AND I also started using the Run Zombie app for iPhone and it is awesome!!! The situation: You’re part of a surviving group of humans that live in an apocolyptic era and you have to make trips out to hunt for supplies (medical, food, clothing, batteries, etc.) but there are zombies running around as well. Once you get back home, you assign the supplies you collected to certain parts of...

newidentity-athlete replied to your post: Personal Training Experience This is awesome! I’m so intrigued to hear more!! Thanks! I will post updates as she progresses. We’ve only done 2 sessions so far but I she has been able to increase the amount of weight she is lifting already so that’s a good sign. :)
Personal Training Experience
So one thing I am definitely interested in doing is being a personal trainer. I’m taking this course right now that prepares one for the NASM exam and I really enjoy it. My teacher is awesome and for extra credit we can train a friend 2x a week for 6 weeks. I am training my roommate right now. She really likes doing cardio on a treadmill, elliptical, or stair stepper machine and...
newidentity-athlete replied to your post: Today Congrats! That has to feel great! Yeah it feels awesome! I can’t wait to start doing deadlifts, benchpress, OH press, pullups, etc again :) That time might come sooner than I originally thought too!
Today was a good day! I felt comfortable enough to workout without wearing a wrist brace and it was fine! I did dumbbell bench press with 35lbs in my left hand and 10lbs for my right hand so my wrist can ease back into bearing weight. I also did some 12lb shoulder presses with just my right arm and that felt pretty good too. Also did some farmer’s walks to get forearm strength back in...

I thought lots of you tumblr peeps would like this :) This page has lots of great ideas for what to do with old race merch like medals, t-shirts, and race bibs. Some ideas: quilts, coasters, magnets, wallpaper, race bags, and scrap books. I think a quilt would be awesome!

femme-enforme answered your question: Online Automatic Diet Planner It’s a good place to start if you’re out of ideas or don’t know what you *should* be eating. Exactly what I was thinking. I can’t really see myself using it but for someone who’s new to keeping some sort of food log it could be useful.
Online Automatic Diet Planner →
I just discovered this site through one of Campbell Fitness’s youtube videos but it seems really interesting Basically you enter how many calories you want to eat per day and how many meals and it comes up with a food plan for you. You can customize it even further by specifying exact macro-nutrient percentages, specific foods you want or don’t want included, whether you want a...
wordjoe replied to your link: Book Recommendation: “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?” I like reading books like these, always have to keep an open mind when it comes to the realm of fitness. Exactly! I loved reading this book. It’s like the mythbusters version of fitness & nutrition. :) What I liked was that if the research wasn’t conclusive, the author would say...

New book review! I just finished reading the book “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights? Fitness Myths, Training Truths, and Other Surprising Discoveries from the Science of Exercise” by Alex Hutchinson, Ph.D. and I LOVED it. This book is awesome!!! It has all of the fitness, health, and nutrition myths that I’ve ever heard of (plus dozens more) and explains what “research science has–and has...
