'course i missed ya, HEAPS!!!!
Opti- run4 life, i googled mud run auckland yesterday, guess what, there is one and only one, in July. entry opens 1st april, so i'll be entering then, told jenny and she was nah who wants to run in mud, then i showed her a vidoe from last year and she was hell teah that looks like fun :-) so we in.!!!!!!!
thanks for making me look.
opti how cool is itthat they say you skinny you don't need gym, man thats one for my bucket list, lose enough weight so somebody says that to me:-)
gotta run, cant stick photo's on here???? will try again later.
This is my new goal...
To be able to do a handstand pee. :-)
ear plugs in nostrils
get upside down
have good balance
keep mouth shut
push real hard.
now that's a worthy bucket list goal. HAHAHAHA
Donald you are tooooo much. Laugh did me good.
Oh Donald!!!! You never change!!! Somehow I can picture you putting this on your goal list. Men! It's good to see that you're still making strides. Better watch out, Legs will get you in some type of fitness competition. I can't wait to see your final after picture. I'm so proud of you!
Legs - On my word.....look at those arms of yours and that six pack....my goodness woman. You're amazing!
I've been plugging along making slow progress, but progress none the less. And then guess what......I'm pregnant! Yep, really at 40. But hubby and I are very, very happy. Now the trick for me is......to keep eating properly and do some type of workouts, even if it's walking, when I'd rather puke. There's no falling off the wagon for nine months!!!!! No can do. So many of you have helped me get where I am and I want to continue moving in the right direction.
Anyway, just thought I'd share and pop in with the news. Take care everyone!
damn 1st steph now you. what a cool day. 2 ladies that havn't posted for ages who's posts i have missed BIG time both in here same day. :-)
how the hell are you..
and what amazing news. Bonny preggers, up the pole, bun in the oven WOOHOOOOO!!!!
that is such good news.
ladies, see what happens when ya do BFL, shed a few pounds(well bonny has lost more than a few...) next thing hubby takes notice, like what he see's and hubba hubba. HAHAHAAHA yep, do BFL and you too could be knocked up at 40. :-)
Bonny i am SO happy for you.
Gotta be honest i am not sure how i would react if jenny told me that she was preggie, well considering i been nutered i know how i would repond, BUT what i mean is to have a baby at 40, i think i'm getting too grumpy, LMAO grumpy old man. don't have tha patience anymore, but there again my kids are older than yours so maybe thats just me being an old fart.
So ...like you said NO falling off the wagon, no Tom & Jerry's ice cream cravings at 3 a.m. chased with PB sandwiches and gallons of coke.
you such a strong woman i have no doubt you will keep a lid on things.
now don't be such a stranger...missed ya heaps.
CONGRATULATIONS BONNIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know you can do this. I am very happy for you. Please, Please don't be a stranger. Keep us posted.
Welcome back Stephanie!
Donald-you amaze me how you keep pushing yourself towards your goals, a true inspiration!
Legs-what can I say....you are Superwoman!
Bryan-you are a crazy running freak...that's a good thing lol
Well Danno is healing well...just hoping for good results from the biopsy.
Got home from work yesterday and all the dry wall in our gym is hung, now they have to do all the mud. I pick up my elliptical on Wednesday or Thursday WooHoo! I feel like a slug, I really haven't done much for working out lately as everything is all piled up and in a mess. Hopefully by next week I will have the gym painted!
So Donald and MO have me really fired up for some CrossFit workouts. I've decided that I'm going to do a mixture of BFL and CrossFit once my gym is up and running. I've been doing a lot of reading about CrossFit and I like the functionality of it, I think it will help me at work a lot. My eating will definitely remain BFL.
Better get back to work. Have a great day all!
See this is something I missed. What's wrong with Danno???
Stephanie-Danno had surgery to remove what turned out to be a tumor. He's back to his normal happy self. Just hoping it was a fatty tumor.
Me too. Give him a hug from me.
Thanks for the congrats Donald and Steph. (-: I just hope that at 40 the baby and myself will be okay. Last time (three years ago) I had pre eclampsia. But the good thing about that, it forced me to get serious with my health after our little guy was born. Hence, BFL!
Oh Donald....you can't be a grumpy old man. You've got too much humor in you and BFL, CF and eating right are keeping you young! Forever Young! PB sandwiches and Coke - nah, but that ice cream could be a challenge. (-; Actually, last time I craved Olive Garden's salad and jalapeno peppers. I'm pretty sure that yogurt and cottage cheese are out though.....too much a gag reflex on those. Also, I did not exercise my last two pregnancies so I've got a lot to figure out. I hear that it's okay to weight lift (less weight, more reps), light aerobics, etc. I'll have to see what works but that still leaves me with energy to get through the day. Anyway, thanks again for the congrats. Keep up the good work and I'll try not to be such a stranger.
Day 2 of week 2, done HIIT workout, TM. loved it, Beautiful sunny morning and afternoon here in N,S. Canada.
Welcome back Stephanie!!!! missed you. glad to have you back.
Donald~You Crazy man, I bet that will be one of your goals now, You amaze me how you keep me laughing everytime, I open my emails and have to go on BFL.
Legsy~ You Stay Strong!!!! Your amazing lady.. =)
Bryan~You are a freak...that's one good crazy running freak tho... keep up the great work..
oh my! what a reunion going on here! congrats bonwitty!! And welcome back steph!!
When i said I'm probably nuts for starting a new BFL challenge the same week as a new class I'm taking starts: I was right!! I AM NUTS! Got the syllabus and for the first 24 hours I was freaking out at the workload. It's not all that much really. But with the 2 jobs and refocusing on a new Challenge, it's a bit much. I've got a friend who's always too scared to try new things by herself, and she asked me to take her to my healthy grocery store. I said sure and we had a date and time picked out. But now I had to cancel 'cuz my time is so precious and I need to work on my homework whenever possible. She sounded disappointed and I just want to shake her and ask, "Why can't you just go by yourself or take someone else with you to a simple grocery store??" Sorry, I'm just so independent that that behavior drives me nuts.
So anyway I thought of dropping the class, which won't benefit me at all in the long run. i've looked at my week and planned out when I will do every task, like paying bills, getting 1 paper written, go to the bank, write 2nd paper, etc. I feel a lot better now that I've set aside time and thought about what's gonna have to be sacrificed for now.
I've been eating TERRIFCally all week though! Too busy to even think about junk food or drive thrus. Got plenty of chicken and fish in the freezer. I KNOW that eating bad things will only slow me down when for the next couple months I will need all the energy I can get! Also been drinking a gallon of water each day.
oops, when I said "dropping the class, which wont' benefit me in the long run." i meant 'dropping' it wont' benefit me. Taking the class DOES benefit me, otherwise I can't keep teaching.
oh yeh, and that peeing handstand??? That's a goal I can pass on! hahahah!!!
