  1. I am back! I need to work on follow through for this sort of thing! I've fizzled out on my last challenges, but travel had a bit to do with that. Travel exploded my world in the most delightful of ways. What are my goals for this challenge? Be vegan for a month. I've done it off and on, and I just want to try it, actively, for 4 weeks. I rarely do dairy, so it's not too far a jump, but being vegan forces me to focus on what I am eating, and I often am making my food anyway. Tonight starts 4 weeks of meal prep! In the Japanese bento style! I'm going to make little bento for my
  2. First 4 Week Challenge 4 Me! I'm excited. This is my first challenge, but I've been doing the NF thang for a few months now and have leveled up to Diet Level 6 and Bodyweight Workout 3A, so i sort of took the sample challenges and beefed them up a bit. The below quests are long term habits I want to build, and this seems like the opportune time to start! I've been binging a lot of Doctor Who lately, particularly during workouts, so I've decided to tailor my first 4 week story based on the wonderful wibbly wobbly stuff. 11th Doctor/Amy & Rory will be the stars of this one (along wit
  3. Last Challenge, I didn't have many concrete goals because I was living a bit vagabond-ish. This Challenge is going to be about going back to the basics of my life: sleep, practicing, food, and foundational gymnastics skills! The format will be a @maegs-style checklist of things to do every day. And the theme is going to be Tenth Doctor gifs, because, idk, that's the kinda mood I'm in. Sleep I am totally in the swing of using my sleep cycle app! My sleep goal for this Challenge is to get 8 hours or more of "time in bed." (i.e. since the app can tell when you physi
  4. And in three gifs, I sum up how my life over the past two months. I decided to quit my job to help my mental health. I experienced a whole lot of chaos with last minute job interviews, a nail biting, down-to-the-wire job offer. A much needed vacation. More chaos as I watched the perils of small start ups interfere with if I had a job. And finally, a beginning to settle down into a new circumstance, at the core the same, but now with some definite new quirks to figure out. So clearly I regenerated, and I need to learn to live with a dislike of my kidney color. Added to this, I
  5. Yup... last challenge went swimmingly until the last couple of weeks. Don't get me wrong, progress was made and I'm actually pretty happy with how the challenge turned out, but I just plain wasn't done with it. So with a few mods, it's going to look a lot like a repeat. Main Quest - slaying the anxiety dragon part 2 - poking the health problems SQ 1 - Running. Zombie Run Couch to 5K will be my coach on this, I had to stop on week 6, but it's been a couple of weeks since I ran so I'm going to go back to week 3 or 4. I'm thinking 3, less chance of injury and joint stress. SQ 2 - Food. I nee
  6. This will be my seventh challenge and in honor of that I'm looking back over my past six and pulling inspiration from them. Its a time traveling theme ... just go with it My six previous challenge have an interesting theme when you look them over. I'll leave the list under the . The theme is fairly simple ... I run, I bike, I do bootcamp/TRX, I try to limit booze, I do photography. This MIGHT have to do with my Scout philosophy. I mean really I keep doing the same ole same ole and expect to get different results ... I might be insane Well not really ... when I was marathon
  7. I'm a new Assassin!! Newly assassinated? This is my second challenge on Nerd Fitness First challenge is here, which was focused on building a workout habit. This 6 week challenge is all about leveling up on strength and kicking my bad eating habits in the ass. Accountabilibuddies wanted. Workouts Sun, Wed, Fri: Stronglifts 5x5 program Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat: yoga, swing dancing, or BOTH Goal: 18/18 weight days, 20/24 yoga/dance days Food Paleo as much as possible Non-veggies carbs are okay 2-3x/week, but cannot exceed more than one meal in one day Added sugars/desserts not allowed (72%+ dark ch
  8. I'm taking inspiration from Doctor Who for my fitness training. Companion training Necessary abilities: running away, thinking quickly, throwing the occasional punch Fitness plan: Sprinting, Yoga, Beginner Body Weight Motivation: - To run with the Doctor - Depression is a thing and if I started exercising, maybe the endorphins would help me through that - My dad was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes and I don't want that to be me Goals: Lose 2 inches on waist (or 10lbs) by Feb 15th The end of this challenge corresponds with the Gallifrey One convention and my River Song cosplay did not fit
  9. Alright, last challenge was pretty descent with all holidays etc figured in, but was also a laid back one given that holidays make certain things more difficult and I didn't want to overload my self-control bar. Main Quest - Looking at the new year (yes, I know, I hate NYResolutions too. Oh well) I have a handful of items I want to accomplish. - GRE taken & grad school aps in, resulting in starting grad school this year - Pull-ups and basic parkour by this summer. This is less aimed at the fact that I really just want to do them, and more at the fact that if I don't set a deadline and
  10. Sorry guys, TARDIS landed a week late (i.e. my computer died last Monday, so this is my first time heading to the library to catch some screen-time.) First things first - I'll put my challenge plan up, then tell y'all how last week went. Main Quest: Even in a time machine, I'm running late. Switching back to dayshift is awesome, but I need to be keeping up with everything through the next few weeks that I've let slide through my shift-transitions up till now, and that also means fewer "I'll do it later" excuses. SQ1 - Make timey-wimey, wibbly-wobbly stuff happen - be active, mentally and p
  11. Another successful journey completed. Since becoming a Time Lord companion earlier this year, I have journeyed to find the missing Tardis and then spent some quality time finding balance between Tardis maintenance and time travel. And so, here we are, on the brink of a great disturbance in time and space, and a respectable milestone of centuries. We have made it past 2002, close to crossing centuries, but something is amiss. There is danger lurking here. As the Tardis is prone to do, we have stopped in a strange place. We found ourselves aboard another ship referred to as Discovery One
  12. A simple Hobbit in Hobbiton, Kareesh never thought about going on an adventure like the well-known Bilbo Baggins. Yet, as is usually the case, adventure finds one whether they want it to or not. For Kareesh, it happened one afternoon as she was outside tending to her herbs. A strange sound reached her pointed ears. She straightened herself and looked around to see what on Middle-Earth could be making that noise. She could scarce believe her eyes. Just a few feet away from her, a giant blue box was appearing out of nowhere. It could only be this strange object that was making that stran
  13. This challenge is a bit inspired by Doctor Who. For anyone who has seen it: you know that he is great at running, doging and jumping over stuff when there is a dangerous enemy. Furthermore, he always manages to stay relatively calm during stressful situations. For those of you who have not seen it: please find some episodes to watch, it is an awesome show. I want to be more like the Doctor: I want to be able to run/dodge/move whenever I want, whether there are obstacles or not. And I want to be able to calm myself down in stressful situations. So clearly, I have to start learning parkour
  14. Hello, everyone. After spending quite a lot of time bouncing around the NF site, I think I've finally figured out what I need to include in my thread. I haven't used message boards since I was in college (2003), so I'm pretty rusty, but here goes: "Doctor Song" Main Goal: Drop 70 pounds. 1. Do the beginner bodyweight circuit 3 times per week. 2. Do at least 30 mins on my elliptical 3 times per week. 3. Reduce my carb intake so that carbs are only a small portion of my daily diet, rather than the majority. Motivation: To rock a River Song cosplay at DragonCon, either this year or next
  15. Ello, Darling! I'm Auraphlia Xero, or Aura for short. I found you guys by googling for nerdy plus size clothes. Maybe now I can just google nerdy clothes. A Little Bit About Me: Gamer: Mario, Sonic, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Prince of Persia, Super Smash Bros, Soul Calibur(Tira), Kingdom Hearts, World of Warcraft(Blood Elf Priest), Guild Wars 2(Sylvari Elementalist), and so many more, but my current obsession is Skyrim(Imperial/Onehanded/Restoration). RPGs over everything. Fandoms: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, Lost Girl, Sherlock, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and add s
  16. Running with the Doctor can be very tiresome, especially when you have a Cyberman on your tail. Your life is literally on the line when you have a Sontaran running at you, flailing his plasma weapon in your general direction. And when a Dalek performs a temporal shift and materializes right in front of you, the stress is enormous! So that’s why I’m going to work to get back into shape, and de-stress myself over the next six weeks. My life has been full of stress, which has only served to worsen my health. Most recently, I have become unemployed while dealing with health and financial probl
  17. I wanted to start a Daily Battle Log for my future use, and to post stuff that is not really relevant (necessarily) to the Nov 11 Challenge. So here it is - my battle log. I don't really want to write a long introduction about myself... I'm 27. I'm an attorney. I eat food. I should move more. Paleo is good. Doctor Who. Stargate. Harry Potter. Ender's Game. Futurama. Sharkbait oo hah hah! Yap... Okay, so I'm pretty new to NF, but I'm really digging it so far. My only problem is that I'm very "omgeez what if that person who is obvs super cool doesn't like me because I say something supes s
  18. Hello Everybody!!! I'm excited to be starting my second challenge here in the magical forums of NF. I loved the first challenge and got a real taste for what can be achieved if I just stick with a healthy and active life style. MAIN QUEST I plan to loose 5% of my overall body fat, thus fitting into my "motivational pants" of which I have two pairs. I plan to achieve this quest by building lean muscle and eating a healthy mainly Paleo diet. SUPPORTING QUESTS Strength training: 2 days on 1 day off (+5 strength to earn)Sprint at least 2 times per week (100 meters) (+2 stamina to earn)Medit
  19. Just in time for the 50th Anniversary special (and my birthday this month!) it's my wibbly wobbly, timey wimey challenge! TIME LORD style. Ooo eee ooo... (SO excited!) Epic Quest: Reduce my body fat to 24% Motivation: Increase my athleticism to improve my chances of surviving the Attack of the Cybermen, the Dalek Invasion of Earth, the Waters of Mars, or the Horror of Fang Rock To travel with the Doctor I need to: 1. Basically, RUN. "Run for your life!" You might not think it, but traveling in time and space requires some serious cardio fitness. Fortunately, I'm train
  20. Hello, fellow assassins (and Whovians)! With the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who occurring during the midst of this challenge, it seemed only fitting to tailor my challenge with a Doctor Who theme. Long-term quest: The Adipose are irrepressibly cute. But they are also 100% fat, and if I’m going to become more assassiny, some of them are going to have to go. “If you love someone, set it free!†Time for these young creatures to leave the nest. Current goals to advance the quest: 1. “Run!†At some point in many an episode, the Doctor's response to a danger is to Run!!! Acc
  21. When I read books, or watch movies and television episodes, I often find myself wondering how I would handle the life-threatening situations that the characters find themselves in. If I were Simba in the Lion King, would I be able to pull myself back up onto the edge of the cliff before Scar threw me to my death? If I were Sam Gamgee in the Return of the King, would I be able to take those last few exhausting steps up to the Crack of Doom in Mordor with Frodo's weight across my shoulders? If I were Rose Tyler, would I be able to outrun the Monster-of-the-week and make it back to the TARDIS saf
  22. So here we are again. Summer is not here but it is currently in the process of invading North Texas. We've hit the 90s so far but this challenge ends in July when the invasion will be here in full force. Here are my goals: 1. Stick to the Lift Big Eat Big programming only missing workout once every two weeks. LBEB is 5x per week. Due to my work schedule realistically, I will miss one every once and a while but I can't just skive off! Especially with the heat creeping in, I'll have to be extra diligent since I work out in my garage (no AC). STE+3, DEX+ 3, STA+2 2. Stop eating freaking pr
  23. So I've been around NF for a while but never joined the forums and never got on board with the challenges. I lift very regularly but I need to railroad tie this stuff into submission and get my snacking under control. I'm not sure what I'm really supposed to put on here.... I'm 28, 205lbs, 5'8". Bodyfat around 28 (ish ??? I don't really know). 1RM lifts: Squat 415 Deads: 455 Bench: 255 Snatch: 165 Clean: 235 OHP: 225 Goals: 1. Hit the garage 4x per week. I love to lift but at the end of a long day I'm more than often very willing to not go into my garage. I work out at home so it can
  24. I’ve seen so many people preparing for a zombie apocalypse. Personally, I know that that’s not where the danger lies. We’ll be invaded by aliens long before the zombie apocalypse happens (not that I doubt it will happen. It just won’t be first). While the zombie apocalypse is obvious and, well, apocalyptic, the alien invasion will be much more subtle. They’ll slowly begin to take over, but we won’t know about it. Which makes being prepared even more important. And even though I know the Doctor and Mulder and Scully are going to save us all from the aliens eventually, it’s up to
