  1. Hey there! I'm Gathrightknight and I'm starting this log to help me keep track of my exercise and keep me motivated! After going through a heartbreaking experience - I'm working to better myself and my life! My goals are to get more fit by doing some weight training and cardio; I currently come in at approximately 125 lb and would like to increase that to 140 with in six months. I would like to increase my muscle mass as well as work on removing some fat around my stomach area. My schedule per week: Sunday - Strength Training Monday - Off Day Tuesday - Strength Train
  2. Hello all, So I've recently decided that I need to make a change. A real one this time. In real life. In real time. Not just in my head, not just as I'm drifting off to sleep making promises about what I'll do better tomorrow, but in the waking minutes and days when those better decisions have to be put into action. So here I am. I used a forum like this to make a major life change a few years ago, and I miss the camaraderie and accountability that was available there, so here's hoping that exists here too A bit about me: I'm looking at 40 in the next 18 months o
  3. Hello! I'm currently in a rebuild stage of my life and looking to get back into a more regular workout routine. I recently moved to Bremerton, WA and started a new job so my life has been in total chaos for the past couple of month. I don't know many people and am looking to get a good accountability buddy via in person.. text.. email.. whatever to continue maintaining a health life style and help keep me on track and whatever other craziness life throws. I work at a hospital so my schedule can be a bit crazy so looking for someone who maybe also
  4. What are your favorite tunes for working out? You're extra brave if you share your Spotify playlist! My favorites right now for lifting: Herr Mannelig, Garmarna You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You) The Notorious B.I.G. x Gon' Give it to Ya, DMX Easy Love, Lauv
  5. Hi! I'm Fedaykin, 25 yo female who loves to read, drink tea, dream and I'm currently interested in zero waste and minimalism. I've followed Nerd Fitness since I read the article on parkour but never stopped collecting underpants and started actually doing anything about changing my life. My reason for finally jumping in is a trio of events: I got promoted (yay, guest service team leader!), I caught and recovered from mono, and I realized that my life consists of working, sleeping, and sitting on my butt reading. My quest for this challenge is to build healthy habits. I will...
  6. Overview / Motivation: I am fired up for 2018. No resolutions. Simply time to recommit to excellence and level up my life. Keeping the same approach that I wrapped up 2017 with but will be increasing my running distance and adding in side planks. I have big aspirations of completing a Spartan Trifecta this year and will need to redefine what I think I can actually accomplish physically. Let's light that fire and get after it! #unleash Main Quest: Work towards building my bench and squats to 250 pounds Side Quests: Average 8 Miles of Running / Week Po
  7. Ok guys, here we go again. I'm fighting again towards a healthier lifestyle. I have not been successful in the past several months, and I've gained back a lot of weight. Time to turn this around. I just got back from a short trip. On Thursday a friend of mine and I drove 5 hours to Kansas City, MO to see Markiplier's You're Welcome Tour. It was hilarious and a lot of fun! We then dropped down to Branson, MO for a couple of days. While there we went to the Titanic Museum, Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum, the Wax Museum, and played mini golf. Tons of fun! A lot of junk food though
  8. Fu*ked up last few days, dad brought a meth junkie prostitute home to live here (im paying rent) told me his pill junkie pot head friend is moving into my room w me, and because I told the tweaker I knew she was on meth and knew she was doing a lot more than housework to pay the rent... ive got 3 weeks to find a new place when studios only come up 2x a month and they are 1,400+ to rent with 100 applicants going for each of em, and a bad root canal, and trouble at work, and a $400.00 speeding ticket... this last week just sucked, ofc I went off diet too. Im so on edge I'm snapping at friends, a
  9. I am looking for some tips and inspiration really. I would like to know what you all do to stay motivated. I feel like a lot of times, I spend more hours trying to get motivated and become that way... And then the next day I lose it. I have reached goals and have made improvements but it is taking so much longer because of my lack of motivation.
  10. Welcome to the Coffee House Your place for a pick me up We've all hit that point in a challenge where you just need that little pick me up to keep pushing through. Quotes, stories and photos to help get through the challenges. Who inspires you?
  11. I could use some help. I do my stretches everyday but it's just been so hot outside I haven't had the strength or motivation to go out on a hike. For those of you that don't go to the gym and do workouts at home, what's a good thing to start doing? I'm trying to get my stomach flatter and not have loose skin on my arms. I just feel alone and it sucks.
  12. I failed spectacularly. I have gained almost ALL my weight back, and I've been sick for the last 7 months with colds, sinus infections, bronchitis, and then COLDS. A nurse kindly said to me "It's very easy to neglect your health." and I realized being sick had become normal. I didn't think I was neglecting my health, I thought I was taking care of my loved ones and being a good family member. Just because I gained all my weight back and couldn't breathe without coughing, I mean... Yeah okay. I neglected my health BIG time. I knew I should be working out, I knew I needed to eat bett
  13. Hey, guys, so about 50 days ago, I looked at myself in disgust, I mean I wasn't obese, but I was overweight for my height and age, I'm 18, 170cm, 82Kgs or 5.5 Feet 180 pounds. I started by altering my diet, not a big change but I wanted to cut out the little stuff before I was drinking a lot of soft drinks, chocolate milk, and muesli bars. After cutting these I immediately saw change, felt better and started to lose weight, I got down to about 75Kgs my target was 72. Since then I started to slip back and am practically back to where I started a few Kgs Lighter. So my question is h
  14. Hi all! I saw the Doodlies already have a thread, but as it's for Doodlies only I figured I'd make one for the non-Doodlies. This thread is for people looking for one or more accountabilibuddies to help them with the upcoming 4 Week Challenge. Post a link to 4WC thread, a brief overview of your goals for this challenge, and what you would like from an accountabilibuddy. Remember: You don't have to have matching goals to be an accountabilibuddy! All you need to have is some pom-poms and a willingness to cheer someone else on through the challenge.
  15. So my profile hasn't changed and I've failed my own quest I mean epic fail.. Here's why It happened, intention good, planning well it's there but not in stone.. My weight was 14.4 and My jeans are tight I've got 36 year old muffin top.. So why have i not got anywhere... I'm lazy I've got my Gearfit2 ( anyone know how to add buddy please help and add lol). I eat well and BAD in less that exual measure more on the bad. So here goes I'm going to do three exercise a week nothing more unless I want to. I'm looking to use a kettle bell for my sheild, weight body weight o
  16. Kuros, through passed down stories that have become nothing more than legend, is known to most as the "Knight Warrior of the Books of Excalibur," but few would know it upon meeting this unassuming hero. Less bulky warrior and more agile ranger, with a mind sharper than any blade (except Brightsword, of course), Kuros is a servant of light, far more humble than the picture this old keeper of lore will paint for you. Always cloaked and seldom seen, it would be easy to mistake him for an assassin (a poor one at that if he is indeed seen), or a scout. Alas, this is not the case. Jack of all trades
  17. So what is this about you might ask? Well, I'll tell you! Just take a seat, this could take a while.... It all started back about 10 years ago. I was in high school and just getting to figuring out who the hell I was. I met this really cute guy and got infatuated. I even invited him to go to prom with me but he declined, said he wasn't interested in going. I was sad but not heartbroken and found another dude to go with. And oh boy...was that ever a disaster! Fast forward a few years and I meat this boy again but now via my boyfriend. He is funny and sweet and nerdy, jus
  18. Hello beautiful people! I'm writing from the wonderful city of Boston, USA. I'm a third year university student studying bioengineering. My weight is always something I've struggled with. I was blessed with a wicked slow metabolism(thx mom) and my parents didn't enforce the good values of nutritional education as I was growing up. My first two years of college were not good, as I carried those uneducated eating habits with me in extreme ways. I started mega binge eating to cope with stress, closet eating, and only exercising minimally which ultimately led to horrific skin, weight gain, and pre
  19. A litter later than intended thanks to general spaciness, but here we go! Since this is my first challenge, I'm mostly trying to set up good habits rather than dive headfirst into hardcore training. Do Better: Take the stairs going UP at work at least once per workday (4 stories). I'm hoping this will be an "easy" one, since our floor's bathrooms are under renovation for two weeks, so we're forced to walk to other restrooms. Eat Better: Meal plan better, and make work lunches the evening before to avoid eating junk out of laziness/convenience. Limit candy to one
  20. Hello again!! Entering into my 2nd challenge here. I'm going to continue on the same path with some adjustments to keep things fresh. Diet Today is day 30 of no sugar which is an amazing feat for me and my major sweet tooth. So naturally I'm going to keep killin it. Family time * 1x family game night * 1x family theme dinner ( get 16 yr old son involved with the cooking) * 2x cribbage battle with husband (tv is too easy to fall into watching all evening after dinner ) Exercise I currently do 2x strength training at YMCA and 1 x NF body weight a
  21. Hi! My main goal is to build strength and stamina, confidence and positive self image by creating and crushing simple goals which lead to good daily habits.

  22. My third kid is due this week... another girl! I've been reading Nerd Fitness for a couple years. I'm still in my twenties, and as a dad I know that if I don't battle for my fitness now, it'll be a much more difficult uphill battle if I start later on in my 30s or 40s. I've got a pair of dumbbells, a barbell, and a swimming pool. Anybody else out there been in a similar situation and has seen success? I'm looking for like a group of fitness pin pals. I'm new to the boards, so you should know the nerdiest thing about me is probably my ocarina. I bought it earlier this y
  23. Apparently it's been a year since the last time i give it a try. Truth be told i needed to get shit straight to be able to do this again. I have managed my depression and i'm so much happier with my life and where i am now. Hey, things i got do to last year: Go to therapy Start to sew Learn moodle and sql Main Quest: Become a Success Story What i want is a radical change, i want to be in the other side i am now. I want to be strong and beautiful inside out. I want to do it for me, to be proud of myself, to love me more than anyother person on earth. If
  24. Three years ago I came to this place, I was aspiring monk, struggling with my diet and unable to keep training routine. And so my adventure with this place begun, you guys gave me amazing support and I was slowly making progress. My biggest motivation was my best friend and loyal companion - Zorion. Everything was going fine, I was reaching my goals, I was proud of myself and the progress I made. And then Zorion died. He died suddenly, when he was running in my garden he suddenly yelped and fall down. By the time I reached him, he was gone. He was only two years old, al
  25. So, December is my least favorite month. I've never been officially diagnosed or anything, but I suspect that I have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder. I sometimes struggle with bouts of depression and the struggle gets much worse in the winter months. Basically I just want to hibernate and have little motivation to do anything. On top of this, I struggle with bad feelings about the holiday season, because I'm not personally that into the whole thing for a slew of reasons I won't bore you all with. Nothing awful or traumatic, just a bunch of personal idiosyncrasies really. But I also feel
