  1. Fitness this week - have been to the gym once this week, going again today. Looking forward to it! My biggest issue is diet. I gained a lot of weight since my lifestyle has changed significantly. I went from working in a concert venue (walking and carrying a lot, making long hours) and going to and from work on my bike to being in the office all day and getting there by metro (which is a 3 minute walk from my home), my lifestyle has changed significantly and I'm not sure where to start to get everything back on track. Gonna do some diet research today and come up with a plan...
  2. Luckily they're allowed at mine! There's a small 'functional' zone that includes CF-type stuff like (googled it) "functional rack, slam balls, plio boxes, bumper plates, olympic bars and kettlebells." I think there's such a popularity to it that they have to do it to keep their membership up. And yes - I intend to get back into rugby and play with my first club again
  3. Final decision I'm going to do a collage that I'll illustrate over - the final theme is based on the pictures I can find but will most likely be related to plastic in the ocean. The materials Piles of old news papers, acrylic colour pens, a pair of scissors (and still need to buy glue) Select and/or prepare a PLACE TO WORK. Kitchen table! Timeslots/prep prep: I'll collect images tonight, do some sketching this week while traveling to/from work. collage: Will clear an afternoon or evening next week (about 2-3 hours needed) illustration/finishing up: 2-3 hours
  4. Ooo I'm down for this! Sadly haven't been very creative over the past year. Coming from an art graduate... I am ashamed. Think about art. What kind of art do you like to look at? A lot of different things. Mostly contemporary things linking to societal issues. Rothko made me cry love his work! What do you like to make? Have you ever made art before, and how did it go? I'mma combine these two questions - I did art academy as a bachelor's degree. Illustration was my major, motion graphics the minor. Loved it, but decided in year 3 that I didn't think I'd want that to be my profession. So yes, I made art, mostly illustrations, sometimes an animation. Did pretty well. Kinda miss it. What might you like to create for this challenge? Do not begin working on your piece yet. Just think about it. Something about humans messing up the ocean. Plastic soup? Pulse fishing?
  5. 1.b: today I bought carrots, chickpeas and sweet potatoes, tomorrow I'll prep my work lunches. Made a gorgeous quiche for dinner tonight. Body is very sore after yesterday - great to feel this way again! Back to the gym tomorrow
  6. Thank you! It's good to be back I see I wrote thesis instead of master - I studied Communication science. Re gym: I went to a crossfit-ish gym for a few months and am now attending a 'regular' gym (a lot more affordable + right around the corner, so no excuse not to go). My routines are mostly based on what I learned at the CF gym and I'm a big fan of weight lifting and HIIT - the combination is perfect for rugby too.
  7. Will power! I recognise this - cake offers in the office are so hard to say no to sometimes. Good job Good luck with your challenge, you seem to be doing great so far!
  8. Two years since my last visit?! Oops. Time to start over! Back to square 1 Me in a nutshell: I am a 27-year-old rugby enthusiast. A lot of good things happened in the past year: I obtained my thesis in October, started my first serious (office) job the same month, moved cities in January (back to my favourite city). Of course, this had some consequences: since moving, my rugbyteam was too far for me to travel up and down there three times a week. I didn't play rugby that much and I didn't visit my gym as much as I should have - with this new life having a big impact on me and my routine, I decided to focus on work and a new life first before focusing on everything around it. This break from sports is clearly showing now: I feel unfit and gained about 10 kgs. Not too affected by it (as I knew it was a temporary thing), but I've had enough and would like to get back into shape! My aim: to be fit before the rugby season kicks off again in September. I'm focusing on three things: 1. Fitness (cardio, HIIT) 2. Diet 3. Strength (core + legs) 4 Week Structure Week 1. Back in the Saddle pt I. a. step 1: back to the gym! b. make a diet plan c. make a 4 week work-out plan Week 2. Second gear. a) gym on Mon, Wed, Fri b) bring a healthy lunch + snack to work 3x Week 3. Sticking with it. a) gym on Mon, Wed, Fri b) bring a healthy lunch + snack to work 3x 4. Kicking it up a notch: HIIT! a) gym on Mon, Wed, Fri b) bring a healthy lunch + snack to work 3x Specifics are coming later this weekend. Look forward to the coming four weeks!
  9. 20/20!! Also I solemnly swear to respond to all my favourite's peoples forums this weekend. <4
  10. HAHA. The University pulled the harshest pranks on me. In an introductory course about boring tedious things (I mean: how to read/write references and find books in the library and seeing if an article is legit and blablabla), we have an online quiz of 20 questions. I plowed through all the questions, taking me ages, and I had 19 out of 20 correct. HURRAY! The test can be done over and over again, and it showed me which one was wrong. Let me just adjust that one answer, I thought, what could possible go wrong, I thought. Hello, I am Icarus and I flew INTO THE SUN. Redoing the quiz just gives you twenty different questions. Of course. Why didn't I think of that? I can hear the demonic laughter of the online university quiz demons. Brb, redoing the whole damn thing.
  11. Baaa, thank you! That might actually be the after dinner cravings! Tiredness, or dehydration. Thank you for finding another puzzle piece, Terah! Still working on them, too! Some days better than others. Also - I'm making assumptions. If I grab the crisps, that could very well mean savoury, right? Haaa! So you are the mysterious, secretive, uncanny, enigmatic, dark and abstruse DFG! I for my life never connected DFG to DrFeelgood, as I have seen you around the forums. This also means I am very busted on not being up to date in the Doodlie Thread at all. Nice to meet, fellow Flip Bitch! I have no idea what you backs do either! Thank youuuu <444456
  12. I ran into a list with Whole30 recipes a-plenty. In case people need a little extra inspiration with their Whole30.
  13. Soreness > yay! SPROUTS! Buuuuuh :c I love them and bf hates them - except when ovenbaked with bacon and maple syrup. Cheater.) Thanks for sharing your grocery list with me, might implement it again as I'm sure I eat too many carbs (or more than I'd like to, anyway). Adding my favorite thing of all the things: <3<3<3<3<3 In regards to Skyrim: I picked it up again yesterday as I find walking around Skyrim the most relaxing thing after lectures/homework. Always a goodiegoodie, but am considering the path that you've spelled out before. The non-sneaking-armor-clancking thievery speaks to me.
  14. You're doing awesomely! And admire above sentence ~ snacking after dinner is the biggest struggle for me.
  15. I JUST FINISHED AND ABSOLUTELY ADORED IT (also because I saw the plot WAY before my boyfriend did and I AM THE SHERLOCK!) But yes - very trippy, sometimes even a bit beyond silly (waterfalls and what not). But my my my did I love this episode.
