  1. So I'm fairly new to free weight workouts, but I have what seems like an essential question. Which is better: more reps with lighter weight, or fewer reps with more weight?
  2. I. LOVE. CURRY. You can throw literally anything in there (aka leftovers from the fridge) I generally just get a bunch of veg that's cheapest at the moment and some protein like tofu or lentils or something and stir fry all that and then throw in some coconut milk and a bunch of spices and BAM curry. Make a big batch and eat it for a week over some yummy brown rice.
  3. Midterms are coming, meaning the stress is piling on and the urge to spend all my available free time curled up under blankets is very strong - but I'm still committed to a daily workout!

  4. I definitely relate to this. It's pretty much what led to me having an eating disorder. I looked in the mirror, and never like what I saw, and thought it would be better if I was smaller. But it was never small enough. I still suffer from this everyday. For years, I've only warn stuff like baggy hoodies and jeans to hide my body, because I didn't like it. It's something within yourself that you need to work through I guess. It's definitely not an easy mindset to break or recover from. All we can do is support each other, and realize that there is something within yourself that is working again
  5. My hands get really stiff after even like an hour of walking. I think maybe it's because I just leave them dangling down, so there's not much blood flow? Really idk
  6. I will admit that I am the least skilled yogi, least flexible person ever. But even I enjoy a short bit of yoga occasionally. Would definitely recommend when you want to move a bit, but not necessarily do a hard workout - so definitely good for sore days. Also, I would definitely agree with going for a walk. Just amble around the neighborhood to get some movement going.
  7. Hmm. Maybe you don't need to do it all at once? If you have the time, you could space it out so you only do a couple stretches at a time, and eventually do it all.
  8. Wow, that's great! I love the walking method of weight loss. I'm pretty much doing the same as you and just working to walk 10,000 steps every day. Plus it's a great way to just relax and unstress a bit
  9. As a college student, I pretty much have the same cooking utensils. So you got a pot, right? Make you a grain. Get some quinoa, get some wild rice, get some something idk. Cook that up. You got a fry pan. Sautee them veggies. Same as everyone else is saying, get some kind of fat, and throw stuff in there and go to town with whatever spices you got. Minimum is salt and pepper. Then get you a protein. Whatever you got. Cook that to satisfaction. BAM. A meal. I should write a cookbook. Also, stir fry is your friend. Anything can be a stir fry. Also sounds better than me telling my roommate I just
  10. About 4 days before, I had done maybe twenty lunges on each side? So the day the pain started, all the soreness was gone and I felt fine. I think the front (in this case left) foot was probably taking most of the weight. I hadn't felt any pain or anything the day I had done lunges before.
  11. Hey all, so this is a very recent development. I normally do some lunges as part of my workout, but suddenly when I bring my right knee to the ground, I feel a sharp pain in my right thigh. Only on the right side. It feels fine when I stretch it out or try to do anything else with it, but as soon as I try a lunge, the pain is back. Any thoughts?
  12. Just did the Beginner Bodyweight Workout for the first time, and holy shit I could only do 2 circuits before my body was begging for mercy

  13. Decided to restart my Walking to Mordor Quest (for like the third time.....) Still. I'm psyched to start this again.
