  1. All around us, it was as if the universe were holding its breath . . . waiting. All of life can be broken down into moments of transition or moments of revelation. This had the feeling of both. G'Quon wrote, "There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities – it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender." The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain. Big Why I have respawned more times than I can count. And I think the main reason is that my big why wasn't strong enough, or big enough, or revisited often enough. I always start out strong but then something happens to disrupt the routine, or I get distracted, or lose focus, and it all comes crumbling down again. I was having a deep conversation with my partner and he said, "I wish you could just be happy with yourself the way you are, and I think you would be happier overall if you just accepted yourself as you are, instead of constantly trying and failing." I understand what he was trying to say, but I think there is a fundamental part of me that says, "You could be better." It says, "You weren't always like this, and staying this way is a failure." There's a logical part of it that says, "A healthier lifestyle would be good for your mental health because endorphins are a great remedy for depression," and "Most of your depression and insecurity comes from being unhappy with the state of your health and appearance, your inability to buy clothes, the loss of looks you once had under pounds of extra flesh, and being too unfit to do things you used to be able to do so easily." So, while I appreciate that he was saying what he said from a place of love and with the hope that I would love myself as much as he loves me, and be happy with myself in who I am now, I think that I will respectfully disagree. I deserve to be in the best condition I can be. I owe it to myself to look after my body. When I know what the right choices are, it makes no sense that I keep making the wrong choices. SMART Goals/Quest list This is a master list; I won't work on them all at once but I will work towards these big goals with the challenges. Nutrition: 1. Eating planned meals according to macros: 33P/29C/38F 2. Weighing and tracking food on MFP for at least 30 consecutive days 3. Phasing out carbonated drinks (including diet soda) in favour of water, tea and black coffee. 4. Cutting down on sugar and processed foods over time. 5. Reducing take-out meals to 3 times a week. Mental: 1. Getting control of my depression through meds and therapy. 2. Improving self-care such as brushing my teeth at least twice a day for a month. 3. Meditating every day for a month. 4. Overcoming social media addiction. 5. Updating progress here at least once a day. 6. Using my bullet journal to manage my time effectively. 7. Doing deep thinking about relationship stuff to improve our communication. 8. Tidying the apartment for 30 minutes every day. 9. Completing a konmari of the apartment before we move to Ecuador. 10. Quit smoking. 11. Developing real life, sincere friendships. Fitness 1. Exercising every day (30 day fitness challenge app). 2. Building a regular workout routine (on paper and in practice). 3.

Do a 2 minute plank. 7. Do a pull up. 8. Run a 5k. 9. Climb a volcano. And if anything pops up to throw me off track, I will be prepared. After all,
  2. It was the dawn of the Third Age of Fitness, two years after the back injury. The Achgiguwen Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to create a healthy lifestyle where I can truly enjoy the remaining years of my life by being active, free to engage the fun parts of life at home and homes away from home. It’s a calling, to be active, more fit, more restful, a better father, husband, and friend. I went from 255 to 320 during the back injury years. It’s not going to be easy but it’s my last best hope for health. This is the story of Achgiguwen, the lively one. The year is 2014. That name of the place is Nerd Fitness… Hello. My name is Achgiguwen. I’m a huge sci-fi fan and love Babylon 5. I used to be a wrestler in high school, martial arts in college, and taught gymnastics in my early adult years. I’ve always been a person who loved my endurance, constitution, and long distances. Life caught up with me: work, marriage, kids, injuries. I started almost 10 weeks ago at 320 pounds and not able to do many things that I love. I am now down to 288 pounds, and can now jog, and start to have fun with my kids and family. I still have problems bending over. Even though I'm better that when I started, I feel like I am still out of shape making it difficult to deal with the things life throws at me. My wife introduced me to Nerd Fitness, and she has been the rock that has kept me going strong. I am also on this mission so I can spend the best and remaining years with my wife happy and active.

Goal 1 – The Parliament of Dreams: Like the Centauri, I love to eat.. especially at night within a hour before bed.... just a bedtime snack, like a small chicken taco. Since I usually go to bed around 10 pm, I plan to not eat/snack on anything after 8 pm. every night. The only exceptions is good fruit (bandannas or oranges), or one of my healthy (under 100 cal) fruit bars. This will be tracked on my battle log.

Measurement Reward 10 hrs +3 Cha 8.5 hrs +2 Cha 7 hrs +1 Cha Goal 4 – Death Walker: "Death Walker" has been spotted on the station. I plan to make sure I"m not her next/last victim.

  4. Welcome True Seekers*! We’re all here on a quest and ready to help each other along. Whether your goal is to lose 10 pounds, stop munching on the cookies your friend baked, or just move past ‘gee that workout DVD looks cool’ to ‘yeah, that’s way too easy now!’ we’re here to help. If you want to join, sign up here, and/or message us below if we need to make more room. Members: Froggiesrock Wocket LassKerr We'll post goals below or on Facebook! (Find us at NF Challenge True Seekers) Since many of us are new, I am hoping this might help us be a little more accountable as I’m guessing new means we are not necessarily wired into the NF Forums yet. *If you missed the reference, it’s a Minbari sect from Babylon 5. Summary from the lords of info spamming at Wikipedia: “Minbari respect the role of "true seekers," which Delenn explains are those who follow the calling of their hearts in a quest. Even when such a seeker's task appears to be folly, other Minbari – especially religious caste – will provide what assistance they can.â€
