  1. Balsquith regroups I crashed and burned in the last challenge, which fitted into the general scheme of the past 3 months of challenges. Even though there has probably been no difference between these challenges and the 6-week ones, they somehow felt more frantic and I never felt that I was really keeping up. Bizarrely this one week pause has been amazing and I feel really focused for the challenge to come. I will be keeping it simple this challenge and bringing out the best goals from previous challenges in addition to one all new one involving green things.
  2. Sea Level reporting for duty again for April challenge, my fourth of the year, and my third with the Rangers! Woot! I went a long time last year without any activity or any challenge. I hit up the challenges at the end of the year again with the Assassins, and it got me back into the groove. Then I made a move to the Rangers with Wolfie's encouragement, and here I am: not going anywhere. Y'all are awesome. This time I'm straying from my Megaman theme, but I'll probably bring him back in the future. But for now.... I: Step over to the Abdominator, and I will
  3. Quest 1, Get the Glutes: In order to achieve muscular balance she will: Continue to perform 4 strength exercises 4 times a week. Two days a week, can be on one of these 4 days or on what would normally be a rest day, perform 3 glute specific accessory work (clam shells, monster walks, seated hip abduction, hip thrusts, glute bridges, etc). Be a bad-ass like Captain Jack O'Neill. Quest 2, Give up the Gut All dem proteins making me feel bloated. Eat 1 cup of vegetables at lunch and at dinner, or in general twice a day. Even with a Goa'uld
  4. Well I had a lot of fun and did pretty well on my first challenge and I am back for round 2. Goal: My goal is to lose 12 lbs over the course of this challenge. In order to do this I will have to disregard the life lessons that I have from one of this generation's greatest minds. Quest 1: Workout 6 days per week. I will be doing the Stronglifts 5x5 program three days per week, working with my trainer 1 day a week and doing steady state cardio on the elliptical 2 days per week. Quest 2: I will eat vegetables with at least one meal every day. Quest 3: No fast food. If it has
  5. Welcome! I'm back for the second challenge of 2016. Working off my last challenge, I decided I needed to get a little bit real about my goals and aspirations. My long term goal is to run the International Marathon here in Sacramento as a relay run with my brother. That means we will each run a half marathon that will be split into two runs each. This is happening in December, but I want to start prepping my pretties (legs) for it. What I do from here on out, will be focusing on that master goal. Without further delay, let's get on our way Goal 1: Run, baby run! For this goal, I will ru
  6. So hey there fellow Rangers. Last challenge, I flaked out a bit in the end. I was a little sick, but really I have no excuse. I did have some positive momentum, and I want to continue to build on that. This challenge will provide me with one big obstacle. The Family Vacation. There will be a couple of days of travel. Most likely, I'll have to write those two days off. Probably something like 7-8 hours of driving February 13th-20th will be vacation time. That week, I will modify my goals. I want to still keep on track, and be able to enjoy the time off. We are heading down to
  7. I'm a little late to this challenge, and it's a short one. So let's keep it simple! Main Goal: Track everything I eat for the final 3 weeks of the challenge. I've managed to lose about 10 pounds since the summer, and I really want to see that total loss continue to go up. Being aware of how much I'm eating is the first step towards making that happen, but one that I really struggle to stick with, especially if I miss tracking even a single meal. The truth is though, it isn't a very difficult thing to do. If I can fart around on the internet for an hour plus every day, I can find 10 minute
  8. Back Story: Goals Over-arching goals: 1. 150 sweets challenge. I will eat less than 150 sweets in 2016. Drinks count. 2. 366 days of greens challenge. I will eat greens every single day this year. 3. 36600 push ups challenge. 100 Push ups a day. Bonus: Glad if I can do. I wouldn't beat myself over it. 1. Ending 2016 with an NF post. I missed it last time, and I plan to carry it through the year this time! 2. Ending 2016 with at least 40 consecutive weeks of creative writing. This Challenge: Food I think the main problem with food for me last time is still sweets, and my plan is to
  9. All excuses aside, I'm going down this month. My main quest is weight loss, and I've been to wimpy to reflect that in my goals lately. I've had some lovely side quests. I found some delicious foods to cook and I've squatted an intimidating bar. But my weight loss goal has plateau'd because I've been avoiding it, plain and simple. Holidays are over, and I am striking back with a vengeance. Goal 1. Healthy Eating I am shooting for six out of seven days of healthy eating. This works with my own personal checklist that includes eating lots of vegetables and reasonable portion sizes. I wi
  10. Greeting, friends. This challenge sees me returning to an older ethic of diet and exercise while continuing to cultivate musical skills. In many ways, it represents a return to the things that surrounded me in childhood -- music, imagination, natural exercise and my grandmother's garden. Like one or two others, I've chosen to also renew an interest in the elements to frame the work: Earth: Body. Focus on Nutrition Following the best advice I've ever seen via 'In Defense of Food' - eat (real) food, not too much, mostly plants - my goals are: 1. Plant-based food in every meal, eaten first. 2.
  11. I can't believe I pulled this off... My 3rd quest for this month is to make a meal for 3 people with heavy dietary restrictions. I'd completed this week's quest on Tuesday with a ginger chicken chili (no nightshades), and had made a broth using the bones from the chicken. Sooooooooooo tonight I'd had a random thought about udon (and who doesn't?) and yesterday the Dragon (ie husband) had roasted chicken/carrots/brussel sprouts that were A. really tasty and B. hadn't gotten very soft, so we tossed those in with some extra chicken, let it boil, added the udon and O_O OMG.... The broth ha
  12. I am Phytomancer, worshipper of rain, mover of earth, protector of trees, and the priest of the urban forests. Rain gardens are my shrines, and parks are my sanctuary. In the last challenge, I have recruited a few villains who enjoy the color green as much as I do. But villains have ulterior motives, and they are a bit spiteful. They don't make great minions. Previously a minion myself, I need the part of the army that is more... loyal. And I thought of the nature spirits. The tales across nations mention the spirits of nature in some kind. They are mostly kind, protective, and loya
  13. WARNING: MASSIVE HUGE BRAIN VOMIT AHEAD. FEEL FREE TO SCROLL DOWN TO THE OTHER SHTUFF (labeled as such for your convenience) Heads up: my wordsplosion below, while it obviously has impacted what I chose as my goals, doesn’t really have a ton to do with my challenge, and aside from the mega nerd love and life leveling up description to follow, it’s not really nerd related either. I just felt the need to get this stuff out there, kind of as a re-intro for me, or updated Raxie background… or something. This challenge happens to fall upon a very meaningful/kind of emotion heavy time of ye
  14. The forum keeps timing out - this is my third try to post this.. http://www.pbs.org/video/2365635287/
  15. Merry Autumn, everyone! This challenge will be the twelfth of a dozen documented attempts now, and I'm still floating around the same weight I've been for years. I cannot seem to control the amount and quality of the food I eat for more than a couple of weeks, so you know what? This time, I'm not even going to bother imposing a calorie limit or a portion size limit, I'm just going to say: Goal 1: Eat whatever I damn well like. But: I have to cook it myself, from scratch, using items that are recognisable as bits of plant, fungus, bits-of-plant-or-fungus-that-have-been-turned-into-
  16. Hiiiii! I'm going to say right away that I didn't do totally awesome my first two challenges - but if I combine the things I did achieve in them, they add up to approximately one whole successful challenge...so here I am! I'm traveling for the next three weeks, so I can't commit to anything super ambitious, but I still want to aim for things that I can achieve even with the uncertainty and upended schedules of traveling. Some of these goals may be modified for the second three weeks when I'm back home. 1. Go for a run at least three times a week. I'm thinking about probably running a hal
  17. Sorry if this is a repeated topic. I'm trying to clean up my diet, I'm starting to try and cut carbs and sugar, drinking more water, etc, but so far my biggest hurdle has been getting more vegetables in. I'm okay with salads with lettuce, spinach, etc. and some raw vegetables such as cucumber, carrots, broccoli, and I'm even becoming accustomed to tomatoes even though I didn't like them very much before. But if I eat roasted or cooked vegetables I can't get over the bitter taste and I feel like I'm going to puke after a few bites. I'd be okay with eating more raw vegetables but I keep gett
  18. Hello! I can ramble sometimes, so I'll try to get right to the point here: my boyfriend and I are about to start the whole babymaking thing, and I want to be as healthy as possible in order to provide a good environment for our potential future human. I'm not particularly unhealthy at the moment, but I could certainly stand to lose some weight and eat a bit better, and I've been slacking on exercise lately. [Disclaimer: I'm sure you all get it, but just in case, please don't be offended by my calling babies-to-be parasites. I mean, they *do* live off their mothers' life forces...but they're
  19. (Note: I had a much better introduction but my first post was eaten by the inter-webs) Main Quest : Unassisted Pull Up Strength Goal: More pull-ups than week before. Test myself every Saturday. Starting with 3. .5 strength points for each week I have more band-assisted pull-ups.Can be:longer hang-timemore band-assisted pull upsmore negative pull-ups (let downs)3 strength pts Stamina Goal: longer workouts than the work beforeCan be total weekly mileage (runs)Total weekly mileage (bike)Total weekly distance rowed (metric)Total amount of time spent doing cardio3 stamina pts Constitutio
  20. WHAT'S UP MY NERDFITNESS PEEPS!!! BLACKTEZCA IS BACK AND ROCKING OUT WITH THE MONKS!! Man already the new forums are up! Awesome! Let's do this! I'm BlackTezca, you may remember from such topics as From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel!, BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards Feline Greatness, and my personal favorite BlackTezca's 1st Trial: Become an Artsy, Geeky Amazon. I'm continuing on my journey towards geeky, otaku, Amazon awesomeness and for this challenge (and the next since I plan ahead), I'll be with my martial art loving peeps. There won't be a whole lot of martials arts for this challe
  21. As the title suggests, this challenge is all about acquiring as much money as possible. Most of my mental breakdowns have been triggered by money-related things, and my fear of getting evicted and living in poverty. Student loan repayments are also approaching soon, and more bills are coming in, and my work hours are getting cut, and fuck everything I HATE LIFE AND EVERYTHING IS HOPELESS I need to have as much money as possible so that I can keep doing the things that I still enjoy: going to the gym and cosplaying. Since making money will involve selling some of my old things, this challenge
  22. Main Quest: Fit into size 7 jeans by Nov 27, 2015 I'm pretty proud of myself that I have managed to develop a consistent exercise regime over these past few months! I've noticed changes in my body and people have commented on how great I am looking. I feel stronger, happier, and more confident (WAY more confident) about myself. There IS such a thing as an Amazonian Hobbit, I am sure of it! SO! Develop excellent exercise habits and build a bunch of muscle? Check! Drop body fat so that I can actually SEE those muscles? Ummm............ I'm still in size 12 jeans, though they are loose eno
  23. I was thinking about starting a veggie of the week thread and I just want to see how into it people might be. If everyone is kind of meh, I might skip it. So each week I would pick a vegetable, one that is less loved or that people might not have tried, and I'll give a recipe and some recommendations for what it goes with. People could contribute their own, so it'll end up like sort of a weekly cookbook for a particular kind of vegetable. It would be sort of like an Iron Chef battle ingredient type deal. People can like the ones they try and enjoy. I wouldn't really stick to vegan or paleo,
  24. Hi, I am a 26 year old college student majoring in Russian and planning a wedding with my fiance for fall of 2015. I am a huge Star Trek fan - nerdy jokes about warp cores have gotten me dates, that's how huge a fan I am. I am also a voracious reader of mostly fantasy but also sci fi and non fiction too. I'm particularly fond of epistolary novels and memoirs. As of my last doctor's visit I weigh about 235 pounds. I only get weighed there, but since I have a chronic condition I get weighed about every 3 months or so. From comparing myself to photos on a NF article I would estimate I am betwee
  25. I'm not a big veggie person, though I eat a decent amount. But it's usually boring since I don't usually have a lot of time to prepare and I'm not the best, most creative chef. Sometimes, like on weekends if I'm free, I'll make stuff that takes more time, but often I just take out some plain frozen veggie mixes and cook them in bacon fat or toss some butter on them. I've tried throwing some seasonings on but they end up being either the wrong ones or not enough or something. Does anyone have any good, fast veggie recipes? I'm tired of eating the same stuff! My lunches have been so boring lat
