  1. Eh... I remember why I left in the first place. Outie.
  2. I'll be updating this weekly. I do my tracking elsewhere and will report results on either Sunday evening or Monday.
  3. I have a date with someone I met online tonight. It's not the first time that I've done this, but there are a lot of crazies in Los Angeles. I'll give myself the point for showing up if she flakes. If she shows, I'll give myself the point for staying the whole meal, even if she's a succubus (thought we'll probably skip dessert and after dinner drinks).
  4. Thanks for stopping by! May you have great success as well.
  5. Thank you, Blaidd. Hey adventurer's. At Blaidd's suggestion, I'm doing this challenge with a guild. I did three challenges under another name, injured myself, and disappeared for a little while. Since my objectives are mostly weight loss oriented, I thought the adventurers would be just the diverse type of guild that I need.
  6. Make it so, Blaidd. Instant Transmission to the Adventurers!
  7. I'm back!

      Lots of travel for work and recovering from an injury.

  8. What's up guys? I'm not a newcomer to Nerd Fitness. I joined up back in February under a different persona. An injury threw me seriously off track and it was hard to stick to any challenges following it. After several months away, losing weight and working out my injury in physical therapy, I am ready to return. Let's get to the challenge: Main quest: Get down to 200lbs. This was the weight that I was at before my fitness really started going to hell and upon reaching it, I will have lost 50lbs from my heaviest. I am about 215lbs at the moment. Once I reach 200lbs, I will reevaluate my goals. Goal 1: Track my net calories I have been using myfitnesspal religiously, so this should be second nature. I am primarily concerned with and will be evaluating myself on calories, but I will be mindful of my macros, particularly protein. I will allow for one cheat evening per week, but must log everything prior to going out. This will be the primary mechanism by which I lose weight. Scoring: Percentage Score X/42 +2 CON, +2 CHA Goal 2: Hit the gym 3x/week, with each session incorporating both a cardio and strength training phase. For the past few weeks, I have been using the elliptical trainer for 30-40 minutes followed by an upper body workout. I haven't been cleared for squats or deadlifts yet. The three upper body workouts consists of an upper body power day, a back and shoulders hypertrophy day, and a chest and arms hypertrophy day. By lifting, I help to preserve my existing muscle mass while in a steep caloric deficit. Percentage Score X/36. +2 STA, +3 STR Goal 3: Get outside and walk/run at least 2x/week. This will help with excess calories, build up some cardiovascular strength, help strengthen my knee, and mostly get me outside. I am usually cooped up in my office and have come to enjoy some light outdoor cardio. Scoring: Percentage score X/12. + 4 STA Life Goal: Develop better control of my anger I know this one is hard to quantify, so I'll provide weekly examples of how I was able to quell my anger and not fly off the handle. I'm sure plenty of opportunities will present themselves. I've been utilizing a pause->breathe->think->act technique that has been working very well with road rage and dealings with my employees. Scoring: Diffuse at least three situations per week and document them. Percentage score X/18. +2 WIS Motivation: Overall I want to be a better looking, stronger, calmer person with more energy to accomplish the tasks that are set before me or that I set out before myself. I'm stoked to be back in the Rebellion.
  9. Dropped in to see what's going on with NF. Punched in my numbers (still tracking, just elsewhere). I hope you all are doing well. You might be seeing more of me
  10. Just dropping in to say "whats up?" (and see how much I weighed when this thing started). You all are doing great. Keep at it!
  11. Dropping in here, because several of you have added me. Adding the others. MFP is my current hangout.
  12. Well it wasn't the resumes that did it, but some strong networking: I landed the job. It will require a lot of travel, but I am ready for it. I'll have to reevaluate my strength routine, but I'm glad that I'm equipped to work the diet. May the force be with you all... and I'll probably come back here someday. In the meantime, if you want to follow my shenanigans, check out myfitnesspal in my signature.
  13. It happened: I was offered a position that will see me traveling a lot. I'm excited, but I won't be able to keep pace with updating the forums and what not. I plan to return in the future. It's been great everyone and good luck!!! Thanks to Darwin for putting this together. Farewell!
