  1. Hey Doodlies, how are you all doing this lovely fall? I've been away for a while, but now I'm back. And I'm really feeling like starting another pvp challenge. Don't know what a Doodlie is? No worries, you're still welcome We're a weird bunch that have been around NF for I think 5 years, maybe even 6. We worship the Great Yak, talk a lot of smut and just have fun accomplishing our goals. We divide yourselves into two breakfast items: pancakes and waffles. And sometimes French toast (or Flip Bitches) if our numbers are great. To get us started I'm proposing a simple scavenger hunt. In the past we've done really elaborate ones, but the tracking was a pain. Each team gets one point per: -10 minutes of exercise (this can be strength training, running, elliptical, taking a class at your gym etc.) - Number of different freggies (fruits and vegetables) you've eaten in a week. Potatoes and beans count too. Grains don't count. If in doubt, just ask here! - 30 minutes of doing something of self improvement. For example, but not limited to: reading a book, learning a language, doing an (online) course, meditation, practicing an instrument... If you're not sure whether or not something can be used for this challenge, just ask and we'll decide together Links Want to join? Sign up here. Format Points sheet (copy for your own team to secretly keep your score) We start October 23st Tagging former Doodlies here. Feel free to tag others I forgot! @deftona @Shello @Björn Járnhamar @DrFeelgood For some reason it doesn't let me tag more people, so I'll do it in the next post.
  2. Hey Doodlies, and welcome to a new challenge! This challenge is only open to existing Doodlies, you know who you are! If you're not a Doodlie, I'm sorry this is not for you. This time we're playing hangman. But no ordinary hangman, it's Doodlie hangman! We're having two teams again: Pancakes and Waffles. Sign up here if you want to join. So how do we play? I've got a list of challenges here. Each challenge will earn your right to guess a letter. There is no taking turns. The faster you finish your challenge the sooner you get the right to a letter. If you think you know the word: too bad, you still have to guess each letter separately (you'll just be guessing them right). You work together on completing the challenges. For example: one of the challenges is meditate for an hour. You meditated 10 minutes and one of your team mates meditated 50 minutes. You now have completed this challenge and earned the right to a letter. You win when: You're in team pancake The other team will pick a word of x letters (the words of both teams have twice the amount of letters as there are teammates in the team that guesses the letters). The team that guessed the most words at the end of the challenge has won. If a new team member wants to join mid challenge, or if someone wants to leave the challenge, they may do so when there is a new word to guess. We'll start February 11th (Monday) Until then: - What do we need to change about the rules to make it more fair? - Do you know any more challenges we can add? - What challenges need to change to make them all as equal as possible? - Anything else you like to add?

  3. Welcome all Doodlies*!! *I'm sorry - this is a closed group, open to all Doodlies. Once a Doodlie, always a Doodlie. You know who you are. There is much Doodlie lore, with a long and smutty history. We've always dreamed of our own island where we can escape the drudgeries of life and come together to be with our people. Alas, it has been found! Land ho, Doodlie Island exists! Unfortunately, the Breakfast Wars have been rekindled. The pancakes and waffles landed on opposite shores and must battle for the rights to the island. What will we do? Who will win? Ready to Play? Sign up here The Battle for Doodlie Island OK, I am hoping everyone is up for a competition this challenge. If not, the battle can be postponed to some other challenge. But if we are up for it.... here is the gist. There are also a few holes in my idea to fill in during week 0. Orange tiles are pancakes home base, green for waffles. This is a battle for all the tiles on the map. Every 10 minutes of exercise yields 1 unit Cardio units = defense on existing tiles Strength units = offense on other tiles yoga/stretching units = range attacks (range of 3 but extra units can be added for each additional tile) You can not take over another tile with a range attack. Each blue tile has a basic defense of 1,2, or 3 determined randomly The Doodlie Castle has a basic defense of +10 and is immune to range attacks. Each team works to accumulate points/units and then decide where to place them. The map tiles will change color as we battle it out. I don't know if this is a daily battle, weekly, or something in between. Do we take turns? Do we apply points all at once? Also, the map has a few gaps. Throw your ideas out for location names and we can fill in the rest of the map.
  4. Who is up for some "friendly" competition? Like any accountability group we'll support each other and cheer each other on. But we also like to play. Just to shake things up. If you want to join go to this spreadsheet, and put your name on it. If you are an existing doodlie, put your name in the "doodlie" column. If you are not a doodlie (yet), pick any doodlie and put your name in the "newbe" column. Easy right? We start the game on May 28th And what games will we play this time, you ask? Good question, if I might say so. We're going to do a scavenger hunt. I will make a list of items you can collect. Like [drink 1 liter of water] or [sleep for 8 hours] or [eat 5 servings of freggies] The team that has collected the most items at the end of the challenge (June 26th) has won eternal bragging rights over the other team! As for the couples: if you are a newbe, you can ask your doodlie anything. If you are a doodlie, you'll give your newbe advise, kicks up the behind, and haze him/her in any way you see fit.

  5. Hey Doodlies, You know who you are. Are you not, or have you never been a doodlie, or do you not know what a doodlie is, I'm sorry, this thread is not for you. We have been on many adventures together. We have battled great evil and each other. We've been covered in batter, hit by smut and rolled around in shenanigans. But we've let our brother- and sisterhood slide. We've been neglecting the awesomeness we had together. I know, a lot of you are pressed for time. You've been hit by life, or are just working really hard on your personal goals. That's why I wanted to do a light challenge. I will give you a theme and an assignment every week, and you can respond when you've got the time. Nothing big. It can be posting a meme, an inspirational text or sharing pics of your pets/kids/plants. I'll post the first theme on Monday. Are you in?
  6. Hey there everyone! Who is up for a challenge? We are going to do a scavenger hunt again. Just because it is fun You can find the rules and the "items" you need to collect here. You can sign up here. We start Monday February 19th Who's in?
  7. My City of Ruins: A select few of you may remember me. I came, I did some challenges, I dropped some weight, and then life started life-ing me and I disappeared. In early 2015, I weighed 255 lbs. I joined a gym, started eating better, found NF, and in around 18 months, I'd just about scraped under 200 lbs, got myself a nice suit, and life was going... better. But interest started to flag, and a combination of work-related stress, family dramas, injuries, illness and dark depression took hold, and I went under the ice for a while. It started with some niggling aches and pains, which, after an extended period of doctor and hospital visits, were diagnosed as calcific tendonitis in the rotator cuff, and bone spurs in the neck. As I attempted to get those under control, my wife lost her mother, and my own mother's dementia gradually progressed. She suffered a series of falls and spent a large chunk of the early part of this year in and out of hospital for weeks at a time. We're getting some support with her care now, which is helping greatly, but the dementia is only going to worsen as time passes. With all of this in the background, I completely neglected my own well-being, quit exercising, ate like crap, didn't look after myself mentally, and spiraled into a dark place. I could feel my health worsening as my weight increased, to the point where everything was becoming uncomfortable, and I felt constantly sick, tired, and sore. At the end of July, I made the decision to rejoin the gym and go completely cold turkey from my arch nemeses, chocolate, cakes and fizzy/energy drinks. On my first visit back to the gym on August 1st, I weighed myself. 257 lbs. Back to square one, literally. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $100. The Rising: There have been two weigh-ins since I rose from the ashes. September was 248, October 244, meaning 13 lbs lost, against a backdrop of having my car smashed and written off, and picking up some bumps and bruises and a mild case of whiplash in the process. Gym attendance hasn't been quite as consistent as I would have liked, but forcing myself to go even inconsistently is better than where I've been. Other than a two-day spell where two of my kids had back-to-back birthdays, the food choices have been pretty solid. I managed the best part of ten weeks completely cold turkey, had a treat around the birthday bashes, and resumed progress afterwards. The goal is to get back to completely cutting off chocolate, cakes and fizzy drinks between now and Christmas, and then take it from there. Further On (Up the Road): And so, we beat on, boats against the current. There's no grand theme, no complex strategies, no delightfully colourful spreadsheets (this time, but they're itching to make a return), just some simple goals. Get to the gym, three times a week. This goal should now be a little more attainable for me, given that a couple of changes to my regular schedule are in the process of happening. As of Sunday, my church has switched to Saturday evening/Sunday morning services, which means not having to rush home on Sunday afternoon and do a quick turnaround to get back at it on Sunday evenings. Gym goal is to keep pushing the cross trainer level up, notch by notch. It's currently sitting at 20 mins at level 12/13. I'd like to get that up to level 15, and start working on building up a second run to end each session. During my first run on NF, I was starting and ending with 20 minute runs. I can get back there. Food goals, see above. My only restrictions are cutting out the chocolate, cakes and fizzy drinks. Other than that, I generally can be trusted to eat sensibly. Mental goals: stay positive, stay connected to my friends here, stick to my daily bible reading plan. The rest will take care of itself. What's coming up in this period? We're entering a busy new season in church again as we prepare for our annual giveaway, which of course means the return of the panto. SGFS regulars will know that I regularly get roped into performing in the shows, and this year will, I've been informed, be no different. Over the past couple of years, I've played (off the top of my head), a hyena sidekick in the Lion King, Augustus Gloop (Willy Wonka), the Tin Man (Wizard of Oz), Anger (Inside Out), Shere Khan (Jungle Book), Cogsworth (Beauty & the Beast), Mr. Potato Head (Toy Story), a couple of World War 2 soldiers, a Jersey Boy doo-wop singer, and a granny tranny in a Queen "I Want to Break Free" tribute. This year's panto has just been announced, and it's Shrek. No idea who I'm playing yet. Secretly, I'm hoping Fiona... Now, as a wise man once said, "Let's go to woik."
  8. We are The Doodlies - aka Accountabiddlydoodlies - aka Miscellaneous Beings Intent on Losing Weight* *This is a Closed Group and only open to current and former Doodlies - you know who you are. Please PM for interest. We Doodlies have experienced a lot of change over the years, yes plural, that we have been together. In the absence of a clear PVP challenge this time around, and the fact that I encountered the Great Yak on my recent travels, I was struck by a bolt of inspiration... It's time to return to our roots. I dug around and found the original accountabiddlydoodlies thread for your reading pleasure. We Doodlies haven't been as active recently so let's start with our original credo: I intend to lose some weight in a healthy, sensible way this challenge. Do you also intend to lose some weight in a healthy, sensible way this challenge? Then let us kick each other's rear ends for the next six weeks so that we stay on track! I think we can forego the introductions so instead of the original questions let's start out with some new ones: 1.) What is your main goal this challenge? We started off joining this group as beings intent on losing weight. Some of our goals have changed. Where are you now? 2.) What do you most want accountability for and what type of accountability would benefit you the most? How can we do to help you achieve your goals? 3.) Are you interested in a PVP this challenge and if so, what type? This, as always, is optional in addition to our regular merry band of supporters. Want to sit this challenge out or do you have a great idea for some competition? Or should we do something completely different?
  9. Sometimes, a network gets it completely wrong and cancels an incredible show because ratings are beginning to falter. As time passes, interest slowly renews in the darkest recesses of the internet, growing into a clamour, and eventually Netflix cobbles together a reboot. In the grand tradition of these shoddy and shameless rehashings... The Arrested Development of SomeGuyFromScotland A select few of you may remember me. I came, I did some challenges, I dropped some weight, and then life started life-ing me and I disappeared. In early 2015, I weighed 255 lbs. I joined a gym, started eating better, found NF, and in around 18 months, I'd just about scraped under 200 lbs, got myself a nice suit, and life was going... better. But interest started to flag, and a combination of work-related stress, family dramas, injuries, illness and dark depression took hold, and I went under the ice for a while. It started with some niggling aches and pains, which, after an extended period of doctor and hospital visits, were diagnosed as calcific tendonitis in the rotator cuff, and bone spurs in the neck. As I attempted to get those under control, my wife lost her mother as my own's dementia gradually progressed. She suffered a series of falls and spent a large chunk of the early part of this year in and out of hospital for weeks at a time. We're getting some support with her care now, which is helping greatly, but the dementia is only going to worsen as time passes. With all of this in the background, I completely neglected my own well-being, quit exercising, ate like crap, didn't look after myself mentally, and spiraled into a dark place. I could feel my health worsening as my weight increased, to the point where everything was becoming uncomfortable, and I felt constantly sick, tired, and sore. A month ago, I made the decision to rejoin the gym and go completely cold turkey from my arch nemeses, chocolate, cakes and fizzy/energy drinks. On my first visit back to the gym on August 1st, I weighed myself. 257 lbs. Back to square one, literally. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $100. So tomorrow will be four weeks clean. I'm treating this like the addiction it is. One day at a time, one decision at a time. This is my life now. Still, though, one thing was missing. And I've known all along what it was. My support system here at NF. Let the reboot begin.
  10. AKA - Wonder Woman Goes into Battle Welcome to the third installment of this summer's Wonder Woman blockbuster challenge series! There isn't much new here but I'm continuing with what works and tweaking the rest. I have two primary goals - to prepare for this fall's HammerRace and to defeat the nasty scale. Naturally, my focus is more on the former and less on the latter. Hopefully taking care of one will take care of the other by default. If that doesn't work I might just take my hammer to the scale and that will be the end of it. I am rolling Week 0 as well as the Week 0 from the end of the challenge into this challenge to make another proper 6 week challenge. This format works best for me and the last challenge reminded me of that. During this challenge I have a family vacation planned from August 9th - 14th. The kids and I will be camping in the Rocky's and the Badlands. Then another trip the 25th-29th for the Minnesota State Fair. Power I am currently at the beginning of week 3 for my 5/3/1 lifting program. I won't actually have any time during week 0 to get to the gym since my first vacation starts mid week. But my goal is to hit the gym twice per week. Workout A is DL and OHP, Workout B is Squats and Bench. Grace I need to get 3 other workout sessions in a week, ideally each and every one of these will involve a hammer. This 6 week challenge will go up to just a few weeks before the HammerRace. I need to get comfortable doing some running with the hammer as well as just building up strength wielding the hammer. This will likely come to fruition with 2 Sledgehammer Shenanigan TM workouts a week, and then supplement with a short hammer run or just some tire slams at home. I am allowing some non-hammer substitutions. I will still benefit from some running without the hammer or maybe some rucking. While on vacation there will be a lot less hammering and more substituting with non-hammer activities. Wisdom I basically stopped logging food sometime during the last challenge. I'm still logging into MFP but I'm not doing anything. I really liked not having to worry about logging food during my Whole30 and I'd like to recreate that. I still use MFP for meal planning purposes but with the right choices I don't have to worrry about the MFP drudgery day to day. So I'm going to try a modified Whole30/Paleo so that I don't have to log food. The following is my attempt at making this SMART but really these are just guidelines. Unlimited - Paleo approved foods are allowed in unlimited quantities - as determined by appetite of course Controlled - There are some exceptions to Paleo that I am allowing but they must be in controlled amounts to still allow for not logging.. This also includes some calorie dense paleo approved foods. These should be in controlled amounts only... approximately 1 serving of each daily although exceptions are allowed if I can make a case for the choice. nuts, dairy, peanut butter, even some low processed whole grains Limited - These are foods that, in general, aren't condusive to my goals but it's also not good to be that restrictive and these foods are not necessarily bad enough to be variances. They are like variance wannabes. Other grains... I guess that's the whole list. I'm sure I'll add to this as I go. Variances - Last challenge I limited sweets to one per day. I get that not being restrictive is good for the soul but this was jsut too much. 3 variances are allowed a week. ice cream, pizza, sweets, fries... the list is long and we all basically know what is on this list. Some exceptions and fine tuning: This is all about being able to make good choices day to day so these are really just guidelines. I'd like to stick to it closely enough to be successful without logging food and without being too restrictive and allowing for some indulgences. Wonder Wonder is going to look a bit different this time. My sanity no longer hinges on making the most of my summer. The end of August and into September is always the most hectic time of the year and the transition from summer into the school year always makes me a little bit crazy. Qbert starts high school this year as well as cross country and any number of other acedemic clubs. Peach is properly in middle school and dance classes start up soon too. The class I teach starts in a couple weeks as well. Although this semester I am back to just 1 class and it is my favorite and easiest class. So Wonder here is focused on being organized and prioritizing so that I have time to relax as well. I really really need to start up my bujo again as there are lots of important dates to keep track of and I need to keep up on the crochet so I can organize an auction in October. This goal isn't very SMART as is but I think it will become more concrete as I go.
  11. I wasn't particularly looking forward to this challenge until I realized I could start now and roll the 2 week break into a proper 6 week challenge. 6 week challenge activate! Power I'll be starting Cycle II of 5/3/1. Spreadsheet is here. I'll be lifting approximately twice a week with 2 big lifts each day plus some accessory work, usually determined on the fly. Grace I'll be continuing with Jeff Galloway's running principles. The theory is every 2 weeks I test my 1 mile pace and use that to determine the training walk/run pace. Each week consists of 2 short runs and 1 'long' run. Every 2 weeks that long run will include a retest of the 1 mile pace. As part of Galloway's program, there are also 3 walk or cross train days. 2 of those cross train days will be my lifting days, the 3rd will be a hammer day. That leaves 1 rest day per week. I just completed my 1 mile test run this past weekend so I'll do that again in 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and then on the last weekend. I am hoping for improvement each time. The hammer workout will be some combination of Shovelglove, tire swings, or a short hammer run but the hammer will be neglected no more. Here is the tentative workout schedule for the challenge: Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday off run 15-20min lift run 15-20 min lift Hammer 1.5 mile off run 15-20min lift run 15-20 min lift Hammer 1.5 mile* off run 20-25 min lift run 20-25 min lift Hammer 2 miles off run 20-25 min lift run 20-25 min lift Hammer 2 miles* off run 25-30 min lift run 25-30 min lift Hammer 2.5 miles off run 25-30 min lift run 25-30 min lift Hammer 2.5 miles* Wisdom My current goal is to be somewhere between logging food on MFP and intuitive eating. I have been logging food, with a 'goal' in mind but I'm not that concerned about the goal as long as I am making decent choices and eating when I am hungry. I usually go most of the day eating primal, paleo + dairy, and then add some grains to dinner. I'd like to have grains a bit less with dinner, either by having it less often, choosing better grain choices, or just smaller portions. Restricting them altogether isn't ideal. I tried tracking variances last challenge but the line between a variance and making a choice was getting blurry so I'm abandoning that. I do have some guidelines to follow: Plan the week's menu ahead and batch cook. Meal planning must include some veggies with dinner Eat all the freggies! Ideally no more than 1 meal without freggies a day but overall just keep track and aim for at least 3-5 freggies a day Edit for SMART goal: Get at least 4 servings of freggies a day. limit sweets. A little ice cream is OK some nights, maybe some chocolate, but stay in control and just don't go overboard. Edit for SMART goal: No more than 1 sweet treat a day. Focus on how food choices will make me feel. Will it satisfy my hunger? Will it make me feel bloated and full? I don't know why I make goals like this. I never stop and think about this when I am deciding on foods. My intention was to integrate some intuitive eating so I am not relying as heavily on the rules but it's not working. Wonder Does anyone else feel suffocated by time? It just keeps moving and there is no stopping it, whether you have something to hold onto or not. The summer is quickly coming to an end. This challenge ends a week and a half before the kids start school again and during that time is our family vacation. So the 6 weeks of this challenge mark what's left of my summer. I just don't want to squander it. I have a lot of crochet projects to work on for an online auction fundraiser I am planning but I also need to be present for others and take some time to relax. I've started a list in my bujo of some summer projects and to-dos. I'd like to look back the summer and have something to show for it and have experiences we can remember. EDITED: This goal isn't very SMART either. Now that I am consumed by crocheting for this fundraiser, I am not making much time for anything else, fun or adulting. I need to get back to filling in my bujo and making plans. Goal: Cross 3 things off my list each week. Do at least 1 fun activity per week with family - with the exception for the 1 week I am on my own.
  12. Power. Grace. Wisdom. Wonder. Guess who's back........!!! . . . No, not Slim Shady! Wonder Woman is back. The semester is over (or will be as soon as I finish grading) so it's time to pick myself up and get this year started properly. Is it coincidence or destiny that this coincides with the Wonder Woman movie release right at the beginning of this challenge? I will be taking an actual Week 0 this time around. I stil have a week of grading to finish up and I could really use a week off after my Whole30 last challenge. Power It's time to get back in that gym and lift some heavy shit and put it back down. I'll be starting up my 5/3/1 program again. I have a spreadsheet I developed the last time around on 5/3/1. I'll repopulate with my new numbers and share it here. The plan is to hit the gym 2 days a week and do 2 lifts each gym day. Day1: DL and OHP. Day 2: Squat and bench. I will use Week 0 to test 1RM. Grace Time to run. I didn't make the cut off to register for the 5k at the MN State Fair but we'll find some substitute plus I need to build some stamina for the HammerRace. I'll be using Jeff Galloway's running principles. The theory is every 2 weeks I test my 1 mile pace and use that to determine the training walk/run pace. I'll test my 1 mile pace during Week 0 so I can start in Week 1. Each week consists of 2 short runs and 1 'long' run. Every 2 weeks that long run will include a retest of the 1 mile pace. As part of Galloway's program, there are also 3 walk or cross train days. 2 of those cross train days will be my lifting days, the 3rd will be a ruck day. That leaves 1 rest day per week. Week 0 will consist of 1 ruck and the mile pace run. The schedule may change from week to week but basically the plan is something like this: M - Ruck T - Short run W - Lift R - Short Run F - Lift S - Rest S - 'long' run Wisdom This will be my food goal. It won't be that strict. I will use what I learned during Whole30 and find out what works best for me for a more sustainable paleo diet. This might be a certain number of variances a week, or counting freggies.. And I need to determine which Whole30 resticted foods I want to allow daily and which will be restricted. I'll likely just report my daily food log here and work it out as I go along. I will be logging food on MFP but I won't have a goal based on calories. Wonder Summer has arrived, at least according to the academic calendar. I have several weekends blocked off already to transport kids to grandparent's over the summer and all their various outings. I do not want to squander the remaining free summer weekends. I would like to plan something fun with the family each week and also spend some time on my hobbies that I have been neglecting. I think this summer I want to focus on some guitar practice and some crochet/quilting crafty stuff. Sims is a hobby too but I'd like to be able to produce something with my time other than a legendary Sim family.
  13. Welcome my fellow Nerds, to this historic event! In the past Doodlies have battled against each other, but now, for the first time we will measure our skills against non-doodlies. If you want to join, you're in for the entire challenge. You can pick an easy challenge for a week when you have a busy schedule, or when you're not feeling well. But you must participate all 4 weeks. Sign up here. So, what are we going to do? If you have any questions you can ask here We start Tuesday. Week 1: 25 April - 30 April Week 2: 1 May - 7 May Week 3: 8 May - 14 May Week 4: 15 May - 19 May
  14. Welcome back doodlies! And what shell we do this time? A battle between the waffles and the pancakes? Or something with the whole group? Let us know your ideas. Even the bad ones, because they can inspire someone else
  15. Welcome back Doodlies! This thread is for doodlies only. If you're not a doodlie, or don't know what a doodlie is, this is not for you. Sorry. So, what are we going to do this challenge? I'm drawing a blank here, but I'm sure that a lot of you have great ideas. Even if your ideas aren't great, just post them here. Maybe it will give someone else the inspiration to make it great Sign in sheet Score sheet
  16. Welcome to the battle between the pancakes and the waffles This fight is so intense, so passionate that it can only be fought by real doodlies What I'm trying to say is: we don't except any new recruits, I'm sorry. Don't forget to sign up for the team you want to join This round we are doing a scavenger hunt. What is this, you might wonder. Well, we collect items. The team with the most items collected at the end of the challenge (namely March 10) has won. What items do we collect? We are going to make a spreadsheet of this. Because we love spreadsheets. An item can be anything from doing burpees to meditate for a given amount of time. For those in the D&D pvp: the challenges I put in for now are the same as the ones you need to level up your skills. This way it's easier to participate in both pvp's If you think of a fun item for the hunt, please share! May the best breakfast item win.
  17. 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 goals when I have the opportunity And the Over/under challenge was created. Keeping my 2017 roadmap in mind, I'm continuing to build on my goals. Where I must set the bar a little lower than I would prefer due to time constraints, I didn't want to just accept the low bar and barely make any impact. I need incentives to push me past the minimum when I am able. But I don't want to set the bar high initially and not be able to reach it. So for each of my goals, I've set an Over/Under. It represents the minimum standard to pass the challenge. If I go over the goal, I get points. If I go under, I lose points. The points mean absolutely nothing but I'm counting on my competitive nature to keep each week competing against the previous and filling this challenge with all WINs. Food Last challenge I won a few days on a technicality. I couldn't 'snack' but I discovered a loophole, eating junk food with a meal. I'm closing that loophole here. For the weekdays (M-R) I am allowed 2 servings of junk food (primarily baked potato chips, dark chocolate, and ice cream). I already plan on having 1 serving of chips with my lunch so that only leaves me 1 additional serving. This may even give me incentive to stop having the chips with lunch, though I don't necessarily think they are a problem. But points! Over/Under 2, +/- 1 point for each serving of junk food. Weekends the focus is on calories. The goal for weekends is 1800, higher than weekdays. But I found last challenge that I didn't always need them. This will be incentive to not use them just because they are there. Over/Under 1800 calories, +/- 1 point for every 100 calories Sleep I did really well cutting late night diet sodas. Some nights I just needed it to get through the list of to do's for the day. I did discover through my bujo that I was pretty consistent with 5 a day. Having late night sodas will still hurt my score because I am sure they will be over the 5. If I can manage an extra one to get me through and stay within the 5, then I'm OK with that. Over/Under 5, +/- point for each soda. I have also been having a lot of late nights working on class prep. This is currently the biggest hindrance to rest. It's also affecting my day job since I have trouble getting up and getting to work on time. If I can be up by 7am, I can just barely get to the work on time. Anything past that and I'm rolling in past 8. Over/Under 7am, +/- 1 point for every 10 minutes Training This one is particularly difficult. I have little time on the 3 days I have class, the 1st day after those days I don't want to do anything. That leaves 3 more days where I find it difficult to give up time doing class prep. I can't guarantee that I can squeeze in 4 workouts. Last challenge my goal included working out for at least 30 minutes. When I didn't have a full 30 minutes I would just not do anything. So I'm counting workouts in 10 minute increments. Since I have little time, intensity will be key. Rather than set the bar lower, I'm just going to make up for the lack of time with more intensity. Each workout will be measured by minutes x intensity*. Over/Under will be 100 units, +/- 1 point for every 10 units. *Intensity is predetermined by the type of activity. I've scaled my typical activities by intensity level. walking 1 rucking 1.5 yoga 1 Daredice 2 lifting 2.5 Running 3 HIIT 3 Sessions with trainer 3 Family As part of my roadmap for 2017, I am trying to be more present. This is both more difficult and more important now that I am so busy. This goal is basically the same as before only I am dropping the family time due to time constraints. I still want to spend some one-on-one time with each person in my family at least once a week. I can get more but I can not substitute time with different people. I have to satisfy one one one with each person before any additional time is counted for the over/under. Over/Under 3, +/- 1 for each unique event. Other Items Finances are still a huge part of my roadmap this year. I am continuing with YNAB but I don't have any goals tied to it at this time. Kitty Jar - still in effect. 25 cents for each great day 10 cents for each OK day, meeting some goals, but not all 5 cents for meeting at least 1 goal 1 cent for a day hitting no goal with some valid excuse 0 cents for lame duck days. I'm sure I've forgotten to mention something I intended to. I always seem to forget something. I probably won't have time to update as often as I normally do and I won't have as much time to follow your fantastical challenges so I apologize in advance.

  19. I debated using a theme for this challenge, something to do with time, do-overs, or epic battles. But nothing quite sums up the extent of the epicness of the do-over that is this challenge. I'd like to just forget 2016 ever happened. I almost could except I have to re-lose the 25 or so pounds that I gained during last year. Last year I let a lot of habits go. Some habits still stuck with me and I worked on some others. I feel like I got derailed but found a detour and I'm back on the road, but a few miles back. I did it once; I can do it again. This year is going to be different. The first step is to re-build some habits. No, wait. The first step is my 2017 roadmap. In order to follow the roadmap, I need to rebuild some habits. That's what this challenge is about. FOOD I'm going to try something a little different this time. My food hasn't been terrible, well OK maybe, but I've been sticking to my batch cooking during the day, and suppers have been decent 70% of the time. It's the snacking that is out of control. So instead of focusing on logging my food, I'll focus on snacking, rather not snacking. The goal for Monday - Thursday will be to avoid snacks. Once I make a meal plan for the week, I pretty much eat the same thing every day. On days after lifting I'll allow either one healthy snack or I can have a larger meal. Saturday and Sunday I'll log food and stick to the calorie goal. Saturday's goal is 1900 calories, Sunday's is 1600. I don't usually eat at routine times so snacking is allowed as long as I don't go over the goal. Friday is a bit of a beast. It's not realistic to avoid snacks on a Friday night but I am eating the same thing during the day as the rest of the week. My calorie goal is 1900 so it'll be something like if I don't snack then I don't need to log anything. If we eat something extravagant then I'll log and can only snack if I stay under the goal. TRAINING Rebuilding old habits. Any workouts count but it has to be 30 minutes, moderate intensity, at least 4 days a week. THE INNER CRITIC My inner critic got really out of hand last year and I don't want to let it happen again. For this challenge I want to spend a little bit of time each day to visualize what my success looks like write out one affirmation a day. SLEEP I'm going to babystep myself to better sleep habits. For now I'll focus caffeine intake. I used to be able to drink caffeine until very late and still have no trouble going to sleep once I decided to sleep. But I suspect now it is having more of an impact than I care to admit. So I'll curtail the caffeine after supper, or after 8pm, whichever is later. I probable need a bigger buffer between caffeine and bedtime but babysteps remember. FAMILY TIME I'd like to be more present with my family and take time to have fun with them. Each week I'll have the following goals: - spend some time one night a week doing some family activity, even if it's just dinner at the table - Spend one on one time with LordShello and each kid FINANCES 2017 is the year of austerity. To get the ball rolling I have 4 tasks to be completed by the end of the challenge: - Start a budget on the YNAB app This is actually done already. I couldn't resist. - Cancel cable We started streaming. - Pay off one credit card - Pay off some medical debt - Take care of that student loan paperwork I've been putting off forever In addition to these goals, I'll be using my kitty jar to track successful days. I'll be using this the entire year to see how it adds up. Quarter - a great day, not perfect, but pretty much hit every goal Dime - a good day, hitting most of my goals Nickel - a mediocre day, hitting enough goals for some credit Penny - a pity penny, for days when no goals are hit but for a decent reason. Some Exclusions May Apply The challenge is supposed to end on 2/4 but I usually end my challenges on a Friday. The last Friday of this challenge is my birthday so I'll my challenge the day before that. One other exclusion is for LordShello's birthday that falls during week 2 of the challenge.
  20. Welcome do Dungeons and Dragons, the Doodlie version. Everyone is welcome to participate By participating you DON'T become a Doodlie, it's just that this game in this form has been invented by the doodlies. A short recap of how we play You start by copying the character sheet and fill it in (see rule book for details on this). After this you put a link to it in your signature, and put the link on the sign in sheet. The name of your character is the same as your name on the forums! This makes it so much easier for the DM's You've got 4 primary abilities. You can level these up infinitive by doing stuff in real life like doing cardio, strength training, meditate or learn stuff. Besides that you've got extra ability's you can choose to your liking, to shape your character. By choosing a specific race or class you gain bonuses for certain abilities, but you're not limited to them. The DM (doodlie master) tells a story. You tell the DM how you wish to react to the circumstances the DM described. He or she will determine, by rolling a dice and comparing the result with the ability that's applicable in that situation, if you're successful or not. For example: You wish to talk to a cute guy in a bar. Since you're a beautiful elf, the DM decides this shouldn't be too hard for you, so she uses a D4 (a dice with 4 sides). (Or the DM decides that this is very hard since you're an ugly ogre and she uses a D100 (a dice with 100 sides)). She looks at your psyche level, say you're level 3. With the D4 you'll succeed by a roll of 2, 3 or 4. (With the D100 by 98, 99 or 100.) The DM rolls the D4 and you get a 3. The cute guy is willing to talk to you. Say you roll a 4, since that is the highest role the cute guy comes to you and tells you everything you wan to know. Or you get a 1, and the cute guy slaps you in the face and leaves. We play from December 5th until December 31st If you want you can post a short introduction in this thread. If you have any questions, let me know.

  21. Who doesn't want to be a Girlmore Girl? But wish as I might, I can't just become a Gilmore Girl. I just don't have the training. For the last challenge of 2016 I am just looking for some handrails to get me to the end of this caper in relatively one piece. I have more healing to do before I am ready to kick some 2017 ass and December usually tries to kick my ass. So my goal here is to set a minimum standard in hopes of keeping my head above water and minimize the damage from the holidays. Don't Eat Like a Gilmore (Don't eat like a dickhead: The Gilmore Edition) No SMART goals here. Just do the best I can with what's available. Most days this should follow my variable daily calorie goal but for those holiday party and travel days it's basically just be sensible. Pick higher protein, less processed food choices. Go ahead and have some treats but keep them to a minimum. I will also keep logging on MFP. I am shooting for a 365 day streak on MFP and I'm not about to give up on it now. The Great Cookie Solution Baking Christmas cookies is a huge part of my family's traditions. In recent years we have made efforts to bake less cookies but even if each person picks 1 type of cookie that is their favorite, we end up with 8 kids of cookies. I don't yet know what the Great Cookie Solution will be but while I am with family over Christmas I need to initiate some protocols to keep the cookie eating in check. Don't Workout Like a Gilmore I'll continue my daily activity goal. Anything counts but I'd prefer to get to the gym for some lifting twice a week but this isn't mandatory. Rucking, yoga, walking, heavy house work, walking the mall Christmas shopping...whatever. Just do something. I've also seen some Gilmore girls workouts where you do different exercises depending on what's going on during an episode. Don't Drink Like a Gilmore I may not be a coffee drinker but I like my caffeine. When I am on holidays or when I am stressed I tend to drink more diet soda than anything else. Drink some water already! I don't know what I mean the goal to be but I'd like to be aware of it and choose water over diet soda a couple times a day. Tie up Those Loose Ends I made a lot of progress on my 2016 roadmap. There are some things that didn't accomplished but for some I've realized it wasn't the right time, others will get migrated to the 2017 Roadmap but there a few I'd like to finish up this challenge Finish the last short story in that book Declutter Declutter Declutter! Post a summary of 2016 accomplishments Complete and Post 2017 Roadmap By the end of this challenge I need to have the 2017 Roadmap completed and posted. Also, in an effort to prepare for 2017 goals I want to use this challenge to track a few key habits Sleep - just count number of hours of sleep Spending - I want to find an app that will help track my spending and my budget.

  24. Deja Vu warning... This is going to look really familiar... My Boring Backstory For those of you catching up, last challenge was a coop challenge where if either I or my cohort, Deftona, failed to meet our goals we would both incur some punishment. This format worked wonders for me to get my shit together and get back on track with following goals and making them a priority. But I am not out of the woods yet. I just about lost my shit over weekend 0 (this is why a whole week 0 is not a good idea for me) so it's painfully clear that these habits need more work in order to make them stick. My overall goal is the same and last challenge worked, so I'm keeping the same goals this time around. This is just back to being an individual challenge. If I miss a workout, I alone incur the punishment. If I go over my calorie goal, I alone incur the punishment. Last challenge was like learning to ride a bike (again) with training wheels and someone holding onto the bike. This challenge no one else is hanging on but I've still got the training wheels on. Food goal will follow the varied calorie goal schedule. I’m allowing for a bit higher calories on weekends and then a few lower calorie days during the week. All the while not restricting myself, particularly on recovery days when I am the hungriest. Since my calorie goal is varied, I have set up tiers for the purposes of determining punishment. For a 1450 calorie day I have a 100 calorie leeway. Anything over 1550 calories is a minor infraction, over 1650 a major infraction. For a 1600 calorie day it’s a 90 calorie leeway. Anything over 1690 calories is a minor infraction, over 1780 a major infraction. For a 1900 calorie day it’s 80. Anything over 1980 calories is a minor infraction, over 2060 a major infraction. Training goal is to work out 5 times a week, preferable 3 runs and 2 lifting sessions but I’m allowing for some substitutions. I’m likely to be joining a weight loss challenge at my gym. In addition to the required 5 workout days, I’d like 1 active rest day. That can be just about anything, going for a walk, catching Pokémon, splashing about at the pool with the kids, swinging a sledgehammer, or even shopping might count if it's active enough. PUNISHMENTS: 1st Dietary Minor Infraction: Add extra sets or miles on top of whatever we had planned for our next workouts 2nd Dietary Minor Infraction: Do the Darebee daily workout (in addition to our normal workouts) 3rd Dietary Minor Infraction: The same as a major infraction Major Dietary Infraction: 1 dairy-free meal and only cold showers the following day 1st missed workout: Darebee Daily Dare, with extra credit if possible, or do it twice Any subsequent missed workout: 50 burpees per missed workout punishments Exceptions: NONE! I won't be making it to the HammerRace so without that trip I have no trips planned for this entire challenge! I am excited for a challenge that I can completely focus on my goals.
  25. Are you ready for this? This is a tandem challenge. @deftona and I both had an abysmal challenge last go around. It was supposed to be the one where we each got back into the groove and made some progress. Rather than an improvement from the challenges before, it got worse, like, super off the rails worse. Our current levels of accountability don’t seem to be enough. We’ve been accountable to ourselves, to the Doodlies, to the entire NF community but for some reason, right now, this doesn’t seem to be enough. Before we can get back to waging war, we need to get our shit together. And what do you do when you can’t do something on your own? You get back up, you phone a friend, and you potentially risk your friendships by causing unnecessary punishments if you fuck up. So that’s what we’ve done. For this challenge we are in this together. We’ve tried challenges with rewards for hitting our goals. We’ve tried challenges with punishments for not hitting our goals and both methods have come up a little short. In order for this reset to work we need more accountability than ever before, accountability2 (patent pending). For this challenge, if either of us misses a goal, we both pay the price. The deets: We each have our own goals but they boil down to 5 workouts a week and following a sensible calorie limit. The calorie limits are tiered so that there is a specified amount that we can go over without incurring any punishment, going over more than that is either a minor or a major infraction, depending on how much over the limit we go or how we go over that limit (depending on whose challenge we’re talking about). Dietary punishments are to be completed the following day. Each missed workout incurs a penalty as well. Training penalties are cumulative and should be completed by the end of the following week. The sexy part everyone’s here for: PUNISHMENTS: 1st Dietary Minor Infraction: Add extra sets or miles on top of whatever we had planned for our next workouts 2nd Dietary Minor Infraction: Do the Darebee daily workout (in addition to our normal workouts) 3rd Dietary Minor Infraction: The same as a major infraction Major Dietary Infraction: 1 dairy-free meal and only cold showers the following day 1st missed workout: Darebee Daily Dare, with extra credit if possible, or do it twice Any subsequent missed workout: 50 burpees per missed workout My Boring Backstory My goals for this challenge are basically the same as the last. I’m quite sure they are attainable and will help me achieve success if I actually follow them, which I am much more likely to do this challenge. The only change is that once the 5K is done after week 2 of the challenge, my focus will change to training for the HammerRace*. I’ll still be training the same number of days and doing the same things but trying to incorporate my hammer, The Negotiator. *I still have not signed up for the HammerRace. As I described at the end of my last challenge, I’ve lost a lot of passion for training. I would feel much better about forking over the money for this race if I actually had some passion for it and was a bit excited. Training goal is to work out 5 times a week, preferable 3 runs and 2 lifting sessions but I’m allowing for some substitutions. I’m likely to be joining a weight loss challenge at my gym. My trainer has mentioned some training session for his ‘team’ on Saturdays’. I’m not really sure what that entails but it may mess up my schedule a wee bit and I want to be able to account for that. In addition to the required 5 workout days, I’d like 1 active rest day. That can be just about anything, going for a walk, catching Pokémon, splashing about at the pool with the kids, but ideally it would include a sledgehammer. Food goal will follow the same varied calorie goal schedule that I started last challenge. I’m allowing for a bit higher calories on weekends and then a few lower calorie days during the week. All the while not restricting myself, particularly on recovery days when I am the hungriest. I have really struggled with food choices recently but I don’t think it is due to being too restrictive. I have just been really lax about snacking when I don’t need to be. I need to break that habit. Since my calorie goal is varied, I have set up tiers for the purposes of determining punishment. For a 1450 calorie day I have a 100 calorie leeway. Anything over 1550 calories is a minor infraction, over 1650 a major infraction. For a 1600 calorie day it’s a 90 calorie leeway. Anything over 1690 calories is a minor infraction, over 1780 a major infraction. For a 1900 calorie day it’s 80. Anything over 1980 calories is a minor infraction, over 2060 a major infraction. Exceptions: I will be on my annual trip to the Minnesota State Fair for 6 days during the challenge. During those days the goals were be turned upside down a bit. I'll still have tentative goals and I'll attempt to track calories but no punishments will be incurred from those goals. Rather, I will set a daily goal. Fail to meet that goal and Deftona has to be punished. Well, me too. Weekly Mantras This challenge is all about a reset and I need to address some of my past behaviors with challenges. Each week will have a specific mantra that captures the ideal I need to exemplify in order to succeed for that week. Week 1: Way of PainTM - This is to kick start the reset Week 2: Prepare and Enjoy - I leave mid week for vacation to the MN State Fair. I need to plan and prep things that will help me succeed while on vacation but I am also just going to enjoy my vacation with some lenient goals for each day. Week 3: Reset and Excel - I'll likely need a mini reset after stuffing my face with foods on a stick. This week will focus on resetting and jumping right back into my challenge goals and being awesome. Week 4: Destroy - this is a full week with no trips, vacations, or excuses to go off the rails. I plan on totally destroying week 4 Week 5: Persevere - I have a tendency to treat Week 5 like a Week 0. That's not entirely bad except I'm pretty sure Def doesn't want to pay the price. I'd like to keep my friendship intact and finish the challenge off strong.
