  1. After graduating into a Permabeast last challenge, it’s time to move onto something even bigger. For starters, that means expanding this challenge to 8 weeks. This summer has been insane, both on a personal level as well as with all the political developments, so I’m willing to go with the flow and ride the wave of madness. Also, the end of this challenge coincides with my first ever Obstacle Course Race, the Athens Legion Run. Or at least it used to, before the 2 week break was cut down to one week. Like I said, madness and unpredictability. Either way, I'm stretching things a bit, starti
  2. Fitness Nerds, Summary: I'm a nerd, Sports causing not to have to worry about weight, sports end, prom weight loss, post-prom slump, freshman 15, today, problem= lack of motivation, solution= blog? Finally a group where I'll fit in. The label nerd definitely fits me well, but I embrace that. Recently I have been reflecting on what my goals were this time last year, which was a significant year for me. I was a couple of weeks out from moving away to college. Moving away really only meant 100miles to Baylor University (I live in Dallas), but nonetheless still a daunting task. Up to that p
  3. Alright peeps, let's try this one again. This is my 4th (??) challenge and I have been fairly successful until the last challenge where I fell off the face of the planet because I was completely and utterly overwhelmed with everything in life. But I am not letting it get me down, as I am here and ready to RESPAWN!!! *cricks neck and cracks fingers* Let's get started Overall goal is still the same for those who have been following me: Lose 10lbs every challenge to get to my goal weight of 175lbs, and take necessary steps to join the Police Force Here's how: GOAL 1: Back to basics: 8
  4. Lilith the Chubby Kitten - The Battle Against Fear Level 3 Kitten (definitely not yet a Cat, or Tiger, or...) After having won the battle of heights from Ravi, things were happy and fuzzy and cuddly and nice. Lilith and Ravi had decided they were both the absolute best at everything kitty related, and were therefore partners now, instead of rivals. Lilith was growing up to be a much bigger kitten now, and became much more aware of the surroundings. The human servants especially deserved much more attention! There were two gigantic humans who could reach the shelves with food easily. The tr
  5. Lilith Level 2 Kitten (definitely not yet a Cat, or Tiger, or...) Main quest: Kitteh wants to climb higher and higher! Lilith, the chubby little kitten puts her claws into a new adventure, quite literally! She, and her brother and sister kittens are growing fast! So fast mommy cat can't always keep up with all their little tricks and adventures. Lilith is especially great at happily pouncing out of sight - just a little longer each and every time. Her slightly bigger brother, Ravi, challenges Lilith ever so often. They are the two oldest, boldest, most adventurous of the bunch and th
  6. Hello Nerd Fitness! I have never posted on a forum before, so this is all pretty new to me, but here goes. I grew up in Alaska as one of the fat kids in school. Started getting overweight at the end of elementary school and only got worse as I got older. By the end of my freshman year of college, I was 225lbs at 5'10''. I was determined not to gain the dreaded freshman 15 and succeeded, but for all the work I put into it, did not lose any weight either. One of my friends and I tried all sorts of homemade diets, one of them lasting a grand total of about two hours! That summer I had a m
  7. So, before I get to my question, here's a little background on how I got to this point: I started eating paleo about a year ago, but I have had a lot of issues with slipping back into my old SAD ways for stretches of time. When I was younger, I lost a lot of weight by restricting my calories to 1200/day but my diet mostly consisted of lite and fit yogurts, kashi go lean cereal, salad with salsa and sliced lunch meat. Thinking about that now makes me cringe. Needless to say, that didn't last and I gained the weight back. One thing that did stick with me from that time in my life however, was
  8. Hellloooo everybody. Ummm. Where do i begin.. A little bit about myself. I'm 18 years old living in Sheffield, UK. I'm currently working as an Administrator at a University. I've just moved out of my parent's house and I've bought my own place in Sheffield (formally lived in Rotherham). So, new town, new people.. meeting new people is not my forte.. eek. Okay okay. I've been on and off dietting and exercising for quite some time. Did what most girls do, exercise a lot and eat less. But of course, it can't be kept up forever and all the weight i lost went back on afer about a year. Back in
  9. I am normally a warrior I lift and lift and lift, but what i am trying this time is slightly out of context I weigh in at 125kg and my previous challenges have all been about muscles. For the next 6 weeks challenge I will be sticking to the Insanity workout program (I hope i can mention this in here without a backlash) with 2 friends. I will be stripping fat and getting fitter. I have done 2 days so far, it will be six days a week. Two days in and i have been able to wring sweat out of my tee both days. So for this challenge I will be awarding my points as follows DEX: 5 STA:5 CON:
  10. I have been away from the site for a little while now, although thats not to say I have been completely idle. (Gained my green belt in Filipino Martial Arts, completed a couple of 10Ks, working on forming better eating habits.) I have also been trying to work out why I struggle so much to stick to exercise programs I set myself, (have bunked out of You Are Your Own Gym and Beginner Body Weight Workouts.) I know that my self motivation can be a stumbling block for me, and this is not helped by working out on my own. A friend at work has lent me the Insanity program, and I have quite a few f
  11. Hello Everyone! My name is Sarah and this is my first 6 week challenge. Here are my goals: 1. To stop drinking Coke. I have been trying to do this for quite some time and have failed each time. This time will be different because I am putting this goal out there in the public for accountability. 2. To follow the Insanity program as much as possible. I teach Turbo Kick two nights a week and take Taekwondo so I have to work around those days. I am also going for certification to teach Insanity at the end of this month so it is more important than ever to dig deep and work hard.
  12. This challenge I want to focus on agility and stamina for my workouts. I finished a program today that was a mix of P90x strength videos and running, with some yoga/core thrown in on days I felt like it. Yeah, a real scientific program. I've also been doing a 100 pushups training program which got me from 5 pushups at the beginning of the challenge to 20 by the end. I want to continue that. My husband has suggested his Insanity videos and I've been wanting to try those for a while. I have also signed up for a couple 5k's (fun runs) and I am trying to get a team together for the Tough Rhi
  13. I did it. I finished Insanity. Two months of sweat, spit, and cursing done. At the beginning of February I spontaneously choose to start Insanity, having sat on the videos lent to me by my sister-in-law for a couple of months. After the first week I was ready to see this through. Also, after the first week I was disturbed by how much it kicked my ass. A lot of people say 'it gets better' but in reality you just end up coping with it. In fact, by the beginning of the second month it just gets HARDER. Looking back, I'd give myself a 'B' grade for completing this. I did all the workouts from
  14. I recently started Insanity! and have been making steady progress. Currently I'm on Day 14, and today is my second Fit Test, which I'll post the results later this evening. WHY I'm doing Insanity is because my sister-in-law recently completed it and more or less dared me to try it. Of course I wasn't going to wuss out or make excuses- but I also was not ready for this. Going from steady running type cardio to this stuff was a shock and I'm still trying to get used to some of these exercises. My goal is to see it through to the end, though, and give it all I got and in the meantime, with wh
