  1. Main Goal I've had a bad 2020. (I know I'm not alone, Social Media seems to believe 2020 should be cancelled like a bad sitcom and also like every race I signed up for so far this year.) I am out of shape. My arthritis is flaring. My fiance went to Florida for a scheduled six weeks this winter to escape the cold, and then due to COVID-19 restrictions and the fact that TSA agents at the airport I would have flown into to retrieve her were testing positive for COVID, wound up staying there for three months. She's now been back a month and things are... tense.
  2. "Suiting up" Hiya, guys! Here's my challenge for the next four weeks! I'm really excited to check in and update as and when I can, and to keep up to tabs on other peoples'! I'm a workaholic and often let my dedication to my job override basic things like eating, sleeping and more. My main goals this month are going to be to navigate my new promotion (yay! Lets nerf this ♡✧ Mission 1: "Check me out, securing the point!" Navigate the first four weeks of my promotion at work ♡ Have quiet TLC time at least x3 work-nights a week. This could be as sm
  3. Hiya, guys! ^-^ I was here years ago (I wish I remembered my username but sadly, I don't!) and then had some health issues that put a halt on a lot. Just on the absolute off-chance that anybody I did know comes across this, I was put out of commission (and well, into hospital) due to unmanageable seizures and the chronic pain that resulted. Its been a while and not only am I back in tip-top shape again (between treatment, surgeries and more!) but I've since moved to England and have a steady career (in the nerdy field! Ay!) I swear, how time flies. I remembered this place a few we

  5. Howdy, My name is Emrys. I'm a 27 year old rebel and brand new to the world of weightlifting. I've spent a long time playing the on-again-off-again game with working out and I want to make it stick this time. I've finally accepted that I absolutely loathe cardio and prefer to get down with strength training. I found NF through furious Google searches and joined because I'm looking to add some structure, get more committed to my fitness, see some gains, and make some friends! First 4 WEEK CHALLENGE: GOAL 1: Diet. I'm a big time snacker so I'm trying to cut down my
  6. I'm feeling good! So I'm sticking with my 6 rules from the previous challenge. I'm ramping things up a little though! 1. No carby meals 2. 1 ‘sweet’ treat a week 3. 8000 steps a day! (This worked out really well last time, greatly increasing my daily average) 4. W/O x 3 / 1 x Run / Yoga x3 a week (the better weather is making me feel much more up for morning runs! Also I'm starting a new work out routine, which is more challenging than before! Levelling up! Pretty much I'm aiming to be active everyday, even if its just a 15 mins of yoga in the morning)
  7. Time for my first challenge! There are many things I want to do (and ultimately I want to become a Druid-Adventurer fusion), but here are four goals for the next four weeks: Nutrition: Track what I eat every day Limit alcohol consumption to the weekend Fitness: Go for a 10-minute walk every day Leveling Up Life: Meditate every day
  8. Hey, to everyone here. As the progress one I am trying to maintain the focus on things that I tried to do in the past but failed a see through to the end. One of those things is my health and focus on journey to become a better version of myself. With that being said I am ready to be more focused on this challenge than before. So here are my Quest to complete during the next 4 weeks: Fitness/Health Quest Only have dessert one per week. I have realized that over the past few years I have indulged to much at work and with friend. Which has lead me to not work o
  9. Time for a re-spawn! I've started with NF academy from square one and this time I won't get distracted after week 3! I'm setting a target to hit. My goals are simple: Body Lose 10 lbs Mind Create a storyboard portfolio Spirit Create, and stick to, an evening and morning routine that works for me Learn to mediate, practice daily I'm taking it slow this time, following the NF academy weekly missions, starting from week 1. Week 1 Review:
  10. 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
  11. Down We Go... So after another derailed 4WC (I won't even begin to list the reasons it went off track*), I'm late to the next one! But I'm keeping it simply. I've been on top of tracking my food, and I've been trying out intermittent fasting. Its going better for me than last (last time I felt myself feeling dizzy and sick in the afternoons and just before lunch), but I've found that cutting down on my coffee intake helps this a lot! Like before, I'm using financial incentive. As the last challenge didn't play out, the £30 I put aside is still living in an
  12. Hi all. I totally suck at talking about myself etc but anyway here goes. Last year I was diagnosed with stage 3 emphysema..on my birthday....happy joy. I want to delay stage four as long as possible, I prefer to hold on to the dream that I am immortal lol Thanks to steroids I put on 11kgs. Ive lost 5 kgs. Oh yeah Im from New Zealand and we use kilos not pounds...sorry about that. I live in a small town that has very few shops and no gyms. DIET: Okay my four goals for this challenge are to eat steak at least once this week. ( I'm an omni th
  13. Hey! My names Blethan, and unfortunely you've wandered into what is likely to be a sea of my ramblings. I was a NF member many moons ago, but unfortunately the real world hit me hard after graduating Uni, and things have started slip. So now I'm back! GOAL UPDATE 22.10.17: Look Good! Lose 8lbs. -I've calculated that I currently have a body fat percentage of 27%. I would like this to drop to 21 % (I'm pretty new to this, so let me know if this is ridiculous). With these percentages I'm currently carrying 37.5 lbs of fat and need to lose 8.3 lbs
  14. Time for challenge number 2! TLC - Tables, Ladders and Chairs (well… Walls, Tables and Chairs…) I've had a little re-jig of my main goals, I think it's important to reflect and adapt. You can find an overview of them HERE The challenges below feed into these bigger GOALS! Look Good! (Big goal; Lose 8 lbs) Do 10 full floor push-ups! -Sounds daft I know! But I cannot do full push-ups. I never have been able to! But after reading a great thread on this forum (I'll find the link) I've formulated a plan to get there. So this challenge is; Start with the WALL
  15. Hey guys, Better late than never I always say! While yesterday threw a slew of distractions at me I got a perfect window today to post my second challenge and my first one in the Rebel group. For those of you who don't know me, I'm Ratynda and where my last challenge focused on a broad group of topics meant to get me to broaden my thoughts towards new opportunities, this one will hold a lens to my progress in what I've established and measure out progress in a more tangible way. As I got to know myself better, I started to realize what motivates me and what drains me, and this mont
  16. Hi. So, I thought I'd see how this works and if it'll work for me. I do love lists. A little about me, I started exercising in May, slowly increasing in intensity and slowly trying to stick to a schedule. I have already seen some progress - I have gotten stronger and have seen some definition, and this is mainly my legs and my core, with some on my arms but not a lot. I'm doing this because I like feeling strong and I like being physically capable, being somewhat weak all my life both because of lifestyle and genetics. My long term goals are: - Increase muscle mass without lo
  17. Hey guys! For those of you whom I did not meet in my introduction post, I'm Ratynda. I'm a recent college graduate (almost a year now! ) and adult life has given me the opportunity to re-evaluate a lot of perspectives I had in college and even before. Historically, I settled for the middle road and only kept a normal amount of effort up in school, work, relationships, and exercise. With this new opportunity, I want to turbo-charge my efforts in developing myself in these areas and more. I've been particularly stressed lately about my career path, as I never really was able to bring
  18. I have a lot going on right now and trying to put my health first. Which can become difficult when you are so not used to doing so. But anyway so far I have some ups and downs with the challenges. I also know that I have a long way to go to get were I want to be. With that being said. Here are my goals for this challenge. Fitness/ Diet goals: Working out a least once a week Drinking 1 pint of water before each meal to see if I am hungry Stop drinking coffee (well the way that I drink it is really bad for me) Level Up goal. Work on my passion project at l
  19. Heyyyyyy everyone!! This is a respawn for the accountability factor. I need to check in at least weekly to log my progress for this Challenge round. I did not do this last round as it would have been a horrible anxiety-stress trigger in the middle of so much life-crap going on, so I quietly did a re-run of my previous goals in a maintenance round. Spoiler Alert, the last 5 weeks had a lot of Crap... and Not Crap. This week is a mindset week and then I will be creating some kind of manageable goal list for this challenge. ENCOURAGEMENT IN TH
  20. My last challenge was kind of a disaster, but as it was said in Batman Begins, "Why do we fall?" I think this challenge is going to be more focused on getting into a groove. I also think that I wasn't really being active on this forum and utilizing the community for support. The idea of an alternative meal prep was also pretty bad because I underestimated my laziness. So anyway, here are my new goals: Fitness Goals 1. Improve Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu has been described as being a marathon, not a sprint. Taking this into account, I've decided to set
  21. So apparently I am almost two weeks late to the party. Lol. However, I plan on keeping this challenge going into the summer break, so that should make up for my tardiness. I've started a challenge or two in the passed. However, I maybe lasted three to four days tops, so I still feel like a complete newbie going into this. I know that one of the problems I had, other than my lack of consistency, was that I set too many daily tasks for myself. I was bound to give up before I even started. But no not this time.... This time I'm making things really simple f
  22. Despite being disappointed by my last challenge performance, overall I've made some great life changes, so I've decided this challenge is going to be more about setting myself up for success and holding on to the habits I've been developing thru the last couple challenges. Quest #1 - Food Avoid eating a giant bowl of carbs as a meal Vegetables or fruit with every meal Healthy snacks (yogurt, nuts) instead of garbage snacks (CHIPS CHIPS CHIPS) Quest #2 - Exercise Do physical activity at least once a week (gardening totally counts) Quest
  23. FOR ALL YOU REBELS OUT THERE! New. Young. Old. Fit. Needing a restart or a little push? From any guild or no guild? Welcome all! I know some of you are respawning, but feel free to read up on things that might have changed while you were out fighting your demons (and you're succeeding!) Maybe you just don't want to choose a guild yet, which is great, and we can encourage each other together! If you are new to Nerd Fitness, the forums, or the concept of challenges, then welcome! Here is the path you should tak
  24. Ohai! My name is Haze and I'm from a tiny island most people can't find on a map... in Canada.. where it's cold... But I'm not currently living there, and am in China where I'm currently making a living teaching English! Not what I expected to be doing with a bachelor of psychology, but meh. I'm a new teacher so still learning the ropes but that's one thing I really love to do: Learn! I've never been a very fit or active person. I was a chubby kid, bullied for being chubby even though there were other kids in my grade bigger than me. I did become quite smal
  25. Kuros, through passed down stories that have become nothing more than legend, is known to most as the "Knight Warrior of the Books of Excalibur," but few would know it upon meeting this unassuming hero. Less bulky warrior and more agile ranger, with a mind sharper than any blade (except Brightsword, of course), Kuros is a servant of light, far more humble than the picture this old keeper of lore will paint for you. Always cloaked and seldom seen, it would be easy to mistake him for an assassin (a poor one at that if he is indeed seen), or a scout. Alas, this is not the case. Jack of all trades
