  1. thank you! This is a huge help. I'll look into that. The little dictator loves to be worn around the house but it definitely halts some kinds of productivity so a no bake option isn't something I've thought if that would be perfect!
  2. So after falling off the wagon for a long time, I started to get more active during my pregnancy. Then preeclampsia set in. :( it halted all exercise and I gained 45 lbs ar the end of it all. Now I have a beautiful baby boy and a terrible self image. Along with terrible self esteem. I'm trying to be careful with how I lose weight so my milk supply doesn't dry up but I'm at a loss as to how. Has anyone else run into this? How did you keep your supply up while being active?
  3. A NEW CHALLENGE I joined the last one late by 2 weeks so I begin again! Things have been well stressful lately. I took a week off of the gym out of pure frustration. I know it takes a while and I'm probably being impatient but I haven't seen any results. Not a pound, not an inch. Very discouraged. The only comfort I can take is that I am lifting heavier. I have noticed Im stronger and my quality of life has improved. My last quest was a little ambitious so I'm scaling back a bit Main Goal BIKINI BODY READY! This is a mental thing more than physical. I have never been comf

  6. After talking to a few people I've decided that figure competitions aren't for me. I love how empowering they are and I love the idea of really throwing myself into the training but it really boils down to money. I just don't have the funds to spend on the trainer, the tanning, the swimsuit, registration.... all of it is super pricy. Doesn't mean I wont train on my own and maybe I'll revisit the idea next year
  7. I've taken to doing incline pushups with a bosu ball! The incline is perfect and now I can do 6 with perfect form. Im still working at it but my lower back is doing a lot better! Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
  8. Just saw this Nuala! Thanks for the support! Im slowly getting closer to doing a wall handstand but I don't think I'll have it by the end. Doesn't matter though Im closer now than I was 3 weeks ago! Who knows what the next 3 weeks will bring I go home to my parents this weekend. This will be the first time I see my sisters since I started going to the gym and Im realllllly hoping they see a difference because although Im definitely stronger my measurements haven't changed. Its discouraging but I wont stop. I broke up with my fella a week ago and its honestly heartless but not that sad, it j
  9. I definitely will! I'll have to check out t nation. I loved their article on yoga that works well with powerlifting. I incorporated it into my stretching thanks for pointing me in a direction. I'll even post my findings Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Theres a fitness competition I'm interested in and I've been humming and hawwing on whether or not to train for it. Its still months away but I want to get started now if I'm going for it. I've never been confident enough to try for anything like this before. For me this is about facing my fears, gaining confidence, trying something new and giving myself a long term goal to work towards. I've heard all the negative things one can possibly say about the fitness models "They aren't healthy! They're too muscular! They dehydrate themselves before the competition! I heard those girls have their bod
  11. New circuit includes 20 weighted squats 20 walking lunges 15 jump ups 5 assisted pull ups 10 dips 10 incline push ups 45 sec plank. 2 run throughs. I still skate for at least an hour 3 times a week. LS is training for a 5 k marathon and I have her doing interval running twice a week in addition to 2 circuits twice a week.

  12. Things have not gone as expected in this past week. I'm doing ok with the not eating out since fella and I are no longer together, not that I can afford ito eat out but I digress. My carb intake is higher than expected and I'm having trouble getting my protein. Quitting smoking is harder than expected. I did really good for a week and then my roommates came home. I find it really difficult to not ask for a cigarette/go out and buy a pack when they're sitting in front of me chain smoking talking about how awesome it is to smoke. I asked for assistance with my push up form in another thread and
  13. I was going to wait to do my first 6 week challenge with the rest but the timing is just too good to pass up. I may get to see my family once a month, because its slow at work I cant afford to go down this month. In 6 weeks my mom and my sister, my biggest detractors, are going to join me to go see Stars on Ice April 25.... 6 weeks from yesterday. I've been active 6 days a week for the past 6 weeks and although I have been seeing results I hadn't changed my eating habits at all. My six challenge is to keep me on track. Main Quest; - Create and stick to a paleo meal plan! I have
  14. How do I fix this? My back has always been a problem, from bad posture to malformed muscles due to repetitive movement injuries. I have been working on strengthening my back for better quality of life. Push ups are part of that. Although I can see that my form is wrong I don't know how to correct it :/ sorry for the link, cant figure out how to embed and the file is too big to attach
