  1. "Denn wer nicht kämpft hat schon verloren; nur wer fällt steht wieder auf." "Because the one who doesn't fight has already lost; only he who falls down gets back up." "Once more onto the breach, dear friends!" Life feels like a circle, a diamond soul, a tempered mind. Iron turning into steel, steel honed to perfection, "vorwärts immer, rückwärts nimmer" (always going forward, never back). When you are lost within the fight, it all can feel like it's not worth it, at times, yet, we keep going, as the tide slowly builds up.
  2. Hi there! I'm terrible at following plans, yet I terribly need one right now. I tend to view our capacity for action as being fueld by 3 jars: availability (time) energy (mental and physical) finances The three are linked together, they can supplement or drain each other. I tend to identify the main draining factor in my situation as the financial one, though, using my job situation as a catalyst, that tends to affect my availability and then, through poor life hygiene, my energy levels. Right now, I'm overwhelmed and don't know what to
  3. Balance, in my life, has always been that elusive friend watching you from afar, giggling as you struggle, giving you a mischievous nudge when all goes well but also lifting you up in the darkest nights, when a rain of thin and sharp icicles pierces your heart. It is the fox from St-Ex's Little Prince, waiting to be befriended but running away when I try too hard. This round, I'll keep coming to see it every day, at the same time, and we'll see if we get closer by the end of it. I've got intermediate life goals: Be at home. I've gone from crappy appartment to good
  4. Hi! Feels good to be back. Long story short, life's being a battlefield and I'm trying to push on under the storm. I'm a wee little bit under PTSD (or rather during trauma stress disorder) so I'll try to keep things focused and bare. Main goal is to change job with the added constraint of it being either a pleasant one or a highway toward financial independance. I've got a road map: Let's get this done. Have fun!
  5. ‘Cause we’re not jingling all the way anywhere this year. Is it Deep Holiday Season again, already? This year has seemed interminable - and yet quick; but like it’s barely happened? Let’s get an early review in: Jan - Feb: “Normal” life; a fair bit of travel, too many nights and weekends spent eating and drinking allthethings in preparation for my local bestie skipping off to a different desert. Mar - July: Fortress of Solitude life - yoga where I had the band with for it, kicked creative projects into high gear sparked off by Animal Crossing and coloring
  6. A collection of tips and tools.
  7. It's time to challenge this up! Aw yeah! Who IS STARTING A WEEK LATE? Honestly, I really don't care when I start. I mean. Today. Today is a good day to start. You guys are already on your journeys and THAT IS OKAY. WE ALL GO AT OUR OWN PACE, JANET. I've spent a lot of time here on NF reflecting. Searching within myself for meaning and trying to find inner peace and life balance and all that crap. 2018 was a crappy year. It pushed me so far out of my comfort zone and I REALLY ate a lot of feelings. But I also talked it out a lot with a therapist,
  8. 12 Week Hypertrophy Quest Quest Goals: 1) Increase Muscle Mass 2) Decrease BF% 3) Increase Strength In All Lifts Overview/Details Each working set should be performed to near failure with 12 being the most reps you should perform and 6 being the lowest. This workout utilizes supersets.Take a 1 minute break between each superset. Supersets are grouped by letter before them. See Quest Objectives for context. Increase weight on each set by at least 5lbs. Increase weight from week to week as well. By the end of the 12 weeks, you should be 10lbs+ stronger in many
  9. When people talk about stress management, I get this image in my head of a man or woman sitting in a bar after work, her suit jacket draped on the chair and sleeves rolled up as he says confidently "I manage the stress department. Those guys are killing it!" and takes a confident swig from their glass of whiskey, neat. I don't like whiskey, and I look terrible in suits. Stress is significantly impacting my well-being. Last night I was awake for 4 hours. I have panic attacks, and while I'm usually a stress eater, lately, I've lost my appetite, and feel too upset to eat.
  10. Today they are moving my grandfather into hospice care. In the next few weeks, I'll be attending a funeral, my annoying uncle will be here, my aunt may fly in and my mother will be sad, mad, and many other things. I will be tired, and I will want to over-eat, drink too much and become anxious and self-destructive. So this challenge is simple. Be kind to myself. Instead of eating and drinking my feelings, I'm going to go for walks, play the ukulele and journal. I'm going to eat healthy foods that will make me feel better, and I will give myself permission to walk away from my fami
  11. Bye Weeks Challenge Goals Quest One - Try something new Cooking! I love cooking and am always looking for new things to try so this goal is 1 new recipe per week. Quest Two - Mini fitness goal Changed to one extra day of weight training. So Weights 2x a week: Tuesday and Sunday Quest Three - Unadulterated joy Reading for pleasure. I don't do this regularly enough . It always makes my day better so 30 minutes of reading per day. Continuing with meditation also falls under this goal. Life Quest: Finish Papers before June 3
  12. I’ve been thinking about this challenge and Feelings and well..I’m ready to take care of myself. So let’s dive in! The plan of action Follow the PCOS diet, which is basically a Paleo Plus (whole grains included) it’s a low inflammation diet and it’s really great for me. But I’m gonna give myself 2 meals a week to add something not on the diet. Because macaroni and cheese. As I move forward, I can trim it to one meal a week, then just to special occasions only. Practice yoga 4 times a week. I’m physically weak right now, and yoga will be a great step back into g

    Druids' Grove

    Welcome to the Druids' Grove. Feel free to pull up a log and have a seat by the Southern fire pit, or practice with the yoga and tai chi group on the grass by the creek to the east. If it gets too warm, there is pool at the bottom of the waterfall to the west. The grove gets thick and a bit dark towards the North, with many a stone nook that is ideal for silent meditation. Tell us, dear traveler, what brought you to the grove, and what do you hope to find while you are here?
  14. I took a break from challenges for a while. It was a really great time away for me to really wallow in a fantastic existential crisis. I got swept up in trying to be perfect, and live perfectly, and SO MANY RULES. It wasn't fun. It became really unhealthy, self-destructive and it's hard to improve your life when you really hate the way you live it. Soo.... here's a baby Moana! OMIGOSH SHE'S SO ADORABLE!!!! I had to make new long-term goals, but also I realized that the weight of a BIG goal is too much, and that it's okay to have a challenge that

  16. Welcome to SPRING! As we stretch out of the darker season, let’s join together in gratitude. Science has shown that being actively grateful can have tremendous positive effects on our health and well being, and the more we study gratitude, the more benefits we find. The basic takeaway is very simple: Be thankful to be happy. “People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune sy
  17. Welcome to the Orchard, where the Druids are gathering this Spring. Pull up a blanket or a cushion and enjoy the warming breeze as it plays through the fruit blossoms. What attracted your to the Druids? What do you hope to accomplish this turn of the challenge?
  18. Hey everyone! So, I am doing a level 1 challenge for 2/20-3/11, since I started up a little late. My goals are: Food: log food (still deciding between writing it down, logging in the battle logs, or using MFP - think I will go with logging it here in the thread actually); cut out all soda and juice, and cut down on milk consumption to 2-3x/week MAX. Fitness: incorporate bodyweight workout 1x/week to start (and keep walking, I've been doing that daily or almost daily). Life: 5 minutes of meditation per day. This is one of the keystone habits I've been struggling the m
  19. Hi! Happy New Challenge Time! Recently, I've been reading this website healthybrains.org and it's pretty straightforward. And with a new challenge coming up...well... Pillar 1. Physical Exercise- This is going to be straightforward. 40 minutes of aerobic activity 5 days a week, strength training 3 days, yoga 6 days. Just check off the boxes and get it done, Snarky. Pillar 2. Food and Nutrition- 3 meals a day with a fruit and or vegetable at each meal. I already limit red meat and cured meats, but I can cut out snacking (goodbye, you luscious cookies)
  20. Oh my gosh, that's a giant puppy. Screw it, Giant Sleepy Puppy stays. It's so cuuuuuuute. awwwwww. Let's find some other puppies.... Awwwww this one has wet paws and doesn't look like he's happy with that. WAIT WAIT WAIT....ONE MORE ONE MORE HE'S SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU!!! When I feel blue, sometimes I do an image search of puppies. I also look at puppies in waiting rooms when I'm really nervous. Looking at puppies makes me feel good. I like puppies. Is this challenge just about puppies? You know what? This challenge is ALL about

    Ice Cave

    Welcome to the druids' cave, where ice patches create intricate designs on the walls, and a fire crackles merrily in the center. Grab a fur or two and join us near the warmth. Pour a cup of tea and tell us of your journey: Where you have been What you have seen Where you hope to go What you seek.
  22. Happy New Year Everyone! I created a battle log to keep track of overall goals for 2017. My goals for January are already set, so I just copied and pasted here. 1st month goals: to lose 8 pounds run up the stairs without feeling winded Walk 2 miles a day (or 40 minutes of cardio) stop hiding food Learn ukulele chords Get Spanish fluency to 20% on Duolingo Draw every day I wanted to focus on getting something done each day. Winter is a hard time of year for me, and instead of focusing on feelings and thoughts, I'm

    Solstice Cavern

    As the year gathers itself inward to the longest night, join us by the fire in the cave. Pull up a stone to sit upon, and tell us your tale. What are your goals? Where are you going? How do you plan to get there?
  24. For this last 2016 challenge, I've got two goals. 1. Keep a journal. I really like the set up I had during Whole 30. I would write about my sleep, what I ate, track my exercise and water, and then reflect on the day. I felt like I was on top of things, and it was a great way to build habits I still do today. It was just a nice way to see what was going on, make decisions and just stay calm and focused on goals. 2. Make goals and an action plan for 2017. I have a wishlist of things I'd like to accomplish in 2017, but I think where I went wrong in 2016 was that I lacked a plan
  25. I found this design on Threadless. I think I need this Tyrannosaurus Shirt. T-Shirt. Hehehehehehe Oh man, Rexy and I have so much in common, except I don't have tiny arms, and I am no quitter. We do share a lack of flexibility and balance that is pretty hilarious. I love yoga. I can't do triangle pose without a chair, I can't do downward facing dog without bending my knees, and forget one one-legged poses. So for this challenge, I'll work in my balance, strength and flexibility and really enjoy practicing yoga and never give up. I'm also buying that tshirt. No spr
