  1. I feel like 2020 was rather disorienting for everyone - like it just went and ... Yeah black eyes ... that's how 2020 felt. Wait ... not black eyes!!! uh ... oh ... Yes this will be a Supernatural themed challenge ... cause I'm rewatching the whole series ! Quest 1 - It's not the years, it's the mileage As always the main focus for me is running (comes with being a scout) Currently we are cruising at 5 and 6 miles during the church of the long run I'm looking to hit double digits on long run by the end of this challenge! Quest 2 - I'm trying to survive. Now let's be honest I'm NOT going to look like Sammie at the end of this but gotta start somewhere Now is the time to stop making excuses and getting back into body weight workouts! GOAL - 3 body weight workouts per week! Quest 3 - Bring me (no) Pie! With the shelter in place going on, the food stuffs have gotten a bit crazy - time to clean things up and stop eating so much pie Looking to limit myself to 1 sweet treat a day and up my fruit / veg intact with 3-4 snacks of them per day. Quest 4 - Learn the Lore Always keep reading! I've not found a new book yet but I'm on the hunt ... as it were. Let's see where the road leads us
  2. I am QRG! Or Mary. Either way. I'm currently deep in the throws of a Supernatural re-watch so my battle will be to train me for "saving people, hunting things". Really, I'm just a chick who loves horror, supernatural, superheroes, and knitting. I could just as well be a slayer in training, but Buffy is waiting for its re-watch turn. I've worked in various offices for most of my life, starting with folding pamphlets and babysitting for my dad's church as a kid, followed by market research, insurance, and trucking. Being an office monkey is good for me since I kind of enjoy getting lost in paperwork, forms and organization. But its bad for my body. Also, I'm no longer a weird little nerdy punk rocker grrrl. I sit to knit and watch tv. And I'm not running all over town visiting friends and going to shows. Adulting is hard all over. So, here is where I'm sort of starting (sort of because I've been an NF member for a year now, but I've only done 2 challenges counting the current): That was a couple weeks ago. I'll update after the next challenge or during it sometime. No pictures yet. I took some, I just really don't feel like sharing right now. So, I've been working on my food. I love baking, but I've been spreading out to making more salads (which I also love) and experimenting with other dishes more centered around veggies. I love veggies. But I still get asked to bake a lot, so I just make sure its clear the leftovers are not coming home with me. My boyfriend Mike is adjusting to there being more vegetables than chip in the house. He's doing ok so far. But he still brings in his own and eats out a lot. Which is cool.. This is my thing, he is only required to participate if he wants to keep eating the food I cook and keep around. Unless he's buying chocolate or pizza. Then I have to fight it. I've started running. I love it, even if I'm not very good yet. I did track in junior high, but I hadn't run since. I just love how I feel afterwards on a run day. Aside from the stiffness, I mean. I have more energy and I just am in a much better mood on run days. I feel like I have more patience. My best mile so far is 16:11 I'm trying to do yoga more and meditate, but those have not been my main focus. I do need to make yoga more primary, though. I miss my old flexibility and I am definitely stiff and in need of yoga after a run. I'm also starting to lift. This is quite recent. I had been doing bodyweight workouts and that was great, but I am in love with the bar. Right now I'm only lifting the bar, but I plan to get a schedule set up to start really strength training for the next challenge. A hunter has to be strong to fight. Those are the basics. With some side quests along the way. Here are links to my challenges: The Adventure Begins QRG vs the Army of Darkness QRG Apocalypse Preparation QRG Does Stuff. And Things. QRG - No Power in the 'Verse Can Stop Me QRG - Five by Five Now let's do this.
  3. Hi! I'm Fedaykin, 25 yo female who loves to read, drink tea, dream and I'm currently interested in zero waste and minimalism. I've followed Nerd Fitness since I read the article on parkour but never stopped collecting underpants and started actually doing anything about changing my life. My reason for finally jumping in is a trio of events: I got promoted (yay, guest service team leader!), I caught and recovered from mono, and I realized that my life consists of working, sleeping, and sitting on my butt reading. My quest for this challenge is to build healthy habits. I will... Track what I eat every day. I want to see what I'm doing with my diet before I change it. Drink at least 60 oz of water a day (not including my daily tea). I constantly feel dehydrated and I know this is contributing to my lack of motivation to do anything. Exercise 5 days a week. Walk, run, bike, bodyweight exercises, anything beyond what I already do. I live close to a paved walking/biking trail, so as it becomes spring in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I want to utilize this resource. Floss every night. I currently don't floss and it's a source of personal disappointment for me. Wish me luck! I plan to update at least twice a week.
  4. So, last challenge I did ok. By week 4 though I was having difficulties. I've been crazy stressed by school. It's to the point that I"m looking for an online tutor to help me. I've never had a class THIS hard before. So, I began to stress eat. Starting today though, I'm calling on the Winchesters to help me fight my demons!!!! So, with Sam and Dean at my side, I can totally kick this challenge's ass and get back on track!!!!! Demon #1: Ruby (HP: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) As Ruby fed Sam's addiction to demon blood, so has she fed my addiction to sugar and high calorie foods. With Sam and Dean's help, I will vanquish Ruby back to hell by limiting my sugar intake to 2 sugary snacks per week. Demon #2: Alastair (HP: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) Alistair... the demon who tortured Dean and taught him the tools of the trade in hell. To withstand his torturous blades and then kick his ass with the Winchesters, I will need to be strong and resilient. Every time I go to the gym and work out is an attack on Alistair. I will go to the gym and work out at least 2 times every week. Anything above that is a bonus attack on Alistair. Demon #3: Crowley (HP: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) Crowley, the King of the Crossroads and the King of Hell himself. His power is the power of temptation and deals. He makes his deals so tempting by trying to make us give in to our desires. I refuse. I will not let him get the best of me. I will resist having a variance in my diet more than twice a week. I can't let the bastard win! Join me in this demon hunt! We will get there! With the Winchesters at my side and my NF friends cheering me on, we can make this happen! Demon 1 (Sugar): 0/2 Demon 2 (Gym): 0/2 Demon 3 (Variance): 0/2
  5. In honor of Halloween the Scout mini will be monster themed What? You were expecting this? Nope - we'll be trying to conquer our monsters! so strap on your runners and let's get hunting!
  6. Going to use this space to keep up with my goals during the winter break. Please follow along if you'd like or just drop in to say hello from time to time.
  7. WARNING! THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGE CONTAINS SUPERNATURAL SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. ALSO I HAVEN'T SEEN SEASON 9 OR 10 YET SO NO SPOILERS PLEASE! Welcome to the bunker bitches. I’m once again using this challenge to see what I can do and how far I can come. Last challenge I learned how to dolphin kick, and how to hold my breath. This challenge will be all fun and games….at least until someone gets shots in the chest with rock salt. My main focus will be to build up endurance, flexibility, and to have fun. (also Supernatural themed because I can) Main Quest: SEAL THE GATES OF HELL I get a lot of questionable doubt, both from myself and others around me. These are my demons. And they need to get back to hell. I want to build up my stamina and endurance, improve flexibility, and to gain strength. I want gain knowledge and use it as the lock and key to seal these demons away in hell. First Mission: ACQUIRE & SAFEKEEP THE DEMON TABLET I'll have to work hard to not only acquire the demon tablet, but make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong hands (*cough*Crowley*cough*) Mermaid training M & FParkour workout M-W-FO2 and/or CO2 training on Weds.This will work on my endurance, stamina, and strength. Things needed if I’m going up against demons. Second Mission: ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES When your trying to outsmart the King of Hell and run from Angels, while hunting down the things that go bump in the night…you gotta be kinda flexible. I will work on flexibility for at least 5 min or do yoga on my “off†days. Su-Te-Th-Sa Third Mission: DECIPHER THE DEMON TABLET It’s going to take a lot of work to decipher a tablet written in a language even Angels can’t understand. 5 min review vocab5 min grammar5 min reading5 min Kanji reviewI’ll have to do this every four hours (8,12,4,8). This will be on a point system. Each item is worth 1 “wordâ€, for a total of 16 “words†a day. Listening and reading podcast notes can substitute for 15 min of vocab, grammar, and reading. Fourth Mission: COMPLETE THE DEMON TRIALS There are three trials that need to be completed in order to seal the gates of hell. But I won’t know what these trials are until I decipher the demon tablet. Motivation: Always Keep Fighting I admire both Jared and Jensen as actors and as crazy human beings. Their characters in the show motivate me, but so does their campaign, Always Keep Fighting. That’s all the motivation I’ll need.
  8. Between Heaven and Hell.. Anything is possible. "Now I realize that there is no righteous path, it's just people trying to do their best in a world where it is far too easy to do your worst." -Castiel For the very first time in my life I have signed up for a 5K run, which is something that I never would have figured possible for a figure like myself. I know that I can do it, and I want to keep that mindset, not just at the beginning of year. I did already register, why waste the registration for a no show due to lack of self esteem and quit before I even try. So this challenge I plan on working towards getting into the habit of walking regularly, and building up my stamina/endurance. And of course being healthy comes for the ride with that overall quest as well.. so eating healthy is really something I want to stay more focused on as well. The strength is just a side challenge, to keep myself motivated. Goal #1: Highway to Hell You don't have to be ruled by fate, you can choose Freedom. And that is something that I believe is still worth fighting for." -Castiel Walk, walk, walk, and walk more until you fall to the ground and you cannot move. Pain is just another way of your body showing you that you're still alive, and well. I walk a block, and my legs are aching for me to stop.. but not anymore. I need to crawl before I can walk, and walk before I can run. I'd like to go for 3 walks per week, and try to pay more attention to the distance I am driving/parking to where I could have walked. Maybe if I acknowledge it more, I will create a new change in my life. +5 STAMINA AWARDED: upon completion of 3 walks within the week. BONUS +1 STAMINA – awarded for walking more than 3x. Goal #2: You are what you Eat. “Hey, see if they've got any pie. Bring me some pie. I love me some pie. “ -Dean Food is my worst battle, even more than exercise. I love me some exercise when I get to it, but I do love me some food to.. and not the healthy stuff or devils vegetables. A great big greasy burger and some onions, with some ice cream after for a finale. Being a woman is great, but pms is my weakness.. I eat crap for that week, and then carry on for the few weeks after that, and then POOF! It's that time again. Doh! So, my goal is to cook a healthy meal five days a week. +5 CONSTITUTION AWARDED - A or B grade 6-7 times per week – A 4-5 times per week – B 2-3 times per week – C 0-1 times per week – F Goal #3 - Slaying the Beast “These punishments, they’re almost poetic. Well, actually they’d be more like a limerick, but still...†- Dean I've found that through a previous challenge on another website, that I enjoyed strength training with weights. I would love to explore this new found love. I have a set of 5 and 15lb weights that I can use, now will be the fun of exploring different exercises. Knowing that I enjoy it, I don't want to set a goal to do a certain amount each day per week, but rather to LEARN a new type of exercise each day +5 STRENGTH AWARDED: A or B grade 6-7 learned – A 4-5 learned – B 2-3 learned – C 0-1 learned – F
  9. So I'm coming back to this, after a...month and a half?... of hiatus. Augh, I'm a Rebel level 0 again, since I didn't make it on my first challenge, but I'm okay with that, I think. Starting somewhere is the important part, right? I figure I'd reevaluate my goals, you know? I'm doing a Diabetes Prevention Program/class thing through work, though I'm not pre- or currently diabetic, but it's a good thing for me. Most of the information is stuff I know, though, so it's not super exciting, but it's another layer of accountability - one of the ladies I work with runs the meetings, so it's easy for her to come to my desk and ask me about progress or lack of reporting. It's...interesting. Anyway, so goals: My main mantra is something like "Training to be a Hunter" (Supernatural). Duh, show's not real, I'm a fan, not a lunatic. But I want to be strong like them, and be able to kick ass and be physically strong enough to take on demons and stuff, just minus all the dying (looking at you, Dean!). I'd like to be able to eventually run for a long distance without feeling like I'm dying, haul big bags and shove bodies around, all that good stuff. Mostly, I want my body in good working order to be able to do something physically demanding. Plus, if I can eventually have something that even resembles Winchester abs, hells yes I'm in. So here are my baby steps, all portioned out for a short-term goal of 1/1/15. Physical: Lose 10 pounds/one pants size by Jan. 1st, 2015: This will give me approximately 8 weeks to lose 1.25 pounds a week, which seems reasonable. It also will bring me 1.5 points lower for my BMI (47.1 to 45.6).Be more stringent about tracking - use the DPP class handout to more accurately track my calories (which means actual measuring, not eyeballing) and eat around 1800 calories daily (which is approx 600kc deficit)Do resistance yoga with the family 3x/week (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday - already doing this, woot!)Do weekly boxing unit at local dojo (Mondays) Mental (pending gym membership, maybe?) Run a 35-minute 5K on the elliptical by Jan. 1st. (I consider this a mental one, because I've rarely been able to run a sub-12-minute-mile, so this will help me grow in my confidence and self-esteem)Run 5K 1x/week in November, 2x/week in DecemberInterval training program on the elliptical 2x a week (add a day each week until 5x/week, then reevaluate)Steve's Mobility Stretches 3x/week (add a day each week until 7x/week)Spiritual Work on getting a solid 7 hours of sleep a night (usually I get around 5-6)No fussing with electronics after 10PM (no matter how many episodes of Supernatural I wanna watch, dammit) (and no phone at the bed, ya idjit!)Dinner finished (and hopefully eaten) by 10PMPack my bag and meditate/quiet time for 10 minutes before 10:30PM (bedtime)Starting weight: 310 Okay. Okay, so those are my goals for now. I'm doing No Junk November and cutting out candies and soda (again) so that will be super challenging. I /was/ going to start yesterday but was eating cake while I decided, and it all... went downhill from there. Sigh. Things I've got going for me/resources available to me: Weekly yoga with family: Free Weekly boxing unit: $10/week Weekly weigh-in at DPP: free Fitbit (that I don't know how to use): Free Gym Membership: ...$117/month?! I may have to reconsider the Mental goal. Okay. So, yeah, there's that. I still have some needs, like, I need to get myself in the habit of doing weekly meal prep, and get new running shoes, and maybe invest in some dumbbells and/or resistance bands, but I want to be as low-key and not crazy as possible. So, here's my log. I'm going to try again, and by god, if Castiel can drag the boys outta Hell, I can drag my sorry ass to these goals.
  10. Hey guys! So after bailing on the last two weeks of the previous challenge, I'm back! I'm glad to be here with the Rangers again, I just loved the mini missions last challenge Motivation/Life Quest: I've had a really rough time the past 4-ish months due to a death in the family. I've been letting myself go because of it, making excuses to not do anything, and basically just moping around. I know this is normal, but I need to stop throwing myself a pity party with a pizza every time I get upset. I need to take care of myself. This is a big portion of my "life" side mission, and part of my overall life quest. I need to value my health and myself in general more, I want to take pride in my life and how I eat and live. I shouldn't want to have a clean apartment so I'm not embarassed when I have guests. I should want a clean apartment because when I wake up to a clean apartment I'm happier. Why should I not value this happiness and make myself happier each morning with just a few quick cleaning sessions? My other main mission has been the same for a while... I want to get my back walkover back! I used to be able to do it... now I can't. I'm working on it. I got a wall handstand last challenge, and a backbend the challenge before that.... this challenge I'll be building more specifically towards a backwalkover progression. Main Missions: Be strong! I will strength train twice a week. One of these will be the ABWW, the other will be some heavy lifting. Same dumbbell olympic lifts I started working on last challenge. I can get a max of 3 +STR, and it is based on percentage of workouts completed gets me that percentage of 3 possible points, rounded to the nearest 0.25 points. Be Relaxed! Two yoga or cardio sessions a week. Both of these things help me relax in different ways, depending on my stress level (running helps relieve angry stress, yoga helps relieve sad stress). So I'll pick depending on my mood and get two sessions of one or the other done twice a week. Points are a possible +3 STA, same as above, based on percentage of level of effort. Be Bendy! Back walkover progression exercises 3 times a week. These can be quick 5 minute things tacked onto the end of another work out, or their own thing before I go to bed or when I wake up. I'll be doing rocking back bends and walking up the wall while in a backbend and eventually kicking over. 3 points of DEX. Same award system as above. Diet Side Mission: Eat Cleanly Eat whole food based, gluten free & cheese free. Cheese makes my tummy go ow. And I've discovered gluten makes me feel really bloated and lethargic by cutting it out for the most part last challenge. So I'm moving forward with this and going to try to go all the way these next weeks. Possible +3 CON. Same percentage points based on number of meals following these restrictions. Lift Side Mission: Take Pride in Myself & My Surroundings This ones kind of complicated. Basically, I want to do each of the following each weekday day to increase my pride, and happiness in myself and my surroundings: --Fly Lady Daily Mission --Scoop Cat Litter --Swish & Swipe Bathroom --Prep Breakfast & Lunch for the next day --Brush AND FLOSS my teeth --Wash my face before I go to bed --Moisturize before I go to bed. My face & my body. And here's my spreadsheet for the challenge with points broken up and pre-calculated as I fill it in over the challenge: *Notes* Since I'm starting this late, and my whole life if kind of a wreck (I need to go massively grocery shopping, set up a meal plan and get the mounds of clothes and shopping bags off my floor), I am using the remainder of this first week to get to base zero. Next week I will start really doing everything I listed above, and I will extend the challenge into the extra week between challenges. I will post every day here this week to say how I worked towards getting back into the swing of things though, so I won't just be slacking off this week! Anyway, it feels great to be back. And I can't wait to go catch up on everyones threads
