  1. Hello All. New here, first challenge. I'm posting this a bit late, but I actually got these started at the beginning of the week, and am on track with everything so far. Main Goal: Get my weight down to 185 lbs (or more accurately, back down to) I've had success in past going low carb paleo when trying to lose weight. On the other hand, I've really enjoyed the rice, potatoes and sweet potatoes when i've been on the perfect health diet (http://perfecthealthdiet.com). So I've decided to try to have the best of both worlds, the weight loss of a low carb approach while still getting to enjoy some
  2. Hello! I've gotten on my own to a point where healthy eating is basically effortless, and I can at least get myself in the gym once or twice a week. I have a long ways to go before I can call myself 'fit', 'strong', or even truly 'healthy', so let's just jump right in! Food Goal: Stop eating the dang peanut butter right out of the dang jar!Exercise Goals:Find a good bodyweight routine that works with my schedule, and stick to it!Stationary bike/road bike (weather permitting) 20 mins/day, 2+ days/weekLifestyle Goal:Drive a little less aggressivelyI'm excited to see how my first challenge goes!
  3. RESPAWN in 3…2…1…GO! So I’m starting over, I’ve given this a shot a couple of times before but it’s really hard to stick to it. Mostly because I’m always on the road and it’s hard to keep up with exercise and diet. And I might’ve tried a bit too hard… Anyhow, I changed the way I think a bit and I’ll be giving this another shot! The Challenge: Weaknesses part 1 (Endurance) Diet: - Eliminate the Big 3: Alcohol, Fast Food and Sugars. - Food tracking: Measure ingested food, calories and nutrients. Fitness: Running (Focus) .75 mile sessions (combined w/ walking to com

    I started a challenge a while ago, but that didn't end up going too well for me. Neither did my first semester of college, in terms of being healthy, anyway. But rather than dwelling on that, let's just do this. 1. Run 30 miles over the course of the challenge (don't worry, I'm not starting from nowhere, I already run 2 miles every other day ) 2. No food from the vending machine--it's supes unhealthy, not to mention overpriced (If I could give one reason why I gained weight last semester, this is probably it.) 3. Drink a glass of water with dinner every night Life goal: Spend five minutes eac

  8. Name: Ojuntapu Siko. My personal name Ojuntapu translates as Thistle which means 'Hard to uproot'. My tree name is Ash, used for spears, canes and useful tools and furniture. That's me, I'm tenacious, grow in difficult conditions and am hard to uproot; and like ash I'm handy, useful around home and camp and can fight when I need to.

  9. I'b back for my second challenge! As I was celebrating New Year's with the family I saw a commercial come on for some health apps to start the new year. But one stuck out to me the most; the couch to 5k app. I thought to myself "why not?" what do I have to lose? Nothing, but weight. I already use most of the other health apps the commercial mentioned since they were free and could sync with the health fit app the iphone already has. In my last challenge I learned to build new and better habits. I work out more, make healthier eating choices, track my calorie intake and sleep schedule, and
  10. INTRODUCTION: Operation: Happy Nerd Levels Up! Hello!! My name is KayDubEff or KWF, and I'm ready to take on my first challenge. I am a LONG time lurker of Nerd Fitness (like...before Steve began focusing full time on it long...), and I've made regular excuses for why I couldn't or wouldn't or didn't manage to make the large changes in my life that I've wanted. Truthfully, I was just lazy. But for the past 2 months or so, I've been able to focus on working toward my goals. My plan is to help focus that energy into this great facilitator of AWESOMENESS, the 6 week challenge. I need your help
  11. Intro Hi all, I'm a long time lurker from the Netherlands. After joining the Academy I decided to also register here and join in on the challenge fun. My quest is to become more scout-like. My opening post at the academy board was: I am and used to be the tank. Big, strong and slow. At my university (many years ago) I was a prop at the rugby team. Every friend that moves I help, and I always take the washing machine, on some occasions alone. Years later I took up fencing and kendo, both more DEX oriented sports. Lately I started running a lot, 5k, 10k and sometimes more. Unfortunately, my
  12. I'm not really late. I signed up late but I have been working out. For example today I hiked for nearly 2 1/2 hours. My primary goal is to get my 5K time down to around 35 minutes in the next 5 weeks and work up to 10K distance by 10 weeks. My two angles of attack are 1) running--increasing distance/stamina first, then decreasing time and 2) nutrition--I'm stuck in a stoveless hotel room for at least 2 more weeks and possibly the next 10. I have a fridge and a microwave. Lately I've either been eating a lot of junk or not eating much of anything. There's actually a 3rd thing: getting enough
  13. I've been on a hardcore personal challenge since January 2014, I've gone from 207 lbs to 155 lbs to date. I just found Nerd Fitness and I'm ready to keep challenging myself. Main Quest: I want to get my body fat % down from 26% to 20-21% Missions: Travel at least 5 miles per day on foot (whether walking or running) Keep a daily caloric deficit around 800 Drink at least 8 cups of water per day & consume at most 1 soda per weekLife Quest: Save some money from each paycheck toward building my awesome gaming computerMotivation: For the past 5 years I've let my health fall by the wayside as
  14. I recently discovered Nerd Fitness, and even more recently discovered the challenges. And even though this challenge has already started, I want to hold myself accountable by joining in. I'm figuring out how all the points for character leveling work, so... I'll update this post once I have things sorted in that department. INTRODUCTION: Who am I? I'm a freelance editor, aspiring author, and stay-at-home mom to a nerdling. I have been more than slacking in the self-care department these past couple years, and it's time to turn that around. So. What's my quest? MAIN QUEST: I want
  15. Greetings everyone! This is actually my second time trying a challenge, first time I'm going to complete one. I recently graduated college and due to finals and then a very blurry senior week I have fallen off my running track, but excuses are in the past. Now it's time for action! Main Quest Run a sub 1:30:00 half marathon Current PR: 1:34:37 Boot Camp Workout 1) Get back in the rhythm of running. That means lacing up and heading off 4 times a week for the first two weeks. I'll plan out more specific runs/workouts for the last four weeks after I see how behind I am. 2) Get in those y
