  1. Hey! I'm Jean but you can call me PurplePotato! I was recommended this website by a friend of mine and I was wondering if you guys could help me out. So, I wanted to get into muscle acquisition since I've got various health issues that often hinder my energy and overall strength. I'm looking to exercise my arms, legs, and core, since I have to work a lot of retail jobs and heavy lifting looks good on a job application, lol. I'm a creator, and a lot of my work is sedentary (I'm both a writer and digital artist), so anything I can do indoors is wonderful, though I'm
  2. Shut down a bit after I dropped out in December. Didn't come back in January because I've been pretty chronically tired, and am finally off to the doctor next week to see if there's anything behind that beyond the usual combination of stress and work (I have my suspicions). Still tired, of course, but I miss you guys, so I am back! I have a great big project on the horizon that got approved last night! I am very excited and terrified about it. I am not expecting to get much rest in the next... 10 weeks unless I practice some dedicated self-management, so this challenge's goals are fo
  3. Alright, I’m starting my first challenge here with Nerd Fitness. I’m new to the site and have never done this, so bear with me. I’ll try to make it interesting. So, after being sealed in the sacred realm for 7 years, Rhia (Link) has gained quite a bit of weight and is in no shape to become the Hero of Time and save Hyrule from the tyranny of Gannondorf. So now it is time for Rhia to gather her courage and head out on her quest to train and get into shape for the safety of the realm. It does no good for the Hero of Time to be late. While Rhia ne
  4. “Energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Thus power generation processes and energy sources actually involve conversion of energy from one form to another, rather than creation of energy from nothing.” The law of conservation of energy. It’s an irrefutable fact of physics. We talk about it a lot in relation to weight loss. Calories in, calories out. But I wonder; what would this look like in terms of the way I spend my daily energy? The way I spend my life? I tend to think about some things as "requiring energy" while others don't. But th
  5. Ello All! I'm here for this challenge and I'm utterly excited. Quick note of who I am: Female 4 kids (2 canine, 2 human) Married to a magical man I love riding bike Strives for energy and understanding of what I eat and how it affects me My moods change more then the weather. I am training for a new job! First time I've worked in a year and a half. Here's my Long Term Goals: Ride 1000 miles this year (I'm at 380 miles) Lose my bloated gut Have unbelievable energy Be like Jeannie Gaffigan on the Jim Gaffigan
  6. Hi and welcome to my Newbie ramblings....I found this site less then 48 hours ago so please bear with me if I am doing this wrong. I am a 33 year old busy as mother of two..a 14 and a 4, who not only juggles children but also Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well as hurling around an extra 25 kg of fat that I need to remove. I have always battled with my body image and emotional eating which I used to balance with obsessive amounts of exercise so I didn't gain to much weight but after developing Glandular Fever at 25 and never fully recovering the excessive exercise part had to stop,
  7. I am at a the entrance of the Forest. Everything looks calm, inviting. But this is a lie. I know that the second I will cross the threshold of the forest, the beautifully green vegetation will try and absorb my energy, and touching any of them to rest will lead to a faster energy loss. The key is to keep on moving, to continue, during the cold nights and the sweltering days, to not let myself get distracted by the mesmerizing beauty of the forest, by the intelligence of the wild animals around me. I will encounter help on my road, and I prepared well for this journey. But it won't be easy, it
  8. Yes, I am posting this challenge very late. I have had this theme in mind since before the challenge officially started, but I decided that there were other things that needed to happen more urgently than posting my challenge. Now I have waited long enough… Also, this challenge marks my 1 year anniversary on the NF boards doing challenges. I think this is a great challenge to mark my Nerdiversary (I was a month late in that challenge, too). :-D Those of you who have been following me for awhile know that I have spent a considerable amount of effort on digging out my baggage, doing some
  9. I have been receiving Nerdfitness newsletters for a while now - I like what they do here - encouraging health and fitness without the "gym rat" persona. So I decided to join in finally. It has been my mission to get myself into a better place with my health for over a year now - I want to be in better health and fitness at 45 then I was at 35! Having my last baby (of five) at 39 really kicked my butt and I haven't been able to recover physically yet (and she is now 3). To my credit- I have made a lot of changes so far - I have changed the way our family eats over the last year - retraining mys
  10. Not very assassin-y but after the last two hectic weeks, I feel like Memphis tonight: MEMPHIS: "You'll have to forgive me. The music's gone clean out of me." MUMBLE: No, it hasn't. It's just like singing with your body. MUMBLE: It's just one big old foot after the other. That's it. MEMPHIS [singing]: You don't have to be beautiful... MAIN GOAL: Get that body composition in place - loose some weight! Loose 10kg by end of June 2015. I lost a couple of cm during the last/first challenge, and in this week that I took off, inbetween challenges, I lost just over 1kg! HOW: Q1 - Exercise 3x/week
  11. Hi everyone, I'm a mom from South Africa who really needs to get out and get fit again. Used to be fit, strong and do a lot of hiking, but just lost the plot the last couple of years. I have tried to stay active by doing things like mowing the lawn (we have a huge garden), but sinus and allergies became too much last year, trying to stay up (running, jumping, walking) with my two boys (5yrs and 8yrs) but laziness and just general lost of oemph because of too much work in front of computer, in house, name it... made me tired and feeling old! So excuses in the past, I started a new exercise ro
  12. This is a new group, and I am open to suggestions - so pipe up and let me know how this group can be made better so that YOU can stick with the challenge and overcome the barriers that hold you back. This group is for people who suffer from depression in all its forms. Seasonal affective disorder. Clinical depression. The "blues". Or as my friend Lycan Thom calls it - The Black Dog. I always thought that I was alone .... or relatively rare .... in suffering from SAD while trying to workout and eat right. And then when I became an ambassador and started seeing so many new people posting
  13. After hitting a slump during my sixth challenge I decided to "quit" on that one and take some time to focus on other things in my life. I was starting a new job (which is going well), and dealing with some other things. Most of that is sorted out now, I kicked a bout of depression I was having and overall am feeling positive in coming back here. I decided it was also time to get back to basics, refocus on my original goals coming to NF, and start fresh. I was pushing myself a bit too hard to branch out in my last two challenges and they suffered as a result. So without further ado... History
  14. Hello Guys! I have been following Nerd Fitness emails for a while and I decided to give it a go and write here on the Forum! I am a reasonably healthy and slim individual, however, I have a very sedentary job (office-based) and after more than a year of pretty much no exercising I have started to feel as if I am deteriorating. I have started cycling to work every day about 2 months ago (3 miles each way, up hill back home!) and day on day I can start feeling the improvements to how easy it is to cycle. However, despite having this form of exercise very regularly (I now cycle instead o
  15. Main Quest : Get leaner while improving my energy levels. I need to be (more) strict with myself. Hence the screws I think I'm doing a lot of the right things. I just need to do them a little better.. Sub-quest 1 Get on the plate The current regime is 3-4 meals a day. The fourth meal is optional and depends on how hungry I am when I get in after work. I know I've got back into some old mindless habits again so I'll be sitting down at the kitchen table, focussing on what goes in to my gub, staying off bread, beer (except a little Belgian at the weekend) and processed sugar. There needs to
  16. Hi everyone! I've started, and done pretty well, with a new 10K program. All seemed fine until I started getting into the heavier runs and I noticed that I started to fatigue immediately, migraines have accompanied my every run and recovery, & my legs are like anvils.Performance sucks! Motivation is still there though, YAY! So I started researching the migraines after exercise and found that it's possible that I am not getting enough carbs. Ok, I'm a Paleo kind of girl, it makes sense. So I felt a little icky this past Saturday night and ate some homemade chicken and brown rice sou
  17. "I'm prepared to scour the the Earth for that motherfucker. If (ENERGY) goes to Indochina, I want a n*#$$# waiting in a bowl of rice ready to pop a cap in (her) ass!" last challenge was nothing to write home about. life happend an i was mostly overwhelmed. i want to find a way to keep building my own business as a social worker, studying psychology, moving, reducing cigarettes and losing weight without it being too much to handle. so im back with a new set of mini - goals intended to maximize my physical and mental energy. GOAL I "You remember Antoine Roccamora, half black, half Samo
  18. I have very low energy levels. I poke at what needs to be done, but the minimum is usually what I manage to get done. (My minimum is higher than those with a well-kept house, but it's far below any sort of rural workload.) I am weary much of the time. I do have plantar facialis in one foot, tarsal tunnel in the other. I was also reading over a previous post, and I mentioned my legs constantly hurting. I'm hoping that all of this is weight-related, and I know how to manage those aspects. I don't know how to overcome the need to spend so much time resting.
  19. Help! I am on day 4 of my new paleo lifestyle. Overall, I am feeling a ton better. Heartburn is starting to be manageable and I feel well rested in the morning. My workouts are a different story. I literally have no gas in the tank. I really need some advice on how to increase my energy levels. I kind of figured that my body will have to adjust to my new way of life but if I can have some advice to minimize the "adjustment period" that would be great. Thanks!
  20. Wondering if anyone knows of any yoga videos or work outs that don't include the hippie B.S "energy" "flow" "chakra" ect. I'm trying to get more into yoga but I get distracted by all that nonsense. I guess what I'm looking for is non-spiritual yoga. Thanks.
  21. Well, hello friends! I have a familiar story... overweight most of my life, didn't play sports, wasn't very active (though, I could play the heck out of the playground!), battled self-image issues, tried a few things with no success, and was genuinely unhappy when it came to all things body-related. It's not all depressing though - I have learn to compensate in other areas of my life - a strong sense of self, a dark and twisted sense of humour, and a huge amount of creativity being the primary ones. A little bit more about my story... about three years ago, I discovered roller derby and
