  1. People who are doing poorly at both meeting challenge goals and getting on the forums....this girl
  2. ...sort of. I'm trying. Or at least trying to try. lol
  3. OMG. late to the google reader party! Hahaha. I use The Old Reader which i really like...because it's like google reader.
  4. Yup! That I was! I know!! I'm excited too!!!! Now I just need to go and find all my "old" friends again! Today went well. Got a work out in at home (still counts!) and ate really well. I didn't give in to cinnamon buns at work, I didn't eat cookies at home. I'm feeling like a rockstar. I got a great stretch in last night, and now I need to do the same tonight before bed. Better updates to come!
  5. Oh my gosh it's been a long time since I've been around the boards! BUT! I'm now living in Surrey, and would totally be up/down for hikes!
  6. Awww, I moved from Saskatoon to Vancouver last fall.
  7. Alrighty...this is my first challenge back since...oh July of last year. Crazy life changes have happened, and now that I'm pretending to be more settled, it's time to take control and make shit happen. I feel what I really need and want out of this challenge is to Make Fitness a Priority!! just for good measure, I went and re-read this article from Steve....https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2015/01/26/why-you-need-to-be-selfish-and-put-fitness-first/ My short-term goals include performing at the aerial showcase at the studio where I teach fitness classes in the fall/winter and absolutely slaying. I've put on fat and lost strength since last summer and I'm not happy with the routine I could put together at this point in time. This is my performance from earlier in the year, which I'm happy enough with, but I definitely wasn't strong enough to do the things I wanted...and I *might* have only put this together 3 days before the performance. My goals from now until the end of 2016 are largely gaining strength while lowering my bf%, and improving my flexibility. I know that it can be hard to work on strength and flexibility at the same time, but I figure I'll give it a whirl and see what comes out in the end. Missions: 1) Practice aerial hoop 1x/week - this should be easy enough because I can practice after teaching my conditioning class Thursday nights. I just need to make myself do it!! 2) Go to the gym 2x/week - Ideally Monday/Wednesdays, but it'll depend on my work schedule. I just started a new job, and right now the hours are a bit all over the place. 3) Stretch daily - even if it's just a couple of sun salutations in the morning/evening. I want to work on hip mobility and hamstring flexibility working towards full splits, and also back bends. I do have starting photos from a bit ago: Food: 1) Eat clean - "pretend" like I'm doing a whole30. Basically I'm going to follow whole30 guidelines as much as humanly possible while living in a house that makes things difficult to do so. To put systems in place for this I need to meal plan/shop/cook every week. Life: Reconnect and make more NF friends around here. I went to camp last fall, and with the camp Facebook group being active, I haven't spent much time around these parts anymore. I want to check in with my own thread and other people's at least 5 days/week. And here. We. Go!!!!!!
  8. When you're stirring your bowl of veggies and chicken and think "cheese would be so good on here" and then remember you're not responsible enough to keep cheese in your house #paleoproblems

  10. This time of year all you see is "do you like New Years resolutions or hate them?" "Do you have New Years resolutions? What are they?" ...blah blah blah. I think it's important to remember that we can start over and resolve to be better and do better any day and that we don't have to wait for the new year or the next month or a Monday. Once you realize you want to do better, just do it! Don't live life by anyone else's rules. Try new things, and if it doesn...

      Your comment may have gotten cut off but I got the jist and I agree. I don't really care much for new years resolutions and typically I don't do them: if I want to change something, I do my best to change it the day I decide :D.
