  1. Hey yall! I'm new to nerdfitness and I jus gotta say, this is amazing! Anyways... I just made myself an at home workout plan and I have no idea if it's any good or what I need to add/remove. ANY advice would be so helpful! Im doing resistance band and 5&10 pound dumbells for equipment. -4 workouts per week. -Plank& yoga challenge everyday. I have two different workouts and my plan is to alternate them. Circuit A: Tricrp extension Seated calf raises Reverse crunch Donkey kick Chest fly Standing abduction Kneeling crunch Lying hamstring curl Elevated glute bridge Pull apart Wall squat Russian twists Lying pullover Lying hip abduction Circuit B: Glute kickbacks Seated clam Bicycle Superman Tricep dips Pull-through Lying windshield wipers Bent over row Bent over reverse fly Sumo squat calf raise Lying oblique crunch Front/side raise Fire hydrants Bicep curl Is that too many exercises?? Should I split it into 3 separate circuits? Im planning to do repetition circuit and going to go off of my first workout to see where I am physically. Pleaseeeee if anyone has some advice I would so appreciate it. I can't wait to get this started and get back into shape.
  2. Well count this under the TMI category. I've lost about 60 lbs over the last few years. Most of my skin has bounced back, except for my upper thighs. Those damn upper thighs! I've always figured they will eventually bounce back with exercise and proper skin care (not that I'm any good at the skin care part, I'm not really hip on what all that entails beyond soap LOL). However, I am now encountering some issues with this loose skin - boils and chafing. I've had chafing before, and boils before when I was heavier - hadn't had for a long time... until last night/this morning! Woke up with a boil on my inner thigh that hurt like a mother! I've previously seen doctors about the same thing, and was told it's nothing to worry about - it will eventually pop on it's own, etc. But it forking hurts! So last night I went on a looong walk/run with my pup (for me). 5km walk/jog through path's near my house to the dog park, walked around the dog park a bit and then another 5 km walk/job home. The pants I was wearing were decent - running tights, but cheaper - I find their actually warmer, so for our current temperatures it works. However, these pants do fall down a bit when I am running - so i figure that is where I got the chafing and subsequent boil. Now my goals entail running a 5k... so it's not like I can just stop running for fear of chafing and these boils... so I am looking for a solution! To me, that means tightening up that loose skin, so it stops rubbing together so much! However everything I read states the upper thigh as being the most stubborn of skin to get back - and everything is either "do this wrap" or "have this surgery". I'm not up for cosmetic surgery, it's just not me and nor do I think I have so much that it is necessary. I've tried some wraps before - but those were more for "weightloss" as in they got out toxins. However I do hear that there are some home wraps that work awesome for the health of the skin. So my question to y'all is: what is your suggestion to tighten up skin? Do you have a skin care regimen (i hear dry brushing is good too, not that i know what it is), or a wrap or mask you've used that you see a difference with? Specific exercise that helps? Etc.
  3. 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-again-off-again trying to reach since I was 16. Way Back When - Never Again Starting Weight in 2007: 218lbs February 2010: 185lbs Last Year July 2013: 175.6lbs October 2013: 153lbs Current Starting Weight 2014: 179.4 (7/10/14) Current Weight: 177.6 lbs (As of 7/28/14) Goal Weight: 137-145 lbs Waist: 35" Hips: 43.5" Bust: 41" I'm remembering another motivator. I want to be okay with my boyfriend trying to pick me up. Correction: I want to be okay with my boyfriend picking me up. This is it. I'm doing it once and for all. 137 I'm coming for you!
