    CleBkPkr reacted to Crabapple in Just starting out!   
    I've been working on this for at least 8 weeks, but as far as the app goes I'm still fighting with week 4. That week has you run 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 5 minutes. I run, probably, about a minute and a half, with comparable breaks. Some of where I run is uphill, so my flat or downhill runs are a little bit longer. 
    But I am making headway. A few days ago I corrected my form, and I think I'm going to make better progress.

    Yes. Go to settings and scroll all the way to near the bottom. There should be a button that says reset.
    If you ever want to reset just one day or a few days, all you have to do is a long press on the day. What I mean is, where the check mark is, saying that you've done the day, that's where you press and hold down. A little box will pop up asking if you're sure you want to reset the day.

    Hey there Stacy. The time limit is “as long as you need”! I promise you, there are plenty of us repeating weeks many times over. Just keep moving, you will get there!

    It was very helpful, to be sure, to know that we aren't the only ones who have a difficult time just zipping through the program.

    So, you two have helped me in the posts you write on this forum. I've decided to stick with the 3, 5, 3,5 week (week 4) for a while and see if extending the walking helps me get past this block I think I have.

    CleBkPkr got a reaction from reginacordium in Week 3 Day 3 ugh   
    W3D3 with a slight change. One thing I was having trouble with was the second 3 minute run. This was my sticking point. Today I decided to continue my last 90 second walk for another 60 seconds leaving me with 2 minutes to run instead of 3. It helped! Like tremendously! Just that little change and I was able to finish without walking that last 3 minute run. Another day or two like this and I’m moving to week 4.

    Have a great weekend! It’s raining here so I’m headed for the treadmill. I really want to get past week 4 but I think it’s going to be week 3 for a while. Just have to keep reminding myself it’s ok!

    Have been giving this foam roller a whirl. I have to say I do love it! It definitely has helped. And, when I roll over it for my back I can hear it popping lol It has helped my calf and hamstring muscles... I'll keep using it and see how things go over a longer period of time. For right now I am happy with it!

    CleBkPkr reacted to Crabapple in I weight 300 lbs and want to slim to 230-240. Any recommendations   
    This reminds me, and I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner. In my experience, keto and intermittent fasting are the best ways to lose weight.
    Keto is low carb, which means cutting out starches like bread and potatoes, and sugary foods. Eating fat is desirable because you are training your body to run on the fat you have, but fat eaten with carbs can prevent fast loss. For example, bacon, eggs, and sausages for breakfast is good. Add toast or french toast, and you've gotten off keto and have blocked weight loss.
    I've had better luck with intermittent fasting (IF) than keto, though keto certainly helped (I couldn't eat all the fat and animal protein recommended, though I have since discovered that amaranth and buckwheat have all 8 essential amino acids; but I haven't looked to see if they are low carb. Right now, I'm involved in the body ecology diet, which is for health and healing the gut, not weight loss).
    Intermittent fasting is great! You choose your eating window and fasting window. For example, my favorite eating window (also called "feeding window" but that makes me think of a horse instead of a human) is 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., though sometimes I've stopped eating at 6 p.m. Of course, you eat good food during the eating window. Feasting on sugary or high carb foods may not completely defeat your purpose if your fasting window is large enough, but is probably not a good idea, healthwise.
    Both keto and IF take some getting used to. If you're interested, I'd recommend looking at the forums on Reddit for both. They usually have links in the right sidebar that will give you basic information, plus the posts are usually by people who have done it or are doing it.
    Jason Fung might be someone you want to look up. He's a doctor who discovered that fasting helped his diabetic patients. Healed some of them, I think.
    Here are a couple of links about IF.

    Just so I'm giving a clear picture here, I probably walk 2/3 or 3/4 of the time I do my runs. I can go fairly far because I can walk 3 miles, and often do. It's about one and a half miles to Walmart so I walk there, walk around the store, and then walk home. Sometimes I go to another store or two before I go home, so walking is not difficult. Running! Man, that is difficult.

    I'm always scanning the net for things to read, especially about this program. I like to hear success stories and read about other people's journey. It helps me quite a bit and this particular blog put things into a really nice perspective. It  is well worth the read for sure!

    I had also read an interview with Josh Clark, the man who originally put the Couch to 5K together. In the interview, he said "The animating notion behind Couch to 5K is that anyone who laces up their shoes and gets moving earns the right to be called “runner” "  This of course made me smile.
