  1. Thanks! I had a play last night - did an ab-heavy yoga workout, then some floor chest presses (hmm, might need to find something to raise my body with, don't get enough range of motion on the floor), rows, squats, lunges and shoulder presses. I can see why dudebros skip leg day - aieeee! Still feeling those squats today! Even though I'm only using wee little weights Is there a good deadlifty thing I can try with DBs?
  2. Hey nerds, I'd like to start lifting a few times a week from home. I have a motley collection of dumbbells, a floor and a yoga mat. Can anyone recommend a good basic selection of moves for whole body strength? Thanks! [emoji8] 35yo chick, currently horse riding, walking and yoga-ing. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

  4. Things that don't help disciplined eating: - selling chocolates for charity. Meaning there's a box of 50 odd chocolates at home, and another at work, giving me saucy looks all the livelong day... - finding a dead dude. And being a stress eater. With chocolates in the house... Anyhoo, I'm trying to log any wickedness, and keep moving moving.
  5. Okies, so even though I posted this today, I have been on the challenge-wagon for 3 days. Food logged, check. Exercise - Monday and Tuesday, silly Wii-dancing - still totally counts as cardio! - and today, 2 sets of the BBW circuit. Brain - essay writing - blergh!
  6. So, third time lucky? Have tried a couple of challenges before, but Life got in the way... but going to try try try again! So, my goals... 1. Log my calorie intake on Myfitnesspal, and try to stay within budget (one cheat day a week allowed) 2. Strength train at least twice a week. At the moment, going with the Beginner Bodyweight routine, but might chuck some free weights in as time goes on. 3. Cardio work at least twice a week. Riding my horse doesn't count, unless I do some serious flatwork. 4. Keep that brain ticking! Either study for my course (in addition to going to class) or research Something Interesting at least twice a week. Why? Because when my body is active and I eat better, I feel better... (well, duh!) Because going back to uni doesn't give me a free pass on diet/exercise. Because I want to feel strong and capable, not bloblike. Let's go!
  7. I have nothing to add to this conversation, except that Starbuck and Claudia Black/Aeryn are my fitness inspirations too... yay scifi girls!
  8. Dude, I WISH I had the body/confidence to rock booty shorts! *dreams*
  9. I had some killer periods back in the day - now I take the pill, and skip them most of the time (maybe have a period 3-4 times a year). Heaven!
  10. Banana pancakes! Squash one large banana, stir in an egg, maybe a tablespoon of nut butter or LSA if you like, then cook like a pancake. So good!
