  1. I also would do either/both - it'd be good motivation to get me back in the gym regularly!
  2. How do you stay on track with fitness/eating when life gets crazy? I've been applying to graduate programs for the past month, and every time I've gone out to do something that's not working on applications, I felt guilty, so I end up doing nothing. Ordinarily I would go box to help with the stress, but I haven't been for a few weeks at least. The good part is that application season is almost over, so I'm telling myself I'll get back to working out "soon," but I don't want to make a habit of falling off the workout wagon whenever things get stressful in my life...
  3. It's Sunday at noon and I'm eating breakfast of steel cut oats + peanut butter and a cup of coffee with 2% milk. This isn't entirely a bad thing since I've finally been catching up on sleep, which I've been sorely lacking for the past too many days. Yesterday, I didn't do too much in the morning - I worked on grad school stuff a little bit, but that's mostly happening today instead. I spent a lot of the early afternoon being nervous about walking this random person's dog (I'm just starting as a pro dog walker as my side gig, and really wanted to do a good job/am always nervous at f
  4. Made it to a second thread post finally - plenty of good to report, with still (as always) more things to work on. I finally made it to Target to buy microwave-safe Tupperware so I can cook my meals in advance, which actually was a big help this week. On Sunday, I made enough veggie-tofu stir fry to last me through lunches for the week. Not the most exciting cooking endeavor since it was basically just "make rice and throw every vegetable from the fridge in a pan," but it got the job done. So far I've boxed once and lifted once this week. Boxing seems to be getting easi
  5. Hi friends, It's basically been two years since I've been on the forums... kind of fell off the wagon (not with fitness quite as much as with posting, but there's been some of both) what with college graduation, moving to a new city, starting an Adult Job (sort of), commuting, and trying to find a new routine... But anyway, after being in New York for just over a year now, I finally feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, I had to choose between my rock climbing gym that I loved and the boxing/mma gym I joined a few months ago because of cost
  6. I feel this so much - I actually was/have been considering HRT for a long time because of this (and am still undecided), though the fitness activities I've been doing have been helping a bit with the whole body shape dysphoria thing since they have a lot of emphasis on upper body strength. Also, hi all! It's been a couple years since I've been on the forums - genderqueer boxer/rock climber/weightlifter over here
  7. Thanks, guys! I'm really glad to be back I still eat mostly vegetarian, but I've recently been trying to add some fish back into my diet, both because I like cooking it and because I needed a protein boost. I've been considering adding some meats back in too, but I haven't made a final decision yet. My rugby captains sent out our summer fitness workout series last week, which for forwards, includes a 3x/week lift and 1-2x/week cardio. I'll probably post it later, since this workout series plus 2x/week of climbing is basically my entire fitness plan for the summer. I've also created a pe
  8. Hey friends, So it's been almost a year since I last posted on this forum (dammit, school year), but I've spent my year being pretty active. So, now that summer's here again, I think it's time to start posting again. As a quick update of what I've been up to, I spent the whole school year rock climbing, and met some really awesome friends through the local climbing gym. I've become a regular boulderer, and would like to eventually get belay certified and learn how to top rope. Second semester, I joined the club women's rugby team (during winter fitness training, no less). I met a bunch of
  9. GUESS WHAT I WAS GONE FROM THE FORUM BUT I FINISHED THE CHALLENGE Ended up with B's for most of the goals, unfortunately, but overall I feel pretty good! Will post later today about how the end of the challenge went.
  10. So I'm a little behind on updating this thread, but I'm keeping my MFP log up to date and am on track with my challenge so far! Last week was a success with respect to all of my goals. Made all my running goals (including an almost-6-mile run last Monday), did strength training on Tuesday (with an 80-lb lat pulldown, a 22.5-lb dumbbell row, and a 35-lb squat bar), and went rock climbing on Thursday (it's my new favorite thing). I flew home on Saturday to MN to see my parents and some of my high school friends before the new semester starts, so that's been a lot of fun so far. Picking up eati
  11. I'm playing Platinum! Black/White's next on my list... haven't decided which one to play yet, though.
  12. I'm planning on signing up for the Brooklyn one as well! This has been my motivation to keep training with my running, haha.
  13. Props on getting so much done! Sounds like a really productive day, especially regarding the chores
  14. Yesss please. And Portland is definitely on my list of cities to visit!
  15. A bar-cade sounds like so much fun! I have put many hours into Gauntlet as well, in arcades as well as in the N64 and Gamecube versions. Rampage, Altered Beast, and Gauntlet are all so great. And thanks for the support! I'm crossing my fingers that the student rates for membership at the climbing gym aren't too bad... it looks like they have a deal if undergrads/grads want to sign on for an entire semester. What is a Larabar? I've seen them in the store in the protein bars section, and they look pretty good! I've been experimenting with different protein bars and have yet to settle on
