  1. Hey now.. so where did *you* go? Come back, come back!

  2. My husband is 6' and weighs 180. He wants to be 195. He looks awesome as he is now, so at your height, 180# of mostly muscle is going to look beastly.
  3. Aww, HELL! And I was going to take the weekend off. *stomps off toward the pullup bar, muttering about overachieving Monks*
  4. They make some pretty nice hand wraps now...I have a pair that looks like weight lifting gloves but with gel over the knuckle area...I did my first heavy bag workout barehanded. That was not a good idea, and I have scars now. You've been given some good advice here...if you get bored with these suggestions, there's always the NERDEE.
  5. You are an adventurer...you're not afraid of a silly number on a scale, and it does NOT define who you are!! You are an amazing, awesome woman who has decided to take control of her life, health and future. You're going to stick with this plan and watch yourself become a happy, healthy foxy lady who is an inspiration to others. Now, get out there and get it done, girl!!
  6. Must be a full moon or something...my bff just called to tell me that she's having a super-crappy Friday too, and mine has been fine so far, but this week (particularly yesterday) has been either sucky, disappointing, or both.
  7. You live under a rock, don't you? MWOD Just search whatever body part with which you are having issues.
  8. It's probably more that I'm still at lower weights. I'm only about 20# away from bodyweight though, so I'm sure my time is coming.
  9. Well, that's what school was supposed to do...fill the time with something that was all about me. I've decided that the best thing for me to do is make a long list of things I need to accomplish in the next six months (home improvement projects, de-cluttering, yard projects, books I want to read, etc.) and just systematically work my way through it. I think the six week challenges we do here will be huge for me, because I can actually focus significant time each day on my goals. I do work from home 20 hours a week though, so that fills some of my time. I'm also a crafter, so there's the option of blogging/opening an etsy shop too.
  10. Have you MWOD-ed those areas? I have to do serious mobility work on my hips (it makes me feel like an old lady to say I have major hip trouble...I'm 32!) or otherwise I can barely walk in the mornings...especially if I'm doing squats or running on a regular basis.
  11. This is awesome stuff here. I'm hoping to add a WOD every once in a while to my routine as well...truth is, I really don't have all the time I need for all the fitness fun I'd like to have!
  12. Good point, I forgot to mention the other methods.
  13. Paleo is sort of a default thing for me...I'm gluten intolerant, dairy makes me stuffy-in-the-head, and the cutting out of rice/potatoes/grains was just a natural progression for me. If I do Paleo, I don't crave things I can't have anyway. There are those who do IF/LG without being Paleo though, and they have good success as well.
  14. We were apparently separated at birth...except for the age difference. I am also the "go-to" for everyone to call when they need something: the PTO, my husband, my father-in-law, my mother, my grandmother, friends, etc. I actually had plans to go back to school this fall, and so I dropped a lot of my social obligations in preparation for that. Well, due to some financial circumstances, my husband has asked me to put off starting until January, and I actually had to stop myself from thinking, "Oh, I'll have time to do PTO now!" NO!! I've decided that this year (school-year, technically) is for me, and me alone. I'm going to do some things I've never had time to do, now that all my kids are in school, and before I say 'yes' to anyone, I'm going to ask myself if what I'm about to commit to actually lines up with my goals/dreams/desires/needs...for the first time in 32 years, and it's hard.
