  1. Here we go. I'm 165cm tall, so around 5ft 4in. I'm a girl and currently at 145lbs. (Uhm. Not too proud of that. ) I've been working out from 4pm to 5pm, (with cardio from 3:30pm to 5:30pm). My main goal is to lose fat. I love lifting though, so that's why my only cardio is going by bike to the gym and back. (Honestly, I use my bike to go everywhere.) I'd like to be slim and strong, but that can wait. At this point in time I just don't really like to look at myself, you know? :/ Whilst I was only focusing on my intuition ("Before the incident" ) I was eating low carb and got in between 1200 to 1400 calories per day. Typical day would have been: Breakfast: 2 eggs, onion and ham. 2 coffees with soy milk. Snack: 200g of cucumber. Lunch: Small salad. Around 100g of nuts. Dinner: chicken filet with veggies, salmon filet w veggies. whatever was around. If I didn't hit my 1200 calories until then, I'd have nuts to make up for it. Since working out, low carb really didn't work for me anymore. A typical day looks more like this now: Breakfast: 2 eggs, onion and ham. Coffee with soy milk. Lunch: Pasta (not too big of a portion, I usually measure out 100g before cooking) with spinach, sometimes a whole-wheat sandwich with salmon slices or ham. Dinner: either some fish or chicken. whatever is around. sometimes bread, if I don't feel full. With the carbs I really tend to feel bloated and unwell. I'm just having them to prevent binges. :/ (Because that seems to be my jam. Great.) Also, I'm gaining weight. But I try to stay cool about it and just think it's water and/or muscles. But, yeah. Not feeling too good. Can you make something of this?
  2. Hey there. Yes, I'd like to lose fat. My BMR is 1400 calories, my TDEE was (without exercise) at 1680. Now it should go up to 2170 calories per day. I was having around 1400 calories. Shouldn't that be enough? I wasn't working out until that evening last week. I should maybe give some more slack to my carb intake, right? (To be honest, I thought carbs would only be necessary before working out, not right afterwards.) Thanks for your help.
  3. Hello folks I've been doing pretty well these past couple of weeks. I first wanted to fix my intake, then start working out again. You know, so I wouldn't have to face too many battles at once. My intake was going well, it wasn't a hassle for me anymore. But somehow I messed up my intake right after working out (legs, if you were wondering). Not sure what to do. The day after the same thing happened: All is well until right after working out. I literally crave carbs. So much so, that I went to the store, got pasta, prepared it and indulged. Like, a lot. Do you have any tipps or tricks that might help me? I'm a bit clueless. p.S.: do you think caloric restriction might be my issue here? I've been restricting a bit.. maybe a bit too harsh. p.p.S.: As you might have noticed, I already posted this question in a wrong forum. Sorry about that.

  5. Late to the party, but I'd join you in cologne, too.
  6. Well, that wasn't a first. I kinda dropped back into old habits. I wanted to lose weight, fast. So I chose to eat very few things for some time (roughly around 500 calories per day) and naturally: couldn't carry on working out. After some time, I woke up and asked myself what I was doing. I started eating again, yet didn't resume to working out. So here I am. 3 months of not working out, practically having lost all muscles and not being able to run for 2 minutes. I hate cardio. I hate hate hate it. But I got better at it, and now I've lost my progress. Well, I messed up. Yesterday I went to the gym for the first time since september. My legs hurt, my back hurts and my arms hurt. My walking lunges dropped to 15kg (3 x 10) My pully rows dropped to 25 kg (3 x 10) My back extensions have dropped to 10kg (3 x 12) My leg press has dropped to 160kg (3 x 6) My triceps extensions have dropped to 22kg (3 x 10) And my cardio is really non existent. I don't feel well, friends. I really don't. Especially my endurance really saddens me. I worked really hard on that. I was never a natural runner, but I loved the silence and being not reachable for an hour per day. So I got better at it, until I actually liked running. Shoot. Edit: *Choosing
  7. Hey mgage. Ich komme zwar nicht aus Nürnberg, aber ich hab gerade mal geschaut: die McFit Studios gibt es mittlerweile überall in Deutschland und sind eigentlich echt schön. Die haben normalerweise viel Geräte und Platz, sind auf dem neuesten Stand und haben 24/7 geöffnet. Noch dazu sind die McFit Studios ziemlich günstig (also die membership: 20€ pro Monat). Sprich: das wäre eine einfache Option für dich. Das hängt natürlich auch davon ab, wie lang du in Nürnberg sein willst. Ich glaube, man kann da nur 2 mal zur Probe trainieren, dann wollen die einen Jahresvertrag. Ich bin mir da aber nicht ganz sicher.
  8. First workout of this tiny battle log done. (This is making me weirdly cheerful ) Superset: Hypertension (12 reps) & Lunges (8reps each leg) 1.: no weight added & 20 kg 2.: 5kg & 20 kg 3./4.: 10kg & 20kg Squats: 1.: body weight, 12 reps 2.: empty bar, 6 reps 3./4.: bar+ 10 kg, 5 reps 5./6.: bar+ 20 kg, 5 reps 7./8.: bar+ 25 kg, 5 reps Kick backs 1.: 17.5 kg, 5 reps 2./3./4./5.: 20kg, 5 reps Plus 10 minutes cardio (walking, running, walking on an incline).
  9. Why hello there. My name is Jona, I'm 23 years old aaaand I've decided to start a log. Whilst it is my first time to start logging here, I'm not unfamiliar with accountability threads. In fact, I've had a few in the past couple of years. I've abandoned all of them. So here we go. New start. My goal is to get healthy in all aspects. Including, but not restricted to: working out regularly (from not working out getting back to my weight lifting and running routine), eating healthily and being happy.
