    Training with a cold. Good? Bad? Stay home?

    My rule is, If above the neck, and not overly sore or achey....you're good to go. But keep the intensity down, and if you don't feel better within 15-20 min or so after starting, call it a day. If once your HR and andrenaline are up and going, and you still you feel lousy, you are doing more harm than good.

    6/2015-12/2016 has been terrible for me mentally and physically. Overworking myself and having nothing to show for it, losing contact with the majority of my friends since they have kids and dont leave the house, getting out of a long term relationship, changing jobs 3 times within that time, moving out of my house in granby into a not so great place, making less money than I ever have since getting out of high school and struggling more than I ever have physicially, financially and mentally. I am at the bottom but the one thing I can fix immediately is my health I guess.

    I am trying to find any other sports I can play other than kickball, softball or golf. I never played ice hockey but was thinking about getting into roller hockey again anybody know any other places besides plainville and groton that do it? Know of any other sports (outside of moto related stuff).
    BMI charts are idiotic. Get a scale that gives % body fat and use that to track progress. 1lb a week is doable for most people. Make small dietary and/or activity improvement each week, and slowly build on each week. Write it down in a log, and when you have a shitty day, look back at the weeks you have done well and not missed workouts or hit your goals. Life is not linear. It is a bumpy mess. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that we are doing well, when we hit a bump.

    Hang in there man. Sounds like a rough stretch for sure. Take control of what you can, your health is a great one to focus on. And you will feel better every day for it. I suck at all ball sports, so can't help you on stuff to try. I like to get outside, run, bike, and just enjoy being outdoors.

    Thanks for this. I find when I am happy alcohol is fine, when I am not, it is the LAST thing I should be doing.

    Don't go to a public place and cough and sneeze everywhere. Going out for a run? Totally fine. Using machines and water fountains and shit everyone else will also be using? No bueno.

    I ended up taking 4 (or 5?) days off the gym due to the cold. I just didn't feel I had enough strength to go. Back at the gym yesterday and whatever little cardio I had been starting to build up quickly went away. Decided I wasn't going to change my plans of 2 weeks straight cardio and then jump into weights... so I went ahead and did a leg day and 10 minutes cardio. Felt like puking. Hoping to build my legs back up so I can do my favorite workout: sets to failure, reps to failure of squats. But that'll come later.

    Anyways.. I must be doing something wrong with my diet. The scale hasn't moved. Not even a little in 4 weeks. I've cut back on a lot and am eating moderately clean.

    Grab one of the calculators online to figure what your normal daily caloric intake should be. Im thinking that since you have now cleaned up your diet you are eating lower calories than before and most likely you are probably at or below your daily caloric intake (use myfitnesspal to track your food the next few days to see what your totals are). Adding in the gym boosting your metabolism your body is just burning everything up. Time to throw more fuel in to make you grow. Once you get your baseline add in about another 500-600 calories a day for a week and see what happens. Unless you are looking to solely put on weight don't pay so much attention to the scale. Get a body tape and measure everything weekly

    I think he wants to lose weight, not gain it.

    If you're not losing weight, eat less or exercise more or both.

    It's unfortunately not a secret, just tough to do.

    Correct. Lose not gain. Though if I recall last I did this fitness thing I was eating like a beast. And I still lost weight. Probably because I was going to the gym twice a day.

    Yes it's very hard to do. I just don't know where to cut on food. I'm going to download the my fitness pal app and hopefully that will help.

    That's what I get for responding too early in the morning lol. So yeah, get your daily intake for a baseline and compare against what your actual daily intake is with current diet and post it up. I would say you will probably need to start by first dropping about 300-400 calories. If I understand you correctly you were just doing cardio and weight was not decreasing? What kind of cardio and what was the intensity? Just remember once you start weight training along with cardio some people may gain weight (dependent on diet of course too). This is not a bad thing and again where the body tape plays a bigger role than the scale.

    Myfitnesspal is pretty eye opening, how long ago was it that you were eating a lot but losing weight? Age will play a role in that too along with the fact that the longer you have been consistently working out the better the oven burns thus the ability to lose weight even though you were eating more
