  1. Really agree with this Looks like a good days workout
  2. This weekend should go a lot better, due to less visiting with famliy and other occasions. Still going to be a fun weekend though PLP16 is underway for today, and I'm still up to date with the rest. I understand your feeling for the lack of excuse. If you did that many yesterday, surely just one more today is doable. Diet since tuesday is solid, and Karate attendance is once more solid for the week. Last night was conditioning drills together with form, so completing the last reps of my PLP afterwards was not exxactly fun, but strangely liberating to still do them with being tired.
  3. Your workouts are really looking good, and major props on doing the workout anyway even if you didn't feel like it
  4. Indeed you don't. Lack of light due to no power does make it more difficult to avoid getting punched in the face So, updates. Um, yeah Karate is all attented including tonights lesson. We did more fitness focused class, so completing PLP for today was NOT fun. But I'm still up to date with that as well with PLP13 being completed today. Woop. Food related, eh, not so good. Friday = 2 Penalty points, Sunday = 4, Monday = 2, back on track today. All those were pretty much during social gatherings, and it was a case of resist, resist, resist, cave in eventually. So it could have been a lot
  5. Thanks. This week is going very well, so at leqast things are off to a good start. Got in my second karate session for the week, even though there was a power outage. PLP9 done this morning, I think the volume is starting to make itself felt. Diet was good so far for the week, no slips. Still need to watch myself for today,then can relax on diet tomorrow with a cheat day. After that I'll be back at watching food on sunday
  6. Thanks. Diet goals are going well so far, seems that the body is finally realising that no, it won't get any sweet carb treats and is beginning to behave itself better. Finally. I knew it owuld happen, since I've been on this level of carbs before, but nice that it didn't take too long. PLP8 done for today. Was actually afraid that by the time I get here my hands would start getting really unhappy with the pull-ups, but that doesn't seem to be a problem yet. Hopefully it stays that way. Looking forward to class tonight, and not anticipating any diet issues for ttoday. for some reason if
  7. Agree completely with what people have said about choosing a dojo. I know that the feeling at the dojo I'm attending now changed drastically since I was there last 12 years ago due to a change in sensei. I like the new atmosphere better, but I know there were a lot of people who left after the change. Another thing that will take observing a few classes and possibly talking to the instructor would be to find out which part of the martial art they focus on, and deciding if that matches with what you want to focus on. Some instructers are more ofucsed on basic technique, others on sparring or
  8. Thanks for the thread recommendations, adding a few should be great inspiration to keep going. As monks we are lucky enough that cool stuff we do and its demonstration is built into the martial arts we practice, so not having cool links shouldn't be too much of a problem. At this point even people in our club calling me sensei or senpai feels really awkward, especially because some of them are currently in better form than me XD Really looking forward to the challenge and joining up with the rest of the monks more directly on the next one Getting going with karate has been a 'goal' for
  9. It looks like you're off to an excellent start. Looking forward to hearing more. Counting something like walking for exercise seemes fine to me, as long as it was long enough that you actually felt you did something. Sounds great. Having a visible reward attached to completing your challenge helps a lot (Although I required google to find out what Chacos are XD)
  10. Thanks a lot. So today was good, met all three goals so well on my way. Class tonight focused on learning kata, which is great cause they aren't very well set in my mind at the moment. Hoping that carb cravings during the day get a bit better, because those are really terrible. Going to try and get a bit of work in on my life goal now
  11. Subbing, because I'd really like to see how the kick improvement exercises work out. Its the kind of thing I'll need to focus on at some point. Looks like a great start for you
  12. Following here. Looks like an interesesting link from your "life" goal that I can use, and looking forward to see how you do with the fintess goals
  13. Thanks for all the encouragement. So flawless victory over food tempatation for yesterday, and PLP is on track with day 6 knocked out this morning. Actually surprised how quickly the pull-ups are improving even over the last few days. Tonights going to be the first karate lesson for the challenge, so stay tuned
  14. Great start ! Looks like you rocked the food and exercise goals for the first day. Did you manage to get to your prayer time as well? Getting that one in place should help the other two along as well
  15. So this morning is day 1, and it seems to be going well so far. Day 5 of PLP (where I should be today) is completed, so things are going well on that front. Food wise day has been off to a good start. Breakfast hasn't been an issue for months now, but managed to resists the rusks in the tea room while fetching coffee at work. Now to keep doing that for the next 6 weeks and beyond ...
