  1. ...on Asgard Yes it’s another Loki themed challenge. I have so many gifs I didn’t get to use lol. Last challenge I didn’t do so great in some of my goals, and even the one that I smashed, I’m not content to let it stagnate. So much of this challenge will be carried over, with adjustments to my methods. 1. Training grounds Loki isn’t only proficient in daggers. I'm itching to get back to some staff work, but I also haven’t lost a microt of my love for knives, and I’m stoked about my new
  2. Every time I fail a Nerd Fitness challenge, it's because I've forgotten about it in the happy chaos that is my life. So, time to fix that! 😂 Goal #1 - Find a tracking method : I have bought an Arc planner and a hole punch so I make my own sheets. I will be experimenting with various bullet journaling layouts, both for daily/weekly/monthly/yearly tracking, but with a focus on finding an easy habit tracker that will nudge me to remember my daily goals. Goal #2 - Go Doggie Walking! : I have a working car now and the weather is decent, so time to make sure I get Bucket out
  3. So I was roaming the barren, arid cultural wasteland... Wait... Perhaps I'd better introduce myself. Hello. I hope you don't mind me appearing like this in the middle of a challenge and in a different group. I am a former Scout from the UK. I can go away if you like but I hope you won't. I will try and behave myself. So anyway I was roaming the barren, arid cultural wasteland aka Twitter when I encountered an old friend and comrade-in-arms from back in the day, @fearless 2.0, who took pity on my dilapidated state and suggested I return to nerd fitness in search of my l
  4. NEW GOALS (version1.0) I start my new challenge tomorrow, because Ive achieved what I wanted during the last weeks. And I cant wait for the new forums to open. fearless: the "spicy writer" challenge starting 10/14 and ending on November 30th. I will write/research daily. I will participate in NANOWRIMO 2020 as a rebel ( details and numbers of words to follow ) I will go to Cross Fit 2 or 3 times a week ( 1 session of cleaning inclu
  5. Hello nerds! I'm annyshay! Here are my goals for the next 6 weeks... Pass my boards Win NaNoWriMo Go Deeper with Health Coaching There's been a lot of upheaval in my life in the recent past from moving across country to the death of my Grandpa to a lot of traveling, but things are starting to mellow out just in time for... my boards and NaNoWriMo. Hehe. That's right, within the span of this challenge, I will be taking two sets of medical boards and trying to write 50,000 words in one month. So, I want to try to lean on my community here a little bit hard
  6. I'm doing NaNoWriMo... National Novel Writing Month. I decided to do this two days ago so I'm kinda pantsing it. Right now I'm fleshing out an idea I've been tinkering with in my brain for months, maybe years. It's going well. Then 12 am Nov 1 I start writing like mad to produce 50,000 words before 12 am Dec. 1. All those who accomplish that goal.... WIN! This adventure takes place in the Southcoast Cities where a disgraced 'wizard' flees his home country seeking allies to aid in thwarting the imperialistic ambitions of the increasingly corrupt A
  7. ***I stayed at Level 28 because I didn’t complete my #28 challenge. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My Motivation I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I've managed to put on some muscle in an effort to become stronger by weightlifting and I’ve discovered that I love lifting heavy things! I’ve fallen out of what was my normal exercise routine so I’m getting back into becaus
  8. Hey, y'all! Hi. I think (knocks frantically on wood) that we are, for the moment, kind of over it with the destructive weather events and significant life stressors. Post-lightning-strike, post-Florence, post-Michael situation: We have considerable damage to the house, more than we realized at first, but it is livable and fixable and our homeowner's insurance company helped us as much as they could as quickly as possible. With everyone else in the region so devastated, many much more than us, and then Florida needing even more critical help just a few weeks later, I
  9. Druids rock! Last challenge I rediscovered how much I enjoyed Tai Chi, discovered that ending showers cold is awesome, and generally enjoyed doing something different. This go around - Maintain Tai Chi 2 to 4x a week, schedule depending. My job has suddenly added a lot of travel, with vastly more on the horizon. Maintain ending showers cold. It really seems to fire up my day, and I like that. Add - practice Tai Chi (moving meditation and standing meditation) on days where I can't make or don't have class. Add - ice exp
  10. Autumn Adventures Apologies in advance to any friends on the other side of the equator. It's finally starting to feel like autumn around where I'm at and my enthusiasm for this time of year is huge. Autumn is by far my favorite season. The leaves start changing colors and turning the landscape into fiery awesomeness. Some of my favorite produces are in season again (broccoli, apples, various squashes, brussels sprouts, kale). The days start getting crisp and cool - perfect for hiking in the morning and coming home to a nice cup of hot tea. (Hopefully th
  11. Okay for accountability sake, I'm just posting here. To let myself know I will reward myself with writing my challenge out, when I turn in my letter to help get emergency funds. Writing to people gives me anxiety, and this challenge will be about different parts of writing. So accountability to get this letter turned in within the next 24 hours would be appreciated. (Finished much later than I wished, but at least have it done now and will reap the rewards). (Also returned to Adventurers, after I had a realization during one of my hikes. I have a
  12. So, there I was, promising myself that I wouldn't overcommit, wouldn't take on too much at once, wouldn't, y'know, lose my everlovin' mind trying to do everything all the time ... I even sat out last challenge, because I just had TOO MUCH going on. I did manage to *finally* certify as an instructor for the class I most want to be able to teach, so that's cool. And I've taken the first preliminary steps towards starting my own business, which is a vaguely dragonesque thing to do (in the sense of "super-scary but kinda groovy at the same time.") But some of my previous good habits f
  13. I actually did the planning worksheet this time. Who am I, and what have I done with my impulsive hot mess self? Here's the fire plan sketch... Guardian: Increase weight on squat and deadlifts at least weekly. I've had a few "resets" recently to check form. I want a consistent four weeks of increase. Sometimes I tend to wimp out - especially on squatting - because I get scared. If 65# feels so heavy I'm scared to go to depth, I will make excuses and not even try 70#, even if Coach tells me I'm strong enough. Yeah. It feels heavy. So? Pick it up anyways. Big Girl: Diligently
  14. Today I invented a new thing. National Nerd Fitness Month. Unofficial, of course. But I've declared November to be that month so that it coincides perfectly with National Novel Writers Month. If I'm going to be doing NaNoWriMo, then I really NEED some NaNeFiMo at the same time. If I'm going to be BIC-HOK-TAMing all month... (that stands for Butt In Chair - Hands On Keyboard - Typing Away Madly)... then I'm going to need to make sure I eat right while I'm at it, and get enough exercise to boot! I know that November 1 - 30 is not the parameters for this challenge, but it's close
  15. I've been at NF for 20 weeks. I've logged my food every day, levelled from Academy workouts L1 to L2, and I've made very small changes, moved backwards in eating and haven't dared take a progress shot since week 12. In short, it's National Novel Writing Month on Nov 1st, and my only real aim is not to give up on everything 'fitness-related' while I crank out words. KISS: or WMMW, as it turns out... :: Workout 7x a fortnight :: Mindful eating via questioning if I really want this :: Meditate once a week :: Write fiction The aim is to write
  16. This challenge is divided into five categories: Mind, Fuel, Training, Home, and Spark. Each day I'll get a percentage grade in each category, along with a daily percentage and rank. I'll also get a weekly percentage and rank. And of course at the end I'll get my challenge percentage and rank. I use a spreadsheet to track all of this. Mind This category covers mindfulness, and well as scheduling. I want to practice mindfulness with eating, posture, and just in general really. As for scheduling, this covers things like workouts and writing sessions. I do better at these when I s
  17. Friends! On the last episode, I was on Arrakis, undergoing a whole lot of training. Now....I don't have a theme so I'm not sure where we are. Tomorrow I start a new job, and Tuesday is the start of NaNoWriMo. Never one to shy from an overly ambitious idea, I'm planning to do both. Quest 1 (nutrition): Read the NF Nutrition Module. Last month I got through the Mindset module (from my July 15 respawn). Now it's time to put the Nutrition module to bed and get through that. I tried to implement everything in the Mindset module as I went, which doesn'
  18. Welcome to the National Novel Writing Month (or simply, NaNoWriMo) accountabilibuddy group! A little background for the uninitiated. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words during the month of November. It's a fun, challenging, one of a kind experience. It is also a tool for learning to ignore the editor on your shoulder. You know, the one that tells you to go back and rewrite the same sentence a dozen times. It might help to think of what comes out of this month as a pre-first draft, or zero draft. Yes, it will be a mess. But every novel, short story, play, scri
  19. This will be my Sixth Year of NaNoWriMo! And hopefully 4th year of winning NaNoWriMo! (Also. My username is: LovelyMoon on the NaNo site!) This is also the first year I will not only be keeping up NF, but also be starting a new job! Boom! Other words maintaining a full Adult life schedule while adding in 2 whole things within 2 weeks.... And from the signs of last week this will be also managing my depression/anxiety heavily... Main goal for the whole challenge, remind myself I'm awesomely RESILENT by surviving and keeping up with my challenge
  20. tei_

    Tei is back!

    (WHOOPS, posted this in the main Challenge forum instead of the Assassin one. Here it is in the correct place!) Oh hi forum! In the time since I saw you last I moved, started 2 new jobs (one of which is coaching gymnastics!), started using myfitnesspal, joined a climbing gym, and switched from kinda Stronglifts to doing 5/3/1. November is also a ridiculously busy month for me... also, I'm gonna try to do nanowrimo. Seems like a great time to do a Challenge! 1. Food Goal is 6/7 days "winning," aka coming in at or under calories and hitting p
  21. Steven Universe Challenge Steven Universe is about a group of Gemstone based beings who save the world, and notably ALL Gems are female (well technically they are a uni-gendered race that uses female pronouns ). GIRL POWER! The show has a couple of main themes: the power of compassion and the necessity of strong, trusting relationships. I love the show for the amazing characters, beautiful animation, fun and catchy songs, and hilarity ("my mind is the internet, I know every continuity mistake ever made on television"). Awesome characters I wasn't able to fit into this challenge includ
  22. Welcome to the Strength, Nutrition, Adulting, and Creativity to Kickass (SNACK) Challenge! This is my third challenge on Nerd Fitness, and my first with the Assassins. I think that fitness should be functional (fun helps too), and that the best equipment I can use is my body (ignore that it's also the only equipment that I have access to). I recently finished losing the excess weight I was looking to get rid of. Now I want to focus on getting stronger. And hopefully my body fat percentage will go down as a side effect. (I'll post measurements at the start of the challenge.) Main Quest: C
  23. Surakha

    Noor: Reground

    Hello Druids! My name is Noor and I am a halfling assassin who was cursed into the form of a stone giant by fae magic. If you take a look at past challenges, there are many bits and pieces of story there cataloging my quest to regain control of my body and mind from this curse, which is a metaphor for mental illness, hormonal imbalance, and the stresses and struggles of being a fat pansexual genderqueer professional in modern America. I come to the druids because I am seeking balance and centering after months of rapid change and high stress. I am in the process of completing my doctorate
  24. Main Quest To improve my squat and deadlift. Specifically to squat 227x5 and deadlift 247x5. Background After finishing my 99 miler, I feel kind of blah about fitness goals. Understandable, but it has been almost three months now so time to move on to new and exciting fitness goals. My main quest may not seem very scoutly, but runs are much nicer as the legs get stronger. I will work on my upper body too, but that just comes along for the ride and not my main motivation when lifting. So my goals for this challenge are simple. Fitness wise I want to lift, keep up running (both for fi
  25. Thirteen! Challenge Thirteen! It took me twelve challenges but I've finally found The Thing That Works For Me! Rejoice and be merry because it bloody well took long enough and now I can finally stop trying out new nonsense. I got through the last six week challenge doing 23hr fasts every day (barring the last week and a bit, where I'd caught something from someone). I made more progress with weight loss in that challenge than I had the whole year, and to my great surprise it turned out to be pretty easy when I'd moved past the stage where I wanted to feast upon the flesh of my fellow h
