  1. Heyo! Decided to revamp my challenge on the 28th, a little more indepth if you read the original post in spoiler. But working on finding a Practicum/Job to finish my degree. Trying to make good choices along with it, and now if I follow through I'll reward myself with the Nintendo Switch and Ring Fit Adventure! Quest for the RING CHALLENGE Feb 28 - Week 3 Day 1 (just using normal challenge timeline now) 1. YNAB Reset - 0/0 2. Applications 0/1 3. Savings: 12% 4. Taxes: Federal done, State to be finished 5. Calorie Tracking: 1/1 Did the math f
  2. Hi everyone! I realized that I tend to by the same things every time I go to the store, win! But there's a point to it, I'm not sure what to do with all of this heathy food! Loss! I have around 20 items and I need help creating recipes that would be easy to meal plan with. I'll leave the list below, thanks! P.S also any way you can help me with budgeting all this would be greatly appreciated! I'm a poor college student now! Protein 1. Whole Eggs: cage free 2. Any of these could be in my kitchen, Lean Meats: Chicken, turkey, lean cuts of pork (like tenderloin), beef,
  3. Hello! It's been awhile. Oh... you don't remember me... oh... well... that's not surprising to be honest. I have a tendency to start one of these, post like once or twice, then drop off the face of the Earth for 3 or 4 challenges, then pop back up randomly to do it all again... BUT NO MORE! I have had enough. Lately I've been making more small changes in my life to be more present, active and get out of my comfort zone. I've been attending meetups with *gasp* ABSOLUTELY NO ONE I know *dies of shock* So, to further push myself I will do another challenge! But also back it
  4. What's a 260 lbs warrior to do? Cut the bullshit and stop being an asshole No more gluten free, paleo, eat only this, don't eat that... just don't eat like an asshole. No more half-assed, unplanned workouts or making excuses to get out of them... just don't work out like an asshole. No more not working and complaining about money problems... stop being a lazy asshole, and stop spending money like an asshole. The big thing is I'm prioritizing getting more hours at work so I can not be stiffing bills and better yet saving up. I also want to get myself back to li
  5. Sure one could slay dragons, but that seems so laden with tropes of farm boys with swords. I don't even own a pair of overalls, and the only sharp blades I keep are in my kitchen. Personally I'd rather make friends with a dragon or two. Then I have awesome dragon friends. Maybe one lets me ride on its back. Maybe we just make s'mores and talk about life. Anyway...let's meet the dragons I'll be befriending over the next 4 weeks. Budget the Mighty The most intimidating of all my dragons. This dragon can only be befriended through brutal honesty, a
  6. Yeeeeeeeeeep, it's about that time to kick off the Summer months with some fun and excitement. Upon special request from a few close friends, I will be doing a Mad Sweeney themed challenge over the next 4-weeks. Who is Mad Sweeney, you ask? Well he's a big ass Leprechaun who likes to brawl and perform coin tricks. Easily one of my favorite characters in the STARZ show, American Gods, based off the novel written by Neil Gaiman. If you really want to nerd out and find out more about Mad Sweeney, then you can view his complete history via THIS link. I've been on a roll lately with fit
  7. From 3/19 - 4/15 Animuse will... Challenge 1: Wake up at 6AM on weekdays I/We have been REALLY bad about what time I get in to work. I'm super privileged to work at a place that doesn't really care, but I want to get more out of my day, so leaving earlier would be cool. Also because... Challenge 2: Begin Couch to 5K! My husband's coworkers want to run a 5K in September, and my husband wants to go with. I... don't run. It's like the last ranger thing I DON'T do. So like a good(?)ranger, I'm gonna learn how. And do it in the morning. Or the eveni
  8. 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
  9. Shit happens. That is the premise of this challenge. If there is one constant in my life, it’s that something will always come along to cause upheaval. Good or bad, the end results are almost the same and more often than not have me retreating back to the start and trying to build anew on top of the rubble of failures past. This time it was the need to get a second job that threw me. Quick summary: Job 1 refused to up my contract hours, leaving me in a sticky financial situation. So I tracked down and secured Job 2. Now, J1 is a morning thing, often with 6am
  10. DAO Spoilers We saved the circle, big sigh of relief. I know Morrigan is not happy we saved it but we have our first allies! Wynne, the mage who helped us in the tower, has decided that life in the circle is not for her anymore and wishes to travel with us. Wynne’s alright and we can always use another to fight the darkspawn but she’s sort of old so I worry about her. She has some mad skills with magic though so that will help. Wait what... Once back at camp, Alistair suggested we go to Redcliffe for support next. With Loghain spreading
  11. Balsquith brings back the routine My last challenge was rather amusingly titled ‘Balsquith doesn’t give up’ and saw me disappear from the face of the earth after barely 2 weeks. The challenge itself wasn’t badly set up and I will be keeping parts of it here. This time around I will have 1 key goal, 2 goals to support it and a couple of additional goals. Key goal: Get up to my alarm everyday This goal is the key to everything, it is less about me being a heavy sleeper and groggily hitting my alarm clock and more about me already being mostly awake
  12. This story is not about him. For most of my life, I waited for Gandalf to show up. Not literally, although that would be cool, too. Most of the time life was fine; things were comfortable, I had no real complaints. But some days I'd sigh and wail and wonder why Gandalf never came to my door to say, "Here's an adventure, off you go." Then one day it occurred to me. What if I'm not Bilbo? What if ... I AM GANDALF?!? What if all along, I've been living this hobbity life and the whole time I'm really a meddlesome wizard instead? And I just never knew it? (You'd think I would notic
  13. Snow drifted gently from the heather-gray skies above, settling a blanket of white stillness around the courtyard. The priory was quiet on this early winter morning, the cold keeping everyone in their beds long past the sun's late rise. Kyellan swept the stones clear of the snowfall, though he knew he would be doing the same a mere hour later. The elder brothers could not traverse slick walks, and there was no sense inviting injury when it could so easily be avoided. The world seemed impossibly quiet, with all the animals in hibernation and the birds flown to warmer climes. A gentle chirp
  14. MAIN QUEST: Continue self-improvement, become a Triple Threat (act, sing, and dance awesomely), and don't burn out! Every third challenge, I burn out, and I spend the challenge after that licking my wounds and trying to get back on the horse. Not this time! I will continue the hard work I’ve put in instead of taking a step back, because Reborn would expect no less from one who is to become head of the Vongola Family, so why should I expect any less from myself? QUEST 1: EAT TO SURVIVE REBORN’S TRAINING [+3 CON] Reborn’s training is brutal, and it’s impossible to survive without
  15. “Welcome, chummer. If you’re viewing this, it means I’m either dead or finally out of the running business. Either way, I’m out of the picture so the information contained within can do no harm to myself or those I might care about. I’ve tried to keep any dangerous references to a minimum and even use different names for added protection. For example, you can call me Cloud. Let me introduce you to the rest of my crew. Yeah I know, we use aliases from some video game of ages past, but hey it just clicked once we realized our skills as a team so save me the irony and bear with me, a'ig
  16. Hi! For those who are new. I'm a 35 year old computer programmer from northern germany. I train chen style taijiquan. It's a martial art from china. The better known druidic tai chi orginiated from it. My introduction thread: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/65161-hello-from-germany/ My nickname is burrowed from a general. According to the historians he is guy who wrote the first text (in the 16th hundreds) about taiji. So as i like to geek out about china(been there 4 times), i thought a reference to sun tzu's classic would be a nice theme for my next challenge. Now
  17. Actress by midnight, rocket scientist by daylight… wait. That’s not how that goes. MAIN QUEST: Establish healthy habits and make permanent changes. Because after a year on NF, I’m still relying on these challenges to stay on top of being healthy, and it’s time to really start solidifying these things as real and true habits once and for all. QUEST 1: DON’T EAT LIKE USAGI [+4 CON] For Usagi, every day is a cheat day. I, fortunately, have better self-control and only have cheat days once a week, but even once a week is too much. Getting rid of cheat days altogether isn’t a s
  18. Greetings and Salutations Fellow Adventurers! You had me at the Star Wars opening theme in the mini-quest Hiraedd. My main quest: To increase my endurance, strengthen and tone my flabby post-two children body. I want to inspire my kids to be active, healthy, and physically fit. I want my family to have a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. Part 1: Do the beginners strength training/body weight work out twice a day three times a week. (+2 STR, +2 STA) 1a) I will do the BBWW on Tuesday, Thursdays, and Saturdays 1b) One circuit will be done either in the morning after I wake u
  19. "There can be miracles when you believe. Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill. Who knows what miracles you can achieve? When you believe, somehow you will." The Curly-Haired Warrior turns up her ipod tunage, ties her running shoes tight and takes a last swig of water. She's about to go hard. She ain't going nowhere but up, and she certainly isn't going home (until she's tired). This is her first full challenge, and she's determined to make it a good one. GOALS: 1. fuel the body. Eat a minimum of one portion of vegetables for lunch and dinner two portions of veg per day. [changed be
  20. IF Verizon successfully installs fios at my house then I'll be able to update my goals tonight while crying over my internet bill. If not, then I'll update my goals tomorrow at work.
