  1. New Year greetings to all, from your friendly neighborhood Tolkien-obsessive mythologist. Having survived the past quite strange and difficult year through sheer bloody-mindedness (augmented with some NF challenges, of course), I now find myself back in my own hobbit hole after much travel and adventure and toil. The start of the new year is bringing me all sorts of fresh beginning energy. In an effort to avoid squandering that energy, I am going to set myself a challenge of simplicity, routines, and quiet joys. A challenge of hobbitry, if you will, after a year requiring full-on wizardry
  2. Here I go again, back after a long absense. Ever since I was finally able to binge-watch both seasons of The Mandalorian last month, (and I'm now watching them all again, just a bit slower this time), I've been enthralled by the whole 'this is the way' mantra of our hero. I've always considered myself a 'bounty hunter' in the line of Boba Fett, but now there's so much more information than just the few random scenes of a barely-there character in the original trilogy. So I've been trying to figure out what exactly is 'the Way' that will work best for me. - a method to help me wit
  3. My challenges lately have been kind of disoriented and unfocused. I was looking for something I could use as a theme to orient them around (in hopes of making them more focused and more oriented towards long-term goals), and I noticed a lot of people really digging back into the gamification/RPG realm of NF. I decided I would give it a try again. When I first joined NF, I made a half-hearted attempt at gamification in my challenges and then gave up. Still nailing down how I want to deal with points/levels, but I have decided on a character to orient my challenges around. I came acr
  4. A little over a month ago, my sister almost died; having to be rushed to the hospital. It gave me flashbacks about how my mom died less than 2 years ago and the stuff that I said to her body before the coroners came to pick her up. When my mom was laying there, arm all cramped up because of gout from her terrible eating; I expressed a lot of things. But the most important thing was that I was going to do something that she never did: Love myself. My mom never cared about herself and her death was a big wake-up call. I was still in school so I had to finish that, and then clean
  5. I’m the married parent of 3 and soon-to-be 4 kids. I’m an adventurer at heart. 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 point I’m strong enough to carry my whole family somewhere. That has become more difficult as the years go on but I ca
  6. This oddysey of mine is all about finding the best version of myself. In order to do this i need to build some strength, do some speech therapy and do some walking. Goal 1: Strength In order to develop some basic muscle strength and get used to a routine i set a simple goal of doing a few excercises. 3 sets wide squats 3 sets of incline push ups Planking Reward, if i complete 80% i earn a strength point I didn't specify the reps because i mean to set a baseline at day 1, and build up everyday. Goal 2: Distance In order to get somewhere
  7. AIM: To be strong enough for adventuring as soon as it's safe. And by adventuring I mean leaving this 5 mile stretch of coast and visiting friends & a museum or art gallery or something. GOALS: Core strength for travel, walking, & carrying luggage. (with partially healed chronic back problem.) Specifically: - can sit for 3 hours without spasming - can walk for an hour on easy terrain - can carry rucksack & kit in that time Mood Boosting: I'd like my magic back please. I've given myself permission to play with fun things wi
  8. I don't really trust this new year. I'm not trying to punish it for what 2020 did, but I am trying to protect myself by preparing for the possibility that this year could be horrible. Absolutely horrible. Maybe wonderful at times, but... (squints in suspicion) I don't trust it yet. So I'm going to focus on exercising and eating healthy foods to keep me strong and healthy so I can enjoy all the beautiful moments that are going to happen like people sharing videos of their dogs, and new baby announcements, and the feeling of warm towels right out of the dryer, and the sound of quiet in the win
  9. This challenge will look very familiar to those who have been following me for a while, but I felt compelled to return to it because I felt very in my "true nature" during this challenge. There are only a few changes to the previous challenges to reflect more current methods for reaching my goals, but the essence of the challenge will remain the same: I have been wrestling with the urge to return to the LotR book series (again), so what better way to motivate me than to theme my challenge after LotR. As a way to bounce back from the challenges of 2020, I could use some inspiration
  10. Storm Bella raged through the night. In the morning, Mr and the Enting did a boundary walk to look for fallen trees and other damage. While I cleaned up our breakfast and got a fire going in the wood stove, I considered what a strange and eventful few weeks we’ve had since we been called to Owlshire. Boiler and fuel supply problems, an historical flood, unexpected severe allergies to sections of the house, leaks in buildings, now a major wind storm... all within the already surreal year that is 2020. But the year was turning, and we’d made it through midwinter in the Forest, and th
  11. Alright here I go, my first five weeks of 2021! Getting straight to the point, my 3 goals for this challenge are: 1. CONSISTENTLY consume 3L (96oz) of water each day. - I have already been doing this off and on. One time I had a one month streak! The goal here for me is consistency, habit, something I don't think about, I just do. - I believe getting enough water provides a natural cleanse and promotes weight loss which is something I'm also striving for. - I suffer with eczema, extremely dry skin, and inflammation and believe more water in my system may help with this - Curr
  12. Hey Rebels! (Love that moniker.) Philosophy post-grad (PhD) student, writer/author, pagan/witch/actual druid, fantasy fan, dancer/performer/storyteller, lover of elipses, and absolutely fascinated by the idea of travelling as I can't sit still, but earning money is a hassle so I tend to conjure travel opportunities by getting teaching work in random places! I've been occasionally reading NF for a couple years now, and only TODAY discovered the forums. *shakes head* But it's good timing, really... Fancy a story? I spent over a decade in a relationship with a l
  13. Hi 😁 I'm back... again! The forums have changed a lot in my absence, it seems! My life has had a couple changes as well: - I've decided to switch from a PhD to a Master's, since I realized I wasn't enjoying myself very much, and - I finished all my coursework for said Master's and just have my final project left! I'll be starting that quite soon. It's just a paper, so hopefully nothing too stressful! (*knocks on every piece of wood in the house*) I've been on a Lord of the Rings kick lately, so in keeping with that and also my previous challenges' goals of
  14. Stagnation is Death Annals of a Bladesinger A haunting melody weaves its way through the quiet forest. An alien in her homeland with a mind touched by the hand of darkness, the elven wizard hones her dangerous dance, ever vigilant, ever mindful. She practices her art not just for the protection of her people, but to soothe her tormented soul with the meditative, otherworldly whistle of bladesong. Journey to Bladesinger Master 2020 Stats: STR 10 || DEX 11 || CON 11 || INT 15 || WIS 16 || CHA 12 2020 Level: Bladesinger Apprentice Go
  15. YULETIDE GREETINGS TO ALL! This quote from last year's holiday challenge should serve well enough as my introduction. Naturally, like everyone else, I've struggled to hold on to who I really am in this nightmare year (which is why it was all just too much trouble to write another intro, to be honest). Once the plague cancelled pretty much most of Western civilization, my normal and regular travel, ballroom dancing, and hiking fell off quite precipitously, leaving me with nothing much to do but worry. I guess will add 'writer' to that list of self-definitions, though, as t
  16. I’m formerly Ann of Vries, often Adventurer and sometimes Ranger. In summary: a 41 year old American emigrated to the UK. Mum of Enting, a 2.5 year old agent of chaos. Kitchen witch, gamer (mostly LARP and TT RPGs), knitter/spinner, writer. On November 17th, my family (finally!) completed an Epic Master Quest—to move from central London to our woodland dream property. Now we’re settling into our new home—dubbed Owlshire—in a beautiful part of the Wye/Dean. The Challenge My goals for the challenge is transitioning from the moving/unpacking phase
  17. I loved reading Calvin and Hobbes as a kid and still do as an adult. A brief introduction: I'm Snarkyfishguts, an adventurer learning to stand still during this pandemic. My preferred pronouns are she/her, but will also accept they/them, but never he/him. I like cookies, unicorns, and corny puns/jokes. THE CHALLENGE 1. Set goals and action plan for 2021 and focus on what I'm actually willing to do vs making a beautiful plan that I will read over cookies from time to time and think "That's a nice looking plan. Who's gonna do THAT?" 2. Practice t
  18. The plan is simple. Nutrition Track calories and meals with MFP and/or journal (first 2 weeks) One fruit per day (0/21) Not rush eating and listen to what my body says Body Walk everyday. (0/21) Gym 3 times per week, starting this wednesday. (0/8) Mind Journal everyday. (0/21) Read 30' everyday (0/21) Soul Yoga, breathing, meditation everyday, at least 5', or a single mindful pose (0/21) Miscelanea Backup all my photos to googlephotos before losing that free real estate. (0.5/1) Start my blog, rambling about stuff, it's just
  19. What does Stronkey want, I mean really want, for Christmas? Has Stronkey been a good boy or a bad boy? What could Stronkey do better in 2021? It's that time of year when the days grow short and cold. Huddled by the warm glow of a fire (or computer screen) we ponder the year we're leaving behind and the year to come. We think about what needs to change and what we want and then we write letters to Santa and if we're good enough we get presents. And if we're bad we make plans and promises to do better next year. This challenge I'll just be doing wh
  20. This challenge is brought to you by my favorite murder grandpa, Minoru Suzuki. Also known as "the main who nailed the perfect facial reaction to the year 2020" The man is a kickass pro wrestler and MMA pioneer, but I won't bore you with his resume (which you can find on Wikipedia) or his quirks (which you can find in a hilarious page on TV Tropes). The point is, he is still wrestling a hard hitting style in a hard hitting company at a top level and still seems incapable of putting on an average-or-worse match. He is also 52 years of age and a smoker.
  21. Since this is an all guild, I’ll reintroduce myself. I’m a leader and the father of the Adventurers of the Lucky Vale. I’m an arthritic former wrestler/wrestling coach/runner/teacher who switched careers and is trying to make some headway (or at least breathing space) in this crazy world as I work remotely while remote schooling my boys, Woody and Rex, teaching my preschool daughter Bo Peep, and help prepare our lives for Adventurer #6 coming in less than 7 weeks. I’m a huge nerd, I love languages and kids, and also have a small zoo. I primarily train based on events, partic
  22. ^^ Live footage of me this week. I am going to try and keep this challenge stupid simple, because I have a lot going on this month. This week I have papers, studying, and a big job interview, next week I have finals and more final papers due. Then, I plan on learning, recording, and producing some Christmas music for my grandmother, which will be fun but take a lot of time and effort, since I have not attempted anything like that in years. But I really want to send her something personal, because due to COVID, she is not able to be around much family this year. With any luck, the
  23. The background: Welcome to my challenge! I am Sylvaa, one of the Adventurer GL's. If you a new here, a few quick facts about me. I'm a mother of 4 children, 2 cats, and 1 dog, but a grandmother to 1. I work as a medical consultant, which usually requires me to travel 4 days a week, but this year has obviously resulted in me working from home full-time. I'm a casual WoW and D3 player. I like puzzles (word, number, and jigsaw), cooking, baking, and reading. I like any activities that require me to be outdoors, not limited to hiking, OCR's, and running. The year so far:
  24. My account goes negative about 300 dollars every paycheck heck every week. And it because I eat out so much. I have a problem. So this challenge I'm going to work on my cooking skills and cook very simple meals for every meal. Breakfast lunch and dinner even If its oatmeal or toast. I've also finally started college again at GCU and working my bachelor's in buisness so I guess in working on wisdom too. And I'm taking medication for depression so that's a big step for me too. Learning to balance college from home and a full time job is going to be tough so if you guys ha
  25. This is my first 4-week challenge! Edit: I just wanted to add a little intro. One of the things I like about this site is that I'm in the company of other nerds, so I thought maybe I'd share some of the stuff I'm nerdy about. Firefly definitely far-and-away is my favorite thing in pop culture. Comics-wise, I really like Saga (and to a lesser extent other stuff by Brian K. Vaughan). For superheroes, Black Panther is my guy. I've read every issue of his solo titles, starting with Jungle Action (still working through team titles). I guess my work is also kind of nerdy. I'm a research scienti
