  1. I have never done this before so I am attempting to kinda make this into a story kinda plot line for my own amusement. Maybe it will help me out and actually keep on top of things, My goals are going to be pretty much circus/ strength training. Goal 1: Fitness 5 training sessions/week (usually i am at the studio Monday- Thursday 1-3 classes a day) (3) Run 1x/week (3) Walk 1-3 miles a week. ( I see this as reasonable since Pokemon Go keeps me moving most of the day!) (3) Goal 2: Circus Goals Conti
  2. Hey everyone, familiar and new I'm a 25-year-old guy living in Cambridge UK, and I like doing: gymnastics (floor and rings) bodyweight work football (soccer) weightlifting bouldering salsa dancing ...and because that isn't enough, I've signed up for a trapeze course, which starts next Tuesday I'm also training to represent the UK at mental calculation at two events in September and November this year. I did a lot of work on this in the Jan/Feb challenges and there will be a small amount during April in order to qualify.
  3. Yup, that's right, it's time for a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy challenge! I absolutely love H2G2 - the book series is probably what first got me properly into sci-fi (albeit comedic sci-fi). Douglas Adams was a genius as far as I'm concerned! Quest 1 - A trip to Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe No intergalactic hitch hiking trip would be complete without a trip to Milliways and it's going to be the inspiration for the diet portion of my challenge. In the last challenge I focussed on increasing my fruit and veg intake, and did better than I expected, so t
  4. Just wanted to have a place to start writing things down again. I've been away from NF for about five weeks. Spent most of the month of September either ramping up the school year where I work (CU Boulder), or on vacation in the Pacific Northwest (North WET!), or on a business trip to the greater DC area for work. Mind you I wasn't a couch potato during any of that, though the days with the 12-14 hour drives were pretty rough, non-moving-wise. But since there's a 6-week challenge currently underway, I thought I'd start posting what I've been up to here at least as a form of self-accountabi
  5. One of my all-time favorite movie series was Peter Jackson's version of The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. Such a rich story, brought to life in a way that was beautiful and amazing on so many levels. Not to mention shot in my favorite place, New Zealand. Anyway, what better way to frame my upcoming challenge than through the richness that is the fellowship of the ring. 1. The grace and beauty of the elves: Music We just got a piano! I used to play... and I want to get better. So I'm going to practice. Five days a week, I'll practice 20 min or more. Starting with some Ha
  6. Working on a show, as usual, has taken its toll on my family life. It was a busy six week rehearsal process, and we have two weekends of shows left. I’m planning on taking Hoop 3/4 at the aerial studio, but I want to use this challenge to focus my energies on playing with my son and taking care of our house, rather than on feats of strength and endurance. Not, of course, that I won’t continue to work out, and eat right, but that I’ll be doing those things while focusing on my own family life and home. 1. Man of Steel Six days a week, mixing it up. I’ll run, ride, lift, dance,
  7. It's another new challenge! This time around I want to work on my flexibility, because it will help me with my aerial work, and I want to work on accuracy with my bow, because I really like hitting things with arrows. I've got a solid workout schedule in place, which is good, but I need to tweak it a bit to make it work for me. Finally, I'd like to continue my progress with meditation, because it helps me handle work, life, family, and the balancing act that is all those things. Last time around I realized I don't do well with extended periods of massive dietary restrictions, nor do I
  8. Who is the most bad-assed, strong, fearless, "normal" superhero out there? That's right. It's Daredevil. Does he have super-powers? Sure, but they're not physical. He's got his strength, his iron will, and his enhanced senses. Despite the fact that he is blind, he senses are honed to the point where he perceives his environment better than sighted people do. He's the ultimate acrobat, aerialist, and an expert marksman. In short, despite the fact that he is a hero and doesn't generally kill, he is the ultimate assassin. THE MAIN QUEST: To be come a bad-assed aerial assassin li
  9. Welcome to my next six week challenge! This time around, I am starting off feeling pretty good about my body. I weigh a pretty consistent 155-160 lbs, and don't have a lot of fat left to burn. Of course the last time I checked I had a 16.8% body fat measurement, and that seemed alright by me. BUT, I'd like to reduce it, while building up some muscle. I also know that the weakest part of my aerial work is my flexibility, so that is going to be the focus of this challenge, all while building and maintaining habits to keep me healthy and strong. Since I'm an assassin, I intend to become mor
  10. This is my third challenge and my first with the Rangers! I am working on a little bit of everything so I figured this would be a fun guild to try. Little about myself: I decided to completely overhaul myself around a year and half ago. I had gotten quite overweight in grad school and lacked any athletic ability whatsoever. I have since cleaned up my diet, lost over 60lbs (about 30 to go!), and I am loving finding new ways to be active. I have gone from not being able to run a mile to completing a half marathon and have found a passion for the trapeze and hanging upside down. I am also a huge
  11. Hello! This is my second challenge and my first as an assassin! MAIN QUEST: Lose fat, gain some muscle, feel comfortable in my own skin. I have already lost close to 65 lbs. (mostly from diet changes, I follow a ketogenic diet and have never felt better!) and I would like to lose another 20-40 lbs. I mainly want to get stronger and feel comfortable in my body so the number on the scale is less important to me than the way I feel. I want to maximize what my body is capable of- use my body efficiently, run faster, and master some cool aerial tricks- and I know I need to drop some weight to
  12. So its week three and I am restarting my second challenge from earlier this year, because I sort of fell off the face of the nerdfitness planet. I found out I was pregnant (again), had to stop working out, and then miscarried in April. So I spent the last two months trying to pick up the pieces and I'm ready to get to it again. I will post my challenge goals later tonight after trapeze class, but I'm basically going to be focusing on aerial silks, trapeze, and calisthenics this challenge. Peace and love!
  13. Diving in after lurking around the boards for the past few weeks! My starting stats: 249 lbs, chest 50, waist 41, hips 51 Main Quest: Get smaller/ Get Stronger/ Get a baby! I feel like this wording implies I will be using my new found size and strength to steal babies. Edited to add some actual targets here. My goal by the end of this challenge will be to lose 10lbs or 1 inch off of my chest, waist and hips. My overall goal is too lose 50 lbs by then end of August 2014. This is all the weight I gained over the past 10 years since I graduated college and it's time to get rid of it! Mi
  14. My overall goal is to be awesome like this: I’m here, making a late start to the challenge! The last month has been full of travel, studying and a lot of life changes. My husband just left for work on the other side of the country and I just started term 4 of medical school, and I am just now getting grounded enough to start this challenge. Last challenge was really good for me in terms of being active, but eating well was a struggle (especially towards the last few weeks). In this challenge, I want to keep working towards my main quest of self-acceptance and being able to do awesome s
  15. Hello fellow assassins! First challenge completed last month, second starts tomorrow! Main quest: as in the title, no one specific goal but lots of smaller goals. Goals below followed by current status: One real unassisted pull-up - six assisted with foot on chair. One real unassisted chin-up - ditto. 90 degree pike on trapeze/pull-up bar - feet are currently about a foot off the ground. Do the splits properly, down to the ground - am about a foot off the ground with hips square. Complete a handstand - hate being upside down, can manage one minutes practise before arms shake. 20 push-ups in
  16. Hi all This is my first challenge. Fitness was never a pleasure for me when doing it for it's own sake.I am naturally lazy. Dance was my first love! A few years ago I discovered pole dance and aerial silks/hoop/trapeze.I found myself wanting to do pushups/V ups/leg raises and running so that I could get better at my sport! My body type is not naturally agile, however I gain both muscle and fat easily. I wish my starting race was an elf..but I'm more like a cross between a dwarf and an orc?I am naturally quite flexible and if I was a superhero I would be Elastigirl!I used to say I had the wea
