Hi guys! Holy crap what a big challenge! NERD FITNESS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!! Can you believe it?!!? I can’t!1/!?11 It was the fall of 2014, and I was at Forever 21 trying on cute dresses for work. I remember trying on some in my usual size, 6, and it was just the breaking point. Nothing fit, nothing zipped up right, nothing felt good, I felt like a human sausage and I’d finally had it. A bad dress shopping experience finally put my path back into my own hands as the next day at work I googled “fitness for nerds”. And the rest, as they say, is history. This place has literally changed my life in more ways than one, and I often can’t find the words for how humbled, grateful, and proud I am to be a part of this community, and to be YOUR friend. (Yes, you, reading this, you are my friend whether you like it or not, but I hope you like it~) So along with the usual goals, there’s going to be a special one too... OK PALS LET’S GET THAT BREAD (do the kids even say that anymore???) (also don’t get too much bread just a moderate serving every once in a while ok too much is bad for you) Food Tracking I’m starting with the big one, the down and dirty shit I hate.......... Food logging. I’m becoming WAY more active lately and I really need a baseline of 1. What I’m eating calorie-wise and 2. How much protein I’m getting. I don’t want to crash and burn if I can avoid it OBVIOUSLY, so. Log everything that I eat on the ol’ MFP. GO TEAM Conditioning + Mobility Holy Hannah pals if boxing has taught me one thing it’s that while I think I’m fairly fit, I need some WORK. I’m not used to cardio and being so active on my feet and I need to work on supplementing that - along with continuing my lifting - so I can progress and keep being awesome. I’m going to observe myself and add mobility work into my week at least 3 times depending on where hurts most - ankles, wrists, my entire flesh corpse - and make sure to take care of myself. Consistency I think this is a goal that a lot of us seem to be working on building... staying consistent. I love winter (fun fact it’s my second favorite season) but gosh does it come with some doldrums - like right about THIS time of year. I need to be super mindful about not succumbing to The Lazies and make sure I work out 3 times a week - boxing for one, lifting for the other two, or vice versa if I feel I’m ready to make that change this soon. One week at a time! Write my Story Not just my narrative (although that will pop in here too) but my Nerd Fitness story. I was inspired by our favorite Sloth when a few months ago he posted a list of all his accomplishments he’d achieved since coming here, and I really want to do that too. I’ve come so far in more than just fitness aspects, and what better time to get it all down on (digital) paper to share with my best pals?? Super excited to celebrate this big milestone with everyone and see what goals we are all gonna SMASH!!
