* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

And no progress for me. I spent a chunk of the first week travelling to a funeral and staying with family. This week I've had a massive cold sore and swollen glands so I've been doing my best to rest round about decorating my daughter's bedroom. So not much rest really, I just haven't been doing any formal exercise.

Here's hoping for a better week next week.

 
(((rocquelaire))) I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you feel better soon!

Doing good so far. I skipped exercising today because I've been so good* about staying on top of it, but apart from that, I'm still chugging along.

Still waiting to have enough energy to go swimming. Hoping I can manage it today or tomorrow.

Rollerblade trip to the local hardware store to get piecesparts to fix the toilet. In the grand tradition of all Doom-It-Yourself projects, I didn't get everything the first time 'round and had to go back. Well, I got more exercise out of it, at least.

Me too, despite the occasional slip-ups. Today was a bit of a test: I had to buy a new pair of jeans.

The good news: I fit into a 33 W pair (my goal is a 32-inch waist). Now keep in mind that clothing sizes have suffered from inflation in recent years, and the comfort of the 33 W fit depended on the style and maker of the jean...but this basically means that I'm back down to my pre-Winter From Hell size. So progress.

The bad news: It's going to be harder to get down to a true 32 than I thought.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

One thing that helped: When I was considering getting some ice cream or skipping the morning run, I reminded myself I'd have to report back here in this thread on my progress eventually. It helped keep me on track.

I did bi's/tri's and legs today. And no junk food, so I'm happy. And tomorrow I start a new job (sandwich shop), so no more daily ass-sitting for Sasha. Hooray!

I want to lose 15 pounds. I've been on a weight loss journey for a year now (March 19 is my one year anniversary) and know from experience that this *should* be a modest and attainable goal.


I have lost 2 pounds. I've cycled through this 2 pounds a couple of times, so I'm not throwing any parties yet.

My confession is that I had an extra piece of chocolate yesterday (I allow myself a little square of 86% dark every other day, if I feel like it).

I got out in the yard 2 days this week. I started to feel overwhelmed yesterday at how much there is to do- I genuinely think it'll take me all summer, if not longer- but I'm trying to remember to take it a day at a time. The plan for next week is definitely two days, preferably three.

My diet hasn't been great this week - quite a lot of junk food and Easter chocolate! I did manage to get out for a couple of decent walks as well as building furniture though so at least a step in the right direction.

No weight lost yet but none gained either which I'm counting as a win given the afore-mentioned junk food. 😳

This weekend I did an hour of work in the garden and last week I (mostly) stayed within my calorie goals. This is progress!

I fell off the wagon and bumped myself hard this last couple of weeks. The lack of structure that comes with Easter break and a case of strep throat don't mix well with workouts. My total practice logged time remains at 5h 20m.

That seems to be going around. ;-)

I haven't been great about my exercises lately, either. I was working for 2 weeks, with a fair amount of physical work, especially lifting heavy things, so -- between that and being exhausted in the evenings -- I let the exercises go.

But I wasn't working this past week, so I should have gone back to them. But didn't. :-(

I will try to do my exercises tonight.

You are not alone in that.  

I'm pretty much back to where I started the season, thanks to another surgery.  For now, it's back to being on bed-rest and using a walker when I absolutely must get up.  The procedure was relatively minor, so I'm hoping to be back on my feet with a cane within the next 10-12 days. Not quite ready to give up on that goal yet.
