  1. I know I'm late to the convo but I also have a standing desk - it's actually a sit stand desk that just sits on a desk or table to hold my computer screens. When I want to stand I just pull the lever and raise it up. When I'm done or want to sit I just move it back down. It was portable enough that I could bring it home now that I'm working from home for a bit. I'm gradually improving the amount of time I can stand at my desk during the day. For the longest time I've sat during my full time job so this feels really good to move around more during the day.
  2. That's awesome!! And I can see it being necessary for sure. Thanks so much for the info!!
  3. 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 β…› teaspoon salt Zest of one lime 1 lb (500g) lean ground turkey 2 tablespoons taco seasoning 1 cup Salsa ΒΌ cup shredded cheddar cheese 1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped
  4. 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 πŸ™‚
  5. 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 πŸ˜‰ Well thanks so much! I'm trying out a new recipe today so I'll be sharing that asap πŸ™‚ progress!
  6. 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 ju
  7. 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 c
  8. 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
  9. 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 πŸ™‚ Pix
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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 πŸ™‚ 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
