  1. What do you guys do for post-workout nutrition? By that I mean the first thing you consume after a good workout. I've recently taken a liking to a quick baked sweet potato in the microwave usually with some greens.
  2. I need somewhere to keep my plant based diet recipes to help me meal plan and cook.
  3. Hello everyone, I've been reading along here for a little while but not as a member so since I can't seem to find an answer / help for my problem I thought I'd sign up and see who has any ideas / tips / we've been there and done it & please don't give up kinda thing. A bit of background and history of me: In my teens I weighed a whopping 92kg at one point. How?? Simple eating delicious stacked sandwiches with 6 different topping plus a few extra helping of chips, chocolates and no exercise. My mom dragged me to the GP, got a major telling off and was put on a hypog
  4. I am 26, just moved back to my (small) hometown and I have anxiety so getting to the gym has been a bit of a struggle. I have driven all of my family and friends (and coworkers) crazy by talking about my workouts and muscle pain and I just want someone to talk to that has the same struggles and complaints. I have been looking into eating better and fitness on and off for almost 10 years and have made quite a few changes but there is still room for improvement. Goals I want to get up early enough to walk my dog every day before work. We walk Saturday and Sunday and every Monday and T
  5. . . . . . . . . Yeah, so, back in February, my depression and anxiety got...way out of hand, and i ran from...as many places as i could, really. Things got really bad, and i spent a lot of time wishful-thinking about suicide. Realized i have some resentment issues, some abandonment issues, some undefined issues. Thoughts and feelings about the world, about myself, that i don't know what to do with yet. There was a difficult situation in the family, and i'm wholly convinced it was God who carried us through it. I've read some books (The Screwtape Letters, some historical fiction
  6. I'm back and ready to do a full, real challenge. Dedicating this one to my favorite "kind of gay" witch. I've been dabbling in some "magic" lately to try to reach my goals, so in the spirit of that, it's going to be a magicky sort of challenge. GOAL 1: MENTAL BANISHING SPELL A while back, I talked about how I was looking into the idea of compounding success. Since May 2nd, I've been tracking the habits I built in previous challenges, combined with a few habits I want to build. I've made it into a game and so far it's working. Really well. It's a game of "How often
  7. I'm trying a couple of new vegan recipes each week and I'd love to get some recipe ideas from other people as well. I plan to post pictures of what the food actually looks like (vs the curated blog photos) next time. Being terrible at introductions, generally, I'm just going to dive in with the dish I made tonight: Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl prep 20 mins cook 15 mins total 35 mins yield 4 bowls Ingredients Tofu Bowl 2 cups cooked brown rice 1 cups shred
  8. I am a little late to start this challenge, but I sort of started it yesterday... when I bought the e-Book of the RBG Fitness Routine. If Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg can do it at 85? Damnit, so can I. But baby steps, yeah? I'm starting a shortened version twice a week, 30 minutes, as I don't have the time to do more right now, but yeah, it's a cute book, and why not? Which brings me to.... TIME BLOCKING. As I get closer to my trip to Japan, my time is more and more valuable. I have two major puppet builds to do this month, a day job to keep on top of, and lear
  9. I want your input on whether the following diet can result in a slimmed down appearence: Breakfast: protein shake (like this one) Lunch: quinoa lentils avocado Dinner: refried beans corn tortillas black olives nutritional yeast hot sauce
  10. Hi, I'm Seraphina. Backstory below... I'm new to NF and I just finished my first challenge. I was so pumped to start the next one, and I just found out it doesn't start tomorrow like I thought. What is this BREAK business? I'm not taking a break from smashing my goals, so I'm here for accountability, commiseration, and camaraderie.
  11. What Would Matt Graham Do? He'd keep on keepin' on. The man can run 100 miles in a day: only way to do that is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. So that's what I'm going to keep doing. Week 0 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday

  13. Hi. A week ago, I was in a car accident. Totaled my car in a state 1200 miles from home, minor injuries, involved another driver, yep. Anyway, I'm trying to move on from it. Yesterday was a really good day, and I feel like I can start getting back to normal now. So I'm here. I'm showing up. I'm not doing a full challenge with a theme and all the bells and whistles, because during this time period I'll be defending my thesis and wrapping up the last semester of graduate school and starting a job hunt. It's going to be busy, and was made even busier by the a
  14. This Padawan passed the first challenge in a Han Solo fashion (started good, went back to scoundrel habits, and only barely passed by showing up at the end). Now, as a Level 2 Padawan, I plan to do it more like Luke Skywalker (consistent throughout) - and learn how to do instead of try, especially getting more sleep. My main quest remains the same - only the race is now one month closer, so it requires greater discipline. At the same time, I tweaked goals to be more attainable (e.g. aiming for 10:45pm bedtime, but permitting 11:15pm as a pass). Subquests serve the main quest and my
  15. First of all, I don't want this to devolve into a discussion. Or actually, it's welcome to devolve into a discussion of mutual respect where we take everyone's point of view into consideration. But the reason I'm starting this thread is that I've given this much thought, and I bet I'm not the only one. So if you're not vegan, why have you decided not to be / not decided to be? I'm going to start with my reasons: I've come to realize that whenever I eat, something had to die for that food. Growing up on a farm, I've definitely felt bad when I watched my Dad skin a
  16. Carrying over my goals from the last challenge: Work out 5 days a week (run / row) Eat in accordance with my doctor's orders (as vegan as possible) My running goal is to get into consistent (re: at least one week) 10:30 1 mile time. Once I hit that 5 days in a row, I will increase my distance from my current 1 1/2ish miles to 2 miles. My food goal is to continue practicing Intermittent Fasting 5 days a week, and to continue experimenting with new and delicious meals.
  17. I am back! I need to work on follow through for this sort of thing! I've fizzled out on my last challenges, but travel had a bit to do with that. Travel exploded my world in the most delightful of ways. What are my goals for this challenge? Be vegan for a month. I've done it off and on, and I just want to try it, actively, for 4 weeks. I rarely do dairy, so it's not too far a jump, but being vegan forces me to focus on what I am eating, and I often am making my food anyway. Tonight starts 4 weeks of meal prep! In the Japanese bento style! I'm going to make little bento for my
  18. Hey everyone, happy New Year! I'm getting ready to do a "Daniel Fast" with a coworker, I was wondering if anyone here was doing one, or interested. Some info here: https://ultimatedanielfast.com/ultimate-daniel-fast-food-guidelines/ Basics are whole food vegan, no sugar, only water to drink for 3 weeks. The premise is that it is what the biblical Daniel ate when he was training under a king, rejecting the "royal foods" he was offered, instead consuming plants and water. I'm not really religious or anything, but it seems like a good way to start the year in health and clean
  19. Hallo! I iz bak. So life kinda kicked me in the proverbial balls. Last time I was on, I was kept afloat by my wonderful RAGErs but I was still struggling with an overall lack of energy, a seemingly unending cold, and was compensating with an increasing amount of junk food. I also went from being one of three people in my department at work, to being the ONLY person in my department - which meant I was working overtime and weekends to keep up with the workflow. I started experiencing dizziness and (according to my doctor's diagnosis - I had no clue what was happening) anxiety attack
  20. Hey guys so I posted this to my 4 week challenge thread but I thought I'd share it here too! I'll be posting the other recipe right after this one so keep an eye out for it!

  21. Greetings and salutations to all of my companions on this road to health! Its been a while since I've been as active as I want, so I am going to make my first goal to: 1. BE ACCOUNTABLE: Come on the forum at least 4-5 times a week and read up on peoples progress, update my own progress, and not be too hard on myself. Now for a little about me. Hi my name is Crafty and I am an alcoholic.......wait, scratch that, wrong forum. lol! Seriously though, I am currently working on getting my certification as an EKG Monitor Tech. I will be reading patients EKG strips that basica
  22. I fell off the internet again. I do that time to time, it's fine. Usually due to traveling, which I am not doing for the next month, so CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I could write for days, because I am a verbose motherfather, but I'll bullet these. I have a big project coming up to overtake the next 7 months, it's called #SpaceJunk, and it's a filmed puppet show. I hope to spend my free creative time building the puppets and set pieces for that show. There's no way I'll be done in a month, I want the build done by mid January, but I also want to travel to Japan for New Year'

  24. Okay so my name is Hannah and I'm an assassin in training. My goals for this upcoming 4 week challenge is as follows: 1.) Complete the Advanced Bodyweight workout 3 times a week and on the same day complete the Begginer's Parkour workout and finish the day off with sprints with corners and straight aways at my old high school track. When I'm not working out I rest and I mean I rest a lot cause I'm going to be tired! 2.) Go to a Yoga class 3 times a week on my off days or at least try some at home yoga that isn't too crazy and will help the soreness and increase my flexi
