  1. Hi, guys I recently switched to the paleo diet and am having trouble finding meals that are easy and paleo. Any advice?
  2. OKAY! I, uh, completely dropped out last time. Forgive me. NUTRITION QUEST: Pack your lunch For a while, I was having a lot of success with packing my breakfast, lunch and snacks for work on Sunday night. I was getting a lot of fruits and veggies, plus my lunch was filling and I didn't compulsively eat those damn 12-flavor gummy bears. I won't be able to pack all my lunches today, but I do have snacks ready and can pack my breakfasts as I go along--so this week the task is to bring snacks and breakfast to work. The remainder of the month, I need to bring lunches, breakfast and snacks, prepped on Sunday. NUTRITION QUEST: I will be more mindful of my fullness levels when I eat. I have been overeating lately and feeling like crap when I'm done. EXERCISE QUEST: I will go on four walks each week. (This is in addition to my 2x weekly bodyweight exercise--I've missed the walks I used to have built into my schedule with my commute). EXERCISE QUEST: I will check out one of the gyms near my house with a guest pass. There is a location literally two short blocks from me, which is the closest I've ever lived to a gym. The commute to and from the gym (plus general social anxiety) has always kept me from regular gym attendance, but with my new second-story apartment, it is time to at least investigate other options. I will also re-read the NF Academy sections on going to the gym. MINDSET QUEST: I will check in on this thread at least three times per week. Last challenge I kept putting it off and I lost my focus--this time I want to remain engaged with the challenge. I am not going to do a lifestyle quest--I have a lot of things on my monthly to-do list that I could use, but I'm feeling like a strong focus on my health is worth it to get back into the challenge swing of things. Alright! That's it for now. I'll be back in a few short days!
  3. I'm currently a student and I travel between my parents' home and my boyfriend's home multiple times per week. Their eating-habits aren't exactly bad, but they're not that great either. At my bf's it's usually me who cooks. I'm also reliant on homemade lunch because we don't have a cafeteria or restaurant near the school and even the supermarket is ridiculously small for the number of people frequenting it. We're lucky we have one microwave for a student-body of probably more than 500. Problem #1: Breakfast It takes me a long time to get going in the mornings, so I don't have time to prepare anything fancy for breakfast. I used to eat cereals or muesli with milk or sometimes yoghurt, but that didn't feel too satisfying and it also gets quite expensive. If I only eat toast with jam or honey I'll be hungry again soon. I currently habe oats with nuts, raisins and yoghurt for breakfast, but I keep forgetting to buy more yoghurt, so now I'm looking for alternatives. I don't really eat eggs or bacon or anything savoury/salty for breakfast except maybe for weekends, and I'm running out of ideas... Problem #2: I'm a sucker for sweets and desserts. I love chocolate and cookies and cakes. I love to bake. But I have no idea how to get a good balance. I'm usually not eating as much as I used to, but I miss baking cakes. But I also hate feeling somewhat guilty for eating biscuits or chocolate to try and get me through a stressful day. Is there such a thing as healthy alternatives that won't recquire lots of fancy ingredients I'd have to get for lots of money at a specialised store? Because I still feel like my soul would appreciate these sweet moments in life. Problem #3: I'm a sucker for comfort-food. If I don't manage to prepare lunch or grab some leftovers I usually just quickly cook some noodles and throw some store-bought sauces or pestos and parmesan in. If I do manage to cook or have some leftovers, it's not unlikely for it to be something that may not be so very ideal as my go-to-recipes when faced with the question of what to cook. Jambalays probably isn't so bad, but Lasagna and Mac'n Cheese and pasta-bakes all have noodles in them again, which is usually recommended to stay away from in this forum as far as I've seen. I know that meal-prep is important, but I'm having trouble making it a habit because I feel like I have a rather limited repertoire of go-to-dishes while wanting more diversity, and also I keep forgetting about it and only remember that I should have cooked when I'm already supposed to be in bed because otherwise I won't get enough sleep and be completely useless the next day... Sorry for the long post, but I didn't want to spam the forum with multiple ones ^^" Any kind of help would be really appreciated
  4. Hey everyone. I haven't been active here lately, but a recent Doctor visit gave me a wake up call. Below is something I posted on my Facebook page, to get input from my friends and family. Alas, there hasn't been much input yet. Some notes about me, I'm not paleo, and never really could be, if I understand paleo right. I consider cheese "free" (particularly mild cheddar and sliced american) because I love it so much. Please help me out with some lunch ideas! ---------------------------------- After my instructions from the Doctor to change my habits, I’m making a special effort to actually plan my Lunches (instead of winging it). Here is where you come in, I need everyone to give me lunch ideas. All ideas are welcome, though the ideal lunch will meet the below criteria: 1) Needs to be Low Carb a. No Bread or Pasta, but low carb alternatives (such as low carb tortillas) are fine. 2) Need prepare enough for a week a. I will likely be preparing this the Saturday before the week this will be eaten, so this needs to be able to be prepared ahead of time, and stay ok to eat all week. 3) Easy preparation is a bonus. Some notes: I do have a fridge, and Microwave available at work. Please give me feedback! Thanks!
  5. Previously on my journey, I was a Pokemon master, who fell out of her universe to land in a strange place she now has to learn to call home. It’s called Hogwarts, nobody knows me here, and since I look kinda weird and don’t fit in, I have to rely on other things to get where I want to be. To quote the headmaster: “Really, Hagrid, if you are holding out for universal popularity, I'm afraid you will be in this cabin for a very long time.†I’m not channeling my inner Hagrid though, pleasant as that would be. I’m currently tiny little Snape, trying to get in with the cool kids, find a new home outside of the old one, a place to call home, and a place in the world. If I manage to do meet my goals, I’ll allow myself to slip into the skin of another person. I won’t do it the GoT House Bolton way, I’ll instead use a Polyjuice Potion. Which is only slightly less disgusting. There will be a lot of goals. But many of them are just things that I need in daily life. Habit building on a small scale. History of Magic: History of magic is boring. So is the school I’ll be going to. But I need to ace this. I’m smart. I really am, despite the decisions I sometimes make. It’s usually easy for me to learn things, but I’m lazy. I’m also not really looking forward to school because I’d rather just work, and because all the other people there will be 16-18. A big issue I need to tackle is the shame I’m feeling, and the feeling of being a big fat fail. Which will be put into big relief when 23 year old me is thrown at the same stage as all those little 16 year old girls. I need to get over myself and not let that put me down, I need to focus on what’s important, bring home good grades, study and make the most of this chance. I also need to not skip school or be annoyed at the classes I have to take (I need 120 hours of typing class. Which seems ridiculous to me in the age we’re living in, but I might just be the only nerd in that class that types more than she talks). I’ll have 2 days of school per week, which really isn’t much when I think about it. So! Goals: Do ALL the homework. Take notes in class & participate. Keep a tidy folder for school. If there’s an exam or other thing, ace it. Rewards: Knotgrass Powdered bicorn horn Potions: I’m eating healthy. However, I also need to eat smart. All the time I’ve put into researching bentos and whatnot can now finally be put to the test. Ideally, I’d like to have a meal plan. In fact, I might just type it up and add it here (since I’m writing this a week before the new challenge starts, chances are I’ll have it done by then). My mom is making all the dinner and whatnot, so there’s nothing for me to worry about. But I have to bring lunch to work/school with me now. I have a 90 minute lunch break, which means technically I’d have more than enough time to go out and buy a pizza. But I’m not earning nearly enough for that, and it’s lazy and unhealthy. I just bought a two-tiered lunch box that can keep food both cold and warm (we don’t yet have a kitchen at work, so no microwave or fridge) and I need to use it. Goals: Make a “Rosie Projectâ€-ish standardized meal plan. Bring lunch with me to school/work every day. (possibly not fridays, as I get off work at 1) Take pictures of the lunch. Rewards: Leeches Jogwarts club: Exercise. Life has just gotten a hell of a lot busier. I’d like to exercise three days a week, which isn’t much when you think about it. Ideally this means gym 3 times a week, but I have to see whether I’ll actually manage to drag myself to gym after work. If not, I’ll have to quit. I can’t afford to pay 50 bucks per month and then not go. Whatever the outcome, I need to do some form of exercise 3 times a week. Even if it’s just 5 minutes of hooping or a quick crazy-dance. Goal: Exercise 3 times a week. Rewards: Lacewing flies Astronomy: It’s a huge pain in the bum, having to get up in the middle of the night to stargaze. Or, in my case, go to work. My alarm wakes me at 5.30am, so I need to be in bed early. This has worked fabulously the past week, as I was always so pooped after work I just fell straight into bed. I need to keep at it. I remember this being one of my very first goals on Nerdfitness, and I function so much better when I go to bed at a healthy time. Goals: Sleep. Sleep a lot. Read more books. Find good books to read (suggestions very welcome!) Rewards: Fluxweed (picked at full moon) Herbology: I really don’t want to end up like Eloise Midgen and have my nose, big as it already is, be off center because I tried to curse my skin pretty. So I’ll go with the traditional route - diluted bubotuber pus. Also known as a good skin care regime. I’ve fallen back in love with a proper routine thanks to those awesome Korean cosmetics I ordered. And more are on the way, straight from San Francisco’s Face Shop. They’re incredibly light, look super cute and are a joy to put on the face. I’m currently using a wildberry foam cleanser, sparkling water apple juicy toner, peach sake serum and mushroom BB cream, all from Skinfood. But, as I said, more is on the way from the good friend that also introduced me to NF, who went and bought me a busload of stuff. I also do face masks more often now, because I bought a kilo of healing earth and can’t not smear it all over my face. Goals: Skin care every morning. Skin care every evening. At least 3 masks per week, ideally one every night (but I don’t want to overload my skin/have to buy even more products, so the minimum will be healing earth mask 3 times a week!) Rewards: Shredded boomslang skin (because obviously that's what you want after you've followed a strict skin care regime for 6 weeks) Hair from someone's head. This looks like a lot at first glance. But really it's just basic survival skills, be it for Hogwarts or muggle life. I've thought a lot about the things I want to do, and challenge myself to do, and things I'd like to experience, do or make. But what it comes down to is this. Habits that I need, desperately, to survive. And I need Nerdfitness in my life to help me with all of this. Because you’re awesome. Grading is as usual in Hogwarts: Outstanding Exceeds Expectation Acceptable Poor Dreadful Troll
  6. As a student, I eat most of my lunches on the go. When I get up to pack a lunch in the morning, it's all too easy to just go for a sandwich or something tht might not be the best option for my body. Any advice/recipes on quick and easy packed lunches?
  7. Hey guys! Does anyone have good ideas for food that makes good leftovers? I'm a student and I work part time, so I'll often have either no time or large chunks of time in which to make food. I'm trying to make more food as it's easier to go paleo and it's cheaper that way, so what are your favourite meals to make that can be made in bulk and reheated? There's a microwave at work and at uni, so that's good, but I don't have one at home, so it makes reheating take more time at night. Things that are good cold work, too.
  8. Greetings! I'm Coquettish Kitten (or Coco Kitten for short). A friend of mine suggested that I check out Nerd Fitness when I mentioned needing a better support system, and I'm so happy I did! I'm pushing 30 (turning 29 in July) and want to be in better shape when I get there. I know you're already four weeks into this challenge, but I didn't want to wait for the next one to get started. Though I am looking forward to the next challenge so I can join the Assassins Guild, I just know that's where I belong!! ( I've been poking around ) MAIN QUEST Get down to 20-25% body fat SIDE QUESTS Workout for at least 30 minutes every day (STR +3, STA +3) Bring lunch to work every day (CHA +2) Stretch before bed every night (CON +2) MOTIVATION No more huffing and puffing from walking up stairs. Feeling comfortable in my clothes. Be in good enough shape to start aerial training.
  9. Hey guys, I have decided to try a loose Paleo diet (with rice and potatoes still in). However, I can't do that every meal. My roommates and I take turns cooking dinner, and they don't eat Paleo. I can cook Paleo whenever I can, but if it's their turns of making good home-cooked food, I won't deny the opportunity. I solve the problem by packing my own lunch! So far, I have packed three lunch. I'll pack five by the end of this week-- skip one week for Spring Break-- and then continue more with this. I want to share the menu with you and see if you guys have some creative lunch packs to share. I also want some recommendations of how healthy the food is. Here is the menu from Monday through Wednesday and what I plan for Thursday! Monday- Cabbage-chicken stir fry with rice, topped with sunny side up fried egg. Orange. Tuesday-[leftover] Baked meatloaf with rice, with toasted collard greens. Orange. Wednesday- Sweet potato hashbrown. Fried sunny-side-up eggs, with steamed collard greens in soy sauce. Apple. Thursday- Bacon, mushroom, and spinach stir fry with baked potato, featuring Worcester sauce. Friday- Still thinking about it... maybe cabbage flourless pancake with bacon? Let's rock it!!
  10. Hey there! I've only recently discovered this diet and I'm eager to hop into it, but before I do so I want to be prepared. I eat bread quite alot, and when I say that I usually eat it every morning and occasionally lunch. However seeing that's gotta go, does anyone have some quick alternatives (and some for lunch if possible)? It doesn't have to be too fancy either. Thanks!
  11. So... before or after breakfast? Before or after lunch? Before or after dinner?
