Melkor "Hey, crow away - we're all due a little brag time now and then. ( Which reminds me, I should change out the runner recruitment drive with something new, so if anyone want to have a brag thread up top, make one ;) )"
So here we go.
Since starting weight lifting vs doing cardio all the time - all though I've gained weight due to poor eating and stress and stuff I've managed to drop back from a size 14 to a 12 and the 12s are getting baggier every day.
So what is your personal achievement that you want to share!! Brag it up folks!!
Reason: Stickied for well-deserved pat on the back to everyone ;)
Squatting (with free weights) 100 Pounds!!
Finishing c25K in 9 weeks and doing 3 K in 30 mins. Never ran before starting the program and started it to prove to myself that I could do it and to prove to myself that no mater what others say I'm capable of more than I give myself credit for.
New sports bras - $10
Wearing skin tight workout capris because my leg fat is burning off - Priceless
yeah, i agree.
My first chin up. Now I can do 5. And working on 8 pull ups by the end of the summer.
Lost 4.6 pounds in 5 days :D soooo pleased xxx
Well done to everyone, keep going xxx
I have more energy, less cravings for unhealthy snacks (apart from chocolate >___>) and more confidence. :)
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE ELSE :)
I ran (and walked a little) 6.5km in 40 min!! It was my first time running that distance as well, I usually just stick to a safe 5km instead.
I would have been able to go a little faster but my poor dog was tiring out by the end of it so I had to slow down and walk the last 1km. I should leave him behind next time but he cries when I go for a run/walk with out him!
Edit: Urg!! I ran 6.5k not 8k turns out the GPS on my phone app was incorrect. Oh well, still a good effort
Eating well, exercising almost every day, and taking vitamins has made me kick my only vice: smoking. I have been almost 2 weeks smoke free and have not had one craving, not even when at a bar having a few drinks.
Wait, you dropped a "shoe" size? Is that possible? I lost 180 pounds and wear the same size shoes. lol
My NSVs are everyone I know has been telling me I've looked the best ever, and pretty much all my clothes from high school fit! (Some are even too big!!)
I ran 10 mins at 6mph. My personal best. Could only manage 3 mins a month back.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
