  1. My time in this place is nearing it's end. My skills as a rookie Roller Ranger have kept me alive this long. The city has been good to me, it provides food if you know where to look as well as a means to get around if you know how to use it. The many slopes, rails and artificial surfaces suit wheels well. Outrunning the other scavengers is all part of survival in this city. My mentor has taught me well; he has shown me how to look after my body, how to fuel it for best performance, how to look past the bad and find the good. But now it is time to strike out on my own. He has his paradi
  2. So it's official... I am addicted to powerlifting. I made it official today and changed my class to warrior. I love feeling like she hulk after a workout, and adding 10lbs to my deadlift (even though I think I could have pushed further), and 15 lbs to my bench last 6 week challenge was awesome. For this challenge I plan to continue getting stronger, more consistent, and perfecting my form while loosing a few lbs. To do this I must: Combining Powers - Continue lifting heavy things, and add in some LISS/cardio on off days - I need to add at least 3 days of LISS consistently throughou
  3. Hi fellow recruits. I am new to the forums so bear with me :-) I am a 51-year-old gal who is wanting to level up nutrition and fitness. I am still navigating through the Academy, and all the awesome information it has to offer. Main Quest– to lose 6 to 10 pounds during the course of this challenge; thereby increasing my health and wellness :-) Goal 1-MOVE-scheduling a walk;minimum of a mile, 3x-4x per week. Goal 2-LUNCH-plan ahead and pack/bring my lunch 4/5 workdays. Goal 3-SWEETS- to not eat any unplanned sweets/candy at work ( The location of my crappy eating ). I plan to use my fit
  4. Hello! So this is my first challenge, so tell me if I'm doing it wrong... _______________________________________________________ From my Intro Post: A bit about me: My name is Beth; I am 33 in November; I am an American living in Australia, and I am a SAHM with a soon to be 4 yo and triplets that just turned two. I am currently 87.9 kg on Day 1, with some fused vertebrae from a car accident ages ago and some military service, and a deep seated need to do this right this time, despite the fact that I have been a 'bare minimum' type of person my whole life. Why I'm doing this: I'm doing
  5. My name is Valerie and this is my 2nd 6 week challenge, and my first as a scout. I've been a member of the Nerd Fitness Academy for a little over 2 months, and I'm really enjoying it. I'm getting SO much out of this experience, and I'm feeling amazing about myself and my performance. I am a PhD candidate in my last year of school, and I'm working hard to keep both my mind and body in shape. I was born a runner, but I lost a lot of my fitness abilities when I dove headfirst into school. I want to take that power back and be proud of my strength, my body, and what I can accomplish. Ove
  6. So! As the title states I am currently a ranger but have noticed the crossfit thing just isn't for me and recently (as in this past week) started working out with a powerlifting trainer. This challenge is going to be pretty straight forward but I am hoping (and really think) I have found my workout passion. My Large Goals: Train: I have 2 weekly workouts with my trainer that are 1 hour each, and I will weight train once a week full body on my own. My rest days will be active rest with at least 30-45 min of walking or yoga, and I get one straight rest day with nothing required.
  7. Ok here goes for my first 6 week challenge. Main quest I want to lose 20 kg by Christmas and get fitter and stronger. Quest one I read about this in another post. I want to go on the S diet. It goes something like this. No sweets, no soft drink, no sugar except sometimes on days starting with S. I am though going to swap out a Sunday for my birthday. You have to have sweets and naughty things on your birthday. A: for no screw ups B: for one screw up C: for two screw ups Quest two I'm being easy on myself for this one because I've hurt my back. I want to get up to the body brigade 2 workout b
  8. So I signed up for the wipe out run that will be taking place here in Sacramento on September 5. My main goal for my first 6week challenge is to compete and only stop to catch my breath only four times throughout the race. To do that these are the goals I need to meet: Lose 20lbs by September 4 |STR + 3 Not really necessary but it will help me be healthier and in better shape overall for the run. I will work out for at least four days a week. Alternating between light and heavy workouts. A= 22 days B= 16 days C= 11 days D= 5 days F= 0 days Cut soda's out of my diet for 6 weeks |CON +
  9. For my 6 week challenge, the main quest is to lose 6 lbs. In order to do this, I will work on my hiking/road marching. I will get my 12 mile time to under 3 hours while carrying 30 lbs of additional weight. Also, I will work my L-sit time up to 1 minute straight and steady. And lastly, I will get my 5 mile run time down to 45 minutes. The reason I am working on these specific goals is that they are, with the exception of the L-sit, actual requirements of my current profession, and I would like to exceed the standards that are set by my organization. I plan on losing 24 lbs over the ne

  11. Those of you that cheer me on already know I got a Harley during the last challenge So I figured a Mad Max theme would be great this go around. Fury Road is not for the weak, and neither is my challenge this go around. Let's Ride... Task 1: Prepare for War - The road is a dangerous place, one must be prepared to fight for what is yours in order to survive - Crossfit/Stronglifts/Weights 3 times a week. Grading A: 3 times a week, B: 2 times a week, F: 1 time or less. Task 2 - Embrace the Heat - The environment is not a nice place, stay hydrated and get used to it. Drink a mini
  12. My name is Valerie and this is my first 6 week challenge. I've been a member of the Nerd Fitness Academy for about 5-6 weeks, and I'm really enjoying it. I have never posted here, but I am active on the FB women's group. I am a PhD candidate in my last year of school, and I'm working hard to keep both my mind and body in shape. I was born a runner, but I lost a lot of my fitness abilities when I dove headfirst into school. I want to take that power back and be proud of my strength, my body, and what I can accomplish. Over the last couple of years, I have moved from barely able to run a m
  13. CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES! Okay, guys. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Comrade Talls. I’ve been on my fitness journey for a few months now and a NF Academy Member since May 2015. I won’t give you my life story in the first post, but if you want the full scoop, my forum introduction is here. But here we go: First challenge. -- Up until a couple of months ago, I hadn’t read a comic book since I was a kid. I used to have a fairly respectable collection of comics when I was younger, but as I got older, I just kinda’ grew out of the hobby. FLASH forward 20+ yea
  14. Good evening fellow recruits, A little about me: 49 yo F, 5'6" (167cm), 156 pounds (71kg), attorney, mother of a teenager, owned by two cats and a very confused dog. I joined the Rebellion a couple weeks ago to jumpstart my weight loss and fitness efforts. My main goals over the next few months are to lose 10 (ok, 11) pounds before my birthday (December) and to try to PR at a half-marathon on October 31. My quests toward these goals, over the next 6 weeks, are: 1. Track my eating and drinking (all beverages, caloric and not, alcoholic and not) daily. I have the MyFitnessPal app
  15. C II - Entry I, Long ago, I was told a story. It's an ancient tale, and it goes roughly like this... A grandfather is speaking to his grandson, and says "Within each one of us there is a battle between two wolves." "One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, inferiority, resentment, lies, and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth." The grandson ponders this, before replying, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The grandfather says simply, "The one you feed." This tale has truth to it, to be certain. Recently, while travelling along
  16. Hello everyone! I've received the NF emails for some time now, and I finally decided to get on the forums today and take my first 6-week challenge! I chose to be a Ranger You can see my challenge quest and goals here. I've never been a member of a forum before, so this is a completely new experience for me. Go easy on me! - Katie
  17. Hello all! So, this isn't actually my first challenge. I used to post here sporadically a couple of years ago, but I'm terrible at forums so I disappeared. Since then, I sort of fell off the fitness wagon (not helped by overdoing it and messing up my back a little), but now I've climbed back on it, and decided to try posting here again. I love the community and attitude here but I am terrible at forums...I always lose track of threads and then wander off. Taking another swing at it, and because it's been so long I'm treating this as if it were my first challenge. Here's to new beginnings!
  18. Introduction: Hello All!! I'm Lula, and this is my very first 6-Week Challenge! I am fairly new to Nerd Fitness, but I tend to want to jump right in to the battle, so here I am starting the 6 week challenge. I work in construction management, so that means I spend a lot of time at my computer with semi-frequent job site visits. But overall I haven't been the most active person over the last few years. I joined the rebellion because I wanted to make a lifestyle change, and it was the only program I could find with such a great community that actually supports a healthy lifestyle. My current S
  19. Rioghain takes a deep breath and fingers the Blood Opal jewel which hangs around her neck encased in an elaborate and time-darkened silver frame, attempting to center herself in preparation for the start of her training. She still finds it difficult to believe she is even here, on the steps outside the hall of one of the oldest Blood courts in Askavi Terreille. A world away from her home in Chaillot, she knows only an inkling of what her older brother had to sacrifice to secure her a place in this court and its training program to strengthen her mind and body before making her Offering to the
  20. I've been absent from this site for a while. In that time my fitness has really fallen by the wayside. I still work full-time, but am now also a part-time masters student in a sit-down major (Finance) and just spent months packing and moving. I'm mentally and physically exhausted and can't seem to recoup. I feel a good part of my problem is that I've abandoned my discipline in these areas: Sleep - if I'm lucky I allow myself five hours on a weeknight Diet - I'm eating double what I need due to stress, and have fallen off my paleo wagon Schedule - My days are over committed and extreme
  21. So my last challenge had a lot of slip ups but I am moving forward and looking to really make this year a good one for myself. I joined a GAME On! challenge with a buy in of 20 bucks, and I am taking my goals from that and implementing them here. Since that started yesterday this 6 week challenge is going to be more like 8! Train All The Days- 60 minuets of activity 5 days a week, 20 minuets minimum of activity on "off days" 6+ Days per week - A 5+ Days per week - B Less than 5 - F Drink All The Water- 3 liters per day, every day. 6+ Days per week - A 5+ Days per week - B
  22. Entry I, The dirt road I walked upon became more faded with each step, and soon enough I had journeyed beyond any civilized land... into the wild. This was it. This was my first time travelling outside the village, and into the world, alone. I had only minimal training before this moment; my home village had been visited on occasion by a Knight of the Rebellion, and he had taught me a few things. But I was not ready... not yet. That would be my first real challenge. Just being able to survive out here. "Remember, when travelling into the wilderness, it's not swords and arrows that will kil
  23. Yay, it's time for my second 6-week challenge! (I'm one day too late, but still.) As my exercise schedule currently consists of Crossfit, sprinting and running, I figured I belong to the Rangers guild! ^^ As for a race, I think I'm a nymph: I like being alone in the forest, I secretly wish to live in a tree (house) in the woods, I have many plants in and around my room and I have a thing for flowers! Main quest My main quest of the previous challenge was to lose 18 lbs. This is still ongoing, so I'll keep it as a main quest – but honestly, the subgoals for this challenge don't necessarily
  24. Hey there everyone, Title is in reference to this shirt, which I think is hilariously awesome (and don't choose Nah!) http://www.lookhuman.com/design/76687-burpees-for-paragon-squats-for-renegadepint Always been in decent enough shape, but definitely wasn't into any sports or anything physical in school. So there was a long time where I didn't 'identify' as someone who went to the gym. I started exercising casually when, in a period of a lot of stress, I was hit with a freak, really bad case of acne practically overnight. My college had fitness classes, so I started aerobics. It was prett
