  1. It's been a minute, and the world has changed quite a bit in 2020. I'm here and I'm well. Numbtongue's Language Lessons I'm in an odd place with linguistics, between covid stealing some of my spoons and me being happy in an unprecedented way, language study fell in my priority list over the last 4 months. This challenge is part of finishing 2020 with a daily German news and duolingo habit. 2021 has me adding French again, and slowly working on my Icelandic vocab, but for now this challenge is about daily success with my old workhorse friend, Deutsch. Grimalkin's C
  2. I used to compete at a decent level in powerlifting. After piddling around for the last decade or so and not really training, I have actually taken advantage of the quarantine, working out at home on a regular basis again. I have been a member of this site for a few years now, but have not fully utilized it. I'm hoping to change that now as I pursue consistency. With all that said, I have been putting weekly updates up on my personal blog. https://iamweez.com/category/fitness/ Follow along with me, please. I train alone. I don't mind that so much. But community goes a long wa
  3. Fitness Goals Summary Build a sustainable strength training program that fits into my schedule and uses both powerlifting (with dumbbells and maybe preloaded barbells for now) and bodyweight exercises to build functional strength Achieve my first-in-a-long-time pull-up Achieve my first-in-a-long-time push-up with good form Does not bore me (I'm the type to rewrite my workout regimen every single time I do anything) Peri (or is it circum?) workout nutrition Controlling my hunger on rest days Food tracking for this. The low
  4. I'm coming back after a large hiatus from NF but not such a large hiatus from lifting, although since December 2018 it has not been as frequent or the quality that I wanted. To put it simply, since December 2018 things went to shit! Buuuuuut here we are, closing out 2019, with an application put in for the January 2020 Novice Powerlifting Competition in Perth WA, (my 3rd) hoping to not truly embarass myself, and now having a very solid goal to work towards. A goal to become consistent with training once more, to take that leap and find a coach, to not sweat the small stuff and let
  5. So here we are, after an absence of years, I have come home to where most of it began. Since last treading these boards, we have had success and failure, death and new life, summer, winter, autumn and spring, lost religion found a new one, and just recently cut people from my life who although family were extremely toxic. I am back in here to find my motivation, my mojo, my tribe. I have signed up for my 3rd novice powerlifting meet and need to find some like minded people, as there is no one remotely close in physical proximity that lifts like I did/do/want to. To new beginnings an
  6. So possibly unsurprisingly if you followed my last challenge which was So You Think You Can Danced themed, this time around I'll be inspiring myself by sprinkling Dancing with the Stars (and Strictly) gifs around this challenge . I'll get back to my regularly scheduled nerdery in September XD So let's see, for anyone just joining me the main thing to know is that in the last year I have very seriously gotten into ballroom dancing, mainly latin (so cha cha, rumba, samba, jive, paso doble) but I dabble in smooth/standard (waltz/viennese waltz/foxtrot/tango/quickstep). I
  7. The Countdown to Awesome 181 Days to Oblivion! There is no theme this time round. Just a plain look at my goals and what I am going to do to make them happen. My goal for 2019 is simple. Qualify for OCRWC as a 'Pro'. There are a number of ways to do this but there is one that I think I actually have a real shot at. That is Nuclear Oblivion. Nuclear Oblivion is a lapped OCR of around 14k per lap. It's very obstacle heavy but the course is largely flat and consists of ploughed fields and nicely wide forest paths. The qualification standards for OCRWC is 3 laps f
  8. 12 Week Hypertrophy Quest Quest Goals: 1) Increase Muscle Mass 2) Decrease BF% 3) Increase Strength In All Lifts Overview/Details Each working set should be performed to near failure with 12 being the most reps you should perform and 6 being the lowest. This workout utilizes supersets.Take a 1 minute break between each superset. Supersets are grouped by letter before them. See Quest Objectives for context. Increase weight on each set by at least 5lbs. Increase weight from week to week as well. By the end of the 12 weeks, you should be 10lbs+ stronger in many
  9. I'm rewatching through Boy Meets World right now (thanks Hulu) and I decided to make my theme this challenge based on my very first original TV spirit animal - Topanga Lawrence! There are so many reasons I love her but I think the above two quotes pretty much say it all. If I have a moment of non-motivation during this challenge I'll just ask myself What Would Topanga Do? Be a badass independent woman and do what needs to be done, that's what. Prologue My first love is powerlifting, and have recently-ish started getting back into trying to lift heavy instead of ju
  10. The next 4 weeks are the second installment of my quest to the November UPA powerlifting meet. My third official comp will be the ultimate showcase of my metalbending powers. Mastering metalbending takes discipline of mind and body. Therefore my goals are: 1. Follow the training plan. Do not do more, do not do less (5 days per week). I have a coach who is writing all of my meet prep from now until meet day November 19th. I just finished Week 1 (or Week 15, depending on if you count up or down). It was tough and challenging but in an exciting way and I can tell already this i
  11. Greetings Everyone, I'm not new to NerdFitness but I am new to forum posting. I really enjoyed Steve's book and found myself saying "Yes!" aloud as I read it last year. I was especially inspired by the stories of people who share my love of fantasy and sci fi lit and found creative ways to integrate that into their lives. I sought out the website and the community and in the past six months I've learned a lot. But life seems to have thrown a new challenge at me and I plan to look here for help and support (also I will be joining as a full member soon). Ive been a power
  12. Howdy! My name is Emrys. I'm a 27 year old rebel and brand new to the world of weightlifting. I've spent a long time playing the on-again-off-again game with working out and I want to make it stick this time. I've finally accepted that I absolutely loathe cardio and prefer to get down with strength training. I found NF through furious Google searches and joined because I'm looking to add some structure, get more committed to my fitness, see some gains, and make some friends! I would love to find a meatspace workout buddy. I live in Philly and I'm working out at the Y o
  13. Part 3 of my journey, more of the same... I've been doing a lot of Podcast listening to a Former Navy SEAL turned motivation speaker and he has 2 big points that I love. Discipline = Freedom and extreme ownership of everything you do. I haven't been meeting my goals mainly causing I'm not doing these things. So, this year I'm going to be more goal oriented and harder on myself when I don't make good decisions. I'm also going to get back to basics, evaluate my priorities, and reestablish my discipline. There are lots of things I wan

  15. Well after taking the previous challenge off, although not totally intentionally (re; forgot about it and realized two weeks in)... I am back with two specific goals here. #1 - Reassert dominance over my lifting! What I mean by this is that my coach has me on 4x workouts per week and I have basically had the past month off of lifting, only getting in one or two workouts per day. I must get this worked out and hit those four workouts per week regardless of what else is going on in my life. #2 - Reassert dominance over my eating. While slacking off a little in the gym
  16. Hey all! Name is Dennis and I am fresh off my comeback victory, or respawn, or whatever you want to call it. You can check out that challenge thread here, or you can take this brief rundown... I started lifting with my focus to lose weight, gain strength, and increase all of my major lifts... ie; Squat, Bench, and Deadlift. All three lifts have gone up since starting around 5 weeks ago, and I lost around 8 lbs. So with that behind me the time has come to leave the newbies/returnees section and get back to the Warriors guild, where I belong. Only 2
  17. Considering that my user name is a Doctor Who reference, and that it is one of my most intense nerdoms (I’ve seen almost every episode of the old doctors 1-8 from 1963 and on, even sat through some horrible animated and audio recovered versions of the “lost” episodes) I was shocked to realize that I’ve somehow never done a full up Doctor Who challenge since I joined in 2013?! I think I subconsciously wasn’t ready to do something so close to my heart and have the chance to screw it up, so a few times I’ve considered it and said to myself “next challenge” or “oh I’ll have to put more thought int

  19. The end approaches. After the last 11 ordeals, I have finally passed from the hands of the old master and onto the new. Although survival is not certain, I must persevere to the end. Less dramatic version: I'm starting book 12 of WOT and Brandon Sanderson has finally taken the wheel. The first time I finished the series, there was a year+ gap between me finishing book 11 and then next three books. I'm actually not certain I read book 12 at all. Oh yeah, goalz. Gym stuff - still cutting and expect me to gripe about that. My program is in the signature, b
  20. Back to basics because it's sorely needed... Sit. 1) Make a meal plan for the week. I'm going to try adding some more structure to my nutrition and hit certain macros at certain times, rather than just generally trying to eat an appropriate amount and get enough protein. My boyfriend recently coded up a script to help me figure out how much of the selected foods I need to eat to hit my macros, which will make this a lot easier! Also, if I already have my meals planned out and just follow the plan, it means I don't have to track or count! This is how to meal plan
  21. Hi! I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the nutrition section as it bridges both. Let me know and I'll move it, if the nutrition section is best. I am getting into a new lifting routine which places my session RIGHT before dinner. As with everything, the internet is really split on the whole post workout routine thing. I know that I need to have something protein and fast acting carb dense, perferably within 30 minutes of my session ending. What I'm concerned with is WHAT I should include in my meal. Which is where I'm leaning on my lovely nerd herd.
  22. I’m going to do this right now, before I get swept away with my week and forget about it. Over the last year, I’ve been working on meal prep (and eating it), stretching more, and trying to maintain my outdoor activities. This year I’d like to really nail down these habits. With this, I ultimately want to work on cutting some excess weight. I don’t really know exactly where to put my goal, but I plan to chunk it out 10 pounds at a time to make it seem attainable. As far as life goals, I officially hit my first savings goal. My main focus in 2018 will be turned to payin
  23. For those just tuning in, I'm Raxie! I'm returning to the boards after taking a hiatus for my wedding, honeymoon and Thanksgiving... all of which basically happened in rapid succession. It's been an AMAZING couple of months, but my brain, and my life, are in need of severe decluttering. Confession: I have a ridiculous case of Rangerbrain. I cannot. stop. wanting. to do. ALL. THE. THINGS. If I enjoy something, I try to make it so I can work it into my workout schedule (tried boxing at Camp Nerd Fitness and loved it? TAKE A BOXING CLASS! Decided rucking is great train
  24. Hello, folks. I am Ava and this is my first challenge (sort of) so I'll keep it short. I am a 27 year old from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who loves gaming, lifting heavy things and her cats. I run an e-commerce store so I am always interested in all things digital marketing and etc. I am getting married next year (yay!) so my two Main Quests for now are to look great in my wedding photos (lose weight, go back to having a fitness routine and all that jazz) AND to become more financially stable (save and earn more money). So for this challenge my go
  25. So, I'm putting this up now because I'll be out of town tomorrow & Friday, then Saturday will be doing a "party ride" and that will likely result in me being intoxicated and / or passing out by 6pm. I'd like to start this challenge on Sunday, so figured I'd get a jump on figuring it out now. Also I have more than 4 goals, because I'm basically building on habits that I've been working on over the last year but for whatever reason if I don't list it as a goal, I'm likely to just blow it off. As with the last challenge, one of the big things I'm trying to do is keep myself movin
