  1. Ah, time slip! Sorry for the brief delay again guys, with the academic year etc starting and leaving my job I got a little sidetracked. Also my mother had quite a bad injury from pressure pot with burns on her chest, neck and arms. She's been in hospital, she's also caught an infection from it, but I think we're all just glad she is alive. I stuck to my goals, just need to catch up on y'all threads. Deftona, I'm scared just seeing how many pages I'll be sifting through for yours xD I'm hoping to take exercise to the next level and trial a sports or martial arts class. Should be good hopefully
  2. Kinda sucks but ah well, we all know this isn't above you. Moments like these are good imo as they allow you to flex out of your comfort zone and be observent/mindful/bring awareness in what we do. This is definitely what I like to do as it ensures that I don't ever get complacent or take my routine for granted. Just embrace and enjoy! :-)
  3. Congrats on all the hard work you're putting into this challenge! :-)
  4. Sarah this is excellent you are doing so damn awesome! Keep rocking gal! ;-) P.s. Also like how you worked you're finances into this to make you stick to your goals + saving money + less distraction. You killing several birds with one big Sarah whoop, that's for sure! ;-)
  5. Wow, beautiful photos Lara! Glad to see that even with all the external drama happening around you with tenants etc, you keep at it (no suprises there! ;-) Excited to hear more of your autumn challenge plans!
  6. Hi! It's okay thanks, I would say it's inbetween the Level 2 and 3 workouts in those NF workouts. Getting there, but not quite the level 4+ as i was before. I'm using some kettlebells/dumbbells but it's mostly bodyweight and jogging. Work does have me being pretty active though, hence why I have to 'discount' time from it sometimes, cause most of the time it's easy to come back from a long day and go "*sigh* I don't feel like it"So if you're given a 10min discount, you end up saying "*sigh* I don't feel like it. But I'm going to do it anyway!" My mind can try to talk itself out of an exercise,
  7. Oh yes, a bit of Tom Hanks in this thread and you can already start to declare this challenge a success! xD WIIIIILLLLLLLSSSOOOOOOOOOONN!!!!!!1
  8. Ah Lara you're such a champion! I hate those sorts of situations grinding/replaying in your head all day. They can be such a drain, but you completed parried and flipped all that on its butt! ;-), the obstacle is indeed the way!
  9. Sorry to hear some people don't even have basic manners KorN :-/ As for the second job, sounds like a plan, that environment really doesn't sound healthy. Any steps to progress or change that environment should hopefully be a huge a step up. Definitely worth preparing/saving up if you're unable to in the short term. "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are" :-)
  10. Excellent goals Sarah! I approve of your fasting strategies for sure, that's so awesome to here! And congrats on day 1! :-) P.s. Are you doing warrior fasts (24hr), by the sounds of it are you only eating once a day in the evening? Doing that daily is doable, but don't hesitate to dial it down if it's too much or change the pattern to avoid repetition + make the routine sustainable. Nice to hear all's swell! Keep kicking A!;-)
  11. Hey KorraNat! As someone who's also gone through some ups and downs through my academic history and have struggled through some dark times and family drama during, I can kinda relate to how hard and stressful being in the thick of it all can be. Great challenge list too. Oh big fan of avatar legend of anger here too, but believe it or not, I have only seen like half of korra season 1 :-O sacrilege I know! Seems like you're getting into the swing of things, awesome! Hope the trend continues! :-)
  12. Wow, excellent work! Especially like your time-tracking method.
  13. Great start to the challenge Lara! Lots of change happening I see, all for the better hopefully. Hoping for many more great days to come! P.s. these cat.gifs are amazing!
  14. Hello Newcomers! Greeting from the UK fellow adventurers, you can call me Iggy! ;-) To those who don't know me: I'm 25 years old, and I came to NF around 2 years ago because I was really ill and unhappy because of what living with asthma/well-over BMI affect my quality of life and approach with work and enthusiasm. That all has changed since last October, as I managed to reach neutral BMI for the first time + control my asthma after a 1 year+ of creating a sustainable/fun routine, and all thanks to the amazing NF community who guided me (and chewed through my winded-out posts!) challenge to c
  15. Hi! Just catching up on the last few pages, really sorry to here that you've had a rough few months, but on the other hand SymphonicDan said (nice to see you again bud!) you've made an excellent amount of progress in the past few months, and I'm sure you will soon see the benefits of all this hard work shaping up soon... Also, whichever day you do achieve that push-up (and it will happen!) I'm going to be partying too, hell, I'm going to instantly make that day a funday too! I hope to see you through your exercise plateaus too, I too have had an on/off year in this department, where I feel
