  1. Welp! This whole thing ended up being a bust. The only thing that has been consistent is me doing my best with water (not always 50 oz) and the dates with my husband. At this point I am trying to move my body every day. Push ups throughout the day, walking, stuff like that. I'll solidify more in the next challenge
  2. Thanks! That is definately one of the NF core fundamentals that stuck with me in my journeys. Never twice in a row. This I fell short of that, but I am definately motivated to keep at it!
  3. This week I am going to choose the Speed Feat! I am working on a timed running event and I am SO bad at it!! I could use a little help. I have a short distance timed run and I currently can barely jog for 15 seconds. For this feat should I see how long it takes me to go the distance with maximum effort, or should I see how far I go in my alloted time at maximum effort? TIA for any help
  4. I forgot to post this last week! I was going to take my dog to the mall and walk with her (which didn't happen) for my walking feat. But I planned (and successfully hosted) a board game night at my house with friends, something we've been putting off for a bit. So I completed my social feat.
  5. Week 1 Recap: This week was rough, emotionally more than anything. It is reminding me that I need to focus on me, because if I don't I will actually murder people. Exercise: I infact was at the gym 3 times and moved. I'm not the happiest with the content of my workout, but I'm having fun and getting back into the habbit. Water: I have officially used both hall passes :-/ Sleep: I have officially used both hall passes and then some. I am going to continue this habbit though! Life: Chase and I cut out a few hours on Friday after work and had a date. It wasn't perf
  6. Day 1 was interesting.... I went to the gym on Saturday and REALLY kicked my butt. So when I went to the gym yesterday I literally just walked on a treadmill for 20 minutes because that is all my legs would let me do . But it counts! And I have a gym date with a friend for tomorrow. I realized that I am REALLY far away from 100 oz of water per day so I dropped it to 50. That is still a concious effort, but an attainable one. I passed out around 8:30 PM which is a huge check in the sleep category. I do not have a date night on the books for
  7. I thought I posted this already..... but apparently not! So here we go! In the last few years I have accomplished a lot of life goals, but sort of let myself get overwhelmed. In that overwhelm I let a lot of habbits that make me happy fall by the wayside. So I'm starting back at the begining, with the community that helped me turn my life around, and the habbits that made me feel amazing. I am going to do an exercise, diet, sleep and life goal for this challenge. Exercise: Go to the gym and move 3x per week. Diet: Drink 100 oz 50 oz of water daily, trac
  8. Coming back after many moons away. Excited to get back to focusing on myself a bit. My Relax Feat: Take my dog for a walk (poor girl hasnt had any muma love in awhile).
  9. Huge appologies about those following me on this thread. I sort of fell off the face of the world!!! HAHAHAHAHA
  10. Hi! I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the nutrition section as it bridges both. Let me know and I'll move it, if the nutrition section is best. I am getting into a new lifting routine which places my session RIGHT before dinner. As with everything, the internet is really split on the whole post workout routine thing. I know that I need to have something protein and fast acting carb dense, perferably within 30 minutes of my session ending. What I'm concerned with is WHAT I should include in my meal. Which is where I'm leaning on my lovely nerd herd.
  11. Question about finishers I'm pretty new to programming for myself and I recently became obsessed with finishers. I really like the idea of putting it all out there and pushing my limits knowing there isn't anything else I have to do in my workout. I currently do whole body workouts every time I'm in the gym. However, I pick a major lift each session (BP, DL, or squat) and lift heavy on that. I also tailor my accessory work to that lift on that day. So I have leg-ish days and arm-ish days etc. Now for the question. When I'm selecting a finisher shoul
  12. Dear Princess Celestia, It has been so long! I was off fighting Academia, and she proved to be a much more formidable opponent than I thought. But for all intensive purposes I have stood up to the vicious Academia and I have come out triumphant! Now it's time to focus on me again. A lot has happened since I wrote last. I have walked away from my fitness journey almost completely. There are habits that I had worked on previously that have stuck. For instance, when I cook at home it's usually clean "paleo-ish". When I workout, I use good form, warm up
  13. Weekend recap, some successes some failures. This happened...... I made a bad decision for my cheat day this weekend. When I built my goals I specifically said EITHER weekend day instead of just Saturday because this weekend my Saturday was pretty busy, so I was going to have Sunday be my cheat day. Welp, Saturday rolled around and I was so excited that I forgot I intended Sunday to be my cheat day. So yesterday (Sunday) I was stuck at home doing homework all day (which was the point of my cheat day) and no matter how much "paleoish" food I ate I simply
  14. Br0din, I have a good idea of what I should and shouldn't do and I do push myself (maybe less than I'm capable of, but I still push). I just don't feel comfortable in my overall fitness right now to do burnout stuff on my LB. And I appreciate your input!! Don't think I'm bothered by you questioning me, I appreciate it
  15. Br0din, there's a lot of really awesome info in what you gave me, and I will definately look into some stuff to strengthen my pushups. My thing with the lower back isn't a muscle thing. I have a spinal defect that physiologically gives me a weak lower back. Because of that I have to be really careful when I engage my LB, so I don't want to do burnout exercises for that muscle group. I train it in my actual regimen, but the idea of doing stuff to failure in that region is really terrifying! hahaha. The plank thing is interesting, I didn't think of doing isometric movements for a burnout.
