  1. Well, let's see. I am Indian, but my parents moved to Bangkok when I was like 3, so I grew up there. Then I moved to the US for grad school and stayed there for 10 years. However, I ran into some visa problems and had to move to India recently. Trying to figure out life here has been rather challenging. What's your story moving to the new country, if you don't mind?
  2. Thank you Mr_Wiles, I have just posted my challenge. I am hopeful that I can make a change this time.
  3. I am glad I am not alone in this. And just a week on this forum and I sense a change in my attitude. I hope you are doing well.
  4. Hi Chesire, Thanks for that link. I am using that set of exercises to do every other day as one of my goals.
  5. Hey, Thanks so much for checking in. Just trying to figure out a routine, and what works for me. I did go walking early in the morning for like 1 day, I discovered this sports complex that's not too far from my house, and they have a huge track. I found this YouTube channel for Yoga called "Yoga with Adrienne" which was awesome, so did some Yoga. I do want to incorporate the resistance training that @Chesire suggested. I also did some research on healthy eating, and threw out some of the snacks I had. So I guess, I just dipped my toes in a little bit this week. I have posted my goals in the first time challengers sub-forum and they are: My long term goal is to loose 20lbs by end of December: 1. Hit 10,000 steps every day. 2. Alternate between Yoga and Strength training everyday 2a. 3 rounds of: 20 bodyweight squats 10 Push-ups 15 second plank 30 Jumping jacks 10 walking lunges 2b: I am using the YouTube Channel "Yoga with Adrienne" for guidance. 3. Cut down on binge watching, Iimit to 1-2 episodes per day. Personal goal: I have just moved to a new country and don't know anyone. I am also working from home so sometimes days go by and I don't talk to anyone. I will try and have a conversation with a new person each week.
  6. Hello, I am new here and really looking forward to be a part of this community. I have been browsing through the forum, as well as had people respond to me and check up on me via Rebel Introductions. My long term goal is to loose 20lbs by end of December: 1. Hit 10,000 steps every day. 2. Alternate between Yoga and Strength training everyday 2a. 3 rounds of: 20 bodyweight squats 10 Push-ups 15 second plank 30 Jumping jacks 10 walking lunges 2b: I am using the YouTube Channel "Yoga with Adrienne" for guidance. 3.

  7. Hey, Thank you for that. Yes, I would like a link to your goals. It will give me an idea of how to begin. My problem is I have limited resources where I am. At the moment, I can go walking/running, and do Yoga at home. That's about it. But I do like the idea of a setting a personal goal along with the health ones.
  8. Hello everyone, I heard about NF through friend. I recently (not under ideal conditions) moved to a new country with a new job, and due to social distancing rules haven't made that many friends, gyms are closed as well. I am also working from home and realized that my life has become really stagnant. I am looking for some motivation and moral support to literally get off my butt. I have never been athletic, but I really want to make a change that will make me healthier and fitter. However, I am not really sure how to even start. Looking forward to being a part of this community.
