  1. My ultimate goal is to fit comfortably into UK size 14 trousers. To do that, I need to drop a dress size and I want to do this by losing fat. I feel like I've got a good grip on workouts and food / diet so this challenge is about getting through a stressful time at work by looking after myself and really making me the best sozzielou I can be. 1. Bikini rebellion! CON+1 WIS+2 CHA+2 The #bikinirebellion is a free course by Neghar Fonooni which works on both mind and body. I'll be immersing myself in it and completing the instagram challenges. A = Completed all the days B = Missed a couple of days C = Did the majority of days F = Didn't really keep up with it. 2. Canada! WIS+2 CHA+3 I'm going to be visiting my BFF in Canada this August, so lots of things need planning! A = All planned and paid for B = Mostly sorted, forgot something small C = OK but forgot something fundamental F = Never made it to Canada 3. ACV! CON+2 CHA+2 STA+1 I've heard many great things about apple cider vinegar, so, having weighed up the pros and cons, I've decided to try it out. My goal is to have 10ml diluted in a glass of water twice per day. I'm treating this like a 30-day hard hat challenge for the whole of the 6 weeks. Pass = Never miss 2 days in a row Fail = Miss 2 or more days in a row.
  2. My ultimate goal is to fit comfortably into UK size 14 trousers. To do that, I need to drop a dress size and I want to do this by losing fat. I feel like I've got a good grip on workouts and food / diet so this challenge is about creating new routines and adding another level of automation into my daily life. Being more active outside of workout sessions and looking after my body are my main focus areas for this challenge. 1. Activity! STA+2 CON+2 Be active outside of workout sessions. Minimum is walking for 10 minutes per day. This is continuing from my previous challenge but is being made more difficult by a higher target. A = 30 or more active days B = 26-29 active days C = 22-25 active days F = 21 active days or fewer. 2. Spring clean! DEX+1 CHA+2 WIS+1 The start of spring is approaching and my body is beginning to show signs of winter wear and tear. I have made a list of activities I need to do to look after my body, and I have attributed points to those activities depending on how difficult (how likely I am to do them) they are. A = 100 points or more B = 75-99 points C = 50-74 points F = 49 points or fewer. 3. Floss! CON+2 CHA+2 I'm treating this like a 30-day hard hat challenge for the whole of the 6 weeks. Fairly simple, I want to automate my flossing routine, put floss everywhere and make sure to floss daily. Pass = Never miss 2 days in a row Fail = Miss 2 or more days in a row. 4. On your bike! DEX+1 CON+1 STA+1 I received a folding bike for Christmas and it's really easy to get out and about with it. I want to fit my bike in my car and take it to work with me. I hope to make a new activity out of bike riding and my initial aim is to ride my bike once per week. A = 5 bike rides or more B = 3 or 4 bike rides C = 1 or 2 bike rides F = No bike rides.
  3. Happy new year fellow rebels! Here goes for level 11 ... My ultimate goal is to fit comfortably in size 14 trousers. To get there, I need to drop a dress size. I need to be more active in order to burn the fat off. I am fit and healthy and rested so looking forward to starting the new year off right. 1. WORKOUT! 30-min workouts, 5 times per week. STR+2, STA+1, DEX+1 A = 28+ days with a workout B = 25-27 days with a workout C = 22-24 days with a workout F = 21 days or fewer with a workout 2. ACTIVITY! Be active outside of workout times. Minimum 10 minutes per day, 5 days per week. STA+2, CON+1 A = 28+ active days B = 25-27 active days C = 22-24 active days F = 21 or fewer active days 3. WORD! My employers have provided me with an advanced course in word processing, all paid for, but I need to find a few hours per week to learn it, practice it and take the exam. I want to take the exam before the end of February. WIS+4 A = Learned, practiced and exam date set B = Still practicing, nearly there C = Still practicing, will take exam but not sure if I will pass F = Nowhere near; will have to defer exam 4. VALENTINE! Valentine's day falls at the end of this challenge and I'd like to get away with my beau. I will need to plan a place, travel, accommodation, food, some activities and probably a bit of spending money. CHA+4 A = Everything planned and paid for B = Most of it was sorted but I forgot something small C = It was OK but I forgot something fundamental F = We stayed at home for Valentine's day.
  4. To achieve Level 8, I will be continuing working towards a more balanced self. I have some loose ends to tie up before I holiday in Amsterdam with my SO and BFF and a crowd of other dolly people. My Amsterdam trip will happen during the last 2 weeks of this challenge. My main quest is to fit comfortably into size 14 trousers by losing body fat. To move towards this achievement, I have set the following quests for this challenge: 1. Handstands! STR+1 DEX+2 As a much younger hooman, summer lunchtimes were spent out on the fields doing cartwheels and handstands. Now I have all but overcome my shoulder injury, the time has come to revisit those carefree days. Using Chris Salvato's method as a guide, I will spend 5 minutes per day on handstand practice (continued from previous challenge). A = 28+ days of handstand practice B = 25-27 days C = 22-24 days F = 21 days or fewer of handstand practice. 2. New Moves! STR+1 DEX+2 WIS+2 After being introduced to kettlebells last round by the Rangers mini-challenge, I found I enjoy learning new things and incorporating them into my circuits. So using sources such as Girls Gone Strong and Lift Weights Faster, I plan to learn new exercises I can put into practice. A = 15 new moves or more B = 12-14 new moves C = 9-11 new moves F = 8 new moves or fewer 3. Spreadsheets! WIS+3 CON+1 My employers have provided me with an advanced course in Excel, all paid for, but I need to find a few hours a week to learn it, practice it and take an exam. I want to take the exam before August. A = Learned, practiced and exam date agreed B = Still practicing but nearly there C = Still learning; will sit exam but not sure if I will pass F = Nowhere near ready, have to defer the exam 4. Floor! CON+2 CHA+1 Now my wardrobe is tidy, I want to make use of the mirrored doors and the space in front of the doors. I need to make a space on my floor for my exercise mat to fit. In order to see that bit of floor, I need to put things away and keep them away. A = Plenty of space for my mat B = Mat fits but clutter is creeping back C = Mat just fits but I trashed everywhere else F = No space for a mat to fit
  5. Hello old friends, I am heading back to the Rangers this time after hanging out with the Warriors for the last few challenges. To achieve Level 7, I will be channeling my true inner Ranger which means combining a lot of what I have learned over the last few challenges into a more balanced version of myself. My main quest is to fit comfortably into size 14 trousers by losing body fat. To move towards this achievement, I have set the following quests for this challenge: 1. Handstand challenge! STR+2 DEX+3 As a much younger hooman, summer lunchtimes were spent out on the fields doing cartwheels and handstands. Now I have all but overcome my shoulder injury, the time has come to revisit those carefree days. Using Chris Salvato's method as a guide, I will spend 5 minutes per day on handstand practice. A = 28+ days of handstand practice B = 25-27 days C = 22-24 days F = 21 days or fewer of handstand practice. 2. Rangerfy the workouts! STR+2 DEX+1 STA+2 Living in the land or Warriordom was great (lifting + eating = fun!) but I did sometimes yearn for the days when I did all the things. I will continue with workouts up to 5 days per week but make them circuit-type workouts and not pure heavy lifting or pure cardio. More a kind of cross fit style. Don't rest for too long between things. A = 25+ circuit workouts B = 22-24 circuit workouts C = 19-21 circuit workouts F = 18 or fewer circuit workouts. 3. Love your body challenge! WIS+2 CHA+1 Using Molly Galbraith's blog posts as a template and guide, I'll be completing this 28-day challenge within the 6 weeks of this challenge (so basically weekdays.) No grading here; I either complete it or I don't. 100% points for completing the challenge 0 points for not completing the challenge. 4. Clearout! WIS+1 CHA+1 Inspired by this article, I need to make a space on my floor for my exercise mat to fit. In order to see that bit of floor, I will eliminate the embarrassing pile of clothes that currently occupys the space. Currently my laundry goes from worn to wash to dry to worn - it never seems to hit the inside of the wardrobe. So what the hell is in the wardrobe?!? I obviously need to evaluate what I have, do a clearout, and eliminate that mess. A = "A place for everything, and everything in its place" B = The doors shut but inside things are messy C = Everything fits inside but the doors don't shut F = There are still things which don't fit in the wardrobe.
  6. “Eating and lifting are the only things Warriors worry about.†~ Nerd Fitness So far I have succeeded in building a solid lifting routine. But exercise is only a part of the battle. My strength and stamina is improving but my belly is not getting any less wobbly! We nerds are often told “you cannot outrun your fork.†So, in order to achieve Level 6, I plan to switch my focus on to what goes in to my body and my mind. I will continue to progress with my exercise routine, but I will concentrate on building a healthier mind and healthier food habits. My main quest is to fit comfortably into size 14 trousers. To move towards achieving this, I have set the following goals for this challenge: 1. Protein CHA+2 CON+2 STR+1 According to my NF Academy homework, 136g of protein per day should be sufficient. This rises to 176g-264g when I am looking to build muscle. Currently I do not hit 100g of protein per day very often. So, I will track what I eat and work towards eating more protein than I currently do. I will gradually find new ways of adding protein into my diet. By the end of this challenge I will be getting at least 136g of protein per day regularly. A=5 consecutive days over 150g protein B=5 consecutive days over 130g protein C=5 consecutive days over 110g protein D=5 consecutive days over 100g protein 2. Food discipline CON+3 STA+1 No eating after 8pm. A=36+ days with nothing to eat after 8pm B=30-35 days with nothing to eat after 8pm C=24-29 days with nothing to eat after 8pm D= 20-23 days with nothing to eat after 8pm 3. Ban boredom CON+2 DEX+1 When I get a craving for an unhealthy food, it’s usually because I am bored. Mostly, I end up playing “Candy Crush†for an hour and mindlessly eat some kind of junk. I no longer buy the junk so there is no junk at home. I will introduce a little extra activity here and there in order to keep boredom away. The activity can be anything useful, and I use the term “useful†in its broadest sense. A=36+ days where I was active and not bored B=30-35 days where I was active and not bored C=24-29 days where I was active and not bored D= 20-23 days where I was active and not bored 4. Life Quest: Practice meditation WIS+3 I will follow some meditation instructions (a book, a CD, on the internet or whatever) and will spend at least 10 minutes per day either reading through the instructions and practicing the exercises or taking part in a guided meditation. A=36+ days of meditation practice B=30-35 days of meditation practice C=24-29 days of meditation practice D= 20-23 days of meditation practice MOTIVATION: Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down. If you start now you’ll see results earlier than if you start tomorrow. When you feel like giving up, think about why you started.
