  1. Although technically this is my... fifth challenge. I guess I just wanted to throw a Doctor Who reference in there what with the Regeneration and all. Second verse same as the first! 1. DO PHYSICAL THERAPY 2. EAT GLUTEN FREE 3. WRITE GOOD THINGS
  2. So I thought about it means to be a successful assassin and found it covers many things. Endurance, strength, stamina and dexterity are obvious, but things like stealth and adaptability are also important. I decided to give myself a basic fitness test (no judgement, just want to know where I am starting) and as a result, I have determined the following goals. My first goal will focus on stamina. If the Zombie Hoards start coming, I need to be able to get away quickly and regroup. I want to be able to run (not walk or jog) a whole mile. If I manage to do this before the 4 weeks are up, I wil
  3. For January I invoke my namesake the Roman Goddess Terra (AKA: Mother Earth and Gaia) DRAFT - but I wanted to get something posted ASAP!!! Create an amazing foundation! Mother Earth is a giver and provides us with so much, but she must take care of herself first! Exercise: BJJ >> 2-3 times a week. Conditioning (strength) class >> 2-3 times a week Foot care/yoga >> daily Skiing or walking will happen when the weather allows Other health related goals: Mostly Paleo eating with MFP logging. Sleep aim for 7+ hours per night Do something just for me... The craft room nee
  4. Hi! I'm Raptron, gymnast, lifter and now pokétrainer extraordinnaire. My regimen of gymnastics, strength training, and now even cardio a few times a week has prepared me to take on the best and the brightest trainers in the region. Each week, I will have to fight the pokemon of a randomly generated trainer in order to progress through the tower and demonstrate my prowess in this elite competitive event. This challenge may or may not have been inspired heavily by the Assassin mini-challenges over the past months. LET'S FIGHT!!! Goal 1: Fill the Pokédex *Collect poképoses using the foll
  5. Hello! I'm Traaki, and this is my second challenge. I'm new to the Assassins (obviously) but looking forward to meeting more guildmates. Main Quest: I have some backlog of important stuff to take care of. I feel like I'm knocking it down, slowly, but I want to amp that up and have these issues dealt with by the end of this quest. In a few months, I'd like to be absolutely crushing my bodyweight workouts, and these quests will help me get there. Quest 1: Work on my dang knees. +4 CON +1 CON if completed before Week 3 As alluded to in my previous challenge, I've got a painful knee pro
  6. I decided to jump back into the challenges. A little last minute, but I hope it's the right decision. I was considering taking a break or at most jumping to the accoutabuddies to do some even more last minute cramming pre college. Maybe that AA degree would look cool on my wall, but would it benefit me more than something else I cold get done with the work and time I have right now? I know my mom would be upset, but given the choice between what to do with the few hours I have after work and the realistic amount of motivation I could put into a goal, rehabbing my body is always going to t

  8. Main Goal: Finish a 2nd challenge. Subgoals: 1. Bodyweight workout 3x a week I already know I have to keep my right arm out of the mix. I also know that I don't want to work just my left arm and risk creating more of an imbalance than I'm already going to have by the time its partner is finally healed. Ergo, the following: Focus on what I can do, sans my arms - squats, lunges, calf raises, flutter kicks, bicycle/regular sit-ups, V-ups, leg holdsTrack progressRecord progress on Fitocracy and NF 6WC threadScoring: Every workout for the week tracked and recorded = 3 pts -1pt every workout not
  9. WARNING: THIS CHALLENGE IS ABOUT VULNERABILITY, CHRISTIAN FAITH, AND RECOVERY. "Hi, my name is Granny and I'm a grateful believer in Jesus, who struggles with codependency, resentment, and food." For the last 3 years I've been a member of Celebrate Recovery (a Christ-centered recovery program), and this is how we introduce ourselves. While I haven't struggled with drugs or alcohol, I am the child of an alcoholic and the child of an abuser. I do struggle with other behaviors that have hindered my maturity as an adult. Things like stress eating, people pleasing, procrastination and
  10. This is the last KH themed challenge. Hurry up, KH3! MAIN QUEST: Get to my goal weight and be able to defend myself in the (unlikely) event of an attack. How is this already my fourth challenge?? Welp, let's get to it, shall we? QUEST 1: Run Away from Master Xehanort (+3 STA) Let’s be real: Master Xehanort is creepy as hell. You don’t want him anywhere near you, and since he’s got that fucking darkness teleport thing going on, you need to be able to run. A lot. Because if he catches you? Well, let’s just say I don’t have any extra emotional bandwidth for a roommate. CHAL
  11. Hi! Aminarra here... I'm a member of the Academy and the rebellion. Went into a tailspin for about 4 months now (jeeze) and I'm back at it I did yoga for the first time today, I'm starting personal training and physical therapy on Wednesday, and I'm full on paleo. Challenge Goal: STAY FOCUSED Mini Fitness Goals: Week 1 - 1 PT, 1 Yoga, 3 Therapy Week 2 - 2 PT, 1 Yoga, 5 Therapy Mini Food Goals: Week 1 - Pack paleo lunch 5x/week Week 2 - Pack paleo lunch 5x/week I usually stop posting after a couple of weeks, so I'm
  12. I tried to beat the sad pandas last challenge, but I didn't realize I was PLAYING INTO THEIR HANDS. See, you might not know this, but sad pandas are pedantic, points driven, and very metric based. They want you to try things that don't always make you feel better. they are not totally interested in letting you be a happy panda. so I ended up feeling more sadder, because playing the game by Sad Panda rules meant you are always going to be a sad panda. I don't want to be sad panda! I want to be a sparkly assassin! No more mopefests for me! (bonus halloween photo!) So I need to structure th
  13. Introduction Hello, I'm ElfiKay! This will technically be my third challenge, even though I didn't finish the second! [You can see that train wreck here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/53587-elfikay-joins-the-assassins/ ] I broke my foot at the start of that challenge, and it still hasn't completely healed - though it's well on the way. Main Quest Refocus and recover. Goals 1. Physical Therapy: Do my physical therapy exercises twice a day. If my therapist changes anything, I'll update this goal to match. (Side note, my doctor recommends I take up swimming since it won't
  14. So I have been following Nerd Fitness for a while, but have never joined the forums before so this is new to me. Let me start out by introducing myself. Hi! I am a Not So Nerdy Nerd...at least I think so. So this is long, kinda rantish, but I gotta vent to someone. Im tired of this, my family doesnt seem to understand where I am at, and I really need advice on how to deal with this and get back on track. I am about to have my 25th birthday and have devoted the entire last year to improving my health and fitness. At the end of June I had a major setback after a pretty awesome day of PRs in
  15. Never thought I'd end up as a belligerent tavern-dwelling NPC. Time to unleash the cool rogue it is inside. Main Quest +STAMINA: 5k under 30min. Broke all the rules and did a mini 4 week challenge before this cause I just couldn't wait. For my first real challenge the goal is to run that 5k under 30 min. My current time is 40 min. Here is the plan. Starting out at 4.5mph, I will increase speed by .4mph every week until week 4 when I reach 6mph, then play it by ear from there. Side Quest 1 +CONSTITUTION: Keep doing physio exercises everyday. Following a program like this. https://www.yo
  16. New PT short term mini-challenge! "Do all the things!" I saw the doctor two weeks ago and he told me I have a trifecta of overuse injuries: plantar fasciitis in both feet, peroneal tendinitis in my right foot, and achilles tendinopathy in both ankles. To fix this he gave me a laundry list of PT to do daily. I can do it all, and on most days I do some of it. But, as in most things, I expect that half-measures won't actually get me fixed. So, I want to challenge myself to do all the things for the last two weeks of the main challenge (I started recording my progress a week late).
  17. Introduction: I posted an introduction in the newbie forums, and I think it's a really fun look into who I am and where I'm at--it even includes pictures from our game-themed wedding. The thread can be found HERE. In a nutshell, I'm 27, overweight, and unhappy about that fact. Struggles include a "bad back" and lazy gamer tendencies. Main Quest: Lose 65 pounds overall, to make it to goal weight of 180. Quest 1: Pack a Paleo lunch 5 days per week. We eat out a lot, and eat quite a few carbs, and spend quite a bit of money. This should help with all of the above. Measurement: A
  18. Hi, Chris Hefley here. "indomitableHef" I'm 39, and live in Franklin, TN. Over the past 2 years, I've lost almost 100 lbs. I've always bee an active person, and into outdoor sports, even when I weighed 285lbs. And I had successfully lost 70+ pounds twice before, and gained it all back. So, in July of 2012, I took the drastic step of having a weight-loss surgery. It's called a "Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy". Unlike a lot of the horror stories you may have heard about some weight loss surgeries, this one is very simple. They simply remove a large portion of the stomach. There's no foreign ob
  19. During the last 4 months of ACL rehab, my lifestyle and activities have been hugely limited and dictated by my injury. Feeling like I have a huge list of things that I have to do but take no joy in, and another long list of things I'm not permitted to do has made me feel quite depressed and helpless. So, now that I've reached the magical 12 week point in my rehab and can do a lot more activities, it's time to take back control of my life. Goal 1: Play every day Yeah, I still have to do PT every day, and I still can't do most of the fun things I love, like climbing, acrobatics, playground
  20. I am continuing on my way to a healthier and stronger me, and the basic building blocks for this will remain the same (that's the "old" part): bodyweight trainingyogaworking towards my first real chin-uptracking my food intakeSince I have become a bit bored with the former routine and have also had little to no progress for the past couple of weeks, I have decided to change things a little. So here's what's "new" (or at least different than before): a slightly different BW routine (including leg raises and dips), 3x / weeksquats will remain kneehab squats for the time being - I'm still in phys
