  1. And now I "fasted" for the full day, and binged with cake to the point that I am at excess calories. F me.
  2. Lost my uncle (death), my girlfriend (mutual breakup), and two cars (transmission and axle) all in the past two weeks and allowed myself to get off track. Now, it's time to reel it back in. My anger is back. I'm trying to stay positive, but I really need a workout or something to calm me down. A real issue. I'm super irritable and trying so hard to stay positive that anything negative in my environment makes me want to throw something out a window. This anger astounds me. Really wish I had a vehicle and/or my running shoes so I could go to the gym (currently at work).
  3. Yesterday was a purposeful rest day, and I had three strength training days in a row. I messed up at the final second, eating three boxes of pocky. After I had the first, I simply couldn't help myself. Since I was ashamed and ate it really quick, I believe it was the start of a binge. Lack of sleep is likely the cause. I donated blood today and was planning on working out. The Red Cross folks seemed to really emphasize that working out would be dangerous. So I'm forced to take a second rest day. Money has been rough. Idk why, but it seems that my food expenses have been bumped upward
  4. Can I use Ox King as a verb? To me, being the Ox King is to be the strongest physical offense and defense as possible. Might not be too smart or fast, but his power shots are something to watch for. His endurance and stamina seem to have no end. His personality is the definition of Bullish. Though he is slow, it is something he seems to be changing through sheer willpower. As such, my primary tools are cardio, strength training, and food tracking. I eat loads of protein, and try to watch carbs and fats (though I do have a wicked sweet tooth). I will define each of my strategies
  5. So, long story short, I like networking with those around me (physically) so a friend asked me to help her get a job. She does not live near me and I'm not sure how to expand my network to help her. I'm pretty much a LEO (LinkedIn Enterprise-something, basically I connect to thousands of people), and yet I still rarely communicate with people aside from sending birthday messages and saying "hello." I've tried communicating a few times, but it seems like I'm the only one on the site that uses messaging. I would like some tips on how to begin some active communication with other people in a
  6. I'm surprised no one has posted it here, but there's 18 or so of us nerds attending the Spartan Sprint in DC on September 10. Most of us went to Camp Nerd Fitness 2016, but all are invited. There's a team for it (search using "nerd") and they'll set us up to all have the same race time (though it seems like we were trying for the Sunday morning spot). The password is "CNF365". There's also a Facebook group. We'll be getting brunch afterwards.
  7. This month, I will be focused on re-building habits, building new ones, and enhancing positive personality traits by adapting the environment to suit me. My main objective will be to start connecting to the actual people around me. I do it somewhat, but I can and want to do more. "If you want to be more positive, surround yourself with positive people." One of my biggest challenges will be balancing my (enormous) school workload with my exercise routine. To defeat this challenge, I will need incredible discipline. Weeks begin on Mondays and end on Sundays. Push mysel
  8. I forgot about this thread. Yeah, this is still an issue and it's June (practically July). I can't seem to find a new goal as important as getting away from my old "disgusting" self, which is what previously drove me.
  9. Waaay late response, but w/e. What you are describing is the level of DOMS I tend to do. Almost always the result of a Monday (today is Friday, and I can still feel Monday's leg day). That's why I have a rotational plan.
  10. Every day now feels like it ends in failure. I keep having great intentions on Monday and by Wednesday, I'm messed up. My general goal is to hit the gym 5 days a week, with 4 times being my minimum. Lately, it's been hard to just go 1 time a week. I know I always feel best when I get done with a workout, but I just feel blah. Food has been okay, but yesterday I f'ed up. I ate pizza and brownies instead of my standard dinner (I mean, better than my old self, which would have eaten dinner too). Overall, I know it couldn't have been more than 1000 calories (haven't tracked it yet). My d
  11. It's mostly my fault. I had taken nearly a month off my standard training, thanks to vacation and just generally life stuff. It wasn't the trainer. Also, I had told him a while ago that I wanted him to push me. I have issues with explosive movements (as in, I struggle to do them; I'm a heavy and slow pusher), so I'm trying to work around it. Like I had said previously, it's not super common to be bad enough to need it. It's only once or month or so, and typically after a "lazy" week anyways. My DOMS has never been bad enough, I think, to leave bruises. (I had bruises, but m
  12. Hm. I just thought "Pain caused by inflammation, so take an anti-inflammatory." I hadn't thought about it being something that interferes. Thank you!
  13. NSAID - Non-steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drug DOMS - Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness Lately, my trainer has been pushing me a bit harder than he used to, and it's led to a few severe cases of DOMS. Generally, when the pain is bad enough to make me particularly uncomfortable or unable to work, I will take an Aleve or something (an NSAID). Generally, this is only once or twice a month, but two or three days in a row. I was reading something on WebMD about DOMS (I was seeing if there was something I could do to cut recovery time) and they said that NSAIDs can actually INCREASE recover
