  1. 2018 is going to be a year of healthy choices. I'm betting on it! Yes. Literally. I'm betting on weightloss this year using HealthyWage. I am betting $30 a month for the next six months that I will lose 10% of my body weight. You better believe I'm going to do it! When I succeed in June, I will be $100 richer. Whoo Hooo! The problem, of course, is my stupid knees. They carry more than they should, and I am paying the price every day. When I started NF, I made similar weightloss promises, and did lose over 10% of my bodyweight...even more. But I have been
  2. I was trying to find a good theme. But I think I'll take the easy route for now, and go with my name sake. And some Harry Potter. I wrote some venting stuff. It wasn't very good. So let's cut to my big 2018 goals: Blackbelt Prep Iaido Prep Get down to 15% body fat I need to build back up a whole lot of habits that have fallen to the wayside the last couple weeks/months. I also haven't done much physical activity in December, with the official start of the 'new' job and the travel prep and traveling. So slow and steady is how this is
  3. So towards the end of July 2017 I joined a gym. I started going fairly regularly (maybe around 3-4 times a week, that number did fluctuate depending on the week), in the interests of gaining muscle, getting stronger, and generally acquiring a more athletic body. Beforehand I had already been an active person, having picked up the hobby of running long distance in 2015 as a way to lose weight. I did, around 30lbs of it (when I was at my lowest weight). Weighing myself for the first time in a good while in January 2018, I realised that I have gained quite a substantial amount
  4. Hallo! I iz bak. So life kinda kicked me in the proverbial balls. Last time I was on, I was kept afloat by my wonderful RAGErs but I was still struggling with an overall lack of energy, a seemingly unending cold, and was compensating with an increasing amount of junk food. I also went from being one of three people in my department at work, to being the ONLY person in my department - which meant I was working overtime and weekends to keep up with the workflow. I started experiencing dizziness and (according to my doctor's diagnosis - I had no clue what was happening) anxiety attack
  5. I'm back! Or at least I hope so. The wedding in September was a smach, everything turned out amazing and I had the time of my life! So ok, the wedding came and went and a few weeks later I started feeling like shit honestly. Was always tiered, couldn't sleep properly and got more and more sensitive around certrain smells and stuff. And then came the puking. So yeah....turns out we didn't even spend a week as proper man and wife until shit got super real. XD I'm preggers! YAY! ... ... I think.... To be totally honest it scares the living crap out
  6. This is my first NF Challenge. This is also my first Forum of any kind....bear with me! My goal with this challenge is to get my eating in order. This party needs to end! I'm going to stop eating refined sugar, white flour and eat a more "clean" diet. I will also get on the elliptical at least 3 times per week and strength train at least 2 times a week to start.
  7. RES

    RES: Still Here

    In continuing with my quarter long challenges (because I'm kinda lazy like that) our goals are still: Gym 3x/week Food 5x/week, would be 7 but let's be realistic Nerd Fitness 3x/week posting something/somewhere doesn't have to be my own thread, hopefully this will become a daily habit again. Tracking spreadsheet is in the signature Gym has been a struggle, I am committing to doing this in the evening if my other half doesn't get up with me in the morning to go. Food...probably could be better but not horrible, my job is quite social and since being
  8. For this challenge, I am keeping the same four big goals from my last one, but I have adjusted to allow more flexibility where I need it. My last challenge was rigid and quantifiable (I even had a spreadsheet that never got filled out, ha) but what I’m finding is I need a plan that is flexible in positive ways and allows me to work around weeks where I have tons of grading, lots of stress, or a million things come up. I need the challenge to work for me and to help me achieve things, and I think my goals in the last challenge were a bit lofty and rigid. The big change for this ch
  9. It's been awhile... Over the past past couple of months I have lost my way in terms of fitness. A combination of the end of the school year, my wife being hospitalized a couple of times (eventually being put on bed rest), the birth of my first child, and spraining my ankle have caused me to neglect working out and eating properly. Now that we have gotten into a routine (as much as possible with a newborn) it's time to get back to taking care of myself. Quests Lift: 3 days a week - no excuses, I have the length of this entire challenge free from work, so th
  10. Hi All! My husband and I have been hoping for a positive pregnancy test since October 2016. Before we started trying, I went to my doctor and asked specifically about my weight and my choice to be (and remain) vegetarian (I'm about to turn 27, 5'4 and 175lbs). My doctor was of the opinion that I "shouldn't be trying to make any drastic lifestyle changes" if I wanted the greatest success in getting pregnant. Which, for me, meant that all care about my weight and eating habits stayed fairly unhealthy. The more I talk to other women, the more I'm hearing that the first thing their doctors told
  11. Since I'm not going with a new theme or changing my routine in any significant way, I decided to just go on with the last challenge. Exercise: 3 WODs a week 3 lifting sessions a week 2 Krav Maga classes a week Nutrition: Aim towards 200g of protein a day. Stay under 100g of carbs. (Yes, I'm back to tracking macros) Batch cooking will be of much help to attain those goals, so I'll try to do it for the entire duration of the challenge. Key word is TRY.
  12. 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
  13. And thusly it was spring. I emerge from my winter 'bulk' feeling disillusioned with my gains and ready to change things up. Its a bit of the same, a bit of some new, in four weeks, I'm gonna do some stuff: I still want to run 5k. I was pretty damn close last time around. My leg, while not entirely normal, is healing, and I want to 3 miles with it. I still want to deadlift 315. This time I want to do it without a belt, and definitely do it with proper form. I want to hold a 3+ second freestanding hands
  14. I'm having a little drama trying to figure out the best next step for me program wise. Ideally, I want something that doesn't grind me into the ground quite so much so that I can use the additional recovery for met-con style work (I'd like to add fitness and leanness to my still growing strength profile for several mostly personal reasons). From what I gather, the juggernaut method looks like it'll be the right fit for the purpose of allowing extra recovery, except its a 4 day a week program, and that doesn't really fit with me being a shift worker. Just wondering if anyone h
  15. Hello, It's kind of funny how I wanted to write a post here so i could get help and suggestions and now I've been sitting here for about 10 minutes trying to figure out how to start this lol. Probably should start with some basic information I'm 25 currently and I weigh around 115kg and have a bad back due to a fall in 2013 and naturally the weight also wouldn't be helping my back. I generally have discs shift out of place around the T5 section so middle of my back, I generally have a disc in my neck move out of place and generally either twice my hip bone or a disc in my lower back

    Agnarr: Respawn

    Hi! It's been a long long while. During summer vacation I derailed embarracingly, had a bazillion beers, ate whatever the heck I wanted, woke up every day feeling like I had lava on my guts and one of my friends was mistakenly taken into custody and had to spend 4 days locked up until we managed to get things straight and get the poor dude out. Good times... But now it's time to get back on track and shed the extra Kgs. I've already returned to CF and Krav Maga. I'm also officialy dieting, that is obsessively tracking macros and calories (especially calories) even on w
  17. Hi there! So this is my first challenge and I have no idea what I'm doing. I guess I should share a little about myself, I am a 22 your old who has frankly no idea what to do with my life. Currently I am a receptionist at a vet clinic but that may change in the near future. I have two dogs, an 8 month old German Shepherd and an almost 2 year old Lab mix. Between work, dogs and my relationship, I have almost no time to do much besides eat and sleep. My boyfriend is also on here somewhere and absolutely loves it, so he keeps trying to convince me to post a challenge. Here goes nothing. Here
  18. Hi!! Ive been following NF for a while but i finally got off my lazy ass and started doing something to lose weight. I'm getting married in July, and while my gf loves me no matter what, my being overweight really bothers her and i can perfectly understand that, i started putting on over last 6 years because of how lazy I'd become since i stopped playing basketball. Firstly i want to lose weight so i can actually feel better about myself and more confident when i go out and just my general bearing. Secondly i want to be able to play again. Properly. Lastly i want her to think i look good
  19. Hi, I'm Steph. I just joined the academy as I simply can't do this on my own. My relationship with food and myself is horrendous and needs fixing - so I thought I would start a thread to be accountable. Following the mindset module in the academy here are the first things I've been considering: I was trying to write my why statement and started writing words to help me construct it, the list of words is this: embarrassed, ugly, tired, bad role model, weak, unhealthy, PCOS, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, migraines, lazy. So yeah.. that's super positive... I don't have
  20. Hi, I had my very first challenge last month and managed to get really sick during the final week. I still did pretty well overall, but hopefully I can do a little better this month. I’m starting my last semester of college on January 9th so I need to factor that in to this and the next three challenges. Me: I’m a 38 year old female with about 10 more pounds to lose to get to my goal weight. I also really need to improve my fitness and rebuild strength lost due to serious problems with my Crohn’s disease. Diet Goals: 1. Log all food for the month in MFP.
  21. Hello all, I actually signed up a week ago and have started a personal challenge in the Rebel area, but figured I should introduce myself. Long story, I’m a 38 year old female and I’d been able to maintain a healthy weight of about 125 to 130 my entire adult life until about a year and a half ago. That’s when the intermittent abdominal pains I’d been having stopped being so . . . intermittent and I noticed I was losing my appetite. I made a doctor’s appointment but, of course, the soonest they had available was three weeks out. About a week late
  22. 2016 was hard for me. I came in at the beginning of the year wondering how the hell I'd get through it, because I already gave 2015 everything I had. I did get through it, but it was mostly paddling to stay above water rather than making much progress. Things that went better than expected: My job (even though I don't feel I did great, they keep giving me interesting work to do so I must be doing something right) My kid (he did much better at school and at Italian) My uni studies (only three more units to go after this one! I finish in January 2018, wooooo!)
  23. When we last left our hero, RhiaWolfe had succeeded in completing her first round of training and finding healthy vegetables to eat for fuel. While she still has difficulty waking up in the morning, she's never late for a training session or event. She's not quite ready yet to embark on her quest to save Hyrule from evil Gannondorf. More training is required. She must get strong and build endurance to fight her way through mobs of monsters and take on the most challenging dungeons (Water Temple... ugh). Quest 1: Strength and Endurance Continue going to the gym/we
  24. I'm going without a theme for this challenge. They go to hell in two days anyway Goals will remain the same: CrossFit and Nutrition. In addition to that I'll add a third, looser goal called “Start the World”. I' ve recently finished reading “The Way of Men” by J. Donovan. Donovan is an author whose books I refused to read because of ideology incompatibilities. You know, the whole white supremacy, anti-feminism thing made me a tad uncomfortable. I decided to give it a chance; after all if it turned out to be total crap it would only cost me 6 bucks. I devoured the book(yes
  25. After completely flaming out on my last challenge, I am rejoining the rebels and getting back to basics to wrap up the year. A bit about myself. I teach middle school math, enjoy playing board games, and 2016 has been the busiest year of my life (bought/remodeled my first house, got married, first overseas trip, and first baby on the way). I have lost about 85 lbs over the past 2 years and would like to lose about 60 more, but have plateaued for awhile do to inconsistency. For this months challenge I am going to focus on some basic things that I know I can do that have been succ
