  1. Hey Guys, I haven't done a challenge in quite a while, although I'm pretty excited to get back to it and lift heavy shit. I've been playing a ton of Dungeons & Dragons lately, so I'm going to go with a viking theme. They're strong badasses, right? A bit of history: I will be doing a keto diet based off of Mark Bell's advice and running the 5x5 program from keto gains (basically ICF 5x5 with fewer accessories). For pretty much my entire lifting career, my squat has lagged behind my bench and dead. For a long time, I was doing half squats and then starte
  2. So I used Nerd Fitness for a bit a few years ago but stopped after a while when Uni became all consuming. In that time I've put on more weight and my willpower has decreased, I've tried multiple times to lose weight but it's never stuck. I feel like a hamster stuck in a wheel, just going around and around, doing the same things and nothing working. Thinking back to when I had my largest and most stable weight loss, it was here, on Nerd Fitness. So I'm going to try again and I'm going to start now. I'm off to the gym in a few minutes, I've got a slight plan in my head
  3. Ok, so. After the total disaster that was last month's challenge and then completely falling off the wagon this week due to grief (a friend of mine died, found out Monday. Since Monday, I've watched a season and a half of Community, eaten a good 20,000 calories of junk food and fast food, done exactly 3km of walking and that's it for anything physical, stopped setting daily goals and checklists at work, and had like two servings of vegetables spread across four days. I am grieving, yes, but this is not a healthy way to go about it. I need to get my shit together again.), I need to
  4. Lincoln's Log Respawn Report Stardate [-4]94697.4 First off, hi. Fist time posting here. Usually I post in my Daily Battle log cleverly titled "Lincoln's Log," hence the header with the stardate of the beginning of this post. I suppose some background is in order. I've found my biggest road block in my health and fitness journey, and actually in all things that I struggle with, stems from my at the moment thoughts and feelings towards romantic relationships. More accurately in my case, my lack of said facet in my life. I'm going to be 24 this Frida
  5. Sometimes, a network gets it completely wrong and cancels an incredible show because ratings are beginning to falter. As time passes, interest slowly renews in the darkest recesses of the internet, growing into a clamour, and eventually Netflix cobbles together a reboot. In the grand tradition of these shoddy and shameless rehashings... The Arrested Development of SomeGuyFromScotland A select few of you may remember me. I came, I did some challenges, I dropped some weight, and then life started life-ing me and I disappeared. In early 2015, I weig
  6. I've been realizing recently that I am in need of some re-branding. I need to start seeing myself differently than I have before if I'm going to make the changes I want to see in my life. I need to really commit, and decide what is most important. And I need to have some more meaningful inspiration. I've recently found that inspiration in an assassin of old, Teancum (pronounced tee-ANG-come). He was a stalwart general, and a deadly assassin. He was fit in body, mind, and spirit. He is someone I would like to emulate. In order to re-brand myself, and have a f
  7. I'm just going to put this here for a moment: Challenge Spreadsheet.
  8. It took some time but it’s only a failure if you quit and don’t try again… So after beign away for quite some time I decided it’s time to pick up „Level Up Your Life“ again and do a respawn both working through Steve’s book again (but this time with a little more discipline) and also to get back to the rebellions forums. So here we go Assasin no more (for now at least) but looking to find a new profession that works with the goals and hobbys that developed while beign busy with life The Challenge: „After the holidays Schaengel was eager to go back to Hogwarts…not because oft he l
  9. For almost a year now, I’ve been on the quest to travel to foreign lands and find the healing herb that can save my husband. For the last half of that journey, I’ve been sitting in a horse-drawn carriage, eating my way through the enchanted cotton candy forest. I can see daylight break through the pink clouds of sugary hell, so it’s time I prepare myself for the rest of the journey - I’ll be no use whatsoever in my current state once I get out of here and actually have to walk and possibly even fight monsters. Oh the horror! [My husband got really sick last year. He’s
  10. Hey! So this is my first challenge and I'm coming in late/ have no idea what I'm doing. But! Here goes! I'm a 25 year old trans man living in London. I started a new job 2 weeks ago (win) and am working my way through an online access course. I used to be involved in adventure sports like climbing and downhill mountain biking as well as gymnastics. I've been super sad recently that I let all that go because of some silly preoccupation with no longer being in the shape I used to be. So starting now I'm concocting a plan to rehone my assassin skills. My lon
  11. 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
  12. She blinked as she woke up. She reached for her glasses on the nightstand...good god, it's covered with stuff. What happened to the sleek modern nightstand with a couple magazines and a fancy ipad that controlled the lights? This place is a wreck. She finds her phone...it's 7 am. She never wakes up that early without an alarm. Slowly she begins to remember. She's not in London anymore. The view outside her window is no longer the impenetrable Tower of London, it's...a two-story 1960s LA apartment building. She can see the smog in the distance, and it's already pushin
  13. So I'm back up to the weight (or something close to it) and size that I was when I first joined Nerd Fitness and started working out. The last three years have taught me that weight and size don't really matter to me though; it's strength and flexibility I'm after. I want to be able to crush watermelons with my thighs! I want to be able to outmanoeuvre people bigger and stronger than me if we were to wrestle. I know that it took me about four months to get to a shape I was proud of the first time I did this, and I got there through calorie reduction, BBWW, and swimming. I know I can do it agai
  14. After falling off mid-challenge back in Feb, and going through some life issues that ultimately ended in falling on my face. See re-spawn if you care to read the novel: At the heart of a the worst storm the lands had seen in generations, Ruby-wan found her dolphin-pulled dingy spiraling out of control. The sole survivor of her once mighty crew, she struggled to take the reigns. Up to this point, her life had been one endless struggle after another, and fortune didn't seem to be turning. This storm would not break, but neither would she. As a nearby barrier gave way Ruby-wan freed the dol
  15. Okay! First, read this. I'll wait. http://www.laurawitwer.com/2017/06/29/post-laura-witwer-ego-smashed/ That blog post hit me preeeeetttty hard in the feels. When my circus gym reopened after >1 year, I somehow expected to pick up right where I left off. Amazingly, this did not happen. I spent a few months bootcamp-ing, aerial style and when i had some strength back, jumped back into a skills class. My ego did not take this well. I'm finally to the point where I'm feeling somewhat strong most classes, but I definitely have the "Comparing myself to myself" moments come back and b
  16. Complete and total respawn! I've wiped the slate clean. All goals from the academy were wiped at the end of June, and I'm working from the ground up. In general, I classify myself as a ranger, but for this round, I humbly begin where I started once before (a little wiser and more realistic). My goals are very general, and simple for now... But it's what feels right, so I'm going with it! 1) Sit down with family at least once a week for dinner 2) Do workout every MWF 3) Walk Ellie every day after work to help curb puppy energy 4) Check off at least 3 “daily” c
  17. NNNNNEEEEEEERRRRRRDDDDSSSSS <3 <3 <3 My goodness it has been FAR TO FREAKIN’ LONG! After Nerd Fitness being blocked at work, losing my personal computer to cat aggression, and then slipping a disc in my neck my NerdLife™ has been severely lacking. But I finally got a new computer, am more or less recovered in terms of my neck, and am ready to start moving forward again. I need to get over my mental hurdle/fear of lifting again since I’m so terrified to put weight on my back again. Mind you, I messed up my neck SLEEPING, because sure that’s a thing now. Bu
  18. Well, dear Ranger family, I’m back. Again. I’ve been off and on this challenge train for a few years now, and I think it’s finally time this stuck. I’m feeling good about it, I’m in a good place in my life, so why the hell not, right?! As this is a total respawn for me, I’m starting from the lowest rung on the ladder. Over the last 2ish weeks, I’ve been updating my Battle Log waiting for this challenge to start. For those of you who haven’t seen it, I’ll summarize the last 6-7months since I've been here (in no particular order): -I left an unhealthy and, in hindsight, e
  19. Hello everyone! My name is Drew and I signed up for NerdFitness a LONG time ago, but failed to get any accountability to go with it, so it totally fell by the wayside. Well, now my brother has signed up, and is going through the Academy, so I'm respawning as he starts out. We're both teachers, so as the new school year looms, we have the opportunity to establish healthy habits and schedules this time around. It will be my fifteenth year teaching, which is kind of hard to believe, but the great thing about teaching is that the structure of the year builds in a forced respawn in terms of your te
  20. I failed spectacularly. I have gained almost ALL my weight back, and I've been sick for the last 7 months with colds, sinus infections, bronchitis, and then COLDS. A nurse kindly said to me "It's very easy to neglect your health." and I realized being sick had become normal. I didn't think I was neglecting my health, I thought I was taking care of my loved ones and being a good family member. Just because I gained all my weight back and couldn't breathe without coughing, I mean... Yeah okay. I neglected my health BIG time. I knew I should be working out, I knew I needed to eat bett
  21. Fnnngh. FNNNNGH. FNNNNNNGHHHH SIZZLE POP! Ah, that's better. Salambander here, although I guess I'm Gurdris now. Named after my most recent D&D character, Gurdris Frostbeard. I have respawned as Salambander so many times I felt like a fresher start. So, not a respawn but a regeneration entirely. All knobs have been twisted back to zero, and the neutrinos have mutated back to their original states. Long time no see! Things have happened. I'm engaged! And the ring didn't fit a month ago but now, 5kg down later, it does. It's a handy () reminder
  22. Welp. I joined The Academy around Christmas, and my new semester of grad school did me in. It's time to start this over again and differently. Now that I know the challenges and forums exist, I am giving those a whirl. My goals for this challenge are: Drink 64 oz of water a day five days a week Cook at home at least 2x a week (to help give Hubster a break.) Walk 5 minutes every day and yoga 3 times a week Spend ten minutes cleaning each day six days a week They are simple, but I think I need to start over at simple and move forward. The last time I was active
  23. It's been a while since I've been doing stuff with NF, so I am going to consider this my respawn. I've been using Habitica for a lot of my dailies tracking and habit-building, but posting here for accountability. I'm currently interning abroad in Portugal and my apartment has very much become my home. I have to taxi everywhere, so the combination means that when I have a bad day or a lot of work, I mostly just stay indoors and don't leave. While this saves me a lot of money, it means I'm not taking advantage of all there is to do here. Today might be a bad example si
  24. I'm writing so I don't psych myself out of it. I joined Nerd Fitness academy a year ago and did great a couple months then fell off the wagon. I stumbled upon the 4 week challenge and thought I need this!!! I gave up soda and all liquid calories except a morning coffee and also gave up smoking my first time around. However my job is sedentary and I have just gained weight. I am not at my highest, but I hate my body. I'm happily married, 45 yr, and my daughter is getting married next June. My husband and I are ready for new adventures and to redo life for activity and nutrition.
  25. I haven't been around in quite a while. While I was doing a challenge, I found I had to go to the doctor, because some stuff just wasn't right. I just couldn't make the goals I had for sleeping, loosing weight and a few other things. I already knew I have Sjorgren's syndrome and Fibromyalgia, but I didn't know I had sleep apnea as well. It's taken a lot of time to adjust to my cpap machine and find the correct mask. Then the doctor assigned me to get physical therapy 3x per week. (I was hit by a pick up truck in 2014 and still have a lot of trouble with my left knee because of that.) That's wh
