  1. Y'all - hold my hand. I'm doing something a little scary this challenge. I'm going off-roading. I've spent the last couple days rereading my old NF challenges (which was a fun trip down memory lane) and realized that while I've done some kick ass challenges over the last 8 years, I consistently fail once I fall off the boards. And while I love the NF boards, I don't want to spend my whole life always replaying the same game: doing weight-loss challenge after weight-loss challenge. I want to win the damn game and do new things. Once upon a time, I thought that meant 1.
  2. Rule #2 - When you join, you're in for life. I joined NerdFitness over 10 years ago. While my interaction with the NF Community has waxed and waned over the years, it's always something I've carried with me, and have been happy to return to. Now I find myself at the end of one journey and the beginning of another, and I know that the habits and lifestyle I build here at the start will shape the next chapter of my life. I just finished a 4,500 mile self-supported bike tour of the United States. From May to August of 2021, I rode my bicycle from my home in Central Virgini
  3. Greetings, and welcome to all! I’m a married parent of 4 kids aged 0-8. I’m ultimately an adventurer at heart, though I train similar to a lot of Rangers (and I’m something of a Druid Paladin which is also something of an equivalent to a Ranger). I love hiking, exploring, traveling, and other fun things with the family. Since shortly before joining Nerdfitness, my physical training is typically built around injury rehabilitation (which happens a bit more often due to autoimmune arthritis) and training to be able to travel, explore, and play with my family. I have a pretty effective Disney Wo
  4. The weather has cooled off finally, and it is time to hit the trails! for this challenge, I am going to 1. Walk 55 miles. This is a busy time of year for me, so I know I cant make a “complete x for z days a week”. But if I aim for a number, that gives me flexibility. I may walk a half mile one day, and three another. 55 is a good number to get me outdoors and moving in the crisp air. 2. Finish a picture book. I’m not talking about the book itself, because I have learned not to do this. Picture books are typically 32 pages, including end papers and t
  5. The last couple of challenges I did (not the last challenge because I didn't do one), I noticed a pattern. The first two weeks would be great. I'd get 90%-100% of stuff done. The next two weeks it would be less and by the final week, I was barely doing anything. And because I didn't do anything last challenge, my exercise was pretty minimal, just a couple of weekend hikes. And that's not enough to keep up my fitness level for SAR and scrambling, plus snowshoe season is coming soon. So I'm going to do just one thing for this challenge: ruck two days a week and walk at least four more days for a
  6. Hello all, and welcome to my little corner of chaos. As those of you who were following along last challenge know, I a new job, which I am starting tomorrow, and I have just recently returned to working out after a mild back injury (yay!). That being said, I am stripping my usual challenge wayyyyy back, because I am going to be BUSY. I have some busy weekends coming up, a lot of catching up to do with my new job (using a system I have not used before), and I have a personal training certification exam in mid-November. So, those will be where most of my focus goes. Someday I will learn not to o
  7. I started working on this concept a couple of years ago. Shelved it for a while. Brought it back as an RPG but there wasn't much interaction and I still wanted to tell this story so I shifted the medium. I originally had beats for challenges and stuff but I tend to hold onto massive ideas in my head and mull them over until it feels right. I follow the Bukowski idea of writing: I didn't want to be pretentious or have to write it and re-write it. I didn't want to have to proofread and show it to other people before I went back to the drawing board.
  8. I have landed in a new place, amidst a pile of boxes and chaos, in a new and uncharted part of town. It is exciting, but also exhausting. I do not want to waste this opportunity. I am still sore from my big move and I am not doing voluntarily anything requiring walking until the hurting stops. (I walked more than 70,000 steps over the course of the move, much of them up and down stairs. My calves are complaining loudly.) But once I recover, I want to explore this new place that I am in. For five months only, I have access to city buses and a part of the city I've never really visit
  9. With two successful challenges under my belt so far in 2021, I’m back and ready for another! ...Well. Actually. No. Not quite. Technically, I’m at the beach for the next two weeks. So… if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the sand with a piña colada in my Yeti right now. Sorry. 😬 But I’m not going to let all that good momentum go to waste! I’m definitely going to enjoy the hell out of this vacation, but I am committing to sticking to some of my goals, and hitting the ground running when I get back.

  11. Hello everyone! I am Aquarii, your resident element of chaos trying to learn how to become an element of controlled chaos 😂 For those of you who don't know me, hello! I love seeing new faces around here. For those of you who already know me, I am sorry. Jk. Welcome back, my wonderful friends. The last couple months have been pretty crazy. At the start of the last challenge, I left my job due to the environment spiraling into something very toxic. I have yet to find a new job, but I do have an interview coming up in a few days, and it happens to be for a place I would re
  12. Hello witches and wizards, and welcome back to Hogwarts this September! I'm Professor Annyshay, the current headmistress of Hogwarts. You've been sorted into your houses and are ready to tuck into a delicious feast. Now it's time for me to say a few brief words before we start the term. This year the houses will be working together to support general wellbeing. Gryffindor = Breathwork It takes courage for me to be present in my body without trying to change anything. Breathwork can be anywhere from 5-30 minutes. I'm aiming to do it most days of the week. Hufflepuff
  13. Hello. I am Stronkey Kong. I've been on NF for over eight years . I'm still fat and making the best of it. learning from my mistakes. 🤔 GOALS: MEDITATION+: Still practicing the Buddhism. Still on a meditation streak since March 21st. That's all fine and good, and is habit. Now I need to step it up and memorize the "King of Aspiration Prayers: Samantabhadra's Aspiration to Good Actions." The prayer/mantra itself is a guide to the essential meditation preliminary practices we do. It is also 259 lines long. But for the benefit of all sentient beings I will memorize it...
  14. Never been fantastic at forums and this is strangely making me nervous but I'm using my 20 seconds of courage and posting a thread! 🎉 The Daily 5..actually turned into 6 Spanish Goal Spend at least 15 min/day, 5 days a week advancing in the lessons Furry Player Goal Work with furry player 3 on the training skills he's learned to ingrain them. Do this daily. Physical Goal Workout 6 days / week: walk, ride, or strength train with the academy plan Eat healthy every day or make a conscious break (but no more than 2 in a row) Fi
  15. I am now officially post-hike and post-holidays after my awesome hiking (and campervan) holiday (see my Progress Woot thread). A tricky time here as we are back in lockdown and will be for more weeks and I am conscious of how post-hike blues can put me in a hole. So I need to focus on the 'things I learnt on the trail' and try and keep just a bit of that trail fitness. So what is it that is so enjoyable about an extended hike? The simplicity of each day. You know what you have to do (get to the next campsite) even if you may have obsticles in the way - that ridge wal
  16. Like Bilbo, I am alive...but I do seem to have been knocked on the head or something, because apparently I missed seeing the end of the last challenge But whatever. It's a new day and a new week and a new challenge, and I'm here for it. There is a spreadsheet. There will be a challenge write-up (in a day or two I hope). Here's to continuing Adventures!
  17. I am tired of hating myself. Setting myself 500 goals and then being upset when none are complete because the thought of them is so overwhelming I cannot begin just one. One of the intentions on my whiteboard is to let go of my past self and that combined with envy of other people because I feel like I'm not doing enough ultimately resolve in me doing nothing. So, all I have left is to be kind to myself. It's been a challenging month for me. University and work have been very stressful. I'm trying to finish things on a deadline for an SCA event at th
  18. Prelude: Summer came and went at Owlshire. We had a cool and often wet summer, sparked now and again by short heat waves. The garden didn’t fare well. Tomatoes in great promise, suddenly gone in their entirely in a few days after a blight hit. Anemic vegetables, little nibbling animals… There’s always next summer. At the beginning of the year, I started a full time “9-5” job for the first time in almost 10 years. Time slips away so much more quickly when one has a day job, even one they enjoy. Last week I turned 42. I’m an American word witch living in the
  19. This is a simple carry-forward of the goals I set last time after the house-sale goals were met. There are two groups of goals: habits and pre-move goals. Basically, my habits were abandoned while all my free time went to preparing the house for sale and purging, sorting, and packing, so I need to rebuild them. And there are a bunch of things I want to do here before our move-out date (which is just a week after the end of this challenge), so I have made a mini bucket list of sorts for this location. Copy-pasted, because why reinvent the wheel? Habits I would like to re
  20. You know what, I figured if this whole “beware how you name your challenge” turns out to be true all the time, might as well use it from the start to leverage greatness. Your focus determines your reality and all that stuff. I’ve been floundering for way too long, due to a combination of financial and mental health issues, on top of the obvious pandemic problem. These limited my options and severely undermined my willpower, which in turn made it really hard to focus on fitness, nutrition and working out. I was still around, because I know it’s better to hang around and stumble than
  21. Goals Follow run plan - 4 runs / 1 cross train / 1 yoga per week I know that seems excessive, but two of those run days are currently 1.5 miles and they never go above 3 throughout the plan Cross 5 things off my work to do list through the week I've gotten away from this and I need to get back on it. Work has definitely been piling up and if I don't focus, I get swamped Stop having my phone at the table during dinner This challenge has things going on. My husband will be out of town for a long weekend with friends, we
  22. Hello. I am Stronkey Kong. I've been on NF about eight years . I'm still fat and making the best of it. I just bought and started moving into a house... aka WIZARD TOWER. For the next two weeks I'm going to be packing and moving things over. Then there are projects coming. Lot's of projects. The house is 101 years old. It's in good condition and the living areas are solid, but the basement gets quite wet and even floods when it rains heavily. I now have grass to cut regularly. More chores than before and a bigger space to maintain and take care of. Also, I

  24. Ah, life. Life just really seems to love irony. My last challenge was themed around the phoenix. It was supposed to be symbolic of rising from the ashes, because my life had been so crazy and things were kinda starting to level out. Ah, the naivety of a 6-weeks ago me. What I didn't realize was that the last challenge was starting the fire. I wasn't about to rise from the ashes, I was about to burn it all down. NOW I can rise from the ashes So, the past few weeks at work spiraled out of control. And by spiraled out of control, I mean my boss became increasingly aggressive and verba
  25. Hello, I’ve been taking a bit of a break but I’m back. Short intro (for real): I’m a 41 year old American word witch living in the woods of England with my British husband and pre-school son. When I’m not writing (for work and pleasure), I’m usually tending to my garden, doing needlework of some sort, or exploring our local woodlands. Keeping it geeky, I’m also really into speculative fiction, roleplaying games (LARP and TT), and board games Prelude: By American/British cultural standards, my partner and I eat pretty clean here at Owlshire. So imagi
