  1. "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
  2. I need a place to log what I've been doing. What better place then NF?? To say that life has been busy would be an understatement. On 03/23 of this year, my daughter, Beatrix "Trixie" Viola, was born 8 weeks early. Thank the Lord that she didn't deal with any issues besides just being a tiny little princess. She was in the NICU for 5 weeks and 1 day. Or 36 days for you mathlete's out there. We were able to bring her home on 04/28 and life has been SO MUCH better since that day. My wife, @PrincessMononoke (aka Heather) and I spent a crap ton of time up at the hospital w
  3. I was on a bit of a roll with the previous challenge, but I had a random encounter with the depressions, and before I knew it, it's almost the end of the month. No training, no reading, no writing, no lifting, no hygiene. I even forgot what color my toothbrush is. Welp, reload and tackle this challenge again. I'll be seeing the doc this week to see if we can adjust anything. On a plus side, I've been getting a lot of training lately. Impostor syndrome is kicking in, insisting that this will not last. Whatever. I'll just provide the best service I can and worry about the
  4. I've found out from my previous challenge that my task list was quite difficult to accomplish due to factors that I was unable to take into account. I will be trying a different approach of habit-building rather than addressing specific targets one at a time. The Rule of Three Focusing on too many things is focusing on nothing. I end up looking for small fires to put out rather than addressing the huge ones right in front of me, burning my eyebrows off. Before bed I will write down three things I need done the following day--that's it. The three will be priorities
  5. Hello! Well, I wanted to share some of my experience here. I made a 180° last January 2, 2018. I weighed it myself on December 31 and I was on my heaviest... 315 pounds. As a 5'4" guy, this was unacceptable, shocking and right on wrong. I'm a microbiologist so I did what I do best... I scienced the crap out of weight loss! I researched that I need it to consume fewer calories so I got myself a food journal. I started tracking EVERYTHING I ate. That made me figure out that I was consuming insane amounts of calories daily so, I started "polishing" my eating habits. (see that I
  6. Hello to everyone that reads this. I know that I am late posting but I wanted to establish what I have already started on in this challenge. Like always 3 health and 1 level up goal. To add what I have been doing. My Health challenges: 1 serving of a green vegetable per day No soda (okay I have been cutting back on this item and now feel it is the right time try to push this challenge) Replace the previous with 20ox/1L of water a day. Level up goal: I need focus on having a fresh start everyday no screens after 9:30pm everyday Like
  7. Happy New Year fair Druids My last few challenges have left me uninspired, so I am joining you with my efforts to realign and find fresh perspective. It has been a year of sea changes and I am in need of some introspection I enjoy GIFs and emojis and exploring raw emotions. I'm keeping things very simple to start, and will try to flush out details as I go FOCUS Moving Meditation (4X per week/Leaves) Combining my martial and fine arts practices, this is an experiment in meditative mark making that utilizes qigong movements, starting with
  8. This is supposed to be about focus and I ended up posting under the last challenge. The last challenge of no focus didn't go too well overall. I liked the idea of doing whatever I felt like doing but that turned out with me sitting in my chair most of the time doing nothing. After my learning experience with the last challenge, I need the focus of Bruce Lee to get on the right track! 1. Improve my Karate fundamentals For the next three months, I am not taking any formal Karate classes. I will still teach but I don't have the money to pay for clas
  9. Hi, Moros is back again. This challenge is similar to the last one, except for the following things: 1. I am doing the whole-body mobility prescriptions in Deskbound Sun - Fri. They are 10 minute exercises to loosen things up. 2. I am upping Yoga to two times per week 3. I am also practicing the "bracing sequence" - basically aligning while standing several times a day. This is so I get in the habit of doing it. Pretty much everything else is the same. Details below:
  10. Just completed my first challenge in... over a year now that I think of it. I've hit a rough point in my life, so that was a victory I'll happily take. My last challenge was with the Assassins, setting up a habit of morning kettlebell swings and Turkish Get-ups with a 15 lb kettlebell. I do the routine every weekday morning adding one more swing than the last time and a TGU on each side for every set of tens past 10. I'm up to 35 swings and 2 TGUs/side as of Friday. Since I'm a bard, I see no reason not to also pal around with the Druids. As long as I've got some momentum to k
  11. Summer is the perfect time to level up in all areas. My major focuses for May are learning a second language (German), working towards my dissertation defense (pushing for Fall), losing 8-10 lbs, and developing better money habits. In depth... Start learning basic German: spend 20-30 min per day using Duolingo to practice my German, watch German shows, etc.; use what I learn throughout the day where I can Dissertation proposal draft #2: Review and use all feedback from first draft to make edits; read more (10) articles and (2) books for more data Lose 10 lbs of fat: Co
  12. Hi all— This is my first challenge after lurking around Nerdfitness for a few weeks. I joined a gym at the end of January (with the rest of the n00bs.) I started with spin and BODYPUMP classes. I am grateful to these classes for getting me moving and building my confidence, but BODYPUMP needs to be switched out for some good ol' fashioned weight training if I want to see serious results. Working out is now a solid habit, but my creative practice has been slipping. Here's my plan for integrating all of my hard work and using my time more wisely: MAYLAKAE'S 4 WEEK GO
  13. Good afternoon Rebels. I have been a part of the academy for 6 month's or so, and let the vast world of the rebellion forums overwhelm me so I hid in my comfortable little hole. No more! I am here to continue my Sprint to New Years Challenge, and focus in on other parts of my life that I need to get myself to my next level. So without further ado, word wall. 4 week challenge. NO RED MEAT. This is a message that I am going to try and spread as wide as I can. I cannot pretend that I will ever go full vegan, or even vegetarian, or that I will never eat a burger again, however, beef
  14. Breaking from my DragonAge Challenges to refocus and find a little of what I’ve lost. I used to have a nice foundation and starting point but those have scurried away from me. I also want to find some way to incorporate some of the NF Academy quests into a challenge. I’m sure I can add in some of the mindful stuff in. I contemplated joining the druids this go around but I love the assassins. Going back to basics with quests revolving around the 5 senses. Using some of the information from www.chopra.com/. Plan is to focus on the 5 senses and use them to he
  15. Hello I am looking for one or more someones to help me stay on track. I have a tendency to slip if I don't have the accountability that comes with talking to someone. My current challenge is with the rangers and I think that is where I'll stay for a while, but being the same class is no must. After all a group of more than one class tends to do best. The things I am currently working on include: weightloss, training for a triathlon, starting with some body weight training, focusing at work, focusing at home to do the things I want to do, walking the dog more, survival skills (
  16. Why So Serious Calibre?!? Why??? Because I need to be, because I have to be, because I want to be!!! Last challenge saw me having a good time at my convention, having a little depression afterwards.... then I just ghosted!! Lack of focus, lack of drive, lack of motivation. OK, OK, you're judging me, I get it Joker!!!! So what needs to happens is that I need to focus on myself. Really, truly focus on myself. No really, I'm serious!! Don't burn all my stuff!!! Now, what do I mean by fo

    Machete Swings

    "Focusing on many things" is an oxymoron. Time to focus. Hardstyle. THE QUEST: 300 Kettlebell Swings every day, for 28 days. SIDE QUEST: Track the macros 6 days a week. Roughly 184 grams of protein daily.
  18. "Even an instant counts. In a battle for your life, a second is an eternity, an eternity that may decide the outcome. Warriors aim at succeeding, therefore they compress time." --Carlos Castañeda Having forged a sword of willpower through discipline, to follow the Way of The Warrior (druidic lore) will require training. The next step must be learning to aim the sword. Direction is crucial for success. This challenge is about achieving focus on the path, and beginning to transform that focus into results. For that, I must sharpen the mi

    Shaeon Focuses

    Sleeping got much better with my last challenge, and now I want to work on things that bring focus to my life. I have a terrible tendency to flail around, wondering what I should do. I've been working on taking care of the basics, and doing so has made me more centered. I've also recently had a breakthrough on some things I am the most indecisive about, and I want to work to encourage myself to stick to this path (yes, I'm being terribly vague. I'm not quite ready to discuss it yet). So this challenge, I'm working on turning off all the noise and getting focused. So for this chall
  20. I walk away for a few weeks.... what the hell happened to my forge?!? Ohhh yeah.... kind of didn't put anything away and left things to fester Time to clean this up!!! So, I ghosted out right after the start of the last challenge, didn't have anything to contribute, left you all high and dry, and for all that I'm sorry Time to get back on track. The last month has been a considerable change for me and now it's time to get things organized, get things cleaned up, and get things better around here. Goal One: Heating Things Up In The Smelter I need to get the home fires burning hot and str
  21. WHAT'S UP REBELS!!! Last month's challenge ended in a complete flop... but that's okay. I knew I had set the bar higher than would be advised, and I tried my best. I failed, but I learned from it. Let's do this again guys, and this time we're going to fly through it like falcons or something cool like that. Rad. THIS TIME AROUND I'm going to focus more on getting into focus, which to me means less worrying about exercise and more getting my brain into check. Of course, I'll still be hitting the gym and whatnot, but my challenge will be focusing on focusing. I'm thinking probably yoga/meditatio
  22. PROJECT: B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Balance Restore Energize Accomplish Transform Humor Engage With the new year come the hope that we can keep a good handle on whatever life throws at us. We're pretty good at it, but there is always something out there that puts a wrench into our plan. Especially when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Thus, I introduce Project: B.R.E.A.T.H.E. As we work through our quests and adventures to happiness, it's important to have a reminder to take that needed breath. That is my hope for this group. While we work to help each other succeed in our fitness quests
  23. Ok, my last few challenges have not gone well: The main reasons for this were: I moved across the country, and had to consolidate things from four different spaces into one apartment.My foot pain has been pretty bad - like cry like a small boy painMy job is like a energy drain - it's an unhappy place, and it takes an enormous amount of my energy. It makes it hard to do a lot.But, after some deep reflection, I have two thoughts:I have been a moron - I am trying to fight too many enemies at the same time. I need to re-build up my NF exercises more slowly, and nail them down before going
  24. Working toward keeping up with my goals primarily this challenge, schedule and stress got the better of me the middle of 2 challenges ago through most of the last one. Time to fight back Challenge goals: Main goal - slaying the anxiety dragon. (Apparently I didn't kill him... just used an elder scroll to send the bugger forward in time. Typical.) SQ1 - Mind games. My mind has felt like it was going to explode since I switched into summer shift, so this needs to take spot 1. Meditation, 6x/wk, and devotions 5x - goal for both is 7, but I figure the grace days will come in handy since I'm still
