  1. Alternate title: Fix it with Shovelglove. Just a heads-up: I make no promises. I might not run. I might not shovelglove. I might not even post much. I'm getting over a mystery illness that has left me weak and out of breath. I assume I'm post-Covid, but I don't actually know. Today a friend replaced a gas fitting in our house and I helped him rearrange his storage unit. Last year when I helped him move I was much stronger than him, today he is much stronger than me. It was more than a bit disheartening. As I'm building back from less than zero I'm
  2. Book: Water Also known as the Tale of Tzippi and the Too Many Tags I am returning to the Rebellion after a long battle with a demon of depression. The dark spirit swept in as I was weakened by becoming a mother. I am doing better now, and am just beginning to practice Tai Chi, which (along with the fine spring weather) is inspiring me to respawn here, as a monk. One goal under each bending style is a constant habit, one-two one-time goals under are straight up success if done. Thanks for the help refining my foals, @sarakingdom Goal One: Plantbending
  3. Boy has it been a year. There was a point last year where I really felt I had my fitness identity figured out and I knew what *I* needed to do for success. But I had some mental health and relationship issues to take care of first and that blew everything else out of the water. It's been really tough to get my head back in the game, so much so that I had completely lost track of what was starting to work before. This year has brought a few ups, and many downs. But my head is finally in the game and I feel ready to make some progress. I think I've blown enough of the cobwebs off of my fit
  4. Hi! I am new, I am a nerd, and I need to lose a ton of weight and get into shape! I want to fit into more clothes and I want to be able to run around with my (so far yet-to-be-created) kids and match their energy levels. I am interested in routines or programs or skillsets that will put me in the fantasy bad ass mindset. For instance, I am super interested by shovelglove. People even post shovelglove scenarios on YouTube so that your routine is sort of like RPing! Also, the thought of me being a hammer wielding badass battle babe is really enticing. I'm also interested in doing arc
  5. I over-committed on my adulting responsibilities and it's kicking my ass. I thought about not doing a challenge this time around but I know that is just a recipe for disaster. I need to find a way to do both. Here is what I will not do: Give in Allow life to put my priorities on hold Set myself up to fail Set placeholder goals that don't move me forward Here is what I will do: Focus on things that I can control given my time constraints Set reasonable goals Ace this challenge Create incentives to go beyond my reasonable
  6. Boring Backstory Progress is not linear. We've all heard this before; we know it's true. The challenge is in accepting it. I've really been struggling the last few challenges. It doesn't feel like I'm making progress but habits are being reinforced, attitudes are changing, and mindfulness is becoming easier. The GoRuck that was to happen at the very start of this challenge has been cancelled. The next event is the 5K Milk Run at the Minnesota State Fair. So it's time to switch gears on training and start running. I have been travelling a lot this
  7. Challenge was revised June 16. I've let myself get soft, mentally and physically. I don't know what to do about the mental aspect, so I'm going to tackle the physical aspect. I've let my belly balloon to 36.5 inches (93 cm), I'm going to work it back down to a more reasonable measure. Seeing as how I'm a teacher and I have no class for another nine weeks, I have time to tackle this. Step 1: That's my wheel, I'm riding! Ride my bike, off road when I can. (In the middle of an amateur race you'll hear racers yell 'that's my wheel' as they fight for a dra
  8. Have I used this theme before? Ride Eternal: if not eternal, then at least four times a week. Wander the Wasteland: Start getting ready for this summer's Go-Ruck. Go back to rucking the dog, Shovelglove or other resistance training at least twice a week, mobilize and stretch the bastard that's my back. McFeasting in the Halls of Valhalla: Warboys eat beetles and lizards, not sweets. I'll quit eating sweets (again). I won't beat myself up if I keep it to one variance a week. Are You a Blackthumb? Catch up on maintenance and upgrading of bikes
  9. Backstory I have not been seeing the progress I’d like. As far as fat lost, I’ve gone a little backwards. Overall I am making better food choices but I am just not consistent with it. My variances have been too frequent and too large. I keep undoing any progress I have made. I’ve got a solid workout schedule in place but diet is 80% of the success. And I am not succeeding in that area. So this challenge will focus on diet. I’m not giving up on the workouts. I still have 3 planned events for this year that I need to train for. But it’s still early enough in the ye
  10. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES In keeping with tradition, when Jothra arrived at his hut back on Lodbrok, one of the Old Men of the Rebellion was already waiting for him. The novelty of their sudden visits had long since worn off, so Jothra hung his jacket on the Old Man's pointy-hatted head, and started installing the coffee maker he'd found in a cave, guarded by a gnome or a hobbit or something. After a few moments of flailing his way out from under the jacket, the Old Man spoke. "I hope you've had fun wasting
  11. It is really hard to find GIFs of this show. After yet another harrowing adventure, Jothra heard tell of a tropical island nearby. It sounded like vacation time to him! He used his ever-growing prowess on the bike path through time and space to check the place out... ...only to find it in a permanent state of 1930s-ness. It was like being stuck in a TV adventure series. No rest for him! Donald P. Bellisario first proposed Tales of the Gold Monkey in the 1970s, telling networks that a 1930s adventure show would delight and thrill audiences. He was repeatedly turned down.
  12. I’ve debated over and over how to start this log, and, to be completely honest, I still don’t know how. Introductions have never been my specialty, but I suppose I could start by telling you a little bit about myself. I started my Nerd Fitness journey in October of 2014. I had just moved into my first apartment with my boyfriend and was ready to get myself on track. Or so I thought. I wasn’t happy with how I looked, my recent-ish weight gain, lack of strength, and incredibly sedentary lifestyle. During a google search, I came across an article of Steve’s - I don’t remember which one
  13. I'm Back!!!!!! Oooookay, sooooo.....things happened........some bad, some good, some totally INSANE and I had absolutely no focus past week 1 of the last challenge. So I decided to just put my attention on what was going on and lurk NF. Because I never want to completely leave here, you guys are too important. And it was so awesome that you guys kept an eye out for me. Now hopefully......things are settling down, weather is getting nicer, and I can start making sense of the resulting chaos. Time for a new challenge! Harley's 1st Mission Mace work continues. I smashed my 416 rep goal an

  15. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Seconds after Jothra had picked up the ratty old journal and re-entered his house, the rain started pouring in buckets. Damp and unfortunate, sure, but hardly foreboding. Jothra was a fairly skeptical person, despite having spent quite some time in a place with cardboard-winged flying people and extant dinosaurs in top hats. So when he found the journal full of descriptions of strange creatures, he was about to dismiss it outright. Until he found a page about a portal. According to the book, Jothra's Rebellion-provided home was located
  16. Aaaaaaaand here we are. Brand new year, brand new challenge. Time to come out with guns blazing!.....or bats....maces......crossbows, whatever suits your fancy, and gets you motivated! For me, this challenge, technically this year, and my ultimate epic quest can be summed up in one sentence......... To train and eat with a purpose. And by train I mean mace work, running, lifting or whatever I put my mind to in this coming year.....do it, and do it with enthusiasm......with conscious thought, and with reason and intent. Last year kinda fell flat, but part of the reason for that was b
  17. I will absolutely continue with the story element here, because I enjoy it. I will, however, save it for the beginning of the challenge on Monday. In the meantime, here are my goals and whatnot! 1.) Main Fitness Quest My three goal-achieving-type-little-goals-that-add-up-to-a-bigger-goal-goals: All scoring assumes i.) Mine, shovel, chop, and hoe except on S Days (Saturdays, Sundays, and Special Days). Shovelglove! I will shug for at least 14 minutes per weekday. I feel so much stronger since I started doing this three months ago that I have trouble believing it. I poke my traps a lot
  18. Jothra opened his eyes, immediately regretted it, and closed them again. His head felt a pain unlike any known form of pain. He decided to just lie here and hope he didn't get eaten while he waited for the thudding headache to subside. He heard a weird snorting noise nearby. It didn't sound like any of the slurpasaurs or dromeosaurs he had been getting used to. Despite his aching everything, he took a look. He blinked once or twice to make sure he wasn't seeing things. "Oh, great," he moaned. "Just great." Was it some kind of zombie? It was green and disgusting, w
  19. For this challenge I'm going back to basics, back to the most effective program I've tried. To be honest, I believe it's effective for me only because I've followed it consistently, whereas anything else I've tried has been hampered by exercise ADHD and a lack of follow through. Here's the program: On Monday, I'll do this On Tuesday I'll do this On Wednesday I'll do this On Thursday I'll do this On Friday I'll do this On the weekends I'll do this In other words I'll also do some of this And this Or this
  20. Hello friends and Adventurer brethren! I am back for my second challenge since going MIA for a bit. I did my last one in the Ranger guild, but I have decided that my goals this round are more suited to the Adventurers. And I have decided, for the first time to really vibe my inner nerd and go for a theme. That theme is Harley Quinn because I think she is a bad ass, and can take down her opponents with a smile on her face. She is also my main fighter on Injustice. Goals: 1) Hammer Training / Lifting workouts: I am taking up my mace (aka Harley's Mallet) for this
  21. July 30, 2016. Wausau 24 Mountain Bike Race - 6 hour category. Goal: Top Ten. This is not me. This has never been me. I've done a lot of bike races in the last 27 years. Literally hundreds. I've never podiumed. Never won a prize. Last year at Wausau 24 I went out hard, but I never really pushed it. I was riding for fun, for the challenge. Had I pushed it a little harder, I could have ridden another lap and that would have put me in the top ten and the race podiumed and gave a nice prize bag to the top 10. This year I am going out hard. This year I'll be prepared. GPP: This time
  22. According to my initial timeline I expected to reach my goal weight by the end of this year. That won’t quite happen and I’m OK with that. But it’s the last challenge of the year so I want to make it count. I need to channel my inner super hero and my inner super hero is none other than the mighty Wonder Woman. This challenge begins now. My main Quest is the same as before. I am still pursuing my original goal to reach my goal weight of 160 or some particular bodyfat % (to be determined at some date closer to actually reaching goal weight). In addition to losing those pounds
  23. The time of season’s change will be upon us soon. Winter is coming. We know not exactly when but winter is long and brings with it many perils. I intend to be well prepared and well-armed. I seek health and happiness and no White Walkers will get in my way. In order to find my health and happiness I have decided to align myself House Stark. Starks may not have an easy job but they fight for what is worth fighting, they fight their own battles, and they stay the course even when things get tough. Main Quest: I am now starting my 2nd year of challenges and I have 2 main Quests.
