  1. (note - I randomly signed in to my 750words account and had no idea what to write, so this is what happened. From there, I decided that I'm keeping a diary and will turn it into a daily log here.) I'm feeling kind of lost and confused, so I'm going to write to help myself figure it out. What do I want? I want to be healthier. I want to lose weight. I want to be strong. I want to look and feel sexy. I want to be better than I am. I feel like a lump right now. Kind of meaningless. That sounds super depressing. I don't think I'm depressed? I'm not
  2. I don't even know when was the last time I wrote on this board, nothing shows up in "what I follow" meaning it's been over a year and honestly that isn't too terrible surprising. I'm not 100% sure even when I joined. So I'm not 100% sure when I fell behind the promises I made to myself. I know I was getting on board with it back in 2016, to the point my body was rebelling! I was so sick most of the time! It was a nightmare, and sadly my employeers totally agreed and had to let me go. So while I gave into my body's want of junk food for comfort, I also got my old
  3. But rises again harder and stronger. This is my first GOT themed challenge! I'm at a low point of my life. I just got fired, which means I have to go back to the job I recently quit (if they'll take me back). Also, I'm running out of ways to deal with my anxiety, going out with someone new (which increases such anxiety) and with a lot of things in the air. I'll be focusing on respawning, and rising harder and stronger than ever. Goal 1: Rising Harder and Stronger I recently made an investment in myself. I signed up for a new gym, an expensive one
  4. Nascence: (Noun) A coming into being; a beginning. Introduction: I'm back. It's been a while, so allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Richard and I'm a newspaper editor who loves hip hop, board games and hiking. (For my origin, check out my battle log.) I'm a wordy person, so here's your spoiler warning that I tend to ramble quite a bit. I used to go by EternalJourno, but I renamed myself a while back as Rey of Light. Rey is Spanish for king and obviously a play on the word "ray." The idea was to rebrand myself as a being or force of light and positivity, which has been h
  5. Hi, I'm Brittany. I previously tried to complete challenges as a Rebel and quests as an Assassin and couldn't keep up with either. I was diagnosed as an adult with ADHD and hooboy, is it ever in charge. I'm floundering on day-to-day stuff and it seems like what I really need is to be able to better balance myself. There is a lot of data supporting mindfulness and meditation as a tool in the toolbox for controlling ADHD symptoms so I'm really hoping this works! A little about me: By day, I work in data analytics and by night, I wrangle a toddler, a husband and two cats. At 32, I st
  6. JessOfAllTrades Builds I believe the last time I was here was before the school year started (or had just started). So here I am, end of November and past the first marking period, and I feel like I'm still just getting started getting into the swing of work. This school year has been rough, to put it simply. I am holding up okay, but I know I need to do better if I am going to get through all of this nonsense with my physical and mental health intact. And truth be told I'm tired of being tired and sick all the time, because it leaves me with little energy or creative thought to wo
  7. Hi, everyone. I'm a couple of days late, but hoping to join in this challenge as a sort of first timer. I've been lurking on NFR for a while and have tried creating forums and participating, but...life issues always seem to get in the way, and I can't seem to make progress on my fitness. I want to change that. I don't want to dwell on all the problems, but I have a lot of family stuff that takes up time, a hostile workplace that I can't leave just yet, a really horrible battle with depression, and a habit of letting go of self-care when I am depressed, anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed. I am
  8. Hello! I'm kuawen, and this is my first NF challenge. I'm new to NF:RH but I'm not new to diet and exercise. Ten years ago, I lost 100lbs through diet and exercise alone. The problem is, over the past year, I've gained it all back. What happened? Well, I'm not 100% sure. I've continued to exercise and eat right, but the weight keeps piling on. So, after seeing a number of doctors that couldn't give me any answers, my family and I moved to Los Angeles so that i can be seen by one of the country's top endocrinologist. In the meantime, while I wait for test results t
  9. I am Odinson_Rising, and I truly feel unworthy. The path is rocky and sometimes treacherous, but the challenges and obstacles in my way should provide opportunities for improvement. Should. Right now, I'm having trouble framing my challenges in that way. It's important for me to acknowledge that struggle to myself because I don't believe I'll otherwise be able to overcome it. I will overcome that struggle. Here's what I've been doing: I start with a decent breakfast, if I eat at all. Today's was 3 eggs w/ 2 sausage patties and some cinnamon stewed apples -
  10. My City of Ruins: 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 weighed 255 lbs. I joined a gym, started eating better, found NF, and in around 18 months, I'd just about scraped under 200 lbs, got myself a nice suit, and life was going... better. But interest started to flag, and a combination of work-related stress, family dramas, injuries, illness and dark depression took hold, and I went under the ice for a while. It started with some niggling aches and
  11. Yo Aloha Hola Oy! I am baaaaaack! I had a baby 6 weeks ago, and am feeling that it is time to respawn! I'm looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones as I work to get healthier and hopefully get some of this baby chub off. I hope to feel more like myself by the end of his challenge, since having a baby definitely changes your body and how you spend your time. Due to some health issues, I wasn't able to workout almost at all my last trimester of pregnancy and with all my food aversions returning the last few weeks, my nutrition wasn't all
  12. Well, I guess this is a respawn. I've generally been sliding a bit for the past few months, and then the last month hit me with end-of-school, convention prep, travel, and a nasty sickness that made working out extremely difficult, plus some bad nutrition advice that I didn't identify and stop in time. Went to the doctor's last week, and when they closed the door, the full-length mirror on the backside showed me sitting slumped in the chair looking way too out of shape and unhappy. So, time to respawn. The biggest problem I see is all the preconceptions I have from the past few yea
  13. (badelynge: collective noun for a group of ducks on the ground) I wandered off and has no good excuses. I let most things slide: the diet, the strength training, the mindfulness. The one thing I kept up with was running. And yesterday, October 7th, I ran a 5k. Granted, it took 39:25 but I did it! All of a sudden, I'm motivated again. Time to re-spawn. I'm not sure if I delete past entries or not. I'm not very proud of my half-assedness the first time around. But I'm feeling good and ready to fly, so here we go (again).
  14. Fu*ked up last few days, dad brought a meth junkie prostitute home to live here (im paying rent) told me his pill junkie pot head friend is moving into my room w me, and because I told the tweaker I knew she was on meth and knew she was doing a lot more than housework to pay the rent... ive got 3 weeks to find a new place when studios only come up 2x a month and they are 1,400+ to rent with 100 applicants going for each of em, and a bad root canal, and trouble at work, and a $400.00 speeding ticket... this last week just sucked, ofc I went off diet too. Im so on edge I'm snapping at friends, a
  15. Hi guys! It's been a long time... I'll make a quick recap of the last couple of months. First, CrossFit got way too expensive to be economically sustainable so I had to quit my box. I drifted aimlessly for a while, looking for a new gym that was close to the office and affordable. In the meanwhile I kept on training Krav Maga twice a week as usual. After a rather depressing month, I gave up on trying to find an affiliate with a reasonably affordable full pass (I work in a really expensive part of town). Just when I began looking for a regular gym, one of the Team Leaders at
  16. Hi guys! It's a new challenge, a new season of life, and a new opportunity to grow into myself. I know I have a lot of potential for cool things, and I'm owning that here in this challenge. I'm owning the fact that I'm not where I want to be; I'm owning the two sub-par jobs. I'm owning the nervousness about being done with college. I'm owning the bad choices I made before. I'm saying that I'm ok and the strength within me will always be greater than the challenge before me. I'm new to the Rangers and proud of myself! The theme for this challenge is strong starts and new beginnings.
  17. What happened? How did I get here? Well... ...well, I left my old working place, and got a better job. was not easy, but did it! my wife got her big promotion, and now is a big boss at work! we got a loan from the bank and have bought a french car. I call him Red. I started doing a lot of additional work in local community , teaching kids to role play. ... and I really really tried to have my own dojo, but it went bust. I put op the posters monthly, I invited people regularly, I made ads and stuff,
  18. *stumbles out of bushes, covered in leaves, and shakes off the black dog that's chewing on my leg* >.> Well. Uh. <.< Oops. Nothing's really up except that I got Lostâ„¢ and find myself back at square one again. Haven't been keeping up with anything, really. Got...pretty bad for a bit. But that's been enough and it's time to get going again. Admittedly I no longer- for a while now -have a big, clearly-defined "this is what I'm working toward" because from a purely realistic standpoint I don't know. None of what I used to want makes sense anymore for a bunch of
  19. Been on again off again here for years. Time to give it a go again. My goals for this go round are fairly simple: food, walking, and tracking. 1. Food. My husband and I are taking the kids to Disney World in October. We've been before and I've been getting fatter each trip. Last trip the rides were tight and I've put on about 25 lbs since then. Thus, I need to lose a bit of weight so I can fit on the rides. I've a friend who's going low carb keto and she says it's been working great for her, so I'm giving it a go. From now until October 14th (when we leave for our trip) I'm going t
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
