  1. For those who are new or behind, my main goal is weight loss, for health reasons as well as I want to look good naked, and fit in clothes I used to. I love 5Ks and kettlebells. I'm struggling with this goal because it doesn't get easier when you get older. I work from home, (3 jobs) as an accountant, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. It's very easy to lose track of how much time I've been sitting trying to solve an issue. Not having "all the unhealthy things" in the house also helps. I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle My last 5k (on the 6/5) was a real wake up call. I've let a lot of things go since the pandemic, I could barely move for three days after doing it, I was not trained for it and in retrospect I probably shouldn't have done it. I've decided the best way to motivate myself is monetarily...it worked last time when I hired a trainer, so I've decided to do that again, through an app this time that will write a program based on the equipment I have. I have four days of weights/bodyweight workouts, and I'm making my step goal a priority again. I'm also going to start tracking for the month that I paid for the trainer for, at the end of four weeks I'll see where we're at and if it's worth the expense to keep going, I'm feeling pretty sure it will be if I stick to it. So while it worked to motivate me to work out, I wasn’t really enjoying it. I’ve decided to go back to the 5k training plan I used in 2019 that worked better than anything else I tried…it calls for one day strength training, three days ‘running’ (intervals at your pace is suggested) and one to two days cross training or rest days. Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here. I plan on posting daily to make sure I'm on track where I need to be The Plan...Still more changes Cardio - The 5k training plan that worked in 2019 (3 interval runs, 1 strength training, 1 walk day Rest - Sleep (7 hours a night) - sleep is important Update - Post in thread at least three times a week. - self explanatory Steps - Hitting my 7500 steps a day goal, minimum Track - Food (stay in deficit) track in MFP Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - because fun makes life worth living Duolingo daily Done - 🌈 Not Done - ❄️ Upcoming Events 6/5 - Atlanta Pride Run - Done in 59 minutes 9/25 - Summer Sizzler 5k - virtual due to prior commitment 9/25 - Fall Finish 5k - see above 12/10 - Mud Girl Run in Jax - may change this to Atl. since no one wants to join me
  2. Hey all, I am looking for some endurance training help. I've been doing crossfit for a little over a year now, and while I have definitely gotten stronger, I get gassed super quickly (embaressingly so sometimes). I have a goal to do a "Super Septmeber", which is 15 weeks away, but I am struggling to figure out a game plan for how to build endurance in workouts. Before anyone asks, I know cleaning up my diet is going to help, and I am working on that now. But the workout scheme is got me all confused. Does anyone have any helpful advice or links?
  3. I did it!!!!!! I finished the 5k this morning! I did my training program which was: 5 minutes walking 1.5 minutes running 1.5 minutes walking 3 minutes running 3 minutes running Repeat from 1st run 5 minutes walking (cool down) After that it was a lot of walking followed by random walking/running until I reached the 5k mark.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm back! 😃 Took a break due (from the forums, not exercise) to the whole Covid thing. I was not sick & neither was my family; it affected my mom mentally, however, as it advanced her dementia because routines were interrupted.
  5. Hey, as my gym membership comes to an end in little more than a month I'm becoming more positive that it would be best to get some stuff and start lifting heavy, at home. Now, are there any specifics I have to pay attention to? I've been looking around on internet shops and found some nice gear but I'm not really sure what to look out for. The bench of my desire is adjustable in 3 different heights, 4 different positions (making it suitable for flat bench press, incline and even decline! ) with a max loadabilty of 250kg (conside my bw at roughly 80kg and that's more than enough for some time). The pricing should be fine with 80€ The squat rack is 87x120cm and 7x adjustable in the height between 100 and 170cm, weight 25kg itself and has a loadability of 350kg. There are also 3 holder on lower positions and you can put keep your weights on a mounting. Price 140€ and gummi feet. A 187cm barbell with 30mm. I don't have a lot of space but I was told that a long bar is important if you want to rack up weight. 30€ A neck pad 14€ a chair mat that covers the space where I'd lower the weight ~20€ regular weights 130kg; 170€ I already have some dumbbells with up to 15kg weight that would fit. The overall price would be little more than an other year in the gym and probably more worthwile. Are there things I have to consider purchasing these articles that I'm not aware of? It might be wort mentioning that my max bench press is roughly 85kg, with the deadlift at 80kg and the squat at 100 (although I have to go lower again to get better form). There's probably some imbalance between my lifts, I started squatting and dl-ing quite late. Thanks for any input, I can't provide links to these articles right now so I made the description. And sorry if there will be some inconvenience with the kg/ cm data
  6. I have been fascinated by the sheer size and strength of bigfoot, i want to emulate that to the limit of what's humanely possible. Does anyone know how we could train to be big and strong like bigfoot, as close to humanely possible?
  7. I am wholly and completely terrified of this journey. Not because I could fail, but because I could succeed and then more will be expected of me. Part of me wants to stay exactly where I am. Declare I'm too old and crippled to make these kinds of changes and sit on the couch eating potato chips. Then there's the part that's whispering 'we can do this, it isn't that hard'. I'm fairly convinced that little voice is either outright lying or sugarcoating the truth. I guess I'll find out which. First quest: Diet information. If diet is 80% of success, I need to get on that asap. Traveled to the local library and picked up "The Paleo Diet" and read it. Quest 1 part 1 complete diet knowledge expanded. I'm not sure if that's the right diet for me or not, but I'm willing to give it at least 30 days to impress or deject me. Second Quest: Walk to Mordor I walk everyday usually at least three miles. Now I will start logging my miles to put them on a spreadsheet and see how far I can go. ONGOING Third Quest: Strength Working on the getting the beginner body weight workout in my week at least three times. ONGOING Here we go. How did we do today? Today was not a good day for the diet. I ate all of my calories at breakfast. I ate in IHOP, this was a bad idea. I have also had a slice of cheesecake today which is a Paleo no-no. Maybe I should have waited until the holidays were completely through before I decided to change my diet. Logged 3 miles walking. I'm still meandering my way toward the edge of the shire. At least the scenery's pretty. Today wasn't a strength day.
  8. The journey continues... Last we saw our hero, Wild Wolf aka The Wolfitrator take on demons of unknown origins. The challenge was steep, and while not perfect, Wolf crawled out of the fire more battle hardened then before. Where there was magic and swords before, what lays before you is gun powder and frag grenades. This new journey is unforgiving. One simple mistake, one slip up can mean the difference between a look at your kill cam and a victory dance while tea bagging the enemy squad. Wild Wolf will need to dig deep and become a wraith on the battlefield, something more than mere human. He must become a tactical human. Not only in body but in mind and spirit, too. He must hear the rifle report before the 7.62x39mm round lands home. He must see the enemy before they see him. He must infiltrate the spawn points and take up every power position he can get his grubby hands on. Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing is promised. But success is there for the taking. Stay tuned as our tattooed hero checks his magwell and gets down to brass tax! *Click Click BOOM* Goal 1: Firing on all Cylinders Workouts. Diet. I started a perfect trend the last two weeks of the last challenge and want to keep up the momentum. I still haven't established the discipline I want and so the journey continues here. 3x a week workouts. At least 2 meals with veggies in them. Ready-set-GO! Possible Stat Points: +1 STR, +2 DEX, +2 CON Goal 2: Safeties Off Truth Time: I've been avoiding HIIT style workouts because they suck. They're hard. I sweat a shit ton.... but these are just whiny excuses that the old me would be ok with. NOT. ANY. MORE. On top of the 3x a week strength training, 1x a week (bare minimum) will be dedicated to a HIIT workout. These can be quick too. 10, 15, or even just 20 min will get me so much bang for my buck, it's unreal. Utilize my 35# and 45# KB's as well as the gyms array of KB's to get in a sick metcon that melts the fat and explodes the metabolism into overdrive. Possible Stat Points: +3 END, +2 DEX Goal 3: House Hunting April 1st marks the end of our tenure at the apartments we are in. And so begins a new chapter for the Wolfpack™. We're going to do everything we can to ensure we get into a house! WOOT WOOT! My mom is a real estate agent and has been sending us various houses to look at and the time is NOW to get things rolling. We are about 45 days away before we need to have something nailed down so when I say it's crunch time, it truly is CRUNCH TIME! I don't work 2 jobs for the hell of it. I've had my site set on getting us into a house every since I started working at Costco back in late-July of last year. Heather and I and our kids are soooooooooooooooo looking forward to this new chapter. We need to be diligent. First things first, we need to get our income tax filed. We should have that done in the next 2 weeks. Then... we start house hunting! Possible Stat Points: +2 WIS, +3 CHA Is there a word that exceeds being focused? If so, that's what I am right now. I'm BEYOND focused right now! Thank you for taking the time to support me during this crazy and exciting time in my life right now . Let's rock n roll! Wolf
  9. RES

    RES: FED up

    Obligatory RES challenge disclaimer: At the end of the last challenge I fell off the face of the earth...because I became a grandma!! 😍 (excuse the glasses, I'd drove for 17 hours and my contacts were irritating my eyes) This little one is the reason I will always be broke... Also the reason I disappeared and my goals kinda got put on the back burner for a bit...needless to say she will be the reason I recommit to them because I want to be around for a long time to see her grow up 🥰🥰 6 years ago tomorrow I joined NF...all my challenges are in my signature if you suffer from insomnia 🤣 I've learned a lot about what doesn't work for me but also learned what does...for example I learned a lot last year...2019 was a tough one, I almost lost a lot more than I wanted to, though at the end of it things had definitely improved on many aspects...this year we're moving forward with the knowledge we've learned and earned! My basic structure of last years challenges worked so well for me that I've given them a new acronym and am going to use it again The Plan.... Food: Continue (okay, start again) making the 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. Exercise: I'm following NYAR 10K currently, points for when I do what is scheduled (including rest days) Training plan my fluctuate depending Down Time: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends, or anything else I want it to! UP: As in "Give UP" anything that does not work for or serve me...this year is about being a bit selfish. I'm also going to give up some debt this year, we'll pay off the first major expense and possibly get two eliminated! What would a RES challenge be without some 5k's? January 11th - 1st 5k of 2020 February 15th - Mud Girl Run (My 1st OCR) May 16th - Blacklight Run
  10. RES

    RES: RE-Commit

    A few days following the start of this new challenge will mark the date I entered this world....50 years ago... Not too bad for an old lady if I do say so myself... Recap from prior challenges this year below I've lost a lot this year, a lot has changed for me...if you had asked me before where I would be at this point in my life it would damn sure not be here! My marriage is essentially "married companions" we love each other but more than that is not happening in the foreseeable future...we do enjoy each others company and we are a 'safe space' for the other. I used to think I was interested in dating, but right now I find I'm more interested in working on me...I have a tendency to lose myself in relationships, and I'm a pretty awesome individual that doesn't need to go anywhere just because I'm with someone...so this is going to be about 'finding' and keeping me! I had a goal of losing 50 lbs by my 50th birthday...I got halfway there...I'm re-committing myself to losing the rest, and working on losing the excess rolls that seem to not want to go anywhere! I want to not jiggle when I move and try to get rid of this 'hip dip' thing that I've had most of my life...wish me luck I also had a goal of running a 5k entirely and completing a 10k, neither one of those happened either but I did set a new PR for my 5k...the 10k should be done by the end of the year and I have a goal to train for a 15k in March. I'm okay if I never completely run any of them, I run intervals and that's more than I ever did before! The Plan.... Run: I'm following NYAR 10K training plan currently, so points for when I do what is scheduled (including rest days) Eat: Continue making the 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full. Calm: Three times a week (at least) take time for me, this can be journaling, crocheting, or time to read. This also includes excursions with friends, or anything else I want it to! ommit: (yes I know, spelling, but work with me here) anything that does not work for or serve me...this year is about being a bit selfish. I'm also going to 'ommit' some debt this year, we'll pay off the first major expense and possibly get two eliminated! I have a goal of completing 10 items on my bucket list between now and my next birthday, hopefully by my next challenge the following will be completed: Get Passport Visit Key West Go Parasailing Go Snorkeling (I was going to say scuba diving but I'm claustrophobic so we'll see how snorkeling goes first) Get my motorcycle license (again...been 30 years since I had it) That's one a week...should be a good start! On with the show! Disclaimer, I'm a kinky lesbian in an open relationship. My threads used to have a tendency to get rather interesting (it's been years but I can hope it happens again ) and I have had people unsubscribe because of that...
  11. I am going to manifest the fitness and health transformation that I want, and rid myself of chronic pain, exhaustion, and depression. March 15: 12,295 steps 35 minute walk Kettlebells: 3 x 15 goblet squats - 20 lbs 2 x 10 deadlifts - 20 lbs 2 x 15 swings - 20 lbs 2 x 5 one-arm rows, each side - 20 lbs
  12. So this year ended with the most difficult life situation I have ever experienced. My SO and I experienced a loss that has no words, and this is my best effort to move through the feelings I am dealing with while also trying to look ahead. This week has strictly been about physically resting, doc and boyfriends orders. The SO even came home a couple hours after getting to work on Tuesday to make sure I sat on my ass, which I am terrible at, but I realized my current limitation and am taking them seriously. The plan is to move back into things slowly, starting with walking every day next week near the house. This may just be 10 min at first, it all depends on if I feel weak or not since I really don't know how my body is going to react. After Wednesday I will be re-assessing the situation and adding/subtracting based on how my body does. Weekly Overview: Monday - Made it home from the hospital, still very week from blood loss and cold is still bad. Tuesday - Quite weak, taking out the trash increased heart rate substantially, sat on my ass afterwards like I should have, cold is still kicking my ass as well. Slept in until around 7/7:30 am, had several grief episodes throughout the day, some quite intense. Wednesday - Cried a lot when I woke up, but talked with friends/family and literally cried on the SO's shoulder when he got home from work and felt a bit better. Slept in again until about 7:30, got a few small things done around the house but still winded/light headed if I get up too quickly or move around too much in one sitting. Cold is getting better, and I'm not as sore overall. Thursday - Cold is finally subsiding, and it's the last day of my antibiotics. Only took cold medicine before bed, and pain meds twice today. Still a bit lightheaded when I get up too quickly but I was able to put up the Christmas lights on the front of the house. I stayed in bed very late this morning, getting up around 8:30 am, and laid down when I planned to go to the store and cried. Didn't make it to the store like I was supposed to. Starting to have thoughts on a career change/other bigger life changes. I know some of this is comes with trauma so I am going to sit on these for a while at least before I really start acting on anything. Today (Friday) - Cold is almost gone, still stuffed up with a bit of a dry feeling in my throat/cough. Tonsils are not nearly as swollen from the anesthesia which is helping as well, but still on anti inflammatory (and Popsicle's) /pain meds to help with that and my other pain. Got up right away this morning (6:00 am). Teared up when I woke up again, the mornings and when I am not busy seem to be the worst times for this. Going to hit up the grocery store today and do a bit more light cleaning. I put on my fitbit for the first time since this whole thing started, going to start tracking my heart rate more closely. Weighed in at 180.8 this morning as well.
  13. This seems like something I should know by now and I just never asked. Maybe I don't know because I started running on mostly flat land so elevation gain/loss was like 5m. What do you use elevation gain/loss for? People track it as a factor and I get the vague logic that a positive number is uphill (difficult) and a negative number is downhill (easy), but is there some use in quantifying or qualifying your elevation in your training?

  15. Day One or One Day. Having fallen behind on my marathon training plan (by several weeks), I thought I could use so mojo, so I dusted off my digital copy of Level Up Your Life and, well, here I am. This will be marathon number 2 for me (the first about 14 months ago on my 50th birthday). The first one was a success (in the fact that I made it), but this one is meant to be the one where I am better prepared and enjoy the experience. Not doing so hot on living up to the quest. Hoping that getting re-involved with the forums might help.
  16. I bought a Muay Thai bag. It's 6 ft, 150 lbs, unfilled. Does anyone have any tips, or instructions, or links for how to fill one? I've found a couple of videos, on YouTube, but I wanted to see if anyone, here, had any other good resources for this. Thanks, everyone!
  17. Hello everyone, first challenge here. Little bit about me, I am in my last semester of undergrad. Working towards a degree so I can become a usmc officer, I'm not in an rotc unit I'm going for the ocs route. Outside of my training, I enjoy cooking, video games, old movies (think 90s and earlier), and reading/writing fiction. Major goal 1: become master of martial arts. Major goal 2: become a more well rounded individual Small goals to work on: - Training, train martial arts at least 4 times a week. Two tkd classes, two independent sessions. -rest and recovery, Meditate at least 5 mins daily, a major struggle for me is to make time for meditation. -rest and recovery, do yoga, ayurvedic self massage, or use my foam roller at least every other day. -personal development, read for self improvement at least 30 mins a week, topics of leadership, psychology, philosophy, etc. Second major struggle is reading non fiction, but I know there are plenty of benefits to it. My conditioning and diet are pretty good, see (BB's battle log for details), but I find myself running ragged many days and wasting my time not devoted to training or class work. Plan for recording my progress: This list filled out every other day. Date______ Training (y/n) Meditated (y/n) how long _____ Recovery (y/n) Read (y/n) how long ______ To be filled out in the evening after all my classes. Any suggestions for formatting, or anything else would be appreciated. -BB
  18. Hi everyone!!! I cannot believe that I have never came across this webpage before. Since I am a huge dork and overall fitness/health fanatic this seems like a great idea for like-minded with similar goals. I know it have been a while since the mass effect trilogy ended, but deal with this. I picked Commander Shepard as my inspiration for this four week challenge because regardless if you are paragon or renegade Shepard, she is determined and perseveres. And who doesn't want the body of the elite group of N7's from the Alliance Navy. Quest One - Fitness: Run 15 km per week I want to up my endurance and run a half marathon this summer, Shepard definitely cannot be huffing and puffing behind everyone else. Quest Two - Fitness: 100 burpees per week I have a love/hate relationship with burpees but it is an efficient way to get a quick full body workout in. Quest Three - Diet & Budget: Do not buy food out No post gym smoothie. No lunches from the cafeteria or buying tea while I am at work. I waste my money and end up eating food that is not healthy when I eat out. Shepard has to save money to buy more important things such as armour upgrades or fish for her fish tank and I have to pay off my student loan. Life Quest: Find one positive thing about myself everyday I am hypercritical of myself and Femshep is one confident badass. I am going to write down one positive thing about myself per day. It can be anything from a personality trait or something that I did that day that I was proud of. Best of luck to everyone with their quests - Akaviri
  19. Past attempts to challenges in NerdFitness led to dissapointment and failure on my side. This was due to having no time because of a grueling internship, my work, my study and excercising. I simply had no time to get on here and check in every day. Since my last challenge i passed my internship which frees up a lot of time! After some thinking i realised that NerdFitness is brought me a lot of great things and that i find it a waste that i didn't show up annymore. New year, new challenge, new me. So starting this new year i will get back to NerdFitness. In order for this to be succesfull i will need week write ups, clear goals and some community interaction. Goals 1st january to 4th february These are related to my general health, challeges i set for myself or community interaction. Go vegetarian For this challenge i will go vegetarian for a month. In order to experience vegetarianism but also to force myself to eat more veggies and fruits. Reporting results One of my big issues is accountability. I tried to counter this in the past challenge, this worked for a while but after that it faded. Starting january first i will pickup on the accountability aspect again by sending weekly weight updates to a friend. Since there is a health issue with my weight i set a prety steep goal of 1 kilo per week. If i do not hit this goal i will have to do extra excercise the folowing week in the form of half an hour a day walks on top of my regiment. Managing the budget One of my biggest issues is that i go to the shops to often and pick up to many shit. In order to counter this i am allowed to go to the shops twice a week. No more. If i miss something, well that is shit for me. Diary In order to stay engaged to the commmunity i will have to write weekly progress reports on my thread. I hope some of you will stick around!

  22. Alright I know there are a few people who train and are very talented in Aikido and I need some advice. I used to train and very much enjoyed it. However due to a whole lot of factors I ended up stopping, but I am done with that. I want to get back into it. However I know enough not to just jump back into things. Right now I am in the first steps of turning myself into a bad ass martial artist, you can look at my challenge right now if you would like. Once I complete this one I am going to start on a Defenders themed series of challenges, all based on my goal of becoming like Iroh from Avatar. My thoughts are I will base a challenge off each member of the Defenders using it as a build up to once again practice Aikido again. For more of an idea I tend to make my challenges three goal ones with a Body, Mind, and Spirit inspired goal. I am looking for some advice and ideas on this. Specifically things I can work on or resources to help me. An example will be that I need to work on my flexibility and mobility to get it to better levels, so examples of some stretches that are well suited for it. Things to read/study to get the philosophy of of the style in my head, as I personally believe understanding of what something is based on allows you to better understand it. The spirit if you will. Keep in mind this is not focused on what moves to focus on, throws, etc. To use a cooking example, I am not looking for a cuisine or dish suggestion. I am looking for things like knife skills, understanding ingredients, the roots of a cuisine to look at. Make sense? I sincerely appreciate any advise you can offer.
  23. Ok, so. After the total disaster that was last month's challenge and then completely falling off the wagon this week due to grief (a friend of mine died, found out Monday. Since Monday, I've watched a season and a half of Community, eaten a good 20,000 calories of junk food and fast food, done exactly 3km of walking and that's it for anything physical, stopped setting daily goals and checklists at work, and had like two servings of vegetables spread across four days. I am grieving, yes, but this is not a healthy way to go about it. I need to get my shit together again.), I need to respawn. My goal this month is simple: Each day, set three healthy goals. Can be whatever the fuck I feel like doing that morning. Check them off completed by end of day. That's it, that's all. Full stop. EDIT: Sorry for the cursing. I was brought up an army brat, stress brings it out (along with bringing out my stutter in meat space). I'm not sure what the language rules are here, and I've tried to keep it to a minimum, but I'll try to tone it down more if it needs more toning down.
  24. Well I'm back ... not sure if I ever really left, just sort of stopped being as active here as I used to be. New Forum messed with me some, folks I talked with left, so on and so forth. But hey I'm here. GOAL Complete Hal Higdon Training for my fall half No time goal this time around Feel like I'm starting from zero basically so don't want to stress about time. I'm a bit heavier so much slower than last time I ran a half. Keeping it simple.
  25. Hello there guys,We are a Barcelona's fitness center and we are planning to build our own "functional training / street workout park". Our idea is to buy all the materials and make it cheaper than it would be buying a pre-fabricated park. The objective is creating a park were to attract crossfit, streetworkout and calisthenic users.Since I'm sure that you have far more experience than us, I would like to know your opinion: First of all, what are those elements that you think its should be a must? I mean: high bars, parallel bars, crossfit jump box... On the other hand, we have a punching bag, a climbing rope and a training rope. All we need to do is create the structure for this three. We have searched measurements for high bars and parallels. What we have found is that high bars should have a height of 2,50 meters and around 1,50 meters of width and parallels around 1,50 meters of height. To me, that seems a little bit high. What do you think? Thank you so much for your help.
