  1. These two delight in a lack of progress, in maintaining the mental status quo, and possibly backsliding if they can make it work. They've decided to combine efforts and come for me just when I want to advance some skills and when I need to focus on continuing education. The Distraxolotl- It is a cute little critter who whispers to unwary people that 'all the things' deserve attention, and that 'you can finish later' but 'later' is filled with another thing. He offers 'false' progress through acquiring lots of new skills without actually advancing in any current skills. He's come for me just as I've finished two major goals and am drawn in several directions by a few things I've had in the back of my mind. The Ignoraminx- A wily animal that sneaks around the edges of thought. It gently sings the alluring suggestion that learning is hard work and unnecessary. It values idling in what you already know and convincing its victim that education efforts are pointless. Maybe just give up that thing that requires education? That sounds easier. Thankfully I recognized its song in time. And it may have backfired! Its mindless melody reminded me that I have an impending deadline for continuing education. We've met the insidious creatures, on to the plan for battling them. I have a shiny new point system that I've outlined in my battle log. This is my first attempt applying it. Here we go! -to fight the Distraxolotl I need to pick and focus on specific tasks that will either use (up) supplies I have, advance current skills, or learn new but related skills. 3 pts per day/ 4 days per week = 12 pts wkly The battle plan is: finish the crazy yarn project for Lyn finish the dragonwing shawl I've drooled over for years and finally started either start learning Tunisian crochet to continue my on-going goal to convince knitters that crochet isn't just granny squares, or pick my next knit skill to learn and a project to go with it. But! only if I'm having success against the Ignoraminx. -elude the Ignoraminx by making progress on the massage CEUs I need by the end of April (this can take two challenges to actually complete if needed) and return to the studying I need to do for my job (to meet other personal goals) 2 pts per day/ 4 days per week = 8 pts wkly The battle plan is: make significant headway on massage ceus. subtasks are: look up exact hour needs and dates for AMTA and state license double check what I've already done return to learning difference in sewing machines by: returning to cbt work using machines at work to do the learning tasks from each ^cbt^ -ongoing lesser goal for the challenge are 1 pt per day/ 4 days per week = 4 pts wkly each strength training - finish current DB program then return to my own pull up focuses plan, if the weather allows me to play outside yet. 4 pts wkly pick a household task daily. Any sort of task; cleaning, meal planning, making it more homey (ie painting etc), whatever is needful 4 pts wkly (hey look! different levels of houses!) Points basic breakdown total 28 pts/ week. 140 per challenge bonus point is 1 pt per extra day of any above.
  2. Welcome everybody! I'm a 26-year-old British guy who likes gymnastics, climbing, calisthenics, circus, weightlifting, ... and generally try to do too much. Last August I quit my job as a software engineer to go travelling around the world, volunteering for charities, learning new skills, and generally chasing excitement Brief summary of my journey since starting at Nerd Fitness: Jan 2014: joined the forums and planned to learn backflips outdoors by February. Hahaha that did not happen, but gymnastics and weightlifting did Jul 2014: reached 10 seconds for handstands and recorded my progress [video] Oct 2014: bought gymnastics rings and went through a phase of training lots with these Aug 2015: reached so far my peak in gymnastics and made a compilation [video] in the Summer Aug 2015: moved house and got lazy Challenged with the Warriors and I don't think I even made it to a gym haha Jan 2016: decided that I needed more excitement and that in 2016 I was going to get it Aug 2016: quit my job and backpacked around Slovenia and Eastern Europe Sep 2016: competed in the Mental Calculation World Cup in Germany Oct 2016: studied Spanish in a language school in Valencia Nov 2016: competed at Memoriad in Las Vegas. Flew to Nicaragua to volunteer as a volcano tour guide for 3 months Feb 2017: backpacked around Nicaragua and Guatemala - both really nice destinations May 2017: spent a month in Barcelona learning more Latin dancing and learning to how to create websites - currently working on HyperBirthday Jun 2017: visited Edinburgh and continued working on projects I like colour-coding things This month I'm going to Oxford (UK) to teach an Engineering course to some pre-University students, and should have plenty of time to work on other projects My last sort-of challenge in Edinburgh was overly negative - "do these things otherwise you lose lots of points!" - and I respond better to more positive challenges, so this time I'll just be accumulating points. And using overly-complicated challenge scoring systems Goal #1: be prolific: I'm always impressed and astonished at NF'ers like Raptron who seem to do crazy amounts of stuff every day. Like 2 workouts, 3 social engagements, a full-time job, baked a cake, read everything on NF and caught a plane. With her bare hands. Meanwhile sometimes all I've done is eaten 4 bowls of cereal and refreshed Facebook 30 times. I'm getting better, but I'm not in the same league as Raptron yet, so I'm going to keep working. Also hai Raptron So generally, this challenge I'm going to focus on doing lots of interesting things and not wasting my time. For the first 25 days I'll get points for the following: fitness work: max 3 (e.g. if I do a serious session of something, that would get me 2) social activities: max 3 (course-based fun activities count) sleep early: max 2 (before 0000: 2 points; before 0030: 1 point) eat well: max 2 good tutor: max 2 don't waste time: max 2 get work done: max 6 (1 per full hour) That's 20 points per day, and I think realistically 15+ would be an excellently productive day. Total: 500 points. Goal #2: fitness goals: here's that thing where I make a list of fitness goals and fail to accomplish any of them 10 points per achievement. There will be 20, but some get added later when I see what equipment is available in Oxford. Total: 200 points. Also I'm open to suggestions for goals! 8 ring dips 12 ring dips 12 ring pull-ups 3 clean ring muscle-ups pretty au batido 7-second static handstand 10-second static handstand 20-second walking handstand 25-second walking handstand clockwise circle walk in handstand consecutive opposite circle walks in handstand complete figure-of-8 handstand walk 30 push-ups 40 push-ups go climbing play a new sport ab workout video #1 ab workout video #2 ab workout video #3 sightseeing run Goal #3: productive goals: basically the important items from my to-do list. Total: 300 points. project: fix HyperBirthday on mobile (15 points) project: implement hyperbirthday.com/result/<date> framework (30 points) project: add SEO blog post to HyperBirthday (15 points) project: add another blog post to HyperBirthday [#2] (10 points) project: add another blog post to HyperBirthday [#3] (5 points) project: add another blog post to HyperBirthday [#4] (5 points) project: add full moon counter to HyperBirthday (20 points) project: TimeGhost to HyperBirthday (20 points) mind sports: create reusable presentation (20 points) mind sports: detailed strategy for names & faces event (5 points) mind sports: detailed strategy for ordered pictures event (5 points) mind sports: detailed strategy for arbitrary nouns event (5 points) mind sports: trial MSO calculation paper (15 points) piano: finish composing the intro/verse for Sahara (5 points) piano: compose the instrumental section for Sahara (20 points) piano: write manuscript for Sahara (15 points) dance: create a salsa/bachata routine and use it (20 points) fitness: create two set workouts for this challenge and do both (20 points) travel: some progress towards September plans (week 0) (5 points) travel: some progress towards September plans (week 1) (5 points) travel: some progress towards September plans (week 2) (5 points) travel: some progress towards September plans (week 3) (5 points) travel: have travel/life plans until Sept 30th (10 points) travel: have travel/life plans until Nov 15th (10 points) travel: have travel/life plans until Dec 31st (10 points) So that's 1000 points in total. I think 200 will be very easy and 800 almost impossible, so after 200, every 60 points gives me another stat point. Good luck everyone!
  3. Four themes, 100 points. Carrying on from last challenge, I'll be sticking to the points format. I've tweaked things a little bit to make some areas more challenging and to bring up performance in weaker areas. The main difference is that I'm going to be aiming to log everything I eat/drink in a notebook rather than posting main meals on here. This will be more beneficial for tracking, and forces me to focus on other tasks to earn points. I'm also doing weekly themes! Completing the criteria for each week will earn extra points. The goal is to inject a little bit of extra skill work during the week. Week 1 - Ninja Week: Practice rolls/cartwheels for at least 5 minutes, four times this week. +3 points. Week 2 - Jedi Week: Practice handstands for at least 5 minutes, four times this week. +3 points. Week 3 - Spider-man Week: Practice grip training (for climbing buildings, of course) for 5 minutes, four times this week. +3 points. Week 4 - Assassin Week: Run a mile for time, three times this week. +3 points. + Points Do a workout. +1 point. Brush the dog's teeth. +1 point. Complete an adulting task. +1 point. Bonus Adulting Tasks. - These will be worth 1 point for adulting in addition to their individual point values. Transfer money into my (currently unused) high interest savings account. +1 point. Set up a direct debit or payment line to that account from my main account. +2 points. Find (and move to) a new mobile data plan. +2 points. Fill in the small hole in bedroom wall. +2 points. Fix broken guitar hanger. +2 points. Complete food log for the day. +1 point. Be out of bed before 7:30 AM. +2 points. Job search, at least 20 minutes. +2 points. Finish reading a book. +2 points. Complete one of my major fitness goals. +5 points. - Points Going a day without doing any mobility. -1 point. Staying in bed past 9AM. -1 point. Go a whole week without brushing the dog's teeth. -3 points. Do not fill in food log. -1 point. Major Fitness Goals. Be able to do 3 consecutive ring dips. 2x3 ring dips 4x5 chinups. Unassisted shrimp squat. Sub 8 minute mile. Be able to do a clean parkour roll.
  4. This time I'll be mixing up my challenge format and doing a points challenge! I feel this will be more beneficial to me these days than my usual "do these 4-5 things" challenges. I eventually want my challenges to be a little more freeform and game like now that fitness is pretty much a major part of my life. Some things will earn me points, others will lose them (duh). The goal this month is 100 points. I have no idea if this is a good total, so it may change after week 1 when I have a better understanding. + Points Do a strength training workout. +1 point. Do a cardio/conditioning workout. +1 point. Brush the dog's teeth. +1 point. Complete an adulting task. +1 point. Bonus Adulting Tasks. - These will be worth 1 point for adulting in addition to their individual point values. Transfer money into my (currently unused) high interest savings account. +1 point. Set up a direct debit or payment line to that account from my main account. +2 points. Find (and move to) a new mobile data plan. +2 points. Fill in the small hole in bedroom wall. +2 points. Adjust my Nest Pension payment plan. +1 point. +2 points if doing so involves making a phone call. Fit new rear windscreen wiper blade on my car, +1 point. Eat a healthy meal. +1 point. Be out of bed before 7:30 AM. +2 points. This will be tough, if it happens once I'll be happy. Job search, at least 20 minutes. +2 points. Finish reading a book. +2 points. Complete one of my major fitness goals. +5 points. - Points Going a day without doing any mobility. -1 point. Staying in bed past 9AM. -1 point. Go a whole week without brushing the dog's teeth. -3 points. Major Fitness Goals. Be able to do 2 consecutive ring dips. Be able to do 3 consecutive ring dips. 4x5 chinups. Unassisted shrimp squat. Sub 10 minute mile. Be able to do a cartwheel. Pointless Star Wars gif just for fun. Motivation or something..
  5. Hi everybody. Last challenge, I injured my knee slightly. Not a serious injury, but I'm paranoid about it since every male member of my family has knee problems. Normally, I'm a Aragorn sort-of guy, but Boromir says it pretty well: So, my challenge is pretty similar, but with the following changes: Focus on building up muscles around my knees, so I can get back to bodyweight squats. So, a lot of bridges for the back leg muscles, and supported wall squats for the front leg muscles. Spend evening time doing mobility. Thanks to @Elastigirl, I learned about Kelly Starrett's book Deskbound, which has been useful to me. My plan is to spend the first two weeks practicing the bracing sequence, and other things for the first two weeks. The second two weeks, I will do the Mobility Prescriptions (one a day for two weeks). Make my point system a little less fiddly - like most nerds, I often build overly complex systems. The points do help me, since I get into an all-or-nothing thinking mode otherwise. However, my last challenge looked like an old Pac-Man game. So, my points are a little simpler, and rather than put the entire challenge under the spoiler tag each time, I'm going to put it up here one time, and then focus on communication. The details of the challenge are below the spoiler tag. I will consider 253 points a success, 282 good, and 317 excellent. 352 points maximum. As a reward, if I get a good score, I'm going to commit to a private lesson with a Yoga instructor that Ms. Moros recommends. I'll have to come up with "good" and "excellent" rewards.
  6. Hello Everybody, My challenge this time is similar to my last ones, except for the following differences: A ranger is adaptable - so instead of my all-or-nothing attitude, I will go to a point system. All-or-nothing is not a good strategy for me, and I wanted to make this more gamelike. I will focus on bodyweight exercises, mobility and some yoga. I will figure out rewards for achieving certain points. There are 570 points for each week (2280 if I do everything), and I will consider a success if I get 1600 points. 1800 points is good, and 2100 points is excellent. If I achieve 1600 points, I am finally getting my exercise mace. I will add some stuff on if I get more than 1600. Details are below the spoiler:
