  1. Whilst we have a Facebook group for coordinating meetups, I know some people aren't on Facebook or don't want to reveal their secret identities until they've met people in person... so this is an on-forum place for Scottish Nerds (and those coming to visit us in possibly the best small country in the world) to chat about meet-ups. Whaddya think?
  2. Given the new movie is out and I walk through the streets in which its set every blinking day, figured it was time for a Trainspotting challenge... Plus an excuse for a lot of Ewan McGregor pictures (Kevin McKidd and Jonny Lee Miller are also acceptable). I've got just over a week until my first comp of the year and I'm currently recovering from a nasty hip flexor strain, so lots to talk about. Choose Lifting I'm training four days a week with just a couple of sessions off for the comp. I'm doing okay-ish with hitting the heavy singles but the volume is intim
  3. I thought it might be time that I actually started a battle log for my workouts rather than boring everyone in challenges by wandering off topic. I have a couple of competitions coming up, although I'm waiting to hear about sponsorship subsidies before putting in my entry forms (or next week, whichever comes sooner). For anyone who hasn't come across me before, I took up lifting in April 2013, started competing in February 2014 and I'm heading to my first national championship in September 2014. I don't eat clean. I stress out about the scale (it
  4. I'm going to be a little easy on myself this time around and not set hugely challenging goals, but just ones that need to be worked on! I've got the Four Nations championships on 3 December so I want to be physically and mentally ready. Get my head in the game. My mind is a large part of what's holding me back so I'm going to work through some sports psychology books and exercises to try to change my mindset. I still really struggle to see myself as a good lifter so I need to give myself a firm talking to and start to see myself as others do. Look after myself. G
  5. So it's my first day back to the grind after a proper week of rest following the British Classic. It's not exactly the Camp NF Powerlifting Championships, but I still managed to take fourth in the 63s for the third year in a row. I couldn't have done better in terms of positioning but my second squat was so easy that I'm frustrated about the screw-up with my third. Still sitting around 382 Wilks, which is frustrating. I'd like that easy 400. That nice, round, shiny number. So on with the quest! I'm waiting to have it confirmed, but it's very likely that I'll
  6. Something has changed within me, something is not the same. I'm through with playing by the rules of someone else's game. Too late for second guessing, too late to go back to sleep, It's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes... and leap! Okay... I'll stop with the lyrics! I realised that it's crazy that I've gone so long without a musicals themed challenge! I'm through accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change, but 'til I try I'll never know. I care too much about what people think... I
  7. Hi All! I started here last fall and did pretty well on my first challenge but fell off the wagon immediately in the 2nd challenge. When I started challenge 1 I was unemployed and had a TON of time on my hands. Quickly I got a job but was able to keep up the challenge ok. Then my new job started kicking my ass and winter hit. I continued to lose some weight because I was stressed out LOL But I totally stopped exercising. Now I am gaining some weight back. Then about 2 months ago my SAHP husband got a full time job. This has been wonderful financially but our daily lives
  8. The end of last year was both exciting and depressing. Exciting because I took part in my first international powerlifting championships and depressing because I had a severely disappointing result. Now I need to move on. I need to grab my towel and have a few beers before the jump into hyperspace. Hold onto my (hot yoga) towel Yoga keeps me sane. This goal is short and simple - do yoga at least twice a week, ideally three times. A - 12 classes or 45+ minute sessions during the challenge B - 8 classes or 45+ minute sessions... C - 4 classes or 45+ minute sessions... F - No yoga
  9. A Sassenach in a strange new world! This is my 2nd Challenge and I think Adventurers is a great place to be! My life is in a bit of influx at the moment as I just started a new job 6 weeks ago... right at the beginning of the last challenge. I went through a vigorous 5 week classroom/testing program and it really exhausted me. Still I managed the challenge pretty well. Now I am doing a 2 week on the job training with a temporary schedule. This time around I am aiming for more flexibility in workout choices and times. Looking at my schedule (and my family's ) a week at a time. With the
  10. Introduction: Hi! I am Tina and I just found NF. I am really excited to do this first 6 week challenge and hope to share some great support here! I am married, a mom to an active 11 year old and we live in Oregon USA. I really enjoy walks, biking, hiking, and camping but these are very hard for me because I am overweight and out of shape. I also have high blood pressure that I would like to lower and be off medication. I was recently laid off from a job I had for many years (software company) so this has been an interesting life change. I lost some initial weight because I was not sitting a
  11. As part of a quest to encourage one another, it was agreed that we'd form an accountabilibuddy group for Nerds in Scotland. I'll try to arrange a meet-up during this challenge, but the aim of this group is to know that there is someone who can physically come and kick your backside if you disappear for too long (I'm looking at you, CrackerWatson!). No limit on numbers, but you must be based in Scotland.

  12. Before I am 50: July 7, 2019 I would love to - See Pearl Jam live in concert from floor or back stage - Go surfing with son - Spend three weeks in Italy painting, looking at art and eating - Have my artwork in a Chicago, LA or NYC gallery - Travel to Scotland with husband and friends; go to Glasgow, Little Sparta garden, and Fringe Music Fest - Get my MFA - Hike up Half Dome - Have a big 50th Birthday weekend in Chicago with friends (July 7, 2019 will be a Sunday so a whole weekend just makes sense!) (Work in progress)
  13. So I'm only going to be around for half of this challenge (the first 3 weeks). Then the night of August 15 the boyfriend and I are flying to Scotland and aren't returning until September 4. It's going to be a really epic vacation, I'm so freakin' excited. There are a lot of physical things that we're going to be doing. One is we are going on a 2 day snorkeling trip to swim/interact with seals and basking sharks!! I'm so beyond excited. Then we are going to climb Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the UK. It's not that tall compared to some other mountains, like Kilimanjaro or even Mac
  14. I am an American law student who was accepted to study in Switzerland this coming semester. Classes ended here in December, and start there in mid-February. I'm using my extended break (we usually restart in mid-January here) to fit in some traveling. The best deal I could get on a ticket has me landing at Heathrow at 0600-something on 21 January, and departing at 0700ish on 1 February, which thrills me no end. I've always wanted to explore the U.K. Of course, the rub is that I don't know anyone outside the U.S., and I'm not terribly good at striking up random friendships with people (Mo
  15. Hi there fellow rebels. I’m Alan a 23 year old newly qualified doctor from Scotland, nice to meet you. Today I joined the rebellion and I am looking forward to getting started. I have hummed and hawed about whether to actually sign up to the forums for quite a long time now, but on reflection of my past attempts to lose weight and aim for goals, I realize that a good support network is the most important factor in maintaining focus, especially on those bad days. I stumbled across NerdFitness a few months ago when searching for information about body fat percentage. I read the amazing artic
