  1. I do one of two things usually. I crash and burn as hard as I can. I suffer from depression and I've been suffering long enough to recognize when the day is lost so that when it is I go to the movies or stay home and binge watch tv. There a twenty percent chance this will inspire me to do something productive at the end of my day. Any war flick seems to work well for this, especially WW2 stuff. Plan B is diverting myself. When I'm working on my homework I usually have three or more projects at once and when I find one to hard and stressful I just bounce to another. I do this till they're all done and I do the same thing when I have other projects. If I don't feel like dealing with something I don't and work on something I do feel like dealing with and then I bounce back when I'm done. It's all about recognizing what your feeling and where your head is. If you can put things into perspective or distract and come at it from a different angle you'll probably do better. If my diet is sucking for a day I just focus harder on working out. I'm not giving up on my diet but I understand that somedays are harder than others and I focus on my progress. Hoped this help. Let me know what else I can help with.
  2. Hi Stages, I'm new here too and wanted to let you know I think you are going to do great. Do you have any short term goals to start with? Let me know if there is anything I can do to help? Best of luck! J<3
  3. My work has a free yoga class on Wednesdays and I have good support for the other work out days. Thank you for welcoming me.
  4. Who am I I'm an explorer through and through. Learning, growing, and discovering are encoded in my DNA. I have a number of interests that fall under multiple disciplines: Parkour, yoga, tai chi, and multiple martial arts styles. I'm like an assassin monk druid. A Drumonkin I guess. I have gone with explore class because It is where my heart truly is. I want to go hike the PCT, AT, explore Japan and China as well as the alps. Where I come from In high school I was the outsider, the one who saw but didn’t speak. I never had friends, only acquaintances. My only girlfriend was on the computer hundreds of miles away. My grades where a little below average and I was basically just waiting to get out of high school so I could go out into the world on my own. I moved out of my parent’s house and moved in with my grandparents. Shortly after I moved in my grandfather developed cancer and I took care of him with my grandmother. After 5 years of living and learning from him he passed away and in those 5 years I learned more than I ever had in high school. Just before he passed away my father came down with cancer. My father just passed away in March after suffering from it for a year. I’m done waiting for my life to change, I am going to be the change. I am done suffering from depression and grief. I’m overweight and out of shape. I know I am more than that but that’s what I see in the mirror every day and I don’t want to keep seeing that. I just really want to look in the mirror and say, “Damn I look good.” Why Why am I here? Because I want to look and feel sexy! I want to look back when I’m 30 and think, “The last five years have been awesome and I can’t wait to see what I do in the next five.” I am here to find friends and work with them to achieve their goals and mine. I am going to imagine my body as steel. Misshapen and ugly at first but as I work and train I will be striking and folding and quenching the steel till it becomes a blade. My mind and spirit has been tempered and tested and now it is time for body to go through the same struggles. Strategy I am currently enrolled in the academy and I am following the quests. I plan on posting on my progress weekly. My goals so far: I will strength train 2-3 times per week I will not drink soda anymore I will practice yoga 1-2 times per week I will practice one martial art once per week By the end of two months I will no longer eat bread or sugar. Final thoughts The last thing I want to say is if you need a friend here please don’t be afraid to say hi. We are all here for the same reason. I will be your shield brother if you will be mine. I will fight by your side and break down whatever walls, doors, or guards in our way. If you just want to chat GoT or something you're welcome too as well. I'm looking for friends right now.
  5. Hey shaolin, I love your goals. I want to be here to help whatever way I can. Good luck man.
  6. I know where you're coming from. I lived with my grandfather for 7 years while he was suffering from cancer and I just recently lost my father from cancer. I am new here and I want to be here for you. My goals are the same as yours and if there is anything I can do to help you achieve them let me know. We all need to work together here and I found your hero's story very touching.
