  1. Hello everyone! I am finally back to being able to update this thread. I have had an interesting few weeks! I came down with pneumonia a few weeks back, and since then have been battling with getting better and have not been able to follow my new diet or exercise plan. I am finally back to where I can go to school, but not exercise. I am back on my diet as of today, and am going to be focused again for the rest of this challenge!
  2. Well, another weigh in day! I'm down another 5 pounds today, for a total of 10 in two weeks! Exciting! Also, I'm down 6.25 inches in two weeks, mostly in my arms and waist. I've also cut a full minute off of my time for the bodyweight workout.
  3. Thank you so much cobalt! I'm doing really well! I haven't been getting to the gym as much as I'd like, but I'm gonna work on that. I'm supposed to weigh in tomorrow, so hopefully week 2 is gonna be good! Also, I've come to realize that, being a college student, it may not be feasible to go completely paleo. I may have to change that goal a little bit.
  4. Also, this is my first time doing the bodyweight workout. Last week, I made the decision to focus mainly on my diet and getting used to being back in school. My time today was 14.10.73. There's the time to beat for myself!!
  5. Wow. One week in, and already seeing great results! This week I lost 5 pounds as well as losing 3.5 inches! I have been following Paleo as much as possible. I had one or two slip ups, but I'm going to really focus on it this week and try to make sure I do better. On my way to workout!
  6. Hey everyone! So this past Monday, I started a 6 week challenge. One of my goals is to do the beginner's bodyweight routine 3 days of the week, and then do conditioning and interval training the other days. My question is this: On the days that I do the bodyweight routine, is that enough of a workout, or should I be doing more? I am a college student, and I walk most places around campus (on average I walk between 10,000-12,000 steps every day). Is that walking and bodyweight training enough for those days? Thanks!
  7. So 5 days into this, and it's already a struggle! lol Doing this as a college student adds an extra layer of difficulty. While I cook all my own food, it has definitely been a struggle not having those usual snacks to go to when I get home. I haven't really been working out much this week. I thought I would take a week and get used to the new diet before attempting that. Hopefully the weigh in on Monday will be a good one and I will be seeing some results! I already feel like I have more energy!!
  8. Hey everyone. So I've just started one of the 6-week challenges this past Monday, and have been pretty successful already since switching to a full pale diet (2.4 pounds lost in only 2 days!). However, I had one question that I seem to get conflicting opinions on when doing research, and wanted y'alls opinions. I have been using butter in my cooking since Monday. However, I've seen some sites say that butter should not be eaten at all, some sites say it is okay to eat butter, and some sites say to only use clarified butter. I'm a college student, on a somewhat tight budget, and butter is the cheapest fat source available to me. However, I am willing to switch if it really is a problem. What do you all think?
  9. It's really time I get serious about chaining my life. I've always been the type of person who keeps saying I'll start tomorrow, or I can always start next week. It's time to stop that. I'm tired of being the overweight kid in all of my friend groups. I'm tired of not being able to ride a roller coaster because I'm too big. It's time to change now, and I'm really going to need y'alls help doing it. Main Quest By the end of these 6 weeks, I'd really like to be on my way to losing the 100 or so pounds that I feel like I need to. I don't want to say a specific amount for 6 weeks, but I'd like to be at least down a pant size, hopefully more! Goals 1. I want to get my diet in line. I plan to switch to a pale diet, and hopefully be 100% pale by the end of these 6 weeks. 2. I want to do the beginner bodyweight workout 3 times per week. I also plan to be physically active at least 5 of the 7 days of the week. 3. I need to stop drinking so many diet sodas. I hope to be completely off of them by the end of these 6 weeks. Life Side Quest I really would like to start saving money for my future, and plan to open an investment account and start putting money into it regularly so that I can be well prepared by the time I retire. I really hope that this will be a life changing experience, and I'm excited to get started! I will post my measurement as soon as I get back to college and can take them.
  10. Hello everyone! I'm pretty new to this site, and had a few quick questions about working out. I have been checking out the Beginner Bodyweight Workout that Steve has posted on the site. My first question is this: I have always been told that doing the same workout causes muscles to become used to it, and won't be helpful as much. How long can I do this workout (3x a week) before this starts to happen, or can I just do this until I feel ready to move on to the Advanced Bodyweight Workout? My second question: What should I be doing on the days I'm not doing the bodyweight workouts? I have heard interval training, but really don't know what this entails or how long should do this? I'm 20 years old, and a college student, so I try to get to the gym as much as possible but usually only can spare about 30 minutes or so on the days I'm not doing bodyweight. Thanks so much guys! Looking forward to this journey!
