  1. I'm Stronkey Kong -- neutral good human/wizard adventurer/warrior hybrid. I made a list for Santa during the holiday challenge. That is now 'The Big List' that I'm trying to achieve goals on to improve life, health, and fitness. Right now the big things on my plate are strength training, getting outdoors and walking/hiking, cooking/eating healthier, painting/drawing, and buying a home (my Wizard's tower). I left off last challenge building a foundation of barbel training, batch cooking, and just put an offer on a house. Here's the big list: (spoilered cuz i
  2. Once, an elven lord, desperate for a child of his own, turned to drow worlock when all other magic failed to help his wife concieve. The powerful drow gave the elven man what he wanted...or so he thought. When the child, concieved out of dark magic, began to grow older, the elven couple noticed a strong power, a strange darkness to their child. When they took their young daughter to an old, scholarly wizard, his prognosis was dire: the girl was touched by the hand of Darkness itself, a force that would consume her before she reached adulthood. If she tried to contain it, it would poison her fr
  3. I'm coming off of a pretty successful challenge at the beginning of the year, but that is in part because I made my goals super simple and not terribly difficult. I wanted to build a couple solid daily habits, and since I have kept them up without reporting here every day over the last week I suppose that means I'm on the right track so far. So this challenge I am keeping the same format, just adding another daily habit. 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. I am trying to get ready for longer hikes in the next few months. Last challenge I usually did be
  4. Hi everyone! Snarky here. Pronouns are she/her. I like sunshine, reading a book, and finding creative ways to avoid responsibility. This is the cookbook link. Last challenge there were a lot of contributions and I'm happy to continue adding to it. Whether it's your own recipe or someone else's, we'll share it and credit the creator. This is the exercise and nutrition plan in the spoiler.
  5. Welcome! I’m the married parent of 4 kids aged 0-7. I’m ultimately an adventurer at heart, though I am experimenting with toe dips into the Rangers and Assassins this time around after 3 1/2 years. 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 World training system, and try to ensure that at any
  6. I'm Ranger Hal (female). I do adventury things: hiking, climbing, search and rescue. I'm not terribly happy about how last challenge went. I did some stuff, but I also didn't do some stuff. So maybe I need to work on some of those mindset things. Which I have been avoiding because I'm not terribly interested in being a "superhero." And redefining my identity is big and scary. But I can change it for a day. So, today I am a person who gets up 5 minutes after the first alarm and does a morning workout. Today I am a person who does the sink full of dishes. Things I'm working on
  7. Greetings fellow Rebels, this is Rebel Pure, transmitting from a secret Rebel base in Perth, Western Australia. It is a strange and wondrous thing to think that at the end of this challenge I will finally be able to return to university. Before that happens I need to get myself back on track though. Comparing my Mood Tracker for the last few weeks compared to how it was at the start of the year times have felt average when before they were productive and joyous. How can I get those times to return to me? Midway through this challenge I will be attempting an adventure -
  8. Greetings all! I’m sliding in here late, on the last day of Week Zero (yes, I know, the challenge has already started for most, but my challenges start on MONDAYS dammit). My previous few challenges have been focused around trying to establish home routines that support my current reality of post-grad-school unemployment, and I’ve had a bit of success, I guess. I had planned on continuing that for this challenge, but, well, life happened, and I now find myself at the beginning of a quite unexpected adventure Spoiler for the (kind of long) story: Since instead of puttering a
  9. This challenge, I'm going with a winter theme. To promote growth, sometimes you have to let the ground settle, rest, and heal. Last year ended up being a whirlwind of activity, selling our house and moving into a rental while waiting to build our dream house. Last challenge ended with us requesting our builder to draw up our contract to get on the build list for this spring. *Sigh of relief* I've seen a lot of progress over the past few months. While I don't want to lose any progress, I do want to make sure the progress I've made isn't just due to momentum. So this cha
  10. I decided in 2021 to do a year-long challenge. I didn't know if I should just move my challenge over into the next challenge and keep it all as one thread or not. But, like, look at the challenge number... I can't blow that off. My goals are going to be the same thing for an entire year, and every time I do my goals, I get stat points. The reason for this was spurned on because my sister almost died back in November because of diabetes-complicated shit. After having lost 5 family pets and my mom, the last thing I need is my literal only family member dying.
  11. Spezzy's Side Quest Special Alright, friends! This challenge is going to be a bit different because my life is going to be kind of all over the place during it. 2 weeks in (3 weeks including zero week) I have to head back south of The Wall, and then I have a ton of stuff to do in order to get ready to come back north later on this year. So I am kind of imagining this challenge as when you're in a game and you come to a town and need to take care of a ton of side quests, collect items, learn new fighting techniques, etc., before you can get back on the road a
  12. Hi everyone, For the last few weeks I've been feeling pretty blah, low energy, and uninterested in everything (pretty strong signs a wave a depression is coming), and I've also had almost zero physical activity for the last month or so because my dog doesn't want to walk very far in the snow and I just haven't put any effort into home workouts. I know getting some exercise will help get me out of this depression funk, but everything workout related appears super boring, lonely, or too hard, and I want some kind of supportive community. I googled fitness for artists and then fitness for
  13. As you know if you’ve been following the Tales of Owlshire, that—quite unexpectedly—I was asked to take on a full time, ~6 month narrative designer contract in January. Although I’d hadn’t been actively pursuing a return to the working world right now, this is career direction I had been hoping to go someday so we seized on the opportunity to make it work. It has rather shaken up our 2021 plans at Owlshire, but as we like to say in the House of Owlshire “a plan is just a place in which manage change.” In any case, now that I’m navigating full time employment for the first time sin
  14. Good day fellow Rebels. Last challenge, I made some observations about goals that were lacking, and I selected three: reading, breathing (specifically Wim Hof Method breathing) and journaling. The other goals have essentially become daily habits now because they have been part of my routine for quite some time. So if you have been following me for a while, assume that the rest of my usual daily habits and routines that have been mentioned in the past are now expected. And so I begin: Goal 1: Read Harder and More Often -- I love to read. I love b
  15. This is the Way - Building Habits for Wellness My Kaizen technique of making gradual changes over time seemed to work well for my first challenge of 2021, so I'm trying it in Part II. There are three areas I want to focus on. 5 points per week that I'm successful in each goal, plus opportunities to earn additional points each week with 'bonus' wellness tasks. Sleep I need to get back to an earlier bedtime, so I get a decent amount of sleep each night. Adequate rest is essential for health, wellness, and weight loss. Over the next 5 weeks I will gradually incr
  16. Well, I flopped right out of the last challenge, heh. Work is not good right now, so I am choosing how I respond. Goals: - work with my health team - focus on positive connections - have fun with my creativity I'll get into more details as we go. Let's do this!
  17. Erick the Red: No Zero Days I've done a few of these challenges over the past few years, and had some pretty good successes. Also failed more than a couple times. This round I am starting slow and simple. Two clear-cut daily goals to solidify daily habits. I plan to check in daily or near-daily to update my progress, and maybe go over some details. I appreciate feedback and positive peer-pressure. 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. I am glad to have a job, but working from home has meant that I sometimes go two or three days without stepping ou
  18. Hello Friends! If you're new to my threads, feel free to check out my battle log for some backstory. It turns out being an infectious disease doctor in a global pandemic comes with a fair amount of stress and over-work. I'm trying to regroup and dig deeper into self care and healing. Goals: 1) Breathwork - I found a teacher named Eryn, who leads frequent courses on breathwork. I've been using this three part active breath to really help calm my nervous system and convince my body that it's safe. It's allowed me to do some deep processing of wounds that
  19. Goals: 1. Eat breakfast at home daily This seems like it would be easy, but I live next to a Tim Horton's and I'm a weak bitch for iced capps. 2. 2 am bedtime As it stands I don't get enough sleep, I nap constantly and am always tired and if you check the timestamp on this post, it's a little around 4:30 am right now... 3. Yoga once a week I'm not as bendy as I used to be and it's making it harder to do things like tie my shoes, do my job and move in simple ways. Also, decent way to workout that doesn't really mess up my feet more than they alrea
  20. The core idea is a bit of shock treatment, making use of the New Year momentum while rapidly dropping the extra weight gained during this lockdown and the holidays. That should be January, then settling into less extreme and more sustainable measures come February. Workouts: Need something focused on rapid weight loss, so less strength training, more cardio. Since running or skip rope are out of the question due to winter and lockdown, HIIT will have to do instead. Darebee's 30 days of HIIT Advanced program ticks all those boxes, while providing a structured sequence and pretty short (but
  21. Fun fact: every time I take one of those "what class are you quizzes?" I get Sorcerer. I guess it makes sense - I'm one of those former gifted children and while I've never really excelled at physical activities, I'm not the worst person in the race. Sorcerer is a kind of nice fit for me. It plays on the idea that I spend a lot more time learning than I do exercising, learning comes easy to me, but I'm more capable of physical activities than, say, a Warlock. I'm jumping on the bandwagon, working on developing my D&D character and setting myself up to work towards hitting max
  22. It's been a while since I re-introduced myself. I'm Stronkey Kong (for now). Over the 7+ years I've been on the NF forums, I've previously been known as (from most to least recent) Chris Tarly, Brogo, Curl Brogo, and Darwin's Demon. The focus of most of my previous challenges has been some combination of gaining strength and losing weight. While I've got some benefits from strength training, my weight loss battle is mostly a losing battle full of frustrations. Recently I've been reading about Intuitive eating and Health at Every Size, and have been focusing health and being more a
  23. Yes, this is the artist formerly known as Phoenix Burning returning after a rather extended absence. In our last episode, I was preparing for competition in the World Championships of Taekwondo. That never happened. I ended up getting seriously ill, having a surgery, and spending the next year and a half feeling sorry for myself, avoiding fitness, and eating my feelings. I am still in a place where my willpower is pretty beaten up (and largely being used by my latest adventure: grad school!), but I know I need to do something to get out of this funk and get back to my best self. In view o
  24. When I started out with Nerd Fitness, I thought maybe I fit into the Adventurer guild based on my activities, but I picked the Rangers, well, mostly because I have imagined myself as a ranger of one kind or another for years. But after being there for a year, I realize that it was probably the right choice. I want to do all the things. Over the year, I’ve done some running, body weight workouts, rucking, kettlebell workouts, pull-ups, mobility workouts, and probably more that I’m not remembering. But right now, I need to focus, and it needs to be on Adventurer things. I’m in a mountaineering c
  25. Before one undertakes an adventure they are best advised to prepare for it. Not too much preparation though. Otherwise, where is the adventure? This challenge is all about preparing for my adventures in life. (No Pure, reaaaaally) While my Epic Quest for Adventure details both fitness/health related quests and non-fitness/health related quests I'm going to try and keep my challenges specific to fitness and health, though I'll still mention other things in these threads as well, they just won't be the subject of them. This challenge I will be working towards
