AlwaysReading is ready to start moving!


Recommended Posts

Hey AlwaysReading! Welcome! I'm Lullaby, one of the Ambassadors for the Assassins' Guild. I picked up on your body weight training (7MWC) and wanted to share some info with you. :)

 

Here's a link to more information about the Assassins' Guild. We also have a Q&A chat thread for Level 1's where you can stop by and ask any questions you might have. We also have an Assassin Phonebook that lists the skills of our Assassin so be sure to check it out.

 

There's also a chat thread called the Assassins' Den where we hang out and chat. If you have any questions, I as well as the other Assassins are happy to help you out. You can reach me by using the private messenger system (click the envelope at the top right of the screen) or you can post on my thread.

 

My water bottle is only 750ml and I know I should be drinking 2-3 of those a day, but since I've recently had trouble finishing one a day I didn't want to set my goals too high.

 

When I was first trying to drink more water, I placed my water bottle in my line of vision on my desk. Whenever I noticed the bottle in the eye of my eye, I would have to take a drink. It worked pretty well. Maybe it can help you with drinking more water.

 

Looking forward to see how you do with your challenge.

It's weird, as I've always found myself to be the opposite - it's about the only time I'm able to just get away from everything, so I quite like going solo. That said, I do find that going to the gym with a group is a lot easier! 

 

Good job for the first day: drinking enough water is weird - as Amdhiel said, some days it's so easy and other days just impossible! Are you carrying your water bottle with you, or leaving it somewhere for pit stops?

 

Since I'm a student and in the hospital all day I really don't have a space where I can keep a water bottle. My only option right now is before I start in the morning, at lunch if I get one, and when I get home at night.

Have you seen "Fresh" or "Food Inc"

I heard about Fed Up, but haven't seen it yet.

I have seen "Food Inc."  Fed Up is right on par with that and it just came out on DVD last week.
