  1. My first inspiration was Prince Dastan from Price of Persia. That opening scene where he is free running through the market... oh man. I knew some day I wanted to be able to move like that.
  2. I'm pretty sure there are rocks and scary forests along my journey, but so far I haven't had any major stumbles or set backs. Let's hope I can get a little further into my journey before that happens. I'm also starting late and hoping it's okay. I keep telling myself better late than never. Short, hairy and not-a-hobbit? Sounds dwarf-like then Good luck regardless! This is the level I am currently striving for. Slow and steady for sure. Minor improvements, baby steps otherwise I'll spoke myself.
  3. Can I still join the crew even though I'm a little late? I need someone to check in with me to make sure I'm not slipping and I'd be happy to encourage other people along too!
  4. Hi! Thank you both! And yes, the candy challenge is going to be a literal challenge
  5. So I joined this past Monday and was back and forth about joining this challenge. But I figure, what the hell! I'm doing it anyway! Might as well make it official! 1. Diet Eat less than 5 pieces of candy during the challenge. Eat at least 5 meals with vegetables per week. 2. Exercise NF's Beginners Strength Training- three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 3. Life Finish the prep for my walking tour of Boston.
  6. I hope so! I'm not familiar with the Boston area, but I'm going to find out! I'll let you know what I discover

  8. This is my attitude towards all of it... and I'm pretty sure that's the main thing that I need to change. The idea that fitness/eating healthy doesn't go with my life is wrong. It's the other way around. My life right now doesn't go with being healthy and active. PS the oral fixation struggle with food is #real. I definitely have an oral fixation If it's not food then my fingers or a pen cap. While this is a huuuge concern for me I don't have any helpful advice yet. But would love to see what other people say.
  9. So the last two days have not gone how I expected. When in life does it ever though? On Tuesday I got my period. No time to ease into a work out plan or anything. Wha-bam cramps, cravings, fatigue and overall ugh-ness. The eating has been fine, yay me for avoiding chocolate! This time of the month I am particularly susceptible to indulging in chocolaty goodness. There have been several occurrences when I had to battle temptation. I went out with friends on Tuesday night and they both ordered fries and hard milkshakes with their burgers. I chose to just go for a pulled pork sandwich and tap w
  10. Hi, I'm Amelia! My introduction post is over here. This is my battle log! This will record both food and work outs. For the food log, I'm going to log the food on my iPhone and upload the notes here. In the beginning it will be general food recordings to work on accountability and habit creation. My long term goals: Walk more (in the USA, car capital of my life) Do one real push up Do 10 real push ups Run a 5k Run a 10 k Learn parkour Figure out and take parkour courses/training. Take rock climbing classes Learn to like vegetables Stop drinking diet coke. 1. Food - 70 points per week El
  11. All three points from your day 3 are things I know I'm terrible at and will struggle with. But I like the way you described treating future me with respect aka not cheating on them with crappy food. It's a humorous (but true!) way to look at it. Good luck!
  12. I love your format here it looks like something I'm going to try myself! Also the boss secret moves are inspired. I've definitely fallen prey to the diet blow out assault before. I'll be keeping an eye on your progress.
  13. Hi! My name is Amelia and I found NF after realizing I needed to pay more attention to my health. I'm a big traveler and in the past I've let that get in the way of committing to a healthy lifestyle. If I'm only going to be in Morocco for a week then I want to try all the food/drink! Especially the super sugary mint tea or sweet cookies but I'm also a huge nerd and when I'm not traveling I'm generally in bed, surrounded by pillows making goo-goo eyes at whatever's currently on my computer screen. This past year I've been in London completing an MA. While a great academic achievement it
  14. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one worried about commitment @robbates when I saw the Paleo diet I also freaked out a little, but for the exact opposite reason. I don't eat a lot of meat and cutting out diary and grains (particularly rice and pasta) cuts out a lot of my staple foods. I've decided not to do a full Paleo diet right away, but ease into healthier choices. For example my first diet change is that I don't eat potatoes chips or french fries any more. Baby steps!
