  1. So, back in July or August I messed up my left shoulder. Learned my shoulder structure will tend to inflame my rotator cuff if I'm not careful. Lost a lot of mountain biking time, and gained about 15 pounds. Some big-picture goals I am working on: rebuilding overall strength, making time for fun, and eventually losing weight. Fitness Goals: Workout at least 3 days per week, minimum workout: 3 rounds of: 25 jumping jacks 15-second samson stretch(both sides) 10 squats 10 sit-ups 10 ring rows (scaled) 5 ring pushups (scaled) Go snowboarding 2 or more times per week (gotta get my money's worth for the season pass, plus getting to have fun with my kids) Drink 4 or more glasses of water per day Level Up Goals: Record at least one video each week for my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/superbrewers/ While weight-loss isn't my main goal, I am currently 6'8"(203.2 dm) and 247.5 pounds(112.3 kg). I would like to get below 230 pounds(104 kg). I will post measurements soon.
  2. Tiggs86PreppingforPOW Hello All I have been absent from the challenges for quite some time for personal reasons and am in need of a respawn. I believe my previous challenge I had mentioned preparing for a camping trip to celebrate my 30th Birthday. Well in August I, my sister, and three of our friends went to Northern Minnesota and spent a week camping and hiking. Over 30miles and 1500 stairs in 5 days! Here's a photo album: http://s868.photobucket.com/user/Tiggs86/library/30th trip As the Starks say: . Winter is my favorite time of year because that means snow which means snowboarding! Every year when it starts freezing at night I start dreaming about it I'm snowboarding. I think this has already started this year as a few times I have woken up in an amazing mood with my calves & quads sore. I FINALLY get to teach my best friend's daughter (who I consider my niece) how to snowboard! She had to write an argumentative paper for school last year, decided to use it to compare skiing vs snowboarding from an injury perspective, and convinced her mom to let her learn. She turned 13 in October and I was lucky enough to stumble across a sporting goods store that was going out of business early this year. I got her EVERYTHING. The board, boots, bindings, helmet, googles etc. I don't think I've been hugged that tightly and haven't seen her grin that big in a long time. I want to get prepared so I can keep up with running up the bunny hill while she is learning the basics of snowboarding. The tow rope is my arch nemesis and I would rather run up the hill than use the dang thing. I also want to be able to help lift her back to her feet if needed when she wipes out as well as help with balance as she is learning how to get off the chairlift. My final motivator is if there is a powder day (pow day!) and I am not working I can spend the day in my version of paradise instead of getting tired after a couple of hours and frustrated because I cannot will my legs to keep me upright on my board anymore. I get so mad because I want to do more but cannot physically/safely do so. My long-term goals include 30% Body Fat, able to run 5k, and finish my WOC certification. (I only have the Continence portion left to certify in as I've passed both my Ostomy and Wound exams. I am going to wait until after the holidays to schedule and start studying for it.) Goals for this challenge: 1) Go to gym 3-4 times per week. Alternating NF Academy workouts and couch to 5k. 2) No fastfood. I am addicted to fast food. Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, Arby's, Dominoes etc. I don't even enjoy the taste! Going cold turkey is the way is going to be hard but I won't be fixated on "when should I go this week?". 3) Bring Lunch to work 3 times per week . I have a bad habit of getting lunch at work and that lunch is not the healthy options plus I ALWAYS seem to get dessert. Life Quest) Track spending using Every Dollar App by adding transactions the same day they happen. I end up not putting the transactions in then have a purse full of receipts that I toss without tracking. I'm trying to get a budget in order so I can figure out how much extra I can put toward debt. LOOT: For every goal I complete each week I get $5 to use for a body treatment, whether it's LUSH product, facial, pedicure, massage etc.
  3. Hey, all, Beerzerker here, Just signed up for Nerd Fitness Academy last week. My wife's been a member for a while, and I thought I should join in the fun. I'm in decent shape, but want to improve. Currently, I mountain bike with my son during the summer and snowboard in the winter with my son and my daughter(she skis). We live in western Wisconsin, where we've been having a lot of rain recently. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and letting my geek loose a bit. One of my hobbies is making beer at home, and I love the the process as well as the end result. My goal is to get under 20 % body fat. I'm currently at 22 %. I posted my before pictures and stats over here on Facebook: I'm 39 (that number changes in August). See you in the adventure!

  5. So I was going through the classes the other night, as I am kinda new, and thought.. hmm.. I'm kind of a warrior, but strength training won't be my only focus.. I'm kind of a Ranger, but also kind of a Scout.. Somewhere in between is where I really fit.. I hate running, but everything else? Love it... Here's my idea: A class that focuses on other outdoor sports but not running.. maybe sprinkle a little in there occasionally for those that do like it, but skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cycling, rollerblading, hiking (backpacking too) We could be called Juggernauts. We are hardcore and we use sophisticated tools to help us kill it, whether it is a wheeled steed of steel to aid our treacherous path across the lands, or we travel silently like a rogue, shredding new paths in the back-country snow. But then when we can't get outdoors to continue our epic adventure, we maintain top form in the weight room... Yay, nay? I had a whole post written out and it was awesome... then my laptop died....LOL Rebecca
  6. Hello Rangers! This is my second challenge. My first one I focused on recovering from a really nasty ankle sprain, and while my ankle is still not 100% (honestly, it probably won't be for at least another two months) I want to start on my main quest of becoming a kickass viking! To be a viking I'll be sailing long distances (read: running and cycling), exploring wintry fjords (read: snowboarding) and of course getting totally buff. The vikings were known for being pretty awesome sailors. For my maiden viking voyage, I'm going to "sail" from Bergen, Norway to Höfn, Iceland, which is 707 miles. That's not going to happen in this challenge, but I'm going to start putting a dent in it. Goal number one is to run or cycle 2x/week during this challenge. My ship is my legs and my bike! Why not more often than that? Because I have to get out of those Norwegian mountains first! Which I'm going to do by snowboarding! Last year I got in 27 days, this season I want to get 30. I've got 10 days in so far, I'm going to try and get at least six days during the challenge (that's snowboarding every weekend). Finally, vikings are strong, so that's what I need to be. Waving around longswords and shields takes muscles! A friend of mine has used Stronglifts with a good amount of success so I'm going to do that program, starting next week because the gym is closed this week, boo. But that just means that I get to do bodyweight exercises this week! So goal three is strength training 3x/week. For grading I'm going to give myself a point every time I get a workout in, but max out my points per week (because consistency is key!) so, e.g. I can only get two points for running/cycling per week even if I run every single day. No saving up workouts! "Sailing" to Iceland: 10-12 pts - A 8-9 pts - B 6-7 pts - C Less than 6 - Shipwrecked! Navigating the mountains: 6+ days - A 5 days - B 4 days - C 3 or less - Fell down a crevasse! Lifting my sword: 15-18 pts - A 12-14 pts - B 9-11 pts - C Less than 9 - Lost an arm-wrestling contest and had to run around in the snow in my underwear! Life side quest: Professional reading - one paper/week! This isn't really viking-related as the vikings didn't really have, well, paper, but it is something I want to accomplish. Okay well here's to a new challenge! My last one went really well, but I also joined a bit late, so this is my first full-length challenge, and hopefully I can stay on top of it! ------------------------- Halfway point scoring update: "Sailing" to Iceland: 46.7 miles, 6 pts (I am definitely not shipwrecked!) Navigating the mountains: 2 days Lifting my sword: 8 pts Professional reading: two papers End-Of-Challenge point scoring update: "Sailing" to Iceland: 70.2 miles, 10 pts - A Navigating the mountains: 6 days - A Lifting my sword: 17 pts - A Professional reading: all of the papers! Thesis writing yaaaay.
