  1. 24 hour gyms are a great idea! I did find a 24 hour fitness that I might try and sign up for next pay check. I haven't completely sorted out what I want my goals to be yet. I know I want to be working out consistently throughout the week. I'd also like to be eating 3 meals a day. Right now I survive on 1...sometimes 2. I signed up for a meal subscription service which starts on Monday so I'm hoping that will help too. Also, since you're from LA, know of any good hiking spots? I'd love some suggestions from a local! I live on the edge of Culver City and found the Culver City stairs which were
  2. Hi Friends! I'm not new to NerdFitness but it's honestly been awhile. I actually went back and checked my Epic Quests list and I surprisingly hit a few of my milestones. Anyways, I'm back because I'm not feeling my best. I need motivation and help getting fit again. I moved to LA a year ago and I've put on quite a bit of weight in that time. I blame it on all the amazing restaurants here...and postmates Also my lack of exercise. I use to run but started a new job with crazy hours that gives me an excuse not to work out. So, I hope to meet some of you all and get crackin' on my healt
  3. I'm doin' it! CAT running 5k here I come! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think practicing could help a lot. Maybe start out just going to nearby places. Just 5 minutes away. Say a grocery store, library, or post office? Something close. Just practice 5 minutes and extend the time and distance as you go? Not sure if that's any help. I probably wouldn't have my driver's license if my parents hadn't made me get one. Driving really freaked me out, especially driving on the freeway, but in my case it really did help to practice without anyone else in the car at first. And I started with driving to school every day which helped a lot.
  5. I'm bumping this because I really want to hang out, and this huge storm that is apparently coming has me all bored in the house. Hoping when the storm stops there will be ample get together time.
  6. Good luck today! I know what it's like to just want to curl up with books and kitties! That actually sounds really nice right now hmmm *ponders today's plan* Anyways, I hope that your adulting schedule goes well today and I hope you'll reward yourself nicely when you complete all your mandatory chores! I am in this exact same boat. I ran my first marathon and then just kind of gave up on working out. I'm now starting over on my running schedule. It's quite discouraging. Hope you power through and are able to get back to your old fitness level. I'm right there beside ya'!
  7. We are having "the storm of 2016" here...apparently. So I'm afraid to leave the house...don't want to die with all the rain and car crashes. I'm stuck in the house on my day off and it's not fun. I really wanted to start moving stuff into my new place but it's about a 2 hour drive to get there.
  8. I read the whole thing and it's because you are a great writer. Well done on the introduction! I guess that's a weird thing to compliment someone on so..er...Welcome!!! I love your nerdiness! (game of thrones, stranger things, HARRY POTTER, cats...) A job in nutrition sounds absolutely amazing. Seriously, if I could go back to school again (already been back to school once) I would choose that route. I hope you and your fiance finish out the year of "getting shit done" strong! I think you will find tons of motivation here and love it! Good luck with all your goals and
  9. Hey there! So my race is suppose to be tomorrow; however, we are having this crazy crazy storm at the moment and I'm driving about 2 hours to get to the race. So, whether or not I actually get to run it is a different story I didn't fully finish the program. I kind of cheated and started half way through it and completed a couple weeks or so. I LOVE zombies run! I haven't done that in awhile. Glad your partner found something they can enjoy too! You will have to keep me posted on your C25K progress. Are you signed up for a race yet?
  10. Feeling: You got it...it's raining. We are suppose to have this huge storm and this is the beginning of it. I will not let the rain ruin my schedule. I have lots to do. Sorry this battle log has been more about my mental health struggles and daily life and not more about my health and quests. Let's change that: I can not find a concert I want to go to, so I may not complete that quest by November. My run is in 2 days...the point the storm is suppose to hit the hardest...I hope it doesn't get cancelled. Veggies have been non existent, along
  11. Haven't been to this thread in awhile but I've felt myself wavering and thought it best to check in here. I am super resisting my old websites where I have a lot of really negative support. I keep trying to check in with myself and figure out what about those websites am I missing and how do I healthily fill that hole? I think it's easy to fall back into old ways. This right here, healthy support and loving myself...that is what is difficult. I'm so afraid I will fail at being healthy, and in fact I am at the moment, that I'd rather just full on fail than be sitting here between sick and healt
  12. Feeling: I just typed up a lovely post and it all deleted. So, bullet points: -I'm going to wing the 5k -Eating has been difficult -I've lost weight -My bed came in the mail -Today is my Friday -I have a 3 day weekend That is all. I'm so pissed I lost my original post.
  13. I came out 13 years ago today! I totally used this day as a push off point. Talk about nerd here but the way I came out to my parents was after dinner I gave them a book I think titled "Now that you know" and told them I was gay. It went over fairly well, though I'm not entirely sure how they reacted directly after because I promptly ran up to my room Anyways, yes, Happy National Coming Out Day...I wish everyone a supportive group of people surrounding them!
  14. Hope it's okay I participate here still, even though I kind of changed my challenge by just switching to my battle log. Anyways: 1. I love all beings. For real. Even slugs and spiders and lizards and toads... 2. I'm passionate. When I find something I love I throw my whole self into it. All my joy is fully directed towards whatever project or thing I'm working on. 3. I'm crafty and artsy though I rarely have time to work on projects. I have a ton of ideas floating around in this brain of mine
  15. Nutritional flashcards...I love this idea. I'm actually a flashcard enthusiast. I will make them whenever! When I got a new job there was a ton of info to learn and I secretly (I didn't want people to know how nerdy I was) made flashcards and practiced on my days off
