  1. Thx, I'll give it a try. Though focusing more on core and cardio shouldn't be a bad idea either when the Mountain is doing it^^
  2. Oh man, i feel your pain on that one...
  3. Time for a little update again... I reached a point at lifting where my core isn't stable enough to support me at going up in weights. I could possibly squat more, but at about 50kg my back starts to arch. Need to do more core-stuff to improve, feels a bit like cardio^^ Soda streak didn't really start again, nutrition overall is improving but many days are still shitty. Meditating...well, nothing going on here. I just forgot.
  4. Speaking of PR´s: 50kg Bench with ease, OHP 20kg, Deadlifts 60kg. Not my PR´s of all time, but the best I´ve been lifting since this march
  5. THIS! Talking in lifting speech: PR is about 4 weeks, this have been 2 weeks with good technique and one fail rep. No need to deload, just try again and lift better next time
  6. Did i remember something wrong or weren't Pendlays the ones standing up more straight and BOR leaning over and touching floor with every rep?! I'm confused...
  7. Read something different first. Still made sense Congrats for hulksmashing your Shirt!
  8. Here for food porn and reasons aka writing bullshit instead of following, cauz stupid Internet makes me unfollow
  9. Much Happening in reallife made me skip updating here, sorry for it^^ Challenge is going ok so far, only two important things: I Need to do more crunches etc as accessorys because Body tightness is an issue at squats etc. And I had one weak day but I'm ok with it - after only 3 hours of bad sleep and much stuff to do at work I drank one can of Monster energy. Streak over but one weak moment doesn't change my will to stop it.
  10. This is or better was totally me! Try to drink about 3 liter (0,8 US gallons says google) of water or at least 2, I´m feeling great since doing it!!!
  11. The need to stand up to early, feeling not awake enough to start into or make it through the day (saw a video some days ago where was said that drinking enough water makes your whole body, mind and so on less tired...needing energy drinks for this is like needing a cigarette to calm down: a bullshit habit), the want to stay up longer for gaming, a stress reaction when feeling down or stressed...I could name some more, but that should be it. Focus on water and sleep helps a lot!
  12. Tracking and nutrition still doing good, still discovering a ton of habits when I usually drink Energy Drinks - frightning how much I craved for it in every situation that comes close to being stressfull. (To get it right I´m not really craving these days, but remember times when I have been when doing my old habits again.) Sleep was ok in numbers but shit in Quality so my lifting wasn´t the best at all this morning. Bench was awesome but the rest was meh...I even stopped my squats after warming up because I couldn´t keep my back straight and hold the tension of my body.
  13. Doesn´t matter. You wear a cape, you lift extraheavy shit. You must be Superman!
  14. Are you wearing a superman cape during your workout?! O.O
  15. Week 1 Update: Quest 1) Lift 3 times a week and don´t forget the accessorys Liftet 2/3 so far and will go this evening for Nr 3. It's still freaking hot here, so there is not much Stamina left after the main lifts. It will cool down by far next week, so I'll give accessorys a try then. Quest 2) Eat selfcooked meals and drink at least 2 liter water, avoid fast food and such. Ah and stop drinking soda! + added: start tracking again Still no soda and I discover more and more Habits that led me to buying energy drinks in the past. It is really hard to recognize them and then do something different, mostly I get me something with way less calories to drink that's still sweet or I buy more lean meat for cooking instead. Water is absolutely no problem right now, because hell would be a cooldown from germany these days. Tracking is on since friday, but there's still room for improvement. Quest 3) Get at least 8 hours of sleep, before early shift at least 6 hours Sleep was extraordinary in regards of this hell summer week, early shifts and much stuff to do. One day didn't hit the mark, but the other 6 days have been great in quality and numbers. Quest 4) Meditate daily for 15mins Yeah...there's been something, now that I see it written down as a goal. I'm doing many things right now, that are good for me and calm me down, but it's not quite how I wanted it to be. I'll need to remind me somehow before going to sleep. So there's still much room for improvement but especially my sodafree time is really great and I'm quite solid back into lifting! Some weeks ago I would've used summer heat as a reason to not go lifting, just because.
  16. She's not only a real adorable person, she's a badass nerd too! Enjoyed her playing D'nD with Geek & Sundry so much! <3
  17. I bet you won't Here for new warriors and former energy drink addicts (former "best" were 1,5 Liter of Monster energy plus maybe a coke if I was still thirsty...reduced it by time and now I'm sober for nearly a week )
  18. I'm gettin' a bit jeally for all those NF-Campies....next year 4 sure! And you remind me that I need to start watching Supernatural again
  19. Welcome to the warriors! A co-worker of mine tested roller derby for a while but sadly her team members and coach in special were pretty bitchy. What's your battlename on your team top?
  20. Here for the simple things of life I love the punishment burpess! If I would do them, I would be a ranger in no time Can I deadlift instead?
  21. I´m gladly not craving for sugar when I usually drank Energydrinks and such, but now I´m mostly craving in the evening, way after my last big meal. Somehow I got used to eat at least a little bit right before going to bed - you could be starving to death while sleeping, you know - and right after eating something like a little piece of sausage or such...well, then I need something sweet after it. Maybe I could try to find something to add to my pre-sleep-meal to deal with it better (like joghurt with fruits instead of sausage and co), but for now I try to make it IIFYM until I´m doing fine with the main quests in Nutrition.
  22. Eat, sleep, lift, repeat is one of my favourite mantras these days! Here for gainz an´ glory! And gifs!
