Recommended Posts

I always find that if the weather is great I'm in a much better mood as well!  My grandmother thinks I have some form of S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder) And that I should get one of those daylight bulbs :P  as far as I'm concerned, as long as I haul my ass out of bed and get on with what I ahve to do, the day was a succcess regardless of mood.

 

Yay for banananas! :D

Staying strong, beast diet mode!!!  ...Or zen master mode, now making tea and going to fill up my vitamin D tanks :)

Thank you for the support!

 

Stay strong! You can do this! 

 

Good thinking with the tea. I often find that if I'm feeling hungry late at night, I'm either thirsty or tired. Best just to ignore the fridge all together :)

 

Good luck! You're doing awesome.

Help everyone, damsel in distress over here!

 

Tomorrow's paleo day and I am so afraid to give in to temptation and eat loads of chocolate spread on yummy evil bread...

"But why do you even have these in your kitchen?", you ask. Well I don't, but my in laws do and I'm holidaying at their house until Monday.

Scary visions of buttered slices of bread covered in a mountain of hagelslag have started to invade my thoughts  :nightmare:

 

Writing about it is already making me feel better though, amazing side effect of asking for help it would seem! 

Nutella is like liquid crack for me (and safe to assume, plenty of others.)

 

That's the great thing about this forum. Sometimes just venting a little bit and getting thoughts out of your head makes things easier. Routing for ya.

Love your challenge and LOVE Sailor Moon. I used to be (still am, who are we kidding) a big Sailor Pluto fan. Always jealous of that hair.

 

I've been considering getting calipers, Let me know how you get on with them.

 

I will definitely check out the Tibetan Yoga. I'm currently just doing sun salutations, mostly because I can feel the stretch in my hamstrings, but always looking for alternatives.

 

Looking forward to your updates.

Thank you! Thank you! I wish I had seen it during the day when I was tempted, I would have thrown the jars out the window in an explosion of willpower! (maybe good that I see it today actually...)

 

 

Just dropped by to say,

 

You're awesome!

 

That is all.

 

Just saying thanks, you're awesome too! No wait, that's too chill an answer... THANK YOUUUUUUUU is more like it! ;)

Oh, nutella is one of the reasons why I am grateful to have become lactose intolerant (along with milka) it is evil!

Thank you Teros, sincerely, it's great to read this :) you've got it exactly right about getting the thoughts out. Helps tremendously.

Aaaaargh, double posting! Sorry!

 

Sooo, I guess it's time for WEEK 1 - REPORT !

 

#1 Beginner bodyweight workout 3x/week

2x/week until October 6th : fail. Joined the challenge Wednesday evening, completed 1st BBWW on Thursday. Went on a great bike ride on Sunday instead of doing 2nd BBWW, it's not as good for my body but was definitely better for my mind, it was refreshing and invigorating as it can get! so I don't feel too bad about it :) also, will not forget to stretch my gluteuses from now on.

 

#2 Five Tibetans yoga exercises every morning

7 repetions until October 6th : pass! I did it every morning and it was wonderful! It always makes me feel so good, I especially feel a huge relief in my back right afterwards.

 

#3 Eat cleaner

1. One day full paleo per week : as you know, it was hard, but I did it! Thanks to ya all it's a pass! :D

2. No alcohol allowed : pass!

 

 

Overall : I am really happy after this short first week in the challenge! What makes me the happiest of it all, more than having created a momentum in yoga practice, more than completing 3x10 push-ups, even more than eating freaking palé-O for a whole day, it's all the interactions I've had on the forums! :) with you guys here or on your threads (which is the best!!). I did not expect it to be such a fantastic feeling and booster, it's AWESOME :D

 

Now week 2 is starting, let's get down to it and blow those body weight workout records! (with 2 sessions, oh yeah!) Let's do it guys!!

 

Oh, and, group hug again!! (warning you tactile defensivees out there, if you ever meet me AFK, I am a hugger!)

Hi Mera! Welcome to the NF forum, I see you're brand new here :)

I've also been curious about the sun salutations for a while; I should try them because it's the second time it comes up this week. I'll check your challenge out :) love your NF name btw!

Usagi's always been my favourite, I feel so much like her xD I agree though sailor pluto's hair is amazing, she's one of the most beautiful sailor senshis! Let's admit it, we are childish and in the best way possible :) Yelling "Moon prism power, make up" once or twice a month is therapeutical xD

Good job!  You should be super proud right now :D  first steps, achieved!

 

Fun facts about Nol, second episode... I LOVE OTTERS, they are so cute, I luuuv them! All little mammals like this actually, but otters are really, really high on the list, I'd say 2nd position after cats! It's the best gif you could have found :D

Seriously though, thank you calla! mille fois!

OMG that otter is adorebs! *otter dance*

 

Sun salutations are quite fun! I started doing them a few months ago then stopped after my surgery. But now that I'm talking about them, I may be having withdrawals. Off to salute the sun >>

Oh, did you try them again? how does it feel after so long? I hope it all helps strengthening your body, it's great if you can get back on this habit :)

 

 

I love this helpful Yogi Bear illustration of the Sun Salutation (although I do the short one)

This is awesome! Thank you!! Some movements are quite similar to the 5 Tibetan rites, looks like I'd definitely love this, hehe! I won't fail to tell you when I try them out :)

Good job on your first week Nol! You are doing great. How did you feel on the paleo day? Any difference in your energy level?

 

Thank you :) I barely slept the night before my paleo day (drunk coffee at a party to avoid alcohol, not the smartest) which did not give me an advantage energy-level wise, I was pretty tired all day and had to nap. I have very sensitive intestines though and they were very, very thankful. I'm not far from having IBS, that's my main motivation for going paleo actually :)

I had read your challenge before but I hadn't written anything. It sounds like you have a lot to think about concerning your past/current health issues, but I'm sure you'll do great. It's inspiring to see someone take charge though, you know? I'm also super interested in Paleo, I'm a biological anthropology student so I study this kind of stuff anyways, I've just never tried it out.

Post food pics!!!! :D
