  1. The Time Management beast can't be a dragon. It just can't. So it's a gnome. It looks innocent and harmless, and you don't even think you need to wage battle, let alone that it would be a tough one if you do. But gnomeses are sneaky and little and their teeth are sharp. And they are worthy if diminutive foe. And boy oh boy to I have a swarm of gnomes coming down on me! I am just straight up short on time this challenge. I have a LOT of things that need to get done. I have a lot of prior commitments. And I am trying to get a job in a new city, so depending on how that goes, I may have a whole 'nother set of things to take care of! Naturally, what bugs me the most about this is is not KNOWING which immediate future I am planning for... So yes. This challenge is about getting stuff done, but it's also largely about staying sane while I do it. So here are the various gnomic categories that will be occupying my efforts: 1. American Sign Language Class: Every Tuesday and Thursday, except April 27th. I have barely enough time to eat supper after work, and I don't get home until after 9pm, so Tues/Thurs cannot accommodate any further scheduling, unless it's before work. (Blergk!) 2. Workouts: twice a week 3. Disc Golf: I have been bitten by the competitive disc golf bug, and I am determined to get better and do well in tournaments this year! There's a tournament this weekend, and one May 6-7 that will fall under this challenge. Obviously I also need to get lots of practice in - this doesn't have a specific schedule, but will be taking up a great deal of what little spare time I have. This also has a secondary aspect, which is that the hubs and I are 4. Purge the house. If we ARE moving, we need to seriously downsize the absurd amount of possessions we have. If not, this is still a good thing to get done. We have more space that we need in our current abode, and it has just collected clutter, and I'm done with it. So some of these things will be part of my goals, and others are just challenges that I will need to work around to get my other goals done. Without further ado, here are my goals! Eat: But not gluten. Less than 120g of carbs each day. At least 80g of protein. Simple, yes? 1 pt per item per day. Bonus point for carbs below 80g. Bonus point for dairy-free days. A - 84pts B - 74 pts C - 63pts D - 53pts +3CHA Bike: 130 kms. Ease into it for week one, then bike commute daily for weeks 2-4. My bus pass runs out at the end of April, at which point I will switch to bike commuting. It's not far at all (4.2km one way) and takes me about 20 minutes (closer to 15 once I'm in shape!). I need to rent a locker, since I'll be showering at work, and I need to get my stamina back up! The biggest obstacle with this is that I am usually completely wiped out for the first week or so until I get used it again. If I miss a day, I can make up the kms with other biking, that's fine. Weather and sleeping in happen sometimes... I also have a physio appt sometime during this challenge I think, so I'll have to drive that day. A - 130kms B - 115kms C - 100kms D - 85kms +3END Workout: Twice a week. Gym sessions. One on Sundays, one weekday morning. Yes, I'mma have to get up damn early for this. Sigh. A - 8pts B - 6pts C - 4pts D - 2pts +2STR, +2DEX Steps: Take at least 308,000 of them during the course of the challenge. That's 11,000 per day. I have a goal of averaging 10,000 steps per day over the entirety of 2017. I'm a little behind on this right now, so I'm aiming to gain some ground. A - 308,000 B - 299,000 C - 290,000 D - 280,000 +2END PURGE: Get rid of excess possessions. Donate and sell if possible. Throw away if not. Clean as we go. There are a couple rooms that are especially daunting, and so they will be the primary focus of this challenge. 1. Basement Storage Room #1 - this mostly contains camping gear, old shoes, winter gear, supplies for our business and a giant wooden thingy that was rescued from a job site for absolutely no purpose other than to take up room in our house. 2. Basement Storage Room #2 - this is full of recycling, cardboard boxes, tools and assorted building supplies. 3. Craft Room - this one is all on me. I have a LOT of crafting supplies. Like... a lot. The only other thing this room contains is the cat litter and one bookshelf.. and it is full. That being said, every other room in the house needs this treatment, except the upstairs bathroom, which is the only one I've completed so far. So I can still get points for other rooms, but no bonus prize unless I get the 3 big ones done. 10 pts awarded for each primary room complete. 2 pts each for any other room. A - 30pts B - 20pts C - 10pts BONUS PRIZE for 40 pts achieved. TBD. +3INT
  2. Ok so what can I say? How about a little fact profile... Height: 5'4 Weight: 10st 4lb Ideal Weight: 9st What I Am going to do to get there: eat more fruit and vegetables, exercise at least three times a week, keep this thread updated every day to keep track on my progress ​Challenge started: 12th March 2015 Well there's my life in a nut shell. Since moving into my own place this year I've gone from 9st 8lb to that and obviously I'm not happy about it! Ideally I want to get fit and loose weight but motivation is an issue. I just come in from work so tired! Oh, I work as a groom on a horse yard and ride most days as well, yet another reason to loose weight so I can ride more horses and fitter so I can ride better. I think most the exercise I will end up doing is running as it's something I rather enjoy but I want to try and find other interesting sporty things as well so all suggestions welcome! Anyway here's what I suppose is basically my diary...
  3. When someone asks how I'm doing in February and March: Life is busy. Too busy for a formal challenge. I'm exhausted. Two jobs and the impending end of Crazy Work Season is really taking its toll. Four of the next six weeks will be spent trying to maintain as much sanity as possible (the last two, recovering). So, with that in mind here is my short and sweet "I just want to play with you guys" challenge. 1. Self care. Meditation, yoga, sleep, whatever I feel like I need to maintain sanity and manage my stress levels. 1a. Meditate daily. 1b. Workout at home when I can't get to the gym. I lift 3x weekly. If I can't get to the gym I lose motivation to workout. So, my ass needs to be in gear at home. 1c. Don't die. (back by popular demand) Low key, it is. But rest assured next challenge is going to be amazeballs.
  4. I try to work out 6 days a week. I'm new and I'm doing the Beginner's Body Weight Circuit one day, A little cardio + interval the next. I rest on Sundays. Today I'm really busy, and it isn't a rest day. I'm working all morning, jumping with an hour in between to go to night shift. Would it be ill advised to take a break today? I'm supposed to be doing some cardio/interval today. Should I squeeze in something in that hour, although I have to shower and change in that same time period. Or just wait til after my night shift?
  5. So I have this friend that has been working out and trying to get fit and I think I've almost convinced her to eat Paleo, or at least stick her toe in the water! She wants some easy yummy paleo recipes she can whip up for dinner because who wants to spend all night cooking dinner? I dunno about you guys but I'm hungry when I get home from work and I wanna eat! So I'm hoping you paleo's can give us some recipes that are tried tested and true to be both delicious and efficient (fast). I'm thinking the key to success might be cooking in advance and then it either being something that can be eaten cold or is a quick reheat, but don't limit the recipes to that! Thanks!!!
  6. Hey Everyone! I'm super new to Nerd Fitness - just came across the site yesterday! Fell in love with it immediately and decided the Rebellion found me just in time. Here's a little bit about myself. Make me your friend if anything in here jives with ya! Me and my chub: I've been overweight since I was 16. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after 8 months of significant weight gain and presumed I was doomed (insert pity party here). Even though I was a dancer, I ate like crap, which was re-inforced by my parents habits, and never lost weight, just slowly put more on. In college I was very active but my eating and newly added drinking habits did not help the situation. I peaked at 160 lbs, which is a LOT on my 5'2" frame. I entered graduate school determined to make a change. In 2009 I lost 23 lbs over 8 months, finally getting back into the upper end of the healthy range, and managed to keep it off for almost 2 years! I even ran a half-marathon. Then came 3rd year of med school. All the good eating habits and exercising went out the door in an attempt to survive the crazy hours and studying. I re-gained most of the weight I had lost AND I injured my ankle when I restarted running a year ago since I completely deconditioned over the 12 months. Now one year later, I'm 10 pounds above a healthy BMI, not completely recovered from my injury, still not eating well even though I know what I should be doing, still not back into a regular exercise regimen, and about to start my residency training in 3 weeks. FML. Nerd qualifications: So I'm not a traditional video-game playing nerd. Sorry . I've always seen the appeal but never got into it. BUT I have both a MD and a PhD, have seen every episode of TNG, have seen all the StarWars, love Firefly and MythBusters, have made model rockets for fun, have read a decent amount of sci fi novels, have been known to snort when excited... and so forth. Goals: Use the Rebellion to get on and stay on track during my residency training!Finally get down to a healthy weight and get chiseled so it's easier to maintain.Change my eating and exercise habits for good so I don't have to work to stay healthy, it just becomes the routine.Set an example for my patients. If I can do it working ~80 hrs/wk, anyone can. Well, maybe not a surgery resident or an associate in a high-end law firm but you get the idea.Embrace my inner Nerd and kick some a$$.~Sruthi
  7. Ok So I'm sure this has been asked before, but I did just look through this whole sub-board and did not find exactly what I'm looking for. I was wondering if anyone had some ideas for on-the-go paleo food. Not necisarily just snacks. Meal-level foods too. Anything that need no/ not a lot of refridgeration? I ask becuase I'm often, often, away from home. This includes out-of-town. And by out of town, I mean in the middle of nowhere, so paleo-friendly restaurant does not count as an option. I have been recently finding myself in a lot of situations where the only thing offered to me is pizza or pasta, and there is no way of getting anything else unless I have brought it with me. I was hoping there might be some lunchbox-friendly ideas, something I could pack for a weekend, that would last at least four hours before I got it in a fridge? I was thinking maybe salads in their separate components, but I think I will get sick of salads ALL THE TIME. Just wondering if anyone was in a simalar situation and had any tips for what works for them.
