  1. Doing good so far rogaecia. Every week you don't fail your goals is a step of progress. Every week you don't ace your goals is a lesson for learning how to improve and be the better you of which you dream. You have a strong group of supporters who are happy to hear of your successes. Looking forward to your next week.
  2. I had a thought about doing Yoga poses for the mini-challenge as well. Just checked and found out about it. I have never done yoga either, but have a passing interest in trying it. As for your Pizza order, do not beat yourself up over it. Quite a few lifestyle plans actually call for a "cheat day". They stress not to go overboard, but by having that day once a week or twice a month to treat yourself (moderation is key) then you do not need to feel guilty, nor do you need to feel like you are denying yourself. In the case of your pizza, if you ordered a large, next time order a small. I
  3. Tateman, I wish I had your willpower, and ability to self-reason. I will eventually, but I wish I had it now. It is good to see you are making such positive strides in your life! Don't underestimate the power of pictures. Like you are recording your bowling, take a picture of yourself each week to track your progress. I bet you'll be amazed at the change in the end, especially with your motivation!
  4. LegoLady, it's okay to have a setback or two. This is your life, and you should enjoy it. But think of how much more you will enjoy it when you are able to look back at the choices you have made, admit there were some you were not happy with but see how you have grown and improved who you are. Rebelling against change isn't always good, but it isn't always bad either. It's about choosing which change benefits you. Times are tough when you fight against the establishment, but sometimes the establishment needs to be brought down. You aren't changing who you are, but you are. You will sti
  5. Remember OmHawk, lift with the knees. You can make your moving in to be a workout, and count it toward your goals, if you fit it into your routine. And all things in moderation. You can fit in study time, just plan your time out. Don't have to be completely rigid with the plan, but stick to it as much as you can, to fit in your goals. You retain the most knowledge during the first and last 10 minutes of study. So why not fit in 15 minute study breaks between moving in?
  6. If I had an iPod, that would work. I admit, I've missed a few days, but I'm picking back up. Not going the full two weeks I did last time. August 5 - Day 1 Week 2 Goal 1 Circuits Started a second circuit today. I made it up to 5 pushups, then was unable to continue. My left knee still burns initially when doing my body weight squats. Beginning of a knee problem? Beginning arthritis? It went away as I continued. It definitely burned at first though. Will edit in further goals as the day progresses.
  7. August 1 - Day 4 Goal 1 Circuits Was able to complete a circuit again today. Due to a intense burn in my left knee, I did not start a second circuit. Don't want to cause any permanent damage. This wasn't the normal muscle burn, but it only affected me when doing my squats. Will see how it feels tomorrow. Goal 2 Bicycle I did not ride today. Thought about it twice, and never acted on it. I've got to figure out how to stop this spectator mentality when it comes to what I should be doing instead. Goal 3 Cook I wasn't that hungry tonight, so I heated up some frozen egg rolls. It
  8. If you wish to have energy and do not want to have coffee, try an apple.
  9. Habits you make can be the hardest change you ever make, or the easiest one. It all depends on your overall mindset, level of conviction, and ability to recognize the habit and its triggers. Sometimes you know a habit's triggers and being able to change the habit is very simple. Other times the trigger is not what you thought it was, or is a complex trigger with multiple triggers, or if/and/then triggers. If you don't know the trigger at all, then it all depends upon learning what you can to correct the behavior. Is it possible to change a habit without knowing the reason why you do it?
  10. You can do this LegoLady. And remember, when you use the excuse you don't have time, think about if you really didn't have the time, or just didn't make the time. Continue to be awesome, and I'm here if you need me.
  11. Life is full of opportunity costs, Tateman, just a matter of making sure the opportunity is worth the cost in the long run.
  12. Tateman has better advice than I can give this time. You can do it. Frustration is good, because it means you have not yet given up. Frustration is always preferable to apathy. Fight through the frustration and find your solution. You'll learn something new about yourself, and have more information to beat that last imp to level up!
  13. Take a page from Thomas Edison, first invent 1,000 ways to NOT ride a bike or swim. Seriously though, both tasks are easy enough, if you get over the hardest part of it. Fear of something new. First step will be to try and balance on a stationary bike. It will not be easy, but you are much less likely to hurt yourself by getting a feel for how the bike leans. Then walk the bike. With you on the seat, feet barely touching the ground. This will further provide working experience with the way it will balance. The further you can go without pushing yourself again, the closer you will be
  14. Okay. I was only able to push out a 10 minute bike ride. I am spent. I forgot I had to take Mom to her doctors today, so I'll be up for a few more hours. I hope the plumber comes by today. After that work out + bike ride, I want a shower.
  15. July 31 - Day 3 Goal 1 Circuits I forgot to do them in the morning. I did them before bed so I wouldn't miss a day at least. I was able to complete 10 very shaky pushups, which translated into one very shaky plank. I'm wiped out, but I completed a circuit today. It's a start. Still breathing hard as I type this before bed. Goal 2 Bicycle Did not ride today, but I should change that. While I am still wore out from my circuit, to reinforce it. Goal 3 Cook Cooked a ramen soup for dinner before bed. It's a start, I'm going to cook a hamburger or chicken tomorrow. Goal 4 Study
