  1. Some mood musique We had some interesting discussions about French dietary habits last challenge (small portions, variety, satiety, quality, etc) that made me want to try a little French-themed experiment this challenge. It may seem like I have a lot of goals (especially after the last extremely simplified challenge), but some of these goals are things I do pretty well anyway and am just adding it to round out the theme. 🍞 Boulangerie An important aspect of French cuisine is fresh, quality ingredients, especially BREAD 😍. Sure, vegetables too, but we will work up to those. My goal is to bake my own bread twice during the challenge. I have no idea how long I should expect a loaf to last, and I don't want to overwhelm, so two is a good goal to start. The bread does not have to be French -- in fact, I can almost guarantee the first one will be focaccia -- but baguette may happen if I am ambitious. 🍰 Patisserie Desserts are de rigeur in France, even among the svelte, but portion sizes are miniscule compared to American servings. So my goal is to keep desserts to French standard portion sizes - two or three good bites. The best way to make this portion size feel satisfying is of course to take smaller bites and savor a quality dessert (no prepackaged cookies, trail mix, or other low quality "junk foods"). A square of dark chocolate is fine. πŸ›Ά La TraverSeine There is an annual rowing event on the Seine in Paris in early September. Kayaks, canoes, even dragon boats may enter for the 15k "explore" event or 26k competition. The route goes under some 30 Parisian bridges and past most of the tourist traps: Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, etc etc. I...will not be going πŸ˜‚. But, for fun I will pretend to be training for the event by indoor rowing twice a week (minimum) and actually kayaking at least once (hopefully the Poker Run mid-August). 🎨 La Louvre Continue my exploration of pen and ink art via the Inktober52 Instagram challenge. We are on week 29 (I think?) and I haven't missed a week yet! ⚜️ Lingua Franca Maintain my streak of foreign language practice on Duolingo (currently at 209 days).
  2. A long long time ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away...on a Forest Moon....I found Nerd Fitness, lost a lot of weight and got healthy, fit and strong. Today however is 1 Jan 2019 and the times they are a changing. I'm going back to my roots and will be reading over some old NF articles and challenges. I'll probably revise my goals each month in this log, so here is January: January Goals: - No alcohol - No bread - Angry Birds workout 3 times a week (Mon, Thurs, Sat) Starting weight Jan 1 2019: 98.9 kg's / 198 lbs (this is my heaviest ever) Final Weight Target: 78.9kg's So yeah...20 kg's to lose. I'm experienced enough to know that the scales lie and i should be losing fat not muscle. Anyway that's the plan for now, keep the goals basic and get some momentum going again.
  3. Japan does not like bread that isn't white and sliced like Texas toast. There are a few bakeries where you can find bread that isn't white or Brown-but-not-really-wheat-bread-just-kind-of-brown-and-dry-and-no-healthier-than-the-white-bread, but they are rare and suuuuuuper expensive. So after years of debating, we caved and bought a bread machine! It's been nice making our own white bread so far that we can slice to much thinner degrees, toast more or less, and whatnot, but the recipe book it came with only lists how to make that, white bread with additions (like nuts), sweet dessert breads, or rolls. I'd love to make some actually whole wheat bread, maybe some rye, pumpernickle, multi-grain, just...something healthier for those times I'm craving it! But I can only find break machine flour in white here, and I'm having trouble finding recipes on how to make my own. Anyone have favorite healthy bread machine recipes they can share?
  4. 1. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. School's out on Week 2. And even so, week 1 will be administrative work only, child-free. These things will mean a lot of changes to my routine, added to the relentless chaos my life's in. I want to focus on following my bookending rituals like the challenge before, and tweak them if necessary to adapt to my summer vacation's routine. Goal: Bookends Daily Rituals Week 1 ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 2 ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 3 ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 4 ☐☐☐☐☐☐☐ 0/28 2.β€œDo you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?” Another thing that I've been trying to change is my IF schedule. I still do 16-8 IF. But since I'll have more time in the mornings, I'll switch dinner for breakfast. Nothing makes a morning good like a good breakfast (while watching cartoons in your underwear). I'll still workout in a fastened state (since I workout first thing in the morning). I'm taking one day of the week from this goal for the occasional social gathering, hangout, etc. Goal: Changes in Intermittent Fasting Week 1 ☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 2 ☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 3 ☐☐☐☐☐☐ Week 4 ☐☐☐☐☐☐ 0/24 3.β€œIt's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” I live in beautiful (but dangerous) valley. I've always lived in the shadow of a mountain. A mountain that greets me every day and dares me to fight it. I constantly say I live in Mordor, but how can you live in Mordor without climbing Mount Doom? The thing is, I'm in not condition to hike this mountain.So, every week I'm taking one day to practice, walk the city and find a place (I have a park in mind) in which I can have breakfast, read, study or simply lay down on the grass and do nothing, nothing at all. If I've done a good work during the week. I'll reward myself! (probably with food, which I know I shouldn't but... it's like the most affordable thing I can think of right now) Also, I'm doing this for my mental sanity. Too much time trapped indoors writing like Bilbo Baggins is starting to affect me. Goal: Going out the Door (The Road to Mount Doom I) Week 1 ☐ Week 2 ☐ Week 3 ☐ Week 4 ☐ 0/4 AND, of course it wouldn't be a Shogun's challenge without some post-apocalyptic Venezuelan horror story. By the end of this month I'd know if I'm gonna live in the next North Korea, my own personal Sauron is promising to turn the country in a communal state, which is absolutely no bueno. So, if I go AWOL, you know that I joined a deep underground resistance movement or something and that I don't have access to the interwebs until we hire a decent Felicity Smoak-level hacker. Know anyone?
  5. Good afternoon all, As I am getting my groove back, I already know from life experience what my issues are going to be, nutrition wise. Here I want to see what y'all think about my certain weaknesses including the following: - Ice cream (especially bluebell) - Beer (I swear I am not an alcoholic ) - Bread First Ice cream. This one is easier to avoid. A year ago during my first ever successful fitness track, I could avoid this easily. Just don't buy it. It's overpriced, has zero nutritional value and needs no social compromise. However, every couple of months I will just stare at that dang thing in the frozen section (especially mint chocolate chip). It get's harder and harder to say no. What do you think? Second is beer. This one is harder, because my friends and I are beer connoisseurs. It's not that we drink a lot, just that we like trying different beers. As stated before, during my last fitness stint, I had ways of dealing with this, but they weren't the most effective at killing the craving. I completely avoided beer during the week days. On the weekend, I either bought very low cal beer like Beck Light (only 55 calories), or I would space it out with bottles of water. So maybe have only 2 or 3 beers rather than 5. But again, it's tough. Your friends are enjoying a new craft beer while your either drinking the same old same old, or they are goading you into having "just one more come on". Or you just have a really bad day after work, and just need a drink. Or you go to that one bar that has a hundred beers on top "what you're only gonna try 1/2?" Thoughts? Finally bread. This is the worst for me. I will never completely cut it out of my diet (and don't plan to) but dang it's hard to not. It smells amazing, tastes great whether on a sandwich, cooked, or with a spread of some kind. Nothing is better to me than going over to the bakery part of the grocery store and just trying or buying a big loaf of bread. And it's a stupidly cheap, tasty filler when you're trying to save money. This is the hardest for me. I may need to go to rehab for this one
  6. Hi guys, I've been doing a lot of research on the difference between sugar and fat as fuel sources for our body. I'm currently a student at the National Bakery School in the UK and have become fascinated with the idea of producing a range of "baked" goods that are not carbohydrate heavy but rather protein and fat based. I am currently working on a sandwich bread alternative and would find it really helpful if any one could spare a couple of minutes to complete my survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/H5XNYC6 I'm really passionate about turning the baking industry in to one that is beneficial to our health rather than damaging, I just need to find out if there are potential customers out there! A huge thank you to anybody that can spare the time to help!
  7. Is it better to eat 100g of bread or 100g of rice? In terms of reducing grain intake.
  8. I'm a big fan of white bread but that's horrible so... if this bread is paleo i'll give it a shot or i'll just not eat bread. Here's the ingredients list and all that:
  9. From my understanding of the Paleo lifestyle, dairy and carbohydrates are frowned upon. I'm fine with nixing dairy because I actually love soy milk, but dropping bread will be hard for me because I'm not the most experienced cook, I eat my share in sandwiches. Is there a brand and type of bread that is the least harmful? For example, whole wheat? I'm so suspicious of preservatives and hormones in everything that I had to ask lol.
  10. Hey there! I've only recently discovered this diet and I'm eager to hop into it, but before I do so I want to be prepared. I eat bread quite alot, and when I say that I usually eat it every morning and occasionally lunch. However seeing that's gotta go, does anyone have some quick alternatives (and some for lunch if possible)? It doesn't have to be too fancy either. Thanks!
  11. Hi. My name is Sara Benincasa. I'm a comedian and a writer and a human. I played a lot of King's Quest when I was a kid. I was in marching band for two years, and I was actually on a competitive baton and flag squad. On purpose. I spend a lot of time on Twitter and Facebook when I ought to be a.) working on my novel b.) working on a script c.) eating healthy foods or d.) exercising. I try fad diets and then stop them. I always sucked at sports and so I react to the thought of exercise by whining and running in the opposite direction (generally straight to bed to take a nap). I'm here because I'm a nerd and I want to get fit and I'm not sure what to do about it. I love bread and pasta and ice cream and I'm pretty sure I'd love a cronut if someone put it in front of me. I'm not good at denying myself the nomz. I like yoga, but I don't go. I even like lifting weights, but I don't go to the gym. I spend a lot of time napping and avoiding the great outdoors, and I'm tired of it. I also -- and I wrote a memoir about this, so I'm comfortable posting about it in an open forum -- deal with depression and anxiety, and take medication to help. Recently I tried to blame my weight gain on the meds, but my doctor said nope -- it's not the meds. It's the fact that I'm sedentary and that I loves me some carb action. And he's right! So I'd love to hear your inspiring tales, even if you've only lost five pounds. Five pounds sounds amazing to me right now! Good luck to you. I hope you are having an awesome day. Best, Sara B.
