    Had some time after work so I did 8 sets of 25 push ups, about 30 pull ups and some crunches.

    I'm new to this contest bit. Good luck, everyone.

    My goals are to be physically capable of:

    10 unassisted pullups
    10 plio pushups (I can do the normal variety.)
    Holding a handstand for 10 seconds
    6-minute mile
    Cartwheels (this is more fear than inability, but eh)
    Extended flexibility (in certain areas)
    ...and for my pants to require a belt to hold them up.

    (I don't do inches or weight because that is not my focus.)

    Per week:

    • 3-4 weight lifting sessions
    • 3 heart-pumping activities (FUN ONES)
    • 7 stretching sessions, after working out or waking up if it's a non-workout day.
    • ...Arrr, matey.

    P.S. Need to actually eat enough. I eat healthily, but lose appetite when stressed, which then makes me sick. Yay for remembering.

    The crunches were not too bad. I think I can make them part of my pre-nap routine. It will be hard on the days when my routine is messed up, like tomorrow, I have to take a kid to an appointment at the time I'd normally be napping. Will need to think of a plan B routine.

    Tonight, the normal evening walk won't be a problem, but I will have to plan ahead to make it work tomorrow because I have an evening meeting at the community center. Probably will need to figure out something to throw into the crock pot.

    I really hate when my routine is off. I think I'm getting set in my ways.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Awrite, awrite... The Pink did an hour and a half of walking, leg lifts, calf raises, etc plus 6 lb weights for upper body.

    How do you train for the swimming portion of a triathlon?
    Swimming is next on the docket. You're right: it's killer cardio. Plus, it works an array of muscles - much more than does simple jogging.

    Welcome! Exercise is often an excellent appetizer moderator. My desire for sweets and excessive foods diminishes, while my basic hunger for something substantial increases. Hopefully you'll experience something similar with a bit of time.

    An alternate plan B routine is a good idea. Depending on how your schedule and goals align, you can also focus your days off for the "B" days while integrating exercise as a habit on A days.

    Mighty! When I flex the only thing I notice ripping is my pants. I'm a inverse Incredible Hulk. My sleeves and pant legs remain intact while everything in the middle... well, you get the idea.

    Do you have any good suggestions on facilitating access to a pool? My gym, sadly, does not have one, and my apartment complex's pool closes this weekend.

    I actually do workout regularly - but only with weight lifting. I just got back into the swing of things and have been on a plateau of sorts. Hopefully I'm still allowed here. I really do need to remember to eat, but the extra activity should spike it, 'tis true.

    Exercise:


    I'm at home all day today with my son, but I've been trying to stay active all day. I have a very messy house to clean, and i heard that cleaning house can actually burn quite a few calories, so i have cleaned the kitchen so far, and i still have 2 bathrooms, living room, 2 bedrooms and lots of laundry and vacuuming to do! I also took Brady to the park and i chased him around and then carried him back home on my back, so that had to count for some sort of cardio.

    When my significant other gets home I'm going to go to the park and walk/run a mile or so and then do some work on my arms with some 5lb barbells. (i'm weak) Maybe some Wii Fit Later tonight.

    FOOD:
    I'm trying to get my metabolism to work better for me, so i'm trying to eat small meals at regular intervals. I'm doing pretty well with that, and i'm not particularly hungry right now, so that's good. I've maybe been eating tooo many carbs though.
    I've had roughly 750 calories so far today. I'm trying to stay between 1500 and 1800.

    Level 2: Complete.

    I lent Pinky my t-shirt and she inhaled so mighty that it tore it clean off of her. It was my favorite shirt. I think Pink should be voted off the island. It's not fair if you already start out a beast.
