  1. Annyshay always knew she was a hobbit. She was born in a sleepy farming town of the Shire. As a young hobbit, she worked the land with her family. Her nose was often firmly wedged in a book, and she fancied herself quite the scholar. When turmoil split her family asunder, she began her apprenticeship and long quest to live a good life. For years, Annyshay found her hobbit-y nature at odds with her training and quest. The confused hobbit struggled through periods of being “good” and keeping perfectionistic track of everything she did. Inevitably, she would lose momentum and return to the
  2. Annyshay... Wake up... Annyshay, the chosen one... I am Rauru, one of the ancient sages who built the Temple of Time to protect the entrance to the Sacred Realm... This is the Chamber of Sages, inside the Temple of Light... The Temple of Light, situated in the very center of the Sacred Realm, is the last stronghold against the Ganondorf's evil forces.
  3. Annyshay stumbles into her home and lets her pack fall heavily to the ground. Dragon greets her with his usual warmth and demands to be fed. Once Dragon's needs are attended to, Annyshay sheds her cloak and boots. She sinks into her well-worn chair and reaches for the scroll emblazoned with "For the Rebellion!" She sighs as some scenes from the last few weeks flash in front of her eyes - political unrest, friends consumed by despair, and harsh words that cannot be unsaid. The flashes of memory threaten to fill her mind with regret and worry, but Dragon jumps onto her lap and tries to insert hi
  4. It's time for a new challenge! During the last challenge, I put up the Foxy Business, and the company's kicked off pretty nicely. I learned new things, and it's time to modify the business strategy! Where are we now? I've dealt with a bunch of emotional baggage, and I'm in a better place than two months ago. My stress levels have been very low for many weeks, and I'm noticing a huge change in my energy levels! I don't know how much I weigh, currently, but I'm taking a break from calorie counting and the scale during this challenge. Usually, when
  5. Welcome friends and visitors! My name is annyshay (Shannon IRL for new Camp Nerd Fitness - CNF - friends). I'm a thirty-something single physician currently subspecializing in Infectious Disease (aka germs and how to kill them) for children and adults in Minneapolis. I joined the Rebellion in 2012 and have been leveling up in various ways since then. Work and depression recently conspired to undo much of my progress related to body composition, but these forces of darkness could not undo my Fellowship of Rebels or the mental and emotional progress that I made over the last 4 years. I respawned
  6. I have a fairly strong mental image of what a "treat" is. I'm sure you have a similar one. My current paradigm of a what a "treat" is does not serve my ultimate goals. The hope this challenge is to replace my mental image of a Hobbit Treat with THIS... NOT THIS... Main Quest - Be awesome (resilient and radiant), so that I can love and serve others. I've been with NF a long, long time through ups and downs. Many of you have walked with me through them, and I appreciate your support and friendship more than I can say. The Rebellion
  7. Welcome to my new home! After two years of NF challenges I decided to try something different. I am currently at a point in my life where daily movement practice isn't much of a challenge (as long as I'm not on vacation or sick, that is...), and I have found things that I actually like to do. I have become a fan of the GMB courses and have just finished 7 weeks of Elements. I may take the rest of this week "off" while I'm trying to get rid of the remnants of a cold and a crick in the neck, while I decide where to go from here. My options are: Another round of Elements (7 weeks, mostly Bear
  8. Instead of challenges I'm switching to this method for a bit. That way I can have some kind of accountability and still be part of the forums. I have a respawn post I made if u want a back story. So let's just jump right in. Today I had coffee, heavy cream but no sugar. Keeping sugar out of my coffee is ONE good thing I have stuck with. As a hungry as I am now, I am fighting the urge for fast food and just eat the healthier lunch I brought. And I had a delicious breakfast of pecans, banana, and cottage cheese. Better than the sausage and biscuit I've been craving. A few good things today.
  9. Hi Rebels! Ensi here I'm a 23-year-old Rebel from Finland. I've been around for a couple of years, done a few challenges and found a place among wonderful people. Right now I'm very busy with my studies, so instead of participating in the next NF challenge, I'm going to put up a battle log... Which you're reading right now! I like to keep things simple and short, so here's what I do: - The Sweetest Day of the Week I'm a bit of a chocolate addict. I've been working on it since last summer, and I've reached a level where I can deal with having a small portion of cho
  10. Sometimes it's important to refocus and respawn... I've chosen to respond to a lot of the chaos and sadness in my life with anger. It's not going the way I would like... It's time to recommit myself to mindfulness.
  11. Rebel's log Challenge Date: 2/7/16 Today was a miracle. I was supposed to get together w/a cousin at a fast food place today. We set this meeting up a week ago. I went through the whole week thinking i was going to go over my allowed quota but this morning she called to cancel. A blessing in disguise i suppose. But went through a litany of emotions afterwards. Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is more powerful than i thought. I took a fellow rebel's advice and just had a glass of water to take the edge off. Seemed to help. Another fellow rebel, Fleaball made me realize, i may be failin
  12. Anyone have any suggestions on how to combat emotional eating?
  13. Hello everyone I've been an assassin for my last several challenges, but I am here to work on getting a steady diet of iron in my workouts. Main Quest: I'm getting married in July and I would like to fit into my wedding dress. Steady relationship weight and the holidays have not been kind to me and I need to get into some sustainable habits that will allow me to hopefully drop some body fat before the big day. I think 20 lbs is not unreasonable. Quest 1: Go to the gym & lift weights 3x a week. I have some trainer appointments to use up, and then my fiancee and I are doing Strongl
  14. Hey Monks and Monk-ettes! (and any non-monk fellow rebels who grace us with their presence). I took off on my own last challenge but I’m back for some of that motivation and encouragement that only Nerd Fitness can give! During my last challenge, I learned that I tend to run into a lot of trouble when I focus on on NOT doing things - when I set hard limits on the amount of food I eat or tell myself that I will not eat this certain food. I do much better when I focus on adding healthy things rather than subtracting unhealthy things. When I’m doing the things that keep me healthy and ha
  15. Posting this fashionably late, as always. This dragon will be the death of me! I am coming into this challenge with very little to almost no motivation at all. I thought about skipping it but then I would feel much worse in the long run. I have relapsed completely on my morning routine since the last challenge but I want to pick it up again. Quests 1. Practice mindful eating habits. No eating while standing, continue to not eat while gaming or watching tv. Focus on the food and nothing else for at least one meal a day. WIS + 3, WIL + 2 2. Track my food intake using FatSecret I
  16. I think it's been a whole year since I last did a challenge here. I've been working on my diet and lifestyle since then and made very steady but continuous progress - including losing 18 pounds in weight - I've gone from overweight to a healthy weight. Now it's time to consolidate and maybe even punch it up. My life goal - to be a good role model for my son in having a healthy lifestyle. I want to be the sort of mum who joins in all of the beach cricket games and the soccer games in the park, and who models a healthy relationship with food and exercise. And I just want to enjoy it all. Like
  17. My main quest currently is to regain a healthy state, as an individual who cares for herself by eating nourishing food, exercising daily, managing stress, and taking time to relax and reflect. One indicator of reaching my goal, this healthy state, will be maintaining a healthy BMI. My BMI is currently 41.7 and it should be no higher than 24.9. There is a long road between where I stand today and where I want to be. But I’ve overcome far greater challenges in my past, and by taking one step at a time, I will complete my quest. Until the next challenge begins, I will start with some teeny,
  18. Hi everyone! I'm Ensi, a 23-year-old Rebel from Finland. This is my third challenge since my Reboot and I'm very excited to start another challenge! What you'll find here: · hormone friendly eating (I have PCOS) · dealing with emotional eating (mostly due to boredom or stress) · chocoholism · strength training at home and gym · fangirling · studying! "Sisu" in Finnish basically means "to not give in when faced with difficulties, to exceed oneself". I'm going to keep a positive attitude and see where that takes me! The Sweetest Day
  19. Here is my respawn story: I start everything with good intentions, I have an idea, it's not unrealistic but it's never easy. I make a plan and then I fall off. and then the shame and guilt sets in and I want to hide under a rock to avoid dealing with the people I so proudly told my goals and now I have to tell them I fell off the wagon. Now this time I made a huge goal and told people, and now I am super embarrassed, (if you have been following my challenges then you'll know this already) I want to join the Royal Canadian Mountain Police. Whoot! but I need to get in shape, because well it'
  20. Hi y'all! I am starting this as a daily thread to encourage myself and anyone else who wants to show more love to their bodies and/or improve their relationship with food. How It Works:Every day, you find the thread (click "follow this thread" the red button on the top right of the thread page) and post one or more positive comments about your body and/or a positive thing involving your relationship with food. Who Can Participate: Anyone, regardless of level or guild, from the day you join the Rebellion until the day you leave us. What Else Do I Need To Know: There may be levels added f
  21. Main Quest – Become Resilient People have accused me of becoming “consistent†over the last challenge. Sadly, this remains a struggle for me. Over the last few years, I’ve learned what works to keep me happy and healthy. Far too often, I wander astray because I “deserve some time off†or want to pursue some shiny new method or goal. Time to develop persistence and focus like Batman. Time to bounce back from setbacks even stronger and wiser. Time to become resilient. (BTW, grading = >90% - A 75-89% - B 50-74% - C <49% - F) 1) The Training is
  22. Alrighty, then! The past weeks have shown me that when life gets busy, some things just don't work on auto-pilot yet. Like keeping the Sugar Monster in check. Or taking care of myself. Since things will still be quite busy for me in the immediate future, I'll keep the first two goals from the last challenge: 1. Keep the Sugar Monster at bay +2 CON +2 WIS Again I'll aim for 21 out of 42 days without any added sugar / sweets / candy / cake / desserts... As before, fruit and reasonable amounts of honey or maple syrup are allowed. 2. Keep moving +2 STA +2 DEX My KB class will continue until th
  23. I literally just discovered this app. Its for tracking your eating and your feeling about said meals in order to assist with recovery. I also suspect that it could help emotional eaters as well. I'm so happy a thing like this exists that I could cry. Here's the thing: http://agent-hardass.tumblr.com/post/74572671447/recovery-record-is-the-smart-companion-for
  24. Hello all, I'm new around here. I am getting married in 3.5 months and my fiancée and I are both using the app Lose It! to track calories. It is working well, but about once a week my rebellious streak kicks in and I give in. This usually happens when I have a lot of job related stress. It feels like I'm an animal in a cage that is trying to break free. To me overeating junk and throwing caution to the wind is my mind's idea of how to be "free." Yes, I know that doesn't make logical sense but it is how things work in my mind. Two days ago I ate double my daily allotment for calories. I was
