No idea :).

Haha.

How about we post what we do each day, so each day is a fresh start.

If that doesn't work, we can try for weekly.

Looks great!


How are we going to track? Are we just going to list what we've done each day?

I'll track mine the day after and start fresh each day.

My images keep coming up blank, I can't get the image files right this time, not sure why, but it is really giving me grief. I might just have to take a picture and post it if I can't figure it out again.

I like that idea. Especially with having to spend more time at home. Maybe do it as a team?

Looking forward to April. Originally it was planned as a "One more thing" challenge. Did we want to theme this to more of a Corvid challenge? Now sure all that would entail, but it could include:

-trying recipes that involve foods you don't normally buy due to limited resources
-working out indoors away from people
- following the changing guidelines in your areas
- making healthy food choices (eating colors for immune health)
- checking on neighbors/family that can't get out (civic)

We could do a bingo board(s) and work on it as a team or individually.
This could also look just like the One More Thing challenge, you just add in One More Thing, that improves your life even though things are different right now.

Thoughts?

I was thinking about you and wondering how the traveling was going. I'm glad you're home safe, sound, and healthy.
I'm a big introvert so staying at home isn't too big of a burden for me. Although I have a feeling I'm going to have a bit of cabin fever by the time this is done.

I'm glad you are doing alright.

We are doing okay. We came home early from our road trip as it seemed like the right thing to do.

Stocking up on groceries was a little odd as many of the shelves were bare when we got back, but we are far from hungry. We just need to get a little creative.

I hope everyone is staying healthy. LIke many others my state has called off school for several weeks. My husband works for the county, he's still going to work but the building is closed to the public. Phone calls only. Sounds like it might advance further next week.

That being said I have plenty of food, toilet paper, and other necessities. If it gets bad enough that I have to stay home I should be fine. How is everyone else doing?

We don't have typical curb side pick up. We take our regular garbage to a transfer site. It's a dollar a bag. I'll have to inquire there about how much it will cost to take it there. The biggest thing will be taking it apart to I can get it out of the house.

Good for you!

Around here, people just put them out for big trash day. Not sure what your local rules are. Maybe the place that you get the new on will take the old one, unless you go with used. For big stuff we usually drive to the dump, it is $10 a truck bed. Maybe one of those will work for you. I know I live more in a city than you do :).

My struggle is the cold. It is really really cold out and I still need 7000 steps today. BRRRRR.

I'm odd too. Nothing wrong with odd.

I've been doing just dance on the wii and some videos on YouTube. Hopefully it won't be long until I get a new elliptical. I just don't know what to do with my old one.

Boo. I'm sorry :(.

For indoor cardio, there are a lot of you classic floor exercises (jumping jack. skipping rope) as well as doing WT in a circuit to get the heart rate up.

I usually end of pacing, but that's because I am odd :).

I'm really bummed. My broken elliptical is unfixable. I'm going to look into getting a new one but that's several months away. Any suggestions for indoor cardio without equipment?

I can't enjoy a walk if I'm freezing my butt off. Today is supposed to be warmer (in the 30"s) but my road is a skating rank. Yesterday was only about 15.....that's just too cold to walk outside. I love where I live but winters are just too cold and long.

That's a good thing to offer! Safe place to get some activity in.

I brave the cold most days. I slipped at the end of December, but caught myself right as my fingers brushed the snow. Ha. I was feeling pretty flexible after that.

No worries about falling. No walks outside for me when it's cold out.

I've basically been working out at home. Elliptical and YouTube videos. Thinking about starting up walking at the school. My local school has a "walking program" and lets the public walk the halls after school. Even has a route mapped out so you know how many miles your getting in. It's not the same as walking outside but it's something different.

January can be a rough start. We have been lucking out with nicer weather, but i think the cold rain will be coming back next week.

You beat me. I was going to do this and forgot.

I'm ready for 2020. I have goals and plans on how to reach them. I just wish the new year started when it was nicer out and I could get outside and walk without the fear of falling, freezing, or catching pneumonia.

A new place for 2020 to discuss the challenges while not cluttering the events themselves.

I got the BINGO challenge up. Sorry it went up a little late, or was it early :). 1 AM on new years day. HA! At least I remembered.
