  1. My mother died in October (at age 85). My daughter got married in October, and she and her new husband are starting to talk about having kids. This has prompted some new soul searching on my part - and some thinking about what I want to accomplish in my life. And some thinking about what I want to BE as a grandma. (Disclaimer - my daughter is not yet pregnant and doesn't plan to have kids for 2 years, which gives me time to lose 40 pounds .....) I was a "cool mom." My daughter looks back on her childhood with fondness - at horseback riding and rock climbing and hockey and socc
  2. HELLO THERE and WELCOME to what is probably take 38 of Shaar Actually Posting Enough to Finish an Actual Challenge......... WILL IT HAPPEN??? Ahahahahaha yeah hmm we’ll see about that~ >:3 Hi friends, I missed you! ❤️ Brief Intro: Hello I am shaar!! I’ve been here on and off for almost a decade now (!!!) and it’s no joke when I say that Nerd Fitness changed my life. I’ve lived up and down the east coast but am currently (and very happily) settled in a comfy little town in central Massachusetts not far from where I grew up. I live with my boyfriend of almost a year n
  3. - - - Her favorite time of day was twilight, where the sun had barely crested down beneath the horizon, lifting one last futile glow of the promise of daytime against the encroaching night sky. The melange of dying gold merging into the comfortable slate-blue atmosphere of whatever bits of daylight were left, giving way to the yawning darkness of space. She found it fascinating and sat, enrapt, small form curled into itself under her fur-lined charcoal cloak, chin resting on bent knees as she just... watched. She watched the sky change before her eyes, the colors dance
  4. Wowie wow wow last challenge of the year AND my 50th - yike I’ve been here for a hot minute, huh? This challenge when completed, will be number 50 for me. And that’s just the ones I’ve successfully finished, not counting the pile of half-assed incomplete challenges where I’ve fallen into a void hole or something. LEVEL 50 IS PRETTY BIG! As always I’m so grateful for this community - for all of YOU - for always being here and being so supportive. Nerd Fitness has really seen me shoulder some of the hardest times of my life and somehow come out screaming on
  5. Oh hey look I changed my name back~ IT ME! DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK, I’VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS (that’s a ll cool j song you know) And hopefully maybe this time my dumb ass can finish a challenge? Maybe?? ? ? ??? Hi friends, I missed you all so v. much ❤️ So Loire is back to Shaar because let’s be real, that’s who I am, and like my name change I am also.... Back to basics here. My life has been STUPID busy and somehow it’s all good shit despite Madam Rona rearing her ugly-ass head again lately... cases here are climbing slowly again (like I’m
  6. Hi friends! Welcome to my throwback challenge, in MORE ways than one. :3 Everything is Chaos and I’m feeling like I’m in some ways, starting over, cobbling together a new routine in a world that doesn’t look like it’s going to be going back to the normal we know anytime soon. The goals I was pushing for are either unavailable right now or just don’t fit into the life I’m living, SO. It’s time to go back to the start and tackle some throwback goals to start building a new foundation! What better to do this with than the remake of one of the best and most iconic RPGs ever? FF7R
  7. HELLO FRIENDS Actual goals coming soon~ [edit] Actual goals are here! .... Kind of~ This is a real loose theme around the gacha game Arknights. TL;DR, you're allowed to do missions until your Sanity Meter (upper right) runs out; it's kinda a way of throttling player advancement so the game can be experienced over a course of time, as opposed to binging everything all at once. (I like it, it encourages me to step away and do other things~) How the actual shit do I keep my sanity meter intact while
  8. Hi guys! Holy crap what a big challenge! NERD FITNESS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!! Can you believe it?!!? I can’t!1/!?11 It was the fall of 2014, and I was at Forever 21 trying on cute dresses for work. I remember trying on some in my usual size, 6, and it was just the breaking point. Nothing fit, nothing zipped up right, nothing felt good, I felt like a human sausage and I’d finally had it. A bad dress shopping experience finally put my path back into my own hands as the next day at work I googled “fitness for nerds”. And the rest, as they say, is histor
  9. Hi pals~ I sat around and thought on this challenge for a while. The first challenge of a new decade?!1?!? That’s BIG RIGHT?? What should I -do-?... Start over. 2019 was a big, big year for me. Perhaps one of the best of my life. There was a lot of luck involved but also a lot of hard work on my part with adjusting to literally a Whole New Life and, not gonna lie, I killed it. But some other things took a backseat in the meantime, namely my fitness and health habits. I look back to when I first joined NF in 20...14? And I’ve bac
  10. MY FRIENDS, WHAT IS UP I've kinda taken a bit of time away from the forums in my last challenge - October's been a busy month full of commitments and fun and AWESOMENESS. TL;DR I'm still actively living my best life and after some time away - and away from everything to reset and recharge - literally tho', I'm currently spending a week at a little coastal New England cabin and it's PERFECT - I'm ready to slam the reset button on my goals and GET GOING AGAIN. More details to come but I wanted to get this post going 'cause I'm HYPE. Goals will SU
  11. Gather 'round ye young and old. Listen close as this story unfolds. I tell the tale of a party of four and the epic adventure that was in store. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! There was a fiery barbarian, a fallen hexblade, a clerical modron and me, the horned bard - little did they know, this adventure would be hard. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! Through dungeons they would explore and monsters they would battle, the journey ahead would be a difficult one traveled. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! Would they succeed? This was a questi
  12. Okokok HI FRIENDS~ I've based this challenge theme off my two favorite classes in FFXIV - Bard and Dark Knight. ( I know, you're SOOooOOoOOoo surprised~) Y'all know what a bard is obvs but the Dark Knight class is a tanking job with a big sword (see above) that's pretty much a combination of My Chemical Romance and Hot Topic and too much black eyeliner and has skill names like Delerium and Quietus and The Blackest Night IT'S NOT JUST A PHASE MOM The challenge theme really isn't apropos of anything, I just like the classes and wanted to cram them together to
  13. *emerges from a secretive cave beneath a mysterious mountain a week late, as is per the norm lately~* OHO~ Crap guys it sure has been a while huh. HELLO HI GREETINGS! Jeez, where do I even start now?? Okokok, TL;DR version RQ - Last August I uprooted my entire life in North Carolina to move back home to Massachusetts. It’s been a long and, at times, heavy adjustment period as Literally Every Aspect of My Life Was Different. It’s been almost a year since the move and I feel like I’m finally at a point where I’ve settled into a comf
  14. HI GUYS It is... springtime! (Is it? ???) Everyone is posting pics of leaves and blooms and flowers and I'm still looking out the window at bare trees and freshly mulched plots just w a i t i n g ............. Anyways my life has been 110% gogogo since uh. January? When I started my new job (which I love), and since I started fitting the gym back into my life routine (which I also love), so keeping up with challenge goals outside of DON'T FORGET TO SLEEP has been HARD for me! Life is seriously great for me right now after a long string of struggles and a
  15. Hihi y’all, WOO NEW CHALLENGE TIME~ I was gonna write a little bit of narrative for this originally but the nerw boards go up faster than a duck on a junebug lately so, time, not on my side. OH WELL. Perhaps later? Anywho, welcome back to the Furyheart Chronicles!~ <3 What is a furyheart? It’s everything I aspire to be - full of confidence and optimism and unstoppable fire, ready for adventures and whatever the world decides to throw at me. Knowing I can take on whatever obstacles come my way and come out the other side, while not necessarily unscath
  16. (it rhymes~) *runs in like some kind of maniac* WOWJEEZ it's new challenge time already??!? Where does the TIME GO.... Hi guys, it's me Shaar, and here's where I'm at right now in my crazy chaos life!~ I'm at a new job and it's been rolling for two weeks now, and I'm starting to get settled into more of a routine and schedule. I've been thinking about my goals and while I wish they could contain consistant fitness, right now, I need to admit that just can't happen. With everything going on it's just not a current priority, and I'm okay with that. BUT, I
  17. As dust gets swept away by footsteps of the newly arrived, a few pick pen and ink to dribble on recent developments. Many have perished on this path, many might never attempt it. “A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war: wide-awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake, and whoever makes it might never live to regret it†-- Carlos Castañeda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge You have accessed Aeri's battle log, and are welcome to give input or press for oath keeping. Much love
  18. "You have to give it a name." The words were a gentle tug, but she couldn't bring herself to open her eyes yet. She wasn't sure where she was, how she got here, even who she was… The Voice seemed to sense this, somehow, and continued speaking. "Yours is Shaar Al-Khatabi." Ah. That sounded familiar. She mouthed the words slowly, 'al-khatabi', as if pronouncing them for the first time. But they were hers, through and through. Shaar Al-Khatabi continued taking slow metered breaths, the air brisk and cold in her lungs and equally heavy in scent,
  19. Hoo boy howdy y’all. Hoo. Boy. Howdy. 2018 has been a YEAR. I’ve had some challenging years but this one takes the cake, hands down. It’s been a literal Maximum Chaos Party but it’s coming to a close and after everything that’s happened and everything I’ve shouldered and powered through I’m determined to finish STRONG AS HECK Y’ALL. 2019 is coming and I've still got a lot ahead of me to accomplish, a lot, so I'm going to take the time this challenge to rest and stay steady and reflect on exactly where I've been, and where I'm going. My goals a
  20. HI FRIENDS, welcome to... uh-- *checks calendar quietly* OCTOBER yes yes!! Welcome to another caps-lock heavy fun-filled shaar style challenge!~ I'll spare you the details of the comedy/tragedy that has been my 2018, y'all probably know my story by now, but if not, JUST ASK, or something..... or read my old posts, I'm an open book. Kinda. A little. I’ve decided to go with an actual theme this time, even if it is just a minor theme of characters I really enjoyed in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Danganronpa is a visual novel type of game, think Phoenix Wright meets Pe
  21. Hi guys, happy fall!! (FINALLY am I right?!!?!) (Kinda maybe??) I have been waiting for this challenge for probably longer than I even know. If you’re new here or coming back from a prolonged chaos-moment (which I feel in my very soul) TL;DR, over the past 4 months I’ve completely uprooted my life - sold a house in the south, separated amicably from my partner of over a decade, tossed most of my belongings, packed up the remainder, and moved 800 miles north to find a new path. I’ve successfully set myself on fire and come out the other side heavily charred but also very much alive, and for
  22. Nerds, comrades, friends, GREETINGS! Welcome to........ The Big One. The start of the ULTRA. MEGA. SHAAR RESPAWN CHRONICLES. So a quick recap from my last challenge, if you’ve lost your mind in the interim (like me) or if you’re new to these bardly parts - TL;DR, my house sold and is about to close this week, I’ve separated from my partner of 11 years (we live together and are still extremely close, which may make this harder), I’m quitting my job of 6.5 years in 2 weeks, and in the last week of August we’re loading up all of our crap to make the final roa
  23. (i feel this gif speaks to me on a personal level recently) HI EVERYONE WELCOME To whatever the heck this challenge is~ :DDDD If we haven’t met yet; hi! I’m shaar, longtime ranger and bard extraordinaire, I like lifting, lots of video games (no really don’t test me), caps lock hyperbole, food, and apparently piloting sky pirate airships. If we HAVE met; hihihi and welcome back my lovely nerdfriend I am so glad to have you here again~ <3 2018 thus far has been nothing short of a Fascinating Sort of Chaos for me and
  24. I've been racking my brain for a challenge theme but I've got nothin' except LIZARDS. Specifically mine. I mean, all lizards are cool tho'. They are v. happy and bring a heckin' JOY to the world!!!!!! And also quite STRONK AND FIERCE >:[[[[[ I also play a big ol' lizard in FFXIV - YOU KNOW, THAT GAME I OFTEN HONK ABOUT - here is his current look of rocking a springtime festival skirt and WIELDING AN ENORMOUS AXE 'cause he's quite fabulous and that's how we do.
  25. What are your favorite tunes for working out? You're extra brave if you share your Spotify playlist! My favorites right now for lifting: Herr Mannelig, Garmarna You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You) The Notorious B.I.G. x Gon' Give it to Ya, DMX Easy Love, Lauv
