  1. Your challenge is pretty inspiring... Love your work and good luck with the challenge and the surgery!
  2. Herself. I start out every week saying to myself that I'm going to be disciplined, and I haven't been doing it. I'm making progress, but not enough - I cheat too often for it all to work properly. Back story - I'm 30, 95kg, 162cm and have always been overweight, but over the past few years have really ballooned. I've made some new choices with my life since the start of this year, taking up yoga and quitting smoking, as well as losing 5KG in the last 3 months. So here's my three personal challenges. 1) Fitness - Work out 6 days out of every 7. Yoga is not counted as a workout, but I will a
  3. Thanks to everyone for your input. I went to the gym this morning, did my normal weights routine and felt confident enough to give some new exercises that I haven't tried previously a go. Yay! Also, muscle stiffness/pain has pretty much subsided... i think I need another hard session.
  4. On Friday I did a Boxing Circuit class at my gym, which pushed me far harder than I would normally push myself, and I was exhausted and proud to get through. However, many squats and my first ever burpees later, my abs and quads are still really quite sore, and I'm due for my next weights session on Monday morning. (It's Sunday night in Melbourne, Australia). I've spent the weekend doing gentle exercise - going on a long walk with my boyfriend on Saturday and doing a long yoga class this morning, in the hope that the soreness will subside. While it's lots better than it was, I'm a bit concer
  5. I've heard statements pro and con, and some of the science out there isn't clear at all on this issue. Me, I get up first thing in the morning before work. Its part of my waking ritual now, which means that by the time I have a shower and dress for work, I'm all ready to go. Do what is going to work best for you... and keep doing it.
  6. Hey there! Glad to see someone else with lots of work and sleeves rolled up to do it.
  7. Quitting smoking was the best decision I made in my life. I put on a whole lot of weight, but as a result I came to the realisation that if I didn't make some serious lifestyle changes, I would continue to be much fatter than I want to be. Even if you gain some weight, this is only going to be temporary. Nicotine is an appetite suppressant and also artificially increases your metabolism, so its possible to not change your diet at all when you quit and still gain weight. Keep in mind that you need to be 40kg over your healthy weight to have the same kind of risk as being a smoker for heart
  8. Hi,

    What is Fitocracy? I saw you mention it in one of the threads.


  9. Welcome on board! I also have to lose weight and get fit or face the health implications - and so it's up to me to make it happen. They are fantastic goals - just make sure you don't push yourself too hard too early.
  10. Hey there - welcome to the gang. I'm amazed at the support I've been getting from the boards. I've also found Fitocracy a fantastic motivator - PM me if you want an invite. I found this post really helpful for setting fitness/life goals - you should check it out. http://nerdfitness.com/community/showthread.php?1406-Goal-Setting-A-Quick-How-To
  11. Thanks for your kind words. I might have a look at the running guild - I haven't checked it out yet.
  12. Hi all - I'm MisseLaneius, and I'm a druid with a mission - to lose the weight that is stopping me from being the best yoga practitioner I can be. I'm currently 96kg (212 pounds for you US types) and yoga has changed my life. I've always been a big girl, although this is the biggest I've ever been. Physical fitness hasn't ever really grabbed me - I was always too uncoordinated and too slow to be much good at sports at school, and whatever was between the covers of a book was far more interesting. As a result I became a geek (win!) and also started hating my body and didn't really see the poi
  13. Wow. You've achieved so much already - and aren't resting on your laurels. You are one hell of an inspiration.
