  1. Good ! Keep going with the exercises ! Well for the food, just stick to what works for you, better going slow and lasting than rushing and stopping. And for sure enjoy the journey great to know that you'r feeling good about yourself ! It's the way to go !
  2. Welcome !!! Rebboting live is on ! Life changes are normal and you can build a new one by starting building fun / cool habits and working on your fitness too! You'll find ways to enjoy the journey !
  3. That sounds great !! What are you planning to do then ?
  4. Came out from the monastery... intense meditation and training over... back to normal training !

  5. Great !!! keep going ! and with your kid, it will be great to share a passion !!!
  6. There is no association near you to be able to train indoor, when it's raining ? I am quite lucky in this field as i can train any day of the week, under rain, snow, as we use two training fields, one indoor, one outdoor .
  7. Ok some feedback on the training for those too last weeks: Well for the training routine, it has been quite fun to fall from the bed and .. train, but the funny part is that as soon i decided to train outside, it started to SNOW !!!! So doing the push ups in the snow was quite hard at the beginning but i started, and at the end of those 2 weeks it became quite easy.. the only problem is the skin that cracks with the cold... so lots of moisturizing cream... The other hard part is to run...in the snow, i spent more time sliding than running, so i stopped running to do some home cycling... The last interesting part of training in the snow was the relaxing part, when go go back home close the fire place (very relaxing and pleasant). The great impact of this training is also that the diet becomes an easy game as it becomes the least problem to deal with, and also the fact that you burn much more calories. Now the weather is becoming warmer, so everything melts... so training in the mud or iced ground. So i keep going I have found some way to keep focused despite the weather and the hardness...but still searching new tips to make my training strong and still long lasting the harder part for me..
  8. Awesome objective !!! Keeping healthy homemade snacks (almonds, apples) or drinks (green tea, cocoa powder without sugar) is a great option, and use relaxation or visualization to avoid the cravings help a lot.. You can also try to explore the feelings that trigger the cravings and acknoledge them to get rid of them ...and get focused on the stronger/ happier... you get each time you defeat the craving, and the plan if you don't succeed to fight the craving to get back on the horse ! One thing that help me to not over eat: i write down all the food it eat in a pocket notebook, so i can dissociate to the situation and keep in control...
  9. Sure keep us posted ? Have got an eating plan ? What is in term of actions / results your challenge ?
  10. Here we are for a new challenge, a new training chamber to enter in !!! This challenge will be to truly master myself by giving my life a real change: In fact i am going back to college to make it possible! But my challenge is to level up my entire life like a....SUPER SAYIAN !!!!! Well i don't have hair but the idea is here ;p ! "Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power" Lao Tsu. So how to get my life to change, by changing some habits, step by step... 1.TRAIN SMARTER & HARDER: 1.Train to calisthenics one day out of 2 (folowing the convict conditioning routine) 2.Train to weight training one day out of 2 3.Rest the third day 4.Train to martial arts every day 2:DEVELOP MENTAL TOUGHNESS 1. Train as soon i am awake 2. Train without music, fency tools, or people looking at me, etc. (external motivational help) 3. Train outside in any weather conditions In some words get things done..."Learning to embrace the suck, to endure and hold pace even when everything in your body is screaming at you to slow down, is not a quick skill to learn." I will put some pictures of my outdoor trainings ! 2:REST AND EAT WELL 1.Keep on going paleo 2.Rest at leat 5 hours per night (yes i am more a 3 hours sleep guy...) 3.Meditate daily. 4.Get an efficient rest method done once a week: massaged weekly / or go to hammam / sauna... Well let's go for it, and post a report weekly as a minimum...
  11. Actually that would be a great help if you had ideas of snacks or easy meals to carry !!! Or other ideas !
  12. What are some things you learned about yourself this challenge? I learned that i needed ton plan ahead my meals in the week to get them right, otherwhise it goes crazy! I learned i am ust harder that i thought in training but my level is qute law compare to my goals. I understood also that i have to plan and emergency solution if i can't do a training or a specific meal to avoid extremely fat food or training in a rush very late at night. And mainly that all is about mindset and habit.... Did you find any particular modes of training that you are particularly in love with, that you weren't before? I worked on bodyweight training that helps me to train anywhere anytime (well even if it looks completely strange for people some times ) What have you learned about fueling yourself via food and sleep? Well i react very fast to my diet, if i follow my diet, my fats melt, if i don't they really come back fast even if i train hard. So i have to be diet concerned all the time to get my job done. How are you going to act upon what you've learned? yes... First: plan my meals and prepare them in advance Second: train harder as i am not at the level i want to be (actually quite far to be self defense teacher) Third: plan emergency training and food if i have very short time And also (maybe the most important) not forget to enjoy all my trainings and not get simply obsessed.. So just keep intensity and fun !
  13. Results at the end of this challenge !!!! 1. Eat 100% Paleo + power lifting (to get fit and strong) in a every day base: Ok 100% for the power lifting ...but....went completely of the diet as i changed of activity (going back to college....) So quite a failure this time for dieting, to complicated to adapt fast to loosy food of the campus, and short breaks. I have to adapt that for next challenge ! 2.Work on inner strength by doing pranayama / chi kong or meditiation for 30 min per day yeah 100% !! 3. 2 hours of martial art training per day. That was quite good as i stayed around 80 % 4. Keep my assassin's mobility skills on (climbing / Parkour / swimming) every weekend. And 100% as i joined a swimming class ! So a good sporty result, but a very bad one around diet, which has as a result to not have improved my body weight as much as last time... So diet is key !
  14. Thank's a lot ! That answers mainly my question, and my approcah of the theme! The article of Jackson Yee is very interesting !!! It's amazing to see is evolution in practice and mind set. All is about mindset and practicing this toughness mind set, going over difficulty, facing problems with the right attitude... And for the mantras i understand that ! yours are yours and i have created mine too! All is in mind and about creating the habbit of the good mindset...
