Lifting out

Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0 mark'Passion fruit' by Paul Munhoven

Hauling myself out of a slump is tricky. If I try too hard, I rail against myself like I somehow want to see me fail. It’s ridiculous, and yet it’s true. I mentioned that I signed up to this 10 week challenge at my gym which is meant to be all full-on, and it can be, but given I’m a bit broken I’m taking it relatively easy. What it’s about for me is having an external goal to think about vs just rattling around inside my own head like some demented ferret.

Body project update

I haven’t written about my body project for ages. The main reason is that I’ve been pretty much in maintenance mode forever. I’ve been gymming and Pilatesing (is SO a word!) 5 times a week, not phoning it in, but also not challenging myself. And while I’d love to pretend maintenance mode keeps me in peak shape, it doesn’t of course. So I’m a bit softer, […]

So whose bicep IS that?

Here are the results of our bicep guessing game.  Only one person publicly got them all 100% right in the comments (yay you, Berkson)!  Well, technically, Thumper also got 100% right in the comments, but I know that he *actually* only got 7 right (because he said so). I assume he did the quiz, then accidentally transcribed the correct ANSWERS shown at the end into his comment.  Only one (Anonymous) person who did the quiz got them 100% right. […]

Whose bicep is that?

Some of the Ferns Workout Crew (#fwocrew) are participating in a little game of ‘whose bicep is that?’ (thanks @DommeFarenheit for the idea!). You’re most welcome to join in if you want *smile*! We have each submitted a bicep picture (on the right below) and I’ve put our twitter names on the left. Of course the object is to match them up (A-3 for example). It’s a fun bit of silliness that obviously works better if you know a little about us (I’m sure many of you will recognise the names of some very talented sex bloggers here if you want to do a bit of detective work: Tom Allen, […]

The Ferns Workout Crew (#fwocrew): an explanation

There’s recently been some confusion about what the Ferns Workout Crew (twitter hashtag #fwocrew) is and isn’t, and I started to explain on twitter, but it was all TOO HARD. So here it is. I started the ‘Ferns Workout Crew’ forever ago when I was struggling to stay motivated to go to the gym. I did a callout for folks who were willing to commit to workouts with me, […]

Holy fucking what? Crossfit

In the fine tradition of having ZERO femdom or sex content on a femdom sex blog, here’s another post with no femdom and no sex… I mentioned that I had gone to two weeks of ‘intro to crossfit’ classes. Those 6 sessions were about teaching the moves and proper form and getting used to the format. So there was talk, […]

A long overdue body project update

I haven’t talked about my body project since 13th January, so let me catch you up. I worked my arse off from April 2012 for some 18 months until August last year. I was posting pretty regular bicep shots as progress reports (you can see them in the sidebar over here), and you can see the overall results on the right there. […]

Workout crew – end of week update

At the beginning of the week, each of the Ferns workout crew members made a commitment to do a certain number of workouts for the week. Let’s see how see all went against our goals shall we? *puts on glasses, gets out evaluation sheets* Ferns – 3 DONE! Not my best work with rather light weights and low intensity, […]

Workout crew – into the new year!

I’m trying something new to kick the Ferns Workout Crew (#fwocrew) into the new year. I took a look at all of our public workout logs over the weekend and noticed a distinct lack of activity for most of us (me included) in the last few (erm… many?!) weeks. Completely understandable of course: I mean, holidays, Christmas, […]
