My MIL gave me an Everest bag that is hanging in my shop, just waiting for me. But...I have no idea what to do with it. Anyone have any links to videos that would give me an idea of how to put this thing to use?
Unsure where to go from here.
Hey you guys. I'm 5'7.5" and 165. I've lost a pretty significant chunk (112 pounds) in the last 18 months. I'm still about 20 pounds from my "goal" weight and just still just slightly above a healthy BMI. The last few months my progress has slowed to a bumpy crawl due mostly to my losing focus in consistently logging and…
Candid Photo Confessions
So here's a fun fact about avoiding the camera for years. When you get to the point where you want to post progress pictures, you will have to scavenge friends' and family's Facebook albums, old phones and computer files and you may resign to using the same before photos over and over because you can't find that many! Take…
How fast do you have to go to be "running"?
I just finished my first 5k. I joke that I didn't really run, it was more of a slow jog. I typically run on the treadmill because when I go outside I get pain in my left hip (which doesn't seem to happen on the treadmill), so I know the speed I can run at the longest is about 4.2. I realize this is not very impressive and…
Can we talk about lunges?
I have been taking different classes (Bodypump, kettlebells, etc) and all of them invariably incorporate lunges. Many, many lunges. I can't seem to get them right. My legs shake, I lose my balance, I can BARELY get my knee to floor even once. After the class I get DOMS for days. Do they ever get easier? I know the fact…
45 pounds down progress pictures
I started in February at 277. Currently 232. The first side picture isn't at my heaviest, though. I think I took it when I was somewhere in the 260s. And just for fun, another progress picture :)
Dr wants my son to gain weight
He is on a medication that affects his appetite and since our meals have gotten so much healthier he has lost more weight. Does anyone know what I can do beside feed him Ensure or junk food? Also, where kind I find information about calorie needs of children so I can make sure I'm not under feeding him. Sorry, I know it's…
Newbie INO advice about 5k training
Well hello there. I'm fairly new to working out. I started in February with a 12 week program for beginners at my gym. It incorporated weight machines and cardio. Before that I was a useless couch potato (although I did use to run in college many, many years ago). I really like lifting weights but I've found machines…
