I sat out the last few challenges due to vacation/work travel/life. I've been on-again, off-again with working out and eating healthy (big surprise, I know). I was supposed to do a Spartan Sprint last weekend with coworkers but we ended up deferring due to collective injuries and conflicts (I am not injured but not prepared). I think we're going to be targeting a race in early November, which means I have 7 weeks to ACTUALLY TRAIN THIS TIME. As many races as I've done, every single I time I've undertrained...not just butterflies-at-the-starting-line-doubts, but clearly missed too many workouts
So here we are again. I'm a bit late posting this challenge. I had two other challenge ideas to choose from for this round, and they were both great, but I haven't been feeling it enough to take the plunge. I took my longest break from working out in AGES over the past two weeks. I had a headache/spine pain issue for a week, during which I managed one sort of half workout before accepting that I couldn't handle working out in that state.

If you wanna check the numbers out - I log my workouts on Fitocracy, and my cumulative totals on my daily battle log. (One of these days I'm going to figure out what my max-out reps are for each of
Alrighty, this tricky coyote's back in the game and is planning on F-ING FINISHING THIS TIME!!! Body: 1. Log food 6 days out of 7. I've seen how good this is for me and I need to commit to doing it. The cheat day must include ONE incredibly healthy meal in it. 2. Plan and follow through with all physical activities: it goes in the planner, and you do it when you should be doing it. Spinning should happen 2x/week, yoga 1x/week, lifting 3x/week. 3. Chocolate and sugar intake in general needs controlling. Two pieces a day is PLENTY. If you have a sweet craving, go drink water, wait an
