  1. Oh, bother. I was not planning to challenge in this round. I thought perhaps I would just lurk and cheer other folks on, because I don't really have a lot going on except "keep doing what I'm already doing." But having accountability and friends to cheer is always good and there are a few things that I ought to probably bother about Walk like Eeyore Walk for 15 minutes every day. Ideally in the evening, with dog. On days that schedule or weather makes that impractical, around the campus at lunchtime or even around the inside of the large academic building. I'm depressed, have been for a while, and I didn't even realize it until I started throwing pity parties for myself about things that simply didn't warrant them. Walking helps. And it's spring, generally nice weather (wicked humid, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ), and I have a walk-friendly neighborhood and a beautiful walking path around the campus. Bounce like Tigger Nothing fancy here. Keep doing IS 3 or 4 days a week. There's a fair bit of jumping in IS. Eat like Rabbit A salad a day. I have vegetable ... issues. I don't eat nearly enough of them. I feel much better when I do eat enough of them. There are some I even like. But the easiest and surest way for me to get a reasonable amount of vegetation into my bod is salad, which I both like and find easy and convenient to make. That's enough for now.
  2. Placeholder so I won’t procrastinate further. (I swear there’s a point to the challenge title that’s more than an excuse to post banana gifs)
  3. Hello, friends! My name is Nicole... looking to reclaim what has gone missing over the last four years (mainly, my strength, agility, energy and focus). Maybe also my size ten jeans. I'm not really sure what else to say - I've become somewhat reclusive outside of work and family events, and I'd like to venture back into the land of the living. Happily married, two fabulous teenagers, and in my mid-30's. Just wanna get my groove back! See y'all around!
  4. Diet Drink tea when I first wake up instead of soda. Drink more water during the day. -Note: My average drinks consist of only Dr. Pepper and maybe one to two small glasses of water each day. Fitness Complete the NerdFitness Bodyweight Workout at least 1x per week. Level Up Your Life Write 1000 words a day at least 3x each week. Smoke at most seven cigarettes a day instead of nine. Epic Quest One day I wish to become a Personal Trainer and/or a Fitness Instructor at a Gym. It is my heart's desire to help people better themselves. I want to teach them how to train and teach them how to love doing it. First things first, though, is that I need to get in shape myself before I help others get in shape. I also need to learn the very skills I want to teach. I also want to become a power lifter some day. I am saving up for any and all equipment I will need and/or a gym membership. (Sadly gym memberships are very expensive around here.) I don't know anything about it; not the lingo, nothing. But, I am studying and I figure I should work on cardio first anyway.
  5. Hey... As the title implies, I'm off to Uni in September as a Mature Student. This challenge is also complicated slightly by the fact that I have a couple of weeks planned visiting friends which may or may not make eating right and exercising a challenge. Therefore, during my 2 weeks away I will try, but will not be too hard on myself. The rest of the time, when I'm as home I will try to be more strict. My holiday weeks and weeks 3 and 4. I did find a reasonably priced gym that I can use while up there, but things can happen which make that difficult. I can also buy some of my own food while I'm there, but again... I'm not going to ruin my time with my friends by being all weird about it. So... here is my 6 wk challenge for the upcoming: Main Quest. (Carried over from my first challenge) Is to fit into my old suit for my cousin's wedding at the end of August. This will obviously involve loosing inches from my waistline, but I want do do it by getting strong instead and eating better. Target for end of August 38in. SMART quests (All of the following are including increased flexibility weeks 3 & 4 as discussed) i) To follow the 80/20 rule. To have unprocessed protein, fruit and veg 80% of the time and no more than one 'treat' thing per day minimum 5 days per week (more than one treat allowed 2 days) 3 + 2 CON 100% = All of the above all 6 weeks including the two holiday weeks. 90% = All the above, excluding the holiday weeks. **% = I'll figure out the true percentage if I get off track.. ii) Weight Lifting three days each week following 'Starting Strength' 2 + 1 STR 2 DEX 100% = Lift 3 times per week and stretch after for all 6 weeks including Holiday. 90% = Lift 3 times per week and stretch after for all 6 weeks excluding Holiday 75% = At least 2x per week for all 6 weeks. 50% = Less than three days per week for the whole 6 weeks. iii) Tracking my food and exercise daily on this site. 1 + 1 CHA 100% = Every day, including holiday and plus calorie and protein totals. 90% = Every day except holiday, or every day but no calorie and protein. 80% = 5+ days every week. iv) Reading in preperation for starting my Degree 1 + 1 WIS 100% = First Aid in English plus 2 other books of the reading list. 66% = 2 of the above 33% = 1 of the above v) Complete all the Assassin Minis and meet some new fellow Assassin friends. 1 CHA Motivation. To be happier and healthier, to be more able and to fit into the clothes that shrank when I wasn't paying attention and to not completely forget all about Uni until the day I have to go in.
  6. Hi guys, I'm Azzie and I'm gonna try out my first 6 week challenge from today. Stamina is pretty sucky so I'm gonna start really small. Main Quest : To eat healthy and exercise every day for the next 6 weeks Quest 1 : To eat healthy home cooked meals with low carbs Points : + 1 for every healthy meal - 1 for an unhealthy meal Goal : To have 75 Points by the end of 6 weeks Quest 2 : To exercise daily for 30 mins (Walking - basic bodyweight circuit - streching) Points : + 1 for every 30 mins exercise - 1 for skipping a day Goal : To have 30 points by the end of 3 weeks Side Quest : To study hard and do well for my final exams. I'm notorious for starting new things and leaving them half way through because I can't handle them, so hopefully I've made precise, simple and clear goals that I can follow. I really feel good starting this and I plan on updating the status of my challenge every Sunday evening. Wish me luck guys, and all the very best for every one else starting this new 6 weeks challenge!!

  8. Hey y'all! I know i'm super late in the game on this one, but i kinda dropped off the november one half way through, so we're gonna call this redemption. So here's whats up! I live in France. This is a amazing thing because its easier to find farm fresh produce and makes cooking MUCH more fun, but they also have AMAZING sweets. In the US i'm not even tempted cause i know how disgusting and processed everything is, so sweets don't appeal to me.. but here there more of an art form. so friggin good! ANYWAY! i had a hardcore reaction to sugar a few weeks ago where I couldn't even walk for like 5 days without hurting cause my allergic reaction manifested in my back giving out. THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW. I know EXACTLY what my body wants from me to be healthy and strong and i just haven't done it out of laziness and lack of discipline. so the discipline starts NOW. Steves post about making fitness a priority for one month to see if your life would all apart or come together really struck home for me. so that my plan! for the month of February I shall be making fitness a priority! I am running a half marathon in April and doing Parkour 2x per week so my training will be based around that. for quests: Main quest: Be as healthy as possible. Mind and body. gain strength, and never again be this weak. Use nutrition and running to regulate my body and boost my immune system! Mini #1 Run 2-3x per week during the week! Mini #2 Do 30 push ups and 100 squats 2x week Mini #3 Go to an hour and a half of parkour 2x week Nutrition: I shall be creating high protein salads in jars on sunday or monday for the week so i never have to eat out for lunch because of time constraints. I have bad reactions to most breakfast food, including eggs so on morning when i have school i shall premake packets of green smoothie makings with some type protein (hallelujah to almond butter!) to add so that the process is fast enough for me to eat something homemade instead f a croissant! DINNER WITH FRIENDS! food is a social thing here. I plan to monopolize on that and have dinners with friends at my place! I'm excited!!! HERE WE GO!
  9. Hi all, Here's my first challenge in the Rebellion. Been a member for some time, but decided I need to dream and read less and start commiting to some form of change. Rebellion member [Jakkals] gave me some great advice to start off slow and I'm following that advise: Main Quest Lose the smallish beer belly/ pot belly and increase general health and wellness​Although skinny, tall and quite fit due to bi-weekly action netball I'm not very pleased with the slight beer belly and my lack of energy and drive. My SMART Fitness quest Drink at least 2 liters of water dailyI'll give myself the following points: 2ltrs: 4 | 1.5ltrs: 3 | 1ltrs: 2 | 0.5ltrs: 1 No sugar in my coffee​I'm a coffeeholic and drink a tremendous amount of coffee. The water intake should balance this out, but the sugar is the enemy here. I don't drink milk so that's not an issue for me. I drink only one teaspoon of sugar, but want to cut this out. Thanks to Tim Ferris black bitter coffee can be flavored with cinnamon and Vanilla essence, which I both love. I'll give myself the following points based on percentage of cups drank per day without sugar: 100%: 4 | 75%: 3 | 50%: 2 | 25%: 1 Go to the gym everyday (Sundays excluded)​Foam roll everydayStretchPilates Exercise​​The above program is as set out by my Biokineticist. I'll give myself the following points: 1 point for each item done per day (Max 3 points) My SMART Life quest Blog twice a week​I recently committed to a Live Your Legend Blog Starting Challenge. Points: 1 Posts: 1 Point | 2 Posts: 2 Points Finish a proposal for a Grammy winning producer​I recently got an opportunity to draft a proposal and video for a multiple Grammy winning producer. Need to send him proposal ASAP. I'm not allocating myself points for this. This shit is way to important to measure with points. NEEDS TO BE DONE. Continue to make my bed daily​This is an extremely bad habit I'm currently working on. Running a three week streak so far. Points: 1 Point for each day of the week (Max: 7 per week) Post daily progress on Nerd Fitness RebellionPoints: 1 Point for each day of the week (Max: 7 per week) Challenge Conclusion: Based on the amount of days left in the challenge and my requirement set out above. I can get a Maximum of 161 POINTS I will deem the challenge successful if I score 70% or higher. Hence I need to achieve at least: 112.7 POINTS Let's make that 113 See you around folks... Mwah!
  10. Good people of the Rebellion, I humbly introduce myself, request your wisdom and give you all access permission to kick my ass if I do not follow along. Because I truly think I need a good ass kicking into gear. My name is Chris Brooks and I am all the way from sunny and beautiful South Africa. Why do I need an ass kicking? I've been following along with Nerd Fitness for such a long time and haven't even posted one post. I KNOW and WANT to change into this amazing testimony of health and wellness turnaround, but I struggle.... I procrastinate like nobody's business. (I actually think I could've been to Mars by now if I didn't screw around so much) I'm 1,92m tall and weight 85kg. Tall and skinny - for some part - smallish beer belly and signs of man boobs. I play Action Netball every week and amazed at my fitness and endurance. Spend most part of my day sitting in front of a PC. I recently decided to make a list of things in various aspects of my life that I want to change. Not because I have to, but because I want to. But my knowledge hungry mind had me collecting tonnes of information and absolutely no action. Therefore, I turn to you, Rebels... Show me the way... Please... What I figured out so far: I'm most definitely Assasin (with a hint of Monk) - I hate dumbbells, barbels and weight machines like the plague. I prefer Bodyweight, Pilates, Yoga, Kettlebells (oddly I like kettlebells) I do not want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger - I prefer the defined athlete look. I need to stop smoking I should eat more - I only eat dinner. I should drink more water I need to get an exercise plan and stick to it. I like the 4HB Slow Carb Diet idea. (Someone on the forum mentioned that Slow Carb = Paleo + Beans) Rebels, over to you, where to next? (PS: I keep seeing that I should create a thread listing my personal challenge, where do I create this thread?)

  13. Well , to support myself in my endless struggle with my weight i have decided to record my progress. Of course hoping to forever change myself in an awesome assasin/elf! (because those are the most epic characters in every game i have ever played) I'm not really out of shape, however i'm not happy with how I look + I have a few Goals I definetely want to accomplish! And the only way to do that is to change my lifestyle + my diet. I started my diet with the following measurements : I'm 1.69 m and 19 years old. at my heaviest I was : 67 kg I started my diet at : 65,5 kg after 2 weeks in my diet I discovered Nerd Fitness and decided to track all my measurements every month, here are my first: 4 feb 2013 weight: 62,9 kg breasts:83 cm waist:67 cm hips:90 cm bum:103 cm legs u:59 cm d:36 cm arms:24 cm BMI:22,0 My weekly sportschedule at the moment: Monday: 9-10 pm - quick Callanetics (including 25 min of either squats/push ups/abdominal muscles etc.) Tuesday: 8 - 9.30/10.00 pm - Recreational Volleybal Thursday: 7.30-10.30 pm - Volleybal training (I train with 2 teams) Friday: 9-10 am - slower Callanetics (including 25 min of either.... etc.) Saturday:9.30-10.30 am - quick Callanatics (including....... etc.) This is how my schedule is at the moment, however i want to add weighttraining and things like that . (perhaps instead of Callanatics on Friday) Tonight I will ask the gym coordinator if he can make a weightlift training program for me! The Reasons/ Goals: - I started playing Volleybal at the end of October 2013 > I'm totally hooked and therefore I want to become better and better! And for that I need muscles in my arms/legs etc. - I have always been a sporty girl, never looked lean and mean however... (only in my mind XD) Therefore I want to create the perfect body that a sport lover like me deserves! - I want to be able to use my Wind-surf board again! (now I'm not comfortable with my body > damn wetsuit... ) - I want to go hiking in the scotish Highlands and for that I need a toned physique! - I'm quite interested in Parkour (I used to do gymnastiques, so I believe that my body could handle all the quick momevements etc. after I have more muslces) + I really want to try it out! - I have always wanted to try out something like Jiu Jitsu , and as with all physical sports you need some muscle for that! - I want to weigh 54 kg at 1 july 2013 - have a body fat % of 18 % - To be ably to jump 1 m upwards My diet etc.: Well first of I'm a vegetarian. (i do eat fish) I love dairy products > wich is only natural because I live in Holland XD Therefore I can't follow a total Paleo diet. (i could give up the dairy products, but at the moment i already have problems with low iron and low blood pressure and therefore don't want to change to much food's that i have been acquiainted with since birth) Still I will follow it for as much as I can. (Perhaps i will even go full paleo eventually) I count calories at the moment..... I know it sounds bad.. well perhaps it is > but at the moment it works for me so.. uhm.. don't have anything more to add.. Well good luck to every other nerd Fitness rebel > And as Claude M. Bristol says : 'to win you gotta stay in the game!'
  14. Wow, I'm freaking out a bit at going public w/my 1st challenge.... does this cause anxiety in anybody else? I'm also starting a few days late, but hey, I'm starting. Starting point: 5'2", 136#, minimal routine exercise in the past 3 weeks w/ approximately a day/week of moderate activity (getting firewood, building something, sledding) thrown in here and there. (D'oh - height's not going to change; weight may not change, but I don't know my measurements at the moment. May edit and post them later.) Lifestyle goal CON3 CHA2 Listing this one first b/c 2 of my diet & fitness goals kind of hinge on it. Establish a wake up routine by getting up @ 0630 every day. Sleep hygiene is a big deal for me. It's one of my secret weapons in my battle for good mental/emotional health. Until now I've been getting enough sleep, but am in no way consistent at formulating a morning routine. F- I got up @ 0630 0-7 days 0 points D- I got up @ 0630 8-15 days 25% of points C- I got up @ 0630 16-23 days 50% " " B- I got up @ 0630 24-31 days 75% " " A- I got up @ 0630 32-40 days 100% " " Beverage goal: CON1 Establish a water-drinking habit by drinking at least 2L of water/day outside of meals. I love water! I miss it when I don't drink it, and I haven't been drinking as much as usual. Time to change that. F- I drank the full 2L 0-7 days 0 points D- I drank the full 2L 8-15 days 25% of points C- I drank the full 2L 16-23 days 50% " " B- I drank the full 2L 24-31 days 75% " " A- I drank the full 2L 32-40 days 100% " " Diet goal: CON3 Establish a healthy breakfast routine by eating AHB every morning. By healthy, I mean oatmeal and/or an egg (hard-boiled or scrambled) w/fruit. Yogurt and almonds are acceptable as a backup plan if none of those other things are available. F- I ate a healthy breakfast 0-7 days 0 points D- I ate a healthy breakfast 8-15 days 25% of points C- I ate a healthy breakfast 16-23 days 50% " " B- I ate a healthy breakfast 24-31 days 75% " " A- I ate a healthy breakfast 32-40 days 100% " " Fitness goal: STR3 DEX3 Establish an exercise routine by working out at least 3x/week. Bonus points (I'll figure out how to measure that somehow, just as soon as I find out if it's legal) if the 3x a week activity is a NerdFitness.com bodyweight routine, AND if I take a 30-minute walk outside on the off days. F- I did 0-2 workouts 0 points D- I did 3-6 workouts 25% of points C- I did 7-10 workouts 50% " " B- I did 11-14 workouts 75% " " A- I did 15-18 workouts 100% " " Now, the 'how': I already have my cell phone alarm clock set on 0630, repeating daily. My challenge is to actually get out of bed at that point. I often wake up then, but I hang out for an hour or 2. Not anymore. I'll refill my water bottle as soon as it's empty and keep it close by. I prefer working out in the morning, and eating breakfast after. Putting 3 of those things together, I hope to establish a habit for a kick-butt morning routine by the end of this challenge. (I'll edit this later once I've figured out how many Attribute points to, well, attribute to each goal.) Edited! Added grade scales and revised goal statements 13Jan. All the best, fellow 6-week challengers!
