  1. Welcome back for another episode of The Exciting Adventures of JediNickD! It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away that I joined this site and started my first challenge.. World 1 was my first extended stay through 22 challenges. I took a hiatus from NF and came back with a new direction for my goals where I warped to World 2, which I defeated in a Boss Fight slaying some mighty big goals. In World 3, I continue to develop my fitness, getting my body in the best shape of my life, even with the Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis, Disc Fissures, and more. Through physical thera
  2. This picture always seems to resonate with me because - well - it's hard to explain, but I'll try. I wish that I would meet a girl who would see past all the pain, scars, and anxiety I have. I wish that I would meet a girl who would see past all of the defensive walls I put up when things start to look up. You see, I met someone - someone I really am starting to like and I can feel those defenses coming up again. Those feelings of "wanting" to push her away. I don't really want to push her away, but I start to do these things anyways. I know it's because I'm scared of g
  3. Not entirely relevant to the Challenge itself, but kind of important. There might be some SongSpam this time around just because I decided to make a Positive Song Playlist. For, uh, science. <.< Anyway. Recap: Week One was okay last time, Week Two was Better, and then I epically crashed and burned in Week Three under the weight of feelings I still don't fully understand. This whole 'life' thing just sometimes feels like more than I'm interested in dealing with. As typically happens, that particular thought is now receding and the motivation to Do All The Things is returning. I'm not
  4. Howdy from Montana! My character name is Sagiquarion, but you can call me "J" or Justin. I'm a former World of Warcraft junkie, transformers collector, and love playing magic the gathering with friends. I like long walks with a great podcast or book, super curious everything and have a decent job. But something is really wrong, like, depressingly wrong. I'm here because I'm at a crossroads in my life and I don't know which way to go. I'm 36 and still figuring out what I want to do when I grow up. I'm tired of being afraid to make "the wrong choice" ya kno

  6. It's good to have a list of successes. It helps to look back to gain courage to move forward. Today .... minor ..... But I finished BBWW 2! Some exercises are still modified.
  7. "Pick up the pieces and keep going, one painfully slow step at a time." -Hiraedd, The Conqueress (Bare bones, to be elaborated later. It's certainly quite blunt as it is now. But it's written, and I'll work from there.) 1) A task a day A distance net-course due 30th of June, and another 30th of July. Marketing law and Strategic marketing. Soft deadline aimed at 21st of each month to give some space to maneuver. 2) Honorable Order of Rebellious Appraising Yeomen and Gratitude statements Positive, honest self-appraisal. Once a day. --> HOoRAY Things outside yourself that I am gratef
  8. A fair warning: This thread may still contain thoughts of suicide, depression, and dark and sad emotions. I feel I cannot and do not want to clean those away. To me, fluffing it away would be a another kind of lie. It is not wise to be so immensely honest. I probably going to tell things other people would think thrice to tell anyone. If I ever am going to make waves and go out in the public to do great things, some bastard (or worse...) is going to look out for my weaknesses, and use them against me. There are people like that. But there is also people who this will help, and give strength
  9. How is everyone? My name is Scat the Scaredy-Cat. I actually signed up for this forum a week ago and didn't realize until today that I still hadn't properly introduced myself. I apologize for being an accidental-creeper. I have been following Steve's blog for about a year and absolutely love it! I thought that it would be fun to create a character and role-play as I try to meet my new lifestyle goals! The changes I want to meet are just a bit out of defiance (I'll explain this more in my Battle Log, which I will link to later.) and I took it as a sign that a support community dubbed "The Rebel
  10. Fear. Fear sucks. We all experience it at one point or another, for some of us it is a constant companion that we use as a crutch to hold ourselves back. A couple of years ago I decided that I would no longer let my fear control me, but instead face it with both eyes open. It has been a painful challenge. However, I have achieved some small victories, and suffered a few set backs. BUT, I am still committed to this goal. I can only walk one step at a time, and that is what I shall do. This step is moving up in rank in TKD. Motivation: “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is t
  11. Right, I actually got a gym membership today. Starting Saturday and lasting until at least the end of September. I'm totally freaked out and I have no idea what to expect. What can I expect? Am I expected to know anything, or is that part of what I'm going to pay $45 every month for? Or is that what these personal trainers do? Will the gym working people be insulted if I ask them for help? I need help with learning how to do exercises with proper form, and I need help with learning when to stop an exercise and I need to learn how not to quit once I reached my short-term goal. Further on, I
  12. Dear All, thanks to this forum I have started my journey to improve my fitness. Since my first post in 2011 I am fitter, slimmer and stronger. BUT there is still something that bothers me a lot and while I do not expect to solve it in one day, I hope to get some feedback from you that can guide me towards the right direction. Since more or less forever I have a sense of anxiety and a sort of continuous fear that something bad could happen to me and my family. Those fears are almost always completely unmotivated but still they can occupy my mind for long time; Those fears usually are toward
  13. Hello NF! It’s been far too long! My fault, but I’m going to make a sincere effort not to fail this time. Here’s the background short version -- I’m 29 years old. I had a stroke at 28 and it SUCKED. I got physical therapy and made dietary changes that helped me bounce back and recover from that completely. (YAY for no long term damage!) I’ve got two kids, 10 and 3, who are my pride and joy. I’ve got a wonderful wife who loves and supports me. This site changed my life in November of 2012. I lost quite a bit of weight, learned about this amazing thing called parkour and
  14. Hi all, I typically currently do Starting Strength at the gym. SS calls for powercleans. I've learned most things from the book and then checked my form with good youtube vids ect. but I'm terrified to try the power clean. I'm 5'6 and fairly small and my upper body is not particularly strong (although much stronger than two months ago when I started the program) and I'm terrified of doing the power clean. I've contacted an SS trainer to teach me but I'm even afraid to meet with him because I'm so afraid that I'm such a klutz that I'll seriously hurt myself. Anyone who does olympic lifts, ho
  15. The rain fell heavily against the stone as Fear made his way up the mountain pass to where his dojo was located... The journey had been long and full of pain... It had taken it's toll on Fear, emotionally and physically... Rounding the bend, he found nothing but ruins. A fire had burned the entire place to the ground. Based on the state of things, it had been this way for some time... Fear fell to his knees, feeling that terrible loss, screaming out in rage! Why! Why had so many things, people, places that were dear to him been taken away in such a short time! "What have I done wrong!"
  16. Ah Paleo...something that almost scares me shitless. I have an associate that is on the Paleo diet and she loves it. She's also lost quite a bit of weight that is pretty noticeable. I know she's lost weight because of her massive diet change coupled with working but I'm jealous, in a good way. I wanna do that. I know I can but I'm scared. Not that Paleo is a fad, it's actually a way of life that works. But please sweet baby Jesus, don't take away my sugar and grains. I love those two things more than a lot of things. And I mean a lot. I FREAKING LOVE THEM. I also find joy in baking (most t
  17. Last challenge was tough for me. I had a lot of stuff happen in life and I realized my coping skills leave much to be desired. I relied heavily on food for self-medicating and whiskey for forgetting, trading useful daylight hours for laying in bed way too long, and generally living mostly immobilized by fear. Living from a place of fear has meant that my reaction time is lightning fast, my fight-or-flight system is on hyperdrive, my responses to life are often irrational, and I care too much about things I can't control. At the root is ultimately fear of pain, be it physical, emotional, sp
  18. I was interviewed and accepted into a Shaolin Kung Fu school! The school only takes 4 new students a year and I'm 1/4. SOOOOO Happy! WOOT! Thanks for sharing in my joy for a few NF! Oh yeah, and I've kept off the 30+ lbs I lost last 6 week challenge! (Started last October) So WOOT x2! - Fear
  19. Well, after that melodramatic title, I can only imagine what you must be expecting from this post. ALAS! This shall be anticlimactic! I am at an interesting point in my life. I am 25 years old, 5'8" tall, female, a university student (Bachelor's of Science in Biology;Pre-Med), and an avid metal head. Five years ago,I weighed 320lbs. Today, I weigh ~185lbs. (read* I have lost 135lbs). This is all through diet, as I have always been fairly active. My waist measurement used to be 48 inches, and is now 33 inches. that is JUST my waist, folks... -15 inches. Previous body fat = above 45% (doctor
