How can I add a video direct to post?? Like terosx did?

 

I've always wondering this...I would like to know as well!

 

Also, I'm not doing the 1st mini challenge for the adventurer's because I like my goals and don't think they are too hard or not challenging enough. Most of the time I already take that into account before I do create the goals. :)

On the Reply field there's a small box icon, third from the top left next to where you can select Font. Select that, then select "Media" from the drop down menu and paste the URL in the appropriate place.

Thanks!!

 

In regards of the adventurer's mini-challenge I change my goals a little bit, I drop to once a week the pull-up goal, I have a big life goal that is unchangeable, so the fitness and habits things is more of a reminder for me...

This got posted to a Facebook page I follow, it amused me. Just have to trade out the crunches for something better.

that's a LOT of planks from the Imp per episode.

 

 

I tweaked my goal to be 7 chapters a week, or average of 1 a day. The first book I'm reading has shorter chapters so it'll be easy, while the next book will be substantially harder.

What's in the chick+veg soup?  Is it whole30?  Great job man :)

Yup, whole 30 ok ;)  Roasted white and dark meat chicken.  The veggies, onion, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, and butternut squash.  I forgot to add in celery, but it came out fine.  Also the chicken broth was ok that I used, plus some spices.

 

How can I add a video direct to post?? Like terosx did?

You can do it by adding media tags around it.  Like this:  [*media] youtube link [*/media]  (remove the * from it.  I just had it in there so it would show up)

 

I've been pretty down and out the last few days.  Been trying to recover from this cold.  Lost a few pounds though, so eating is on par.  My soup has lasted me a good while this week ;)

Ohhhh that sounds better then what I do! Mines roasted chicken meat, carrots, celery, onions and parsley. Basically chicken noodle soup without the noodles. :-)

I haven't attempted soup again since my chicken soup is a whole cooked chicken picked apart, carrots, egg noodles, butter beans, garlic, onions, and celery. I feel like on whole 30 that no noodles and no beans would really kill the whole soup.  Supposed I should try just making a different version though.

 

You almost through this cold?

So my whole body feels pretty weak right now. I have pain in my chest and biceps and even my abs.  It had to have been from yesterday's workout.  Instead of feeling like crap, I'm happy. I want to exercise again and get back into the groove. I'll be attempting a small workout tomorrow morning (hopefully with my g/f). 

 

The first week is almost wrapped up- how is everyone else doing?

It's one of the responses Pinky gives to The Brain. It's amazing I actually remember it. (around :40 seconds in)

It is really amazing that you remember! I used to love this as a kid but now all I remember is an impression of the theme song. And NARF! :D

Yayy I just finished my workouts for week 1! The challenge has really been helping me a lot. At the very least, it helps me feel productive when studying doesn't always go my way. I just put on my hard hat and workout for 30 minutes and I feel that at least I have done something good that day! 

I have high expectations of myself in terms of studying progress, and I have to deal with negative feelings when I don't meet those expectations. So the challenge has kept me sane for now.

For me, I lay down simple enough goals that it becomes something I need to keep track of in the back of my mind.  I know there are some people that have grading scales and point distribution of grades, but for me it's making a habit and sticking with it- pass or fail. I'm not knocking other ways of having challenges set up: different things work for different people.  However for me, the simpler the goals, the less stress there is.  That doesn't make them easier, but it makes them concise enough to not worry about them.  I plan my goals with enough leeway that I'm not forcing myself into doing something- instead I'm choosing to do something.

 

Like with my tweaked reading goal- I don't want to feel like I have to read a chapter a day, so instead it's 7 chapters a week.  I'll be bored one day and it'll pop in my head, "I WANT to read a bit."   Instead of, "It's Wednesday, I'm tired, and now I HAVE to read."  There's a big difference for me by doing that.  I'm not obligated, it's something I want to do.

Typewriter push and pull ups are awesome-insane. I want to become awesome-insane too!

But that's an ultimate goal. Right now I need to keep myself sane. So I have really basic goals. Just keep being healthy and move for 30 minutes a day. Much better than sitting down whole day cramming. That sort of thing is get-me-admitted-to-psychiatric-ward insane.

As some have seen, my first week totally sucked. However --- after the simple change I made, the next 5 weeks should rock. I should have no problem of meeting my goal each week.... Hell there might even be some weeks I do more, but I'm not going to push myself to hard. I'm going to start listening to the inner me and what it wants to do.

Alright everyone!  We survived week 1.  Now it's on to week 2.  Never care what others think.  Always challenge your inner self.  It doesn't matter if it's smaller goals, or if it's with eating right to fuel yourself for the upcoming battles, or if it's challenging what you thought possible for yourself... Grow, and get better...
