that before if I did, ignore me) Im reading a book dealing with it bc Im sooooooo seeing my issues with it and how they impact my relationships, both past and present. I hope you feel better as the day goes on <3

That sounds like a pretty tough week. Great work on picking yourself up and just getting on with it.

How is the cooking/pre-planning going?

Week 1 was flank steak... check

Week 2 is chicken... check (with help)

Week 2 1/2 is curried rice... hoping for Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

Week 2 --

A heavier, dumpy hiker!

 

Not what I had planned, but I'm surviving it. Week 3 should be much better. I'll be at home Saturday evening and I'm not headed back out until the 15th. So pre-cooked foods can happen more often (didn't get curry done this week) and Ii can get back to running!!!!

 

Till then!
