  1. You're so awesome, I can't even describe! Thanks for your really great support I will kick butt this week! I must! I ADORE Insanity! The best workouts and from experience I KNOW they pay off as well. Shaun-T is my heaven and hell haha. He make me laugh and makes me work my butt off. I've been doing that recently too! I've done the DvDs often enough that I memorized some workouts and improv them into warm ups or random strength workouts when I haven't done enough. I agree, they all kick butt. I remember when I first went through Insanity and I had Cardio Power and Resistence. Nah-ah, nooooo haha It was so painstakingly difficult I was always complaining during the workout, but it got done and it felt amazing afterwards. Well...mentally amazing. Cardio Abs is pretty bomb! Its hard keep form, for me, but once you can do it, it's definitely rewarding
  2. SECOND WEEK UPDATE Monday- Lord of the Rings Workout, ya'll! Of course with variations because I don't own equipment and I'm not much of an equipment person Here's the variations: 3 â€YOU SHALL NOT PASS!†Slams Pushups 7 Legolas Bow Pulls Renegade rows without dumbells 9 “One does not simply walking lunge into Mordor†9 lunges, each leg 1 Minute: Hip “Bridge of Khazad Dum†Wallsit for 1 min 3 Riders of ROWhan 3 bodyweight rows 7 Gimli “Shall I get you a box?†jumps. 7 Knee Jumps 9 Helm’s Deep-Squats. 9 bodyweight squats 1 Minute Tower of Orthanc Holds Wall Handstand 3 Eowyn “I am no Man!â€makers 3 tricep dips, one leg up on each side 7 Light of Galadriel raises 7 arm overhead dumbbell presses 9 “Army of Deadâ€lifts 9 pushups 1 Minute Samwise Gamgee Carries Plank for 1 min Tuesday & Wednesday- No workouts. Not the best week. I've moved past it and focused on the positives to get myself back in gear and I know I'll do better after these few weeks Thursday- Supernatural Jump roping again! I'm starting to understand how to push my body harder during this jumping sessions and its actually pretty relaxing because I can get into a state of working out without noticing and ignoring the whiny tired voice and loud excuses I give myself. Friday- OKAY I GOT ANGRY TODAY lol I was ready to workout but there's only one area I can do my workouts without disturbing the rest of the house and that's the same area the video game system is. Well you can guess the kid was on it all day and I didn't kick him out cause I felt kind of bad...but at the same time I didn't. So, a day I shouldn't have missed. Maybe I should have done some pushups and situps on the bed or something... Saturday- Okay, this was a really good day! I beat the kid to the room and he whined but to hell with him and I had an hour of body strength exercises and jump roping as my cardio. For some reason I was really pumped that day and was drenched and shaking when I was done. I don't know what it was, but I felt good afterwards. I even learned how to go high intensity when jump roping to get the heart pumping. Sunday- I haven't been sleeping well the past...since the beginning of 2014, so today I miraculously had this amazing nap after trekking around in humid, hot texan weather, which I've learned is awful, so I was so relaxed I didn't have the heart to workout...I really should have. BUT I'm also learning not to guilt myself because I'm still working hard and it doesn't matter the pace I will get to my goal. So a 3/7 this week, not the greatest but hey, progress is progress And hey, just because I'm slackin' doesn't mean you guys can't make it up for me! Make your goals and work hard everyone! "I don’t believe in failure, because simply by saying you’ve failed, you’ve admitted you attempted. And anyone who attempts is not a failure. Those who truly fail in my eyes are the ones who never try at all. The ones who sit on the couch and whine and moan and wait for the world to change for them."
  3. You are on top of this challenge hard core! School is definitely not going to stop you from advancing your skills Haha, loving these hobbit posts by the way! Smaug is a good metaphor for a challenging day. Week 1 was definitely the setting bar and you'll only get better from there. BRING ON WEEK 2! If it ever feels difficult just stay in the moment and think:
  4. Hahaha, you know my predicament with the running. I'm amazed at anyone who can do it and stick to it You a beast! Thanx for the boost! Very true with the carbs. I just need to go a little at a time, right? That's the best approach Thank you! I'll definitely push myself to stay on track Nuala, you're awesome for looking out for Assassins! Got my update and I'll keep going
  5. HeyheyHey! Here's my late update: Wednesday- I did jump roping for 40 min, mainly to see if I could, and it wasn't too bad! Killed my calves for a few days though, aha. I watched Supernatural as my timer and did fast intervals during scenes with specific characters then went back at a normal pace. I did hit the rope a lot but that comes with practice Thursday- I had assignments due Friday and I finished at 2AM. So... I was sad. No workout. Friday- COMEBACK DAY. I did Insanity Cardio Abs (my form suuuuucked). It was a good work out, and I pushed myself to get the form right, but it wasn't too intensive. Saturday- The family went to a park with a sand volleyball court so I played for 1.5 hours. I haven't played volleyball in 3 years so it was interesting and I shockingly didn't get tired for a while! I think it was the consistency of the sand was easier to move in than an actual beach but I won't dwell on it. Sunday- I usually have break days on weekends because (yadda yadda excuses) so not much to say for that day. Life Goal- I've been doodling on and off throughout the week but I only got some real work done Friday and Saturday, so not too bad but not what I wanted. Food- My family made nachos on Saturday...that's all I got to say. But the rest of the week was average, nothing detrimental 3 MORE WEEKS. JUST 3 MORE WEEKS. I usually don't count down until break since high school but...this semester. If I can get workouts in, so can you guys! Work that body, Assassins! "Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it."
  6. Thanks, gurl! I'm going to push hard til' the end! Thank you, vp! I did make it rather simple so I hope to destroy this So heyheyhey! My first update! Monday- 40min Cardio + Pushups/Squats Tuesday- TurboFire HIIT Mainly cardio with little bits of strength. School is almost done (THANK LORDIE) So the next three weeks you'll see bouts of crazy hard workouts, but mostly simple workouts until I'm out of the pits of essays. But I'll be consistent! Which is what matters the most to me, for now. I definitely stretched some more today because I'm noticing me getting sore easily but that's what happens when one is out of shape. I do wish I loved running more because I did that to lose weight for a sport before, and I dropped a great amount. Its just...running... Eating is difficult to rid of carbs because its in everything I usually have, but I'm definitely cutting down where I can. I drew yesterday! Wooh! And tonight I'll also get a piece going. Let's all start great, Assassins :-D "If you started your workout when you first thought of it, you'd be done already"
  7. Awesome job, gurl! Loving the thought process and Hobbit Theme! Excited to watch this progress, you're going to kill it
  8. Overall QuestTo become a super anti-hero female. Strong, graceful, sassy, and determined. I'll be working on various aspects of my life and fitness is up at the top! Main Quest Lose inches and gain strength Goal 1: Workout 6 Days a week w/ stretching before and after Goal 2: Eat Right (Grains and sweets will be the lowest of any other food group) Goal 3:Stay motivated with fitbud! Life Goal Draw 2 pages (traditional or digital) a day
  9. A steam game, definitely! Preferably Bioshock's DLC Part 1 &2 but I want to wait for a sale cause I'm a cheapo T-T So maybe Braid, Fez, Limbo. What's your landmark?
  10. Hmm, I guess per week makes more sense, cause people needs a break day, but when I wrote it I aimed for daily so I'm good with that Longer landmarks it is!
  11. Oooo, I love the rewards idea. There are a ton of Steam games I can work towards. I wish I could improvise workouts! But I have to plan them otherwise I have no clue if it did anything xD Food I improvise though and that works out but I need to have desserts restraint. PLAYLISTS, YES. I'm always looking for pump up music. And definitely on those books That's a good question about the points. If there are general ground rules, it will be easier to know when to push another to catch up, but then estimating it for ourselves is good for our individual goals that maybe don't measure with each other? Hmm, okay: Workouts= 5 points Good Diet= 5 points Small Individual Goals=2 points Large Individual Goals=10 points Reward Landmarks= 150, 300, 450, 600, 750 etc. Or we can do landmarks like leveling up and make the next reward a little farther away. 150, 350, 550, 750, 950 etc. What do you think?
  12. Thanks for the replies, gals! I'd like the idea of forming a trio group. We'll form a miniature alliance to help level-up ourselves. So far my idea is we can make goals for ourselves each week and have a point system to keep accountable. We can have a googledoc and set out progress side by side and make sure we've on the same track. For example: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ak9_jZjjIhvOdEg0SThmajc1cno1N0tVNnl4cWJ6TWc&usp=sharing This is a basic idea but throw any ideas you think might help kick into gear. @AyeshaSchroeder: I love trading recipes! I'm trying to one-up my cooking skills so maybe we can help out in that field as well
  13. After looking at fellow Rebellions, I am updating more info!: I'm 5' 7", and probably about 165-170. I'm aiming to get down to 135-140, depends on the muscles I'm building. So I'm aiming to lose 30 pounds in 8 months. Sounds fair! A former Californian but officially moved to Texas two weeks ago. I've begun PC gaming 4 months ago and I'm IN LOVE with the Bioshock series. My heart of pounding thinking about Infinite. I'm currently working on Dota 2 and Path to Exile. I love reading, animated movies, learning (more so outside school grounds), drawing, and hiking. Though there is no one around me that ever wants to go, and now mountains are scarce where I live...irony. Thus far my plan is to work on the Rebel Fitness Guide/Rebel Strength Guide that's been sitting around on my laptop. Though eventually I'll work up to TurboFire or Insanity again. I do love punching air and full body workouts. I also want to become a Shadow Assassin. Because of all the obvious reasons.
  14. Literally in the next 10 minutes, I am kicking back into fitness gear! Some background: I've played volleyball for 6 years and that was the highest fitness of my life. After completing my volleyball run, staying motivated and committed to working out has been difficult. My recent attempt was summer last year and I was able to complete to first 3 months of Insanity. Which is INSANE! But I suddenly dropped when school started up and I had a Hip Hop Dance class. Not the best decision. So I've gained all the weight back (and then some) and lost all the beautiful muscles. My life goal has always been to be at ultimate fitness by my 21st birthday, which is in 8 months. So this round of fitness is all or nothing. I really want to stay motivated and go all out to be faster, better, strong, and generally so hot people go, "damn". I mean, how empowering is it to have a visual depiction of how well you take care of your body? Pretty empowering! To stay motivated all the way, I am in search of a fellow fitness partner in crime that will vanquish all remnants of the bodies that couldn't do much to become the bodies that could almost do it all! We would stay in touch via email, nerd fitness messaging, or text and keep each other on track. We could have a google doc where we track our workout progress each day, to compare results and gives tips, and perhaps weigh in weekly/bi-weekly? I've not thought it all through quite yet, but I know we'll figure out a game plan. The main idea is to keep each other motivated--as that's the greatest enemy of all. Also if you want to do the next 6 week challenge, I'm all for it! I've never done this before, so if you need more information, send a word and I'll get back asap!
  15. Overall Quest To become Catwoman. Deadly, seductive, strong, and elegant all in one. To be presented with a challenge or obstacle and to conquer it without a bat of an eyelash. Main Quest Lose the weight and/or inches and gain strength Goal 1: Workout 6 Days a week I'm on the Insanity program right now and I'm beginning Hip Hop Abs today. I'm confident I'll keep to that routine! Goal 2: Eat Right (Big Breakfast, 4 small meals) I'm off soda, I'm drinking more water than I have in years, and I'm doing pretty well with food. I just need to keep up with lowering carbs, upping the veggies, and keeping sweets to minimum. As I've been losing weight I learned that doing strict diets doesn't work for me, I need to mix it up with my body, live it up, and have smaller portion meals throughout the day. So more specifically, keep to big breakfast and small snacks and meal through the day. Goal 3: Keep motivated (I have no idea what else to put here...suggestions are appreciated) My tumblr blog and this thread will be my main motivation to keep on track. I'll visit my blog everyday and post here 3 days a week. Life Goal Do something creative twice a week! Writing in a journal, drafting my story ideas, drawing, doing my wreck-a-journal, whatever! I'm making this goal small because getting healthy is a big commitment and school is starting soon and I don't want too much on my plate to the point which I complete nothing. And that's that! I'll bedazzle this first post later perhaps, but I need to workout, eat, and do some cleaning first. Excited to join you guys!
