I've spent three years living in China, and speak pretty reasonable Chinese (+ my girlfriend is a translator). I love Macs, travel, and the internet, and I'm always trying to get in shape. Anything else you'd like to know? Just ask.

That sounds great too - if you want to put it as an answer, I'll +1 it.

Will update the question; as you can see I don't know much about the topic. Thanks!

comment Are video games like Wii Fit Plus actually any good for losing weight?
Thanks for that image, and the links. Quite inspirational - I guess my graph over a couple of weeks is OK then. Cheers!

comment What can I use to monitor my running workout?
Looks neat - does the pacer and heart rate monitor connect to your mobile device somehow, or does it all have to be connected to a computer to offload the data?

comment Are there any good resources for developing mental toughness?
I can't see the link between Pauls article and what you are saying on your blog - would you be able to clarify it for me? I don't quite see the link between spirituality and mental toughness - surely atheists could be just as mentally tough?

@Ivo Flipse - In fairness, elite was a further payment on top of buying the paid pro app. Their used to be a lite/free version with less features than the pro app - they made the pro app free in January as part of a promotion, and had so much success with it they left it that way.

I highly recommend it as well - they made the pro version free on the iPhone at least, so it's pretty hard to say no to. I find it really motivational to have all this information at my disposal.

I meant to add, congratulations for winning. You're doing really well to be motivated, and even better since you are a 12 year old. Good on you. Wish I was that motivated at your age!

Great answer, thanks for that. Interesting to see the results from her Polar - nice way to measure this actually. Maybe it's about time I got a heart rate monitor as well! Cheers.

comment Back to the gym: should I bulk or cut first?
Silly question, but what do cut and bulk mean?

Do you have some kind of mobile device like an iPhone or Android device?
