  1. Sometimes we fail to see the forest for the trees....I was taking to much time looking at trees to see the obvious...huge thanks to @DarK_RaideR to pointing out that a battle log may work better for me in keeping up on here...I had one previously but it was dated and no longer fits...so this one is shiny and new! For those new to my saga, I've been here for over 3 years now (January 2, 2014) I've been a Ranger (and everything that entails) since the big restructure of 2016. I am <95% Paleo in my style of eating, because I have RA and it makes me feel better...I'm slightly addict
  2. I am having trouble with my workout. I do Goblet Squats, Pushups, Lunges, Plank, One Arm Row, and Jumping Jacks. I use dumbells for the Lunges as well. (So basically, a heavier version of the Basic Bodyweight. I tried to get a meatspace accountabilibuddy, however still no luck on the Find Your SideKick section of the forums (which also trying to find someone without NF took me 7 years now, and it is still counting). I feel like I haven't lost an inch and feel like I am slipping towards quitting completely and forgetting to exercise, just like I did for those four months. My brother
  3. Last challenge was all about the Epic. Epic Ranger meet-up, smaller races with badass rangers, driving up to the Peak District and hiking the 24km Fan Dance (without weights or a time limit!) with people I mostly hadn't met before. I achieved a lot, I found out a lot about myself. I have strength and endurance inside me, and I can tap into it when I need to. But, with all the races and travel and such, two things happened: 1. I didn't go to BMF nearly as regularly. Some of that was travel, or race recovery, but still, it happened. My daily workouts as per Prime Evo also fell to the
  4. Hi, I am looking for the best way to train at home to lose (a lot of ) weight. I have a treadmill, dumbbells and barbell (W shape). Is there any pointers how to start? What is the best exercises? Thanks in advanced.
  5. Hi Guys, I have had a knee problem for almost a decade now. To be specific, its hyper knee along with knee knocking (10 degrees bend) . Lately is has started to hurt; so, I can't run any more. I have been trying to find an alternative which gives me a complete body work out with low impact on my bones. Being a runner, I hate indoor workouts. So please recommend some cross-fit training alternative which can solve my problem. Till now, I have found a machine called "Me-Mover Fit" while searching online. I would really appreciate your comments on this machine or any
  6. So, this beginning is catching me in a situation where i feel i have the excuse not to worry about health. But i thought about it alot before writing and i realized that that can be said about a lot of points in my life. if i won't face it when its hard, i will find myself even fatter in 5 years. I'm at a week holiday vacation from the army (not U.S.A) and everybody around me thinks i should gather my forces. meaning they wont say anything when I'm eating ice-cream and binge watching legends of tomorrow. But if i wont start now, sure as hell won't start well I'm at the base, far from hom
  7. Hey guys, I just found out about this forum and I'm really enjoying reading a lot of the threads. I just wanted to say that for any of you guys that are interested, I have a YouTube channel where I post fitness/basketball videos, and I just released this video about this certain food that everybody needs to eat before and after their workout, and I thought you guys would like it. If you're interested, check it out and tell me what you think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSoLDF08ZOs
  8. Hello! I'm brand new to Nerd Fitness and I'm excited to do my first challenge. Since this is my first challenge I decided to keep my goals relatively simple. I'm still trying to get the hang of things but hopefully I'm doing this correctly Fitness Strength training 3x per week Run 3x per week Walk everyday during my morning break at work 10k steps per day Nutrition 100oz water per day vegetable with one meal everyday hit protein macros -- 139g per day log all meals on My Fitness Pal
  9. Holy long thread title Batman.... oh wait, Last challenge ended in the classic, do too much at the same time and fail thing. So instead, I've automated some of my plan. DIET: RP Auto-Templates. These basically tell me how much to eat and when. And when the weight stops dropping, then you click the next tab over that reduces the calories. There isn't any calorie counting necessary as long as I follow the prescribed strategy. So far their supplied maintenance plan has worked (kept the same amount of weight but dropped 2" around the belly). This challenge will begin with the n
  10. I have been pretty discouraged lately. I have tried so many diets and workouts and plans and schemes and so on, but I am right back to where I started. Overweight, unfit, and almost to the point of giving up. The odds feel so stacked against me. And yet, for some reason, I can't just quit. I can't accept that I am destined to stay this way. There has to be a better way. One more try.... In a similar vein, I was tempted to just vanish from NerdFitness, to not burden my friends with my angst, but just struggle on on my own. But I need help. I am trying to pull it togeth
  11. Hi! First of all, thanks for checking out my thread! I'm 100% new to all of this, so I really hope I'm doing it right! A little about myself - I am 24, a mom of 2 (6 year old and 6 month old!), a wife of an amazing husband, and a full time office-job-glued-to-my-desk worker haha . All-in-all I have about 60lbs to lose (about 25lbs is baby weight, the rest I had prior), but for me it's not the scale that I'm worried about. I want to look and feel amazing. Right now, it's the opposite! I'm addicted to sugar (no joke) and I'm tired of being a slave to food. If I can break my sugar addiction I bel
  12. 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
  13. I wasn't going to participate in the upcoming challenge because I'm going away on vacation November 14-22, there's Thanksgiving, and I really haven't had a lot of free time after work during the week to get to the gym at all. However, the closer November 10th gets, the more I want to just say screw it, let's do this again. So, with caveats, I'm in for my 6th challenge! And with a Codex Alera theme too! (For those of you who are fans of the Dresden Files, check out Jim Butcher's other, equally awesome, series!) Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat
  14. Alright World. This log will be here to (ideally) maintain my convictions and keep track of my triumphs and setbacks. “It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.†― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings I'm sure this quote is elsewhere on these forums but I really love it as it can mean so much with regards to embarking on any journey. I think it can also have positive insinuation about where the world can take you. I am excited about this quest! For me this is to los
  15. Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements could stop them. I must master all four elements to become Avatar, to become the master of my body! I'm very excited about the progress I've been making so far and want to keep it going. My Main Goal: still working towards a US size 10 jean but ultimately surpassing this goal is in the books. Officially becoming the Avatar may take a little more than being a smaller size so I am also really focusing on building str
  16. Hey everyone! After lurking around Nerd Fitness for the last few months and living vicariously through my friend Priscillia I've finally decided to partake in a 6 week challenge of my own! A little about me - I'm 23 years old and currently work full time in retail. My whole life I've been on and off fad diets, losing weight and gaining weight. As an occasional gamer (not so avid anymore), I love the concept of NF... if you can spend so many hours leveling up your character in game and making it the best it can be, why can't you do that with your own life? Love the idea! I really think
  17. MAIN QUEST To obtain the goal I set out to accomplish when I was 16. I want to get down to 137lbs and feel good when I see myself in the mirror. I want to accomplish this before my 24th birthday. (January 10) GOALS 1) Work out 3x a week (or 3hrs a week) A: Work out Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday - for 3 hours total B: Work out Tuesday, Thursday & TBD day - AND/ OR for 2 hours total C: Work out Tuesday, Thursday & TBD day - for undetermined amount of time D: Work out 2x in a week - for undetermined amount of time My plan this time is to complete the BBWW as well as my own 30 day
  18. REMINDERS FOR ME: Why I want to get in shape I've never felt happy in my own skin. I've always considered myself overweight or fat and hate even catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I want so badly to see my body and be happy with the way I look. "Awh, woe is me!" Right?! In all seriousness, I think creating this blog and treating it as my food diary and progression tracker will help me obtain my goal. I'm tired of waving at someone for a second and my arm waves for 3 seconds longer than my hand. I want to look good naked and I want to finally reach my goal weight that I've been on-a
  19. Straight to the point... Main Quest Lose 12 pounds in six weeks. Straight forward, to the point. How am I going to get there? Missions #1: Log my food intake daily. A = 42 days tracked (+3 WIS +1 CON) B = 35-41 days tracked (+2 WIS) C = 28-34 days tracked. (+1 WIS) #2: Exercise for at least 30 minutes each day. This would be a total of 21 hours throughout the course of 42 days, or six weeks. I will allow missing a day, and being able to make it up the following, or working out extra-long one day to skip the following etc. +2 STR +1 DEX +2 STA A = 21 hours or greater (+2 STR +1 DEX +2
  20. Alright I know I'm a bit late to the party but to help keep myself accountable and motivated I decided to jump right into a challenge! I am only 5'5, I have always been a bit overweight but after starting college (and all the binge drinking, junk eating and bad sleep cycles that come with it) I started gaining weight slowly enough not to notice until a couple of years ago I hit my peak weight of 179lbs. I decided to do something about it, starting playing wii-fit and actually cut out pop cold turkey, setting myself a goal of a month of nothing but water. This actually helped so much. I used to
  21. I still have a few days to hash out my goals for this challenge. I took some time off for school, but I have the summer off. Recently I discovered my childhood karate has some of its katas online. I love my first intro to the martial arts. It was a style called Pukang Tang Soo Do and is based out of Michigan State University. I know one goal is to relearn the katas. My last challenge I relearned my Iaido katas. Now I want to relearn my karate ones from High School, 30 years ago. I'll be honest, I am on a karate kick since watching "Street Fighter: Assassins Fist". I already started relearning
  22. Level 5: Laying Down the GroundWORK. Hello there!!! I come join you from the Ranger forum, as I’m focusing more on lifting than ever before. Got some help from Chairohkey and I’ve got a new program to try out (so far going very well). My overarching goal is to get down to under 15% bodyfat and keep it that way. Currently, I’m around 29-30% after taking a BodPod test about a month ago. I’m about a pound or two lighter than I was then. So I still have 15% of fat to trim, or 30lbs to lose. I’m currently around 204-205 lbs at 5’ 11â€. It’s going to be a long journey, as I hope
  23. So I didn't do all that fantastic on my first challenge. I did complete it so I’m OK with not being fully successful. I really wanted those shoes but alas it wasn't meant to be. I did however learn something about myself and about the nature of challenges. I plan on trying a new approach this challenge. A lot of my challenge will be similar to my first challenge; the difference is in the measurable results. I’m not measuring my diet right now as I’m eating better than I have been each week on my own without focusing too hard on it. I’m still struggling with my unhealthy relation
  24. So, I know this 6 week challenge ends on April 6th, but I figured I'd join now and just carry on over to the next 6 week challenge. So I guess this will really be a 7 week challenge for me! ...and for those of you who can't read my cursive (and for some elaborations) MAIN QUEST Get under 200 Pounds Starting weight (March 27th, 2014): 258lbs PLAN OF ATTACK I WILL: Strength train (be it the tutorial workout or BBWW) a minimum of 3x/week + Cardio/fun/get your heart rate up workout 2x/week I WILL: Take the stairs at work twice daily. (4 flights up to my office) I WILL: Eat cl
  25. Hello all, I am so pumped up to whip this challenge in it's ugly winter butt! This will be my first 6 week challenge, and I plan to conquer! My Goals: MAIN: Lose Weight, feel great! -Do BBWW Monday, Wednesday, and Friday -Eat Paleo for breakfast and lunch, and as much as possible for dinner -Limit "screen time" to just work, and 1 hr at home Life Quest: -Do a Korean Lesson Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday [bonus life quest, because it needs to happen: MOVE OUT!!] Motivation: My son, who is very active and healthy, and I want him to stay that way, and I want to be able to keep up with
