  1. Thanks for all the advice guys, this makes me feel much better. My aim is to build muscle, I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm happy with myself aesthetically, I just want to be stronger, so the lack of protein in my diet is what worries me. But yes I hear you all in that trying to do it all in one go is a bad idea anyway!
  2. Hi guys, So my issue is that I'm really hung up on the fact that correct nutrition is about 70% of seeing results from your exercising. Now I don't currently have much option for what I eat as for the past couple of months (but only for a few more weeks! Yay) I've been living off the generosity of my housemates so I can't be a picky eater. Unfortunately though because I'm so hung up on the idea that there's no point in exercising if you don't have a good diet I'm finding it really hard to sum up the motivation to exercise as I'm one of those people who loses motivation easily if I don't s
  3. I just made it on excel, might give google calender a go though, sounds neat. My work out is about half an hour of flexibility stretches and bodyweight exercises. I have it drawn on a piece of paper on my wall which I can't be bothered to go look at right now Last week worked well for the timetable. I didn't keep to some of it >_> (mainly the study bit) but I know that I can and that was what i was trying to test, so it should be good.
  4. Ok, I've come up with a trial timetable: Monday: Morning: Lectures. Afternoon: Lectures. Evening: Work out + light study Tuesday: Morning: (nothing planned) Afternoon: Monday lecture study Evening:(nothing planned) Wednesday: Morning: Lectures Afternoon: Dissertation for a few hours in library Evening: Scuba club/swim Thursday: Morning: Optional lectures Afternoon: Planned work out Evening: Wednesday lecture study Friday: Morning: (nothing planned) Afternoon: Parkour training Evening: Dissertation Saturday: Morning: (nothing planned) Afternoon: Planned work out & Dissertation E
  5. My dissertation is about whether you can educate the public through the medium of video games. Like can we learn about history from games such as Assassins Creed? Can we learn about science and scientific theory from various Sci-fi games? Appropriately nerdy ^^
  6. Bit late to the party but better late than never! This is the FIRST TIME I've been here since christmas! Which is awful. But at least I'm getting back into the swing of things now. Main Quest Creating structure in my life encompassing all my commitments INCLUDING a workout plan 3 Goals - Create a timetable with wiggle room (I feel if I make myself stick to a rigorous schedule I'll end up resenting it!) - Fit in my work out at least 3 times a week - Have more protein in my diet (And carry on with Parkour, but that's all intended in the workouts) Side Quest - Complete at least 2/3 of
  7. Done! Ages ago albeit, but better late than never. Ok scores: Paelo diet: Failed miserably. Turns out I just wasn't prepared to make the changed necessary to get into this diet. Mostly because I don't give myself enough time to make good food as I'm usually busy with something else. Parkour: I'm going to give myself a B for this one. I did train a lot, but it lacked quite a bit over christmas, other than that i think i did very well. TaeKwondo: D. I did go back, but i still didn't keep it up. I just really didn't want to go what with it being so dark out, and there's currently
  8. Parkour has definitely become a habit. I love it, love the way it feels, it's incredibly enjoyable, doesn't feel like working out at all. Taekwondo not so much, I don't know how I feel about it anymore, will have to see about that one. Paleo hasn't really worked for 2 reasons. 1. Expense, 2. the time it takes to make a paleo meal. The 2nd one may not seem like much, but when cooking isn't massively enjoyable and you're used to not having to spend much time doing it it's difficult to find the time to do something you don't really enjoy. I am eating much healthier though, so definitely so
  9. I held my plank for 40 seconds. Reckon I could have held it for longer, but I was in a rush this morning
  10. Feeling better about everything now. Gotten in closer with the guys i do parkour with so can do more sessions which makes me feel much better
  11. When do you think you'll be able to get back into climbing? I'd like to get into climbing, did a bit of it before the summer, only indoor stuff though, one of the only sports that I was actually really good at on my first try cos I'm so small and light Was a good feeling!
  12. It's been a couple weeks, not a couple days, I just only really realised it now. But next week I have some money coming in so it's not for much longer ^^ Thanks a lot for the support. It's good to have someone understand
  13. Not the best week. I'm religiously doing parkour every week but my dedication to taekwondo is ebbing, had 2 friggin meltdowns over coursework (all fixed now so no worries ). I dunno, I'm not feeling TKD so much anymore, I used to WANT to go do it, now it feels like a chore. I think it might actually be because of how dark it gets now, TKD is in the evening and I really don't think I want to leave the house in the dark for a 30 min walk to TKD and back again... Also I'm feeling the stresses of my diet. I don't have any money until next week (thank God it's not for much longer) which means
  14. Ok, the paleo part of the quest isn't going so smoothly. Think I'll change it to try and get in a couple of paleo meals a week than paleo days. I'm reallt suffering money wise at the moment. Final year of university and I'm not getting a job as I know I will not be able to balance it with my uni work as I'm finding it very difficult to stay motivated for uni (16 straight years of education will do that >_<). I can survive on my student loan, but this term I had to pay out a bit extra than usual so I'm relying on my lovely boyfriend a little for food When January comes around I can
