Week 9 L2D1 25 rounds (up from 24, dropped to girl-style pushups halfway through, figuring that doing SOMETHING was better than giving up). I can almost do a pullup. My pullup bar is only six and a half feet off the ground; if I reach up a few inches over my head, I can grab the pullup bar and do a ...

I... I couldn't do that. It's too embarassing. Usually I generally eat something from the following list. I'm not gonna log and track my diet because I don't think it's particularly a problem. Also, I eat the ethnic foods of my people (poor white southerners) and don't need any flack about it. Lunch...

hitting a wall with weight loss...

For some reason, I appear to be stuck right at 200. True, I've lost considerable fat and inches, and put on some muscle, but I'd like to lose more fat, please. The problem that the body adapts to the lower intake of calories, and burns LESS calories? Has my body figured out how to make itself do all...

Yeah. It's like running through a nice hot bowl of soup.

Triied running. Was feeling pretty defeated before I even started since my boatbuilding project isn't going according to plan. Running is mental more than it is physical I think. I couldn't run anymore, but I determed that I would at least WALK the rest of the 5k. I couldn't even do that; I lost a h...

When I do squats I go all the way down to the point that my knuckles hit the floor, and then I come all the way back up. Is this wrong?

I bought pushup grips, which have slowed down my pushups. I was about a minute slower this week. Spread across 5 rounds, that's 12 seconds slower on each round. That means my pushups are about 2/3 of a second slower using the pushup grips, but I think I get more out of the pushup with them. I'm cert...

Thanks, Aussiechick. ;) Yeah, I plan on keeping running. Simplefit is making me stronger and giving me muscles (ME of all people! With a chest!), and I think that the running is shrinking my belly. I don't know what is up with the 3 minute barrier. I think it's mental. I believe that my body has the...

I ran my first 5k

Well, "ran" is an awfully strong word. But I completed it. It is now my new benchmark. I am bailing on the couch-to-5k running plan, since I'm having trouble running for more than 2 or 3 minutes at a time. When I FIRST start off, I can manage 5 minutes at a stretch, but from then on, i just can't se...

W7 L2D3 39 body rows 26 pushups, 26 squats 8:34 I bought some pushup grips. I thought they would make it easier to do pushups. Turns out they make it more comfortable on the hands, but HARDER to do them. So that has slowed me down. On the upside, though, my body rows went faster, and I think the ele...

Dude, welcome! This is going to sound gayer than hell, but do you have pics? :) No, no, that's not what I mean. I"m 34, and six feet tall, and it just happens that 185 is what I want to weigh (at least, I think it's what I want to weigh right now... can 150 really be my ideal weight????) And, well, ...
