  1. I was feeling inspired, and moved by something that I read in Steve's profile... And realized when I was writing to him, that this was the Battle Log entry I've been trying to write for the last two weeks... Though seriously, it could be that Bastille's album Bad Blood as a soundtrack played a big part... Here is what I said to him: Steve, I know you get a bunch of messages from your followers... So I'll try (I say try, because I am a woman after all... And a long winded one at that) to keep this short. I joined because your newsletters are fantastically entertaining and completely on par wit
  2. Inspirational as bleep. So I've packed on some weight. It's been a rough couple of months. I can't really complain that much, because in general, my life is really good. It's just been... hectic, I guess is the best word, with all of my time being taken up by my various other responsibilities. My wife is full-time in university, my kids have activities all week, my dog needs walks at 5am and 5pm, and I'm still working full time and trying to make it as a writer. I probably bitch about this every time, but I have ALL of this energy going out into
  3. GREETINGS REBELLION!!I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself. It
  4. Kuros, through passed down stories that have become nothing more than legend, is known to most as the "Knight Warrior of the Books of Excalibur," but few would know it upon meeting this unassuming hero. Less bulky warrior and more agile ranger, with a mind sharper than any blade (except Brightsword, of course), Kuros is a servant of light, far more humble than the picture this old keeper of lore will paint for you. Always cloaked and seldom seen, it would be easy to mistake him for an assassin (a poor one at that if he is indeed seen), or a scout. Alas, this is not the case. Jack of all trades
  5. Since this is a Nerd fitness forum i figured this would be a good topic. What are your personal inspirations from tv/games/ anny other nerdy stuff. Personally i get a lot of inspiration form the assassins creed games, Arrow on tv and Vikings. Assassins creed. This because is envy their way of life and feel a lot of empathy for their creed. i one day hope to achieve some level of skill in Parkour. Arrow. For me Arrow is about a superhero without any special abilities and had to learn everything he knows, and train his body to superiority. it is inspiring. Vikings. this is simple, because v
  6. Arnold coined the phrase of stay hungry. Arnold during the film pumping iron talks about what it is to stay hungry, but to summarize it in my own words it means to constantly find new ways to challenge yourself in order to become a better you. Joe talks of wanting evolution of his body in his book by making his body grow in a functional sense by evolving it to its strongest form. Inspired by the messages of these two men have l decided to become hungry for evolution. Hi everyone. I used to use this site a lot a long time ago and went by the screen name Lanithroe. Im back and Im h
  7. “Energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Thus power generation processes and energy sources actually involve conversion of energy from one form to another, rather than creation of energy from nothing.” The law of conservation of energy. It’s an irrefutable fact of physics. We talk about it a lot in relation to weight loss. Calories in, calories out. But I wonder; what would this look like in terms of the way I spend my daily energy? The way I spend my life? I tend to think about some things as "requiring energy" while others don't. But th
  8. Revenge of The Loft It has been a while! Welcome back to The Loft! A simple a humble space for all those rebels out there who wish to level up their creative side! This group is here to offer inspiration and support for all the writers, musicians, and artists out there. In the past threads I have been blown away with all the interaction, advice and sharing that has gone on and I hope to have that continue this time around. For myself I will admit that life has thrown some curveballs along the way that I have been pleasantly surprised with or completely overwhe
  9. Return to The Loft Welcome back to The Loft! A fun little space where we can share our love of creativity and help inspire each other to keep pursuing our passions. Whether you're a hobbyist, full time artists/writer/crafter or simply curious and wanting to get started, this is an awesome group for you! We had a lot of fun last time and I was really excited about how much interaction, activity and discussion we were having! I'm really happy that so many people had a good time with this group and I hope to keep that momentum going as we move onto the next challen
  10. I love movies and frequently find inspiration in them. I wonder what some other rebels think of great movies that inspire.
  11. Hey, guys! So, I've really come to appreciate you guys. All the encouragement and the pick me ups, the good jobs and what the hells. I just joined the Academy today (been on the forums for about 3 months), and I got to a part where they ask you to find "the big why" of why you want to get fit. Steve said to take a pen and paper. Well, this IS the rebel army, so, I started typing instead. The weird thing was, as I started typing, I just kept going. I couldn't stop. Before I knew it, I had dug deep and found out for the first time why I want to get fit. At first, a few months ago, it was "I want
  12. ~Hungry For Evolution~ Thank you for stopping by and visiting my battle log! First let me share with you the two men that have inspired me to have the motto of being hungry for evolution. Joe Manganiello & Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold coined the phrase of stay hungry. Arnold during the film pumping iron talks about what it is to stay hungry, but to summarize it in my own words it means to constantly find new ways to challenge yourself in order to become a better you. Joe talks of wanting evolution of his body in his book by making his body grow in a functional sense by evolving it to

    Turbo Kick!

    Checking in and starting my next challenge! I'm a couple weeks behind from starting, I started a new job, so that's exciting! I've been going strong with my weight loss! Today I weighed in at 202.2! That's 40.4 lbs down!! Getting close I know I only have 10 days left in this challenge, but I wanted to throw it in there to keep the motivation going! Level 2 Krav Maga has been going strong! Love it so much. Pushing really hard to be Level 3 by the end of the year, and maybe Level 1 instructor as well!! Main Quest: Lose more than/maintain (42.6lbs) by September 1. This number is from st
  14. This is just a bit of a ramble about my weightloss story, which is neither incredibly dramatic nor exceptional, but I thought I'd share a few thoughts! Feel free to skip this one, but you might find it a little inspirational. :3 I recently revisited the United States, staying with the same people I did last time, and the difference was dramatic: the first time, I had been about 88kg of lazy teenager (edit: this may have been higher, as I never took pictures or recorded my weight at this stage in my life, I wonder why...). I had my reasons, and I don't hate on myself for messing my body up in
  15. Hey there! I'm new around here... just getting started. My first goal is to friend 5 people who have been part of this Nerd Fitness community for awhile, specifically people who have some experience, have gained some success, and who have been around the block. If my own goal is longevity, then it's best to focus on longevity. What better way to start out? I know this is only a minor thing, but that's sort-of the point! I want to get a few quick wins and build upon my little successes. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I want build momentum and move towards real successes. What
  16. That is a fantastic title, I'm fairly proud of myself for that! Anyway, I feel that missing more than 2 weeks of the current challenge is enough to want to wait until the next one starts to officially log there. That is to say, I will still sort out and start on my goals RIGHT NOW, but I won't join a 6-week challenge until the next one starts (Feb 23 - April 5 I believe is the next one) So a preview and toe-dipping-to-check-the-temperature is what this is, I suppose. There's always room for tweaks and scootching to adjust for the busying of schedules or for more leisure time as it comes
  17. My brother is the typical case of an unhealthy gamer. He's got a part time job in retail, still lives with our mum, knows he's overweight and out of shape, but continues to fuel himself with fast food and lots of it. He's completely sedentary and apparently addicted to his gaming - he comes home and sits in front of the computer immediately, like it's a safety blanket for him. Last time I saw him he looked clammy and pale with bags under his eyes, unhappy and bored. Problem is, he's still a teenager at heart and rebukes anyone's efforts to suggest a healthy meal or a walk once in a while. H
  18. I just wanted to encourage the posting of everyone's favorite bodyweight practitioners performing amazing feats of strength and skill! What's the most amazing thing you've ever seen? For me it would have to be Arevik Seyranian, the high manna dislocate to handstand at around 8:00 in this video is just unreal! The one arm press handstands are pretty amazing too.
  19. There are so many awesome people out there in the world of fitness and health and many of them are causes for much inspiration and motivation. Now i wonder, do you have any special role models or persons that inspire you and makes you think "damn, that dude is awesome, I want to be like him" or "man, that girl is insanely fit, I want to learn how she does it" ? At first, I thought I´d ask you only to mention one, but I found that I could´t do it myself, so you can mention several if you like . For me, I´m particularly inspired by these persons: - Alex Honnold: Bad ass rock climber who c
  20. So I'm off to Serifos in late October 2014. My goal is to lose as much weight as possible, but sensibly, between now and then...but also changing general lifestyle. Anyway, I'm currently 5'6 and am a size 20-22 (UK), depending on what style of clothing I'm wearing. Today I needed to get a nice summer outfit that would be a goal to fit into. Here it is: From Tesco, so not expensive. The top is loose and will have a tanktop with it eventually. It's a size 14. The shorts are a size 14. 22 to size 14 is a lot... but I tried them on earlier and, surprisingly, there is only 3 inches that I ne
  21. As much as we would all love it to be, life is not a montage.....there is no fast forwarded, quick snip-it reel of you doin' some work to hype inducing Kenny Loggins music resulting in achieving 6 months worth of training in 6 and a half minutes!! Life is a grind....it is the day to day challenge to continue doin' what you must in order to achieve your goal....the constant fight of will power against those things which would stand in your way....and the knowledge that no matter what you have to keep pushing to matter how far you have come, or how far you have to go!! As any of you that h
  22. Hi all! This will be my first official quest. I joined the Level 1 Rebels in the last week of the previous challenge, and am looking forward to being able to level up this time around. My quest is the same as last time, although with my previous week of experience I am far more knowledgeable about what works for me with regards to exercise, and what will keep me motivated and on track. So here is my mission: Krunchy's Main Quest: to lose fat and gain muscle. Ideally at a fat loss of 2 lbs a week. My Three Dragons: 1. No flour and no glucose, every day. Note that I didn't say 'no
  23. The wonderful life of being healthy, it's a far fetched and almost unrealistic goal for many of this earths inhabitants. The inspiration felt as you lie in your bed at night, saying over and over that tomorrow will be the day when you wake up and make a change. You research weight loss on google, trying to no avail to discover a secret, an easy way out. But when you see the horror stories that come with the supplements and pills, you finally realize that the one way you will look good in that now to small bathing-suit is pure fitness. Maybe you make the one mistake we all do our first time, y
  24. Found this in a German newspaper a couple of days ago and thought it was just awesome. These guys are well into their 70s and are still going strong. Seriously, I'm under 40 and I can't do a planche ! http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/die-seniorenmeisterschaft-beim-turnfest-2013-fotostrecke-96893.html
  25. Hey guys, I just want to start off by saying I love Nerd Fitness and the support that comes from the site! Lately I have had a string of bad luck that has led me to kind of get into a funk. Besides going into the gym and hitting the weights hard, and training for a career in the fire department, nothing else seems to really be working out for me. My friends have all but disappeared out of my life, which leads to a lot of lonely weekends, my girlfriend dumped me a few months ago, I just turned 30 and I am still not making a good enough living to move out of home, I never finished colle
