  1. That's awesome!! And I can see it being necessary for sure. Thanks so much for the info!!
  2. If you love food and you struggle with the idea of giving up all your favourite dishes this is the topic for you! I've been working hard to try out easy and delicious recipes that help you feel full, satisfied and still on track to your fitness goals! Today I want to share my newest discovery! Turkey Taco Bowls (Makes 4 Servings) 1 bag of microwave brown rice ⅛ teaspoon salt Zest of one lime 1 lb (500g) lean ground turkey 2 tablespoons taco seasoning 1 cup Salsa ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese 1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped 1 Taco shell Step 1 In a sauce pan spray with cooking spray and add ground turkey. Cook on medium heat, add taco seasoning. Cook for 10 minutes or until cooked thoroughly and mix in cheese. Step 2 Microwave brown rice according to instructions, in your serving bowls add the brown rice and mix lime zest and salt to each. Step 3 Assemble tacos bowls with ½ cup cooked ground turkey, ¼ cup salsa and chopped romaine lettuce, crumble up the taco shell and throw it on top. Nutritional Information (per serving): Calories: 460
  3. I am signed up for NF but only the base membership so I only knew about the facebook groups - thanks so much for letting me know about those details! I guess my concern is just the daily limit of replies here in the forums, do we get a bigger post limit as we're on here for a longer duration of time? I'd love to help boost traffic here if thats the way to go
  4. I have Discord but I haven't been able to find a NF one - just thought it would be a good option as most gamers would have it Well thanks so much! I'm trying out a new recipe today so I'll be sharing that asap progress!
  5. I wouldn't want to brag but I have been to Antarctica, if you've ever been curious about what it would be like I highly recommend adding it to your list. It's the most incredible place I've been as far as landscape aesthetic is concerned. As for Australia - there are so many adventures to be had! It really depends on what kind of adventures you value, if you like to immerse yourself in people and culture then some of the main cities would be your best bet (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane). For an adrenaline rush you can't go past the Gold Coast - sky diving, jet boating, jet skiing, bungy jumping, and a few theme parks with crazy rides. If you prefer cooler weather and a slower pace Tasmania is a must, cities are a bit smaller and you can make your way around the whole island in just over a week if you wanted to (I've done this road-trip style). If you want to see some of the most incredible landscapes in the country you can't go past Central and the top end (Northern Territory). Western Australia is really undervalued in my opinion, there is a lot to do and see but it's not as high up on the tourist destination list - stunning beaches and wine country among other things. It all depends on how much time you have, what time of year you're travelling and your budget for sure. I hope this gives you a little idea of where you'd like to go
  6. Have you considered swimming? Or riding a bike? It could help you to have a few other exercise options up your sleeve that wont make your injury worse but keep you moving. Slow and steady wins the race - it all adds up. You'll do loads better walking for 20minutes every day for 2 weeks that exercising full out for 1 hours once a week. We're building life long habits that will keep you in shape for the rest of your life. You've got this! Kids can be real jerks. But you know what? They fear change. They know you as you are and they fear that you making changes - even good, healthy changes - will change their lives by association. They're too young to know how it feels to be spoken about like that - boy's brains don't fully develop until they are 21 so you have to take what they say with a grain of salt. They wont be winning any emotional intelligence awards. There will always be doubters, there to kick you when you're feeling low. Sometimes its friends and family telling you not to go after that goal - they don't want you to hurt or struggle. That's why you have to smile, thank them for caring and carry on with your plans anyway. Their opinion is really none of your business, what you want and what you believe is all that matters. No one will want this more than you and you have to be the one to keep going. Looks like I ranted on a little there too. Don't give up, you have it in you to crush this and you are worth the effort it will take to get there.
  7. Hey Sebastian awesome work getting into running thats amazing! It's one of those things I would love to do but haven't managed to do it well... yet! As I progress with Rangers training I'm sure I'll be able to give it another go. I look forward to hearing more about your progress and hitting your 10k race goal! Pix
  8. I've always wanted to go to Japan! I do hear the general diet of the Japanese is a good way to get healthy, it's awesome that you're working on your health and changing things up! Walking your dogs is a great way to find a healthy routine too, great work! Look forward to seeing more updates as things progress Pix
  9. I recently watched a documentary all about this guy who had the same family history as you. He spoke to all kinds of experts and found he could turn things around with diet alone. It's scary to think our western way of eating is actually causing so many problems. It's really cool that you're inspired by your dad and that you're planning to turn things around. I look forward to seeing more of your updates - and maybe some Jedi journals too! Pix
  10. It's great that you know what you need to cut out of your diet to get on track. One key tip that my health coach gave me was to make sure you are adding more things into your diet too - don't only remove stuff but replace it so you don't feel the loss. I recently discovered Turkey Taco Bowls - it's basically a salad made up of all the ingredients you put into a Taco, just less corn-chipness. It's low calorie and leaner but super tasty and flavorsome. I'm looking forward to seeing more updates from you! Pix
  11. Well hey there! I'm brand new too, although I have been a member before so I know this is the best place to connect with like-minded fitness nerds Sorry to hear about your divorce, sounds like you're doing the right things by taking care of yourself. It sure is tough times, can't wait to see more of your progress and updates! Pix
  12. Hi Gwen! I can so relate to your story. I'm looking forward to hearing about your progress and how you turn things around! Pix
  13. Hello awesome nerds, thrilled to be here catching up on everyone's goals and progress. You're all so inspiring and fun to read! So I've decided to follow the start guide and I've put together my main quest and my first smart goals. I'm obsessed with watching the crossfit games and I love a mixture of HIIT and strength training so I fall into the Ranger category nicely. I'm 34 and I live in Melbourne Australia. We're currently in a second lockdown so what better time to build up the home gym and connect with other nerds wanting to get in shape! Main Quest To attend the Gala at my goal weight of 65kgs by improving my over all health and fitness through eating healthy and exercising. SMART Goals 1) To drop 2 dress sized before the end of 2020 2) Be able to run 5kms by the end of Jan 2021 3) Try 1 new recipe each week I'd love to meet more people interested in losing weight and getting fit. I'm thinking a weekly accountability chat would be super helpful, here or Discord. My other interests are Gravity Falls, Dragonvale, Pirates, Star Wars, Supernatural, Zombies, LOTR, and Harry Potter. I draw, I'm a writer and I have snail mail pen pals. Oh and I'm teaching myself to play the Ukulele during ISO. Looking forward to meeting you! Pix
