  1. Past hour
  2. Totally talking my language about what to order. I used to be city folk, so love the variety of food, and have learned to make a lot of my favourites in my isolated community. Don't get a lot of ingredients in (like lemongrass, fennel etc) so am limited on the repertoire of what I can make. Take advantage of off island time whenever I can. At Chinese restaurants I normally aim for restaurants with no English on the menu and order by picture. Head on means I know what I'm eating hahaha. Always insulted when I get brought cutlery automatically though. Fitness, like honour, is never bestowed but earned through blood, sweat and sacrifice

    That's the kind I have now! Unfortunately, the doorframes in the house I'm living in are too thick for this kind of pull-up bar. But! A solution has been found I'm alive! Somehow. Thanks, Miau! <3 I'm alive, folks! Sorry for not being on much last week. I was trying to adjust to the new job and the new home and wanted to spend my down-time decompressing tech-free. The new job is going pretty well. It's been super busy though, which is a big change from my last job. It feels good though, to be doing something I actually enjoy doing. Good news on the pull-up bar front: while I couldn't find a playground with monkey bars or anything (where have all the good playgrounds gone?!), I have ordered an extendable pull-up bar. It's just a bar that extends and uses physics and a clamp system to stay up on the doorway. Available here. It should be coming tomorrow, so starting tomorrow evening, I'll have a way to do pull-ups at home. Workout wasn't that good this morning. I got really anxious in the weight room and had a hard time focusing, so I cut my losses early after doing some pull-ups and bench presses and went back to the house and did 3x15 sets of knee push-ups. Tomorrow's a running day. I'll try to do a story update tomorrow. My brain is kinda fried right now after a ridiculously long court day. (We were there for 7 hours today. Court's usually only 4-5 hours for arraignments and pretrial hearings) Pull-ups: 1/7 Stretching: 1/3 Journal: 0/3 Run: 0/3 Duolingo: 1/7 Abs: 0/3

    It really slows my little man down - he’s gone from inhaling his food so fast he chokes to it taking like a solid minute to eat. Win! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You've Got That Gnawing Feelin'...

    My experience with this gnawing pain is that is is an expression of anxiety. I was brought up in a family where food had been used to 'soothe' and unlearnt the true feeling of hunger over time. Once I really listened to my body and waited until I was truly hungry I was able to differentiate between the pain between hunger and nagging anxiety. I have since learnt to soothe this anxiety with healthier ways, although very occasionally I give in to the old habit, hard to break but 95% improved.

    RES: Keep on Going

    Fabulous huh? How fabulous can I be when I've spent the better part of my weekend on here and once again forgot to update my own challenge? *smh* Okay... 1. Three interval runs, and one strength training a week. Make one of these runs outside when possible. Non-game days only, game days give me at least 10,000 steps and at least 20 flights of stairs Week 3, three games, one day in the gym (Wed.) working out with my trainer...well, not mine since he's out of the country, but omg I think I'm in love, this woman put me through my paces! She's awesome! I made excuses the other two days though and that's not good 4/6 2. Continue making the 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. 6 of 7, overate a bit on Saturday 3. Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. 6 days last week, three crocheting, three reading In other news just trying to learn as much as I can about being the best GL I can be will post a real update tomorrow!

    Sounds like you are on the mend. I hate it when colds linger, but you're beating this one back.

    It's smart to take a break if you are injured and/or in pain. If walking is something you can still do, keep up with that. Yoga can be great for back problems. Have you done much yoga before? As you may know, there are all different styles...some are very vigorous and some are more gentle. If you are new to yoga, be careful to listen to your body. Don't be afraid to ease off or modify a pose if it is hurting your back. If you are going to live yoga classes (rather than watching a video or something), it would be helpful to tell the teacher that you have a back problem (if you haven't already). [If you've already thought of all this, just ignore me!] Very good work on diet!
