  1. I'm back! Here's to the third challenge of the year! *cheers!* This challenge I want to work on something I did not do so well last challenge, with slight modifications. Goal 1 Make vegetables my friend For this challenge, I would like to focus on eating vegetables three times per day, five three times per week. I will track this with MFP. I plan on having enough vegetables available for me to eat three times per day. Grades A: 18-20 times B: 14-17 times C: 10-13 times D: Less than 9 times Goal 2 Eat more of the good stuff The good stuff I am referring to is protein. This challenge I would like to focus on eating 35% of my calories from 90 grams of protein at least 5 three days per week. I will track this with MFP. That equals to 630 calories per day from protein. (I would like some tips on how to get this much protein in, so please, advice me ) Grades A: 18-20 times B: 14-17 times C: 10-13 times D: Less than 9 times Goal 3 Step up my step up game I'm taking a huge leap this challenge and getting started on c25k. I have read some information on it and downloaded the app on my phone. I plan on doing the runs while at work. Grades A: 10-12 runs B: 6-9 runs C: 2-5 runs D: 1 run or less Life Goal: This challenge I would like to have some physical activity with my daughter. I think going on one walk per week with her at the park would be great. We rarely do things like that because on the weekend I just go to the gym. I would like to include her in being able to get exercise as well, especially since she walks and would enjoy walking around outside.
  2. Welcome! I'm back for the second challenge of 2016. Working off my last challenge, I decided I needed to get a little bit real about my goals and aspirations. My long term goal is to run the International Marathon here in Sacramento as a relay run with my brother. That means we will each run a half marathon that will be split into two runs each. This is happening in December, but I want to start prepping my pretties (legs) for it. What I do from here on out, will be focusing on that master goal. Without further delay, let's get on our way Goal 1: Run, baby run! For this goal, I will run once a week. Grades- A: Run 4 times B: Run 3 times C: Run 2 times D: Run 1 time or less Goal 2: Stretch and look fierce For my second goal, I will commit to doing yoga twice per week. Grades- A: Do yoga 7-8 times B: Do yoga 5-6 times C: Do yoga 3-4 times D: Do yoga 2 times or less Goal 3: Graze the greens For this goal, I will eat 5 servings of vegetables 5 times per week. Grades- A: 18-20 days goal met B: 15-17 days goal met C: 11-14 days goal met D: 10 or less days goal met Life Goal: My life goal is to budget for and sign up for the International Marathon. I know I need to have a sign up fee. I will research costs, sign up deadlines and figure out my budget so I can get my brother and I signed up. Cheers to a kick ass 4 weeks ahead!
  3. We are here! At our first 2016 challenge! I am excited to start off the year with the rebellion and see where the year takes us all. Since this is a leap year and leap years are full of awesomeness and an extra day, my spirit animal shall be the Unicorn. I will let it guide me through this year with all its glittery splendor. Let's get this pony unicorn on the road! Goal #1: Eat the Rainbow, Be the Rainbow For this goal, I would like to eat a vegetable rainbow per day. This includes frozen, canned and fresh vegetables. I will track with pictures what my daily intake of colorful veggies is. Grades- A: 22-28 Rainbows for entire challenge B: 17-21 Rainbows for entire challenge C: 11-16 Rainbows for entire challenge D: 10 or less Rainbows for entire challenge Goal #2: Turn this Fabulous Fatness into Fabulous Fitness For this goal, I would like to log in at least 30 minutes of activity per day. I plan on tracking this with RunKeeper. For this month, it might mostly be walking, but it will most definitely count! Grades- A: 22-28 30-minutes of Activities Logged B: 17-21 30-minutes of Activities Logged C: 11-16 30-minutes of Activities Logged D: 10 or less 30-minutes of Activities Logged Goal #3: Become a Sea Unicorn For this goal, I am focusing on my water intake during my weekends. I do great at work, I drink at least 10 cups of water, but during the weekends, I am lucky if I get 3. This contributes a lot to my overindulgence during the weekend and I would like to drink more instead of eat more. My goal is to get the recommended 8 cups of water per day during my weekends. Grades- A: 6 Days where goal was met B: 5 Days where goal was met C: 4 Days where goal was met D: 3 or less Days where goal was met Goal #4: Magical Money Management After much denial, I decided to try out You Need A Budget and try to adult in regards to my money. I just started and it's a bit overwhelming. I have signed up to do a couple of classes this week to learn a little bit more about the program in an attempt at being as successful as possible. This will be a Pass/Fail goal. I am very optimistic that it will be a PASS! I will update as much as possible. May this be a magical journey for all!
  4. Hey everyone, Oh my god. It's been a good 20 months or so since I was back here. I had a baby in December 2014, she's now 11 months old. Here we are I am still the weight I was when I had her- no lie. Probably a few pounds off, but not much. My life has changed quite a bit, to say the least. And now I want to focus on losing some weight. I am trying to watch my caloric intake. I am not at the point of a complete diet overhaul because I am breastfeeding. I am going to start slow, so here we go! Goals: 1. Log at least 5 days per week into MyFitnessPal (raraohlala, if you want to friend me) Grade scale: A: 28-33 logged days B: 20-27 logged days C: 14-19 logged days D: Less than 13 logged days 2. Take two walks per week that equal about 10k steps- probably at the mall, with baby in tow. Grade scale: A: 10-12 10k days B: 7-9 10k days C: 4-6 10k days D: 3 or less 10k days 3. Try to stay within (no more than 200 calories over) my calorie limits on MyFitnessPal as best as possible. Grade scale: A: Average of 1800 Calories through entire challenge B: Average 1900 Calories through entire challenge C: Average 2000 Calories through entire challenge D: Average more than 2000 Calories and I stopped caring Life: Do research on how to pay for school. Bonus: Check in with you all at least once a week. I need to get batteries for my scale and will report numbers later. I'm excited to be back. I love this community and hope to get to know you all!
  5. I'm back! Back for the 2nd 2014 NF 6-week Challenge and my 6th 6-week challenge overall. The lowdown: Epic Quest: I have signed up for a 10k on April 6th, 2014, the RockNRoll half-marathon on May 19, 2014 and the Portland half-marathon on October 5th, 2014. I would like to finish the half-marathons in 2h30 or less and would really, really like to finish the 10k at about 60min. Currently my average mile is between 11:15-11:30, which means I have 6 weeks to cut close to 90s from my mile in order to accomplish the 10k in 60min. Doable? Let's hope so! This challenge I want to focus on flexibility and staying positive. For the first time ever, I will also be rewarding myself for activities done. I think that was a missing component in challenges past. Side Quest 1: Be Conscious This quest's focus will be about food. My quest is to write and be accountable for everything that I consume. The purpose is to meet my daily food needs and keep in touch with how I feel when I eat certain foods. I am aiming at 85-90% paleo as well as drinking 96 oz of water daily. For every day that I write down all that I consume will be a $1 towards whatever I want to spend it on at the end of the challenge. Side Quest 2: Be Brisk This quest's main purpose is to get me to finish the 10k at the end of this challenge around 60 minutes. I will be training for the 10k and the half-marathon concurrently. I plan on getting in 3-4 runs a week as well as doing body weight work outs. I plan on rewarding myself $1 per mile run and $1 per body weight work out. The money will be used to spend as I wish at the end of the challenge. Most likely I will buy clothes Life quest: Be Friendly To be honest, I wasn't sure I would be coming back for another challenge. A couple of people I have been challenging with since last year have dropped out and it really bummed me out. I do credit the Nerd Fitness community for the success I have had in my weight-loss and ass kicking journey and know that if I stop now, not only will I not be done with what I want to accomplish, but I will miss ya'll. My life quest is focusing on getting to know more of the community and the ass kicking rebels. I pledge to cheer people on at least 5 times a week or more. I know that my participation has a direct effect on my performance. It is time for me to continue the trend and get involved more. GAME ON!
  6. I have invited myself to the party My name is rogaecia and this is my 4th challenge. For the last 3 challenges I have played with the adventurers and I think it is now time to spice up my life/challenges and getting to know another guild. Hello everyone MAIN QUEST: HULK SMASH For this challenge (and beyond) I would like to focus on getting stronger, better and faster. Motivation: SIDE QUEST 1: FOOD! I plan on being whole 30 compliant with the exception of 15 meals/snacks throughout the challenge. That will give me some breathing room especially during Thanksgiving. Success Scale (Entire Challenge): Successssss: 12-15 cheat meals/snacks Successss: 16-18 cheat meals/snacks Success: 19-more cheat meals/snacks SIDE QUEST 2: HIIT! I recently decided that I wanted to do more HIIT training with running and body weight work outs. I have downloaded a couple of work outs I want to do and will be working on that during this challenge. Success Scale (Entire Challenge): Successssss: 30+ work outs Successss: 20-29 work outs Success: 19 or less work outs LIFE QUEST: 7 SCENES I'm currently working on a series of paintings based on the 7 deadly sins. During this challenge I would like to have a rough draft for one painting. This is pass or fail. [glad to be here]
  7. I proudly announce: rogaecia's 3rd! Hello everyone- I'm back for my third challenge. I have to admit, I cannot believe last week went by so fast. I am dipping a little low energy wise starting out this challenge. My hope is to rev up as the challenge winds down. My main quest: Shrink my Circumference Currently my waist measures 38" at the smallest point and 44.5" at my belly button. I haven't been much to complain about particular parts of my body because it all needs work. Lately I have been feeling pretty good about my arms and even my butt- something I never thought would happen! However, my "muffin top" just started recently started to bother me. I tried on some cute tops a little bit ago that were longer and the area around my belly button made the shirts look hilly, yes, as if there were hills under there. I would like to bring the 38" down to where my belly button is, sometime in the next 6 months. 6.5" is a lot- but I am sure it can be done. Side Quest 1: Whole30 After much deliberation, I decided that I would aim for the whole 30. I saw a lot of incredible work this last challenge that really motivated me. Also, thanks to incredible Sicil, I have been reading It Starts with Food. The idea of resetting my system is very, very enticing. I plan to formally start the Whole30 on 09/23/13 along with Sicil and also because I have left-over meatballs from last week that contain soy sauce. The breakdown: Week 1: Pre-Whole30, finish meatballs, no alcohol, no caffeine, no added sugar, no grains or legumes. Week 2- Week 6: Whole 30​This quest is pass or fail. Which means: PASS! Side Quest 2: Lift I have been using an app called Lift that induces habit forming. Currently I am working on 9 habits: Be grateful for something/someoneStop and enjoy lifeDrink more waterFoodist (eating well) StretchingExerciseCastor Oil PacksComplete bedtime routine (washing face, brushing teeth, etc)Deep breathing exercises​For this challenge I would like to complete all 9 habits 5 times a week. The breakdown: Grade A: 9 habits/ 5 times a weekGrade B: 9 habits/ 4 times a weekGrade C: 9 habits/ 3 times a weekGrade D: 9 habits/ 2 times a week or less. ​Life Quest: Stay on Budget I would like to work on staying within my budget this challenge. I have budgeted $50/week on groceries and plan to stay on that for a multitude of reasons. The breakdown: Grade A: 6/6 weeks on budgetGrade B: 5/6 weeks on budgetGrade C: 4/6 weeks on budgetGrade D: 3 or less/6 weeks on budget​Motivation: Just kidding! Although Tyler the Creator is hilarious- my motivations are: RockNRoll Half-May 2014 Spartan Race-August 2014 Portland Half Marathon- October 2014 and of course: TO LOOK GOOD. And be moar healthy. [[game on!]]
  8. Hello Adventurers! I'm back for a second go at the 6 week challenge. I am once again pretty excited about continuing on my route to healthier living and excited to be part of this group. MOTIVATION: LOVE THYSELF. My motivation is to love myself. That encompasses being able to genuinely and lovingly celebrate my successes, embrace my faults and not give up on the person that has been there 100% of the time along the way: Me. My self-esteem is in the dumps due to a lot of things and I'm done feeling so poorly about myself. This is for me. This quest, the desire to be better, stronger, healthier, lovelier; it's for me. My Main Quest: I would like to continue to lose weight. I have a goal of reaching 170lbs by July 4th, 2014. In order to reach that goal, I will need to lose about 46lbs in about 11 months. I believe it is a very attainable goal. The Missions: Mission 1: EAT IT!In the last three months, I have had great success eating a cleaner diet. During the last challenge I was able to drop 14#'s. Here is my progression: I lean more towards Paleo than any other diet, but I still have my weekly day off. My biggest nemesis is beer. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we love our brew. I can't see myself ever cutting beer out completely from my diet. I actually don't like cutting things out at all. I have learned about myself that once I cut something out, it becomes the source of obsession for me. I like having the option to eat whatever I want and make better choices instead. That feels powerful. My Getting Clean mission will be to continue developing my healthy eating habits. Mission Rules: One day "off" per week= A Two days "off" per week= B Three days "off" per week= C Four days "off" (or more) per week= D Mission 2: MOVE IT!​Aside of diet, the best way to lose weight is by being active. Last challenge I learned that I can get a little bit over-zealous when it comes to goal-making, so this time around I am KISS'ing this mission. Eligible activities will include anything worth more than 100 points on Fitocracy. Mission Rules: Being active 5 days during the week= A Being active 4 days during the week= B Being active 3 days during the week= C Being active 2 days (or less) during the week= D Mission 3: LOG IT! I think that the biggest reason I joined NerdFitness and the challenges is for accountability. I like having to share what I am up to. During the last challenge (and through my journey to lose weight), I have learned that I get better results when I log/jot/write/scribble down what I am up to, especially those times when I don't want to be accountable. My mission is to update my comings and goings weekly on my challenge thread. Mission Rules: 6 Weekly Updates= A 5 Weekly Updates= B 4 Weekly Updates= C 3 Weekly Updates (or less)= D Life Mission: SAVE IT!​In December 2012, I got in a car accident and totaled my car. Since then, I have been riding public transportation, which is pretty awesome here in the Portland Metro area, however it is usually a lengthy commute to and from work. I am currently trying to save money in order to buy a new-to-me car. Realistically I know I will probably not be able to save more than about $120 in six weeks, but here is to hoping that it is more, after all, this is a challenge. Mission Rules: $120 or more saved= A $90-$119 saved= B $60-$89 saved= C <$59 saved= D
