  1. I was wondering what to title my challenge and I decided I'm doing the same challenge I've done for quite a while, so I'll just slap a theme over the inital post. I doubt I'll stick with it much past zero week, but here we are. For those unfamiliar, Pucca is a Series from South Korea. Seasons 1-2 are available on Tubi, a free streaming service (with ads, but they are tolerable) and season 3 is on netflix. Season 1-2 Intro: Season 3 End Credits: There are apparently not a lot of Gifs easy to find. Goals: Eating and Cooking
  2. Guess who's back?! (No, not Slim Shady....) It's been at least 6 months since I last took part in a proper challenge (holy crap, it's been so long!). I realize this one is coming a few days late, but I've had all kinds of shit going down lately and I'm slowly catching up. There's a lot to fill you all in on, but I'll do my best to give you as brief of a synopsis as possible before moving forward with my challenge goals. For those who don't know or remember me - HI! I'm your friendly neighbourhood Ranger-Cyborg who has a hankering for adventure, crafting
  3. Overview / Motivation: I think the 'aches and pains' thing has been an underlying theme here and there for a while. In this case, I'm not only thinking about the physical aspect but also the mental part as well. I've been keeping up with a pretty consistent regime of working out (and finally incorporating more cardio than I have in the past - trying to balance out my prior 100% lifting approach) with the mental aspect as well - continually learning and exploring new concepts in leadership, motivation and growth. All that said, I'm still feeling physically beat up most days, and
  4. Overview / Motivation: Continuing on the same path from the last challenge since I am still seeing strength gains in my program. I ended up finishing Life as Sport during the off-week - I read through it start to finish and took notes, but didn't dig into any of the exercises. I wanted to run through it again, but actually stop to work through each of the exercises and build out the Life is Sport strategy and mentality. I think it will be very valuable for me. Looking forward to getting after it! Main Quest (revised for 2016): Hit the following benchmarks in strengt
  5. I’ve debated over and over how to start this log, and, to be completely honest, I still don’t know how. Introductions have never been my specialty, but I suppose I could start by telling you a little bit about myself. I started my Nerd Fitness journey in October of 2014. I had just moved into my first apartment with my boyfriend and was ready to get myself on track. Or so I thought. I wasn’t happy with how I looked, my recent-ish weight gain, lack of strength, and incredibly sedentary lifestyle. During a google search, I came across an article of Steve’s - I don’t remember which one
  6. In 2016, I will bench press my bodyweight <period> Last challenge, I got some of my shit together so I can make progress on this. Goal 1, Bench... Use it: I'm gonna run a cycle of 5/3/1 with a bench, or bench assistance exercise every workout. I'll start with the deload week since I haven't lifted in like forever. Goal 2, Breakfast Burritos in the Blue Buick: I spend 45 min driving each way from work. Eating in the car will help me make time for the gym. So this goal is all about batch cooking and meal prep so I can save the time I have outside of work... especially car friendl
  7. While I know New Years Resolutions are, at best, poor goal setting form, and at worst, a self-defeating waste of time, boy I am I ever a sucker for a fresh start. It's totally arbitrary and illogical, but I figure that I might as well harness the excitement, eh? I decided to look back on the last few New Years. Back in 2013, I started the year at 169 lbs. Right before my first NF challenge. Whoa. I've been doing this for 3 years. And while in those three years I have not quite had the revolutionary success that I dreamed of... well, I've started each New Year a little lighter than the previo
  8. Overview / Motivation: 2015 ended pretty flat due to a few reasons that don't really matter now. Now that the challenges are 4 weeks a piece, I feel better about starting slow and refocusing on good habits and consistency. I'm also rethinking my main quest goals since they have been focused on pushing significant weight (for me at least), but is that really what I need? I still want to target a goal for bench and squat, but less than originally planned so I can focus on some better goals. Coming off of 2015 I am definitely packing some extra pounds and stiff as a board, so I think that is
  9. Quest 1: YAYOG four days a week. I have gotten used to doing YAYOG during the last two challenges and I still like this kind of training, so I’m going to keep it as my quest number one. I’ve finished the 10 week basic program of the YAYOG app. However, I had to adapt many of the arm exercises to waay easier in order to able to do them . Therefore I will just repeat the basic program, this time trying to minimize the changes I have to make to the exercises. Quest 2: Yoga on one day a week. I still love yoga, so that will be quest number two once again. Quest 3: no sweets after dinner F
  10. This challenge I want to take a step back from focusing on working out to see what kind of progress I have made. Some of the things I have measured before but others this will be the first time recording stats. I believe this will help me in the long run to A) address some weaknesses and know where I started. So to do this I will be focusing on 4 key areas: 1) Yielding Yoga (+4 DEX +1 STR) I have access to the NerdFitness Yoga program so I will be doing yoga at least 2x per week. I also will complete the flexibility benchmark both at the beginning and end of the challenge. I feel like
