  1. Here I am for another comeback! One of these has to stick eventually... I have no idea how I left things in my last challenge, or even how long ago that was, and I'm way too lazy to check, so some updates which may or may not be known: I got a new job with a Real Adult Paycheque™. This has allowed me to get a shiny new computer, which makes these forums much less of an onerous task (my 13 year old Mac would get me there eventually, but it left me lots of time for idle contemplation and getting distracted). It has also allowed me to indulge just a bit in my Ranger Brain
  2. The rain was coming down in sheets outside the cabin, the striking drops like a stream of pebbles crashing against the roof. I padded over to the window and gently wiped away the fog, pressing my fingertips against the cool glass and relishing the glimmer of the dense branches and leaves flickering under the heavy water weight. It might still be summer, but the first hints of autumn were showering down with the gray rain. After a few moments I realized I was twisting my wedding ring on my left hand, and I smiled at myself. I had been a wife for a little more than a week, and both
  3. I don't remember the last time I did a challenge here. So now I'm gonna come in late and set up shop like I've never been away. Because why not?! (and, uh, I missed you folks, you know?) Long story short, I have a damn good reason for not being here for so long and due to circumstances being what they are now, it seems like a good time to dip back in and see what happens. Life is actually pretty good right now. I've worked hard to make that happen and would really quite like to keep it that way. There are, however, a few sticking points that I do need the ex
  4. Technically there are six days left, but still. I feel like I'm cheating, but I didn't want to wait! 😅 I've been away from the forums for quite a while (and if you count 'productively participating in the forums'... even longer!). Life got in the way, but now things are settling a little and instead of waiting for a perfect calm I'm just going to jump back in. For this tiny challenge I'm going to pick some simple things to get back in the motions: 1. Swap out morning Diet Coke for morning Tea. Over the past year I've managed to go from drinking a lot of
  5. Let's try that again. Goals for this challenge: - eat mostly properly - move heavy stuff - tidy something every day - focus on breathing properly and physio stuff so I hurt less I, uh. I guess this is a respawn. _____________________________ _____________________________ Aug 02 - The Great Pyrenees is a very old breed that has been used for hundreds of years by shepherds, including those of the Basque people, who live in and around the Pyrenees Mountains of southern France and northern Spain. *putting the r
  6. So, in one form or three, I've been in the community off and on for 6 years. I've had different names however somehow nothing gets to stick because my identity just is static. Nevertheless, I'm getting back because I need a focus, a support system to help me out. My bullseye goal right now is to be under 300 lbs solidly by mid-January so I don't get kicked off a whale-watching boat in the Caribbean. Well, and personal health too. Theme-wise I'm feeling a doubleheader of Infinity goals. Three this challenge, three the next and using the focus of the Infinity Stones as
  7. Hi. I'm Yvonne. A lifetime ago I was on the NF boards, completed a bunch of fantastic challenges, lost 20lbs, leveled up my life, had an exciting pregnancy announcement, dropped off the boards during the actual pregnancy, briefly came back, dropped off again, and now here I am. I've leveled up in new ways, gained and lost weight, tried other programs to keep me motivated, and somehow keep coming back. NerdFitness, my my happy, get-shit-done home. A little bit about me: I'm in my mid-30s, use she/her pronouns, happily married in suburbia but not too far from great
  8. When we last met, the very awkward Doe was wondering "is this real life?" My first Nerd Fitness Challenge was back in 2015. Since then, I have a habit of popping back in every couple of years. Came back for the 10th anniversary challenge as the apocalypse unfolded like a slow-motion car wreck. Life got weird quick. Fall is fire season, we had awful air quality and a couple days where the sky was actually orange. Luckily for me, I completed my long awaited Calexit to the South in October. I keep coming back, that's all that counts right? Despite the chaos, I've do
  9. Decided rather than continue the old challenge, I'm gonna just start a new one over. That seems to be the running theme over the last week or so for me, anyway. A lot of old stuff (old habits, ways of thinking, etc) isn't working, so I might as well clear stuff out and start from scratch. The Challenge: Five objectives for this challenge. 1. No alcohol for the duration of the challenge (well, no alcohol for all of 2021, of which this challenge is a small slice, so...) 2. Log everything that I eat for the duration of the challenge. Again, no stressing about getting t
  10. My mother died in October (at age 85). My daughter got married in October, and she and her new husband are starting to talk about having kids. This has prompted some new soul searching on my part - and some thinking about what I want to accomplish in my life. And some thinking about what I want to BE as a grandma. (Disclaimer - my daughter is not yet pregnant and doesn't plan to have kids for 2 years, which gives me time to lose 40 pounds .....) I was a "cool mom." My daughter looks back on her childhood with fondness - at horseback riding and rock climbing and hockey and socc
  11. So I've been out, and not for a lack of trying. I think it's been years since I actually completed a challenge satisfactorily (probably because of the depresso and the drugs 😝). Tried to do the last challenge as @sarakingdom suggested, but I kept procrastinating, and here we are. For those not following the absolute disasterpiece that is my Instagram fitness-turned-meme-page, I haven't really trained since lockdown, I've been sleeping on the couch for a year (because I can't afford to fix the room), depression hit hard and I ended up dropping out of school, and I'm on my second wee
  12. Pumped and ready to get slowly chiseling away at my larger goals. Woot! The Backstory I started my Nerd Fitness journey years ago, long before my two kiddos arrived on the scene, and it's been a while since I've been around these parts. (I was AgentKatia then!) Now I'm back at it as a Rookie, trying to make sustainable changes. As much as I want to dive in deep so I can see quicker results, having two kids under 5 has dramatically changed my approach to, well, life. And now I need to learn to chisel. To chip away and reveal the sculpture inside the marble slab, to paraphrase
  13. Salutations and good health! I am pleased to have found the Rebellion after mourning the decay of Fitocracy for many years. I have been doing some kind of fitness activity for the past 15 years, but as an overweight office worker it is easy for me to fall out of shape quickly. Recently, the romantic siren call of the Triathalon has caught my ears and I am toying with preparing for one. I've never done a Tri before, and the last time I buckled down and did a training plan (6 years ago) I ended up getting freaked out after getting kicked in the head at a lap swim and yelled at -- if I can't
  14. Hello old friends and friends to come. Stay awhile, and listen. It looks like it's creeping up on two years since I last attempted a challenge. I once again humbly offer myself to the rebellion in search of inspiration, motivation, and reinforcements in my battle with entropy. Since Diablo 2: Resurrected is scheduled to be released later this year, I thought it a fitting challenge theme for my namesake. It's a remaster, so basically, it's a version of the game that should function more or less the same as the original, but look a lot better. Incidentally, this is exact
  15. I've been a member of the rebellion since 2014, but I haven't participated in a challenge since 2015! A lot of things have changed around here, in my life, and in the world in general in the past six years. My health and fitness improved a lot, but like many peeps I think, 2020 was a rough go, and the first half of 2021 hasn't been much better. While I kept up a regular lunch-time walk over the course of the pandemic, pretty much everything else fell to the wayside while I kept myself safe and sane. So here I am, ready for a respawn with all of you beautiful people! My overall goal for right
  16. Background My name is aquadwayne (formerly tgsmith489, but I figured it was time for a change) and I have been active on the nerdfitness forums off and on for 6 years or so. I have done several challenges in that time and lost a lot of weight. I started in 2014 at ~350lbs then over the course of a year, got down to ~230lbs through IIFYM and lifting. During my lifting, I got a bad case of fuckarounditis and changed programs constantly and as a result didn't make much progress in terms of strength. My diet was solid during the week, but weekly cheat meals turned into weekly cheat weekends a
  17. The forever rookie. The infinite respawner. The open and curious mind. I seek the mindframe of the ultimate beginner. I'm milythael by the way. I've been away. Whilst away, the roller-coaster of my life has trended down. I'm in the worst shape of my life physically and not doing that great mentally. Oh well, if you are going to reverse the trajectory of your life, it helps to turn around. As I reflect back, for a time NF helped me and I found community here. Hopefully this time I can again. I choose to be a rookie again, though I suspect I've been gone
  18. 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
  19. Hello, all! I was on here a long while ago working on my fitness and am returning several years later (and several years older - welp!) from an entirely different country and with completely different goals, ready to work on myself again! 😄 Back then I was in my late teens and concentrated heavily on cardio and studying to great success, but I also had far less to contend with back then. I'm quite a changed person now, with a job I love in a city in England, an intolerance to lactose that I was free of as a youngster (boo), and an only slightly detrimental work ethic (
  20. Overall, I didn't feel like I made a tonne of progress during my 1/2 challenge. Life just keeps beating me down, so I do feel ok about the fact I didn't make reverse progress. This challenge is going to be simple and straightforward, nothing outside of my comfort zone for now. I really just need to focus on reestablishing habits, in this case, the habit of exercise. Goal #1 ~ Show up for gym appointments (3x/week) While it makes being flexible kinda hard, the fact that I have to schedule gym appointments is probably good for me. Generally, if left to my own devices, I'l
  21. Woah I am loving the new challenge forum set-up (multiclassing ftw!). So hey, I'm Gar. Been on and off the forums since 2012, most active during 2017. Had a bit of a "treading water" hiatus from end 2018 through mid-2020 but ready to respawn with baby steps. Build a Consistent Schedule: 1) Weeknight - In Bed by 22:30; Out of bed by 06:30 (adjustment for Week 4 --> 22:00 bedtime. 5:50 wake up) 2) Weekend - In bed by 00:00; Out of bed by 09:00 3) 20 mins of movement Walking in my neighborhood counts as 1/2 credit towards time - because daily do
  22. I'm respawning after several years. I lifted and tracked macros 6 years ago and lost 120lbs. Since then, I've stopped tracking, lifting, and worrying about my health. I've had job changes, got married, had a baby, lost a grandfather, and had COVID to contend with. My grandpa died in February and I was very close with him. He is the first person I've been close with to die, so it caused me to re-evaluate a lot of things in my life. His health had been deteriorating for the past couple of years with his lungs working less and less, though he also had a history of heart problems (with a heart att
  23. Let me know if I've flubbed this opening, the forum has changed a touch in the hot second since I posted outside of anything but my Battle Log ( and even that was intermittent at best ). But yes! I'm here, crash landing, thumbs up outside the crater hole I've left in the front yard. Half-way through a challenge, in the midst of changing things, but when aren't things changing and challenging? My final essay is due on Friday (3k, 99% unwritten), which is mad to think about. I joined the forums when I was starting this uni business (in philosophy), and I'm less than a week off f
  24. Acute systems failure due to known glitches with the 202.0 program. Please reboot your system and apply the 202.1 patch. (More details on 202.0 crash here) So far, the 202.1 patch & update is working much better on my end - I'm halfway through a 30 days of yoga series (which is probably the longest I've continued a workout series in years), am back on a 4*10hr shift schedule which is making food prep much easier for me to handle, and I got myself a Fitbit which is a very bossy little helper that also helps keep me on track. So now that last month didn't (entirely) suck, ti
  25. So I've been on hiatus for most of a year for a variety of reasons (good and bad). But it's time for a respawn, so I'm reaching out again to the support networks I have (the forums here, Connect on the WeightWatchers app, etc) to try and maintain accountability and get regular feedback on things. Yet to do: re-write my Life at Level 50 mission statement/goals (Work changed, and with it, the driving need to drown my frustrations in food and shopping). The previous battle log is here, if anyone wants to visit the unpleasant swamp of the past: https://rebellion.nerdfit
