  1. I seem to have an on again, off again relationship with this website. I've never used it very actively, but I am at a point that I am fed up with everything about myself physically. I am in poor shape, I am overweight, and this needs to change. I had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis in 2016 where they left one ovary in. I decided this past Jan I was going to start working out and had managed to lose 15# just by calorie counting. Well, the first day I worked out, with just light cardio, I was in excruciating abdominal pain. Turns out, that ovary is revolting against my body and it needs remo
  2. This is going to sound a bit odd...but... Anybody else getting an odd increase in facial hair since starting? I'm not on hormones or anything, I do take vitamin supplements (especially vitamin D because I'm in the Arctic) but I've noticed that everytime I respawn and clean up my diet and exercise...I get whiskers. Not a terrible amount, but enough to be annoying. Thoughts? (Because beards are cool, but mainly on men and dwarf women.)
  3. Hi everyone, I have never done anything like this before so bear with me. I joined NF a little over a month ago and I truly love the way it brings so many of us odd balls together, to help us achieve a healthier stronger lifestyle. I must confess though, at times I still very much feel like the odd man(or woman I guess if you want to be technical lol) out. You see I am a farmer. I was raised on a farm and continue to leave on one with the hopes of one day increasing its size substantially. I also have a degree in animal science and my world revolves around those under my care. I see a lot of p
  4. I have missed a few challenges this summer and I am coming late to this one, but I am doing a diet change anyway so I might as well do it with some support from NF. I have been gaining weight especially around my waist. Along with the skin issues and other indicators it seems I am having menopausal issues. So I am working on balancing my hormones and optimizing my health. I am using the Hormone Reset diet to guide my through this. It is a 21 day program of elimination of red meat, sugar, alcohol, fruit, grains, caffeine, and dairy from your diet. Basically you eat veggies, eggs and fish.
  5. Oh 2014.... I am quite happy you are over. It was a long year for me, marked by a finished grad degree, a new job, best friend's wedding, summer and winter house guests, and getting settled into Alaskan life. And Meg, can't forget her! But because I was so busy, lifting got put on the back burner and has completely stalled ever since. At the same time, I really fell off the paleo wagon, and while I still pay attention to quality, I let myself slide on a lot of things that experience tells me don't work for my body. I'm sure long time readers of my threads are sick of hearing about lady cycle
  6. *Obligatory Disney Theme* I'm PrincessHeather, and I am a bad nerd.... or at least I have been since about January, or possibly as far back as October. I moved up to Alaska about 8 months ago, and since then I have been preoccupied with things like: searching for a new job, starting a new job, setting up our new home, completing final year of graduate school including a research project, and being maid of honor in a wedding back home in California. A little more background, particularly of things I've been wrestling through in my head for a while now. I have been underweight, and I'm cu
  7. Hi am new to the forums...but no to the Nerd Fitness. Here is my question...I am 49yrs old. I am entering into the new season of a women's life, better known as menopause. I have not had a cycle in three months (normally i am regular) my moods are huge barn doors swinging. I have been on vacation and upped my time at the gym....in the mornings I do weights then go back in the afternoon for cardio just to get my metabolism to budge. I am normally a 80/20 Paleo but tweaked that even more to be 100%. I still very tired in the mornings. After my workouts I feel energized but I return to work
  8. I'm feeling awful this week - my muscles are stooopid heavy, they hurt, and I'm STARVING for junk food...or any food, but a salty sausage pizza, gum drops, and a nap would be heaven. My workouts aren't great and I'm forcing that hard hat on to make it downstairs for a pathetic 25 mins before I flop down like a fish and whine some more. Not surprisingly I'm PMSing and no doubt in a few days I'll be visited by Aunt Flo. Any advice? I've been paleo for a few weeks and I'm really loving it...so I'd hate to deviate/cheat for any reason.
