    Week 1 ended on a whimper for me, but I did complete it, and I learned an important lesson.

    Which is, it takes much longer to recover properly from each workout if your sleeping and eating habits get fouled up. This isn't really a surprise in itself, but what caught me somewhat off guard was the severity of the energy drop. Live and learn.

    I'm hoping to try a little harder this next week. Also next month I'll be starting college, so I'm hoping to go lacto-ovo vegetarian. I can't do it now because my dad will give me grief, and anyway I won't eat meat at most cheap food establishments so I don't have much of a choice
    Great report! And it makes me happy to hear that you were feeling the hurt. You gotta love that soreness. Is that the first week exercising for you?

    I have a alot of respect for the lacto-ovo vegetarian diet. Good luck with it.

    And then you have the TP/FJ (me) descriptions of progress:
    Hey, what works for you. It's the exercising that's important, not the reporting. The reporting is just a fun way to identify and measure progress.

    Just remember that if you don't make your goals, you only lose cheats. I fully expect and even hope that people will use them to some extent. I already know I'll need to use one the week of the 26th.

    Great job. Have the situps gotten any easier yet? Also, I'm glad you had a great vacation

    Hey, you identified an area of improvement. I consider that a pretty good week. I know for myself, I have a hard time continuing exercise if I don't have a semi-healthy diet. There's just something about incentive and energy levels. Perhaps instead of trying to exercise more, you might want to focus on leaving the exercise levels the same and begin working on diet. (Exercise + diet usually fixes sleep.)

    I've been exercising this summer but not very regularly, and this was the first week in a long time that I'd done a lot of weights. It's good to feel it working though

    And thanks!

    Went for a hike today at the nearby nature center since I want to volunteer there. Worked off some of the fat from last night's cake and BBQ extravaganza.

    Will do workout later today.

    Default Week 2 Has Begun!

    Oh yeah - today is Monday, which means Week 1 is officially behind us! I have to say, you guys did a wonderful job.

    For those that are playing along on the "Last man standing" contest, I will need some reports from you if you haven't been keeping us up to date. Here are the people I have noted as completing week 1:

    Antimony
    caf
    Colors
    EffEmDoubleyou
    Elaur
    ergophobe
    Feops
    Fidelia
    Jeffster
    kelric
    Kyuuei
    ladypinkington
    Little Linguist
    PinkPiranha
    Pitseleh
    poppy
    Santtu
    ScantilyClad
    Tallulah
    Trinity
    Udog
    Wolfy
    Clonester
    Eck
    erm
    Blackcat
    Winged


    Since this is week one, I'll PM the remaining people to see if they are still interested in participating in the contest, and if they have submitted all their exercises. I'll update the above list as I receive responses.

    For future weeks, how about if I post my records in the thread. People will be free to correct and update me, and if I don't hear from ya by Friday, I will automatically deduct the cheats. Does that sound fair to everyone?

    Well, last week I focused solely on running. I'm now doing ~3 miles each run, up from ~1 mile at the start of the week. (5 runs)

    This coming week, the plan is to maintain that distance and intensity for 4 runs, and introduce pull ups and chin ups to the regime.

    oh, I did own week 1 or whatever, I've been doing cardio on an almost dialy basis for months i mean, it's just that i'm not the kiss and tell type, so if i don't talk about it it means i'm just doing it.
    I've been doing 2 hours+ a day most of the week in fact.

    In my opinion, over talking about some 'goal' just gives one the illusory feeling that he or she acted on it independantly of actually achieving anything.
