  1. Just seeing if there are folk out here in the Perth and the west that are Rebels and maybe looking at doing something. Just testing the waters so to speak, see if anyone's interested
  2. G'day! A West-Aussie here, and massive metal-head (I endeavour to name each of my challenges after a metal band) and most certainly a nerd. I recently finished my Bachelor of Games Design and am looking forward to paving a career in video game development. I do love my movies (every sort) and my books (I will admit I haven't and don't read alot, but it is one of the things that I really wish I did) and table-top gaming is a big favourite of mine. I have lost about 20kg(~45lbs) over the last year, and am ultimately looking to lose that amount again over the next year, which is certainly negotiable as I would like to put some more muscle on, which would offset some of that weight. I discovered this wonderful community a couple of years ago, thanks to my sister Rachy87. Last year I was rather absent from the community, but I still pushed myself ahead and lost that 20kg. This year I want to be more involved, more focused and go that extra distance. At the age of 25 now, I have weight to lose and muscle to gain. These are my current goals and aim at getting my health in check. Later down the road I will look to strength, speed and aesthetic goals, but health is more important at the moment. I am still in Act I right now! Current Stats: H: 182cm (6"0') W: 90kg (200lbs) (I always do my best to include conversions, because I know that there are many fellow Rebels that are used to different units, but always keep in mind that these are rough conversions I do mentally) I bought a FitBit last year, and it's tracking certainly held me accountable for what I was doing, and as a gamer I was determined to keep getting better and earning those badges! I will incorporate my FitBit and it's tracking into my goals where appropriate and possible. Right now I have back issues, this is related to my pelvis tilt/spine curvature, and am fixing this with regular visits to the physio. I have mostly sorted this now, but I am still in pain everyday. The reason I mention this is because it will effect my goals and how I go about achieving them. Health is the priority, so goals will be down-tuned as necessitated. Main Quest: A Funeral Mist It feels as though years ago I cast off on a journey to escape Sodom, pass through the badlands and descend into the caverns of hell and further onwards to the cesspools of the deepest corners of Hell. A hard earned and tiresome journey it felt. And yet it was just my mind casting off and dreaming about it. As of late I have been doing some real travelling, been truly trying hard and have been looking to escape these walls. A funeral mist now lays upon those thoughts of escape, as I now realise the true journey ahead of me. My mind reborn into the present, I seek to pave the way out of here, and truly pass over the badlands, this time not some fantasy or dream. My pained back being the most likely source of contention out of here, an injury too easily sustained in this madhouse we call Sodom. But still taking the reigns for myself and trying my hand at a better existence is a true testament to my will and conviction. I think back to those dreams of the caverns and what felt like a dragon's force pushing me forward, this is what keeps me going and looking for a way out of here. This place is mayhem and I seek to escape it soon. I just need to get my footing and I will be out of here... Main Quest Objective Alpha: A Brick in the Wall I must journey through this city and find any gap in the walls, any lapse in the guard, any possible way out of here. Something I can aim for to escape. I will walk up and down these walls until I find it. Walking is the main focus of this goal. Keeping my fitness up while my back is injured is hard, but walking is good for it, and it helped me lose 20kg already. I can't walk for long periods of time, but if I aim to lots of shorter periods each day I can get there. I feel it might become complicated trying to track this intricately as I need to start and stop walking and sitting so much at the moment. So I think aiming for a step count on the FitBit is appropriate here. A: 9,000+ Average steps a day over the challenge period - the recommendation is 10,000 but I don't want to be needlessly pushing myself if it will make my back worse B: 7,000-8,999 Average steps a day - 7k is my current daily goal for my fit bit, so if I get it to go off every day, I know I will get a B on this one for sure C: 5,000-6,999 Average steps a day D: 3,500-4,999 Average steps a day - my current daily average is just below 3.5k, and I consider a D a less than average grade, so I feel this suits for making at least a small improvement F: <3,500 Average steps a day - this means I am actively doing less than I am now, which is the opposite of progress! Main Quest Objective Beta: Not the Rack My back causes me great pain throughout the days of searching for a way out, but I quarrel not, for it is not as though I had to suffer the rack, like many that live here. Although part of me wonders if a short time on it might just fix the issue, without going too extreme of course. As has been, and will continue to be, said, my back is causing me problems at the moment, and caused stagnation in my weight loss and fitness gain. It is under control and I have plenty of exercises to help with the pain, and to also help the problem. I am rather particular about making sure I get them done, but I am still a bit lax, and with going for a job interview today, there is a greater chance of me being distracted from doing them. So I want to spend this time focusing on getting all the exercises done every day. A: Don't miss a single day for my exercises AND do at least 2x the reps for each exercise - doing extra reps has been encouraged, and I generally do try to at least twice as much, so I feel confident about this one B: Don't miss more than 1 day over the whole challenge C: Don't miss any days during 3 or more weeks of the challenge (i.e. if I miss a single day, once a week for 3 of the weeks, it will count as a C) D: At least one full week, and no more than a total of 7 days missed over the whole challenge F: Anything outside of the D requirements Main Quest Objective Gamma: The Oncoming Thirst If there is one thing I know of the badlands, especially from my dreams before the funeral mist of my dream-self, is that it is hot and dry, and little water can be found out there. I must stock up if I am to travel to the obsidian gates. Dying of dehydration is a real threat, and a feeble way to go when I am trying so hard to escape this place. I have been getting lax in my water consumption, and in this Aussie heat you really notice it. I need to get back to a proper daily routine of drinking water, I won't lie you do feel better when you keep your fluids up (and when they aren't sugary fluids!). A: Average of 2.5L a day over this challenge - it is January and this is WA and I am expecting to get back into a fitness routine... ...if anything this may even be a bit low, but I think it foolish to consume too much B: Average of 2.1L a day C: Average of 1.8L a day - not quite to daily recommended average of 8 glasses, but a massive improvement and undoubtedly a great benchmark D: Average of 1.5L a day F: 3 or more days with less than 0.5L of water - this can fail me from an A. The point of this quest is consistency and habit, not just drinking big to make up the average Life Quest Objective: Knowledge is Power, Talk is Cheap If I am ever to get out of this place I am going to need the eyes and ears of others. But I will also need to ensure I know who I can talk to and when I can talk to them. I need everyone's knowledge, and to get that, conspicuously or not, I must talk to them. The more I chat, the more I will learn, and the better my chance at making it out of here. The more I learn about outside will be important too. I need to know what is really out there, and how to overcome what I find. Confidence is something I have always struggled with, and the desire to entire a career such as game development, especially as an indie developer, means I need to network. To network I need to talk. So I think for this challenge this will be my life goal. Communication, especially with people I don't know, don't know well, or haven't communicated with in a long time. Even it is a small amount, or even an un-reciprocated attempt on my behalf, it is something and it will work towards my confidence and ability to network. A: Small talk with someone I normally wouldn't 4+ times a week, every week B: Small talk with someone I normally wouldn't on average 2+ times a week C: Small talk with someone I normally wouldn't on average once a week D: Small talk with someone I normally wouldn't at least twice over the whole challenge F: One person over the whole challenge might be one person that I choose because I know they won't engage or some other excuse, 2 or more (for a D) means I am at least trying Time to start the real journey! The last 4 chapters were just a dream, not comes the real deal. Thanks for reading, thanks for any replies you leave, and good luck to all of you taking on challenges yourself! Cheers, -Radact
  3. Howdy! Big metalhead here (which is where I get the inspiration for my challenge titles from \m/ ), hailing from West-'straya I am currently studying games design and looking for a career in the video game industry. Having gone from an extremely active childhood, to an extremely chillaxed adulthood, it would be a lie if I didn't say I have some weight to lose. I carry most of it in my rum-belly, which as far as I know, is one of the unhealthiest ways to carry weight. I used to play footy (AFL) and spent a little bit of time in the gym focusing on general strength. Having reached the ripe age of 24 exactly one week ago, my focus is on getting my health back in check, rather than purely cosmetic goals. With a good 20 odd kilos to lose, this is really the prime focus for me. Drop the weight and get fit, as these are two very different things, and I understand that, but they are both important to be as healthy as possible. I would like to focus on my strength at the same time, as it is something I would like to get back, after years of pushing keys rather than weights. Current Stats: H: 6'00" W: 105kg BF: ~33% MAIN QUEST: RISE SON OF SODOM Chapter 4: Mayhem within the Trinity I know very little of the time I have spent here of late. Hellspawn overwhelmed me again, and left me here to rot. I still remember travelling from Sodom, through the outlands and battling my way down the tunnels into the outer cesspools of Hell. The large obsidian gates were a sight to see and that memory certainly has not faded from my mind. But the long string of battles and skirmishes I had as I descended those tunnels has blurred into one blurred, sprawling mess. I let the rabble of this shadowed halls get the best of me, but I have pulled a second wind and must dust myself off, find some food, something to drink, a way to traverse this unlit tunnels and ultimately reach those cesspools. My journey was staggered and pulled to a halt, but it has not come to an end. Their voices linger against these barren walls, and their stories lay locked within the brimstone itself. From what I have gathered there is a trio of Hellspawn rabble that call themselves the Trinity. They keep the weaker beasts of these tunnels in line. It sounds as though they control them with an iron fist and an image of strength, inciting fear within those scattered out here. However there is another story that seems to line these walls. It sounds as though the three of them have gotten into squabbles over who should look after what artifacts, loot, food and who gets first go at unsuspecting wanderers of this place. These stories are old and newer stories seem to layer on slower and slower. When they do they tell a tale of increased decay and hate between the Trinity, and although they still reign over this place, some of the other rabble are whispering rumours of a desire to try and over-throw them. I see no need to get involved with the politics of the bottom feeders, but maybe taking out the trio will give me a better chance at escaping this place and reaching those outer cesspools. Maps, artifacts, tools and less resistance would all be beneficial to me now, weak and on the back foot. I fell off the trail with the last challenge and I didn't participate in 3 challenges since then (I think it was 3...). I do want to change my lifestyle and get my health in check. I want to continue to be involved in the NF community. I apologise for my absence from NF, and I hope to get back into the rhythm of things again with this challenge. I have really put myself on the back foot since I stopped my participation with the NF community and I am looking forward to getting back on the road to a healthier future. I haven't been focusing on or maintaining my fitness, so this challenge I will go back to basics and really try to get into real, hard-set habits. Food and water consumption, cardio workouts, weights workouts and trying to reduce my weight will be the main focus here and now. The reason behind including the word trinity in the title for this quest is because I want to focus on setting up the foundations to getting healthy and maintaining habits, and I want to represent this by being successful and even just partaking in 3 consecutive 6 week challenges and building them on top of one another. A want to focus on a more long term attempt, and I think 3 is a good number to do this. MAIN QUEST OBJECTIVE KAPPA: FEAST ON THE CADAVERS OF THE WEAK I am weak, disoriented and running off the back foot. I need to eat and drink, and the only way to do that in these desolate halls of barren brimstone is kill the Hellspawn and to feed off them. Their blood will restore the power I have lost over these passed... However long it has been. I must find and defeat at least a couple of these rabble in order to restore myself to health and carry on with my journey. If I am to take on any of the Trinity, I will need my strength and power at full force. Watching what I eat and drink is, I think, one of the most integral things in getting healthy. I have been good ever since I first started here on NF, and have almost completely foregone with the large consumption of energy drinks I once used to consume. However I could wrangle in my consumption a bit more. Food is the most important aspect here, and it is definitely something I could improve on. I don't frequently eat excessive amounts of food, or unnecessarily unhealthy foods, but I do every now and again, and if I can get this in line I should be able to make things easier in the losing of weight department. I also feel that observing, monitoring and reflecting on everything I intake is good way to understand myself, my body, my habits and my health. -Every day I will give myself a grade out of 5 for how healthy and appropriately portioned the meals are that I have. -Every day I will give myself a grade out of 5 for how much water I have consumed, offset by any unhealthy beverages I have during the day -Every week I will give myself a grade out of 15 for how appropriately timed my meals were. This is to do with the fact that I often (97-99% of the time) skip breakfast altogether and/or sometimes have a late lunch. This gives me a score out of 500 (510 to be exact), which is a good way to gauge, monitor and reflect on how I am eating and drinking every day. A: 425+ (4.2/5 every day for both water and meals and 12.0/15 every week for meal timing as a minimum to get this grade) B: 385+ C: 350+ (3.4/5 every day and 10.8 weekly as a minimum) D: 290+ F: <290 (2.8/5 every day and 9.2 weekly or less is a fail) Water Scoring: 1.0L = 0; 2.0L = 5; :. Every 1/5 is equal to 200ml over 1 litre. Probably the simplest scoring for my water intake I have done so far, and I like it Soft drinks will deduct from my score of water by 50% of the amount I consume, i.e. a 375ml can of coke would reduce that days score by ~200ml. This is because I personally feel that these sorts of drinks are quite dehydrating and I should have a least 1 glass of water just to counteract them. Energy drinks will deduct at a rate of 100%. So a 500ml can would reduce the daily score by 500ml, as the caffeine in this is much more dehydrating. Alcoholic beverages will be the same as energy drinks. I don't have a lot of these beverages so it isn't going to be a hard thing to monitor and score and everything like that. I have gotten into the habit when I am at gigs, where I have 2 rums then 2 waters, 2 rums then 2 waters, etc etc, throughout the night. So, as long as I stay with that (which I should now, it is a habit I have been building for probably a year now), I can just disregard the alcohol and water from any gig night. This may sound like it will complicate things, but as I said, softies and energy drinks aren't things that I have often, and given that I will just ignore what I drink at gigs, there will be very little adjustments I will have to make along the way. MAIN QUEST OBJECTIVE LAMBDA: RACING THE SHADOWS These tunnels are blacker than I remember. Being disoriented certainly doesn't help either. The blast of fire through the tunnels cast strange shadows and create illusions on every turn. The stories that have filtered into these walls can only lead me so far, and describe where I might find one of the trinity, however to get out of here and bridge the gaps I will have to follow the light of the burning wreaths and race the shadows that follow them. Cardio. It is important and I don't partake in this sort of exercise anywhere near enough. I am about to go back to uni, however I maybe changing to a different campus soon, so I have to develop habits outside of the walks I would take to and from the train station. My previous challenge saw me try and get out and go jogging. Ultimately I didn't, and so I think I will try and really focus on this one again, but with a bit more emphasis. This is all an effort to focus on health, not about how I feel about jogging. A: 3+ hours of jogging AND 6+ hours of walking AND 1+ hours of other cardio exercising (e.g. exercise bike) AND 2+ dedicated exercises every week B: 2+ hours of jogging AND 4.75+ hours of walking AND 30+ minutes of other cardio exercising AND at least 1 dedicated exercise every week C: 1+ minutes of jogging AND 3.25+ hours of walking AND 10+ minutes of other cardio exercising every week D: 15+ minutes of jogging AND 2+ hours of walking every week F: Anything less than D. Any workouts that I do with Nim or Rachy will boost my grade up for that week. The aim is to drop down the grades as I fail rather than build them up and cut them off the second I fail. I feel that that would be conducive to a less motivating environment and restrict overall success. MAIN QUEST OBJECTIVE MU: MINI-BOSS BATTLE 1: FIGHT THE FIRST OF THE TRINITY If I am to escape these wretched tunnels I must find the Trinity, defeat them and use whatever benefits I can get from doing so to get out of here. Those outer cesspools are within reach, but I need the strength to get out of here. Fighting and defeating the first of the Trinity will take all my strength, hopefully I have enough, but it will also allow me to build it up too. This is going to be one tough battle. Strength is something that will help me on my way to get healthy, and I want to build it up again anyway. I feel that if I can get into a routine with both cardio and weight exercies then I can form a synergy and help myself out in that respect. A: 9+ weights workouts every fortnight (+/- 1) B: 7+ weights workouts every fortnight (+/- 1) C: 6+ weights workouts every fortnight (+/- 2) D: 4+ weights workouts every fortnight (+/- 2) F: Failing a D once and gaining a D once or worse. Much like the cardio, this will be a matter of downgrading my grades for each fortnight I don't do as well, rather than cutting off all better grades as a result of an early failure, which won't motivate me to get out there and push harder. LIFE QUEST OBJECTIVE: SHED THE NEEDLESS DEBRIS Ancient halls of brimstone and blackened stone decays and crumbles over time. The debris litters the ground in the tunnels down here and slowly the dust lifts and falls on me, as I rub against a wall it crumbles a little bit on to me and it ultimately collects up a decent amount of mass. This added baggage drags me down and makes progression slower. I need to clean my self, dust away the debris, traverse more efficiently and try and reduce the weight I am carrying around with me. I want to keep this challenge simple and I want to focus on trying to lose weight. So this life quest is about a personal health milestone. For a few months now I have been hovering around 104-106kgs while I have sort of trying to watch what I consume. Which is a decrease since I started here on NF (109 was where I was at the start). So my goal here is to get out of the triple digits and into the doubles. Realistic and healthy weight loss is considered to be between about 0.5 and 1.5 kilos a week. So 6 weeks at 5 kilos means about 0.85kgs a week, which is within that range. So I think it is doable! The challenges are all about having a go, so I shall! A: <99kgs B: <=100kgs C: <101.5 kgs D: <103.5 kgs F: 103.5+ kgs Reasonable, possible and a good foundation, let's hope I can do it! Thank you so much for taking the time and reading this, it means that you are supporting me and it really means alot, thankyou
  4. When there is nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire. Mellon, Hello friends! I am Nim, the little, the small, but by no means, the weak. I hail from Perth, Western Australia. At 23 years of age, I am almost finished my degree in Forensic Science. (For those who may know me as being nearly done from last years challenges, well the new budget proposed by the Aussie government really fluffed that up for me). I suffer from Celiac disease, it's plagued me for my entire life, but it really did it's number in the last few years. I've spent them being constantly ill, always tired, and forever struggling to manage my disease. I also suffer from Bipolar, which I was on antidepressants for 5 years, and from this (and my celiac), I gained about 20kg (44 pounds). I went from being 50kg to about 70kg. (110 pounds to 154 pounds). I am now a much happier person, and my bipolar is in my power, so I am looking to lose the weight that I gained. I have done 3 Nerd Fitness challenges now, and I had to stop doing them because I was unwell. In short, my celiac disease was unmanaged, and due to this, I was gaining alot of weight when I exercised. When I started the last challenge, I gained about 6 kilos in the first few weeks. I couldn't understand where I had gone wrong! So I did my research, and now here I am, ready to take on the challenge, and ready to try again. I think I have my disease in check now, and I can finally get on the road to losing weight. And now for brief lesson on human anatomy and Celiac Disease! Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease. I am very allergic to the protein known as gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. Celiac disease has a genetic disposition, meaning it is often hereditary. The genes associated with susceptibility are HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8. Environmental factors can also play a role in unearthing allergens. Sometimes the disease can be triggered after pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, viral infection or severe emotional stress. For me, my disease went crazy after I stopped taking the antidepressants. How did I know I had Celiac? I was tired, food was making me ill. I always had heartburn, I felt sore and achy. I often experience (even now) this feeling of cold, numb, tingling in my hands and feet. I knew something was wrong, so I went and asked my doctor what he wanted to do. He suspected a food allergy, and I was tested for many things. The diagnosis of Celiac begins with blood tests used for the initial screening. Those with Celiac disease have higher than normal levels of certain antibodies in their blood. Doctors search for proteins that react against the body’s own cells or tissues in their blood, and will test for high levels of anti-tissue transglucatminase antibodies (tTGA) or anti-endomysium antibodies (AMA). Untreated, Celiac disease will lead to poor nutrition, and malabsorption of nutrients. Malabsorption is the interruption of delivery of pancreatic juice or bile to the small intestine, as well as a change in dynamics that could damage the intestinal mucosa. It is also suspected to lead to osteoporosis, infertility, miscarriage, depression and dental enamel defects. These effects can be severe or atypical, and they may even go undetected for years. Celiac disease is often misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. Often in adults, other symptoms can be considered a prerequisite to Celiac. These include anaemia bloating and flatulence, diarrhea or constipation, fatigue, weakness and lethargy, and stomach cramps. In a normal, healthy human body, the lining of the Small Intestine (SI), which is also called the small bowel, is coated in millions of small worm-like protrusions known as villi. One of the functions of the cells on the villi is to breakdown and absorb nutrients in food. In those with celiac disease, the mucous, or lining of the SI is damaged from an intake of gluten. This results in the villi flattening, known as villous atrophy. The surface area of the small intestine, which enables the absorption of nutrients and minerals, is reduced considerably and this can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Villi also allow nutrients from food to be absorbed through the walls of the SI into the blood stream. Without healthy villi, a person will become malnourished, despite what food they ingest. In someone with Celiac disease, even if the patient is asymptomatic, damage to the small bowel can still occur, as there can be no correlation between symptoms and bowel damage. Therefore, Celiac disease is both a disease of malabsorption and an abnormal immune reaction to gluten. Inside the small intestine, the breakdown of gluten proteins interacts with the breakdown of molecules in the immune system in the GI tract. This forms a complex chain reaction, which results in T-Cells attacking the intestinal lining and causing damage. Those with Celiac Disease will remain sensitive to glutinous products their whole life, so in one sense there is no cure. A gluten free diet will allow the disease to be managed and kept conditioned, and is so far the only recognised treatment. A strict adherence to a gluten free diet will allow the lining of the small bowel to heal, and the symptoms to resolve. As long as this diet is adhered to, no complications should arise. The dedication to this diet must be life long. A person with Celiac disease should learn to read ingredients lists for hidden sources of gluten, often labeled Maltrodextin. To heal the bowel, it will take 3-6 months for a child, or up to seven years depending on the heal time of the small intestine. If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to ask them. I'm very open to talking about my disease, and also my bipolar. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current Stats Height: 159cm Weight: 80.4kg Waist: Hips: Bust: Body Fat: Body Muscle: (will be completed tomorrow) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Main Quest I wish to feel better about myself, both physically and mentally. This means to find inner peace with my demons, and to lose weight. I wish to wake up each day, and embrace the world I have been given, rather than to mourn the world I was not. Goal One: Om Nom Nom Grass I'll be giving up soft drinks except for very special occasions (no more than one glass a week in that case), and all junk food. By junk food, I mean 'take out', chips, candy etc, but I want to consume alot more fruit and vegetables then I am now. I am allowed dark chocolate/healthy desserts, but only in moderation. I'll be keeping a food diary because I tend to snack alot, and I'm hoping I can curb that. Im also limiting gluten free bread, as I feel I consume too much. Grading: A - Healthy eating, no soft drinks, B - Healthy eating, no soft drinks, C - Healthy eating, some soft drinks, D - Some healthy eating, softdrinks, snacking frequently F - Softdrinks, snacking, bad eating habits. Goal Two: And From Embers, a Fire is Born I will endeavour to work out at least 3 times a week by myself. (or with someone else if they'd like to join me) On the alternative days, I would like to incorporate yoga. A 30-60 minute session that will help me to stretch and flex. I will incorporate the Nerd Fitness playground workout, as I really enough that workout. Monday - Run/NF Tuesdays - Yoga Wednesdays - Run/NF Thursdays - Yoga Fridays - Run/Yoga Saturdays - Work, Yoga Sundays - Run/NF Grading: A - Attended a least 95% of all sessions. B - Attended a least 80% of all sessions. C - Attended a least 70% of all sessions. D - Attended a least 60% of all sessions. F - Attended a least 50% of all sessions. Goal Three: Glow Like a Worm I have had my doctors appointment earlier this week and have been given the green go for my vitamins. They were all over the place 6 months ago, and I've been taking supplements every day for 3 or 4 months now. The only thing I am lacking is my Vitamin D, which I dont absorb properly anyway, so I need to double my intake, and get that under control. So I continue taking my vitamins for now, and try to maintain. I'll also be trying to sleep better, arising at a better time, drinking more water. After these 6 weeks, I want to glow with health. Grading: A - Take vitamin every day, drink at least 1L of water, get out of bed earlier. (95%) *ie 6/7 days B - Take vitamin most every day, drink at least 1L of water, get out of bed earlier. (80%) *ie 5/7 days C - Take vitamin most every day, drink at least 1L of water, get out of bed earlier. (70%) *ie 4/7 days D - Take vitamin most every day, drink at least 1L of water, get out of bed earlier. (60%) *ie 3/7 days F - Take vitamin every other day, drink some water, sleep in alot (50%) *ie 2/7 days LIFE QUEST Get out more. I spend a fair amount of time cooped up because I study alot, but come by the second week of this challenge, all my exams will be over. So I plan to be a bit more social without having to spend money. Whether I take up a hobby, or just get out for a walk, I want to seize that day! Grading: A - Carpe Diem. DAY SEIZED B - Go out most days a week, even just for a little bit. Get those hobbies going! C - Go out most days a week, even just for a little bit. Achieve some hobbies D - Go out some days a week, even just for a little bit. F - Sit at home like the tiny winter squirrel I am, count my nuts and cry. I am hoping all these goals will enable me to lose weight, become more toned (jiggle jiggle), and to find an inner peace within myself, and allow me to control my emotions. Goal Weight (in no set time): 50-55kg. (110-121 pounds) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am also completing this challenge with Radact (my partner) and Rachy87 (my best friend and future sister-in-law). Follow them and support them too!
  5. G'day all! Brentos here. I have just recently joined NF in order to support my partner and housemates in their quests to improve their lives/health/fitness, so this is my first six-week-challenge. A 22 year old Perthonality from the far west of the lucky country, I keep busy conquering the retail world, discovering all of the heavy metal, and generally being outright hilarious. My issue is not that I have weight to lose, but weight to gain. I've been out of high school for 5 years and currently weigh less than what I did then. I consume a lot of empty calories, be it fast food or soft drinks, and am looking to eat more wholesome foods and simply to get fit and be able to feel like I'm in a healthy state. I get plenty of exercise - running around a supermarket for 45+ hours a week - but I do not eat well at all. I consume at least one energy drink most days, approx. 1L of caffeinated soft drinks and seem to gravitate towards fast food options. So I'm here to change that! Here's the facts: Height: 190cm (little more than 6') Weight: 64kgs Body Fat: ???* *I was too thin for my girlfriend's fancy scales to register me So! My Quest: North from Pallet Town Begin my journey to healthier a life Objective Nobre Uno: No more energy drinks. My first step towards cutting out caffeine from my diet will start with the removal of energy drinks. I know they are incredibly bad for me, but dammit, they just make so many delicious flavours these days! My grading: A: No energy drinks within six weeks. B: One or two during the six weeks C: Once a fortnight. D: Once a week Fail: More than one per week. Goal Numero Duo: Walk/Run more during the week Need more physical exercise in my life. Whilst I do a lot at work, I do bugger-all in my down time. A: Six days a week B: Five days C: Three days D: Two days Fail: One or none Tre quête: Brush my teeth! I only brush my teeth before going to work, and I am adamant on changing this. A: Twice a day for at seven days a week B: Twice a day for at least five days, but still once for the others C: Twice a day for at least three days, but still once for the others D: Once a day for six days Fail: As infrequent as I currently do Målsetning Fire: Write an instrumental song I am absolutely rubbish at playing any instrument. I will admit this straight out. However, for those of you who don't know, there is an amazing program called GuitarPro, where you can create music with hundreds of instruments, which a lot of bands use to tests and tab-out their original songs. I want to have written an instrumental song in GP5 of decent length. A: Completed song B: Three quarter completed C: Half done D: Started Fail: Barely started or not at all. So that's my challenge set! Stay strong with me, rebellion! -Brentos
