  4. Hello! It looks like the Druids haven't had a little cabin getaway in a few challenge cycles - let's use this space to get to know each other, ask questions, share milestones, post gifs, and just generally hang out. I'll start. Hi, I'm Darkfoxx - previously an Ambassador with the Rangers - and this is my 59th challenge cycle on the NF Forums. I'm currently working to rebuild my yoga practice, while I continually come to grips with the lack of consistent schedule in my life. I can't wait to get to know you all!
  5. Good morning! So I finally decided to commit to living a better life. This means keeping a cleaner house, creating meal plans that can feed two adults, and two toddlers while still packing big nutrition and enough calories to fuel our shenanigans, and completely restructuring how we think so as to be productive to our goals instead of undermining. I hope that in joining this community that I can get some advice from other like-minded folks. So my first questions for my fellow Rebels are as follows: 1.) As a half-time online college student and mother is it r
  6. Welcome to the new Challenge! Stellakin and I decided that there was a lack of anywhere that we Rebels could gather together, so we decided to resurrect the Juice Bar. Anything belongs in this thread, any question, encouragment, motivation, adorable gif, etc. Feel free to make yourselves comfortable here as we approach the middle of Week 0, and begin gearing up for the Challenge! We're glad to see you here and begin this new start together!
  7. Hey y'all, so glad to be here! I found this site after a post about the camp last week, and I feel like I've found my people. I'm a major book nerd. I have zero eye/hand coordination for gaming, and am not very good at the maths, but if you want to talk books/authors/cats, I'm your girl! I've already had two NF people friend me on FB, and I feel so loved! I've been leveling up with fitness for over a year, after leaving the comfort of my couch! I'm very attracted to the baby-steps philosophy that NF promotes, and I'm really having fun with the idea of going on quests! At the same t
  8. Hey Rebels Welcome to the Rebel Stronghold You can find all types of things to do and ask each other questions, celebrate wins, and just have some fun chatting about whatever you choose. Rules are simple: Be respectful, that is all. We're all battling the dark side and their cookies are hjard to resist. But we will prevail. Each day will be better than before. We will learn and grow wise. We will laugh and cry without shame. We will live! What say you??? gifs and such happily welcomed
  9. Dear new-comers to yoga, Hello! I am a soon-to-be certified yoga instructor; my official license comes at the end of the month. My styles is based on cultivating complete body+mind awareness and increased strength, flexibility, stamina, and focus. Many of my routines alternate and often combine elements of deep muscular restorative, yin yoga and strengthening, flow-based asana. If you have any questions about yoga, whether you are just starting out or even stuck in a yogic rut, come on over and give me a message! I want to help out as many people as I can; you DON'T have to be flexible to
  10. Hello fellow rebels! I’ve been visiting the NF website for over a year and I have preached it to many people (specialy the “Beginner body weight work outâ€. But, like many others, I sometimes fall back into old habits and I haven’t fully achieved my goals yet. Thus, I decided to join the community and today is my first step: starting this forum post! So here are my goals and my strategy on how to achieve it. Feedback is more than welcomed! Goal: Reduce weight (fat) by 5kg whilst losing body fat, not muscle Strategy: Focus on healthy clean eating with portion control and minimum “trea
  11. I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong spot. Anyway, has anyone heard of MovNat.com? Looks like it meets rebel standards. I was wondering if anyone in the Nerd Fitness community has tried it before. Thanks!!
  12. So, I'm 30 (about to turn 31) and, as seems inevitable these days, all of my college friends have started running (and posting updates on Facebook, etc. about their runs and how happy they are about how fit they're getting). I'm in pretty good shape (6'0", 175 lbs), but I'd like to lose about 2" off my waist and hips, which usually correlates to about 7-10 lbs of "weight loss". Until about 6 months ago (when I moved across the country for a job), I had been lifting weights regularly (2-3 times per week, for about 8 months) and doing Pilates (once a week, for about two years). But I wasn't r
  13. Hello all, I am a 20 year old FPS and ex RPG player. I have let go of myself over the last couple of years though I did quit smoking cancer sticks I still have not got back on the exercise wheel and now I have hit 200 lbs which I couldn't believe. I have been wanting to get into shape but I completely lack the motivation. Until now! I just happened to stumble on an article about this site and I think it is the best idea ever, make exercise into a RPG. I don't really know how to explain it but this is honestly going to help me so much, making life into an RPG were you level up for getting healt
  14. Preface: Sorry that this post is so long. I have a tendency to be very thorough I guess under the guise, "if you provide half the information/truth, you will only get half the help." Thanks for being patient in advance. So... I'm (obviously) new to this challenge thing as well as NF in general. I'm really excited to find something like this because I've been toying around with the idea of getting in shape for the last eight years or so but my hesitation has always been in actually going to a gym and working out around other people. I'm pretty self conscious. I guess my ultimate goal is to fe
  15. Hello. I've been looking around at different message boards and this one seemed to have the most favorable mix of knowedgable and not-scary. Physical fitness is weird for me. I've always been somewhat aware of it, but never really engaged in it, so it's like when you can follow a conversation but don't know enough to contribute to it. Anyway, I'm 28 years of age, about 5'8" and used to hover around 135lbs for my entire adult life until I took a somewhat strenuous job ten months ago and dropped down to 123lbs. I look pretty under-weight. I certainly sort of feel it and could overall use an incr
  16. Hi there! Ok so my routine does not really consist of muscle building but im geared to that(i still do my cardio and watch my diet). Lately though my friends and I have been arguing on this topic, with one side saying that building muscle for muscle is bs, while the other saying that fat people should build muscle to gain more metabolism=more fat loss. Im stuck at between and im confused here, so could someone help me out?
  17. Hey I don't attend a Box of anything, but I have a teeny interest in crossfit, so I have an app with the WOD and sometimes I do them. But I have some questions! 1. Today's 130711 crossfit total, back squat shoulder press deadlift. Is this any weight? Max weight? What? And is this one that is AMRAP? 2. Tuesday 130709 Diane 21-15-9 225lbs deadlift, hand stand pushups. Post time... Does everyone do this? What if you can't do the weight listed? That's all at the moment, been too busy to do them lately but each day I realise I have too many questions, I did want to do today's though, but I don't
  18. I really want to start training in parkour, but I am flat footed so arches in running and tennis shoes are very painful to me. How much does running and tennis shoes improve parkour compared to skateboard shoes? I have tried seeing a foot doctor (can't remember the name for now) but nothing has worked. I am doomed to eternal flat footedness!
  19. Anyone out there using EPIC in the healthcare industry? Our hospital is going to embark on this journey within the next two years and I have questions... Biggest (at this time) is what kind of questions are on the Assessment Test?
  20. Two quick questions--I don't know if this is really where should ask them, but I didn't really know where else I could. 1) What are the ranks? above the profile pictures whenever people post? Newbie, Rebel, Renegade, Recruit, etc. And how do you get promoted from one to another? 2) What are the dots underneath the profile picture? Thanks!!

    If this is elsewhere then please direct me. I have been doing 85% paleo since last Sept and really enjoy not crashing all the time and feeling full without feeling yucky. Also, I am noticing that I am building muscle in areas, like my abs, that is starting to look good. But I am a little concerned about my chest area. My ribs are starting to really show. Is this normal? Do I need to start working on my chest in strength and weight training? The rest of me is starting to look good except for this one area. If I do need to focus on my chest for a while, what exercises are recommended?
