  1. Over the past few challenges, I have become more energetic and my life is finally getting in order again. Unfortunately, I'm now suffering a groin/hip injury due to poor running-technique. Since I have no idea how much exercise I will be able to do in the next few weeks, I will focus on flexibility. Long term goal: Feel more energetic again and move with ease. Challenge goal: - recover from running injury - improve squat "stretch" and prone knee-to-chest stretch - maintain yoga, cleaning and clarinet habits Quests: 1. Daily physical the
  2. Hiiiii, I’m coming to play with you guys for as long as I’m not running due to this strained, tweaked, torn, or whatever business in my foot (walking and cycling are ok, thank goodness, but apparently jumping jacks and similar movements are Bad News Bears). I see a few familiar faces...for those who aren’t and who like intros, I’m Radost, a child care professional & teacher in my mid-30s from the west coast of Canada. Geekery-wise, my main jam is fibre arts, but I love board games, tabletop rpgs, and video games. I used to love reading sci-fi and fantasy too, but as a feminist who has sta
  3. HI everyone, I've been a runner for 5 years now and found your site while trying to Google and get some advice. I injured one of my abdominal muscles pretty bad a week ago. Should have stopped running but pushed threw it and ran a hard set for an hour and really messed myself up. Stupid, I know. I waited a day and then ran and it started to hurt right away so I quit after 5 minutes. I'm now waiting a week before I try again. The injury is in the front of my abdomen below my belt. It's the muscle you would use to raise your feet from the floor if you were on
  4. This round my challenge is going to be fewer so I stop beating myself up for what I don't get done and can be more adaptable to the needs of family as Christmas approaches. My main challenge for this round: Continue my yoga streak. Today is day 331. Since January 4, 2016, I have been doing yoga every day without missing a single day. While this is quite an accomplishment on its own, I managed to do it through ACL surgery and ankle troubles. Since April I have had no use to very limited use of my left leg. Yesterday, I almost tossed the streak out the window because I found out
  5. I decided that March needed a mentally strong month for me. I will likely be limited physically due to my knee/ankle injury and it will take a high level of mental fortitude to keep my spirits positive, clean up my food choices and exercise as much as possible give my physical limitations. Jean Grey (aka: Phoenix) is one of the most powerful mutants through her powers of telepathy and telekinisis. Also she absorbs the Phoenix Force that renders her even more powerful with crazy amazing abilities. I am going to focus on the two original power of Jean Grey with the end focus of being
  6. After being away from this forum for a month or so, I came back battered and sore. My achilles tendon is injured, I'm close to depression again and I don't feel very well in general, so it's time to start working on that again . In the long term, I want to be healthy, a good climber and strong enough for things like moving without having to worry about my body. I love exercise, climbing and yoga-like movements in particular . This challenge is going to be a short one for me, so I'm going to focus on recovery and trying out new things. I can't climb (or cycle there) with an injured achilles,
  7. Weight: I need to lose about 15 pounds to not be medically overweight, and would like to lose 30. I’ve also got a couple of injuries that I think would heal faster if I weighed less. From experience, I know that if I want to lose weight, I need to be tracking what I eat. Otherwise, it just slips my mind when I eat “just one†cookie or candy multiple times a day. “Just one†is fine. “Just five or ten†is not. I’d like to lose 2 pounds by the end of January. I’m at 164 now, with 42 inch hips Exercise: I’m recovering from a back injury and from persistent plantar fasciitis.
  8. I'm starting this challenge with only two weeks left in it. But since the other option is not starting at all for another month, I'm in. I need to lose weight. I’ve been suffering minor injury after minor injury this year. Nothing I can point to and say “This is because I’m 20 pounds overweight,†but being overweight is a risk factor in all of them. So fitness for the winter is strength training. Right now, it’s centering on physical therapy (PT) for my back and foot. (Plantar fasciitis and stupidly trying to lift a log). Exercise: Short term is recovery, not progress. Next ch
  9. HELL WILL COME BEFORE YOU GROW! Indra Respawns This will be my first challenge since back surgery. I am excited and a little nervous. I have been doing nothing as I heal for so long and screwed myself up even more when I pushed too hard too fast before… The goal now is to find the happy medium. I need to get back to regular workouts but NOT push so hard that I hurt myself again. Sometimes we need to stop pushing at the wall in front of us. I want so bad to be back to the strong, confident, thin me that I keep trying to do what I could then…… but… I can’t. I keep pushing fo
  10. As the echoes of the ringing of the hammer died away, the tinkerer looked up from his anvil. Alas, the long days betrayed him; he had worked past dinnertime again. With no small degree of pride, he surveyed the completed stack of tools he'd created. This was by far the biggest order he'd ever taken and the task filled him with fulfillment. With slight hesitation he considered the work remaining - it added up to several month of solid work. The rays of the setting sun caught his eye as they fell on Firle Peak in the distance and the tinkerer sighed aloud. This was a hard life for an elf. He lon
  11. These are my fingers after rock climbing today. Blood blisters from slipping off of a tiny, sharp hold. Typing isn't really fun at the moment. I'll be out of town for the weekend (hopefully) so I want to get this posted this week. I'm at a bit of a tricky spot where my fitness goals are really to put my training to work. I want to continue working out but I'm really more excited for some activities instead of more workouts. I've been really enjoying tracking things over that last few months and look forward to more of that. The attribute points aren't really doing much for me so I am going
  12. Greetings fellow Rangers! This is my first time on the forums and my first challenge, so this should be interesting. I'm a soon-to-be 30 year old female veterinarian (bonus points to anyone who can spot the name reference WITHOUT Google) who would probably fit in with the Dwarf race. I'm relatively short (5'4"), not too thin (135lbs.) but most of it is muscle (<20% bodyfat). My friends usually say that, though I'm smaller than them, they'd never want to pick a fight with me lol. I'm here because an injury has led to a need to pursue some cross-training. By nature I'm a weight-lifter a
  13. Phew! I thought I'd missed the challenge. I have a habit of starting stuff up which doesn't stick, like checking NF forums, and then kicking myself when I miss out as a result! My goal for this challenge is to take part and complete it. Seriously, if I do just that for the duration of the challenge, I will be super happy with myself. OK, OK, some health goals. And some context. I had a snowboarding accident in February. YAY ICE. Kids, always wear a helmet. I wouldn't be here if I hadn't. This is why I am now a Cyborg (part-titanium!). Ahem. Prior to the accident I was really on a good
