  1. Damn! You're killing it with those lifts. I really don't know anything about form or lifting in general, so I may not be the best to say. But I am impressed! Wowza!
  2. After my parents divorced and my dad moved to another state, he used to record himself reading kids books and send them to my brother and I. Then we would follow along in our copies of the books. Before we could even read. Best gifts ever. I loved those tapes. I thank my parents for giving me my love of reading.
  3. Any tips for those of us who are unable to use the apps? There are at least two of us. Or are we just unable to participate?
  4. You can choose to identify with an existing companion. But I'm more interested in getting myself ready for being a companion. And the exercises aren't assignments. Just a bit of themed fun. Obviously, you can take them on as part of your challenge. But I'm not wanting to pile more things on to people who are already dealing with goals. I know I plan on pull-ups being part of a future challenge. But I have basics to work on now. Sounds like you're not much of a Martha fan. I'm really not. I love Donna, though. You are working with similar goals to myself. I'm doing the BBWW 3x a week as a chal
  5. I'm so jealous of everyone and their fun with The Walk. It makes me want a new phone.
  6. Great to see you're back at it. Holidays are rotten. And I know how much of a strain work changes can impose on your life. At least you're back at it. Good on you!
  7. Oh, and thank goodness I didn't have a lot of physical tasks at work today. I hurt. Everywhere.
  8. They say money doesn't buy happiness, but it sure would alleviate quite a bit of my stress. Thanks for the encouragement. Tried to update last night. But I couldn't sign on. Don't know if it was the site or my computer. I deleted my cookies and turned the computer off. I was going for a restart, but it was late so I went to bed. Something worked. Here I am. So, Tuesday morning I dove into the BBWW. I was pretty wiped from the warm-up alone, but I more or less made it through one circuit. It took more time than I would've preferred. A bit more resting than is preferable. But I got throu
  9. Um. I won't have a working phone for 2 weeks. I can use it with wi-fi, but that won't help me on my walks. It won't track me. So I can only estimate my distance and I won't be able to use it with those apps. Plus, it looks like many of those on the list are incompatible with my phone. Does this just count me out from being able to participate?
  10. What a great first week! Please pop in and share your success with your fellow Companions in training. We've had a quiet board and I'm trying to get a bit more momentum going there. I know we can all benefit from the inspiration of each others successes. Hope to see you in there soon. And here's to kicking week 2's butt!
  11. Congrats on a successful first week!
  12. Happy birthday! I hope you had fun. Despite the pizza disappointment. It's probably better. Now you won't be craving it post b-day. I went paleo on my first challenge. I loved it. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and I got to experiment with cooking. I usually hate to cook. But it was kinda fun trying new things out. Especially when I got the thumbs up from my family on whatever I made. The only reason I'm not doing paleo this challenge is that my biggest concern for the coming year is keeping a tight budget. Paleo can be somewhat on the expensive side. Just wanted to give yo
  13. Okay, don't feel so bad for it now. Glad to know I'm not the only one who relies on being read to from time to time
  14. What a wonderful first week. I am so jealous of your hike. I absolutely love hiking. When you're out there with all of nature and taking in all that beauty and fresh air, a workout just feels great. Sure, you're exhausted when you finish. But during is so euphoric. I'll eventually have to make hiking a priority in a future challenge. Sounds like the sleep is getting to be trouble for you. I can understand. Just do what is best for you and hopefully you can get a better schedule going when life better lends itself to it. Congrats on your other goal successes, though. You are killing it!
  15. Thanks for the encouragement everyone! First week has been mostly good. Friday and Saturday I got rained out from walking. I did manage to get it in on Sunday morning. But that didn't meet my goal of 3 times a week. On Friday I did jump rope in my garage for some cardio. Saturday I worked on form for both lunges and wall push-ups. I have decent form for the push-ups, so moved on to the lunges. As with the squats I'm going to hold onto something for balance until I get better. My eating goal was okay. Saturday and Sunday I didn't give myself enough time to prepare a meal and ended up getting so
