  1. I was reading my threads from this time last year... I'm in the same damn rut except that my depression is different. So I'm going to start off small again... still. My goal is to find something to brag about every day. Usually it'll probably be what I cooked for dinner.
  2. It is time once again to regenerate. It's been a fun run in this body, but seriously it's time to go... but one can hope I'm going to end up with a much healthier model. Maybe ginger? This time around I'm going to try to keep it simple, we'll not be saving the world, just taking in the sights, getting acquainted with my companion(s) and see if we can survive. Step One: Nutrition After a regeneration it is important to get the right nutrition - I will be doing the elimination diet again this challenge. I was sooooo close last time I
  3. I'm intimidated by the forum change, so this challenge is all about just coming here every day, trying to follow threads, and posting in my own thread.
  4. Placeholder at the moment, but there will be housework-related goals, some focus on positivity after a few months of being peeved at feeling fat and useless, loads of pictures of me jaunting around Thailand and preparation for doing so. SpecialSundae sparkles with positivity Look for something in every day that is positive and share it. Bounce with happiness when I can. Try to ignore the demons but share them to allow other people to help when it's bad. Say something positive about every workout. Do your accessory work (maximum two sessions compressed into o
  5. Now that I'm refreshed and relaxed from a two week holiday I think this is a good time to reboot my healthy lifestyle goals for this year. I know what I want, I just struggle to find and/or stick to a routine that works for me XD 1. Leave the house, do some exercise, 1x a week. I went to the gym a few times on the cruise ship and rather enjoyed it! I'd also like to incorporate some outdoor skating to improve my skating skills; these both entail me leaving the actual house; its only the idea of leaving the house that stops me - once I'm out and about I'm happy to exercise! Just once a week is a
  6. A bit of a new spin this challenge... Actually challenging myself! Main challenge - I am not a tidy person. My house is, quite frankly, an embarrassment and that's going to take more than one challenge to turn that around. Grant and I are going to clear out the house, probably get rid of c. 25-50% of the things in it, and get it clean and tidy again. We've already taken down some really grotty old blinds and started putting away the piles of laundry, but a non-exhaustive list of things we need to do is below: Get rid of all the excess toiletries in the bathroom Clear out the boxes of
  7. *I'm still working on this challenge and may edit a bit over the next couple of days, but I need to get started! (Or maybe I'll just go with what I've got.) EDIT: I'm not getting to this, so we'll just go with what I've got! Edit: Since I now have both a pull-up mentor and pull-up rival, pull-ups will be my exercise focus this challenge. Quest 1: Art The Big Art Quest from the art sherpa on youtube. In keeping with SnowOwl’s recent discovery of her true elven identity, she will continue to discover more about herself through art. Details and Scoring: Quest 2: Clean Earn xp by
  8. Just from this partial-week... Limiting screen-time at my mother's house was easy because when I got bored, there were other things to do. It was her house, so helping to tidy was a definite case of "pull your gloves on and do this." Or there were clean-enough areas to work on fun projects half of the time. (Having a puzzle-area set up was nice. I got a cheap canvas kit mostly-painted. I built one of my dragonfly kits and left it there for her to turn into wall-art.)Here, I'm not sure what to do first, and retreat into the computer to get away from not having the room to enjoy kits. I thi
  9. I am rebelling against the current class system by being an innkeeper. I'm also rebelling against having physical fitness goals in favor of having my environment be fit. (Hey, a decent couple hours of housework are about all I can handle right now.) A lot of my goals will seem familiar because they are, but I don't think it's too unreasonable to keep trying to make them stick. The points I'm assigning now might not correlate to the xp my character gets later. Tea Goal: make tea: 9 points drink tea: 1 point I'm not sure how to score this if I end up not drinking the tea until the next d
  10. So I have soft goals of getting the house clean enough to really live in and limiting screen time. Right now, I'm spending all of my time uselessly wandering the internet because I can't stand being here, but the feeling intensifies after I've been somewhere and come back. Some of the decluttering and organizing is up to hubby, so I'm not going for a firm milestone in progress. What I do want to do is really documenting how much effort I'm putting into what I can do and post it on tumblr. Password is: ilovenerds The old stuff really shows how the house has been worse. The text part of
  11. Hello to all the Rangers! This is my second challenge, and my first with the big boys and girls outside of the safety and security of the recruit forum. Exciting! *disclaimer - the theme of this challenge is NOT just an excuse to trick people into posting me scrummy pictures/gifs of Matt Smith. Quest 1: Geronimo! Complete a dumbbell workout three times a week. (Starting on NF DB Level 1). Continue working on that elusive push up! Quest 2: Come along, Pond (The happy, jolly, we're off on an adventure "come along, Pond", not the devastatingly sad, don't you dare choos
  12. Two goals. The first is to account for every day with housework, food, and play. The second is to check my master list of things I should be doing instead of futzing away on the internet. Master list of things I should be doing: Misc Routines:Know what's for dinnerGroomed and dressed (Earrings today?)Do artWrite down art and writing ideasCheck on the busywork preparationsHousework Laundry put away Tables cleared KitchenPut dishwasher on dirty, run if fullCutting boards cleanKnives cleanLarge pan and lid cleanCounters wipedSink drains clearedPlayOrigami and paper starsCross-stitchColoring p
  13. I decided to use a positive topic this time, so let's see if reality conforms to it by the end. "Gobnait is competent" Since my goal of making the house comfortable relies on hubby's help, I'm going to focus on what I can do to keep things from going to heck. I think part of that is to focus on fun instead of frustration. If I get into a kitchen-rut again, I may go on a cooking strike. By November 2, I should have a list of "Things I should be doing" that is hanging up instead of hidden away online. The kitchen list that is already on my fridge, once I write "Know what's for dinner" on
  14. Respawning seems to be a theme right now. Maybe it has to do with overambitious New Year's resolutions? For me, January sucked, and it took longer than a month to recover from the sheer panic of being convinced that hubby's work was trying to kill him before he could leave. Since I make New Year's resolutions in the spring (not necessarily April first) because that's when my energy picks up again, I'm not planning anything too ambitious until at least then. No points this challenge, just getting things accomplished for the benefits that result. I'm wanting to start with building a routin
  15. Hello Rangers! I would like to join you for my second challenge. I got through most of the last challenge, but then life got in the way and I sort of dropped off the face of the earth. The last 2 weeks were rough. I think part of what was tough for me the last time around was goals that were a little too strict and didn't allow for real life. I'm going into my busy time at work (actually, it should almost exactly line up with this challenge!), so I will not have a lot of time over the next 6 weeks and I need to be realistic. I will be doing a lot of physical activity at work, but I
  16. Ahoy! I have been preparing for this journey since March, when I decided that I should be in the best shape of my life by the time I hit the big 3-0 this October. Since then, I've lost 12 pounds, started running several miles 2-3 times a week, and in the last month added lifting to my routine. The foray into lifting led me to the Nerd Fitness Community and I am looking forward to participating in my first challenge! MAIN QUEST: I want to be in the best shape of my life by the time I turn 30 this October. To accomplish this quest, I am giving myself the following missions: Mission 1
