  1. Leaves and sticks crunched under Achaedia's feet as she made her way through the forest. She was sure it was here. The directions she had been given would indicate she should be coming upon the rebellion any time now. After a year-long absence in which she had married the love of her life, purchased a dwelling on the outskirts of Rata Sum, and graduated from University as a Master of Synergetics, she was now ready to return to the fray. Achaedia the Warrior Part II: The Liftening Goal 01. Strengthening Achaedia will research and select a workout program as a mean
  2. Last challenge was my first since last fall, and was partly to help me get over the winter blues. This challenge I’m building on that and adding in music. Goals Fitness- Walk or take my bike to work every rain-free day. It's about a mile and a half, or 5-10 if I have extra time and take a long route for the fun of it. (+1 per day, +2 per longer ride) Run 3 or 4 C210k workouts a week. Running isn't my favorite, but it's convenient and I like being able to run. I’m on week 7 now. Also, I’m signed up for a half marathon in November. (+2 per 30 minutes) 10+ minutes of
  3. First challenge time! Yay! Can you feel the antici...pation? My Overall Goals: Lose at least 16kg to get back to my weight before I landed in the hospital Keep my platelets at a safe level consistently (between 80,000-150,000 per liter of blood) Get a job performing at Universal Studios Japan Look fantastic for upcoming weddings, including my own! An explanation behind these goals, for anyone who didn't see my forum introduction: I have Hashimoto's hypothyroid and polycystic ovaries, diagnosed as a teenager for both, and despite having a healthy d
  4. I had so much fun with the Rebels during my respawn challenge - and my life is still weird enough - that I think I'll hang around here a little longer! Thinking about my last challenge, I was reminded more than anything of one of the big themes of the lovely Undertale - "Determination". If you haven't played the game, it's more than just gritting your teeth and carrying on; it's a force that lets the characters come back from the brink of death, and even rewrite their own stories and those of the other characters in their world. For those who weren't followi
  5. With my senior recital and graduation rapidly approaching (my recital hearing, which is more important than the recital itself, is in 5 days), I don't have a lot of time or energy to devote to a proper assassin's challenge, so I'm taking up some desk work for a while. /failed attempt at sort of themeing Goals: > 10h practice clarinet per week outside of rehearsal and lesson (%) > keep evening checklists of things to do before bed and do them. I must Tame my Monkey! (No more than one thing left undone every night) (P/F daily) > do something for bio outside o
  6. I'm back. So, the last five months or so weren't pretty. Long story short, got a year-long internship that I thought would be great and turned out to be hellish, had a bout with several months of serious depression/anxiety (a new and not-at-all fun experience for me), turned into a hermit, watched my health and fitness crash and burn. Great times. But, slowly, I've been recovering, thanks in part to the support of some good friends (h/t to @Treva and co.), and this month I've been on the upswing. Still, I really need to repair the damage that was done by th
  7. As I woke up from the strange dream I had, I remember looking up and see the Mentor looking at me. "A good rest I hope?" he asked. He always smiled, and I was terrified of that. I always the idea that he was constantly scheming, aware and patient. Even when he scolded me he did it so calmly that I felt he had both the knowledge and the skills to kill me in a way that I would only know when I laid to rest that day. "I'm sorry Master, I should've been aware", I responded getting up. To this day I remember his words, no matter how many years pass by. He said "It is okay because I had not planned
  8. Hello to everyone, i'm always searching for new workout music, so i thought that this might be a good place to share & discover new music! So, this is the idea : those who will partecipate to this topic will share a song / instrumental and will rate the song above your post! No discrimination here, you can share any kind of music / genres Let's start!

    about me lover of cookies, bikes, music, llw, and lounging. liker of many other things. This is me cramping my way through the Santa Monica mountains at the inaugural Malibu Gran Cookie Dough/Phil's Fondo. Would be nice to do more epic rides like this without my legs trying to kill me. about this challenge Focusing on 3 things. Doing more of what I love, improving my physical health, and improving the living part of life. Freewheel Burning Double my mileage and climbing from last year 2015 completed: 797mi + 5180ft climbed 2016 com
  10. After a roller coaster half a year life is finally settling into something resembling a routine! I've got a real job, my own place, and am learning how to be an adult all on my own. It feels a little like going off to college right after high school, everything is kind of exciting and scary and sometimes I have trouble focusing on the things I should. So, I'll be taking baby steps as I return to challenges. Main Priority: Get my work schedule under control over the course of this challenge. My work is largely self-directed, and while I've taken measures to keep myself on task, I st
  11. Good Afternoon Rebels! I need some suggestions for Music for a play list. I just downloaded the App “Zombie Run” so that I can have another thing to motivate me run, hike, etc. It is also a little themely with Halloween right around the corner. Music I am looking for is some Zombie Apocalypse butt kicking music. Let me know what you got?
  12. Last challenge I concentrated on starting to lift, stretch and log my walking/swimming/biking miles and was moderately successful. This challenge I'm sticking with the lifting as I want to focus on some consistent goals between now and the end of the year (plus the lifting is just starting to get noticeably harder), I've joined a yoga class so will build on the foundation that is giving me (1 class per week) to try and stretch more everyday. I'm still logging my miles for my walk to Mordor, too, but I'm also adding in that I'm going to learn to play Bass guitar properly
  13. Which song reminds you of your chosen path, and gets you psyched to be completing quests? I myself follow an assassin/warrior mix, so I have two! For the assassin side: And for the warrior side:
  14. Time for my second challenge already! Very happy with how the first one went. First draft for this challenge (may change/refine during the week): Fitness - Walking - On non-exercising days I have to go for a walk, especially on my lazy weekend days when i avoid leaving the house Food - Meal prep - Cook batch food every weekend, enough to cover breakfast and lunch (one meal = minimum success) for the working week Fun - Violin - Must practice 10 min twice a week (Bonus reward = 3x week) Life - Book reading before bed 10 min (aim every night, 5x week minimum)
  15. 'Cause I'm back... In the true spirit of nine lives, I am getting my shit together over here. There is a true link between how often and involved I am over here on the boards and my quest for improved strength and mobility, so... my gift to myself (and you, lets admit) is this music-filled challenge thread. If nothing else, the playing of awesome music every morning as I post to my thread keeps me signing on (and dancing at my desk most of the morning). Goals will be simple. 1. Dance to a great song every morning, post it here daily for
  16. Yes, I'm doing another twenty one pilots themed challenge. I am still off in faraway lands doing cool things with lasers, and I'm still homesick and anxious and sad, and these awesome dudes are still helping me stay sane. And it just so happens that this beautiful song (one of the first songs of theirs that I fell in love with) has a few lines that relate directly to my goals for the challenge! PERF~ PRIMARY GOALS ~ i'm taking over my body ~ I am so done with dorm food, oh my lordy lord. There are so many delicious things and ALL OF THEM ARE BAD FOR M
  17. 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
  18. After sleeping off the last one, it's time to get back to work. I will once again be at sea for the vast majority of the challenge, and certain dreaded pastimes simply cannot be avoided any more. I didn't do much running last time – successfully avoiding the treadmill entirely. As enjoyable as that may have been, I don't want to give my body any ideas. So to remind him who's his daddy, I've come up with this... Run 60 miles minimum, preferably not all at once. Use the treadmill, dammit! If I can do more, all the better. And yes, there will still be mountains. Push, Pu
  19. Well, last week was kind of crazy, which is why I didn't start my challenge early. I basically had no nights off, and attended my cousins wedding on Friday. I ate more than I should have because they had extrordinarily good food, but I partly made up for it with the dancing, plus I'd been so stressed all week I was barely eating enough. But now I need to get back to eating right. My big, long overview: Exercise: So far this year, my exercise goal has been to attend two exercise classes per week. I've been doing this successfully, and it's now a couple of months since it's been le
  20. Goals: Fitness: I’m very happy with how my fitness goals have been going this year, so I’m only giving them minor tweaks. 1) Keep up the momentum. I’ve been doing 2 kettlebell strength training classes per week since February, and I’ve made a lot of progress. I want to keep doing that. Bonus points for doing an extra workout at home, or a third class. 2) Don’t drive unless it’s raining. I live 1.25 miles from work, or 1.5 miles if I avoid the busy road. That’s a 20-30 minute walk, a 12 minute bike ride, or an 8 minute drive. I want to bike or walk every day that it’s not
  21. RESPAWN!!! Wow, y'all spiffied up while I was gone. Keeping this challenge pretty loose, so hopefully I can actually complete a challenge without falling off the face of the earth again. Quest #1: Getting Strong, Yo (me doing the OHP) Starting Strength 3x per week Reset my Starting Strength program on Friday, so I have baseline work set numbers to start from. Squat: 55lbs OHP: 20lbs Bench: 25lbs Deadlift: 55lbs Starting Measurements: Weight: 140.4lbs Fat %: 28.5 Bust: 36.
  22. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a solid challenge theme, but not having much luck. I even considered just sitting this one out while continuing to work on my overall goal of building strength. However, I find I am more consistent when I have a challenge thread. So here's my five minute write-up: Goal 1 - 4 workouts per week - 2 upper body, 1 lower body, and 1 sandbag-focused Goal 2 - Practice bodyweight skills every day (pistols, handstands, one-arm push-ups) Goal 3 - Play music for 5 minutes a day, either banjo or upright bass
  23. Let´s get real! Welcome to my second challenge, grab yourself a place in the moshpit, unlock your bra´s and get ready to throw them on stage...this is Sex Bob-omb featuring BarbarianBassBro! For those not getting the reference, stop reading, watch "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" and continue reading again. For those to busy or lazy to do so, in short: It´s a comic-based film about a nerdy guy, that plays bass guitar in a rockband called Sex Bob-omb and struggles with success, girls/their ex-bf´s and himself. Perfect description of myself As the story g
  24. Main Quest: Get some balance in my Life After spending one month with the Adventurers, I'm back with the Assassins. However, I've lost control of a lot of things. My house, my schedule, myself. Last month I didn't take care of myself at all and stressed out so much I'm surprised I'm not in a straight jacket. With things picking up faster with my business than I anticipated and an anticipated two month break from future travels, I'm taking this 4-WC to calm down, focus energy on myself, hone my skills, and literally take time to smell the flowers. Finding Balance and Energy In April or May
  25. Bard Brainstorming: Bards are famous for being quite versatile and also for being the life of the party. Things I find unique about Bards: 1.) Music (Instrument) - I feel they are primarily known for being travelling musicians and therefore a pre-requisite should be either knowing or/ currently learning an instrument (singing could also be applicable in my opinion.) Though an instrument (ie. Drums) could definitely be implemented into an exercise routine. 2.) Music (Writing) - Many bards became famous for the unique stories/music they wrote, which set them apart. After all, nobody real
