  1. Hey fellow rebels, so I typed in "r" into the tag list while thinking about which tags do apply and it gave me the option to add druid, and I went straight to "naaaahhhh I'm not a druid!" but then I kept thinking about it, and maybe that knee-jerk reaction is old info? I have been a Ranger from the very first challenge way back years and years ago. I added the barbarian when I followed my crush and did meet the barbell for the first time and it was love at first sight. But in the last... year - year and a half - my life changed so very much. And I have gotten a garden allotment and
  2. Hi, my name is Katrin, I go by Morag on the internet. I'm 37yo, single mum of a 17 yo and a 10 yo boy from the north of Germany. I'm a gazillion kg overweight, I started my journey April 6th, 2015, I came straight here, and even during that first newbie challenge I joined the Rangers and have been a ranger ever since, though admittedly in 2019 and 2020 I've been more offsite than on. Even though I have been flailing about lately... I've had a hell of a ride so far: ran a very slow but steady 6km mudrun with friends from Aus and NL, got licensed to be trainer for fitness classes in
  3. Heya folks, what a year, innit? So I am cleaning up my act: Adulting... More adulting... Followed by some habit practices, a.k.a. doing the things that I know work: eat better, start where you are, don't beat yourself up about where you think you should be, knock those things off my desk one after the other, keep breathing, don't overexert, keep those batteries charged and recharging. I have too much on my plate figuratively as well as literally. I need a proper List of All Teh Tinkz followed by some fancy footwork and some accurate urgency/importance priority d
  4. Ok, so here's the deal: The world has gone mad and life doesn't give a flying fuck, it goes on, unless it doesn't, and that's shitty enough, for so many people and their loved ones right now. So we're gonna use what we have when we have it, and ranger the hell out of this situation, corona pandemic be damned. Hi, I'm Katrin, Morag on the internet most days now. I'm 36yo, ~169cm, 100kg. I'm a single mom of two beautiful angel boys ages 16 and 9, yeah they drive me up the walls most days, and no, since I started working this last September they have plugged their ears and preten
  5. So, @Jarric I blame you. Let's see how much awesome I can summon in 12 days, because that is how much challenge there is left over and that is what I am dealing with. I did the sleep deprivation mastery class two frikkin nights in a row, so I am essentially running on fumes atm. What does that mean for my challenge? Yeah: BEDTIME ROUTINE is priority 1 and because of the short challenge duration, I think HOW CAN I BEST SERVE MY FUTURE SELF - SET HER UP FOR WIN? That's my 2nd priority. Service. wwmfstmfm? = what whould my future self thank me for most? Live
  6. So 2020, eh? This is exciting! I can already kind of see the light returning to the world. The dark of the year is behind us. And as someone who has been doing kind of okay, managing s.a.d it still fills me with joy. I am 36 yo female from the north of Germany, Katrin irl, going by the handle Morag or Katrin Morag most everywhere online. I weigh 100kg, which is way too much. And I don't much like how bloated and stuff I feel. On a less depressing note: I did really well throughout the holiday season and into the new year. I am leaving break week wi
  7. Heya, nerds My name is Katrin, I go by Morag on various internet platforms. I am 36 years old now, single mum now (since june this year) of two beautiful boys (9 and soon to be 16). I am located in the real north of Germany. I work with demented elderly (since Sept this year), I started lifting barbells (dito), but the later makes my hip/something twinge painfully, so I need form adjustments at the very least. It hurts so much that I haven't been to the gym in weeks. I am 1,7m tall with just under 100kg for weight, which is ridiculously too heavy. Both my kids
  8. I started back in the gym a few weeks ago now that I've gotten mostly moved back and settled into my new job on night shift. Last year I ran Strong Lifts and while I enjoyed it I decided to try Wendler 5/3/1 this time around. My work schedule is a 4 day on 2 day off work week which suits Wendler's 4 day lifting template. Prior to starting I did max testing using the Epley calculator. My 1 Rep Max was estimated as: Military press: 175 Deadlift: 330 Bench: 210 Back Squat: 325 Weeks 1 and 2 I used the "Big and Dumb" assistance template to get more reps unde
  9. I will edit throughout this day and tomorrow. Promise. EDIT I am motivated but heatwave and their sweaty-sticky-yucky days are hard. Life has been achanging. My name is Katrin [CUT-reen], I go by Morag here. I am 35 years of age. I have two sons 15 and 8 both born in December. I have a husband who quite recently (mid june) moved out, and we are both happier now than before. I plan to start working in an elderly care facility as a ... I have no idea how to translate that "Alltagsbegleiterin" September 1st. There is room on "my" floor for 10 inhabitants with varying stages of dementia, ea
  10. Hello friends... my name is Katrin [cut-reen]. I go by Morag around here, and Katrin Morag almost everywhere else. I have been around these forums since April 2016 (2015?). Last challenge was the first challenge in all that time that I missed entirely. I am a 35 year old mother of two lovely boys, ages 8 and 15. We live in Kiel, Northern Germany. I weigh in at 97kg, which is a problem, but it's currently so far down the list of priorities, that I don't even have time to worry about it. My husband of 16 years is in the process of moving out. Actually he is almost entirely move
  11. Hello fellow Rangers, hello Rebellion, I am here. And I am not going anywhere else, except forward. These last two weeks, as I looked back over my last year, I had a different feeling brewing in my gut, different from the last few year's end of year melancholy. This time it was a distinct "roll your sleeves up"-kind of feeling. I've had enough on a lot of levels and something just has to give. So here goes: I am DONE waiting for miracles I have three things I want to get into my life this coming year. Thing 1 I want to lift heavy sh!t up and put it back down. Fitness places that
  12. I continue to struggle -thoroughly- with the same things over and over and over. So again: Selfcare and taking breaks. Kinda boring, isn't it? more soon
  13. Heck yeah, MORE, gimme MORE MUAHAHAHAHA Will update with more concrete info here soonest. So life has me by the belt, and is flinging me about. I have no theme, per sé, but I was thinking about taking a photo of my stash yarn. Still not sure if maybe I'll do that. I have a few WIPs that need finishing, a tiny pi-shawlette that needs a border, a gift (old shale triangle shawl) for a friend that needs some love (stitches and beads), a second sock for my left foot, because unequal foot wear is not fun, first ever woolen sock pair I am knitting for myself (the one pair of cotton sneaker sock
  14. Just a place - content to follow Time to add some content here. Made a pretty table in my journal for tracking all the things. I think I actually overdid it by going for 3 weeks in one table... it will probably not be clean and pretty at the end of week 2... but it is what it is. Not sure how much more mileage I'll get out of this journal, it's pretty close to full. This next challenge will be about taking better care. Of myself, mostly. As so very often before. I have a multitude of bad food choices headed my way, or at least there's b
  15. So here we are. Break week of August challenge. I have no idea what I am doing atm. Tapatalk is on the fritz so I am typing on my teeny tiny phone browser. Life is weird. I am weighing in Monday at 94.2kg. I have been in a plateau around 95kg for the last 7 months. I have been fighting myself, driving myself slowly crazier and crazier to a point where some part of me was seriously considering cutting calories severely for a month or so, just to get out of this rut. I. WILL. NOT. Though. It has taken years to get to that horrible start weight (103kg April 2015)
  16. Have some music: It's almost mid-July now. A LOT of changes heading towards me and mine. Little boy "graduates" from Kindergarten. Summer break for most of our fitness activities, most of all our regular schedule. Life is weird. And it never really changes to not being weird, when I think I almost got used to things, they change again. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. It's just something that keeps me on my toes. This time without theme to go back to what is essential, what is REALLY important. I am aiming for a log-in every other day to e
  17. Balancing the primal side, which thinks simple, base, emotional (sometimes violent) thoughts, and the evolved side, which thinks sustainible, healthy, inherent good thoughts. While both sides can be kind and caring, the flavour and tone of self-talk varies dramatically. I am both sides. I have both sides. And I don't think it will ever fully change, and that's good, because I don't want to lose either of those ways of thinking and feeling. So for the next little bit, which I imagine will be a bit rough in places, I'd like San from Princess Monoké to teach me some of her strength and
  18. I am going with Kiki this month. Kiki is Ghibli's heroine of 1989. She is honest and cheerful, hardworking and loyal, and honestly a little lost. She isn't an awesome witch, and when she leaves home for her mandatory year of training away she only really can do one witch thing. Flying. And she's not really good at that either. But she goes and does it anyway. And in way we all know, at least I do, she looses that thing that makes her her, and has to relearn magic from scratch, and she has only herself, and the friends she makes along the way and she figures out how to be what she knows sh
  19. Grinding; Small Stones (Stones: a few KCAL a day / that extra microplate or rep / ingraining solid habits) Longterm goals / Main-quest / The Mountain What: Drop in BF% Why: Walk around comfortably without clothes What: Get “bodyweight-fit” Why: Be OCR-ready / Satisfy RangerBrain™ What: Drop below 74 kg (163 lbs) Why: Be ready for PL-beginners-meet Remember the past: track to be able to see progress. Plan for the future: Think up and work out solid long term and short term goals
  20. Okay, really quick goals list, then off to do all the things, because weekends are for extra work, because who needs time off? 1 Rest more - take breaks - do yoga - couch time with hubby to watch something or read... do SOMETHING every day! B eat well: veggies/fruit 50+% of a snack or meal: 10x/week Γ work out: 3x per week (2x classes I participate, 1x class I teach, bonus: dance class) plus 3 runs or walks of sufficient length (45+min) д log EVERYTHING and I do mean everything. It doesn't have to be super detailed, but it has to be logged. Do N
  21. Time for a new thread to go up... I am late. Later than usual. With the thread, you know, and I even had this amazing theme idea... now I'm just gonna try to make it make sense to you, see what will come of that. It's that time of year, you know? The dark time, it's almost Winsol (you know this reference?), it is that crazy time of cookie baking, childrens birthdays (yes both my kids are born in December, what was I thinking?!) and wait for it to get cold outside. I'm located in the far north of Germany, that little nub between northsea and baltic... no not D
  22. ☐ ☑ It is time. My birthday is coming up, a day of family and cake, and another of potluck and boardgames with friends and then I am officially a year older. Who would have thought? (What's with the English speaking side of the world continuing to pretend I were 29? What kinda BS is that? I LIVED those years. I EARNED those exp. Who dares try take that from me? -sometimes cultural differences are so hard.) Anyway Wednesday week 1 I am turning 33 and I love it. I am happy and proud to have run my very first Mud Run this past challenge. It was fun, and it was aw
  23. UNDER CONSTRUCTION! Yikes a Ranger amongst the Warrior! Now i've been snooping here and there, so i know there are and have been quite a few Rangers among you. My plan for the upcoming months might explain my presence here. My fitness subscription ends at the end of the year. Starting next year i am gonna give CrossFit a try. Now the last couple of years i was more endurance than strength and in order to prep the best way i know for going CrossFit is to work on my weakness. Getting stronger! Over the last 2 years i have been (on and off) doing some lifting on my own, bu
  24. "Back to the Grind" Prologue: Vacation is over. Horizon is looking calm, except for some wee bumps. Last few weeks were hard on the part of me that wants to get fit(ter) and lean(er). Going on vacation with the bike was just a very bad combination in regards to maintaining strict about a lot of things. Being around a group of bikers that drinks heavily every evening, combine that with a person who loves to have a beer, and you get the picture. Not being able to workout due to a number of things (daily schedule and the heat over there being the most important factors). Back home i w
