  1. Sooo here I am again. Last time I tried I succeeded, well okay that was over the last two months... But now that I have dropped 10 pounds I want to lose more, and I figure 6 pounds in 6 weeks sounds about right. My goal- Drop the stubborn weight and hit 125 pounds. My three changes- Add more exercise, up it to 3-5 hours a week rather than under 2. This also incorporates finding a cheaper Dojo because I don't have the money for the ONE dojo near me. Only one sadly so I need to find a better one. Less sugar. I have got rid of 45% but some stubborn desserts will not leave D: Set up a routine. Get
  2. Just what are they, exactly – and how do I use them to reach my weight loss/body fat reduction goals?
  3. So, I’m at the oldest age I've ever been and I figure it’s about time I get my act together. My Main Quest: Drop one clothing size. My Three Incredibly Specific Goals: 1. Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. Technically, I can’t measure how much sleep I truly get, so I’m measuring how much time I spend in bed each night (not doing any other... ahem, activities.) A – 8.5 or more hours B – 8.0 – 8.5 hours C – 7.5 – 8.0 hours D – 7.0 – 7.5 hours F – 7.0 or fewer hours 2. Eliminate processed sugar from my diet. A – Look at you! You didn't eat any sugar to
  4. MISSION: Look *amazing* allowing me to feel amazing contributing to overall happiness. MOTIVATION: Happiness. The ultimate answer. GOALS: Eating good things is most of the battle - 80% no grains; do 2 weeks of 80% no dairy as well as an additional quest / experiment Eating the right amount of good things is also most of the battle - 5 days a week stay under target of 1520 calories / day (track this with MyFitnessPal); on other 2 days/week, do not go over 2100 calories (should be under my daily calorie expenditure) Exercising is the other big part of the battle - Work out 5 days/we
  5. Hello rebels, thanks for reading and for any advice you may have! This is my first post and I'm excited to join the community. I am a 5'8" 30-year-old woman who started out a year ago at about 182 pounds and not exercising at all. A year into my fitness journey I've lost nearly 30 pounds. I now work out regularly (whereas before I wasn't exercising at all), track calorie / food intake (whereas before I was eating tons of junk and not tracking), and for the past couple of months I'm 70-80% off grains. The challenge I'm having now is figuring out how to set ambitious, motivating (as well
  6. Yay 1st challenge! I currently live in China, which has provided me with some interesting hurdles for my diet and exercise. I am hoping that getting involved with a community of others who aren't all the size of my thigh can help me stay motivated and reach my goals! Goals: 1. Lose 15 lbs. I have about 100 lbs. I want to lose, so I figured averaging a little over 2 lbs a week is doable at my current weight. 2. Drink 8 cups of water each day Of the numerous previous diets I've been on, I know my water intake is key. I have already taken a semi-proactive step towards this, but I want to reall
  7. (You can just skip this. I mostly write this for my own amusement ) The dark-blue maned Pegasus awoke when the aroma of food aroused her senses. She tried to open her eyes, which felt heavy and wanted to almost keep her in a deep sleep. After regaining function and able to open her eyes, she looked around and noticed that she was lying in bed with a thick blanket covering her body. The mare was confused, wondering if this was real or if she was dead and it was something that would help her pass on. Breezy yelped when she heard the door click and start to open, revealing a light brown Pegas
  8. Hey guys, I was keeping a battle log on tumblr, but the only people who viewed and liked my page were those awful tumblr blogs with photos of anorexic girls that have links to fat-burner supplements (lame). So, I decided to return to NF to post my daily work-outs and food logs. I'm currently trying to eat mostly primal, although I'm also counting calories at the same time (about 3000 a day). Here's my current training schedule: MONDAY - Strength and Conditioning w/ Heavy Bag work (Noon) TUESDAY - Stronglifts 5x5 (NOON) and then Technique and Light Cardio(PM) WEDNESDAY - Strength an
  9. The wonderful life of being healthy, it's a far fetched and almost unrealistic goal for many of this earths inhabitants. The inspiration felt as you lie in your bed at night, saying over and over that tomorrow will be the day when you wake up and make a change. You research weight loss on google, trying to no avail to discover a secret, an easy way out. But when you see the horror stories that come with the supplements and pills, you finally realize that the one way you will look good in that now to small bathing-suit is pure fitness. Maybe you make the one mistake we all do our first time, y
  10. As I'm typing this now, my heart is beating faster than normal and it enrages me. Literally have been staring at the screen, trying to talk myself out of doing this but here I am typing away. Actually if it wasn't for friends and family pushing me, I wouldn't be posting this in the first place. Apparently being told "you're being selfish by not sharing it" WAY too many times by WAY too many people makes me feel guilty, and can't have that Why the fuck do I care so much? I worked too damn hard to not show it off, right? Ugggghhhh!!! So here's some perspective, back in high school and years a
  11. Hello again, everyone! Last time I started on the last week of the challenge, so this will be my first full challenge In honor of this, and for the fact I'm going to graduate from Stanford during this challenge (June 16th woot! ), I really want to push myself. Last challenge I started 80-20 Paleo, and so far I'm sticking to it. Now I'm setting some new goals: Goal 1: Jog/Run for 2.5 mi or 50 mins (STA: 4 | DEX: 1) I've never done a marathon in my life. I hardly ever run since I'm mildly asthmatic and my legs are angled differently. However, I feel that I use those reasons as excuses
  12. Previously I was a very active person who was committed to the Paleo diet and personal growth. The last six months I allowed myself to escape accountability and fall off course. I am so excited to start this challenge and regain the healthy lifestyle, weight loss momentum, and leveling up journey that I started a year and a half ago! Where I am today- Eating habits: No planned meals that include pure garbage and empty calories. My meals are filled with processed foods, an obscene amount of sugar, coffee, and worst of all foods that I am allergic too. Exercise: Zero strength training/zer
  13. During this six weeks I guess my focus is going to basically be mindfulness. I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy three months ago and I am unhappy with the progress of my weight-loss; it dropped much more quickly after my first. I have lost quite a few pounds but still need to lose 15-20 more. I am not focused on a particular number I just want to find my 'happy' weight: the weight at which my body stays comfortably and I feel confident in my body. I have tried many diets from Paleo to veganism in the past, but I have never been able to really feel satisfied. I think about food too much and
  14. I am now 75% of the way to my long term weightloss goal. This morning I weighed in at 164.8. Started at 195 and my final goal is 155. 10 more pounds to go!

    Kamek's Adventure!

    Kamek's starting stats: Height: 5'9 Weight: 240 pounds Race: Freckled but not a ginger Skills: Oversized legs good for car pushes and making it difficult to buy jeans Fitness Goals: 1. Go to BJJ 3x a week 2. Lift Heavy 2-3x a week 3. Lose 10 pounds to get to 230 (Currently 240) Life Goal: - Aside from one free hour a day, only use my computer for school assignments (this has more to do with correcting my posture than avoiding wasting time). For about the last year, I've worked out at home with a 35 pound KB and bodyweight, usually doing interval circuits. I also boxed for a
  17. Greetings! As is clear, I am new here. I found out about Nerd Fitness through a link to Staci/Spezzy's story (http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011/07/21/meet-staci-your-new-powerlifting-super-hero/). For me, it completely hit home. I'm 23 and from Denmark. I'm studying Medialogy at the University of Aalborg in Copenhagen, and I'm currently finishing up my first year, with exams coming up in June. After that I have 2 months of summer vacation, which I have decided to dedicate to improve my health. I want to see how far I can get before my 24th birthday in December. I don't know what I wei
  18. Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I've been receiving NF updates and emails for a while, and it seems like there is a good message here with lots of practical advice. I've been overweight my entire life, was never into sports or athletics. The first time I tried dieting was when I was about 20 years old over a summer break (which was 13 years ago. geesh) Lost maybe 10-15 pounds and got to 160, and it just came back once I went back to college. Fast forward to being out of college for a year, and I had ballooned up to 183!! I joined weight watchers, started exercising, and lost 27 pounds. I wa
  19. Hey all, First challenge for me as well! I am very excited to really get involved with the NF community. I am doing this to have more accountability in my life and to help me train for the many races that I have coming up this year. I think the biggest thing I want to do with this challenge is create some positive and consistent routines to get healthy and fit. Starting Place 5'7" 240.5lbs I can run about 4 minutes without stopping. (Not very well and not comfortably but it is possible.) Goals 1. Cut candy out completely I had completely cut all candy out of my diet for a mon
  20. Hello dear people! During my challenge, your help and support and input is greatly valued, and even encouraged! There will be pictures, and there will be cake. Simple goals: 1. Log 200 to 400 points on fitocracy EVERY DAY. I will think of a way to grade this so I can motivate myself better, but basically, there is a high goal, and a low goal. I'm thinking of making the low goals the "thing I do because I decided to do", and the high one something I get to reward myself for. In the coming days, I think up a reward. Advice is welcome! 2. Learn how to do a bridge. In style. N
  21. 299! So, Monday's weight in was the first time in probably 18 years or so (it's hard to tell when, really) that I have weight UNDER 300 pounds (I'm 6'5", for reference). This is a great milestone for me and has just reignited my desire to do even better. I've got 50-60 more pounds to go, but it feels like those will be easy after getting below 300. Hope everyone has a great week!
  22. hi, im fearless creek! found this site about a year ago and loved it, now i would like to become part of the community. im a 45 year old woman and have been overweight my entire adult life. 2011 i joined weightwatchers and lost 20 kg on the programm. during that time i surfed the net a lot and got interested in all things to do with health and fitness. then i decided i hated to be part of the weightloss industry and the constant game of dieting and gaining. i made an experiment out of it and tried different aproaches of healthy eating. i ended up with eating mostly unprocessed foods and tra
  23. Since jan 10th up until last month I've lost 14 pounds I dropped down from 289 to 275 along with that during gym class I was practicing my parkour landing (on toes/crouched.) I didn't land correctly so I had to roll forward, my hands shot down and I rolled over my shoulder to my hip like a normal PK roll! It's pretty awesome since I couldn't do it right.
  24. How often can I use a sauna to sweat off a few lbs with out harming myself? I returned from a vacation 5lbs heavier than I left and when I returned I went to the sauna at my gym. After about an hour of sitting in the sauna, cooling down, taking a cold shower, and repeatinga few times I checked my weight and I was down a total of 2lbs. I really enjoyed my experience with the sauna and want to go again soon, but I am weary of using it too much and getting dehydrated. But I really, really want to do it again soon.
