  1. Hey gang! I'm going to continue to do fasting this month! I didn't start too strongly BUT i've been doing well all week and honestly I'm excited to be succeeding My goals for this month are 1. sixteen hour fast every night 2. Stay within calorie allotment 3. Get active one day a week! 1. Fasting! So i've been going from 9am-5pm, sometimes ending sooner if i hit my calorie allotment before then! after that i only consume tea and water! People have recommended lemon water but i find that makes me crave food, having any sort of taste on my tongu
  2. Hi! Been doing IF for 7 days strict calorie control and macros. Day 4 woke me early with horrible stomach cramps. I ate carbs and egg with salt to resolve. Day 7 the stomach cramps came back and made me break my fast 3 hours early. Taking women MultiVits. Healthy 5"8 age 30 BMI approx 31 (Shy about weight!) Macros 40/35/25% prot/fat/carbs 156g/60g/98g 1500cal goal Light exercise: 2k jog twice this week Active job on feet Eating window is 13.30-21.30 Please help as I want to continue. I'm not feeling much hunger pangs but the abdominal cramps is awful. I'm worried that I'm harming my body. Has
  3. For those that don't know, each year I bowl in the USBC Open Nationals tournament. This year it is being held in Las Vegas. I bowl May 30th, and 31st. That will be in week one of the next challenge. So all kinds of chaos to prepare for then. I know a few people there that work the event each year, plus I have been bowling with a group of people for awhile now. This once a year thing is basically the only time I see them. This year, I want to make as big of a impact as possible. Last year I bowled in New York, I was 325 lbs. I am currently at 266 lbs. I still have plenty to lose. So I hope I ca
  4. Ok, back in full time for this challenge. I've been kind of floating these last few months. I've also been way overeating, which makes it hard to lose weight I have my Nationals bowling tournament coming up at the end of May. I want to see if I can drop a bit more weight and be in better shape to give everyone that shock and awe. A few of them I only see once a year. Plus, I have been in this rut now, and I need to get out of it. I need to get in some bowling practice too, so maybe this challenge, or next I will start it up. Goal#1: Food tracking and Intermittent fasti
  5. I have been planning on making a battle log for a while now. I have been in and out of the challenges for 3 or 4 years now. I have enjoyed them but I think for now I am done with them. I used to be bigger into lifting and rucking and then shifted into the world of IRONMAN. In 2017/2018 I finished two full IRONMANs struggled through a couple of GORUCK challenges and generally was not too happy with my fitness. This past year(2018) I have kind of been lazy and not focused much on a goal, I did a few sprint triathlons and a GORUCK light. For 2019 my new game plan is to hit the triath
  6. Ivysley begins her journey toward Glacier This September I am going to be vacationing in Glacier National Park for a week. There will be A LOT of hiking involved. My goal is to lose at least 30 pounds before vacation. Springtime is a messy time in Minnesota, so I will be focusing more on indoor activities. I haven't been working out all winter so will be easing into it. I enjoy yoga, so figured that would be a good respawn point. I'm usually more of an adventurer, however, I thought this challenge reflected the druids characteristics. 1) Intermitten
  7. As we enter the world of Anthem, we discover the story of a young Freelancer named Colwyn Plaigue and how he becomes one of the most deadly Interceptor pilots to fly the skies of Mirrus. In part one, we will see Colwyn undertake his first true test as a Freelancer and get a little taste of the action ahead. Profile: Colwyn Plaigue was not born into a family of Freelancers. In fact, he would go on to become the first Lancer of any sort within his families lineage. His Father was an Arcanist, as well as his mother and younger brother. To Colwyn, the ways
  8. . . . . . . . . Yeah, so, back in February, my depression and anxiety got...way out of hand, and i ran from...as many places as i could, really. Things got really bad, and i spent a lot of time wishful-thinking about suicide. Realized i have some resentment issues, some abandonment issues, some undefined issues. Thoughts and feelings about the world, about myself, that i don't know what to do with yet. There was a difficult situation in the family, and i'm wholly convinced it was God who carried us through it. I've read some books (The Screwtape Letters, some historical fiction
  9. Hello! I'm looking for some advice please! I do intermittent fasting on 16:8 with my feasting window being 12pm to 8pm. I love to work out early in the mornings usually around 7/8 - I don't always work out this early but this is my favourite time to do so - I do purely weight training no cardio. I can't say after fasted training that early that I get particularly hungry waiting until 12pm to eat and I drink plenty of water (at least a litre just in the hour training session) so i'm all good on that front. However I don't know if say my training finishes at
  10. After a time of healing, I'm back with a new challenge. It's fairly basic, but I'm quite proud that I managed some successes already: a return to regular meditation (33 day streak on Insight Timer), low carb eating and intermittent fasting. I'm also back to walking, as at my lowest I did not leave the house for a couple of weekends, and used public transport otherwise. The one thing I still haven't gone back to is the gym - and I'm both excited and afraid to do so. I'm also thinking about getting another Personal Trainer for a couple of months (my old one has left the country). Finally, I
  11. Hi! I've popped into these forums a few times, but never at the right time to start a challenge. This time I'm doing it and - though it's been very hard to pick - I think I'm an assassin. I do a lot of fairly athletic yoga, but also other stuff. (And my partner points out that 90% of my clothes are black, so I guess that might be a clue, too). Anyway, I recently started Fightmaster Yoga's 90-day-yoga-fix, which gave me the idea to do a 90-day commitment to yoga, food goals, and hopefully losing 15 pounds over the approximately 13 weeks that will take. I started a week ago and I'm down three po
  12. Goal 1 — Paying the Iron Price: Continue the Stronglifts Program Last challenged I started Stronglifts. I took a break for a week for the holidays. I will continue lifting, reach Week 8, which will leave me with 4 more weeks for the next challenge.

  13. Dear all, today I started a 16/8 fasting eating schedule to lose weight but still have some question I would like to know more about: 1-) I work out at night 2x week and in the morning on Saturdays. The night workouts begin 30 min after the fasting period, which means I could eat something 30 min before the workout but nothing afterwards. Is that ok? Any advice? (Seems to me that the people who workout in the morning also don’t eat immediately afterwards, but they eat sooner after the exercise is done) 2-) I’m considering having the weekends as “cheat days”, ie, still e
  14. This has been a magnificently rich, golden autumn, the trees are not bare yet, and the sun is still shining. The days are getting shorter, though, and winter is on its way, but at the end of the challenge the Sun will return and the Wheel of Life will make another turn. Let's make this last challenge of 2017 a good one! My goals for this challenge are to keep on keeping on: 1. Food Ketogenic diet with regular intermittent fasting. This is to keep the T2D under tight control and to improve general health after breast cancer. No snacks, no dairy either - until w
  15. Hello. im new to this forum and Im also new to water fasting. I am on my 5 th day. I wrote this post because I wanted advice? im not sure if I am doing this fast correctly or not. My main reason for fasting was to detox. But now its become a full fledged detox and weight loss journey. I want to learn all that i can and also fast as long as I can. Sofar its been an uphill battle (sometimes) and easy peasey at other times. On day 1 and two the hardest thing was to ignore my food cravings. I had headaches,dizziness (at times) and nausea.(but not throwing up). day 3 seems like the breaking point.
  16. It has been about a year, since I last did a challenge. Lots of things have happened since then. But I thought I'd try this again. It's neither pretty nor shiny (maybe the next one will have a theme again), but it is a start. Quest 1 - Fuel the body you want (intermittent fasting, lunch prep) 1-3 IF days per week, ideally 2 lunch prep the evening before Quest 2 - Work on your weaknesses (Shoulder Press, Squats/Wall Balls/Thrusters, Pull-Ups/Rows) additional work on free days (not rest days!) Quest 3
  17. What is Absolver? Absolver puts players behind the mask of a Prospect, who has taken a sacred vow and chosen to join the Absolvers, an elite corps of combatants fighting to maintain stability in the world. Monitored by the Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire, players will wander these forsaken lands and encounter other Prospects online in order to learn their place in this world and eventually become Absolvers. Along the way, they will learn new combat styles and attacks, and acquire better weapons, powers and armor. Battles between warriors are an intense r

  19. Back in my soul guild, the Druids, for my 11th challenge. This time of year is so energising, yet I am free of most obligations (family holidays, regular holidays, productive study, choir practice) - there's nothing much to do except go to work, enjoy the long days, and love life! My overall quest is still to improve my health and body composition. At my recent annual diabetic check-up I was told that, based on my HbA1C, blood lipids and blood pressure values, I could be taken off the diabetic register. I opted to stay on, so I would continue with the annual visits, not only b

I've replaced my missing fitness tracker so I can quantify sleep better and report it to my ADHD coach. Also, feel free to harass me if you see this number averaging under 6.5-7 hours. Seriously. Want it fast, want it hard. Goal: Aikido. M

  22. Hey Rebels, I've been lurking around NF for a while now and have become sold on the idea of intermittent fasting. From reading people's stories and the articles, it appears to me that most people generally prefer to skip "breakfast" and start their eating window around 1200 after some mid-morning training, then consume the second half of their day's calories in the evening. The issue for me is that I'm a diehard early-morning trainer, for both pragmatic and romanticised reasons. I'm generally in my lab from around 0745 until the evening so I get up at 0500 to train befo
  23. Last Edit: 4-Feb-2015 After starting this thread, I was informed that what I am doing is known as a Protein Sparing Modified Fast (PSMF). I am constantly consulting The Oracle (Google) to find out more about this subject and modify the diet plan as approriate. As of right now here is how I am planning on executing the diet: I am still learning more about it as the days go on. Based off of what I have learned so far, I will be trying the following diet/exercise plan: Every day my goal will be to consume 140 G of protein. I will cycle 2 days of nothing but protein shakes and fiber powder
  24. Hey guys, I decided to post my challenge in the rebelgroup because I really don't belong anywhere else. I should do more yoga (or another form of stretching - according to my doctor) but I'm really not up to that so I see if it will be possible to add it in there. Goal 1: I want to lift weights again. Not heavy (because I can't) but at I want to do somethign every day. More like a bodybuilding approach but only bodyweight and dumbbell exercices. The Buff Dudes have a whole Home Workout Routine for every bodypart which sounds really interesting. I really wan
  25. Hi everyone, this will be my first time posting in this section of the forum as I just finally decided to get a gym membership, as such I have very little experience weight lifting. So I will start with my stats: Fitness Goals Not just lose weight, I want to also gain strength. Maybe size later on but definitely not a priority right now. Exercise Preference I found the 5x5 stronglifts program super easy to understand and was planning on that being my starting program, but am open to suggestions...
