  1. New Year, New Ninja, New-trition

    haha..Aren't I funny? (Last Challenge: My satellite internet started acting screwy and made it near impossible to post, so I got frustrated and quit posting last challenge. I did complete more of it than it looks like. Turns out it needed aligning. Got it aligned Monday and it's working well) So seriously, I'm going to try something totally new. I decided to sign up for Nutrisystem. I figured up my average grocery costs and nutrisystem is about the same.I'll get to eat more of a variety with NS, because as I've complained about before, the grocery options around here suck. The most variety is at Wal-Mart which is 35 miles away and has been the site of a murder, 2 shootings, and a carjacking. In the last month and a half. I also paid off my car which was my largest monthly bill. So that gave me a little wiggle room. My frozen box came in Friday, and the rest, including instructions, is supposed to get here Monday got here Saturday. There's a little naggy voice in my head that says I'm being lazy & whiney and all sorts of negatives, but most of me is really excited. Most of this challenge is going to be about sticking to their plan. 1. Eat only the Nutrisystem meal plan. The hard part of this will actually be the frequency. Though, looking at portion sizes, after the first day or two, that won't be as difficult. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, & two snacks. I'm not much of a breakfast person and I've never really been a snacker. I buy snacks, and I try to eat them, but it never happens. Sooo, I need to eat more frequently. I'll also have to log everything I eat. I'm going to use their app, Numi, for a while. Really silly why, but apparently if you use their app, when hit weight loss milestones, they send you teddy bears to commemorate the occasion. 2. Active for 10 minutes 3x a day Their exercise requirements set the bar low. But that's cool. I probably need a low bar. I mean, I can't even do more than a few seconds of a bar hang. Last challenge, I made 2 TKD workouts and did them a few times. I'm going to do them when the mood strikes, but for this challenge, my focus will be walking and yoga. Last challenge, I started walking Turtle at lunch and after work. We both like that, when it's not raining, so I'm going to continue. At least 15 minutes at lunch and at least 15 minutes after work. I'm also going to walk 3 miles at least once a week. I need to start adding weight to my walks as well. I've got to start training for my pack test or I'll never pass it. So the second time I walk 3 miles, I'm going to add about 15 lbs. 3. Duolingo At some point during the holidays, I got completely distracted from Duo. Still can be German, Japanese, Greek, or Spanish. I want to learn enough Spanish to have a conversation with The Shogun that consists of more than "I'm a horse. They are dogs. He is a cat." 4. Calm I finished the "7 Days of Calm" program last challenge. I'm going to aim for the 21 days of calm this month. 4. Reclaim my Morning Routine I let my morning routine fall to the wayside over the holidays. I need to get back into it. I'd like to build on it, but I've got to get back where I was first. So for the rest of this week (17th Jan) I'm going to make my bed before I leave. Starting on the 21st, I'll add 10 minutes of yoga.
  2. Hello! I’m Virginia and as you might have guessed I am a fan of manga! My gateway manga was Sailor Moon. I am also into anime, superheroes (Avidly watching Agents if Shield currently) and reading all sorts of other books. I am also near obsessed with personal style and enjoy Doctor Who. I am an IT project/office manager type by day, student (studying styling & media) by night, wife and mom 24/7. My son is 3 and he’s hamsome (a handsome ham- I love puns). My hubby and I joined a gym last year and I began doing weights and yoga a few times a week, and found NF around then. I never became an active member, so I kind of forgot about it. I was looking for at home workouts because I’ll be freezing my gym membership when my semester starts, and rediscovered NF! My Main Quest is to clean up my diet. I am a vegetarian, and I want to cut fat. I also want more energy to keep up with my busy life. My smaller quests: 1. Cut processed sugar/simple carbs. I have been a baked good junky my whole life, and I haven’t been able to kick the habit in the past. My husband is also doing a month of no sugar, so I thought I’d try again. I’m hoping someone has ideas for a food that can help curb the craving for a bagel/cake/cookie. 2. Get my coffee drinking down to 6 oz a day. I currently drink 16-24 oz a day. My plan is to gradually reduce the cups I have and replace a cup with green tea. I’m always biting off more than I can chew, so I wanted to keep my first challenge very simple. It’s a pleasure to meet you all! ~V
  3. I need something new and shiny to kickstart 2018, so I got myself a brand new battle log! I have a whooole bunch of shinies to chase this year, it's going to be great. My plan is to screw the four week SMART goal framework and chase them on my own terms, i.e. inefficient and haphazard, but with gusto. Everyone keeps telling me you can't do everything at once - to that I say pfffft. Here are things you can expect from this log Handstands Climbing Aerial Pole Flow Acrobatics Flexy things Strengthy things ??? Oh and fooood! Goal thingies 2018 Because what's new year without setting way too ambitious goals? Fitness goals The big theme for the year is to improve my freedom of movement. Upside downness Handstands every day yo! Yup, the whole year. (2/365) Flooow I have a bunch of Marlo Fisken flow videos. I want to master them Scary stuff This is a big one, I'm such a scaredy cat and I've developed a bunch of weird mental hangups this past year Tuck and straddle jump to HS Forearm stand HS to bridge Back walkovers HS forward roll Honestly, pretty much any kind of tumbling Some kinds of pole HS Heel kips Topping out when climbing Stop hurting myself Less fun but oh so necessary. A little more focus on prehab won't hurt me. Other Some other more or less vague goals Climb 3 6cs Become strengthier (better push ups, moar pull ups) Run a little Play on my new toy - an indoor aerial rig Don't take things so seriously Other goals Cook 100 new recipes (0/100) Read 50 books (1/50) Travel somewhere cool To contradict the last goal I also want to increase my savings by €10000 Use my hands more Get a non-movement based hobby I really don't expect to nail many of these goals, but that's not what new year's is about right?
  4. Sea Level I : Respawn

    I'm back. It's hard to believe it's been more than a year since I've been here. Let's go. I: Gain Strength Bodyweight workout at least twice a week. Particularly, I want to focus on improving my overhead pulling and pushing. These are areas where I'm pretty weak. Pull-ups and shoulder presses/wall walks will be a part of my workouts. II: Walk Do my three-mile walk at least once a week. This should be simple. I have a three-mile route that I can walk to work, or I can take a loop around my neighborhood. Poor weather and short days may limit the frequency of this walk, so I only put once a week. For Christmas, I bought myself a GoRuck pack. I may get a ruck plate as well so I can carry weight easily. I want to incorporate this into my hiking. III: Eat Right Intermittent Fasting (calorie input between 11:00 and 19:00) six days a week. (Saturday breakfast may be permitted!) I've been doing IF on occasional days over the last month or so, and my weight has moved from hovering around 190 to hovering around 180. I know the scale isn't the best tool to measure, but I do feel better, too. I'll drink tea and water when I wake up. For l lunch, I'll pack stuff like salad, fruit, nuts, veggies, boiled egg, green smoothie, etc. Good dinners with veg and protein. Limit breads and empty sugars. IV: Read Read one book during the challenge. I've set up a Goodreads reading challenge this year of 15 books. I want to start and finish one book during this challenge. Bonus: Keep daily Standard Memorandum entries I bought a Standard Memorandum book this year. I've seen old notebooks like this at my mother's house, and I think it's a great way to document a year simply. There's only room to write a couple sentences, so it's easy to write an entry each day.
  5. BB's battle log

    Hey folks, first time doing a log like this so let's see how it goes. I'm doing a monk ranger type hybrid, and my little training notebook isn't makin the cut anymore. - I'm gonna try to post my training, and most of my meals (I sometimes forget what I eat because I'm a college student who don't cook most of my meals). - for training I do a little bit of martial arts almost every day. I do light cardio most days too, and I've got a schedule of calisthenics and lifting that I'll post eventually. I'm just trying to get as well rounded a training system as I can to support my martial arts. Speaking of I train in taekwondo (just got 1st Dan woot) as well as a little Hung Gar Kung fu and Judo because I like variety.
  6. Whats your breakfast?

    Just curious what you other folks eat for breakfast on a regular basis. I've been doing smoothies for awhile, with the following ingredients: 1/2 avocado scoop protein powder (whey) Salt (cardiologist orders) 1 tsp chia seed "Handful" Spinach Almond milk Water Cinnamon (sometimes) 1/4-1/2 cup frozen berries So what do you guys/gals eat? Whats the weirdest thing you put in smoothies, eggs, or toast?
  7. Quick and Easy?

    Hey all, I need some advice and ideas. I work 60+ hours a week, basically from 7:30a to 9:30p with very little time to eat during the day. I do get breaks but not really enough for anything complicated. I have all day Sunday available to cook and do my house-hold chores. That being said, I eat out a lot. Which is bad. I need to start eating better but I keep coming up with the excuse that "I don't have time". Basically, I wake up, get ready for work, eat out, come home, brush teeth and straight to bed. One of my jobs is at a health food store which is great because at least my options can be on the slightly-healthier side, but during the main part of the day I teach and it is hard to get away for more than enough time to say run to Burger King or Taco Bell (both across the street from the school) and head back. So, basically, I would love ideas for meals that I can bring with me for lunch and dinner and maybe some snacks that I can eat as a teacher and a cashier. I bought some protein powder and I might start doing shakes for breakfast since I can just drink that in the mornings on my way in and while I start my lessons. Is that a good idea?? I've never done shakes before but I am getting to the point where I am so lost and desperate that I will try just about anything. I NEED to start eating better. I feel like crap all the time and since I have anxiety and depression, my poor eating habits only make them harder to handle.
  8. So after meeting a few nerds IRL and not having a daily battle log, then finishing my six week challenge that I loved getting feedback on I've decided to create a battle log. I'm opening up with a long term goal: the Providence, RI marathon on May 1st (Link). It'll be my first marathon. I ran into a little trouble with my half marathon (Wicked half Marathon in Salem, MA) in October, but I said that if I ran it under one and a half hours I'd do a full marathon in the spring. I managed 1:25 even though I was walking/limping for about a mile. This tells me two things. One, holy crap I'm way faster over distance than I thought. Two, I've done something(s) horribly, stupidly wrong. My leg cramped up and my knee didn't feel right for weeks after. It would feel fine walking, but would hurt after I ran for about a mile of running or hitting a hill. I started running too soon after the half marathon (about a week) and lifting too soon (less than a week). I obviously out-paced myself (I was late getting there and couldn't help trying to "make up" time even though I was running my own timer). And I kind of, sort of, didn't warm up that well. Or possibly at all. Depending entirely on your definition. So, to try and avoid injury and to try and maintain a good pace I am if anything over-planning. Being an accountant my natural response to virtually all stimuli is to make a spreadsheet. So I did (link). One tab with my mileage (I track Km from working on 10 and 5k goals), and one tab with my lifting regiment. I've altered 2 things from my half marathon plan: I've stretched the mileage buildup more slowly (18 weeks) and I'm tapering a little more. I start training on the 28th so if anyone has suggestions, notes, criticism, encouragement, knitting patterns, tips, tricks, or knows a good bar in Providence near the race. If anyone's coming: I'm not registering until after Xmas, so we can team up. Also, I don't own a car so I'll pay for gas for a ride. There are those I suspect of coming.
