  1. Hi! Long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm Tanner, and I'm on a long-term quest to lose a lot of weight I put on during a challenging time in my life. Picture Thor, halfway through Endgame, beaten, broken, lost his hammer, lost most of his emotional support system, hit some major failures, surviving on a diet of Cheetos and self-loathing. While my mental health and personal life are in a much better place now, I'm still working on the midsize-child-worth of sad-Thor weight I'm carrying around. So far I'm focusing on diet, with a mix of Peloton spin (I know, cardio is heresy, but
  2. Welcome back for another episode of The Exciting Adventures of JediNickD! It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away that I joined this site and started my first challenge.. World 1 was my first extended stay through 22 challenges. I took a hiatus from NF and came back with a new direction for my goals where I warped to World 2, which I defeated in a Boss Fight slaying some mighty big goals. In World 3, I continue to develop my fitness, getting my body in the best shape of my life, even with the Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis, Disc Fissures, and more. Through physical thera

  8. The last challenge was a brilliant flame-out. I went in with the idea that I was going to leap directly into training for 2018, but due to work stress, illness and just lack of personal dedication, the entire challenge cycle was basically a bust. I feel like I'm turning into Luke Skywalker, retreating from the universe to basically hide on a personal sorrow planet of sulky solitude. Anyone who knows me knows that while the Master of the New Jedi Order may be the hero of that galaxy far, far away, he's not the man I want to be. I find him fragile, whiny, and sulky. A man who runs away to hide o
  9. Main Goal On October 14, 2017, I participated as an Age Group competitor at the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships. It was an amazing experience, an emotional high, and the hardest thing I have ever done to date. The mountain climbs were excruciating, the descent in the rain treacherous, and the obstacles appropriately difficult for a world-championship event. While I'm generally pleased with how my run went, I'm not satisfied. I finished the course and attempted every obstacle. I failed several on the back third of the course due to both poor weather
  10. Main Goal This is it. At the end of this challenge, I'll be traveling to Blue Mountain, Ontario, 12 October to 15 October for the 2017 OCR World Championships. I qualified as an Age Group competitor during the Spartan Sprint in Illinois in June, and will be competing in Saturday's 15k Standard Course race in the 50-and-over Age Group. I spent almost a full year building toward this race, but like in years past, I am coming into the fall season at less than my peak. Unlike previous years, however, my issues are not due to injury, but to my now-constant running companio
  11. Main Goal I'm still training toward my 2017 goal. I'm going to Blue Mountain, Ontario, 12 October to 15 October for the 2017 OCR World Championships. I qualified as an Age Group competitor during the Spartan Sprint in Illinois in June, and will be competing in the 50-and-over Age Group. I've been waiting since the beginning of November 2016 to say I'm one of them. I will have eight weeks between the start of this challenge cycle and my date with Blue Mountain. That's about the right amount of time for me to be able to concentrate on a goal, and follow through.
  12. I'm 5'5, 120lb (maybe, I could be more or less. I don't own a scale) female, 21 years old. I've always fluctuated between 105-130lbs, and I generally eat pretty healthily. I have 7 autoimmune disorders, and have been diagnosed with 5 chronic pain illnesses. One of my chronic pain illnesses is JIA - idiopathic arthritis. I have been diagnosed with JIA since I was 8 months old. Because of the arthritis, I have permanent joint damage in both elbows, both knees, and my left ankle. I cannot fully extend or bend my elbows and my knees. I've been on prednisone for most of my life, and rel
  13. Good morning! Welcome to the Battle Log of Simply4Awesome. Please place your belongings in the containment unit in front of you. Just a reminder that arms, legs, small children, and other appendages should be kept inside the vehicle at all times. Why this log? To keep track of what I'm doing and the progress I am making. I currently don't have any means to measure/weigh-in/count calories so I can only judge success by the number of reps I can achieve. Knee Circles - 100 rotations clockwise 100 rotations counterclockwise Squats - 25 Wide Squats - 10 Pla
  14. Hello.. um.. All? My very first post. Big Step for me. So.. First out the gate, I have lurked and received all the new emails etc from NF, attempted some of the beginner workouts and then I found my dragons. Coming in a stride behind, rounding the turn, and... smack right into the dragon, not even half way down the backstretch. In case you can't guess, yep I love horses, of which I have two (one being the rideable full sized version, the other the mini party fun sized). Now to describe my dragons.. they are the big intelligent fiery reds, or the more seductive and elusive blacks. I
  15. Taking Down Demons Everyone's got their demons. Mine happens to be a 1950s housewife in pink and pearls who always says "yes, dear" and raises 15 perfect children (all natural, home births). I call her "The Princess" and I've already gone one round with her, rather successfully. Time for round two. As an incurable tomboy raised in a culture of high expectations for classically feminine, stay-at-home-mom, domestic women, I've always felt wrong. Out of place. Even broken at times. I've stood in front of the mirror and hated myself for my boyish posture, my penchant for short haircuts, my
  16. I'm back, sort of. I miss the challenge. I've been watching via WildRoss...but, I have not been able to do much of anything, because of more surgeries, moving, and blah blah blah(cue Charlie Brown's teacher voice here) It's time. The time is NOW. I have lost 25 pounds since Jan 1, and I only have about 100 to go. I have lost much muscle strength, but that can be regained! The time that I have wasted eating wrong and not exercising, to the degree that I could have at whatever time and place I was at, cannot be regained. But I can say right now, right here, NO MORE! I will not be 100% paleo to
  17. Challenge: Core of Steel Last challenge, I blew it. Just a few days before the end, I peaced out of the forums, stopped replying to threads, completely disappeared. There were a lot of reasons for that but the simple answer is that when your brother gets married right in the middle of the holidays, family tensions run high. Add a Lyme flare and you have no time for forum-ing. I did, however, stay in the gym. In fact, I've worked harder than ever. I'm there for an hour 5-6 days a week at the moment and still building muscle and joint stability like a boss. If the honorable assassins can
  18. Hello guys ! So i got myself a gym membership valid for the next 6 months, i was very excited about going back and may have overworked myself. . . i'm 21 years old, barely 5 pounds overweight, i used to workout on a regular basis 3~4 years ago. Doctor said arthritis on both arm joints. . . what did i do wrong ? here is my program -> 15 min cardio 3x15 series for 2 muscle groups with no interval and 30s between series ( shoulder/abs , biceps/chest, etc ) 15 min cardio am i using too much weight, wrong form or both ???
  19. Main Quest: Lose 5 lbs. Side Quest 1: Do 30 minutes of yoga 5 days each week. Side Quest 2: Drink 80 oz (calculated based on weight) of water per day. Side Quest 3: Go on at least 2, 20 minute walks each week. Life Side Quest: Write for 30 minutes 5 days each week. I have finally gotten fed up with this mortal shell and have decided to shuck it off for a new one- and by that I mean upgrade this one, because apparently Wal Mart doesn't sell those. Weight control is especially key for me due to my wonderful companion, arthritis. Getting those first five pounds (well, last five pounds, t
  20. Hey everyone! I am determined to get fit again after I let my own back issues get the best of me! The problem is that I have no clue what some good strength training exercises I can do without killing my back (until I can get my strength up). For your info in answering this, I have hip bursitis, sciatica and lower lumbar arthritis, but it's not going to rule my life anymore! If anyone has/had the same issues and can give advice on where to begin so I don't hurt myself I would GREATLY appreciate it!!
  21. With one challenge under my belt, I think it's time to start a battle log and follow a few others. Background on Max: Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 4, went into remission at 12, symptoms recurred at 15 and suffered in sheer confusion until finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease just this past March. I've spent most of my life sick and/or in pain, without much drive to work out or strengthen my body. With a fatalistic, "oh I'll just flare again and lose all my progress" perspective, I've spent a lot of time on the couch, and no time at all in the gym. With my di
  22. Does anyone have experience wearing Vibram FiveFingers with inflammation in their feet? I read about FiveFingers in one of Steve's posts and was intrigued. Turns out my absolutely favourite slippers (which are sandals in real life) are Vibrams and they feel excellent. Working out completely barefoot can be hard on my feet sometimes, so I'm hoping FiveFingers might have just enough support and cushioning while still giving me the feeling of being barefoot. Any thoughts?
  23. Hi there, rebels! Just thought I'd say hello and introduce myself. You can see me below, doing my best 2-D impression. I'm a young nerdling, just a few years down the road of Sy-Fy originals, D&D nights, and video game release date countdowns. Still haven't been to my first comic-con, so I suppose I'm not a true nerd, but I'm working on it. I'm also new to the land of fitness, as evidenced by the flabby arms in the aforementioned picture. Hoping to join the Assassins Guild after my first challenge to build some strength, agility, and joint stability in recovery from years of arthritis
  24. Since age 17, I've had a mild arthritic condition (which acts like RA, but apparently isn't exciting enough to officially call rheumatoid arthritis). Does anyone have any experience with exercising despite an inflammatory condition? My dream is to study dance or parkour or martial arts, but I'm afraid to commit in case I don't feel well enough to carry through. Any advice?
  25. Despite not knowing a thing about gaming (is that blasphemous?), I have quirky tendencies all the same, such as reading excessively, cooking everything from scratch, and spewing obscure historical information to uninterested audiences. In the last couple of years, I went from the high end of a normal BMI, to underweight, to the low end of normal. Now I want to build muscle, increase my flexibility and improve my endurance. Essentially, I want to be the ultimate Assassin (with the occasional meanderings into Druid and Monk territory to round out my deadliness.) My major barrier is the fact th
