  1. Okay, so, in keeping with the spirit of simplicity, I've got one primary goal for this challenge. I'm going to walk 50 miles in August. This means that I probably have to do 5k, 4 days a week. That would put me at about 51 for the month. I might mix it up a little: throw some bike miles on there (once I have my repair kit) at the same 3 biking: 1 walking ratio that I used previously. There will probably be some dog hikes in there too. I went back and did the calcs: last month I put around 42 miles on the clock, which is good. That should make 50 a bit of a s

I'll try to be sensitive to triggers, include warnings such as this where needed, and use spoilers when necessary. but this is my "cover my butt" warni
  3. In the two weeks leading up to this challenge I've been focused on sustaining my sobriety (12 days and counting) and my general health and well-being - finding better balance and growing in gratitude, humility and wisdom. I aim to cultivate a more balanced, fun, grateful, engaged/connected/present, and healthy life. I've titled this challenge "Back in the saddle" because I want to prioritize a few things I've neglected in recent months, biking among them. Here are my four goals: 1) Ride my bicycle 200 or more miles between July 1 and July 28 2) Pack a healthy, balanced lunc
  4. 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.

    about me lover of cookies, bikes, music, llw, and lounging. liker of many other things. This is me cramping my way through the Santa Monica mountains at the inaugural Malibu Gran Cookie Dough/Phil's Fondo. Would be nice to do more epic rides like this without my legs trying to kill me. about this challenge Focusing on 3 things. Doing more of what I love, improving my physical health, and improving the living part of life.

  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. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES In keeping with tradition, when Jothra arrived at his hut back on Lodbrok, one of the Old Men of the Rebellion was already waiting for him. The novelty of their sudden visits had long since worn off, so Jothra hung his jacket on the Old Man's pointy-hatted head, and started installing the coffee maker he'd found in a cave, guarded by a gnome or a hobbit or something. After a few moments of flailing his way out from under the jacket, the Old Man spoke. "I hope you've had fun wasting
  8. It is really hard to find GIFs of this show. After yet another harrowing adventure, Jothra heard tell of a tropical island nearby. It sounded like vacation time to him! He used his ever-growing prowess on the bike path through time and space to check the place out... ...only to find it in a permanent state of 1930s-ness. It was like being stuck in a TV adventure series. No rest for him! Donald P. Bellisario first proposed Tales of the Gold Monkey in the 1970s, telling networks that a 1930s adventure show would delight and thrill audiences. He was repeatedly turned down.
  9. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Seconds after Jothra had picked up the ratty old journal and re-entered his house, the rain started pouring in buckets. Damp and unfortunate, sure, but hardly foreboding. Jothra was a fairly skeptical person, despite having spent quite some time in a place with cardboard-winged flying people and extant dinosaurs in top hats. So when he found the journal full of descriptions of strange creatures, he was about to dismiss it outright. Until he found a page about a portal. According to the book, Jothra's Rebellion-provided home was located
  10. Jothra opened his eyes, immediately regretted it, and closed them again. His head felt a pain unlike any known form of pain. He decided to just lie here and hope he didn't get eaten while he waited for the thudding headache to subside. He heard a weird snorting noise nearby. It didn't sound like any of the slurpasaurs or dromeosaurs he had been getting used to. Despite his aching everything, he took a look. He blinked once or twice to make sure he wasn't seeing things. "Oh, great," he moaned. "Just great." Was it some kind of zombie? It was green and disgusting, w
  11. Just respawned last Monday. (See my topic here in the Respawn Point.) Here be my training log, for better or worse. Current goal: Establish weekly routine of 30 minutes on bicycle, every MWF. (I'm starting very small.) Monday: 30 min. on bicycle Wednesday: 30 min. on bicycle
  12. Just wanted to have a place to start writing things down again. I've been away from NF for about five weeks. Spent most of the month of September either ramping up the school year where I work (CU Boulder), or on vacation in the Pacific Northwest (North WET!), or on a business trip to the greater DC area for work. Mind you I wasn't a couch potato during any of that, though the days with the 12-14 hour drives were pretty rough, non-moving-wise. But since there's a 6-week challenge currently underway, I thought I'd start posting what I've been up to here at least as a form of self-accountabi
  13. One of my all-time favorite movie series was Peter Jackson's version of The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. Such a rich story, brought to life in a way that was beautiful and amazing on so many levels. Not to mention shot in my favorite place, New Zealand. Anyway, what better way to frame my upcoming challenge than through the richness that is the fellowship of the ring. 1. The grace and beauty of the elves: Music We just got a piano! I used to play... and I want to get better. So I'm going to practice. Five days a week, I'll practice 20 min or more. Starting with some Ha
  14. So, spring is coming to Minneapolis, probably, and with it I'll be hoping to break my trusty steed out of the shed and start riding it to work again. But there's a problem with that plan, I'm not ready for that physically. My mount is a XL Cannondale Quick5 and it really isn't meant for a rider over 200 lbs. I'm currently clocking in the 270 neighborhood, I'm also not ready from a cardio perspective. On the bright side, I doubt it's going to be warm enough for me to consider riding until the end of the challenge. I plan to see just how much weight I can reasonably healthily loose in 6 wee
  15. Ciao, Scouts! My name is Jess. I'm 22, and I'm on a quest to lose 100 pounds and get strong, fast, agile and healthy. I’ll be honest. I haven’t weighed myself in awhile. I have no idea how much I weigh, but if I had to guess I’m somewhere close to 210-215 maybe? I’m around around 35-40 pounds down from my highest weight. I’m moving out of the adventurer portion of my journey. I’m an assassin at heart, but I thought it was more appropriate to train with the scouts for this challenge. I’m completing a half marathon in January, and I need to learn from the finest endurance athlet
  16. I came into the last challenge about halfway through and had goals that focused mostly on working towards lifestyle changes. In this challenge, I will have more numeric end goals now that I have more of an idea of what I am doing fitness- and diet-wise. I am halfway through a Whole30 and after that will experiment with different amounts of Paleo-ness (with a goal to basically just be as Paleo as I can without sacrificing my happiness, sanity, and relationships). I will not have any specific diet goals this challenge, but will continue to be very conscious about it (it's hard NOT to when you've
