  1. After so many years of doing variations on the same theme, this challenge is finally going to be something new for me. All of my time with NF thus far has been me focused on meeting the physical requirements for a job with the police. My belief in that possibility has waxed and waned over the years, but that was always my main goal. As I've gotten older, I've felt growing pressure to get my life going (I've been working low paying, dead-end jobs for over 20 years, and been living in my parents' basement for most of that time, and I'd like to be a real adult someday). That pressure
  2. Background My name is aquadwayne (formerly tgsmith489, but I figured it was time for a change) and I have been active on the nerdfitness forums off and on for 6 years or so. I have done several challenges in that time and lost a lot of weight. I started in 2014 at ~350lbs then over the course of a year, got down to ~230lbs through IIFYM and lifting. During my lifting, I got a bad case of fuckarounditis and changed programs constantly and as a result didn't make much progress in terms of strength. My diet was solid during the week, but weekly cheat meals turned into weekly cheat weekends a
  3. Hello, all! I was on here a long while ago working on my fitness and am returning several years later (and several years older - welp!) from an entirely different country and with completely different goals, ready to work on myself again! 😄 Back then I was in my late teens and concentrated heavily on cardio and studying to great success, but I also had far less to contend with back then. I'm quite a changed person now, with a job I love in a city in England, an intolerance to lactose that I was free of as a youngster (boo), and an only slightly detrimental work ethic (
  4. Overall, I didn't feel like I made a tonne of progress during my 1/2 challenge. Life just keeps beating me down, so I do feel ok about the fact I didn't make reverse progress. This challenge is going to be simple and straightforward, nothing outside of my comfort zone for now. I really just need to focus on reestablishing habits, in this case, the habit of exercise. Goal #1 ~ Show up for gym appointments (3x/week) While it makes being flexible kinda hard, the fact that I have to schedule gym appointments is probably good for me. Generally, if left to my own devices, I'l
  5. Woah I am loving the new challenge forum set-up (multiclassing ftw!). So hey, I'm Gar. Been on and off the forums since 2012, most active during 2017. Had a bit of a "treading water" hiatus from end 2018 through mid-2020 but ready to respawn with baby steps. Build a Consistent Schedule: 1) Weeknight - In Bed by 22:30; Out of bed by 06:30 (adjustment for Week 4 --> 22:00 bedtime. 5:50 wake up) 2) Weekend - In bed by 00:00; Out of bed by 09:00 3) 20 mins of movement Walking in my neighborhood counts as 1/2 credit towards time - because daily do
  6. I'm respawning after several years. I lifted and tracked macros 6 years ago and lost 120lbs. Since then, I've stopped tracking, lifting, and worrying about my health. I've had job changes, got married, had a baby, lost a grandfather, and had COVID to contend with. My grandpa died in February and I was very close with him. He is the first person I've been close with to die, so it caused me to re-evaluate a lot of things in my life. His health had been deteriorating for the past couple of years with his lungs working less and less, though he also had a history of heart problems (with a heart att
  7. Let me know if I've flubbed this opening, the forum has changed a touch in the hot second since I posted outside of anything but my Battle Log ( and even that was intermittent at best ). But yes! I'm here, crash landing, thumbs up outside the crater hole I've left in the front yard. Half-way through a challenge, in the midst of changing things, but when aren't things changing and challenging? My final essay is due on Friday (3k, 99% unwritten), which is mad to think about. I joined the forums when I was starting this uni business (in philosophy), and I'm less than a week off f
  8. Acute systems failure due to known glitches with the 202.0 program. Please reboot your system and apply the 202.1 patch. (More details on 202.0 crash here) So far, the 202.1 patch & update is working much better on my end - I'm halfway through a 30 days of yoga series (which is probably the longest I've continued a workout series in years), am back on a 4*10hr shift schedule which is making food prep much easier for me to handle, and I got myself a Fitbit which is a very bossy little helper that also helps keep me on track. So now that last month didn't (entirely) suck, ti
  9. So I've been on hiatus for most of a year for a variety of reasons (good and bad). But it's time for a respawn, so I'm reaching out again to the support networks I have (the forums here, Connect on the WeightWatchers app, etc) to try and maintain accountability and get regular feedback on things. Yet to do: re-write my Life at Level 50 mission statement/goals (Work changed, and with it, the driving need to drown my frustrations in food and shopping). The previous battle log is here, if anyone wants to visit the unpleasant swamp of the past: https://rebellion.nerdfit
  10. Defining's Doggone Deeds | Ch. 1 AKA. Defining Does it Again, respawn 2021 Complete failure to reach literally any goal for 2020 (and no, I can't blame COVID for that since my lifestyle was more or less unaffected by the changes); respawn for 2021? Tasks for the 1st challenge of the year: - wake up with sun salutation (after feeding the dogs and letting them out to pee) - eat within 1hr of waking up - fill a 1L water bottle and consume every day - create new meal plan & grocery list for daily protein & veg goals - walk for at least 30m
  11. Hey all, so we all know last year was a doozy for basically everyone. When it started to seem like it calmed down a bit in late spring / early summer, I finally decided to step in the ring with 2020 and try to prioritize my mental and physical health. And 2020 knocked me flat on my ass. My family knew early in the year that dad was dying, but then when his decline came in October / November it was still slow and agonizing. He passed the week before Thanksgiving, then work took back my life until the week before Christmas when we had his funeral, and those of
  12. AIM: To be strong enough for adventuring as soon as it's safe. And by adventuring I mean leaving this 5 mile stretch of coast and visiting friends & a museum or art gallery or something. GOALS: Core strength for travel, walking, & carrying luggage. (with partially healed chronic back problem.) Specifically: - can sit for 3 hours without spasming - can walk for an hour on easy terrain - can carry rucksack & kit in that time Mood Boosting: I'd like my magic back please. I've given myself permission to play with fun things wi
  13. Hi there. Been a hot minute. Time to get myself in order. 2020 was a bit whacky (for us as it has been for so many others), but I managed to square away some things which have been on my “to do” list forevvvvver. The good: graduated from my Masters, deadlifted 110kg, and secured full time, ongoing, well paid work. Mr completed his first year of TAFE, and is now working for a forge as a professional (apprentice) blacksmith. Huzzah! The bad: Unfortunately, we got in the very bad not good habit of ordering as much delivery food as we wanted (high score for that fail is a tie betw
  14. All is quiet. A soft wind rustles the leaves of the forest. A young woman is crouched high in a tree, wrapped in a green cloak. Her eyes are trained on her target, several yards away. She grips the handles of her swords as her pointer and middle fingers poise themselves on the triggers of the ODM gear. The cloak stirs slightly with her breaths. They are even. She's working hard to keep them that way. The time has come. She takes a deep breath and leaps from the branch, hooks shooting from the holsters on her waist. They bury themselves deep in the wood of an adjacent tree and she swi
  15. It's been a few years, Rebels. In that time I've gained 100lbs, lost multiple jobs, moved back home, and have had my depression go haywire. Now it's time to get things back in order. But first, we need to strengthen the stronghold. \ Let's make it simple. Tracking my meals, Making small weekly goals for myself Working out with my weights at home and making the ultimate goal of bettering my health.
  16. 1. Walk at least 15 min a day on the treadmill 2. Go up and down the stairs to the basement at least once a day 3. Journal in this thread as a mindfulness exercise It has been a year. A heck of a year. After all my good intentions at the start of last year I find myself respawning again, but it is what it is. So, teaspoons move mountains, I know this, I've done this-- time to do it again! I'm actually a bit pre-set for success as I'm actually on week 4 of a renewed treadmill gaming habit, so I have that going for me for #1. I've been doing some decluttering an
  17. So, here we are again. I should be sleeping, but I couldn't. I have let my last three challenges or so trail into the oblivion due to lots of different things. But mostly sloth. All things considered, 2020 was "good." My relationship survived, and even thrived in many ways thanks to extra time to be together; I taught in every different conceivable mode (virtual, in person, hybrid, synchronous, asynchronous, on zoom and in person at the same time) and only contemplated throwing in the towel a few times; both of us kept our jobs, and my family and his family are all healthy.
  18. Hello! I joined NF back in 2017, and really got into the Academy. It was a lot of fun, and I made some progress. I wasn't really active here, but lurked a lot. As time wore on, I also found myself re-spawning a lot. I changed my goals. I changed my name and character. I started over and quit a couple times. I moved on to other programs. Covid came. I was teaching students from home in the spring, and I remembered enjoying the NF Academy so I came back here and respawned. But I never did anything with that respawn. The Academy was still interesting, but too much work on
  19. So. Here I am. Respawning... Again. The last time I posted on here was almost exactly a year ago. December 31, 2019. Another respawn. I was about to start a new job, I was committed to getting healthy and I thought I'd follow through this time. I was excited. Determined. Obviously that didn't happen. Boo hoo. Why, oh why, am I not surprised? This has been my pattern for years. I start something and never finish. Big whoop. This'll sound exactly the same, I'm going to start over and commit, blah blah blah. So why should I even bother? I
  20. So there I was in the wasteland, with like 2 HP left, and I keep getting murked by small critters that I've haven't been able to get any momentum going. Disappeared since challenge #89, and since then I've been sleeping on the couch because of water damage and mold infestation and the insurance agency being an insurance agency. The only reason I'm able to keep it together is I swallowed my pride and borrowed a large amount of money from my mother again because nodody will subscribe to my OnlyFans. Me trying my best every day: Anyway, I'm just here to get starte
  21. I had a bad day. I feel like I suck at my work. I don't know why I feel like this these days. * sigh Oh well... Hello to you! I am LucentFrost, and 443 days has passed since I joined the Rebellion. My last challenge was last October 2016, and I didn't get to report since then. Now, I want to be an active member and do my duty to level up my life everyday. Doing the challenges and hanging out in the forums were one of the many best things that has happened to my life last year. But at my current state, I forgot why I started this journey in the first place. I just
  22. "The Band!" "The Band?" "The Band..." "The BAND!" Jesus H Tap Dancing Christ, I have seen the light! We're putting the band back together! It's been way too long, so @Endor and I are brushing off our running shoes (or just feet as it were) and getting back into our pre-COVID shapes. For me, this means forming proper habits again: Exercise every day. It can be 5 minutes, or an hour, but the goal is to get my heart rate up and move some muscle every single day. I'm tracking this with Habit Hub, and am
  23. BODY I just realized how out-of-shape I am when I was out of breath I was while I was cutting weeds in the yard. I almost passed out from the heat after mowing the lawn the other day, and I have to deal with what reminds me of the beginnings of an asthma attack from my youth. This is bad. I also recently did blood tests, and I have a horrendous cholesterol profile (high LDL, low HDL), high liver enzymes, terrible kidney health, constant borderline hypertension, and total Testosterone of like 300. Though it's tempting to "hack" my T levels to get teh gainz, I'm thinking the best way wou
  24. I know. Long time no see. *sigh* The tl;dr version is that I've spent the last 1.5 years not working out much aside from tons of walking, gaining weight (not the good kind), and feeling fatigued. Also, the whole family has been in a funk. So, thanks to covid and my husband getting 100% telecommute, we moved across the country 1.5 weeks ago. Our pod full of stuff arrives tomorrow! I'm hoping that a new location means a new start and a new lease on life. I'm also excited about the new Dune movies coming out. I'm a huge fan of the books and loved the Dune and Children of Dun
  25. It's a bit of a late start, but I'm here. I participated a few years back, but life got in the way and I stopped. I got sick. Thought I was getting better. Wasn't. Now I'm even worse off. Long story short: I suffer from iron deficient anemia. Last year I had to get IV iron to try to get me to reasonable levels. Turns out I'm allergic to IV iron. However, before the allergy showed itself we did manages to get enough iron into my system to put me at the lowest part of normal. Even with the iron in my system the side effects of low iron remained, depression, constant exhaustion, memor
