    I figure I'll get around doing another thread early May. I hope to see you there!

    In addition to those things, add a 1 gallon milk jug or two where you can add varying amounts of water to adjust the weight. The jugs can be used for curls and to add weight during various leg exercises. Alternatively, just buy some dumbbells or some adjustable weight dumbbells if you got the money to throw around.

    Oh, and may I recommend one of these for pull up variations?

    How much are you drinking now? Why not just drink more?

    You definitely want to drink a glass of water (or green tea) first thing in the morning, as that's when you are most dehydrated. Milk isn't going to fully cut it here, although you can drink some of that too if you want.

    Put on 3 lbs on my vacation but still 12lb better than where I started. Now 8lb to be back to target weight!

    Planning a weekend hiking this one coming which should help.

    I am bad at remembering to drink/eat/sleep when I'm sick. So pretty much, I'm hopeless. I was going to set a timer to make sure I remembered, but then I forgot about that, too.

    On Monday I walked home with stretching before and it was fine. I don't think I realized how stiff I got from sitting at school all day. Tuesday I had an appointment so I couldn't walk home. Today, I probably won't, because my side is hurting too much from coughing.

    A timer is a good idea. Just keep on at it until you remember. That, and ask someone (or several someones) to remind you.

    Green is good; symbolizes growth and new beginnings.

    When you start the new thread I would like to participate to keep myself motivated towards consistency and to be accountable. But I am starting today with measurements and a tentative plan.

    Have picked up about 10 extra lbs since we moved to the US. Would like to dump them before summer. And then maintain better fitness overall. I have been inconsistent, understandable I guess, but still I need to remake a routine for myself.

    Slowly trying to get back into it.

    I'm going out on (what could generously be called) a 3 mile trundle, around my block.

    We'll see how it goes.

    PT has been gradually getting harder. It's now far along enough to betray how out of shape I am. This pleases me, though. It's good to be able to challenge myself again, and will likely encourage me to get back into it again.

    I'll be getting my discharge routines in the next couple of weeks as well. My hips haven't clicked in over a month. ...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Just got back from the walk/jog...

    Boy am I out of shape. The silver lining to this cloud however, is that when first getting back to training, I drop weight crazy fast.

    Until I plateau that is.

    Yeah I was thinking of buying a kettlebell, but I don't know a all around good weight. I don't want to be buying like 5 different ones you know?

    The Iron Gym looks cool, but I do pullups on the tree in my front yard.
