INTRO 'Olo, you lot! Welcome to my quiet little corner. I am Haniya (pronounced Hun-nee-yah) a Nerdy, Sporty, DND[currently watching Critical Role]loving, Comic book enthusiast with a penchant for arts, Video games, Books, Disney movies, music and Mystery Murder shows [Stranger Things, Sherlock, Killing Eve, The Umbrella Academy and Elementary anyone?] also Neil Gaimann because good omens is a fantastic show and is worth fangirling about. Today I have entered as a ranger to challenge myself. Hopefully, my experiment will help me build my habits and my body. I feel like my true self best fits in this sneaky, lean, strong and dangerously cool class because strength and stamina are the two things that I ideally want and we all wish to master. Hence, here I am and here I go! BACK STORY TIME: WE all know how our health is the MOST important thing in the world--physical, emotional and mental as well--especially when you've been obese half your childhood. Its hard to get back on that health horse when like half of your house hold isnt primed for it at all. Regaining my good healthy self has been a massive struggle, no less a bumpy roller coaster ride of high and lows. Well, I've been at it for quite a while with the NERDS--actually listening and enjoying the company of the people--thus, naturally, I come running back to thine fine health, happiness institute of fittitude! [Gedit] Even though i hate typing, i do try to update as often as I can. Well, anyways! I live in Pakistan (south east asia) where carbohydrate is as important and as common as air and I am not joking! OUR DIET AND CUISINE IS JUST FULL OF IT AND EVEN IF YOU TRIED, YOU JUST CANT SHAKE IT OFF AND IGNORE IT! BUT. I. WANT. TO. CHANGE. MYSELF. I DON'T WANT TO BE ADDICTED ANYMORE AND THAT'S MY MAIN MISSION HERE! BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY! I will go slow this time and not overwhelm myself as much as I am prone to so I'll just go over the basics of my mission. Cus. I. Can. And. I. Love. To. Sound. Very. Official. OH, SHALL WE MOVE TOWARDS MY BASE OF OPERATIONS?! *drumroll* OP 1: Take control of the wheel, agent! As the new agent of SHIELD, it is your duty to physically take care of what you put in your body. Filling in the shoes of Natasha Romanoff is going to be a hard job, recruit, so I suggest you take those shoes seriously and work hard! *There we go, guys. Big shoes to fill* So, clean eating and portion control is the key. Refined sugar and fried stuff is your ENEMY. IT'S YOUR HYDRA! You must defeat the bad side! *telegram* Recruit! We are not that cruel, you know, so we are allowing you a two day cheat treat. Aren't we cool?! Of-course, we are, we are SHIELD! OP 2: Find the lost Tomb of Rorustan You want to be the next Lara Croft? You want to go on adventures and move mountains like her, yes? Change the course of time and history like her? Then, you got to train like her! Her strong and Charismatic body took years and years of hard work and perseverance! Can you keep up? *CanI?* Journey to the lost tombs, human and bring forth power! My objective is to run and do body weight exercises (darebee and skipping rope) 3-4 times in a week with two days rest period. Walk for 20-30 mins daily. CAN YOU HEAR THE SPIRITS TALKING? YES! I DO! I CAN HEAR LARA CROFT! MASTER, I CAN HEAR HER WHISPERS FROM THE INSIDE, SPEAKING OUT TO ME (awksslipawaytoyonder) OP 3: Bend it like Korra! Before she was the avatar, Korra knew nothing of her powers and how to control them but with the help of her teachers and peers, she blossomed into the strongest being we know today! Want to Bend it like Korra? *Heck Yeah* then you must dedicate some time to your education; to learn and grow like the avatar. Daily one or two videos that'll inspire you or give you knowledge about the world and beyond. Study spanish: Duolingo and Memrise streaks, audio lessons from Pimsleur and YouTube video lessons. Dont forget to make notes in your notebook. Meditate to calm your souls. A clear and tension free mind is a happy mind! TAI CHI PRACTICE! Watch David Dorian Ross videos and practice along. New videos everyday to build your 103 long form practice. OP 4: "Be as flexible as Kamala Khan" SUPERHERO BY DAY, REGULAR GAMER CHILD BY NIGHT! Balancing your hero and human life takes a lot of work but you have to do this in order for the world to make sense plus, fun time is fun time! So, here are my humanly duties towards a good future:- Journal writing: habit tracking, Spanish progress and recording my days key features as bullet points to make my life easy Updating nerd fitness with my journey in the form of ratings A-F [A being super awesome and F Epic Wamp] and supporting new people and their journies! *POWER RANGERS, METAMORPHOSIS! Oh, wrong fandom* Read more books by adhering to the 50 books a year challenge: Give 1-2 weeks maximum to my current read by reading everyday for 20-30 minutes Focus on your hydration: Minimum 6glasses to up to 8 glasses. More water! LASTLY NEVER GIVE UP! Speaking of giving up, we all need some kind of push on our behinds, right? That's why I have certain ideals. Certain role models that I look for inspiration and motivation when I am feeling particular down in the ditch. These forces of good are there when i need them the most, to guide me through my epic quest I call life. Someone who I want to be: Inspiration Dice I have so many role models that I look up to! People who have proved to be gigantic and so bad arse--who don't need to be reminded of their worth! People who are amazing enough to inspire and motivate us all to follow our dreams and challenge our limits. They teach us that being kind, resolute, strong and brave--in the face of danger--is the most noblest of things you can do. So, so talented, so powerful and so stupendous. I want to be them and I am honoured to call them my idols: Lara Croft, Black Widow, Korra, Ellie Goulding, Aveline De Grandpre, Aloy, Merida, Captain Marvel, Avatar Aang, Dr 13 and Yasmin Khan, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Jim Kwik, Shuri, Okoye, Kamala Khan etc. I am not promising here but i will try to keep you guys up to date with my daily shenanigans and what-nots. Apart from that, I want to THANK you for YOUR precious time! And I might need you guys to help me with this challenge because my focus on them has been very rocky but I am ready to CHANGE MYSELF FOR THE BETTER! I SWEAR ON MY PRETTY LITTLE HANDS THAT I SHALL TRY MY HARDEST! *CUE RICK ROLL SONG* p.s: i love DND even though i am a complete beginner so talk to me about it or if you are looking dnd players then lets band together! I am all for an epic dnd session!
Hi rebels. Been a tall and ( still) skinny guy my favourite weapon has always been kicks. I had one of my sparring session filmed few months ago. My friend with the camera kept on screaming " high kicks, Sam! Kick him high! You so tall! " ( clean version of the actual comments :-) ) So I decide to focus on flexibility and legs training. I have this crazy schedule for this quest. Monday: Flexibility training (HFS)Tuesday:Morining Bare Foot Running (BFR) and HFSEvening: Body Weight Brigade (BWB)Wednesday:Morning HFSEvening: KickboxingThursday : HFS and BWBFriday:Morning: BFREvening: KickboxingSaturday: HFS OR KickboxingSunday:Morning: BFREvening HFS BWBYeah it's a bit busy schedule. But I want to aim high ( my every means). I bought this "Hips flexibility system" since it was at a discounted price, it is designed for martial arts and Kishi already tried it with good resoults. It's a 10 weeks program so It will be part of my next challenge too. I'm starting with a bit of handicap: my pinkie is not 100%: I fear I had dislocated and occasionally hurts like hell. I had to heve it chacked but life is so crazy I hadn't the time. I have torn my right arm deltoid: nothing serius. It just stings a bit but since I will focus on legs it should be no problem. Last I have been sick yesterday. I crawl form the sofa to the bed with stomach upside down all day. Now I'm fine but not 100%. My fitness goals are: Been consistent with this training programBeen consistent with previous goals ( drinking 1lt off meals and eating 2500 healthy cal a day)Perform 4 high kicks (1,85 mt / 5,6 ft) in sequence and good formPerform 5 pull ups in a row with good formTo this I want to add a couple for Life goals: Meditation: I failed on this in my previous challenge but I'm gonna try harder this timeBeen consistent in blogging and ask for some designer tips to some friends ( your suggestions are really welcome). Buy the first class domain.Do something awesome for my family once a week: they deserve it.Sell stuff I do not need and engulf my garage. This include cradle, scooter, old bike. The only thing I can't really let go is my air-soft sniper kit. It's so bad ass and I will get very little money :-( I will add points per goal later. Good luck monks and rebels!
Yeah, I'm going a bit goofy with this challenge's theme. But I got a hashtaggin' partner in crime, klaymates and we are here to rock the next 6 weeks! I'm pretty much following up with my last challenge's goals, but with a little more planning with the extra food consumption and sleeping... #mainquest: #strengthgains #riseandgrind! Wake up at 7am every day (weekends are exceptional)Get enough sleepAbsolutely no skipping morning classes#nomnomnomnomnomnomnom Eat 90% primal (exception with rice and oats)Add to grocery budget, cook more foodWhat I'm thinking: Cook a load of rice, meat and vegetables for each week and just eat that (For treats, thinking banana bread, avo pudding, anything that I can enjoy, get my calorie intake up enough, easily pack for school and not feel too guilty about.) Suggestions are welcome!No more lattes, coffee only 2x/weekNo more crappy cakes/sweets/desserts unless made homemade with no sugar#isitworthit?lemmeworkit! Lift 3x/week (alternating days between squats/BP/DBrows and squats/OHP/deadlift)Over holidays: attend Muay Thai 1-2x/week#lifedecisions Continue improving GPAGet 80%+ on all 3 final exams#prechallengerewire Mini-quest: Got a bet going on with a friend who thinks I can't go 2 weeks without my daily coffee. November 3rd - 16th, no caffeine, only drinking water and milkI'm currently on day 3, after doing a necessary all-nighter on finishing 2 lab reports... aaand I'm doing pretty well. So I got this. Having a tolerance break might do me some good anyhow. I'll update on whether I complete this or not by the time we actually start this challenge.
Hi Everyone, Very late to the challenge, but Iâ€™m still want to participate. I'm training Kickboxing / Muay Thai for a year and a half. I have a nerd /geek / family man lifestyle with a lot of hrs a day spent in front of a computer screen. I would define myself skinny: 6.2 ft X 158 lbs. So I would like to build up a bit. I hit the gym twice a week and do some push-ups / sit-downs at home. Since yesterday I started a slightly modified "beginner bodyweight workout": Sammy's bodyweight workout warm-up: 3X3 min skipping rope 20 body weight squats20 push ups20 walking lunges10 dumbbell rows 60 second plank60 jab / cross with 1 kg in each hand four repetitions Main Quest Get stronger and fight better Goals Do the "Sammy's bodyweight workout" at least 3 times a weekEat paleo twice a dayAttend the "Saturday sparring" session at least twice Side quest Drink half a gallon of water outside regular mealsUpdate my â€œkickboxingâ€ blog weekly Motivation: I want to compete in a inter club tournament and I want to perform well. I want to be proud of my self. Reward: If I accomplish all these goals I'm gonna buy myself a new pair of gloves / shorts to show the world my awesomeness. Maybe I have been a bit too concise. If you think I should add more details please do tell. UPDATE These are my point reward: Workout: STR +5Eat paleo : CON +2Saturday sparring: DEX +3Drink water: WIL +1Ride direboar: CON +2Blogging: CHA +2
