  1. Sunday - all good - ate around 1700 calories. This morning it was SNOWING (no joke!), so I did 10 minutes of Pilates and yoga exercises. I admit, I haven't tracked my calories exactly today (because I bought a small takeaway thai meal) but I certainly haven't gorged myself, or eaten ANYTHING from of the free chocolate bars staring me down across the other side of the office.... Since the weather is still atrocious, I won't venture out to the circus class tonight, as it involves driving across the other side of town. I will pencil it in for next week. So far, so good....
  2. Sitrep from yesterday, 1st August: Walk to the beach? You betcha. Ate no more than 1700 calories. Sure did! Posture good - I'm working on it? Also started reading through my assessment tasks for my Cert IV, and started taking notes. Yay! This morning I did my walk to the beach, and I'm track with my eating so far...
  3. So I was a little late to the party this time round, but stuff it, today is my Day 1. So how am I tracking so far? Pilates class. Check! Was dreading getting out bed this morning, but I just did it anyway, and it was good. Also did a very gentle workout at the gym at lunchtime cos the wind was bitterly cold, and I didn't feel like going for my normal walk. Bonus points? Yeah, why not! Eating? On track. It's only 2:56pm in the afternoon, but I am feeling good today, and unlikely to fall off the wagon. Posture? Thinking about it riiiiiight now. So, yay for me! Hope everyone else
  4. Hi there Fellow Firefly Fan! I did indeed feel a bit ripped off at the lack of actual Firefly photos at first, but happily you came through with the goods later in your post! Hurrah! Best of luck with your challenge! Thanks for posting the Untrained Beginner Parkour Exercises link - I have long been interested in parkour, so I will certainly check that out. But for now, I'm going to check out the new circus school (YAY!) that just opened in my town - can't wait! Have a stellar 6 weeks! Sarah

  6. Hey there NotSoNerdyNerd, Just wanted to say I thought your goals were really good, and I love the idea of Mini Wins! I should totally implement that myself, I'm not good at acknowledging my achievements! Just a thought about plantar fasciatus - I suffer from this as well. I use a spiky rubber massage ball on it every morning and that has helped loads! The Netflix thing makes me laugh - my guy and I have a bad habit of binge-watching shows! Best of luck with your challenge! Sarah
  7. Hi Idealistinfire! Best of luck with your goals this challenge! I too was fit and strong not so long ago, but a sprained ankle, old shoulder injury and relapse of my anxiety disorder put paid to that! I am hoping to start circus school this challenge, but not sure if my shoulder/ankle are up to it, so I will go softly.... Pilates has really helped me to rehabilitate my shoulder and ankle, so hopefully I won't re-injure anything! Hope all goes well with your pole-dancing prep! Cheers, Sarah
  8. Hey Pavowski, Great goals! I had to laugh when I read your bit about cartwheels. I can relate - despite being a reasonably fit, flexible, agile person who used to do stuff like rock climbing, capoeria and what-not, I have always been completely useless when it comes to "basic" things like handstands and cartwheels. I just discovered that a new circus school has opened up in my town, and I am soooo excited! Hopefully I too will soon unlock the mysteries of handstands and cartwheels.... Best of luck this challenge! Sarah
  9. Hiya blkhole24601, Great goals, very specific and varied (and fun!) I especially liked this bit, made me giggle: "I need to get better at adulting" Best of luck with your challenge! Sarah
  10. Injuries, the bane of my not-so-young body! Hi all! This is challenge no. 3 for me, although I guess technically I didn't really finish off on number 2. But oh well, saying this is my 3rd challenge makes me feel better! After 7-8 months of eating all kinds of junk, spraining my ankle, re-injuring my shoulder, having a stressful time and just generally dropping the ball on my health, I finally got myself into the right headspace to stop overeating and get serious about my health and fitness again. My ankle and shoulder are still undergoing rehabilitation, so I can't be too ambitious thi
  11. B for calories today. Home sick with the flu.
  12. A on my eating yesterday, and 30 minutes on tge exercise bike and treadmill.
  13. Finally achieved an A on my eating today - hooray!
  14. Okay, B today. I stuffed up my calorie counting
  15. Got a FAIL for my calories yesterday - mostly due to having lunch at a restaurant with a friend - the meal I ordered was twice as big as expected.... Anyways, back on the horse today - I am going to do my best to achieve an A today!
