  1. Oh man, I don't even know where to start. My name is Chris (the girl kind) and I used to be an Assassin what feels like a million years ago (2013); well, an Assassin who's always loved to lift weights. Life and countless (5) international moves have happened since then, and I stopped coming to NF. My working out has also been quite spotty in the past few years, there's been some really good stretches along with some appalling ones. Between a weightlifting-related injury, 2 crowdfunding campaigns mid 2014 to early 2015, a roller-derby related concussion that I'm still de
  2. Guys! Crazy news! We're going home on Sunday!!!!!!
  3. The honeymoon was lovely! No computers for either of us (which was a first) and I read a book a day, lounging by the pool. We're not the resort type of people but doing nothing, not even exploring, really felt good. The funny bit with the whole pool volleyball business, is that I was almost drowning half the time; it had rained really heavily the previous day and the water levels had gone up 2/2.5 inches, meaning I couldn't reach the bottom without being completely underwater (I'm only 5'3) most of the time, yet I still beat them! Ha!
  4. Now, a little update as to what's been going on for the past 2 weeks or so: - I never ended up working out while still on our honeymoon. I really wanted to but Mr De_maas would wake up so late every day (think between noon and 2pm) that I wouldn't be able to workout in the morning and then, by the time he'd wake up, I'd be starving and we'd head out for breakfast. It'd be way too hot to workout in the afternoon. That being said, I did swim every day, I kayaked once (I got seasick from it....!) and I also played pool volleyball for close to 4 hours one afternoon (I was playing along against 3
  5. You guys, thank you so much for the welcome!!! :D I couldn't be happier to be back!! My arm is doing just fine, I hope it'll stay this way once I start working out again. I can't wait to stalk your threads, I've really missed you A LOT!
  6. Injuries heal and plans (radically) change. But one thing is certain: it's finally time for me to get back on track workout wise. I have barely done anything since I hurt myself in July. I've missed it so badly, I simply can't wait to get started again! We are now in Fiji, so no access to a gym whatsoever; I'll therefore be doing Steve's Body Weight Brigade (Rank 2) workouts. That's it, that's my goal for this challenge, I really just want to find my beloved fitness groove and strength again A small side goal though is for us to actually enjoy Fiji. I know it sounds very obvious and silly
  7. Not very good at posting this week but I'm CRAZY busy! I just picked up a project I had set aside for over a year and am starting getting quotes and everything from pretty much everywhere so I can start production + launch a crowdfunding campaign. It's a really cool project and I'm really excited about it Besides that, I had to spend today shopping for an evening dress. I hate going shopping for myself, it terrifies me. And I'm not even exaggerating!! Worse is that I still have to go shop for some shoes and some sort of cheap jewellery. The really annoying bit is that I gave away my heels a
  8. Ok, I can't seem to figure out how to post pictures here.... Got it all ready only for it to tell me that it doesn't take that format, it's good old jpg so if somebody can tell me how to work this magic, I'd be very grateful!
  9. Yay Mily!!! That's awesome!!!! :D
  10. Haha! ok putting an album together Aw! Thanks Lex! Means a lot coming from you
  11. What's the craziest thing they've asked for you to reach the cache? Caching really sounds like SO much fun!
  12. Wow Mily! If that isn't insane progress already, I don't know what is! I totally agree with you that you should get more sleep and less stress. Getting enough of the first and as little as possible of the latter will absolutely help your progress and allow your body to recomp better, on top of making you feel better in your head. Also I'm glad you shelved your scales, you don't need to be obsessing over what number will show up. You need to feel and see the difference, that's what's important, not the number of pounds you got rid of or put on. That's an extra dose of stress that isn't need
  13. I'm absolutely with Nymeria on that one, it is incredibly awe inspiring that you don't let anything pull you down. I really need to learn from you and remember that it's not because I can't do what I love that I can't do anything at all.
  14. Hahahahahha! This video is absolutely fantastic!!! :D You're doing really well with the challenge, keep it up Sam
  15. Aww! You're going to make me blush!! Well the end of last challenge + the 2 weeks in between weren't particularly fun, they were all about getting rid of our stuff, running from A to B to give our stuff away, etc etc. Not fun, trust me! But yeah, the pressure and hassle was well worth it Can't wait for the gala premiere, it's going to be amazing! It's not the world premiere as it'll take place a week earlier in NYC but hey, Peter Jackson will be there and, hopefully, Richard Taylor whom I would looooove to meet and work for! I'd totally give up being a nomad for the opportunity to work at We
