  1. Understandable. Whenever you need someone to talk to you can message me here if that is ok? Or if you have a better idea! Take it easy & good luck with recovery!
  2. That is great! You have done awesome so far. It's always nice to be able to see results in clothes fitting better, etc. Can't wait to see how you are doing in the future
  3. Thanks for all the extra advice and the yummy recipe! Everyone has been incredibly helpful and I REALLY appreciate it. Hope everyone is staying warm (or cold if that's your thing!) PS.. Jacksson, I have the same problems with wheat and it makes me really mean and grouchy too so I just avoid it altogether. I don't even 'cheat' with it anymore because it never ever ends well.
  4. My pants have been getting a little loose so I thought I would stop into the resale shop and see if the next size down would fit. I was going through the rack and they looked so tiny, I thought there was no way I could fit in to them. Turns out I did! I actually fit into 5/6 jeans today. I am feeling pretty awesome about it right now! Not looking forward to forking out more cash on pants already though lol
  5. That is a great accomplishment! I cook more now that I ever have and it is getting easier and easier. There have been a lot of duds but it's amazing when you find those keeper recipes that are healthy as well. I agree that onion fumes are evil. They surprisingly don't bother me as much anymore (I try to sneak them into everything nowadays). Cutting garlic though..that makes my eyes pour. How weird is that?! Keep up the good work. Hope you find a green veggie that you like. What about brussels sprouts? Mmm
  6. War Moose! I feel terrible. I haven't been online much. Everything was crazy to begin with and then I got hit with the flu or something for 2 weeks. Just now getting over it. Happy to chat if you are still interested
  7. I'm fairly new to using forums..and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to insert a quote here so here is my best try at responding: Softsoul: I do not smoke and currently I workout on the TRX 4x a week (using the tactical/force app). The workouts are around an hour. I had been working out with a personal trainer for the 2 months prior doing about 45 minutes of circuit training 2x a week plus biking/walking wherever I could fit it in. It's funny you mention circulation as I do actually have some issues there (neurocardiogenic syncope) and I actually get pretty sick & dizzy during
  8. Pack healthy snacks that don't need cooked/refrigerated. We try to scope out what is in the area ahead of time and only dine where they offer nutrition information (or low calorie menu options) so we can keep track of calories (using Myfitnesspal). Have a safe trip!
  9. Hiya War Moose. I am pretty new here but welcome back. I am kind of falling back into bad habits as well. Kind of frazzled after some diet tweaks and figuring out a home workout plan. It's left me a little unmotivated. I'm more than happy to help out with accountability. I could actually use the same if you are up for it.
  10. Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate the thorough example/explanation Waldo. It is exactly what I needed. I also appreciate the T-25 suggestion but have to use what I just purchased for now! I will keep it in mind though for after I get over the cost of the TRX.
  11. Hi there. I just started to workout at home after working with a personal trainer for 2 months. I thought I could do it but I have to say I'm really quite lost on what to do. I have the Rebel Fitness and Strength guides (I also have You Are Your Own Gym stuff but I really like Nerd Fitness guides better), a pair of dumbells (adjustable up to 52.5 pounds), and we just got a TRX today. We also have some other little things like balance balls and resistance bands. I have the motivation but I need direction. I am wondering how I can mix in the TRX with the Rebel guides or any other advice would be
  12. Welcome! I really like the workouts here on Nerd Fitness. I just started level/rank one from the Rebel Fitness Guide and so far so good ( I was planning on doing the beginner body weight posted above but broke down and bought the guides! ). There is also 'You Are Your Own Gym' which has a couple nice books and a really cool app. I think walking is a great idea too! Good luck reaching your goals!
  13. I was really glad to see this as I just ordered a set today. I have done a lot of reading the past few days before deciding. I couldn't seem to find any cons other than cost and concerns about some that are made with plastic parts. A few people felt they are unsafe (mainly the Reebok brand) or have actually had break and weights fall off. I went with the cheaper Bowflex pair (They go up to 52.5lbs) and I'm hoping for the best (as in..they don't end up really expensive paper weights!). Saving space was definitely one of the biggest pros! I can't say that I will ever be up to 52.5 lbs but
  14. This one is on repeat quite a bit these days! Sister Machine Gun - Burn and this one too The National - Don't Swallow the Cap
