  1. Trying something new! Hope y’all like it!
  2. Barking up a different tree... I'm taking a leaf from how I'm feeding our dogs and cat (balanced raw), because macro-counting and I don't mesh. My main aim for this challenge is to check how much I eat. Too much, too little, just right? I think I'm getting the balance of macros mostly right, most of the time. I want to eat what I feel like, without guilt of following some or other 'diet' with no subconscious guilt talks about why I should swap my batter-covered fish for plain fish... I still like a bit higher protein and fat to carbs though. But back to t
  3. Considering the latest blog post, how are people going to get their families outside? It's Autumn here in Australia and the southern part where I live it's cold and raining right now! What's your favourite outside activity when it is miserable outside so play grounds are a no-go? (no one wants a wet bum from the slide!) The plus side is all the snakes will be in hibernation by now ha ha ha
  4. I made a status yesterday that I was going to try starting morning yoga with my almost 3 year old and her 3 year old friend that I've started babysitting 3 days a week. Today marked the first day my daughter has even seen yoga. (She's mimicked my squats and lunges around the house and even has her own toy kettlebell, but this is new territory for us!) So, I Googled. I YouTubed. I came across the video below and figured it was worth a shot! Bright colors, friendly presenter, easy poses... Yep. I did the whole 20 minute video myself. I pretended to be a lion that couldn't roar, stand tal
  5. Hi. I'm new here. I stumbled across this site a few days ago when I was looking up intermittent fasting, which I find fascinating. I love the concept, the attitude, and the community, so here I am. I'd say I'm nerd-ish, but that's mostly because I don't spend as much time being nerdy with my fellow nerds as I'd like. Two kids, one gall bladder, and 3 1/2 years ago, I was pretty healthy--fit, a healthy weight, eating well, reasonably happy. I've struggled with all these things all my life, and I thought I had them all figured out. Not so much. The pregnancy hormones telling me to EAT
  6. One of the things that I can't stand to see is food going to waste. I work for a food bank, and issues about food usage and food access are very important to me. So, in the past, when my kids didn't finish their quesadillas or chicken nuggets or hot dogs or mac & cheese, I'd just finish it myself. I figured it was better to have someone enjoy the food than to see it thrown away. Now, however, I'm being much more disciplined about my own diet, and I'm less likely to want to eat something extra, just for the sake of it being eaten. Tonight, one of my boys didn't want the corn dog I'd mad
  7. Hello lifters! I hope I'm putting this topic in the right place (sorry if it's not, but I couldn't find anywhere that looked like a better spot). I have a rather silly question for people who lift kettlebells. For the next challenge, one of the things I plan on doing is a kettlebell exercise video. I'm all set with the stuff for me to do it, but my son had started really enjoying exercising with me. He's 3 1/2. He will not stand for not having his own "kettlebell" when I'm doing the video. Can anyone recommend a good stand-in? Something easy to fabricate/buy that will be sturdy enoug
  8. Battle Log. Here it is! I started this in 2012, inspired by Nerd Fitness. This is what I do instead of challenges now, as it's more long-term. i was doing both, but it was too much paperwork. I'll explain as I earn points in each of the nine areas.
  9. Probably the nerdiest thing about me is that I LOVE to watch anime. Probably the thing that I DO most often is MOM stuff. (in fact I am giving my daughter a bath right now!!.. well she is playing with toys in the bath.. I am sitting on the toilet next to her typing.) I'd like to find other people who are dealing with marriage, kids, keeping up with nerdy past-times AND trying to get healthy (in whatever way you choose). Because if we are honest with ourselves our first priority is NOT fitness (what?!!). It is probably our families, but we can STILL do it!! It is difficult, but not imp
  10. Hellooooooo.... Well, for those of you that perchance glanced at my last challenge they will notice that I went from Shanghai > London > Canada. So now I'm in Canada and by the end of this challenge I will go back to Shanghai (yay summer holidays!!!). My last challenge focused on being centered, happy and as non-stressed out and healthy as possible during those weeks. It went fairly well for the first part of it, but by the time I got back to Canada I had an epic, epic burnout and spent about a week being a piece of exhausted flesh. That part is mostly OK now, but what I would like
  11. Seriously? I'm so tired. Last night kid woke up at 2 am howling and screaming and would not stop for ages then was up at 6am. Stick a fork in me, I'm done. That's all, I just needed to get that off my chest.

    Balance, timing.

    Soo.... After last challenge, my newbie challenge, I chose assassin as my guild. But it was a super hard choice, as I have a lot of yoga going on, have for a long time, and finding balance has always been one of the key focal points of my life. So this time I'm going to post here, because I feel like this challenge I need to bring in a little more zen, and a little less badass. A few things are happening in the next few weeks, most of which are awesome, but all of which are hectic, different, and prone to pulling me off balance. 1. End of the school year, YAAAAAAHOOOO!!!! 2. Ten day
  13. Hi all, I am training for a half marathon in August and am looking for cross training options that will support my running goals and that can be done with or near my boys (ages 5 and 8) on the days they are with me. This could mean activities done around the home, or outside with the kids participating, or just outside in an environment where the kids can play some other activity nearby (like a park or school athletic field). Basically, no gym, no classes. I'm hoping this thread could become a resource for other parents as well. In a related question, is it okay to vary my cross trainin
  14. I'm getting a bit of a jump start, but here's the outline for my 12th challenge. I want to live up to my chosen alias. My life could stand more tenacity, especially given my tendency to program hop. It could also use more glee, so I'm going to spontaneously burst into choreographed song and dance every once in a while. No, wait, that's not right. See below for my plans to be more tenacious and glee-ful. Main Goal: Build muscle and lose fat, aiming at 175 lbs and 14-15% body fat by my 40th birthday (Dec 2016). Currently at 150 lbs and ~18% BF and just turned 37. Mission 1: Complete
  15. THE JOURNEY CONTINUES... Installment three. MAIN GOAL. Lower bodyfat percentage. ADDITIONAL GOALS FOR THIS CHALLENGE. Stick to personal trainers 21 day Paleo meal plan. Blog about it. LIVE IT. Work out 6 days a week in some fashion for at least 30 minutes. Drop the self-depreciation. Seriously. LIFE QUEST. One craft project a week with my children. One main craft project for myself for the duration of the challenge. MOTIVATION. This weird and oddly humbling feeling that I discovered whereby it's okay to live in the moment and not sweat the small stuff. It's given me so mu
  16. Hey, I'm teaching some kids in secondary school (ages 13 - 14) about the importance of silence in our lives. I was thinking of adding some meditation, or Yoga or Tai Chi and was wondering if some of you druids could give me some suggestions for good exercises?
  17. This is rather exciting, isn't it? Welcome to my first challenge. Let's go: Main Quest: Where do you want to be in a few months? I want to be living on a paleo diet. I'm a Weight Watchers leader, but I don't think the two ideas are mutually exclusive. Both involve a lot of vegetables, after all, and I won't get fired for going paleo. I trialed a paleo diet for my husband and I last year (before Christmas) and we both felt better for it, especially my husband. Along with paleo for us, I want to work on a better diet for our two children. Last year both our 4 year old son and 2 year old daug
  18. Whenever I meet new people I get nervous and start talking nonstop about myself so that after a 10 minute conversation I've usually learned nothing more than their name. So, let's try that shall we? I'm normally called Andrea and I live in Melbourne, Australia with my husband, two kids, a cat and a large amount of yarn. When my daughter was six weeks old (August 2011) I joined Weight Watchers (again) and lost 18kg, 30kg in total from the day I had my baby. It took me 33 weeks, and I started working for the company as a leader almost straight away. My weight was 63kg, I weighed almost 15kg
  19. Probably the nerdiest thing about me is that I LOVE to watch anime. Probably the thing that I DO most often is MOM stuff.

  20. Alrighty, then... time to get this done! MAIN QUEST: To weigh 190 lbs by September 8, 2013, and to have a body fat percentage of <15% by Dec 31, 2013. Mission #1: Eliminate soda and other sugary drinks from my diet, completely. I currently drink around 500 calories a day in soda and other sugary drinks. By eliminating these, alone, I shed 3,500 calories (that's one pound) per week from my diet!!! I will replace these drinks with 100 ounces of water each day, supplemented by teas (unsweet) and coffee (black) as needed for now. A: No sugary drinks in a day; 100 ounces of water. B: N
  21. I'm going to be a Dad in June! I have every intention of remaining committed to my running and overall fitness throughout the kid's life, and a running stroller seems like a great way to minimize time spent away. What brands, features, and details should I be considering? A reasonable price is, of course, welcome, but I'm okay with spending extra if it means a better experience or a safer ride.
