  1. Thanks! It's amazing how contagious our attitudes are, isn't it? NF is a great community of encouragement, I'm glad to be here.
  2. I think so. My biggest goal is to be really, really full of energy. I used to be an endurance athlete, and while that was fun, I think it's time for something different. I love the attitude and ethos behind CrossFit, I think I am trying to take my favorite parts and fit them to my life.
  3. Thanks for the encouragement! It was a surprise for sure.
  4. What? Are you doubting my ability to run a mile in 60 seconds, taking only 178 steps? What is the internet if not a trustworthy place? Good catch, thank you!
  5. Day One: Baseline Fitness Test Every item was as-many-reps-as-possible in 60 seconds. The run was measured via steps on my pedo. Done in this order, so I was wiped by the end! Chin-ups: 6 Push-ups: 19 Simple burpees: 18 (these are vertical stand to arm-extended plank only. No pushup, no jump.) Sit-ups: 24 Toyotas: 20 Run: 178 steps (approx. .1048 miles based on a gps app) Okay, so now I know where I am. Let's do this!
  6. Awesome! My best friend married a PA. She loves the work and they make a great living, it's an awesome career.

    Awesome! I have a strong calesthenics focus too, I look forward to getting inspired by your great success!
  8. Great challenge, I can't wait to see how you do!
  9. Pullups are a great goal. They're hard but incredibly functional, and something that people give up on too easily. I can't wait to see how you do!
  10. I love all the measurements you included in your baseline, that makes it so much easier to evaluate progress. Great challenge setup.
  11. Look at it this way: only one armwarmer to go! You can do it!
  12. Way to go fellow NF dad! I had a lot of luck with a digital purge. I started with deleting non-essential apps, then turning off all the pings and notifications that make you reach for it. (Remember, it's a tool for you to reach people, not to be on call 24/7.) It's hard but worth it!
  13. I'm a divinity student. This semester is focused on worship and ritual, OT interpretation and church polity. Woo! What are you studying? Good luck with the semester!
  14. Zzx has joined the game! I hope I made it before the group extraction. I'm a 30m, and I'm at a healthy weight/activity level, looking for a fun new sport/competition to fit into a busy schedule. I'm taking the red pill and looking forward to the slide!
  15. Great measurable plan, good job! I had great luck with a cheap food scale I bought off amazon. I quickly realized I had no idea what an oz of pasta really is (or to be positive, the giant, belly-filling servings of greens I could have for basically no calories). Have a great challenge!
