  1. That's great! You'll find it gets easier and easier, even to a point where you can just 'keep running', it's a pretty amazing feeling. Keep us updated.
  2. Top job, best of luck with it all. Focus on the good days!
  3. No worries, thanks for that. I think it's really important not to push the idea of children on absolutely everyone. Purely because it isn't for everyone, yet a lot of people don't get that.
  4. I'm just here today to shamelessly plug my post on the Nerd Fitness blog like the hack I am. 'The Shit They Don't Tell You: 12 Things New Parents Need To Know' Feel free to have a read and let me know what you think, Rebels.
  5. First week down, still going strong. Did more than an hour of social media yesterday though. Time just goes too quickly sometimes. Lots of time with each of the kids over the weekend. Got in some good reading time with my middle child. Anybody else down with Grug?
  6. Spent some special one on one time with the middle child last night. Once he got in his pyjamas we went outside to look at the full moon and sing twinkle twinkle. Then we wrestled with each other for about 20 minutes. Then he was all worked up and wouldn't go to sleep.
  7. Tell me about it. I've used up 38 minutes of my hour already and it's only 8:50 am.
  8. That means something different here in Australia. Thanks though @Magistra Fay, regardless of whatever way you're rooting for me. The water intake is definitely much more of a challange than I expected, 1.5 litres is two of these during the work day: On the plus side, I'm doing much more walking to and from the toilet at work. Win, win.
  9. Well done on implementing a points system, looks like you've put a lot of work into this, great job and best of luck.
  10. Pretty great. Dave Wakeling and The English Beat were possibly the nicest bunch of people I've ever met. Chris Murray is also a great guy. I play guitar in a band called 'Son of Dad'. Check us out if you're keen:
  11. Nice, same. Huge Specials, Beat and Selecter fan. I've been lucky enough to play in the support band for those and a few others when they've toured oz. I also dig third wave and the traditional stuff.
  12. I think I cam across you in your challenge two years ago. Are you a ska fan? I'm guessing from the username.
  13. Off to a great start (we're a day ahead of you here in Australia). Had a good hour of special one on one time with my eldest daughter on Sunday. (She loved it, and we walked over 3km, I had to piggyback her back to the car, here's her catching her first Pokemon (Poliwag)) In addition to that I'm on track for my water at work today (it's just gone lunchtime and I've downed 750mL) plus I plan on hitting the (non-Pokemon) gym tonight. How are you all starting off?
  14. Nice goals. You're in the right place, best of luck to yourself too.
  15. Hi, I'm Troy McLure Dan Schmidt, you may remember me from writing such Nerd Fitness articles as 'A Nerd's Introduction to Mental Health', 'How to Build an Active, Outdoor Lifestyle With Your Kids' and 'How to fight the Tired Parent Syndrome'. But today I'm here to talk to you about my "first" 4 week challenge. (I actually started a challenge in 2014, but couldn't complete it because I had to leave my house due to bushfires I am weak). But I'm damn set on completing this one (it's winter time here in Australia, so the risk of fire is much less). We've just had our third
