  1. Hello, happy 2019! I'm Jenn, not exactly new here -- I've tried this challenge thing before but it's been a few years. So, my goal this round is to stick to my eating plan and exercise routine. I started the Whole 30 on Jan 1st. I'd like to actually do a W60. I did two successful rounds of W30 last year and lost about 8 lbs each time with a total loss of 25 lbs in 2018. So, it's time to start chipping away at 30 more ... Current weight: 177.6 Goal weight for end of round: 170 Goals: Food Plan - Whole 30 Exercise Plan - MWF Gym cardio + resist
  2. I skipped the last challenge, but things have still been happening over here in my little corner -- wedding planning, family trip to Spain (holy drama llamas guys), work getting really busy, and the normal episodes of the sads. When we saw this movie fiance was like THAT'S YOU. Unfortunately true. So the year is shaping up like this: February bachelorette in San Diego May 6 Flying Pig Half Marathon June 3 Spartan Sprint Ohio July 1 WEDDING!!!!! September Honeymoon in Portugal I'm such a lucky duck. Goal 1 - Dial in
  3. Formerly, Curl Brogo... It's time to chill out and seek my center again. The one constant this year has been painting and developing my artwork. There's gonna be a lot of that. But my morning routine, exercise, and diet have been all over. I'm gonna focus this in the morning routine. That's the part of my day when I am the least drained. Mega goal 1: Build a good morning routine: M_Goal 1: Up at 4am. If I'm gonna get stuff done in the morning I'll need time to do it. So I gotta get up earlier and stop hitting snooze
  4. HI HELLO GREETINGS Let's cut to the chase, shall we? ~~~THE CHALLENGE~~~ WHOLE 30 Yep, it began yesterday, so it goes through zero week, though not all of my goals do. It grade like so X/30 per challenge Track protein and calories here. This is important. I need this goal because apparently when I do not have it, things go horribly wrong. I spent about a month basically dirty bulking SO Whole 30 will also be a gentle cut. Whatever. Avg week calorie goal: 1300-1400 Protein goal: Not graded for zero week b
  5. Come to the Table (actually, it's time to turn the table!) Getting back to basics here. The image of a table is very comforting, centering to me. I need that after all the crazy traveling! 1. Do a Whole 30 Eat at the table The food I'm going to put on my table during this challenge is going to be really clean. I need a reboot after all the traveling. To hold myself accountable I will keep a food log. 1xp per day (.25xp per meal). I don't have the energy to do a whole 30 right now. I've restarted twice already. I think more importantly I
  6. This is my last challenge before finishing my MPhil Dissertation. At last, I feel good about working on it until I could have it finished. I have the deadline a week before September 24th and I've written 18 pages (of 50-60) at this moment, so for this challenge I've thinking about what kind of lifestyle can help me passing this month the best way. Goal #1: One page a day I must write 32 more pages in order to present the dissertation to my examining board. Each page counts 1 point and the goal is getting more than 30 points. Easy? It seems so, but I've bloc
  7. We all carry around baggage, and eventually, it's too much. I loved the idea of sorting through it all, taking what really is important, and walking away from the rest. It's what drew me to the Druids in the first place, and I realized that it's taken me this long to sort through a lot of it and pick out what really matters to me, and now I have to decide what gets left behind. This challenge I'll be doing Whole 30. I'm really excited about it, and I'm hoping this helps me feel better. I'm also excited because this is a great opportunity to break some really bad stress-eating/bingi
  8. Was debating on visiting the rangers this round, but I think the Assassins still fit what my end goals here are, especially since I want to work more on the bodyweight training that I've been struggling to keep up (in large part due to stress) I ramped up most of last month for a Whole 30, which I started today, and so far it's off to a rocky start, as I completely forgot to make breakfast ahead of time last night so I wouldn't have to worry about it this morning (had to get up "early", by my night-shift habits, to help out with some gardening.) Thankfully my lovely friend/adoptive mother

    Whole 30

    Hello all! I am considering embarking on the Whole 30 train. I would like to plan things out as much as possible so I have no excuses if when I get busy. What are your favorite recipes/snacks/advice for this new journey? Thank you!
  10. She woke from dreams of running the fields with the black horse beside her. It was spring and the air held a luminous glow of power and happiness. Birds called, filling the air with the music of hope and Surakha's blood sang with the glorious thrill of the chase. Their path took them towards the banks of the river and she tensed, ready to turn. The black horse bunched powerful muscles and arched into a graceful leap to the far bank. Surakha turned sharply, skidding in the grass as she tried to change direction and stay dry. Her hindquarters went out from under her as the edge of the b
  11. I'm doing the Whole30. I'll be done next week on June 11 but one of my goals is to continue for 60 more days in order to solidify the pales habit. Doe anyone have the Whole 30 as part of their goals? If you don't know what it is, it's a detoxifying eating program pased on Paleo. In the last 22 days, I've dropped 2 pant sizes, my skin is glowing, my hair softener, and I feel great. It's not a master cleanse type of detox, there's a lot of food. Just no dairy, sugar, grains, or processed foodstuffs. Check it out at thewhole30.com
  12. So I've hit an egg rut. I'm doing a whole 30, but I'm finding that I can't have eggs for breakfast everyday. I tried googling, but everything is how to make sweets with replacement approved ingredients. This is not what I'm looking for. There has to be more to breakfast than eggs and sweets. Anyone have any ideas?
  13. Main Quest: lose 25 lbs Goal #1: continue Stronglifts 5x5 workout (I am currently in week 4...this is my second go around with SL) Goal#2: Eat Whole 30 for the 6 weeks Goal #3: complete one of the below cardio activities daily for the 6 weeks 4 mile walk 3 mile jog60 minute road biking40 minutes of ellipticalcomplete a TABATA of rowing/box jumpsLife Quest: practice golf 3 days a week for a hour each time (focusing on full swing) I am 48 years old, 6 foot and 210 lbs. In the fall of 2012 I was 185 lbs but not particularly fit. Over the past year and a half I have really been good with li
  14. That's become my new mantra. I can keep going. I can keep growing as a person as long as I follow that one simple rule. Be a little braver today than I was yesterday. That's exactly what I'm going to do. My name is Jess. I'm 22 years old, class 1 obese and training to be an assassin. I did well in 2014. I made a great foundation with my health and fitness. I'm ready to graduate to an intermediate level. I know what to do now, I just have to do it, and stick with it. Train for Spartan Sprint The next two months are a little nuts for me. Next Sunday I am running my first ever hal
  15. Hi Druids! This is my third challenge. Confession time: I have yet to complete a challenge. I am doing this challenge with the Druids because I like your philosophy of figuring out the great why. That is what this challenge is all about for me - trying something new to ultimately figure out why my relationship with food is so disordered and how I can change that. My relationship with food is terrible. It always has been. Even when I was at a healthy weight after losing 75lbs, my eating was disordered and obsessive. Food has always been a source of stress and guilt for me. Always. As lon
  16. SEIZE THE DAY! Alrighty, Princess Heather is back in action! I have been MIA around here for the past few weeks, and it was due to me being in a bit of a funk and also lots of life happening. I have been promoted at work, from office manager into a sort of project coordinator, responsible for overseeing several ministry teams and being the point person for outreach and service projects for my church. It's a fun environment, and out biggest service project(s) of the year happen at the end of September so I've got lots going on for that. We are also in the midst of TTC, and keeping healthy
  17. Hi everyone! I'm Teros and this will be my 9th challenge. I slumped the last 2 weeks of the previous challenge because of depression and then a massive screw up in terms of eating. I'm a sad panda because of this I'm fixing that this challenge by coming back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxcWbOZ-AC8 What helped me immensely was believing in Consistency>Intensity last challenge. I want to keep going with this by building a full everyday routine. This challenge I'm aiming for a Flawless Victory 1) Whole 30- Gotta eat right. Nothing else to say. 2) Cold Showers- I just starte
  18. So I am back for my 6th challenge. The last couple were not so hot. Especially the 5th challenge. I was sick almost the whole time, and I gained 11 pounds. End of challenge I was 289lbs. I want to prepare for a bowling in the USBC Open Championship in Reno, Nv. We bowl May 17th and 18th. The team I am bowling with, I have been with for a couple of years now. I want to deliver a little Shock and Awe when they meet me this year. Last year I was around 340lbs when I bowled. This year, I want to get down as much as possible. We all buy the same shirts there so we can match as a team.
  19. Hello again Monks! The last time I was here in the NF dojo was not particularly profitable, so I headed over to the Druids to get my head straight and my year started soundly. Chapter 5 was rewritten and now the story continues... Chapter 6 My über goal is to be as fit and healthy as I can be by 40. 576 days to get there as of today! I was thinking about this goal, when another side possibility occurred to me, I could be a black belt in my 40th year if I worked at my TKD seriously (and my knee holds out). So, that is a kind of big sub goal... So what am I aiming at right now? I have
  20. I am still working on my "year to awesome." Some things have gone well, some have not. My biggest issue has been my diet. I have not made it a priority, so it keeps getting lost in the shuffle. So this round will be a full on emphasis on diet. As luck would have it, Lent is almost upon us, which gives me both a spiritual and physical reason to start a new diet lifestyle. I will do the following: Health and Fitness Observer the Whole 30 protocol during the days of Lent. This starts on Wednesday, March 5 and ends on Saturday, April 19. Yes, this is after the end of this challenge, but
  21. With it being the new year, I've been very reflective and I've never stuck to anything besides nerd fitness. Within 6 months I dropped 4 pants sizes and I'm a lot stronger now. I want this to be THE YEAR. This is the year that I take everything I've learned and finally finish my weight loss quest. Main Goals: Lose 140 Pounds / Complete a Spartan Race I don't know how far I am on the weight loss since I haven't weighed myself since May, but clothes have been a good indicator that I'm going in the right direction. I don't want to get discouraged over how much left I have to lose. I'm just
  22. Main Goals: To Lose 100 Pounds / Complete A Spartan Race It's time to kick it into high gear with my RPG character: 1) Finish another Whole 30. I started my 2nd Whole30 on Nov 1st, so I'm chugging along with it. +3 Strength, +2 Constitution 2) Warhammer 3x A Week. I want to have a base workout, and then start adding some new exercises into the mix to keep things fresh. I'll also be including stuff from Challenge #3, which is.... +5 Strength 3) Make some new gym equipment. I want to make a kettlebell and a tornado ball. They both look like fun and they're something new to use to mix i
  23. Loren Wade's Urban Ranger Challenge I am enduring The Great Wholetexalypse of 2014 for the oncoming Tenacious Texas Test of Toughness in January. I will be the best I can be before I meet the Nerd Herd. Back in March/February, I switched to a bike-only lifestyle during my very successful minimalism challenge. I am kicking off this challenge with my childhood anthem, going back to my minimalist roots, embracing my jack-of-all-trades personality, and my ever-growing desire to be a Ranger in the modern world.Quest: to gain more control of my fitness and lifestyle.DefendAttend Krav Maga 3x weekly
  24. http://www.spartanrace.com/malibu-obstacle-racing-spartan-sprint-2013.html So the time is finally here. My Spartan Sprint Race in Malibu happens this challenge! My Main Quest: The true goal is for myself to get healthy. I want to reach that under 200 mark. That will take awhile. I'd like to be as close to 250lb as I can before the race. I won't get there, but as close as I can This challenge My quest is to get ready to finish my first Spartan Sprint Race. Goals this challenge to help me complete my quest: #1 Don't eat the bad things! I am getting back onto strict Whole 30.
  25. Round 4 Main Quest: To lose 100 pounds 1 - Food - Complete the Whole 30. So I started the whole 30 and it's a massive pain. I've gotten into yelling matches, gone hungry, and fallen asleep with tears in my eyes because of how defeated I've felt- but I'm going to beat this. Pass or Fail. There is no leeway. I must finish the whole 30. +5 Constitution 2 - Exercise - Warhammer Training 2x+ a week. I had originally done warhammer training 3 times a week. However, with trying to do the whole 30, part of the detox is having no energy and I really feel it now. I'm going to do this trai
