Did it. Got the T-Shirt. Doesn't fit anymore...

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone. A good friend referred me to NerdFitness and I'm stoked to be here. Here's my story.


Two years ago I competed in my first triathlon and performed pretty well. I trained a lot, ate well, and loved the lifestyle. Since then, I got laid off and moved in with my parents. The stress of it all hit hard, and I ate whatever my folks served up (I love 'em, but home-cooked meals aren't exactly healthy). I started taking odd-jobs to pay the bills and had no routine at all, so no exercise. I've since put on some weight and can barely run a mile anymore. I'm sluggish, self-conscious, and downright tired of it.


The good news is things are turning around. I've got a stable job and I'm moving into my own place next week. I'll set my own schedule, control my meals, and have a cardio center inside my apartment building (not much, but no excuses). What I'm looking for is the support to get started and to keep going.


For my NF Character, I'm totally a scout. If it's about endurance, whether on flat land, in the hills, or in the water, I'm in. I'm still working on setting goals (any suggestions are welcome!!!). One outcome I want is to fit into the t-shirt I got from my first triathlon. I prefer bodyweight exercises, but I'm open to learning about weights too.


Well, that's it for now. I look forward to becoming part of the community!

Hey Cider! Congrats on getting your life back in gear!! I too have come to Nerd Fitness to get back to baseline and beyond. I ran a half-marathon in 2010 and was at a healthy weight and have since completely de-conditioned and become overweight yet again.
