  1. I am Odinson_Rising, and my hammer lies on the ground. I want nothing more than to lift it, but I can’t. I am no longer worthy. That is the bad news. The good news is that this represents not failure, but the opportunity for success. The broken habits and missed opportunities that have contributed to my current condition are nothing more than obstacles in my path, placed not to slow or stop me, but rather to provide me with challenges to overcome. The newest obstacles in my path take the form of organizational deficiencies. I will combat these deficiencies with “Mise En Place.” Mise En Place i
  2. Okay! I am still not entirely sure this is correct, but I'll try it out, and let me know if I am missing something... (I already just posted this in the wrong spot so.... off to a brilliant start <3) I am doing the 4 week challenge for Rebels... (though I am pretty sure after this I'll throw in with the Assassin's lot, but I'm a newbie still, so we'll see.) Diet, yo! I actually eat fairly healthy already, but for the next four weeks I am going to try to drink 3 litres of water a day at least 5 days a week. To help with this, I've installed a little hydra
  3. With this challenge, I want to continue working toward some goals and improve or build some good habits, but also have some flexibility, since my sister will be visiting for about 10 days and that will throw some things off—for example, I have no intention of limiting sugar intake or eating out during that time. Extra-super thanks to Sylvaa for her suggestions for my Food and Life goals! Food 1. Keep a daily food log. I normally really hate logging my food, since I find it quickly makes me obsessed (and somewhat guilty) over my choices. But
  4. I am all over the place. I have been fighting with anxiety for the first time in my life and it is quite a thing to battle. My challenge for the month is multifaceted as I know my current short comings are from all angles and if I don't address them in some way, I am going to feel like I missed my mark. This can lead to overloading myself, which I am aware, but hopefully I can structure things well enough that I can find success. I found this picture last night and it described both my strengths and weaknesses all in one. I know what I am capable of, and at times that is q
  5. We all know that a true Warrior never lets a fellow Warrior skip leg day. But lets be honest beach body season is closing in and we worked on da wheelz last time with the 50/50 Squat challenge. So as your Guild Leaders we are encouraging you to embrace your inner bro and remember every day is upper body day. The challenge will target two of the biggest muscle groups that'll help you fill out that summer time tank or deep v tee. You're going to need two barbells, as you'll be super setting different movements with different weights, and a watch or your phone because its going to be
  6. Hello. It's me..... Okay, enough with Adele (though I am obsessed with that song). It's time for round two (seeing as round one did not go to plan.....at all!). But rather than wallowing in my chasm of doom (it has a nice ring to it), it's time to look forward and learn from the past. My biggest set back from my last challenge was organisation. Simple put: I had none! And I still don't have any, considering today was the official first day of the challenge and I missed it completely. So my challenges are:
  7. I am back! This is perfect timing for this 4 week challenge - I want to go on my vacation feeling like I accomplished something! I am healing nicely from the shoulder injury, my ankle is wonky, but I've got a nice brace for it, and no more scarlet fever! I dogsat all this week for a friend, so I have been off my routine. (workouts, sleep AND food!) I am done as of Friday, and trying a new class (Barre Above) so in this next challenge I'll be incorporating a new workout! Here we go....! Main Quest: 1- walk at break at least 4 days per workweek 2- go to t
  8. Well, there is no pride in hiding. I've tried challenges before, but never really followed through. I'm here to give it another shot. This was my last challenge... Sad to say, much of my weight is still the same, maybe slightly worse, but I'm not looking at the scale anymore. Just putting in the work. I've moved across the world, seen some really cool things and I'm ready to give it another shot. Not looking at the scale right now, it's a bit discouraging and the fluctuations make me paranoid. GOALS! Main Quest: Lose weight and fit in

    Hello, everyone. First of all, please forgive my english. It is not my first language. My introductions tend to be long winded, so I will spare you from that (mostly). I am an 25 year old active woman who had to take a 3 week break from exercising because I learned I have this condition called chondromalacia patellae (knee pain, really). The treatment involved knee injections and a bit of rest, but my paranoid side figured it would be better if I stopped doing all manner of extrenous and impact heavy activities (I do Crossfit, so..) for those three weeks. Anyway, the pa
  10. I'm really excited for this challenge! I'm not starting until next week (April 4), but I've decided what my challenge is and I want to get it posted right now so I'm all ready to go! [Side Note: I had originally titled this post "In Which Gryffinkat Tries Hard Things." But then I thought of Master Yoda and changed the title accordingly. ] Food 1. Eat Fatty Fish 1x /Week. I have really never cared for fatty fish. But I do believe it's an important component of a truly healthy diet. So this month I am going to dig deep and try fatty fish, just once each we

    Trying again

    Hi all I know I am a week late to this challenge but I thought better late and starting today than waiting 3 weeks. i have previously posted in monk and warrior forums but due to a few injuries I have had to make some changes to my training and haven't really found my groove again. So I'm here as a rebel to rebuild and seek some support and acccountability. in 2014 I got my black belt in Soo Bahk Do but have recently found I have a hip problem which led to taking a long-term break from any kicking based martial arts. I hit 215kg deadlift earlier
  12. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a routine I can do in the morning? It takes me about 20 mins to get to work. I usually wake up 40 mins before leaving to give me time to shower and prepare. What can I do that will take maybe 30 mins at most when I wake up in the morning? Things I was thinking of: Yoga - I have no idea how to do it. I'd like to though, I've been wanting to improve my flexibility. Walk outside - walking is about as far as I go. I HATE running! If a zombie apocalypse happened, I'd let them eat me. Push ups/ab stuff - I like this idea too. I
  13. Brothern and SwoleMaidens, It is time to focus on a body part that a lot of us neglect. We even go as far as justifying the neglect with weak excuses like: "I do abs when I squat" or "All of my lifts work abs," or my favorite... "abs are made in the kitchen." This sounds like Broki weaving his web of lies to entice you to never meet your potential. Let me tell you a story about the time I helped an above average lifter become extraordinary. Let’s call him “C.” “C” was strong as a train, but it just wasn’t good enough. I asked him what kind of training he did, but a
  14. Hey guys, so i realise i'm late to this challenge, but i thought it would be better for me to start now rather than wait for the next one to start! For each of these, i've tried to tie them in with my Epic Quest Page. I mean, why not give myself double the chance to level up! (Important note, these Epic quests are also SMALL to start progressing and prove to myself i can win!) My EPIC QUEST PAGE: https://www.nerdfitness.com/character/86180/ Diet 1) Substitute one sugary coffee drink per day for a glass of water. 2) Eat breakfast each day. (Bonus if healt
  15. *waves* Hey y'all! Veyva here and this is my first challenge. I'm really trying to create some good habits and routines to get through my day, feel better physically and manage my time. I'm a busy girl who does ALL THE THINGS but I need to get more organized. Especially with organizing my time. As its my first challenge, I'd like to start pretty simple. Here goes: DIET -Drink 64 oz of water at work a day. I'm TERRIBLE about drinking water so I need to get my hydration on. -Eat a salad 3x a week. I need more leafy greens in my diet
  16. Hi All, I'm Ben Smash. I got that name in my drinking days since I'm a big dude and fairly uncoordinated. Things would break in my presence. Since then, I'm come to wear it as a badge of honor. I'm big and (was) strong and typically face challenges head-on, taking action and kicking ass, my own way. It's been many many years since that was the case. I've become sedentary, unmotivated, apathetic and soggy. Recently, I was hospitalized for a rather grisly Gastrointestinal problem and learned some very scary stuff about myself. It's finally time to change. I'm tired of hating myself. I want to
  17. Greetings to all of you! I am Lunael and I set out on my path to live a life closer to nature. I want to roam the forests, climb trees and learn about all sorts of animals and plants. I want to explore the wilderness, quick with my feet and quick with my bow. First of all, I want to get my diet in order, freeing myself from emotional eating, sugar addiction and guilt feelings. I want to increase my fitness, but slowly this time, and start to do archery again. Thus, I began my first official challenge this year at 5th of February and those are the rules CHALLENGE GOAL: Reduce BF-percent
  18. Bro's and SwoleMaidens, "Let not the gains of your heart diminish the gains from your mind for the path of iron is long and full of hardship" Book of Liftviticus ch23, v13 Our cardio workouts aren't done. This time you won't be able to stand there and rest, so get your spotter. We are benching and benching a lot. Rules are continuous touch and go benches. You can only rest in the up position and not rerack the bar. Spotter help = end of your lift. You have to the end of this current challenge period to complete this challenge. Easy/normal mode The standard challenge will be
  19. There has been an awakening... OK, so the goals have changed a bit, but that was still fun to make This year, I'm taking on my biggest challenge since joining the Rebellion....becoming a Jedi Knight. To do this, I'll need to complete the 5 Trials of Knighthood. Trial of Skill The Trial of Skill is a chance for the Jedi to prove that he has mastered a particular skill or set of skills. Typically this would be some form of lighstaber combat, though other areas were allowed as well. For my skill trial, I've decided to strive for a one-handed handstand: For this challenge, I'm
  20. The last challenge I started over. I decided to take the first steps down the dark and scary path toward being fit. I aim to continue that journey this challenge and hopefully pick up the pace a bit. I have been fairly successful at keeping my arch nemesis the peanut butter ninja at bay but he still creeps past my defenses every once in a while and strikes. This challenge I am going to focus on keeping my calories in check, beating the peanut butter ninja, and getting to the gym while following my selected lifting program. Current Stats: Sex: Male Age: 35 Height: 5’10†Weight: 247.2 lbs. St
  21. Good evening guys, I'm BioGuyJos and this is a very quick draft of how my story here starts... I always wanted to feel faster and lighter with my body, I used to weight around 120 kilograms way back in 2011. I managed to exercise myself starting from summer vacation time in 2011 up to summer vacation time in 2012. I lost around 50 kilograms, weighting 70 kilograms before summer in 2012. In that time I was a high schooler, I felt better with myself and people started to treat me in a different way. It was pretty awesome. I got graduated and I started college. I did not
  22. Better late than never. I missed week 1, but hopefully I can still meet these goals by the end. A little bit about me, Jeff, before I dive into my Level Up character. I am 26, just out of law school and a recent new-resident of Manhattan. Fan of Star Wars, comics (Marvel+Batman), TMNT, video games, and all things nerdy. Also big NBA and NFL fanatic. I work long hours at a firm here in the city, but try to find time (usually in the mornings) to stay active and mentally sane. My wife and I food prep every week to save money and eat healthy. We are both running the SPARTAN TRIFECTA this year in
  23. I've started more times than I care to count. Last time I failed so miserably, that I gave up and stopped logging onto this site all together for about a month. I came upon this phrase "failing means yer playin'". As you probably figured, it means that it's better to be doing badly than to not be taking part at all. OK. This is a valid point. So here I am, playing again. I intend not to fail again, however! Of course I am coming in a week into the 4 week challenge (I hope this is OK). Main Goals: 1 – Walk at break at least 4 days per weekday 2 – Do cardio at least 3 times pe
  24. Well Well.. I can't believe I remember checking the forums.. only to find that I was on date for the new challenge! Jcmgm here! I can't think of a better class to fit my career, biologist, and my passions, surf, skiing and photography Summer's almost over! Here in Mar del Plata, the beach season has come and gone. Now it's time to get serious. Since my last challenge last year, I've managed to stay active and take care of my self sooo Goal One: Cook, cook, cook everyday! Goal Two: Vegetables everyday! Goal Three: Walk everyday. In addition to my crossfit (2x week) and yoga classes
