  1. I was struggling to think of a theme for this challenge - in NF of yesteryear, I loved doing fun, fannish challenges, usually with complex spreadsheets and real-life roleplaying. Last challenge, I picked a theme that felt somewhat interesting, but it didn't really reflect my goals and I didn't feel like I engaged with it aside from the goal post. As I put my goals together this week, hemmed and hawed over theme options, thought about roadblocks from last challenge, I realized... maybe I don't need a "theme." Maybe this month is just about simplifying and streamlining. So that's where we are.
  2. This year, I'm doing a "one milestone per challenge" kind of relay-challenge. Challenge 1 was 5 push ups, challenge 2 was taking a 15km hike. I meant to also work on milestones for next challenges, but somehow I got severly ill in December, injured my hip a little in January and fell down and hurt my wrist just before last challenge. Last challenge I dropped everything that hurt my wrist, which lead to me just achieving my milestone goal of hiking 15km. Now that I've found a good hand therapist for my wrist, I can start making it stronger again. The volume of the physio exercises i
  3. As some people know here, I am a Bowler. This challenge, I have signed up for all the bowling. haha. First we start off with the USBC Open Nationals Tournament in Las Vegas, Nv. I fly out on Wednesday the 29th, and return home on the 1st of June. Thursday I bowl team event (3 games) then Friday will be double and singles. (6 games total). The day after I get back, I signed up to bowl a Match Club "fun" day event. On June 15th, I bowl in the California State Tournament. Team/Doubles/Singles all in one day (9 games). Then I have two different Match club bowling events on the 22nd and 23rd of Jun
  4. For those that don't know, each year I bowl in the USBC Open Nationals tournament. This year it is being held in Las Vegas. I bowl May 30th, and 31st. That will be in week one of the next challenge. So all kinds of chaos to prepare for then. I know a few people there that work the event each year, plus I have been bowling with a group of people for awhile now. This once a year thing is basically the only time I see them. This year, I want to make as big of a impact as possible. Last year I bowled in New York, I was 325 lbs. I am currently at 266 lbs. I still have plenty to lose. So I hope I ca
  5. Ok, back in full time for this challenge. I've been kind of floating these last few months. I've also been way overeating, which makes it hard to lose weight I have my Nationals bowling tournament coming up at the end of May. I want to see if I can drop a bit more weight and be in better shape to give everyone that shock and awe. A few of them I only see once a year. Plus, I have been in this rut now, and I need to get out of it. I need to get in some bowling practice too, so maybe this challenge, or next I will start it up. Goal#1: Food tracking and Intermittent fasti
  6. Spring is coming, the robins are singing for the first time all year, and I’m getting fired up after a long, cold, lazy winter. Throwing my lot in with you crew of Rangers if you’ll have me. I am staring down a big birthday in a few weeks and if I can’t be at my fittest by then, I can at least do what I can to be at my fiercest. So, getting my bully back this challenge! Big goals: Stronger, leaner, focused-er. Challenge goals: Fitness: 2 weights sessions each week 3 yoga sessions each week 3 Couch to 5K sessions each week Food: Track
  7. 2018 saw the return to the Nerdfitness Challenges for me. I went full Keto, with only a couple of times leaving it. While I participated in each challenge, they were far from perfect. Still, I made progress.I dropped over 100 lbs last year. I tied my lowest recorded weight of 257.6 lbs, with a couple of more days to get even further down before the official start to 2019! I've been thinking of what I want for goals for this coming year. Last year really was about me getting back into a healthier lifestyle, and trying to drop all the weight I could. I still have plenty of weight le
  8. 2018 marks the year that I came back. I came back to the NerdFitness challenges, and I came back to be a much healthier version of myself. My biggest failure, was to gain all my weight back so fast. October 7th, 2014 I was 257.3 lbs (my lightest). September 21st, 2015 I was 385.2 lbs. 127.9 lbs gained in less then a year's time. I floundered over the next 2 1/2 years or so, only getting to 367.6 lbs at the beginning of 2018. My Day 1 back at it. I wanted this to me my defining year. The year to help erase that horrible failure of a year. So far, I am doing it. I haven't
  9. Good afternoon to all my fellow beginners! I made a stab at NF a year or so ago and allowed life to get in my way, so here I am again making another go at it with Challenge number one of 2018. I'm already facing a few personal challenges outside of the norm (work/kids/husband/etc). I have fibromyalgia, am dealing with an injured hand that is keeping me out of the weight room and in physical therapy, and have spent the latter half of 2017 and into this new year dealing with some sort of chronic hives issue - yippee So here I am again making another go at it, despite the adverse conditions,
  10. Hey, I'm Jigme (jik-mei)! I'm a zen archer. Pretty much every Sunday for the last four years, I've put on a funny-looking skirt and shot an extra large, unbalanced bow in the general direction of a target. I would like to keep doing that until I'm about 120; then, I'll probably take it easy and go every other Sunday. Nah, just kidding. I'm probably going to do that more often. Now, it would make sense for an archer looking to improve to work on back and shoulder muscles, but that's not what I'm going with this time around. The thing is, I've been dealing with this pesky littl
  11. Hello! I'm Severine. I've been here for just over a year. I've had both successes and failures, and lately I've started to feel like they're cancelling each other out and the result is stagnation. It's why I took last challenge off and just did a battle log instead: I was messing up most of the challenges in a repeating pattern, stuck in a rut. I'm basically working on all the same fitness/health stuff I was working on last year. I don't like it and it's frustrating. And let me be honest: the problem is not lack of knowledge. The problem is not lack of time or equipment. The problem is follow-
  12. So, I skipped last month because I was starting to burn out on tracking ALL THE THINGS. So I tracked mostly none of the things (kept up with weight lifting tracking tho), and now I'm a little more refreshed after vacation (and a little over sugared tbh, 'cause birfday). And now I want to solidify some progress! Fun stuff this month: - I'm doing Aerial Silks for the first time on the 22nd! I'M SO EXCITED - PixelPop festival is at the end of the challenge. I don't have a booth this time, I'm going to go JUST to go! Fitness So, when I started at the Acad
  13. My daughter just turned 7 months last weekend, The fact that I now have a child should no longer be an excuse not to take care of myself so here I am, feeling like I'm starting back at ground zero but I have a plan!! Run a 5k (I have promised myself new running shoes once I can run a 5k with no breaks) -Continue the C25K Program - Run 2-3 times a week Eat Healthier (I'm back at work, and once I get off I want to snuggle my baby and not cook so fast food has becoming an option waaay to often) -Eat out fewer than 2x a week -Only have soda while out Do a Pull U
  14. Another four weeks another challenge. Hi there, I'm Korranation! Long time lurker and fellow rebel Adventurer. I recently degree in higher learning, and like most graduates, I didn't get a job straight out of college. I'm here to level up into the world of adulting. And I like my challenges like I like my life... filled with relatable memes, funny gif, and bad puns. I've been laxing in my routine so I need to kick things up a notch. I'm here to go from this to this... Quest 1: Exercise Run in the morning/even
  15. 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
  16. Another challenge, another chance to conquer. Let's do this! I'm super stoked for this challenge! I'll be doing a five-week challenge this time around, but I will be evaluating me quests on a week by week basis and edit, change, swap, or remove any quests as necessary MAIN QUEST Land a new job and get fit doing it WEEK 0 QUESTS QUEST ONE: badland training (WEEK 0) alternate between strength training and running in the mornings and do x4 per week (I'll be using the superhero app from six to start for
  17. For my first challenge, I choose running! Dum, dum, DUUMMMM!!!! All my life I have never been good at running. When I was 15 years old I was selected to run in the Queen's Baton Relay in the lead up to the 2006 Commonwealth Games (CG equivalent of the Olympic Torch relay) and I nearly said no because I was so scared I would look like a fool running 500m. Thankfully I had mentors that reinforced to me that this was an opportunity not to be missed and I did do the run, but I was SUPER self conscious the whole time. Fast forward to 23 year old me who starts with Nerd Fitne
  18. This challenge is divided into five categories: Mind, Fuel, Training, Home, and Spark. Each day I'll get a percentage grade in each category, along with a daily percentage and rank. I'll also get a weekly percentage and rank. And of course at the end I'll get my challenge percentage and rank. I use a spreadsheet to track all of this. Mind This category covers mindfulness, and well as scheduling. I want to practice mindfulness with eating, posture, and just in general really. As for scheduling, this covers things like workouts and writing sessions. I do better at these when I s
  19. Tiggs86PreppingforPOW Hello All I have been absent from the challenges for quite some time for personal reasons and am in need of a respawn. I believe my previous challenge I had mentioned preparing for a camping trip to celebrate my 30th Birthday. Well in August I, my sister, and three of our friends went to Northern Minnesota and spent a week camping and hiking. Over 30miles and 1500 stairs in 5 days! Here's a photo album: http://s868.photobucket.com/user/Tiggs86/library/30th trip As the Starks say: . Winter is my favorite time of year because that means snow whi
  20. Here we are at yet another challenge. I was going to keep on using the Pokemon theme, but decided to switch it up for Stranger Things The series was so good, I watched it all in one day. haha. I hope during this challenge, that I build up on some good habits. This will lead to goals next challenge, and well into the future. If you have watched Stranger Things, you know that you don't want to stay in the Upside Down Goal 1: So this goal is to workout 3 times each week. I've done it 4 weeks in a row now, so this challenge should really lock it in for me.
  21. First off, the tactical bit in the titles refer to the Tactical Barbell books not and specific tactical training at this time. I’ve been doing some thinking over the past few weeks and decided that I’m not finished with the military. I finished my contract, deployed twice, and done what I needed to do; but I feel like there is more. I discharged 4 years ago and since that time I have put on around 70-80lbs and lost nearly all my endurance. Since April I’ve been back in the gym consistently doing Wendler’s 5/3/1 and then later a template out of Beyond 5/3/1. These 5 months have h
  22. Hey everyone I'm here with more questions....I hope that's okay. I am doing the C25K where you run 3 times a week. I'm wondering about strength training for the other 2-3 days. Should I focus on just one or can I do both throughout the week? -What all does strength training involve, or what should it involve weights wise? -What kind of workouts do I do as a beginner? I know there are "back days" and "leg days" and such but how do I cycle through those? -Can I build muscle at home? Without going to the gym? if I am dedicated enough? -If the answer is ye
  23. After a couple years of spinning in circles, I need to "respawn" again. I will focus on getting my diet in line, and now that the hot local summer is sliding away, I will spend more time walking and running outside. Mission: Run in the Cotton Row Run 10K in May 2017 in a better time than I did it the last time in 2012 (54:50). While I rebuild my running habit, in the short term I need to start eating to train. I read a blog post a few years ago that really stuck with me as a way to measure how well my diet was dialed in. It seems that author is not as active online
