  1. For those interested, there is a group of us making a trek to the Texas Ren Fest on the 19th of November... Contact me if you are interested in details or join the Austin Nerd Fitness Adventures facebook group for the event...
  2. There has been a tremendous increase in forum spam lately (all of the random titles containing links to video streams)... I've been flagging, but there are some forums overtaken with them.
  3. Oops... I need to get back to the forums more often... I'm a New Braunfels nerd, but work in the area surrounding North Star Mall... And yes, the Austin FB page covers San Antonio area events, though we haven't had much of anything happen lately other than Steve's Book Signing tour stop in Austin back January-ish.
  4. Seems realistic. Yes, the Assassins would be good for you after this challenge. The goal is to take each day at a time and not to give up.
  5. I prefer the encourage word over the nagged word..
  6. Alas, I am back as an Adventurer after a failed series of missions as an Assassin. My cache of lives have been consumed and I am seeking a respawn point on this journey of life. So this I am going to mix things up and try to pick up the pieces and start over. My current motivation is to be in shape and capable of doing a 5K in September, marching a halftime with the Longhorn Alumni Band on September 19, and survive the hills (and Amy's bootcamp) at Camp NF 2015. This time I need to kick butt and take names. My current stats? I've gained weight, but I've lost body fat, but I'm not happy
  7. OK, this challenge was unsuccessful once again because I ended up getting sick with allergies about a week in that sidelined me for almost 3 weeks.. As a success, I kept up to around 10K steps a day on average even in the oppressive Texas heat and I did get some swimming in. Otherwise everything else was an abject failure. Thus, as a result, I am demoting my self as a failed assassin back to an Adventurer until I can level up to be an assassin.
  8. Yesterday was a lag day because of band practice, so my workout time was limited. Only was able to do 11K steps on a muggy and warm Monday evening, fighting off mosquitoes left and right..
  9. For the most part, these are all already public. My fitbit stats are always available on twitter (see below) and my Fitbit Account (http://t.co/Zcxvw5M2Ib) - Feel free to add me to join challenges and so forth.. I'm also active in the Walk to Modor Challenge on Matchup... Usually all of my walk/workouts are also posted on twitter, but when I upgraded to Android M Dev Preview, it lost my twitter account settings that I'll turn back on. But I generally log all walks (with GPS, sometimes with HR), weight lifting and BW (sometimes with HR), and swimming (time only) using MapMyFitness - http
  10. This is my second attempt at my fourth challenge that I kinda abandoned back in January. There were some positives but in general it was a failure. So I'm using this time to start anew and pick up the pieces. I have two challenges before a busy September including Alumni Band and Camp Nerd Fitness 2015 to make up ground. This is my third challenge as an Assassin, so I hope to finally be able to do Assassin-like activities like BodyWeight and so forth... To recap my last challenge, I did do the Pax South and restarted Graduate School at Georgia Tech in Computer Science. I have averaged
  11. Welcome to 2015. This challenge pretty much is a continuation of Challenge #3, which I passed, but had an incomplete based on some activities I was not able to complete. The new activities that will be happening in the next six weeks include: * Attending Pax South at the end of January * Restarting Graduate School at Georgia Tech in Computer Science For a quick background on me, I'm a considerably overweight 42 year old guy who started to get serious on the fitness journey last April after being diagnosed as a Type II Diabetic. I'm also motivated in losing weight in order to have a mu
  12. Okay, here is my post Challenge results entry. I passed it, but just barely. Results: Continuing Quest: As my previous post said, I rocked the continuing quest. In fact, one week post the challenge and I hit the 70K mark after only 6 days (today is a bonus stage). And that is with two pretty crappy days of 8K and 4K... Challenge 1: For this challenge, I tasked myself with continuing to do workouts. Well, I made it to the gym at least two of the planned three times during the week (since I am doing StrongLifts, I'm only supposed to workout every other day). I give myself a B on
  13. Quick Data Summary Thread. I'll write up the "writeup" later today... Fitbit Week 6 Stats: (Note, I was at the hobbit marathon Monday and it was raining on Thursday) Steps: 66,862 Floors: 29 Distance: 29.59 miles Challenge Overall: W1 71581 55 31.67 W2 65154 29 28.82 W3 78629 50 34.78 W4 72832 31 32.23 W5 78990 59 34.95 W6 66682 29 29.59 Total: 433868 253 192.04 Goal: 103.30% 120.48% 106.69% Goals were: 10K steps per day, 5 flights of stairs a day, and 30 miles a week.
  14. Sorry for the short abruptness last week. It was a pretty intense week of everything going wrong... However, I did get a lot of walking in: Fibit Week 5 Stats: 78,990 steps 34.95 miles 59 floors I started the week climbing a big hill in town just above the park and made it a point to get as much walking in as possible. I only went to the gym twice (Monday and Wednesday) and felt ill after the second time. The weekend was full of performances (dress rehearsal on Saturday and Christmas Orchestra/Choir on Sunday). This week is going to suck in comparison. I only got 3800 steps in on
