  1. Hey there.  Looks like we both fell off the map at roughly the same time.  Howz it going?

  2. Great job! And I love your challenge setup. See you next round.
  3. Good luck on that hike! Sounds brutal. Glad to hear you skipped out on the leg day right before your hike. My mountain runs always feel sluggish if I workout legs a day or two before.
  4. Sorry to hear about week 4 but it sounds like you still accomplished quite a bit! I plan on keeping on my goals for "week 5" too. We might as well, lol. I'm looking forward to the next challenge already.
  5. Challenge wrap up (4th for me): First Things First (workouts, 3 each week) - A, A,F, F Feed the Soul (meditation or walk, 3 each week) - A, F, F, F Cleanse (less drinking nights, two allowed) - A, A, F, A Reach Out (NF allies) - Only a few posts A, A, A, F Hmm, according to the above, I get to count my "Reach Out" goal and my "Cleanse" goal for this challenge. This will give me 50% towards level 4... I'm torn if I should keep my pseudo pass/fail scheme. On my workout goal, on both of my F weeks, i did get in 2 of 3 workouts and thos
  6. I had a stomach bug for most of the week and just couldn't get myself to do much. I missed some work too. I did get a 5k run in on Saturday, 29:08. My personal best this year (and maybe last year too). Weekly wrap up: I plan on doing lots of chores and yard work today to get my house ready for my daughter's swim birthday party next week. That means I'll probably miss the gym. I'm so far behind on my goals anyways. This morning is a good time for the wrap up. First Things First (workouts) - 2/3 F - Two workouts in but I doubt I'll get a 3rd today. I'll c
  7. I started out week four with a morning workout. I woke up at 5 sharp and just ran out of excuses. I was tired, like I usually am Monday mornings. Like a zombie, I dressed and drove to the gym. I'm proud of myself and my energy was really through the roof the rest of the morning. The afternoon crash hit me hard though due to the lack of sleep. Here's my workout (copied from phone, + denotes PR's): M: 4/25 legs and shoulders 1a kb shoulder press 45*7, 45*8, 45*8 + 1b max bw squats 17, 20, 20 2a db side raises 20*10, 20*8, 20*8 + 2b lunges 6, 6, 7 + 3a front hammer rai
  8. It's Sunday night and it's time for my week three wrap up. I thought I did really well this week but I failed to reach three of my goals! First Things First (workouts) - 2/3 F - Two hard gym workouts (and long ones) Feed the Soul (meditation or walk) - 2/3 F - Relaxing bike ride with the kids - Relaxing walk with the kids at the college Cleanse (less drinking nights, two allowed) - 3/2 F - Family in town combined with weak willpower Reach Out (NF allies) - Goal reached! A - Did well! Cheers to week four. I'm
  9. Family visiting us right now as well. I know what you mean by being off track. I have one more workout to log for this week and I'm struggling to fit it in somehow. May just not happen. Week four is about to start though (plus family leaves tomorrow, haha)!
  10. I do this too often. Once I start in on a workout, I'm usually good to go. But that mindset is what keeps from starting. Time to fight it!
  11. Thanks Rinna. Good job on the 4 pounds! I loose weight really slowly but I gain it back quick. haha I made it to the gym Friday morning, really early: F: 4/15 back and tris 1a assisted pull ups 40*6, 40*5, 40*4 1b assisted dips 25*7, 25*6, 25*7 2a trx rows 2 arm low 8, 7, 6 2b trx tricep ext's 6, 5, 6 - rope machine 3x1m, rest 1m, lvl 4 - KB swings 35lbs 25, 23 - row machine 10 min, 1920m concept 2 - 3.1 mi dreadmill 34:32 - 212 lbs. AM weight It's Saturday and I have family over. There's no way I'm getting a workout in. Plus, just finished wi
  12. Glad to hear it Rinna. Margaritas are good, but I usually just go straight for the tequila. haha. I hope the rest of your week goes well.
  13. Good week so far. Let us know how it goes with the trainer. I've been thinking about paying for one sometime but I'm hesitant. "Play Diablo III" should be done as first, second, and third items. Save the rest for when you're bored of playing. The rest will always be there but evil will not kill itself.
  14. Thanks Jarric. I wasn't drinking too much, it was just most nights of the week. One or two beers later and I didn't care about bad food choices. I was sabotaging any progress I made that day. Plus, I think it was disturbing my sleep. I'll drop to once a week next challenge I agree about the alcohol. I've also been thinking about switching out my coffee for tea for a challenge, just to see how I feel after four weeks. I made it to the gym finally this week (1/3). From my phone: W 4/20/16 Chest and bis 1a trx push ups 8, 8, 8 1b chin ups 3, 2, 2 2a trx flie
