  1. *marker* As of 3/3/2019 I am starting my first week of NF. My goals this week are: -Eat every 2-4 hours -Try to use the NF recipes for ideas on what to eat -Walk five minutes a day -Take my measurements -Take before photos (I have not pulled the trigger on this. -Going cold turkey on TV and movies at home. Will update with my info and current plan. Want to post yesterday's food log and start there.
  2. Hello peeps, I am so pleased to have found this forum and you lovely lot! I was having a bit of a random google of things yesterday morning, you know, like "absolute beginners guide to doing some exercise" and "is drinking vast quantities of wine REALLY bad for you?" and somehow managed to stumble across Nerd Fitness. Happy days, it struck a chord with me, and now I'm all motivated and eager So, about me! I live in the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus though I'm thoroughly English; my vices are wine, haribo and cheese. I love to cook, I love to read, and I have in the past spent far more time than is healthy playing in Second Life. I've been overweight for all of my adult life, fluctuating from between 168lb to 220lb at my heaviest. When I first moved here I lost a few pounds purely from the change in diet and no longer having a car to get around, then a brief spell in hospital last year had me accidentally drop two stone. My overall quest for the next 12 months is - lose the remaining 21lb, get fit and tone up where I have already lost weight. We eat pretty well out here, takeaways are rare and if I suggest eating fried chicken (another vice!) to my other half he looks at me in horror. He's a bit of a gym freak and very very conscious of what he eats; days he's not at work I cook three to four full meals from scratch, days he does work it's only breakfast and dinner... If anyone is interested in recipes please squeal, I can talk about food all day long and there's pretty much nothing I won't try cooking! Anyway, apologies I'm waffling on (I have tax returns to do and I'm trying to avoid it...). The things I've picked for this challenge are: Diet Cut out added sugar - Cakes (I bake a lot for my step-son), haribo and sugar in coffee Reduce the wine - Cut it down to three nights per week instead of seven! Fitness Walk the coastal path to the beach and back at least 5 x per week (about 3.5km) LUYL Get into a proper work routine - I work from home and it's far too easy to become distracted! So I guess I've probably posted this a bit early but I reckon that I have a lot to do before I start in earnest on the first... clearing out the cupboards of Christmas food for starters! Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing *Hugs* Mabs
  3. Um... hello! What to say... I turned 40 this year - argh! I'm sure that can't be quite right, I thought 40 was like, responsible adult age. Hey ho I was ill this time last year with pneumonia, and accidentally lost a couple of stone I'd been stressing about for years. Which is great! I wish someone had suggested that I be hospitalised sooner... So yeah, smaller than I was but still overweight, none of my bloody clothes fit, and now I want to get fit, and toned, and lose the last couple of stone that are hanging on in there. I live somewhere in the Mediterranean, bit of a macho culture and there would certainly be raised eyebrows if I went in the local gym on my own so, I turned to the t'interwebnet and found you lovely lot - I've read a lot of your posts and everyone seems lovely and welcoming and inspiring, so I'm going to go look at that "Challenge" tab now, and get myself going! Cheers! Mabs x
  4. Challenge 14 I turn 40 during this challenge so this one will be about reinforcing some healthy habits and putting some structures in place to cope with entering my middle years. Some things are getting harder as I get older, recovery in particular so I'll need to focus on mobility more. I still have a bum wrist which does rule most lifting out but I'm getting around it with lots of leg work and it's slowly improving. Goals: 1. Don't look into the light...[DEX 3] I spend way too much time on computers and TV. - Maximum 1.5 hours a day of either surfing the web or watching TV. Using PC for work stuff doesn't count. 2. Lift [sTR 5] - 3 times a week 3. Eat (well) [CHA 2] https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ctTQeTPILI8 - Full Paleo 3 days a week 4. I like the way you work it [WIS 5] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KL9mRus19o - I'm working on a plan for a small side business to earn some extra cash and keep me sane, goals for this -- Finish prototype -- Finish cost model -- Launch website
  5. Hey rebels, I'll hit forty in about 6 months and I want to be in good shape when I do. So I figured I'd list a few meta goals here to remind me what I want to achieve until then. Not so long term & epic but hey, semi. It's very much weight loss oriented but I would also like to increase my running speed. These should go hand in hand beautifully. I'm a bit vain so I'd like to get "good" at running (i.e. hit the "local class" age grading, which is 60%). And I really want to be able to do a single muscle up just for the hell of it. weight loss fit into a US size 0 fit into a US size 2 fit into a US size 4 fit into a US size 6 upper body strength do one muscle-up do 10 pull ups do 5 pull ups do 3 pull ups do 1 pull up do 10 chin ups do 5 chin ups do 3 chin ups speed do 10K in under 52' (60%AG) under 8.20min/mile do 10K in under 54' (57.8%AG) under 8.40min/mile do 10K in under 58' (53.8%AG) under 9.30min/mile do 10K in under 62' (51.2%AG) do 5K in under 25' (60% AG) under 8min/mile do 5K in under 26' (58.6% AG) under 8.20min/mile do 5K in under 27' (56.5% AG) under 8.40min/mile do 5K in under 28' (53.25% AG) under 8.55min/mile do 5K in under 29' (52.6% AG) under 9.15min./mile
  6. Hi everyone! I am very new to this group. (I posted this in the intro section too!) My name is Kim & I am 40 years old. I am happily married with 4 kids and have struggled with my weight for a few years off and on. I am not hugely overweight - maybe about 20-25 lbs over approximately. I am 5'5" and currently 155 lbs. Two years ago I had very good success where I got almost down to my goal. I was at around 138 and looked in the best shape I had been in a long time. I was doing some circuit type weight training, sometimes an extra cardio session later on in the day some days, eating healthy. We hit some financial stress and I totally fell off the wagon. I have been on thyroid meds for many years and lately had my tests done to see if any changes, my doctor said that my TSH was a bit low and so we adjusted for that but then got the more accurate tests done (T4, T3 I think) and he told me to go back on my regular dose. I feel a bit lost with this because I am on a dessicated thyroid med, most docs don't have a clue on how to adjust for this. I may have to go back to a naturopath to see what to do. Not sure if it's the hitting 40 thing or if it's the thyroid what but my body just doesn't want to let go of this extra weight I've packed on! It's very frustrating! I am extremely healthy otherwise, infact my cholesterol was one of the best the doctor has ever seen. I will say I don't have as much energy as I did a couple years ago so that might have something to do with it. I have been consistently exercising - back to midday circuit training with weights. Eating very clean with the odd cheat (I feel I need it) and NOTHING has changed. I take my inches and weigh myself once a week same time of day and I am beyond frustrated right now!!!! Any suggestions would be very helpful! Thanks! Kim
  7. Hi there, I'm really keen on the concept of gamifying my health, so here I am at Level One. I have a *lot* of weight to lose. More importantly, though, I want to regain my fitness. In the space of 18 months, my fitness has all but disappeared; hopefully, now that so many things in my life have changed for the better, I will also regain my fitness. That is my ultimate goal in this quest. I used to train 4-6 days a week, for over 10 years. Whilst I carried extra weight, I was fit. I could run, do a stack of push-ups and crunches etc; lift a respectable amount in weight training; and I loved boxing, too. That all evaporated when I ended my marriage of 20 years, after discovering a looooooooooooong history of cheating. I couldn't afford gym, but I went back to uni, got my degree, and I'm working, and taking care of my family. Unfortunately, in the wake of the divorce, I lost my fitness, and my health. I am now determined to turn this around, get my health back in order, and continue to keep the goodness growing in my life. Anyhoo... I'm here at Level One, and I am trying to figure out what that looks like. Level One, Week One: Kill the Rats! Walk every day this week Plan, cook, and eat healthy, portion-smart meals Hydrate & vitamins Clear cupboards of any "rat-traps" Now, to work on levelling up!
