    Alanna's Vigil

    Hey Alanna, thanks for stopping by my challenge I love the Tamora Pierce books too, so of course I had to come check out yours! Looks like you've got a lot on, I know I can barely manage school and not much else, and I'm only an undergrad! But I'm sure you'll be able to do it, good luck, I'll be checking in

    I'm going to reveal myself to be a complete newbie, but if you don't mind me asking, what do you mean by LP? Your challenge looks good, keeping ones inner fat boy in check is a struggle I have everyday!
  3. Awesome motivation and good looking challenge! Eating simply is something I've been striving to do, yet it's harder than it seems! Good luck to you!

    Hey man, your challenge looks good. I've been curious about intermittent fasting, clearly it's been working for you? And you don't feel like you're lacking energy or anything like that? I'm keen to see how it goes, so I'll be checking back in, good luck!
  5. I really like your mentality, and your challenge seems awesome! I'll be checking back in to see how you're doing
  6. Looks awesome! I'm still a rookie when it comes to lifting, so I'm curious as to how much extra weight you lift per workout/week? Are you consistently lifting more weight or does it vary?

    Tate Version 2.0

    I just completed my first NF challenge, I've signed right on up for the next because it seems to be working with helping me get fit again and level up my life.I set up a few good habits in my first challenge and now I'm looking to build on them, and work on a few more specific things. I've recently returned to the gym after about 5 years away from it, and I've rediscovered my love of picking up very heavy things, hence I'm signing up for the warriors. I'm a uni student, and as such my life gets pretty hectic during semester. My last challenge was done over my winter break so I was able to f
  8. Here's my final summary: Final Update! Eat 2+ meals of non-processed foods a day – I’m not going full Paleo (yet) but I want to stick to real, whole foods. Grade: B+, missed the first week, but from then on I hit this goal almost everyday, feeling good about continuing this habit going forward. Mild Exercise - do a mild bodyweight workout 3 times a week and do something active (a walk, swim or bike ride) on other days. From everything I’ve read about recovering from glandular fever, doing mild activity is better than doing nothing, the key is monitoring it to make sure I don’t ove

  10. A little bit late on my update for Week 5! But still keeping up with my challenge. Been hitting the gym, still feeling great, I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed strength workouts. Still getting my 8+ hours sleep. Haven't been quite as good with my eating, had a few too many meals out with friends eating bad food. But only a few days, so I'm still pretty happy with that. I realised I've forgotten to mention how I'm going with my side quest before - because it's completely skipped my mind. I had pretty rough last semester at uni, so looking at anything related to my studies, as my side quest is
  11. So, an update for the last two weeks, I've gotten into a real habit of going to the gym every second day, lifting some weights, which is feeling great! Been eating well too, sticking to whole foods and cooking for myself, with the exception of a couple of meals with friends. And still getting my sleep. If there is anything I'm good at, it's sleeping Overall I'm feeling good, really rested and like I'm getting my energy back. And maybe it's my imagination but I think I've even lost a little bit of weight. I'm really glad I've taken to the time to get into a routine of eating well and exerci
  12. Sorry, I always forget that there's people out there on the internet waiting for an update! Second week was much better, I've met my goals for eating non-processed food, only had a couple of meals out with friends and other than that I've been cooking for myself, and eating lots of vegetables and good things. Still been getting my good 8 hours of sleeps. I haven't been exercising quite as much as I set out to, but I have been doing more than I did before the challenge. Baby steps, right?! I did return to the gym for two workouts last week to lift free weights for the first time in almost 5 ye
  13. First week didn't go so great. I got 8 hours sleep every night, but that's about all I accomplished. This week was the very end of my exam period, so I've been very stressed and have resorted to eating out because I haven't had time to shop or cook. But my last exam is tomorrow so the next will be better I'm sure! Thanks for checking in
  14. Hey Arya, thanks for stopping by my challenge. I really like the look of your challenge, especially eating less take-out bit, definitely something I need to work on the future! Good luck to you!
  15. Hey, I’m Tate and I’m a 22 year old student from Melbourne, Australia. I've been lurking around NF and reading articles for over a year now, but it’s time to finally take the plunge and hold myself accountable via the internet! Since I got Glandular Fever (or Mono for the Americans) in September last year I haven’t been the same since – constantly under the weather and fatigued. If anyone has any experience recovering from Mono, please give me a shout. My long term goal is to start building muscle – hopefully lots of it – but first up I need to get healthy again. Part of doing th
