  1. Hello fellow nerds. In the last few minutes before the new year, I'm frantically scrambling to finish my New Year's resolutions. I had a lot of fitness ones this year after I realized that I could use my stomach like a drum. I've really been inspired by Steve and the rest of the NF community. My resolutions this year are as follows: 1. Is to lose 2 inches off my gut by July. 2. Because I've been bad about this before, my second resolution is to exercise at least every other day. On days when I don't do any official exercise, I need to do 300 jumping jacks and 15 pushups divided throughout the day. 3. Eat paleo at least 4 days out of the week. When I'm not eating paleo I need to be doing a 16-8 fast. I also resolved that if I binge on sugary or greasy foods one day, then I have to do a 24 hour fast within the next 2 days. 4. This was probably covered in the above resolution, but it is to fast at least 5 days of the week, or any day not eating paleo. I'm going to try to do a 24 hour fast every 2 weeks. Well, those were my resolutions. What do you think? Anything that I can improve?
  2. Sticking with similar things from my last challenge and adding some new ones. I meant to have this all typed up over the weekend but life got in the way. Nutrition *Bring lunch to work at least 3x/wk -- I've been falling into the habit not preparing my lunch bag the night before and then I end up running out of time the next morning. *Veggies with lunch and/or dinner -- I did ok with this during the last challenge but I need to do better. I wasn't consistent *One non-water drink/day -- This will be difficult for me because I always seem to think I have to have some kind of juice or soda with my meals. Exercise *Continue with Orangetheory (OTF) at least 3x/wk *Run/Cross-Train 3x/wk *STRETCH daily *Foam Roll 2x/wk -- I am terrible at doing this and really want to get into the habit of doing it regularly Self-Care *Give myself at least 1 uninterrupted hour every night to read and relax -- I'm quite looking forward to this challenge since I love to read and rarely get to spend a full uninterrupted hour doing it.
  3. Hello, my name is Tobi, I'm 29 years old, I am 175cm tall and my weight is 60kg. I am a vegan. I try to eat as healthy as possible, lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, tofu, rice,... and I only drink water. Since June I walk at least 8000 steps a day and I work out 5 days a week for 30 minutes. I use an app called Sworkit (it uses body weight excercises) which tells me what to do. For example, I do push-ups for 30 seconds, then sit-ups for 30 seconds, a 30 second plank,... and every 5 minutes I have a break for 30 seconds. After doing this I am completely exhausted and can't move anymore. The problem is, I don't see any progress. This program works quite good for me because it works well with my schedule and the workout is doable for me, I could not do a harder workout (yet). I don't want to look like a bodybuilder, just get a flat stomach. My ideal body shape would be something like this. Example 1 Example 2 I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it is even possible to reach my goal with this method. I just need something that can still be easily implemented in my daily routine. What bothers me the most, is the fat on my lower belly. I just can't get rid of it. Maybe someone can help me. Thanks for reading. Tobi
  4. Hello beautiful people! I'm writing from the wonderful city of Boston, USA. I'm a third year university student studying bioengineering. My weight is always something I've struggled with. I was blessed with a wicked slow metabolism(thx mom) and my parents didn't enforce the good values of nutritional education as I was growing up. My first two years of college were not good, as I carried those uneducated eating habits with me in extreme ways. I started mega binge eating to cope with stress, closet eating, and only exercising minimally which ultimately led to horrific skin, weight gain, and pre diabetes. I knew I had to do something quickly. I did my first two years elsewhere, but when moved to Boston something in the atmosphere changed. I had some family help me out and have been such an amazing influence on me for the past year. Fall semester of 2016 was one of the best times of my life. My school work was going great, my work schedule was manageable, I pack day lunch everyday, and went to the gym 5 times a week. I looked and felt awesome and had so much encouragement from others to keep up the good work. Although i don't think i will ever go back to the horrific binge eating mindset i used to have, this semester is definitely different from the fall. My school work is MUCH more vigorous, I picked up more hours at work, the weather definitely has a large effect on my mood and motivation. I barely meal prep anymore and only go to the gym maybe once a week. My goal for being active on this forum is to stay accountable for what I'm eating, and find some motivation(and virtual friends!) to get back into going to the gym more often. I love working out, but I hardly have anytime, and what little time I do have, I want to actually relax! My biggest weakness is absolutely carbs, ESPECIALLY in the morning. Muffins are bae. Also, with having to get up early and generally a stressful hard day ahead, I'm always like "oh this day is gonna suck, you know what will cheer me up? A coffee and a muffin from Dunkin Donuts" THIS IS BAD.... Any who, I'd like to get out of that habit as well and find good breakfast recipes for those who are always on the go! I'm super excited to join the nerd fitness world. Any advice is SO APPRECIATED. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. Ooo i guess a bit about myself I'm very much a science nerd. I love love love biology and physics and chem. Honestly, just learning in general. It's addicting. I also loving reading and listening to sci-fi pod casts, listening to jazz, and watching dog videos. Looking forward to chatting with you all. xoxo Mak
  5. Howdy Folks, I've lost 18lbs since I started dieting (Huzzah! ), I've stopped eating bread and stopped drinking fizzy drinks, and I eat paleo lunch & breakfast (though I admit to succumbing to chocolate and a little ice cream). I cycle to college each weekday (and to work on saturday), which is only about 10 minutes each way, and then climb up 3 floors worth of stairs and arriving to lectures sweaty in the morning sucks... I live with my parents, so mainly eat what they do for dinner (main offenders are potatos/pasta/etc. along with some processed stuff like pre-made korma sauces and the like..along with the odd pizza etc.). I would happily go fully paleo, however I don't have the money to buy more than my breakfast & lunch, and my family aren't keen on going paleo. I have been pretty lazy when it comes to excercise, but after next week when I have exams, I'm ready to fully commit to a workout plan...I mean, I know I'll be happier, more confident and of course fitter (Along with the aesthetic benefit, naturally ), so it's time to get on with it and stop denying myself those benefits by being lazy and poorly disciplined. So, what weekly workout plan would you recommend? I want to get stronger, faster, more flexible, more agile, etc. Has to be home workouts, I have a bike, a dumbell (with 2x 2.5 kg + 4x 0.5kg weights on it. I'm pretty sure my dad has a barbell hiding away somewhere which, provided I can dig it out, I can also use. I cannot currently do press ups but I am sure they will get easier as I lose weight and strengthen myself. In an ideal world, where I get a better job and therefore could pay for all my food, and could go properly paleo, what kind meal plan would you recommend? I am 6'2 and 254.8lbs... Would you recommend committing to any workouts that come out of this during my upcoming exam week, or should I wait until after that is over to start? Any advice is appreciated. Thank you, Tezra.
  6. Look what the cat dragged in! A high five and some carrot sticks for the person who can tell me where I quoted the topic title from? :3 My name is Daniel, I hail from Somerset, in the Southwest of the United Kingdom - A mostly cold and wet puddle, full of cows, tauntauns, sheep, dragons and hobbits. I've been lurking in the shadows of NF for a month or so now, like some snotty-green troll that lives under a bridge, building up resources, information and facts to help support myself on a quest for better health, and more so a better life (and if I get my hands on a few 1UPs whilst I'm here, even better!). I've been pursuing a full body workout regime now for a week (well, 4 days to be precise as we nerds are) but I have taken to consider working out is a 7 day affair, as when I'm not working out I am doing everything I can to ensure my body fully recovers before the next gym session. I have also taken to workout every other day, rather than sticking to my Monday, Wednesday and Friday routine as otherwise the weekends I find myself at a loss as to what I should be doing towards my health and fitness - though am I missing out of valuable recovery time?? I have also taken up the 6 week challenge, though I have started late because I joined last Sunday (shame on me!). I am still going to catch you all up and earn myself some credibility within the Rebellion! If you're interested my challenge is as follows: 6 Week Challenge (Start 17.11.2013) Main Quest: “Build Muscle†Side Quest: “I will work out at least three days per week for one hour each work out.†“I will consume 2500 quality calories every single day.†“I will get 8 hours of sleep every night.†Life Quest: Save £54 a month (£9 a week) Join a guild I will complete my 6 week challenge and post my results/grade at the end of the duration. Hopefully I will have earned enough credits to get myself into a guild as everyone knows there's strength in numbers. I've also attached a copy of what my workout routine is, I had to write it down because my short term memory is like a sieve. I feel it encompasses a wide variety of exercises but my one main reason in seeking out the Rebellion was to get advice and criticism from experienced people, so I can work towards leveling up my life on the whole. If you have time take a look and please do let me know if I'm on the right track or simply barking up the wrong tree. Thanks for taking the time to read this post, see you on the battlefield!
