  1. @Sylvaa hahaha me too! I decided on growing a mix of mints, and I ordered seeds online. Kinda nervous! Update: Week 1 is going great! I cooked a paleo meal yesterday. Today I worked out, hiked AND cooked a breakfast (turkey and bacon and spinach and sweet potato patties yum!), and ordered the aforementioned seeds. Dailies have been completed. Now I'm off to read the introductory chapter to ADF's Dedicant Path [pulls out spellbook and starts reading]... it's actually all online, and only as magical as I want it to be
  2. Hey adventurers, no story time today, sorry. Maybe I'll come up with a chapter later for this challenge, but I've been working on my Statement of Purpose for grad school so much recently that I don't feel like writing! These are building on my previous challenges getting my sugar intake down, improving posture, improving strength, improving nutrition, and hopefully one day be able to be a real life D&D bard adventurer! LHT twice and hike every weekChin tucks and quad stretch every morning and eveningOnly 1 sweetened drink per dayPrep a Paleo breakfast and dinner for the week e
  3. Sounds like a fun goal to work towards! Good luck!
  4. Fantastique! Je viens de Colombie Britannique, où tous le monde parlent anglais, mais j'étais dans une école primaire immersion française. Oh gosh, I'm sure that's rife with mistakes, I haven't written French since college! You got this girl.
  5. Oof, this week has been rough. I planned an awesome camping/hiking trip in the Shenandoah National Park. My husband was on vacation and I took a long weekend. Day 1 of long weekend I developed a cold with fever, sore throat, and runny nose. Darn! So we cancelled the trip and have been bumming around. This means I definitely did not achieve the camping trip goal, although I set a new date for early November. I also forgot to do chin tucks for a couple days, so that goal is blown too. However, we are (barely) staying in food budget still, and I DID manage to go for a little "hike" today. All I n
  6. The forest noises surrounded us as we tromped ever further towards the spider nests. After a couple more hours hiking, my feet seemed to stick to the ground. In fact, my whole body seemed a bit sticky. “Hey guys?” I called, getting farther behind as I struggled to unstick my feet from the ground. “Um, I’m a bit stuck…” Mog hurried back to check on me. “Oh dear,” he said, “It seems you got splashed with some Sugar Beast residue when it exploded.” “Is it fatal?” I asked, tears coming to my eyes. “Oh no,” Quarnik was quick to cut in. “You just have
  7. Jealous! I would have been stoked to get a heron. I actually have a tattoo of a bittern...
  8. So true! In the spring, I was doing so great with the Academy! My friend stayed with me all summer, and even though she cooks healthy food and loves to hike, just having a buddy around all the time was enough to derail any progress. My current goal is to create a new baseline, so that when I fall off the fitness wagon I won't revert back to 0. Instead, I'll revert to one LHT session per week. And hopefully I can keep getting that baseline higher and better.
  9. I haven't been checking the boards much yet this challenge, so I'm just joining in here now. Great challenge! It is super FUN, and to me that's kinda the point of Nerd Fitness. If I can make fitness fun, it is WAY more doable!
  10. Hey Hyrulian, sorry your week didn't end on a high note. I hope things are going better. What is your new tattoo?
  11. My Party: Mog: level 3 Acquisitor. Planning and financially backing the adventure. Quarnik: level 2 Ferengi, protege of Mog. Also pretty good with a phaser (at least, good for a Ferengi). Manitou: Tauren scout, knows the way to the spider's nest, also rudimentary skill with a compound bow. Me: level 1 adventurer, magical silk expert. We were on our way. My spirits were high, even though I was struggling a bit with my pack. The sun was cheerfully shining through the leaves above. My boots made a cheery crunching sound as I trod on early fall leaves. Gradually, the sunlig
  12. Awesome positive spin. I'll be following along
  13. This is a fantastic challenge. I also like that you're grading system is consistent with the challenge - pure positive reinforcement. I think one problem with gaining self esteem based on a romantic relationship is that those tend to end more often than not. Even marriages have a low success rate. Not to be negative here, I just want to make a suggestion. If you need external reinforcement to feel good about yourself (most people do), maybe try cultivating friendships and family relationships. Those are less likely to sweep the mat out from under you and can be long-lasting sour
  14. I don't know about gyms, but I was a chiropractic assistant for two years. I'd say the #1 important thing to look for in a PT is how they teach you good form. I'd do a session with them before signing up for a subscription. See if they pay attention to the details of what they're teaching you. You want someone who'll take the time to make sure the fundamentals are right. They're there to encourage you, but they're also your second pair of eyes to make sure you don't get hurt! I don't know if there is a sports chiropractor near you, but if there is I'd ask him/her for a PT recommend
  15. Hey, you got 3/5! Don't get too discouraged! And congrats on the E for Core challenge
