  1. I think it's just a matter of whether or not it lines up with your goals. If you can't keep up with the aerobics but can/want to do other cardio stuff at home.... awesome. Strength training is fantastic - it helps with like, life. Like, with everything. Again, I think it's just a matter of determining what your goals are, and then working toward them. Like, if your goals are get strong/fit whilst still maintaining enough energy to do college.... and the aerobics class is helping you get strong/fit but is working against the maintaining enough energy to do college.... then ditch the aerobics
  2. Squatting with the bar/tiny weights again, as opposed to just lunges/leg machines. Glutes are TALKING today!

      Haha this is the day after! My legs are like stiff wooden boards!

  3. Yup so I've been AWOL. Needed to take a break from NF and tracking stuff. Plus I felt really de-motivated my last couple challenges, and kind of bored. Didn't know what new things to challenge myself on. So I let logging fall to the wayside....but fear not! I've been consistently going to the gym and stuff (except for the time when I was sick.....for a week.....oh yeah and the time I had to go the hospital because of a pinched nerve in my shoulder and then had to take another week off). I've been hiking a decent amount, and in fact just got back from a 4-day hike/camping trip up to Ca
  4. Hey kids, I'm back! Challenge: Train for 5k (or 10k) Night Race on Sept 25! To complete this, I must: 1) Run at least once a week 2) Do 2 other cardio exercises a week (This can be any cardio I like, including running.) 3) Buy new running shoes by the end of the challenge! (Which will give me 2 weeks to break in the shoes before the race). I'm totally going to keep up with the strength n stuff, which I have been....which is why I am still posting in Rangers. I'll assign points n stuff later. K Bye
  5. Update: I am pretty much rocking this challenge! I am eating more fruits n veggies than I know what to do with! The only time I faltered was this morning - forgot to eat a piece of fruit with breaky... and one weekend near the beginning of the challenge where I travelled for a conference and ate out a bunch. AND.... I am back to doing 95# deadlifts, after a short hiatus from them... AND.... Last week I squatted with the bar for the first time!! Yahoo!! I am now doing 50# (5# put on the bar). I'll be going up more too. AND.... Yesterday I used the ab roller thing. I could actuall
  6. Congrats!!! Sent with a flurry of little thumbs and dog hair.
  7. Day 3 (Wednesday, Jan 7): 1. Fruit: Forgot that I wasn't eating breakfast on Wednesdays and went ahead and made myself a lovely fruit salad. Had a cup of it and yogurt, granola, and 3 sausages. 2. Veggies: Lunch was remainder of fruit salad with 2 cups of cabbage/broccoli slaw, and 3 more sausages. Supper: At least a cup of salad, and a whole crab with loads of garlic butter. OMNOMNOM 3. Stronglifts* n PlanksForTheWin* *I always do more than just SL. I usually incorporate calf raises, lat pulldowns, tricep work, etc. **this means I do 3 sets of front and side planks for 35 seconds, plus 3

  9. Day 2: Tues Jan 6 1. Fruit: Banana with my yogurt and granola 2. Veggies: 1.5 cups of assorted veggies with sausages for lunch, and 1.5 cups assorted veggies with chicken breast for supper (both meals with a delightful rice vinegar dressing) 3. Caught the last 15 minutes of the bootcamp (work ran late) and then went on the Jacob's ladder for 10 intervals of 45 seconds high intensity, 45 seconds low/rest (roughly). Also had a soak in the tub last night cuz my hammies were TIGHT! Noticed this morning that my jeans, though they are not loose in the front or on the sides, are loose in the
  10. Day 1: (Monday Jan 5) 1. Fruit: Banana with breakfast! 2. Veggies: 2 Cups (roughly) of broccoli with mah lunch, and 2 cups of cuke/pepper/onion salad with supper! 3. SL & PlanksForTheWin.... ugh.... went with my new workout buddy and she makes me actually WORK OUT.... so now my muscles are yelling at me today. Huzzah! It's great because she's a fitness instructor, so she's been helping me to tweak what I'm doing. Such as, do the exercises slower, instead of rushing them. Engage the muscles more, and rely less on momentum. Thus, the yelling muscles today.
  11. Main Quest: Fit into size 7 jeans by Nov 27, 2015 I'm pretty proud of myself that I have managed to develop a consistent exercise regime over these past few months! I've noticed changes in my body and people have commented on how great I am looking. I feel stronger, happier, and more confident (WAY more confident) about myself. There IS such a thing as an Amazonian Hobbit, I am sure of it! SO! Develop excellent exercise habits and build a bunch of muscle? Check! Drop body fat so that I can actually SEE those muscles? Ummm............ I'm still in size 12 jeans, though they are loose eno
