  1. I want to enjoy my holidays, the summer, the free time.
  2. Late to the party, whoops, but I did just return from vacation on Monday. I trailed off on the last challenge but don't feel terrible about it because it was insanely hectic - not the most stressed I've ever been, but definitely the most major events in a month. Plus at the beginning of the challenge I wasn't planning on the Italy work trip, and then that happened in the middle of everything. My healthy routines were thoroughly disrupted, but I still squeezed in a little exercise and some vegetables. I'm thrilled to be home, and in my own kitchen and bed again (not at the same time, obviously)
  3. This is my plan for the two week break: 1. Finish my previous challenge! My two most important goals still have one week left. One is about running mileage (need 17 miles this week to hit my standard benchmark or 41 to hit a stretch goal). For my other goal, I need to get in a quality threshold training workout. 2. Figure out my next challenge. That's the magic faerie dust. I'm always trying to tweak the plan a little. Looking for that small change that will make a big difference. The next challenge will have a couple of intensive weeks at work followed by a trip to run a mara
  4. I have been trying to opt for outside activities. Thinking of new fun things such as hiking in the woods fishing climbing and beachcombing. Feeling fatter than ever but choosing to ignore that voice. I've been trying to eat healthy. I had a great breakfast option of veggie omelet while on vacation. But need to focus on packing healthy snacks and eating at home more. But....I am meeting my goals of exercise, eating veggies everyday. Still need to work on the pray/meditate time. We get ourselves so busy in this world. Must slow down. We went jetty fishing and lots of hikes acro
  5. Moving from the Adventurer's Guild to the Rangers. It may be a temporary move, but I'm excited for this change. I still have an Adventurer's heart, but I needed to mix things up a bit. Goals: Returning to a challenge similar to my second one. Expect a lot of self-care as well as a lot of nature and love and music and joy as I seek to make this a positive and awesome summer. Get Rest: Wind down at sunset (limited/no technology), moderate/light physical activity (yoga, stretches, etc.) In bed no later than 10:30 pm (unless impossible because of work, etc.
  6. I know I want this challenge to be about summer and getting more in touch with my primal self (this includes movements, diet, rest, etc.) as well as my spiritual self. I'll get my goals figured out and add them in later. For now... an infographic to serve as the rough draft of my challenge:
  7. The last challenge was challenged by deadlines and a lot of travelling for different reasons. This excursion is threatened by heat (too hot to run!) and the easy summer life (hello drinks with friends! hello lazy evening at the river!), but with a bit of discipline it should be easy to avoid these traps. Run 15 km a week. Obtain 15 points from bodyweight exercises. Every 10 Burpees adds 1 extra point Every 20 Situps/Squats/PushUps/Leg lever/mountain climbers adds another extra point Study write 6 pages
  8. Bro's and Swolemaidens, Its been too long. And I need to awaken from my Br0din sleep. When you last saw your lifting god in action, I was adjusting to a new boss, new work internet restrictions and figuring out tapatalk (why do I keep getting unsubscribed from treads!!!!) In the last 6 weeks: 1. supported the wife in her whole 30 quest. Cooking was fun, food tasty, but I stalled my weight loss cause I didn't count cals, because I didn't want to stress her out. Turns out she didn't whole 30 almost perfectly. 2. A coworker past away. Bei
  9. Well, on one side, I thought there was a 2 week pause, and secondly I'm still working on the same goals than last challenge, so this one is going to be pretty similar to the other. Except this time I'm going to be AWESOME. Keep enjoying the summer. Take it seriously, really, there won't be another summer until next year. Keep on planning and doing activities that I could not do during school time or in winter weather. Meditate. At around 11 am. Try to make it every day. Really, it's good for you. Yes, it's good. GOOD. Did I mention it's good? 30 DAYS IN A ROW!!!! GOAL ACCOMPL
  10. 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
  11. Welcome back to everyone who's been following me before For new readers, I'm an amateur gymnast and weightlifter from the UK, and I also do climbing and slacklining and any other random things that catch my wandering attention... Last challenge I set myself a huge checklist of strength and skill goals, and completed a modest number of these items. I also got quite frustrated and bored with chasing PRs all the time, and decided that my for this challenge I would have more of a process-based approach. So this challenge, I'm working on goals that will not have much immediate gain, but will make
  12. Wild Colonial Grrl who is becoming Batgirl is still Rehabilitating as Oracle whilst finding and setting up a new Batcave! Here's the back story... Been living in my parent's house for nearly 3 years caring for my Grandmother whilst they live out a dream and travel around Australia in a Winnebago. Now they are back and I am preparing to move out. 113 days ago I was practicing TKD sparring and blocked a black belt's kick on a funny angle and got three injuries for the price of one: broken radius, wrist capsule sprain and ongoing thumb joint arthritic flare up from a misaligned joint that I woul
  13. We interrupt this previously scheduled program with an adventure on the high seas!! (Part A) Our summer challenge opens with our hero lying, soaken and shivering, on the wooden deck of a ship heading away from the realm of the recently-defeated Frostking. The lump on the back of her head and resulting head-ache leave her confused and disoriented. The rolling of the ship doesn't contribute positively to her general altertness or ability to engage in witty reparte either when the ship's captain notices her beginning to stir painfully. "Oh, good. I was beginning to think that we'd made a
  14. 2014 Scout Summer Solstice run sign-up sheet Northern Hemisphere Version The Summer Solstice (longest day of the year) is approaching. In fact, it's a week away, and with a long-arse day like that there's bound to be at least some time in there to fit in a 5k run. This mini challenge is for people to pledge to do at least a 5k run on Saturday 21 June at any time of day. Since it will be the longest day of the year, let's all wear some yellow on us, that being the colour of the sun. Southern Hemisphere Version The Winter Solstice (shortest day of the year) is approaching. In fact, it's a
  15. I actually made some good measurable, visible progress last challenge, so I want to keep the momentum going this summer. However, after 14 challenges, I've noticed that I tend to lose some focus/drive after about 3-4 weeks. I always try to finish each challenge because I'm tenacious like that, but for the next 3 months, I'm going set goals in 4 week increments. I don't consider myself officially entered in this 6 week challenge, so I don't know if I'll be updating this thread a bunch, but you can follow my daily adventures in my battle log. I'll be keeping my eye on all of my fellow Range
  16. Aaaand I'm back. Well, I was always around, lurking/creepin' on the forums and dutifully reading my biweekly NF emails, so let's say I'm back and actively participating. So, let's get down to business, shall we? Main Quest: To lose 10 pounds and/or 5% bodyfat. Bikini season is soon upon us, ya'll. SUMMER IS COMING! Current stats: 142 lbs, 28% body fat, 5'5", single white female (j/k j/k). How to do it? 1) Ketosis. Can I get an "Amen"? I'm pretty much in love with the ketogenic diet. After going full paleo since the beginning of the year, I started playing with ketosis for a month now and
  17. So I'm off to Serifos in late October 2014. My goal is to lose as much weight as possible, but sensibly, between now and then...but also changing general lifestyle. Anyway, I'm currently 5'6 and am a size 20-22 (UK), depending on what style of clothing I'm wearing. Today I needed to get a nice summer outfit that would be a goal to fit into. Here it is: From Tesco, so not expensive. The top is loose and will have a tanktop with it eventually. It's a size 14. The shorts are a size 14. 22 to size 14 is a lot... but I tried them on earlier and, surprisingly, there is only 3 inches that I ne
  18. "Well well well, what do we have here, an AWOL ODST trooper returning back to Firebase Alpha." This is my quiet little re-entry back in to the world of Nerd Fitness, proper strength training, the Warriors Guild and finding an income. I'll try to stick by the challenge script. For a bit of a background, as of the 18th of Sept, I'll have been without employment for a whole 365, an achievement which hasn't appeared on my XBOX, gone through the drag of 6 months of failed job applications and interviews and of not having daily objectives to achieve, went back to university to start a Masters in
  19. So! It's that time again, already. I was going to name this challenge "Mir gets jacked and swole" but Bigm came up with this in chat and I thought it sounded more awesomer. Goals! 1. Eat to perform (I think) - doing some research on this now and this weekend. No more cutting. I realized that it will be easier for me to cut and actually have some success if I build MOAR muscles. So, that's the plan. Grading scheme and stats to come. (+2 CHA for dem gunz and dat ass) 2. Pick that shit up, dammit - I want a 200# deadlift. I've been wanting it for over a year, and I think I'm getting close
  20. Eth's Challenge #7 Eth Stands the Heat and Stays in the Kitchen Hello again, fellow Rangers! I'm back for my seventh (wow, really, seventh?) six-week challenge. For those of you who don't know me, I'm Eth, a 26-year-old male software developer based in (or very near) Atlanta. With the beginning of summer (here in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway) taking place during this challenge, the theme of these goals will have a little something to do with that. Goal #1: These Plates are Hot (+3 STR) This is all about continuing to hit my targets on the 5/3/1 plan. I think it'll go a bit better
  21. Here is my abbreviated story: Mildly overweight my whole life - Got married - Got pregnant - BAM! Officially Fat (162lbs - 207lbs) My husband and I want to start trying again in September, so I'm trying to lose as much body fat/weight as I can by that point. GOALS!! 1. SLEEP! My husband and I just joined a gym. We will be getting up "early" to go (aka a reasonable time according to the rest of the world). For that to happen I need to go to sleep at a reasonable time. Goal: In bed, asleep by 11pm Sunday - Thursday nights. Exception: Wednesday nights that I work (Every other week) (
  22. Hi, there! New nerd here. My name is Sarah and I am 25 years old. Most of the time I feel much older than that, but let's be honest, in the not-so-distant future I will consider these years as some of the best in my life - if not the best. That's why I am doing this challenge - to continue to push myself in the hopes of unveiling a better understanding of myself and my purpose in life. There are two good, big things I have worked hard to achieve in my life: 1) My relationship with my boyfriend, Shelton, who loves and supports me unconditionally. 2) A fun job in a challenging industry wh
  23. So, I was looking through pinterest, and this "June Abs Challenge" keeps popping up. Except it kind of sucks (200 situps by the last day? Not interested). So, two questions: 1. Does anyone know of a better "Abs Challenge"? 2. Who wants to join me?
  24. To the San Francisco Bay Area Rebels: I scored an internship in Alameda for this summer, so I will be out in the Bay Area for all of June, all of July, and a very brief part of August. Yay me! But I know no one in California. No friends, no acquaintances, not even a good enemy to graciously welcome me with an easily foiled attempt on my life. This makes me sad. I would love to meet some Californian rebels while I'm out West. Any takers?
