  1. So.. here we go again. I'm trying to get things on track again, after many changes. I decided to come back and do a challenge, to get the ball rollin'. I'm a biologist now, and started my PhD study a few months ago. Days have been crazy. Keep it simple, Joaquin.. Ok.. here, beginner mindset. Diet 1 soda max every week. Eat vegetables with at least one meal; and 1 fruit every day Fitness 3 yoga classes per week Level Up Your Life 5 minutes meditation daily. I've started journaling, almost everyday. I'll write these quests on a page and
  2. I'm new to NF and this is my first challenge. The last few days I have been lurking around in the forums and today I completed the planning worksheet, although I already had something similar in place this broke things down into smaller pieces than I have done before. So here is my challenge: Meditate - 6 days a week Walk - go for some sort of walk, 6 days a week Workout - 3 times a week, see below Eat better - but how?? Some details on the above list: 1) Meditate - I have done a little meditation over the years, and recently a bit more usi
  3. My first (second attempt actually) on a challenge. 3 Goals: Get to a Healthy Weight Overweight at 96kg, healthy weight for 174cm is 78kg. THAT is the target. Confidence Boost Low confidence has made me the poster boy for bullying target, though I am fortunate enough that it did not happen to me. (I had great classmates.) And also, I want to feel what vanity feels like. That rush when someone tells you that you look good. Or that liberating feeling of stripping your shirt off just because you feel like it. (of course, within permissible boundaries) Han
  4. I'm new but I thought I'd post this before going and getting lost in the fun parts of forum life. I'm not 100% sure I understand the formatting required (if it is requried) but here we go: Quests: 1. Be more active 2. Be more social 3. Love myself more (yes that sounds ooey gooey girly and yes i'm trying to think of a better descriptor) 4. Get more flexible Challenge: 1. Do one activity per day. 2. Post pictures on social media 3x per week 3. Write down one positive thing about myself every day 4. Stretch every day
  5. Alright let's get to work! Don't like the habits I've gotten into and the effects they're having on my body, mood, and energy, so let's make the change! 1) take a cold shower every morning! 2) 10 minutes minimum of meditation every morning! (Hopefully I'll start getting out of bed more than 5 minutes before I have to be at work) 3) Cut down to one carbonated beverage a day! (no bigger than a medium) 4) 30 minute walk every evening!
  6. Current: Second challenge Nov 2nd, log start here. First challenge, September 20th - October X log ☆ Sept 20 is when I joined, 6 days later than the start but better late than never. I suppose this can be when I start. A brief journal entry then catalogging my meals and activity are what can be expected. I'll make each post a months worth I think... Food: diced tomatoes and eggs w/pinch of cheese, mudslide, dinner at sofa's so lots of galupse & dolmas, 3 chocolate covered cherries, 8oz coffee with a sneeze of cream Exercise: 10min walk though I suspect it was 7 because my husband
  7. HALLO! My name is Bre and I'm a 24 year old librarian lady (sans bun) living in Georgia who likes to read and pet basset hounds. Fitness has always been a part of my life in one form or another. I was a dancer for 15 years, a tumbler for 6 years, played volleyball for 2 years, and beach volley for 1 year. The toll that dancing took on my ankles and knees and the bad lung capacity I was given as a baby-child has contributed to the fact that I really can't bike, hike, run, jog, jump, or anything that involves me breathing quickly or heavily for long periods of time. Now that I've been
  8. I'm so happy!!!!!! 😀😀😀
  9. It's, like, halfway through the challenge, but I always find challenges halfway, tell myself, "I'll start with the next challenge!" and don't do it. Nope. Not happening no more. So, here I am. I've recently started playing rugby, and I always feel bad when I start wheezing 10 minutes into a game because I can't keep up with the others (it doesn't help that my position requires a high work rate), so that will be my main goal and motivation. Bullet[point]-time: Main Goal: To increase cardiovascular enduranceMotivation: To be able to keep up with teammates and thus contribute to the game. Goal
  10. Hi fellow recruits. I am new to the forums so bear with me :-) I am a 51-year-old gal who is wanting to level up nutrition and fitness. I am still navigating through the Academy, and all the awesome information it has to offer. Main Quest– to lose 6 to 10 pounds during the course of this challenge; thereby increasing my health and wellness :-) Goal 1-MOVE-scheduling a walk;minimum of a mile, 3x-4x per week. Goal 2-LUNCH-plan ahead and pack/bring my lunch 4/5 workdays. Goal 3-SWEETS- to not eat any unplanned sweets/candy at work ( The location of my crappy eating ). I plan to use my fit
  11. Hello! So this is my first challenge, so tell me if I'm doing it wrong... _______________________________________________________ From my Intro Post: A bit about me: My name is Beth; I am 33 in November; I am an American living in Australia, and I am a SAHM with a soon to be 4 yo and triplets that just turned two. I am currently 87.9 kg on Day 1, with some fused vertebrae from a car accident ages ago and some military service, and a deep seated need to do this right this time, despite the fact that I have been a 'bare minimum' type of person my whole life. Why I'm doing this: I'm doing
  12. No Parkour roll practice today. Instead, I shall dance, dance, dance!
  13. I am happy to announce that I am now considered pre-hypertensive rather than having a high blood pressure diagnosis. Current blood pressure: 124/92. I have experienced a steady drop in blood pressure. This is due to cutting out a lot of processed foods in my life, exercising regularly & eating kosher meats.
  14. Allie's Journey Begins: Kiya & The Hourglass There is only an hour left until the clocks are turned back. While I will get the chance to repeat every minute of the next hour, repeating other things in life is a fleeting concept. While 1:08 AM will change an hour from now, there is no changing the candy corns that I ate during that minute (Halloween candy is a blessing and a curse). These poor choices have slowly piled up for me like sand trickling in an hourglass. I'm ready to flip that hourglass over. Now if only I was strong enough to do that... *A light autumn breeze flows through t
  15. Presses [reset]. Hey all! I’m Morgan. I’m a 22 year old cis!female from Minnesota who has tried several times to get healthy. I struggle with clinical depression and am currently in a really low swing, but I’m hoping that focusing on these challenges and being surrounded by community will help. The above photo on the right lists my goals for the next six weeks. I’ll be posting a journal with my current stats (weight, measurements, etc) as well as a full body shot tomorrow. Cheers! -Morgan
  16. Hi everybody, I'm LydiaJaybird. You can call me whichever part of that you prefer. This isn't actually my first challenge, though... About a year ago I did a couple challenges as ElfiKay - got up to running nine miles a week - but then I broke my foot. For a little while I tried to keep up with my diet and some non-foot-related workouts, but my foot took a long time to heal [and gave me a couple cruel periods of false hope where I thought it was better and then it got worse again... even got put back in my boot in February] and I lost heart. Stopped coming on here, stopped trying to diet, gain
  17. You know that heart racing in your throat omgwhy feeling? That is the overall theme here... Also hi my name is Doll, this is scary! Once upon a time 3 years ago, I was super paleo with benefits (so many faux "but it's healthy!" desserts...) for about 2 years ish. I walked a lot and lifted a little. That is the extent of anything even resembling healthy. I have struggled with a variety of eating disorders since I was eleven, but even before then my food model wasn't very good (S.A.D plus extremely regulated in a bad way). The point is my weight fluctuates drastically frequently, I suck at stres
  18. Hi folks! I'm new to Nerd Fitness, and I'm just starting my First Challenge, but I wanted to pop in and say hi. So sad the Mario challenge is not open to recruits, but that is okay! It just means I've got to fishing this one, and stick around. As I said in my challenge thread, the Druid stuff is my home base. I've been practicing yoga, on and off, for 15 years, and teaching it for at least 5. I've been a devout Pagan polytheist for almost as long, of the organic farming, living in the woods, raising goats variety. But I've never had a strong connection between the yoga/fitness stuff and t
  19. Hi there, I'm a white belt browncoat, just getting started with my first challenge. I'm 31, married and have a five-year-old to try and keep up with. I've read Nerd Fitness for a couple of years now but never got into the forums. In the last two months, all three of us signed up for our first martial arts class and we are hooked. The Monks' Guild looks like my home in the near future. Main Quest: Lose 50 lbs in a year. To be more specific, 4 lbs every month. Quest 1: Martial Arts Classes Attend three martial arts classes a week (since I'm jumping in the middle of this challenge, it works
  20. Hey all! This is my first challenge, so I’m a Recruit. I imagine I’ll jump around between other guilds in future challenges--I’ll probably want to be with the Adventurers or Druids for most. Further down the line I definitely have some Assassin aspirations but could see myself hanging with literally any of the others at some point as well. I’ve got to stick to it first, though! Main Quest Lose weight: reach 175 lbs. That’s about 35 down from current weight. Run a 5k without walking. I’m probably not that far from this one. Do 3 bodyweight pull-ups. Pull-ups are my nemesis
  21. Hi all, Telion signing in here for my first (five) week challenge. (As always I'm late again). Main goal: be able to run 5Km in under 45minutes. Challenge quest 1: No double misses and 18/21 workouts achieved in five weeks Challenge quest 2: Be able to complete 5 REAL push ups by the end of the challenge Challenge quest 3: Keep a food and sleep journal. (Side quest, aiming for average of 8 hours sleep a day)
  22. Hi, family! I am Kale. I am not new to Nerd Fitness, but I have recently turned over a new leaf (ha... kale... ha) in my life: COLLEGE. Basically, the Freshman Fifteen is real. I have not gained it haha, but my eating habits have definitely gotten worse since beginning college! Curse you, unlimited meal plan! I am trying to gradually work my way back to a mostly-paleo diet. My hope is to kind of kickstart my health getting back on track in these last couple of weeks of this challenge and get geared up for the next challenge. I never got around to making a character before, so I am very exci
  23. Hello, my fellow Rebels! I am an old follower of Nerd Fitness, however, brand new to the forums! I'm having a bit of a late start with the challenge, but as everyone on here says, better late than never, right? For this Challenge I'm going to focus on the Recruit Mini Challenges as well as work on refining my goals and formatting these challenges. I'm incredibly excited to be doing this because I've been looking for ways to incorporate myself into a bigger community to help motivate me through my journey. Anyway, enough about personals, I'll write an introduction and link it later. Main Que

    TheGC Gearing up

    I would like to improve my confidence in myself by reducing my beer belly... in order to do this My main goal would be to eat healthier home cooked meals which would include vegetables and salad leaves twice a week. I will use a gym 2 times a week... undertaking 30 minute workouts on the crosstrainer and/or treadmill. To change it up I will use the weight equipment for 5 minutes to also gain muscle. At home I will do start off doing 20 sit ups every second day and 10 push ups every other day increasing this gradually until I can do 30. I plan to only have two cans of fizzy juice a week sti
