    happy birthday Ashleigh!!!
    Hey Tim, food trackers are pretty cool.
    Depending on what your goals are I find the site to be pretty helpful. Being able to post pics of your food and keeping track of my eating times really helps keep me in check.

  • Adam M

    Yeah, HB.
    Interesting to note that Brad S has the same outfit.

  • brad s

    happy birthday, ashleigh.
    adam m must have spotted me in that eric prydz video.

    Who would be down for this one weekend?!
    I wasn´t there when this was done but everyone told me that it was amazing.
    If we get 15+ it should be great.

  • Emerson

    Ari, sounds like “fun” I’d be intersted in trying it. How do we sign up?

  • Ari Karason
    I think everyone who is serious about physical training should check this out.
    Do it under the name of the blackbox and unite the box a little more.

    boy Rickke you have come a long way.
    good for you.

    Happy birthday, Ashleigh!
    I made up the rowing WOD, though I think I missed every WOD this cycle.
    500m row, 48# thrusters x 7. 5 rounds, 23:05. I need to practice rowing.
    And I like LoseIt for my calorie tracking needs, but it’s an iPod app so not for everybody. Pretty simple to use and if anyone else is utilizing it, let me know and we can link up via their social function thingy.
    Speaking of food, two cheats tonight: falafel and grape leaves. Other than that, still doing well at this paleo madness!
