  1. Well time to write the update for this week lol. I will have an official weigh on, as always, on Monday but I did a bit of an unofficial weigh in this morning and it seems that my weight has gone down again woot woot! That's definitely a good thing as once again I did not get in any work outs for this week and TBH ate not that strictly lmao. Onto working out. I was speaking with a friend of mine and we were talking about a phenomenon that seems to happen to some people when exposed to greater training volumes. So for example, at one point I was going to a Crossfit
  2. Just caught up on the thread. I don't know what to really write here as I, usually, have seen you in a much different light. Just know that despite our back and forths and our badgering of each other... I consider you a friend, one of few. If you ever need anything, even if it's just an ear, let me know.
  3. First time in a Grumble thread, I think, and I like what I see! On the Therapist note it is never easy to pull back the veil to someone that you barely know. I have done it only once and it was a nerve racking experience at the start, but by the end it was well worth it. Keep up the good work Grumble!
  4. Late to the party a lil bit... but heck of a trip there Red! See you're getting back at it, and that's awesome. Good triples! I know it's in the past, but I wasn't here lol, what happened to your shoulder back in the day?
  5. Wow so much to get caught up to in this thread. Good stuff I may add. I share some of the same anxiety problems you do but they manifest a little differently. Mainly as soon as something stressful happens in my life I tend to drop things quickly, and recently that has been working out. I need to stop doing that and realize that not every stress event that happens to me means the world is coming to an end. Keep up the good fight Spezzy! Also awesome deficit deads there! Way to go girlie! I used to work hand in hand with a coach doing all of m
  6. Well I suppose you all deserve a bit of an update since it's been radio silence since the start of the challenge, so here goes. This past week went decent in some areas and a straight up failure in others. Weight Loss/Eating Healthier - I managed to not eat like an asshole most of the week which resulted in my weight going from 237.3 -> 235.7 which is a 1.6lb loss. So that's good. And when I say "not eat like an asshole" I mean that there was not much of the regular junk I would generally shove into my body and more whole foods. It wasn't perfect, but it's a star
  7. Its time to re-enter this Battle Royale called life, drop hot and go to battle. Yes… this is a respawn of sorts, and yes… this is going to be a dun dun dun, Fornite inspired challenge! As some of you may recall ( @Laghail, @Endor) I returned to NF this past January with some weight loss and other goals in mind and I actually did quite well. Lost some pounds and got lifting on a consistent basis. Well I believe I underestimated how much of an impact you all were having on me and I kind of disappeared from the forums, and so did my effort in weight loss and working out
  8. First time in a Spezzy thread, and I like what I am reading so far. So much positivity, it's a breath of fresh air. I like the "No phone in bed" idea. Every... single... night I fall asleep watching Twitch on my phone and I have always heard that being on your phone, or on a screen of some sort is a terrible way to fall asleep. Maybe I should try reading instead. Following along!
  9. Congrats to the hubby for qualifying and running the Boston Marathon! Also... GIT EET GUURRLLL!
  10. 4 week vacation!?!?! I am ridiculously jealous! Can't wait to see those pics from Russia! Ive been dying to go to Northern Ireland, but its so damn expensive. Training looks like it has been fun the last few sessions... and on that note, don't you have Instagram? I feel like when I was around NerdFitness awhile ago I ended up following you on Insta? lol
  11. Well after taking the previous challenge off, although not totally intentionally (re; forgot about it and realized two weeks in)... I am back with two specific goals here. #1 - Reassert dominance over my lifting! What I mean by this is that my coach has me on 4x workouts per week and I have basically had the past month off of lifting, only getting in one or two workouts per day. I must get this worked out and hit those four workouts per week regardless of what else is going on in my life. #2 - Reassert dominance over my eating. While slacking off a little in the gym
  12. More 1RM testing today. Hit a HUGE PR with a 285# Back Squat today, was really happy with this. Will be in 3 wheels category sooner rather than later! Also hit a 5# PR on my CGBP at 205#, missed an attempt at 215#. Overall good day, and tomorrow the wife and I are heading into the city where I'm picking up new stuff for the gym, so thats exciting!
  13. Thanks! Yeah they are rebook Nanos, have had them since 2014? I like em!
  14. Well let's wrap this challenge up shall we? Got in a workout today, and this week is testing week... which means 1 thing, 1RM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today tested Strict Press and Deadlift, hit 145 on my Press which I don't think I have ever done, which is awesome! And hit 365 on my Deadlift, coach only had me programmed to make attempts to 355, but 355 felt smooth so I wanted to try 365 and it went well as well! Looking back on this challenge I see that my first official weigh in during this challenge was on Feb 12 where I weighed in at 230.9, today
  15. Another workout in the books this week. A - Press, work to a max 2 95,115,125,135 B - Deadlift, 2 reps every 2 mins, start at 275 and +20# every set 275,295,315,335 All reps complete. C - Rear elevated single leg RDL, 8 reps/leg x 3 sets 65,70,75 D - 2 sets @ 85-90% effort 2:30 min rowing 1 min walk 2:30 min of; 10 KBS (30#) 10 Burpees and then 1 min walk This was a gasser at high effort, but felt good. Reminded myself this morning that every workout completed is progress that i
