  • @filmgal30 Thanks, although I’ve been feeling quite lazy recently! Will miss Slytherin too and am pretty sure I will post under the wrong house for the first week of term.
  • I’ve gotten my owl. I started a tradition last year to open myself up for resorting at the beginning of the year. Looks like I am heading back to Ravenclaw again. So funny because sorting quizzes never put me in Slytherin and rarely in Ravenclaw, but that’s where I keep ending up. Plus, my sister is supposed to be sending…
  • Happy New Year everyone! I have been slacking off during the holidays, only really doing the alphabet thing lately (soooo many burpees, planks, and push-ups). Hoping to get out for a walk on Tuesday and then some cardio housecleaning. But I really need to spend some time on the treadmill or stationary bike before the new…
  • Does it count if I have the first slice, but walk away from the second slice of cake? Edit: Never mind, walked away and then walked right back again. Bright side…I walked an extra 40 steps.
  • It went okay, I guess. They got easier to do each week and I feel like my form improved, even if they were still modified. Gradually increasing the number each week might have been better than keeping it fixed. Unfortunately, 3 weeks was kind of short and I didn’t maintain the habit. I still try to do them when I remember,…
  • I was doing pretty badly the first half of the week. I told myself I would lose that pesky 1 kg I put on in Term 36. Instead, I gained another 1 kg. Crossing my fingers that it is just temporary bloating, because I didn’t think I was eating that much over my daily calorie limit. Luckily The Sprint to Scotland came around…
  • Lunges done! ICY to do a plank for 17 seconds, or multiple of 17 (i.e. 17, 34, 51, 68, etc.) if that is too short.
  • Done ICY to 16 crunches.
  • I did! It was delicious. I didn’t have a chance to buy canned chili beans, but had some baked beans. I doubled the chili powder to compensate, which might have been too much since it was chipotle chili powder. But I would definitely make this again. Now, I need to find a healthy cornbread recipe to go with it. @bradkcrew…
  • I don’t have a regular source for recipes, so hopefully this will count. I’ve done yoghurt marinated chicken and know it can be applied to lamb as well. But I didn’t know you could do it with beef too. So I tried a yoghurt marinated chuck steak, with middle eastern type spices. It came out pretty tender and juicy. And…
  • @MWMstr17 Thanks! This looks awesome. I need to go to the market now, as we are low on fresh veg.
  • @MWMstr17 Thanks, I will check both out! I think I've seen some YouTube videos from ATK, but didn't realize it was a subscription service. Please do share the chili recipe. I love chili, but haven't had much success making it so far.
  • @bradkcrew Thanks for the tip! Just did 10 modified push-ups, 1 min straight arm plank, and another 10 modified push-ups. I struggle with elbow planks. There is something with my right elbow, where I can’t always put weight on it, even on a soft surface, like the bed. It doesn’t impact mobility, so I have been ignoring it.…
  • Done - I am still on modified push-ups but hoping to one day progress to a full one. Maybe I'll work on that for next term's unbreakable vow. ICY to finish something on your to do list.
  • I set my phone to random shuffle while I was mopping the house. But I think I kept missing the good songs when I went outside to rinse the mop. ICY to do 20 crunches.
  • This past week was a disappointment. I took a few days rest to avoid pain and then just kept forgetting and telling myself I would make it up the next day. Next month, no more procrastinating, even if I only manage to get in 1 minute. Mar 01 - 5.0 mins mixed planks (6 sets) Mar 02 - 3.0 mins mixed planks (2 sets) Mar 03 -…

  • I didn’t hit 60 mins last month, but I have worked up to 4-5 mins total on days that I do planks. So, I am going to set my goal at 80 mins for February. That will still give me 1-2 days a week for rest or to do other non-plank stuff.
