  1. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Chrissa and I have been lurking around the blog and e-mail lists since discovering the rebellion last September. Up until now, I mainly read Steve's posts and take what I can from them occasionally tossing out a comment here and there. Nerd Fitness has inspired me a lot over the last several months and I'm finally ready to step it up and take my place among my fellow rebels. I've never been very good at joining in but I believe this is going to be the most important challenge for me because it will teach me how to be a better part of a community. You
  2. Will be checking in here at least once a week, and possibly daily. Long term goal - daily fitness and healthy eating are habitual, like breathing. Result of this habit are endless with the obvious being weight loss and healthy weigh maintenance, able to wear clothes that do not pinch and bind and I feel GREAT. I have energy and positive outlook on life as a result of making these changes. Short term goal - lose 5+ lbs by 7/6, more would be better, but I know I need to start with small obtainable milestones to be successful. How will I achieve this short term goal that will effectively
  3. Hello again, everyone! Last time I started on the last week of the challenge, so this will be my first full challenge In honor of this, and for the fact I'm going to graduate from Stanford during this challenge (June 16th woot! ), I really want to push myself. Last challenge I started 80-20 Paleo, and so far I'm sticking to it. Now I'm setting some new goals: Goal 1: Jog/Run for 2.5 mi or 50 mins (STA: 4 | DEX: 1) I've never done a marathon in my life. I hardly ever run since I'm mildly asthmatic and my legs are angled differently. However, I feel that I use those reasons as excuses
  4. Dear Monks, I am currently participating in my first six week challenge with all you most excellent nerd fitness folks. I'm a ranger with Monk inclinations and our next mini challenge is to reach out and find an accountability buddy within another guild with a common goal. I am in most desperate need of yoga to center myself, calm my raging anxiety, and stretch out all of my muscles from weight lifting and the pavement pounding of a good run. Won't you be my neighbor in this endeavor? My goal is to spend a minimum of one hour this week practicing yoga. We can break it down into whate
  5. Hello! I'm a new Ranger, and as other posts have mentioned here, our mini-challenge is to find someone in another guild who is good at what they do and make noticeable improvement towards our goal. My goals are both vague and concrete (i.e., they're habit building rather than accomplishment-driven), BUT one thing I need help with is developing a good Tai-Chi workout or a new yoga routine that I can do at the park. If you can help me think of a fun and amusing reason why one might have to do said exercise while trying to escape a cave, even better. Part of my challenge is to escape a 300 mil
  6. I'm new to all of this, but here goes! Starting an accountability group! Team LEVEL UP is for peeps who have lost weight, or have weight to lose and are ready to take this challenge to the next level. LEVEL UP PEEPS! I'm Strongmama and I have lost 180 lbs. I still have some more to lose, but my focus is eating clean and training mean. If/when I lose more pounds, it will be great, but the number on the scale is not my primary focus. I want the numbers on my dumb-bells to go UP! Here are my before and current pics. Feel free to post pics, so at the end of challenge, you'll have a good co
  7. Hi there! Sooooo it sounds cool when I say, "I live in Dubai and work as a freelance photographer and yoga instructor." Life here can be pretty difficult, though, and I've been developing a lot of bad habits here. What really sucks is that before I moved here last fall I was in the best shape of my life. I was lifting, running to train for marathons, eating a very careful diet, playing on volleyball and dodgeball rec leagues, hitting the gym, and had a boyfriend that was an athlete, too. And now I find myself surrounded by mega-brunches (these are no joke, they cost up to $170 and have u
  8. Only just figured out where this forum is (link in the spreadsheet didn't work) so I didn't create a thread for us 'til now. Right, I'm Sandy,a nd I'm a mucksavage because most of my hobbies involve mud. Next?!
  9. Day One: Wednesday, March 13, 2013 Technically, this isn't Day One at NerdFitness for me. That was last Sunday. But this is close enough. DIET: Instead of recording everything I eat (because I'll forget and it's a pain in the ***) I'm going to record whenever I break Paleo. Since I'm still easing into it, I'm going to allow myself three meals to eat basically what I want every week, and I won't freak over minor lapses. For now. Dinner: Baked potato. That may or may not be Paleo, I'm not really sure. Snacks: I had one cracker at Mock Trial practice. Totally not worth it. EXERCISE: I'm still
  10. As the sun rises over the distant city skyline, I know it is time to begin my journey. All the signs point to me getting my a$$ in gear and really pushing forward. Before I really go involved in Nerd Fitness, I made a pact on my own. I spent the 6 weeks of lent transforming myself. I did not give anyting up, per say, but I did push myself to change. I started the lent season with the goals of loosing weight & gaining physical and spirtual strength. I got 2 out three. I did not loose any weight, but I did loose inches and gained strength, but physically and spiritually. I am using thi
  11. Day 1: Goal 1 Progress - No run. 0/3 for the week Goal 2 Progress - Did the TBT: Tabata 1 workout. Starts with 10 minutes of mobility drills as a warmup. Then did 4 exercises. Each exercise was done for 8 rounds before moving on to the next exercise. And of course, because it was Tabata, each round was 20 seconds of as many reps as possible followed by 10 seconds of rest and repeart. There was a minute of rest between exercises. Like other workout video-type programs, they have different levels depending on what you can do. When I l
  12. The Startlingly Stalwart Sixes is an accountability team working towards six-packs together. Within this group, we will be pairing off in one-on-one accountability partners, but here is where we can keep up general advice, ideas and progress. What's working? What's not? Where to start? These are all things we will track here. WHAT WE KNOW When it comes to abs, diet is crucial! General advice: Less empty carbs. More protein. More vegetables. PARTICIPATING Sign up by commenting to the thread with your general starting stats, body type, and gender. If you're comfortable, feel free
  13. Diet/Fitness : 90% Paleo food intake each week (avoiding allergens) [+3CON] I have a long history of chronic migraines. Over the past few weeks I've discovered that eliminating foods through a paleo diet seems to be clearing things up radically. ... and then I went out for wings and beer on the week off and ended up feeling horrible. So... in the general interest of my health I I'm going to adhere as strictly as I can to a paleo lifestyle for the long haul. I'll be photo-journaling my food through out this challenge and I will make note of any foods that I eat or drink that aren't paleo. Th
  14. In keeping with the 4th rule of the rebellion, this group is all about food. Whether you're going paleo, cutting a particular item out of your diet, or starting to learn how to cook. If one of your goals involves food, this is the group for you! Members and goals: Leader: Thirster42. Goal: Learn how to cook via The 4 Hour Chef.Member #1: Wirilome. Goal: Track food using Loseit.comMember #2: Startrtl. Goal: Cutting carbs by going paleo, no more soda or beer.Member #3: RedSonja. Goal: Eath 90% paleo, 3 meals a day (no snacking)Member #4: emeraldxemmie. Goal: 95% paleo, no more soda.Mem
  15. A daily battle log. General Goals (more specific goals as I continue on): Transition to 80-90% paleo in the coming weeksWorkout consistently 6 days a week (one of those days being a lighter 'recovery' day) Get to 130lbs (-50lbs, starting weight is 180lbs)Edited 2/13/13 Now that I've gotten into this with a little more I understand what is meant by setting really specific non-weight goals (although I think a generalized ballpark weight goal is still a good thing to have) so as of today here are my revised goals: Strict Paleo diet but with the allowance of 1-2 non-paleo items each week (like
  16. Man am I getting old. Where was I? Oh yeah Ahhh Zombies! The apocalypse is upon us. I need a team to battle and survive this coming horror. They need to be a rag tag group. Hmm I'm guessing Adventurers would be good for this. I need someone who is going to rock it. Boom! Samlam looks good for this. And to compliment her, I need someone full of win. I've heard a young cook by the name of Angeftw has what we need. I like those odds. Next up has to be someone sweet but tough. This lass around the way called Sugarwaffle can definitely handle her own. All of these whippersnappers need to be corra
