  1. And so begins the hero's journey. Starting January 1st, for 60 days I will be participating in the Darebee Hero's Journey fitness program, a role-playing program that presents challenges, opportunities, and threats accompanied by exercises that must be completed in order to continue on the journey. This will serve as a prequel to an even greater challenge, Age of Pandora, an immersive post-apocalyptic fitness quest. In addition, I have set some short-term and long-term goals. Short-Term Goals: * complete Roadwork 30 Day running program * complete a Darebee daily dar
  2. I want to live by the motto "today is the day." Every day I have a struggle, such as a conference where food will be served that is really of an unknown calorie count, I decide I will start over on my journey tomorrow. But I want to remember that today is the day. One meal might not be the best, but that doesn't mean I can't make the next meal better! I want to make the changes I need in my life now. So I want to try to start tracking my meals a bit better, and making more movements in my day (even just regular walks). I want to drink less alcohol. But I also want to maintain a gre
  3. Nascence: (Noun) A coming into being; a beginning. Introduction: I'm back. It's been a while, so allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Richard and I'm a newspaper editor who loves hip hop, board games and hiking. (For my origin, check out my battle log.) I'm a wordy person, so here's your spoiler warning that I tend to ramble quite a bit. I used to go by EternalJourno, but I renamed myself a while back as Rey of Light. Rey is Spanish for king and obviously a play on the word "ray." The idea was to rebrand myself as a being or force of light and positivity, which has been h
  4. GREETINGS REBELLION!! I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself.
  5. Long story short, I'm going to let y'all decide my comfort zone breakers. What do you think would be just crazy for me to do? Keep in mind, I'm basically a normal fat guy. See my character description (in my signature) for a fuller description. Go nuts with your suggestions, and I'll add them to the list as I see them. It's even better if it's an invite to join you, or if you're inviting yourself to join me (and forcing me to do it). Quests: [Item to do] (User who suggested) [O means To Do, X means done] Go to Camp Nerd Fitness (neomattlac) [X]
  6. Journey! My favourite video game! And in fact the only one I play anymore. Because PRETTY. So yeah, not going to bother working it into my challenge as a theme too hard, but hey, I'm always on a journey so why not And YAY PRETTY: So this journey is about taking care of myself and not letting various obstacles and life in general get me down. It is about taking time to do things I enjoy and giving myself whatever space/time/peace I need to be OK. This will be hard because I also feel like I should be working as much as possible while I still can, but sanity needs to com
  7. I am on my fourth lifetime since High School. From the "He didn't know any better" to the "College in a new land" to the "Might as well join the military" and finally in the "Adulting is weird, and everything is different, and I've become complacent." The current journey has me lost. I cannot pin down why I am going, and indeed I am going no where. Fitness is definitely a key contributor to my happiness over the years, and I can honestly not remember the last time i was this inept physically. I was already on a low road before I broke my tibia and fibula at the ankle. After 8 piec
  8. Hello, i'm not new to NF per se, since i've been on my journey for four weeks now, but I recently fell off the wagon with school starting back up and falling back into my old ways. Mostly the latter has caused the falling off. So I thought I will start again...a restart. I won't to complete something in my life for once, and really feel proud and not care what is thought of me or who knows. That's why i'm here. to find my support and accountability and be the same to fellow rebels. I tried the facebook group, both the lbgtqiaa/male...didn't go to well. So ill try my hand with the forums
  9. Good morning all! I made it here - I have decided to be strong and to commit for once and for all. So here I am. Hi, I'm Veeee! I turned 30 earlier this year, and realised that, for the last 20 years, I was not happy with my body. I had numerous attempts at keeping fit and eating the right things (I'm a pescetarian, carbs have been my best comfort friends for as long as I can remember). I started running two years ago, and completed a 10k in April (12-year-old me still doesn't understand how). However, my body was still chubby and running got a little bit difficult so I trained
  10. "It is time to stop lurking" - Tippeh, 6/9/16 at 9:53pm Well okay I said that a few times before but this time, I mean it I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of recording my "progress" on scraps of paper I end up losing anyways. I'm tired of starting over multiple times and being just as confused as before. I used to do full body HIIT workouts mainly doing calisthenics 2-3 times a week during the start of my college years and I remember just how AMAZING I felt and looked everyday. Then family issues, changing majors, not eating enough, and life happened. Therefore I fell
  11. Huh. So here's how the story goes: My work did a "weight loss challenge" that I was curious about, but not really interested ("I don't go to the gym" I said, and I have family members with previous eating/weight loss disorders, so I don't diet either). Well, a team needed a 5th, so I decided why not and dropped the deposit money for it. I wasn't really worried about my weight, mind, and it's one of those gimmicks where the team that loses the most wins $10K, which I also wasn't going to win, but if it helps other people out, that really is the large motivator for me. Th
  12. Hey guys, So I have had quite a journey up to this point, although I am stuck treading water in an eddy and feel like I am bobbing underwater too often. I have tried to get back into shape since a broken ankle/leg last year and it has been several years of struggling with fitness. I used to be a decent athlete, and all the injuries have piled up and slowed me down considerably. I just picked up 'Level Up Your Life' and so far it has connected with me pretty significantly. I have a lot of things that I need to get organized, and things that I need to change to get bac

  14. Hi, this is my first time on the boards and I'm excited to meet like minded, motivating and positive new peeps. I started my fitness quest after I realized that if I didn't change my ways, my parents were going to have to bury me. I was an uncontrolled diabetic [A1c = 9.2], on insulin and about 3 other meds, using a c-pap at night because my weight was crushing me and cutting off my breathing. I would be so winded after 1 salsa dance that my legs would give out. I was 5'6" and ~252 lbs [114.3 kg]. I am currently going to a supervised diet plan that encompasses not just weight loss but
  15. Good day and welcome! I'm Andrea, science nerd at heart (astrophysics, as you probably read) and I'm on a journey to getting into real good shape! The cliché says theoretical scientists are not at all sporty or active and I'm here to disprove that! Using the scientific method! And bringing out a paper on it! Kidding. I'm just gonna work out and kick some ass. My ultimate goal is to be in damn good shape by the time I graduate (June 2015). I'm currently 138 lbs, 5"2. It's on the edge of ''official overweight'', when relying on BMI, but we all know that's a bit biased, as I work out 4-5 ti
  16. So, since last October (2013) I've been placing health, fitness and well-being as my number one priority after being obese for my 23 years of existence, and suffering from asthma. After a couple or so of half-assed attempts I believed that NF would be the game changer I'd need. The mentality which guided me the vision came from one of Kamb's post (after seeing the awesome Transformer Joe!) "We are complex pieces of machinery". As a tech/product/pc enthusiast, that really stuck with me. "I like getting the most out of my hardware and things, why don't I ever see myself in the same way?" Self-es
  17. Good day, all! I'm Kara. I've been following the fitness emails for a lil' while. I joined out of sheer enthusiasm at the general awesomeness in making exercise pop-culture. But life circumstances have shot me in leg(knee! *runs*) a few too many times now. So Here I am! Online forums are social jump for me, but I'll do my best. I'm hoping that by becoming as active as possible on here, and I can perhaps find people who can offer advice, motivation and encouragement. In time I'll definitely want to return that energy, this seems to be a very honest and caring community. This isn't goin
  18. By making bad choices, dealing with depression, and having the dramatic artistic personality, has rested on me re-committing to a weight loss journey with 110 pounds to go. One week in, I have lost five pounds. I am adopting a semi_ -strict paleo diet (cutting sugars, grains, and dairy) and exercising 3-4 days a week. I am a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of losing 105 more pounds. It's daunting. I'm trying to focus on my short term goal: lose 25 pounds by 2/16. I know my body, and I tend to drop weight very quickly in the beginning. This is, with hard work, a very feasible goal. Any advice?
  19. So this is my first serious attempt at losing weight and getting healthy. I'm hoping that this 6 week challenge will kick start my new healthy life style. I'm 27 years old, 5'8", and weigh 225 lbs. My life time goal is to get the weight off and keep it off, because I have a lot of physical pain that I've had since I was 14 and living without pain is something I'd like to feel again! I plan on changing my diet and becoming more active through things like: tennis, strengthening workouts, paintball, walking, running, hiking, and archery. I also think it would be really fun to be able to wear
  20. Hi! I'm new and have been lurking for a couple weeks. I wasn't sure if I was ready until I tried on my cosplay outfit for comic-con and realized that even though it had only been purchased a month prior, it no longer fit. I have always struggled with my weight. Sometimes I feel like I'm winning the battle, but most of the time I give up after not seeing progress fast enough or falling of the wagon. This time is different. I am no longer thinking of this as a temporary struggle before I can get back to my cupcakes. This is a life change and failure is not an option. My inspiration is below
  21. Khawar

    Here we go!

    Hello my name is khawar and im new to all this but SUPER excited! my goals are for this challenge are: 1) Gym at least 3 times a week The number three may seem like a small number, but i know that i can most likely stick to this and perhaps i might even go more, but im all about small tasks at the moment and consistency. When i do go, the workouts will be intense and fun and will look to challenge and improve after each workout 2) No more soda pops Yes, this is the biggie, my weakness. I love those sugary drinks, but going to replace with loads of water and green tea. Plus with the sum
  22. Oh hey, Nerd Fitness. I'm Shelby, and this is my first post. Do people introduce themselves on these things? Idunno... Okay, I will. Well, I'm 5'10, 180 pounds (as of today) and I'm somewhat athletic. I play volleyball and I swim, I love sports but I'm horrible at them. I play them anyways. I'm pretty much a nerd. 4.65 GPA in the hizzy. Headed to college next year (eeeeppp!) and ready to make some lifelong healthy habits for myself. I'm a Christian, and I'm not trying to make anyone else become a Christian... But this is my thread so I'll write what I want God speaks against unhealthy liv
  23. These are the goals for my first six week challenge. 1. For my first goal I want to be able to do a muscle-up by the end of the six week challenge. I will preform a test at the end of it and post my results. Right now I cannot do more then 10 pull-ups. + 5 STR 2. For my second goal I want to be able to do a handstand-pushup by the end of the six week challenge. I will also preform a test and post my results. Right now I cannot do a handstand. +5 STR 3.
  24. Preferences Preferenceshey there ppl... My name is Ris and I'm continuing my journey of weight loss and fitness. I'm a self described science nerd, and pre-service teacher/grad student. Here's my story: I was always an active kid and I considered myself an athlete for many years. My sports were (are?) figure skating, dance, rowing, and soccer. My senior year in HS I was about 135lb. Mostly I fell off with these sports when I went to college. I had a very rigorous program and didn't adjust well to feeding myself away at school or make time for exercise. I gained about 20 lbs. in coll
  25. Well, after that melodramatic title, I can only imagine what you must be expecting from this post. ALAS! This shall be anticlimactic! I am at an interesting point in my life. I am 25 years old, 5'8" tall, female, a university student (Bachelor's of Science in Biology;Pre-Med), and an avid metal head. Five years ago,I weighed 320lbs. Today, I weigh ~185lbs. (read* I have lost 135lbs). This is all through diet, as I have always been fairly active. My waist measurement used to be 48 inches, and is now 33 inches. that is JUST my waist, folks... -15 inches. Previous body fat = above 45% (doctor
