  1. Challenge #1 - 2016 Going from Princess to Queen For the last 24 years of being a mom, I have let life, kids and outside influences direct the course of my life. Staring this year, I am taking back the control I have given others & social media (mostly for good things, but still distractions to my life) and setting course to grow myself in three main areas based on my 2016 roadmap here. My life quest is to be a queen! That classy not quite middle aged woman that knows how to carry herself with dignity in every situation. Always having the right thing to say that not only hono
  2. Hey all! I'm Huntress. I used to hang around these parts back in 2013, when I was lifting, obstacle racing and eating clean. Since that time, I fell out of lifting, into indoor rockclimbing, into roller derby and most recently... into being a couch potato. If I look at my old progress pics, I've pretty much gone back to square one. I'm here again to turn that around. And although slimming down is nice - I can't deny it - it's not my primary motivation. What motivates me is my desire to have a body that can do cool stuff, whether that's a heavy deadlift or delivering an epic roller derby hit.
  3. Main goal: Climb all of the things! Parkour all of the things! Thumb my nose at gravity! Make and post videos of all of the things! My schedule is already really full, so I'm not biting off too much this challenge, fitness-wise. I already spend a lot of time doing parkour, rock climbing, and yoga. When I can manage to squeeze it in, I also like hand balancing, playing with weapons, hiking, rucking, and playground workouts. I'm also trying hard to remember that rest days are important, too. Even if I don't have so many direct fitness goals, I tend to log and talk incessantly about th
  4. What’s This? What’s This? There’s Yoga Everywhere! What’s This? There’s Smiling in the Air! Hello and welcome to RoseofMay’s third six week challenge! In saying goodbye to Halloween, we begin to approach one of my other favorite holidays: Christmas! What better way to work through this new challenge than with some help from some of the friendly folk of Halloween Town? In this challenge, I am going to continue working with yoga practices, sharpening my food habits, reminding myself of the good times, and simplifying my day with a little practice of time management.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm a longtime receiver of NF emails, but this is the first time I've actually gotten in there on the forums and decided to do a challenge. I'm a South Carolina native recently transplanted to Denver, CO. I'm a major nerd in the band sense and also in the foreign language sense, but I also enjoy fantasy, specifically LOTR and comic book movies. When I'm not music-ing or language-ing, you'll find me mountain biking, hiking, cooking, reading, or just hanging with my peeps. Main quest: Lose 5" total off my body measurements Goals for this challenge: take advantage of my ki
  6. It’s the next 6 Week Challenge and I am glad to be back again with the Scouts! I need a little extra kick in the backside since I was in a total slump over the Bye-Weeks. This will be my only 6 Week Challenge of the summer as I will be leaving for India 4 days after the challenge ends. So, I’ve got to make it COUNT. Some background for those joining me for the first time: I got sick in January with a mysterious abdominal illness. The short story is that I had surgery in February, but still have a wonky stomach which results in random pains that can last anywhere from 30 minutes to days a
  7. Hello friends! About halfway through last challenge I had an unexpected visit from the Shadows. I stopped everything. I have since told them to move on and I am ready to continue my journey to healthy weight gain and being in better shape than ever. Food I'm taking a bit of a different approach this time. I have decided to try keeping track of servings of different food groups. I will probably still calorie count the first week or so to make sure I'm still getting what I need and adjust servings as necessary. I'll probably come up with some kind of point system for this. Fit Body weight w
  8. It's time to get back on the horse! I had a great start, then petered out due to various life reasons, then spent the last couple of months being embarrassed to drag myself back. I think most people know that feeling, amirite? BUT I also know what an awesome and welcoming group this is, so I've come up with some new goals and decided to throw my hat in with you band of merry adventurers! I'm glad to be back. Mission: To continue my life's goal to become Batgirl. I actually got to meet Gail Simone at Emerald City Comic Con last month and tell her that Barbara Gordon is my fitness ido
  9. First off, I'm new to the community and seeking the advice of fellow Fitness nerds! My base stats are... Age 18, 130 lbs, female, 5'1, generally a couch potato (computer, tv, video games, reading, studying.) My legs are all muscle except for a little chub on my inner thighs. I have been actively going to the gym a minimum of 4 days a week for at least an hour a day for over six months now (cardio and strength training). I have gained a bit of muscle and slimmed down some, but I hope to drop a bit more fat. Originally I tried to maintain a 1200 calorie a day goal, however that left me feelin
  10. This is my second attempt at a challenge and I'm going to try a smaller approach this time in hopes of sticking with it the whole 6 weeks, then I can build from that progress. Background: I am a 31 year old mom of 2, struggling to figure myself out enough to grow in a “healthy†way. I used to consider myself a “country/farm†girl but now that I have a decent job/career established, I find myself behind a desk for what seems like the majority of my time. When I am not working behind the desk it seems as though I’m frantically trying to figure out how to provide nutritious meals to the
  11. It’s time to turn it up a notch. My last (un-)challenge worked out phenomenally in unexpected ways. Not only have I had a great, awesome, epic time the last few weeks, I’ve also fallen back in love with fitness. Specifically running. God, have I missed running. I’ve spent a long time thinking about how to set up this challenge. I’ve looked at what has worked for me and what hasn’t, and I’ve made a plan! Achievements work for me. They work much better than rules or numbers. My most successful challenges were those that made me go for shit and not do a certain thing X number of
  12. Challenge Goals: Nutrition- Eat Clean! I'm going for 42 days of clean eating. What does clean eating mean to me? Unlimited fruits and veggies, nuts, healthy fats, and full fat dairy in moderation. Organic or grass-fed meat when possible. That's the basics, obviously there's more to it than that. I've been doing really well so far, so it's not a drastic change but a continuation of what I'm currently doing. Fitness- Sprint! I'm going to 24 sprint sessions, which is an average of 4 per week. I also do one "long" run per week. Fitness- Bodyweight workouts! I'm
  13. UPDATED: MONDAY, JANUARY 12TH So.....2014 didn't end as well as I had hoped. I'm up 4.5# and 1.5% body fat since Thanksgiving. I wasn't really doing much to lose weight over the holidays, but I'd hoped not to gain either...c'est la vie.. But I'm ready to get things going again for 2015! It's going to be a really great year...I can feel it!! FITNESS GOALS FOR 2015Get down to 25% body fatDo one pull-upStart taking aerial classesGreatly improve on five yoga poses GOALS FOR THIS CHALLENGEComplete the challengeReduce body fat by 2%Make noticeable improvement on yoga poses CHALLENGE ACTIONSStrength
  14. What's up, Rangers? I choose YOU for my first ever NF Challenge. (Please love me?) It's a long, long walk to Tar Valon, but every sheepherder's got to make it past Devon's Ferry at some point in their life, and I've got dreams of tall spires, heavy objects, and maybe even one day becoming the Dragon Reborn - but you know they're all false, right? They have to be. As far as where I'm starting, in race types, I'm a half-ogre - I gain muscle easily, I'm a little bigger/heavier than I want to be. I have a background in both agility sports (tennis, frisbee) and strength sports (rugby), but

  16. I'm the type of person who plans and plans and plans and really struggles to get around to executing and following through. I'm joining this challenge because I want to commit myself to actually doing something and seeing it through. Over the past several months I've taken baby steps toward my health fitness goals - I've thought all about it, researched it, written personal plans for it, *started* lots of programs - and I have had successes and setbacks. This time I'm excited to see where 6 weeks of proper dedication can take me! My main quest is a more general one: to progress on 3 aspects
  17. Sixth Challenge [ September 15th – October 26th ] In the land of the dritch Background story Cuckoo, cuckoo. A bird's call is waking me from my slumber. I'm surrounded by trees, some are violet, a few magenta but most are plain purple. Yawning I get up and look around, a strange feeling in my heart.... It takes a few moments, but then I realize what's wrong. I have no idea, where I am and even less how I got there. “Are you lost?â€, said a voice from the branch above me. A feline creature is hanging from there and looks at me with his inverted face. “Who are you?â€,
  18. Hey guys! I'm, super excited about this challenge. If I really push it this time, I think I'll be able to visualize what's really possible long term. It's a process, a long one, and I know that. It doesn't make me any less impatient though... So as I look of into the horizon, I pack my bags to prepare for a journey. Destination: unknown Long term goal: -get myself up to a healthy weight, 120-130 depending on how much muscle and BF% I decide to go with -have more strength, stamina, and flexibility than ever before -to be able to do things like push ups, pull ups, running around with my ki
  19. I won't go into too much detail and will come right to the point, "how can I start eating clean" This particular problem has kept me jumbled up for years and because of this I've given up so many times but this time I won't lose to this question! That's why I am here~ I am not 100% paleo, not perfect with dieting but I am ready to learn, ready to absorb your knowledge. I am a runner but will start body weight training soon. I am new to this concept so I may need your help and your advice.
  20. Well Skywalker, it's time you lived up to your name. Main Goal: To complete a 'Great Walk' - one of a multitude of multi-day hikes that is on my to do list. Current Goal: To peak bag VIctoria's (in Australia) highest mountain - Mt Boyong. I haven't actually booked this in but I spent the evening sorting out my calendar in order schedule a weekend in the high country and to climb Mt Boyong. Now it isn't a particularly high peak, or even difficult as in it could be a day hike, but I needed a hiking goal and I haven't done this before. To reach this lofty peak I want to increase my hik
  21. Edit: I have moved to the assassin's guild! As a third-timer, I have an excuse. Follow me here! Hello, friends! Fair warning: long post ahead. My very vague master quest is to survive a semester in Rome, which I hope to take in Fall 2014. I need the strength to haul heavy suitcases through airports and up hotel stairs, the stamina to spend entire days or weekends walking through Europe, the discipline to finish my final paper in history during the semester while making time to explore the world, and the skills/charisma to order meals in multiple languages and meet new people. The ma
  22. Late post, but better late than never. Wasn't sure if I wanted to do a challenge but realized I need the accountability and the peer groups on this thread really help me out. lift maxes as of now---->goal in 6 weeks (listed favorite to least) Snatch- 115lbs----->135lbs Powerclean- 150lbs----> 165lbs Deadlift- 270lbs 1RM-----> (300 is within my reach!) 285/290lbs Front squat- 175lbs----> 190 Back squat- 210lbs----> 210 x4 (been my goal forever) or 220 1rm reasonable lifting goals considering I'm going to be travelling alot/starting a 6 days a week/60hrs a week hard labor
  23. Main Quest: Honor the Vessel. Develop a new appreciation for the body I have and start listening to it. A sort of quest to increase my intuition for what is good and healthy for my whole being as well as accepting where I am right now. I have struggled my whole life with comparing myself to others and its not fun for me to admit it. I realize I will always have goals and will overcome many things in the future, but I want to really appreciate what I've been given. Realize that it's a blessing. Sorry if this all seems sappy. I am coming back from almost 4 years of personal neglect where my bi
  24. This is my first challenge ever, and I'm really excited to see how this goes. So, let's get down to business: The ultimate goal: Lose inches I've spent a lot of time worrying about the number on the scale, which I've realized recently just makes me crazy. I want to start lifting weights more to try to build up some strength, but I don't want to get too bulky (I'm female). How is this going to happen?! - Go to boxing class at least 3 days a week - Go to the gym and do a minimum of 25 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of lifting on days when I do not attend class - Eat a clean diet Li
  25. Towards the end of 2011, my wife shared with me the "world famous" picture of pink slime and told me to guess what it was. Like most, I guessed it to be Strawberry yogurt, or strawberry ice cream. I received the shock of my life when I learned what it truley was. Intreegued, I did a little more research and learned about what pink slime was, how it was made and that it was a pretty common practice in the food industry. It was also around this time that I made a sweeping declaration...no more fast food, no more soda. I was working at becoming a cleaner, leaner, meaner me. I upheld this lif
