  1. I swear I know how to spell. Anytime I post from the tablet I seem to mess something up. Let's blame the tablet. April 29 Workout 5 minute warmup walk at 6 km/hr 5 minutes of stretching ISO-Lateral Wide Chest: 3 sets, 10 reps, 60 lbs ISO-Lateral Wide Chest: 2 sets, 5 reps, 80 lbs Lat Pull Down: 1 set, 2 reps, 80 lbs Front Barbell Raise & Extend: 3 sets, 10 reps, 16 lbs (No idea what these are actually called. I think an old trainer called them ski something or other) Sitting Chest Press with Dumbells: 3 sets, 10 reps, 16 lbs Flat Dumbbell Fly: 3 sets, 5 reps, 16 lbs Tricep Push Up:
  2. Nope! It was for the alleged health benefits and to try to teach myself that there's more to eat in the world than bread and cheese. That and I'm not the kind of person who craves meat. I usually like the taste once I'm eating it, but 9 times out of 10 I would rather have pasta or bread. Your poor husband, elsfaire! I feel for him. That whole cooking from scratch a whole bunch thing doesn't really work for the busy student life, unfortunately. My food allergies are just genetic. My dad's list is even longer than mine. I've had food allergies all of my life and a lot of them have change
  3. Almost a year ago I did a 30-day vegan stint, which was wonderful. Unfortunately, about half way through, I learned that my list of food allergies had basically quadrupled. To top it off, the new allergies were almost all fruits and vegetables. I fondly remember my doctor saying, "Well, if it's not a moral thing, you may want to reconsider being vegan because I don't know what in the world you're going to eat." I finished out my 30 days of being vegan, but since then I've struggled with eating and staying healthy. It's hard to not just go for bread and cheese because it's one of few things tha
  4. Protein shake! One scoop, add water, mix 'er up. Along the same lines as Kvothe Gainskiller, it's quick and easy. I'm also noticing a tendency to go for a bit of tortilla chips and guac. I think it's half my body wanting fat and carbs and half missing home. I'll have to try the sweet potato idea, I've read that a number of times now, sounds like a hit!
  5. Today's workout: 5 minute warmup walk at 6 km/hr 10 minutes of stretching Squats: 3 sets, 5 reps, 10kg Deadlift: 3 sets, 5 reps, 20kg Leg Extension: 3 sets, 10 reps, 20kg Leg Curls: 3 sets, 5 reps, 10kg Standing Calf Raises: 3 sets, 30 reps Back Extension: 3 sets, 5 reps, 15kg Hanging Leg Raises: 3 sets, 10 reps Overhead Squats: 3 sets, 10 reps 20 minute jog at 8km/hr 10 minute walk at 6km/hr 5 minutes of stretching All in all, today felt pretty wimpy. I think I could have lifted more or at least done more sets. My quads are still sore to the touch from about three days ago. I suspect I'm
  6. Beer and mixed drinks only at work? Where in the world do you work?! Are they hiring?!
  7. High five to the super busy student life! I'm usually in the same boat as you. Since you don't like running or going to the gym, I would recommend something like P90x or insanity. I really liked insanity because it was relatively short, but an awesome workout. There's a whole boatload of at home workouts to choose from and I think it's easier to have someone tell you what to do and when to do it when you're working out at home since you don't have the same pressure or motivation you would find in a gym. Good luck!
  8. I am thrilled to have stumbled on this forum, it's exactly what I need. I know it's supposed to mainly include workouts and food logs, but I suspect it will become a catalog of triumphs and obstacles. I've never been big on journals on diaries. I'm haunted by the paranoia that others will read my private thoughts or scrutinize my public ones. Even worse, I fear the gut wrenching embarrassment I may feel when my future self reads my past self's thoughts. I am also fairly confident that no one really cares what fitness/healthy lifestyle goals I achieve or which struggles I endure along the way.
