  1. Around middle January I'll be here for nigh on 6 years. For the last year+ I slowly but surely lost almost all my fitness. I've maintained some strength but nothing like before. So here goes... getting back on track to become a Super Woman - Super Wife - Super Mom. I'm an early bird, no matter what I try. I can easily get up at 5am, make coffee, feed the pets, then get back in bed and sleep some more. But I've decided I'll leave that for weekends, so that it is a real treat. At the moment I'm not home schooling our two boys, so I'm "on holiday"... sort of. I am trying to catch up o
  2. Disclaimer: This has been a hell of a year!! Plus, keeping it positive here Secondary Disclaimer: Really, I'm going to really respawn this time This is going to be a respawn of Intergalactic (and sometimes inter-dimensional) proportions I have been on a roller coaster of a year and with 40 right around the corner, it's time to really get back on the ball and get myself in shape in all ways. This is something I really need to commit to in a major way. So, without further ado, here comes the challenge!!! This challenge (and for several more to come afterwards) wi
  3. A friend of mine, who trained in track and field in Germany has introduced me to using a medicine ball. We used it as a warm up for our throwing practices(we are highland games competitors), and since then I have bought my own and no obtained a copy of "Medicine Ball Training" by Zoltan Tenky, an old school track coach. I am aiming on making every third day a medicine ball day to go along with my Simple and Sinister kettlebell training. Minimum daily doses. Does anyone have any experience with medicine ball work? If so, what did you find the most beneficial with it?
  4. Ola amigos! I have been working out all my life, used to do a lot of activities. However, due to some not-wearing-a-seatbelt-incident, I have to start from scratch and start all over in the gym. Yes the gym. So after gym-shopping, I decided to go with a warm and friendly slightly overpriced gym. The machines are clean, the people are friendly, not too many oversized macho guys. However, I have a question which I need help with. How on earth, do you find the motivation to run on the treadmill and do the reps? I have absolutely no joy in what I am doing. So help please? :/
  5. Who is Archon? I joined NF 2 weeks before the June 2015 6WC started. At that point, I was 1 week into a new workout routine, and 3 weeks into attempting to eat better. There are links to my introduction and my previous challenges in my sig below. Feel free to rummage around there. Summary: I’ve gone from 277 lbs at the end of January 2015 down to 240 now, dropping from around 33% body fat down to 24%. For a long time I was hanging out with the adventurers as my primary goal was weight loss, but I have now transitioned into a more balanced fitness & wellness routine and am looking to get
  6. Improve general fitness, strength and health. When an Amazon realises she needs to get back up, get her ooeeemmmpphhh! back, she heads back to the bush. This is my first challenge as a Ranger... coming from the Assassin group. If I have to tick things in the "Rangers gonna Ranger" list, then there will be a couple done, tried, got the t-shirt, never going to do again... must be my (South-) African heritage. Like braai (BBQ) on a Sunday - it is in the blood. We have two little boys (6yrs and 9yrs respectively) whom I home school, and boy I have to keep up with them! Thus the reason for getti
  7. Hi all, I'm Becka and I'm a dragon (mainly because I write a web serial about dragons). My main quest is to lose weight and improve my general fitness. Goals: 1. Continue watching what I eat and achieve my 10% weightloss goal by the end of the quest (I'm already down 5% so this is another 5% loss) 2. Continue to do my ten minutes exercise every day. 3. Add in a modified version of the BBWW every Mon, Wed, Fri. I'm still working on the exact modifications here Life Quest: To write at least 300 words a day. I'll edit this with more detail when it's not bedtime. Becka

  9. Annabjoyful and the Return to Routine After successfully completing my first NF challenge earlier this spring, I entered a time of kind of crazy life stress. My job took a turn for the worst, and I made the decision to leave, find a new position, and subsequently relocate to be closer to family. I'm happy to report that I have a new job, am happily relocated, and it looks like there will be much less stress in my life and much more manageable work hours. YAY!!! Of course that means it's time to get back into a routine. During my hiatus I have been able to manage...mostly; I haven't gaine
  10. My name is Samuel and this Monday will be the start of my first challenge. I have tried to lose weight and keep up a fitness regiment in the past, but it wasn't until I stumbled upon this site that I realized what I was doing wrong. Fad diets and doing ridiculous hour long workouts that don't work out (Haha) for my body just wasn't the right thing to be doing. So over the next six weeks I will be combating a combination of my fitness, health, and self-image issues that have been building up. 1) Cut back on processed food each week. I already have cut out about half of what I used to indulge
  11. Hi guys, my name's Sal, I'm an almost 32-year-old gal living in Germany. I've gained 10 kgs thanks to stress eating and not working out over the past 4 years. Unfortunately, I love fast food and am probably addicted to sugar... I'm also on antidepressants which make me crave food (and gain weight) even moren. Well, these are my goals: 1) Take 2 classes/week at my local gym. Take 1-2 extra classes whenever possible. 2) Cut down on sugar/eat less candy and fast food. 3) Walk 5-10 extra minutes with the dog each day. 4) Be a better homemaker. Starting weight: 62 kgs Goal weight for thi
