  1. [posting from my phone so forgive my typos & grammar] Life story; CURRENT GOALS 1. Get out of bed when your body wakes up. When I'm on work time I generally need to be out of bed by 6am to have enough time to cruise through my morning routine, but I've often woken up earlier then my alarm and tried to sleep more and made myself feel worse when I do finally get up. I'm going to make a point of hauling ass out of bed when I wake up if it's within a few hours or so of my alarm going off. 2. No screens in the morning before work. This is we
  2. I was in the Assassins Guild quite some time ago, but I've been an Adventurer since then. Last night, however, I watched Assassin's Creed - because Fasbender! And since I know I need to change things up with my challenges, if you all don't mind, I've returned for this round, and maybe longer. I want to Assassinate my challenges and I want to be the boss of my body... Wait no, that's not quite right. 'Want' and 'need' are purposeless words, like 'try'. A great being once said 'Do or do not, there is no try.' If I say I need to, or want to, do something, but then don't take the steps to
  3. Hello, hello. I have been a member since 2012. In university I had a routine that kept me consistent and motivated to workout. Now that I've been in the real world (aka working for a living) I am finding it much harder to keep a consistent and sustainable routine. Would love a partner to help keep me accountable (and I am happy to help in return). Hiking is my favorite but I also dabble in yoga, running, bodyweight and gym workouts (part of my struggle to be consistent). Would also love someone who will geek out with me. Star Wars and Dragon Age are always personal obsessions favor
  4. Challenge Reflections What Went Well: 1. My challenge quest tracker helped me stay accountable and motivated to fill in those little squares! 2. Meal planning made eating healthy mindless and easy, and easy to track since it was all planned out. 3. Getting up early in the morning to run or cycle or whatever makes me feel good and I enjoy having some Me time before my day starts (especially since my evenings are usually hanging on the couch with my mom watching TV). 4. Drinking 100 oz of water a day makes me feel well and healthy. Where Things Fell Apart:
  5. It's been a while since I've worked on a challenge and I'm still feeling the high of CNF, so I want to try and capture the momentum I've felt the last several days and propel myself towards my goals. I'm terrible at keeping up with these things but I also tend to want to write novels, so I'm going to try to keep it simple. I had an amazing time this past week and absolutely feel a renewed commitment to my own health and fitness. I'm especially thrilled that my boyfriend came to camp with me. I think we've got a good foundation that we can now build on. My goals for this challenge:
  6. One of my biggest enemies to productivity is schedule changes. I find that as soon as my schedule changes dramatically I neglect my new good habits and return to my old bad habits. And these next two weeks my enemy is returning. I just finished my summer internship at my church and will be going back to college after a 2-week lull. So my schedule is changing twice over the next two weeks.This means that I need to be extra careful to keep up the good habits I have been starting to form with my last challenge. I'm mainly going for consistency this challenge instead of trying to do more.
  7. (summary only) - will fill in some more later. Hello everybody, My work goes into high gear now. From now until December, my time and energy are much more constrained, so I will have to fight extra hard to keep my progress. So this challenge will really be about continuing to do the things I am currently doing, and improving my ability to "adapt, improvise, and overcome" - to borrow a line. The first week of the challenge, I am likely to be working 80 or so hours a week, so anything I get done today through Saturday will be a bonus. For the remaining three week
  8. Busy day but I'm posting quickly before bed... I'm back for my third start. In the past I've gone strong for two weeks and then fallen off. I t's not even a conscious decision. I lose focus, stop paying attention, get distracted, and then get angry at myself and have difficulty getting back on track. So this challenge it's about staying on track and really paying attention. I'm sticking just to the basics, no frills. I feel like I really need a win under my belt to prove to myself that I can do this. And I can! I have before. Food - Track everything on MFP. This is
  9. Moros

    Moros Goes to 11

    Hello Everyone - it's my 11th challenge: Last challenge was an improvement in terms of doing, but I was pretty lousy about posting. I'd like to both this time. The challenge itself is similar, but I'm adding Bodyweight exercises back in. It seems to work better if I organize my stuff by time of day: I'm also going to make this challenge more fun, but I have a few days to organize my fun
  10. Valkyrie lay in the woods, comfortable in the familiarity of her surroundings. The leaves she lay on were soft as a feather down mattress, and she lay there for as long as she could remember. Now and then, she attempted to get up, but her limbs felt heavy, her head was muddled, and every time she settled again into her comfortable bed of leaves, unaware of the vines and roots of the darker things in the forest that had begun to wrap themselves around her body as she rested, utterly deaf to the sounds of the creatures which lay in wait for her. These creatures were Sloth, Complacency and Doubt.
  11. My fitness adventure has been an on again off again relationship, with spurts of consistent effort mixed with spans of total inactivity. So, here I am again, but over the last year, my spurts of activity have been a lot more frequent than my hiatuses, and the set up of NF inspires me, because I want to click that button and get my XP!! My goals are for functional fitness so that I can do cool stuff, not get hurt at work, and have energy for life at the end of the work day. I spent the last 1.5 years just outside of Seattle, where I cycled occasionally, and then I spent 3 months in
  12. Just beginning today. Reading through everything. Food for today (I write down my food at night for the next day). 4 oz Hummus, 1 pear (Breakfast) 6 oz bok choy, squash, 6 z salad 1 tsp oil, 4 oz tempeh (lunch) 6 oz steamed vegie, 4 oz chicken, 8 oz salad 1 tablespoon dressing 5;5" starting weight 136 Walked 5 minutes. Haven't worked out consistently in 2 years. Will do body weight workout later. Magoll
  13. I was eager to do the last challenge but I came in a bit late so I'm excited it reset and I can participate in this one. Goal #1 - Consistency My biggest problem in the past is not being able to stick to a program. I get easily distracted or something hurts and I end up wandering off the garden path. My primary aim for this challenge is to hit my program 90% or better consistency. This is to allow for unforeseeable circumstances should I not be able to get to the gym one day. 90% is still 85% better than what I have been getting in the past. I track this by having
  14. Originally I was going for an 8 week challenge not really understanding the elements of the challenges, but after having some light shed onto the matter, I've been introduced to a new, creative way to still complete the challenge in the time frame, but also follow along with the challenge dates ( to an extent). So what I'm going to do is during this last week and off week of this months challenge, I'm going to do a two week pre challenge. To basically adjust my lifestyle to this new habit I'm forming, the at the start of the challenge next month, i'll do a 6 week challenge instead of the 4! I
  15. I'm back! And I'm trying to be more regular on the boards again. I have a lot going on with my life at the moment: the move, Camp NaNo, finishing my re-write (or trying to), exercising, trying not to be overwhelmed, finishing financial aid, sisters wedding, blah blah blah So I'm keeping this as simple as possible. That means no theme, no frills, just 3 measurable goals I can do every day. I want to get more momentum behind me. Goal 1: Meditation Meditate for 1 minute every day That's it. Just take a minute to be mindfully aware. Who can't spare a minute
  16. fearless is ready and willing to kick it up a notch during this challenge. she has a month of consistent cross fit training under her belt, has lost weight during the last 4 weeks and was feeling quite well mentally. now she will fight the bankruptcy dragon and concentrate on the diet as well. she loved stacy s article about prepping food and as soon as she gets paid, will get started on freezing food for the week. because she is almost 50 and not very fit she is in constant doms pain, which makes her feel pretty badass sometimes. but she sees the need to prepare her body for the high impact w
  17. Being consistent is something I struggle with. In the last challenge, I found a bit of consistency, but the trouble was it was consistently mediocre. So I'll be doing more of the same, but hopefully with a little more consistent awesomeness. Also, progress bars. Goal #1 ~ Run 4k 3x/week* I've decided to dispense with the first half of my 4k route that I've been doing and just run my 2k hilly loop twice. I'm not pleased with this decision, but when I was first training for the PREP, doing that loop once 3x/week as hard as I could got me where I needed to be. I'm looking for a little more en
  18. Well..... I somehow had a button on my other thread where I was able to delete the whole thing....on accident. Maybe part of the upgrade? It said "moderater button" or something... lol. I thought I was deleting a post I was making.. ah well. Anyway. No cinnamon toast so far today. Grateful for....ummmm. Being able to start a new thread
  19. Last Challenge, MEH! Most of it was a success, except the food tracking, so this next four weeks will be all about the bass.....NO! All about tracking food and staying on target. First thing to do is work out TDEE and other things, make a plan and stick to it! I am also into the last four weeks of Madcow, which has been going great, but I have reached the point where stalls are beginning to become a reality, so nutrition needs to be spot on. When Madcow is done I plan a week off, then start Cube training. Adulting is still a LUYL. Have got Son5 off to school tomorrow, Son2, Son3 and Son4 are s
  20. {Placeholder} I will phone it in later. Goal 1 measure Ok, this is more like size matters. I have to get back to measuring and logging caloric intake. I can get a little laissez faire during a bulk. I am not ready to cut and am fine with either maintaining or gaining... but I gotta get back to measuring. Goal 2: Consistency What had felt nearly automatic to get up and get to the gym 4x/week has become a struggle again. Lots of stuff getting in the way so back to basics. At least 15 workouts in 4 weeks. That gives me one screw up. Goal 3: Name change Sometime during the chall
  21. I am running a tad behind posting my challenge. To top it off it is outlined on another computer so I am going to modify it as soon as I am able. My main goals for 2016 are to continue to loose weight, build strength, run and bike longer, do a handstand, do a pull up, and just continue to have fun getting healthier as I set a good example for my family. Okay my family and extended family loves RWBY. We have a blast watching it so I am going to have fun and do some RWBY themed challenges (bascially making them fit my goals just because it is fun). Jaune Arc – Leader of team JNP
  22. Hello, I'm Bluethunder.... I joined NF last month in between challenges and started a Battle Log, but was encouraged to join a challenge....so here I am. I'm using the template for level 1 Rebel Challenge sorta.... I have one major diet challenge and that is cinnamon toast which I have a bad habit of eating til I explode. So I need to stay away from that at all cost. My next goal is fitness and diet?... I'd like to lose 4 pounds by the end of this... Last goal is fitness related.... I just recently upped my treadmill speed to 7.5 which is slightly out of my comfort zone. So I'd lik
  23. Once again, I skipped a 6 week challenge, and I got a ton of stuff done. Lost a few pounds, got my crock pot rocking some recipes, got into a workout groove, saw a bunch of countries, met an assassin in another country, generally had fun. How is it that when I try to do stuff it doesn't get done, but when I'm just messing around stuff gets done. Hmmmm.... Okay, so this go around my goal 1 is to have fun. Yep - go do interesting things, hang out with people, just have fun. I have found a small group that works out Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This week is no good courtesy of a bug I
  24. The timing of this challenge means that Star Wars EpVII releases the Thursday after the challenge is complete. Do not think I am not quivering in my trail shoes while I wait, impatiently. Quivering. Occasionally quaking. Also, just in case anyone was wondering, this is a completely Episode VII Spoiler-free zone. I want to be amazed when I see it. Main Quest: I was watching American Ninja Warrior last summer when Jon Stewart became the oldest man to beat the Warped Wall. He was 52 at the time. I decided that instead of sitting around, growing old, doing the occasional 5k and settling fo
  25. I've had a bit of trouble starting my thread for this challenge. The thing is: I have a long-term plan in place, but I couldn't think of a clever/interesting/pop-culture-referencing theme to use for this particular 6 week span. Then it hit me. Just stick with the plan! My overall goal is to add muscle to my skinny frame. My long-term goal is to put on about 10 pounds of muscle by my 40th birthday (Dec 2016). I have been working for the last 5 months to lose a bit of belly fat and achieve a "lean base". I have a new intermediate goal, which is to have a beach-ready body by the end of
