  1. Thank you! 🥰 A wee update: I had a great time but have been dizzy ever since I got off the last ride - its been two days now! If it lasts another couple days I might worry about it, but for now I'm just trying to stay hydrated and to not knock things over too much, haha. I'm having a hardcore period too, and have been off to a rough start - but that's okay! I'm off tomorrow and plan to meal prep for a couple days to try and help spread my calories across the day to combat the hunger and cravings. Not going to let a tough start ruin my challenge! 😁
  2. Thank you, all! I really appreciate the little bit of extra motivation! 🥰 A little pre-challenge update. I've been doing really well with my goals, even before week one. Its been a bit of a tough week workwise although the worst of it is over, woohoo! My younger brother is visiting all the way from home from Saturday evening until Monday evening and whilst I'll still be careful with my diet on Saturday and Monday, I'm going to let myself have a one-off treat day on the Sunday so we can make the most of showing him the food my city has to offer, and also as he may worry if he spots
  3. Welcome back! I'm also an old player from around that time frame returning oncemore on a new account, haha! Are you planning all of those goals or some of them for this 4wc? 😊
  4. That's the plan! Want to build a good foundation for future main quests, haha 😄
  5. Ayyyyy, we're glad! Also, I love your challenge goals! I could probably take a lesson on the online shopping front too 😜
  6. Lets just say I rolled a d20 on the death saves that incurred from my previous challenge's failure 😉 And alas, I'm back! Last time I jumped straight in on my challenge from point 0, with my end goal in mind but not an idea about how I'd find myself best exercising, or on what diet I'd be changing my eating. And I lose momentum as I realised I wasn't achieving my 5wc goals, but I was enhancing myself in completely different ways that I felt way more motivated in. To put it metaphorically, I cast firebolt in an enclosed area and went down at level 1 in my last challenge. So, ha
  7. Ahahaha, welp! Thank you for correcting me there! I like the idea of a week 0 😄
  8. Hiya, welcome back! I did the same; was active a few years ago and just recently returned with quit a different life than I then had, haha! Not sure if fitness classes have reopened in your corner of the world but as somebody who struggles with the motivation on the working out front more than on the dieting front, I found that signing up for real classes helped, if you haven't found that already! 😊
  9. Following as I'm in the same boat! (Minus having tried Reddit. I'm going to give that a go today, I don't know why I never thought to since I'm in a bunch of gaming sub-reddits already) I haven't given it a go but perhaps there are Discord groups? I'm not sure where you'd start looking for those but the idea just came to me. Best of luck! 😊
  10. @alanna Ah, I'm very late to respond to this but I just wanted to say thank you for such a complete response! I've actually since gone onto a calorie counting diet on a deficit and after about 3 weeks, its going really well. I'm finding myself motivated - and happy to be able to pat myself on the back on the daily by actively tracking something so often. Doing something about it, albeit small, has made me feel infinitely better about my body too, regardless of results. I'll stay alert but am glad to report none of my old disordered behaviours or thoughts reappearing! 😊
  11. 12/06/21 Thank you @Fairly_Bouncer! 😄 So I did my first Aerial Hoop class, ah! I was surprised by how nervous I was. Thankfully its an intimate class and they were all really lovely. Liam, our tutor, threw me straight into the deep end, no easing in at all. Turns out a lot of it came naturally (and I've gotten a pretty great photo of myself suspended in air doing the Gazelle pose!) but I have tiny noodle arms and so the hardest part was maintaining the upper body strength required for holding myself onto the darned thing! Classes have limited numbers until lockdown rest
  12. 08/06/21 I remember, when I last did Nerd Fitness in my late teens, finding great success by envisioning my "fantasy alter ego" if you will. I imagined myself a wood elf ranger and worked on a vegetable/fruit heavy diet with lots of cardio to achieve the build - but also abilities - to match. Now that I'm back again with slightly different goals and as an avid D&D player, I'm really starting to think its worth a go, for fun if nothing else; an extra splash of motivation on an already upwards journey towards where I want to be. I'm going half-elf since I've the slight build and
  13. Hiya, guys! So I'm starting a battle log to keep track on my health, fitness and goals! The day I signed up I immediately jumped into a 6 week challenge but missed the mark on my goals a little; I've found myself doing remarkably well where my eating is concerned (an area I didn't concentrate on much in my challenge) so I've decided to forfeit this first one and just track here where I naturally seem to be motivating myself, so I can better adjust my goals next time! For now, I'm eating on a slight deficit and finding it really easy; I've missed tracking calories and getting an ins
  14. Hiya, guys! So a few years ago in my late-teens I suffered with disordered eating, namely, eating 700-800kcal a day, purging, etc, being quite underweight. Its been a long time since then or at least, about 5-6 years, and I'm just a regular adult who has always been petite but who has the tiniest bit of squish/body-fat after lockdown that isn't normal for me and that I want to get rid of - its making me feel really unhappy in my own body. I've tried since making better choices by starting to have salad for lunches at work and still having whatever the S.O makes for dinn
