  2. Oh wow, I am so sweaty.

  3. What a beautiful day! Perfect for a nice workout.

      It's a no excuse day!

  4. Flexibility training yesterday was quite painful but who knew I was that flexible! I'm working on box splits and the other one and ultimately I want to be able to do the splits in at least 2 ways and also do a standing split.
  5. Just had an awesome 30 minute powerwalk instead of a bike ride. Covered in sweat and I have a rather bad stitch!

      Totally worth it though right? Hey, ya gonna update your challenge?

  6. Ok guys, I'm sorry for this. Cycling on your period. Yes or no? I'm fine working out on my period but I'm worried that cycling won't end too well.
  7. It's rest day today but I thought I'd tell you my current weights/kettlebell routine that I do on a Thursday. I use a 6kg kettlebell because it's all I can afford. 20 bicep curls (10 each arm) 20 shoulder presses (10 each arm) 20 bent over rows (again, 10 EA) 25 weighted sit-ups 25 weighted lunges 15 Goblet Squats *repeat* It's not much but it's ok.
  8. I do sitting RT, I'll check out those exercises!
  9. Rest day is here, hooray.

  10. Nothing beats the LotR, Harry Potter and Gladiator soundtracks for me. I have them all on my iPod.
  11. I always assumed that curls are part of a lifting routine. And how would I do push ups with a kettle bell?
  12. So Wednesday is weights day in my new fitness plan. My current routine is as follows: 20 bicep curls (10 each arm) 20 shoulder presses (10 each arm) 20 bent over rows (again, 10 EA) 20 Russian Twists 15 Goblet Squats *repeat* All of this is done with a 6kg kettlebell because 1. I'm poor and that is all I have and 2. I'm weak and can't lift more than 6kg. So please help me out as that just isn't enough.
  13. I only planned for a short 15 minute walk in the sun, but I managed to get lost and have a nice 30 minute walk instead.

  14. Today is calisthenics and walking day so I thought I'd share my current calisthenics routine, it goes in an 'upper bod, core, lower bod' order. It's quite basic and is mainly just to build up my muscular strength to a level where I can move on to stuff like pull-ups and chin-ups. Okay, here's the routine: 10 regular press-ups 20 sit ups 15 squats 5 diamond press-ups 15 sit ups 10 squats 3 clap press-ups 10 sit ups 10 squats 5 wide grip press-ups 5 sit ups 60 second Wall Sit It's a fairly short routine (15 mins?) but it really aches afterwards and will hopefully build muscle!
  15. Okay, I'm starting at a pretty basic level of fitness and I want to lose fat (15-20 lbs) and gain muscle but also to become more flexible so my new workout plan is molded around that. I'm starting small with no more than 30 minutes of exercise a day but here we go: Monday: Cycling (30 minutes minimum) Tuesday: Calisthenics Workout + 30 minute walk Wednesday: 1 hour walk Thursday: 2 hour walk Friday: Cycling (30 minutes minimum) Saturday: Calisthenics Workout + 30 minute walk Sunday: REST DAY. So it's pretty basic. 2 days of pure cardio and 3 days of strength training with some extra bits a
  16. Wow, I haven't been on here for almost a month. I shall come clean. Apart from a weekend of hiking, I have completely quit the fitness thing until yesterday, when I started working out again. I have gained weight, lost any desire to exercise and ate like shit. But yesterday, I saw a picture of myself and realized what I was doing to my body. Additionally, I really struggled to keep up on my hiking weekend and felt really bad for having to keep stopping because I was so unfit. It ends now.

      Welcome back! Sometimes, a real-life illustration of why fitness is important is all it takes. Don't be too hard on yourself, just jump back in.

      LostOne! Alas,here I am.

  17. I've been seriously neglecting my challenge, my body and my mind of late. I need to renew and start fresh. Deep breaths. Workout, Study Hard, Relax, Eat Well, Do My Hobbies. Ok, we're ready.

    1. Ba'sini'on


      And the race is on!

  18. I'll find out what the hell they are, and then I'll do them tonight I have a wooden gladius that I hit things with
  19. Those days when you realize you're still 600 calories under your calorie limit, ooh I shall have fun hehe

      I usually think "Damn, but the fridge is empty"

  20. Ok, I'm really into it today. Really eating under my calorie limit and I'm just about to go out for a kick-ass Spartacus style workout with some sword work, shadow boxing, calisthenics ect. Should be good.
  21. Okay guys, bad news. It's only the first week of the challenge and I'm already down to a B in 1 of my goals. I went on a major binge last night and ate a whole massive bar of chocolate that pretty much counts as 2 bars of chocolate. I'll make it a B- as I also ate some chocolate buttons. I was also out of the house since 8am yesterday to 3pm today so I couldn't do any French study or writing yesterday, but I won't change my French grade, as I did have a one hour French class yesterday. In terms of writing, I'm just doing 750 words today instead, as I haven't written in 2 days. So yeah, the
  22. I'll be honest, I'm more of a Saxa kinda girl, if you get my drift I'm going to the carnival tomorrow, I just know alot of walking shall be involved. I tend to just go for a run as long as I can make it for my current workout plan, and perhaps do some push-ups and a blogilates video.
  23. I've had to skip 2 days of writing (yesterday and today) so I'll be writing 750 words on Saturday evening :L
