  1. PROLOGUE Hello fellow adventurer! My name is Lisiera, but you may call me Lissy. I see you've found my battle log. I admit that it isn't too impressive in its current state. But that's okay! I'm working on changing that. And, as an optional side quest, my friend, you're free to help as well. You see, I have many dreams. I'd love to spar and hold my own against a warrior like Alistair or Sten (Dragon Age). I long to have the endurance to hike from Canifis to Yanille (Runescape). I'd love to have the agility and skill like Black Widow to take down my enemies in the blink
  2. So I wasn't sure if this is where I should start, because I've had Nerd Fitness for about a year and I tried it, and failed miserably at sticking with it, so I guess this is technically a respawn? I did track and cross country all 4 years in high school, (about 6 years ago from graduation) and I took a year off, then did it again for a year or 2 at a junior college. Since then I've stopped consistently working out like I used to. I've tried several workout plans and "diets" and nothings worked, I end up fizzling out. So I thought Nerd Fitness would be great because it's so focused on small c
  3. So my kid who just graduated college has a shot at a job, but the company wants him to have a local address..... I know no one in that area, or anything factual about living in Los Angeles. Anyone know of a place a kid just starting out could settle into for a short time until he can get his feet under him? He wont actually move to LA until he is offered a job, but it would be advantageous for him to be able to say, no I don't live there yet but I have somewhere I can be until I find a place. Seems the "moving" part of this process is a concern for employer. Suggestions and Helpful ins
  4. Hello Rebels! I stumbled upon NF a while ago and I'm quite taken with it. Heres my story for those who are interested. In HS I was puny. As a 5'6" guy that weighed in at 110lbs I fell in with the nerds. Also, I'm smart! ;-) I like to think I was a nerd before it was cool. I took up boxing and inline skating and rock climbing in HS so was quite fit, but not super strong. I got married shortly out of HS and went from 120lbs to nearly 240, in about 6 years. I got serious about getting fit and changed my diet and started hitting the gym. That took me from 235ish to 170 lbs. And a divor
  5. Hi. My name is Sara Benincasa. I'm a comedian and a writer and a human. I played a lot of King's Quest when I was a kid. I was in marching band for two years, and I was actually on a competitive baton and flag squad. On purpose. I spend a lot of time on Twitter and Facebook when I ought to be a.) working on my novel b.) working on a script c.) eating healthy foods or d.) exercising. I try fad diets and then stop them. I always sucked at sports and so I react to the thought of exercise by whining and running in the opposite direction (generally straight to bed to take a nap). I'm here becau
  6. Well, I squeaked into day 1 just in time, and even managed to achieve today's goals! Thanks to my amazing friend (in real life) TheHalfie for telling me about Nerd Fitness long enough in advance that I had ample time to procrastinate about completing my post until the last moment! (This might be something for next challenge.) But I'm thrilled to be here and give six weeks a chance to retrain my habit patterns. With my new goals in place, I'm off on my mission to find balance. Here's the July 29 rundown. WIN: work up at 5:30am. (That'll be a point thanks.) WIN: yoga workout (yup, that'
  7. Hello all! I am IronAegis, and this is my first time posting to the Nerd Fitness forums, although I've been reading for a few months now. I loved the idea of a 6 week challenge and though I'd throw my hat into the ring for this one to spice things up a bit. Pictures and other fluff to come, but I wanted to at least get my post up. A Little About Me Well, for starters, I turned 30 this year, and in anticipation of this event, I decided to make a big push. I, like oh-so-many individuals, made a New Year's resolution to eat better and get back into shape. I did come up with a plan, worked tow
  8. S'up! I'm not hugely overweight, but I'm heading in that direction. I have diabeties in my family AND breast cancer, so I need to turn my life around and fast! I'm nearly 30, about 11 and a half stone (don't know what that is in pounds, ironically), and five foot 6, so I've always been a bit stocky. My main problem is laziness shortly followed by lack of social graces and a terrible diet plagued by sugar and carb addiction. The silly thing is my mum is a fitness instructor and yoga teacher with 30 years experience! Did I listen to her? Did I hell! This has, understandably, fustrated her and sa
  9. Try Again

    Way Late

    I am way late to the party. But I'm here now and that is the important part. Today I looked a photo from one of my campus clubs and for a second couldn't find myself. The person in the picture standing where I should have been didn't look like me. All I could think is, what happened to my neck? Here are my goals for the rest of the challenge Limit wine consumption to two glasses on Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately I have been using wine as relief from school stress. 4- 1 hours workouts per week I've been skipping workouts in favor of relaxing with wine and th
  10. Hello NF! Can't wait to get to know you on this NF journey! Starting out, I am 25 and at around 220 lbs. (my scale batteries died so I am not quite sure ). I (finally) joined nerd fitness to actually get my butt in gear! After having a couple bad exp. with my intsetines, I no longer want to exp. that kind of pain again. so with eating right, a supportive community, (you guys), and a NF plan (or two) I will Height: 5'4" Weight: 220 (guesitmate...) Goal Weight: 145 - 135 Other weight-related goals: Being able to have defined waist and hips (will happen thru weight loss..., but still!) Heads
  11. I'm past the point of long intro's and crazy ideas but here's some random stuff about me and crap. I was once thin... a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. I know how I got there just can't seem to remember or find my way back. So I'm hoping this will work for me, finally find that thing that gets into my brain and makes me listen up. I have a total of 140lbs to lose (though I'm very flexible with that number), lost 33.4lbs so far on my own, and a total of 12.9lbs since I re-committed myself (yes that's part of the total 33.4lbs). I feel like I have all the odds against me. I work f
  12. Hey y'all, (Yes I'm from the South). This is my go at entering the forum. Never been much a chatboard/forum person, but the more time passes, the more I realize that the right people are awesome to be around. Especially NF Rebels. So excited to hear from fellow Rebels and to help other Rebels exceed their goals! I'm a senior at University of Tennessee studying Economics. Personally I'm reserved but can be goofy from time to time. I'm a business, productivity, and self-help nerd. Love the stuff. Listen to HBR podcasts and the like walking to classes. When 2013 rolled around I took
  13. It's the third day of twenty thirteen, and I figured it's a good time to finally get out from behind the youtube screen, and start trying to do something amazing myself. My name's Kelsey, and I want to be a tracuer. I've been interested in parkour for a little more than a year now, but I've got the typical "shy chick, she's unathletic and hasn't got a clue where to start" back story. Time to grow some balls much? I'm not in high school, don't have a job at the moment and have yet to start college: meaning there's nothing standing in the way of me getting up, getting out, and getting started
