  1. 10.10.15 Not super psyched with the past couple of days! No gym Thursday - but I DID have a job interview which I feel was promising! so that stressed me out a bit and I had a couple of drinks Thursday night. I should have gone to the gym, but I made excuses and now regret it. No more excuses if I want this badly enough. Yesterday I also didn't go to the gym, and once again I think I made a poor excuse. I donate plasma every two weeks on a Friday afternoon. They say to not lift heavy objects or go to hard after a donation but I have before without fainting or anything, so maybe I would have b
  2. Hell no to the blizzard! Especially at a beast!! Haha I live in Australia (Queensland in fact) for very good reason I have run on some pretty warm days, but that suits me just fine. Ran in a brooding thunderstorm in Sydney start of the year, but snow = nope! Just no way haha I have always wanted to join the army here in Aus. I'm a cook by trade and thought I'd get my ticket through the services I know navy and airforce have less entry requirements, but it doesn't inspire me as much - so I'm just going to keep working and perhaps join the reserves as soon as I can.
  3. I would highly recommend you rectify this problem asap, it's weird as hell mind you 😅
  4. Haha yeah, I found NF a couple years ago and the community was just so awesome wish there were more rebels in Australia! Nothing better than friends who are both into kicking arse in the gym and at final fantasy
  5. Hey! We have a really similar story it seems, although I've always wanted to join the forces and have yet to reach those fitness goals for entry just yet... Anyways, how good are Spartan races?! I've done something like 14 OCRs so far this year, but as you would know, they are just as much about heart as they are about fitness, and its one thing to finish (which is awesome in itself) but another to look back on those photos and think "feck yeah I was a beast and smashed it!" I want that second feeling in the future I god damn love beer too btw Haha so feel free to throw me a pm if you ever wa
  6. Welcome! I love supermarkets and if I wasn't over the pond would totally offer to come help you out haha the best advice anyone ever gave me about supermarkets and shopping to eat healthy: only buy stuff which is on the parimiters of the shop- in other words, don't go down the isles! Seriously, assuming your supermarket is similar to mine (and they are all scarily designed the same for marketing reasons) if you just stick to the outsides, you're only going to buy fresh produce, meat, some dairy etc the second I step down an isle (unless I know exactly what I need) I ALWAYS find something else
  7. Haha thanks! I think so much of my journey is going to be about being honest with myself, honest when I look in the mirror, with how I still feel about the past and what I want for my future. This thread is just as much about reminding myself how far I've come mentally as it is about physical improvements 7/10/2015 Today I woke up dreaming of running the Spartan race this weekend in Sydney. MAN I wish I could go! But alas, I haven't had a chance to recover my savings and have tuition to pay in the coming months My head for some reason is having one of those "think of all the embarrassing shi
  8. Almond milk perhaps? Unsweetened (or maybe a sweetened one to help you wean off C&S?) I love that shit. There are so many options out there now too, mixes with coconut milk or cashew milk. Not sure where you're posting from, but the options for pretty clean nut milk are good just from the super market here in Australia- although I did have to try a couple brands before I found one which doesn't "split". Otherwise I drink my coffee black and cold (just like my heart haha). Seriously, I find if you drink it black over ice, the cold takes away some of the bitterness and it's bloody good if
  9. Good stuff Chris! Keep working at it and take those damn gyms for all they're worth! Haha
  10. Tuesday 6/10/2015 Good day was good! Diet on target, minor 3pm binge on protein bar and blueberries. Didn't get to the gym, but did make sure I hit my 10k steps. Class was good, when isn't it when you get to play with puppies all day and I think I'm feeling less anxious. All part of the healing. Also got a possible interview for a new job! Whoop! Getting out of the kitchen will hopefully help with my stress and food intake
  11. Urg, that fun "my jeans don't fit after leg day" thing actually has a purpose? I honestly was starting to think it was just me haha
  12. Paleo is awesome for not counting calories... Assuming you have an already good relationship with food. I had awesome success (and still stand by the lifestyle as it makes sense to me) when I was coping with life and in a good place, but I also have seriously disordered eating when I'm stressed out. End of the day if you're paleo but eating cans of coconut cream or a lot of nuts, paleo cookies etc, you're not going to lose weight haha It's not a silver bullet is my point id absolutely say give it a go tho, the benefits when done right are just awesome. And don't stress about organic etc I'm a
  13. Earthdate: 5/10/2015 - public holiday Tl;dr Ate well all day, didn't count calories but kept it paleo and only ate for the right reasons. Walked in the morning, big deadlift session at the gym, then walked again this evening (cooler for the doggles). Busted out an over due assignment, and in bed at reasonable time for class tomorrow. High five me! Long boring shit: First new day off the ranks has been a good one. Took a walk in the morning and used the time to think. I got out of a shit relationship a year ago and it's been eating me up. But recently some of that weight has been lifting, as
