Like Michael, I've got some powerlifting goals. While this spring I'll be aiming for maybe getting an American record for the bench press (women 60-64), eventually I'd like to nail the world record in all three lifts. This may require actively losing some weight to get into an easier weight class. So that will be the off-season goal.

LOVE cabbage rolls, but normally go for the traditional ground meat and rice mixture of my Eastern European ancestors. These mushroom ones sound fantastic.

I remember the first time I failed on a bench press. I lay there with the bar on my belly and laughed. Then panicked for a second. Then patiently waited for someone to come rescue me.

Here in California we a relatively unique CSA:Farm Fresh To You. The owners have partnered with organic farmers along the west coast to bring it's customers fresh, regionally grown organic foods without confining it to the output of one farm. They also give great options: get a box as frequently as you like (once a week, up to once a month). A box of only greens and fruits, etc. And you tell them what you don't want to get! It's like having a farmer's market come to your front door.

@DavidThomasTao Confession: I was in the very first test group for "New Math" back in 1960. We joke (but it's true) that I can discuss set theory but can't divide. So any app that does the math for me is fabulous!
I started Wendler when I was coming back to lifting after 2.5 years basically off because of injuries (SLAP repair on shoulder, then a hip replacement). The app kept me from pushing forward too fast... but let adapt things when I got to the point that I was increasing strength by 10-20# a week. Now it encourages me. I'm off the program now until January 1st. Looking for some great GPP encouragement. Which I know I'll find here.

Funny. I use apps for all of these functions, but not the ones you listed. I'm doing the Wendler 5/3/1 program, so I use that app. occasionally, although I track every workout using Easy Weights. Don't need someone to program and don't need videos to instruct me or a timer. Just a place to note down what I did (and did not do) each day. Easy Weights does that for me.I track my foods Lose It. Which ever one you choose, it pays to stick with it because they all accumulate your foods after a while. I care more about my macros than my calories, and find that LoseIt lets me follow that easily. For sleep, I use Azumio's SleepClock.
I've been lifting in minimal shoes for about 5 years now- barefoot where that is allowed. Started with some of the first Nike Frees, and have moved on to the Merrills and Adidas Skeletoes.
