  1. I think I got confused from the hi-tech gadgety thing. I kind of already knew that, I just hadn't heard of it being expressed like that.
  2. First of all welcome iamnotjess, to the rebellion! We're all here to help you! let us know if you have questions about things or even stuff! That being said, Hey Basement Cat, how would one practically apply the knowledge gained from the above mentioned calculators, I was wondering/hoping if you could educate me, or refer me to an article that would. whatdya say?
  3. Boy, I kind of have a ton of phrases that get me through my days. some of them are quite long winded lol. and one is of my own design inspired by Calvin Coolidge so here's like the highlight reel: 1st is one of my own design " Perpetual Persistence Prevails Preeminently." "Strength and Honor" -Gladiator "If you think you can do a thing, or you can't do a thing, you're right." - Henry Ford and when worried about change and such I will always think of The Doctor “We all change, when you think about it. We’re all different people all through our lives. And that’s okay, that’s
  4. I shoot for 5 sets of 5 on my lifts, following the stronglifts style program. I'm making sure to get enough sleep on my training days so I'm no burning the candle at both ends. Whereabouts are you from? I'm training up for a Spartan run in August. Once like late June Rolls around, I'm going to be switching gear a little bit and getting myself better acquainted with the running aspect. Do you have a 6 week challenge going?
  5. Hey! Welcome to the Rebellion! I love your attitude about progress. to paraphrase Denzel Washington in The Equalizer " Progress not perfection". Welcome again!!!
  6. SmoothRobb, sometimes you got just put your hard hat back on and go back to work. I know I did! Keep on keepin on brother.
  7. MWF I'm lifting heavy things ( Bench, Squat, Deadlift, Clean and Press, and also pull ups) . Tuesday and Thursday I alternate weeks between distance running, and HIIT. I keep checking the Chicago thread, no one in the southwest burbs unfortunately.
  8. Hey all! I'm in the South West burbs. how's it going?
  9. Hey all. Yesterday was my first day back at the Gym since July of 2014. I am proud that I picked back up. Its going to be a long road back but I'm starting the journey again. I had a very stressful several months, and fell deep into a depression. I didn't care about exercising or being healthy anymore. I figured it didn't matter anyway. The events that transpired, really damaged me, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I can honestly say, I'm still not 100%, but I'm digging myself out of the rut. Some good old fashioned boot strapping if you will. I could really use a training partner if a
  10. Mistborn is an incredible read by one of my all time favorite authors. definitely check out everything else BRandon Sanderson has written... with the exception maybe of elantris... I think that is the one book I've ever started to read, and just couldn't finish it. I'm a little bit odd like that. I feel guilty if I start a book and get more than a few pages in and don't finish it. I almost feel like I'm betraying the Characters by putting their lives on permanent pause.
  11. I absolutely loved the Wheel of Time Series, I believe the only downfall to it ends up being what you call the fluff. The only thing I dislike about Robert Jordan's writing style is that he over-describes things. Its really awesome for author's to go into intricate detail about some things, but I think Mr. Jordan went a little overboard with that some times.
