Hey Rebels! My name is Amber, However, I choose the name Samus because that is the amount of strength I want in my life. To not let the past dictate my future, but to help push me forward to better goals! I started reading nerd fitness in December of last year. I had just quit drinking soda (6-8 Cans of Coke a day), and was looking for the next step. An article on how to start eating vegetables (Spoiler: I had been eating exactly ZERO vegetables since grade school), a good kitchen knife, and a gradual shift to Paleo over the course of 3 months, and here I am. I'm now about 90% paleo. I still have tamari with my stir-fry (It's just so darn tasty). I started at 264 lbs. While transitioning to paleo, I lost 10 lbs. The NF articles helped me feel better about myself and kickstarted my Main Quest Line. I decided it was time to take it even further so I signed up. I did my first workout today in 6 years. I was in the army for some time. Then I got injured overseas and I was discharged. I had trouble losing weight even while in the military. My drill sergeants would tell me I could eat whatever I liked, as long as I worked out (Which was clearly wrong). Anyway, Sorry to jabber on. I started with the Beginners Body Weight Circuit, but without someone else there to check on my form, I worry that I'm not doing certain exercises correctly. I don't have a mirror big enough to check myself. Is there a way to feel out my body (IE: Tightness in certain body parts) if i'm doing things like the Plank position or lunges right? My goal is to be as strong as I can possibly be. Like Batman strong. I know that may seem unattainable. But I'm willing to keep going and striving for it one small step at a time (Though, I should probably start with being able to do a pull-up or a full set of regular push-ups). Thank you in advance and i'm looking forward to being apart of this community!
