  1. Jazzy started as something hit her on the head. She wished she could say that she had been meditating —she was sitting in the correct position, after all; hands on her knees, legs folded in front of her, back… slouched, chin on chest— buuuuut, she had been asleep. Not even in a very comfortable position, either. Who slept like that? He, apparently. She never knew it would be possible. She shook her head, blonde bangs falling away from her face for a brief moment before falling back into their original place. Searching for the thing that hit her, she found a bottle on the ground in front of her. She reached for it, her stomach getting in the way of reaching the bottle that really wasn’t all that far away. She grunted as she tried again, her claws just barely scratching the shiny surface, making it roll a little farther away. “Oh come on you stupid piece of—.†She rolled backwards a little then forward, onto her knees for a brief moment as she grabbed the offending bottle, then plopped right back on to her bottom, tail just barely moving out of the way. “Aha! I win, you stupid bottle,†she muttered at the bottle, holding it up for inspection. Inside it was no liquid, but a letter. What could it be? Could someone be in trouble and need help? Could it be a long lot love letter? And how had it fallen out of the sky and hit her on the head? Especially considering she was in a room, and this room had a roof. Inspired by curiosity, she pulled at the cork, her nails catching in to and pulling it out. “Come ‘ere, come ‘ere, come ‘ere you.†She shook the bottle opening towards her palm until the letter fell out. It felt… warm? And not in the ‘been sitting in the sun for a while’ kind of warm, but a living warm. She was suddenly regretting her decision to open this bottle. Well, she was here, she might as well go through with it. What could she lose by opening a warm piece of paper? Slowly uncurling it, dread growing in her chest. A light began to shine from it as she continued to uncurl it, causing Jazzy to squint and turn away from it. The light engulfed her as the final crease smoothed out and her world was gone. ************* Once upon a time, Jazzy could move easily, hop around in her fox form, taking Halloween candy from children, or just plain run around in her human form. Once upon a time, Jazzy could do gymnastics to an extent. She’d never been a full gymnast, but she could do things. Now she has hardly any balance to claim as her own. She was lucky to stay up right most of the time. Once upon a time, Jazzy knew who she was and would go out and do things. She enjoyed herself and her clothes and being seen by other people. One upon a time, Jazzy was a camera whore, taking selfies (though she hates that term) of herself and with her friends while they did things. Now hardly any pictures make it out of her, not even in her cosplays. Sometimes she remembers those once-upon-a-time days with a tear in her eye. Those days before she fell into that deep rut and barely moved from the couch. Those days before she lost herself. Sometimes she wonders who she is now and where she went. What happened to loud mouth Jazzy? What happened to confident, in-your-face, shy-but-made-friends Jazzy? Where did she go, and why can’t she be found? The old Jazzy stirs inside the current Jazzy’s chest, screaming to be let out, begging to live again. She wants to live, this new Jazzy doesn’t want to be here anymore. It’s time to find and break out the old Jazzy, bring her back to the light. ************* The orange ear twitched on top of Jazzy’s head, causing her whole face to twitch. Sunlight baked down on her face. She rolled over, wanting to escape the torture of the sky ball. Unfortunately, she was met with a face full of morning dew. Dew? Where did dew come from?! There was no dew in her bed! She jumped to her knees. Or, tried to. More like she groaned and pushed herself up as quickly as she could, staring wide eyed at the grass beneath her. The serene air was broken by a scream, and it took Jazzy a few moments to realize it had been her that screamed. This wasn’t her house. This didn’t even look like her cement forest, the place she called home. Hell, it didn’t even look like the desert she enjoyed visiting from time to time. This was… this was a meadow. She didn’t even know where the nearest meadow was. Did meadows even still exist? She spun, landing on her bum as she stared around, wide eyed. She wasn’t in California anymore. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ Well, looks like I've decided to take another stab at the Nerd Fitness boards. I did three really good challenges, then fell apart, then stopped coming on all together. In the mean time, I've completed the big challenge I took upon myself and went 365 days without soda. It was tough and I've decided that I miss root beer too much to continue not having soda. I have, though, given, up Starbucks as of April 11. So here I am, rebooting myself and doing this again. I plan to rock it this time around! Long Term Quest: Lose 140 pounds Main Quest: Lose 10 pounds 1. Eat like the locals - I don't want to count calories, but my boyfriend is helping me to set up a proper way of eating. So my goal is breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. I have very specific, 100ish calorie snacks that I can have. My boyfriend prepares and serves dinner and we have breakfast and lunch already planned out. Do this every day. 2. Following the purple brick road - My new job is a little ways from my house and I don't have a car, so I take the bus home. But to get to the bus I have to walk 8 blocks, half of them up hill. It's quite the work out, especially in this heat. This will be done 5 days a week, unless the school is closed and I don't have to go to work, or I'm sick. (This goal had to be changed because I got a new position at a new school, so I don't have the walk to the bus stop anymore) Ride the bike for 30 minutes every day. 3. Journal - This one works in one of two ways, depending on time and how I'm feeling. Both options include checking in every day. The first option is just an update about the day, maybe food pictures of dinner (cause I love my boys hoe cooking. Mmmmm). The second option is to actually write about Jazzy on her adventure. I want to try to write as much as I can so I can prep for NaNoWriMo this year, since I haven't don't it in years. Life Quest - Learn pixel art so I can teach my kids at school about pixel art and how to apply it to perler beads and eventually to cross stitch. This one will not have point assigned to it, but I wanna put it in writing so that I can hold myself responsible. Grading - On a spread sheet, each day I complete correctly will obtain a 1. At the end, each goal that is above 90% will be a pass, below that will be a fail. Reward - I will finalize points for each at another point. And a final reward... I know! One of my last challenges, I bought myself a shirt that says 'Good girls go to heaven, Bad girls go to Hell with Dean' but I failed and I've never worn the shirt. This will be my reward! Stats: Beginning weight: 292.1 lbs Current weight: 292.1 lbs Ultimate Goal weight: 150 lbs Minis: +1 CHA |
  2. I want to say thank you to everyone that helped encourage me last time, and everyone that will follow along this time. It really helps. My life atm is a bit chaotic, I have 2 more weeks of 14+ hour days. Then I should be back to a more normal schedule. My last challenge was all about maintaining some resemblance of fitness in the midst of this work schedule. I did that by incorporating some activities into my daily activity. I like that and plan to carry some over. Paint by numbers, were always fun as a kid. I also like the idea of tracking numbers ( as long as it doesn't get overly complicated.) So my goals will all be based on numbers I want to hit, stay under, or overcome. 1. Lift + body weight 3 times a week. I started lifting heavy weight 2 challenges ago and I like it. I will also use my time tested body weight routine after. I like both, and want to continue using both. Simple to judge I either do it 3 times a week or I don't. 2. Walk 10k steps everyday. I started this last challenge and I like it, so I will continue it. My phone keeps track of this for me. Again simple to judge, I did it or I didn't. 3. For F^*k sake just eat right dummy, stay under 2k calories. This is my goal from last time "This is regularly a goal for me, and I have had off and on success. I traditionally gain quite a bit of weight in Jan/feb because of my work. The plant always has an incrediable amount of junky food around since were all here so long. last challenge I stayed even. I want to eat in a deficit this time. This boils down to a will power item. I have set my self up for success with delivered meals etc. I just need to not eat junk food! Wish me luck!" Well again I have not gained or lost weight, so that is a fail last time. I plan to weigh in weekly and post it! I can't keep it a secret, someone will hold my feet to the fire I will track my food using my fitness pal, and weigh in weekly. My starting weight is 214.7lb For grading purposes, I will keep my daily food consumption to under 2k, and the weight in is just to hold me accountable. I don't want to look like a failure to all my NF buddy's. Life Goal Have fun at least 1 time a week! Work has been overly taxing. Long days, working weekends etc. I am stressed out, and tired, and bored. I will be making time to have organized fun at least once week. Go shooting, off roading, knife throwing with my buddies, watching super hero movies, card games, etc. I have lots of and interesting hobbies/friends, and I feel very disconnected from them. I want more pictures of me smiling doing what I love. TLDR; 1. lift 3 times a week 2. walk 10k steps daily 3. Eat less than 2k calories 4. Have organized fun at least once a week Again thanks for the comradely, good luck to everyone. And now for my obligatory Wile E Coyote Gif of awesome
  3. MAIN QUEST To obtain the goal I set out to accomplish when I was 16. I want to get down to 137lbs and feel good when I see myself in the mirror. I want to accomplish this before my 24th birthday.

I also want to try to run more. I was doing really well last challenge and then I kind of fell off near the end and only stuck to my 30 day challenge, then I ended up injuring myself and slowed my roll again. I hope to accomplish this and lose more than 5 pounds this time around. +2 DEX +1 CHA + 1 STR +1 STA 2) Drink Mas Agua A: Drink 5376oz in 42 days - 128oz/day, 896oz/wk B: Drink 4480oz in 35 days - 106oz/day, 747oz/wk C: Drink 2688oz in 42 days - 64oz/day, 448oz/wk D: Drink 2240oz in 35 days - 53oz/day, 374oz/wk F: Drink 1386oz in 42 days - 33oz/day 231oz/wk Last challenge I know I increased my water intake, but this challenge I have a gallon water bottle that I take with me everywhere and I plan to consume all of its' contents every day.

  4. I am glad i found this site. I have learned a bit . I really feel lost on how to move from my junk food world to the cave man world. With the holidays I love to eat. Been slowly working to move to more healthy way of living just. lost on who to follow or is there a middle ground. Like can i make my own bread and then make stuffing? Or can i make pudding using eggs and cream and raw honey? I mean i read the read they all say something different. If make my own pasta and cracker using almond flour and other nut flours? Ok so you know i am 440lbs and moving is a hard thing for me cant really get up and move much. So will this work with out alot of get up and go? One last thing Why do i feel so scared to give up my junk food? Did you all feel like that at first too? thanks for reading..
  5. So this is my first challenge, and I'll appreciate input from the Rebellion. (Repost from Challenge goals thread) I'm focusing on forming new habits, in fitness and eating. I think I should start small, because it's a long journey, and I don't want to break down partway. 1. Form a solid, three workout days a week schedule. This includes doing 10 minutes of yoga 3 times a week ( 7.5 minutes for flexibility, 2.5 minutes for abs); Angry Birds workout twice a week, and going to the gym three times a week (I've been averaging twice a week, and sometimes thrice so far). I started this this week, and the schedule is as follows: - Tuesday morning - Modified Angry Birds workout - Tuesday evening - Circuit at my gym - Curves - Thursday - same as Tuesday - Saturday - Curves circuit. This might actually be [No more] 2 goals in one. 2. Eating - I've gone paleo, not full paleo, but I cut out grains, breads, sugar, and most processed foods. The processed "foods" I use are powdered chai tea, unsweetened almond milk, kefir - plain and strawberry, kettle corn[these were a pretty easy stretch, since I've decided that it's my time to lose weight], spices, etc. I'm not sure if I can list them all. Now to keep that up for the next six weeks. In order to keep up with this, and increase my veggie intake, I'm thinking of the following schedule: - Saturdays - Buy meat, veggies and fruit from farmers market & grocery store - Chop up veggies for the week, and make veggie & fruit smoothies. Not sustainable, and I'm not passionate about them, so I'm crossing those out. Going the extra mile would be marinating the relevant meats. - Sunday - Make breakfasts and lunches for the work week. I've been sorta doing this for the past few months, but just for three days because I feared getting bored with eating the same things. If I make three dishes, this may be avoided. But I'll start with two. [These are pretty sustainable, are a stretch, and I'm happy to do them since it saves me money] 3. Start and maintain a food journal. I also started this this week. 4. Life goal: Focus on enjoying the new changes in my life. Rather than wallowing in guilt for not being able to bound up the mountain, I'll revel in making progress in small steps up that mountain. I may not have studied like I want to, but I'm expending willpower saying no to foods I should not eat, and working out even when I don't want to. So I'll take +1 WIS and Fireflower now. Start studying for an exam I've been putting off. I'm not sure if this won't be too much for me, because studying takes so much time. So it's either studying, or cleaning up my apartment. I already have a plan for this, so that might be the most appropriate goal, at least until I'm settled in my new eating and working out habits. [Well I've taken care of cleaning my apartment, and lately I've been feeling like I don't have any willpower left for studying, but it's still gnawing at me. Any advice here?] If I'm understanding this correctly, we have 15 points to distribute in the attributes right? So I'll distribute mine as follows: 1. +1 STR +1 DEX +2 STA 2. +3 CON +2 STA 3. +1 CON + 2 WIS 4. +1 STR +1 WIS +1 CHA (The +1 STR is for mental strength, since half of this fight is mental after all.) All this PLUS the win from the Mini Challenge #1 - +1 WIS and one FireFlower Yippee! Since this is still undefined I don't know what I can do here.
