Tea's Training To Be A Kickass Shield Maiden


Tearose

Recommended Posts

What a brilliant life goal! Also, I don't quite think you are aged at all! Heck! You are better than us youngins' combined! Age should define who you are; what really defines you is your heart and soul and that, my wonderwoman, is as young as a puppy :D

Class and Profession: Rangers
Background: 25 year old Nerdling. Here to kick some health......butt?? I need to work on that.

Ugh I hate doing cable pull throughs in public.

 

But you did them, so great work.  I should be as brave as you.  I haven't ever done the barbell hip thrusts, even though I should.

Looks like a great start to the new challenge.  Keep up the good work.

You've got this. We need to see and recognize that we fail in order to succeed, which puts you steps ahead. You're already getting closer to your goals as you work and contemplate and plan. You're already a Shield Maiden, I'd say. I'm definitely subbing to encourage you to keep going!  B)

Well, this were 4 weight training days in a row. No wonder you're exhausted! :)

 

Hi Magnhild! Yes today and tomorrow I have off from weight training. I did some cardio today though.

 

When writing on the computer? Or do you write everything on a mobile phone?

Hi Magnhild! Yes today and tomorrow I have off from weight training. I did some cardio today though. I am on my computer.

Sozzilou! Hi! :D

Hi Erick, they are not the most public friendly exercises, I always feel exceedingly self conscious, but I keep telling myself that is anyone IS smirking now, they won't be smirking in a few months! ;) Thanks!

Thanks Hansjay! I definitely don't feel my age, well my brain doesn't, sometimes my body does. lol

 

 

So I had the most amazing start to my day.  I feel more motivated then ever to reach my goals. :)

You are a shieldmaiden of the Rohan! to die in a cage will not be your fate! Take up you sword! I will go into battle with you...through Subbing! Awesome progress by the way! also, what sort of books do you normally read, as something of a bibliophile I could not overlook your statement about reading flow and that you were reading again lol

Yay Snake! Yes we will battle together! I don't read as much as I would like, I pretty much read everything, lately it all seems to be about happiness, success, mental strength and perceptions. If that makes sense. I am TRYING to listen to The Way of Shadows at work.

OH! Great dinner! Did you know, potato actually helps to reduce stress levels? So, consider yourself, "Destressed"

potato also helps to reduce you sad levels, think of any potato dish, no matter how healthy, or unhealthy and then imagine yourself trying to be sad while eating it

two cases in point

chili cheese fries:

ChiliCheeseFries11.jpg

 

and broccoli baked potato

broccoli-and-cheese-twice-baked-potatoes

 

apropos of my being a smart ass about potatoes, I now want baked potatoes

 

Also, Tea, I am incredibly jealous of your dinner, chicken and bacon is always good :-p

Haha Hansjay,  It sure feels like it after you eat it you usually get a ''happy glow'' and then fall asleep. Haha
