  1. The past two weeks have been alright. Training has been great- but my diet has been pretty mediocre. :/ New muscles are sore pretty much every day. I think that in itself is an accomplishment. It means I'm doing something right. I'm really really close to doing a full pushup. I haven't stayed great with Paleo. It was my best friend's 21st birthday last weekend, and for the first time ever I went out bar hopping. And what I think people call 'clubbing'? I think I did some of that. All I know is it was loud and crowded and there were so many flashing lights and I couldn't hear anything and
  2. So this weekend was off to a fantastic start. This is normally around the time of year that I get sick. This time last year I caught strep and then was diagnosed with asthma. Good times were had by all. This past week I've been feeling just kind of... off. A little dizzy, kind of nauseous. I was pretty sick in the middle of last week, but I thought it had went away. Wellllll on Saturday night I was just like doing stuff around my house and I got really dizzy and got these crazy heart palpitation and my chest was all tight and I had a hard time catching my breath. So what do I do? Check We
  3. Sorry, didn't mean to double post. I offer a Dobby cat as form of apology.
  4. Oh my gosh don't get me started on quest bars. I freaking love quest bars. Also, net carbs are simply the amount total carbs minus the fiber. Fiber is a form of carbohydrate that isn't broken down by the body, so it isn't utilized as glucose (because it isn't digested), and therefore doesn't impact your blood sugar. So when you quest bar has 25g of carbs and 22g of fiber, it only leaves 3 grams of digestible carbs (sugar/starches). Makes sense? (Sorry I'm a total nerd about this kind of stuff )
  5. Oh my gosh this is a cool challenge. ' This is what I love about this community. Someone says 'I'm going to take some inspiration from Harry Potter and become a lifting beast.' and nobody bats an eye. You're very brave to post progress photos. Good luck to you on your challenge. I'll be following you!
  6. Yeaahhhh pushups! Also, being an adult, I find is incredibly overrated. Great job sticking to you challenges. That's something that I struggle with too. Good luck to you!
  7. Happy birthday! Sounds like your 30s are going to kick ass. (It should be worth noting that a woman reaches her physical prime as far as strength goes at around 31 on average. ) Great goals! I hope the pull-up thing goes well for you. It's one of those way-off one-of-these-days goals for me. Good luck!
  8. Never has this graphic been more true to me. I’ve been all lost and turned around somewhere in that clusterfuck of squiggles. I’m sure the vast majority of people here, and in the world in general can relate to the frustrations of plateaus and setbacks. I’ve let them get me down for far too long, and have fallen back into the old habits of trying to crash diet to get back to my lowest weight so I can go from there. The results have been exactly as you would expect. I’ve gained 14 pounds in 4 months from my lowest weight. However frustrating it is, it’s a good reminder not to let mys
  9. Sounds good! My left shoulder needs some work but I promise to do what I can. Feel free to do however many you want, and I can catch up it just might take me a little longer.
  10. Sweet, elinox! Let's rock this!
  11. I need to practice my roll anyway. Who wants to punch with me?
  12. I know I haven't updated this a whole lot, but this challenge is going great for me. I completed my first spartan sprint yesterday. IT WAS SO INTENSE. I did things that I didn't think I could at my current fitness level. There were some obstacles that I couldn't do (the rope climb, the slippery wall, all that upper-body stuff). But I'm proud that I attempted every single obstacle, even the ones that I knew I couldn't do. I picked up a travel companion on the trail, and we completed it as a team. I didn't know how much of a team sport a Spartan race is. There are a lot of obstacles I N
  13. It's been a great week everyone! I started back to school for the first time in a year. I'm working on my Associates in Applied Science with a concentration in Exercise Science. My last major was Elementary Education. I dropped out in my third year because I knew it wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. But I've found something that I'm really passionate about. I don't know exactly what I want to do in the field yet, but there's so many possibilities and it's a great start. I know that I want to work in the Health and Wellness field. My classes are amazing. I had my fir
  14. Thanks fultonator. And I don't know to be honest, but I will try. I'd like something passable at least. Week one went well. Everything except for Whole30. I ate on protocol from Tuesday until this morning, and then today happened. Let me tell you about my adventure today. Today I ran the PF Chang's Rock & Roll half marathon! It certainly was an adventure. Not everything went as planned. The biggest problem being: I forgot my inhaler. I haven't needed it since camp. It didn't even cross my mind to bring it. The first 6 miles went great! But, around mile 6.5
  15. Awwwe yeaaahh. I love this! Here's a tip for everyone: doing your own sound effects for this one makes it like a hundred times cooler. Adding 100 to the team goal for tonight!
