  1. *flings open the door* FEL! What a pain! I'm back again everyone! Sorry I went a bit AWOL. Work computers were upgraded to Windows 10 and there are gremlins far as the eye can see, but I am happy to be back again. Barkeep! Round on me for everyone for being away for so long. I hope all you lovely Rangers are doing well so far in the challenge! I have come into contact with an old friend interested in the Academy and I am encouraging them to get involved here first especially as I have no experience in it besides the Yoga class.
  2. Whaddya mean it's already over?! *Insert Ferris Bueller's post credit scene* Things have turned a bit quicker than I expected, didn't really get the chance to settle in after my vacation before getting whisked away again. Quick summary of post DragonCon events though (DragonCon event deets still inbound soon as I figure how to transpose all the photos): Made it to Crossfit one time last week on Thursday if I am not mistaken and decided to take the remainder of the week off from Crossfit in favor of the PT test that happened today. PT test went decently well
  3. "Yeah, that went well." -Capt Malcom "Mal" Reynolds Pics of DragonCon coming soon with deets. Didn't get that last session of Crossfit in; *feeling meh about it cause DragonCon!* I feel like I am super behind on all the things I wanted to do and a little overwhelmed, but I am working to get back to "normal". After putting all the goals on hold for DragonCon, I was able to get to Crossfit this morning and even recruited a friend! ((Where's my in-game mount and pet?!))
  4. Well, life has certainly hit me square in the face as I am not finding any sort of free time to update this Goal 1 Hit the box Sunday and Monday. I have already forgotten Sunday's WoD :/ Monday's WoD 6-12-18-12-6 Kettlebell Snatch Pushup Kettlebell Lunge Ab Mat Sit Ups I scaled the Kettlebells to 35 lbs, but I no longer remember what the Rx weight was So 2x this week already and planning to go tomorrow morning! Even with DragonCon ahead of me, hashtagwinning! Goal 2 I suffered on this for Saturday and Sunday
  5. Love the Leroy Jenkins and Joker gifs! Kick ass and be awesome!
  6. *reports in after going AWOL on Friday* Man, this whole adulting thing is still difficult even going into my 5th year in the "real world". I had great plans going in then things fell apart pretty readily. Goal 1 Didn't make it to Crossfit this morning like I intended. Again, I stayed up way too late and decided to sleep instead. So this week I was only able to attend one class :| Goal 2 This goal is really what I wanted to focus on; I feel if I can get my sleep cycle down and maintain a proper schedule, getting to accomplish Goal 1 won't be as m
  7. Welcome to the Rebellion! Most members work on their goals with their own 4-week challenge threads; we are currently in our second week for this rotation, but there's no better time than now to start exploring what the community can offer you! If you're interested, the Rebels is a great place to put your first 4-week challenge thread (following Spezzy's super-awesome-walkthrough). Or creating your own Daily Battle Log is another great option for telling us how your journey's going. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
  8. Welcome back to the Rebellion Sabina! Loss of a family member is very difficult; each person will deal with grief differently as well so what works for one person may not work for another. I think Sciread has given some good advice and food for thought. There is a lot being piled onto you, and I think you need to take care of yourself; if you can take some days off of work to focus on yourself and your relations may be a great start to re-center yourself.
  9. Welcome to the Rebellion Amanda! https://darebee.com/, as mentioned, provides daily dares as well as themed workout plans that can help keep the excitement level up and add the variety to a workout you may be looking for. If nerdiness is your thing; dig through the workouts to find your nerddom (there's workouts with titles like Avengers, Link, Black Widow, and many more; I had thought there was a collection of them on the site but I am not able to find it right now). As for where to put updates, that will be up to you if you want to log it in your Daily Battle Log or c
  10. Welcome back to the Rebellion Anthony! You may be familiar with the 6-week challenges of old, but they have been scaled down to 4-week challenges. The format is more or less the same, but just over the shorter time span. We are closing in to completed the second week for this go around but the best time to Respawn is now (thread set based on Steve's article). Spezzy also made this nifty video if you needed a refresher on setting up your challenge. Classes are mostly the same and it seems like you may be moving to the Monks based on your MMA goals. Let us know how we c
  11. Goal 1 Didn't make it to Crossfit as I had planned to today due to interruption to my sleep last night for unfortunate events that are developing, Goal 2 Making up for missing the post, Tuesday I was dumb and stayed up until 2306 and only got 6.5 hours of sleep, waking up at 0619 and last night I got back on goal by getting to bed at 2130, but multiple calls interrupted my sleep and I slept in until 0720 getting 8.75 hours of sleep. Sadly, a serious incident occurred last night and investigation is still ongoing to my latest knowledge. Goal 4 Elerinna wa
  12. Welcome to the Rebellion Elerinna! My advice as a non-doctor would be to go see an actual doctor. Working out extra hard and/or back to back sessions every day could be putting undue stress on your body and we have no insights to help remedy that. It'd be much better long term to get checked out, scale back the intensity/frequency of the workouts, and progress "slower" than it would to maintain the current pace, have a hard break/injury and lose the progress you had worked so hard to gain and start over if/when you recovered. Ideally, go see a doctor before the next workout.
  13. Goal 1 Crossfit attended today Strength 6x2 Push Jerk (increasing weight); last set was 125 lbs. 21-15-9 Pullups (scaled to ringrows) Handstand Pushups (scaled to box assisted pike push ups) Thrusters 135 lbs (scaled to 75 lbs) Sad to say I didn't feel confident doing the pullups Rxed, but I knew after the first 7 reps I would not have been able to move on. HSPU would be neat to do, but I don't really feel that I care to be able to do HSPUs. I am starting to feel maybe the programming isn't lining up with what I became accustomed to back in Fl
  14. Welcome to the Rebellion Kris! You mentioned doing 4 weeks of IF, so I assume you are familiar with the 4-week challenges. We have just started week 2 of our own cycles but that's not near as important as building up the good habits that will help you accomplish your goals. If you have any questions let us know!
  15. Welcome to the Rebellion Iky! Doubling up on Zeroh's post, I'd recommend setting up a 4-week challenge thread as well. As Wobbegong pointed out, its best to make small amounts of changes and I have had some successes; the great part is that you can always respawn and begin anew as you need to after giving consideration to why a success didn't happen (my challenge thread below is filled with a plethora of examples where I fail in some/all of my goals throughout the week, but each morning I start again from square one and attempt to do better than yesterday or maintain what I have ac
