  1. Helloooo! This is my first challenge and I am a complete newbie to NF! I've read several NF articles & figured I'd give it a try! I'm lacking the area for support in my goals or where to even look! So I thought I'd try NF! By day I work as an architect and am currently in season coaching softball at a local college. A year or two ago I tired rock climbing outdoors (scored a $25 4hour deal!) and really enjoyed it - it was the first activity I didn't COMPARE myself to someone else. Never had a climbing place close enough to really go and train that was convenient for my schedule/location - NOW in July there will be a gym 20 min from home (yayyy!). Then, this past Friday I tried an Intro to Aerial Dance class at a new gym and loved it super excited about it (only 15 min from me)! In the last few years I've put on extra weight (20 lbs) since becoming part of a blended family, I have found myself putting everyone else first and have let myself become last in line. Lately, I've been realizing you cannot pour energy (the positive kind) from an empty well! It's time to get my energy and health back. Better food choices, moving everyday, get more sleep! QUEST: MAKE "ME" TIME A PRIORITY SO I CAN LOSE 20LBS & HAVE MORE ENERGY Baby Steps: 1. Follow the PiYo/5k program (6x/wk = 3 run & 3 PiYo) I found to get myself moving, build a base in running - while incorporating cross training (something I forgot my last half a few years ago!) 2. Eat one vegetable EACH meal. 3. Avoid foods with more than 5g sugar in a serving 3 days/wk. 4. Go to bed 10 minutes earlier (I have been really bad at getting my 7-8 hours lately!) Reward: Beginner Silks class @ Aerial Studio!
  2. LEVEL 1 REBEL CHALLENGE: Diet Eat a vegetable with two meals every day Eat at least 3 times a day Fitness Walk every day (15 minutes) Level Up Your Life (Pick One) Have a 5 minute dance party each day
  3. Diet (pick two) Swap out one soda per day with water - Already done!! Eat a vegetable with one meal every day - Done!! Reduce fast food consumption by 50% - Done...so next level Stop fast food all together. Take one processed snack you have each day and replace it with a healthy protein, fruit, or vegetable - I will work on this this month. Substitute one sugary coffee drink per day for black coffee or tea. - Work on this as well. Fitness (pick one) Walk every day (5 minutes) - this could even be in the form of standing up at your desk and walking around the office. - Done!! Complete the NF bodyweight workout at least 1x a week - accepted 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!) - I will try my best Level Up Your Life (Pick One) Put $1 in a jar (or savings) every day - I will try my best Notorious for being late? Start with making Mondays special - on Mondays you are never late for anything. - I will try this too. 5 minutes meditation daily - I will try this too Say one positive thing to yourself each morning when you look in the mirror - For next round Have troubles keeping the kitchen clean? Clean for 2 minutes each night before bed or first thing in the morning (when you're waiting for your coffee to brew, maybe?). Focus on one small area and keeping that one clean, and then once you're good at that one, start to expand it. - kind of in process Floss at least 15 seconds each day - Done Reduce caffeine consumption by 50% - Done Make small talk with at least one person each week (or day!) you wouldn't normally (could be on your commute, at work, in line at the grocery store) - Very difficult one for me but I will try!! Have a 5 minute dance party each day - Next time Go to bed 10 minutes earlier each week - Accepted!! And the journey begins.... Thank you Steve!! and everyone one in the rebellion. Please keep me motivated and on track. I will do the same
  4. Like any journey there is preparation. This is what this post is, soon the journey will begin for real. I am currently gathering the equipment I will need and mentally preparing myself for what will come. I will step on ground both familiar and new...but will push myself further and harder than I have before. There is a need to move away from the old me and find the new me that wants to be released. I want to participate in activities that are only viewed from the outside, taking on challenging adventure races (Spartan Race, Tough Mudder...) return one day to the Krav Maga classes that I once loved, but no longer would be able to keep up with. A new dawn will rise soon.
  5. BelleRose’s First Challenge I used to swim a lot but over the years it’s become less frequent. I want to get back into it because it always made me feel happy as well as healthy. Main Quest By the last end of this challenge I will consistently swim at least 3 kilometres over a week Goal 1. Diet – lay the ground work of eating healthier. Over the last few years my diet has been terrible so I want to bring it back to being more balanced. During this challenge I will aim to eat 2 pieces of fruit a day and to eat healthy home cooked meals 5 out of 7 days. Goal 2. Daily exercise – increase the amount of daily physical activity. Being a master’s student, I spend a lot of my time sitting down studying. I want to increase by daily activity in small increments to help build up the strength and stamina I’ll need to achieve my main quest. For this challenge I will do 30 minutes of dedicated physical exercise such as walking, swimming or beginners core work. Goal 3. Will Power – pick a small task that easily gets over looked and stick to it. I feel that in order to really benefit from this challenge I needed to add in something related but not directly linked to my exercise and diet gaols. For this challenge I’ll wipe down my kitchen every night before I go to bed. It’s something quick and easy but often difficult to do it consistently.
  6. Introduction: I am Superdeformedchibi. I love anime, superhero movies, Star Wars, LOTR, GoT, Harry Potter, and Japanese RPGs. I was a biology major and consider myself to be a mad scientist (and the student loans to prove it, lol!) I have two bunny rabbits and a wife that I love. I'm out and proud pansexual. I suffer from depression/anxiety and PCOS (it puts me at risk for Type 2 diabetes). I have been struggling to lose weight, gain energy and get my groove back for the past 3 months and then I found Nerd Fitness and discovered that I can make this fun for myself by accepting a 6 week challenge. But the challenge is just the beginning. I don't want diabetes! It's time to level up my life! Main Quest: To reach my goal weight of 124 lbs. (I am a 34 year old female, 5' 0" and currently 144 lbs.) Goals: 1) Do the Beginner Bodyweight Workout 3 times per week (I haven't been doing strength training before) 2) Walk an extra 20 mins 4 times per week (I already walk 10 mins to and then from the bus stop 5 days a week, this would be an additional 20 mins) 3) Prepare all of my own meals 5 days out the week (I have a bad habit of ordering take out because I feel like I have no energy to make my own food. It's unhealthy and expensive and it has to stop!) Life Quest: I'd like to save up $1000. I've never just had $1000 in my savings account before and I need to start learning how to save. I'm going save at least $25 from my paychecks (that's every 2 weeks).
  7. This is my first time doing a challenge and I'm super excited! ! My Main Quest is: I wanna build muscle and feel stronger and healthier. First mission: I am going to eat at least 3000 calories every day with quality foods. â— I'm a college student so I'm a little tight on cash. My main goal with this mission is to eat the least amount of processed foods possible under my budget while reaching my 3000 calorie goal each day. Grading: every day per week A: 3,000 calories or higher B: 3,000-2,800 calories C: 2,800-2,500 calories D: 2,500 or less calories F: I drop out or stop trying Second mission: exercise on alternating days, in other words 4 times a week. â—I'm gonna be doing the level 1 Bodyweight training because I don't have any equipment at home. I've always been active but I'm really excited to start working out and stick to it. As a pre med student, I have a busy life and it can be easy to find an excuse so I'm gonna need the support on this one. I'll be working out in the afternoons, about 5:00pm. Grading: per week A: 4 times B: 3 times C: 2 times D: only one F: I stopped exercising Third mission: do a 20-30 min walk/jog every morning. â—Again, could use the support with this one but I really think this will help with waking me up in the morning and feeling more productive and alert. These walks will be at 7:30 am so that it can fit with my study schedule at the moment. Grading: every day per week A: didn't miss a day B: missed 1 day B-: missed 2 days C: missed 3 days C-: missed 4 days D: missed 5 days F: stopped running
  8. I'm very excited about my first challenge. Sorry I'm a week late to the party, but I have spent the last week pursuing my goals so I'll share them here with you.

My specific missions: Do a weight exercise program three days a weekReplace beverages with water (except for the occasional glass of wine!)Pursue a paleo dominated diet (not ready to give up my artisanal bread just yet)My life quest: Finally finish that novel I've been writing for, I don't know, eight years.
