  1. Fresh back from CampNF, I realize how cool it is to get together with my fellow NF nerds. We need to have a real life Chattanooga Meetup!
  2. So, my wife and I have been working the same dietician and the same counselor. We've both made great progress. Her program has been greatly enhanced by a weekly support group. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for us to attend the same group, and most other groups are tied to a specific "diet plan". Would anyone on Nerd Fitness be interested in getting together via Skype for a weight loss support group?
  3. As of Today, I am 2 weeks away from completing the President's Challenge/PALA+. The weeks run (for me) Wed-Tue and so I expect to be finished on Sept. 9th 2012. Although, participants have 8 weeks to complete the award so I could take until Sept 25th. I do not plan to! I've had 3 diet sodas since the challenge began, all because unsweetened tea was not available and I did not realize it until aftwer I had paid for a beverage. I'm now doing 1.5 miles on the treadmill at a pretty steep incline dailly. I'll be ready to go to the track and try 5k soon!

  5. shadowmeldfs, I'm in Chattanooga, TN home of the 7 bridges marathon. How about you?
  6. Oh, and today I'll add weight training to my gym routine. I intend to do that 3 days a week.
  7. Week 1 is gone, and quite successfully so! I started working on the President's Challenge/PALA+ about a week before this challenge began. As of yesterday, I am on track not only to complete that, but to exceede the requirements! I've gone from couch potato to doing 1.5 miles on the treadmill a day! Rather than working to increase speed or time on the treadmill, I am steadily increading the incline for my 1.5 miles! I've had one soda in the past week, and I didn't even finish it! I can honestly say good riddance! Since I'm consistantly doing 1.5 miles a day right now, practically half of a 5K, I've no doubt that I'll meet my goal of run/walking a 5k by the end of this challenge. My fiance and I are doing our pre-marital counseling and enjoying the heck out of it!
  8. Well, day 1 of the challenge was a success. I surprised myself and did 1.5 miles on the treadmill during the cardio portion of my trip to the gym. That is already half of a 5k -more or less-! Not bad for a 300+ lb couch potato. I had actually started working on the President's Challenge last week -before I discovered nerdfitness.com. Yesterday I completed my first full week towards earning that award.
  9. Kevin: I've already cut way back on the amount of soda that I drink. The stuff is expensive and neither my fiance nor I keep it in the house regularly. so eliminating it all together will probably be an easy goal. Thanks for being interested in my challenge goals.
  10. Hey! I saw another Jeff entering his first challenge and thought I'd say hello! Welcome to the challenge! You and I even have the same goal of removing soda from our diets.
  11. Fitness/Diet goals 1: Eliminate soda from my diet. 2: Complete the President's Challenge/PALA+ 3: Run/Walk 5k (not necessarily an organized "official" event) Life Goal: Complete 5 weeks of pre-marital counseling with my fiance
