    Default FITCHELLA 2017

    Getting a head start considering this is when we started last year. Hope you all hit your goals for this years Coachella and keep it going.

    Quick question to wonder boardies out there... has anyone tried the Ketogenic diet? I am giving it a try for 30 days (probably longer if I enjoy the menu and results), and was just curious on some meal ideas that are easy and tasty. would love some feed back from those who have tried it. Thanks!

    tried it three times in one week

    Also, it's too early for this. Someone had to say it.

    Thanks for starting this thread, I think we should do it early. It'll leave us plenty of time for fuck ups.
    After Coachella I started weight lifting a couple times a week, walking and running, and I'm in a yoga teacher training course. Good luck on the ketogenic diet.
    Back off war child.

    A really good salad that falls under the ketone diet I just made for lunch:

    - spinach
    - chopped cucumber
    - chopped tomatoes
    - chopped walnuts
    - chopped mozzarella
    - olive oil, salt, garlic salt, pepper

    I am always hiking to "stay in shape" for whatever comes up. Mr. Bonium and I got a permit for backcountry camping in the Grand Canyon-which enables us to complete out third rim-to -rim hike in October. I am really not an athlete,(not buff, gnarly or toned) and am completely non-competitive, but, I always manage to get out and walk (lots of Ca. mountain trails) and stay pretty strong and healthy.(because you never know, you might get that permit you applied for so long ago)
    I think that whatever you do, and like, that keeps you motivated, is the best fitness regime.
    Going back (and into) the Canyon is quite a grand reward! Another one of those things I will do as long as I can.

    Just had some people do that hike for cystic fibrosis, the disease I have. 25 miles in one day rim to rim. Pretty hardcore.

    My big plan now, even though I am still dealing with several issues post double lung transplant, is to become a personal trainer. I spend an hour and a half to two hours a day in the gym and love it. Have spent a couple weeks in the hospital over the last month due to sternum pain and also some stomach issues, which really caused some setbacks in terms of strength training I am doing. Anti rejection meds eat away at muscle at a crazy rate so maintaining is always a struggle. Went from around 165-170 pre transpalnt back in beginning of 2014 down to 135 after. Now hover around 145, so have a ways to go to get to where I want to be, but even with the weight issue I am feeling better than I ever have. Have a friend that runs a successful gym down in Newport and a friend here in Santa Barbara that is a doctor of physical therapy, so a great support network in terms of learning and building my skills. They have a CF team here in Santa Barbara and many patients, which I think could be my niche, working with those affected by health issues like I was since I know it so well from that side, know the limits they face. Looking forward to this new chapter.

    keep at it, everyone!

    my wife and I just started crossfit about 2 weeks ago and are really enjoying it, despite the shit I give to the owner. right now our schedules are pretty packed with crossfit 3x a week and bikram yoga 3x a week (2x for me since I "play" roller hockey during one evening).

    in terms of goals, we mainly want to look better naked and gain more energy/strength.

    I'm trying to get a good head start this year. Bought a new fitbit alta, obsessively tracking meals on myfitnesspal, and started back up on C25K yesterday. I have a tendency to be SUPER into in for a couple weeks and then fall back into old habits, so I'm really pushing myself to stay motivated this time around.

    I'm going on a 10 day trip to a beach resort in Nicaragua in mid-November (with 20ish fit, attractive friends), so my goal right now is to look decent in a bathing suit by then. Then I'll enjoy the holidays, and have until Coachella to undo that damage.

    As much shit as crossfit gets, it is awesome to have people really into some sort of fitness. I am sure you will both see a difference real quick, as long as you don't have a garbage meal plan.

    we usually eat pretty healthy, lots of veggies with grilled meats. being Italian, however, means that pasta is a weakness, so we usually attach veggies to that, too.

    OK, I'm in again. Last year was a total wash. End of a long term relationship and had to sell my tix at the last minute. I used some of my ticket money to buy plates and a bench to replace what he took with him, and I'm ready to get happy and healthy again!

    Ever try some of the pastas made from beans/other low glycemic foods? Some of them are surprisingly good and they would fit into low/slow carb type diets. I'm a fan of adzuki and black bean pastas.

    lol, GPS.

    I'm in a yoga teacher training course, so I've stepped up my home Ashtanga practice and I'm taking more classes. I'm also back to lifting weights and running/walking. I'm trying to stay consistent this year! I'm fed up with yo yoing up and down a size!
    Good work, everyone!

    Getting in early this year as well. Instead of the usual dozen tacos that I can consume during dinner, I am going to do my damnedest to only eat 6.

    Taekwondo, currently a blue belt. I've made progress just by deadlifting, squatting, and bench pressing heavy weights, low reps. Using free weights only. No gimmicky shit. Those 3 simple workouts take care of your body's needs for a nice physique, men or women. The diet was about 80% of it. Listen to the Primal Podcast or Found my Fitness with Rhonda Patrick for motivation and legit info.

    Subscribed to her podcast. Loved listening to her on Joe Rogan Experience and didn't know she had her own podcast until recently. Joe actually has a lot of good guests on for fitness and diet. Also enjoy the ONNIT podcast for some ideas and tips.

    I always get brain overload with Rhonda Patrick on JRE.

    I love my free weights but am tempted by those Onnit primal bells.

    Hey GPS I wore my wife's Lululemons while running stairs the other day as a joke, thought I'd let ya know.

    you guyz, there is no need for all that. Just work yo stomach core ten mins everyday with stretching exercises (I can show you) and make an effort to walk outside. Stop eating so much. Cut out the worthless meal in breakfast, Why you wan have disgusting eggs in your giant gut in morning? Smoke some ganj too, three to nine or more times a week.

    Everyone who meets the bet's goal wins. They pool all the money then just pay out the winners (with DietBet taking a cut). You're guaranteed to at least get all of your money back as long as you meet the weight loss goal.

    Oh, I see. So whoever doesn't meet their goal, their money gets divided up among the winners and the service? That's pretty cool. I will join the next round. When does this start for actual Coachella diet?
