  1. So, coming off the success of my first ever challenge I'm going straight into challenge #2. My main aim is to get control of my life and health. Easy, it's just 2 things! :-D I started really nicely with challenge one, found a good rhythm at the gym and learned a lot about my eating habits. Therefore... Go to gym twice per week Don't eat if not meal time. Ie not in front of telly, not with board games et Attain Level 3 of nerd fitness diet (No liquid calories <I will allow myself milk with tea, I mean I am British
  2. So I am new here...joined the Rebels for the first challenge. I think the Ranger description fits me, I bike, run, lift weights, and generally want to kick ass outside. Will decide on what I want my next challenge to entail and post accordingly. My life is in transition and I am itching for some real change and stability at the same time. Hey two things can be true at the same time!
  3. There's a power that's underneath And you can't see it 'till you believe On the edge of infinity Ignite by Zedd At the beginning of my first challenge I thought about to go to the rangers or to the scouts, but was to shy to decide it. So i stayed with the rebels. Now I know a bit more about what I want. I join the rangers because I'm interested into Bodyweight training and running. This challenge I will mostly do the same as in the last one: 1. Japanese: My Rosetta Stone subscripten runs out in April 2017. If I do 2 Chapters per week I can finis
  4. I haven't had time to put this together properly, but I need to get this started. I'll revise this post but the basic structure is going to stay the same. Part 1: Stronglifts. I'm going to continue my stronglifts progression at the typical 5#/workout. I did the last month in the morning, but for now I may switch to after work. I can superset chores with lifting for additional productivity and I won't feel rushed. Ultimately, I think this will help out with sleeping more. Goal: 12 sessions. Part 2: Diet. Last challenge, I tracked a lot and monitored the res
  5. Challenge Two ◠"'Don't worry, the dragon didn't hurt me. Turns out I am not even remotely threatening.' She went back to sleep and my ego got kicked in the ass. Leaving the Recruit hall has been nerve wracking and exciting to say the least." ◠☆ Book 1 The Story: Lose 90lbs Main Quest: Lose 20lbs (or inch equivalent) by my birthday, Jan 8th, 2016 ☆ Show Me Your Teeth: 80/20 Primal (37/42 days +3CON | 32/42 +2CON | 27/42 +1CON) *The conditions for the '20' are holidays, dates, friend time, family get-togethers, and particularly vicious PMS/periods Walk It Off: 20min+ walk dai
  6. Greetings! The last challenge (and my first completion -- WoOt!) went really well for me with regards to strength training. I'm far from warrior status, but I'm really appreciating the body weight exercises, hence my decision to throw my lot in with the assassins guild for this challenge! Fitness Goals Main quest:Increase strength! The goals:3 weekly strength sessions, at least 30 min each 3 weekly HIIT sessions, ideally on alternate days from strength sessions Do after-strength stretches! I always do warm-ups, and never do stretches after my regular strength sessions. I'm using this 6WC to ge
  7. Hi everyone, I'm starting my second challenge now, the first was a reasonable success, even though I'm always harsh on myself. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/62304-better-very-very-late-than-never/ A little background, I decided to start worrying about fitness at the start of August 2014, since I was quite significantly overweight weighing about 95kg (210 pounds). I'm 6'3 tall, so that was quite overweight. In the next six weeks, I lost 10kg by eating less (but very badly) and working out almost every day doing relatively low intensity cardio workouts. From mid-Sept
  8. Hi there! I'm Liz and this is my second challenge. I chose Rangers because I'm interested in being all-around fit, without sacrificing one area of fitness to specialize in another. I do need to confess something before I jump into the challenge: I successfully completed my first challenge and met all of my goals, including getting down below my goal weight; unfortunately I have fallen off the wagon this past week. I've been too tired to stay awake past 9:00, have ruined my 4 day rotation diet for food allergy issues, and have blown off all forms of exercise since Monday. I need a reboot. I nee
  9. 9.06.2014 The Main Epic Quest of Anna Laurentina da Mazovia, also known as Igi, chapter 2: Stamina Training The main objective of this challenge is to simply stay fit and physically active suring my vacation time. Therefore, I'll grab every opportunity to become a true Assassin - I plan to sail, run, continue my parkour-ing tendencies, swim, ride a bike and basically jump headfirst into every opportunity my life will offer, all for the sake of developing the neccessary strength and flexibility to really see the world as my playground. And I plan to have lots and lots of fun with it. It is,
  10. 6 Week Challenge (Well... 9 weeks ) Hey so I joined NF a while ago but Uni and a variety of other things happened.. and so I fell out of my routine. Damn! Gained 10 kg and my fitness went downhill! So this challenge is about getting myself back to having better diet and exercise habits. Main quest Get down to 65kg and be able to run a 5k. My method for doing this is: (1) To lose 5 kg in the 6 week time slot, working my way down to my weight goal. I will do this by; a) Not drinking anything aside from water/tea/milk/hot chocolate/pepsi max Making my lunch and eating it at least
  11. The skill of an assassin is what I desire. But never have I truly believed it to be a skill that I might obtain. But now, I am determined to reach my goals, no matter how lofty. And I shall do this through baby steps. My first challenge was all about using my determination to gain momentum, and it was a success that resulted in the loss of six pounds! My second challenge shall be about using my momentum to gain experience. This will require physical prowess, light feet, and a change in my diet. So, without further delay… MAIN QUEST To use my momentum to gain experience and skill, all while
  12. Hi! After three tries at my first challenge, I finally made it! So now I will have a go at my second challenge. So, my main quest is to lose weight. (Being awesome, strong and hot included) This is the reason why I choose Adventurers. (Also, because I like trying new sports out, even if I will stick to running for now). My goal is to weigh 110 pounds. ( I am pretty small, so no worries - still healthy weight for me.) Right now I weigh 140.2 pounds. I lost 4 pounds on my last challenge, so I am hoping to keep that up. (I also lost two pounds this week...does this count to this challenge? ^^
  13. Today's workout was Isometrix- Balance heavily routine holding various Yoga Positions for 45 seconds, taking out the flow and keeping all the struggle of each pose. Six Week Challenge Number II: MAIN GOAL: Build on Good Habits formed during 1st Six Week Challenge This is my second Six Week Challenge on NF, only a week between them. I'll be using this Six Week Challenge to push myself further then last time and continue to cement these new habits into my life. QUEST 1: Finish P90X3 Classic 1 Schedule. This Six Week Challenge will cover the last 5 Main Weeks of P90X3 and the Recovery Week be
  14. Hey Dudes, Man, it's been a long time since my last challenge! Kinda fell off the fitness wagon and had to run to catch up. Without further ado, here are my goals. 1. Get up and meditate for five minutes every weekday by at least 8am. I've been meaning to try to learn how to meditate for ages, and since I started university I've not been great at mornings. Double whammy. Grading Each weekday is worth 3.3%, if I accumulate: 90% 4 Wisdom, 1 Constitution. 80% 3 Wisdom 70% 2 Wisdom 2. Cut out junk food and increase the amount of fruits and veggies I eat, aiming for 5 portions a day. I've got
  15. Hey Everyone! So this will be my 2nd challenge. I'm an undergrad studying at university looking to get a B.S. in biomedical engineering. I originally thought I was going to go to med school and then the difficulty of classes (and the amount of time it takes) hit, so right now I'm exploring options and looking into internships. Anyways with fitness, I've really been thinking about getting into weight training and the more I read about it the more excited I am to get into it. I'm not that sure on how to start, but luckily my school offers a weight training gym class and I'm taking t
  16. I learned a great deal from the first challenge. A week of reflection and tinkering was not enough, so this next six weeks will be about finding a balance that both achieves results and is sustainable. It also addresses the fact that while my health is VASTLY improved, my muscles are still not cooperating enough to work out consistently. Epic Quest: To resolve health issues and return to a less restricted and more participatory life. I continue to be primarily motivated by my children. This quest involves losing weight and getting fit as part of my journey toward optimal health. Challen
  17. It is the beginning of the end. The culmination of an era. The final months. The past seventeen years have all be leading to this ultimate destination, and once it is reached the entire time spent traveling to it will matter no more. It will be the end of an end, and the beginning of a new beginning; in truth, it will be the end of the beginning. But the destination has not been reached yet; the end is in sight, but it has not arrived. Eight months remain. Eight more months of freedom; eight months until freedom. Eight months to finish learning; eight months until the learning truly begins. E
  18. “I am standing here, watching hopelesly how the zombie horde approaches the alley I am trapped in. Sure, everything looked fine when I started running away from them. I’m way faster than these rotten zombies, but see...I made this only bad tun here and now I’m trapped. There is a ladder hanging from the wall of one of the buildings...if only I could reach it and pull myself up! But I can’t. Suddenly, I hear a noise. - Psst, need some help there? I take a glance at the stair and I feel ultimate happiness. #ZAP is here! With some help from them I manage to climb to the stairs and now Iâ€
  19. Hey Everyone! I'm back for my second challenge after slipping up quite a bit towards the end of my first I'm not very creative but I've seen a few people 'theme' their challenges so - why not! X-Men has been close to my heart since I was a kid so it's only fitting that I apply it here! MAIN QUEST: Ditch The Brotherhood and return to The Institute (NF) aka Lose weight and feel better about myself Goal 1 - Don't eat like Blob! I'm going back down the Paleo route with this one because I didn't quite stick it out on the first challenge but I felt the benefits and want that again. Following
  20. The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the 21st Century by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose over the Pacific Ocean. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning. The wind swept westward, funneled into gusts through the artificial canyons of Sydney, Australia. The wind swept across roads and trees, turning south to fo
  21. As a morbidly obese man for as long as I've been a man, it's been my time to change. This is my second challenge, the first one was a little shaky, but I saw results. I can walk further without cramps, have a smaller waist, and am enjoying life even more. Main Quest: I have certain family members that I only see at major holidays; Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas. My main goal is to drop enough weight and gain confidence and stamina and just blow them away at Thanksgiving. I believe that 40 pounds of weight loss will both Shock and Stun them. This breaks down to losing 10 pounds of
  22. WOO! Second challenge! Quickie run-down Main Quest: Weigh 230 pounds by January 1st, 2014. Goals: 1.) 120 minutes of cardio a week. 2.) 80g of protein a day, 1 vegetarian day a week. 3.) BBW once a week. Life sidequest: -1 hour of deliberate religious stuff (meditation, prayer, study) a week. Elaboration Main Quest I need to focus on weight loss, for a bunch of reasons, mainly to make it easier on my back. Also, it's just a number I can use to gauge my fitness, etc. Goal 1 Last challenge, my goal was 90 minutes of biking a week. Some weeks I scraped by, some week
  23. Well the last challenge I did was in March and I'll be honest it didn't end so well. I ended up with an inflammed rotator cuff by week 3 and on lifting restrictions for 2 months after that Taking that into consideration, this challenge is going to be more about rehabbing my shoulder and making sure it doesn't happen again. I usually like to power lift but for this the closest I'll get will be looking forlornly towards the weight bench while doing shoulder exercises. sigh Anywho Vitals : Age: 25 Height: 5'4 (Short enough to work harder but not short enough to have an extra cuteness
  24. I'm back for more! Starting point: I am a tall girl, 5 ft 11 in. Official weigh in - 182.5 lbs (woot woot!) Haven't seen that in over two years! My highest weight post baby was 225 so this journey is going well, a little over half way there! Goal 1 - How Stella got her groove back Sta 2 Str 2 Get back to serious, committed exercising. I was doing work outs 6 days a week. I gave up when things got complicated. Now to get back to where I was and push on when it gets complicated. Goal is to work out 3x per week minimum Goal 2 - Eat well, Live
  25. I finished the first challenge rather cowed... my goals this time will be a bit more reasonable. I'm doing this one as a Scout as I'm very very close to committing to my first marathon, and running better is my top priority. Fitness Goals: 1. At least 5 days/week of good hard cardio. Usually this will be three runs, maybe racquetball or bike for the rest, or a kickboxing class at the gym. 2. Run a 5k at an average of less than 12 minutes 15 seconds/mile. (I need speedwork help as I'm new to it). Food Goal: 3. Drink more water, less soda. No more than 1 soda/day. I do plan to keep up my
