  1. Hello, rebels. I'm 27, and up until the last year or so, I've been in pretty bad shape. I had mild exertion asthma, which limited my participation in sports and other physical activities - there was too much coughing and gasping for air for it to be any fun. Due to my sedentary lifestyle, I've always been relatively weak, but I'm working on changing that. About a year ago, I started biking to work. I live three miles away, and I took it slow, so it was very gentle exercise. After a year of this, I was surprised to find out that I was actually capable of running three miles without stopping or showing any signs of asthma. My doctor had told me that cardio would make my asthma better, but I never thought it would be totally cured like this! (Cats still give me asthma, but not running.) Here's my battle plan for getting in shape: For now, I'm working on becoming a well-rounded athlete. I'm working on sprints, runs of 1-3 miles, and bodyweight exercises. When I have mastered those things, I'll start lifting weights. Once I have perfected my super-strength and super-speed, I'll find a way to use my powers for good. Possibly I'll join a sport or do martial arts. I am also recovering from a wrist injury. I sprained it (or something like that) about three years ago when I fell off a bicycle, but it still hurts occasionally if I overuse it. I'm working on strengthening my hands, wrists, and forearms. I'm hoping some strength will prevent re-injury. Any advice for continuing rehab would be appreciated! I have dabbled in many aspects of nerd-dom. I am primarily a book-nerd (English major), but I'm currently taking a few levels in computer-nerd. At times I've been a retro gamer and a pen-and-paper RPG player. I am a nerd of all trades and a master of none.
  2. Hello, Posting on here is really scary honestly but I'm hoping that getting involved with the community will help me stay on track. I'm 28 years old and have been working and going to school for the last 10 years. That's how I would describe myself to people; I work and go to school and sometimes I get to play roller hockey. However, I finally graduated this month and am still searching for full time employment so I think it's time I cultivate a new identity. Over the last 4 or 5 years of school I've had lots of sleep deprivation, copious amounts of caffeine, forgetting to eat, and stress eating so I've gained probably around 60 pounds. During that time I've tried making changes to my diet and exercise, like eliminating fast food, incorporating more vegetables, eating several small meals a day, and getting regular exercise. Each time I got serious about it I would lose about 20 pounds and several inches but then something would come along (an assignment or exam) and I'd get stressed, get sick, fall behind and get more stressed, get poor grades and get depressed, and gain back all the weight and then some. Inevitably I got tired of the methods I was using anyway (although cutting out fast food and eating more vegetables has stuck). Eating several small meals a day and tracking calories made me constantly hungry and constantly thinking about what I was going to eat and when. I felt like my life revolved around food. And I hate cardio so I could never stay motivated to exercise. All that said, I fancy myself as adventurous, curious, athletic, and strong. Unfortunately, I don't really feel like any of those things. Hence, why I am ceasing to lurk and am finally joining the Rebellion! I'm hoping I can get out of my comfort zone to meet some new people, learn some new things, and reach my goals. Right now I'm aiming to improve my diet first and foremost. With the help of MyFitnessPal I've been tracking calories but I also want to focus on my macros. I seem to eat a ton of carbs and not very much protein. I hate cooking and am on a pretty tight budget so making the necessary changes might be difficult. If anyone has any advice, tips, simple recipes I'd love to hear them! As far as exercising, with the exception of playing roller hockey once a week I've been pretty sedentary for the last few months so I'm trying to work back into it. I figured something simple like playing disc golf a few times a week and doing yoga or TRX a few days a week would be a good approach but I can't seem to find any consistency so I'm hoping to find some accountability for myself here on the forums. Eventually I'd love to find a gym where I can train in Olympic weightlifting. It's also on my list to get more into hiking, biking, kayaking, and sailing now that I have more time. And of course play more hockey! Well, that everything I could possibly think to say about myself. I hope I can get to know some of you!
  3. Reposting from my introduction thread: I'm 28 years old and have been working and going to school for the last 10 years.
