  1. I'm looking to start P90X3 but thought it would be more fun, and frankly, keep me on track better, if I could find someone doing this or something similar. I keep making excuses. I got about half way through the program several months ago but had serious computer problems that made it impossible to watch the dvds, and when that was resolved, well, slacking. I have done 21 Day Fix twice since then though. Me stuff: I've been paleo off and on for several years now but that's always a struggle for me since I hate cooking. Hate it! But, I rarely eat out. I'm not looking to lose weight so much as some body fat, get to where I was at least, and just be in better shape overall. I have some "yoga for inflexible people" dvds I'd like to do in the mornings too but one thing at a time. I did a month long FB accountability group which was decent and I set some goals but it was short lived and I'm ready to get in gear here. I'm already several weeks beyond the schedule I set for myself. I need to stop worrying about starting on Sundays (for some reason I've been pretty focused on it) and having a load of food prepared. I mean I need food prepared but I need to stop using that as an excuse for delaying. After working all day, which is sitting on my keister, I don't usually feel like doing anything when i get home. Which I think is odd, frankly, but that's how it is. And it's going to be cold here soon (NY) so I'll be trapped in the house! I'll probably start a log or something but if anyone wants to poke at each other and try to get some consistency, hit me up!
  2. I have never in my life ever put any effort into losing weight before, except in the last year. It used to fall right off, especially when I switched to paleo. But I guess my yo-yoing has gotten the better of me and now I need some help. Last year I switched back to paleo after a few months of crap and also started going to a boot camp 3-5 times a week. After 3 months, no fat loss. Spoke to one of the trainers that was also paleo, did a week of food journaling, and we agreed that I probably wasn't eating enough; I only stayed at the boot camp another month though. Fast forward to now. I'm 6 weeks into the P90X3 program and have been following the Autoimmune Protocol diet (AIP), which is basically just a stricter form of paleo. Took my measurements when I started and I'm at the highest body fat percentage I've ever been. Now, I haven't done the measurements again and I know I'm only half way through but my pants don't feel any looser, which is the true measurement, and after last year I guess I'm just feeling a bit frustrated. Perhaps my diet still isn't up to par? Below is an example of my daily food intake: Breakfast: Bowl of breakfast skillet - hamburger, japanese yam, summer squash, kale AM Snack: Smoothie - apple juice, two handfuls of mixed leafy greens, half a banana and handful of frozen fruit, tablespoon of olive oil, bit of seaweed, gelatin, and colostrum Lunch: 2 burgers, bowl of mixed veggies sauteed in bacon fat PM Snack: Bowl of soup Dinner: 2 chicken thighs with skin fried in bacon fat, bowl of root veggies baked with a bit of duck fat, and sauteed spinach I drink water through out the day except with dinner, when I drink my kombucha. I'm almost never hungry and sometimes have to force myself to finish my lunch. I'm F, 5'5", 136 lbs, with of about 32% bf Any suggestions?
  3. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. This past year I got back into fitness, working out, and eating clean. In Jan 2014, I lost 20lbs in 90 days (pic below) and gained significant muscle and strength through P90X3, supplementing with a little running here and there. Happy to be a part of the community and look forward to offering my two cents! Jason jfrofitness.com
  4. Well, I took the fitness challenge earlier this morning, and I'm about to complete my first work out on P90X3! This is going to be a challenge for me, but I decided months ago that I was going to stop being afraid of challenges w/r/t my body. There are so many other challenges that I have conquered in my life (school, career, family) - why was I letting myself off the hook in this aspect? See you all on the other side! ETA: Hoo boy. This is going to be hard.
  5. Hello all! I am doing P90X3's "challenge" workout tomorrow for the first time, which is basically 30 minutes of alternating pull ups and push ups. I can't do any unassisted pull ups. I have an assist band, but can only get about 3/4 of the way up, and then maybe 1/2 way after that. Do you guys think it would be better to use a chair or to do their modifier (an assist band looped over the bar)? With the chair, I feel like I use my legs too much, but the motion is closer to what I'll be doing eventually. Similarly, I can do 1-2 regular push-ups, but for this exercise I think I should do a higher number of modified push-ups. I've read conflicting opinions on the best way to modify the push-up, either from the knees or by keeping the knees straight and pushing up against the wall or counter. Thoughts?
  6. Today's workout was Isometrix- Balance heavily routine holding various Yoga Positions for 45 seconds, taking out the flow and keeping all the struggle of each pose. Six Week Challenge Number II: MAIN GOAL: Build on Good Habits formed during 1st Six Week Challenge This is my second Six Week Challenge on NF, only a week between them. I'll be using this Six Week Challenge to push myself further then last time and continue to cement these new habits into my life. QUEST 1: Finish P90X3 Classic 1 Schedule. This Six Week Challenge will cover the last 5 Main Weeks of P90X3 and the Recovery Week before taking the After Fit Test. Using the Accountability I set in the first Six Week Challenge I will continue to stick to the schedule and for the first time ever finish one of these exercise programs. I plan to intensify my work outs, pushing myself farther by using daily goals. Examples: Modify X Exercise Less or Not At All, Add X Number Reps or Take Less Breaks During Cardo. Potential Increase to: Dex (+2 Points), Str (+2 Points), Sta (+3 Points). QUEST 2: Continue To Improve Nutrition. This comes with two parts- 1: Eat 100% Paleo Diet One Day a Week. It'll allow me to try the diet without jumping in too deep too fast. Additionally I hope to will influence my total diet weekly to be even more healthier then I have already gotten it to. 2: In Addition to the above I'm going to try at least Two New Healthy Meal Recipes a week. Figured this will help keep me out of a rut of eating the same things over and over again. Potential Increase to: Wis (+3 Points), Con (+2 Points) QUEST 3: Bonus Round: Add an additional 15-20 Minute Workout that Compliments the Day's Workout every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Sunday's I don't have filming add a 30 Minute Yoga Routine to the day. Figure this will help me push myself further and get closer to getting use to a full hour long routine for Working Out. Potential Increase to: Dex (+1 Points), Con (+1 Points) LIFE GOAL: Finalize Entry to this years Nicholl's Fellowship Screenwriting competition before March 31st. Potential Increase to: Wis (+1 Points), Cha (+1 Points)
  7. BATTLE LOG ENTRY 01: Today I start my pathway to fitness. I'm using the NF 6 Week Challenge as a Catalyses to make the changes I've known I need to make for a long time. In the past I've started exercising and eating better but allowed the constraints of my schedule and job become an excuse. I'm a Cinematographer for Indie Film, this career means odd work hours, long days and not the most healthy foods to eat on set. Every time I would get somewhere- Including loosing 25 pounds after 3 weeks of P90X I would let myself fall off the wagon. I would skip days because a 60 minute work out before or after a 12 hour day wasn't something I wanted to do. Or I would pick up a candy bar on set for fast energy kick instead of fruit. Before I knew it I wasn't working out at all and was gaining all the weight I lost back. No more, I need to break this schedule. I'm going to use the accountability on NF to do this. Additionally I've chosen a better program for my weight loss- P90X3 since it only 30 minute workouts. This I can do. Additionally I will ease myself into eating better. Every time before I would just cut out everything bad which left me craving them and ultimately lead me to have a 'cheat day' which would become days. My 1st Challenge Can Be Found HERE. Today is my first day of P90X3 which is Total Synergistics.
  8. My Fellow NF Members/Rangers, This will be my first challenge as a NF Member and the first step for me in a long time to improve my fitness and over all health. MAIN GOAL: Start Healthy Habits- Kick Start Weight Loss. I'm using these first 6 week challenge to start healthy habits that in the past I have failed to solidify. This will give me the foundation to finally solidify the steps I need to take to loose weight and become a fit person. These habits include but are not limited to Regular Exercise, Better Eating Habits, Being Accountable by reporting to NF on my Battle Log. QUEST 1: Start P90X3 Classic Cycle on January 6th. This is a 6 Exercise Schedule that includes strength and cardo. In the past I tried P90X 1 which had long workouts, average 58 minutes. I had some success in loosing weight but would fall off the bandwagon due to my odd work schedule as a Cinematographer for Indie Film. This new version is 30 minutes only leaving me no excuse. I typically faltered 3 weeks in, this 6 week Challenge will force me to get 1/2 way through the 90 day schedule which will set up the habit and drive to continue all the way through the full 90 days. QUEST 2: Reduce Unhealthy Snacking/Soda Drinking. I will cut my Soda Intake to 1 A Day, replacing my cravings for it with Tea with a small amount of honey. I will vow to reach for healthy snacks- Fruit, Vegetables, etc instead of Cookies and Snack Cakes. My ultimate goal is to follow a Paleo like diet but I'm realistic to the fact that an instant change will lead to failure. I might slowly walk towards this goal. QUEST 3: Accountability: I will Report my Exercise and Eating Habits- Both Failures and Successes to NF via this and my battle log at least every other day. In the past I would hide my attempts to loose weight and get fit and that allowed me to make excuses to not do it. LIFE GOAL: Make Time Daily to do Zazen. I sit Zazen regularly from time to time and I feel more focused and relaxed when I do so. I need to make an effort to do it daily and keep myself in balance.
