    Deer startles awake! But where did the challenge go? Deer runs to catch herd! Did ok mostly: Sleep just under 2/3 goal Snoozy sun peeks up. 60k steps / week Woot! Still want more fitbit friends Onward glacier move! Pushups not so much. Shouldn't do with glaucoma Bird flies into hill. But wait! Saw eye doc: That's for different glaucoma! Go you fit lion! So guess what for next? More pushups and weights baby! Volcano puffs up
  3. Hi everyone, I've been lifting on and off for a couple of years now (since I found this great site!) I'm now trying to get back into it but I've hit an unexpected roadblock - medically apparently I'm not supposed to! I have had glaucoma since I was 14 (a by product of the surgery for my congenital cataracts). Essentailly glaucoma is too much pressure in the eye because the fluid in the eye doesn't drain properly. The primary way of controlling it is with eye drops and they've been working for me for about 25 years (I'm now 40). I came across an article the other day saying that liftin

    Doing well of late! Sleep on time just under goal. Light rain on flowers. 50k steps / week: Two weeks: 130k steps fast creek at sunrise! Problem with push ups: Found out I shouldn't do them! Unexpected bear! I have glaucoma: push ups (and weights) make it worse Sand dunes in wind storm. Looking for info, Need view from tall tree in wood Options not researched Forgot to mention: Life goal: brush teeth! So far: daily! Sunlight shining bright

    Bard is back baby! Albeit belatedly. Sunrise is not rushed. Bear hibernates: Lost job, new job, last year full! Calm river then flood. Clear sky, eagle soars! Keen to get in shape again. New Fitbit even! Goals for this challenge: Basics: sleep, move and workout Oak has solid roots! Bed by 10:30 Simple, but need to do it! Sun's night rest can't wait. Move: Use new fitbit! 50k steps min per week, sunlight doesn't stop.. Wolves hunt best in packs: Any Fitbit users here? Want friendly challenge? Workout for four weeks: Start with 10 pushups per day Don't fly yet lil bird! Here we g
  10. Gah! Inconsistent! I fall, again I get up, I can do this, soon First week was good but, next two weeks were a write off, I won't fail again! Counting from this week again Quickly writing this as I go to bed Still working on that particularly, and everything... Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk
  11. I'll try, I will, hoo hooo! To stick to my goals here with you! This first week is fun, One gym and two runs! But the study is messy, boo hoo! Bedtime, I have, not stuck, This up late trend I must now buck! Be in bed by ten, I will try again! But being good is as hard as.....titanium (you thought I was going to write something else there didn't you!) Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk
  12. No Bard Seems you can't upload photos from phone at the moment... Oh well, here's me - Got the well worn NF hat and even had to drag out the NF hoodie as it my phone advised it felt like 4c outside (and I'm a wuss
  13. Bard before the run! After the run Bard was a gibbering mess, lacking the coordination and fine motor skills to actually use the camera function of the phone... Bard is very unfit... Probably 4km (gps unfit too it seems) and had to slow to a walk three, maybe for times... This is a starting point. Sent from my GT-N7105 using Tapatalk
  14. I was worried about appearance; Same goals every time looked slack Then I realised, 'twas silly, No need to feel guilty, Just push on from where I am at! Bed by, well 11 last night, up this morning for a run though and some work on my office to start the work week and the challenge! Thanks for the sub Terinatum! Fantastic to have support!

  15. And so I return, As usual, I've been consistently inconsistent of late - although changing jobs (starting my own business!) has been largely to blame that's still no excuse and indeed working from home I need more than ever to get regular exercise in as otherwise I can go days and days at a time without ever leaving the house (my wife would say without ever leaving the computer, which I protest, but in truth probably isn't far off!). So without further ado: Main goal: Exercise 30 times between now and the end of June. That's 11 weeks away so it's not even three workouts a week, but wha
