  1. making good progress on my Life goal today, now time for some soccer practice! :)

  2. Thanks for the encouragement everyone! <3 If anything, having such a horrible first day has only motivated me to do better for the rest of the challenge.
  3. I've also created a spreadsheet to track my progress https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tE2V1mI4sLwkCFcD5p_NfgZnndMMlIvsTglCC90YIGw/edit?usp=sharing
  4. Well, my challenge has gotten off to a rough... or should I say non-existent start. I had planned on going to the beach with friends in the morning, which quickly turned into hanging out at a friend's house eating Taco Bell, pizza, and ice cream. My only consolation is that I was swimming all day and we intensely played Just Dance for a while, so at least I was getting some exercise. Still, overall it was quite a failure.
  5. Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I will have a rest day on Sunday, from everything fitness related. Can't believe I forgot to build that in. I've decided to stick to running one mile a day, since that's what I've been doing already and I don't want to push it too much for my first challenge. Any suggestions for grading systems? Right now I'm just doing P/F.
  6. Main Quest: I've always struggled with fitness, especially in terms of running and endurance. I'm not very strong either. I'd like to change that and build some muscle while becoming more comfortable with running. I don't have specific main goal in mind besides just get more fit, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to them. Missions: 1. Complete the beginner body weight workout 3x a week. (/6) [MWF] 2. Run at least 1 mile every day. (/36) 3. Bike to/from soccer field (5 miles total) and practice soccer for one hour 3x a week. (/6)[TTHS] Sunday will be a rest day. Life Quest: 1. Write at least 1,000 words for my NaNoWriMo novel each day. (/42) 2. Go surfing at least once a week. (/6) Motivation: I'm starting college in a month and I want create some healthy habits so I can be active and involved Grading: Everything will be graded pass/fail. If I reach each goal at at least 80%, I will consider this challenge 'successful'.
  7. Thanks for all the responses guys! I'll definitely check out the Starting Strength workout
  8. I don't know much about rugby, so I'm not sure which position I'd go for. Considering my size and absolute lack of muscle, I don't how good I'd be at tackling/getting tackled. If I understand correctly, smaller players tend to be backs?
  9. Hi there! This is my first post, so I hope I'm doing this right. My name is Olivia and I'm 18 years old, headed off to college in exactly one month! I've never really done much sports/fitness-wise, but since discovering this website, I've recommitted myself to getting fit and building a consistent routine. My main goal is to join the women's club rugby team at my school. There's no prior experience necessary, but I'd like to at least be able to run and be stronger so that I'm ready for practice. Since starting a week ago, I've been running one mile a day and my best time is 10.46. I obviously have a long way to go before I'm in shape but I'm willing to work at it every day. I've also done some curl ups (2 sets of 40) and push ups (2 sets of 10) but have no clue how to combine everything in a workout plan that builds up the muscles I need. If anyone has recommendations for a workout routine I could do (I'm 5'9 and weigh 125 pounds) I would really appreciate the help! There's just so much info out there, I'm a bit overwhelmed but want to get started on something right away! Thank you
