  1. Okay I have to say that I have accomplished a lot of things that I did not know I a the ability to do after "all to define is to limit" I was able to start exercising more I lost 30lb/15.6kg and finally truly embrace this journey that I am on. But I still want to keep this going as I start to fully accept the person that I am. With that being said I want try to kick it up just a little more to start the new year. Diet/ Fitness Quest: I want to work at least 10-15 minutes a day Eat a serving Vegetables at every meal Minimize soda consumption by start with no more tha
  2. Almost all of my attempts at doing this have been mostly failures, this is in fact due to my mental illnesses plaguing me night and day. Whether it's the small little voice in my head asking the dreaded What's the point? Or simply letting my anxiety convince me that it's not a good idea to do the thing. I know that I always say this is the time for real... and I mean it, I even trimmed up my beard drastically to prove a point. (Have no fear the bearded one is still here and will return in his full glory soonish). So: I'm thirty years old and reside in the good ol' South ( a place I rather
  3. I don't exercise; I overthink it. "If 80% of loosing weight is through diet, then what's the point in wasting time exercising?""If I do exercise today, even if I feel like I accomplished something it was pointless because it was just 1 day and not a recurring. If its not a recurring then it doesn't do anything. If it doesn't do anything, why do it?" My thoughts around food are slightly better but my effort doesn't seem to take any weight off unless it is strict and rigid. I gave up gluten last year but only really saw weight loss when I didn't eat any grains for 3 weeks. I like healthy foods,
  4. Ok, so despite falling off the face of the earth towards the end of last challenge, I'm still here. Last exercise I really liked starting every day with 10 squats and 10 pushups. I felt better for it. This time I would like to keep this trend up. I've been noticing some pain in my knees and ankles recently, so I am going to have to adjust the exercise and figure out what's going on. 1) 10 squats/10 pushups minimum first thing in the morning Since I'm not able to go to kaju classes at the moment, I want to practice what I did learn. I really enjoyed learning something new and the movement
  5. Ok, so the last challenge ended up just kind of imploding halfway through. Stopped tracking things and just didn't follow up on things. So this time around I'm going to tone things down a little bit and try to lay a solid foundation for the new year. 1) Skill Building 1.a - Attend Kaju class at least once a week Unfortunately it looks like at the end of the month I'm going to have to pause kajukenbo classes, but until then, I can still try to make as many classes and learn as much as I can before then. I figure the more I can learn in person, the more I can have to practice on my own. We're
  6. For this challenge, I will be working on conquering the aspects of Wands, the second tarot suit I am exploring. Wands are, depending on the deck, connected to Fire, and so to things like action, passion, love or lust, light and knowledge (through mythologies like that of Prometheus and other fire bringers), etc. Wands are often conflict cards in a reading, as well, and so there is that aspect, of opposition and difficulty. As far as action is concerned, one can have all the potential in the world, but it takes the actual activity or energy of taking the first step to unleash and realize that p
  7. At the encouragement of RDNottingham, I have decided to go with a theme for this (and at least three other) challenges. I am going to use the Tarot suits as guides for my challenges. This challenge is the suit of Pentacles or Coins. Pentacles are symbolically tied to the element of Earth, whose aspects are strength, steadfastness, firmness, and determination (to name a few). I think this is pretty much in line with the characteristics I want to demonstrate this challenge. Pentacles are also connected to money (hence the second name for the suit, Coins, and a major part of this challenge for me
  8. So, here is my thread for work between challenges. I'll keep track of any exercises and other work I do between challenges, and ruminate on ideas for the next challenge. So far, I know I'm going to include financial health in the next challenge. Some of the things I'm already doing - limiting how often I buy coffee, taking breakfast bars with me when I'm on the run, etc. But the big thing I'm going to do is try to figure out which bills fall into which pay period, and figure out from there how much free money I have each pay period. And, to keep track of that, I'll use either play money or a
  9. Ok, so here is my thread for the minis. I have a hard time doing these because I have a plan, and I like my plan, and then these things come and surprise me every week, lol. That's what it is to be a Taurus sometimes, I guess.
  10. Ok, so, even though we're between challenges, I want to keep up what I did for my first challenge, and I want to start working toward the changes I want to make for the next one. So, in keeping with my first challenge - walk 3/week, belly dance 2/week, meditate 5/week. New changes (to be updated as they develop): healthier eating - track intake 3/week, and other things to be specified; TV watching limited to 2 hrs/weekday (weekends are freebies)... 4/6 - Did my walk. Also made "healthy" eating choices - had to go for fast food for two meals, but skipped the fries both times.
  11. Hello! Kechii here! Yes, I'm a newbie. 'Tis my first time here in the rebellion but I've been lurking the nerdfitness site for almost a week now. Been reading posts to prepare myself to this. So, reason for being here. Simply put, I wanna be fit and healthy; have a sexy body (that would look good naked, even) and be able to wear clothes comfortably without having to worry about stubborn excess flabs here and there (be able to fit into these clothes that my father gave that are 'accidentally' one size smaller). [And probably look great in time for my graduation] A little something about m
  12. Here is where I will be posting my adventures for the minis!
  13. Overall Goal My first challenge was focused on getting my pants to fit. Now that many pairs of them do, I want to make sure I banish those gnomes that sneak into my closet during the quiet, still night and use their tailoring skills to make unexpected alterations. I want to do this while increasing my ability to fly through the air under my own propulsion. Subgoals 1. Continue to improve my diet by increasing to 75% of my meals following paleo principles: I was very skeptical of the paleo diet when I started my first challenge 7 weeks ago. I am not a complete convert right now, but o
  14. Aaaand I'm back. Well, I was always around, lurking/creepin' on the forums and dutifully reading my biweekly NF emails, so let's say I'm back and actively participating. So, let's get down to business, shall we? Main Quest: To lose 10 pounds and/or 5% bodyfat. Bikini season is soon upon us, ya'll. SUMMER IS COMING! Current stats: 142 lbs, 28% body fat, 5'5", single white female (j/k j/k). How to do it? 1) Ketosis. Can I get an "Amen"? I'm pretty much in love with the ketogenic diet. After going full paleo since the beginning of the year, I started playing with ketosis for a month now and
  15. Main Quest: Lose Weight Sub Quests: Drink 2L of water everyday. Do Bodyweight workout 3 times per week. No snacking after 8pm. Motivation:I am a husband.I am a father of 3 (aged: 4, 2 and new).I plan to be around for a long time - and enjoying every minute of it - with them. I will post later with some starting stats (weight, measurements, etc).
  16. Main Quest: To build up a solid foundation of habits to propel me towards my ultimate goal of being a master of my own body weight. Grades: All goals will be converted to a percentage completed successfully and given a grade letter as shown A = 90 – 100% complete = 100% of the rewards B = 80 – 90% complete = 75% of the rewards C = 70 – 80% complete = 50% of the rewards D = 60 – 70% complete = 25% of the rewards F = less than 60% complete = no rewards First Mission: Lose the Extra Poundage. Continuing from my last partial challenge, I’ll be carving off the extra pounds. My Targe
  17. I'm joining late, but hope to use this to make diet and exercise a priority again in my life. I started a challenge a couple months ago, but life got crazy quickly and I needed to bow out. I'm starting again a bit simpler. I will set some simple easy goals for this partial challenge to set myself up for the next challenge. Main Quest: Lose 23 Pounds. My reasons are two fold. First, I entered a weight loss incentive 2-3 months ago through my Insurance Provider that will pay me $500 when I reach 190 pounds (I'm currently at about 213 pounds). Second, and most importantly, I have lost the
  18. I've decided to just pop up this little battle log and log in the foods I eat along with my workouts and how I feel that day. Might as well start making myself accountable, and a little discipline. I'm seeing some results, but I know that my diet has been bleh and not following the workout plans advice. Goals: Weight loss. Losing 1-2 pounds a week or more. Attempting a 20 pound loss before June 15, my sisters wedding. Strength: doubling my starting strength from the beginning of my routine: 75% complete Education: Not only expanding my mind on eating-right, but also in my studies in be
  19. Hello everyone! I just discovered Nerd Fitness yesterday from the r/loseit subreddit and I am really excited and glad that I did! I am a 23 year old female, my starting weight was around 219 and I'm currently 214 and a half-ish. I don't have an actual scale in the house, just using the wii fit for monthly weigh-in's. I've always been a bit on the heavy side, but since getting married almost three years ago I have gained more. I decided that I needed to make a change for the better. Before I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and most of the time I wasn't really hungry or I wou
  20. The gnome walks under it. ba dum ching! Hi, I'm me, and I'm on an apparently endless weight loss journey. I've been pretty significantly over-weight for most of my life, though looking back on pictures of me at 18 now I can't help but think "I want to be fat like THAT again!" I capped out at 347 pounds in 2010 and maintained that weight until early 2012, when I first started making changes. For reference, I am female, 5'9" and 29 years old. I've had a life-long problem with binge eating and emotional binges, secret eating, and obsession with food and dieting. Obviously, no fad diet I tried
  21. Well, I did pretty well the last six weeks in staying with my goals. Despite that, I didn't actually lose any weight and I don't feel as if my body fat has gone down (although I've built a decent amount of muscle). I want my next goals to be focused on weight loss. According to the BMI tool listed in a previous NF post, if I'm mostly sedentary throughout the day I cannot consume more than 1500 calories. I'm thinking of adding in a calorie count limit each day, but part of my brain really HATES the thought of needing to record everything I eat. Especially when its difficult to get an ac
