  1. Thanks! Its november 8th...im pretty excited about everything!
  2. My Nags!! Greetings and Salutations from OHIO!!! Holy cow...it's been toooo long...I miss everyone... I wanted to give an update on things going on with me...MASSIVE changes and massive struggles Let's start with fitness: I registered for my deadlift competition. It's there...hotel is booked everything. Couple weeks ago I pulled 405 off the rack at a 4" defecit. My trainer seems really happy with my progress and my work..this week I pulled 315 for 4 on my 10th set..it was a volume day..I feel SOOO AWESOME as far as health wise goes. I've start running again and pretty happy with how quickly I've progressed. My time isn't as good as it used to be but my distance is right back there...I ran 5.4 miles the other day... My struggle: My weight....damn it...I need to get down to 198 for my weight class. I'm at 214.1 this morning...I CAN NOT get below 210...lowest I've come is 212...so I think I'm going to have to cut a lot of weight the night before and possibly the day of the weigh in...luckily the weigh in is the day before the comp and I don't have to re-weigh...which means FOOD FEST Friday night...lift saturday morning LOL If anyone wants to come to Louisville, Ky come on down!! LOL...Jess you should really look into a competition. You could easily set a state record with your abilities!! I feel way stronger...we have a fun thing we're doing here at work to do 20 push ups every time the smokers go out to smoke...we did 120 the other day...I did a pull up unassistant with the horizontal handles yesterday...twice...that felt amazing. I am definitely leaner and can feel a difference..my size 36 pants are almost too big!! HOLY SHIT LOL...I was a size 48 with a stretch band(because no one wants to go up) when I started.. Soo... I got a new job!...Just kind of happened I sent out two resumes one night on a whim...place called me back and loved me..offered me the job that night. I will be a consultant at Sogeti now...I'm soo nervous LOL...I turn in my two weeks in about 2 hours...but the opportunity cannot be passed up. They offer 12k A YEAR for furthering my education...AND I got a 12% raise...plus a slew of other things...it's just awesome... How's everyone else doing? I need to catch up on threads! Can't go wrong with Stephen Colbert
  3. Hey Guys!! I guess I over estimated my capabilities to keep up with this lol... Work is SUPER busy...I'm the scrum master...kind of like a project manager a little...I make sure stuff gets done and am responsible things are moving along as expected. I'm also working on my way to becoming the team lead of the product team which will be cool... I interviewed for a different part time job yesterday...Right up your alley Alex...Guy wants to code/hack some robotics stuff! Fitness Update: I have slacked off at the gym a bit too much..and I can feel it..I'm still going 3 days a week but it's not enough..I don't feel strong or feel myself getting stronger... On my deadlifts...This week is 6 sets of 6 all at a 4" deficit 135 185 225 275 300 315 Travis seemed pretty impressed with that...I want to pull 455 at the meet...We have a little bit of time but not enough to really slack...so I need to get really get focused and start working more... My cardio is HORRIBLE...I ran a mile last night and felt like I was going to die...it's pretty hot...I prefer running around the 45-60 degree area and this 75-80 is killing me...great sweat but holy cow... I've decided i'm running a 10k on Thanksgiving Morning..I have to start training for it... I know I need to get caught up with everyone....I'm sorry..
  4. I'm running in the surf and turf 5k this weekend! Youre super close to me! Interested in a running.buddy? I cant find anyone lol
  5. I heard there was a Jess around here!?!?!
  6. Thanks for the Love all!! Joe you are too right!! LOL...I'll explain below... Wildross...I know they are kind of contradictory...but I do have some fat % to lose and why not start now to make sure I lose it...It's going to be difficult I have no doubt about that...especially with what I have to actually lose... UPDATE!! Tonight was training with Travis my personal trainer. We started Deficit Deadlifting on a 4" platform. NOT FUN. The regiment is 10 weeks with decreasing reps..so.. 10 of 10, 9 of 9, 8 of 8...etc Set - Weight 10 - 135 9 - 165 8 - 165 7 - 185 6 - 185 5 - 205 4 - 205 3 - 205 2 - 225 1 - 225 Came home ate dinner...Then went out for a short run..and by short I mean very short..LOL..I think I did a mile..walked a few minutes then ran back home. It SUCKED...I generally never run after deadlifting but I felt I needed to tonight just to get back into the habit of actually doing cardio since I've been out of it for so long... Friday will probably be back and shoulders, Saturday I have the Color Run...and I'll probably do legs after that...Sunday I don't know...arms and chest?? Glad to be back on NF and my NAG42 crew...Keeping me motivated and honest!!
  7. Get it Vella...Congrats on the new job!!

  9. I heard a Harps was around here!!!!!!!
  10. BEST PIC STRIP EVER!! + One Tousand Internetz!
  11. Main quest I have been away from Nerd Fitness for too long. I began as an adventurer and between their group and my NAG42 peeps. I managed to meet and then exceed my goal by 20lbs for a total lost of 100 from the start on February 2nd 2012. This challenge will be the first time I declare myself as a Strength Trainer. I have around 14 weeks to train for the Kentucky Muscle weight lifting competition where I will be competing in the deadlift competition. My goal is to read a pull of at least 425 with a wishful of pull 455. This would be at the 198 weight class. My motivation At this point my motivation is going to be competition. I have already met my weight loss goal. So I needed something else to push me beyond my comfort zone. This will do it. The goals 1. I have let myself slip a little on my diet and allowed myself to gain a little of the weight back. My lowest consistent weigh in was 214...loss of 100lbs from my start. I was 223 this morning...not bad for not really watching what I eat for 3 months..However, I feel I have put some muscle mass on as well...So the loss of 20lbs is going to be pretty difficult...so I'm starting now.. By the end of this challenge I will weight <=212lbs..That's only 11lbs in 6 weeks which is very manageable and put me in very good striking distance of reaching my weigh in on time. GradingA. <=212B. 212 <=214C. 214 <= 216F. 216 < 2. Increase my POWAH..My current 1RM is 365. I can do better than this...I wish to increase my max RM in 6 weeks to at least 395. My trainer has me on a 10x10,9x9...program for deadlifting. So I won't be doing 1RM for 10 weeks but I will use My FitNotes app to track my progress and it will tell me my theoretical 1RM. When I pulled 365 it said my max was 355...So it's close. 3. Have the Runs!In May I ran a 10k....Not the best time 1:09:48 or something like that...but still pretty happy with that...I have two runs coming up. One is not timed(Color Run) and one is timed(Surf N Turf 5k)...My goal is to complete the surf n turf in under 30 minutes...The ultimate goal would be under 28...but that's a far stretch for me.. I have ran a 5k in under 30 minutes before only once and it was really close(4 seconds to spare)...This one I want to do it better than that..Pass/Fail Finally want to give a major shout out to my NAG42 crew....I'm back guys!! I will update this with measurements on WednesdayHeight: 5.6 1/2Starting Weight: 223lbsDeadlift: 365lbsSquat: 275lbsBench Press: 195lbs(Max reps for 3...haven't tried max 1rm yet)
  12. I agree with this sentiment. We need to preserve these jewels because they are amazeballs!
  13. I'm going to tween harps today! need to get her back in too and then we're golden!
  14. Awesome I'm in Trenton(Between middletown and hamilton)....and am also a software developer... I've also been through a major weight loss journey as well...Good Luck! I'll sub your thread!
  15. Your page needs moar dance!
  16. oh yeah..I bought a toy too (Ignore the stupid look)
  17. My NAGS!! I got prodded by Jitters(Thanks Boss)...and decided to do a small update... First off...I am coming back next challenge..probably as a warrior because it fits more of my style now. I am training for the Kentucky Muscle extravaganza on November 8th. I will be doing the deadlift competition. I have a workout plan and everything...it's going to be epic. Last night I pulled 365 on a deadlift...Last week I hit a new max squat at 275(Trainer stopped me there probably could've hit something else)...and I'm at 185 on the bench press for reps(5). These are my starting numbers..My goal is to be able to pull 455 by the competition... Now for the bad...I hit 214lbs and have kind of slacked off on my weight watching and cardio....right now my morning weigh-in's fluctuate between 216-223...So I basically need to drop 20lbs...and I'm not running as much as I feel lazy..So I'm going to have to turn that around. I went out and ran 3.1 miles at a 10:55 pace after the workout and mowing the grass..so my legs were spent...but that's a far cry from my 9:46 for a 5k...I need to fix that! So because of all these reasons...I'm coming home!! I have missed the crew...Don't know if you could tell from the twitterverse or not LOL... On the work front things are going pretty awesome...I'm getting a raise and it should be significant(at least 10k)....Possibility of becoming team/product lead as well....Possibility of cutting the second job out all together or just moving down to Saturdays...either way would be AMAZING! I'm thinking a name change still... DeadliftingBeast KickingThePhats BeastMcCoy Tas(My WoW character nickname...don't judge me bro LOL) Taking votes or suggestions!! It's good to be home! IT WAS MEANT TO BE!!!
