Outline: Pick one good habit, diet or health related, and practice it every day for 90 days. Post your data, observations, difficulties, questions or insights frequently if possible. If you have no access to internet, update as soon as you do so we don't send the cops after you.

Before joining this thread, please take as much time as needed. Formulate and communicate your habit you are working on, keep it brief. It may be helpful to restate it each time you post or periodically so others understand what you are working on. Others are here to help you and you to help them. We are in this together. We are a team.

The point of the work shop is to grow your mind, not necessarily shrink your body.

If you complete 90 days, PM me and I'll send you an official email of completion, INCLUDING YOUR NAME ON IT!!!...FROM ME!!!

PS. I am open to revisions or clarification to the above. Another set of eyes and minds may see something and add or remove something important...


Welcome to part 2 of this ongoing challenge thread. The first thread is found here.

I have successfully completed 90 days and am about to start the next 90. I feel secure in my eating, exercise and sleep habits, which comprised my previous goals. My current focus will be on not wasting so much time on the computer (a bit of an addict here). Later today when I work out the details I will post my specific goals. I suspect that this is going to be a struggle for me but as my signature states "if you want the results you have to create the causes".

Jean, congrats again. I have to keep a limit on my online time, too. I don't have specific time limits, but I have a hierarchy of important "tasks" vs complete time-wasters. No time-wasters unless the more important stuff is taken care of, as well as my IRL daily to-do list.

One rule that's helped me is no "trying to catch up" on Twitter, Facebook, etc. If anything important happened in anyone's life and I didn't get a phone call or run into the person IRL, then I'm not close enough to that person to worry about it. Fight your FOMO. If I want to use social media, I just jump in and don't scroll down very far.

Day 61

1. Activity: the usual lazy weekend 'nope' X
2. Weigh-in: done
3. Supps: done
4. Food: also nope X

Food freebies used: 9/5

Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe I have proven to myself that corn is as bad for my arthritis and allergies as gluten. I'm mourning here. I may never eat Doritos again. Those were an occasional treat for me. "Hey, they're gluten-free." But this is the second time that I've had them with an otherwise clean diet, and (1) my back is so sore I have a hard time putting on pants and socks ( ) and (2) my allergy meds are suddenly rendered almost useless. My nose is on fire here. Sigh. Well, at least I know. It could be worse; I always think of all the folks with arthritis whose quality of life could be massively improved if their health care providers would just entertain the idea of molecular mimicry and inflammation triggers.

I thought of retooling my remaining 1/3 of my 90 days, but I think I'll just wait until the next 90-day cycle. It looks like I won't be laid off this summer, and the shift I'll be working would be a good one for me to cycle to work a lot of days. That will be one of my goals.

I waste too much time on the computer. I do much better with absolute rules so I am setting some absolute rules:

1. No computer use between the hours of 9AM and 6PM except for my Buddhist teachings and tracking food on Cronometer.

2. No computer use in the morning until after I meditate.

3. No computer use after 10PM

Congrats, Jean on completing your 90 days! I like your new goals. Too much computer time is a problem for a lot of us...I limit mine too. I'd like to be on this site much more but just don't have the time for it.

Woo hoo! New thread!!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I was at my brother's for the day for a pot-luck get-together. I was tempted to just blow it and bring junk, but I put together a veggie/meat tray with dip, and filled up on that. SIL made some fabulous meatballs with just egg and spices in them. I had a few vodka/diet pepsis, and a treat of some Glutino cookies he bought. These kind of get-togethers/crazy meals boggle my mind at how many of us (myself included) used to eat like this EVERY DAY. I was uncomfortably full afterward... and that used to be my 'normal'.

Notes:
I was hoping only to take a pass for a "meal" off plan, but sure enough...eating more than normal carbs awoke the carb monster. So I had to take one of the passes for a day off plan. Back solid today.

25 min watching video of subject matter without stopping it, and then reading thru what I wrote without stopping, a little editing. Project 2.

Kristine, glad you got thru the pot-luck. I have some Glutino bars I am using, had a coupon for them. I usually only eat 1/3 bar at a time to make sure the carb count is low for that snack.

Nancy, awesome job on the weekend. You did better than I did, especially if you were there overnight. That always did me in, if I was visiting my parents. Even though I was happy to go, it stressed me out enough that I'd rather be stoned on food than stick to plan.

mviesprite, my brother offered me the rest of the package to take home, and I tried not to react in complete horror. "NO... I mean, no thank you." I see other Glutino products on the reduced rack here quite often.
