  1. Terah

    Terah - 75 Hard

    How is it that every time I want to jump back on the forums the challenge has almost ended? I just decided to ignore that fact this time and post anyway. Since last time I got back to exercising and eating healthier (nothing extreme). Summer vacation is almost over so it's time to get a good plan and get back to business! I just stumbled across #75hard. And as much as it sounds crazy, it might just be crazy enough to work There are 5 rules: Follow a diet I'm going for the no-s diet Workout twice a day I had started with Cloe Ting's workouts, which I love. So I'll follow one of her programs for the first workout, and do yoga/stretching/mobility work on the rest days. And for the second workout I'll go for a walk [edit] EXCEPT when I'm home alone with the kids and the weather is bad. Drink a gallon of water each day (about 3 liters) I've actually been doing this for the last two months, and it's not that hard, but I do need to pay attention Read 10 pages of non-fiction a day. I have a few books I still need to finish and have ordered a few in the library. I really like this goal actually, I might actually learn stuff Take a progress photo every day This will be the hardest. I hate taking photo's of myself. I'll definitely not be sharing them 😛 I have made an awesome chart in my bullet journal (which I have been using a lot, see I didn't sit on my but the time I wasn't here )
  2. I know. I said I wasn't going to do challenges anymore. I guess I just couldn't resist the 10th anniversary hype. And also @Tanktimus the Encourager's necromancy skills are on point! So here I am, doing another challenge, the Anniversary Special. To celebrate the 10th anniversary everyone is getting all nostalgic. This year will be my 6th nerdversary. So much has happened during my 6 years. Like many of you, Nerd Fitness has changed my life. I may not have reached my ultimate goals yet but I've learned a ton about building habits, perseverance, fitness, and myself. I've gained a lot of friends, met a few nerds in person, received a lot of support and tried to support others. During my journey so far I've lost a lot of weight, gained some of it back, lost again, maintained. I've run my first 5K, started lifting, started sledgehammer workouts, and ran a HammerRace. My journey here has also included going through a divorce and starting over. I've started dating someone new and we are working on building a life together. I have a goal to lose 20 in '20 and I'm not off to a great start. I can't seem to stick to anything that used to work and I feel like I'm starting all over again. The goals I started working on just before the holidays seemed to be a good starting point. I've had trouble getting back to them since the new year so I figure I'll start over from there. Since this is the 10th Anniversary Special my goals can earn me up to 10 daily points. Since I've had so much trouble staying connected and posting regularly I will also earn a bonus point for posting daily. Goal 1: Intermittent Fasting This seems to work well for me. If I eat earlier than 14 hours it's never anything good anyway. It keeps me from eating late and keeps me from snacking in the evening. 3 points for fasting 14 hours 2 point for fasting 13 hours 1 point for fasting 12 hours Goal 2: Eat Your Freggies I don't really care about freggies but by trying to get 3 servings in and fasting for 14 hours it makes it more difficult to eat junk. 3 points for 3 servings 2 points for 2 servings 1 point for 1 servings Goal 3: Steps I can be really lazy. I'll try not to be. 3 points for 10,000 steps 2 points for 8,000 steps 1 point for 6,000 steps Goal 4a: Workouts Edit - Goal 4 will be a Pass/Fail goal to post every day. I have been having trouble with this for the past year. This is the habit I need to get back to. Goal 4b: Workouts EDIT - BONUS GOAL I know I'll struggle with this one. I've found it very difficult to make time for this. I haven't made it a priority. Anything counts for this goal. Pass/Fail. 1 point for doing something.
  3. Hey Doodlies, and welcome to a new challenge! This challenge is only open to existing Doodlies, you know who you are! If you're not a Doodlie, I'm sorry this is not for you. This time we're playing hangman. But no ordinary hangman, it's Doodlie hangman! We're having two teams again: Pancakes and Waffles. Sign up here if you want to join. So how do we play? I've got a list of challenges here. Each challenge will earn your right to guess a letter. There is no taking turns. The faster you finish your challenge the sooner you get the right to a letter. If you think you know the word: too bad, you still have to guess each letter separately (you'll just be guessing them right). You work together on completing the challenges. For example: one of the challenges is meditate for an hour. You meditated 10 minutes and one of your team mates meditated 50 minutes. You now have completed this challenge and earned the right to a letter. You win when: You're in team pancake The other team will pick a word of x letters (the words of both teams have twice the amount of letters as there are teammates in the team that guesses the letters). The team that guessed the most words at the end of the challenge has won. If a new team member wants to join mid challenge, or if someone wants to leave the challenge, they may do so when there is a new word to guess. We'll start February 11th (Monday) Until then: - What do we need to change about the rules to make it more fair? - Do you know any more challenges we can add? - What challenges need to change to make them all as equal as possible? - Anything else you like to add?

  4. Welcome all Doodlies*!! *I'm sorry - this is a closed group, open to all Doodlies. Once a Doodlie, always a Doodlie. You know who you are. There is much Doodlie lore, with a long and smutty history. We've always dreamed of our own island where we can escape the drudgeries of life and come together to be with our people. Alas, it has been found! Land ho, Doodlie Island exists! Unfortunately, the Breakfast Wars have been rekindled. The pancakes and waffles landed on opposite shores and must battle for the rights to the island. What will we do? Who will win? Ready to Play? Sign up here The Battle for Doodlie Island OK, I am hoping everyone is up for a competition this challenge. If not, the battle can be postponed to some other challenge. But if we are up for it.... here is the gist. There are also a few holes in my idea to fill in during week 0. Orange tiles are pancakes home base, green for waffles. This is a battle for all the tiles on the map. Every 10 minutes of exercise yields 1 unit Cardio units = defense on existing tiles Strength units = offense on other tiles yoga/stretching units = range attacks (range of 3 but extra units can be added for each additional tile) You can not take over another tile with a range attack. Each blue tile has a basic defense of 1,2, or 3 determined randomly The Doodlie Castle has a basic defense of +10 and is immune to range attacks. Each team works to accumulate points/units and then decide where to place them. The map tiles will change color as we battle it out. I don't know if this is a daily battle, weekly, or something in between. Do we take turns? Do we apply points all at once? Also, the map has a few gaps. Throw your ideas out for location names and we can fill in the rest of the map.
  5. We are The Doodlies - aka Accountabiddlydoodlies - aka Miscellaneous Beings Intent on Losing Weight* *This is a Closed Group and only open to current and former Doodlies - you know who you are. Please PM for interest The Doodlies are a bunch of people who together for a while now. We have had our ups, we have had our downs. But the main thing is we stuck together for all that time. At this point it feels like we are in a bit of a slump lately. It is time we do something that helps us have a look into the daily grind we go to. To help us bond and better understand each other. With this idea in mind i had a bolt of inspiration yesterday. IN order to better understand each other every doodlie designs a workout challenge for the others. This workout will lst for a week and is meant to be a view into the routine of the doodlie who designed the workout routine. Every doodlie gets a number assigned. The workout of the week will be decided by a die roll. The workout routine you design has to be a routine where you need as little equipment as possible to make sure everyone can participate. If there are excercises that you can not do just ask the designer if there is an alternative you can do. If you run into any difficulties post them here to discuss them and help each other out. Try to keep you workout secret until you are rolled. We will roll for a new workout every sunday.

  6. We are The Doodlies - aka Accountabiddlydoodlies - aka Miscellaneous Beings Intent on Losing Weight* *This is a Closed Group and only open to current and former Doodlies - you know who you are. Please PM for interest. We Doodlies have experienced a lot of change over the years, yes plural, that we have been together. In the absence of a clear PVP challenge this time around, and the fact that I encountered the Great Yak on my recent travels, I was struck by a bolt of inspiration... It's time to return to our roots. I dug around and found the original accountabiddlydoodlies thread for your reading pleasure. We Doodlies haven't been as active recently so let's start with our original credo: I intend to lose some weight in a healthy, sensible way this challenge. Do you also intend to lose some weight in a healthy, sensible way this challenge? Then let us kick each other's rear ends for the next six weeks so that we stay on track! I think we can forego the introductions so instead of the original questions let's start out with some new ones: 1.) What is your main goal this challenge? We started off joining this group as beings intent on losing weight. Some of our goals have changed. Where are you now? 2.) What do you most want accountability for and what type of accountability would benefit you the most? How can we do to help you achieve your goals? 3.) Are you interested in a PVP this challenge and if so, what type? This, as always, is optional in addition to our regular merry band of supporters. Want to sit this challenge out or do you have a great idea for some competition? Or should we do something completely different?
  7. Welcome to the battle between the pancakes and the waffles This fight is so intense, so passionate that it can only be fought by real doodlies What I'm trying to say is: we don't except any new recruits, I'm sorry. Don't forget to sign up for the team you want to join This round we are doing a scavenger hunt. What is this, you might wonder. Well, we collect items. The team with the most items collected at the end of the challenge (namely March 10) has won. What items do we collect? We are going to make a spreadsheet of this. Because we love spreadsheets. An item can be anything from doing burpees to meditate for a given amount of time. For those in the D&D pvp: the challenges I put in for now are the same as the ones you need to level up your skills. This way it's easier to participate in both pvp's If you think of a fun item for the hunt, please share! May the best breakfast item win.
  8. I couldn't have said it better Welcome back to a brand new Doodlie challenge! Here is our sign up sheet (If you're not on the list and you want to be contact @deftona) Here is our pvp thread (Just for the story! Questions, suggestions about the pvp can be asked here) Now all we need is a challenge (I'll update this post with the challenge once we've thought of something) Let me hear your ideas on what we're going to do this challenge
  9. The doodlies are back for a brand new challenge! If you want to be a doodlie, I understand, we are awesome. Contact @deftona and she can put you on the waiting list. We've got two divisions: the griddle, where you are now and the nuthouse. Both waiting lists are under Def's control, so PM here for more info. This round we are going to play battle ships. Links to the important documents: Template scoresheet and rules (on the second tab) Sign in sheet (for former and current doodlies) Don't forget to put the link to your challenge on the sign in sheet so we can find you. Important: If you wish to take a week off from this pvp, say so BEFORE that week starts! I'll adjust the amount of points you'll need to make a hit. Otherwise the amount of points you'll need for a hit will remain the same as stated in the sheet. <EleventyThousandAndThanSomething
  10. Subtitlted: Wonder Woman battles the Dark Playground and the Clutter that attempts to control her life Since joining NF I’ve been able to take control of my food choices and my fitness. I obviously still struggle with these but I have come a long way in building good habits. I've lost 80 pounds since joining and started doing new activities that I never would have dreamed of before. Life is getting pretty awesome. But now that I have accomplished so much and have a different mindset in those areas, there are some other negative habits I am ready to tackle. Boring Backstory Present Day: So I found this article on Briniel’s last challenge. The way it portrays procrastination is really helpful in visualizing and tackling this bad habit. I spend too much time in the Dark Playground and never focus on the work in the Dark Woods. I should be able to get more done and have more time to actually enjoy my free time in the Happy Playground. using this metaphor really helps me visualize the enemy and work on this habit. Tied up with this habit of procrastination is my tendency to create clutter and then procrastinate its demise. Tackling these habits also aligns with my 2016 roadmap. Battling procrastination will not only help me be more productive but it should allow for more actual free time to do some of the epic quests things I never seem to have time for. My other goals aren’t really changing. Eat. Lift. Ruck. Sleep. Fight Villains. Repeat. Bulletproof Bracelets Macros. Calories under 1600, at least 100g protein, preferably 120g carbs or less but this is not as strict. All subject to change. And change it has. I'm going to use this challenge to try and unlock my macros for optimal performance. Attempt #1: Stay at 1600 calories except for recovery days. Recovery days will be 1700 calories. Also, per trainer, use all the calories. If I have calories leftover at the end of the day, use them...but use them well. Amazonian Strength Lift 3 days a week (and whatever else the trainer throws at me) Lasso of Truth Ruck 3 days a week, still no distance or time requirement. Just get out there. Tiara Battle the Dark Playground. I identify so much with this article on procrastination. My biggest issues are either just putting things off that have to get done until the Panic Monster comes out or I ‘multitask’ by doing some of my work with the TV on in the background or pretend that I can play Sims at the same time. Each week I'll make a To-Do list for each category in my Passion Planner and prioritize. I know I can’t just jump in and be productive all the time so my goal will be to spend at least 5 tomatoes a week on my to-do list items without distractions. The goal here is to train the instant gratification monkey to behave with little time-outs in the Dark Woods so i can get some work done. The Dark Playground Based on my 2016 roadmap these are the items that I need to spend more time on: · Reading - I have not yet selected a book for this challenge... · Keeping the house tidy (Fly Lady) · KonMari – This challenge’s focus is books. (I’m a little frightened) · Being productive o Being prepared for class o Boy Scout treasurer duties o Personal paperwork and tasks o Being less distracted at work Some rules and exceptions: Villain Face-Off Battle Since my fitness and diet goals are pretty consistent there will be a heavy emphasis on productivity. As in the past, each villain has 2 categories of goals that are required to defeat them. Other NF rebels sign up to represent a villain. Each week, I’ll randomly select a villain and both myself and the villain will select a goal in each category. Highest score or closest to 100% wins the Face-Off. I award myself 1 stat point for every win (or draw) representing the skill that best matches the goal category. This challenge’s villains: Pick Your Own Villain!!! In order to sign up, please select a DC villain and sign up with your name and your villain’s name on the sign up sheet. Posting your own villain pic is optional. Please limit yourself to existing villains, thanks. Also, select your categories.. At least 1 category must be Epic Quest or General Health. For the second goal you can also select from Food, Strength, or Conditioning. We will each pick our own goals, but the villain picks the category. Wonder Woman does not get to pick her villain’s strengths so she must be able to defeat whatever presents itself.
  11. Intro: I joined NF a week before the April 2015 6WC started. At that point, I was five weeks into a new workout routine, and nine weeks into attempting to eat better. There are links to my introduction/origin story and my first five challenges in my sig below. Feel free to go rummage around in there. I’ve gone from 255lbs at the end of January 2015 to 209 as of right now, getting as low as 196 by challenge 4 before backsliding after a horrible flu and then cake season. It’s a work in progress. Life Quest: There is an ongoing life goal to dress like a proper grown-up adult man, in clothes which actually look good on me, and make my wife proud to be seen with me when I take her out. The general aim is to continue to overhaul my entire wardrobe, getting rid of anything which falls into one of the following categories: baggy, sagging or ragged. Over my first four challenges, I set a specific goal of getting properly fitted for a good quality, tailored, three-piece suit, and get a good photograph taken wearing it, because I was sick of being disgusted when I looked in the mirror or saw a photo of myself. Having hit that goal, I kind of lost focus over the last couple of months, so for now the focus is on getting back to basics, keeping it simple, and shooting for a fixed target weight of 180. Quest 1: Roots Bloody Roots Back to where it all began. 7,000 calories burned on the cross trainer at my gym. Headphones on, and go to the Happy Place.

  12. I'm thinking about starting a small business to provide paleo families with a quick and easy way to enjoy pancakes (one of my pre-paleo favorites). The mix I make would require less than 3 ingrediants from your kitchen and less than 10 minutes to make. It's like Bisquick, but better tasting and without any of that processed junk. The recipe I use includes coconut flour, almond flour, arrowroot powder, tapioca flour, and baking soda. All of these are healthy and paleo. I know not every paleo nerd loves to bake as much as I do, so this would be a way for other people to enjoy some of their favorite foods that they've had to give up. I always felt excluded when my non-paleo family ate pancakes, does anyone else have a similar situation? Now with this mix, I can quickly whip up some paleo pancakes and boom! I'm part of the family. So yay or nay to a paleo pancake mix?
  13. I've found some recipes for pancakes made with coconut flour. They are advertised as a paleo alternative to traditional breakfast foods. I've never heard anything about coconut flour and I wanted to see what information was out there about it nutrition wise. Anybody ever use it? How does it taste/cook?
