  1. Hi, Been looking at NF for a couple of years (I know!), finally decided to take the plunge and see what its all about. Basically, never had much success or staying power with exercise, have been going to the gym on and off for a couple of months and want to try and focus now. I'm really interested in trying out lifting, rather than my normal (unsuccessful) attempts at running etc. Just completed my benchmarking and started looking at the workouts, but am a bit confused. I'm starting at Bodyweight Workout 2A, which is great - I'm not quite at the bottom! I do
  2. I've printed off my own copy of the worksheet for the 4-week challenge starting...Now? Next week? The one after Feb 4th..... Do we just say, "Hey, I also am Doing The Thing" and post accordingly? Or is there more to it than that?

  4. Hey guys, I'll keep this short because I wrote up a full topic about myself yesterday which can be found below but to be completely honest I am starting to get overwhelmed. I feel like I am on my way but it could be improved and I am missing things. I want to be confident with what I am doing. I am feeling very motivated at the moment to a point that I haven't felt before and I want to take advantage of it. I don't currently work and want to dedicate the necessary time to achieving my goals. If anyone could take some time to really show me the way and get me going i'll be fine from
  5. Hey guys, I am brand new and I feel in over my head. Is the layout 100% forum formatted? Or am I missing something? I am just confused on how to navigate. Intro: What up guys I am a university student that used to be a gym rat and then joined the navy and started to hate working out while serving. I like to think it was the crazy long hours, so I just lost all motivation to do anything except sleep and drink beer in my off time. Since getting out I have not worked out a single day. Ive been out for a year and a half now. Anyway, I recently saw the new Warcraft movie (
  6. Hey! I'm new here . I'm so confused with the diet that this community follows. I've tried eating clean and I can do that but I also had to many "cheat" days So how do I start off? what am I can I eat in compared to what I can't? I tried to google some answer but really it's just confusing me even more... C x
  7. Hello everyone! I stumbled upon Nerd Fitness only yesterday and have been reading articles and poking around. I love the site! I have thought about joining the Nerd Fitness Academy, but do not know if it would be right for me. I am a disabled veteran, and as such it is a struggle to figure out how to keep fit & active with my injury. Anyway, in the mean time, I was trying to figure out how to become a part of the community here. I saw the 6-week challenge that started only yesterday and would love to participate, but to be hoenst, I am pretty overwhelmed by all of the information in th
  8. Thanks for clicking! Time to roll the dice! MAIN GOAL: Turn my flab into muscle, and regain my healthy body from the best timeline - a.k.a. years ago. (Bonus goal: Don't die at 42) SPECIFIC GOALS: 1) Complete online 16-minute workout 4 times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday) 2) Avoid bad foods: Limit pasta, pizza, bread, etc to one day a week, and limit alcohol consumption to one binge night and three casual drinks per week 3) Spend 40% of Netflix and sports-streaming time moving around or exercising, either doing pushups, squats, or cooking healthy stuff SIDE QUEST:
  9. I post an introduction when I first registered for the site, but that was months ago but I didn't seem to have the drive to do anything until now. I think part of that was because I had the money to go super grocery shopping. So here's a little about myself: - 28 y/o - Female - married - Pittsburgh, PA - 5'1" 157# - work F/T in the retail setting, go to school F/T - working on a BA in Liberal Studies, then hopefully a MA in School Counseling. - Size 10/12, would like fit into a size 6. - I realize a 'weight goal' isn't a good idea since I will hopefully be building muscle. - would li
  10. To be perfectly honest, I had never heard of TDEE before this morning. After doing some research, I found out that it stands for "Total Daily Energy Expenditure", and is a gage of how many calories your body needs to function based on numerous factors (activity level, age, weight, etc). Subtracting a percentage of that (10-20%) will result in weight loss! Magic! Hooray! Ok, obviously it's not quite that simple, but it seemed like TDEE would be a good gauge for a target calorie consumption. So I ran my numbers and ended up with.... 2,610??? Through some trial and error, I've found that 1800-
  11. Here's the deal: I hate how my life is going. I'm sure there are millions of people that could say the same thing, and I sympathize with each and every one of them. I'm at a loss. My life is so far off track that I don't know how to begin putting it back together. But, I've made some improvements recently. 1.) I finally got my GED! At the age of 24, I finally fixed my biggest regret! And, I scored high enough for a scholarship! I start at the end of January. 2.) I'm slowly but surely overcoming my depression, co-dependency, caretaker burnout, and general anxiety. It's nice not to be sca
  12. I am a newbie. I started crossfit and paleo about a month ago. I am still learning new things everyday. I dont know if this is a stupid question, but here it goes. What are macros? I hear people talking about it all the time, and it confuses me. Can someone help me understand this?
  13. I'm a complete beginner and after losing 8kg recently, will be stepping into my local gym for the first time at the start of September. I expect for the first couple of weeks to do some cardio and get used to my surroundings until I feel comfortable. I've planned that once I am comfortable, i'll follow the article on how to build your own workout routine (http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/02/15/how-to-build-your-own-workout-routine/) and that will start my progress off until I find things that are more suitable for me? I am massively interested in following the paleo diet and would even
  14. Hi everyone! I've been doing the Rebel Fitness Guide (Basic Training) for about 5 weeks now and am on Level One: Rookie. I've recently rejoined the gym near me because I needed to up the weights and a lot of the time, I feel I work harder in the gym because there are more people there. Now, I'm not VERY unfit, and do feel at the end of these workouts I could go further. I'm VERY keen to start yoga and I'm quite tempted to start spin classes again, which is something I used to do before I gained the weight back that I'd lost a couple of years ago. Now, I do my rebel routine on Mondays, We
  15. Hi All, I’m eating about 70% paleo, little bit of wine and dark chocolate, occasional bit of rice and greek yogurt. Mostly meats, salads, nuts ect ect. I’m still counting calories just because I want to make sure I’m not eating too much, or too little. I’m doing it for the 6 week challenge and then plan to only to it occasionally just to keep me on track. I don’t know how much I should be eating, I’m 175 cm and 63kg. Skinny fat. Trying to put on muscle and lose the fat. So trying to eat enough to gain muscle but still tiny deficit to lose the fat. I’ve been using the tracker
