  1. It's been slightly over a year since my last challenge. The time since then has been difficult, so say the least. I've been lurking a bit lately but wasn't quite ready to jump in at the proper start of the challenge. But I'm nothing if not a rebel, so I'm posting this now instead. The pandemic has been hard on my mental health (which wasn't great to start with), but I've been doing a bit better lately. It feels pretty fragile, though, and I've been trying to find a way to push myself but not so much that I crumble. So, for the last half of this challenge, I'm focusing on the follow
  2. As the title suggests, it has been far too long since I participated in this forum, and since I actively tried to get my health and fitness under control. That ends now. While I haven't gone up in weight from where I had been back in 2016, I have noticed as I've carried around this extra weight these last few years, my joints are beginning to get more and more sore, and my breathing isn't as strong as it was. I've also just been scraping by in the life and career department, but that's a topic for another day. This challenge is going to bring me back on
  3. Hey folks! Good to be back I've built up some good habits over the past few years doing challenges on and (mainly) off, but have found the weight/size creeping back up and not shifting as it once did. Coming up to summer I have a bunch of clothes that don't fit as they once did, and I don't feel like the strength and health is as on track as it has been. My weight was a fairly steady 11-11.5 stone for a good long while, but it's crept up to 12 stone in the last year, and then over in the last few months. Currently at just under 12 stone (168lbs) and wanting to get down below 1
  4. After having a complete collapse of my final weeks of the previous challenge, I am coming back for more. Quests Lift: Do my lifting routine 3 days per week. Count: Count calories daily and stay at my goal. Cook: No fast food. This is what kills me, I stop and get something and get upset, blow off my workout, and eat like a fool for the rest of the day. Read: Reading from a book every day. Rewards Instead of rewards at the end of the challenge, I am going to be giving myself little rewards at the end of each week for
  5. Hello everyone! A lot has happened since the last time I did a challenge: 1) I graduated and earned my PharmD 2) I passed my boards and am now officially Dr. Borvatar Korra, RPh. 3) I moved to Iowa for a residency program to become a clinical pharmacy specialist 4) I have not worked out regularly in 4 months I'm excited about everything except #4. I had a really great community of lifting buddies, coaches, gyms, and a plethora of competitions in central Texas. In Iowa those things are... a little sparse. Luckily I found a gym that I really like and
  6. Hi, so I've hard the worst year so far. I graduated out of one of the most premier colleges in my country with an engineering degree but I wanted to pursue writing/filmmaking/game design. So I quit my first job and joined a screenwriting gig and then moved to writing for videogames. Things were great but then the game I was working on flopped and I was laid off. Meanwhile, I had 4 string of flames that ended so terribly and iconically they can be part of a movie. Also, because I was so disorganised, I was dead broke. I had to move out of my home and live with my friend for a while. I wen
  7. Hello there all. My story is pretty short. Back when I was in high school ( late 90s ) I started body building. I was at the gym for 4 hours a day,6 days a week. I was fairly strong and thought i looked and felt the way I wanted . Then once I was in my second year of college i encountered a monster that I was vastly unprepared for. This monster goes by the name of ( Desk Job). He sneaks into your life and slowly but surely breaks down everything you worked so hard to get. About 16 years later I am now double what I weighed and feel as strong as a 19 year old cat.
  8. After completely flaming out on my last challenge, I am rejoining the rebels and getting back to basics to wrap up the year. A bit about myself. I teach middle school math, enjoy playing board games, and 2016 has been the busiest year of my life (bought/remodeled my first house, got married, first overseas trip, and first baby on the way). I have lost about 85 lbs over the past 2 years and would like to lose about 60 more, but have plateaued for awhile do to inconsistency. For this months challenge I am going to focus on some basic things that I know I can do that have been succ
  9. Hey everyone, Oh my god. It's been a good 20 months or so since I was back here. I had a baby in December 2014, she's now 11 months old. Here we are I am still the weight I was when I had her- no lie. Probably a few pounds off, but not much. My life has changed quite a bit, to say the least. And now I want to focus on losing some weight. I am trying to watch my caloric intake. I am not at the point of a complete diet overhaul because I am breastfeeding. I am going to start slow, so here we go! Goals: 1. Log at least 5 days per week into MyFitnessPal (raraohlala, if you want to friend m
  10. Hey there, rebels. I last posted back in late April, when I had begun seeing a nutritionist, and my cat Mike was sick with toxoplasmosis (probably - it was never confirmed what he was sick with). Since then, Mike got well and then sick again, although unrelated to the last - he had to have surgery for a broken ball joint. That was 2 weeks ago. He's recovering really nicely. Also, the contract with my nutritionist ended. I learned a lot. I mainly learned the value of mindfulness regarding what I eat. I'm returning to Nerd Fitness now because watching Jessica Jones has made me realize I ha
  11. This challenge is going to be a little different from my previous challenges, which usually involve riding further, lifting heavier, eating cleaner, and lots of lame jokes. If you followed my last challenge you know I was in a fairly serious bicycling accident mid-challenge, involving my face, a concrete curb, a broken cheekbone and various bits of frankenstein-like stitchery (awesome addition to the scar collection, I must say), and then I had to really bust my butt to get it back together in time for my big cycling event over Labor day weekend. Which - with the love and support of the Nerd
  12. Ok, this challenge is going to be simple and straightforward. I probably will not do anything with the run-on story. And I will be online less than I have been for the previous 9 months. We moved. I am really enjoying being back in my home town in Minnesota. I love the new house. Life is good, but it is also really busy with unpacking and decorating, new jobs, and tons of fun things to do. I don't think I really fully grasped how limited my life (especially social) had become. I have already auditioned for (and made it into) the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra's Chorale!! It'
  13. So I've been getting back into rock music lately. Songs like Three Days Grace's Never Too Late and Sixx:A.M.'s Life is Beautiful have been kicking my mental butt because I had abandoned my goals and dreams to get healthy and have been wallowing in stress, excuses and absolute garbage (food). So I decided today that "Maybe I'll turn it all around, 'Cause it's not too late, It's never too late." (boom ba doom da doom, ba doom doo doo-doo boom ba doom da doom, ba doom doo doo...) It's time to "Open my eyes and see that life is beautiful" and stop focusing on all the stress that's surrounding me
  14. My whole childhood/teen years I was told many things, such as the following (with the best of intentions); "Oh, you're a great drawer, very artistic!" "You should be a designer!" "You're a good student, you could do [insert higher education purpose here]" "You're not even trying!" "You can do anything!" Which was great. Except inherent talent didn't do shit when I didn't have the push to improve, to excel, to better myself. People assumed I was doing well and left me to it. Well, instead of excelling, getting great at everything, I slacked. Got lazy. I did things to benefit myself in the mom
  15. Steve's article about "Doing Things You Suck At" poked me to get off my seat and write a challenge thread again. One of the things I suck at is sticking with things and keeping up a challenge thread. I reckon I can make my attention span at least 6 weeks long - it's time to give it a go again. Background “All this has happened before. All this will happen again.†I've been here before, both "here" in the Rebellion and "here" in my fitness journey. I completed my third challenge right before Christmas then somehow just trailed off after the new year. I was in the process of kic
