Re: Carolina's Journey to Extreme Hawtness

Thanks so much everyone for writing. It's one of those tiny things that help brighten a gloomy day, you know? Yes, rough week. Hubs had a second gallbladder attack, but he was able to control it an avoid surgery once again. I'm so proud of him, he's sticking it out and trying alternative remedies re...

Re: Carolina's Journey to Extreme Hawtness

Thanks Ben and Amanda. I'm with you both on thinking this surgery is a huge no-no, and my hope remains that he'll stick to the natural remedies our naturopath recommended, along with the diet change. Fingers crossed! And also thanks both for your input on the guilt issue. Although my logic tells me ...

Re: Carolina's Journey to Extreme Hawtness

Thank you, Robert! Our mentor is Amanda Grace Wing, and yes she is amazing and very encouraging! I have a question for you. How do you handle (if you ever feel this way) the 'disappointment' or 'guilt' you may feel for not working out as often/ as hard as you know you should? I have been looking aro...

Re: Carolina's Journey to Extreme Hawtness

Very long and stressful day. Ended up in the ER with the hubs having a gallbladder attack. Thankfully they didn't have to take him into surgery right away, and he has decided to treat it in less invasive ways (mainly diet. He does not eat healthy at all.) For "exercise" (not really) I spen...

Cheers!

Re: The Iron Clad log: Training for Tough Mudder

You are absolutely right, that was me! Awesome memory you got there, Ben. Yep, the vegan thing felt kind of great (surprise surprise!) and so I've kept it on. I just watched the last video about Tough Mudder posted on your blog. Holy cow! You've done it before and I'm sure you'll do fantastic again,...

Workout- Friday January 6th I did yoga, woot! Ok, I know it may not be much, but I have done zilch in over three weeks, and I'm discovering I almost need to coax myself into getting back on track.

Re: Carolina's Journey to Extreme Hawtness

Lol, yep! Drinking smoothies is something I've done for some time now, mainly because I realized how fast it is (when in 'formal' training I wake up at 4:50 am-- so any time savers are a must!) Karen, you may like this website! Tons of wholesome smoothie ideas here (and no need to worry too much abo...

Re: The Iron Clad log: Training for Tough Mudder

Well, well, well, if it isn't Iron Clad Ben himself! Nice to see you here :) And in case you're wondering, I'm a fellow blogger, reader of your blog and occasional commenter. Cool thing that you got all your complete stats at the chiropractor's. Isn't it exciting to find out what your 'real' age is?...

Re: Karen's...

Hi Karen, I'm not sure, but I think you may have been assigned to Amanda during the New year's challenge? I'm with her as well, so I figured I'd take a chance and come say hi :) I can totally relate to what I've read in your journal so far; getting started is probably the toughest part. For me it's ...
