  1. Last challenge got a little rough about halfway through, but I got a solid framework built to work on I think. Explanation on the proposal I submitted, TL;DR I asked for more help in the team at work So, that's staying exactly the same. SQ1 - Doing yoga before work (4/week) I'm going to try to get this more consistent this round, basically. I had about a 50% rate on this one last challenge, but on the days i've done it I have definitely noticed a difference. SQ2 - Food prep on days off (2/wk) Prepping a lunch to go with me to work for the
  2. Acute systems failure due to known glitches with the 202.0 program. Please reboot your system and apply the 202.1 patch. (More details on 202.0 crash here) So far, the 202.1 patch & update is working much better on my end - I'm halfway through a 30 days of yoga series (which is probably the longest I've continued a workout series in years), am back on a 4*10hr shift schedule which is making food prep much easier for me to handle, and I got myself a Fitbit which is a very bossy little helper that also helps keep me on track. So now that last month didn't (entirely) suck, ti
  3. I got a little buried under work last time (or two... or three) I tried to do a challenge, so time to give it another try. It would be a lot to try to explain here, but long story short I went from functionally being the only person doing my job (it's a 2 person job and the other person wasn't interested in actually working) to literally being the only person in my job for a few months, which also meant I was pulling some crazy long weeks. This is thankfully no longer the case, and the person working with me now is doing a fantastic job so far and eager to help out, me
  4. Hi Nurds. Since we have an all-guild mashup, I'm going to go ahead a re-re-introduce myself. I'm Chris Tarly. Up until the beginning of last challenge, I was known as Curl Brogo (among other names, check my sig). I joined NF 6 friggin years ago as an overweight grad student. Over those six years there have been many trials and tribulations over weight loss, becoming a massive beefcake, then anxiety and depression, and getting through days with jobs I hate and family members who annoy me (I did the move back home thing a few years ago, it was not fun). I've spent a lot o
  5. This is the last challenge before the challenge that includes the kettlebell sport world championship.. and it's a busy challenge in it's own right, I've got our own annual competition coming up (april 6th) a training camp hosted by yours truly right after and a terribly timed weekend away with family before all that. What's kettlebell sport you ask? Well.. doing this (first jerk, then snatch) for 10 minutes, for as many reps as possible without putting the bell down. Or switching hands more than once on snatch. What needs to happen is making sure my head does
  6. Well, last challenge had one win, several losses. I'm pretty okay with that. This cycle: maintain, 3 workouts a week. Bonus - add an extra. I'm reaching the misery equilibrium where being sore is normal. I'm starting to recover well enough to push harder or add another workout. Tai Chi - time to go introduce myself. It seems like the norm is to find people face to face - phone calls and texts are not going to work. Oh well, adventure time! Goal is to make first contact and start classes! Food prep - once more unto the breach dear Nerds! Eat mor
  7. So, I skipped last month because I was starting to burn out on tracking ALL THE THINGS. So I tracked mostly none of the things (kept up with weight lifting tracking tho), and now I'm a little more refreshed after vacation (and a little over sugared tbh, 'cause birfday). And now I want to solidify some progress! Fun stuff this month: - I'm doing Aerial Silks for the first time on the 22nd! I'M SO EXCITED - PixelPop festival is at the end of the challenge. I don't have a booth this time, I'm going to go JUST to go! Fitness So, when I started at the Acad
  8. This challenge is going to be a bit of a regrouping challenge. I spent last challenge with the druids - developing good sleep habits and learning some yoga by doing 30-60min of yoga videos every day. It went really well, and so now I feel like I can stop focusing on sleep for a while (finally!) and I will wind back the yoga so I'm doing a more sustainable amount (short sessions 5x a week). It is surprising how much extra flexibility I have already! I also know my strong points and weak points now. So my yoga for this challenge will be targeted - my shoulders are really bad it turns
  9. earth: build something Shit is going down, but I am not. I have just started a new chapter of my life and even though I’ve been hit with a bit of an emotional sledgehammer, it’s a stumble, not a fall, and as long as I keep moving I will get through it. So I devised a plan that would keep me moving, and from that plan I cobbled together a challenge. Admittedly most of what I’m doing will be tracked using my battlelog, but there were a few things that I picked out as especially important that I achieve ASAP for one reason or another, and that’s where the challenge
  10. I have ALWAYS, ALWAYS, wanted to be Batgirl. Not just any Batgirl, but 1960's Barbara Gordon librarian-by-day and badass-by-night Batgirl. I used to watch re-runs of the old Batman show when I was little and found a hero in Batgirl. I would ride my bike around the neighborhood pretending it was a batcycle and I was catching bad guys. So, I'm calling upon this dream to be my motivation for the challenge. _____________________________________________________________ Goal # 1: Get a part-time job as a Library Assistant.
  11. On the agenda for this challenge: Dog sitting three lovely dogs from Feb. 19 - March 9 Continue preparing for my return to England for a PhD Hopefully get my passport and visa back so I can schedule my flight Goal 1: Sleep hygiene Screen curfew at 8 pm (7:30 pm if I still need to shower before bed) all the nights. Meditate for 10+ minutes before bed 6x/week. Exception: *After* I get ready for bed, I can Skype my boyfriend for a total of three hours past my curfew, summed over the week. Watching a show/movie with him during this time
  12. Last challenge, I got ready to perform in Edinburgh's Samhuinn Fire Festival. It's currently... 7 and a bit days to go till the performance date, so this post is mostly me fantasising about having things to do that aren't costuming and rehearsing. More detail will follow when the challenge actually starts (which will be the 2nd of November for me). Goal 1: Lifting. The Edinburgh Nerd-Up in October was fantastic, and at the lifting session I hit a new deadlift best of 70kg. I've not touched a barbell since because I'm terrified of wrenching my back before the festival, but in
  13. Oh dear! But I'm here. I just got back from a road trip vacation in British Columbia (which was a blast). I had thought about making my thread before I left, but was feeling super indecisive about my goals. Now though, I'm feeling so refreshed and re-energised after not worrying about anything for a whole week, and I'm ready to get back to it! Goal Number One: Don't eat like an asshole. It's not even fun anyway. This is really my biggest priority going forward, because I need to get this nonsense under control. Part 1: No eating out. Buying food at wo
  14. Now.... Let's try this AGAIN!! Plus, last time that I checked, I'm a badass!! Maybe not like Spezzy or Steve, but I'm a badass none the less. Time to remind myself of that. So now, let's get back to what I know. I know what I like and what I like consists of being a hero and technology. So who better to model this next challenge than the most technical, most badass.... OK, more like most chaotic, most unstable yet more compassionate heroes out there: Iron Man!! How does one become more like Iron Man?? Let's take a look at the pieces that are Anthony Stark:
  15. WHAT'S UP REBELS!!! Last month's challenge ended in a complete flop... but that's okay. I knew I had set the bar higher than would be advised, and I tried my best. I failed, but I learned from it. Let's do this again guys, and this time we're going to fly through it like falcons or something cool like that. Rad. THIS TIME AROUND I'm going to focus more on getting into focus, which to me means less worrying about exercise and more getting my brain into check. Of course, I'll still be hitting the gym and whatnot, but my challenge will be focusing on focusing. I'm thinking probably yoga/meditatio
  16. I'm returning to doing challenges! I gave up after failing challenges and not focusing my goals properly. But I have just finished reading Steve's book and have the motivation to make a difference to my life again! So here we go. Goal: Get to the gym Reason: I haven't been to the gym much recently (thanks to illnesses, injuries and people dying). I need to reintroduce it as a habit in my life. I enjoy getting stronger and want to be able to do awesome things with my body. What: Go to the gym three times a week following the StrongLifts programme to get my lifts back to what I was achieving
  17. Lightning Goes Commando! What the Whaaaaaat???? It's Boss Battle Time! There is a 3-headed Hydra waiting in the wings and Lightning needs to level up her battle Paradigms before taking on this final challenge of the year. The Hydra has a Seasonal Depression head, a Holiday Food head, and a Holiday Stress head. It's an ugly beast and must be prepared for and taken down! In order to beat the boss, she needs to build her Commando paradigm, Medic, and Synergist. Commando Paradigm is all about dealing damage so Lightning will be following GMB's Integral Strength program. She will
  18. Slow and Steady, for there is No Race. I remember using this saying a lot last year, to remind myself and others that the journey is the thing. There are in fact thousands of starting lines and finish lines in life. There was never meant to be just one of each. GOAL ONE -- GET OUTSIDE and MOVE IT, MOVE IT. Week Zero :: Walk in the Morning, at least 5,000 steps, each day. Week One :: Walk at least 9,000 steps daily THEN ADD listed activity each week with a 5,000 separate step count on hiking/running days Week Two :: Hike 2 times. Week Three :: Run/Hike 2 times. Week Four :: Run/Hike 3 times
  19. I'm about to embark on full paleo next challenge. The plan to support my goal is to bulk prep on a Sunday as I find if I have something ready in the fridge I will eat that for breakfast, if not I end up with something rubbish from a cafe near work. I'm looking for ideas for recipes I can cook in bulk (5 or so meals), I'm not fussy about eating a dinner meal at breakfast or a breakfast meal at dinner etc. The main thing is to be able to cook in advance stuff that I can reheat easily in the microwave and that will keep for 5 days or so. Ideally simple to cook with not too many ingredient
  20. DON'T BE CALM! BE RELENTLESS! This will be my third challenge. I am really excited that I stuck the last two out. They went pretty well but I feel I could have done better on both. This challenge I am aiming for 100%. I am wondering over to the Rangers Guild for a bit of training this time around. Don't mind the Assassin in your midst, only here for training.... swear... Keeping up with the strength training and flexibility but also adding some endurance training. I have come from being severely obese to within 25lb of my goal weight when I let myself slide into bad habits, a nasty injury
  21. That's right, the Conquer The Fort Mud Run is July 12 which happens to be the end of week 5 of this challenge. I've completed 4 obstacle races in the last 3 years and I have slowly been getting better at it. I rarely have issues with the obstacles but the running is the part that really slows me down, especially the 1st-ish kilometer until I get in my zone. I like trail running but have never made running a real priority. Now I can't just focus on running this challenge. I have to make sure I keep working on getting stronger in order to master any obstacle that is set in front of me. Also, in
  22. Trying to make sure I eat healthy while I work. Since I'm low on time, I spent this weekend making a large batch of the following: spaghetti squash (baked) sweet potato (baked) collared greens (wilted on the stove top with onions, garlic, evoo) pork chops (pan fried with onions and garlic) put a bit of each into a tupperware, and that's what I'm eating for the foreseeable future breakfast is the same thing every day- yogurt, grapefruit, spinach it was delicious tonight. I enjoyed it, and I feel great. my concern is that having it for lunch tomorrow, and then dinner will drive me crazy by wed
