  1. Haha you guys, I'm terrible at forums. I always forget. Ok I'm doing it now, I promise....
  2. I'm just posting this here, going to add goals and stuff by monday!
  3. Oh yes it was there from the beginning. Thank you! What do you love the most? We are planning on being in Australia in December for christmas and then NZ for 2 months after that. Probably go on holiday to Tonga or Samoa during that time. Then Off to San Fransisco and meeting up with some Camp Nerd Fitness buddies!
  4. Good one Bearlee, will do that. Here's an update: I didn't really achieve goals other than eating well and walking. I did lose 1 kilo though. I'm working on something cool for next round though... oh yeah, my fourth goal has been going great! haha!
  5. Heel pain - go to a sport shoe store and ask them to evaluate your walk/run! They can recommend shoes that will help you with your problems. Keep it up!
  6. Ok so update time: I've been getting my walking in. I need to get some vitamin D tablets today because I learned that bronchitis is often a side effect of vitamin d deficiency. Which makes total sense because as soon as it starts getting darker and rainier I don't go outside anymore, I get SAD, and I get bronchitis. I have been feeling better this week so I picked up the training again. I did a huge squat set on saturday, some epic yoga and a 8km bike ride on sunday, and today I did 100 bent over rows (on each side) (don't have a pull up bar) Eating is going pretty good. I'd say I'm letting two avoid things a week slip into my diet. oops. I also find that I've been eating bigger portions of food, because I'm inside and not in a hurry to get out. Working on it. The sharing thing has been the easiest goal. I feel like it has changed my life even. I'm making this awesome planner at the moment, and I'm testing it as I do it. I'm so excited to share it with the world! ____ Bearlee I would read the art of nonconformity, pursuit of happiness, 100$ start up. - because the art of non conformity gears you up to the idea of being different and that being a good thing. Then the pursuit of happiness helps you to figure out what sparks you into action, and the 100$ start up gives a lot of examples on how to do that. I will be writing about these things on my facebook page soon, so thanks for the inspiration! let me know what you think of them!
  7. You are so right, pointing in the right direction and inching your way there is gonna last so much longer than a big leap to health. You rule.
  8. You are so awesome! I love seeing how you're going all the time. Keep up the awesome work!
  9. Last week: 63,500 steps. And I developed a chest infection. A bit out of action, but not entirely! I walk every day. Eat good foods. The plan is still on I just can't muster the energy to chase a 2 year old and perform feats of strength, especially not upside down. Yoga. Recovery. Rest.
  10. Bronchitis. Whenever it starts to get cold...

      Oh, no! Feel better soon!

  11. Kyliewyotie: it really is the most delicious thing in the world. I gulp it down, it's impossible to savour. So this week has been great, not skipped a workout, been eating to plan... UNTIL Dani comes up against the cold virus! She chooses liquids and rest as her weapon. I've just been keeping up walking and doing a small amount of strength training, when I really wanted to turn it up a notch this week. Trying not to get out of the exercise loop. Probably going to be doing yoga tonight just to get something in.
  12. My husband has joined me for workouts! I have designated him as a giant assassin. He's 40cm taller than me. over a foot! It's been great bonding over exercise. I'm so happy to keep it up with him I've eaten my avoid food for the week - chocomel. It is dark chocolate milk. It's amazing and was totally worth it. So if I see something I'm not supposed to eat now, I just say "oh well. not for me"
  13. Bearlee, I've read that book and Ramit's teachings have really changed my life. I travel around the world with my two year old and my husband... something I didn't think would be possible either. Chris Guillebeau's other two books are like the other parts in a trilogy - they go over how you can make your pursuit possible.
  14. Welcome back! you totally got this! I found when I fell off the bandwagon, getting back on was easier every time.
