  1. Thanks to both of you for the welcome, suggestions, and link! I hadn't thought of kettlebells, and they ARE relatively cheap which is great! I do have access to a pull up bar, some lighter dumbbells and some sandbags (10-40lb). I just started a new job and I'm still figuring out my schedule, but I hope to start a journal on the forum soon for some accountability.
  2. Please forgive me if this is in the wrong section or has been thoroughly discussed elsewhere. I'm a 25-year-old female who is completely new to bodybuilding and currently pretty sedentary. I've been vegan for 3 years, maybe 4. I'm about 5'8" and 120lbs (read: skinny but soft). I'd like to be a better representation of vegans, so I'd like to put on some weight. I also want to have a baby in 2-3 years, and everything I've read says I should put on at least 15 lbs before even thinking about getting pregnant. I recently moved to a pretty rural area, and I only have access to a gym on a military installation. This might sound silly, but I don't really relish the idea of fumbling through workouts surrounded by service members who are on their 2nd or 3rd hour for the day. Which brings me to my questions: How feasible is it, really, to get started at home? I have a garage and a spare room and could throw a little bit of money toward equipment, but not a fortune. If you were me, what would your absolute basics be? And, a bonus question: I'm not always the hungriest lady around. Any ideas for stimulating appetites or encouraging eating? I can post some pictures of myself, if that would help, but I'm a little embarrassed reaching out even this much! Thanks for reading.
