  1. Hello So my last challenge went so well I'm almost nervous to start a new one because that's a hard act to follow. So let's keep it simple 1. Exercise 6 times per week including 3 runs 2 log all food and stay at or below target calories 7 days a week 3 I think the Portuguese habit I was trying to establish last time is pretty solid so I'm not going to track that here. Instead, goal 3 will be to cross off one substantial to-do list task per day - so that's sonething like a tedious admin chore, a blog post idea or a job that needs doing at the allotment. Daily.
  2. I didn't get around to a wrap up last challenge and I'm not going back. *pretend I found the Edna Mode gif " I never look back darling, it distracts from the now"* Zero Week was rough. Kids and I all had allergy attacks and mine turned into a sinus infection/bronchitis. Luckily kids bounced back fast, the COVID test was negative, and I'm quickly improving with antibiotics. Run Run 3x a week, working towards a 30 minute 5k. Saturday mornings are reserved for long runs (1 hour or more). We're trying to decide where we'll be for Thanksgiving bu
  3. Critical Role: Campaign 3 starts tonight!! So it's fitting that this challenge is inspired by Critical Role related media. I often play lofi or jazz videos on our TV. It's a good compromise when Pumpkin wants to 'watch something.' He likes the music but after a couple minutes, he starts playing with his toys because there's nothing happening on the TV. He calls this one "purple music." Critters who haven't seen Campaign 2: I don't think there are specific spoilers here but it does feature a character from Campaign 2. The character says random things throughout th
  4. Rule #2 - When you join, you're in for life. I joined NerdFitness over 10 years ago. While my interaction with the NF Community has waxed and waned over the years, it's always something I've carried with me, and have been happy to return to. Now I find myself at the end of one journey and the beginning of another, and I know that the habits and lifestyle I build here at the start will shape the next chapter of my life. I just finished a 4,500 mile self-supported bike tour of the United States. From May to August of 2021, I rode my bicycle from my home in Central Virgini
  5. Hi nerds I haven't really sorted out in my head how this challenge is going to work. For a start, my next race is in 3 days time, before the challenge starts, so I am just trying to keep calm and crosstrain between now and then, and for the next 5 weeks, I guess I'll just do whatever the husband is doing in this book I'm reading. How come Steve never tells us about this good stuff? Probably subscriber-only content I suppose. No wait, there has to be a better plan than that. Um... So between now and Saturday, rest legs, do arm and co
  6. Hello, fellow challenge-goers! In this challenge, I’m again working on my bedtime routine and sleep habits. I have a long-ingrained habit of trying to squeeze extra time out of every day, and in fact, of imagining that I can somehow make time magically appear by ignoring the clock. I am such the Hermione Granger in this way! Unlike Hermione, however, I don't have a magical grandfatherly wizard to give me a time-turner. In reality, my attempts at time-turning have led to sleep deprivation and schedule disruptions, and that, in turn, causes problems for me in terms of fitness, b
  7. I'm jumping back on the bandwagon after a third child and the pandemic (dads gain weight with kids too!). I'm trying to write some kind of character to represent myself into this quest so thing stay fresh. It's my first time trying any roleplaying story/ fan fiction so I'm looking forward to it! 1. Nutrition-Eat clean as much as possible. I'll do my best to keep a log here. 2. Fitness-10k steps and at least one challenge from NF 3. Mindset-Remind myself each day that perfect is the enemy of good by working up to a full 1-2 pull ups from a dead hang by the end of this chal
  8. I am now officially post-hike and post-holidays after my awesome hiking (and campervan) holiday (see my Progress Woot thread). A tricky time here as we are back in lockdown and will be for more weeks and I am conscious of how post-hike blues can put me in a hole. So I need to focus on the 'things I learnt on the trail' and try and keep just a bit of that trail fitness. So what is it that is so enjoyable about an extended hike? The simplicity of each day. You know what you have to do (get to the next campsite) even if you may have obsticles in the way - that ridge wal
  9. Goals Level 5 (reach 185lbs or less for a week) Second gym day each week Run day each week My goals line up with living a more active life for the winter months. I want to ingrain my workout habits at my new gym so I can easily keep them up when it’s harder to get outside. I am also paying more attention to how long meals last me—and sometimes find I am not getting hungry for dinner at all (but usually eating a little anyway). I want to be hungry again for dinner time, so that just means stopping my meals a little earlier or cutting out anxious sn
  10. Time for another challenge: Lots of goals, probably too many.But the sun is shining, and I'm pumped and ready so let's so what happens: Thanks to @milythael for the challenge set up idea Fitness Strength: Exercise : Kettlebell press Baseline : can press 30# bell three times Strength goal: press 30# 4 times, 5 for bonus Plan; Follow ETK for presses with 25# bell, test with 30# on week 3 and 5 Award: 1 point for strength for 4 times, 2 points for pressing the bell 5 times Exercise L-sit Baseline ??? test and video on week 1 Plan F
  11. We're still in the week leading up to this and I am usually of the school of thought that says you should work through the off weeks, but I am definitely taking a week off to recover and aiming to be as fit as possible when the challenge proper starts. I'll come up with some goals later in the week depending what I can cope with. At the moment I'm not feeling bad at all *crosses fingers*, Mrs is a tiny bit worse but also not terrible and Flyer, as a teenager, shows no symptoms at all. For someone in my age group, sex and age I would have been at about 4% risk of
  12. Some housekeeping before the challenge: I changed my icon. I needed something new that reflects the music implied in my name. What better than a singing Pokemon? The pic is of my new PopSocket, as the old one broke after 3 years of service. It felt especially appropriate as this is my favorite workout shirt: Since I've been running consistently, I'm adding the scouts tag. Hi Scouts! I'm Mezzo, 30-something mom of 2 (Pumpkin 3yo and Sweet Pea 9mo) building a new life in a new town with my husband, Bard. Current Major Goal: Run a 5k in 30 minutes.
  13. Ahoy! Late to the party, but better late than never, right? The optimism at the start of my last challenge quickly deteriorated into bad habits and unhealthy coping mechanisms as the stress of finals and studying for the bar was just a teensy bit more intense than I expected. Ok, it was way more intense. I was pretty miserable. But I dragged myself across the finish line and took the bar. And then the funniest thing happened. Instead of eating like garbage and drinking too much because I was stressed about the bar, I ate like garbage and drank too much to celebrate being don
  14. I'm back. It's been a challenging year, but I'm working on looking forward instead of dwelling on the past. Goals are few and short with the hope that they will be achievable: Weight 157.5 .... I am using WW+ right now as my tracking app. The goal is to maintain a positive points balance while also tracking honestly. Do my first (since 1998) pull-up, following @Steve's pull-up progression plan. Finish my Run Across America Summer Splash with 150 KM That's it. Few bells and whistles. I'm getting ready to go back to teaching normal, in-person
  15. Greetings program! . . . wait Alright let's get to it! Goal 1 - RUNNING! Just signed up for the Oakland 2022 Marathon!!!! Got to figure out a training plan but first we have to keep the running habit happening We are looking to run 3 days a week with distances of 3 to 5 miles during the week and 5+ on the weekends. We are also signed up for a 5K on Sept 12th which should be a good test Goal 2 STRETCH To keep from having trouble running - we're going to try to do 3 days o
  16. I have struggled for years with depression, lack of self esteem, and lack of motivation but I am ready! I actually have exercised 3 days already! I have to exercise & focus even on days I feel really down..etc. Male Age: 34 Height: 5'1 Weight: 192 My main goal for this 5 weeks is to lose 10 lbs My ultimate goal is to be healthy, but also there is a walking track near me..I would like to be able to run around it without losing my breath. I am a little bummed that on Saturday and Sunday I exercised (30 min each on the bike) but today
  17. Getting back to the grind so to speak... Goals are simple: 1. Keep my sodium to around 2000mg, I was never given an exact number but I am personally aiming to keep it below 2000mg a day, I will need to keep myfitnesspal tracking again I stopped recently but should prolly make sure I am still within my desired range. Max I am allowing myself a day is 2300mg. 2. Keep my anger in control, it has been bad and I need to curb it good luck me. Going to therapy for this. 3. Get more active, we bought the ringfit game for this, so hopefully I get around to doing it mor
  18. Hello fellow challenge-goers! After taking a bit of a challenge break, I am returning for this new summer 5-week challenge. And this time, I am going to actually follow the instructions and limit myself to 3 goals. After having achieved some of my previous goals (wahoo!), these are next-level for me. I'm excited to be at a place where I get to focus on these, but they are also some things that have been pretty hard for me, especially the sleep habits, so we'll see how this goes. GOALS 1. GO TO BED! And in general, improve my sleep habits, including
  19. In the last few years I have a history of starting a challenge and not sticking to it. My last challenge was a part 1 of 2 to get back in shape to run an ultra marathon. Well that race was last weekend and I ran my ultra. It wasn't because I was good at following the challenge, but keeping up my run streak (today is day 416) and focusing on some longer runs to get ready to ultra. But I can tell I am fatter, slower and older than when I ran my last ultra 4 years ago. I want to qualify for Boston marathon someday (BQ - Boston Qualifier). I know the basics to get closer. So I wi
  20. Oh god, is there a new challenge already? OK: Still trying to learn the dance from last time Choose a poem and learn it by heart Bike adventure - ride my new bike from here to Cambridge and back. Done! 10k run on the 23rd - be prepared! Then revert to one long, two short per week Eat sensibly - paleoish and use some sort of portion control That'll do.
  21. Well here we are again, hoping this is not another case of insanity, doing the same things over again, and expecting a different result. I feel like I always start these challenges with the best of intentions to update regularly and keep with it, but it always fails for one reason or another. Usually it's the simple fact of trying to do too much all at once. So we're going to try things a little differently. We're going to give myself grace, and wiggle room, and we're going to keep it simple stupid 💋. I always feel guilty, because I want to cheer others on an
  22. 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
  23. I am on a journey to relieve my stress. Whether it is from life or from work. Here is my quests. Eating more healthier: working on incorporating more healthier snacks and healthier foods in my diet. Food tracking: tracking my food to see what I have to work on more More workouts: getting off the couch and working out more. In the gym or at home. Study nutrition and fitness: to gain more knowledge to make my journey more easier and one day getting certified. Digital detox more Doing more relaxing things: after a stressful work day. Coming home to do a
  24. Well,, after 3 rounds of steroids and antibiotics im on the mend and ready t get back in the saddle. So I had a really nasty bout of infectious bursitis that torpedoed my ability to lift or run and had me walking like Bob Dole. Now after enough Prednisone to lose a Kentucky Derby I am back. Struggling with some psychological issues as well. I don't like to make too many details public but the images I have been using in writing and art have been a dog running to the end of its chain and a emptied tube of toothpaste. Enough waxing philosophic its time to post some goals.
  25. Only 2 goals this challenge! Run Never drink (alcoholic beverages) alone Well that's cheating! So i need rules: - Only drink when there is someone over that is also having an alcoholic beverage (excluding the wife cause she would kill me) - Run: 3 times a week minimum, 35K per week minimum
