  1. Since getting my Master's last August, I have found a solid routine. I lift weights three days a week, do cardio/PT three days a week, and do 10 minutes of Kenpo Karate practice in the morning. My food intake is reasonably consistent and balanced, and I can see slow but steady changes in my body. Naturally, I'm going to throw a wrench in all that. Setup: I've stayed in touch with my school, and one of the electives I wanted to take is being offered this summer, so I enrolled in it, just for funsies. While it's not quite as serious, being not for a degree, the final
  2. Don't you just love that movie? It is so relatable: we all have different voices arguing inside our head. This challenge I'm going to change from the inside out, listen to the voices and find my own voice. This challenge I'm not going to change on the outside: no strict food rules, no changing my environment to fit my goals. Because that stuff doesn't change my relationship with food, it doesn't change my brain. So, what am I going to do this time? I've talked about Life on Tellus before here. And I still love this approach. The theory is that you've got a lower brain, she ca
  3. Greetings and Salutations! Try one was fail, as I put it in a past challenge. Sigh. You'd think I'd have this interneting thing figured out, but no, away I went! Unafraid, necroposting like a champ! Mea Culpa! Back on topic. I have decided to wander over here from the Assassins area to try some change. Now, I am very, very adverse to change overall. Lots of good reasons, personal and even more so professional, but I need to get more comfortable with change again. In the bigger picture, I need to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. My
  4. GREETINGS REBELLION!!I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself. It
  5. I'm fairly certain that I ended up here at this respawn point, because I stumbled into a PVP area and was shanked in the back by an Imperial Operative. So while I sit here and let the medical droid tend to my wounds, let me consider how I got in this mess in the first place. I think it's important to acknowledge what went wrong without fear of being told you're just making excuses or complaining. The fact is, the situation is what it is and now that we're here it's time to dust off and get ready to move forward. So let's start where it all started getting derailed...

    Shaeon Focuses

    Sleeping got much better with my last challenge, and now I want to work on things that bring focus to my life. I have a terrible tendency to flail around, wondering what I should do. I've been working on taking care of the basics, and doing so has made me more centered. I've also recently had a breakthrough on some things I am the most indecisive about, and I want to work to encourage myself to stick to this path (yes, I'm being terribly vague. I'm not quite ready to discuss it yet). So this challenge, I'm working on turning off all the noise and getting focused. So for this chall
  7. All right, all right, new year, fresh start! I actually don't need a fresh start from the perspective of "I've fallen off the wagon and need to start again", but more like "Time to look back at what I've done and where I can make improvements." But I don't believe a 'fresh continuation' is a thing, so... To catch everyone up, I'm a skinny guy who wants to build muscle. I was inspired by one of Steve's articles last summer to pick a routine and stick with it - for months, not weeks! I modified Anthony Mychal's 242 Method to include 6 "marriage" lifts that are performed on 2 days a week an
  8. Gimeniux's: How do you mend a broken heart? Why am i here? I feel lost, once more, totally lost. I'm starting once more. I did great two challenges ago, last one not so great, actually a total failure. But here i am, because i promised i would not give up. I am here, because i need to take care of me. I'm battling depression, i just broke up with my boyfriend. I need to love myself, i come to realize this is the only way i'll be truly happy. So here i am, trying once more. Thank you in advance to those who decide to come along with me in this journey. My heart is broken you see, not just be
  9. Hi NF'ers I have just started actively following a fitness plan and tonight is my first evening shift at work this week; I was wondering if there were others out there like me who have a varied schedule, and I was curious as to what you do / eat / drink to keep yourself energised and feeling well without succumbing to copious amounts of caffiene and sugar (two of my biggest downfalls!) What kind of meals should I eat to keep myself energized, or is a quick afternoon nap more the way to go? Or do I just continue my daily routine (breakfast, lunch, workout, dinner) as per usual and just "suc
  10. Thought I'd post something in here by means of introduction (duh). Just spent ages writing the first post of my Daily Battle Log thread, so I'm just going to recycle it here as an intro. Sorry if that's too annoyingly lazy. Bises x The Situation Two years ago I started a Daily Battle Log and didn't follow it up with a single update. Not one. Obviously, that didn't go quite as planned. No point dwelling on the past though, because two years ago is not today, and today I'm ready to commit to change. The past two years have been full of positive change: I finished school, got
  11. Hello everyone!! Well here I am, to tell you guys I went to a Nutritionist She was very well recommended. Based on what we talked, health history from my family (not many problems, thankfully), and all, she ended up making this routine for me. I would like you guys to see it and tell what you thinks about it. At the end of the post I will write more about myself (physical description, old habits...), maybe it will help. I have already started this diet (I learn from many errors in the past that I shouldn't wait forever to make some changes ^^ ). So... here we go! : Breakfast: Option 1:
  12. Hello Nerds! Welcome! Thank you for reading my post (apologies for any stupid autocorrelation touch type errors!) I'm from the UK, 23 and currently at a turning point towards the end of Uni. Obviously, I'm a nerd too, Huge fan of Indiana Jones and love adventure and some science-fiction movies (blade runner, minority report, star wars, the usual). Like a lot of Nerds, I like videogames too (classic SEGA, fighting games, adventure games like monkey island). Very much into educational/documentary stuff too, and enjoy design, industry, manufacturing and society, cultures and history. I
  13. Hey Nerds!

  14. Towards the end of the last challenge, I had some Vocational Testing done, to see what my personality and aptitudes and interests would make a good career fit for me and the results were...well...not what I expected entirely. I started out 3 weeks ago, admitted to Grad school for Social Work, starting 3 weeks from now, but now that's entirely off the table and I am going in a whole new direction, because while I may LOVE Social Work in theory, I am not a very socially intelligent person, which is a death knell in a position like that, and I realized that I would be doing every one of my clie
  15. I sat out the last challenge. It seemed like one more thing to do and I was at my limit. I needed the down time. But I also realized that all my goals were about big things, or aspects of big things. I am not saying I don't need to focus on those, there are lots of big things an Ogre needs to focus on. However, there are little things that can make an important difference. Here is what is going on in the Ogre land of Brute Squad for those who may have just joined us. Our hero, an Ogre of grand scale, works full time with regular over time repairing and maintaining medical imaging equipme
  16. First of all, Hello! I can't wait to get started working with the Rebellion! I have been slowly making changes to my life over the past few years (meeting goals!)! I finished college (at 34 years old!), changed career paths, and had my second son! All great things, but I thought that my life was becoming chaotic; no time for myself...then I realized I was the problem. After having 3 back surgeries (all before age 30), I was at my highest weight (300 lbs). I used that as an excuse to not get off the sofa, not move around, and that caused more damage. I lost flexibility, lost muscle, and
  17. In the words of Obama, I want change. All my life I've been waaaaayy overweight, but now it's time to take a stand. I'm tired of feeling clumsy because of my bodyweight (im 15 and 20kgs over) and I'm tired of finding myself regretting eating a bag of crisps. So, after finding nerd fitness, I've decide that 2014 will be the year that I achieve my (hopefully easy to achieve) goals. But as I've found from numerous amount of times in the past, I can't do this alone, and i am weak in the face of cake and pizza. So I've joined the forums for help and support from local rebels. 2014 should be a g
  18. I was tossed as to if I wanted to start another challenge. My last one fell apart in the last week, and the efforts I made towards the goals seemed non-committal. I'm trying to change too much at the same time and I'm failing. And I hate failing in front of others. I'm perfectly cool failing on my own, learning from my own secret mistakes and determining to do it right/get better/learn... but all under the cover of secrecy. Having the world see my struggle is very difficult for me. I want to be strong. I need to be strong... and when I end up showing weakness and failure, I feel vulnerable and
  19. How's it going people? Im an 18 (150 pound) year old high school senior, who is ready to change his life. For the past few months, i've been going through the same routine: Get up, go to school, come home. get on the computer, go to sleep. The funny thing is, that I have been doing weghttraining since last month, but I haven't been puting max effort, in both the gym and my diet. I could push for one last rep, but I never do, or I could eat another meal, but I say it doesn't matter. Since i've been skinny all my life, I always make excuses like, "Oh I just have bad genetics" or "I'm just not ma
  20. 1. Main quest: To be quick and strong like an assassin 1.1 Specific quests: - Do the beginner bodyweight workout at least 3 times a week. - Run in intervals for at least 20 min. at least 2 times a week - Get 8 hours of sleep every night 2. Life quest: Save money, at least 200 per week would be great 3. Motivation: Before this challenge, I ran for a month, did yoga for a week, did bodyweight training for two weeks all at the same time before moving to another place and taking a week of rest. After that, I had a difficult time trying to go back to what I was doing
  21. Hey guys! I'm new to Nerd Fitness Rebellion. I immediately joined this community after weeks of scanning the web for weight loss communities and dieting sites. I wanted to know about diets that ACTUALLY work because i have tried so many!!! I am overweight but not by alot. Height: 5'7 Weight: 165 lbs Goal: 145 lbs Current BMI: 25.8 Should weigh: Between 138-160 pounds I want to lose between 10-25 pounds in the next three months. I plan on trying the Paleo diet and also a no carbs diet after hearing so many good things about them. I hope it works along with daily exercise and (this t
  22. Know that feeling when you realise that you've strayed so very far from the 'real you' that you almost give up and just accept where you're at? When you just stop looking in the mirror, buy clothes without trying them on, wear black and generally just stop trying. With a whole bunch of seemingly plausible excuses for how you got to this point? Well i've felt it, it absolutely sucks and it's got to stop. Despite a very active past and a background in elite sport, I have founded two companies in the past year and taken on a whole lot of projects which keep me computer-bound and as well as the
  23. I like many have been reading this blog for the last couple months without participating and then I saw this challenge this morning starting on a day where I once again vow to start eating right and stay eating right. Lucky for me I started today and hopefully this challenge will give me exactly the pull through I need. So I am a REBEL, currently an Adventurer hoping to be a handstanding Druid before to long but I think I better start smaller. GOALS: 1. Start running for at least 15 minutes at a time without wanting to puke. (and going running at least 6x's a week) - I can currently r
  24. Hey everybody. I'm Chad. I've been a reader of NerdFitness for a long time, and today I decided it was time to join the community. I'm at a point in my life where I need to make a lot of changes. Here are some stats: 29. 6'1". Floating right around 300lbs, with a constant +5 -5 thing happening. Getting healthier and fitter and having a better purpose when it comes to my health and fitness are things that have never meant anything to me, but now they are something that I find myself thinking more and more about, and they are something that I am changing. I'm also at a turning po
  25. The next six weeks are going to be CRAZY. My last day teaching (and working 70 hours a week at two jobs) is tomorrow, which means that I'll be back to working one job (yay normal life!). Then, on June 24th, I am moving to Tanzania for the next two years. Cue chaos. Amidst the chaos and the move and the culture stress bound to ensue, I want to keep in reasonable shape. But I realize that any complex or time-consuming goals simply won't happen. Thus, simple goals. 1). Stick with something I already do. Commute by bicycle to work at least twice a week. 2). Get back on track. Do a simple bo
