      30 Days No Choc or Doughnuts Challenge - They say the first few days are the hardest, THEY WERE NOT KIDDING! I actually had dreams these last 3 nights where I was eating chocolate and realised what I have done and woke up depressed. But then suddenly realised I didn't actually eat it, so thank god!

          Congrats on touching your toes and getting shiny new Full Circuit badge


            Congratulations on completing Full Circuit and the Touch Your Toes Challenge, BlackButler!
            Cheers for working cars and a return to regular CrossFit!

            Re: dreams of eating chocolate: You need to turn these into nightmares that will turn you off of wanting to eat the stuff. I offer you inspiration from my own youth:

            When I was in high school, it was well known that I ate a lot of chocolate. A really unhealthily large amount of the stuff. I got away with it because I was super skinny and also an elite runner--but my coach would always ask me, "Laura, imagine how much better of a runner you could be if you ate a healthy diet." Foolishly, I ignored him. But on with the story:

            During this time, I used to have a recurring dream that I would show up to school one day to discover my entire school was made out of chocolate. The walls were chocolate. The floors and ceilings were chocolate. The windows were chocolate. The lockers were chocolate. The desks were chocolate. Everything. All morning, I and all of the other students sat in our classrooms, nibbling on our desks. By lunch time, everyone--even me--had had more than our fill of chocolate and was ready for some real food. So we all eagerly headed off to the cafeteria. When we arrived, we discovered a problem: Our cafeteria was separated from the rest of the school by a hallway ~ 10 metres in length. And, unlike the rest of the hallways in our school, which were still passageways within chocolate shells, this hallway was solid chocolate. No one was getting through to the real food unless someone ate a tunnel through the chocolate hallway. Knowing my propensity for eating enormously large quantities of the stuff, guess who my schoolmates elected to do the job?

            Now: aren't you glad you don't need to tunnel your way through 10 metres of chocolate by eating the stuff and instead have ready access to all sorts of healthy and nutritious food you can eat instead?


              Happy badge day and congratulations on finishing TYT

                      Hey guys! Hope the training is going well

                      As you know I will be doing THE ARMOURY (Updated every Monday) for 7 1/2 weeks this involves the weapons used in Hero's Journey. But I will be doing 2 weapons a day and have categories them as followed under my weekly routine:

                      Mon - Thu [The Ranger] (Lasso & Bow)

                      Tue - Fri [The Dwarf] (Ribbon & Hammer)

                      Wed - Sat [The Knight] (Ring & Sword)

                      As I have been having difficulty with The Banded Muscle Ups in my failures log, I have now changed this to Hips to Bar (Updated every Friday).

                      I am no longer doing Love & Hate WODs on Tuesdays, I have now moved this to Thursdays and on every 5th week I will be doing a 5km Obstacle Workout

                      Finally on days that I am not able to go to CrossFit I am now doing a Home WOD which involves bodyweight training but in a CrossFit style (Thank you Kakarot for linking that to me).

                      Happy Training Everyone!

                                Not a problem BlackButler happy to finally be able to help someone. I'm actually having trouble ATM with training and decided to try and get back to waking up early to workout. I did this during remembrance weekend last year, and it was great, felt energy for the day and had time to lol with the family and do RBL stuff.
                                How's the no chocolate and Doughnuts going? I'm on my third day straight of no fizzy pop (Pepsi, cola, etc, but today I had some boost).
