  1. I've been off these forums for a while because I've been at the Royal Australian Navy recruit school for the last 3 months. We finally passed out (graduated) last Friday! We got to do a big parade in front of our family and friends. The icing on the cake was I took out the dux of the intake award. Over the time I've learnt to march, tie ropes, stop leaks, fight fires, survive at sea, shoot weapons, get tear gassed, and pushups (lots and lots of pushups). Without a doubt its the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but also the biggest sense of achievement, especially after coming from
  2. Coffee Rum Donuts Preferably all at the same time
  3. Ditching the self-loathing cycle after missing a couple of workouts or eating badly was what helped me level-up the most. Whenever I'd 'fall off the wagon' I used to tell myself, "Why bother getting back on, I've already failed so I'll just quit altogether and make a fresh start 'next week'". I'd second what others have said and try to just get back into it and not try to make up for lost time. Treat your time off as a good thing, allowing your body to rest and catchup with what you've been doing.
  4. After spending the last 8 years in crappy admin jobs, I've finally made the change I've always wanting and I'm joining the Navy in less than 2 weeks. If you're not sure if being a personal trainer is what you want to do, I'd say give it a go while not putting all your eggs in one basket. You'll soon figure out if you enjoy it enough to keep going. I know one personal trainer who is building his business, but still has a job doing nightfill at a supermarket to help pay the bills while he's still growing his business. My one piece of advice for dealing with any period of unemployment is to ke
  5. Hey cool! This is exactly what I'm doing and keeps me motivated too. I'm enlisting in 2 weeks.
  6. Phwoar! That's like deadlifting me and my evil clone
  7. My wife and I did the Warrior Dash a few months ago and really enjoyed it. We didn't really train much, so we took it easy and walked most of it and had a great time. The only thing I'd say to watch out for is on our race there was a part of the track that ran through a shallow, muddy creek where they had dug holes of varying depths to trip people up. Not sure if that would be in your race, but just something that might be there but not listed as an "obstacle" to watch out for if your concerned about your knees.
  8. It's currently a balmy 11 degrees C here with a forecast max of 18. Could have something to do with being on the other side of the equator from the rest of you.
  9. Things that will always get progressively "worse" as I get progressively older: Games, Music, Movies, and Those Damn Young People
  10. One of the things that drew me most to paleo was not having to count calories. Every once in awhile I'll track what I'm eating over 3-5 days and average it out in terms of calories and macronutrients to see how its generally going and if there any tweaking I should make.
  11. Whatever your problem, my advice is always going to be: Rub some bacon on it ( )
  12. ... you watch Big Bang Theory and laugh at every "Bazinga!" .. oh wait, NO IT DOESN'T!
  13. My hobby is driving slowly around schools in a white unmarked panel van and pointing a big camera out the window. Please support me
