  1. This is the place to ask Krav-related questions, right? I'll be traveling for work in a couple of weeks, which means I'll be missing basically a week's work of Krav Maga classes. The school shut down for a week around the 4th of July and I suffered when classes started again because I did nothing in that week. I don't want to make that mistake again. I plan to do some cardio and bodyweight stuff, but is there any way I can do Krav-specific training while away? Work is putting us up in a fancy place, but that doesn't guarantee the gym has much more than treadmills and weight machines
  2. I'm still here! I read this but kind of avoided computers during the long weekend (and when I wasn't at work during the week, oops!). Posting a halfway update soon. Thank you for checking in!
  3. Definitely. I'm still trying to figure it all out, plus they ran out of space where the rest of my team sits so I don't know how often/when people actually take breaks. And it's a kind of work where you get caught up in it and forget to do other things like take breaks or go home (which is a nice change in a way). You and me both have that on our list of things to work on.
  4. Unfortunately (for this situation), I go straight to Metro North/Grand Central and the stations near home are miles apart. I might never get home if I tried walking between those stations. And we all pretty much work through lunch here. It's not required, but it's kind of the nature of the work and the environment. I can take breaks, but I feel strange doing that being so new still. I'll find a way! Good ideas though!
  5. It *is* NYC. My problem is that I can see the train station from the second I leave the building. Maybe I'll just walk a few blocks and explore a couple of days a week instead of sprinting to the train. I'm already struggling to get up at 5:40...but I'm sure I could push myself to be up by 5:15. Even easier if I sleep in the workout clothes...hmmmm
  6. We're all dorks here! Well, there's got to be at least some overlap with nerds and dorks, right? I'll definitely have to check out that book since organization has always been a weak spot and I might have to work between home and 2 offices in the near future. Thank you for the podcast recommendations! I enjoy anything that makes me laugh and/or think, plus I love anything horror. I used to listen to creepypasta stories on youtube, but my dad decided to up our phone storage space but cap the data (no more unlimted) so podcasts make more sense. I found "The Trail
  7. Days 3 and 4 went well as far as water intake (somehow well over 2L both days...I'm worried I might be getting sick), but I'm slacking with yoga and walking. It's already dark or almost dark when I get home and now it's dark when I wake up. What are suggestions for finding the time for walking or yoga? I don't know whether to force myself awake earlier and do it or doing it when I get home in the evening. I'm also starving when I get home so the first thing I want to do is eat...Maybe I need to get in earlier or hang around NYC later and walk around a bit after work (it's so tem
  8. I see a lot of similarities to mine. Can't wait to see your progress and maybe pick up some more ideas! I bought Nerd Fitness Yoga months ago and love it. Part of my reasoning was that if I spent the money, I'd be more likely to use it. I've used free exercise videos in the past and just couldn't stick with them. Though, I also may just not have found the right ones for me. There was a hiccup of non-use for a month or so, but I love it. I'm still using the lowest level sessions, but at this point, I only need audio to follow along.
  9. Day 2 summary: Hit my water goal, but the train ride home was not fun. I hope my body gets used to the increased intake. No yoga, but I may do some tonight. 10 minutes of walking with coworkers in the middle of the day to escape the office, so only 50 left! Closet purge is at a standstill until the weekend probably.
  10. I'll have to look into that book too. Thanks! I downloaded the Waterlogged app because I was making notes on my phone, but I figured I'd let something else do the math for me. And having the visual of a chart is definitely helpful to motivate me. I need to space it out better and not panic to drink it all at once because I was dying on the train home yesterday needing a bathroom. I figure half a bottle (~8oz) on the commute in which I leave in the car, half a bottle (~8oz) in the morning, 1 can of seltzer (12oz) around noon/with lunch, 1 can of seltzer (12oz) the rest of the afternoon,
  11. Plenty of others have commented on this, but I'm adding my 2 cents too, especially since I've done many variations of the BBWW. I had a successful first challenge and then failed at the next few attempts because I put too much on my plate, and one of those was that I was trying for 3 full BBWWs per week. Last challenge I successfully completed (though my thread for it doesn't reflect that because I didn't check in at the end) and I only had one BBWW per week, which was great for me at that point. This challenge I only included it as a potential bonus because of where my life is right now.
  12. You are killing this challenge already! Keep it up I love swimming but I don't have a pool I can use consistently, so I've never been able to incorporate that. I'll just live vicariously through you for that.
  13. I think drinking enough water will be the hardest part for me. I got over 2L yesterday (and chose water over soda at the county fair yesterday to make sure I got enough), but I’ve had about ¼ of what I need for today…on the one hand it’s already noon and I’m not that far along, on the other hand, it’s only noon and I’m ready for my 3rd bathroom break. My body hates learning to drink more water. On the upside, I did the 40 min yin stretching yoga session yesterday, so 1/3 done with that. Walking will be something else that will be tough. I might need to break that up into a f
  14. Thank you! Glad to be back I started reading through the article and it's definitely already super-helpful. Thank you! I'm not jealous of my commute either, haha. But, I do enjoy being on the train because I'm a strange duck. And it's forcing me out of my comfort zone some because I have to be assertive and tell people to move so I can sit. I've recently started actually downloading podcasts, which makes it that much more bearable. I've got a lot to listen to, but podcast recommendations definitely welcome too!
  15. Quite literally, I have a new job working in investigative due diligence for an accounting firm in NYC. I am over the moon happy about it! I'm finally doing something I enjoy and working in a wonderful environment with and for people I like. Unfortunately, I still have a long day, especially with my commute from the middle of CT to NYC - over 2 hours each way. I knew what I was getting myself into and after I'm more experienced, I'll be able to work from home and from the office that's only an hour from me. But, for now, I'm awake at 5:30 and home between 7:30 and 8, without including exe
