  1. So excited to be starting the second challenge of 2018! I crushed 2/4 of my goals for the last challenge, and am raring to up my game this time. From the last challenge I learned that one main goal works best, and then a couple little goals to round it out. Main goal: Eat more food!! Aiming for 1700-2000 calories/day. Goal is to weigh a steady 95 lbs at the end of this challenge. Gulp! Starting weight: 93.5lbs. I need to pre-plan my food and make sure I eat throughout the day. 6/7 small meals or snacks. I think a good idea would be to plan out
  2. I need to define my goals: short-term, long-term, personal, professional, all of it. I'm drifting between things I think I should be doing and things I feel I have to do, and I'm not happy. My needs aren't being met because I don't know what they are right now. I have things I want to do but am scared to make big changes because it could mean losing my stability. THE PLAN, in order of priority: Start meditating Figure out my needs, work on my goals Work out at LEAST 2x/week I'm not going to track food/fasting or yoga. Those are fine right now. (Yay!)
  3. It's not about the fact that you stopped, but about starting again, as many times as you need to. Been thinking a lot about body image, mental health, and how exercise ties in so closely with both of those things. My story so far ... I joined Nerd Fitness and was successful in losing the 20lbs I'd wanted to lose for years. But I stopped working out nearly two years ago because my knee was hurting so much and my physiotherapist said she'd show me how to do squats properly. She never did. I went through a rough break up ~six months later and didn't have the me
  4. I bombed most of the items last challenge, and I still think I could have done better on the one thing I passed. I sunk into a nasty sorrow during the challenge, and I still feel mostly just overwhelmed and unorganised. Like I can't pull anything together. I'm starting to see more brain fog, mental chatter, and depression - destroying these was one of my main goals so I know I'm not winning there. Science says this is probably from sugar consumption, and last challenge in spite of good meal choices I still ate a lot of sugar. I need to rely on everyone here to keep me accountable an
  5. So I'm back up to the weight (or something close to it) and size that I was when I first joined Nerd Fitness and started working out. The last three years have taught me that weight and size don't really matter to me though; it's strength and flexibility I'm after. I want to be able to crush watermelons with my thighs! I want to be able to outmanoeuvre people bigger and stronger than me if we were to wrestle. I know that it took me about four months to get to a shape I was proud of the first time I did this, and I got there through calorie reduction, BBWW, and swimming. I know I can do it agai
  6. So last challenge wasn't as A+ amazing as the first, but it was still a great learning experience. I know that I'm currently struggling at the more "druidy" things so I've sent my Death Knight for a retreat in Lorlathil. She's meditating, exercising, reading, practicing her talents, and eating really green things. So while she's at that, what will I be doing to keep up with her? More Plants! Follow the "Foodist Plate" suggestion with 1/2 of lunch and supper being vegetables 5 days a week. I found out last challenge that I've been lying to mysel
  7. I love tea. I love to sample all the different kinds, I love to mix and match the loose-leaf teas, I love the smell, the warmth, the flavour. Tea is awesome. Tea is calming. Since I'm hoping to use the calming benefits of tea to help me this challenge, and since I have other calming elements scattered throughout this challenge then I think tea shall be my theme. Well, tea and cats. The cat gifs are addicting. >.> You cat people have won me over. Tea before Treats I may have a snack whenever I please - I just must have a cup of tea first. What do
  8. Following on from last time - don't mess with success! Daily Knee exercises 2X bodyweight or mobility exercises Draw something Weekly (minimum) Meditate Go for a walk Week 1 Knees: 2/4 Workouts: 1/4 Drawing: 3/4 Meditate: no Walk: no
  9. Keeping it simple theme-wise with good ol' Metallica. Get carried away with a theme? Who, me? I'm two weeks in to my Epic Travel Adventure which I've been planning for over a year, and amongst all the excitement I want to keep up some good habits. I'm doing work exchanges similar WWOOFing to pay my way, so the demands on my body will be variable. I'm aiming for a very simple challenge that won't add physical or mental strain, but instead fill in the gaps and help keep my body working well. I'll take my time anywhere Knee exercises at least 5/7 days a week. And
  10. Hiya! I am usually with the Rangers but I'm dropping in to glean some Assassin-y wisdom. This challenge I'm putting myself through boot camp. Oh no, not the kind with yelling and mud. The kind with glitter, love and self-improvement. (And maybe a little mud.) The format will be a little different to typical challenges. Basically I've set aside this month, in which I'm moving back in with my parents, to make the final preparations for my Epic Travel Adventure. This will involve WWOOFing in Australia and Germany for (hopefully) a year. I'm miles ahead of where I used t
  11. ...like no one ever was!!! That's right, this challenge is pokémon themed. And spreadsheet fueled. And all kinds of awesome. Of course I'm doing all the things again, so I thought I'd hop back in with the Rangers to see what you guys've been up to but I've really been focusing on balance practice lately and I want to get more bodyweight stuff and gymnastics going on, so I've decided to move to the Assassins at long last. I've been slipping into their minis for the last few challenges anways I'll start a new job this month (and will also celebrate my 1 year
  12. I started out a couple of years ago successfully completing my first challenge, then tried a couple of more times and never finished one again. So, here I am again, because why not try again? Ultimate Goal More strength and flexibility (not only physically, but emotionally and mentally as well). Get down to under 160lbs and stay there. I've been between 165-170 for a couple of years now after starting at 180 and weight loss is part of health for me at this point. This doesn't have to be accomplished in this challenge. Diet/Fitness Yoga Yoga 3 t
  13. I’m starting to look at fitness from a Warcraft perspective. Ultimately, the goal is raid progression (for me, anyway). You want to beat the newest content and be ready for the next patch. In order to be successful, you need to understand the mechanics behind your class – and how to utilize those mechanics. This is me – er, well the WoW version of me. Phedre. Baller Frost Mage who achievement hunts like there’s no tomorrow. If I weren’t a progression raider, I’d probably be in a guild that solely focuses on achievements (and yes – that is really my guild name. Pirate Hookahs
  14. TTZZAAPP!!! A PUFF OF SMOKE AND... Granny Nogg has turned herself into a little brown mouse. The first thought that enters her mouse brain is, "Cheese. .. I smell cheese!!" Lovely, golden, creamy, tangy cheese is going to help Granny Nogg gain some serious mouse muscles. That, and lifting heavy things to the Rocky theme song. Or Disco. Because Disco isn't Dead. Fitness: Do the BBWW 3x a week (Tue/Thu/Sat). Progression in squats, lunges, and dumbbell weight. Track workouts in spreadsheet. Track steps the other 4 days with my FitBit. Diet: Track my food daily with My Fitness Pal.
  15. Hi all! I'm NeverThatBored, and my goal in life is basically to be really cool. I also wouldn’t mind losing the last 10-15 pounds I need to hit my goal weight. But mainly, I want to be cool. I'm moving over from the adventurers for my 6th challenge. I used a point system I used for my last challenge that allowed me to earn bonus points, which helped me get rid of the dangerous idea of cheat days. It was - dare I say it - cool? So I’m going to riff of my last challenge goals again this time. Goal 1: Food (Follow a Primalish Meal Plan) I had a cool detailed 6 week food challenge already
  16. Granny Nogg is a mashup of two Terry Pratchett characters: Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax. Both are old hedge witches with alot of spunk. If you're curious about them, you can find them in the Discworld fantasy novels series. I'm choosing Disco as my theme for this challenge, because its the type of music I listen to when I'm working out. I've been a member of NF since October 2014. I'd taken a break for the last few months and this is my first challenge after my return. I'm working on the BBWW (Beginner Body Weight Workout), losing (and maintaining the loss of) that last 20 pounds and ga
  17. Super excited to not be a recruit anymore! Can't wait to start my path to awesome assassin-ness! So, after being successful at my recruit challenge, I'm gonna put myself out there a bit more and let people view my measurement tracking (here) and my meal tracking via MyFitnessPal (here). Feel free to check out! Though I don't play WoW anymore, I'm going to take my theme from there, a nod of sorts to my 6 year addiction to the game. Main Goal - Preparation, +3 CON (A=206lbs, B=208lbs, C=210lbs)- As you can see below, I originally (in July) set a tentative goal of reaching 200 pounds by the N
  18. Hi, This will be my first challenge as an Assassin! I’m excited I’ll be turning 40 at the end of November and am planning to have the greatest year yet. Here’s what I’ll be working on this challenge: Quest #1: Keep getting stronger and increase flexibility A - BBWW 3 times a week (2 STR, 1 STA) B - Yoga 2 times a week (2 DEX) 1 day per week BBWW can be replaced with another activity - cross-country skiing, biking, stacking firewood, dance, fitness mini-challenges, etc. (I want to encourage myself to get outside more and to do things with other people whenever I have the opport
  19. Hi All, I’m NeverThatBored and this will be my 5th challenge at Nerd Fitness. I’ve produced mixed results so far, with challenges 1 and 3 going well and challenges 2 and 4 going less well. In my last challenge, I took my challenge 3 goals and made them slightly harder, but I learned that that slight hurdle was much larger than I imagined. So for this challenge, I’m modifying those goals again, but I’m trying a different approach. My health is holistic, and my accomplishments on different goals play off of each other. With that in mind, I’ll treat this challenge more like a game w
  20. Oh, hello! Good to see you again? Or wait, it isn't again for you yet, is it? Yes, sorry, as you were then. Here's the deal: this universe is wrong, messed up, out of whack, bad. Something happened that shouldn't have happened, and now things aren't the way they should be. So what we're going to have to do is take this bit that isn't/wasn't/shouldn't have been and put it into that bit that is/was/should have been and then everything will reset and it will all be grand! I mean, it'll take a lot of hard work, and probably quite a bit of running, but it should all work out in the end. I hope..
  21. I used the same name as my last challenge, because this time it’s a pun. I’m hilarious. Hi, I’m NeverThatBored and this is my fourth challenge. I’m trying to get fit for a lot of reasons - to make shopping for clothes and looking nice easier, to be able to keep up with people when they do something athletic, so that I don’t feel limited by my body, to get rid of annoying aches and pains, to hopefully lower my genetically high cholesterol, etc. After a blip in my second challenge, my third challenge went very well! I was able to meet my goals, but I didn’t see the same (any)
  22. CRAZY TIMES! I just got back from 9 days of camping, I only just barely had enough time to unpack all the camping supplies last night (didn't sleep well). Also, just before camping I was moving into a new house, I had only slept there 3 nights and so it still doesn't feel like home, so a big part of this challenge is going to be re-establishing my healthy routines. Since it doesn't feel like home yet, cooking and exercising have felt wierd and off thus far. Also, it feels like I am living in someone else's house and I have yet to take any ownership. I feel like this whole challenge is going
  23. Epic Life Quest Owning & Running Our Dream Homestead Farmers Market by NatalieMaynor, on Flickr This 6-week challenge Do my bodyweight training Mondays and Fridays (doing the thing is enough. no need to add yet)Take a lunch to work 4/5 workdays so I'm not eating fries or such for lunch every dayStick with the No-S Diet (no snacks, no sweets, no seconds, except sometimes on days starting with S)Walk at least 30 minutes daily Side Quest Meditate at least 5 minutes daily
  24. In several of the stories that I love, the hero must face a near-insurmountable number of stairs. For Link, it's the final spire of Zelda's overrun castle, Ocarina of Time around his neck, sword in hand. Up and up the stairs he went. Within the forest, Utena climbs the Mirrored Arena, an ever-winding spiral of steps, to defend her claim to the Rose Bride. At the end of all the worlds, Roland faces the Black Tower, the fall and rise of each staircase running him ragged. Those don't all have the same ending, though. Link faces the boss for the final time. Utena makes the journey several times
  25. Helly everyone, this is my first Adventurer Challenge. After starting in recruits last challenge I still haven't quite figured out where I fit in guild-wise and since I want to do a bit of everything this time, I guess the Adventurers are for me. A bit of a background: I'm 28 years old and live with my boyfriend and two cats in a nice not-so-little town in Germany. I started Nerdfitness 6 weeks ago when I looked at photographs from a vacation with friends and really didn't like the way I looked in them. My starting weight was 70kg (154 pounds) although it's not as much about losing weight as
