  1. Carla has seen it all. Everybody experiences some rough times. There's no point in comparing her bad lot to anyone else's – she knows that. Still, she knows that since her caravan guard Mac betrayed her and left her for dead, she's been living on borrowed time while flying solo. Carla may be over the hill, but she's not ready to go just yet. If she's gonna survive, she'd better up her game. === I'm a first timer here, but am excited to get started. I've been above 200 pounds since 2015, and reached a high weight of 256.4 sometime back in March 2020. I could give excuses all day as to why it took me until late-October 2020 to start taking my obesity and lack of stamina seriously, but why bother? The most important thing is that I am doing something about it now. I am now 226 pounds at 5'4" and am to eventually get down to around am athletic 150. I also have 50 things to cross off of my bucket list by the time I turn 50 (10 and a half years from now), so I'll be working on those things too. My character and alterego is an NPC from Fallout 4 by the way, whom I will be creating backstory for. === Objective: Lose 1 percent or more of my bodyweight per week in this challenge. Also, establish positive habits that increase my knowledge and creativity. Motivation: I have been obese for more than five years and am determined to finally take charge of my weight, improving my health and fitness in the process. 1. Hydrate – the Wasteland is a tough place. Goal: Drink 96 oz. of Purified Water or more, five out of seven days. +1 point for every day 2. Craft and Consume More Effective Aid – two-hundred-year-old Cram and the occasional Stimpak won’t get it done. Goal: Eat at least two cups of cleanly prepared vegetables every day. +1 point for every day 3. Work on Endurance – you need to be able to run away when you encounter too many raiders at once. Goal: Keep heartrate up with moderate to intense exercise (120bpm up to 180bpm) for at least 20 minutes a day, five out of seven days. +2 points for every day 4. Work on Intelligence – the only way to stay alive in the Commonwealth is to be smarter than everyone else. Goal: Listen to at least one audiobook chapter from Why Buddhism is True, Let it Bleed or How to Write One Song each day. +1 point for every day 5. Work on Charisma – did I pull out my gamma gun too quickly with that one stingy fella from the Atom Cats Garage? Goal: Write 400+ words daily of a draft of my first podcast season. +2 points for every day of writing Experience Points Tally: 21-42 points || Increase 1 level 43-63 points || Increase 2 levels 64-80 points || Increase 3 levels 81+ points || Increase 4 levels
  2. Borrowing (stealing) Marmadukian's format. Thanks for the inspiration. About me I'm in my 40s and I work from home as a partner in a business that doesn't really bring in enough money to make ends meet. I was a skinny kid but put on weight when I got married (because my wife's such a damn good cook). I've struggled to keep that weight in check (because she's still a damn good cook); however, I've been making progress recently with the help of Wii Fit U, the NF bodyweight strength training routine, and the NF diet (we're on Level 2). I love the work I do, even if it doesn't bring in enough money, but I've also always dreamt of being an author (and an astronaut, but that may be beyond even NF's help). Epic quests Publish a best-selling novel complete a half-marathon have a business that is mostly automated but generates a good income every month Challenge quests Submit a short story to a writing competition complete the island running circuit in Wii Fit U start work on time n days of the working week for each week n of the challenge Notes on the Challenge quests I've already partially written the story; this will get me to finish it and summon the Triforce of Courage to actually send it off and have someone read it (and give their opinion) I started my journey to NF with Wii Fit U and I still use it for fitness gamification I work from home and it can be difficult to find the motivation or enthusiasm to start the tasks that pay so little.
  3. Hey guys! I know I’m a couple days late but I really want to try this. I’m a very busy student, track sprinter, and high jumper, and I tend to make excuses for not making improvements. So, I’m hoping posting here will make me more accountable especially with such a supporting community. I’ve always been very inflexible (I can barely touch my ankles or do a backbend) which poses many problems in track, especially for being a high jumper. So, my main goal for these four weeks is to improve my overall flexibility (and hopefully touch my toes or even the ground). My mini goals are: • Perform hamstring and hip mobility stretches at least 5 times a week, if not daily • Perform wrist and arm mobility stretches daily before bed • Sit down for a yoga session at least once a week I’ve never posted to a forum before and I’m hoping this works!!!
  4. Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lives in a pineapple under the sea? Gurdris the Imbiber! Flimsy and flabby and lazy is she! Gurdris the Imbiber! If nerdical fitness be something you wish Gurdris the Imbiber! Then drop in the gym, and sweat like a bitch! GURDRIS THE IMBIBER! GURDRIS THE IMBIBER! GURDRIS THE IMBIBER! GURDRIS THE IMBIBER! GURDRIIIIIIIIS THE IMBIBER! Yarr, now that the musical number is out of the way... Main Goal: Become Wonder Woman and maintain the weight loss streak I started when I needed to make my shiny new engagement ring fit. Challenge Goal: Stick to a routine of exercise, fitness and keeping on top of laundry. No more collecting underpants - my fiance needs clean ones. Fitness Complete a streak of 10 unmissed workouts, totalling 20 with my trainer. Workout days are Tuesday and Thursday after work, Sunday morning. Loot: trainer and the co-worker who works out with me offered to pay for my dinner if we go out together after 10 workouts. Nutrition Follow my trainer's diet plan (lean meat and veg, low carb, low fat, no junk). Loot: additional plates, knives and forks for our understocked kitchen Mental Read before bed for at least 30 mins every day, instead of Facebooking in bed. Loot: art supplies Life Do laundry twice a week (folded and put away) Loot: new clothes Bonus challenge: Complete listening to an 8hr audiobook (Foundation by Isaac Asimov). However, it may only be listened to underwater, while swimming laps. No swim, no book. No book... No loot. Loot: Full body massage at the spa. Ohhhh yessssss... I've done challenges before but I'm doing this one after a long time away, so consider it a respawn but I'm adding in the extra 2 because I've already been able to maintain some of these goals for most of a month. Scoring: Mental 20xp Fitness 25xp Nutrition 25xp Life 15xp Bonus 15xp -------------------- Total: 100xp Accountibility: I'll update this Challenge log daily with my successes and/or failures and/or spongebob gifs and/or other gifs/all the gifs / no jifs only gifs.
  5. Here is the list I have created for my character, I may even add more quests for no XP just to keep progression. But my main concern is becoming consistent.
  6. So after filling out the challenge worksheet, I've prepared a whole hosts of goals and challenges for myself, and to be honest, I'm really excited about it all! I've been on a “healthy living” hype for a few weeks, and though I can already feel myself losing interest I. Hoping my first challenge will wind me right back up again. I've got a whole load of great themes and stories for my challenges, but fore my first one I'm testing the waters with some simple, straight forward challenges, keeping it clear and focused. So here we go; Eat NF diet level 5 for 4 weeks Run x 2a week (least 20 mins) Body weight cardio x 3 a week (at least 1 circuit) Sign-up to scholastic course Broken down, it's going to look a bit like this; 6 out of 7 days I'm eating a vegetable with 2 meals a day, I'm not eating bread or pasta, and I've only eaten cake or sweets twice in the month. Twice a week (8 times in total) I go for a run. Aiming for about 2 miles, but doing at least 20 mins of running, or intermittent running, each time. Using the beginners body weight workout, I'm completing 3 workouts a week, each at east 1 full circuit, but aiming for 3! Signing up to an online course I've wanted to do for a while (but constantly making excuses about, like ‘I can't afford it’, ‘I don't have the time’). But I will sign up, try to complete a least one module, and reflect on whether or not it works for me at the end of the challenge. Worst outcome is I don't find it helpful and cancel the subscription, best outcome is that it encourages me to work on my portfolio and I produce some great work because of it! But whyyyy? Honestly, I want to be happy and healthy (don't we all?)) I want to feel good in my skin, I want to feel strong, I want to be able to do activities like canoeing and skiing and surfing, without the fear that I'll be worn out just 20 mins in. Also, another important thing for me is to become more productive and less lethargic. I want to chase my personal and professional dream, rather than deciding they are 'too hard' and retreating back to sofa with a bag of crisps... My over-arching goals are to: Get lean and strong (losing 10lbs, and reassessing from there) Create a strong portfolio of work Get organised Good luck everyone starting your first challenge here!
  7. "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might Beware my power- Green Lantern's light!" It's great to be back Rangers! My last challenge was a way for me to get back into the groove of things. However, it’s time to get busy again! I decided that it would also be cool to link things up with my epic quest. Here are my current level 1 epic quests Complete 8 English classes in 1 month = 25 xp Correct Sleeping schedule by 1 minute per day for 1 month = 25 xp Track expenses and Make a monthly budget and follow it for 1 month = 25 xp Create and start new workout plan for 1 month = 25 xp Here in this section I'll show my feats for the RangerPool challenge 1 Rangerly Feat! 2 3 4 Bonus Quest! There are strength in numbers, so with this in mind I plan to make a much better effort in staying in touch with everyone! This will be a part of a larger green lantern series based on willpower and conquering fear which all go towards earning a real green lantern ring! https://www.etsy.com/listing/493939316/injustice-emerald-green-lantern-ring?
  8. I love the game Witcher 3 and am just starting to get into Andrzej Sapkowski's books, so I thought that I'd use Geralt of Rivia as my character, even though I'm a lady. I could have gone with Ciri, I guess, but if I were going to cosplay anyone from the game it would be a lady version of Geralt. I've built a mini backstory for my character on my profile page. Check it out, if you feel like it! I just heard about Nerd Fitness from my husband. This is just the thing that I need! I had a wake up call this past week while I was helping my mom move into her new property in Oregon. I helped take down barbed wire fencing surrounding the property, hauled wood and heavy fence posts, and did some demolition work on the garage. The "wake up" part of all of this was that I thought that I was a lot stronger than I proved to be. I saw a bunch of photographs of myself working and saw that I was fluffier than I've ever been in my life. I stepped on two different scales and confirmed that indeed, I am the heaviest that I've ever been in my life. I am 5'6" and 214.2 pounds. EEEEEEEEP. My First Challenge: Strength Complete the "Ultimate 30 Day Squat Challenge" from Fitness Magazine. (I'll have to start that one a couple of days early - see the image for the challenge calendar.) Endurance Work up to completing four fifteen minute kettlebell circuits in week four of the challenge, using 15 pound bells. Powers Stick to healthy meal plans every day for a month with one "oops" day allowance per week. Submit one short story to a literary magazine and track it.
  9. I joined half-way through the last challenge so did a mini-challenge with the rebels (intermittent fasting, join a softball team, 2x bodyweight level 1 workouts per week). I'm having fun, and want to continue those things, but this challenge I want to add handstands, so I thought it was time to join the assassins :D. I need to not take it too hard, though - I have mild fibromyalgia and also hurt my quads last challenge (still not sure how). THIS CHALLENGE Diet: - Continue with Intermittent Fasting, for at least 5 out of 7 days per week (I plan to do this every day but want to build in for the possibility that context makes it very difficult). - If snacking, try to mainly stick to dark chocolate, fruit/veg (e.g. apple and nut butter), but nothing in particular is forbidden - Try to have a pea protein shake every day (my reward for the last challenge was a mini-blender) Fitness: - Do 2x Bodyweight workouts (right now, Level 1) per week (modifying where necessary, i.e. to help my quads heal, and eventually to upgrade to knee pushups) - Do at least 1 20s plank, for at least 5 days pw Assassin skills: I was absolutely terrified to do a wall handstand but I've now managed to hold one for 60s. I want to practice so I'm able to do this easily, and start attempting 1-2 seconds free (by taking my feet gently away from the wall). So my challenge is, as long as it isn't hurting my quads... - At least 30s wall handstand for at least 5 days pw Life: - Continue playing softball (again, quads dependent) - Identify a sewing project, and then do the project! My reward will be a pull-up/chin-up bar to put over my door Or an Assassin's Creed t-shirt to work out in!
  10. I just started here, and am going on my first epic quest! I cribbed it from the Sample Level 1 Revel Challenge. I'll build on that: Main Goal: Live longer by being healthier. Motivation: a have a 3-year-old, and that girl can outrun me. Baby steps: Diet Eat a vegetable with one meal every day Substitute one sugary coffee drink per day for black coffee or tea. Fitness Participate an active social game, like frisbee or kickball, at least once a week (preferably with your family or friends who are also trying to get started!) Level Up Your Life Notorious for being late? Start with making Mondays special - on Mondays you are never late for anything. Floss at least 15 seconds each day
  11. - DAWN OF THE SECOND DAY - What's up Rebels?! We're starting this challenge on time with ROUND 2! This month I'm really going to be focusing on discipline, and it's not going to be easy. This challenge will be featuring the 30 Days of Change by Darebee. I'm aware that this is already setting me up for an impossible goal since there's only 29 days in this month. I'm doing that on purpose - I hate the idea of failing (especially in front of all of you) so it'll motivate me to not miss a single day. THIS IS VERY MUCH AN EXPERIMENT. If I mess up, that's okay. I'm still starting out on this and I'm learning how I best work against challenges. Right now I think that the harder the challenge, the more I want to complete it. Next time I may try the opposite. I'm just seeing what works. So if I miss a day, or forget something, or just don't feel up to it, then I'm not going to get upset at myself. I'm learning even when I don't do things the way I planned. Even if I slip and fall while climbing up a mountain, I'll still be higher up than when I started. - READY PLAYER ONE - My Main Quest: Lose to 175 lbs: In my last challenge I went from 191.6 to 183.2, in the last few days I actually gained back 2 because I let stress and convenience decide what I ate. When it gets down to it, my discipline is weak. So even though my main quest is a weight goal, I'm going to get there by strengthening my resolve and willpower. COMPLETION = 25 EXP! DAILY Training:30 Days of Change: I'm going to be doing a VERY modified Level 1 every day. Much of the walking will be counted from work. The point isn't to do every task fully, but it's to try to do my best EVERY, SINGLE, DAY. My last challenge I was supposed to go to the gym once a week, and I didn't fully complete it because I always put it off till tomorrow. This time I can't. COMPLETION (29 DAYS) = 25 EXP! ; -1 EXP per day missed. Skill School: Sunday Food Prep: I say 'food prep' because I'm not going to make all my meals that day, I'm just going to prep the ingredients, AT LEAST FOUR CONTAINERS PER WEEK. I want my main focus to be on teaching myself to regularly be active and get some inertia going, so what I eat will be secondary in concern. Most of my food is going to be paleo, and I use MFP to calorie count; I'm not being foolish about what I eat, I just want to allow myself some wiggle room I wouldn't have if I planned every meal a week in advance. 16+ CONTAINERS = 20 EXP ; 9-12 CONTAINERS = 15 EXP ; 5-8 CONTAINERS = 10 EXPSomething New: Every week I need to successfully make a food or drink that I've never made before. I'm a level 0 in cooking so that won't be hard. The challenge is the word 'successfully', as I'm prone to obliterating the meals I attempt to cook. So the food must be edible. 4+ EDIBLE MEALS = 15 EXP ; 2-3 EDIBLE MEALS = 10 EXP ; 1 EDIBLE MEAL = 5 EXP Side Quest: Support the Rebellion: This month I want to really start helping other rebels, so I'm going to follow at least 3 other topics and comment regularly. Y'all have already been a big help to me, I want to help too! (No EXP reward here.) Thanks for stopping by! Good luck everyone!
  12. Greetings, fellow warriors! I'm brand new here. Ooh shiny new, as in just joined today. I thought I'd give a brief intro to my warrior kin before I lay out my challenges. My geekery I'm a Tolkienphile. I love the movies, the books, the collecting - the whole bit. I even study Tolkien via online courses. I have many nerd passions, but this one runs the deepest. I also love playing MMOs, which I can happily combine with my Tolkien love in Lord of the Rings Online. My icon is my dwarf Rune-keeper, whom I capped just a couple of weeks ago. I'm into a lot of other geeky pursuits, including attending SDCC yearly, but I could be here all night listing them all. I'd rather getting this posted and jump right in! About my journey My goal is to get fit. Or rather, get fit again. Just 4 years ago I was lifting weights and even did a couple of triathlons for the challenge of it. I was pretty fit. Then I just let it all go. I can't even say why or how it seemed to happen quickly, but I've spent too much time remembering how fit I was and thinking of doing something about it "next week." I think connecting with other nerds who are similarly motivated is really going to be the motivation and encouragement I need. I'm so happy to be here! I have about 80 lbs to lose, and some serious reworking of my eating habits. I know I can do it - I've done it once already. I just need to get back on that track. My goal is to get back to my previous fitness and then improve on it. I want to return to Olympic lifting, my favorite, and better all of my previous PRs. I also want to lose enough weight that I feel comfortable returning to crossfit, another love. Right now, I Current challenge I'm going to take a few suggestions from the Level 1 challenge page for my first challenge. Diet Eat a vegetable with at least one meal per day Eat one fresh fruit every day Fitness Strength training 3x/week (I think I read that there are suggested workouts on NF - I need to find those) Level Up Your Life Meditating 5 minutes a day So there it is, and here I am! I look forward to getting to watching my progress and cheering everyone on in theirs!
  13. I DID IIIIIIIIIIIT!!!! On my fourth Challenge attempt, I finally got it right, and as a Level 1 I can now finally - finally! - join your beautiful, amazing Guild. My name is Solunaria! Well, El, actually, or El-shine. Gonna become SO BADASS it's gonna be crazy. But I'm keeping simple, for now - strengthening the instrument, laying down the bedrock. My plans for the first challenge of the 2016 season is posted here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/75823-the-priestess-of-the-assassins-order/ I'll neaten this up later, but I wanted to say hello - and do a little victory dance in the cat club. I'd love to meet some of you! Hit me up! The more flippy acrobatic dexterity friends THE BETTER. Much love, ~ Sol
  14. Hi This is my first 4 week challenge, I'm level 0, as I'm so out of shape mentally and physically at the moment I need to work up to level 1! I've signed up to walk to Mordor, starting today, so in addition to that, for my first quest I have chosen: Diet Eat a vegetable with at least one meal each day. Swap out one soda a day with water. Fitness: Complete the BBWW 1x per week (this one will be my real challenge at the moment) Level Up My Life: 10 minutes of meditation daily wish me luck!

  17. Introduction Hello everyone! My name is Nannoo and this is my first *real* challenge! I say it's my first real challenge because even though I technically signed up for a challenge over a year ago I never actually followed through. This time, though, I will! I'm a junior in college studying computer science, so I write a lot of code. Quantity over quality, right? I am 6'3" and I weight about 340 lbs. Main Quest Lose 50 lbs before the beginning of Fall semester. Last summer I told myself that I would lose weight and be happier with myself. Well, that never happened. So this summer I want to set a realistic goal that I can work towards and look forward to. Quest 1 Walk for 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week. I would try to run, but I have a knee injury for which I will be getting surgery in May. For now, I'll just walk A = Average of >=3 days per week, B = Average between 2 and 3 days per week, C = Average between 1 and 2 days per week, F = Average between 0 and 1 days per week. My Endomondo workouts can be found here: https://www.endomondo.com/workouts/user/2166428 Quest 2 Track my food on MyFitnessPal every. Single. Day. A = 42 days, B = 35 days, C = 28 days, D = 21 days, F = <21 days MyFitnessPal profile: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/profile/nannooskeeska Quest 3 Conciously eat paleo at least 2 days a week. A = 12 days, B = 10 days, C = 8 days, D = 6 days, F = <6 days Motivation My motivation when I entered this challenge was originally my girlfriend, and that I wanted to be the person I thought she deserved. Well, we broke up. It was mutual, and we both agree it's for the better, but it sucks. So my new motivation is to become the person I think I deserve to be. Someone who is confident in himself and knows that he can do anything he sets his mind to. Life Quest My main life goal during this challenge is to consistently use You Need a Budget (warning: referral link!) to handle my money. I've had trouble with spending my money without really thinking about it, so I feel like I need to get my finances better in order. I've been using YNAB since the beginning of this month, and so far I really like it a lot, but I want to make it a goal not to let it become something that I'm obsessed with and then abandon after while. A = Use YNAB consistently throughout the challenge, B = Stop using YNAB Thanks for reading! I hope to see you all in the forums!
  18. Did my first lift of this challenge today Squat: 180 lbs: 5x5 Overhead Press 115 lbs: 3, 4, 2, 4, 2 (Dropping down to 100 for next lift) Deadlift 230 lbs: Standing Barbell Curls 60lbs: 5x5 Skull Crushers: 55lbs. 5x5 For the most part, everything felt good except the Overhead Press. I've felt this plateau coming for a while. Hopefully de-loading and working back up will get me through it. Thursday is Squats, Bench, Barbell Row, and more Curls and Skull Crushers. When I got up at 7:30 to workout, my wife looked at me like I was crazy.
  19. “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.†― Frank Herbert, Dune Your body is strong. You are strong. You got this. WANTED: people who want to reach their current goals by expanding their knowledge base and multi-classing. Sometimes, you gotta take a level in cleric if you want to be a better paladin. I'm also looking for people who want to expand on their current strengths by taking the scenic route to get there. Generally speaking, I want to partner up with people whose goals push them towards trying new and exciting things. Want to go paleo by learning new recipes? Want to lose ten pounds by walking to Mordor? Want to become a morning person by taking a 5:30 am spin class? This is the group for you! HOW DO WE MEET THESE GOALS?: By scaring the crap out of yourself. Seriously, that's how we're going to do this. Provided it doesn't put you in legitimate danger, we're going to meet our goals here by tackling the things that are scary. We're going to look at what scares us, why it scares us, and find a way to power through that fear to find success on the other side. We thrive on adversity. We will fall flat on our faces, and sometimes We will "fail". But, we are strong. So long as we face our fears and move forward, we can not fail. ORGANIZATION: Totally up to us. I was hoping to hang with some people on skype, maybe rock a group call once in awhile. It's whatever everyone's comfortable with and capable of. If you're my team, I want to be available to you. All motivational speaking aside, I hope to hear from y'all!
  20. This accountabilibuddies group really has nothing to do with Star Trek (sorry to disappoint!). But we're the Wesley Crushers not the Wesley Crushers!! This is my first every accountabilibuddies group, but I've been doing NF 6 week challenges for over a year now. Some successfully, and others less successfully. I'd love to use my experiences to help others, especially those starting out! So why the Wesley Crushers? This: Sometimes, even on Nerd Fitness, I feel like I don't belong. Which is ridiculous, because NF is pretty much a place for those of us that don't belong. But sometimes I just don't feel "nerdy enough", especially when I see other people's huge story-like challenges centered around epic nerd things like Firefly or LOTR. I told a friend here that, and he sent me the above video...I might have cried a bit. So if you feel like you don't belong, and you need some support, this is the group for you. If your goals are generally focusing on eating right (whatever that means to you) and moving more/better/stronger/etc. you'll fit right in (if these aren't your goals, that's okay too!) I hope to see this group fill up and have some fun! If you have any questions or anything, check out my challenge thread or PM me!
  21. Aye, me bonny lasses, join us on our hunt fer fortune n' adventure. Set sail with us as we ply the waves in search of true treasure - freedom n' friendship! We are the Pirate Queens... Fierce in our commitment to our goals and determined to pursue our destinies wherever our dreams may take us. We raise our standard and set sail!

  22. SUMMARY In order to become who I want to be, I want to setup the foundations. After these first 6 weeks, I want to achieve the minimum level necessary to start pursuing the rest of my goals: train parkour, finish losing weight, keep lifting heavy things, etc. My daily battle log is at: Gunslinger born if anyone reading this feels like checking it out. If this was a book, this first challenge would serve as the prologue. I intend to gain the initial strength and momentum to get things going (thus the title of this thread).

  23. Name's Charlie. I have 9 years of MMA (mixed martial arts) up my sleeve, but since an injury last year I've had to stop. I'd love to get back to the level of fitness I was at and maybe get a little better at other things too, like running which I avoided like the plague, oops. On my rest days, I hope to dedicate myself to yoga to increase flexibility and balance. An example week may be Monday - running Tuesday - Upper body strength training Wednesday - Interval training (running) Thursday - Core strength training Friday - running Saturday - Lower body strength training Sunday - Yoga Main goal To run 5k Missions Run at least 3 times a week Eat Paleo as much as possible Strength train every other day (Sundays off) Side quests Do at least 1 proper pull up Drink more water Life quest Stop procrastinating and finish my Uni application

  25. Hi awesome rebels! I am a newbie here, have enjoyed browsing through a lot of the blog posts, loving the various brilliantly creative workouts and finally discovered the forum, right on time for the next 6 week challenge, so I thought, I'll join right in, yay! I am pole dancing since well over a year now - that one came as quite a surprise to me, but it turned out I absolutely love it and am literally hooked now - and I discovered this finally motivated me to start working out regularly to have the necessary strength. Even as a kid I was always mesmerized by acrobats and athletes in dancing (like ice skating dancers, or people on the trapeze in the circus) and marveled how great it must feel to have such strength and body control, to be flying through the air like that and be so graceful... well I am still marveling, and surprisingly found it is actually possible to learn, even for a slow learner like me. I'm bright on many things, but sports take a while with me. So this might explain my goals for this 6 week challenge, here we go: Main Goal: Build more strength (especially upper body) and body control measurable goals to that: - do a headstand without aid or wall - do 3 proper pull-ups without aid - hold an inversion on pole without hands Edit for S.M.A.R.T: I do think that is totally reasonable and doable, yes as Current status on each goal: - I can do a headstand against the pole - I can nearly (aaaaaaaaargh) do one pull-up at the moment - I can let go of one hand during the inversion, but not yet both So, I would like to do this - with the arms like that, just upside down: pretty basic I know, but for me it will be a Grand moment and I believe in celebrating all of those Quests: - do Angry Bird Workout 3x a week - train pole 3x a week (twice at home, once at class) - do yoga on break days (even if it's just 15 minutes) Grade for each quest: A = 17 to 18 workouts, B = 13 -16 workouts, C = 10 to 12 workouts, D = 7 to 9 workouts, E = 5 to 6 workouts, F = 4 workouts or less Edit for S.M.A.R.T: - the Angry Bird workout is such a no-brainer, even with warm-up and cool down it doesn't take long, yet trains especially my weaker parts (i.e. arm strength, upper body), so nooooooo excuses here - I did now always train at least once a week on the pole at home and once at class, so fitting in that third time is possible and I KNOW it will make a huge difference in my progress - which is my ultimate motivation, more fun - I used to do some yoga every day and got slacking now, this is meant to get me back into it without taking too much away from my pole training Life quest: - finish translation project (57 pages to go) Grade: A = 50 - 57 pages, B = 40+ pages, C = 30+ pages, D = 20+ pages, E = 10+ pages, F = less than 10 pages Edit for S.M.A.R.T: doing two pages a day should fit in my schedule, if I take the discipline for it and once I am into it, I love it, so usually do more. Which helps buffer days, where I for some reason can't after all. Also this is really just my own goal here, I don't have any official deadline by which I must be done. No stress if I do fall sick or anything. Motivation: have great fun at Level 2 pole training starting in January, enjoy the magic feeling of "flying" and being able to do stuff, I never thought I could being able to share the awesome book I'm translating with those waiting for it already Exciting stuff!
