Chris Tarly -- 2020 Epic Reboot


Recommended Posts

 

Chris Tarly's Battle Log -- since 1/1/2020

 

have been on the NF forums since July 2013 (6+ years). Battles have been won, some have been lost, knowledge and experience have been gained. Now it's time to start over.

 

I decided to respawn in 2020 by starting the Nerd Fitness Academy (NFA). I'll be tracking progress starting with the basics. This time around I want to get things organized from the start and maintain a clean and well organized battle log to track my progress and notes as I go.

 

BIG DISCLAIMER: To followers and would be commentors, in the spirit of keeping this battle log organized, please restrict comments to thoughtful questions, comments, or words of encouragement about the process on this thread. Please no funny gifs, shitposting, or offtopic/derail posts. You can do this stuff on my challenge threads which I will link from here and/or in my signature. I want this to be an organized record so I can find things later. When in doubt, do not post. Simply using the like buttons/emojis will be sufficient to show support.

 

Victories (large and small):

1/9/2020 -- After little over 1 week in the NFA, my weight dropped 5 lbs. and my measurements all decreased by 0.25-0.5 inches.

Nutrition Plan

 

This is where I keep my information about my nurtition plan

 

23andMe -- A couple years ago I ordered a 23andMe genetic profile. It gave some specific recommendation based on my genes that I integrate into my nutrition plan

 

Spoiler

Top ten 23andMe dietary recommendations that affect weight -- and what I'm doing about it

1. Avoid fast food (<1x per week) -- prepping lunch for work days in advance

2. Avoid Red Meat (<2x per week) -- I'm sticking to lean red meat only for now.

3. Exercise (2-3 times per week) -- I'm sticking to a MWF workout schedule, and I have a daily stretching routine

4. Sleep a healthy amount (7--8 hours/night) -- This has improved greatly since I started the night shift -- I sleep from 4am -12pm every night/morning

5. Eat vegetables (2-4 times per day) -- I eat at least 4 servings every day.

6. Eat leafy greens (4-5 times per week) -- I could be eating more

7. Eat fish (1-2 times per week) -- I include fish in my diet regularly, usually 3+ times per week.

8. Eat fruit (1-3 times a day) -- I eat fruit nearly every day

9. Eat fermented foods -- I need to eat more or take probiotics

10. Manage stress -- I meditate, yoga, and do creative things like write and paint
