  1. When I set goals for 2020 I was very conservative because I was about to have a baby - couldn't have predicted how much extra reason we would have to go easy on ourselves - so all my goals were related to finding a new balance and rebuilding/re-establishing what I'd won over the years. I allowed myself one bonus goal; writing. I need it for all my mayor life goals. I figure it's going to take me years to learn... and while I made a tiny little bit of progress this year, I'd love to finish the year with something tangible. Main goal; writing habit 5 days a week sit down to wri
  2. Hi! I'm KB Girl. Even though it's a lame name it's still quite accurate because i want to be the best kettlebell sport coach there ever was... and I'd like to be a somewhat decent athlete too* Currently i'm 6,5 weeks post partum, so this challenge i'll mostly be working on getting some strength and endurance back. *Because being an athlete is not fun exactly... but it's challenging and awesome and worthwhile. This video is from one of my best memories ever, my set during the european championships of 2018 (amateur category). The cheers from my teammates are amazing! And we had suc
  3. Wonder Woman Teams Up Anew Diana gave the men around her a friendly smile as she entered the room. Everyone on their small team (The Justice League) were there: Bruce Wayne, the unofficial leader, also known as Batman, Clark Kent (Superman), Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Barry Alan (The Flash), and Victor Stone (Cyborg). Alfred was probably somewhere in the new headquarters’ computer room, sorting through tech., getting everything set up, making sure Bruce’s every whim is taken care of. Now that they were through the aftermath of Darkseid’s attack, they had to focus on plans to prot
  4. This challenge I will be channelling one of my favourite Disney women: Fa Mulan. While not technically a Princess, she is brave and strong and beautiful. She starts weak and works on herself to become a strong enough soldier to defend all of China. She’s pretty damn BadAss. As such I will be theming my regular goals around Mulan. Eat like a warrior (freggies, protein): In order to perform I need to maintain good eating habits. Continuing the 5-a-day freggie habit and bringing in the a-protein-with-every-meal habit. This could take many forms… meat, eggs, cheese, protein shake etc. Have
  5. Kishi

    Kishi Says Clean

    It's fun to do music in my challenges again. I missed it. So, gonna keep this short and simple because I've started parts of it and I'm on a short amount of time. Yes, time. I was staring at my schedule - all the things that I wanted to do and want to do still - and it finally occurred to me: life would just be easier with more daytime in it. And the way that happens is to go to bed earlier. But it's not just about going to bed earlier. The truth is, a lot of my life is messy. I'm thinking about that a lot I guess because, well, my bro and I are looking at moving out of
  6. "But Kishi, aren't you doing themed challenges?" Well, I'm still working through the WOT, but like I said, theming it was getting pretty thin. And since I'm still working my way through book 6, well, I didn't think it made a lot of sense to worry too much. I suspect that going forward, I'm going to have to let that sink into the background of things. Anyway. I'll have to post some Righteous Santa Justice or something once I'm at a computer that lets me do that. So. I went to give blood on Monday. Giving blood is a good thing to do - it burns calories, regula
  7. The lions sing and the hills take flight. The moon by day, and the sun by night. Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool. Let the Lord of Chaos rule. Aiyaa. I must hate myself. There's 47 different POV characters in this book, and the prologue is 30K words. But, lots of cool things happen here. Can't deny that. Anyway, the month's work is cut out for me. NaNoWriMo is up in about a week, and I got a GoRuck to perform. We're coming down to the wire in terms of how prepared we're going to be for that (and by we, I mean me. I'm sure @RisenPhoenix has this in hand).
  8. With his coming are the dread fires born again. The hills burn, and the land turns sere. The tides of men run out, and the hours dwindle. The wall is pierced, and the veil of parting raised. Storms rumble beyond the horizon, and the fires of heaven purge the earth. There is no salvation without destruction, no hope this side of death. It's such a happy story. Did I mention that? Just, this amazing, joyous thing. You'll want to dance after you read this. Anyway, things are not getting any easier for our heroes. Rand, having survived and been marked by his time in the Was
  9. HI GUYS!! Welcome to my... what, 16th challenge here?? HOLY SNACKS. I honestly think I've lost count. Eep~ At any rate I’m clearly still on an FFXIV kick so for this challenge, welcome to the snowy city-state of Ishgard. This challenge is a little different from previous of mine in that the activity level has a bit of a different focus... I’m going to be doing a lot of tracking, logging, data-mining, and habit observing this go-around. Of course my regular fitness will still take place in the background! (And on my first quest!) Ishgard is
  10. The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. For centuries, gleemen have told of The Great Hunt of the Horn. Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. And it is stolen. And so we begin. Book II. In which a powerful relic is lost, and a powerful enemy is found. The last challenge went really well. A lot of things that I didn't expect to go right went... well, right. It's a series of facts and such th
  11. Ok so managed to film my 85kg squats, 40kg overhead press and 120kg deadlift. With the deadlifts, I know I am squatting them up, however our plates do not lift the bar to the regulation 21cm's, so I kinda do a semi, deficit deadlift. I need to get to the gym and practice on a properly heighted bar.
  12. Hi, I live in Manhattan and was wondering if there are any NF'ers with a squat rack/bench at their apartment? My apartment is a bit small (it could fit but I have roommates) and there is always a long line at the gym for squat racks, so if there's anyone in the area who has one at home and wouldn't mind letting me use it a couple of times a week (could discuss payment, etc) that would be great. I understand there would be liability issues, but I'd hope we can work something out. ANd mods, if this is not a sanctioned topic please let me knwo. My intentions are simply
  13. Deadlifts have always been my sticking point in competition. I'll go to pull the second or third lift and it'll feel tough and I'll just give up! Third attempt deadlift (135kg) - 2 December 2016 - Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships Yesterday I did my first competition for six months. My coach took charge of my attempts. I opened at 130kg (I've done it in training whilst feeling like death, so no fear on that) and then put 140kg in for my second attempt. I was terrified. It was tough. It went up but, as many of you will be aware, there are times when you
  14. Legend of a Banished Man **this challenge features Rurik the wolfhunter from Urban[Wolf] by our own Wild Wolf** The forest was throbbing with the sound of animal nightlife. The noises made by bugs and the nervous wondering of rodents bared witness of the never sleeping force of wildlife. The warrior listened to this medley of sounds like it was an orchestra playing just for him. Sitting on a branch, resting his back against the trunk of the tree he began to fall asleep. He had strapped himself to the tree to avoid falling over if he tilted to one side or the other while sleeping. The last
  15. Back-story: I am in my masters program in college. I go to the school gym because as long as you are a full time student you get to use the gym limitlessly. So I've been lifting at this gym for months now. Working out has become my stress relief and deadlifts are my anger management. Today, IN THE MIDDLE OF MY SET,a student worker comes up and tells me some bs about the floor getting messed up and management doesn't want people to deadlift anymore. I asked if I could keep doing it if i bought my own bumper pads so the weights never touched the ground and he STILL said no. So I reracked my wei
  16. Hi! I'm Catherine (Cutebug) and this will be my first Challenge as a Ranger. I've been indecisive about my guild and staying as an Adventurer, but I think I have found my home. My Main Goal, as always, is to LOSE WEIGHT. Challenge #1 - Cut Out Dairy (cheese and milk) for 6 weeks. This morning, while walking to work drinking my tea, I felt the usual bit of "ickiness" from drinking milk. I don't *always* feel icky or bloated when I have dairy, in fact, it's mostly only if I have lots of cold milk, but it does occasionally happen. And I thought to myself, WHY am I making myself feel icky??? T
  17. Seussey

    Bye Bye Sugar

    Time to try this Six Week Challenge thing So my workouts are going awesome and in general my food is pretty good. I just have this small sugar addiction I need to kick, so here goes nothing or better put "here goes the Sugar". Main Goal: to reduce my sugar consumption to 64g a day. Sub Goals: - Get 7 hours sleep a night - Squat 75% of my body weight - Deadlift 75% of my body weight Start weight: 103.5kg Start measurements: - Belly 102cm - Waist 96cm - Bicep 33cm - Thigh 68cm RWAR!!!!
  18. Hi.... silly question..... When you're adding up the weight you're lifting (say, in a deadlift), do you count the bar? For example, does the below photo equal 20lbs, or approximately 65lbs (depending on the weight of the bar)? I'm trying to figure out how much to start with and aim for, but I need to know how to count first! I slapped a couple 25lb "thingers" on the bar last week and deadlifted that NP....
  19. Bit late starting the challenge, oh well. Main goal: Lose the belly (this is taking a backseat for a bit though) Challenge goals: (i have no idea how achievable these are, but i'm gonna give them a damn good shot) * 3 plate deadlift for 5 reps (140kg). Starting at 120kg. This works out at 3.3kg increase per week. I deadlift twice a week so if i increment by 2.5kg i can have a few small plateaus. * 1.5xBW squat for 5 reps. Starting at 1.3. I can either drop weight, increase lift or preferably both. I should be able to drop some regained weight to put me back at about 82kg, whic
  20. 2014 was kind of an epic year. I hate that I fell off the face of the earth, but for about 3 months there I was driving 3 hours round trip each day to the new job, which kind of sucked up any time that might have been available for reading the forums and posting. We finally got moved in August, although we’re still stuck in apartment hell while we try to find a house in our price range that’s worth the pain in the ass of buying a house. 2014 highlights! Fitness Did two beginner CrossFit competitions. Was not in last place for either. Did a Spartan Super. Did not die. Had fun. Found a n
  21. The sun burned orange through her eyelids. Devyn groaned and rolled over, burying her face in the warm sand. Sand? She pushed herself up, though she was blistered and sore. The bright light shone upon the white sand, blinding her for a moment. All she could see through her tears was an ocean of white contrasting with an ocean of blue. Ocean? She rubbed her eyes and tried to slowly get used to her blinding world. The sun was hot and she felt as if she had been the subject of its fury for a while. A bird screeched through the jungle. Jungle? A sudden and worrisome thought stabbed at her brain
  22. Longtime NF reader, first time poster here. Please forgive the long-windedness. I'm currently in my first semester of Primary Care Paramedic training in Toronto, and our lift requirements have got me concerned. We're currently into our second week, but lift tests are coming up fast (week 5), and I'm only just finding out that I haven't got the strength. 3 weeks from Friday, we're supposed to do 5 different lifts with a 170-lb "patient" (weighted mannequin), and proper form requires that we squat deep (in one case, on stairs), lift, and hold a weight for an extended period of time. I'll a
  23. I’ve got 9 weeks until the Super Spartan I signed up for. I am also moving to another country 3 days after that. So my main quest this challenge is going to be further preparing for the Super and I’ll have a little side quest of getting things done to prepare for my big move. It’s going to be crazy, I am going to be busy, time is going to fly by! Last challenge I had a rough go after the halfway point, it looked like this: Week 1: 87% Week 2: 87% Week 3: 80% Week 4: 40% Week 5: 53% Week 6: 67% So this challenge I am going to add an extra rule in order to hopefully motivate me to k
  24. What, exactly? Pawning the Regimental silver? Absconding with the NAAFI funds? Dancing the Darjeeling One-Step with Minnie Bannister? No, I say! And no again! Such antics are in my past! I’m a reformed man, dedicated to a life of brutal honesty and physical creakiness! *sound of a wine cork being slowly extracted* See, that was my 750 ml deadlift! OK, I’ll stop now. (Kingclumsy’s the only guy who gets the references anyway. J) The creakiness part is true enough. I’ve spent the last two challenges over with the Druids, sorting out my physical limitations and getting guidance on how
  25. Good morning and Happy New Year, First, the woot: I can now deadlift 45 pounds, which is half my body weight. I did 8 reps with the 45# BB the other day; I probably could have done more but felt like I was about to drop the bar and did not really want to risk dropping it on my feet. Second, the Thank You: I wrote out my list of resolutions this morning, complete with specific goals and a grading system. I learned that here, and I thank Steve and Staci and all of you for that. May the Force be with us all.
