  1. Given the new movie is out and I walk through the streets in which its set every blinking day, figured it was time for a Trainspotting challenge... Plus an excuse for a lot of Ewan McGregor pictures (Kevin McKidd and Jonny Lee Miller are also acceptable). I've got just over a week until my first comp of the year and I'm currently recovering from a nasty hip flexor strain, so lots to talk about. Choose Lifting I'm training four days a week with just a couple of sessions off for the comp. I'm doing okay-ish with hitting the heavy singles but the volume is intim
  2. I thought it might be time that I actually started a battle log for my workouts rather than boring everyone in challenges by wandering off topic. I have a couple of competitions coming up, although I'm waiting to hear about sponsorship subsidies before putting in my entry forms (or next week, whichever comes sooner). For anyone who hasn't come across me before, I took up lifting in April 2013, started competing in February 2014 and I'm heading to my first national championship in September 2014. I don't eat clean. I stress out about the scale (it
  3. Okay, so those of you who have been following my challenges know that I've not had the best time of things of late. Between illness and misfortune, I'm still sitting at a much lower total than I'd like and feeling kinda down because I don't really have a coach who bucks me up when things are going badly. Things might turn around after this weekend but just feeling resigned to getting there and making a total rather than setting the world on fire. Anyway, as an antidote to this, I have decided that the next challenge needs to be about having fun! I don't have a coach aft
  4. I'm going to be a little easy on myself this time around and not set hugely challenging goals, but just ones that need to be worked on! I've got the Four Nations championships on 3 December so I want to be physically and mentally ready. Get my head in the game. My mind is a large part of what's holding me back so I'm going to work through some sports psychology books and exercises to try to change my mindset. I still really struggle to see myself as a good lifter so I need to give myself a firm talking to and start to see myself as others do. Look after myself. G
  5. So it's my first day back to the grind after a proper week of rest following the British Classic. It's not exactly the Camp NF Powerlifting Championships, but I still managed to take fourth in the 63s for the third year in a row. I couldn't have done better in terms of positioning but my second squat was so easy that I'm frustrated about the screw-up with my third. Still sitting around 382 Wilks, which is frustrating. I'd like that easy 400. That nice, round, shiny number. So on with the quest! I'm waiting to have it confirmed, but it's very likely that I'll
  6. Tale as old as time, true as it can be... Okay... so it's just under five weeks until British Classic so figured that fitted rather well with this challenge cycle. Get a waist like Belle I'm running WAAAAY over my weight class at the moment. I'm confident that I can make it back but track calories consistently and honestly to make sure I can get my weight back to within 1-1.5kg of 63kg by the beginning of comp week so I only need to do a light water cut. SW: 66.2kg (16 August). I'll post my weight and calories every day along with
  7. GOALS NOW ADDED (original post below) I have confidence in me Say something nice about yourself every day and share with the class. Push It Eat 2600 calories a day (or an average of 18200 a week) and evaluate based on how my weight fluctuates. I like to move it, move it Do yoga once a week. Go to pilates once a week. Have a massage once during the challenge. Sing Sing. Don't care when or how or if I post video, but just to spend a little bit of time once a week singing either at the piano or along to musicals. -------------------------------------
  8. Something has changed within me, something is not the same. I'm through with playing by the rules of someone else's game. Too late for second guessing, too late to go back to sleep, It's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes... and leap! Okay... I'll stop with the lyrics! I realised that it's crazy that I've gone so long without a musicals themed challenge! I'm through accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change, but 'til I try I'll never know. I care too much about what people think... I
  9. Deadlifts have always been my sticking point in competition. I'll go to pull the second or third lift and it'll feel tough and I'll just give up! Third attempt deadlift (135kg) - 2 December 2016 - Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships Yesterday I did my first competition for six months. My coach took charge of my attempts. I opened at 130kg (I've done it in training whilst feeling like death, so no fear on that) and then put 140kg in for my second attempt. I was terrified. It was tough. It went up but, as many of you will be aware, there are times when you
  10. Placeholder at the moment, but there will be housework-related goals, some focus on positivity after a few months of being peeved at feeling fat and useless, loads of pictures of me jaunting around Thailand and preparation for doing so. SpecialSundae sparkles with positivity Look for something in every day that is positive and share it. Bounce with happiness when I can. Try to ignore the demons but share them to allow other people to help when it's bad. Say something positive about every workout. Do your accessory work (maximum two sessions compressed into o
  11. A bit of a new spin this challenge... Actually challenging myself! Main challenge - I am not a tidy person. My house is, quite frankly, an embarrassment and that's going to take more than one challenge to turn that around. Grant and I are going to clear out the house, probably get rid of c. 25-50% of the things in it, and get it clean and tidy again. We've already taken down some really grotty old blinds and started putting away the piles of laundry, but a non-exhaustive list of things we need to do is below: Get rid of all the excess toiletries in the bathroom Clear out the boxes of
