  1. I LIVE!!! Hi everyone. Hi Mir & those other few souls who might remember me from... a year and a half ago, now, almost. Life update: I started my own small business and moved in with my girlfriend in Ypsi. Both had their startup challenges but I'm really happy I fought through them and stuck with it because they were both totally worth it. Girlfriend & the returning sun have been bugging me to get back on a workout routine, so I'm back, and going to try and drag my girlfriend to the forums too. Got a gym membership and currently trying to draw up a plan for alternating strength/interval training days. Hoping to get familiar with the gym & my current fitness abilities before the next 6 week challenge. Nice to see the Mitten thread again!
  2. Just chiming in to remind people I'm still alive. Had a rollicking last 4 months. Girlfriend and I celebrated our one-year and are officially living together now (we're in Ypsi-Arbor btw for those in the area) and I have started my own freelance writing business. The business is actually going really great (only 3 months in but already covering all living expenses) but with all the newness I've kind of fallen back on my fitness goals. The snow has kind of turned me into a homebody but if there's anyone in the A2 area who wants to meet for coffee or beer or an indoor workout, I am still getting email notifications when people post either in this thread or send me a PM. And I can personally attest that Mir's CAH game nights are a riot.
  3. So.... I'm guessing the lack of confirmation, or any other communication, means nobody's in? :/ That's sad. I'll see if I can figure out another meetup time next month. Hopefully people will be more lively in November.
  4. Sounds good then, the 18th. Do people work that Friday? I'll be off in the afternoon, so if we wanted to meet at the Zap Zone on Carpenter Rd around 6pm, play for an hour, two tops, and then go to the Beer Garden for food and booze, that'd work for me.
  5. Sounds fine, Mir. I work the 12th, so, do people want to get together maybe the 4th or 18th? I'm still voting we go to Zap Zone in Ann Arbor, play some laser tag/run around for "nerd fitness," and then go to the Beer Garden to eat and drink and socialize some.
  6. Sounds good! Anyone else up for a meetup in October? COME ON GUYS, HALLOWEEN + OCTOBERFEST, THINK OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES!
  7. Hey Megan. I don't know of any plans for a meetup yet, but hopefully there will be one in the future! You're also welcome to arrange your own. I know I have been wanting to arrange an Ypsi/Arbor central meetup for October. That's where I live, and I've recently had my gym membership expire (due to no longer working at said gym), so I'm looking for more local workout friends. I know that'd be a half-hour drive for you, though, Megan. If you're willing to make it, though, we can make plans and see who else is up for a meetup. WE NEVER DID GET TO DO ZAP ZONE/BEER GARDEN, GUYS.
  8. Last week was really bad. I dropped in motivation a lot; personal and work life kind of invaded to the point it was hard to get up in the mornings. I didn't see the point. But, it's a new week-- so I'm going to keep trying!
  9. WEEK 4 Mon: Gentle walk & Stretching (Smart) Tue: C25K (Speed) Wed: Thu: Fri: Sat: Sun: Speed Days: 1/3 Strength Days: 0/2 Smart Days: 1/2
  10. OKAY, So Bill's Beer Garden is officially open for the season! So here's my pitch: This Saturday or Sunday, around 5pm, we all congregate at the Zap Zone in Ann Arbor for an epic, Nerd Fitness Lazer Tag Rebellion! (Alternatively, if the weather is great, we could go to Putterz Golf & Games, which has putt putt, batting cages, and an arcade). Then when we're done, we go to Bill's Beer Garden for good food and great beer! Which day sounds better?
  11. Ugh, I'm getting pretty lazy about recording my activity. Not a huge deal here, when I'm just basically saying what I did which days of the week, but I WAS trying to get in the habit of recording regularly. Oh well. Not actually a goal this challenge; I'll put it on next challenge. Feeling pretty good about the challenge so far! Shins keep hurting but I'm feeling pretty good about my progress workout wise. Really liking the Zombies Run 5k app, even if I keep having technical glitches. (Got my info back but now it won't update my codex even when I got new entries... balls.) I'm also 90% done with my TEFL course... I'm hoping to be all done by this week, next week at the latest. Then I just have to worry about the first three goals!
  12. WEEK 3 Mon: Hot bath & stretches (Smart) Tue: C25K (Speed) Wed: Easy Walk (Smart) Thu: Miss (N/A) Fri: Miss (N/A) Sat: Miss (N/A) Sun: Miss (N/A) Speed Days: 1/3 (D) Strength Days: 0/2 (D) Smart Days: 2/2 (A)
  13. Yeah, ha ha! It was nice to get it back. I was a total donut and skimped out on the rest of my runs this week, though-- okay Thursday I had an excuse but yesterday I totally had all day to go running and didn't. It would have been good for me too-- I didn't do anything all day because I was in a horrible mood, but running would have made me feel better, and then I would have been more productive.
