  1. So, uh, I'm not entirely new to the world of fitness. I started doing more exercise about 8 months ago. I now do strength training 3 times a week, cardio 3 times a week, and martial arts 2-3 times a week. However, recently I've gotten majorly off track with my diet. Since I've been doing exercise and healthy eating basically by myself, I was hoping I could find someone online, so I wouldn't feel as lonely. I would just like someone to talk to about diet, and to make sure I'm doing my strength and cardio training correctly (since I'm doing it alone). And also to talk about Steven Universe, if t
  2. Hi all! I saw the Doodlies already have a thread, but as it's for Doodlies only I figured I'd make one for the non-Doodlies. This thread is for people looking for one or more accountabilibuddies to help them with the upcoming 4 Week Challenge. Post a link to 4WC thread, a brief overview of your goals for this challenge, and what you would like from an accountabilibuddy. Remember: You don't have to have matching goals to be an accountabilibuddy! All you need to have is some pom-poms and a willingness to cheer someone else on through the challenge.
  3. I'm pretty much a newb who has been dabbling at this for a bit. I am also making my way down this path of fitness and I'd be happy to offer encouragement and support. Sometimes I need a push in the direction of a little more structure, but I like advice and I'm open to it. I have fitness goals - namely get strong enough to do pull ups, deadlift my body weight, and lose 60lbs this year. That being said, most of my support is long distance (family in another state) while the people close, namely my husband is doing his best to be encouraging. His family (in state) is my biggest g
  4. Hi Rangers! I'm Sky Elvenword and I am here with an invitation! As part of my first Rebel challenge, I created a backstory for my character, in which she discovers her true identity as the daughter of two visionary scholars who died trying to bring enlightenment to a backward people. She joins a group of Rangers who also happen to be students or scholars; and together they are going back to the savage borderlands and try again to bring education and progress to these people (actually hobbits). I was thinking about this story last night at 1AM, and I started wondering if
  5. short time lurker, first time poster i plan on jumping on the next challenge, but for now i'm starting on my LVL 1 quests as i go from rebel to ranger! Main Quest: be able to run a 5k in the next 6 months, lose fat and gain muscle and become stronger. bonus main quest - look better while cosplaying. diet: reduce fast food/processed food by 50% i work 4am-1pm at a retail giant, so lunches are more like breakfasts and it's hard to eat healthy. time to start meal prepping at least 3 days a week! replace processed snacks with a healthy protein, fruit, o
  6. I'm told this is where I start, so here goes. I'm a drow. I grew up in the passive agressive, down and dirty, cut throat world. I learned quite a few skills there, but what I learned most of all is that I hated it. I hated the politics. I hated the backstabbing. Not to mention, I HATE lies and secrets. This dark society just wasn't for me. Problem. I had troubles with sunlight. Migraines, illness, dizziness, pain. This was the first wave of a whole slew of problems. Did you know that if you try to communicate with a surface dweller using nothing but sarcasm and passive aggression, that the
  7. Introduction: I’m Strider (yep, a Tolkien fan from way back in the day) and like the idea of how the name plays off of “small stepsâ€. I’m on the upper side of 40’s and have passed the point where my metabolism fell off and my desire for tasty food increased. Looking to lose 10+ lbs and 2 inches around my waist. I think that’s do-able in 4 weeks. To get there I’m going to: FIRST REBEL CHALLENGE: Diet Goals: · Substitute one sugary coffee drink per day for black coffee or tea. “One does not simply walk into Mordor.†No kidding! That path goes by the Keurig! ·
  8. Breakthroughers, it's our time! All those who want to better themselves, get healthy, and be a part of the best team ever welcome! Introduce yourself, tell us your challenge goal, and give us your why. I'm Jerem The Great. I'm the inventor of such wonders as the kale-puccino. My challenge goal is to hit the gym at least twice a week, lose 3% body fat, and eat better, which is all tied into bodybuilding. Why? Because late this coming summer, my wife wants to be pregnant, and I don't want to be the dad that can't play with his kid. Because my wife deserves a strong, dependable husband who is
  9. Hello everyone! My name is Carter and I am a 33 year old woman living in St. Augustine, FL. I say 'woman' as it's my birth gender, but I associate with the male gender, so there's that. I usually call myself a guy/man, etc. BUT, with that out of the way - I am glad to be here! Nice to meet everyone. I have always been a long-time athlete. From a very early age I have ALWAYS worked out, been active, eaten well, etc. I actually have taken it too far in my youth and was not only anorexic, but an exercise bulimic. I have since gotten back to weight and found a healthy balance of diet and exercise.
  10. Welcome All Who Enter Here The 6-week challenge is upon us again, are you ready? Although the time of knights and dragons is over, until we turn on the consoles and PC , we still battle against our own personal demons, dragons, monsters, and sin. This group is dedicated to keeping God first, and helping each other battle those forces of evil. After all, "Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working." (James 5:16) Just because we are soldiers under God's command doesn't
  11. Here we go again. Former 6-week challenger, fallen off the bandwagon. On-and-off runner, sometimes closing in on 10K... but never exercising with consistancy. "Skinny-fat" accountant who has made some changes but has a LONG way to go. I've made SOME progress in the time since I first joined NF... about two years ago? Three? Yikes! But consistancy has ALWAYS been a problem for me. I go for things hard and strong, burn out, and am left back where I started. Repeatedly. Year after year after.... Running? Worked up to a 5K many times over the years, pushed too hard and injured myself or caug
  12. Hello Friends! I've struggled with anxiety since my pre-teens, but wasn't diagnosed until almost a year ago. Caring for myself emotionally and mentally is essential to anyone to keep your mind, healthy. There are those who's source of their anxiety goes beyond psychological influence and comes from biological imbalances. If you believe this is you and not seen a doctor about it, then I highly you make that it top prior to meet with a therapist or psychologist cause the function of your mind results in how you will live your life. Having that said; Health and Fitness is vital in every person's
  13. So my first post, hopefully in the correct section, anyways.. In 2 days I'm going to a weekend course of Krav Maga self defence, I'm 18 and feeling nervous. I'm trying to go about it with the same mentality as a hard hat challenge. Just looking for encouragement and would love to see your stories of similar experiences. Thanks !!!
  14. This would be the second challenge for me. In the first one, I didn't reach most of my goal, but I got to know the goodness of fitness. Also, there is always a way to break through! Challenge two I'm going to work more on my attitude, in which case I will focus on my way of thinking. If you don't think in the right way, you will never get there. Main Quest: 5 pound weight loss 1. Cut down eating amount by 1/3, and eat 80% Paleo 2. Go to the gym at least 3 times a week 3. Meditation to stay positive at least 3 times a week Mini Quest: improve spoken English 1. Keep watching shows everyday

  17. Hey! I'm new to NF, and hoping to find someone to help me along the way and keep in touch via email regularly. I want to send you motivating emails too! I'm mainly trying to get fitter and stronger, and keep eating paleo!! (Because when I do I feel great, but when I don't food takes over my life and it's not pretty) I'm currently embarking on my second whole30. I love to travel, try new things and learn new skills, and I'd love to share my adventures and hear about yours too. I also love Legend of Zelda and Lord of the Rings! Please get in touch!
