    So far, decently strong start. Grapes fill me up like crazy--I ate nearly a pound of them today and found myself full nearly the entire day as a result. Going to have to find something lighter to snack on at school too--I'm thinking seaweed...

    My pull up bar is my new favorite toy. That thing worked like a dream--did a few pull-ups on my own, burned out too fast, and immediately swung the bar down and switched to finish the exercise strong each time. Really great invention they did with that. I also need some heavier weights--time to keep my eyes peeled on craigslist.

    3. Tone up the ol' abs with crunches three times per week (can't book it for specific days, as my schedule is chaos). I have a cool lil' resistance band for that. Starting at 20 for the first session, then 40, and so on up to 100 per session.
    4. Eat 4-5 times per day. I have a tendency to let my blood sugar drop or whatever by not eating enough throughout the day.
    Welp, I've been doing 1, 2, and 4; not so much 3. I'll try to start today; I'll just overdo it in order to compensate for not doing it at all.

    But then, starting next Thursday or so, I won't be able to do much of 2 or 3 since I'm having a lil' bit of surgery on my stupid hip. After that heals up, though, I can take on some actual goals, like running and stuff, that I can't do now.

    So, I gotta drop out of the challenge. Don't cry for me, though; you can assume that I'm continuing to do 1 and 4 forever, because 1 was already ingrained in me and I'm managing 4 very well.

    Ah, sorry about that. I wish you a speedy recovery, though!

    Sorry I missed my Week 2 update...

    I did it!

    I did my daily Ab Crunches every day and I did my Saturday exercise routine!
    I was very proud of myself!

    2) Drink plenty of water each day (I intend to carry a water bottle with me to campus now)
    3) Eat more fresh foods (more fruits and vegetables) and quit/cut down on meat (which is especially bad for my health)
    4) Cut down on sweets

    [If I think of any more goals, I will be sure to edit this post.]
    Okay, so I've been progressing with goals 2, 3, and 4 this week. As for the first - I'm now registered for the Halfathon, but I've been procrastinating on training this week (bad Angel! ). However, I know perfectly well that if I push myself, I can accomplish this too. At least I'm doing some walking/jogging with my puppy (I've now been given the responsibility of taking her out for walks almost every day ).
    Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.

    I came across a post on reddit with some behaviour modification/habit forming tips that some of y'all might like: (link)

    Nothing earth-shattering, but maybe a good reminder of some easy ways to make the habit-forming process a bit more effective.

    ^ A lot of those are really awesome!

    My progress this week: No lies, it's all screwy. I ate food when it was available, which put me off of some of my goals there, but I couldn't help the busy schedule. Food is lower on my priorities than exercising, though I do want to eat healthier. Working out, I missed 2 days due to the craziness of my current schedule. However, I have some fixes for this.

    - Workouts: Do them right after school. No errand running on the way home--nothing--just go straight home and work out. Then I can shower, and eat, and then do any homework. I cannot wait for this damned daylight savings time thing to be done with. I need the sun.
    - Physical therapy: It's working out rather well to do it right after working out, but if I don't work out that day I notice I forget to do this too. So, I think I should implement my stretching routine earlier than expected. I'll just wake up earlier each morning, and do a small stretch DVD and my physical therapy then. That way, no matter when I need to go to school, I'll be sleeping and waking at the same times so I can adjust to this schedule. I can study in the gap times.
    - Eating: I'm going to have to spring for more convenience foods if I really wish to eat healthier. My idea about the chicken meat was spot on--it works great with everything--but I need more convenience meals set up. A bagged salad instead of making my own, and ploughman style lunches that I can just throw together in the fridge a week in advance.

    I'm okay with messing this up for the first couple of weeks.. I'm sort of entertaining an out-of-town guest, and dealing with school, and I knew it'd take me a while to adjust to this schedule and the sheer mass of studying I need to do that I am not at all adjusted to yet. I'll get there though. As school and my home life become more regular so too will my schedule.

    When I lived alone, I used to make a big pot of something over the weekend, then freeze it in meal-sized containers to eat for lunches and dinners. Not sure if this will work for you, but it was a great way to make sure I had healthy food around all the time, without having to prepare it every day.

    Third weekly update.

    1. Improve eating habits, specifically eating between meals.
    Last week I wrote: "Had one day that was not very good - filled with stress and distractions, and too much nibbling. I seemed to eat something between meals, but much less, and less frequently. I suppose that's good. I'm trying to watch when and in what circumstances I eat, so I can break the habit by changing the circumstances, or distracting/otherwise heading off the impulse."

    This basically holds for this week as well, except (1) I had lots of veggies on hand this week for healthy evening snacks; and (2) I realized that a good way to fend off the inclination to nibble is to exercise instead. I actually don't feel like eating after exercising, so I'm satisfied by some tea, quiet activities, shower, and bed. So, a bit of progress in understanding, and acceptable on the food front.

    2. Get more exercise: at least three times each week, in addition to martial arts practice.
    I exercised 4 times this week, plus found a better workout video. It is heavier on the cardio, which I need, and has 3 levels of difficulty/intensity for each exercise combination. I can do level 2 on all of them, and 3 on a couple, so I will work on this until I can comfortably do 3 on everything with good form/control. So, a good exercise week.

    3. Weight loss.
    None yet.

    Edit: I read the link @Randomnity posted, and wanted more information on association/dissociation, as it sounded interesting but was mentioned without explanation. I found a decent overview here.

    I'm down to 183 from 185. Now five pounds short of my goal.

    Another thing I've been doing, I switched from a daily 16oz can of Monster to 8oz cans of Red Bull. Just found out they have Monster in bulk at that size as well. So, there's that.
