  1. Hey Nerds! My name is Skullz B Kraken and I'm a crazy cat lady who loves pirates, cheese, Morrowind, Stardew Valley, and all things Halloween. I stumbled across NF last week by googling "Workouts for people who have no idea how to work out." I was the goth kid in high school who hated gym class and the college kid who went to murder mysteries put on by the campus librarian, rather than partying at the frat house. As a kid and all the way into my mid-twenties, I was tiny... size 0, turn sideways and disappear kind of tiny, all without trying. That being said, when it all went down-h
  2. Hey all, I'm new to the community; I'm in my early 30's at the moment. I work as a software engineer during the day but I also develop my own personal projects. Recently I've been working outside doing projects around the house and the yard. I've also been seeing a nutritionist who has been helping me with sticking to a better food lifestyle. The last time I remember being in the average weight range was when I was 12... Ever since then I've always been obese. The reason why I'm here is because I over think everything. I think being part of a community that understands where I'm coming from wi
  3. Awkward Introduction So, I've just joined up and making the dreaded "1st post" in the forum. Here goes... My usual nom de guerre is livewithzeal or Zealina, but most of my friends just call me Z. I'm hailing from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, but I was born in Wyoming. An average day has me working at a desk all day (Web/app dev and SharePoint admin) and getting my gaming on at night. I'm totally a super geek with way too many fandoms and interests, but here's a few... Tolkien's works Star Trek (all, but my fav is TNG) Star Wars (Han sh

  5. So I recently agreed to take part in a 5k run as part of a fund raiser in July/August - the final date isn't set. I'm basically a non runner but wouldn't consider myself a couch potato. I work in a kitchen 10+ hours a day and can comfortable walk in excess of 20 miles without much issue. As such I've picked up the NHS Couch to 5k App and started on week two. I've done my first two runs without too much issue. Its a challenge but I'm recovering pretty fast. Obviously I have a deadline now and I was wondering if it would be sensible to try to speed through doing a run every other day cutting it
  6. Hey everyone! So I stumbled across Nerd Fitness while doing a bit of research on weight loss. I've been trying to lose weight for years... But let me back up a bit. I'm Deana, and I'm 27 years old. I'm currently in college, pursuing my degree in Medical Laboratory Science. I'll be done with school in June (Can't. Wait.), and then hopefully I'll be well on my way to establishing my career as a lab rat. My hobbies include video games (especially horror-themed ones... and zombies), binge-watching shows, writing, exploring, and basically anything that I may find interestin
  7. Hi guys! So I will be doing my first 4 week challenge during this course. I fell like I still have a lot to learn and I am so eager to get started. I love the idea of this challenge because I get to get to focus on bettering myself one small step at a time and I am all about people pushing themselves to be the best version of themselves that they can be. So I have decided to start with two main quests, out of which I will choose three small challenges in one and one small challenge from the other that kind of overlaps the two main quests in the end. I am starting
  8. I am Arcelas! I used to spam /yell this in WoW after every kill or successful herb gather. Now I plan to yell it while cars and guys in wheelchairs go whizzing by as I go for my daily walks. When the Taco Bell beckons like a dude outside a nudie bar in Vegas, I will resist the temptation. So welcome to the Starting Zone of my journey to get to level 60. (There is no level 110 lol) Main Quest: Lose 50lbs! 12/10/17 Starting weight 293 lbs Go from drinking a 2 liter every other day to only drinking one 12oz soda on Thursday wi
  9. Hey rebels! I'm new around here and I'm trying to get/stay in shape. I'm a picky eater so I need some one to keep me accountable with food (trying new ones and eating the good stuff). I think I'll probably fall into the Ranger category eventually because I dislike monotony, but who knows! Maybe I'll find something I love on this journey! It's unlikely I'll find someone near me (Davenport, IA). But even someone to keep tabs on me online would be nice.
  10. I typically tend to be more of a stalker uh, I think the appropriate term is lurker. But I read somewhere that is discouraged here . . . . so be warned, I'm rusty on social cues. I found this through a MFP chat. I'm already following a fitness routine, but this seems neato, so I'm checkin it out. I'm fortunate that my mom always raised me to strive to feel comfortable with myself and never really emphasized being pretty (plus being an only girl of 4) led to me not really paying much attention to my body until my Doc told me too. So here's me: clinically obese (though I still
  11. Hello everyone, So, I'll be honest, exercising and I have a complicated relationship. I chose the monk class as homage to the several years I spent learning Shaolin Kung Fu. I loved it. I was closer to God, sharper mentally, and I felt good even though I was still 340 lbs. Due to scheduling conflicts, I'm not able to attend the classes at the center until I'm done with school and have my career established so I can ditch my night job. Anyway, while learning Kung Fu, I was presented with real issues. The biggest one was my flexibility. So I'm looking for some stretching
  12. Hello fellow rebels! I'm a bit new around here, been lurking for a little bit, and wanted to go ahead and make a place for my first 4 week Challenge. I recently had a bit of a wake-up call in my life, and am ready to lose weight and get fit. I want to get There (healthy), and never come back to the way I have been living my life. I have always been kinda overweight, but I am currently the heaviest I've ever been (well within obese) and I'm ready to change. I've made some half-assed attempts at weight loss in the past, but I intend to stick with this. This is for the rest of my life, not just t
  13. Hi there, I'm Salmah, from Australia. I have a love-hate relationship with exercise, diets, reaching my fitness goals, etc lol. Just joined this forum so that I'm not alone on this journey with all my issues Cheers
  14. Started my nerd fitness stuff 2 days ago. I'm happy with how I'm going so far on my 3rd day in. I'm going to start posting stuff on here to make myself accountable and stick to my goals. I want to full nerd this so please let me know any tips you think might help a beginner. I'm making a spreadsheet to track daily exercise and meals. I would love to get some cooking tips to get healthier. What are some of your favourite recipes that are quick and easy to cook to help keep healthy.
  15. Hello everyone, Yuki here. Down in Baltimore,MD just looking to get back to where i once was in weight.
  16. Hi, I'm a dude looking for like-minded individuals. I like nerdy stuff like video games, movies, comic books, dungeons and dragons, and martial arts. I'm 5'10" and I'm 250 lbs and I'm looking to lose bunch of weight and eventually be around 180ish. I live in Southern California. I am a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I've also done Muay Thai for about five years. I'm not huge on weightlifting, but I want to lift weights more to get toned up and also to improve my performance in Jiu-Jitsu. So yeah, Hi!
  17. Today, you are perfect! Today, you are perfect! Today, you are perfect! Today, you are perfect! I repeat to myself as I blankly stare into the long avoided mirror. So here we go: Today, you are perfect! This is my mantra. It isn't so much of a mantra as of yet.. I guess. More of a begrudging. (Depressed much? YES!) So this leads me to stumbling here: NF. (looks around... woah.. haven't contributed to a forum since [pause] 2007.. O.O Plenty of Reddit stalking) Anywho. My QUESTS are as follows: Crossfit for 1 hour on T/Th/Sa
  18. Hello Everyone, I'm new here and I'm working on getting back into my fitness routine. I used to workout regularly doing martial arts and power lifting but the past 2 years I got a new job with longer hours, and my wife got pregnant and needed my help as much as possible. Now I'm becoming unsatisfied with the shape I'm in and so I'm going to do something about it. This time I want to work up gradually to a more sustainable fitness routine since in the past I've gone hammer and tongs from the start and crashed out after a couple of months. To work towards that my challeng
  19. I need a simple challenge to prove to myself that I can do this. I did really well the first month on NF but then went way too overzealous and it didn't work out. Plus, life has kinda punched me in the face and threw me for a loop. BUT I want to continue striving towards my ultimate goals. Get a flat stomach, strong arms, achieve the splits, read a lot, and Platinum more games. - Rogue Strength - Goal: Complete 5,10,15 routine as found on Pinterest MWF. Stretch, yoga, or dance on off days. - Kitty Pride - Goal: Complete the challenge. Encourage myself and fo
  20. This is RIDICULOUSLY late in the challenge. However, I needed to post it here so that I can start it and continue for when the next challenge starts. I have to start now or else I just won't do it. These are goals and attributes I want to enhance or gain. - Rogue Strength - Goal: Complete 5,10,15 routine as found on Pinterest. - Kitty Pride - Goal: Complete the challenge. Even if it's just till the 31st. - Dark Phoenix Empowerment - Goal: Audition, email, or read about career M-F. - Jubilee Gamer - Goal: Continue towards P
  21. Diet Drink tea when I first wake up instead of soda. Drink more water during the day. -Note: My average drinks consist of only Dr. Pepper and maybe one to two small glasses of water each day. Fitness Complete the NerdFitness Bodyweight Workout at least 1x per week. Level Up Your Life Write 1000 words a day at least 3x each week. Smoke at most seven cigarettes a day instead of nine. Epic Quest One day I wish to become a Personal Trainer and/or a Fitness Instructor at a Gym. It is my heart's desire to help people bett
  22. So I've been working on me every single day. Decided to upgrade my training to a ninja gym- Gripz Gym. It's a new gym opened only for about 1.5 months. I think I broke myself but leveled up my skills: Accuracy 1+ Coordination 1+ Balance 1+ Strength 3+ Power 2+ Dexterity 1+ Here's what it looked like: I highly recommend going to a ninja gym in your area if you're training for ANW but haven't started a backyard course. The rigs were well placed and designed to push you past what's on TV. It's a great starting point. Now I'm
  23. Hi all! I'm 37, currently living in Chicago and determined to lose some weight. I was quite fit in my 20s but multiple health issues in my 30s have taken their toll. I have osteoarthritis in my feet, knees and spine (which I can deal with) and a herniated disc/compressed sciatic nerve that has knocked me on my ass. I've had two surgeries to repair the disc since 2014, and now it looks like I'm going to need a third in the future. The doc who did the last surgery says all he can do is a fusion. Second opinion is vehemently opposed to a fusion since my images show I'm predisposed to
  24. So, I completely failed a couple months ago. Ha! Therefore, a respawn is in order and I'm going back to my roots. I made my past challenges way too difficult and I ended up getting upset, overwhelmed, and just stopped everything. YouTube Binging was my poison. Still is! I'm going to make this challenge easy, measurable, and feel great about it! Haha. PLUS! If you haven't seen RWBY, I highly recommend it! Watch it here RooterTeeth.com. It's in his 4th season which just began a couple days ago. Yay!! RWBY HYPE. Team RWBY and Team JNPR Training Ruby Rose: Trophy
  25. Hey Y'all I'm Ben (and yes I am a wizard obvz) I'm from Florida and I'm brand new to this thing. Can't wait to join you guys on this nerdfit. Some things about me: I used to play soccer, do gymnastics, basketball, karate, and swim but somehow got out of all that exercise.I'm wanting to get back into such stuff and maybe learn to love oter physical activities. My non athletic activities are reading, writing, playing instruments, and cooking (although I can't say I right now am cooking healthy). I hope to see y'all in the forums
