  1. What up?

    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!
  2. Newbie

    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 accomplished). You've got a great path forward and already doing great things! Let us know how we can help out and of course the best of luck on your journey!
  3. the Secret Origin of Kable

    Welcome to the Rebellion Kable! I see you have the far end goal in your mind and they're certainly great goals to have; have you set up some near term goals to get to level 2 on the path to level 50? Most members create a 4-week challenge to accomplish short term goals and progress to the long term; Rebels is a great place to put in your first challenge thread following Spezzy's super-awesome-walkthrough. Feel free to ask any questions you have for us and let us know how we can help!

    >.< Goal 1 So...I skipped my workout by sleeping through it even though my alarm did go off and I could have rolled out the bed and gone to the WoD. But, the house was cold and the bed was warm and invited me to get more sleeping. To fix this, I will be moving my alarm away from arm's reach from the bed so I will at least get a nice chill smacked in my face to turn off the alarm. Goal 2 I plopped into bed around 2140, but didn't break away from the phone screen and finally slept at 2150. I woke up at 0710 getting 8.25 hours of sleep and 65 minutes of wakefulness. With moving the phone/alarm away from the bed, I should spend less time distracted and getting to sleep as I need to. Goal 3 The weed whacker was $140 after taxes, but I was hoping to only spend $100, so I did go "over budget" but I am not overspending myself. /beginrant /endrant Goal 4 Still feeling a bit anti-social this morning/afternoon. After my yoga session today I will pop into the newbie intro forums and say hello without the rantiness.

    Goal 1 Didn't go to Crossfit today since I went two days in a row. I am planning to hit M, Te, Th, and Sa for this week and we'll see how everything goes Goal 2 Broke my 2130 sleep schedule again and went to bed at 2226 and sleeping until 0730, getting 8.217 hours of sleep and 51 minutes of wakefulness. Today will be a planned 2130 bedtime to fix in the sleep cycle since it does seem to be working. Most weekends I didn't feel tired until 2300 and this past weekend I wanted to go to bed earlier even though chores was my excuse of staying up on Friday. Goal 3 Unfortunately, the BX did not carry the weed whacker I was looking for. so $60 for an emmissions test (the mechanic I went to didn't do them, so I got redirected to another) and some more plastic hangers; but did get free sunglass repair so I guess that's a win? So, the electric whacker from Home Depot worked pretty well and I edged the entire yard and cleaned up the grass growing over the flower bed divider all in one charge. To be fair there was multiple passes over the edging due to all the overgrowth and now shouldn't take much to keep trimmed. For whatever reason I fell into a super funk and didn't really do anything else yesterday even though I wanted to be so productive. Today I have taken it fairly easy, unpacked two boxes and am getting ready to cook diners for the week. I am still pushing the kitchen paper project back because I really don't want to lay down the paper and have to redo it. I did a bit of an experiment and moved some of the dishes to flatten the paper and it seemed to work pretty well so far, but I don't have near enough to fill all the kitchen cabinets. Guess I will just need to do one shelf at a time and order the priority for the ones that will have immediate stuff ontop of them. Goal 4 With the funk, I really didn't check out any newbies posts; luckily I haven't seen anyone new yet when I perused the forums. Not entirely sure what that funk was all about but by the time I get to tomorrow morning I think I will be right as rain. Looking back, it may have just been the frustrations of being 0/2 on my errands purposes and having to go to plan B with both of them that shifted me off kilter. *shrugs* Well back to the schedule it is.
  6. Tialoredron Jumps Back Into the Fray

    Well, I had good intentions until I got distracted by donation help outside the BX and didn't get the weedwhacker like I planed; luckily I was planning on heading closer to the base for another errand so I have another opportunity and even did some comparison shopping at the Home Depot as I came back from Crossfit today. Goal 1 Made Crossfit this morning, hitting my 3 workouts a week goal! Today was a 3-person Team Murph 1 mile Sandbag carry 150 Sandbag Thrust 150 Chest-to-Bar (C2B) (I scaled to ringrows cause I'm weaksauce) 150 Sandbag Squats 1 mile Sandbag carry (I was absolutely smoked and was only able to do the run) So I was carried a bit by the team and I really don't enjoy that aspect. I put in my fair share of thrusts and squats, but the ringrows and last mile was disappointing for me. Goal 2 With the weekend, I didn't make my sleep schedule and started sleeping at 2257 until 0721. I was able to get 7.517 hours of sleep and 53 minutes of being awake (alarm went off at 0700 but I just laid in bed for 21 minutes...cause I could XD). So I didn't maintain the schedule but I did get the sleep I needed. Goal 3 Part of the reason I stayed up "late" was because I decided I would do the laundry and ran the dishwasher as well. I need to go get an emissions check for my vehicle *curses California* and with that I will be making a secondary run to purchase the weed whacker I need for the front lawn. Since last week, I have only bought gas, groceries, and had a cheat meal at In-N-Out because the craving happened :| All-in-all I am meeting my intent so far. Goal 4 I was able to welcome Duelly to Nerdfitness even though Jonesy and Wobbegong beat me to it, but hey, Rangers gotta represent, amIright?

    It was quite impressive; I believe it was based off one of the games' workouts; I know I finished 20+ minutes, probably even 30+, but I finished and wanted to not do anything even though I had to rush to work
  8. Adventurer New to NF!

    Welcome to the Rebellion Duelly! Most members use the 4-week challenges as their accountability system, but there's more than one way to get the accountability needed. If you haven't taken a look at it yet, Spezzy has made this super-awesome-walkthrough of doing your first challenge. We are getting to the closing of the first week of the current cycle, but its never too late to jump in if you decide the 4WC is your way forward!
  9. Tialoredron Jumps Back Into the Fray

    @ElastigirlWell, pretty sure it wasn't that since I am like 98% confident I just straight up didn't follow them XD Goal 1 Finally made it to another Crossfit session this week! That's 2 for the week and that means I just need to show tomorrow at the 0800 to be goal complete for the week! Todays WoD crushed me today though Strength: Front Squat: 1RM (165 lbs; attempted 185 [my bodyweight!] but I was exhausted, leaned forward at the bottom and dumped it :/) "The Seperator" For Time 12 HSPU 15 Back Squat (225/165) 20 Burpees 9 HSPU 18 Front Squats (205/145) 20 Burpees 6 HSPU 21 OHS (185/125) 20 Burpees I scaled the HSPU to a box pike pushup; I don't have wall walks all the way down yet as I feel I am still a few feet away from the wall before my spidey-senses tell me "dude...the eff you doin!?" and I know I can't complete 1 rep of a HSPU yet either. Weight was scaled to 105, 85, 65. I don't recall what time I got, but there was much suffering. Goal 2 I missed the 2100 planned bedtime, and even getting into bed around 2130, I the fitbit didn't register attempting to sleep until 2141 and entering a sleep cycle at 2203. Waking up at 0506 resulted in 6.533 hours of sleep with 53 minutes of wakefulness. If I backtrack and add in another hour (actually getting to bed at 2100) I definitely could hit my goal of 7.5 hours sleeping, so this is very doable once my body consents to the new sleep cycle. Goal 3 I will be purchasing a weed whacker this weekend (most likely today when I go to the BX and hoping they have an electric whacker) as well as purchasing some plastic hangers to replace the wire hangers that have bent out of shape and don't slide across the wooden rod as nicely as the plastic ones do. I am still waiting to buy bookcases as I haven't made my decision on if I am just going to get the cheap particleboard again or if I want to get a heavy wood; I will probably do the particleboard since I plan to have more moves in my future and will need to be mindful of weight allowances anyways, but this weekend I will be skipping on bookcases again. I will be mowing the lawn tomorrow (definitely not to just get my steps/miles before a change in shifts on the mini >.> Who would dare play such a game with chores! *not this guy* <.<) and I am still debating on what other home projects/improvements I can really work on. The more I think on it, the more I realize that all I can do without purchasing storage shelving of some sort it to do general cleaning/dusting and work on laying down the kitchen paper which I have no motivation for :| I am just mostly concerned with having to redo the paper even though I am just fixating on the shelves that are "failures" for having wrinkles show up or the end flaring up. Goal 4 Sent a welcome message to our two newest members Bman and TREKfan007, along with welcoming back an old user under a new alias Quorra who went on a 5 year hiatus.
  10. Hi everyone!

    Welcome to the Rebellion TREKfan007! (Should I call you Piccard? Bond? I'm so confused! XD) If you haven't heard of 4-week challenges, that is how most of the members here keep accountability of ourselves and set up the small goals to win the bigger ones in our Epic Quests. If you're interested, I'd recommend heading over to the Rebels to complete your first challenge and using Spezzy's super-awesome-walkthrough if you want to jump onto the gain-train of the current 4-week challenge In more seriousness though, let us know how we can help!
  11. Living My Truest Self

    Welcome back and glad you are sticking to rule #2! Wait...that isn't quite right....Oh yeah! When you join, you're in for life! Let us know if there is anything you need from us (assuming you remember most of the layout of the forums and challenges; if not we can help!)
  12. New Guy

    Welcome to the Rebellion Bman! We can definitely help so long as you want us to. Most members maintain accountability via the 4-week challenges throughout the year to destroy destructive habits and build on ones that improve us and help to reach our personal goals. We are a week into the latest challenge, but the best time to start is now. If you are so interested, the Rebel's section is over here and you can use Spezzy's super-awesome-walkthrough to help guide you way better than I can ever hope to accomplish. Let us know how we can help you!
  13. Ready for Battle! (Jlailin's First Challenge)

    Good work so far! It's almost an entire week since you have started the challenge; how are things feeling? For planks, side planks could be a viable option if there is time to add in two more movements (or one if you are subbing them out completely for the plank),
  14. KittyDisaster fights for A life!

    Sorry to hear about your cat Never is a fun day saying goodbye to family members with fur. Great job getting the wins today though! With yesterday done and over with I hope that today is a better day!
  15. Tialoredron Jumps Back Into the Fray

    Thanks! I know Tank's thread is one of the few I have been attempting to follow, but there isn't enough time in the day to stay current XD The overwhelming feeling is definitely there, but if I limit myself to just checking on the new ones this challenge I believe I will have more confidence in getting involved with the Rangers more so than just being a member. *shrugs* My mind is weird to me sometimes, but what I am doing currently feels right and I will be ready for progression soon if I am reading my own indications correctly. Goal 1 Slept through all the things this morning unfortunately. Goal 2 Although I didn't get to bed at my planned time of 2100, I did get to bed and immediately fell asleep at 2127. I remember my alarm going off and I know I turned it off (same with my second alarm) and I slept on until 0721. I slept for 8.967 hours and had 56 minutes of wakefulness last night. I am beginning to wonder if there may be some underlying reason to why I have overslept the past two nights. I am hoping its just the attempt at a new sleep cycle and next week will be smoother. Goal 4 So, I was a dumb-dumb and realized I hadn't gotten any updates from some of the new members as I wasn't following them. I have since corrected that issue and am now actually staying up to date with everyone I have reached out to so far. I will be reaching out to at least two of our newest members tonight. With that, I also welcomed three new members, Recep, Kae, and Mike F.
