Some may say I need to be committed, I say if it includes my own padded room that doesn't sound so bad! I have reached challenge number 70...not all of these challenges went the way I planned, not all of these challenges resulted in me leveling up, All of those challenges have resulted in learning something, even if it's what doesn't work for me. I'm a pretty typical type A, I prefer to do things myself, have a difficult time asking for help and sharing my feelings...the older I get the more I realize this is not always healthy. I work from home, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here. I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle. I've been a workaholic as long as I can remember, mostly because of past experience and not wanting to have to count on anyone for things I need. D (my wife for those new here) and I have had many conversations about this. She understands my feelings because she's the same way, but we also know the importance to our relationship for us to be able to depend and count on each other. This is a very long winded way of saying that we need to remember to step away from work and have some fun, riding our motorcycles are a huge part of this for us for right now our every 4 week trips to FL also count towards this. The Plan... Cardio - 8,000 steps a day (includes 30 min on treadmill), and one kettlebell workout a week Update - Post in thread three times a week. Track - Sleep (7 hours a night) and Food (deficit per tracker) Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here Done - 🌈 Not Done - ❄️ I have a Terrain Race planned in May that I do not want to embarrass myself at, I'd also like to get rid of the 35 lbs. that I put on since the last race I did in Feb 2020.
I just recently started a diet that I like to call FA2BA (Fat A$$ 2 Bad A$$) and am new to Nerd Fitness (which I am loving more and more each day). I am doing the Paleo diet and have not really been able to reach the calorie intake each day that myfitness pal and other websites claim to be healthy. Should I be concerned??? My overall goal is to be functionally fit (I have a long way to go) and take Joe's title of best transformation ever. I want to get there the most healthy way. Should I be trying to increase my calorie intake or just keep up with what I am doing. Right now I am averaging around 1300 calories a day, but don't ever feel hungry because for the most part I am eating all vegetables, eggs and chicken. Any suggestions?
A little bit about me. I started NF a year ago. A friend/math tutor's recommendation brought me here. (He was in the assassins guild.) I failed my first challenge a few times and the stress of changing majors, college, and general irl problems caused me to put on a little weight. But I'm not giving up! I've learned new habits and found out that I like working out. There's just something about getting the blood pumping, working up a good sweat, and feeling the rush afterwards. It's like a whole new kind of me time. Plus a cold shower right after a good workout is like the cherry on top. I don't have a one passion. Just a lot of strong interests. I don't like gyms. I'm unhappy with my body. And know what I need to do. I graduated high school at 185lb. I still wanted to change so I ate right in college and walked a lot more. I got down to 160lb. Then I got in a bad car accident and was stuck in a wheel chair for a few months. Now having to deal with the stress of trying to catch up in a major I didn't like in the first place, changing majors, dealing with family and the loss of a loved one really took it's toll. I got up to 195lbs. I'm a college student majoring in accounting. I was doing engineering last year but that was a difficult and bumpy road the entire time. Right now I'm living with my parents since they live ridiculously close to campus, it's cheaper (free rent/meals/laundry), and they still need an extra hand helping out since they have weird work schedules. I've got two sisters. One is a high school senior soon to be college student, the other is an eighth grader soon to be highschooler (I call her Lilith. Maybe I should call her Azula...) My last two challenges have been tough, but rewarding. My family seeing me trying to be healthy, working out at home, eating healthy has inspired them. My dad's is overweight as well but working together we've been helping each other towards weight loss. We've gotten quite a bit of workout equipment from the random spurts of exercise enthusiasm, but now I get to brush the dust off the equipment and have the pleasure of working out at home instead of at the gym. I'm back and badder than every for my third challenge! I couldn't decide if I wanted to stay with the adventurers or join the druids, but in a change of heart I'm staying here. Mainly cause I want to focus more on building better habits versus focusing solely on yoga and meditating. Plus the running I want to do makes me kind of a druidy-scout hybrid class thingy-bopper. I don't know where I was going with that. Nevertheless I'm stoked to get this going again. All new challenge, all new goals, all new conquest.
