  1. I thought I would put this topic out there (it likely already exists, but no matter) since I tend to hit this level and struggle to beat it every time. The longer it takes you to recognise you're fighting this epic boss, the more damage it does, and the harder it is to respawn. I know this because I have respawned so.many.times. There is victory in coming back and pressing "start" again, however. And sometimes it doesn't hurt to look up a walkthrough (like the NF forums and articles) to help you out when fighting this evil. So I'm curious to hear from other rebels about how they deal with
  2. Hi, guys! It's been a while since I've posted on here. When I started here - I think it was May last year - I was jobless, friendless, and 5' 7'' weighing in at about 215 lbs. It's February now, 7 months since joining. Now I have a job that, though doesn't pay as much as I'd like, pays fairly and I love it. I have friends. And this morning I weighed 191.8 lbs. Perseverance, portion control, confidence. They go a long way. And if you are like me, and you struggle to find reasons to be self confident, just remind yourself that you are your nemesis and you need to show other you who wears the
  3. Ok so it is way past my bedtime (off to a great start, aren't I??) so I will throw down these goals really quickly and elaborate later as needed. Since last month's challenge was a mediocre success, I am tweaking the formula but going with the same basic goals. I will repeat what needed more work, and I will amp up the goals that I was successful in achieving. Based on my learnings from last challenge, here goes: Diet Reduce coffee-with-cream drink at office to one per day, after that, consume only black coffee or herbal tea drinks (round 2 - need to make this a habit!)Meet my MFP calorie
  4. Last year I conquered the Empire and shed most of the excess body mass I wanted to get rid of. I didn’t meet my overall target for losing scale weight, but that’s mainly due to the added muscle mass I built while burning fat and improving my fitness. I also came up short on my goal of doing 10 pullups by year’s end, but I went from not being able to do a single one (for months!) to being able to pull 8 in a single set. That’s progress no matter how you slice it. I found tremendous success in sticking with my first year of NF challenges--all 6 of which were focused on eating, exercisi
  5. So I am back and doing my best to respawn since getting royally pwned by life a year and a bit ago. To account for the absence I took myself down to level 1 (and adjusted my stat points accordingly). I'm restarting in the rebels since I don't feel that I can commit to any of the specific guilds just yet. I will continue to eye up the Warrior guild however, as I felt most happy lifting heavy things and for the first time in ever I saw progress I was loving and I didn't care about the scale at all. Maybe one day I will be able to make it back to that level of commitment, but baby steps, for n
  6. Oh hello. Cheechoe here. I'll let you nerds in on a little secret. I kiiiiind of have this thing where I forget to be awesome. I just wake up on a normal day, and go about it in a reckless manner only to find the moon has been pushed up all before I had my chance to hang it. That bastard. So this is my challenge where I remind myself everyday to be awesome. 1. Do the Awesome Things. Get back in shape by... TKD 3x/weekGym 1x/ week1 longish run 1x/ week ( 4-6miles)+2 DEX, +1 STR, +2 STA 2. Feed the Awesome. Loose weight/lean up by... Batch cook 1x/
  7. Hello, I'm Bluethunder.... I joined NF last month in between challenges and started a Battle Log, but was encouraged to join a challenge....so here I am. I'm using the template for level 1 Rebel Challenge sorta.... I have one major diet challenge and that is cinnamon toast which I have a bad habit of eating til I explode. So I need to stay away from that at all cost. My next goal is fitness and diet?... I'd like to lose 4 pounds by the end of this... Last goal is fitness related.... I just recently upped my treadmill speed to 7.5 which is slightly out of my comfort zone. So I'd lik
  8. All excuses aside, I'm going down this month. My main quest is weight loss, and I've been to wimpy to reflect that in my goals lately. I've had some lovely side quests. I found some delicious foods to cook and I've squatted an intimidating bar. But my weight loss goal has plateau'd because I've been avoiding it, plain and simple. Holidays are over, and I am striking back with a vengeance. Goal 1. Healthy Eating I am shooting for six out of seven days of healthy eating. This works with my own personal checklist that includes eating lots of vegetables and reasonable portion sizes. I wi
  9. Epic quest for adventure 2016 Year of the Viking 2016 will be the year of the viking, this year i want to work towards some strongman runs called the strongviking. SO 2016 will be the year of the viking So i sorta stole this from my fellow doodlies. The idea is to set out a roadmap for the year 2016 and cross things off when i finish them. Boddy goals -Weigh 85 Kilo's -Be able to ro run 15K -Be able to start parkour training -Pick up Karate training -Correct the posture Food goals -Get a grip on my sugar consumption. -Get a grip on my impulse buys regarding food. -Learn 2 new recipes e
  10. So it looks like I'm finally starting to break through my weight loss plateau. I had a weigh-in today with my trainer (we do body fat % and weight once a month) and I am down 4lbs from my last weigh in! Finally. I've been stuck around the same number since May! Let's hope the scale keeps moving.
  11. I finally got it up! It was a crazy week. This is my 4th challenge!!! I've lost almost 25lbs since I joined the rebellion in June. If you'd like to know more about me, check out my battle log. This time I'm trying to get a little more into the quest. Tackling each goal as a youma. When it comes to writing I don't feel so creative but I gave it my best shot! With a new pendant in hand. Doe emerges from the battle. Burgundy ribbons falling over her shoulders. Her old fighting wears: oversized jogging pants, old grey work shirt, and pink canvas sneakers have been replaced with sparkly grey le
  12. Inspired by the recent Nerd Fitness article "Want Results? Be like Groot. I am Groot." The past couple of months with Nerd Fitness has been life changing. In just a few weeks I have accomplish more than I have in years of trying to lose weight and be strong. I do not want to become stagnant, but what I have been doing has worked. So I am going to keep on keeping on and continue with some of my quests from previous challenges. I AM STRONG Q1: Do Bodyweight Work Out 3 times per week. Measurement: A) 6 weeks; 5-4 weeks; C) 3 weeks Reward: A) 3 STR & 2 STA; 2 STR & 1 STA C) 1 STR I
  13. Hello fellow adventurers! This will (hopefully) be my first successful challenge here on NF. I terribly messed up during the last challenge, despite all the support I got from the incredible people here, but like I said in the title, I believe in second chances and can't wait to embark on a new adventure with you guys. Why did I fail last time? Because I underestimated my mental issues. I have suffered, and am still suffering from depression, insomnia, social anxiety, a low self-esteem (and the list probably goes on), and I pretended like those problems didn't exist. I was worried my goals
  14. Introduction: Day 0 There's nothing out here but a wasteland of misery and destruction- and a shit-tonne of dust. I am weak, and ill-prepared. If I am to survive, I will need to find shelter- recover my health, and build my strength. I shield my bleary eyes and look up to where the sun lays, giant and aggressive at the crest of a cliff, it's unending shower of painful rays strangling out the last shreds of moisture from the choking landscape. I gaze so long I begin to see dots- dark smudges against the backdrop of fierce, fiery orange. Strangely still for a trick of the eyes. that is when
  15. Long time no see, my friends.... This is about how I feel right now. So, my last challenge failed in a big way. I basically just stopped doing it. Then I decided to just not do much of anything to better myself. I took a landslide in the opposite direction I want to go, and it's been really, really bad. Also, entered into a relationship, which has had the "fat and happy" effect on me. BUT THEN.... I took a look at myself in the mirror last night. I feel gross, I think I look gross, and I generally don't want to be in the shape I am now. I was doing really good, and I know I can agai
  16. Hello! I wanted to introduce myself here in preparation for the next six week challenge! I've been reading the Nerd Fitness articles for around a year, and they have had a huge impact on my life (for the better)! Since finding NF, I have lost nearly 2 stone, and hugely overhauled my diet. I am now right at the upper limit of a healthy weight (according to my BMI), and in the best shape I have ever been in in my life. I took up running a year ago after a lifetime of hating exercise, and found that I was actually capable of doing things with my body, which was a great revelation. I ran a ha
  17. Hey all, I need a little help. A friend suggested that I Cosplay Kratos from god of war at PAX east this year. I really like the idea and I think It would really give me a great goal to work towards.. the only problem is... well, have you SEEN kratos?! At 6'1" and about 200 lbs, I have a good base but I really need to cut down while adding a TON of mass to my chest.. I have around 6 months to do this. Ive been cutting weight for a few months and my waistline is down to around 30 inches. Problem is I carry all my fat on my stomach so I really have awful abs. I guess what I am asking is, do you
  18. CRAZY TIMES! I just got back from 9 days of camping, I only just barely had enough time to unpack all the camping supplies last night (didn't sleep well). Also, just before camping I was moving into a new house, I had only slept there 3 nights and so it still doesn't feel like home, so a big part of this challenge is going to be re-establishing my healthy routines. Since it doesn't feel like home yet, cooking and exercising have felt wierd and off thus far. Also, it feels like I am living in someone else's house and I have yet to take any ownership. I feel like this whole challenge is going
  19. Well after my relatively successful last challenge I am back and moving forwards again. After a brief discussion with my Bec I have decided to focus on these next three tasks from my list of things I need to be doing to get back on track. So here they are. Goal One: Morning and Nighttime Routines From the Art of Manliness website I have read about the importance of having a routine in the morning when I first get up and one at night before going to bed. So I have written up simple instructions for my morning and bedtime routines. The plan is to stick to them everyday. I think Constitution an
  20. Hi Everyone. (feel free to scroll to the bottom for the real goals) Time for a proper introduction. I've previously posted in the Assassin's forum but this challenge isn't very assassin-y and I probably need a but of a focus reset. My real name is Diana - I'm coming up on the big quarter century in January next year and to be honest I'm having a bit of a freak out. I've kinda been floating along through life mildly successfully but not overly. Early last year I changed jobs and immediately went backwards in kinda everything - my health started to get worse; i started yoyoing with my weight
  21. ok ok, here I am up for a new challenge, my first one as a ranger, so hello Rangers. I'm coming from the assasins because during this challenge I want to continue with my weight loss goal as well as improve my stamina (that's new for me) so I've been told this is a god place for that. Right now I'm playing in a basketball tournament at work and i want to get back to my best basketball shape ever which was 10 years ago. I want to dunk the ball again. the last week of the challenge is going to be very tricky, it is my honeymoon, but I will try to include my honeymoon into the challenge, we
  22. Long time lurker, sporadic participant and dedicated student. I have tried doing the challenges, but the timing never works out for me, so I am going to give this daily log thing a crack. My goal: Do a pull up. Then do some more. And get stronger and lose a little weight (goal is to lower bf%). Stats: Female 150 lbs 5' 3" 21 yr Chest - 38" Waist - 31" Hips - 40" former athlete Approach: 1. Bodyweight training 2. Karate 3. Active Rest Days 4. No binge eating! My diet is pretty clean, so I need to focus on energy in/out. It's the student stress life that really gets to me and makes me
  23. Intro: I'm Tracy, soon to be a 44 year old wife and mom from the metro area of Atlanta, GA. I have 4 kids and will be a grandma in Dec. Younger me was naturally slim, but not fit, and I never formed the habit of regular exercise. Older me became a foster mom and gained 100 lbs (and some health issues) during those 8 years of foster care due to lack of exercise, high stress, anxiety and emotional eating. We adopted two with special needs (they are 9 & 11), and I am learning how to handle issues (life) in some way other than with food. I'm setting weight loss goals in 10% increments. Main
  24. Hi everyone! I have always been curvaceous and at the peak of my health when I was a sprinter in high school I took my flat tummy and big butt for granted. In fact I did not like my body I longed for the "runway model" look. Now that I'm older I have embraced my shape. Also an infamous reality star who shall not be named has made the big bottomed look mainstream. Unfortunately for me I have gained lots of weight in my midsection and no longer have the same hourglass figure. Last year I lost about 45 pounds doing non strict paleo and daily workouts. I still have about 40 more pounds to go. I
  25. Hey guys! It's been a while since I've been around, but now I'm back and am ready to focus on my fitness and diet goals! I've discovered over the past few months that when I don't set clear fitness goals for myself or have people hold me accountable for them, I slip up a lot! The past few months have had a lot of ups and downs consequently. I've learned my lesson though and now plan to get involved in the coming NF challenges so I can make the changes I want to happen a reality! MAIN QUEST: Lose 35 lb of fat and get strong GOALS FOR THIS CHALLENGE: 1. So Long Sugar! I eat sweets wa
