Sounds like an IT band issue... When I first started running, I had a similar problem that I was able to clear up relatively quickly with some IT exercises - unfortunately, 5 days doesn't sound like enough time.
I heard that saunas put you into starvation mode... I'm sorry, but a starvation mode reference was the only thing this thread was missing. Well... that and a 'mean people' reference... You guys are mean.
I think it's important to keep things in perspective. I'm a middle of the pack runner... I can train hard and be a slightly faster middle of the pack runner, but that's my ceiling - and I'm OK with that. For me, the perspective comes in two varieties; 1) Am I seeing progress (any progress) on the areas I'm focusing on? Is…
Sadly, most people can't go 15 minutes without looking at their phones these days. Where I work, it seems like the majority of people can't even walk from Point A to Point B without looking at something on their phone. I sympathize, but I don't see it getting any better.
There are 7 billion people on the planet and at least 6 billion of them are self-absorbed idiots - why give any one of them that much power over you? Focus on liking yourself; another person's opinion of you and $2.50 will buy you a cup of coffee.
Same as most everybody here; - Send a FR, then never interact (why?) - Excessive political posting (A - I don't care, and B - that's what FB is for) - Post items that indicate disordered eating / OCD behaviors (I'm not equipped to help)
I think the others may have missed your point. Since you worked out, you're expecting to see MORE than the 2109 steps indicated AND and associated calorie burn? If my take is correct, just wait it out and it will sync up eventually. Fitbit/MFP syncing is rarely done in anything resembling real time. It's frustrating.
Usually, when I encounter recipes like this, the 1/3 cup is for the main preparation and the 1/2 tbsp is set aside for something else as a final touch... like sugar in sugar cookie dough + some extra sugar to sprinkle on at the end... I'll shut up now.
Yes, because when exposed to one person's bad behavior, it's perfectly reasonable to impugn that person's race, gender, religion, political party, culture, and/or bowling team. But if it helps you score some points with the 'ladies' (are we still allowed to use that word?), then by all means, carry on.
It won't be any big revelation, but the changes I made were to weigh and track my food consistently, incorporate some kind of movement or exercise (even if it's just walking) pretty much every day, track my weight and respond to trends. In other words, inspecting what I expect. I lost 60 lbs and have been in maintenance…
You're getting some great advice here - I will emphasize that the greatest bang for your discipline buck is to develop a good sleep routine that you can stick with consistently - including weekends. It really does make getting up early so much easier. Good luck!
Actually, I do. As a human person with agency, I have the freedom of association - which includes the freedom to not associate. Unless you want to argue that your desire for inane small talk trumps that freedom.
You know you live in a pretty great society when the only thing people have to complain about is words on a plate and a half-century old restroom situation. Oh - I almost forgot... manspreading. Forget what I just said - our society sucks.
You have to have a goal. More importantly, you have to have a plan. Most importantly, you have to execute the plan. It's better if the goal can be broken down into smaller sub-goals. For example, if you'd like to lose 50 pounds, a goal of losing 50 pounds is not a good goal. Focusing on the end state is too overwhelming. A…
I'm picking up on the zeal of the 'newly converted', so I'm guessing that you're relatively new to this weight-loss thing. There are couple of handy factoids that might help you see why your venting was unnecessary. - Humans are social animals; food is a big part of that - One cookie, burger, <insert evil food option here>…
Work = Force (weight) x distance (how far you lift it vertically) x # of reps... convert the ft/lbs or kg/m to kilocalories and you're golden. It likely won't be as much as you think it should be, though.
Meal timing has nothing to do with weight loss - I lost my weight while often eating dinner past 9:00 PM. The one thing to keep in mind, however, is that eating later in the evening may impact the number you see on the scale in the next morning (you'll still be digesting dinner) - so while it can impact a weigh-in, it…
