  1. Hey guys, I completed my first challenge with flying colors. Unfortunately I got halfway through my second one (the June/July cycle) and dropped out of existence due to personal issues. I'm finally getting back into stride in my normal life and was wondering if I need to start over as a recruit or if I can jump back into ranger territory after the next (not this) cycle starts.
  2. *Repeatedly checks for story update* Hey, what do you play DA:I on? I'm on PS4 and haven't gotten to do multiplayer yet.
  3. Wow, so I've had a slow couple weeks. I've been back to my regular workout schedule all this week. But the two weeks prior I worked out maybe twice a week. Hrrrnnggghhh... This was due to the combination of it being the first real heat in Houston all year, followed by the big let down tropical storm Bill, and my sailor being home so I was super lazy wanted to do nothing but cuddle. Luckily nothing deteriorated as far as my goals are concerned. I'm still at the same bands for pull ups as before (and still struggling for that last inch to get my chin over the bar without). I'm still trying to
  4. Day three of double unders: I can string two in a row before I land on my rope! I find that I have accidentally put myself into a rhythm as far as wrist flicking. I do my speed for one DU then automatically start dropping to the speed for a single. That right now will be the hardest habit to break if I'm to get these double unders down. I'm also considering purchasing a beaded rope with a speed handle. If anyone has any experience with using this sort of set up, I'd love recommendations. This solution is just one I've read up on to help with double under training. Note on the pull ups: I t
  5. I'm really excited to keep following your adventure, Seeker! I think you'll have a better hang of it this time around as you know what your bears look like a bit more. A little jealous you're a librarian. I wish I'd done that instead of engineering *blegh*.
  6. Name: Athariel Race: Human Class: Necromantic Shaman Occupation: Abhorsen Guys... I'm just really excited I got to use one of my character names woohoo. She's always been based on Sabriel from the Old Kingdom series, but with some of my families Native American story characters. So I think for this mini I'll be writing as an Abhorsen who happend to end up in the middle of our apocalypse. Cool? Cool. Feats: ENDURANCE: Increase distance traversed in 30 minute running sessions (checked using runkeeper).STRENGTH: 3 pull ups leading to my challenge goal - or depending on the week this occurs, j
  7. Oh, oh oh oh oh ohhhhh!!! Mini-Challenge, Yay!!!!! My FEATS!!!! I think I have three of them already kind of defined with my challenge, woohoo! ENDURANCE: Increase distance traversed in 30 minute running sessions (checked using runkeeper).STRENGTH: 3 pull ups leading to my challenge goal - or depending on the week this occurs, just improvement DEXTERITY: 3 consecutive - see double unders above, again depending on week, improvement.COMBAT: Continue with weekly yoga sessions, but go at it with heart. Vinyasa's anyone?HEALING: Wind down an hour before bed. Including turning off electronics
  8. Hiya, I'm Spelozi. This is my first challenge as a Ranger. I think my Recruit challenge went well (hey, I met my goals didn't I?) and I'm ready to prove myself as a Ranger. While I look up to a bunch of Rangers, I will say I'm a little obsessive over Doctor Who. So this challenge is going to be a lot of me making DW quips and posting gifs of how I am particularly feeling. After all, you kind of have to be a Ranger to keep up with the Doctor. What with all the running, climbing things, running, thinking hard, running, eating of bananas, handling big guns, oh, did I mention running? Not even
  9. You're ranger if... You get really confused walking into the hotel fitness center and there are no free weights.You don't understand why there is a TV monitor blocking the beautiful view outside when you finally decide to *try* using a treadmill.
  10. One extra week and I hit my goal. I'm down to just below 140 lbs! And that's after a weekend of not eating so hot at Fan Expo Dallas. Wooo!!!
  11. Well, I have managed to drop 6 lbs, and 3 inches on my waist (3 inches when flexed... more like two inches not flexed, lol). I have met my main goal and I should be happy. But I'm not. All good plans, right? Unfortunately, the person I ordered my slave Leia costume from was not able to produce in time and I will not be meeting Carrie Fisher in full metal bikini regalia. I'm spending the next three days sewing and just dealing until I can get a back up idea to strike my brain. Maybe a modern Hoth outfit with a white leather moto jacket? We'll see how this all plays out. Meeting my waist go
  12. Hello everyone! I'm super excited to be a Ranger. I can't wait for the next challenge to start so I can see what all the challenges are like. That being said, does anyone have suggestions for Ranger n00bs to take full advantage of everything this group has to offer?
  13. Hey all, I'm back to my full workouts. Just in time for the full heat of Texas summer to start kicking in. I will never get used to that.
  14. Week 5 Challenge: I love making taco stuffed sweet potatoes. Sounds weird, but it's basically all the fillings you would put in a taco in a sweet potato (I usually only do half a sweet potato). The spiciness from my homemade taco seasoning is pretty baller and complements the sweet earthiness of the sweet potato really well. And whoever thought tomatoes would be GOOD on a sweet potato. It's pretty awesome and I highly recommend it. Plus baking a sweet potato as soon as you get home from working out gives you time to shower and back into human shape. Woohoo!!! Week 6 Challenge: Is it a su
  15. Week 5: So I hate to complain but I've been at the same weight these last two weeks. I'm dropping cheese for the remainder of the challenge to see what happens (I hope that does the trick). It doesn't help my birthday was Friday either and somehow I had everyone decide to bring me a cake (I had 5 cakes show up). The wine was delicious on Friday night though. Quest 1: B I worked out 4 times - the ridiculous rain and humidity it brought (and traffic) made it really hard to 1. even get to the gym and 2. not fall on my face running on my own. Quest 2: A I ate out unplanned once - that was Sa
