  1. My goals for this challenge are to run faster and also to lose 10 lbs ( hopefully one will help with the other). I'd like to get my base pace back up to a 6.0 mph. I also want to figure out how to transition to a new job by mid next year. Quest: lose 10 lbs Cut out carbs and eat more protein (count calories) Quest: run faster Go to HIIT class every other day Increase base pace by at least 0.1 every 2 weeks Quest: apply for jobs spend at least one full day per week to put in applications Today's running speeds: Base: 4.5, Push: 5.5, AO: 6.5
  2. Time to get back into logging! I have been going to HIIT classes pretty consistently for the past month, but I need to start holding myself more accountable for nutrition and keeping track of my fitness goals. And also, I want to run fast! I always struggle with consistency when it comes to running, so I'll planning to keep track here. First goal, I'd like to get my base pace back up to a 6.0. Second goal, I'd like to drop 10 lbs. by the end of the year. Today's running speeds: Base: 4.5, Push: 5.0, AO: 5.5
  3. Hi everyone, I've decided to join the rangers for this quest, since I'd like to add some more cardio into my routine. I'm planning a trip with some friends in a few months, and I'd really like to be in tiptop shape before then. So I really need to get back to strength training and cardio and eating healthy on a regular basis. Those are my main goals. I'd also like to spend more time reading book and get back to learning a language on the side. So my goals for this challenge are: 1) Do strength training 3-4 times per week (+10 strength) 2) Do 30-45 minutes of cardio every day (+
  4. There's only a few days left, so I've been brainstorming about what I can do for the next challenge; I'd really like to continue the workout program I am following, since I have been seeing some great results, and I'm just a little more than a month from finishing it! The only drawback is that the workouts are pretty time consuming, but I guess I can deal with that for another month, and then consider how to make it more sustainable in the long term. I also definitely need to get out more and meet some new people; everything has been crazy lately so I've used that too much as an excuse to not
  5. I know! It's amazing what we are able to do when we work for it! I think sometimes it's easy to use fear of injury or overuse to hold myself back, but then when I actually push myself, it's amazing to see what I can do and how quickly my body will adapt.
  6. Thanks! The guy at my gym deadlifting over 400 lbs had to start somewhere, at least that's what I keep telling myself!
  7. Haven't been updating for a few days. Monday was a rest day, and I got in some good workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday. I should have eaten more today, but I probably ate extra on Tuesday, so I guess it woks out! I still need to work on getting more protein into my diet. I really do feel like I'm getting stronger, which is great. I could barely do one legged squats with 20 lbs a few weeks ago, and today they were pretty easy with 30 lbs. My nemesis, barbell lunges, were at least doable, if not enjoyable! My updated totals so far: strength: 140 stamina: 80 life: 181 (
  8. Haha, bad.... I haven't gotten to it at all since I have been so busy lately! I might have to make it the focus of the next challenge!
  9. Yay! I got to the gym tonight after a long day of hanging out with friends. Still ate reasonably healthy too. My updated totals so far: strength: 120 stamina: 70 life: 151 (-20) wisdom: 6 fun: 60 Mini-quest: Zap procrastination: 10
  10. It's been a rough week; I haven't gotten to the gym as much as I would have liked, and probably snacked a bit too much this week. Still, I'm down two pounds, which is good! Okay, well next week will be better! My updated totals so far: strength: 110 stamina: 60 life: 141 (-20) wisdom: 6 fun: 40 Mini-quest: Zap procrastination: 10
  11. Good luck with your challenge! I'm trying to learn Italian too!
  12. Post-gym totals: My updated totals so far: strength: 100 stamina: 60 life: 131 (-20) wisdom: 6 fun: 40 Mini-quest: Zap procrastination: 0 I hate the elliptical, but it's nice that the gym has such great wifi I can actually zone out and watch Netflix! I really need to get outside and bike instead, since I enjoy that a lot more....
  13. Okay, I got a bit derailed for the last two days, because I have been so busy with some personal affairs I had to take care of, so I didn't get to the gym at all, boo. I think my body needed a break though, so I'm not sure it was a bad thing. I still ate healthy, even though I didn't count calories. Anyway, I'm headed to the gym right now! And I'm back to counting calories tomorrow! My updated totals so far: strength: 90 stamina: 50 life: 131 (-20) wisdom: 6 fun: 40 Mini-quest: Zap procrastination: 0
