  1. It was really good cake! We actually have a small gym in the building, that has showers! So I have a locker there with my towel and toiletries so I shower before work! It's great! This week isn't going to be great. Training three days so I can't do classes. Update on my wrist: finally went to the doctor, and I'm going to physio today which sucks for the chequebook but is needed for my wrist. 6 weeks and it's still not better. Sigh. Trying not to get depressed as I really enjoy Stronglifts and you know, working out. It's amazing what hurts the wrist... even spin classes as when you're standing, you're putting weight on your wrists on the handle bars! Ug. Sorry. Rant over.
  2. I am running to and from work today! Unfortunately due to training at work I haven't be able to get to do any of the classes so far this week. Sigh. And it was someone's birthday on Monday so cake... sigh. Still, at least half way there!
  3. Your goals look good and attainable. However, number four... well, personally I'm not a fan of juicing, you're not getting the fiber usually, it can have a lot of sugar and what not. I'm glad that it's working for you. I might suggest crunching some numbers between your usual sweets and meals and a juice... why not just grab some fruits and veggies? Still, if it's working for you, go for it!
  4. Looks good! However, while I haven't really checked out the body weight programs, are you sure it's a reasonable goal to go from beginners to advanced in six weeks? The third one isn't necessarily measurable, or easy to grade, perhaps say 90% paleo or whatnot. Otherwise very good!
  5. Personally I wouldn't have a pass fail for the first one, also the second one seems very unforgiving. Maybe you want to exercise 4 or 5 times a week, so it's more flexible.
  6. Yesterday I ran to and from work! Mostly... I tried new shoes in the afternoon and that was a very bad idea... but I still walked home, so I did the distance, which was the main thing! I'm counting it!
  7. Thanks! I'll do some research, I honestly hadn't thought about my grip not being correct, I thought my wrists were just weak, I'll definitely look into that!
  8. Any feedback would be great! Thanks!
  9. I see the update, that's great! Good for you! That's no small goal! You can do it!
  10. I would like to suggest quantifying your "drink more water" this doesn't seem specific enough. I'm also not sure what Caffeine purification is. You're on the right track!
  11. I'd personally like to know how far it is to work, otherwise it's hard to tell if that's realistic or not... but otherwise it looks good!
  12. Looks good! Specific and attainable!
  13. I'm certainly no expert but your goals look good!
  14. Goals! Run 30km/week min Do 3 classes per week (workout classes) Average calories under maintenance by 100 per day. Finish all readings before each class Starting point: 5’5†153lbs I got up to, on Stronglifts: Squat 145lbs Bench Press 75lbs Row 75lbs Overhead Press 55lbs Deadlift 155lbs But then my wrist couldn’t stabalize the weight on the 145lb squat and bent backwards… six weeks ago… I think it’s better but I’m working on strengthening my wrist and elbow muscles then I’m going to deload and carefully work back up and keep going! But since I don’t want to overdo it and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to go back to Stronglifts I haven’t put goals in for this… Currently running approx. 20km per week (5 STA) Doing 2-3 classes per week (2 DEX, 1 STA) Going over maintenance most days… had life trouble, trying to get back on track (3 CON) Fell behind due to life events, trying to get back on track (4 WIS)How to achieve goals: I run to and from work when I can, but the weather’s been bad… 5k each way, so hope to get up to 3 days a week. There are classes during lunch and sometimes after work, I want to keep going to these, make the time Watch and track what I eat, make healthier choices! Make a plan, make the time, stick to it! "I'm not telling you that it's going to be easy, I'm telling you that it's going to be worth it."
  15. Some half decent points, but my personal favourite is: "However, many women lack the fortitude and dedication to ever see incredible results from lifting due to “being a lifter†rather than “being a student of weight liftingâ€" I also love how he complains about women saying "they say" without saying who "they" are yet he's talking about literature supporting or not supporting X without providing any proof! "Women don’t tend to care as much about science and research – anecdotes are often sufficient for evidence" Um, what?! "Some women make sexual-sounding grunts when lifting; men grunt but it doesn’t sound sexual" I seriously beg to differ! There are two older gentlemen at my gym who always grunt as if they were in bed... This whole thing makes me facepalm.
  16. I've only ever had one comment, but a lot of stares, even while guys are driving... I say have your headphones on, but low enough to hear the comments and ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings. If someone's following you, physically approaches you etc. then I say definitely take a picture and make like you're calling the cops. Either they'll back off or you're ready anyway. Good luck! Stay safe!
  17. Hello! Thanks! Yes, yes I do! Goals: - lose a good 20lbs (keep exercising and either go Paleo or at least watch what I eat) - run 40k per week (depending on weather, I'm doing about 20k, I used to do nearly 60k...) 10k per day when I run to and from work, so up it from 2 days to three, then to four! - do at least 1 unassisted pullup, I want to start doing inverted rows and gravitron pullups - do at least 10 real pushups, I can do a good 8-10 on my knees, so slowly start with one or two in my toes, the rest on my knees and just keep pushing myself... - consistantly do yoga once a week, I have a DVD, it's simply a matter of making the time!
  18. I'm on MyFitnessPal and someone posted a link to Staci's story, so I started reading her story, the articles and finally decided to join the community. I like MFP's community, but there's only so much on weightlifting, I thought here might be better!
  19. So, I'm new... but not new to fitness. I'm about two months in on Stronglifts, I'm really enjoying it! Thinking of doing Paleo but with dairy... lol. I also am really looking forward to doing the next challenge! Goals: - lose a good 20lbs - run 40k per week (depending on weather, I'm doing about 20k, I used to do nearly 60k...) - do at least 1 unassisted pullup - do at least 10 real pushups - consistantly do yoga once a week Anyway, so just saying hi... HI!
