  1. Hi guys! I am looking for a workout plan that works well with a very busy schedule. Between a part time job, school, church, and family, I have very little time to myself. In the past I have only had success in staying healthy by exercising 5 to 6 days a week, but now that is pretty much impossible. I am aiming for three to four days a week, the days sometimes being consecutive and sometimes spaced out a bit. I am open to trying new things, but realistically they must be things that can be done at home with minimal equipment. I'll list the basics of what I'm looking for below! About Me Body: I have a body type that responds very well to change. I gain and lose weight relatively easily and have a quite a bit of muscle for a girl, so I tend to bulk up pretty easily. Habits: I am an emotional eater. I eat when I am bored, stressed, or upset, and sadly I am usually at least one of those at any given moment. I struggle with forming new habits, but am great at sticking to them after the first few weeks. For example, if I were to exercise every day for two weeks, I wouldn't be able to stop. Current Ability - My legs and abs are pretty strong, but my arms and lower back need a lot of help. I am a fast sprinter, but have very little endurance, so any running programs would have to involve gradually working up to long distances. My balance is about average, but I have very tight muscles that don't allow for much motion, so I would love to improve my flexibility. Equipment and Time ~I have a treadmill, elliptical, 5 lb dumbbells, mini trampoline, and enough open space for body-weight exercises available every day. When the snow melts in the spring, there are a lot of jogging/biking paths where I live that I can use. ~I can usually find a half hour to an hour of time three to four days a week, but it will vary each week. Goals 1. Track season starts in a week (I am a sprinter), so a week-long boot camp sort of thing would be awesome. 2. Spring Break is in about a month, so any plan that involves quick weight loss in the first few weeks is ideal 3. The first month can be as intense as necessary to achieve the first two goals, but after that I am looking for something sustainable in the long term. I realize that I sound pretty needy with all of these specifications, so sorry about that! If you have questions or suggestions, please let me know! Thanks in advance for your help!
  2. The last two weeks were a bit of a flop thanks to stress and grief. I'm going at it again tomorrow though!

  3. Thank you, that's really helpful! I will definitely go for more runs, as they always used to make me feel fantastic. I think I am also going to add in a few grains (quinoa and brown rice, mostly) to my diet just to make it a bit easier to get started, but I will eventually cut them out. If you have any favorite recipes, I would love to hear them, especially ones that are relatively simple and quick to make! Thanks again for the support!
  4. So I tried to join the last six week challenge without realizing how it all works, and started during the last ten days of the challenge, oops! This time is for real. so yippee! I have had a really rough few weeks. My Great Grandmother passed away last week and I have been extremely depressed and anxious about everything. Schoolwork is really piling up from all the time I have missed and I have no clue when I will get it all done, plus I work a ton in the next few weeks which doesn't help me time-wise. I tend to eat a lot when I get stressed or emotional, so I am having an extremely difficult time getting back on track. Your advice or personal success stories would really help me out! I really want to use this opportunity to become a better me and learn to be strong in times of crisis, and I will take all the help I can get. I just copied and pasted this from my last sad attempt, but more information can be found on my About Me page as well as other posts I've made. I will probably edit this slightly in the next few days since I'm having to much trouble getting back on track, but I'll see how my first few official days go. Main Quest: Feel fit, pretty, and confident in my own skin. Sub-Goals: 1. Eat 85% paleo (exceptions: 1. yogurt, 2. occasional cheat meals if necessary - no more than twice a week 3. brown rice and quinoa, at least until I can cut them out without my diet collapsing) 2. Research and find new recipes, articles, exercises, etc. each day to help me on my quest 3. Work out every day that I don’t have work (3-4 days a week) Life Quest Pass my two hardest classes with an awesome grade Fitness Side Quest: (Yes it's my first time, but I'm doing one anyway!) PR in each of my track events this season (PR = Personal Record) Motivation: I am tired of feeling lazy and fat and have been ready for a change for months. It’s time to reinvent myself for the sake of my future. I want to enjoy my youth and start following healthy habits that will last a lifetime!
  5. I'm still pretty sore from my workout yesterday. It's really a great feeling, I've missed it!

  6. The first few days are going great! I might have to cheat a little today because my friend is buying me coffee and I don't want to be rude and not accept it. Aside from that I am pretty well on track and am actually enjoying the paleo diet! Best of luck to all you other 6 week rebels!
  7. I had eggs this morning for breakfast and have felt a little ill ever since. This feeling usually comes when I eat plain eggs, but it only stays for an hour or so. I can't really tell if I'm developing an allergy to them or if it's just my body getting used to the new diet. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, any advice?
  8. I'll keep it short. Most of my stats (weight, BMI, measurements) are posted on my about me page Main Quest: Feel fit, pretty, and confident in my own skin. Sub-Goals: 1. Eat 85% paleo (exceptions: 1. yogurt, 2. occasional cheat days if necessary - no more than once a week) 2. Research and find new recipes, articles, exercises, etc. to help me on my quest 3. Work out every day that I don’t have work (3-4 days a week) Life Quest Pass my two hardest classes with an awesome grade Fitness Side Quest: (Yes it's my first time, but I'm doing one anyway!) PR in each of my track events this season (PR = Personal Record) Motivation: I am tired of feeling lazy and fat and have been ready for a change for months. It’s time to reinvent myself for the sake of my future. I want to enjoy my youth and start following healthy habits that will last a lifetime!
  9. Day two isn't going so hot, darn Valentine's Day candy... I'm just going to toss the rest and hop right back on the wagon tonight

  10. Hi rebels! I am so excited to be joining such a great cause! A bit about myself: I am a student in the USA, and have always wanted to be skinny and healthy, but have never quite found the time to actually work towards my goal. That all changed a few days ago when I found this website. For the first time in my life, I am fired up about healthy eating and living and not just looking for a quick fix. I can't wait to begin this journey with all of my fellow rebels! My main goal for the next three months or so is to drop down to a light, healthy weight and stay there, primarily to benefit my track season (but the confidence boost will be nice too!). Right now I weigh 131 lbs and am looking to drop to anywhere from 105 to 120 lbs, depending on which weight makes me feel healthiest and most confident. My main long term goal is to feel gorgeous and confident in my own skin 100% of the time, and most importantly to form healthy habits that will last a lifetime. If anyone out there is looking for a friend or sidekick for this journey, I'd be happy to join you. It would be wonderful to have someone to motivate and to be motivated by when times get tough. Wish me luck, as I wish luck to all of you out there looking to change your lives, and long live the rebellion!
  11. Awesome first day! This is the first time I can actually say that dieting felt easy, hopefully it will stay this way! Thanks Paleo!

  12. My new life starts tomorrow! Goodbye lazy, goodbye chubby, goodbye insecure, and HELLO HEALTHY!!!
