  1. Part of me loves this time of year, and part of me dreads it. I love the cold, clear days, the colors of the leaves, and the crunching sound they make as I tromp on them. The shorter days, rainier weather, and the looming aspect of even shorter days tend to give me less energy, and tend to make me just want to hibernate. The best way I've found to conquer the hard part is to embrace it. I realize that in the spring and summer I have more energy, so I tend to stay up later ,and do more things in the evening. Fall is a time for coziness, reading,watching TV, gaming , or crafting in the evening.
  2. This isn't my first challenge, but this will be my first challenge that I will complete (I hope ). Im a gym owner in the Netherlands and I'm trying to train myself. I am having a really hard time doing my training so I thought to use this topic to get some training structurally. Main goal: One handed pullup! For a long time now I am pretty close to my one handed pullup. And I think it's time to get this hard skill in the books. If I can keep up my training towards this goal, then I should manage it in six weeks. So here we go! I will be posting the progressions that I'm using
  3. I haven't been active on here since 2017 and I think back then I only completed maybe 2 challenges. Since then I have let laziness and a near fatal fall over a year ago keep me from adequately taking care of myself, however, today I say NO MORE! It's time to get back to being serious about my health, even if the main motivator is that I recently started a job as a delivery driver for Amazon and end ever day feeling worse and worse (especially my knees, lower back, and shoulders). So without further ado here are my current goals. BIG PICTURE: Increase mobility in order
  4. I've got 7 more weeks to go, theoretically, it could be more or it could be less, and there are still some things I need to do to prepare for Wolvie's arrival, so a great part of the challenge will be focused on that. Goal 1. Prepare Wolvie's arrival. - Wash crib reducers ✅ - Wash clothes ✅ ✅ - Wash nappies ✅ ✅ ✅ ✅ - Assemble and attach crib to bed ✅ - Buy the few items still missing ✅ ✅ - Prepare hospital bag ✅ - Prepare questions for my next medical appointment ✅ - Finish writing my labor plan for the hospital (still need to collect some mo
  5. The ThenMorbidly obese, full-time nerd, soft creative artist type with a penchant for food and videogames. Little to no relationship with exercise until I had a health scare senior year of college, weighed in at 333 pounds and told me to consider surgery. Joined a gym, but didn't get around learning to eat properly until maybe two years later, when I started keto. Keto taught me to log and track, lost much weight, began some barbell 5x5 work and fuckarounditis at a local gym.The NowFormerly obese, part-time (ok still more or less full time) nerd, slightly hardened creative artist type with a p
  6. Hello there, maybe some of you can give me insights on how to gain the ability to control your body and become more flexible? In a sense of pole dancing, yoga, gymnastics, possibly parkour - it all seems so undoable to me and I'd love to have this controlled strength of gymnasts who can slowly lift their legs off the ground to a handstand or jump up from lying flat on their back. I think it might be a fallacy of mine: It all looks like you do not need a huge amount of sheer strength to do it. But maybe you do. Because usually gymnasts do not look that
  7. Dear Community, 2 years ago I came accross the article on Maya who performed aerial silks. I got very intrigued and I decided this week to take my 20 sec of courage and do a class. It was a disaster, I was unfit, I could lift myself and it was a horrible experience. I quit the training after the 2nd session, but I don't call it quit. I am really out of shape, and I would like advice on what I should train to be able to actually take a beginner class. If someone has any tips that could help me, I would really appreciate! Thanks !
  8. My favorite class to play in D&D is a rogue. My favorite book series is about an assassin. My favorite tropes in anime / fantasy / etc, are the sneaky, do good from the shadows types. One of my favorite game series is Assassins Creed. Assassins are relied on to work alone, but they have a strong network of people supporting them with info, details, contacts and everything else. And my at work gym is off limits until we're allowed to break the "Firewall" between the warehouse and front office so... more bodyweight than not for the time being! We're
  9. 27APR2020: 191.2Lbs - Fasting; 1.98mi run/walk (2min/3min intervals) 28APR2020: - Not fasting; 1.68mi walk w/ doggos 29APR2020: - Intermittent Fasting (16:8); 1.68mi run/walk (2min/3min intervals) --- Break in all attempts at everything, for no real reason --- 09MAY2020: 2.12 mi run, with warm up walk and cool down stretching afterwards 10MAY2020: 2.19 mi run, with warm up walk and cool down stretching afterwards (husband came out too!) 11MAY2020: Unsurprisingly, my legs are very sore; taking the hint and taking a break.
  10. After years in the wilderness (lifting weights in my local gym), undergoing countless horrifying ordeals (queuing for the one decent bench press, getting annoyed as the awesome gymnastics rings setup is used for crossfit classes), as the outside world burns I have returned to my spiritual home: The Guild of the Assassins. Whilst others may be lamenting their lack of a squat rack, the assassins know that all that one requires is the weight of their own body (plus maybe a pull-up bar and a few other bits of equipment) to maintain and even increase their strength. Solitary confinement
  11. I'm closing in on 4 years in the forum now, having done my NF Introduction back right before leaving The North. I've finally been able to catch-up on updating my original training log, Third World Warrior: The Eight-Year Training Log (after some technical difficulties deleting like 2 years of logs) and I'll be using the Daily Battle Logs to both track my training and consolidate my challenges. I have been all over the place most of my life, hence many challenges with Rangers, but my issue is that I feed my training ADD and just ride the tides, making hay when the sun's out. Because of this I'v
  12. RES

    RES: FEeD me

    Obligatory RES challenge disclaimer: So, the NF challenges are turning 10 years old, my time here just passed the 6 year mark...My first two years and 14 challenges were spent with the Adventurers where I was made an ambassador, then the guilds were reconfigured and the Rangers were a better fit for my goals and the leaders graciously accepted me as one of their own and I've been here ever since. During this time I've learned a lot, about myself and what works for me, and as I've stated previously the more important item of what doesn't work for me...There are many goal
  13. Alright @WolfDreamer called me back to join Nerdfitness for their 10th anniversary of the challenges. As someone whose life has been changed by what I read in Nerdfitness, articles by Steve Kamb, and completing in the challenges, it was only right that I compete. Since I am following WolfDreamer's lead (and since I LOVE ATLA), here's my setup: Air: Minimum of 10 Pranayma sessions (7-minutes) per week Fire: Minimum 15 rounds of shadowboxing Earth: Minimum 5 sessions (at least 30 minutes) of Ashtanga yoga Water: Drink at least 1 Liter of water a day
  14. Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation In honor of Nerd Fitness’s 10th birthday, I thought I’d be nostalgic as well. So, for my 36th challenge here, I’m going back to the Warrior’s Guild to focus on strength training. It’s been over a year and a half since I was with the Warrior’s Guild and that challenge was not successful. The only one I’ve failed! I started here back in 2014, after having dropped weight and started a fitness routine on my own. However, with Nerd Fitness, I honed my focus and a
  15. Fitness Goals Summary Build a sustainable strength training program that fits into my schedule and uses both powerlifting (with dumbbells and maybe preloaded barbells for now) and bodyweight exercises to build functional strength Achieve my first-in-a-long-time pull-up Achieve my first-in-a-long-time push-up with good form Does not bore me (I'm the type to rewrite my workout regimen every single time I do anything) Peri (or is it circum?) workout nutrition Controlling my hunger on rest days Food tracking for this. The low
  16. Okay, I've been tracking workouts in Fitocracy, and while the way it runs me through a workout is nifty, it feels like one more thing to keep track of since I'm summarizing for challenges here, too. I think the simplest way to do it is keep track here and then I can reduce my typing. I will post measurement updates and such about once a month (I track weekly in MFP). I'm not posting today since I've been off-plan a few days (sugar and sodium) and I'm having TOM fluctuations. My main goal is to reduce body fat pcentage to 22%. At the moment, I'm in a calorie deficit (-250 a day is my goal)
  17. Hi guys, I was just wondering if any other Rebels had hopes of being on the show ninja Warrior, and what training you do.
  18. It’s the start of a brand new year, and a chance to respawn and start driving things in the direction that I want them to go in. Therefore, new battle log! Except we’re going a day early, because 2019 starts on a Tuesday and I do not like that. [spoilered is a long, non-essential reading background] The 2019 battle plan… For this year the bulk of my training will live in here rather than being first and foremost in my challenges. The challenges themselves will likely focus more on things like nutrition, mental health, and general lifestyle things
  19. Hey! I'm Kerri. I joined the Academy today and wanted to start a new battle log for this purpose. Most of what is in my old log are outdated measurements and some remnants of black & white thinking. I'm excited to take this new step in my leveling up. I am currently 255 lbs. (Down 40lbs from my highest weight) I am eating three meals a day regularly, with only occasional snacks. I have binge-eating episodes less than once or twice a month? I no longer have tachycardic symptoms and my asthma is controlled without medication. My fasting sugars are out of prediabetic range,
  20. Look who decided to show her face again. *bullies laughing evilly and cracking their knuckles* (jk) So long story short, I got wracked with guilt the other day because my dad kept falling and we couldn't get him up and I am like the most useless thing ever when it comes to strength and stuff. My dad is in a wheelchair now but still stands up to do some things like putting on a belt (I'm going to convince him to switch to suspenders) or going to the bathroom or switching between chairs. But he still falls and we're powerless to help him and too stubborn to call for help (because we'
  21. Hey everybody! The day this challenge officially starts, Rabbit season opens in my area! So I'm probably going to aim to try and take a rabbit this year, but it depends on if my buddy is ok with me butchering any over at their place as my family definitely wouldn't be okay with that haha. Starting Stats Age: 29 Height:5'4" Weight:240# The Goals: Exercise daily!! My plan is to do bodyweight training 2x a week and walking at least a mile on my off days. This time I'm in it to build endurance! 7 days- A
  22. Figured I might as well start a log. I do a little bodyweight, some barbell and some running. Currently starting 5/3/1 and doing a bit of trail running. I log some stuff on Fitbit and Myfitnesspal for my calorie and macro counting. So now eights today but a 4.33 mile hilly train run in about 50 minutes.
  23. Hi Everyone, I don't have funny theme this challenge. What I need to focus on the moment is difficult: Keep working on food. Ms. Moros suggested that I work with her health coach for food stuff, and I agree. I need to get some help in this area, because what I am doing is not working that well. Focus on the evenings - this is where I lose focus for a number of reasons - I'm tired, some of my medicine is wearing off, and so on. If I do the few small things in the evening, I set myself up for success in the mornings, and Ms. Moros wants to do the Ro
  24. So mostly this challenge is a continuation, but I thought I would reach back to an older nerd show for inspiration: We can rebuild him - we have the technology. Main goals are below the fold, but here's the main thing: 1. POST! ACTUALLY POST! POST! 2. Get better about scheduling my goals. In other words - "I will do ACTION at TIME in LOCATION" - use better cues to do the things 3. Actually use the zero week to debug the challenge, and come back and edit this one.
  25. Guys! Good to see you. It’s been a while. After being active, on and off, in the community from 2012 through late 2017, I dropped off the face of the map. I left mainly because of an ankle sprain that laid me out on and off until September 2018. The injury forced me to set aside my dreams of recovering my old parkour skills for a few months... and then a few more. Since then... it’s been tough to come back, and I’ve suffered physically as a result. I’m no longer as lean as I used to be. What’s more, although I’ve tried to re-implement my old exercise and diet routine, I
