  1. Hi Rebels! Ensi here I'm a 23-year-old Rebel from Finland. I've been around for a couple of years, done a few challenges and found a place among wonderful people. Right now I'm very busy with my studies, so instead of participating in the next NF challenge, I'm going to put up a battle log... Which you're reading right now! I like to keep things simple and short, so here's what I do: - The Sweetest Day of the Week I'm a bit of a chocolate addict. I've been working on it since last summer, and I've reached a level where I can deal with having a small portion of cho
  2. ....always a Jedi? But although I've always been a Jedi, I have been called a grey one and actually had more than one lapse into the void of the dark side. As any great Jedi Master will tell you, the dark side is part of everyone. And emerging from it again into the light is what makes you a true master of the Force, if you emerge again, that is..... Challenge #10 QUEST 1 : Nutrition/Snacking This didn't work out last challenge so I need to change it. Since at the moment I can't really control what I eat, I'll concentrate on quantity instead. Also concentrating on little thing Mission:

    I don't really pay much attention to meals. If someone doesn't remind me I can and often will completely forget about them. I could be doing anything but I'd get caught up and not even remember to eat, or even drink a lot of the time (I'm working on upping my water intake). I forget about meals alot, but I do snack alot as well. When I have meals they're healthy and I don't eat out very often, under once a month. But my snacking isn't so clean, I have healthy-ish snacks most of the time, but I want to improve overall with it. Does anyone have any advice on how I can improve the overall quali
  4. Hi everyone! Time for another NF challenge J I’ve been using my battle log recently, but now I got an urge to participate in a challenge! After a great summer, I’ve found it hard to adjust to going back to my studies. The past two years have been very busy and filled with studies, but this year… I’m having half the amount of courses. This is thanks to me working my bum off last semester, but I realized that this is hard for me. To study less. To have more time to myself. To help me cope with real life (le gasp!), I got an idea: to create my very own super spy identity! I’ve alway
  5. "'this is my fight song, take back my life song, prove I'm all right song... my power's turned on, starting right now i'll be strong, i'll play my fight song - and i don't really care if nobody else believes, 'cause i've still got a lot of fight left in me." MAIN QUEST: Keep it simple, keep it fun, and blast through all the obstacles in my path! Have you played this game? No? STOP READING THIS AND GO PLAY IT AT ONCE. It is obscure and ridiculous and completely heartbreaking when you least expect it and seriously so, so lovely. It is also a story about flipping adversity the bird and
  6. Obligatory Pre-Challenge Brain-Stuffs: I've had a lot of success over my past few challenges, my last one was a bit of a let down because life threw stuff at me but I still managed to overall improve myself I think. However, while I've seen vast improvements with my health, strength and flexibility, I feel like I haven't been seeing much progress looks wise. And while most of my brain is like who cares you're stronger and awesomer, there's that part of me that is like... but summer is coming (here?) and I'd really like to rock out a bathing suit and not feel super self conscious. I know this
  7. So, here is my thread for work between challenges. I'll keep track of any exercises and other work I do between challenges, and ruminate on ideas for the next challenge. So far, I know I'm going to include financial health in the next challenge. Some of the things I'm already doing - limiting how often I buy coffee, taking breakfast bars with me when I'm on the run, etc. But the big thing I'm going to do is try to figure out which bills fall into which pay period, and figure out from there how much free money I have each pay period. And, to keep track of that, I'll use either play money or a
  8. Hey All! This is my first challenge with the Monks! I've had two previous challenges as an Adventurer which were mostly centered around diet. Honestly, this one is mostly centered around diet too, but I've always wanted to join the Monks and now I feel that I can do so with a good conscience. I recently moved to a new town (recently like 2 and a half weeks ago) and in that new town I found a Martial Arts club that teaches Wing Chun Kung Fu and Kali. I've been to three classes and so far I love it! It's a ton of fun, I feel like I'm learning, and the people there all seem really cool. So
  9. My 1st challenge and back story can be found here. Quest #1 - The Morning CALM, Stretch, & Strength Bedtime 9pm. Period. 8+ hours sleep. 1st week - be up by 6:30, practice one yoga pose/technique correctly for 5 minutes. 2nd week - 6:25, yoga 7 minutes, 1 to 2 poses, focus on technique. 3rd - 6:20, yoga 10 minutes 4th - 6:15, yoga 15 minutes 5th - 6:10 yoga 20 minutes 6th- 6:05, yoga 25 minutes 7th - 6:00 - GOAL! Working that early morning routine! Yoga 25-30 minutes. So far that is all I have specifically. I had it all typed up but left it on my computer at work! I woke up Sunday m
  10. Hey Folks, I could use some advice on a habit I'm trying to change right now. I've noticed that I tend to eat between meals a lot, especially when I'm bored. This tends to be a problem especially on weekends. On Friday nights I'll get home from work and fix myself a nice healthy dinner. But even though I'm satisfied from my dinner, I still feel like eating and I have a strong desire to take some snack with me as I read/play video games/whatever. It often ends up that after dinner I keep snacking off and on until 8 or 9 o clock. In addition to the fact that I'm just eating a lot of extra
  11. Never Too Late To Move That Thing Friday night I ran 3.2 miles! That means I'm capable of running a 5K. Good thing, too, since the 5K I signed up for is on the 15th. After that I've got rehearsals, and rehearsals, and even more rehearsals, all leading up to five performances of The Wedding Singer over two weekends - the 19th and 20th, 26th and 27th of July. Then my 45th birthday is on August 3rd, and I'd like to have reached a shiny new low weight by then, especially since I plan to celebrate by going zip-lining! This challenge will mainly focus on helping me to survive that experience
  12. As Albertigog entered the market town of Blackly Downs he got a feeling of tension in the air. For somewhere that he had heard so much about, this was not the busy happy place he had imagined. He tried to start a conversation with several people but was cut short every time as everyone seemed in a rush to pack up and get home. He turned a corner onto another street of stalls where everyone already seemed to packing up even though it was only late morning. Eventually he caught the eye of a baker who seemed slightly less worried than everyone else. “Excuse me, but why is everyone packing u
  13. Starting Point Right now, I am: A college student. 64-65 kgs. On a semi-Primal diet (about 60-40), and reasonably happy with the results. A non-native English speaker (Spanish is my first language, French my second language) Happy that I’m finally doing a second challlenge! Goals 1. Mindful meditation (WIS +3, CON +2) I am currently enrolled in mindful meditation classes, but I have trouble finding motivation to do the homework (which is mostly meditating...). My goal is to meditate for 10 minutes at a time, 4 times a week. 2. Beauty sleep (CON +2, END +1) I didn’t have thi
  14. My main quest is simply to get back to a dress size of 6. I am currently in a 10, so I expect this to take at least a year, but if I can achieve it sooner, you won't see me crying! During this challenge I will be revisiting the goal that I failed 2 challenges ago - No sugar! I will continue to allow myself the mere 2 tsp. of sugar in my daily coffee. Also, there are 2 dates that I will be allowing myself to have sugar. These dates coincide with my sister's wedding. Other than that, there will be NO sugar in my diet for the next 6 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing how much weight I manage

  16. This will be my fourth challenge. And I am more excited than ever. Of course, I'm always excited. Clean slate time. A whole month and a half of possible perfection. It might not be likely, but it's absolutely possible! So without futher ado, here is precisely what I'll be shooting for: 1) Defeat the snack gremlin: (No snacks past dinner, 5/7 days per week) +1 CON +2 CHA He's insidious. A sneaky little jerk. And he's made himself a little too much at home. I started working on this last challenge, when I realized it was really sabotaging my weight loss efforts. I'm giving myself a couple
  17. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Chrissa and I have been lurking around the blog and e-mail lists since discovering the rebellion last September. Up until now, I mainly read Steve's posts and take what I can from them occasionally tossing out a comment here and there. Nerd Fitness has inspired me a lot over the last several months and I'm finally ready to step it up and take my place among my fellow rebels. I've never been very good at joining in but I believe this is going to be the most important challenge for me because it will teach me how to be a better part of a community. You
  18. OK, I'm a snacker, and I read the article on the team snack or team no snack, so I'm definantly on the pro snacks Problem is, I cant tell whether I'm bored and just eat or if I'm actually hungry I know I could pay attention, but by the time I think 'wait, was I really hungry' I'm already finished! We also have LOTS of horrible food around the house (I'm talking rice crispies, cookies and chocolate laying about) so I'm always tempted Is there anyway I can maybe cut down. I'm 5'3" and I eat more than the guys I know! What is a good way to cut down on snacking in the daytime and if I do snack
  19. I had this moment last night where I was mowing down on rice krispie squares that "I" had made with a friend and realized that I needed some help to be held somewhat accountable for my actions. I hope I am not too late to join the challenge. I haven't had a chance to read everything on here but I figured I should jump in asap. Hi, my name is Emily! Background: I am 27 years old. I'm 5'4, 155lbs, and ~28% bf. I am a software engineer at a small company in Ottawa, ON so I sit on my butt most of the day. At the moment I am going to circuit training with my co-workers 3 days out of the week an
