  • I somehow got roped into doing bodyrock ( is the site). I'm doing the 30 day challenge they did in Feb. While, I don't know about doing every single day of the challenge if you're a beginner, I do have to say that I'm surprised at how effective it has been. And, all I have is a pair of 5lbs dumbbells and a jump rope (which you don't even need for this). There are modifications for everything they do.

    Yeah, that probably sounded like an ad, but I'm just saying there are alternatives. I hate gyms. I do my strength training at home with almost no equipment. You don't have to join a gym, you just have to get creative. :-)

          • Very interesting. I've never been one to drink more than a glass or two of water (in addition to the coffee or tea I drink during the day), unless I'm really thirsty. If I drank the so called recommended 8 glasses a day, I'd never leave the bathroom.

              Going to have to +1 this. It's no better in Tulsa either. But hey, it's Spring Break, of course the weather is sh*t in Oklahoma!

              Glad to see a couple fellow Okies here.

              • Left knee hurts. Was practicing some one legged squats after TRX class last night and.....ow.


                • GOTD: Something's wrong with my tonsils, and isn't going away, so I have to go to the doctor, who will probably put me on antibiotics. Blahhhh!!! My body is working now, and they are going to screw it all up.

                    Chop up cauliflower; put in roasting pan; drizzle generously with mayo (homemade is best); sprinkle a little seasoning salt; cover with foil and bake in hot oven (425) for about 30 minutes; take off foil and stir; bake uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes longer ~ or until your desired tenderness.

                    BEST CAULIFLOWER EVER!
                    It makes me sad that people are trying hard to do the right thing but failing because they have the wrong information.
                    Without question, bacon is the most interesting meat in the world, and if it were capable of original thought, we wouldn't even be having an election this November in America. We would simply appoint bacon as our forever leader and live dutifully under its rule.

Got friends who are asking me "How many can you do?" and I have to answer "None..." ::shakes head:: Oh well, as with everything else, it'll take work.

Like add theory is in bottled water they add sodium to make you drink more of their shitty bottled water. When I drink tap water it disappears...
