  1. Hi darlings, I'm a little late to start this challenge because things are REALLY STRESSFUL. * I have a big proposal that is due next week, and I'm kind of managing all the cats. * I have another project where things aren't going as well as they should be basically, for the last 2 weeks I've been waking up randomly at early hours in the morning because stress. I've been busier than I ought to be at work (LIKE WHOA). in times like these, I need to fall back on my good healthy routines. so, simple challenge, very much like last time: * keep going to the gym classes

    Hey everyone, People may have seen me here, I've been in the community for a while now although this is only my second 4 week challenge. Little about me, I'm a black belt in Taekwondo, I'm in my last semester of college working on getting selected for usmc officer training school. I like cooking, video games (skyrim is my favorite modern one), I enjoy most of nerdy stuff particularly star wars and lotr. On to my Questin Main quest: Become a master of martial arts. Side quests: Work on my meditation habit Not feel terrible about my diet Tasks for
  3. I'm still trying to get my feet back underneath me and don't want to be overly ambitious this challenge. here's the deal: SPRING IS COMING. (she says as she sits watching the snow fall). MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING! it's April 15. YAY. MY 4 YEAR NERDIVERSARY IS COMING! that day is April 14th. so, what am I going to do about it? * think about what my yard plan will be for the year. THIS IS A TRICK QUESTION. I have never succeeded at yarn planning or any kind of large scale yard work / maintenance program. we'll see what happens. * keep going to the gym cla
  4. hi friends. I've been feeling kind of lost, and not very assassiny for the last month+. I think I have a stress-hangover? after the last year with my dad's illness and the hard work I'm doing at my day job, and then taking over instructing tkd.... it's been kind of a lot. so, I did a yoga challenge in january, and I've been going to tkd, and that's about it. but I miss you, and I miss moving my body! the problem is -- nothing seems awesome. running doesn't sound awesome (I know, I know, you told me so, multiple assassins!), I am not interested in coming up with my own p
  5. it's august! it's hectic! I'm going to have a big august that will need to be weekifIed, and can only be unified by the training I have to do for the 8K I am signing up for on the VERY LAST DAY OF THE CHALLENGE! GOALS! * Do the Hal Hidgon Running Thing - which also includes getting the movements in on the other days, too. I'm following the HH 8K Novice program which I've done a few times before and like a lot. I'm already on week 7, what is this magicalness? out of a total of 8 weeks.... so this week I will do 7, next week 6, the following week 7, and then I'll hav
  6. Time to cycle into summer! I feel kind of low-key clever with that title, because it means so many things: * I'll be cycling weeks - this week is good and possibly reasonable, but next week I am on vacation and things might get nuts. good nuts, like, on vacation nuts, but that means calorie restriction might be higher during week 2. * which is the second pun, I'll be motorCYCLING (lolz wokka wokka thanks I'll be here all night) * and then summer happens, right? on June 21, whether we are ready for it or not. So after vacation I need to cycle back into a better
  7. yo dudes, I am gaining weight again. I mean, I'm still down from my start weight! but, over the last two months I definitely gained a bit. But that's ok, because I am UNSTOPPABLE in the sense that I literally perhaps do not know how to stop. So I am going to UNSTOPPABLY STOP this weight gain. I BELIEVE! MAIN QUEST LOSE FAT. This could be signified by either losing weight, or using fancy schmancy tracking tools (wifi scale, skulpt device, measurements, photos) to double check. In an effort to be more scientific-like, I went ba
  8. Last challenge was a hot mess. I tried! but things came up. I think I did reasonably well considering: * a week 1 emergency health thing (not me) and a trip to florida to mug with my sick daddy-o (still doing awesome, by the way) * a week 2 presidential election that resulted in me being actually depressed for the first time in literally forever, and requiring lots of quiet self care * a week 3 where we had the kids every day b/c of their mom's work travel, impinging on our planned gym time for goals, and * a week 4 with a planned and much enjoyed visit to icela
  9. I mentioned on another thread a theory that is very attractive, which is that as we pass through fall and approach winter we should expect to do less and sleep more and want to be at home more because it's the season for HIBERNATION. ok, LET'S ALL BE BEARS. my interests are shifting pretty rapidly because, you know, ASSASSIN PROBLEMS. also experience has proven that I'm not very good at hibernating or not doing everything I want to do. so this challenge here we go now! * go to the gym. it's cold and dark and I am not interested i
  10. Taekwondo is a relatively new martial art from Korea. There are five main Korean dojang, and after the Japanese occupation of Korea, a council was formed to try to unify the schools in 1955. It was then that the term Taekwondo was coined. Tae = Hand or fist Kwon = Foot or kicking Do = Style or way. I have heard of three federations of Taekwondo. WTF - World Taekwondo Federation (Olympic Taekwondo) ITF - International Taekwondo Federation ATA - American Taekwondo Association Taekwondo has a strong emphasis on kicking. The theory behind this is that the legs are the largest of the
  11. Alrighty, I am a 43 year old woman of varying talents and skills. I am a mom to 2 teenage boys, one with HF autism/aspergers, depending on who you ask. I am almost step mom to another teenage boy, preteen boy and cutie pie little girl. I also raised my 23 year old nephew I have gone from being in what I considered amazing health and fitness to less than fit and tired. I have lost both my parents, and gone through divorce. I have been on the divorce diet and lost too much weight in a very unhealthy way. I have gained that back and then some due to lack of movement and loving all food. My
  12. My Second Challenge, Yay! If the doc approves running and working out, I'll edit my challenge after my Dr. appt. on Jan. 9th. He said there's no real reason to not be active. If my tailbone starts hurting again, call him and we'll see if a shot helps again. Even if it does take 2.5 weeks to kick in. But didn't want to continue procrastinating on my other goals. I need to make space, in my house and in my life. I think it will help me feel motivated and a little more in control. So to work on this, 1. I'm going to get rid of 1 thing every day. I am awful at waking up on time.
  13. Ok, this challenge is going to be simple and straightforward. I probably will not do anything with the run-on story. And I will be online less than I have been for the previous 9 months. We moved. I am really enjoying being back in my home town in Minnesota. I love the new house. Life is good, but it is also really busy with unpacking and decorating, new jobs, and tons of fun things to do. I don't think I really fully grasped how limited my life (especially social) had become. I have already auditioned for (and made it into) the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra's Chorale!! It'
  14. Last challenge I tried to do too many things and ended up finishing only one. This time around, I'm going to follow KISS and simplify. My overarching fitness goals for the year are to keep getting better at TKD (keep leveling up!), to be able to to the splits and a pull-up. To do this I need to get stronger and have more stamina. Goals for this challenge: Sleep at least 7 hours at least 6 nights/week. I am really bad about staying up too late reading, playing Skyrim, or messing around on the computer. This has to stop. I don't play well with others when I haven't had enough sleep. (+1
  15. So I totally bombed the last challenge by getting sick and only sleeping and working for 3 weeks. Couldn't quite get it back together after that. So I'm going basic on this challenge, to get myself back in the groove. Long-term goal - to get and stay fit and healthy. Motivation: my son and husband - I want to enjoy a long and healthy life with both of them. I will be 55 when my son graduates from high-school. I do not want to be a burden to him. Also, I want the term "bad-ass chick" to apply to me! My husband and I started Tae Kwon Do 2 weeks ago (our 6 year old son has been going s
  16. Starting point: I used to be awesome and I'm not awesome any more. I was thin and strong and flexible and fit and comfortable in my skin, and a few years later I am none of those things. Weight: 63 kg. I don't give a crap how much I weigh. I don't get lifted in the air for my job (although would love a go at figure-skating doubles) so it doesn't really matter. I just want to be less fatty and weak and tonelessJeans: I'm stuffed into my jeans. They pinch like crazy (don't even think about sitting down in them. Standing room only!)Body fat: 20.3%. I have a weighing scale that calculates body fat
  17. I discovered NerdFitness just a few days ago. Excited to join y'all. My four goals are: 1. Reduce body fat percentage by three points, from 32% to 29%. (I am a woman.) 2. Start building myscle in my arms (and shoulders and chest) 2x/week. 3. Continue my routine of TKD 3x/week, bike/run/walk 2x/week. I'm planning on leveling up to blue stripe during the 6-week challenge. 4. Stick to the paleo diet (I started this week). This should be both the easiest and the hardest one for me. I've had no problems sticking to the paleo plan so far (today is Day 4), but the idea of eating meat e
