  1. Hell yeeeeeeeaaaahhh!! Good on you for dusting yourself off and getting "back on the horse". We will be waiting on the Phoenix to rise. It sounds like you managed to figure things out as to how you will go forth. That's great. Leave the past in the past and focus on where you want to go now. Keep us posted.
  2. Something feels amiss...

  3. When it comes to Chicken I prefer grilled, and if not cooked properly chicken can dry out very easily which is terrible. Trust me. Here's a few recipes from Steve I'd have a look at: http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2014/05/12/how-to-make-the-easiest-chicken-ever/ http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011/02/21/a-decent-meal/ http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/04/08/how-to-cook-steves-go-to-healthy-meal/ http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2015/02/26/how-to-make-curry-stuffed-sweet-potatoes/
  4. Great list and very well outlined and thought out. I'm also learning Spanish, have you checked out Duolingo?
  5. Aesome list! I love it, such great items on there, my epic-still-to-be-written list compare very much to yours. Good on you for saving the environment Okay, I'm curious... How? And why? Pretty much me and my list!
  6. Fish, it's expensive... But why?

  7. That's what I was worried about... Hopefully Atlas Wearables will solve most of that concern...
  8. Thanks for the feedback SpecialSundae and cyndidee. Appreciate your input. The Fitbit sound even more appealing to me now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi all, I have for a very long time been interested in investing in a Fitbit. I am now ready to take the plunge and buy one. However, I would like to know how well it plays with bodyweight and weight training exercises, especially Nerd Fitness specific training? Is the stats accurate? How do you find the Fitbit app and other integrations? Would really appreciate some feedback.
  10. Nah I haven't. I'll go have a look and see.
  11. Hi Rebels, I know we've got this very awesome and very active forum, but I think it would be cool to have a dedicated #Slack channel as well for one to one group chats. Groups could be guild and interest oriented. What do you think? Yay? Nay?
  12. It's my first week on FitStar and must say I'm kinda loving the short intense workouts. Feeling the burn daily. I haven't used FitStar Yoga yet, but plan on doing so soon... Want to reach out and find other nerd FitStar users. What's your take on FitStar?
  13. Thanks so much for the share, I love sweet potato but never tried the fries-version. Definitely gonna go try this recipe when I get home
  14. Hahaha I used to do the same with Dutch for fun, to see all the similarities. You are 100% correct, padvark = road pig = some one driving like an idiot/ maniac. Most Afrikaans words can be directly translated and you could understand the word.
  15. Love your list of languages and your drive to learn them. One understands and have greater respect for a culture when one learns to communicate like them. Have you checked out this thread: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/53920-language-exchange-topic-find-a-buddy/ Best of luck with your epic quest. We're pretty close: I speak Afrikaans (considered the daughter of Dutch) and English I specialise in Digital Marketing, shout if you need any help, I don't mind giving advice/tips/pointers.
  16. Mind sharing a pic of your roller? It never even crossed my mind to make one myself. I am currently looking into getting my own. Right now using the gym's stock but would love to have my own for home use. Only discovered the foam roller about a month ago and it changed my life. Sore as hell, but afterwards I feel amazing. My legs hate it too. I can't bare the pain when doing ITB. Looks like some places discourage rolling the ITB...
  17. Hi Michaeliza Good on you for joining the Rebellion and introducing yourself. Welcome onboard the mothership, it's way better inside than the catalogues advertise. Love your ultimate goal and I take my hat off for anyone with the guts to take on the Spartan. Hopefully one day I'll have that same guts. Shout if you need any help or need to be guided to the right threads or forums for something. Also if you just need someone to push you forward when things get tough. Remember: The Rebellion doesn't care where you are (aka we don't judge) we care about where you are going (aka the best grou
  18. Hi Amalie, Welcome to the Rebellion. Wow I can't imagine going through what you are going through, but your optimism and drive is very inspirational. Good on you for you making the decision that you can be a better version of yourself. You've got your motivation and your goals and we are here to root you on. Pilates is great, I recently started doing Pilates and I can feel the difference it's making. Definitely recommend everyone to give Pilates a try once in their life. Keep posting your progress and allow us to root for you. And if you need any assistance or help, feel free to ask.
  19. Welcome TheDarkPassenger Also a newbie here. You are so in the right place you gonna scold yourself for not finding this place sooner. I did. You might feel overwhelmed with some of the Rebellion concepts here. If you do, don't run (unless you wanna run around the block for some fresh air). There's help forums/ threads and a lot of posts to guide you, but you can also just ask your question right here on this thread and one of us will point you in the right direction or help where we can. I actually regained faith in humanity thanks to the Rebellion because of their helpfulness. As a ta
  20. Tim Ferris is most definitely a little breathless. I got some amazing inspiration from him. If it wasn't for Tim and Steve I would probably still hate working out. I'm gradually going into slow carb and will focus on slow carb breakfast from next challenge and will only focus on that part of my diet, because I currently do not eat during the day. I only have dinner. Very unhealthy and it's starting to catch up on me. I'm a bit concerned about being sorer for longer when going pure slow-carb. You think that's a negative thing or a positive thing? Please will you explain the "Minimum Effect
  21. Feeling very down and moody today. Urgh, I want a bed and silence.

      ^^ Nice!

      Try a solo workout, maybe something new - I find that that helps me. :)

  22. How on earth is it that I only discover this gem of a thread NOW... What an amazing group. Newbie here, not trying to become the best version of myself (yet)... just a BETTER version. Following along and will try to raise my voice just a decibel or two above a whisper once in a while. ** Smiles and waves **
  23. Good work! Glad to see someone else on here taking a keen interest in 4HB. Big fan myself. You got me quite intrigued with the Armstrong Pull Ups - gonna save that for a future challenge. Keep pushing yourself and keep levelling up. Looking forward to the next update
  24. Good work on the gym! Really love your reminder sentence. That's beautifully Nerd in so many ways. What tea do you add to the water? Don't stress the calories, focus on the challenge. And your kicking ass there, so no worries. Go for the job, like you said, what's life without a few risks. None of us would be here if we didn't have some sort of risk taking in us. Lady Hawk said it perfectly. Got nothing to add, but this: Every Disney Princess can rock some sort of Blues... (Well not in the way you intended but who knows? )
  25. Don't beat yourself up about the Starbucks, if we had Starbucks in South Africa I would be in your shoes too. We do have Seattle Coffee, but they are luckily far and few. Thanks for the motivation. It really does help. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Daily Challenge Update Woke up with one hectic headache - felt like I was hungover. Not sure if it was the hectic Crossfit routine yesterday, sugar cravings or high protein lunch. Perhaps just a regular old headache.
