  1. As you know if you’ve been following the Tales of Owlshire, that—quite unexpectedly—I was asked to take on a full time, ~6 month narrative designer contract in January. Although I’d hadn’t been actively pursuing a return to the working world right now, this is career direction I had been hoping to go someday so we seized on the opportunity to make it work. It has rather shaken up our 2021 plans at Owlshire, but as we like to say in the House of Owlshire “a plan is just a place in which manage change.” In any case, now that I’m navigating full time employment for the first time since I became a mother and trying to continue developing Owlshire, I’m keeping it simple for this challenge: Storyteller Kick ass at my job. This is Living the Dream and I don’t want to wake up. 1XP per “Deep Work” (focused and undistracted) hour logged. The view is that it’s hard to sustain more than 4 hours of this on average so that makes a natural “cap.” (And somedays I need to do more fragmented, distracting work than others anyway.) Keeper of the Flame At least one Owlshire green or restoration activity a week. 5XP for the first one per week 3XP for each that follows Multi-activity tasks I’d like to conclude in this challenge: Plant seeds to start in the conservatory Ready the (reduced) vegetable garden for planting Sow early seeds into the garden. Help get all of the trees and berry bushes in (Mr is mostly doing this, but there are ways I can enable him) Map the Leylines Use regular walks and other exercises to: Walk at least 4+ miles a day. Build and maintain my PAI goal (10+ points a day until I get to 100 average, then maintain that average.) 1XP for each, 3 for the day if I make a combo. No XP cap on any of these goals—they’re focused in on my main priorities. I think this may be the first challenge in which Enting doesn’t play a big role, since he’s now in full time nursery school. One of those big changes from starting work! I’ll continue to aim for 200XP (total of 400XP) to get to level 3, if I’m getting close halfway by Week 3 (keeping in mind I start challenges in Week Zero), I will raise it. PS: Don’t worry, there will still be photos of Owlshire! We’re transitioning into spring and how can I not take a million pictures of that?!
  2. So who's on Xbox One, and more importantly is playing Elder Scrolls? Bought an online game that I'm currently playing by myself which is just silly.

  4. Good morning fellow Beginners, Rebooters and bewildered individuals. I am ValkyrieRising and have decided to dip my toe into the water and drink the Kool-Aid of Nerd Fitness. A little about me. I'm a history Nerd who had been working on being accepted to do her PhD overseas in Denmark when I got a rather unpleasant medical diagnosis. (No prizes for guessing my area of interest given my Nickname/BattleTag/Secret Identity/Hero Name etc) Im a 30 something years old and struggling with my health after that medical diagnosis and just the fact I'm not as young and sprightly as I used to be. I finally have the all clear from my doctor to begin the long road back to good health and good eating that was me 3-4 years ago before my diagnosis. Currently my focus is just on eating healthy again as during my fight with my body and the treatment I devolved into eating comfort foods when I was well enough to eat. I indulged in anything I wanted, telling myself I deserved it because I was going through tests/chemo/hospital stays/transfusion/whatever excuse I felt like using. So for my first challenge this is going to be my focus. Main Quest: To eat healthier and get my eating habits under better control by not gorging on whatever I feel like and sticking to a measurable goal of between 1650-1900 calories each day based on my activity. Smart Goals: 1. I will weigh and measure my food until I can re-orientate my brain as to what a proper serving size is. (A whole pan of brownies is not one serving.) 2. I will track my consumption and calories through an online Food Tracker. (I'm using My Fitness Pal since it seems easy enough.) 3. I will cut my sweet tea consumption out and focus on drinking water each day instead. I accept that this will be a struggle and I may slip but a small slip is no reason not to press forward in this challenge. 4. I will meal prep my food during the beginning of the week in order to ensure I do not eat mindlessly. I recognize this as a big pitfall of mine, sitting at home and being bored so grazing through the fridge for food. If I prep my snacks and food ahead of time I hope to graze on that and not overeat during the week. With all of this I am allowing myself 2 instances where I will divert from these plans. The first is on December 14th and the premiere of the next Star Wars movie. I've had tickets since October and intend to go and enjoy this occasion without worrying about myself and what I'm indulging in.The second is a Christmas party my friend throws that I am finally healthy enough to attend after missing it the last couple years. This is part of being mindful and accepting that constantly saying no to the things I enjoy will lead to me failing and binging. In my reading, here and other sources, I really grew to like the idea of the 80/20 approach. As long as I am doing well the larger majority of the time and don't let myself slip and keep on track then those small indulgences have less of an impact and value. I look forward to reading along and travelling with you all through this journey and hope to grow not only in my health, mind and body, but also in my challenges as I see how creative and all in many of you go. Its awing and inspiring! I leave you with the following words to consider in life.
  5. I have just moved to Pataskala Ohio and my husband is not really into working out or some of the more nerd things I like. I was looking for a buddy either in the area or online/txt who may also like video games, larp, renaissance faires, pokemon, sports, and who would be willing to help keep me accountable and be able to talk nerd as well . Nerd workouts are the best workouts! If you have/love pets as well I love going to the dog park for a work out for both me and my pups. As I am just restarting my adventure I do not have many weights so most of my workouts are bodyweight(though there is enough of that lol), walks, or I get creative with other activities such as sports, the dogpark, or larp. -Ecco
  6. Since this is a Nerd fitness forum i figured this would be a good topic. What are your personal inspirations from tv/games/ anny other nerdy stuff. Personally i get a lot of inspiration form the assassins creed games, Arrow on tv and Vikings. Assassins creed. This because is envy their way of life and feel a lot of empathy for their creed. i one day hope to achieve some level of skill in Parkour. Arrow. For me Arrow is about a superhero without any special abilities and had to learn everything he knows, and train his body to superiority. it is inspiring. Vikings. this is simple, because vikings.
  7. Hey, I just wondered, if any rebels will be playing the game (on PC). - I will. I already liked the multiplayer in the first game and it seems part 2 will be even better. - Looking forward to coop-mode! So, who is up for some hacking?
  8. ***QUICK NOTE: This is an RP tavern, please play in character. All things are permitted, including magic. However, please no god-modding and magic use should be reasonable, ie. you can't stop time, which applies to god-modding anyway. Have fun, and I really hope this takes off. Any questions, feel free to ask.*** As you approach the new tavern, you spot a sign with the following information: #============================================================================# Welcome To Ojara a'Lenendra's Tavern o' Fantastical People! We has a few rules, keep em and we'll be fine. 1.) Be true. 2.) Be you. 3.) Support the crew. 4.) Drink up me hearties, yo ho. (Protein shakes of course!) 5.) Alcohol on hand for the respawners and a special gift. Special gift: A hug from our pet monkey. 6.) Do NOT attack the monkey, reward listed below if you do. Reward: Meet Gustav. 7.) Have a great time! We currently offer three delicious flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, and Pina Colada! Have a nice stay, ya hear. #============================================================================# MEET BOSCO: (Isn't he cute?! He loves to hug all those who decide to respawn.) MEET GUSTAV: (Once known as Clark Kent or Superman, he changed his name to Gustav when he finally decided to get serious and kick some serious tail.) Note from Gustav Clark: Greetings, I claim full rights to eject those I find 'unsavory', do NOT test me. I'm not gullible anymore. ***************************************************************************************************************************** As you enter the tavern, you notice the typical setup. Tall mahogany chairs are encircled around small tables within the center of the softly lit tavern. The outer part of the bar is lined with elaborate booths all lit with small lanterns in the center. At the back corner booth sits Gustav glaring wildly in seemingly all directions for something to do. Your gaze turns towards the bar and Ojara raises his hand in greeting, "Hello there? Welcome to ma tavern." As you approach the bar you notice Bosco sitting patiently next to Ojara who is petting him ingratiatingly. "What cannai getcha?"
  9. I'm.. a bit of a nerd. "How much of a nerd could she possibly be?", you ask. Enough to recite "I. AM. COMMANDER MOTHERF*CKING SHEPARD" while exercising for extra motivation, perhaps. Enough to visualize myself sprinting away from Halo's Elites and Grunts for that extra kick. Enough to put myself in the mindset of different characters for confidence's sake. Yeah. I go by Echo or Cheshire, whichever floats your boat! The reason why I'm here... Well, I've been reading NerdFitness for close to 5 years now, I think. Gotta start young, yeah? And with anxiety constantly looming over my shoulder, and the huge transitions that college has brought me, I'd like to kick life's ass and have control over something. And that something happens to be me. I WILL take control over my life. My body. My responsibilities. I WILL fight tooth n' nail to become stronger, to become fierce, to not be afraid to fight back. Here's to being in it for the long run, yeah? [i will also be joining the Monk's Guild this go-around. Karate OP!]
  10. I thought it would be nice to have a place where cosplayers can get together to discuss projects and to get help and advice on their builds and such. Whether you are a newbie or a pro there is someone here that might need you.
  11. Came across this today, looks pretty good for a dose of nostalgia for the old farts among us that remember the original http://www.gamespot.com/articles/e3-2014-gauntlet-aims-for-old-school-nostalgia-at-a-bargain-price/1100-6420447/
  12. 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.
  13. Hello! My NF name is Cleatorus, same as my WoW handle, and I am working on my second challenge. I would consider myself a Mountain Dwarf type at 4'11" and 167lbs. I am looking to be a warrior/ranger hybrid for strength and stamina. I want to be an adorable nature-loving, hiking, gardening person as well as a strong self-sufficient badass. I have let depression and stress eating keep me from living a healthy adult life. I used to play ITG/DDR constantly to keep in shape but after getting married and having a child my dance game routine has fallen to the wayside. I feel that my depression has gotten worse as a result of my unhealthy life. I work as a patent assistant at an Intellectual Property law firm so i'm at a desk all day. Luckily, we have a free membership the the Sport&Health downstairs! I used to get embarrassed even thinking about going to the gym but thanks to NF i've found the courage to go in on my lunches tu/thu/sometimes fri. I have been using the beautiful riverside park outside of my office as a place to run or just get moving under the sun. I have been getting into hiking and gardening as outdoor activities to be more active without scaring myself into being inactive again. I joined NF to be accountable to like-minded, accepting, individuals and to reach my lifestyle/weightloss goals. A summary: Current favorite music: Blues/indie rock I enjoy a lot of different types of music...from Drum and Bass (current favorite: camo & krooked) to alternative hip-hop (c fav: Deltron 3030) to pop (c fav: Marina and the Diamonds) and the list goes on. Sorry Country fans, I got burnt out on country in my early years. Current favorite game: Transistor or Hearthstone imo, Bastion is better than Transistor but i'm not done playing Transistor so i'll give it a run through before my final verdict. The games I cycle through: Castlevania: SOTN, Pokemon, BlazBlue, MvC, MvC2, Spyro series, WoW, Skyrim, ITG/DDR, Bastion, Minecraft...I think those are the main ones. Of course there's the massive steam library of my husband that'll I might maybe one day get around to looking at. Current favorite book: Ready Player One by Earnest Cline Much loved books: American Gods by Neil Gaiman, The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop, Hobbit & LoTR, and many many more... I am a Disney nerd. My favorite Disney movie is Beauty & the Beast but the one I watch much more frequently is my feel-good go-to Mulan. The Pebble and the Penguin deserves an honorable mention, even though it's Don Bluth and not Disney. I like Halloween. A lot. I am obsessively getting into veggie gardening and chicken raising. I have collected, but do not anymore, pokemon plush and video game figurines. I am hoping to find a local D&D group to join. I haven't played before but I would like to start! I will be starting school back up in August to finish my law degree. I would like to do public interest law and do some good in this world, help someone, protect someone, be super without the super powers! And thus, here I am, Cleatorus.
  14. Hey, Nerds, This past weekend I was introduced to a fun new game, and introduced some others to another. I wanted to take a moment to share these with you guys, and see if anyone around here has similar games like these, that double as pretty solid workouts without you even realizing it. 1) Laptag (Requires at least 5, can fit any odd-number of players) Half of the group sits in a large circle on the ground—plenty of space between each other. They sit with their legs uncrossed and spread out. The second half sits cross-legged, one in front of each person already sitting. The odd-person out is "it." (Because what game is complete without an arbitrary pronoun?). The person who is it sits in the circle, as well. Or, perhaps, sits somewhat removed from the circle. They then call the name of two of the people sitting cross-legged. Those two people race to tag that person's lap. However, the people behind them do all in their power to stop them. See how it goes? When someone eventually tags the person who's it (kind of backward, I know), the person who was supposed to be stopping them is now it, and the person who successfully tagged sits behind the old "it" person. Then play continues. We usually add that if someone tries and fails to get away two or three times, then they switch. I've only played this once, but boy was I sore the next day. ______________________ This next one I imagine will be a favorite of the Assassins. 2) Rocks (I suppose you can play with at least two, but it's very much a "the-more-the-merrier" kind of game. It also depends on how big a playground you have.) (That's right. Playground.) Short Version: Marco Polo on a playground. Long Version: One person is "it." They close their eyes and count to ten. Keeping their eyes closed, the wander about the playground structure, trying to corner the other players. While in Marco Polo, leaving the pool leaves you vulnerable to the dreaded "Fish-out-of-water" call, in Rocks, the person who's it can call "Rocks" to catch anybody who has left the playground's structure. This isn't a game about speed—it's about maneuvering the other players into positions where they can't escape—which leads to some fantastic ninja-moments. A note about safety: The people who are not it typically keep a close eye on whoever is it, especially on a new playground. There are no "Marco!" "Polo!" calls, but people commonly keep whoever is it updated if they are in or near a potentially dangerous situation. ________________________ These are two games that I very quickly fell in love with the moment I tried them. They are both a ton of fun, and make for some great workouts. For all these reasons, I humbly present them to you all to try out yourselves should you get the chance. In addition, I really want to know if any of you have some games like these. I'm always excited to find these ways to exercise without realizing it—and to share them with others who claim that they just don't like exercising. So?
  15. Original posting, includes links re: "sisu." I still have a very, very full work schedule and I am coming off a bit of a slump last challenge, but I'm diving right into the first challenge of 2015. I need to. This community has helped me keep my dream and goal of returning to fighting fires again alive, despite setbacks and injuries and doubts. My Main Quest for much of last year was to attend the Arizona Wildfire Academy and recertify as a wildland firefighter this coming spring. The fact is, I'm not physically or financially ready for that yet. Part of my slump was due to my disappointment over that. But I am not giving up, merely readjusting my time frames and expectations. I am pulling things from the past 4 or 5 challenges that have worked the best for me and mixing in a few new twists for this go around. And, I am committing to a year's focus on consistency, and a challenge specific focus of "sisu." Expect to hear quite a bit more about sisu in the coming weeks. (There are a number of links in the spoiler.) I believe it is my not-so-secret weapon on the way to success in my quest. All the ideas, plans, programs, workouts, and diets in the world mean nothing if I do not have the grit and the guts to persevere through the inevitable setbacks and difficulties along the way. Consistency is important; sisu is absolutely essential. More to come on Monday evening, MST

  17. Hey everyone! I've been playing Ingress for the past few months, and it's great. It's put out by NiaticLabs, an internal startup at Google. Basically it's a location based augmented reality game, kind of like a giant global capture the flag between the Enlightened and the Resistance. You try to capture portals, create fields, and destroy portals of the other team. The best part of this game is that it is GPS based, so you actually have to go to the place. Already it has motivated me to take a more winding path or go out for an extra walk to get to that one portal the other team has claimed. I always find that game or achievement based motivations work better for me than just telling myself to go out for a walk. I wanted to see if anyone else on the site is playing. If it sounds cool to you, and you have an Android device (tough luck iphone users), I'm happy to send you an invite to join. I currently have eight available. And you should join the Enlightened, because we're awesome.
  18. Hello, NeutralGoodPirate here, I found Nerd Fitness completely by accident and thought it sounded like Steve had a lot of good ideas. About a week later and I have entered the November challenge (my first) and should be updating regularly. Thanks for reading and good luck to all the other newbies!
  19. So, I'm a console junkie, and I'm looking for my next fix... I just finished (or re-played) the entire Halo Franchise and I'm looking for another great game or series. Suggestions? Favorite Console: Xbox 360 Favorite Game: Mass Effect (Trilogy) Favorite Style: Anything epic and engaging. I don't like wondering aimlessly for hours, but I want to feel free.
  20. Hey guys, I am a huge fan of the Borderlands series (as you'll all notice by my nick) and I am looking for someone who's interested in playing Borderlands 2 on PC in the Coop-Version. I am from Germany, so there might be problems with time-difference, but that's something to be solved. So is anyone interested in a fair Coop-Play? The more the merrier.. (it's four players at max, am I right?).
  21. hello all! heres an overview of what i bring to the table, where i've been, and where im hoping to go. Nerdiness: Im a voracious reader. i play video games on my ps3. i play board games and card games. im a lab analyst. and i have a mildly embarrassing obsession with disney movies, animations, manga, firefly, ect. and i enjoy singing really loudly in the car. "Athletic" history: i taught swimming lessons for 7 years, and took a year of that to figure out how to swim butterfly without looking like i was drowning (the indicator being that lifeguards stopped asking if i was okay....or if i needed help. just kidding. most of my peers just sat on the edge and chuckled. always glad to be of entertainment.). i was a powerlifter in High school, enjoying deadlift the most. at my best- i could deadlift 215lbs. after reading born to run a year or so ago- i became a runner. i enjoyed 5k's for quite some time until i inexplicably hurt my left foot. no really- no idea what happened. could be a stress fracture. could be a tendon. could be aliens. x ray showed nothing. so...with instructions to baby my foot *humph* i thought i'd try body weight exercises and weight lifting. i also played coed roller hockey, soccer and such like but nothing really fit until swimming. Battle Strategy: i initially planned on working out in the morning so that i wasnt able to just sit on my butt afterwards. however, i recently purchased a new bed and its the most comfortable cloud....er - bed ive ever slept on. getting up earlier than absolutely necessary is now much more difficult. i swear- gravity increased. i stand all day at work (and essentially run around like a chicken with my head cut off) and when i get back home im tired. i also bike to and from work the days weather permits. lurking around the site here, i discovered the basic body weight exercises. i'm going to work that as a circuit. and during my stretches- im going to work on being able to do the splits. (since it really only adds 4 mins to the stretch time im not overly worried about this) i planned on viewing the NF vids for proper form on lifting so that i dont injure myself. its been awhile since high school power lifting and i cant promise that i remember how to do it correctly. Any advice? Strategies? good books to read? =) see you on the interwebs...
