  1. "Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You're no outlaw - at least, not anymore - but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. You're unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever." Since falling back into my Destiny roots, I have been enjoying the hell out of the Destiny 2 since it became Free to Play. I also recently purchased the newest "season" called Shadowkeep, along with access to the next 3+ seasons being added in the future which include specific missions and new guns/armor. I've al
  2. Gather 'round ye young and old. Listen close as this story unfolds. I tell the tale of a party of four and the epic adventure that was in store. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! There was a fiery barbarian, a fallen hexblade, a clerical modron and me, the horned bard - little did they know, this adventure would be hard. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! Through dungeons they would explore and monsters they would battle, the journey ahead would be a difficult one traveled. PRIDE is the name! Slaying is the game! Would they succeed? This was a questi
  3. I have been planning on making a battle log for a while now. I have been in and out of the challenges for 3 or 4 years now. I have enjoyed them but I think for now I am done with them. I used to be bigger into lifting and rucking and then shifted into the world of IRONMAN. In 2017/2018 I finished two full IRONMANs struggled through a couple of GORUCK challenges and generally was not too happy with my fitness. This past year(2018) I have kind of been lazy and not focused much on a goal, I did a few sprint triathlons and a GORUCK light. For 2019 my new game plan is to hit the triath
  4. Joining late and fist week is not as good as I would like but here it is. My Goal = Improve fitness, reduce % body fat and get stronger Each day has tasks worth points each week I give myself a score out of a possible total of daily points. Week days = Early AM workouts; Nutrition tracking; 10,000 steps; martial arts training; Drink water Weekends = Nutrition tracking; drink water; 10,000 steps; Long distance run; cleaning Just to make life easier for me I am counting Sunday to Saturday as a week.
  5. Whew! I took last challenge off, because I was stupid-busy and basically had no faith in my ability to keep up with a challenge thread of my own, let alone any one else's. But things are calming down now, and while the break may have been good for my mental health, I've got some make-up work to do physically... Enough. I'm done with watching the scale creep up. Done with feeling out of control with eating. Done with feeling like shit in general. Goal number one: Get my food choices back in a good place. I've been trying, but falling in to the whole "eat well throug
  6. Guys! I've lost my wind, and I need to get it back! I was totally trampled by some kind of respiratory virus during the last two weeks of the previous challenge. I'm only just getting over it, and my lung health and overall endurance is pretty not great right now. This challenge is about recovery and getting myself back up to my previous workout levels. Incidentally, my DH bought me the WiiU remastered Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker game to help keep me from losing my mind during my convalescence. So I'm currently playing that (for
  7. I'm coming off the high of a wildly successful challenge, and I am so committed to making those changes last! I completed my 3rd Whole30 last round, and it was by far my most successful. I ate like a Queen, I got all my workouts in, I walked, I learned, I journalled. Now I need to find a framework for it all that works in my post-Whole30 world. I find the extreme strictness of the program much easier than exercising moderation - if cheating isn't an option, I won't do it. If it's okay to have just a little of whatever, drawing the line where I stop is SO much harder! So my foc
  8. Man, I just love the new year! It's like a brand new notebook, with margins unscribbled. It's like a fresh field of snow with no foot prints. It's a bright Saturday morning when you woke up early and have no plans. In short, it's pure, unadulterated potential. Right now, I have the potential to become an absolutely amazing version of myself, and DAMMIT I'm going to realise that potential THIS YEAR. Full stop. This challenge is stepping stone #1 towards that Fonzico. Nitty gritty: Goal Number One: Complete the Whole 30.
  9. So the timing isn't ideal on this one - I'm starting a 40 day bootcamp dealio a little over half way through the challenge, so my goals are going to shift to align with that. I'll try to make it as uncomplicated as possible though Goal One: Work outs! 2x per week: I'll be doing kettlebell classes for the first 2.5 weeks (my old instructor is no longer on the schedule! I'm very very sad. They've also taken away the day/time we were going at, and are now only doing 2 KB sessions per week instead of four. So it's also going to be crowded. Might be looking for something diffe
  10. Last challenge was a 50% success. This challenge will be similar to the last one, but I have decided I need to shift my focus for my second goal this time around. Goal One - maintain an average of at least 13,000 steps/day, composed of exercise converted into steps and actual steps walked. This goal has a finish date of July 31st, so it doesn't run quite all the way thorough the four weeks (though it does continue during zero week). If I succeed, I will earn $100. I nailed this one last challenge. I'm sure I can keep it going. I will have to think of something else exercise r
  11. "They're everywhere! The walkers are everywhere!" The shout reaches me from across the field where I see Russ sprinting over the horizon with terror on his face. Looks like we'll be moving on, and quick! Our little group has survived so far, some a bit worse for wear, but who knows how long that'll last. We even have a pregnant woman. I run into the farmhouse where we've been staying and alert the others. Our vehicles are always packed - we've learned that much over the last few months - so it's just a matter of getting everyone in as quickly as possible. We've loaded u
  12. So I was panicking for a little there, worrying about what I was going to do to replace kettlebells when classes end for the summer - I couldn't find another reasonably priced class that I was interested in. But I've decided to just roll with it, and change things up for the summer, and become more of a Scout/Druid hybrid. I'll still attempt to get some 'Belling in a home, to prevent total annihilation come Fall, but the focus this summer will be logging miles (biking and walking) and improving flexibility (yoga). And that's okay. Goal the First: Bike Commute! I've been mostly
  13. Simple challenge this time, I hope. Main goal: maintain a 13,000 steps/day average, including actual walking/running and other exercise converted into steps, for the course of the next two challenges (technically, June 6 through July 31). Reward: $100 gift card, courtesy of the office exercise challenge. Secondary goal: fix up my diet and lose some of this fat in time for my vacation. Reward: new bathing suit, possibly a bikini if I lose enough. The plan: For my main goal, it's to be to get up and walk more during the day. Take the stairs instead of
  14. Hello all, Somehow I didn't quite make the last challenge <hangs head in shame>. I did my first half-marathon on 8 May and, whilst I have certainly run and trained since then, it's all been a bit unfocused. Time to home in on my goals with surgical precision again! This time last year, when I had yet to discover NF, one of my key goals was to complete a half-marathon, and now I've done that, thanks in no small measure to you lot. My main other goal is to be able to deadlift my own body weight (currently about 57kg). I'm a bit skeptical about this but am going to give it a t

  16. I've been on this health/fitness journey for exactly two years now. Over the last few months I've kept up with things, but I haven't really been challenging myself very much. My big overarching goal when I started two years ago was to feel better and to be able to do more. Not very specific I know, but I succeeded! Far beyond what I thought I could do. Even though I knew I wasn't where I wanted to be I stopped trying so hard. I've kept up with things enough that I haven't lost any ground in fact I've lost a few more pounds. Reading other peoples threads and peelout asking me what my goals were
  17. So I have to confess I was having a bit of a hard time with things. It just seemed like one thing after another for a few months there. And my coping mechanisms left something to be desired. I wasn't happy with the choices I was making, but I just could not. Stop. Making. Them. Which was just making things worse. Vicious cycle. Exacerbated by continually failing challenge goals. So I took a break. Things have been going better lately though. And I've got my head back on straight. And I'm ready for another challenge! I've been working out, eating great. My house is... maintaining a baseline of
  18. Hello Adventurers! I'm fairly new to Nerd Fitness and looking to start a challenge (plus make some friends while doing this). For Christmas I received a Fitbit, so some of my goals below will be easier to track with it. BTW, here's to a new year... Goal #1 (Diet) - Have a salad, fruit, or veggie each day. Goal #2 (Diet) - Cook one healthy meal at home per week. Goal #3 (Fitness) - Walk 5k steps per weekday and 8k on weekend days. One day my goal will be 10k steps. Goal #4 (LUYL) - Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Eventually the goal will be 8 hours of sleep, but I ba
  19. Hello fellow Scouts! Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. I had a ridiculous chest infection which is still hanging around unfortunately. Anyway my scouting plans for 2016 involve a half marathon in March, a marathon in May and a 10k at the London Olympic Village finishing in the Queen Elizabeth Stadium in July. That's all I've got booked at the moment but I'll book more as I go along. So the plan is Goal 1. Run three times per week as per my marathon training plan This is a long slow run on Tuesdays, fast 5km on Thursday and a steady 7-8km on a Sunday. The long slow runs ar
  20. Hi there! I think exercise can be incredible for both emotional and physical health. There is a great group of inspiring, people on Nerd Fitness and I am excited to become a part of this... A little bit about me, I first started with Nerd Fitness with my uncle and cousin a while back, I was only able to skim the waters and I was taken out of the game...I stopped being able to do basic exercise because of injuries. I tore my left rotator cuff injury and I also sustained soft tissue damage in left knee. It took a LOT of physical therapy and endurance to overcome my knee injury. I want to g
  21. I really do need to drop some body fat but calorie counting and eating in a deficit just isn't working for me on a whole right now. I think it's best kept to shorter periods such as one challenge instead of across multiple challenges. You know, for personal sanity sake. So this challenge I'm switching it up and I'm going to have FUN and participate in self care or "boosters". I'm going to lift weights, and eat to support it. And instead of trying to decrease consumption I'm going to focus on increasing activity. I'll reexamine my calorie deficit options in January. Goal one: Strength Str
  22. OK somehow I posted my new challenge to the old forum so am copying and pasting to the correct forum Posted 13 September 2015 - 05:25 PM I've been away from the challenges for a couple of months and now I'm rested and rejuvinated it's time to respawn. My goal for this challenge is simply to climb back on the NF wagon gently by making life as easy and stress-free as I can. This will involve: 1. Walk! STA+2 CON+2 CHA+1 Fairly simple to explain, I'll just strap on my pedometer, get up and walk around. A = 221k steps and over B = 211k - 220k steps C = 200k - 210k steps F = Under 200k steps

  24. Oh yeah, that's right, it's time for a Princess Bride themed challenge! I've loved the Princess Bride for a very, very long time. Book and movie, both great. In middleschool, my dad photoshopped my face onto the movie poster for some class project. I can't remember for the life of me why. I had braces and pimples .. not a great replacement for the most beautiful woman in the world. But it was pretty cool. I'll see if he still has it somewhere. Aaaaaanyways. Except this is not the story of Westley and Buttercup, it is the story of Fonzico, and here R.O.U.S. stands for Results Of Unflappable
  25. Slow and Steady, for there is No Race. I remember using this saying a lot last year, to remind myself and others that the journey is the thing. There are in fact thousands of starting lines and finish lines in life. There was never meant to be just one of each. GOAL ONE -- GET OUTSIDE and MOVE IT, MOVE IT. Week Zero :: Walk in the Morning, at least 5,000 steps, each day. Week One :: Walk at least 9,000 steps daily THEN ADD listed activity each week with a 5,000 separate step count on hiking/running days Week Two :: Hike 2 times. Week Three :: Run/Hike 2 times. Week Four :: Run/Hike 3 times
