Clean Eating is new to me- but I absolutely loved how I felt immediately! However I suddenly got a possibly long-term house guest and I have allowed myself to be swayed by their eating habits- How do you kick your own butt back into Clean Eating and stay f...
I agree, planning ahead and prepping is key. If falling off track is a repeat offense, try keeping a small journal noting when you start to go off track. if you notice a theme like havn't been to the market in a week, or busy work days, or bad weather and l...

Hi everyone, This is a fun writing game I play at the poetry board I'm an administrator at. Haiku poems are three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables (in case anyone hasn't written them before). Start with the third line of the previous post and write the fina...

I'm not currently injured, but I still worked out when I was. I broke part of my back while skiing in early 2011 and was obviously told not to ski or do high-impact training. So I decided to start riding on the spin bike at my house, not only did it help my...

I love crunches because they're so easy to just bust out a set when you're watching TV, it's easy to get to 100 and feel accomplished, there's so many different types and they really do give results.

I've been nudged in the direction of changing up the exercises for our next round of challenges! Putting this to a vote. YES or NO, please. If there's any exercises you'd like left in, but would otherwise like the others changed, please make a note of it...
Planks all the way - I love basic foundational moves

I've just worked my way through Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers Of London and Moon Over Soho. Fantastic books both, good story line, well written and extremely entertaining! I'm on Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist - a complete change. Very dark.
I am reading The Paris Wife. Pretty good, super easy read.

Teams qualified from the Group stage to the Round of 16: Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen; Real Madrid and Galatasaray; PSG and Olympiacos; Bayern Munchen and Manchester City; Chelsea and Schalke 04; Arsenal and Dortmund/Napoli; Atletico Madrid...
I'm not sure but I think that's possible only if Napoli wins with more than three goals difference, otherwise if Dortmund wins, Napoli is out. See you tomorrow. :)

The one that helps me a lot is "make friends with pain and you will never be alone". Its almost like a mantra, I keep saying that when I start to feel uncomfortable.
Easy! "Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about." But also: "Just let go."

I've owned my wetsuit for almost 10 years now (and as I bought it as a skinny lil 15 year old, it's got significantly tighter in that time!) but only recently has it show major signs of wear and tear. In particular, I had a seam pop on the back by the shou...
Has anyone heard of IF (intermittent fasting)? I am going to use this way of living as one way to combat my withdrawal and general anxieties and depression.
*Hugs* back Eva! Yupp am trying to kick the caffeine for good. Went 1 month without once. I target without forever now. Sure I will let you know how it all transpires :)

Protein can help you shed those unwanted pounds -- and keep your belly full. But it's important to eat the right amount and the right kind of protein to get its health benefits. Share your go-to natural sources of protein with us.
Yogurt, peanuts, tofu in a stir fry or scramble, roasted salted edamame beans :)

I am a catapult lifter I would say, hips are important and bar contact allows for more power!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wg3cmXm5osU&feature=youtu.be Not the best representation of the catapult, but this was when I was just learning the technique. Nice man, definitely more "catapulty" than my snatch. I'm also still stuck at 90kg on my sna...

Some groups are really hard, like the one my country (Portugal) is in, some are balanced and a few are quite acessible for the theoretical stronger teams: Group A: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico, Cameroon Group B: Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia Group C: C...
Hello! Yeah, it was a good game despite us being 3rd.. Oh well, you might try reaching the Europa League final again.. Cavani played well for a few minutes but then he got a bit lost. I don't know if you agree with this, but my opinion is that he needs mor...

Welcome! Just created this tribe and also created 2 challenges that I completed today in training. Give them a shot, tell me how they were for you and post up your own challenges. Hopefully I will have some new ones posted on a regular basis. Regards!
What are thr names of the crossfit challenges? do they have reps and sets? Yes Gloria, all CrossFit workouts have reps and sets, they're normal but customized trainings sessions. I've created a workout where I log all my WOD's (Workouts of the Day), it...

I have knee problems, so I can't do squats or lunges
Sometimes knee pain is because the quads are week (unless you have already been diagnosed with something). Try reverse lunges instead of forward lunges, they put way less pressure on the knees and you may not feel pain doing it that way. You can also try st...

Today during Pilates Class I overstretched my Ab Muscle and I do this quite often. Does anyone have suggestions how to treat it and how do I avoid hurting them again.
The only formula for sprains and strains is time. Anything from 3-10 days depending on the grade. In terms of prevention you might maybe double check your technique with your Pilates teacher
