  1. In the last challenge I did one thing. Eat more veggies. In the challenge before that I did one thing. Track food. In this challenge I am going to continue to to these two things. That is it. I'm currently on crutches and will be for a couple more weeks, physical therapy is happening but exercise other than that is not allowed. So I am going to focus on the basics until I get my doctor's approval to do more. <sigh> Its hard to be good and not run out and exercise right now. I am being good.
  2. Hot Girl Summer #1 Pony As always, Ginuwine bringing the certified sex jamz. This challenge marks the first of a three part series where I return to my fighting weight over the course of this summer! I have gained a lot of weight, particularly in the last 6 months when I couldn’t do anything except lie down but I am hoping at some point during the next three challenges I’ll be in a position to return to training because the alternative is unthinkable so let’s progress with optimism in our hearts! The reason this challenge is “Po
  3. I've not been happy with my weight or my activity level lately. This is not about body image, I can see many positive things about my appearance. This is about function. I have enough extra weight around my waist that it pushes on my diaphragm when I bend over and makes it hard to breathe. I don't like that. I have enough extra weight that makes it harder and more tiring to move. I don't like that. I'm not moving as much as i used to, and it negatively affects mood and energy levels, I don't like that. What I do have is this amazing community, and the knowledge that the only way to
  4. Ah, it feels good to be back. As usual my major regret is not returning sooner, but I also know that coming back before I was ready would've been worse than waiting. At any rate, that's all behind with nothing but good times (DOMS notwithstanding) ahead. If you're at all curious about where I went when I fell off Planet NF then please check out the post in my log: https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/107485-whats-great-for-a-snack-and-fits-on-your-back/&do=findComment&comment=2688089. tl;dr is that life is hard and I only had enough energy for non-fitnessy
  5. After getting myself re-oriented in the last challenge (rather, the last week), I've got a little bit better sense of what's been missing and where to direct my energies. Part of the problem with devoting 90% of my attention to "job stuff" is that other stuff in my life falls by the wayside. I chatted briefly with my former accounting professor last week, and she reminded me that the issue with "big goals" like passing the CPA or losing a ton of weight or whatever is that you get this "high" from having busted your ass all those months / years, and then, once you're done, there's a crash where
  6. After so many years of doing variations on the same theme, this challenge is finally going to be something new for me. All of my time with NF thus far has been me focused on meeting the physical requirements for a job with the police. My belief in that possibility has waxed and waned over the years, but that was always my main goal. As I've gotten older, I've felt growing pressure to get my life going (I've been working low paying, dead-end jobs for over 20 years, and been living in my parents' basement for most of that time, and I'd like to be a real adult someday). That pressure
  7. As per usual, I'm like a million years late on the pop culture anything, but I am really enjoying The Umbrella Academy, so I'm basing my challenge on some of the different characters. Allison: Allison's main power is her words, so I will be trying to write for at least 30 minutes twice a week. Luther: Luther's whole shtick is strength, so I will be doing 2 strength workouts a week Diego: Diego can make anything deadly. He is precise and practiced, so I will eat only as many as 1800 calories a day Klaus: Klaus does lots of drugs for
  8. How about that for illiteration? My last few challenges have been extremely helpful to push me to my goals, but I do have a tendency to go overboard just a tiny bit on the scope of them. So for this challenge I am going to take a ever so small step back from the complicated challenge and go back to the simple stuff. Goal #1 - "Meal Prep" So I know a lot of people view meal prep as this huge undertaking of making every meal for the week in one go and freezing it. That's not really my goal this challenge. Instead I want to harken back to a previous challenge of bring
  9. "What's the smallest task I could do to still feel like I'm doing something for this goal?" -@NeverThatBored "I'm going to have Present Qbert do things now instead of saving them for Future Qbert to make my life easier" -Qbert My goals haven't really changed but I'm going to try framing this challenge differently. I know the things I need to do daily to reach my goals but sometimes life just gets in the way of meeting the goals all the time. Meeting every goal every day just isn't practical but there's no good place to draw the line. It's more impor
  10. Alliance with who, I hear you asking? Well, you, of course! And also my doctors, husband, teachers, new co-workers, new boss, local librarian, probably the baristas at my favorite coffee shop that just reopened... This summer for me is really the pinnacle of the idea that no man is an island - with all the transitions and new tasks going on, I'm going to be depending on the people around me more than ever: One grad school semester just ended, but a new one is starting soon (May 17th) and I'm taking twice as many credit hours as usual so I can get sta
  11. it's starting to get hot here So for this adventure I really want to prep hard for one of my 2021 goals, to do a hard 75. The only problem with tackling this right now is I have 24 days until I trailer the boat for a week in the keys on the water. There is no way I am not enjoying drinks in the keys while in or out of the boat for a week. So I figure I will practice with my remaining days. For those that do not know what a Hard 75 is, please see below picture. Because this is not a real Hard 75 I am modifying one thing. I will read fiction or non fiction. T
  12. Only 2 goals this challenge! Run Never drink (alcoholic beverages) alone Well that's cheating! So i need rules: - Only drink when there is someone over that is also having an alcoholic beverage (excluding the wife cause she would kill me) - Run: 3 times a week minimum, 35K per week minimum
  13. Last challenge taught me that I need to be more flexible with my goals and with myself. Between two jobs, with changing hours and responsibilities, and the mental illness double whammy of depression and anxiety it’s not always possible for me to stick to a rigid challenge structure. However, I think it’s very important to keep striving for small improvements especially when the large ones seem out of reach. After all - anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly. As such I’ve changed up this week's challenge. For each of my three goals (workout, nutrition, mindset) I have to ea
  14. Yes really, but not like that. Also, I think I'm now out of "This is the Way" puns, so next challenge is going to have a different sort of title. I'm about 2 weeks out from my big move. So this challenge is going to be 2 weeks of absolute insanity as we try to finish packing and everything that needs to happen, followed by a week or so of driving across the country, about 2 weeks of "camping" in the apartment, and then our stuff getting delivered just before the end of the challenge. And in the midst of all that, I'm trying to keep my diet mostly aligned with the B
  15. I'm not sure how this challenge is going to go. I've been battling down my perfectionism, and I've let go of a lot over the years. But I still want to be making some kind of progress. So many days I just don't have time to do anything for myself. All this week I have to cover classes for an instructor who's become sick, so I can't go home at lunch and exercise. There's no time to do it in the evenings because of family obligations. I can't get up any earlier in the morning or I'm a zombie all day. Do you know why dad bod is a thing? Because we all don't have time to do anythin
  16. I'm back to doing a running challenge! This week was supposed to be the first week of a 20 week long training plan for the Great East Run half-marathon (I had a deferred entry after last year's was cancelled due to the pandemic), but no sooner has I posted about it on Facebook then I got an email from them saying that they're already cancelling this year's as well! Full refunds all round though, so at least there's that. I'm kinda relieved to be honest, as a half-marathon is realistically a bit further than I want to build up to at the moment. But I definitely want to
  17. Jarric's got worms When I was little, probably 6 or 7 years old, I told my parents that my best friend had Worms. They, having not heard of this new computer game, were rather concerned until I managed to explain it to them. Anyway, I upgraded my computer over the weekend (with no small amount of help from @Mr_Willes and @jonfirestar), and finally got round to playing Worms W.M.D. In honour of that, and because I feel like I need some aggression and comedy violence to push me through this next challenge, I'll be running a Worms theme this time round. I need
  18. "I am become terror, the unseen predator, a rupture that obliterates without warning. Alone, the hordes of Enoch will fall before me. but together this entire planet will fear us. The Anomaly alters us each in our own ways but we are drawn down the same road into the dark heart of creation.. We will find the Source - whatever it holds, whatever it takes." [Cover is for Cowards]: You're a biological sledgehammer; act like one and chuck yourself into the fray! Go pound sand, dirt, or pavement like an Outrider through daily mileage; runs, walk
  19. A lot of changes in my life recently means that I have time to regroup. I finished my second master's degree, got engaged, and my boss (who I didn't really get along with that well) retired. If I'm not doing all the things, then I don't know what I'm doing. So now that I have some free time, it's time to fill it - or at least so says my brain. I'm starting my own respawn slightly before the challenge starts just because it's an even six weeks before I get to see my fiancé again, who lives four states, 600 miles, and/or a 9-10 hour drive away depending on how you measure distance. We're tr
  20. Okay, so that challenge title is terrible, but it's stuck in my head so 🤷‍♀️ Especially since this isn't an Eminem challenge (though @Rurik Harrgath did say I looked like him while I was bleaching my hair wearing a white tank top 😂 ). But I am in fact back (back again) and ready for action. This is actually a garden challenge. Earlier this year I made a challenge where I established my mental "Garden" - where I have different characters (grotesques) that live within that garden, and I have to tend to t
  21. I'm moving house at the end of this week. It's also the end of the financial year this week. And some of our lockdown restrictions ended today so small social events are back on the menu. It's going to be a busy month. I can't pretend that I'll have the time or mental space to make a ton of progress this challenge, but I wanted to post something now to just keep me maintaining momentum. I'm wagering £50 on each of my goals. In a move wholly stolen from @deftona my success percentage will go into my savings for fun stuff, and my failure percentage will go into overpaying
  22. My last challenge was simple with a singular focus and I was successful. I will be doing that again this challenge. My challenge goal: Eat more fruits and vegetables That's it. I will keep using Noom to track the increase in fruit and veggie intake as well as exercise and my weight. I go in for arthroscopic hip surgery to clean out my janky hip on April 16th. So exercise is less of a concern until PT starts. I will keep moving as much as possible but that is more of a mood regulator than anything else.
  23. I just finished a re-read of the Harry Potter series, and a re-watch of the movies. Ginny Weasley is one of my favorite characters. And she is one of the best with spells. Spell #1 Reducto To master this spell I need to focus on weight loss I will track with MFP 6 days a week, I will also use other tools such as balanced eating, eating mindfully, delaying before I eat extra food 31+ day of tracking= 2 constitution points 25 -30 days = 1 constitution point 20 -24 + .5 Spell #2 Reneverate To
  24. To continue with the acronym… Those that have been following for a while know that in 2019 I was doing really good hitting my goals, so I went back to see what I was doing then that was working so well. I've been more lax this year on the food aspect (thanks Covid) With D cooking her fair share making a detailed plan is a little more difficult, but that's only one meal a day every other week so it shouldn't derail me as much as I've been letting it. Making sure I stop eating when I'm supposed to is the biggest challenge with food, since what I eat is generally good. We've started somethi
  25. Spezzy Closes a Chapter and Readies for Battle BACKGROUND / WHAT'S GOING ON This has been a crazy year for me so far, and it doesn't look like it's getting any less crazy A few weeks ago, I headed back to Michigan where I will be for the next 6 weeks. I'm working on taking care of a ton of stuff, including packing up my stuff from my apartment and putting it in storage, handing in my keys, and everything else I need to do in the states for a while so I can head back up to Canada and actually start the next chapter of my life. The last fe
