  1. Second challenge in four years. Last challenge, I did fairly well, but stopped posting here. So that needs to stay consistent throughout the challenge this time. I lost the ability to run about four years ago (hence my break) and I has taken this long to be okay with it and look for another activity that brings me joy and health. I'm hoping it will be swimming and easy hiking. ATM I am quite de-conditioned so it will take some time for the hiking, but I want to find a swimming hole this summer and go more than twice! My mental health has been reaching a new level of good. I can do more with my day and I rebound from stress easier if not too much faster. So I'm working on reacquainting myself with Time. What do I truly need for downtime to re-energize and start another action IRL? It's an ongoing question and will take some hardcore patience on my part. GOALS Self Care – Spa Days -- facials, foot care, nails, teeth, muscle massages, acupressure, moisturize parts/dry parts, and make cucumber, tomato, and butterhead lettuce sandwiches. (Partial habit already) Read Daily – relax! Getting to know the flow of time. (Need new habit) Exercise – Walk -- everyday, increase distance each week. (Already a habit) Counter push ups -- some each day (Need new habit) Core and Lower Back exercises -- some each day (Need new habit) Environs – Unclutter -- Everything needs a place in my home. Desk first week, drawing table next week, kitchen third week, and bathroom last week. (Need new habit) Week Zero, here we go! Cheers Trail head to Camel's Hump. My favorite mountain. Camel's Hump. Nuf said. Lake Elmore. One of my favorite swimming places.
  2. “Read to beam up,” the transporter engineer said. “Engage,” Lieutenant Commander Geordi LaForge ordered The transponter engaged and Command Kronos stood on the platform. His red Starfleet uniform was immaculate. Even the rank pips seemed polished. Kronos stepped off the platform and he greeted the Lieutenant. “I’m Lieutenant Commander LaForge, head of Engineeering on the Enterprise,” LaForge said and gestured to his right. “This is Lieutenant Commander Data, he’ll be giving you a tour of the ship, before taking you to the bridge.” “Thank you,” Kronos said, giving the man a nod. He turned towards the Android. “I’m looking forward to getting started.” The android looked at him. “Thank you Commander, if you would please follow me.” Kronos thanked LaForge and followed the android around the ship. For an android, Data was rather articulate. He seemed almost human. It was quite endearing. Kronos used the tour to try to get a rein in on his emotions. He was excited. Kronos had heard of the crew of the Enterprise, and he was honored to have been sent to the ship to learn from such a talented crew. “And this is Sick Bay,” Data stopped, allowing Commander Kronos to enter first. A few nurses attended to their duties. “This way, please, Commander.” The android gestured to a side office in which a woman sat. She stood as the two entered. “Dr. Crusher, this is Commander Kronos. He is hear to observe and learn. Commander - this is Dr. Crusher, the Enterprise’s Chief Medical Officer.” Kronos shook hands with the Doctor. “I’m looking forward to working with you Dr. Crusher,” Kronos said, pulling out a datatape. “My medical records are here. I figured I’d save you the trouble of procuring them yourself.” “Thank you,” she said. “I look forward to working with you as well.” The pair left and went finally to the lift. Data ordered the lift to take them to the bridge. Kronos could feel the anxiety building up as the doors opened. Several crew members worked at their stations. Two men and a woman sat in the center of the bridge. They stood and turned towards the lift as Data left and resumed his own work at his station. “Permission to come aboard the bridge, Captain,” Kronos said, his heart fluttering. “Permission granted,” came the reply from Captain. Kronos entered the bridge and the trio met him. A bald man, the Captain, greeted him. “I’m Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Welcome aboard the Enterprise Commander Kronos. We are very excited to be able to work with you.” “Thank you, Captain,” Kronos said, taking the man’s outstretched hand. “The pleasure is all mine.” Captain Picard gestured to the man at his right, who, like Kronos, wore read and had three rank pips on his collar. “This is my First Officer, Commander William Riker.” The two men greeted each other and the Captain gestured to the woman on his left. “And this is our Counselor, Deanna Troi.” The woman leaned in as Kronos shook her hand. “Relax,” she said, sensing his anxiety. “My security officer, Lieutenant Worf, and I believe you have already met Mr. Data.” the Captain finished introductions. “Please take a seat,” Commander Riker said, gesturing towards his own chair. “I couldn’t,” Kronos said. “I’m just here to observe and learn.” Commander Riker gave him an encouraging smile. “What better way to learn.” Kronos looked at the Captain who smiled and said, “Don’t make me order you to take your seat Commander.” “Aye, sir,” Kronos said taking the seat to the Captain’s right. “Alright Commander, let’s set our heading,” Captain Picard said. “Aye, sir. Mr. Data - set course bearing 151-mark-3 Warp factor three.” Kronos ordered. “Course laid in,” Data said, typing at his pad. “We are ready for warp sir.” Kronos took a deep breath. “Engage.” In this challenge, different members of the Enterprise crew will be giving Commander Kronos advice on how to become a better Starfleet officer. Each officer has also given the Commander a sub-quest and although it is not necessary, it will help the Commander achieve his goals Counselor Troi's Challenge As ship's counselor - Deanna Troi's responsibilities are to make sure the crew is emotionally stable to do their duties with the best judgment. As such, her challenge to Commander Kronos is to continue making progress on fighting depression and anxiety through religious study and prayer. He should also make sure to not isolate himself in an unhealthy way. Sub Quest: Start the day out with mindful meditation/prayer Dr. Crusher's Challenge As the ship's Chief Medical Officer, it is Dr. Crusher's responsibility to make sure the crew is physically fit to perform their duties. Her challenge to the Commander is eating based. She would urge the Commander to not skip meals and to eat more vegetables. He should be also active at least three times a week. Sub Quest: Try a new food once a week Commander Riker's Challenge Commander Riker's responsibilities are to assist the Captain, but the Commander also knows how to have a good time and is a good trombone player. His challenge to Command Kronos is to practice his banjo five days a week for a half an hour each time. Sub Quest: Listen to some new music or share music with others Captain Picard's Challenge The Captain is in charge of all day to day activities on the Enterprise. This requires a great deal of organization. This challenge will be difficult, but with some organization should be possible. Captain Picard's challenge is for Kronos to log his food, activity and practicing. Journaling would be great as well. Setting up a calendar would help a great deal for planning purposes. Sub Quest: Read Level Up Your Life
  3. Hey guys! I'm Linsanity and this is my fourth challenge! Up until now, I've been training with the adventurers. This time though since I've established some good exercise habits and discovered that I enjoy both running and strength training, I figured I'd join y'all! My main goal is to lose poundage! I've lost 15ish since I first joined NF, but I've still got a ways to go. I want to get down to the 140-145 range soo I've got another 25ish lbs to shred! SUB-GOALS Goal #1: EXERCISE 5 days per weekCombo of running and strength training each dayI plan to run a 5k twice a week and do 4 quarter mile sprints on the other days before strength training. I haven't quite nailed down the strength training routine but it will likely involve some combo of squats, pushups, and burpees. Fortunately, I have no morning classes this semester so I'll be spending my mornings at the gym! Goal #2: EAT Whole30 every meal every day for the first 30 days [at least]Create food photo collage each weekRead whole30 success stories 4 days during the weekThis will be difficult for me, not gonna lie! I have eaten Paleoish during some of the past challenges, and really enjoyed it, but I cheated a lot on the weekends. Over the holidays I didn't participate in the NF challenge and ate SUPER poorly! Cookies on cookies on cookies! I noticed over Christmas that all the sugar I was consuming severely dampened my mood and made me feel more depressed than usual during pms. I also gained back 1.5 inches that I had lost back in October. YIKES!! Tuesday I go back to my apartment at school where I'll be buying and making all my own food. So, as long as I don't buy anything bad, I won't be eating anything bad. To keep me from buying non-whole30 foods I plan to take pictures of everything I eat and post a collage of the meals each weekend. I enjoy taking pictures and fooling around in photoshop so this will be fun! I also plan to read at least one whole30 success story four days a week to keep me motivated. Seeing how far people have come really inspires me, and will help me hold strong when times get tough! I have really strong drive and determination so I know I can achieve this goal. It's gonna take dedication and confidence, but it is possible and it is doable! Goal #3: COMMUNICATE Check-in on NF 5 days + a weekChecking-in means either posting on my challenge or posting on others challenges 5 days + per week. Last challenge I hardly checked in at all, which actually made it more difficult for me to keep up with my goals. Reading encouraging words and reading about others' breakthroughs is super inspiring and motivates me to keep pushing for my own fitness goals! Side Quest: DRAW Aim for 1-2 hours of sketching per weekI enjoy drawing, but have gotten out of the habit. I want to be more productive with my time and improve my skills. Also, I feel that drawing might be good stress reliever. After the first week or two I'll decide whether to make the goal one hour or two. I want to make this goal very easy to achieve so I can start to get a habit in place. I plan to figure out stat points and post starting measurements later in the week. I will take progress measurements after the first 30 days and at the end of the challenge. PS: Soo tomorrow I'm going skiing which I am SUPER excited about!!!! BUT I don't know what food options will be available or if they will be whole30 approved. I plan to do the best I can; but dairy might happen if cheese is on the salads. Tomorrow i'm prepared to give myself some leeway though! Best of luck everyone!
  4. Hello fellow members of the Rebellion... So I'm back at it again. Cycle 1 was a pretty good challenge (and many members of the Rebellion helped that happen), and now I'm aiming to dig deeper. The theme for this challenge is "BURN ". Why "Burn"? Well I consider myself a phoenix - a mythical creature who burns itself up and rises re-born from the ashes while flying into the sun...; yada yada yada.. No really. In more ways than one in my lifetime I've been re-born and have come to see/experience life in a new way. So I've come to see myself as a phoenix. In spite of things that I experienced that could have burned me out completely, I still rose and am flying higher than ever before. God is great! So... Like a farmer uses hot iron to burn his mark on his cattle (branding), I'm also working to use this challenge to brand myself with these new habits of leveling up in life - eating paleo, working out regularly; and burning off residual fat in areas where I've procrastinated for far too long. So here are the goals. 1. Work out at the gym 3x a week. +2 STR +1 DEX - No big deal here. Last challenge I had what now seems like 2 goals in one with both a body weight workout and, so I'm splitting it to be more effective. 2. Eat paleo +4 CON +1WIS - Continuing from the previous challenge with weekly cook-ups and visits to the farmer's market. 3. Modified Angry Birds workout 2x a week +2 STR - Also continuing from the previous challenge. (I want to get to level 2 in all the movements. Right now I'm at Level 5 for squats, Level 2 for incline push ups, Level 4 for arm rows, Level 1 for planks, and Level 5 for lunges.) 4. Study for and take the LEED AP exam +4 WIS +1 CHA - I've put off this test for about 3 years.Now it's time to do it. End of story. The plan for accomplishment is sleep really early (8:30pm), and wake up really early (4:00am) to study until it's time to get ready for work. I've done this before for a previous test I took in October - which I took one month to study for. This exam is longer, so I think the time period is all right. So there it is. I'm building up from the previous challenge. I hope to someday look back and really marvel at all I've accomplished. Here's to another great challenge!
  5. I was hesitant to sign up the 6 week challenge because I am so new to this site. My goals are going to be VERY SIMPLE because I have a tendency to overwhelm myself. 1. Switch from coffee with creamer to plain tea. +2 STA, +3 CON 2. Stop picking at my skin. +2 CHA, +1 WIS, +2 CON 3. Get to bed by midnight. +2 CON, + 3 STA Every week I adhere to a goal, I earn 20% of the respective points for that goal. The overall outcome should be increased resilience by learning better coping skills while ditching bad habits.
