  1. 9/27 Update: Howdy all! Thanks for your words of encouragement Goal #1: STA Check-In Did 1 "25-something" this morning! Hoping to conquer 2 more before Friday Goal #2: CON Check-In I've been paying things down, and been about 50% successful in avoiding fast food. This is going to be my cryptonite...
  2. 9/22 Update: Somehow, I've lost 10 pounds in the 2 weeks since I last weighed myself. I'm kind of shocked. I guess just thinking about it was enough to help me make some better choices! Goal #1: STA Check-In No real exercise yet (this week I finish a HUGE project and will have more time), but I completed 1 "25 something" of wall push-ups this morning. Goal #2: CON Check-In Making small, but positive gains here!
  3. Hahaha. For me, personally, charisma means building relationships. For me, NF/zombie style, it means being sneaky and cunning. Both require being social, building rapport, etc. Two sides of the same coin
  4. Hi everyone, I was, once upon a time, a regular fixture on this site. I have a faded and peeling NF bumper sticker on my car. But I fell off the wagon, hard. I'm about 50 pounds over where I was when I was last here. Sigh. BUT I'M BACK. Let's do this. I was once an assassin, but with some thought, I've realized that the Adventurer clan is a much better fit to what I actually do/who I am. I love zombie movies, video games, etc. Right now, I would die IMMEDIATELY. My ultimate quest is to reach a state of health where I would stand a chance! Ultimate Quest: Survive th

  6. Yesterday, I went on an AWESOME field trip with my students (middle schoolers). We went to this environmental education center on a lake, with rescued wildlife (mountain lions, bobcats, and bears - oh my!), boat rides on the lake, and a chance to explore some wetlands. I also took 10,000 steps yesterday. WOOF! I am counting this is a gym visit, and I will also count our 2.5 mile hike towards my goal. I loved being outside. It was awesome:) Gym Visits Left for Part 1 :: 3 Miles Left for Part 1 :: 11
  7. Thanks! I went to the gym yesterday - woohoo! I walked 1.5 miles, did some strength stuff. Feel like I started off strong! Gym Visits Left for Part 1 :: 4 Miles Left for Part On :: 13.5 Edited to Add - I also popped $200 over to my savings account. It doesn't count until Part 2, but I feel good:)
  8. So, I've been AWOL since January. Before that, I was AWOL for a couple of months. I AM SUCKING AT THIS. So my goal for the rest of this challenge? DON'T SUCK Current Quest: (PART ONE) :: 5/1 - 5/15 Back to Basics :: Don't Suck I've been AWOL for about 4 months... Sigh. I'm lucky that my reason for being AWOL is that I got VERY involved in the play I was doing, made a bunch of new friends, and subsequently did a lot of this: Time to recommit and get ready to rock! GOALS 5/1 - 5/15 NECESSARY SKILLS: I will be focusing on... DEX: Be agile and quick enough to co
  9. Hey everyone. Sorry for disappearing. That cough I had at the beginning of this challenge? Turned into a full-blown respiratory infection that knocked my ass out for the last few weeks. Since breathing was a challenge while seated, working out was not a real possibility. I'm finally starting to feel halfway better! So I'm restarting my three-week challenge today, and look forward to a healthy second half of the challenge.
  10. Hi everyone! Time for an update! 1: Money, Money, Money - NO FAST FOOD, Not even coffee! ---> not doing great on this one... - Pay all bills on time ---> Check! - Stick with the alternative 52-week challenge (deposit anywhere from $1-52 per week, each number can only be used once. This allows greater flexibility in case of car repairs or other unexpected expenses!) -----> Check! 2: Get Apocalypse Ready (+3 STA) - Make my new gym membership worth it! Go at least 2x a week ----> So far I've been 1x a week... got to ramp it up! - Do the first three weeks of Couch-to-5k! ---&g
  11. Yep, I love Zombies, Run! I wanted to stick to the training regime of the C25K, but I plan on going back to ZR once I get better endurance! Right now, my lungs are pretty crappy. I've had a cough for nearly three weeks, and working out has been tough. BUT, I'm excited to return to it.
  12. Yay, so much love! Today I started my long-term sub position (teaching 8th Grade English), and I'm so psyched! It went very well, and I'm super pumped:) Bonus? I had over 5k in steps by the time I left school! Woohoo!
  13. WE'RE HERE. WE LIKE BUFFY. GET USED TO IT! YAY! Woohoo! I love gifs, and tend to choose a different theme for each challenge. I stole the flex52 plan from some random person online. I have a very murky financial future (I'm starting a long term teaching job that ends in late March, and then... ?.... So the ability to say, "This is my $2 week" if I'm running low on funds is super helpful.
  14. 1.) Say who you are and link us to your challenge thread! Hi! I'm lolavictrola! I'm over 100 pounds overweight. I do theater and musicals. I sing. I do arty things like knit and draw. I also play video games. My birthday is next month, and I'll be 28. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/58411-epic-adventures-in-zombie-survival-lolavictrola-ch6/ 2.)
