  1. A blow requires follow through to produce power. I've never properly followed a training plan approaching a race, but working towards my first full marathon I can't afford to slack off. Inspired by awesome women, yet again. Goal #1: Marathon training 3x/week Following the Jeff Galloway plan, with walking intervals. Goal #2: Meal prep, continued This worked really well for me last challenge. Goal #3: Support the training Multiple things here: Stronglifts 1-2x/week (1x if I have soccer that week) Would also like to hit 1x/week active a
  2. Meesa finds the basics (Heads and Shoulders, Knees and Toes) [Level 7] So after all the things that happened through the last 2 challenges I have a new job. I am midway through my first week (which is in the challenge break week) and I want to start right to continue well. 2 things that are important to not is that I am starting a bit over again and that means a pretty decent pay cut until at least June; and although the hours are technically 830-5 it is expected that you work overtime to get your work done (as such they have a policy one Friday a month if you've worked ~15 minutes overtime
  3. Hi Everyone. (feel free to scroll to the bottom for the real goals) Time for a proper introduction. I've previously posted in the Assassin's forum but this challenge isn't very assassin-y and I probably need a but of a focus reset. My real name is Diana - I'm coming up on the big quarter century in January next year and to be honest I'm having a bit of a freak out. I've kinda been floating along through life mildly successfully but not overly. Early last year I changed jobs and immediately went backwards in kinda everything - my health started to get worse; i started yoyoing with my weight
  4. Hi Everyone You won't have seen me around the challenge boards for a while. My life gets very insane during the middle of soccer season. Plus I go into winter hibernation and have no desire to do anything beyond my normal routine. The other things is that most of my goals become about not conceding goals and winning game which is very much out of my control and are therefore hard to stick to and very depressing when I'm being strict with myself. (I'll put some background at the bottom of this post) I've managed to keep up my soccer training (with a bit of time out for a cold; managed not t
  5. Hey, what's up Nerd Fitness squad? I first found this lovely website in August, but I have not yet undertaken a six week challenge. I figured now is as good a time as ever, so here I am! A little about me: I love singing, dancing, reading books, playing soccer, playing instruments, and learning about subjects that interest me, like history, other cultures and languages, and English. I love to help other people improve their lives, and I get a lot of personal enjoyment and fulfillment out of striving to better my health. A side result of my committment to living life to the fullest is tha
  6. Meesa Fixes Her Weekly Routine [Level 5] Right so this time I’m going with a slightly clearer method of tracking things; going for a spreadsheet and screenshot kinda deal - rather than text posts. Goal 1 - Consistency I’m going to track everything into my spreadsheet. Split into 2 sections ‘Life’ and ‘Health; Life is things like doing washing; getting my morning routine right; shopping on time and these are weighted at 1 point. Health goals are things like eating healthy meals, exercise etc and most are weighted at 2 points. I’ll need to clock up around 10 points a day to pass an
  7. Meesa avoids beating up the grass [Level 4] So the soccer pre-season is finally here; so I am getting 2 really solid training sessions + a game of indoor a week in (for an idea of timing - this challenge will take up most of pre-season and end right at the start of the regular season). I am going to use this opportunity to focus on the general ‘life’ stuff that should make fitness and soccer easier. Proposed outcome - a consistent; organised and healthy lifestyle off the pitch; so I that when I am not at work I can be focussed on the soccer outside of that time. Proposed method - I a
  8. Meesa Sweats through the Antipodean Summer. [Level 3 - Again] So my last challenge didn’t go so great. I got derailed by some serious work stuff. Really looking forward to trying again. Its summer here in Aus so temps are around 35-40 c so sitting on the couch gets a sweat up. I plan on using that to kickstart everything. Soccer pre-season will start sometime in Late Jan/Early Feb Main Quest To get back on track to improving my fitness and soccer skills; and to start the new year at work with a new attitude and new opportunities. Goal 1. Body weight I will be working on my squat ju

    The Off Season

    I'm admittedly coming in late to this challenge after a very intense summer of training. Because of this I plan to have this thread serve as a longer battle-log style thread with some moderate goals and some general keeping track. After the Ultra Beast this September I'm planning on taking a bit of an off-season until the start of December. I'll still be training and eating well, but with a decidedly different focus and less pressure. In fact this week I've decided to do nothing I don't want to! And I'll get back to real life in earnest next week. Upcoming Events: Soccer Season - starts 9/
  10. Meesa Gets a Clean and Clear Run Up To Christmas [Level 3] So my first two challenges have been pretty interrupted; by injury and by shitty life things. I’ve had a really bad run the last few months. Speaking of runs; I still have two left from my last challenge - although running; especially not distance won’t be a focus of this challenge/ 16th November City2Sea - 15km 23rd November Health.com.au Spring into Shape 3 - 10km Main Quest To have a pre pre-season before the soccer club pre-season starts and the Australian summer gets too hot. To be working on the power and abilities that
  11. All right, another challenge. Sorry I was late with my summary of the last one, but, the time away was amazing! We will keep this one simple! Starting Stats 154 lbs at 5'7" but stupid scale (checked on 4 different ones) says 36% body fat due to 31" rib cage supporting a large chest. New goal is to go from 35" waist down to 30" by my birthday in October. Balanced Mind - I am stressed about being self employed as it makes it harder to get a new mortgage in a new province. I also am hating my FitBit as it shows me how little sleep I am getting in the 8-9 hours I am trying to sleep. I res
  12. Hey guys Soccer is going to be starting up here soon, and the conditioning is gonna be hard (as always). Every day for a couple weeks at the start of the season, we have two-a-days. In the morning, we meet at our fields, and get warmed up. We then do a 1 mile run to some other nearby soccer fields, and do a core/agility workout. After that, we have another mile run (keeping in mind these miles are at 85%-95% intensity), followed by a stair circuit.(we take a couple minutes to rest between each station). We then run back to the soccer fields, and do a sprint workout. Our fourth mile is back to
  13. Main Quest: I've always struggled with fitness, especially in terms of running and endurance. I'm not very strong either. I'd like to change that and build some muscle while becoming more comfortable with running. I don't have specific main goal in mind besides just get more fit, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to them. Missions: 1. Complete the beginner body weight workout 3x a week. (/6) [MWF] 2. Run at least 1 mile every day. (/36) 3. Bike to/from soccer field (5 miles total) and practice soccer for one hour 3x a week. (/6)[TTHS] Sunday will be a rest day. Life Ques
  14. Good evening/morning mates "whichever hemisphere you live on". Wannabe pro footballer "soccer, mind you". Still young with a lot of training to do. Since its football, I teamed up with the scouts hoping of increased endurance. Goal #1 Run! I get a chance twice a week to train outside which I'll use to run and sprint. 6 weeks = 12 running sessions. A 12 B 10 C 8 STA: 3 Goal #2 Improve leg muscles. In order to maintain balance and power in soccer I need a good base "have you ever seen Cristiano Ronaldo's thighs?" Three sessions per week dedicated to leg muscles. Total 18. A 18 B 15 "yay co
  15. Hi, Starting off my battle log tonight. I am 22. I work as an administrator a a hospital (for now) currently this is casually and shift work included. Trying to get a permanent role with normal hours This is my most recent picture. I live with my housemate J (female) who is into yoga, is a vegetarian, does lots of yoga. And my boyfriend 'Soro' Also with my dog Bu and cat Misha (who's a hussy, ran away before vet appt and got pregnant!). I have started Primal eating, and I lift weights and play women's soccer. I play defense always and love it. I can't attack at all. I have started yoga,
  16. Welcome everyone! Are you ready for a challenge? The forums are amazing and addicting so be sure to reward yourself with a little reading when you have completed your daily workout ... don't get sucked into reading the forums all night though ... you need your rest too! Main Quest: Lose 3% body fat - that is about 6 pounds and will put me under 150. I really need to get in the habit of working on something every day. So with that said: Quest 1 - Stoke the magic cauldron - good food in the cauldron equals good spells - spend 150 min each week planning and preparing healthy meals - less s
  17. Hi everyone, My name is Robin, I'm a 45 year old artist and puzzle solver (account reconciliations) and currently just over 150lb at 5'7" ... but the scale says my body fat percentage is 36% as a female and 22% as a male. So I either need to work on the percentage or transform into a man??? My highest weight (aside from when I was carrying my son 19 years ago) was 180. I was in a dead-end relationship and stress eating instead of working things out. Now I'm back to being a soccer and volleyball player, a boot camp lover and I have a handful of DVD's such as P90x, Insanity and FitBrigade
