  • Can I jump in late? Looking for a new challenge to help me get back into routine and drop a few kgs
  • Morning training session. My friend broke her plank record by nearly a minute and did 7:15. I didn’t even get to 1:30 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Afternoon at me friend’s house involved cake of two kinds but otherwise I didn’t eat too much so even though I didn’t log, I didn’t do too badly. Need to get my routines back in place…
  • I intend to continue as a member of this group so happy to see it continue but currently I’m not getting my current commitments filled properly so can’t sign up for any others. That May change in the future, but I don’t have a time machine to check 🤪🤪🤪 Today’s positive was that even though I considered skipping it, I went…
  • I’m so off track with logging these days but I know that certain routines are not in place in my life so I need to get back to them. Feeling very frustrated by all the things in my life that are being cancelled due to the next wave of COVID that is hitting a lot closer to home than previous waves. I’m being lazy with my…
  • Good luck on the new adventures Rick!!! Today I did yoga (for Apple watch badge) because Jiu Jitsu is cancelled due to another batch of Covid cases in the gym. My backup jiu jitsu plan for the week is also unavailable so I'll be doing more yoga etc. Luckily we still have kids classes so I get some mat time. South Africa is…
  • Crazy day for me. On my way to my beachfront run, my only assistant at work let me know she was feeling feverish so I needed to make another plan as certain tasks cannot be done alone (you can't pen two seals at once and if you do one before the other they will bite you and you can't station the seals while letting the…
  • Saturday mornings mean all the jiu jitsu plus I walk there and back so exercise was good. I ate reasonably well but was lazy to track so not sure on the calories.
  • Umm, I can't remember if I commented. I didn't log food because we went to a friend for supper. Had loads of fun playing Unstable Unicorns. Exercise was walking around to the shops to meet friends for morning coffee.
  • Walked to the shops and coffee with friends but got lazy and didn’t log. Supper and game evening with friends and went over on calories on the amazing food. On Saturday morning I got a warning from the increased number on the scale which is higher than I like to see by a couple of kgs so hoping it will motivate me to focus…
  • I used some of my exercise calories today which I normally don’t do but for the first time in a long while, I completed two Jiu Jitsu classes and did a tough day at work (we did a thorough clean of the otter house which meant moving everything and scrubbing all the floors, walls, rocks etc and then putting it all back). I…
  • Over on calories today but not too much and reasonable choices. Otherwise a good day. Went running earlier than planned because it was such a beautiful morning. Haven’t done a pre sunrise run in a long time and it’s such an amazing experience. Very constructive day at work! Here’s a cute picture of some of my vicious…
  • Morning training session and then a shopping and admin day with theology course in the evening. I closed my rings and got 10000 steps but didn’t log as I indulged in treats for lunch. My weakness at the moment is shopping. I’m better on days when I don’t buy anything as there are no treats kept in the house. Well,…
  • Thanks, but this happened 5 years ago. I was cautious and recovered well. I also learnt to fall properly after that to prevent future recurrences as my concussions came from martial arts throws.
  • Great day even though I skipped my morning gym session. I am finding that after COVID my stamina can’t handle work, Jiu Jitsu and gym yet. I still got exercise in (without even counting my busy work day which included scrubbing the terrapin enclosures) because of kids and adults Jiu Jitsu classes! Good food choices which…
  • Good day which started with beachfront run then work. Ate reasonably, all logged and well under.
  • Pass day 3 due to the pizza at my friend’s house. We had a few girls get together to watch fight night (one of our team was fighting). I didn’t even log out because I knew I was over. I did get good exercise in with walking to and from morning training which involved coaching kids and some good take down drills before a…
  • These days, which include Pre COVID, my trips are usually to compete in a Jiu Jitsu competition so I need to make weight and keep active which means I stick with my normal lifestyle of choosing the healthiest option the majority of the time. It’s even easier when I travel with the team and we all need to make weight, so…
  • Saw this on my Instagram today and thought I’d share.
  • Logging in early tonight as I want to put my phone away and read. I tend to get lost in the mindless scrolling these days. I am skipping Jiu Jitsu for the second day in a row 😱😱😱 but I know I need the rest. First week back at work since I had COVID and we have only half of our team (which is half of the usual staff…
  • Why does it always turn my pictures 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
  • I woke up sore and tired so decided to skip gym but then it was such a beautiful day that I went for a sunrise beachfront run. Then a crazy morning at work and off to coach kids. I made the decision that I just didn’t have enough energy for Jiu Jitsu so went home to relax a bit and eat (I hadn’t been able to eat during the…
  • @mshawski https://yogaforbjj.livegymnow.com/optinu9b8p9of?grsf=yy3b4l There is the link. It should give you one month free. You do need to sign up with the website but as long as you cancel before the month is over, you won’t be charged. Anyone else is welcome to use the link for their own free trial.
  • For me part of the appeal of yoga is working towards mastering some of the challenging poses. My current aim is crow pose. The right teacher is also important. I’ve been to some that I really hated but I have one in person that I really enjoy and my online yoga for Jiu Jitsu teachers are amazing. (I can give you a month…
  • Morning training session with friends. I suspect my shoulders are going to object tomorrow, plus evening Jiu Jitsu class and work covered my exercise for today. Food was good as I stuck to the plan although I was way under budget as I chose not to have the yogurt and berries snack I planned for after evening training. Hmm,…
  • Busy day but good to be back at work. I missed all the animals but they are doing well. Also good to catch up with my friends (we work in teams at the moment and I’m lucky to work with the nice people). Fitted in a morning gym session as well as coaching the younglings and attending adult Jiu Jitsu. Plus of course the…
  • Morning run. First time I did trail run since COVID. It felt tough during and I walked often but did the 5km under 40 minutes so it wasn’t that slow for me. I decided not to log food as it was my last day of holiday (even though COVID took most of the fun out of my holiday) but then changed my mind and logged what I had…
  • I got my exercise in on my rest day with a morning yoga session and coaching kids Jiu Jitsu (it was only 4 kids and 2 coaches so not a high energy one for me) but I got totally off track and didn’t log food so pass day 2 for me. I did take mom grocery shopping though, first time she has been out of the house since I gave…
  • Pass day for me. Got in the morning run and had no reaction to the rabies vaccine but I went over budget on the calories.
  • @Tuppence26 I’m also Southern Hemisphere but not in quite as different a time zone (South Africa) but I report on the date I am talking about regardless of when I’m logging it or when others may read it. So when I’m reporting for 3 June I look for the thread with that name and comment on how that day went.
  • I nearly skipped training again. I’m unfortunately in the routine of staying home in the evenings after quarantine and winter doesn’t help. However I was giving the teenagers a lift so I couldn’t skip without a valid reason and being lazy isn’t valid. After I got ready she had to cancel due to school work but by then it…
