  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. I'm still trying to lose some weight, so that's a big focus right now Endeavor 1: Lose 2.5 pounds by challenge end Use MFP 6 days a week Follow guidelines from eating skills *experiment, I've upped my protein to 120 grams to see if that helps with satiety. This is a guideline. If I have a day where I feel like eating more carbs than protein, that is fine. I just want to experiment and see how this works Reward: counted at end of challenge: 1 point for each day tracked 28+ points = 2 Constitution pts 24-27= 1 Con pt. 20 -24 = .5
  3. This is part 2 of my 2021 relay-challenge, where I stagger my challenges so that I achieve a major milestone every challenge . Last challenge I managed to get to 5 push ups, so it's time to go for the next shiny. With the lockdown there will be no climbing for the next month at least, so all my goals are now home bound. Well, not all goals, since my major goal this challenge is: 1) Take a 15km hike Originally, I wanted this to be 20km, but that turned out to be too ambitious. 15km is still a nice distance, and if I can do that comfortably then there's still plenty of hiking va
  4. 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 .
  5. this will be a lot more updated over the days. Goal 1: Allocate time and use it wisely writing on my thesis. Goal 2: at least 2 muscle up, and 2 focused handstand training pr week. Goal 3: Get my habit back of daily meditation, pranayama and arm balance work. 5 minute of each pr day is enough, more is better Goal 4: Get rid of at least one thing that clutters a day on average.
  6. We have done a good job of keeping our town safe.For now anyway, Metropolis is free from villains. Which is great. But also, well, truthfully, kind of boring.What's a super hero to do when she doesn't have any villains to fight? I was sitting in my easy chair, reading a book, sipping on some pumpkin spice tea, secretly hoping I would be called out on a mission. So when my secret superhero phone beeped, I quickly darted over to check it. Hmm, it was a text from Jessie Graff. She and I had become buddies one day after I had saved her from the evil Villain Giganta. I opened the text and read:
  7. Grandkai Goes Wick John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about. Last challenged i did a respawn here in the forums and with fitness, habits, nutrition. Despite having a decent 2 weeks challenge i need more focus on my goals, commitment to not be distracted with videogames & sheer will to succeed in my challenge. FOCUS: Don't be distracted by videogames until my task for the day are complete. These task are the following: - Working out; - Pomodoro Cleaning; - Shopping (if needed); -
  8. So why did the chicken cross the road? - to get away from the freak standing on his hands: One thing this assassin learned playing Skyrim is dont kill the chicken, but how does one scare it away instead? Ancient research shows that inverting one self will activate the chickens inner fear and run away, even if that mean to cross the magical road. Week 1 goal: a. Do 3 20min focused handstand sessions. b. Stay on my hands every day at least 5 times. What good are wings if you can't fly? An assasin can crawl in the shadows, following his foes ev
  9. Hi everybody, I've tried one or two challenges before, but got overwhelmed and didn't finish...so I'm going to put this here in the beginner forum, and try to keep my goals very modest! Main goal: Lose more weight. I've lost eleven pounds since January, but my loss has definitely slowed and even possibly stopped. I'm not even sure what my final goal should be, but I'm pretty sure I'd like to lose at least a few more pounds. I weigh 162 now, and I'm really excited to see a number under 160, so that's my numerical hope for this challenge period. Main method:
  10. This will be updated throughout the days, and will look back at this later. but here is the first draft! So in the last challenge I worked on reading everyday, however I found out that I had a good habit of reading in the train, I have 2x 45 minute in the train 5 times pr week, and im reading in most of those breaks (when I dont do this challengetext ;)) so I will try to see if I an maintain that without it being part of the next challenge. 1. I won't miss you when you're gone keyword: Minimalism Object: To own 1 less thing for every day of the cha
  11. I'm focusing on very few simple things so I can achieve them and optimize recovery. Since we are almost in mid-Feb, I will still start tracking as of Feb 1st with at least a weekly check-in. Goal 1: Run More - avoid no-running streaks and go for 115 miles in Feb. Goal 2: Core - planks and push-ups to failure and focusing on form, 3x a week Goal 3: Handstand - practice 3x a week Level Up Goal: write my gratitude journal daily
  12. So i missed some challenges, and the last few haven't ben good. So now I have a relative easy challenge where I hope to succeed 4 simple goals, to finally get a good challenge. 1: read for 30 minutes at least 4 days pr week 2: check up on this treat at least 4 days pr week (everyday doesn't seem to work so now it should. 3: Be upside down at least once pr day. Can be just one time, might make it harder later. 4: juggle for 5 minutes pr day: can be contact juggling, scarf juggling or cascade juggling. Weekly video to see progress
  13. Grandkai Going Hybrid Assassin: Part II So this is Part II of my Hybrid Assassin transition. The last one went okay.....(check my review HERE). So this challenge i'm going to start with Part 2 Goal 1: Kettlebell Strength & Bodyweight Skill I'm going to use a mix of Kettlebell and Bodyweight workouts. With Kettlebell i'm going to use a workout plan by Onnit Academy to build my strength and endurance. Thats day A and on Day B i'm going to mimic those movements with bodyweight exercises. Goal 2: Run More Last challenge i wante
  14. Slacked off on the first challenge period, but here we are. Inversions every day. Come one, come all. @Mad Hatter @WhiteGhost @zenLara @otterbyte @Grandkai_NL @Norgaard @Sea Level
  15. Sea Level back again for another battle against the robot masters. These are my opponents: Six days a week to conquer Gravity Man! Get upside down six days a week, starting with wall walks and handstands on the walls Battle Metalman one day a week! At minimum, once a week, walk 3 miles with a 20-pound plate. I got myself a GoRuck pack last challenge, and got a 20-pound plate mid-way through last challenge. I have a three-mile route around my neighborhood that I've enjoyed. I'm going to do this walk with the 20-pound G
  16. Grandkai Going Hybrid Assassin: Part I In 2017 i used mostly bodyweight exercises and i mostly used the Start Bodyweight Program. Great program, i've seen great progress but doing only bodyweight has become a bit boring to me. So for 2018 i'm going to become a Hybrid Assassin. Goal 1: 6-Week Hybrid "Athlete" program; I'm going to use two 6-week Hybrid "Athlete" programs which have Kettlebell training, running & bodyweight training. So i'm set for the next 3 challenges Goal 2: Run faster Upcoming Sunday (December 31st) i have my first 10K
  17. Grandkai's doing Assassin Stuff (part 2/2) Previous challenge had its good and bad things so i'm stopping with the bad and continue with the good from my last challenge. I'm gonna try and finished this last challenge of the year strong. Quest 1: Increase Agility "Assassins spend most of their time training with functional body weight exercises as that’s usually the only thing they need to lift." - Startbodyweight Routine 3 times a week; - Handstand Training every day for 5-10 minutes (alternate between handstand & headstand) Quest 2: Increas
  18. I'm looking to stay the course for this challenge. I've been putting off handstanding long enough, and I want to stick to these 28 days with at least some form of HS training, whether it be wrist prep, PPT, shoulder flexion, alignment, or just a short inversion. @Grandkai_NL@Ash Raine@zenLara (and anyone else I might have missed) we all appear to have a daily Handstand practice goal. What say you?
  19. Grandkai's doing Assassin stuff (part 1/2) Previous challenge didn't go so well, but giving it another shot so here are my BIG goals for the last 2 months of this year. BIG Goal 1: Do a Handstand; - Everyday #5 Minute Flow - Everyday Headstand training & progress to Handstand - 3x a week Startbodyweight Routine to build strength. BIG Goal 2: Do a Split; - Do the Darebee "Splits in 30 Days" challenge -1x a week Yoga class - Everyday 30/30 challenge by Ido Portal BIG Goal 3: Reduce Unhealthy foods;
  20. It has been about a year, since I last did a challenge. Lots of things have happened since then. But I thought I'd try this again. It's neither pretty nor shiny (maybe the next one will have a theme again), but it is a start. Quest 1 - Fuel the body you want (intermittent fasting, lunch prep) 1-3 IF days per week, ideally 2 lunch prep the evening before Quest 2 - Work on your weaknesses (Shoulder Press, Squats/Wall Balls/Thrusters, Pull-Ups/Rows) additional work on free days (not rest days!) Quest 3
  21. As Red ventured further into the swamp, He noticed that the once dense purple fog is now lifting and he's finding more and more clearings. However that also means that more things can find him. ... "Man, just how deep is this swamp?" Red questioned the crystal shard in his hand, rhetorically. As he continued forth, he noticed that the scarce trees had taken twisted and barren shapes. "Yeesh. I wonder what sort of trees these guys used to be..." He says outloud to himself. "Heh, that one looks like his bark is worse than his bite! HA HA HA!" Red laughed pointing to a random tree, hi
  22. New Challenge, more update will come as normal ill start with a monday, since well it makes more sense for me 1: Hang for your life Hang, brachiate, play or anything else, relating to hang above the ground 2: Hand downs Daily movement on my hands, locomotion, handstand, headstand, inversions or anything else related 3: Clear your mind: Meditation: Do a daily meditation, can be 5 minutes or an hour depending on the time and what else the day is (this is including savanna at yoga practice) 1: Balance your life:
  23. Hi - I'm not 100% sure if I'm a ranger, a druid or an assassin, but I think I'm going to start here for my first challenge! My goals: 1. complete the 21 days to strength yoga video series for a second time. Exactly how difficult this will be depends on how diligent I am about finishing my first run through this series before the challenge starts. If I don't finish first (which I probably won't) I'll complete my first round before starting the second. I'm trying not to judge my success based on whether I reach particular yoga performance goals, but some things I would l
  24. Hi! I'm visiting the Warriors for the first time; it's just where my goals landed me this time around: Goal 1: Work on pull ups and overhead presses at least twice a week, seeing improvements in reps (pull ups) and weight (assisted pull ups, overhead press) most times. Goal 2: Work on hand stand progressions for 5 mins every day. Goal 3: Eat something rich in protein and something that is fruit or vegetable at every meal (probably won't track meticulously...) Goal 4: Have one deep conversation with my wife every week about what we
  25. So last challenge I got sick and missed more than half of it. This time we turn things around, or try to As usually I start today monday, and end sunday in 4 weeks (the sunday start mess things up for me Again I changed the goals up a bit to reflect more what works best for me. Lifestyle: G1: Focused exams study time: So around the end of this challenge I have 3 exams lined up, and I need to focus on them. 3/5 weekdays I need to allocate 1 hour of priories study time (no phones // tv anything to interrupt. and 1 weekend day I double up
