  1. It had been a nice vacation; a time to relax and take stock of the situation. Now Anim returned to his normal routine with new conviction. Spent the first week of this challenge at Disney World; walking ~5mi a day and playing with the niece and cousin seems to have balanced out all the buffets and snacks. So now I've got 3 weeks left to return to normal and settle back into my routine. Goals are mostly unchanged from last challenge. At least 5 "workouts" a week, including stretching as appropriate, options include: -dedicated strength work with skill
  2. Anim surveyed the area with some surprise. It had been too long since he had truly looked at his surroundings. He could remember victories and pitfall along the way, but with no real certainty of when or where they had occurred. Simply put: he had fallen into a pattern and let it carry him where it wanted. But now it was time to take back control of his path. Goals: At least 5 "workouts" a week, options include: -dedicated strength work with skill practice (currently free handstands), up to 3 per week -HIIT/sprints, up to 2 per week -Crossfit class, at least 1 per week -Strenuous yard
  3. The theme this time around is Galavant and there will probably be some gallivanting (and possibly mayhem). The four weeks of this challenge promise to be exciting and slightly insane what with finishing my Christmas break, moving back to school, and kicking off the new semester. While I’m normally fairly busy, the beginnings/ends of semesters tend to be especially chaotic and stress-inducing. Since this challenge is only four weeks long, I’m going to keep this round fairly standard and work on rebuilding and reinforcing old habits. The themes and goals are basically the same as last ti
  4. There have been rumors that Chancellor Palpatine is plotting to overthrow the current rule of law and become a dictator. Don't try to ask me where I got my intel, or who hired me - like a good Assassin, I won't tell you. But, I have been hired to go investigate this rumor, and if it's true, try to do something about it. Those jedi can be rather pesky, though, so I'll have to be quite sneaky...I think I'll need a disguise. Goal One: Get to Coruscant! It's rather far away, so I'll need to make sure I travel a lot every day, to make good time. 13000 steps (and/or other activity translated
  5. Nightcrawler_Bamff in the Danger Room Story: After touring the upper grounds of the mansion, Kurt and Professor Xavier descend to a hidden compound deep under the school itself using a hidden elevator. The first room they enter is small and empty other than an ornate, curved desk. Xavier pulled out a small, cordless machine that he had been carrying . "This is Cerebro. It enhances my telepathic abilities and allows me to locate any person on the planet and differentiate between human and mutant. I first learned of your brother's deeds and was on my to see if I could help in any way
  6. Argh. I typed most of this, hit the Enter key and for some reason Google Chrome decided that meant "go back." Starting over... *grumble grumble* Main Quest: Obese No More. This requires that I lose almost 100 pounds. My current weight is 261, and in order to no longer be obese according to the BMI, I must weigh 169 at least. Quest 1: Heavy lifting workout 3 days a week (3 exception days permitted). I'm permitting exception days because I know that real life can get in the way, and there's also a much greater chance of me getting sick this time of year, which would prevent exercise. Al
  7. I sat out the last challenge and did an "anti-challenge" before that. It was nice to have a break and just free form my exercises, but it's time to dig back in and chase some goals down. Challenge Themesong: Tom Petty - Runnin Down a Dream Goals: 1: Handstands - Work on them at least 4 days a week. I can currently do a 30+ sec wall handstand, but my PR for a free handstand is ~5sec. 2: Muscle Up - Work towards them at least 4 days a week. Current workout includes supersets of chest-to-bar pullups and low dips, but I don't have anywhere handy to try an actual muscle up at the moment
  8. I keep running into the problem of my goals falling apart halfway through the challenge. Last challenge, I just didn't bother grading because I didn't care enough to remember what I claimed I was going to accomplish. So this time around I'm going completely free form. Challenge Themesong: General goals for this challenge are: Get in shape for Dragoncon - I'm down to a 30.5in waist at ~13.5%BF, and my goal is <10%BF. Rough estimates are telling me that's a 29in waist, but I'd be happy with <30in by the end of Aug. Finish costumes - I'm still working on Nightcrawler and a Diddy K
  9. Still no idea what I'm doing with my life, beyond doing what I can to enjoy it and Nightcrawler is still the current focus. DragonCon is now less than 3months away, so plenty of time as long as I keep working on it. I learned a lot about what works and doesn't work for me last challenge when I dove into tracking and then all but quit halfway through. Calorie/macro tracking, specifically, is too much work for me to do on a daily basis, but not tracking at all doesn't give me the results I want (I cut from 18.5%BF to 16%BF while gaining 3lb overall in ~4weeks, then stalled when I quit tracki
  10. I'm still deciding what I want to do with my life overall, but I at least have a goal for the next 5 months: at DragonCon this year, I must be able to do Nightcrawler true justice. Last year was acceptable, but this year will be better. To that end, and taking into account my progress last challenge, it's time to organize my workout and diet. Challenge Themesong: Metallica - Fuel (edit: I'll save the other songs for another challenge) Goals for this Challenge: 1: Start Tracking (Con +2, Wis +2) I've been flying by the seat of my pants for the past few months while I reacquaint myself wi
  11. I'm still working on the exact wording for my main quest, something to encapsulate the desire to perfect myself, body, mind, and soul, and constantly seeking new challenges to test how far I've come along that path. For now I'll stick with something simple: Let's go have an adventure! My motivation is equally simple: Grow or Die. Every time I've gotten to a place in my life where I start to think I'm doing well enough, I stagnate and lose a piece of my life. I'm tired of letting that happen, so I've got to accept that the only way to live is to constantly challenge myself. Challenge The
  12. Hello good gentles, I'm just seeing how many other NF members participate in the SCA. For those of you not in the know, the Society for Creative Anachronism (or SCA) is an educational organization focused on recreating the best parts of the European Middle Ages (approximately 600-1600 AD). We have everything from armored combat, to royalty, chivalry, music, tapestries and everything inbetween. If you're curious, check out the society website: www.sca.org Also, feel free to ask questions! I hail from the sunny land of Atenveldt and have been playing regularly for about 6 years. I'm prima
