  1. So I recently agreed to take part in a 5k run as part of a fund raiser in July/August - the final date isn't set. I'm basically a non runner but wouldn't consider myself a couch potato. I work in a kitchen 10+ hours a day and can comfortable walk in excess of 20 miles without much issue. As such I've picked up the NHS Couch to 5k App and started on week two. I've done my first two runs without too much issue. Its a challenge but I'm recovering pretty fast. Obviously I have a deadline now and I was wondering if it would be sensible to try to speed through doing a run every other day cutting it
  2. Mega Quest: My 2016 theme is "Opportunity favors the prepared." I'm in a better position to pursue a career opportunity when I maintain my network and resume and take time to build my skills. I'm in a better position to go on an amazing last-minute hiking trip if I'm already active and working on being fit. Sure, it's nice to dream about moving to Germany, but it's a lot more likely if I speak the language (classes started in January). And in general, luck seems more likely to come my way when I'm keeping myself happy, healthy, and fulfilled via self care and pursuing my interests. I want

    Bee Laces Up

    I'm Bee! For the past six months I've been focusing on my health and wellness through nutrition and mindfulness. Over the course of 3 years I gained about 30 pounds and struggled significantly with depression, anxiety, and accumulating health issues. After many failed attempts at restrictive diets and all-or-nothing workout regimes, I finally found that taking a simplistic approach toward changing my eating habits a little bit at a time allowed me to develop a greater awareness and appreciation of what I put in my body. I also dug deep into the core of my compulsive overeating and began to
  4. "Today you will be examined for the Mark of Mastery. Not one but two of the Keyblade's chosen stand here as candidates... but this is neither a competition nor a battle for supremacy - not a test of wills, but a test of heart. Both of you may prevail, or neither." - Master Eraqus Ventus - Agility "I've become a part of their heart, just as they've become a part of mine. My friends are my power...and I'm theirs!" -Ventus Start on Couch to 5k trainingIn an effort to make sure I do not overtax myself I am only going to make my goal 3 days a week of walking in the beginning (maybe the first two
  5. Between Heaven and Hell.. Anything is possible. "Now I realize that there is no righteous path, it's just people trying to do their best in a world where it is far too easy to do your worst." -Castiel For the very first time in my life I have signed up for a 5K run, which is something that I never would have figured possible for a figure like myself. I know that I can do it, and I want to keep that mindset, not just at the beginning of year. I did already register, why waste the registration for a no show due to lack of self esteem and quit before I even try. So this challenge I plan on w
  6. Current Quest: (PART ONE) 1/5 - 1/23 - Come Back from the Dead MAIN QUEST: Back to Basics :: Don't Suck I've been AWOL for about 3 months... Sigh. I'm lucky that my reason for being AWOL is that I got VERY involved in the play I was doing, made a bunch of new friends, and subsequently did a lot of this: Time to recommit and get ready to rock! Ultimate Quest: Survive the Zombie Apocalypse NECESSARY SKILLS: I will be focusing on... STR: Fend off zombies with brawn STA: Outrun hordes for long distances DEX: Be agile and quick enough to cover rugged, varied terrain effortlessly

  8. I successfully completed my first challenge, and then bombed my second. I’m back for my second second challenge. My goals are more Adventure-based, so I thought I’d come play over here for a while instead of in the Assassins guild. I will be graduating nursing school very soon and am very busy (I may not reply right away if you’re interested in following, but I will eventuallyJ). My first 2 challenge plans were rather straight-forward, so I thought I’d jazz this one up with 2 things I adore – space and mushrooms. Goal: Chase down Exotic Space Mushrooms for research (build stamina t
  9. In which I describe my goals: I'm working on getting my life together in numerous ways, one of which is managing my ADHD better. My therapist says that a solid foundation for managing ADHD is based on consistency in four key areas: 1) Medication, 2) Sleep, 3) Exercise, 4) Diet. My medication is pretty good and I've taken big steps in making my sleep consistent. That means that it's time for number three! Now, I could argue that I'm already consistent in this area, in that I don't get any exercise. (Har.) But my blood pressure's getting a little high, and I'm tired of getting breathles
  10. Hi, I'm Mindy! I'm 32 years old, and I live in Seattle. I'm also a huge nerd! I grew up on a steady diet of Star Trek (DS9 is my favorite), I used to play in the SCA, I love tabletop RPGs, and I've been writing fanfiction for almost 20 years. Most of my life I've been that kind of awkward, fat, quiet girl. You know the type. I lived in my head and not in my body. Looking back, I realize that, even when I realized I was drawn to physical activities, I avoided doing them because I was so self conscious of the way I looked. I've always wanted to run, for instance, but I didn't want people to see
  11. YESTERDAY (3/25) C25k Wk7 Day 1 1.46 miles, 18:05 min/mile, 26.21 consecutive minutes (I was feeling good, so I kept going after the 25 minute mark) TODAY (3/26) EXERCISE First stab at the beginner body weight tutorial. I didn't realize how long it would take, so I only left time for one circuit. I was really surprised at how hard it was, too. I am more out of shape than I thought. Didn't warm up enough, either. Next time, I'll run through a sun salutation first. body weight squats: 20 (pain in the right knee . . . maybe it will go away as I get stronger?)(bent-knee) push ups: 7lunges:
  12. Just out of curiosity, would it be possible to use the C25K program to increase my speed? I learned to run about 4 years ago using the program, but I live perpetually stuck at a 10 minute mile pace for a 5K. I'm thinking it might work if I were to jog during the "walking" parts of the program, then push myself much harder during the "running" parts. Or does anyone know of a program designed for increasing speed? I really like the C25K format, and the apps you can get to go with it, so I'm hoping either that will work or I can find something similar.
  13. Jumping in late, so this will really only be half a challenge. I tried doing my first challenge back in November and fell off the wagon after a couple of weeks, so, this is my second attempt... Start of NF (and Current) Height: 5'9" Weight: 258-260 lbs Body Fat: 47.5% Hips: 48.25" Waist: 42" Arms: 15.75" Thighs: 32" Pants: 18-20 Shirt: XL-XXL Since I'm only doing half the challenge, and since I failed so miserably last time, I just have 2 goals: Track Everything [+1 WIS, +1 CON]​Track all food/activity on WeightWatchersWear and sync FitBit every dayCouch to 5K [+2 STA, +1 DEX]​Foll
