  1. I'm keeping this one really simple and focusing on eating habits. For the last year, I've been trapped in this vicious workout cycle, where I push too hard because I want to do the things I used to be able to do, I strain something, and then I'm sidelined for a bit. So, I'm backing away from pushing myself in the physical arena and instead pushing myself with better eating. Also, the kids start (virtual) school next Thursday, so I need to keep things easy and loose this challenge. Goals: 1. Delay the meals. Whenever I have a yogurt and coffee at 7:00, lunch around 1:00,
  2. BODY I just realized how out-of-shape I am when I was out of breath I was while I was cutting weeds in the yard. I almost passed out from the heat after mowing the lawn the other day, and I have to deal with what reminds me of the beginnings of an asthma attack from my youth. This is bad. I also recently did blood tests, and I have a horrendous cholesterol profile (high LDL, low HDL), high liver enzymes, terrible kidney health, constant borderline hypertension, and total Testosterone of like 300. Though it's tempting to "hack" my T levels to get teh gainz, I'm thinking the best way wou
  3. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My Motivation I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I might even push to only have 1 blow meal per weekend, but that’s hard. I enjoy doing themed workouts and for this challenge it will be properly 300-themed since my main subquest is the Spartan Trials. Smaller Quests 1. “This is Spartaaaa!” -King Leonidas = Spartan Trials (strength & tone)
  4. I'm continuing my studies at Hogwarts, with many of the same themes. Hopefully, this time I don't pull a 3rd year Hermione and bite off more than I can chew. New Classes: Herbology: Goal is one new cooking recipe each week. Also, evening snack must include a veggie. I'm hoping to reduce and make my snacking healthier, and add a little bit more excitement to my diet. Arithmancy: Goal: Complete the entire 3rd problem set 8 problems selected from the 3rd problem set on cryptopals.com or from projecteuler.net (difficulty rating must be 40% or hig
  5. It’s time for Jonesy's Magical Christmas! 2017 is coming to an end and it’s time to bring my Disney theme to a close. This year has been a year of fantasy and disbelief. I’m not exactly where I want to be health and fitness wise but I’ve done a lot of good things this year. To end the year I want to focus on the Holiday and enjoying the season. Holiday Funtivities I have a few activities planned and have created an advent calendar for even more fun! I’ll post either a picture or a description of the activity I have been tasked with. Calendar must be completed by De
  6. Come one, come all! Join my Disney pals in celebrating my NerdFitness Anniversary! November 5th is my official 5 year NF Anniversary. To celebrate I’m going to challenge myself to do my original challenge. Although I’m making a few tweaks based on my end of challenge results because I still hate the morning mile and because I’ve learned a lot in 5 years Oswald is going to remind me what my original goals were, right after he gets done fighting this guy… ORIGINAL - Back when challenges were 6 weeks and we still used stats
  7. Hi, I'm Raptron. I do gymnastics, lift weights, and fill in the rest with the occasional run, visit to the stadium, hike, yoga session, bouldering session, etc. I like doing things. I also like people. Hello, people! This challenge doesn't officially start for a while, but I am going to post in it anyway. 1. Atomic Breath Weapon Skreeeeeeonk~! *Idk, work out like you normally do? Rapzilla's bread and butter. Doing the work is how we defeat all enemies. This goal is just phoning it it because Rapzillas gotta move or they get sad anyway.
  8. Mission Log: Practice Makes Perfect Putting my goals for the next challenge out here now.... may tweak and finalize the goals through zero week but here they are for now. Also guess what I've been watching lately Tracking Spreadsheet Maintenance: Cardio - 60 min / week Strength - 30 min / week Yoga - 45 min / week Water - 2 L / day Nutrition: 5 servings/day of produce Breakfast Ideas: Homemade Smoothies Fruit + Yogurt Veggie Omelettes Lunch Ideas:
  9. Okay, I had some time off this winter to be a lazy slug, but I am getting back in the game! Target is 80% of days. Aside from helping partner, these are all habits I've done fairly consistently in the past, and have worked well for me. 1- Daily Fitness Activity Some type of strength-building activity, and some yoga, every day. 2- Eat Adult Meals One meal a day has a reasonable portion if protein and veggies. 3- Help partner get fit My partner asked me to prompt him daily to do some physical activity. His health is not great, so probably garden
  10. Hey everyone, complete newbie here hoping to have some fun with the assassins I've been a member of NF for about 6 months now, but never got round to checking out the forums. I very recently had to respawn so I thought 'why not'? After all, there's a lot of cool-lookin' stuff going on in here My personal challenge is a simple one of pure self-improvement; strength training, cardio, drinking more often, and eating more veggies (and potatoes, oddly enough - versatile things, spuds): At the moment I can do about 24 push-ups in a minute, I would very much like
  11. Hello! I am a new member to NF and am just beginning my journey towards fitness. However, I hate veggies. I absolutely refuse to eat almost every single vegetable there is. Does anyone have any recipes I could try to try and like my vegetables more? Thank you!
  12. As I stated in my Battle Log, there is nothing quite like a little time with the folks and a new year to put some gas on the fire of lifestyle change!!!! I will be adding more headspace type challenges later in the year to that end. I am processing so much right now I couldn't even put together my thoughts in time for the challenge. There is much I want to address in that arena. Exercise and diet first though... I've discovered in my time here that I cannot jump into things with the vigor I would like. I am more prone to injury and over-doing for whatever reason, perhap
  13. MON MOTHRA'S TURKEY CHILI Makes 6 Servings Ingredients 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey 4 medium carrots, diced 2 small yellow onions, chopped 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped 1 red bell pepper chopped 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes w/ liquid 2 15 oz cans red beans, rinsed 2 tbsp. chili powder 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour* 1 tbsp. ground cumin; 1/2 tbsp. dried hot red pepper flakes 1 tbsp. dried oregano 1 cup chicken stock or broth Olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  14. Hello! I'm back! Also, I've been watching a lot of 30 Rock so bear with me... Last challenge was mostly successful but some of the big takeaways were these: Sleep is awesome. How did I forget that sleep is so great? Breakfast doesn't have to be a huge pain, inconvenient or packed with sugar. Movement is movement. I don't have to spend an hour at the gym to accomplish my exercise goals- I just need to be mindful about getting it in where I can. Meal planning is my friend: spending an hour or two at the beginning of the week to figure out my m
  15. So after a fairly successful return with my last challenge, I am moving on and planning to add a little bit more to this challenge. Goal My goal for this challenge is to lose 12 lbs. Quests More Lifting: I am switching up to the Jonnie Candito's Linear Program with this challenge. I liked following Greyskull, but I want to move to a 4 days a week lifting scheme. Over the course of the challenge there will be 20 lifting sessions. More Veggies: I will have at least 1 vegetable and 1 fruit every day. I would like to transition over to a paleo-type
  16. My injuries are healing, but now I must regain my power, my speed and endurance. I have journeyed far across the land to my new home and now I much be ready to not just survive, but to thrive. I have settled into my new home and my new job. I have started a routine that I need to improve to accomplish the challenging goals ahead of me. Like most cats I like short periods of activity followed by rest. I must be wary that in my nights off I am still seeking that activity, not just resting. My endurance is lacking so I just bought a new pair or running shoes so it’s time to break them
  17. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I've managed to put on some muscle in an effort to become stronger by weightlifting and I’ve discovered that I love lifting heavy things! I enjoy doing themed workouts and for this challenge it will be valkyries; proper female warriors! Smaller Quests 1. Weights It’s time to get back to lifting all the he
  18. I've been scrolling through trying to find a forum about recipes/protein shakes. I have found a few interesting ideas with meal plans but nothing about protein shakes people make themselves at home with simple ingredients. If anyone has a favorite shake or recipe I would love to hear what it is. I'm trying to kick my hubbys booty in gear with eating a healthier diet and he loves making shakes and protein drinks. He passionately dislikes veggies but has been making progress due to my meal plans. We made spaghetti squash "pasta" but after the first few bites he decided to give it to
  19. Possible DA O spoilers Oh welcome back! If you are here to see how we did against the Darkspawn you might be disappointed. I know I’m pissed as hell! Let me fill you in. Alistair and I did get to see a little darkspawn action while we raced to light the beacon in order to signal the army. When we got up to the top we fought this wicked big troll, which we totally killed. We barely managed to light the Beacon and send out the signal. The coward Loghain turned tail and King Cailan’s army fell. Duncan fell. Alistair and I only escaped
  20. "The Road to Success is not a Path you Find, but a Trail you Blaze." -Robert Brault- Tired of falling backward when it's Spring and I should be leaping forward! I see there've been some changes around here since the last Challenge I attempted, so let's see if I can get back into the swing of things with you guys. I'm really glad Adventurer is its own guild now and not just a place for people who don't know what other guild to be in. Adventurers are awesome! I love hiking and climbing so I feel like this is where I belong. Let's start with the basic
  21. I'm coming over to the druids for this challenge since it's mostly about self refection and improvement. I have lost my muchness and I need to find it again. EAT ME, DRINK ME Maintain Calories in the Green Zone tracking with MyFitnessPal and my FitBit I cannot outrun my fork. I cannot get healthy by over OR under eating. I need to eat the proper amount to fuel my body. I will also try to limit my fast food and junk food by eating at least 1 homecooked meal a day. Slimfast shakes for lunch at work will help me feel full and satisfy my sweet tooth. Eat a minim
  22. NEW CHALLENGE!!! Last month, I stretched, I cleaned out my closet, stretched daily, took care of my feet, drank more water and defeated a really hard art deadline. During February, I also started doing body weight exercises consistently, and the results from that and the challenge were great. It feels really good to celebrate non-scale victories. It became clear to me that in 2015, I focused too much on restrictions, and becoming smaller. But my world became small, and I found that I felt smaller on the inside while my waistline became bigger. So I put away the scale, and I put away the m
  23. I just started here, and am going on my first epic quest! I cribbed it from the Sample Level 1 Revel Challenge. I'll build on that: Main Goal: Live longer by being healthier. Motivation: a have a 3-year-old, and that girl can outrun me. Baby steps: Diet Eat a vegetable with one meal every day Substitute one sugary coffee drink per day for black coffee or tea. Fitness Participate an active social game, like frisbee or kickball, at least once a week (preferably with your family or friends who are also trying to get started!) Level Up Your Life Notorious for being
  24. Another simple challenge for me, because straight forward seems to be the name of the game for these 4 week challenges. I realized this weekend I tend to view things in a manner of "I need to do at least X" to feel accomplished. More is good. But I have a set level of things I like to do in order to feel accomplished. So I figured, why not make a challenge of At Least Accomplishing things? If nothing else, it lets me do a small word pun. 1) At Least... One new veggie a week I'm pretty boring with my veggies. Typically some broccoli or cauliflower or asparagus for the green/fiberous
  25. Last challenge, I moved from Tokyo to Edinburgh and I actually handled it pretty well overall, all things considered. This time, I'm going to shift a few of my goals around a bit because I noticed there are some things I'd like to do that I slacked on (like running) and some other things that I've been tracking that I've done pretty well and consistently without really trying so I think they're habits by now (like getting outside and walking for a bit every day). I'm also thinking I could use to get into a bit better shape and since things are in the process of settling down, I can work on tha
