  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
  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 difficul
  5. Thank you all so much for the love and support! You brought me to tears! I will keep your advice in mind over the next few weeks. Luckily I will be spending a lot of time with my family, so that should make everything a little bit easier. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful support group, and hope that I will eventually get to the point where I can be a source of comfort to others. Thanks again for everything guys!
  6. Hi guys, I don't really know how to put this cheerfully so I won't. My great grandmother died today, and I'm not sure how to deal with it. I have never experienced loss before, and I really just don't know what to make of it. Despite the 80 year age difference, we were pretty close, our whole family was close to her really. She was one of the sweetest ladies I've ever known, and though I miss her dearly, it is comforting to know that she is finally with her husband again in heaven. It feels selfish to try and focus on my health goals at a time like this, but I don't think she would have want
  7. I'm still pretty sore from my workout yesterday. It's really a great feeling, I've missed it!

  8. 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!
  9. 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?
  10. 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 tr
  11. 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

  12. 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
  13. Awesome first day! This is the first time I can actually say that dieting felt easy, hopefully it will stay this way! Thanks Paleo!

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