  1. My mother died in October (at age 85). My daughter got married in October, and she and her new husband are starting to talk about having kids. This has prompted some new soul searching on my part - and some thinking about what I want to accomplish in my life. And some thinking about what I want to BE as a grandma. (Disclaimer - my daughter is not yet pregnant and doesn't plan to have kids for 2 years, which gives me time to lose 40 pounds .....) I was a "cool mom." My daughter looks back on her childhood with fondness - at horseback riding and rock climbing and hockey and socc
  2. so more or less in time this time! this challenge will be done on 4 different fun activities 1: Poi 2: Juggling 3: Contact Juggling 4: Handbalancing. The plan is to shoot progress videos on the different things following each sunday, if everything goes as planned .
  3. Hello everyone! I'm going to do an extended summer challenge in this thread that will run for roughly 7 weeks. This will include prep week, the four week challenge, and the two week summer vacation that the nerd fitness forums have planned. It feels a bit nostalgic for the old days of nerd fitness when we did six week challenges on these forums. I'm a thirty something single woman with a cat named Dragon. There's a lot going on in my life currently in terms of my mental health and recovery, and it can all feel pretty intense and heavy. I've decided to make my next challenged center
  4. I've been reading on some of the meet ups and seeing how much fun everyone has been having and then I realized that there hasn't been one in maine(least not that I have seen). Well this need sto be fixed now that we mainers are FINALLY coming out of our winter slumber. So what do you say Nerds? Shall we change this injustice of leaving the Mainers out?
  5. Sometimes puns can be a little corny but, after a while, they can be amaizeing! Just have some pun!
  6. GREETINGS REBELLION!!I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself. It

  8. It's still largely the same things remixed, but that's what I still need to work on. The Titan Challenge approaches! Prepare for it: Run 1/week at least Strength train 2/week at least Plan what to take Running sneakers what clothes? gloves cell phone case?? Would love to take it for pictures - but water obstacles? Sun block bug spray And the big one: the Period Problem. I will probably be mulling over this one a fair bit this challenge as I am due to be on the worst day of it during the race. Because of course. So if
  9. Given: that things are super busy for me. My dad is still in the hospital 3 1/2 hours away from me. His NY house needs to be cleared out because they sold it, and my sibs and I are helping out (closing date late april / early may). work is work and I get uptight about it because my husband is a full time student this semester and I feel strongly that I canNOT mess up. oh and also, a tree fell on my house last challenge and we are coordinating with repair people to fix a tiny hole in the roof (BTW WE WERE SO LUCKY) and a window and some other stuff. Basically, I'm jumping and reacting to needs,
  10. Welcome do Dungeons and Dragons, the Doodlie version. Everyone is welcome to participate By participating you DON'T become a Doodlie, it's just that this game in this form has been invented by the doodlies. A short recap of how we play You start by copying the character sheet and fill it in (see rule book for details on this). After this you put a link to it in your signature, and put the link on the sign in sheet. The name of your character is the same as your name on the forums! This makes it so much easier for the DM's You've got 4 primary abi
  11. Okay, so those of you who have been following my challenges know that I've not had the best time of things of late. Between illness and misfortune, I'm still sitting at a much lower total than I'd like and feeling kinda down because I don't really have a coach who bucks me up when things are going badly. Things might turn around after this weekend but just feeling resigned to getting there and making a total rather than setting the world on fire. Anyway, as an antidote to this, I have decided that the next challenge needs to be about having fun! I don't have a coach aft
  12. Lucky Fire Dragon's Daily Spin So I've been away for a while and it was all for good reasons - being on holiday, getting back into good work rhythm, spending plenty of time with kids for school and fun, rearranging the house and uncluttering a LOT, catching up work projects that I've been wanting to do for 2 years and never got around to,... all good things, so I feel it was healthy priority setting and am very glad I did. I missed you guys as you have become part of my larger family, too, of course, but I knew getting back on here would mean less time for the people around m
  13. Hi All! Xena here....posting this a little late, but wanted to get it in. Because time is short, I copied most of the text from last time.... Round 6 of our PVP using the Daily Dares at Darebee.com has begun! All are welcome. Every day, they post a bodyweight exercise challenge no equipment needed, every day. Sometimes they're easy, sometimes they're not. Every day there are two levels of difficulty. 1) just get it done, over the course of the day, and 2) Extra Credit (EC,) which usually means all in one shot. Eithe
  14. "It is time to stop lurking" - Tippeh, 6/9/16 at 9:53pm Well okay I said that a few times before but this time, I mean it I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of recording my "progress" on scraps of paper I end up losing anyways. I'm tired of starting over multiple times and being just as confused as before. I used to do full body HIIT workouts mainly doing calisthenics 2-3 times a week during the start of my college years and I remember just how AMAZING I felt and looked everyday. Then family issues, changing majors, not eating enough, and life happened. Therefore I fell
  15. Quick intro! I'm karinajean, 38, live in NY state, commute to NJ about an hour each way (so lots of time in the car). I joined the NFA in October 2013 and over the last 2 years I've gone from 206 to around 180. I practice tae kwon do several times a week, take weapons and boxing classes in addition, and have an overarching fitness goal of doing good form push- and pull-ups. I have a crazy mean (yet super sweet) cat and live with my husband full time and my stepdudes 1/2 time. I motorcycle, knit and spin, and am endlessly ignoring how messy the house is. I'm an ASSASSIN because I like doin
  16. Goal: Do fun things daily, minimum of 3 fun things. 4-5-6 if you can and want to. Chat about it here in the thread when I feel like it. Weekly summary of all the fun things. Fun things: micro bio-hacking - black coffee only, a.m. fasting, fasting walk/exercise GMB Elements - being a bear, monkey, frog... need I explain why this is fun? stretching/flexibility - feels good and helps the back, win! dance - just one songs worth will do, because FUN! reading - especially something funny, laughing = good yoga/hand balancing - surely I don't need to explain... w
  17. 2016 Road Map These are my big goals for the next year, there is a lot I want to accomplish so I reserve the right to alter them as life happens Mental Health Live In the Moment- take things second by second day by day maintain good habits Meditation at least 5x per week, preferably daily Inspiration Gratitude Positive Self Talk falling in love with myself Physical Health Exercise Pilates 2x per week Lifting 2-3x per week walking- as active rest yoga?

  18. Thank you for that killer title, def <3 ** Time for Shepherd Fox to continue her journey towards becoming an international super spy! After an action-packed field mission, she’s been granted a few weeks working in the office. Wait, what? An office? â€You’re not ready for field workâ€, says B, the chief of ZOOm, the international intelligence agency. â€You’ve got what it takes, but you can’t control yourself.†â€What do you mean? I think I did OK!†â€You left those baby cows to manage themselves, and totally lost yourself and your focus. Your report mostly consisted of
  19. Hey there! This is my first 6 week challenge. I started week plans by myself from time to time, but I never sticked to it after the first motivation is gone. So, I (at least hope to) learn from the past and now focus on smaller, more reasonable goals. I will write down what I did the other day so I know if I slept or not! Goal number 1: Better sleep To archieve this, I want to stay away from my mobile, my xbox and my computer - devices that send out blue light - the hour before I go to bed. Since I am going to bed at 10pm to get my 8 hours of sleep, I need to stop at 9pm. In the free ti
  20. Alright, Rangers! We've been talking about this and dreaming about this. Now's the time to start doing this! Not much in the way of rules or categories yet. I'm figuring that, as we usually do, we will come to working consensus via discussions in the thread. Post pictures, talk trash, put up links to resources and most of all - HAVE FUN!
  21. (Spoiler: I hate math!) Friends, Rebels, countrymen! WELCOME!! This is my seventh challenge here at Nerd Fitness! As usual, per a Shaarawy Style Challenge each one in 2015 is deliciously nerdily themed with something I love. Adventure Time is simultaneously the silliest/stupidest/weirdest/most AWESOME cartoon I have seen in a long time. Holy crap. It’s also a really smart show that’s a lot of fun and I’m unabashedly addicted to binging it on Netflix on weeknights. I think my recurring favorite character is Jake but I also like that weirdo Lemongrabs and Neptr (so underrated) a
  22. Expectations of Self Challenges abound in this area of my life I call self-motivation, and they do so often without confrontation from me. That ends. It starts being different today. I'm not gonna lift 50 pounds more on the bench, if I don't show up. If I don't push hard when I am there. If I don't push, I will not progress. If I don't progress, I don't get where I WANT to go. Not letting myself get to where I want to go? That needs to end. DO IT NOW It's one of the first articles Steve wrote that really resonated with me. So, I'm pulling it out of the archives and dusting it off. Because d
  23. I want to play kids games again. I used to rock at hide and seek because no one looks up. :-) What kind of games did you play? Are there any groups that get to gether just to play? I've only ever seen adults playing orginized sports with equipment and tons of rules.
  24. Hi, this is my first time on the boards and I'm excited to meet like minded, motivating and positive new peeps. I started my fitness quest after I realized that if I didn't change my ways, my parents were going to have to bury me. I was an uncontrolled diabetic [A1c = 9.2], on insulin and about 3 other meds, using a c-pap at night because my weight was crushing me and cutting off my breathing. I would be so winded after 1 salsa dance that my legs would give out. I was 5'6" and ~252 lbs [114.3 kg]. I am currently going to a supervised diet plan that encompasses not just weight loss but
  25. Crouching in a small cupboard, where Ocelot had flung herself to evade detection, it was hard not to groan aloud: her entire body ached with the tension. Her thumbs rubbed against the newly formed calluses on her palms in futile distraction. She could hear the guards’ conversation - snatched words, at least. They were wondering aloud about the identity of the assassin who had been haunting the fortress for over two months now. Imagine if they knew it was the new maidservant to blame, the small red-haired girl who looked as if butter wouldn’t melt, who concealed her powerful weapon-skilled
