  1. Hi there! I realize how basic this question is and don't worry, I know that nobody here is a doctor so I'm not going to look for medical opinions or take anything as fact! I know when to and when not to push myself; after all, I've had this a long while now. The low down; I have a health issue that means I've lost a lot of weight, find myself stuck in bed up to 18 hours a day and dizzy and fatigued. I do have a few hours or, if I'm lucky, a day, in which I feel energized again. It can vary. There is treatment and surgery on the table so I'm waiting for that; once that happens I oug
  2. We Meet Again... The Goats are BACK! I mean, did they leave? No. But they're back like, officially back. Edited: after a week and a half of the reality of my life hitting me in the face, I've edited this challenge down to my top priorities: Work and Health. Baby steps to the end goat. Maybe later I can incorporate those other goals, but my plate is full. Goat 1: Draw 2 hours, 5 days a week -I’ve had major artist block this summer. This is #1 for a reason. If I don't draw, I don't work. I need work! Van Goat Goat
  3. How's that for a catchy thread title?? I'm Shenani, mom of three, and in need of a health overhaul. Any other parents of wee ones here? My husband is a HUGE nerd, but this is my first foray into nerdery! I'm excited! Question: the Druids is where my heart is, but I've done yoga and meditated for many years. Should I join something more out of my comfort zone? Or stick with what I know?
  4. Rebooting Again...Really? The shit really hit the fans this time. Holy cow has my life changed and required a lot of evaluation. If you check my character page or my blog you'll get all the gritty details. TL;DR Leg pain = doctor's visit = diagnosed as diabetic = still no answer on leg pain. But like always, I pick up the pieces and move on. I have decided to make my quest more epic and bigger. I now have larger goals that are truly big picture that will be broken down into easier to achieve chunks. I now identify as a druid, I've
  5. Hello, one and all, and welcome to my fourth challenge! I'm a little bit late posting this because my silly internet-shire portal wasn't working, and wouldn't allow me to post! For those of you who have followed me in the past, you know that my previous challenge started out strong, but then ended with a whimper and a *poof!* But NO MORE!!! I will make a lasting change in my life and it will start here! So without further ado, welcome to my little hobbit-hole and please enjoy my challenge ​Elven Vitality: ​For my first quest of this challenge, I will be seeking to gain the vitalit
  6. NEW CHALLENGE!!! Last month, I stretched, I cleaned out my closet, stretched daily, took care of my feet, drank more water and defeated a really hard art deadline. During February, I also started doing body weight exercises consistently, and the results from that and the challenge were great. It feels really good to celebrate non-scale victories. It became clear to me that in 2015, I focused too much on restrictions, and becoming smaller. But my world became small, and I found that I felt smaller on the inside while my waistline became bigger. So I put away the scale, and I put away the m
  7. We come back to another round with the Druids. The days are starting to stretch their light out, moving toward balance. Come, pull up a cushion, pour some tea and tell me about your quest. As the earth spins toward the Equinox, what are you working on?
  8. Hello rebels! I did things a little backwards and posted in the challenge section because I was so excited to participate. Then I realized I never even introduced myself, D'oh! But better late than never. I stared at the empty box to type for a while till I could calm the tidal wave of anxiety and now here I am posting again! I'm Syd, 22 years old, female. I get self conscious very easily, (even when posting on the internet!) so one of my major goals is to work on my self confidence.Seriously I took voice lessons for 8+ years and still have never sung for my parents (lol but also ) I'
  9. Hello ladies and gents! I am Calanthia Cobbin of Overhill, a hobbit of the Shire with a desire for adventure and travel! I am truly an Assassin at Heart, however right now my goals align more closely with the Druids, so I hope you all don't mind if I visit for a short time I've been naming my challenges off of chapters in Lord of the Rings, and this is my third challenge, which happens to also coincide with the third chapter of The Fellowship of the Ring, titled "Three is Company," hence the Topic title. *For those of you who don't like blocks of text, the tl;dr version of this post con
  10. I'm Snarkyfishguts, and I'm new to the Druids. Hi everyone! I like the Druids because after reading about the general aims of the group, I thought "that aligns with my goals!" I took some time off from nerdfitness (and a lot of my life) to take care of myself. My PCOS was out of control, I was severely depressed, and I didn't know how to fix it, I just knew I had to stop rushing forward, look around me and address what was happening in my life at that moment. Sparing you the details, I eventually got my PCOS under control, my depression is a very low level, and I'm dealing with my everyday l
  11. Druids, how was your January? Pull up a cushion, grab a mug of tea, and tell us how the challenge went. What were your successes? What caused stumbles? What surprises did you find along the way? And of course, please share your insights. What did you learn? Will you be carrying pieces from January into February's challenge? Will you be with the Druids next round or will you visit a different guild, and why? Feel free to link to your February challenge in your reply.
  12. Greeting, friends. This challenge sees me returning to an older ethic of diet and exercise while continuing to cultivate musical skills. In many ways, it represents a return to the things that surrounded me in childhood -- music, imagination, natural exercise and my grandmother's garden. Like one or two others, I've chosen to also renew an interest in the elements to frame the work: Earth: Body. Focus on Nutrition Following the best advice I've ever seen via 'In Defense of Food' - eat (real) food, not too much, mostly plants - my goals are: 1. Plant-based food in every meal, eaten first. 2.
  13. "This battle isn't going very well, Doc. Any suggesti..." "Mega Man!? Rock! Come in my boy" A final shot took out the Blue Bomber. Time to try it again. I have been largely absent from the boards recently and I could give excuses until I was blue in the face (see what I did there?), but I wont. I'm ready to continue. I have a few goals for this challenge and as an added bonus, I have inspired my family to start one as well, albeit offline. Joining me offline is my mother, my step father, Pizzazz, Jitters Junior and Jitter Bug. It's going to be a great year! I'm going to workout 3
  14. For this challenge I'm going to take on something that I find very difficult: Being gentle but disciplined, rather than swinging madly between extremes of bravada and exhaustion. I have a nasty tendency to push too hard, particularly physically, then go *splat* for a few days and feel guilty for not doing anything. It's obviously not the best way to do things, so I'm going to try something different. Main quest: Get into the habit of doing simple, low-stress and knees-safe fitness with yoga, Pilates, isometric exercise and whatever else is appropriate, with particular emphasis on building
  15. HI! I'm not really sure what to put here but I heard that it was good to have a battle log to keep you motivated. Hopefully you'll bear with me while I figure this out. I'm always open for suggestions and new ideas. Here goes nothing. I've tried and failed in the past to get healthy. Last year I really committed to it but then had to stop working out due to constantly hurting myself. I finally went to a doctor to get checked out (due to encouragement and a fair pit of coercion by my now-husband). It turned out that I had congenital hip dysplasia. Basically my hips never formed correctly. I w
  16. Name: NikaNika Level: 3.5 Note: Almost didn't write this today... but feel like I should. I will be taking my last session's challenges and minimizing the goals to be more narrowed/specific, as well as focus on losing weight because I am entirely frustrated with my body. Recently got a scale to more accurately track my weight as well, since guessing and avoiding scales appears to have backfired for me.

  17. Greetings, friends. Since the last challenge in which I participated, I have moved even further south in SoCal, switched offices (thus the move), and inherited a whole new daily routine. For this challenge, I'm re-establishing my regular workouts, tweaking diet, and restoring meditation/yoga to its rightful place. Here's the latest iteration: Body: I recently took the plunge and bought a no-kidding Concept 2 rower. I love the thing, so now it has joined the TRX and emergency treadmill in my home gym. There is a half-olympic pool in the building behind my office, so that lends itself to regular
  18. I recently started a new factory job. Im on feet for 8 hours a day. Its by no means hard physical work i take parts (plastic car mirror parts) off a racks and turn around and put them in totes. But i am sore because my body isnt used to standing 8 hours straight. Do you druids think i would benifit from a few poses (no more than 5 or 10 minutes 445 is early and thats when i have to leave!!) If so what poses do you recommend?
  19. She gazes, eyes wide with wonder, at the shimmering apparition of a face staring back at her. It is that of a young skinny girl; ears pointed, pale of skin and with curious eyes. The strange girl's shoulders rest and an arm tentatively reaches out - but just as her fingers brush the surface of the crystal-clear water, her reflection evaporates ripple-by-ripple. An eager smile creeps its way onto her lips. This girl stands tall, eyes drifting skyward, hands crossed like wings above her own kingfisher heart. Her eyes sparkle. Her face beams; "Let the adventure begin", she whispers with a gri
  20. Onwards to another challenge ! : Food : Intermittent fasting. I'll be eating only in a time span of 9hours; basically from 9-18.

  21. I'm going to get right down to business with the start of the next 6WC. I will be posting a bit more information about me on a health-level so that I can keep myself accountable and on the right track. Hypothesis One: Twenty minutes of Yoga every day for six weeks. You will notice that this remains the same as my previous challenge. After much thought, I wanted to keep this goal. I did not accomplish 20 minutes every day for every week and I know I can do that. I considered upping the amount of time from 20 to 30; however, I want to be able to maintain the daily exercise at the 20 minutes
  22. ev·o·lu·tion (noun) the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form. Synonyms: development, advancement, growth, rise, progress, expansion, unfolding Hello! I am GryffindorGoddess - or GG - and this is my first challenge. I know most people start with the Recruits on their first challenge, but I really feel like I belong here. I am evolving. Slowly. But I am. I am making changes in my life that will help me to grow in to the strong, healthy, and amazing woman that I know I can be. I am looking forward to the changes that will come, to the new experien
  23. "Climb to the top of the world" System reboot initiated. ProtoJitters online. Battle program found. Upload previous missions. ... Upload failed. The latest newsletter from Steve had a link to an article he wrote about putting fitness first and being selfish about it. For those of you who are not new to my challenges knows that this is not me. I have a huge problem not putting others first; especially my family. To me, they take priority in my life, even if it means that I suffer. "And as you stand tall, you will see..." This challenge, I will break that cycle. I will find
  24. Greetings, Druids (and other welcome guests)! This is my fourth challenge, I think...though I'm not really keeping track. It's been a little over a year since I joined NF, and it's been a good one, so I'm focusing more on enjoying this community. Welcome to my little thread. This focus is threefold: maintenance, mindfulness, and music. Maintenance: I'm aiming to maintain the workout regimen that has been pretty successful to date, so that I continue to grow in strength, toughness, and flexibility. Workout 6x per week: 3x strength (M-W-F) 3x cardio (T-Th-Sa)
