  1. Zaelir was born at the end of the War of Souls in the tiny town of Solace. As dragons had burned down most of the town by the time she arrived, her parents were in empty company, but they stayed to provide shelter to travelers and soldiers alike. It is said that the remaining Heroes of the Lance gathered in Solace one last time before their deaths, but Zaelir remembers none of it. Stories are all she's ever known. The only battles she has ever fought are against the dust and ash of the old inn, though many nights she snuck out after her chores to climb through the great Vallenwood trees and pr
  2. I deliberately took last week off from the challenges, as I hadn't had time yet to work out what I wanted to do. But after briefly considering just taking off the whole month, I decided I'd rather join late and continue pushing myself. Food 1. No more than 2 sweets per day. Sugary drinks (sodas, juices, etc.) count as a sweet. Chocolates, gummies, cakes, biscuits, cookies ... the list goes on and on! Sugar is definitely my downfall, and I want to make some real progress in cutting down on it. 2 PTS per day * 18 days = 36 possible PTS 2. Eat 1 veg with every meal. That's right! Every single
  3. Rebel's log Challenge Date: 2/7/16 Today was a miracle. I was supposed to get together w/a cousin at a fast food place today. We set this meeting up a week ago. I went through the whole week thinking i was going to go over my allowed quota but this morning she called to cancel. A blessing in disguise i suppose. But went through a litany of emotions afterwards. Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is more powerful than i thought. I took a fellow rebel's advice and just had a glass of water to take the edge off. Seemed to help. Another fellow rebel, Fleaball made me realize, i may be failin
  4. For this challenge, I am doing the following: Diet 1. No more than 2x eating out in a week. This is kind of an odd one, because I'm counting what I don't do instead of what I do. But I've been eating out lots lately, and even though I've been working on making better choices with that, it's still not the healthiest and definitely not the cheapest option. I'll especially need to work on bringing a lunch with me to work. 2. Eat 2 veg every day. Fruits still don't count yet, but I'm working my way up to be able to do "5 a day," maybe next month. Fitness 3. Play tennis an hour every week. Li
  5. Ok. Last challenge didn't go as planned. But hey, new month. Take 2! Rebel's Log Challenge Date: 3/1/16 New Day! Day 1 of new 4 week challenge.

  6. And when they ask you if you are ready for battle what will you say? Is it i carried a table around town last night humming the ninja turtles theme music? No? that's just me then it's not quite as strange as it sounds i had to get a small table back to my house and in line with my new Nerd Fitness anti-fragile strategy i thought i would carry it rather than put it in a taxi. I need to get fit again, the last year has been really difficult at work and I stopped exercising and eating well. I've been a member of nerd fitness for more than 180 days and i didn't make any progress to start
  7. Hello, ranger folk. Since this is my first challenge ever in the big league (out of the Rebels Guild, I mean), I will bother you guys with a brief introduction. My name is Miss Kitty Fantastico and I will be joining you guys for the next few challenges (yey!). I am a 25 year old woman from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who works a desk job as a ecommerce and marketing manager of a retailer of women's clothing. "I enjoy moonlit nights, taking long walks on the beach, unicorns, and knitting. In fact, I once took a seaside stroll on a moonlit night, and discovered a unicorn...which I proceeded to stab
  8. My Second 6 Week challenge-I hope its OK but I feel like I should still post here, as I wasn’t in any guild when I tried my first 6 week challenge, and 2-I really still feel like I am starting out! I am going to keep a lot of my missions the same, as I still have a ways to go – I had a few obstacles during the last one, including minor surgery and preparing for my brother’s wedding. Now things should by fairly normal (minus the follow up procedures for my surgery) Main quest: To lose weight and build muscle – I want to try and lose between 10-15 lbs this quest. Last time
  9. Hello again Warrior friends! And for those who are new, welcome to the rebellion! Pretty much fell off the wagon during the last few months of 2015, because growing tiny humans is exhausting. I'm now in the home stretch of this pregnancy thing, so my challenge will center around that. I'm due Feb 11th, so this will likely be my last challenge as a non-parent type person. Quit the sugar highs! As advised by my midwife, and now that the holidays are over, it's best for me to give up sugar as much as possible. Baby will be here soon, and if they are super used to high sugar levels, they
  10. What? Two challenges in a row? Jeez. I realize I didn't do a lot of updating over the last challenge, and really no visiting of anyone else's threads. For me, NF is a very all-or-nothing thing. I used to spend all day on here, updating, reading, encouraging, playing in chat, etc. And then it got to be too much (well, Mr Mir felt it was too much because I wasn't spending any time with him). So, in my way of doing things, the NF switch got flipped to Off. I'm still not sure what an appropriate amount of time looks like. I miss interacting with nerds; I miss talking to the people that have enco
  11. Rebel's log Challenge Date: 2/1/16 Day 1 of this new challenge and its 3:40am. Must sleep first before embarking on day 1. But this is how this challenge will go: LEVEL 1 REBEL CHALLENGE: Diet Consume soda and fast food only 3 times a weekConsume 64 oz or more of water per dayFitness (pick one) Complete Exercise Starter's Exercise PlanComplete LG step and calorie goal 5 days a week (by whatever means necessary) Level Up Your Life Get 1 debt paidDraw everyday for this month (29 days) i hope i can make it. For now, sleep. Will report later
  12. Hello, Although it is not the first challenge I take part, I decided to reset and start at beginner's level again. What am I aiming for? Health, fitness, a fulfilling social life and financial independence. Since I am a little late, I will step in the current challenge with the following quests: 1) Health/diet: Drink alcohol at most once a week respectively not more than four times during the challenge. (goal: < 4) I am still on track at this goal. No alcohol this week so far. 2) Health/fitness: Stretch at least three times a week for at least ten minutes. (goal: 12/120 min) Here
  13. I'm a relative noob to NF. Last spring/summer I joined the Academy and was making some good progress, but dropped off toward the end of the summer/early fall. Now I'm excited to start the year by getting back into the battle and training for greater combat! Diet 1. Eat at least one vegetable every day. 2. Cook 2+ meals every week. Fitness 3. Walk 10+ minutes every day. 4. Play tennis Go for a run every week. Level Up Your Life 5. Meditate 5+ minutes 3+ days a week. Each challenge is worth 5XP for a complete week. So it's 25XP each week when all 5 challenges are met, for a total of 10
  14. So umm.....hi. Let me explain....no, is too much. Let me sum up: I'm just coming out of the worst year of my life, complete with mental breakdown and taking a medical leave of absence from work, almost getting divorced, and all that good stuff. I've taken a LONG break from NF, for lots of reasons, but I miss my nerds TERRIBLY and I've decided it's time to come back. Plus, I'm trying something different this time. I've spent most of my adult life feeling like a failure, a fuckup, a worthless piece of sludge. I suffer from depression and ADHD, and so things that are simple for others are n
  15. Druids, how was your January? Pull up a cushion, grab a mug of tea, and tell us how the challenge went. What were your successes? What caused stumbles? What surprises did you find along the way? And of course, please share your insights. What did you learn? Will you be carrying pieces from January into February's challenge? Will you be with the Druids next round or will you visit a different guild, and why? Feel free to link to your February challenge in your reply.
  16. OK, deep breath, this is my very first challenge. I've been thinking about good first quests as I leave the starting area (maybe not kill wolves and troggs for random stuff they carry) and its all gotten rolled up with my thoughts on new years. My main goals for the entire year are to get healthier- meaning lose fat and getting stronger. That will involve losing weight,but I don't have a solid number in mind. I also want more direction in my career. When I started strength training in early November,one of the things I noticed is that training sessions required my full attention. I could
  17. After the failure of last challenge I've fallen far. My fitness has taken a serious hit. I haven't ad an honest workout in over a month and I can tell it. I feel weak. I feel slow. My endurance has almost completely vanished. But that ain't wat this challenge is about, this challenge is about getting to the root of the problem, about tearing it up and burning it. GOAL ONE Got to start off with something physical. And it's just that, something physical. My goal hear is to get back on track, to start training again. Really this challenge is more about getting my body used to working, to prepare
  18. fitness goals Follow Darebee's 30 days of gravity workout. This will go 2 days over the 4-week duration of the challenge. I'll start today so the finish day will coincide with the end of the NF challenge. I'm looking forward to this. I've incorporated some Darebee exercises in my routines for the last few months but this will be the first time I've followed one of the programs. Drink at least 64oz water daily Weigh myself at least weekly My last challenge I focused on strength training and as something of an experiment I made a conscious effort to not weigh myself at all. I really increased m
  19. Hello! I am new to this whole site in general. I started Paleo's 30 day detox/reset on January 1 and was searching the web for an online community to be a part of to keep myself motivated and found you guys! I am deciding to join the challenge to meet new people with similar goals and keep myself motivated to better myself for 2016. A little about me, I am a third grade teacher in Orlando, FL. I am currently finishing up my Master's degree at UCF. I have been in a committed relationship for over a year now and he too is a teacher but for second grade and also finishing up his Master's in the
  20. Walking into the domed training area, Terror lifted the visor on her helmet and glanced around. 19 females of all shapes and sizes stood waiting in readiness. Their eyes showed determination and strength - and Terror had no idea why she or these women were here. None spoke, only looked amongst themselves and the unfamiliar space. Some seemed alert and wary, whilst others seemed as if being in this space was their birthright. "You have been chosen", a deep voice cut through the tense silence. A short but muscular man stepped from the shadows, each stride forward purposeful. Terror felt there
  21. Hi there! I met my husband in a video game 10 years ago and a thousand miles apart, and we're happily married with a son who loves gaming as much as we do. I'm also a book nerd and enjoy reading and writing fantasy fiction. I'm not big on TV; there are a few series I'll DVR and watch regularly, but I prefer to do more mentally engaging things. IRL, I work from home producing podcasts for successful online entrepreneurs. I make a respectable income and LOVE what I do. (I heard about NerdFitness when I edited an interview Steve did with one of my clients! Already pre-ordered the book.) Li
  22. Hey. Are there any aussies doing the anytime fitness challenge beginning next week or the week after? I am doing it and just wondered if there was anyone else out there doing it?? Be good to follow each others progress.
  23. The Great Sisyphus Challenge of Valyria Watersinger as told by DrCompanion Chapter 43 Never Give Up, Never Surrender Valyria stared into the dirty mirror, forcing her eyes into objective focus. The hideousness of the sight glared back at her in defiance and pain; every curve, every lump screaming at her to look away. It had only been a few short years ago since its last race, its last lift, and it knew it all too well. The void of sadness left behind had long since burned away, leaving only jagged clumps of regret in its place. “Yes, the medical issues could be considered a rea

  25. Druid January CHALLENGE: My goals steam from the want to distress with yoga and focus my energy in positive ways.
