  1. Let's go back to January 2019. I weight 94.6 kilo and getting heavier. So it was time for a change. I ate less, mostly cutting out snacks and lost weight. 1st of July I weight 92.1 kilo. I had been lower, but the last two months was gaining again. Also I wasn't really happy with the progress anyway. I attempted IIFYM and pledge to do that for July. However as I had to eat more, I got more and more hungry. (How's that for a twist, eating more made me more hungry and miserable). Come August my BF and I did a lot of research and were ready to take on the next challenge.
  2. Hello all! Sliding into the challenge a week late, again. A lot has happened in the past 3 weeks: between going to a wedding, packing up, moving, buying and building furniture, work, and all sorts of stuff, I didn't really plan out a challenge until like... yesterday. The good: I am about 95% moved into my new apartment! There are some small things that I need to get from my parents' house still, kitchen stuff, mostly. (My roommate and I don't have a microwave, so I'm bringing my old university one back with me!) I'm keeping up with my mobility training as well as my Po
  3. Hey, I'm Daniel and if you haven't followed me before, my standard intro is in the spoiler: My newest destination in my nomadic life is Montenegro, the beautiful ex-Yugoslav country of 620,000 people. Picture in the spoiler of the area I'm staying My plan while I'm here is to do two things: learn enough Machine Learning techniques to get a respectable performance in a data science competition hosted by Kaggle.com do lots of Assassin fitness Goal #1: productive routine: some of the 16 days I'll be on day trips to other places, but
  4. The seas are finally calming down after a hectic few weeks, and it should be smooth sailing for now! I am really lazy to set up a new challenge, though, so I'm going to keep it simple. #1 Practice Mindfulness I will find small, simple, and concrete ways to include mindfulness in my days. The challenge is to find one new thing to practice every week, and by the end of the challenge, I will have 4 new tools in my toolbox. I will probably get the tools from my university's stress management course Week 1 Deal with the annoying coworker by shifting m
  5. Xena

    Xena Progresses

    In case you are new to my thread, my main deal is distance running. This time around, I'm just trying to slog through some base miles in these winter months. I'll be traveling in early Jan, so I'm going to use the first week to just do what I can and test out a couple goals (see below). Most of them will start on Mon Jan 8 and run 4 weeks. 1. Run 100 miles. I'm going to try to do the "Winter Warrior Challenge" again this year, running outside at least 3 miles every day. I might run into some roadblocks early in the month with travel, so I'm not making that an official NF challenge
  6. I have lots of good reasons to go into the Navy: I want to see the world, I want to be able to call myself a veteran, I want to get an edge applying for federal jobs, and I want help paying for a masters of social work and to take spanish classes. I've been a retail pharmacy tech for 5 years and have grown to really, really, REALLY hate the field, mostly because of the poor pay and instability. Things will be running smoothly, then all of the sudden, I'll get cut to 10 hours a week and I have to job hop. I often work clopenings, so I get anywhere from only 2 to 12 hours a sleep in a night and
  7. Main Wolverine’s goal: being The Wolverine. Fight. Train. Expose yourself to cold. Eat like a horse. Breath. New stuff Handstands!
  8. Ensi

    Ensi - Love!!!

    Helloooo there!! My third challenge as an Assassin begins Last challenge was slightly underwhelming, yet overwhelming. I was physically sick, then itsy bitsy depressed, and now I'm ready to start a new little chapter in my life. I created the Fox-Box during the last challenge: it's a box with journals, stickers, and all sorts of items that make me feel positive. I also found a base for my self-therapy: a combination of logotherapy and working on my life traps. As I'm writing this, I'm feeling very hopeful about the future, and leaving the past behind seems easier with all the poss
  9. There’s absolutely no need to painfully inject adamantium into your body to get that beautiful, totally shiny, unbreakable adamantium skeleton you’ve been dreaming of, you can build it yourself in the comfort of your own home… yes, you can, really, no pain. Well, some pain may be involved. But not much… How much, do you ask? Hmmm, do you see that barrel full of icy water, my dear? Just get in and we’ll talk… Main goal. Complete the Wim Hof course, so as to become The Wolverine. Starting the challenge at week 5 of the course – it doesn’t seem to involve moving to Svalbar
  10. Helloooo, Assassins!! I’m Ensi, and this is my first challenge in the Assassins squad. You can read more about my past in my battle log, but for now, let’s focus on where I am, and where I’m going. I’m recovering from disordered eating that was caused by my feelings of worthlessness. Eating was basically just an obstacle course I had to get right every day, and I was avoiding carbs with a very vague plan (“as little as possible is good”). I’m currently practicing intuitive eating: I respect my body and my hunger, and find other ways to deal with my feelings. I don’t count macros or
  11. As @deftona said in her new challenge, it is about seeing just how much progress I can make in such a short time frame. I found this very inspiring the moment I read it, and decided to go for it too. Then, this challenge is about making the most of the summer and working hard to improve myself. There is maintenance: everyday meditation, eating lots of freggies, daily music practice. There is consolidation and improvement: cross country run, parallettes and floor work, self-defence, sink push-ups. There is novelty: stop visiting my favourite news site to stop being so angry
  12. I finally got there. It's taken about 3 months but I just got 1 set of 10 push-ups !!!
  13. This is not a themed challenge. They have their place, and I will probably return to them in time, but this one is about self-discovery just as much as self-improvement. And for that, I think I need to take a step back from themes, or creating goals with characters like Aragorn in mind. I don’t wish to sound self-centred, but I do wish to increase my self-confidence, self-believe and self-worth. Goal the First: A healthy body to nourish a healthy mind - Two Stronglifts workouts a week. Include assistance work like push ups and planks - One dedicated bo
  14. For those I haven't met yet, I used to work at sea, exploring weird places. Now I don't, though I still do marine sciency things for a living. It's been a big change for me. I'm trying to cope. This challenge finds me reaching for a new plane in my training*. I'm running in a half-marathon during week zero, and I logged a lot of miles during the last two challenges to prepare. After the race, I want to keep up with the running enough to keep building endurance, but I also want to scale it back a bit so I can focus more on other things – namely improving flexibility and strength. To
  15. Hello all, Somehow I didn't quite make the last challenge <hangs head in shame>. I did my first half-marathon on 8 May and, whilst I have certainly run and trained since then, it's all been a bit unfocused. Time to home in on my goals with surgical precision again! This time last year, when I had yet to discover NF, one of my key goals was to complete a half-marathon, and now I've done that, thanks in no small measure to you lot. My main other goal is to be able to deadlift my own body weight (currently about 57kg). I'm a bit skeptical about this but am going to give it a t
  16. I'm terrible with challenge themes. I love what other people come up with, and admire their creativity, but I'm never happy with my own ones. Anyway, straight to the point: My goals for this month: Goal #1: Food Log For this challenge, I'm not setting up any specific restrictions because my mentality has changed since I slayed the demons from my past (AKA visited my old university as some of you might remember from last month). I used to be a binge-eater. Then I stopped binging, but I was still addicted to junk food (sugary things, to be specific). Last month I promise

  18. Gonna keep it simpler for this one. I'm back at sea for I don't know how much longer yet, and I've got other areas of life that need more attention right now. Run 30 maintenance miles. Yep, that's all. I don't have any races to train for at present. I don't know where I'll be besides this boat or, ocassionally, Dutch Harbor, Alaska. I just can't look forward to the treadmill right now. So, I'll just do a little bit as I feel like it, or when I get the opportunity to get outside. Push, Pull 720 Push-ups 24 Pull-ups This is the same as the last couple challenges f
  19. Main Quest: My main quest for this four weeks is to solidify my daily habits/routines. A couple of things have thrown them off and it's making it difficult to get everything done. I've been keeping up with my challenge quests, but a lot of the typical household stuff isn't getting done. Or if it does get done, I end the day feeling cranky and exhausted. I spent the last week of the last challenge really concentrating on the routines and things were a lot better. I want to get everything back into being a habit and then I'll work on adding/increasing/changing my exercise or diet goals. Quest
  20. Hello everyone!! Last challenge I came back from a little break and rocked it the first three weeks. Then I got a cold. A big, bad cold, which tried to throw me off my path with bone-rattling cough-attacks and and make me lose my breath by stuffing my raspiratory system with evil, clingy balls of snot. But, no more!!! I'm recovering, gaining back my strength and will continue on the path I have chosen, no matter what kind of bacteria and viruses nature throws at me. Mwaahahahaha!!! ... sorry... got a bit distracted there. Anyways, the thing is, last challenge went great and I think I will
  21. Now that we have prepared for the worst, I'm going to try to avoid it! Last month was my first challenge back and it was clear that I was out of the habit of...well basically everything. I'm stuck at home without a gym membership, which is a new situation for me, so I need to revamp my fitness (and life) habits. Quest 1: Workout 3 times a week. Easy to say, harder to accomplish. Doesn't matter what it is, I just have to get off my butt and do it. Hopefully this will be a MWF thing. Let's get serious [+2 STA] Quest 2: Complete the Bloglates 30 Days to Splits progression. It looks like
  22. Hello, I am SaltyDragon, a friendly sea-going serpentine creature who just completed his first challenge in December. After reading lots of challenges in lots of guilds – along with much indecisiveness – I have decided to post my next challenge here with the Scouts. Many of you seem to be somewhat like minded with me and share many common goals, as well, so I hope that I can fit in here! For this, my second challenge, my theme is "embracing the weather." I recently learned of a winter challenge event (unrelated to NF) where the objective is to get outside and participate in some kin
  23. 10 proper form push-ups. Soooo happy!
  24. It’s been a little while, but I’m back! Last year, I hit a few of my goals (100 kilo dead lift, stringing together double-unders…), but missed others. I have yet to hit a #200 back squat, didn’t finish my Toastmaster’s CC, and can’t do a muscle up. So, here is my revised list for the next year: Muscle up, #200 Back Squat, get in half-marathon condition (by August), and defeat Cindy. The push-ups in Cindy destroyed me a few weeks ago, and when I looked up my time from a year ago I saw that they were my weakness then too. I’m gonna beat my weaknesses! Also, I want to get lean t
  25. Hello all! I'm back! I missed not having my insane assassins around for December, and I kinda failed at keeping a battle log, partially due to moving stuff meaning less exercise happened and partially due to not having the full-on guild camaraderie. And I love me some mini challenges! So I'm getting back to basics with this challenge, and bringing back some quests from past challenges. Also going with a classic theme: Liz Lemon gifs. 1. Some form of exercise 3 days a week, plus 1 day of additional stretching: Ever since moving, I don't have a gym membership and it's cold outside, so I've h
