  1. The evening breeze curled playfully around the hillside where Eamon and I had spread out our picnic several hours before, surrounding us with the spicy damp scent of trees exhaling their warmth from the day and the soft hum of insects serenading each other in the dusk light. Night was falling, and the village vista far below had quieted, with lamps lit in windows and a softening of the sounds of bustling carts and brisk voices. Our conversation, too, had softened into a comfortable silence; and I curled into the space underneath Eamon's strong arm, resting my head on his shoulder and letting h
  2. Hi everyone! I've been hanging out with the Rebels for the last year or so, but I thought a change of scenery would do me good The line = 73.5kg. This is what I weighed when I picked out my wedding dress a week ago, so now the prime directive is to hold this line and not exceed the limit. It won't arrive until May, and the wedding is not until September, but if I can maintain good habits until then (and forever after that) there will be a lot less anxiety around alterations etc to deal with. Exercise 1) Do any exercise every day 2) Do a major exercise 3x a
  3. I skipped the last challenge, but things have still been happening over here in my little corner -- wedding planning, family trip to Spain (holy drama llamas guys), work getting really busy, and the normal episodes of the sads. When we saw this movie fiance was like THAT'S YOU. Unfortunately true. So the year is shaping up like this: February bachelorette in San Diego May 6 Flying Pig Half Marathon June 3 Spartan Sprint Ohio July 1 WEDDING!!!!! September Honeymoon in Portugal I'm such a lucky duck. Goal 1 - Dial in
  4. So what is this about you might ask? Well, I'll tell you! Just take a seat, this could take a while.... It all started back about 10 years ago. I was in high school and just getting to figuring out who the hell I was. I met this really cute guy and got infatuated. I even invited him to go to prom with me but he declined, said he wasn't interested in going. I was sad but not heartbroken and found another dude to go with. And oh boy...was that ever a disaster! Fast forward a few years and I meat this boy again but now via my boyfriend. He is funny and sweet and nerdy, jus
  5. Okay so last challenge was interesting. Moving, getting ready for the wedding, work going crazy and school. I've started using a bullet journal and it's helped a lot but missed being on here. Kind of messed up my shoulder moving, so Kung Fu has been a little hard. Plan is to go to just 1 of the hours tonight, although I really wish I could do two. Joined a farm share program (CSA) and now get a box of veggies every week. only had 1, a few things were a bit of a challenge but overall most everything turned out well. I do hope to be on here more. I know when I"m following a long wit
  6. Another month, another couple of miles of this year's life marathon! I've gotten through the Zombies, Run! virtual race and the bulk of wedding dress shopping, tackled the challenge of consistent food logging, and I'm now rounding the corner into some pretty big wedding planning tasks, a steady increase in work responsibilities, and I can just make out moving day looming on the horizon! GOALS For this challenge, I'll have a couple of consistent foundational goals to set me up to do well: Sleep for a minimum of 7.5 hours per night (I'll count it if I'm down for
  7. The Introduction Hello, dearies! If you can't tell from the above gif, I have been watching a lot of Once Upon a Time lately. At first I thought of it as a guilty pleasure, but then I started to realize that this show is actually quite good. Modern takes on fairy tales, not only having kick-ass strong female characters but the entire cast essentially being strong female characters, having Disney characters being gay, amazingly creative costuming and makeup, and overall incredibly imaginative plots that totally switch everything up that you thought you knew
  8. Hello everyone! Since this is my first Challenge, I'll get right to posting my goals. You can read more about me on my character page. Main Quest: Lowering my body fat percentage My goal in the past was to lose weight. Since I am getting closer to my 'perfect' weight, I'd rather focus on body composition. Fitness Quests: Increase difficulty level of workouts twice a week I exercise every morning, and I feel like my body is getting used to it. Since I can't really increase the frequency of my workouts (without quitting my job), I will increase their intensity. Do not skip mor
  9. Hello there, I'm Croaker. Lady and I are finally getting married next year. We set a date of October 1st. The problem here is I am carrying around too much weight especially around the middle. When Lady and I met and we fell in love I had a physical job working out side. Fast forward 5 years and I now work in a laboratory (go Croaker for leveling up in life.) The downside is I work in a Laboratory and get no physical exercise. So I have been ballooning from a nice 170 -180 to 230-240. I started fixing my diet back in January and have been doing pretty good at it. I dropped down to 2
  10. Hi y'all, My story starts off with a cliche. About a week and a half ago, my partner of almost eight years proposed and I accepted. For the first time in a long time, I felt so happy and excited and hopeful. Like there were things to look forward to again. I looked around my house and realized, I need to get my shit together. Suddenly, I wanted to be better, for the sake of myself, for him, and for our impending marriage. Let me back up a little. I've been seriously depressed since at least 2012, if not before. Around that time I was living with my parents, struggling to finish my degree
  11. It's been a while...lots has happened, but all is better now. In October I'm getting married. I'm super excited, and can't wait to walk down that aisle, and soon I will be having my first wedding dress fitting. I bought my wedding dress at the end of October, since then I have moved into my own home with my future husband, and it's been both Christmas and my birthday, so as you can imagine, some weight has been added. I would like if possible, to lose some weight, and generally firm up all over the place. And while I'm at it I'm going to improve my skating skills and my refereeing skil
  12. Hello! so here is the thing. Last year I started the paleo lifestyle like 90%. I started exactly a year ago in April, and then I started obsessing with the exercise too, so I was doing too much. I was in the better shape of what I have been my entire life. Then I injured myself. I had a spinal surgery in June because of an hernia that happened because I was not resting enough between exercise sessions, and my spine got injured. Everything went well, I healed super fast, I dont know if it was because my nutrition was very well but I healed and recovered very well. Even when I was in the hosp
  13. In 6 weeks time I will be Bridesmaid Dress Shopping for my sisters wedding in August, perfect timing for my first six week challenge. Operation, not be the fat sister at the big wedding! Main Goals: 1) Aim for a 90-10 Paleo Diet, I am almost there at the moment but I think I can step it up a notch. 2) Be able to run 5K, I can currently run a slow mile. Speed it not important to me, just distance. 3) Lose weight, I have reached a plateau with my weight and I would like to smash it. Life Quest: Read the books that have been stacked next to my bed for 4 weeks (

  15. ***Note: This is a busy week at work and as such I will finish this entry as soon as I can*** Helloooooooooooooo! Hello If you haven't seen me for a while, there are some reasons. But now I'm back and getting ready for a wedding in less than eight months! Main Quest Basically my main goal is going for the reduction of fat in my bodyweight composition. Plain and simple. I really don't have an end percentage in mind, just going for the "look good naked" thing, especially with my wedding happening in October I really want to look sexy for the lady-friend. I'll be s
  16. Hello fellow​ NF rebels! I'm Sam, a long-time lurker but first-time poster on the forums. I live in North Yorkshire in the UK, and led a life that was completely devoid of any sort of healthy stuff until last March, at which point I realised that I didn't want to be the sort of person who's unfit and hates the way they look for their whole life. Anyway, I'm 24, female, live with my lovely partner and run my own French tuition business. I love every aspect of my life except my looks and generally poor physical condition, but am really proud with how far I've come. I have mild asthma whic
  17. The last few challenges have left me feeling a bit like: And I just keep feeling like I’m I'm not actually getting anywhere because I keep losing my way and then I have to start over. I’ve had a lot of life changes lately. The biggest one is new job with new hours. For the first time in my working life I am a M-F 8-5 type person. I don’t even know what to do! Ennica and I have finally set a wedding date and this time we’re going through with it, deaths or no deaths. We have also planned a post wedding, long weekend honeymoon trip to New York to see all the Broadway shows.

  19. Hello Everyone, I am getting married in october and want to lose 20-30lbs before then. only issue is that i'm lazy and usually pretty tired when I get home from work ( i'm a Web/Mobile Developer ). My fiance is skinny and in shape but I am not. I currently weigh 230 lbs and would really liek to get to 200lbs before oct 18. My major issue with food is that I like to cook big meals and don't know how to simplify. When it comes to working out..... Im just too lazy. I am also on a strict budget because i am paying for my wedding so i only spend about $300 in groceries a month for
  20. Greetings, NF! I've been a lurker for the past month or so, and your stories, along with those at r/fitness and r/loseit, have inspired me to join and introduce myself. First off, here's my obligatory progress album: http://imgur.com/a/MNLWI#0 I have been lifting off and on for the past 3 years, ever since I started and completed P90X in 2011. I was very fit, active and strong in college. However, a little over a year ago I graduated and moved to a new city away from my friends and support group and worked a shitty job, which unfortunately led to a period of depression and drinking too m
  21. I'll get started tomorrow. Just deciding some goals. Since the end of the last challenge I've got a new job for next school year as head of department, and my girlfriend and I got engaged, and I can get into all but one pair of trousers despite weighing exactly the same as I did about 45 days ago. I'm more interested in seeing everyone else's challenges than my own this time, they're more entertaining somehow! I like the ideas.

  24. Time for Round Three. I'm in it to win it. Goal #1- Survive my wedding. I'm marrying a wonderful girl in 25 days. I can't wait. The stress may kill me before then. Or my family may cause my head to explode. Just need to grind for 25 days then it will all be worth it (3 CHA, 2 WIS) Goal #2- Deadlift 535 for 1 rep. (5 STR) Goal #3- Find a job. My fiancee got a wonderful job opportunity and I left my teaching/coaching career and moved to a new state so she could take it. I wasn't able to find a new teaching position where I am so now I just need income. Anything will do at this point. (3 WI
  25. Woooooo first challenge!! I'm really excited to get in on this challenge thing for several reasons: 1) Accountability - Everyone's friend when faced with junk food or skipping workouts. 2) Motivation - Woots and Huzzahs are to be freely given and received and that contributes to Reason 1. 3) Community - I haven't been entrenched in an online community in several years, and I miss it! The shared goals and trials are the best of things that bind us together! Soooo…. I got engaged yesterday!! Hooray!! See? That white dress is, from what everyone tells me, one of the strongest
