  1. Which of your original goals are you managing to stick to - if any? Have you experienced any major changes in mood, energy levels or sleep patterns since your original post?
  2. Hey Nancy - lol, How are things coming along? Making progress?
  3. Hello Endor, How are things coming along with the shoulders and the training? Any more injuries?
  4. Hi Shoobie, How things coming with your diet and exercise? Did you try the ketogenic diet?
  5. How things going with keto? I been on keto for about a year now.
  6. Have you found what you're looking for?
  7. Hey Dennis, How is your journey coming along? There are similarities in our stories: I was in a long term relationship and it fell apart and I turned to drinking and running (and then gave up the drinking and not running much now). I am however at the gym regularly (4-6 times a week since two weeks ago). Update us.
  8. Hi jdwooley14, How's the weight loss coming along? Have you looked into the ketogenic diet? Even better for weight loss because the higher fats keep one very satiated with few carb/sugar cravings (after the initial two to three weeks adaptation period).
  9. Hi Zachary, Did you manage to achieve your boss battles? What kinds of books did you mean? Fitness books or just kinda any old book?
  10. And? Have you continued even though others have given up?
  11. Hey Kizz, How things going with Intermittent Fasting? I'm doing it from time to time. Along with keto diet.
  12. Hey Pika, making any progress? My advice: take it slow. Slowly introduce new habits for a permanent lifestyle change.
  13. Welcome!!! How are things going now - 5 months later? Moving towards your goals? Which app do you use for tracking strength training?
  14. Hey NotMattDamon, I'm also a former drug user, drinker and smoker. I stopped about 2 years ago and took up regular exercise, lost some unhealthy weight and completed an Ironman in March. What really helped was the ketogenic diet. I noticed your problem is eating too much - even though you might be eating the right foods. Well with the keto diet, you're eating ,most of your calories as healthy fats, so it's very filling so overeating is a lot harder. You should try it.
  15. Hey Gredge, How's it going? Did you start keto? I've been keto on and off (mainly on) for bout a year. It helped tremendously when I was training for Ironman. What's this thing about "school"? Explain?
  16. The belly fat is a hard one to get rid of. It can also be associated with lower testosterone levels. An easy way to naturally raise your testosterone is by eating a lot of cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, etc.
  17. Great. How did it go with the interviews? How much studying are you doing everyday? I think I said before, try and focus just on this for now. Ge t your study hours up to two hours a day - like you originally planned. Once you can do two hours a day, then you can work on adding another activity to your day. Consistency wins the race.
  18. I thought it was a good place to meet people similar to me - men in their 30s and 40s who are aiming to get fit and healthy. I'm starting a blog o help guys our age get fit and healthy. Where do you hang out besides NF? I've only gotten fit over the last 2 years or so. Went from totally unfit to Ironman in that time. I love running, though I'm not doing much now.
  19. Hey LaconicBear, How are things going with the calisthenics? I hope you haven't burnt yourself out yet.
