    Somebody with no emotional attachment please check my math. Stats: 5'4" 29 yo female, 161lbs librarian/writer, standing desk and light walking most of the day I am trying to cut down to 21-23% BF, have recently increased my exercise volume, and am having trouble sticking to my calorie goals because of hunger. Currently, I eat 80-90% paleo, trying to hit 1800 calories a day. I don't mess with trying to figure out exercise calories and subtract or eat them back; it's too subjective for me. I do SS 3x a week, followed by 15-20min of kettlebell intervals. On
  2. Hi there from Germany! Guess what - I am new here. I found this forum and page by accident. We do not have pages like that in Germany - at least AFAIK. I am 30 (going to be 31 in a few months), female and have to cats and a boyfriend. My weight is currently too high to mention *lol* no seriously - it is somewhere around 83kg and I my height is about 171cm give or take one centimeter... I started losing some weight a few weeks ago but as I got older since the last time I tried (I was 16 back then and lost about 18kg withing like NO time...) I just realized
  3. Hey guys! Can't say I'm new to NF exactly, I just mostly lurk then disappear for a while, but I'm trying to change that! I'd really like to find a NF buddy that is in a similar life situation as me. Of course I'm open to befriending anyone! But for my personal accountabilibuddy (and me for them), I think it would be awesome to find my "twin" in a similar stage in life. (Is that weird? I'm worried this is weird). I'd love to find someone who is: Female In their late 20's - early 30's Married / in a committed relationship No kids (yet!) Looking to lose 20-
  4. So this is only a "semi-challenge" since I started too late to join the February challenge, but what's the sense in waiting till March to start improving? Quick background: I was about 85-90 percent Paleo last school year, which worked GREAT for me. I felt great, I looked great, I was active... those were the days. During June I stayed on track by lifting weights and running, but at the end of June my weight room access stopped and my therapist told me to stop running. Combine that with the stress of starting college three hours away from home this past autumn, and it's been not-so-good eve
  5. Main Quest: To get ready to train for competing in my first powerlifting competition in 2017 My name is Rachael, I'm 28 and I have three children. I started weightlifting heavy about 3 months before I got pregnant with my second child. What a difference in that pregnancy! We then decided to have a third child right away and so with just a bit of kettlebell training I went through a third pregnancy 9 months after the last - I definitely noticed that hitting me harder than any. My youngest is over 1 year old now and I don't plan on having any more so I'm ready to get serious about training f

  7. Long time lurker, sporadic participant and dedicated student. I have tried doing the challenges, but the timing never works out for me, so I am going to give this daily log thing a crack. My goal: Do a pull up. Then do some more. And get stronger and lose a little weight (goal is to lower bf%).

  8. Hi everyone, Got started this morning after lurking around for a year or so. Broke my leg playing roller derby last year and have been a slob since. Still having trouble with the leg, won't be able to ever skate again, but sick of feeling like a slob. Did the beginner body weight workout this morning, stuff I would have found ridiculously easy back when I was skating had me out of breath in no time. Scary how quickly you lose fitness. So I'm hoping to lose 50lb and generally get fit again. High impact sports are not an option anymore, but hoping I can get strong and build up a good level of
  9. Hello! My name is MaidofRus, I'm a 24 year old woman basically just starting her fitness journey. I've done challenges in the past with varying degrees of success but I've never really accomplished my main goal, which at this point is to be active and exercise regularly. I've just started a full-time teaching job so I'm going to be starting out slowly. Main Goal: Keep Calm, Be Prepared, Be Active Be Prepared: Sleep 8 hours every single night. In bed at 10pm school nights. A: 30 nights sleep B: 25+ nights sleep C: 20+ nights sleep F: 15+ nights sleep Be Active: Exercise three times a wee
  10. Hi, I'm Amelia! My introduction post is over here. This is my battle log! This will record both food and work outs. For the food log, I'm going to log the food on my iPhone and upload the notes here. In the beginning it will be general food recordings to work on accountability and habit creation. My long term goals: Walk more (in the USA, car capital of my life) Do one real push up Do 10 real push ups Run a 5k Run a 10 k Learn parkour Figure out and take parkour courses/training. Take rock climbing classes Learn to like vegetables Stop drinking diet coke. 1. Food - 70 points per week El
  11. Hello! So I have read a lot about Paleo and IF and they both sound great. But for women, there seems to be some downsides, ESPECIALLY with IF. Does any of my fellow female rebels have experience with Paleo and IF, particularly the later? I would greatly appreciate your experience, advice, knowledge, and expertise!
  12. Hello! About Me: About 150cm tall, 43.2kg, 19 years old, Asian. My Goals: Get a flatter stomach Have a more defined 'V' 15-18% body fat. I've read the how to not suck at making goals thing but i'm not sure how to phrase my goals. I've just ordered a body fat caliper so I'm waiting for that to get delivered, but I'd say I'm somewhere around the 22-25% range, depending on whether I've eaten or not. I really want to bring that down to about 18%. I'm really uncomfortable exercising anywhere outside of my room really, cause I feel like people will judge me and I just get really self co
  13. Hey, I'm looking for some advice about my diet. I'm a female climber, who is trying to lose a bit of weight/ get leaner. At the moment I'm not overweight, but I'm at the high end of healthy for my bmi, and would ideally like to be about a stone lighter. I weigh about 137 pounds (I am about 5''4), and I work out for about an hour 5/6 days a week. This is a mix of climbing (at a high intensity) and weights. Sometimes I do HIIT. I don't want to lose muscle, although I guess some loss is probably inevitable. When I'm not working out I am completely sedentary haha (I am a student- I sit down an
  14. After the 6 week challenge is nearly over, i will go on with a daily battle log. My introduction. Main Quest Feeling comfortable in my body, because of weight-loss and being more selfconfident! 3 smart quests 1st quest: running two times or 10km a week (at least) --> focus on 10km under 1h I'm a member of two running communities, nike and adidas. Wanna focus on the adidas people, because a good friend of mine is now a member too. Best would be two runs with them, because there are goodies for a lot of participation. I'
  15. Something I love about hero stories is that typically the main character gets knocked down (sometimes very hard), but they have the resilience and ability to get back up. I posted my story in the Respawn forum, but figured I would start a daily log here to track as I work on getting back up. Since I'm coming back between challenges, my goals here are a bit more long term than the focused 6 week challenge goals. Inspirations: Black Canary - Yeah she has sonic super powers, but she trained in classical boxing techniques, and was the hand-to-hand combat instructor in "Young Justice". She
  16. Ok so what can I say? How about a little fact profile... Height: 5'4 Weight: 10st 4lb Ideal Weight: 9st What I Am going to do to get there: eat more fruit and vegetables, exercise at least three times a week, keep this thread updated every day to keep track on my progress ​Challenge started: 12th March 2015 Well there's my life in a nut shell. Since moving into my own place this year I've gone from 9st 8lb to that and obviously I'm not happy about it! Ideally I want to get fit and loose weight but motivation is an issue. I just come in from work so tired! Oh, I work as a groom on a horse
  17. Like most normal females I have been under the assumption I need to eat little calories to lose weight. I've been dabbling in weightlifting the past 6 months and have decided to take it a bit more seriously and try to become strong. I'm in the process of cleaning up my eating and have a plan of attack, but after reading stuff I'm afraid I'm not eating enough (1000-1200 calories a day) to be healthy. What is a good way to measure you're eating enough without counting calories, and if you are, how much should I be eating. Honestly I'm terrified of eating more and just simply gaining all the f
  18. Hello Rangers! I'm returning to you to achieve one of my most desired goals: Main Quest: Do a push up! Work out: Do a push up work out three times a week. I'm using FitDaily Pushups as a starting place. STR +5 Track my progress: Once a week I want to weigh myself and take measurements. In addition I'm going to write down every work out I do. I'm going to weigh myself Tuesday mornings before breakfast, just to be consistent. WIS +4 No gadgets after 10:30: This is a repeat goal, but one that worked so well. I'm going to stop using my phone and computer after 10:30. CON +3 STA +2 Life Q
  19. Stats: Current weight = 188.6lbs Goal weight = 115lbs Height = 5ft 1in Age = 32 I am looking to join a new gym and to move from cardio machines to free weights. The new gym will give me an induction and workout a routine for me. What exercises should I be doing? I have been looking at starting strength, just nervous to go into the free weights lol
  20. Hi everyone! I'm new hear and have just started my weight training about 2 weeks ago and cleaning up my diet about 3 days ago. I am a 23 year old female, grad student (desk job most of the day), work at williams/booster juice 3 days a week (on my feet for 4 hours), 20 min weight training 5 days a week (15 lb weights-curls, butterfly, triceps, squats etc, just at home exercises) and 40 min ta week cardio (stairs). I am 166cm, 115-120 lbs and eating 2500 calories a day. I am trying to eat a lot of protein ~130g and limit trans fats and sugars. I want to gain muscle and strength and a healthy lif
  21. Hey guys, I'm new here and I'm new to free weight training as well. Right now, I'm trying to figure out if I should gain weight or lose weight. I'm 5'1 and 114 lbs. I'm basically skinny fat and most of the fat is on my stomach (especially noticeable when I sit down). At the moment, I'm eating my maintenance calories as I'm still learning form when weight lifting. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
  22. Hey Guys, I just started a bit of weightlifting and working on pull-ups/chin ups. Even though I''m not lifting too heavy yet, I'm already seeing callouses form. My friend who is "training" me suggested that I get gloves, but I'm not sure what kind I should buy and I don't want to spend a ton of money on something that won't work for me. I'm a female with very small hands and I'm afraid some of the gloves that have a lot of padding would interfere with my grip. I also don't want to go too expensive, preferably under $20. However, if the gloves are literally the best thing since sliced bread
  23. Hello Rangers I'm new here and I never thought I would be in this guild. My name is MaidofRus, I'm a 23 year old female currently living in Russia, and I want to be a dashing warrior, as in I am going to participate in the Warrior Dash in Iowa on August 16. As of this moment my level of fitness is practically non-existent. I don't run, can't do push ups and definitely can't do pull ups. But all that is about to change! Main Quest: Complete the Warrior Dash in under an hour. Goals: Warriors are fast: Run three times a week, probably M,W,F, following the C25k plan. Ideally I will do one
  24. Hello! So I am looking for someone I can talk to over the next couple of months to keep me responsible. (And of course, to bring support to in return!) Right now I am still working off a spinal injury so my start is rather slow. I have 17 weeks until the start of the Fall semester and I want to be in a better place by then. I have four goals I want to hit: 1. Get out of pain (via stretching, yoga, and therapy). 2. Lose 20 pounds. (Estimate.) 3. Eat primal without eating out much. 4. Try to get to 20 one arm push ups. So a bit about me I guess. I'm 22 years old and work as a freelan
  25. So a few years ago I tore a muscle in my lower left back (3rd quadrant, I believe). The first time around, I didn't let it heal properly and developed a mass of scar tissue that left it very stiff. I was able to break it up with a few trips to the chiropractor but the muscle was still very weak and (surprise surprise) I injured myself again last October that put me out of work for a week. Since then I've been working slowly to build my lower back muscles back up, using mostly low-impact exercises and pilates. I really want to start weight lifting, but I'm scared that I might injure myself ag
