  1. Hey everyone! I'm an old-school NFer--been around about 7 years at this point!--but it's been a long time since I've been active on the forum. I'm ready to jump back in, and thought the 4-week challenge would be the best way to throw myself back into the community and get to know all (okay, probably only some) of the new faces. My theme for this challenge is crossroads. In terms of both fitness and diet, I've been stuck at a decision point the last month or two, and haven't made any definitive choices as to where to go from here. My challenge goals are a bit boring because of that,
  2. Hey gang, sorry I've been quiet this last week! My numbers are (sadly) all in, as well. Another SvS challenge would be great, although I'll second the others on further refining the calculations and taking out the shirt bet.
  3. Only THREE days left! Hope everyone has a great weekend and end to the challenge. It's been so much fun following everyone's progress, and the inspiration hasn't hurt, either.
  4. The weather has been so great this week that I wanted to get outside this morning, so I went for a run. Distance: 5k Time: 28:41 Pace: 9:09/mi. Overall, this felt pretty great. My stomach was very crampy for the second half, but I managed to push through--and without puking! Small victories.
  5. Thanks for sharing! Interesting read. I'm not feeling burned out on Stronglifts per se, but on the other hand, this is my 3rd or 4th reboot of doing the program, so clearly something about it isn't working for me. I may have to join you in trying this one out for next challenge!
  6. Quick updates from yesterday and today. Yesterday was pretty relaxed, not much in the way of exercise. With the exception of walking about an hour (combining there and back) to have drinks with a fellow NFer! The two beers I had more than cancelled out the walk, but still, it was fun. Today, I did a little plank session after work: 1 x 90 sec. 4 x 60 sec. And then a nice walk back and forth from dinner (around 45 min. total). Going to get some more grip strength training in before bed, too. My back has been feeling pretty good this week, so I am seriously thinking about lifting t
  7. Figured they'd be useful for when I get back to the bar and do proper BB rows. My kitchen counter isn't the best height, but it works well enough. Improvising! And ha! Well, only 5 more hours or so to go!
  8. Nicely done! The challenge has flown by, but time to keep it up!
  9. Thanks MLP! I managed to survive but it was looking dicey for awhile. Wovercast, I do have the capt. of crush one. I'm using the trainer, as you guessed, but I apparently have no grip strength so that's the only one I'm using right now. It'd be nice to graduate eventually! Finished up the night with 5x10 pushups and 5x5 inverted rows. Back has been relatively quiet for the last couple of days so here's hoping I'm on the mend there.
  10. Same thing with my guy. I know he does some CF, although hopefully not the same one as your spousal unit. Yikes. I work today, so took yesterday as a lazy day off. Mimosas and lots of movies on Netflix were had. Also, I slow cooked a pork shoulder for dinner, but it took FOREVER so we will be having pulled pork for dinner tonight instead. Yum. One bit of goal progress yesterday: ordered a couple of pairs of new jeans that should arrive later this week. I'm pretty much down to a single pair that I wear all the time now, so it needs reinforcements. Oh, and I finally got back to using m
  11. Ooooh excellent! Straight As...goody two shoes! (Okay, I'm just bitter because I'm blatantly failing this challenge. )
  12. Not a bad idea. I went to a guy for acupuncture for a bit and he also does massage therapy, so that may be my next step if this doesn't clear up in a little bit. I've been doing some yoga and it feels good, but maybe the back bends, etc. are just exacerbating things.
