  1. I have drank about 8-10 cokes a week for a while. In 2011 I stopped drinking cokes for a few months & lost about 15 pounds from changing nothing else but drinking no coke. I want to cut cokes out for at last the whole 3 months of June, July, & August. I will stick with water, milk, and occasional sweet tea.
  2. I used to drink a lot of pepsi Max every day but decided to migrate to a caffeine free version to aid my anxiety. As far as I see it, if it's sugar free, caffeine free and helps to curb my craving for something sweet, it can't be all bad. Am I wrong? Some people seem very against anything with artificial sweetners so I was wondering what the general consensus was here.
  3. So here I go again. Wow, it's been a long time. I'll summarize some major life changes: Getting close to a one year anniversary with my girlfriend! Over a year at my IT job Been off my medicine (depression, anxiety) for over a year So now that the good is out of the way, on to the less good. I got really out of shape again. After a photography-related accident, (fell off a cliff) I could not walk for 6 months. Needless to say, health and mental outlook suffered. I've been walking again since January, so time to respawn, reload, and destroy this challenge.

  5. Hi All, It has been quite a while since I last challenged myself here at NF and I feel like it's time to write my activities down again. Backstory I was running, lifting, and eating fairly well with NF’s massive help back between 2013 into some of '16 when my back (already bad) gave out and running was taken off the table. {Mind you, just writing that made me think to myself that "running was taken from me" which implies that a good deal of my resentment is still keeping me pinned down to what used to be.} So that is why I'm here again. That and I love this community! I gai
  6. A Little History, Baby. (taken from my Respawn thread) 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
  7. So my new years resolution was to start being more active, eat better and get off the soda for good but I don't know where to start. I have the worst time committing to a workout routine and I can't resist the temptation of fast food and soda. What's the best way to kick my bad habits and lose the pounds.
  8. Guess who's back?! (No, not Slim Shady....) It's been at least 6 months since I last took part in a proper challenge (holy crap, it's been so long!). I realize this one is coming a few days late, but I've had all kinds of shit going down lately and I'm slowly catching up. There's a lot to fill you all in on, but I'll do my best to give you as brief of a synopsis as possible before moving forward with my challenge goals. For those who don't know or remember me - HI! I'm your friendly neighbourhood Ranger-Cyborg who has a hankering for adventure, crafting
  9. Let's do it. I have been trying to get in better shape for a while. I used to be more active but a lot of people say that. It is hard sometimes to remember where I used to be in many aspects of my life. I want to be more reliable physically, increase my endurance and strength and become more capable physically and mentally. There are so many resources out there and I want to use them efficiently and NF is one of those communities I want to be an active part of. i'm going to try to keep up the theme of 'official /technical reporting' in my challenges, mostly as a creative exercise.
  10. The No Soda PVP Challenge (Other Noxious Beverages may be substituted) I am throwing down the gauntlet in personal challenge to any and all nerds who have a soda habit and want to kill that damned sucker! Note: If your nemesis is another beverage you want to kick, you can play, too! Just make the necessary substitution in your post. Soda addiction is THE major obstacle to my weight loss goal at this point and I am creating this challenge out of sheer frustration. I resist for days, only to eventually succumb to the combined allure of cold wetness, sugar, and caffeine. And the temptations w
  11. Greetings! I'm proud of myself, I did really well during the Jan 4-29 challenge and I've formed some good habits by sticking to my goals last month. One I am really proud of is no soda! I need to keep breaking bad habits this month. Here are my challenge goals: Diet: start cutting out other sugary drinks - by last week of challenge consume none Diet: start limiting processed foods - 1 meal/day Paleo Fitness: work out 4x/week with at least 2 days of yoga each week Level Up Life: Get 8 hours of sleep during work week. I've also been walking when weather allows and counting my miles towards the W
  12. I debated on what to call this thread and what to write here. This isn't my first challenge but in a way it is. See I've been here before. I joined NF back in November of 2012 and did a lot of challenges. Last year I tried, emphasis on TRIED, to comeback and called it a respawn but I don't want that again. Hello 2016, goodbye old threads and old Jonesy! Long Term Quest : I can't get away from this quest until I work my butt off, literally. I can't wait until I conquer this quest but for now, losing weight is my long term quest. Over the course of the next 2 years I want to lose 150lbs. Ma
  13. Every time I get an email from NF, or spend time re-reading Academy articles, I am motivated to dump out all my pop and drink water (doing this right now). This has happened multiple times but I always start pop again very shortly after, Hope it sticks this time!
  14. Priscillia Keeps It Simple Don't worry, we'll get to the dragons next time (I hope)... I'm not feeling very creative in the challenge front, all I want is to cement some stuff from last challenge and take advantage of the gorgeous weather while I sort through some life/adulting crap. For the Soul Take a walk, run, bodyweight workout, play in the jungle gym, just SOMETHING outside once per week 'Cause being cooped up inside sucks. It's actually pretty and decent temperature wise, so I want to go outside. It'll also bring back some habits from a previous challenge last year (before
  15. THE DARK LADY PRISCILLIA Will become a total BAMF in life and profession. 'Cause BAMFs are awesome. WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE Where curses get thrown like candy (but we don't eat those, though we could steal them from little kids to make them cry...) and minions fall down like the cannon fodder they are! CrucioImperioAvada KedavraMinionsDistopia CRUCIO +2 STR +3 STA Pain Tolerance for pole classesLeg Raises on non pole days (might add different things later)I shall learn to love the pain! ALL THE PAIN! So during pole classes/Jams, the goal is to tolerate the pain for a few more second
  16. Hi all! I've done a bit with my daily battle log, and it's been up and down, as I try to work out how to get going. You know how in The Fellowship of the Ring (the book), Gandalf tells Frodo about the ring, and Frodo proceeds to sit around his hobbit hole for a few months eating a lot of breakfasts, and even once he truly gets going on his quest, he still spends way too much time chilling with Tom Bombadil? It's been like that. I need a challenge - something I can fail at to drive me to succeed. I need Black Riders running after me. Main Quest: Obese no more. This means losing about 100 poun
  17. As I looked back at my life, I realized that I had never really put in effort. Not just toward fitness, but toward anything. I had spent 24 years coasting through life on my cleverness. But not anymore. Not after what happened yesterday. I was sitting in my comfortable home in the village when I saw smoke rising in the distance. There was way too much smoke to be just a campfire. I started running. Forest fires are terrible things if they get out of hand, and it was up to everyone to do their part to prevent them. Unfortunately, I was terribly out of shape and was panting and had to slow dow
  18. Hi! If sugary sodas are your nemesis, like they are mine, and you are participating in the upcoming 6 Week Challenge, you may want to check out this Player vs. Player (PVP) challenge. Hope to see you there and we can all work on kicking those empty calories out of our diets together, using some friendly competition!

  20. A little under a year ago, my wife and I discovered Soda Stream. The Soda Stream machine is what carbonates our tap water, and the Soda Stream syrups are what add the flavoring. My question is, does anyone know if this stuff is good? Because it really does taste good. And looking at the nutritional label, I see good stuff... 1. No preservatives 2. No high-fructose corn syrup 3. 35 calories per 8 oz glass 4. 8 grams of sugar 5. 8 grams of carbs 6. 10 grams of sodium This seems too good to be true. It tastes better than the brand name stuff, and is relatively cheap. I've gotta know if there'
  21. Hey all! I'm back after getting married and shooting canons for four months! However, the summer took it's toll on me physically and mentally. It was a rough one with all sorts of stress and backstage drama and I developed some unhealthy habits that I need to get rid of, so this challenge is all about fixing those things. Main Challege: Get back on track! -This challenge isn't about any major goals, changes, or anything of the like for me. It's all about evaluation, making small changes, and moving forward. I'm at a point in my life, career, and health where I need to focus and re-eva
  22. My last challenge was less successful that I had hoped. Most likely because my previous goals were not specific enough. This time around I'm going to make my goals SMART and focus on being a kick ass ranger. Goals: 1. It's Paleo, Not Faileo Last few months I've been trying (and failing) to eat clean. I'm about 60-70% paleo right now. I don't eat grains, soy or dairy products, but I enjoy my sweets and booze a little too much. Here's my plan to give up the crap and replace it with stuff that I should be eating. Week 1: Give up soda and replace with water Week 2: Stop grabbing
