  2. Hi Nicolas, Welcome to the forums! Really encourage you to ask questions in the forums, there are people with awesome knowledge around who are only too helpful! Good luck with your goals. Jub

Sunday I went on a hike, not sure of distance, but was fairly flat. We stopped half way and did 40 mins of Yoga and 15 mins of Meditation which was cool. Pic of me as Im getting into position for some impromtu mediation below. Havent been to gym last few days, want to chill for a few days but will be back at it tomorrow morn.
  5. Wow, good on these guys. Chatted to them briefly in November at Melbourne Vegan Fest, they are true troopers!
  6. What is his goal at this point??? Perhaps take his measurements, and try an focus on that instead?
  7. Possible suggestion, the "About the Forums" and "Support" catergories are rarely posted in, perhaps these 2 could be combined in a way to make less clutter around? jub
  8. Hey Helen, Would love to train for a ultramarathon one day! Good luck with the 12 week transformation, Im sure you will see and feel great results! Jub.

    Hey Emily! Welcome to the forums! As said above, it is possible. No reason you cant with a lil dedication Jub.
  14. Hey man, Welcome to the forums. What made you choose Bangkok? I much prefer CM personally! Perhaps you could start a journal? Would be cool to see one from someone in Thailand Jub
  15. Hey Mallorie! Welcome to the forums. Hopefully people can help out with advice for your hip! Jub.
  16. Keep up the good work man, sushi is a huge winner for me too atm!
  17. No worries! All good in this hood mate, crazy busy, seems to be something happening everyday then when there isn't I just wanna chillax -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As above, everything has been hectic! Two weeks later I have finally got a bed and bedding, few nights I spent on the floor cause I'm stubborn Last 5 days (excluding today which is rest day (although did bike home from Ikea with Sheets, Duvet and pillows which would have looked ridiculous)!). Saturday: Hike out at Bowen Island (only 8km, but walking around rest of island added up) Sunday: Beach Volleyball Monday: Gym Incline Press - 75x8, 105x10,105x10, 105x10 Leg Press: 200x8, 280x10, 300x10, 300x10 Lat Raises: 90x10 110x10, 110x10, 110x10 Shrugs: 90x25, 90x25, 9x25, 90x25 Tuesday: Rugby Training, 1st one in over 7 years! Pretty much was 90 minutes of touch, but my legs are still feeling it!) Wednesday: Pitch and Putt Golf, think its the 2nd time Ive played this year. So not a lot of gym happening, but Ive decided thats cool cause apparently the winter here means lots more indoor time so I shall make the most of it! Couple photos: 1st: From the top of Grouse Mountain looking over back towards Vancouver. 2nd: A cool fallen tree trunk fallen in a lake at Bowen Island.
  18. The one thing that annoys me a lil bit is the large amount of stickies/announcements on the forum. Putting all the info into a couple threads would be ideal I think. Health & Nutrition is niggly! Something that could be done is a readers digest, the top 3 threads of each month could be put into a post with links to them, or something along those lines. Would be happy to help out with both! Jub. edit: also, has there been a massive surge in traffic last couple weeks? My Journal thread has had 100~ views/day almost that last couple weeks, up until then it was less than 25/day???
  19. Pics from Saturday Hike The Hope Slide Near the start of the walk this bridge Im a real person!

Went as apart of a group.
