    Life slightly caught up to me, whoops!


    13.03.
    - Ironborn (D8) - sort of did it... I substituted some of the workouts to the best of my abilities, because my aching knee was dead set against planking
    - Iron Will (D10)
    - bouldering


    14.02.
    - Ironborn (D9)
    - Iron Will (D11)


    15.02.
    - Ironborn (D10)
    - Iron Will (D12)
    - DD


    16.02.
    - a walk around Innsbruck with PokemonGo


    17.02.
    - skiing in the morning
    - Ironborn (D11)
    - Iron Will (D13)
    - DD
    - bouldering/climbing (mostly practicing falling correctly from various heights during which I was screaming and my belayer was slightly facepalming )


    18.02.
    - Ironborn (D12)
    - Iron Will (D14)
    - some random bits and pieces of workouts throughout the day as I worked



    One of my resolutions for this year is to finally get to my goal weight and become stronger. Unfortunately, I am still battling with occasional binges (which are much, much better than they were last year!!) when I get sad or stressed and it's super easy for me to fall into the old "starve myself/eat everything in sight" routine, which I would also like to conquer this year. It just sucks to always be thinking about food and feeling bad about it.
    I did lose my fear of carbs though, as I didn't balloon up (may have even lost some weight - fingers crossed!); although I do plan on going predominantly low carb once more when I'm finally home. I'm currently with my boyfriend in a hotel sort of rented by the ski school he works for, and there's about 20 or so (not sure about the exact number) other people who also like to cook their food in the kitchen we all share, so I'm mostly making one pot meals for my boyfriend and myself. He really likes his carbs and him being pure muscle and working physically demanding jobs all year round means I always aim to make food that fits his needs. At home I have all of the freedom (and a dishwasher!) to cook separate meals for the both of us, but here I'm limited in what I can do without making other ski instructors unable to make their own food, which is something I avoid like the plague.
    Well, all in all, I should probably put the fork down and move some more!

    Hoooo boy, didn't update in a few days...


    10.02.
    - Ironborn (D4+D5)
    - Iron Will (D7)
    - a little bit of skiing in the morning, until my knee said I had had enough
    - bouldering in the afternoon - man, my arms and back felt the burn!

    11.02.
    - Ironborn (D6)
    - Iron Will (D8)

    12.02.
    - Ironborn (D7) - didn't do the lunge step ups, substituted them with a few more squats because now I find them manageable
    - Iron Will (D9)



    All in all, my knee is getting better quickly (must be because of the positive DareBee vibes! ) and I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Hope I'll soon be able to do HIIT and cardio because I'm now determined to get those last 10kg off! (After I finish eating the Snickers I bought... )

    Today was (and still is) devoid of Darebee workouts due to my boyfriend being off work, so we're just walking all around, playing Pokemon Go the entire day. Does this count as cardio...?

    Thank you for the healing vibes, guys! I can already feel the knee succumbing to the positivity and healing.

    Today was Ironborn (D3), which I modified a bit due to it being leg day - no squats or side lunges, since I've noticed that moving sideways hurts, as well as planking for some reason... But, doing raised bridges is OK, so I substituted the squats and side lunges with those.
    Also did Iron Will (D6), since normal lunges also don't hurt (however, I have substituted those with static lunges, since I find those to be more agreeable...).

    I did notice yesterday when I attempted to do a push up that my knee is protesting... So, another week of rest will be had. Hope it will heal soon!

    Other than that, today was Ironborn (D2), Iron Will (D5) and some light rehabilitation work on both of the knees (what's good for one is good for the other, right? ).

    nemalo Glad to hear its getting better Definitely give it one more week before you start again, as squats can flare it up again

    Feeling a bit better in regards to my knee - haven't had any weird pains no matter in which way I turned my leg, so I'm feeling rather optimistic! I hope that my down time was indeed only 2 weeks.

    In regards to the workout, I decided I'd start doing the Ironborn program again, of which I completed day 1 today; alongside which I did the Iron Will challenge (D4). I'll probably do something else a bit later as well.

    Thanks for the healing vibes BlackButler, those are appreciated!
    Yeah, The Smiter is quite nice! Although, I've been doing upper body workouts for a week and a half every day, so I'm wondering whether or not I will gain any strength or am I just being counterproductive with the "constant" load on the muscles.
