    Give it a try for sure. And it seems like a different kind of job application, so even if you didn't get it, applying might lead to some interesting connections.

    That garden looks like it has a story... Thank you for sharing how going gluten free helped! Definitely gives me a new goal of going gluten free. The idea of losing my hay fever symptoms (or at least knocking down them a bit) by going gluten free would be amazing... Dream world type stuff....
  4. That is allowed, just wouldn't be extra credit. Impressed! I've been working on it for weeks and can only do a few. Today was the first time in recent memory that I managed 2 in a row...but I'm still only up to 4 for the day. Still impressed!

    Respawn: Nightfox has new life

    Checking In… I am feeling a little stressed. Let’s take a minute to consider what’s happening right now: - I have 3 work projects preparing to Go Live within a month - We are moving house in 3 weeks - Attending a 7-week course with my husband - My sister is fighting with my parents - I am mentoring a young adults group - It’s winter (shout out to the Southern Hemisphere!) And the normal life stuff keeps rolling on. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every positive decision I make is a big deal, no matter how tiny it looks. Choosing to not eat out, do a 15 minute workout, leave that errand for another day, say No when I need time out. One NF idea that stuck with me this year is Protect the Asset (me!). I will focus on taking care of my long-term health by not setting goals I can’t achieve and continually making tiny positive decisions. It’s all cumulative, as my little book of gold stars shows For the remainder of this challenge I am going to adjust my mindset to two daily goals: - Do something physical - Have 30 minutes of time for me I think this new way of thinking about it will really help. Thanks for the support, team! It’s been invaluable xx

    Sloth gets some miles in

    I agree! That would work...or the cheaper option of getting a strap that slides onto the stems and that you can tighten in the back ("Croakies"). I don't think so. But then again, I'm not a hipster cyclist :-)

    Strickland5 gets back on the wagon

    Got lots of good GM prep done today thanks to 4hrs of train travel (2hrs each way from San Jose) . Exciting to put ideas on the page.

    Red Panda has deja vu

    You guys will be proud, I did not go to IKEA. I had an 'eff it day. I knew I'd go over in calories but I literally only have Red Food in the house right now. I've been in a mood all day. Like, could potentially cry at a drop of a hat. That usually means one of two things 1) PMS or 2) I'm getting sick. I think it's a combo of both. It's shark week next week and my tummy has been bothering me all day. It's either shark week cramps (which I haven't had in YEARS!) or I'm coming down with another bug. So, today's recap: Money - resisted the dark side Soda - no, but the thought crossed my mind. And I've apparently replaced it with (homemade) chai lattes so I need to work on that too Exercise - I needed sleep and I was afraid I was going to puke if I did when I got home Track/Measure food - yes. Lunch was hard since I bought it from the cafeteria. But using my hand as a guide, I got a rough estimate
  10. Find a women's only gym. I always wore what I wanted which was generally tight nylon/spandex boy shorts and deep V front racerback sports bras. Yes, some guys were very discreet but they all checked me out head to toe regardless of what position or exercise. As I got older I decided to go to an all women's gym rather than wear loose clothes. I still dress young in public and get checked out by guys of all ages, but I earned my fitness and won't let testosterone fueled eyes change me. Here I am dressed for a 5 mile walk nearing age 70. I learned martial arts for defense as a young girl, so I have always felt secure.

    Love happy puppy photo!!! <3 And don't apologize for not being around. You have had some real life stuff going on. The fact you are still here and updating when you do is amazing <3

    Juice Bar - Rebel Hang Out

    Renaissance people came to mind, and Leonardo even if not fictional. MacGiver? The Doctor (from Doctor Who)? They both can do everything with basically nothing and makes me think of perfect rebels.

    Lateral Planet: The Long Night

    Although I haven't been very focused on challenge stuff this week I've had a few wins. I've taken a few days off work to catch up on puppy cuddles and do some shopping I wasn't able to do on the weekend. Found a couple of great dresses I could wear to my friends' wedding, and for one of them I had to go back to the rack and get a smaller size. That's always a good feeling! Also, Fiancé's default food court option at that mall is KFC, but when we got there it was shut down. Probably it's just getting refurbished, but for now it's nice not to have the temptation.

    LADIES! Can you do a pull-up?

    Well, I can still pull up my pants and skirts, but a pull up on an over head bar, not so much. I still have muscle nearing 70, but pulling up my body in hopes of building muscle is something I will leave to the young ladies. I see no point in such behavior, however I can still pull up a rude old man out of his wheelchair and slap him around. Does that count?

    Lateral Planet: The Long Night

    Sorry I kind of fell off the face of the earth for a few days there! He's doing much better now, he's home and pretty much back to normal, but as I say it kind of took all my attention so I haven't really been conscious of challenge stuff this week. Thanks! I covered them in fruit to kid myself it was a healthy lunch A day or two later she did ask how it all went so I let her know. She'll do a lighter application and more hairpins on the day. I understand that the heavier makeup comes up great in photos but I kept wanting to scratch my face or blow my nose and my eyelashes kept sticking together so I just couldn't get comfy! I'll look into eyelash tinting as an alternative to mascara and falsies but I think otherwise it's just a matter of practice. Bonus: happy puppy enjoying his spot in the sunshine

    Juice Bar - Rebel Hang Out

    I was trying to figure fictional characters lol but nothing was coming to mind. Serah from Ffxii? Or Raphtalia from Shield Hero but that one might be less known lol.
  19. EC wasn't happening (not even close to being able to do 30 in one go) but I did manage in 5 sets (form was probably questionable though)

    Flea Learns How to Human, Part 2

    I sat down next to Fat Kitty on the couch to make sure he’s okay and doesn’t hate me. He rolled over and is now sleeping on me so I guess we’re good. Except for the fact that I can’t reach my food so I’m still going to die.

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    Soon, we are still unpacking. We are at 32 weeks. Birth center for the birth, no drugs. This will help. the titles of each type are links. Does my water softener make you feel nostalgic? Today is a good day. Grocery shopping in the morning, then unpacking after lunch (which we had at home). We put closet things in their appropriate closets in the guest room and office, then set up the furniture in each. Everything in the house is now set up furniture wise (Still need to get furniture for the nursery). We still need to do wall decorations/knick knacks/empty boxes all over the house, but the furniture is done. Dinner was rice with butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar and a little garlic powder. Also some frozen stir fry veggies cooked in my cast iron skillet with soy sauce, rice vinegar and garlic powder. There was also beef cooked in the same manner, with ground ginger added. The meat and veggies were combined and dressed with black bean garlic sauce. It was very good.

    Okay, Ranger Brethren, I have some serious advice to ask. The company that put on the adventure race that I did is actually hiring for an assistant race director. I’m toying with the idea of applying. I don’t know what it would pay or if my career skills would translate but it can’t hurt to ask, right? What do you guys think?
