  1. Well this is it. Since joining this awesome community back in January I have finally reached my final challenge of the year, and my final challenge before going on a medical hiatus. Since I will need to be taking a break next month I am going to give it my all to complete the remainder of my year-end goals in the next 4-weeks. So without further ado... Quest Challenges Wim Hof Meditation(10 Minutes a day for 30 days) Attend a Yoga Class Attend an Akido Class No drinkable calories Quest Master* Quests Non-Quest Challenges Keep up weekly habits(Spread sheet for tracking) Finish up Coursera Photography Course Finish Fall Semester Post School(Dec 9th) Study for Google's Android Certification Exam(5 hours a week) Work on FreeCodeCamp's Back-End Certification(5 hours a week) Work on launching blog (5 hours a week) Contribute to Habitica's Open Source Project(5 Hours a week) Learn the JS React Framework(5 hours a week) _______ There is going to be a heck of a lot more on my plate for this challenge, but that just means that much more of a challenge! Once school is finished up I am going to utilize that free time to work on project building and prepping up my programming skills. *Quest Master - This is a special item on my list. Once the semester ends I am no longer going to be able to access the University's gym. Since I'll be breaking from weight lifting for a while I am going to start targeting as many Warrior Quests from Nerd Fitness Academy's list, as many Quests from Fitocracy, and as many Achievements from Fitocracy as I can in one day to knock as many of them off as possible.
  2. *peeks in* oh dear... Ive really let this go to poop I'm a first year medical resident in my mid-twenties in WA, studying and seeing patients. I am also a big fan of Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, Game of Thrones/ASoIaF, Animorphs, Outlander, Star Trek (TNG), and various other scifi/fantasy themes. Ping me if you play ESO! I would love to adventure with you. I'm also now into DnD5e and currently play and DM. I've fallen off the bandwagon here at NF a few times, but always worth it to try again and try to be a physician who is doing their best to practice what I preach, in a way! [[[ May 28 - June 24th Challenge ]]] LEVEL 1 - Basic Instincts Diet (pick two) Drink 1 bottle/glass of water in the AM and PM Eat one full, prepared and cooked meal with protein and vegetables per day Fitness (pick one) Complete the NF bodyweight workout at least 3x a week Go to a yoga class Level Up Your Life 5 minutes meditation daily Go on a walk OUTSIDE 3x a week ================================================= My OG Character who I think I ought to retire given how much I'm back to Level 1: Level: 4 | Race: Khajiit | Ranger STR: 6 | DEX: 5 | STA: 5 | CON: 6 | WIS: 14 | CHA: 4 Challenge 1: Step one to Escaping Dragons Challenge 2 v2.0: Getting back in the saddle Challenge 3: Getting to the Core of the Matter Challenge 4: Climbing the Ranks Challenge 5: IN PROGRESS (current) =================================================
  3. Oh shit, the new challenge starts today! *Britt scrambles to get goals together* So, the last challenge started strong...and ended like a sad pile of mashed potatoes. Time to rededicate and get things going in the right direction! Quest One: I will eat at NF Level 7 at least 18 out of 21 meals a week. So yeah. The calorie counting thing was a pain in the butt, even when I stuck to the same basic foods every day, and sticking to the same foods every day made Britt a bored, bored, girl. We're gonna try something different. And hard, but (I think) doable. I'm picking level seven as a goal because in most ways it doesn't represent a stretch: I already eat a lot of veggies and protein, and bread is an unusual occurrence. Where this challenge WILL be a challenge is on the sugar. It crept back in last challenge in a big way, and it needs to get its happy little ass back out of my life. The way this challenge is structured gives me three meals a week to choose to be less than level 7. One of those shall be my Wednesday night knitting group, which will also be my one night of the week when I will drink alcohol. The rest of the time we're gonna be good! Quest Two: I will bring lunch and healthy snacks to lab at least 4 out of 5 days a week. I do a great job on breakfast, a decent job on lunch, and oftentimes a shitty job on dinner. Part of the dinner fail is not eating enough for lunch and returning home ready to gnaw my own arm off. This challenge I plan to bring my lunch to work EVERY day, and to bring a healthy, filling snack (yogurt, most likely), to eat in the afternoon to stave off the hangry. This should help me power through the evening in a good place. Quest Three: I will go to the gym at least 5 days a week. I want to get to the point where going to the gym just becomes automatic. I don't think about it, I don't juggle every day to find time, I just GO. The actual content is less important than the going, at least for this challenge. Life Quest: I will permanently remove at least 14 possessions a week from my apartment. I am a PhD student looking for finish up in December. I've lived in the same apartment for almost five years, and I've accumulated a ton of crap I don't need, or use, or even want anymore. Time to downsize, which in turn will make me calmer and happier and less stressed. The 14 items could be anything that doesn't usually get removed (i.e. I can't count taking out the recycling), but single objects count (i.e. one old textbook, not ALL the old textbooks). Quest #1: Lucky Level Seven! A: >=72 times - [+4 CON] B: >=66times - [+3 CON] C: >=60 times - [+2 CON] D: >=48 times - [+1 CON] F: < 48 times - [+0 CON] Quest #2: Be prepared!

  4. Ok, so I feel like I totally peetered out on that last challenge. I'm placing a bookmark here because I'm still trying to decide what all my challenges are going to be - here's what I'm thinking DOING!: Main Quest: Unassisted pull-up or chin-up. Sub-Quest 1: Keep up with stronglifts program (lifting 3x's/week). (3 Strength) Sub-Quest 2: This is where I'm not sure what to do. This one is going to focus on off-days. I don't know if I want to work on my Atlantean roots with the Aquaman workout or strengthen my connection with the Force with the Star Wars workout. Working on my Atlantean roots with the Aquaman workouts! (3 Charisma, because Aquaman is nothing if not charismatic. ). Sub-Quest 3: I know this should go without saying about the importance of warm-ups & cool-downs, but I'm pretty lax about doing a full & proper warm-up and cool-down, so I want to focus on that during my lifting days. (Goal is 100%). (1 pt. each for Dexterity, Stamina & constitution). Diet Quest: Support my buddy doing a Whole30. While I myself am not committing to a strict Whole30 (it's a long story, pm me if you really want to hear it), I am going to focus on eating lots of veggies and protein. Protein - I want keep it at 90g/day or more. Veggies - must have at lunch & dinner. I'll track my protein on the Lose It! app (pm me if you want to add me) or I might try tracking it with my Fitbit (again, pm me if you want to add me). Life Quest: Complete 2 Presidential biographies. (Currently on Garfield (yes, I'm working his nickname), then Chester A. Arthur). (1/2 Wisdom pt for each completed during challenge). I would appreciate any early thoughts on choosing between Aquaman and Star Wars.
