  1. I am Six. Padawan Assassin The Origin of Six Six’s Ambitions Like most in the Rebellion, I want to be healthier, stronger, and live more fully. On a daily basis, I will not anger or worry. I will be present, grateful, and work diligently. I will be kind. In my endeavors, I will strive to create and act in a manner that is innovative, useful, aesthetic, understandable, unobtrusive, honest, thorough, efficient, and minimal. Six’s Epic Quests Survive Like Les: Primitive Survival In Like Flint: Secret Agent An Adventurer like You (or Until I Take an Arrow to the Knee) Deviant like Lolish: Artistry Rich like McDuck: Financial Independence A Mind like Sherlock: Temple of the Mind
  2. Hello fellow rebels! So a while back I actually was doing well, but school got intense and then I had to stop. EVERYTHING. I dropped down from a full time job to barely part time due to unpaid full time Clinicals during the summer, and so I couldn't even afford to eat decent. I was severely depressed and I think I'm FINALLY getting over that and getting motivated to better myself (also super excited to be done with school in 4 months!) With that in mind, I'm going to start off slow. Here are the goals: DIET Eat a veggie with a meal a day Reduce fast food consumption by 50% FITNESS Do 1 body weight workout per week (probs doing this on Fridays) LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE 1 piece of art a week (this includes working on existing pieces) Finished my first piece of 2016! Good luck fellow rebels with your goals!

  4. WARNING: THIS CHALLENGE IS ABOUT VULNERABILITY, CHRISTIAN FAITH, AND RECOVERY. "Hi, my name is Granny and I'm a grateful believer in Jesus, who struggles with codependency, resentment, and food." For the last 3 years I've been a member of Celebrate Recovery (a Christ-centered recovery program), and this is how we introduce ourselves. While I haven't struggled with drugs or alcohol, I am the child of an alcoholic and the child of an abuser. I do struggle with other behaviors that have hindered my maturity as an adult. Things like stress eating, people pleasing, procrastination and workaholism. Everyone has hurts from the past that they don't know what to do with; habits they've developed to help them cope with the unresolved conflicts in their past; and hangups about how they view themselves and the people around them. CR uses the 12-step model from AA, the principles in the Beattitudes, and cognitive behavior life skill tools to help untwist the damage in our lives. The Rehab Challenge: In this challenge, I'm going to be working on rehabilitation, both in mind and in body. I'm struggling with the aftermath of being injured in a car accident. The last day of the previous challenge (7-19), my hubby and I were in the left lane of a 3-lane road that's also a one-way street. The guy in the middle lane made a sudden decision to take a hard left turn into a business driveway across our lane, and cut in front of us, so close that we couldn't avoid the crash. He said he didn't see us, and I believe him; we must have been in his blind spot and he didn't look over his shoulder before turning left. Now it wasn't a serious accident; we were only going about 35mph, both cars' engines were still mostly functional, even though the body and frame of both were damaged (the other car likely beyond repair). My husband and the other driver were unhurt. Me, on the other hand, I have a Cervical Sprain, which is also considered whiplash but this one was side-to-side instead of back-to front. I also have two compressed discs in my neck, and the injury is making that area of my neck particularly problematic. Soft tissue damage is still being assessed at this point. It could have been alot worse, physically! But it's taking a toll on me psychologically. I'm in pain, seeing doctors and chiropractors and on the phone with insurance agencies and the lawyer, multiple times this week, which takes alot of my time. I'm also working-- owning my own business means I don't get to take a couple weeks off. I can't do my workouts or play disc golf, pick up my grandchildren, etc. I'm having a hard time keeping resentment at bay. I'm also struggling with a desire for revenge, financially. I don't believe that's the right thing to do, so I'm trying to put those emotions into proper perspective so that they don't influence my behavior. *So my goals for this challenge:* Main Quest: Create a plan to rehabilitate physically. Part of this plan will be to keep all doctor appointments, ask probing questions about my condition to make sure I completely understand what is being said, and make a plan to work my body back to it's previous state (or better!), whether that involves physical therapy or other forms of physical activity. Measurement: Keeping all appointments, making a plan for physical therapy, and following through on regaining my physical abilities: +5 Con Second Quest: Keeping it real. Part of this plan will be to recognize when I'm tempted toward using my injury for greed, and reaching out to my accountability people when those thoughts come. Same thing when I can't do something I want to do because of the injury-- recognizing when I'm tempted to hold my anger or frustration inside and nurse it into a cold resentment. I will choose not to either minimize my injury in order to speed the process toward playing disc golf or working out, nor play it up for laziness or to get out of a responsibility or to get sympathy. Measurement: Reaching out to my accountability team, attending all recovery meetings, and refusing to fall into psychological traps or acting out: +5 Wis
  5. Welcome to my 50th Birthday Challenge! I turn the Big 5-0 the first week of this challenge, so to celebrate being in the best shape of my life as I turn a half-century old, I'm celebrating in a big way by having a giant 6-week-long Luau Party!

  6. Main Quest: to perfect the Beginner Body Weight Workout (BBWW). To do this, I will practice the BBWW workout 3x a week. Measurement: working out 3x each week: STA +7.

Update challenge 1x a week and not do any of the guild minis: STA +1.
  7. Hello everyone, my name is Richard and I make cartoons. I'm currently taking my final class to receive my Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Animation from school and I figure as I transition out of school and into a post-college chapter of life, I should also transition into a chapter of better physical fitness. Well, I say that, but then again I've been exercising/dieting on and off for nearly 10 years now. But you know what they say; 300th time's the charm, right? My hope is some accountability will keep me from procrastination in this area (I mean heck, I've had an unfinished email draft to Steve in my email folder since I signed up 2 years ago.) WITH THAT OUT OF THE WAY. I'm a 24 year old male dude man with a height of 6'3", a weight of 250lbs and a beard of Lumberjack proportions. I figure with these numbers and my frame, I'd go down the weightlifting warrior route. I imagine I'd enjoy picking up heavy things rather than running long distances. Cardio has been my main focus whenever I try to "get healthy" and has not worked out tremendously well, so maybe it's time for a different approach. WAIT. I've signed up to a fitness site for NERDS. I should probably back up my claim to nerdiness. WHELL, I'm an animator, if that wasn't already established, so I have an unhealthy affinity for cartoons of all sort, I also have been gaming ever since I can remember (my dad got an NES just a year before I was born, so I was gaming from the womb basically.) The games I tend to gravitate to are non-military FPS type games, (like Borderlands, L4D, Killing Floor, TF2 and the like) indie platformers, and puzzle games (somewhat combined in my current addiction: Gunpoint) I hope that covers everything. Are there any other animators/artists on here? Any others who enjoy adventureously spicy foods? Thanks for taking the time to read this novel!
  8. Hi everyone, My name is Robin, I'm a 45 year old artist and puzzle solver (account reconciliations) and currently just over 150lb at 5'7" ... but the scale says my body fat percentage is 36% as a female and 22% as a male. So I either need to work on the percentage or transform into a man??? My highest weight (aside from when I was carrying my son 19 years ago) was 180. I was in a dead-end relationship and stress eating instead of working things out. Now I'm back to being a soccer and volleyball player, a boot camp lover and I have a handful of DVD's such as P90x, Insanity and FitBrigade from Sunrider. My current issues include: 1) motivating myself when I am alone, at the moment I have all the time in the world ... well, in between purging and packing for our move from the prairies to the mountains. 2) remembering to stretch 3) eating veggies - it's not that I don't like them ... I just haven't made enough effort to eat them at 3 meals a day 4) reformed sugar-addict - I've cut out pop and sweets, but, I still need to take it one step further and cut out the hidden sugars! My last issue is getting so motivated reading about everyone's great goals and challenges ... that I forget to shut off the computer and work on my own! Can't wait for the next 6 week challenge!
  9. hey everyone. my name is Aiden and i am 28, from minnesota. i am a female to male transgender male who is in the process of changing things in my life. i quit smoking back in july and that has made a huge difference for me but lately i have been gaining weight a lot due to my weird over eating habits. i am in the process of eating better but once i started reading the things written on the site about the diet and ways grains effect your body i realized that i eat an obscene amount of grains and sugars and that is going to be my hardest issue. i also used to be a vegetarian but i love chicken and ham so it was really hard to stick to that. after reading further into the dieting part of the plan i realized this is exactly what i need. one thing that i am going to try my hardest at is working out at home. i work out better in a gym but right now we can not afford a gym membership since we only have one gym in our town and they are quite pricy. i am open to talking to everyone about everything. i am going to need all kinds of support in here with the dieting and working out so i am always open for any workout/ dieting buddies who are willing to harass me through facebook or texting once we get to know each other better. i know i am lazy and have been putting things off for most of my life but i need things to change and it is time. look forward to seeing the changes!
  10. I guess I'll start here, hello everyone, my name is Knichtus. Do not let the masculine name fool you as it always does I am female (however I feel more comfortable with a male persona so he or she is fine though i really prefer he ) *cough* Anyhow. I am right now a student at University of Texas at Dallas (just turned 18 actually), my goal is to become a Design Engineer, double majoring in Engineering and Arts and Technology (yes i know, this is gonna take me like 8 years, I know.) However I strong with the one thing that every Monster Hunter needs: self-esteem. Monster hunter is my favorite game, I love the though of running around, gathering materials and beating up epic beasts on a daily basis, which is why it landed a spot as my favorite game. I love drawing, and placing ideas on papers. Sci-fi is my favorite genre and i hope to be able to create things for and from that. However for me to accomplish my goal I need confidence, I wanted to start getting healthier but just the thought of doing exercises fills me with anxiety to the point of panic attacking, judged for eating healthy makes me stop breathing from the stress, like the constant feeling of piercing glares watching my every decision. This effects me with everything, art, homework, trying to make a comment in class. I've been getting therapy for it but still its hard, I can only function minimally without feeling like I'm being watching doing anything. The only way to work out is for me to make it like a game, something like...I'm fighting or in a battle. (wielding weapons, I used to do Brazillian Jui Jitsu) I am right now 5'2" (shortie) at 163 lbs, instead of ogre I like to say I'm a were-american badger or bear (i love animals and have the temper and tenacity of both), my goal isn't necessarily to lose weight but I'd like to become stronger, I have uncontrollable strength already so I want to get more of handle on it and increase it. I hope to base my workout off play and monster hunter things, my body has to be completely involved to get interested and entirely focused. I asked as my christmas gift to get me a shot loadable sledgehammer and a tire. My goal is eventually to get a medicine ball or rope. I love biking, especially with my dog, however he's too small and lazy to keep up with me constantly so I'm hoping a larger dog I hope to be adopting will be ready to join me on my adventure. (Typically bikejoring and mountain biking) I hope while I'm here that I can build a good base and reach my goals, it is nice to meet everyone!
  11. The art scene is one of those places where everyone is a friggen hipster in skinny jeans. Not that I have designs on entering hipsterdom, but I would rather not stand out as the fat girl in the gallery. There is definate snobbery about a person's look going on. I think it would help my confidence talking to gallery owners if i lost 60 pounds,30 of which piled on as I got my degree. When I'm not painting I have my own business of painting on found tea cups. I also play phantasy star online 2 (jp server because Sega hates North America. Ship 10 and ship 2.) and Ragnarok 2. Steam name is WonderlandAlli. To be honest I spend way more time painting than gaming. I also teach art after school programs and want to teach high school at full time. Thanks to an intolerance, gluten free almost two years and planning to go full paleo.
