email@example.com Posted December 16, 2011 Report Share Posted December 16, 2011 http://nerdfitness.com/community/showthread.php?6727-Traveling-and-trying-to-maintain!That was my original post. I realized I was probably in the entirely wrong boards and my apologies! I've been keeping track of my workouts on NF for a few days now, but have been working out for 18 months now (army life..)A sum up of my story is that I graduated an army school in florida and have just traveled (by car) back up to Massachusetts. I've been struggling with maintaining a good diet (not strictly Paleo, but working towards it hopefully!) and just made the goal to eliminate coffee all together.. while slowly eliminating energy drinks (I have about 4 a week) as well.Now I am home and trying out a temporary lifestyle (if all goes well) and I will be moving to South Korea for a year as a military duty station. Its hard to get the always on the move/always moving aspects out of my head.. I'm home for 6 months at least, but I feel like I'm leaving again in a week. Its a weird feeling. Hope I can get back into the swing of things.As (and if) you're reading this, please give me insight of whether its a good/solid/steady/what-have-you routine, and please be strict on my eating habits.I'll have you know I ate alot today, and I'm STILL hungry. I have this problem alot. I don't know whether to blame it on a fast metabolism (which I've had through my youth, don't know if its returning because of my working out?) or lack of eating the right things. If you read my previous posts on the muscle boards, you can see that I'm not eating terribly, but I don't know what to add to my diet to make me feel full for more than 2 hours.Oh, and I'm a vegetarian. Yep I cursed myself about 9 years ago. I took back fish after giving it up for 3 years, but I don't eat much. I eat tuna packs almost on a daily basis and have been adding fish fillets to my diet as often as I can. i LOVE sushi.. so don't hate on me for having it once and a while! Also, I think I'm going to go shopping for some shrimp to add to my veggies!Thanks for reading! I know its long, but it's almost like I'm blogging or writing a journal, haha. EDIT to original post 9/26/2013------- Hey guys. I don't want to post a whole new thread so I'm just going to edit this one and carry on (like nothing every happened) with my training. So if you want to skip through this boring stuff and get to the current stuff I believe it stops on page 22. So this thread started when I was in Florida finishing up a military school of Explosive Ordnance Disposal. I have since graduated and am an EOD Tech in the National Guard in MA. When I was in school I met my husband and we got married in January 2011. A month after we got married he got stationed in South Korea (if you read through the blog you'll see my travels and training through out) for a year. He got back in February 2013 and we drove across the country and now live in WA. Currently, I am working my way through the hiring process of getting a job with a local Police Department, and flying back to MA every now and then for training. Since we moved here, it's been hard to keep up with a regular workout routine. Shortly after we got here, I got offered a UXO Tech job in Guam, took it, and lived there digging holes by hand in the 110 degree 100% humidity weather for 2 months. Before I left, I was DLing 225, squatting 210, PC 135, and snatching ~100. I weighed 155. I got home and weighed 140. There was no gym there and after a 12 hour day it was hard to build the willpower to go for a run in the heat, although towards the end I did. I ate only when I was hungry (cause heat makes people not hungry), and I admittedly drank way too much. After that, I got home and had to go to another month of training back in MA that I didn't lift and rarely ran and drank too much. I got home again and I think I've been home fairly routinely ever since. I fly back to MA now and then but not enough to really screw with my lifting/routine. So this year has been fairly downhill. I had the best time of my life in Guam, though, and I definitely needed it. This year I turned 21. Needless to say I have grown a gross liking to drinking and its not great. Sometimes I smoke cigarettes socially, something that I've never done before. I guess what I'm trying to get to is the fact that I've grown further into my depression and its harder to get out, hence why I haven't been on. My night terrors got worse (had them in Guam, at home, here in WA, and even in barracks while training), and when I'm here in WA I can't sleep. I finally went to my doctor who prescribed me anxiety medication to help me fall asleep/when I needed it, since I told her about my alcohol problems that I felt were growing. This also stemmed from my social anxiety that I've had all my life. Anyways, sob story over, I want to start crawling out of my hole and get back to where I was. I'm still working out/lifting 5-6 days a week, but focusing more on staying lean/volume work/and running speed. I do alot more body weight stuff now and haven't gone heavy in a while. I have a PT test coming up for my unit and the Police Academy (a whole 'nother story), and after those I'm hoping to start really lifting heavy again. I want to keep my weight down as much as I can so my pushups, situps, sprint, and run can all be at their prime. I've been training these steadily for the last month or two, and I'll elaborate later on the blog where I start to track my workouts again. The biggest thing lately has been diet. I do good, granola bar before the gym, eggs/something at noon, then try to not eat till I'm hungry/dinner, but its hard when I don't really care as much as I do. Night is the worst because I usually have a few beers and eat too much after dinner. Its also hard when i'm making dinner for my husband too, and he has no desire to eat well (he's naturally lean and muscular, football player for umpteen years). So this is the story of my last year and the hole that I've dug (atleast a brief overview), and I'm hoping to dig myself out. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/6814-moved-from-the-muscle-boards-trying-to-maintain/page-22 <----- Link to most current entry.
