  1. Main Quest To get stronger while building muscle and losing fat. Support Quests Follow Stronglifts 5x5 every week (three workouts weekly). Get eight hours of sleep every night. Eat quality calories following the Paleo lifestyle Life Quest Try approaching more problems by finding solutions and not excuses. Fitness Side Quest Incorporate yoga and meditation into my routine to promote mental wellness. Motivation This has always been my struggle to find, but this is my best shot. I want to be both physically and mentally health so that I can overcome ANY challenge that comes my way. Whether that is climbing a mountain, raising a family, etc. Will likely post pictures and take starting measurements tomorrow morning. I'm new to the community, and as such, every feature of the forum, guilds, etc is still new to me. Therefore, I'm going to try going lone wolf this time, and maybe look for accountability groups in a subsequent challenge. I feel that if you have the right amount of motivation, being accountable to yourself is all you need. The motivation is always the hardest part (for me, at least). Really excited to see what unfolds in the next six weeks!
  2. This will be my first official challenge at Nerd Fitness; I've been waiting for this since I signed up 6 weeks ago! I could have jumped straight into the previous challenge but at the time my motivation was running on fumes so I thought I'd ease into it before tackling anything scary like a real challenge. Gotta complete the tutorial before playing the game! The challenge doesn't start for another couple of days which will give me time to nut out the details, but I'm not too worried about stat points at this point because hell, I'm level 0. Just getting to level 1 will be a big deal! But I want to be able to give myself an actual mark because I think it will help me find out what I need to work on, and then I get to win points! (do the thing! win the points!) And I will know what to work on for next time. "But wait, what do you mean by 'attempt at total control?'" Well, I'm glad you asked. While I have been getting my health back in order these last few weeks, my brain has been functioning well enough to realise that I could be doing so much better in other parts of my life then I am and I've known about these issues for a while, but have lacked any sort of drive to do anything about it. I have no intention of throwing myself into the deep end, (this would end up in me flailing about and probably drowning in failure) but I need to start somewhere, and at least if I'm winning points for doing things then I might just! I also want to keep my general fitness improving, so my main quest is still diet-related, but I find it harder to keep my diet on track then delegate time for workouts. (I'm casually employed have time slots around everything I do where I can work out, but I hate cleaning my kitchen so cooking gets left behind when I run out of forks!) SO, without further ado, I give to you, nerds and nerdettes, my sparkly new challenge to start off this year the right way. Get as close to 15% body fat by attempting to eat totally Paleo. (6pts available) Starting Body Fat: 21% Having a number to work down to will be good motivation for me to stick with eating properly. My motivation for joining originally was a lack of happiness in the way I looked, but since I've been following the Rebel Fitness Guide I've reached a point I'm quite pleased with, so I had to think of something else to keep me going. There are still parts of my figure that will benefit greatly from this, and I want to see my abs. I will get a point for every percentage point dropped at the end of the challenge. So, my plan for doing this is; Eat Paleo 3 meals a day 7 days a week (126pts availble) Doesn't get much simpler then that! Cooking has never been a problem for me, I quite enjoy it, but meals need to be easy and quick and not involve a hundred different bowls to create. And paleo, in this instance. Also, I have struggled fitting in breakfast so I'm just going to have to start getting up earlier if it becomes a problem. I score a point every time I eat a paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner. Paleo snacks are worth no points, but I shall deduct a point every time I have a non-paleo snack! I'll try to keep a running tally during the challenge. Find and cook at least one new paleo recipe a week. (6pts available) Pretty self-explanatory; I'm used to cooking with a lot of pastry and cream and flour, and I need to be more creative. At least this way I can explore different things and find new things that myself and my Love will eat. He's coming around slowly but he still likes bread and pie and ice cream. I mean, so do I but my hips don't. One point every time I find and cook a new recipe, but only one point can be earned a week. I might even link and photo in my efforts if I'm feeling like sharing that day! LIFE QUEST: Invite more nature and art into my life. My last year was full of overworking, underachievement and a lot of "I'll do that one day" And I'm sick of hearing it from myself and everyone I know. Ultimately I would like to be doing a job that I love that always changes and I can use my natural flair for creativity and fun to do something awesome, as well as having an adventurous and fulfilling out-of-work life, but ever since finishing my diploma in media I have worked in the same cafe and played the same games and listened to the same music, and used the same excuses to not venture outdoors. Short term, I want to work less, create more, and enjoy the beautiful part of the world that I live in. Putting it on here makes it real and official, and I get to win more points!! A. One detailed artistic work a week, any medium (6pts available) Simple. I have a variety of hobbies, and never do any of them. I'll just pick one each week and go for it! I have to get at least 50% of the way through whatever I choose to do though, no planning things and not following through. B. Go somewhere I haven't been before (6pts available) Again, easy, but something I rarely do. I might even combine the two and go somewhere and work on something. MOTIVASHUNZ Lately I have ben feeling very stifled by real life; work and bad habits bind me into a destructive cycle of not eating properly or not moving around enough and they are the two problems I really need to fix, but I also need to be able to say "no more." I don't need to take every single shift that work throws at me, I could be doing fun things. And I don't get out enough. I also want to have things to talk about when I actually catch up with other humans instead of "yeah, we sat at home and watched tv..." I will keep a daily log of my eating and creative habits, and probably how much exercise I do too (I'm followng the rebel fitness guide and intend to jump from Rookie to Recruit at some point during this challenge.) because that's what I've been doing already. Total points available: 150. (hey! That worked out nicely!) A: 95% B: 80% C: 65% D: 50% F: 35% Phew! That was a lot of info at once, sorry! Anyway, this doesn't start until the 6th, so until then I'll continue updating my Battle Log until then.
  3. Hey fellow Rebels! Sorry I konked out on my last challenge, my back ended up taking a turn for the worse. So this challenge is going to focus on recovery! Mission: Regain the use of my back in order to maintain a healthy body weight. Objective 1: Complete the beginner-body-weight-workout twice a week. Objective 2: Resistance band stretching every day. Objective 3: Drink at least 24 oz of water before breakfast every day. And my life goal: I just started a new job at a leasing center for apartments, so I'm aiming for a 95% on my call coaching!
  4. I've always liked Star Trek's Klingons.Their warrior culture and strict honor code always make me feel at home. I myself am the product of a warrior culture: I am an Army Veteran, my father was federal Law Enforcement, and my grandfather and his brother served in WWII and Korea. And it seems to make more sense than trying to decide whether or not the Prime Directive applies to a given situation. So this challenge will be Klingon themed! While I'll never fully recover from the injuries I sustained in the military and may never again be the warrior I once was, I am not now the leader that I could be. A leader should be physically and mentally prepared to overcome any obstacle or hardship. My Quest Be mentally and physically prepared to lead my family into the ever-changing future My Goals Design and implement a sustainable plyometric workout Do 6 Rocky Push-Ups Design and implement a weekly meal planner (instead of just eating whatever I find first) Life Quest Organize the family finances My Motivation
  5. I created a spreadsheet to track 6 week challenges. The spreadsheet has two trackers: One is detailed (tracker 1) and the second is very basic and does not allow detailed tracking (tracker 2). The two spreadsheets are not tied to each other so you can use one and delete the other. I just created it and have not used it yet, but will be using it for the next challenge so I am sure I will make improvements as I use it. If you have any suggestions or issues let me know. I shared it on google docs and the link is below. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-U-711PQQGYRGZSUUM1S3E0UW8/edit?usp=sharing
  6. Hello! I am Sora. Some of you may remember me from the last challenge, when I officially joined the Scouts. You may also remember how that ended- not so good... I ended up having to drop out. I had a lot of unexpected things come up in my life that were simply more important to me. I had completed a six week challenge the time before, and these things took priority in my life. So that's okay, right? WRONG. I am not going to be satisfied with good enough. I am not going to make excuses. I am not going to quit. And if you are reading this, I ask that you will hold me to that. I run cross country, and am currently just settling into track season. I am not by any means a great runner. I am actually one of the worst. But I have slowly changed that since signing up for a cross country team, and it feels great. I have been running since September 2010, but more seriously since this past fall. Summer is coming fast, and I want to be ready for it. I have always been nervous to go swimming, because I was embarrassed of my body. Although my physique has improved lately, I'm not where I want to be yet. I still have time, so I am going to use it! My goals may seem familar to you: this is because they are the same as my last challenge. I am not quitting. I will achieve these goals. Maybe not yesterday, but today. And tomorrow. And forever more. This also means I am setting myself to the same $30 standards. For every week I dont achieve my goals, I lose $5. I will tell you right now that I do not plan on losing money. Goals: Fitness/diet goals- 1)Run or workout 5 days a week 2)Bring my own lunch at least one day a week. 3)Lose 10 lbs. Life Goal- 4)Do at least one session of Rosetta Stone a day How I will reach these goals: 1)Run or workout 5 days a week (STA + 2 DEX +3)- I will be running 5 days most weeks for the rest of track season. There are some day where there is not practice, though, so I will be completing some sort of workout that day, be it running or from the rebel strength guide. 2)Bring my own lunch at least one day a week(CON +3)- This goal is really to help with my weight loss, and get me eating healthier. I will likely do this on Fridays, because that usually has the worst options for lunch. 3)Lose 10 lbs. (CHA + 1 STA +2)- My first two goals should result in this, but I will be putting forth any other necessary effort to help reach this goal. Last challenge I successfully reached my goal of 7 lbs. by week four, lost some more, then gained some and balanced at just over 7 lbs. I know I was capable of more, so this goal is to keep me working the whole 6 weeks. 4)Do at least one session of Rosetta stone a day(CON +1 WIS +3)- I will be traveling to Japan in June, and I am totally stoked (ya, I just said that). I would like to improve my basic skills before heading over, so I can enjoy my trip more. Let me know if you have any suggestions, I will gladly listen! So, here goes. I wish everyone the best of luck!
  7. Hi everyone, I'm Jeremy. I'm 20 years old and live in Auckland. I'm new to this forum but am very keen for this six-week challenge. I've got a lot that I want to achieve this year and I feel like this will be a great way to get the ball rolling. Goals: 1. Gain 3kg (I'm currently 68 kilograms. This is up from 66 at the start of December) 2. Complete a set of forty press-ups and also two chin-ups (I can do press-ups, probably less than twenty. I can not do a chin-up) 3. Drink no more than 6 beers per week (I can use them all in one night) 4. Perform Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in G minor Op. 23 No. 5 entirely (and accurately) from memory Outline of steps required to achieve these goals: 1. Eat 6+ meals a day of healthy, whole foods. Aim for plenty of meat and veges but don’t shy away from complex carbs. Sugary things are gross. I love eggs. I love tuna. I love broccoli. Keep a food and exercise diary with me at all times. 2. Do three sets of press-ups and three sets of negative chin-ups (until I can do one full chin-up) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Follow these with three sets of burpees with 30 seconds rest between sets 3. This shouldn’t be too difficult, just don’t drink them. Only buy six-packs and don’t get in situations where I’ll be tempted to exceed the limit (eg. Towning) I will pick an event to drink at each week and drive to everything else. 4. For the first 15 minutes of daily practice, focus on this piece. Make sure that it is done every single day no matter how successful or how brief the rest of my practice is. Keep a daily log of sections that I've practiced and commit one line to memory with each practice. Other bits-and-pieces that will help or will be good to get done: Book a check-up at the dentist Book an eye exam and try using contact lenses Spend time with Eva and Stephen before they leave Do not drink juice or coffee. Stick to water, milk, and green-tea. Instead of icecream or chocolate for dessert, eat some fruit and/or have a proper meal before bed. Do not stay over at parties, instead drive and come home early to get a proper rest. Be in bed by 11pm and wake up before 8am Read every night before sleep (I would like to read at least one book each month this year) Plan meals the day before, or at the beginning of each week Respond to tuition enquiries and actively search for new students (I only have four hours per week. I want ten) Set a date to begin the new term of lessons and get in touch with students Shave every day Potential obstacles: My family is moving house in the first week of Feb. This could be quite disruptive. Rewards: Buy myself a cool shirt when I have gained three kilograms Buy myself the sheet music of Schumann's Symphonic Etudes when I successfully memorise the Rachmaninoff Prelude Perform the prelude for my grandad
