  1. I'm keeping this one really simple and focusing on eating habits. For the last year, I've been trapped in this vicious workout cycle, where I push too hard because I want to do the things I used to be able to do, I strain something, and then I'm sidelined for a bit. So, I'm backing away from pushing myself in the physical arena and instead pushing myself with better eating. Also, the kids start (virtual) school next Thursday, so I need to keep things easy and loose this challenge. Goals: 1. Delay the meals. Whenever I have a yogurt and coffee at 7:00, lunch around 1:00,
  2. "Tempered by the fires of Hell, his iron will remain steadfast through the passage that preys upon the weak. For he alone was the Hell Walker, the Unchained Predator, who sought retribution in all quarters, dark and light, fire and ice, in the beginning and the end, and he hunted the slaves of Doom with barbarous cruelty; for he passed through the divide as none but demon had before." - UAC Report File 9REIZDUR Welcome back to another challenge! I'm so glad you joined me . In the last installment, I was FINALLY able to gain some traction and create a consistent routine
  3. What's a 260 lbs warrior to do? Cut the bullshit and stop being an asshole No more gluten free, paleo, eat only this, don't eat that... just don't eat like an asshole. No more half-assed, unplanned workouts or making excuses to get out of them... just don't work out like an asshole. No more not working and complaining about money problems... stop being a lazy asshole, and stop spending money like an asshole. The big thing is I'm prioritizing getting more hours at work so I can not be stiffing bills and better yet saving up. I also want to get myself back to li
  4. Kendo in Japanese means "The Way of the Sword". This month I want to focus on a few things, one of the big ones is practicing Kendo and improving on my skills. I will also have other things to focus on such as my eating habits and time management. Time management is a big one as my life is getting full again. I feel like I have so much going on #rangerbrain and I'm trying to fit all of it in. I feel like I've made some BIG steps in my life towards living healthier. So, without further ado, let's get started, shall we? Goal 1: Sword Fighting: My first
  5. Go Santa, go! GET THE GAINZ! The holidays have arrived here in the States, and while I love them, they're also hard. Mental health things, the days are getting shorter, and some families are no good. For anyone else who doesn't have a great blood family, this helps sometimes: http://www.yourholidaymom.com/ Also, take no shame in making your own family! In light of all of this, eating and lifting really help, but they're also the LAST things I want to do when the holiday blues hit. So this challenge will mostly be about being consistent - I'd like to do somethi
  6. Hello Nerd Family! It has been awhile since I have been on the Forum but I do lurk from time to time. Today tho I need your help! I recently reached a target goal weight and I feel really proud of myself. I thought today I would have a cheat day and go to lunch with my co-workers. HUGE mistake. I ate a double quarter pounder, a half of a med fry, and a few sips of sprite. The problem now is I am sitting at my desk and I honestly want to cry. I feel terrible like I want to throw up I wont but I feel that bad. My stomach is in knots and mentally I feel like a steaming pile of kry
  7. I can't find my old log, so I'm starting a new one!
  8. Based on my moderate success securing my castle in the last challenge, I'm heading into the next challenge with some similar goals. Don't eat like an idiot! This mantra pulled me out of a couple of potentially sticky situations. Also, I'm going to track every day on MFP. It significantly helps link my eating with mindfulness. Do PT daily! I want to get back into running, and my #1 limiter is my set of janky knees. Really, it's not my knees' fault. They're just the victims of my horribly snug hammies and quads. What's a girl to do? Well, I have access to the MWOD
  9. I've been dragging for almost a month now with feeling overwhelmed, under-motivated and nearly defeated. I'm pretty sure this happens every winter. I'm uncertain how to combat it, or, if it is something like SAD, if I can even fully avoid it at all. But, if there is one thing I have in common with my shy, and unconfident Jedi in game? No matter how many doubts we face, how frustrated we are, or how verbal our complaints are about failing to meet our expectations... We Don't Give Up. Which means ... I'm here for another challenge my fellow rebels! REBELLIONS ARE BU
  10. Thrillho

    Hurtin' Bombs

    So I learned a lot of things during the last challenge, and got to experience some different kinds of progress than what I'm used to. Namely, I've gone from what I've termed 'milquetoast lifting' to 'actual proper lifting'. Before, I would lift weights, possibly even regularly... but it was never very HEAVY, it was never very HARD, and it was usually on the machines that really impair range of motion and actual progress. More recently, I've been enjoying the fact they moved about 1200 pounds of dumbells up to the track zone of the Sports Centre, where I work out, along with a lifting / clim
  11. Yeaaaah, I don't have a theme this time. I wanted to see what that's like. So! My last challenge was working well, but stuff was getting too complicated, so I'm keeping the stuff that works and changing the stuff that was stressing me out. What's working: - The lifts. You just can't keep me out of the gym. I hardly even need motivation. I love going. I'm not tweaking the program further at this time. It's still working great. I am experiencing the itch to try new things, but currently waiting it out and just eyeballing other programs for possible later experimentation. Ma
  12. Looks like keeping a food log on here just wasn't cutting it for keeping my eating habits in line. I've started adding food to my old MFP account to keep myself more strictly on track....I just don't know where my willpower went. I was doing relatively well before Halloween, and then it's like Halloween candy hit and suddenly I was back down the boredom/stress eating spiral of doom...
  13. Andu-falah-dor! Let Balance Be Restored! I'm making a slow transition back into Nerd Fitness because I have been away too long. And it is showing. My eating has gotten terrible. My exercises have become non-existent. Everything is just out of a good, healthy balance. I need to fix this. I want to fix this. I've come back to the Druids for a number of reasons, but the most important one is taking the time to re-learn this balance. Find your inner peace, begin and continue the healing process, and build up a strength both physically and mentally.
  14. OK, I did a little better than that, but I still didn't really live up to my own expectations. Howdy, I'm Thrillho. I think I was here last year sometime, maybe the year before, but I am generally over in the Monks' Dojo. I enjoy boxing and MMA, and I've been more focused in slowly reducing my excess weight (down to 255 from 268 so far this year, 238 at my lowest last year and 288 at my highest last year, so... it's a struggle). For this particular challenge, I need to focus more on the strength that my body is lacking. I'm still heavy, but I need to worry less about
  15. Previous challenge would have probably went a lot better if I wasn't suffering from a throat infection, followed by a persistent cough, followed by fatigue, followed by not sleeping well. This challenge I need to identify ways I can manage the the problems getting in the way of me being active and then get active. I haven't been to the gym regularly in about 9-10 months now mostly due to injuries and illness. Most of these were unavoidable: I badly sprained my ankle walking around a castle which I made worse by not realising how bad it was (the excessive bruising and swelling should have bee
  16. For the past year or so I have been gyming with the few weights I have at home and doing body weight exercises. I had a bit of body fat and decided to eat a lot less carbs, a lot less calories (about 2000 a day) in order to loose the fat I had. This was successful and I cut the fat. I then decided that it's almost winter (I live in the Southern hemisphere) and that I need to get bigger and build muscle. Hence 6 days ago I joined a proper fully equipped gym. In those 6 days I have been to the gym 5 times and I have been going hard in the gym as well. Exactly 6 days ago I also started eating mor
  17. Annyshay was raised on stories that her Gaffer told. Folks in those stories had plenty of opportunities of turning back, only they didn’t. Annyshay wants to be like the characters in her Gaffer’s stories. Her own story started a few years ago as detailed in her Quest. She wants to be strong, wise, and compassionate. Luckily, she joined the Rebellion and is working to become the hobbit she knows she can be. For this challenge, she will focus on nourishing herself with the healthful habits that she continues to build and refine. Goal The First = Nourishing Eating 5 experiments from E
  18. Resolutions. Goals – this time I’m srs bsns. Every New Year I make resolutions, and every time I drop them early, or not even start them at all. This year, after doing my pre-challenge-mini-challenge as a warm-up I’m determined to keep the accountability up, and start smashing some goals. I have three main goals, one life goal and one NFR goal. “A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come trueâ€- Greg Reid. (MG1) Exercise Points: All exercise counts toward the main goal of 50pts 100+ po
  19. Annyshay was rudely awakened by Navi in July 2015 (for more details, see her battle log). She has come a long way since she was first summoned to the Great Deku tree and swept up in an adventure far bigger than herself. So far she: listened to her fairy (start days with quiet time with God) found a sword (daily movement) bought the deku shield (mindful, level 5 meals) followed the dungeon map (GMB Elements!!!!) aimed the fairy slingshot (craving control habit) used the compass (tracking nutrition) recovered gold skulltulas (meditation, studying, and recovery) cut lots of grass (5-6 vegetable
  20. Quick intro! I'm karinajean, 38, live in NY state, commute to NJ about an hour each way (so lots of time in the car). I practice tae kwon do several times a week, take weapons and boxing classes in addition, and am trying super hard to do really good form push- and pull-ups this year. I have a crazy mean (yet super sweet) cat and live with my husband full time and my stepdudes 1/2 time. I motorcycle, knit and spin, and am endlessly ignoring how messy the house is. I'm an assassin because I like doing all the things, and because I want to be able to do push-ups and pull-ups -- if I can do those
  21. Welcome All, I have been on NF for a while now and whilst I have met some brilliant people and learned a lot of things my personal progress hasn't been great. As of today I am exactly one year away from my wedding and I want to look good in my wedding photos - not just good but god like. Not only that but after we are married we will be wanting to start a family and I want get rid of my bad habits and build some good habits to pass on to my kids. So the time between now and then is the serious time for me to get stuff done. I have a definite start point (this challenge) and a definit
  22. Well, on one side, I thought there was a 2 week pause, and secondly I'm still working on the same goals than last challenge, so this one is going to be pretty similar to the other. Except this time I'm going to be AWESOME. Keep enjoying the summer. Take it seriously, really, there won't be another summer until next year. Keep on planning and doing activities that I could not do during school time or in winter weather. Meditate. At around 11 am. Try to make it every day. Really, it's good for you. Yes, it's good. GOOD. Did I mention it's good? 30 DAYS IN A ROW!!!! GOAL ACCOMPL
  23. OK, so I've got more questions. Yes, I know I tend to post more threads asking questions than I do make posts responding to threads, but there are still things I want to know. So, as far as eating and working out goes, I've heard some people say that you need to eat before working out to activate your metabolism, and I've heard some people say that you need to wait until after you workout to eat so that your body is forced to use the energy it has stored up to do work. When I first came home for the summer and began strength training, I tried eating just one meal a day, but I found that no
  24. Obligatory Pre-Challenge Brain-Stuffs: I've had a lot of success over my past few challenges, my last one was a bit of a let down because life threw stuff at me but I still managed to overall improve myself I think. However, while I've seen vast improvements with my health, strength and flexibility, I feel like I haven't been seeing much progress looks wise. And while most of my brain is like who cares you're stronger and awesomer, there's that part of me that is like... but summer is coming (here?) and I'd really like to rock out a bathing suit and not feel super self conscious. I know this
  25. That's right. I said 8 week challenge. And I'm back, baby. Over the past year or so, I’ve had a lot of difficulty keeping up with challenges and finding focus in my life. It’s been tough trying to improve myself when I didn’t know what to improve. So I gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of the progress I had made so far. But there’s one thing that I won’t ever lose, and that’s the experience. I took some time off and tried to decide what it is I wanted and how to achieve these things. I had done a lot of awesome things in the meantime like run a marathon (and longer!) and
