  1. Mistr just keeps swimming I made it through the first 11 months of the pandemic in pretty good emotional shape. We'll just ignore the stress eating for the moment. Now things are piling up and I am not coping as well. The main problem is that work is crazy busy. This is not just me, I've heard the same comment from several other people on my team. We are trying to fill an open position, but that is not really the problem. Our staffing level is decent because no one is on vacation this time of year. The cause seems to be that our customers
  2. I want to take this challenge to set up improved habits for the year. The world is going to change a lot this year, and I want to be in a good place to adapt to those changes. I was thinking I was coming up with new goals, but here is what I wrote in January last year: My goals for this year are more for fine tuning and continuous improvement rather than major changes. I want to improve in aikido and zen. I’m always going to want to keep moving up along those paths. I want to include more strength training and cardio in my exercise program because I’m at the age where decline
  3. Mistr does just one thing - Festivus 2020 I am late to the party because my work has been insanely busy. I've been composing this in my head for weeks and just now am sneaking in some time to write it down. In November I went on a 16 day road trip. Definitely an adventure rather than a vacation. However, it did give me a lot of time away from my usual responsibilities to think about things. I think I may have found a clue. Just One Thing My ongoing challenge is having too many things I want or need to do, and not enough time to do them. This is not n
  4. After a very stressful (AND SUCCESSFUL - HELL YEAH THIS ASSASSIN IS GOING TO LAW SCHOOL) last challenge, I'm going to try to keep this one simple and relatively easy to follow. Here it goes: 8 sessions of Krav Maga (2/8) 10 Cardio Sessions (11/10) 8 Body Weight/Weight Lifting Sessions (7/8) 25 Handstand Sessions (4/25) 25 Meals made at home (22/25) 30 Meditation Sessions (15/30) 25 Flexibility Sessions (6/25) Go through closet and donate clothes (0/1) Start packing to move (0/1)
  5. Hello! I am a French nerd, living in Belgium. I am not new here but I set my last challenge a while ago! Today, I weight 89 k (about 196 pounds) and I am already hitting the gym at least 3 times a week (thanks to a personal trainer). I said goodbye to 20 pounds in the past 4 months. I would like to keep up the good work, especially with my eating habits for which I definitely could use accountabilty. Why do I need help? I spend the last 3 weeks eating unhealthy food. I am not making a big deal of it because I understood why this happened. However, it's not a behaviour that will help a
  6. This is Harry Hart (aka: Galahad): He's a member of the not so secret service called the Kingsman and he's recruited me to join their ranks. But first - I have to make it through training. This is where we will be training: The rest of my group are pompous arses so we won't talk about them. There are multiple parts to becoming a spy: etiquette, work ethic, intelligence gathering, and physical ability. Manners Maketh Man: Luckily, I was actually required to take etiquette classes when I was young, so I don't need m
  7. This time around I will be keeping my categories the same and making some small adjustment to the specific goals. Last challenge went well overall while leaving plenty of room for improvement. Zero week was a week of lazy (I also worked 3 days so lazy in the sense of working out). I am recharged and ready to take on this challenge. 1. DON'T BE LAZY As I mentioned last challenge, I like watching TV and reading and playing with my dog way more than running or going to the gym. Last challenge I was able to hit met goals on a consistent basis and actually did much more exercise t
  8. When last I wrote, I had been struck down by the influenza virus, that curse of our Midwestern dwelling. For days my running schedule was despaired of, and when at last I came to myself and became convalescent, I was so whingy and restless that a board of my peers determined that not a day should be lost in sending me back to training. I was dispatched, accordingly, with team Altair in the walk for Multiple Sclerosis and a day later was in possession of a plan, with my miles irretrievably ruined, but with permission from a motherly figure, to spend the next 5 months recovering them.
  9. I am keeping it simple for this challenge and going back to the basics. My diet goals will be the same for the entire challenge. My exercise goals will be different each week to accommodate my return to work on week 3. I will try to get all my life goals completed while still on vacation if possible. Goal 1: In Search Of...A Healthier Diet 1. Average 1350-1400 cal/day 2. Maintain daily food log (including when I eat and how I feel) My diet suffered over the holidays, more than I am comfortable with. I hope to get this back under control. I want to be mindful of my sugar and simple carb
  10. Hiya This is the second time I'm trying to do a challenge. I didn't complete the last one. Quest: Work out more than once a week Challenge 1: Go to the gym for one hour, 3 times a week Success: 3 hours of exercise a week for 4 weeks Challenge 2: Eat 5 servings of unicorn veggies per day Success: 5 days a week fro 4 weeks Challenge 3: Drink water instead of sugar drinks Success: <2 sugar drinks in 4 weeks
  11. This challenge comes with no fancy theme and some very straight forward goals. Keeping it simple this time around is essential. If I learned anything from last challenge it is that I need to realistic with my goals given my work schedule. So back to the basics I go. Goal 1: Exercise Go to the gym at least 3-4x/week Run 50 miles this challenge (this could be ambitious but I'm going for it) Goal 2: Diet Keep calorie average around 1350/day Eat pizza no more than 2x this challenge No candy for entire challenge Goal 3: Be Social Post on my thread at least 3x/week Post on at least 3 di
  12. Captain's log, Stardate 40200.0. Five days until I embark upon my next 6 week challenge. My goals, not yet defined. They are, at present, slowly taking shape. For now, much needed sleep.
  13. Full Disclosure: I have yet to finish a single 6WC that I've started. Main Goal: Finish the challenge Subgoals: 1. Weight lifting 3x a week Work with PT to determine personal weight lifting planTrack progressRecord progress on Fitocracy and NF 6WC threadScoring: Every workout for the week tracked and recorded = 3 pts -1pt every workout not tracked and recorded 2. Running Cycling Walking x5 a week Run Attend spin class Walk for 30 minutes on the treadmill 5 days a week (hashing does not count, due to the walk/run nature of following the trail)Track progressRecord progress on Fitocracy a
  14. Welcome to the Hellmouth...If you haven't guessed Buffy is my inspiration for this challenge. Why?? Well..she kicks serious ass, has amazing friends, good fashion, and did I mention she kicks ass. Being a slayer requires consistent training to remain strong, agile and have the endurance needed to take on all the Hellmouth throws at her. My Slayer training will be a continuation of my exercise goals from last challenge. 1. At least 40 minutes of cardio 3-4 times per week. This challenge I would like to get 3 running days in each week. 2. Complete BW routine at least 3 times per week. I am t
  15. Hello Nerds, I am not new, however I am starting again (aka respawner). In a nutshell: - life happened hard - put on weight (thyroid is on sleep mode) - my organs are rebelling - I am exhausted. - self-esteem was hit but is now back in the game (hell yeah) So my plan is to get my system in Ordnung by : - resting a lot - eating healthy : which is for me mainly paleo paying attention to get enough iron, vitamin D, magnesium and Iode (I said my system was wreck) - working out : Crossfit and spinning mostly. Badmington occasionnally - taking care of my thoughts If I translate this in N
  16. -=Begin Transmission=- This is Ron Solo and you’re tuned into the ol’ Pork Chop Express. I’m your pilot on this beautiful journey through the stars. I’m here to tell you of the tales and challenges that this scoundrel faces as he flies around the galaxy. Currently, I reside on a planet named Dae’hanmingoo in the As’ia planetary system. I’ve been stationed here helping the local younglings in improving their understanding of Basic. When I’m not enlightening the minds of youngsters, you can find me meditating, training my brain or finding other ways of improving myself. My cu
  17. Hi guys! First post, first 5 minutes on the site, which was recommended by a co-worker and fellow nerd. . So here's a little background: 1. I'm 24. I'm a vegan. When I was pregnant I stopped being vegan and went vegetarian. I went from 127 lbs to 207 lbs. 2. I used to spin quite a bit. As in, at least 4 days a week on top of lifting. I have a membership at the YMCA (which has babysitting) but haven't been in months. I can barely find the motivation to work out at my apartment. 3. I'm very bottom heavy. It doesn't seem all that relevant, but I don't need exercise that targets my midsectio
  18. Hello! I am currently debating whether or not to buy a spin/stationary bike, and I'm wondering any of you own one or have a preferred type at the gym that you would consider buying for yourself. My ride style is more upright (I currently ride a hybrid bike outside). My reason for inquiring about this is that where I live we get about 6-8 months of winter/ice/snow/slip-and-fall-on-face weather and it's really interfering with my fitness goals since I am just not hardcore enough to stick a pair of ice tires on my bike and be miserable outside when it is awful out! So I'm looking for an indoo
  19. Hey all, back for more and i'm still training for an endurance cycle in March 2015 (109km, yoh). My current challenge goals might not only be about cycling per se, but it's about endurance Main Quest: Be fit enough to complete the Cape Argus Cycle Tour in March 2015 with my cousin. Quest 1: 2x Spinning "Classes" per week I have never done a spinning class before but my uncle and cousin swear by the classes. They claim it helps keeping up the endurance so i'd like to start doing it. The problem i have is that there are no spin classes at my gym. There are spin bikes though. So i need t
  20. The WonderPhoenix has returned. YES. I was lost in the black hole of doom until I decided it was enough. (Excuses!) The bad news is now I have high bad cholesterol (250 mg) and I asked the doctor not to give me medication and he gave me 6 months to reduce the numbers. My motivations (randomly) Health: Drop my cholesterol rateBe inspiring: I want to be a better ME, healthier, persistent and fitter. I want to be inspiring to my family and my friendsSelf-appreciation: I take care of myself because I deserve it I want to be a healthier self, more energetic so I am cleaning my life from obstac
  21. Dear People, My first adventure is over, here is the new one! It's a sick Natarella, that is talking to you here! Part of my adventures involved cycling to work (7kms = 4.34 miles one way) no matter the weather and I live in a cold, rainy country. Winter is coming… I am glad to be in Assassins' guild! I chose to be here because : - active and fun - guild leaders are actually really present to support people (thing that was totally lacking in the Newcomers "guild"… maybe an improvement can be made on this?) - because this challenge will be focused on fitness and specific bodyweight
  22. My Anthem song folks, I love Kanye's version, the rythm, the flow (not the lyrics though). It gives me the strength to give my all (not this all ) For those who do not know me : PrincessNatarella, a strong and independent blackbarella, on my way to greatness , like most of you! I spent quite some defining and chosing the goals, the rating system! I am a multitask person, focusing is already a challenge for me. Main Quest Fit in a size 40 and weight 72kg. I'd be happy happy to fit in the size 40, no matter how I weight. My motivations (randomly) Health: Diabetes and heart blood p
