  1. I'm going to set up a challenge that mostly doesn't require the computer and internet connection because we'll be on vacation for the last two weeks of the challenge!! I'll probably have my computer, but based on prior trips, I may not be have a decent internet connection unless we are in port. The goal is to draw 6 x week number cards from a mixed deck ... and then do them. So, week 1, that's 6 cards. And week 5 .... that's 30! If I don't clear the cards for the week, I have to pay a forfeit to church or charity to resurrect me. There's no guarantee that the resurrection spell will work correctly, and I could end up cursed or undead or ?? I can use the Goodberry spell (one per Omega 3 rich food eaten) to undo the damage of one card missed. Cardio: terrain cards Strength: monster/villain cards Balance/flexibility: yoga, BOSU ball workout, any other agility related thing I can think of Nutrition: Omega-3 rich foods (cast the "Goodberries" spell for each one) Social: Place and encounter cards Omega-3s: Itchy skin and thinning hair .... hoping that it is just because 1) I have gotten older and 2) I have been eating more animal-based fats than vegetable-based fats. And ... Alaska. Hello .... let's eat some salmon!! A friend of mine from the SCA commented that she needs to figure out how to "people" again, and I agree. Teaching doesn't engage the small talk and social interactions, and I need to practice before I get on a boat for an 10-day cruise full of strangers. I think I can mostly do this with my Pathfinder and MTG Forgotten Realms cards, plus the ones that I am making. HUM >>> might get creative and actually make my own "playing" cards for the "game"??? And .... I might pick up some tokens to represent healing potions. For someone who doesn't currently play D & D, I'm looking at a lot of game props to help with this. I'm still in search of the dragon. The dragon is a lifestyle and set of habits to support health and a "normal" body weight and BF%. Not quite there, but last challenge, I pretty much coasted on habits and didn't gain weight. Didn't lose it or reduce BF% .... so that means I AM getting close. It just needs some minor adjustments.
  2. Ranger Log, Entry 1 -20 F this morning, -28 F right now, and looking to hit -44 F tonight. I've just started a new semester, and went to the gym before my first class. 15-min walk to the gym, 1/2 mile warm-up, followed a modified Darebee workout focusing on abs, arms, and cardio. Did some cool-down walk and stretching. Total time: about 1 hour. Trickiest thing is keeping nutrition on track. I'm cutting out fancy coffees and trying to calculate serving size more accurately. On the plus side, I've completely revamped my pantry so it's nearly totally paleo, and no junk food. I'm kind of dependent on measurements for progress because I'm pretty sure my scale needs re-calibrated and I've yet to figure the best way to do that. I really hate having my pictures taken, but I'm toying with the idea of a youtube channel (private) video-log as a means of visually tracking progress. MWF I have a 7am Multi-Fitness Conditioning Class at the student gym with my WingSister. This time of year it is HARD to stay dedicated, and this was the only class that worked with my schedule. Planning ahead!
  3. Alrighty, so I am back once again, trying to get any kind of momemtum going. #1 Food: Paleo, no added sugar #2 Lifting: 2x Week, Continue NRoLfW plan #3 Walking/Hiking: 2x Week minimum Starting Stats Weight: 163.3 lbs Body Fat % (per scale): 42% Waist: 35/40 Hips 42 Thighs 37 Neck 13 Calf 14 Bicep 10 Bust 40/36
  4. Heyo! I've actually been a member for a year, but that's been more maintenance than progress. Never really looked at the forums before, which was a bit of a mistake on my part. Lesson learned. Started my battle logs couple weeks ago, and here's this part. Technically a respawn, but also technically a first-start. Merh. 29-year old female, currently a full-time college student because reasons. Current: 173 lbs, measurements 39-37-41, body fat approx 29% Goal: 150 lbs, measurements approx 37-26-37, body fat approx 20% I'm putting measurements and body-fat percentage (even as approximates) because I don't want to get hung up on the scale. The calibration on that thing is a bit iffy on the best of days. Having the alternative numbers gives me something to shoot for, and if I need to revamp due to miscalculation of reality, I'm good with that. I've been glorious and wonderful with food-journaling (which is new, in the past I've hated it.) 3 week streak! Working out is also going fairly well. There's two free-for-students classes at the college gym that I'm attending (one on Monday, one on Wednesday), and tomorrow I'm scheduled to meet with a personal trainer to get a workout plan figured. I know there's the ones offered at Nerdfitness, but I'm a lazy bum and want/need someone to push me in person. At least to help me set the base parameters. For glory and loot!
  5. So, it's been a few months since I've posted here on NF. I'm sad to say that I've fallen off the fitness bandwagon and have been slow to restart. I was in a pretty good routine (morning stretch/workout, mid-day walking breaks, healthy eating), but that all kinda fell away when I sustained a foot/leg injury. So, those 25lbs. that I'd shed are back and I'm feeling as crappy as I every have... probably more, knowing that I've taken such a colossal step backwards. Between the weight gain, the lack of exercise, a few negative life experiences, I don't even FEEL like trying anymore. But I know that's just my brain stumbling over speedbumps. So, consider this my re-commitment to a healthier lifestyle. I hope that I can make some lasting changes with the help of NF and it's awesome community.
  6. Hey guys! I've just moved to Anchorage, AK. I'm wondering if there are any fellow Nerd Fitness Rebels in the area. I'd love to find some people to workout with, hike with, or even just someone to hang out with. It'd be great to meet some like-minded individuals!
  7. I'm a math teacher in Marshall, AK. I'm wondering if any fellow nerds from Alaska are searching through the forums. Let me know if you're looking for another contact in the last frontier!
  8. Gentleman. Scholar. Sinner. Skilled lover. Centurion. Gladiator. Night's Watch. Philosopher King. Closet romantic. Man for all seasons. Village Idiot. Chronic underachiever. A man has been called many things in his life, but his present desire is to be but three: Strong, Fast, and Brutal. These are qualities that a man lacks. Although persistence will eventually take one to one's destination, a man believes that a little bit of intensity goes a long way. So the goal is simple for a man's first challenge: QUEST: INTENSITY 1. STRONG: Barbell Training session (A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0) 2. FAST: Bipedal locomotion session (A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0) 3. BRUTAL: Martial Arts Training session (A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0) SIDE QUEST: WISDOM Complete NESTA's MMA Conditioning Certification program and pass the final exam. MOTIVATION Somewhere out there, somebody bigger, stronger, faster, smarter, richer, better-dressed, and prettier than you is training while you are not.
