  1. So I've just started my second week at a new job as a machinist, and I love it. After spending years in grad school spinning my wheels thinking about really complex and intricate ideas nobody gives two shits about, let alone a salary, with nothing to show for it, and then two years in a low paying, low skilled, mind numbing ass grinding warehouse job, I finally found a good job that's balanced on mental and physical work, pays well, and very likely will open a good career path ahead. Plus, I landed a gig at a good company right out of school. I get to play with robots t
  2. New Challenge! Or rather a series of challenges because I am trying to do multi-challenge character arc and it will span the course of 12 months. So, in case I have not mentioned it, tomorrow is my birthday! And also Thanksgiving if you're one of us Yanks. Which means I plan to get some extra stuffing and NOT feel bad about it. I turn 49 tomorrow, which is a weird combination of WHOOOT WHOOOT and holy fuck. I want to make my next few challenges all about getting out of my comfort zone, trying new things, and basically revving the engine so I come screeching up to the starting line
  3. Hey! So just looking to see if we have any Canadian Rebels from the good ol' AB? I'm up north in Grande Prairie (4.5 hours NW of Edmonton). I'm heading to the Color Me Rad Run in Edmonton this July, and wondering if anyone else will be going/wants to meet up?
  4. This is a recipe i posted last week on my challenge and i got a few requests to translate it. So i decided to post it here to share with you all!! Chicken in a Delicious Jacket Above: my first time making it with my Dutch cook book. (This amount of chicken is for 6 persons, but i was very hungry haha) - Ingredients - Preparation - Changes/Tips For 2 persons. Ingredients: A pinch of Sea Salt & Peper 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder 1/2 teaspoon Onion powder 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon It
  5. I don’t have a lot of plot exposition this time around, as I’m just mildly adjusting my last challenge, The Secret Life, which I feel really speaks to my overarching goals at the moment. I really want to travel more (by ‘more’ I think I mean ‘all the time’) and showcase my travel writing and photography more, so this challenge is designed for those things. Also, my December is going to be nuts so a simple challenge is best I also have a big trip coming in late spring that I’ll talk about more next challenge, but this challenge will begin to lay the groundwork. (And
  6. This time around, like so many of my other challenges, I started out with one idea and it morphed into something totally other. I was planning to do a "Spartan Race" challenge because I'm attempting one in December (full disclosure: I'm probably going to die) and while I was looking for some good movie quotes I stumbled across "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" which I hadn't seen before, watched it, and I sort of latched on to it instead. It really seemed to speak to where I'm at right now. So instead of Gerard Butler's abs you get to look at Ben Stiller for a month. I am so sorry
  7. NEW CHALLLENGE! Oh My God So Excited ... This is just a placeholder, though. I'll be back later today. Just wanted to let you all know what you're in for.
  8. Time for the new challenge! Really, it’s ridiculous how excited I get about these things. I am going to start a 3-part challenge cycle, in part because I had such a good run with my “Predator” series at the beginning of the year, when I was prepping to go on my trip to the keys. It was a good mix of short- and long-term goals, and since I have three months to prep for my next big athletic event, it fits perfectly. The whole series will be organized around the concept of “taking control” of some of the areas of my life that just constantly go spinning off the rails. I
  9. I spent several days last week minutely configuring my challenge for this go-round, and yesterday during my workout I completely scrapped the whole thing. It was all about intensity and improvement and other Very Important Things, and it was just so serious. I've been a little off-kilter since I came back from my trip (I think all the planning and prep left a psychological vacuum) and I decided I just wanted to have some fun this time around. Inspired by Sloth's Buck Rogers challenge (God, I loved that show when I was a kid) and my teenage obsession with 80's detective shows, I bring you the
  10. This is my second attempt at posting this new challenge today, as I stupidly put it in the wrong forum first. Goofball. Ack! New Challenge already! Okay, I'm in. But I'm doing this on my tablet so I have no pictures. I challenge all of you to supply me with appropriate gifs. My Challenge will be a weird one because for most of it I will be on my epic Journey to the Florida Keys, where I will kayak (with a group) 63 miles in 5 days from Marathon Key (mile 47 on the Overseas Highway) to Key West, mile marker 0 and the Southernmost point, hopefully not being eaten by a giant marine predator or

The morning after I finish the kayak portion, I will mount my aluminum steed and ride n
  12. ... so this last year didn't exactly end on a high note. Dammit, Thrillho, we talked about this... It wasn't all bad! I got to spend a lot of time with my kids, we got to go sledding quite often and we played a lot of board games, and we had a pretty awesome and quiet Christmas at home, without any ridiculous northern Canadian mid-winter travelling (except when we got snowed in at my sister's during a freak storm for two days... which was actually still kind of awesome.) That said, I was sick almost literally from the first day of vacation until... yesterday. I exercised almost less tha
  13. Greetings fellow Warriors, allow me to join your mighty challenge: 1. Diet – working on my phase 2 weight loss goal to reach 210 pounds, want to loss fat and preserve muscle. For this challenge, I want to lose 5 pounds and reach 230, current weight is 235. I will do so by following the Primal diet with 1 reasonable and planned cheat meal a week along with my other 2 fitness portions. 2. Fitness – a big part of my weight loss/fitness journey has been walking (not very Warrior like, but gotta get from battle to battle somehow and not a high enough level yet to afford a War Horse). Fo
  14. Alright. I'm bowing out of the challenges for a bit. Well, at least for this one. I've got the World Championship Spartan Beast this coming Saturday. After that, I've got about a week of easy training. And, then I'll be ramping it up once again with a new training plan. But, I don't feel that the confines of the challenge make sense for what I am doing right now. So, screw it. Here's a battle log.
  15. I'm curious to know what everyone here thinks about the WHO releasing their report showing that red meat causes cancer. I know there has always been an underlying assumption about red meat and it's link to cancer, but this report indicates that the link is more definite than previously thought. What are your thoughts? Will you change your habits at all or do you remain firm on the principles of Paleo? Link to one of the news articles for anyone who is unfamiliar: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34615621
  16. My main reason for joining NF is that I am in the process of relocating across country...in days...crap why I am here and not packing?!? But I know I'll need some fitness minded friends to help keep me focused, and entertained (where do you even find gifs?) as I move, continue to rebuild myself after a nasty little setback and construct the Fortress of Fitness aka the garage gym we call Sweaty Metal Barbell Club. So I'll be lurking around lifting threads, trying to get up the courage to talk to some Warriors, and probably get distracted by anything having to do with bacon... If there is

    Turbo Update

    Hello all! Hope your week is going well. Feeling pretty good lately. Just had my 9th Krav Maga class. It is definitely kicking my ass! But I feel stronger, have a little more endurance in me and have been making new friends in the class. Hope to test for level 1 by February 12th! As for food, not doing too bad. Breakfast the two snacks and dinner are going well, just have to watch lunch. I pack it a lot, but the team likes to go out to lunch often. I've been watching how much is on my plate. Hard to turn down a nice big cheese burger with bacon Overall, I'm working my way to the Paleo
  19. Training to be a Kickass Shield Maiden Part 1 My goals are simple: Weight train 3 x a week at the very least Cardio 3x a week at the very least Keep eating keto and tracking my macros and cals Do something daily that makes me feel really good. Killing noobs in a computer game, going for a run, lifting heavy stuff, eating bacon, re-watching all of Vikings or talking to my awesome friends on here I just need to put one foot in front of the other and hope that I feel more motivated later. Motivation comes and goes, I just need to hang on through the hard times. This challenge ends
  20. I missed this event last year, but it struck me that it would make for a great NF meet-up! I'm not great at organizing these things, but who's interested? Saturday, September 27, 2014 12-5 PM https://www.facebook.com/VABACONFEST
  21. It's time to Spartan The Fuck Up (STFU)! The last couple of months, I've kept up with my running. But, I should be doing more. I need to focus on getting faster, stronger, and mentally tougher. Over the course of this challenge, I have a Spartan Sprint on June 28th, and a 10 mile trail race on July 12th. I've got some serious work to do before them. Goal 1 - Speedwork At least two speed-centric workouts per week. Can be a track workout, hill sprints, tempo run, or fartlek's. That's right. Fartlek. Everyone loves to fartlek. Goal 2 - Buprees, Push Ups, and Pull-ups - oh my! I
  22. OK, the marathon's over and now I am become Shiva, Destroyer of Worlds, so let's kick off this challenge with my four point plan for destroying the entire contents of the milky way. 1. Devour New York We evil destroyers of civilization always like to start by rampaging through a city with recognisable landmarks, demonstrating how man's puny technology is powerless before the primal power of an avenging monster. In other words, I am going to plan in 2 days of primal eating a week to get a sense of what it's like ahead of a potential w30 attempt (unless I regain my senses) in the following chall
  23. I just made this! Yum time! I'm not a measurer of things when it comes to cooking unless it's absolutely needed. So, the above is bacon (5 or slices...it came out of the pack weird) with chopped up sun-dried tomatoes (4) thrown in for the last 2 or so minutes. Then I put it in a food processor until it came out bacon-bity. I'm going to serve it on a salad with blackened chicken and a dressing I make of guacamole, olive oil, and whatever general seasoning is in the cabinet. N' mushies and tomatoes! If I hadn't eaten all the eggs this morning, I would throw a boiled one in, too.
