  1. I was struggling to think of a theme for this challenge - in NF of yesteryear, I loved doing fun, fannish challenges, usually with complex spreadsheets and real-life roleplaying. Last challenge, I picked a theme that felt somewhat interesting, but it didn't really reflect my goals and I didn't feel like I engaged with it aside from the goal post. As I put my goals together this week, hemmed and hawed over theme options, thought about roadblocks from last challenge, I realized... maybe I don't need a "theme." Maybe this month is just about simplifying and streamlining. So that's where we are.
  2. What a weird year! I'm feeling kind of ambivalent about Christmas this year, but I'm excited about New Year's. I don't have some kind of Pollyanna thing about everything being better after 2020 is over. I just really love the hope and promise of the New Year holiday. It's probably my favorite night/day of the year. I've got a couple goals for this mini challenge but will probably add some more...or maybe not. 1. PUSH-UP challenge! A couple friends and I made our own push-up challenge that runs from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The idea is you do as many as you can in one set on Tha
  3. Welcome to the Scouts Camp! Ever on the move, our camp has relocated from the mountains into the wilds of the jungle farther down the river of NerdFitnessLandia What we will find as we explore this year? What mysteries lie out in the world beyond our camp? Welcome to 2018 ... here's to the future!
  4. Alright NERDS Welcome to the NerdFitness (unofficial) Santa Sleigh 5K 2018! Now, I know like four of us in the Scout Guild but don't be a Grinch! Let's do a 5K... a lowly 3.1 mile run over the holiday! You non-Scouts can join in if you'd like So ... Rules! I mean ... I guess you could walk, job, run/walk too - heck you can do it outside You could do it inside 3 As long as you do it between Dec 24th and January 2nd Now if you'd like you can post a
  5. Welcome to the Scouts Camp! Welcome lords and ladies! A new year means a new campsite to rest our feet, pull up a log and sit a while! Come! Let us talk of the challenges to come and those that have passed.
  6. Hey y'all! I'm back after (another) hiatus. The short story: I had a year-long internship that was pretty rough in a lot of ways (you can read the sordid story of how I used my challenge back in January to help survive a bad several months' worth of depression), and went until I returned to my grad program this past August. I took a shot at getting another challenge going after that, but I didn't really have the mental or emotional steam to do another once my life had started to get more normal again. August, I made it back to school. I'd been exercising a bit throughout t
  7. The scouts of Nerd Fitness have set up a rough camp on outskirts of the savage lands. This area is filled now with demons, devils, orcs, goblins, mystical beasts, and other creatures after the outbreak late in the year last. You've just come from the more hospitable land to the North. Camp is not quiet as people seem to be coming and going quickly. A few fellow scouts you know wave to you, before you are stopped by a lean elf who looks you over, "I believe you should go see the scout leader, he said to send you his way as soon as you came into camp." Not one to leave th
  8. Hi all! I'm throwing myself back into this with a vengeance. My challenge for this month is pretty simple : get back up to half marathon distance on my long runs. 23rd 10km 30th 15km 7th 17km 14th 15km (race) 21st 21km (I know this is after the deadline, but Sunday is runday, not Saturday hah) obviously this one ain't for beginners but for runners who have simply got a bit lazy about their longer runs lol. Anyone with me?
  9. Welcome to the Scouts Tavern! After a long day of scoutery it is nice to sit down with a couple of friends and share tales and news of our adventures. Everyone is welcome at the Tavern as long as you have a tale to spin and or song to sing.
  10. welcome Scouts ! I'm all out of fancy gifs for we're going simple. The Houses of Hogarts are Gryffindor - values the virtues of courage, bravery and determination Hufflepuff - values hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty Ravenclaw - values intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit Slytherin - values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness I'll post what each house's mini on Monday/Tuesday of that week, and you pick which house you want to participate in ... its 4 weeks of challenge so you can go through all 4 house
  11. I seem to be stuck in a cycle of respawn after respawn. I really need to get my life together. Things have been going well, but were super stressful. I have finally reached a point where I should be able to get things back under control. I graduated from LSU with my MLIS on August 5th. I am getting married Sunday, September 18th to a really great guy that I adore. He makes up for all my worst weaknesses and supports me in all that I do. My job is okay. It can still be stressful at times, and I have applied at two other places that I'd like to work at. I'm getting along well with the kids, fo

  13. Sora.2

    Sora's Shot

    Hello all! It's been quite some time since I was last part of the scouts or the NF community. You may remember me from my previous account, username "Sora". I made a post HERE yesterday detailing my absence and change of account. Regardless, I'm back, and that's what's important! Part of the reason I'm starting this challenge a few days late is my account troubles, but I figure better late than never. So Let's Go! This Summer, I'm completing an internship in Japan, near Kyoto. Some of you may remember my challenges from the past that led up to my first trip to Japan, and I'm really ha
  14. So the third challenge of the year has come and gone ... how'd we do scouts?
  15. Bee

    Bee Laces Up

    I'm Bee! For the past six months I've been focusing on my health and wellness through nutrition and mindfulness. Over the course of 3 years I gained about 30 pounds and struggled significantly with depression, anxiety, and accumulating health issues. After many failed attempts at restrictive diets and all-or-nothing workout regimes, I finally found that taking a simplistic approach toward changing my eating habits a little bit at a time allowed me to develop a greater awareness and appreciation of what I put in my body. I also dug deep into the core of my compulsive overeating and began to
  16. Quest 1 Run every week No distance goals here just keep moving. I'm going to keep my long runs happening with some mid week runs added to keep my feet going. 4 weeks = 4 runs! 4+ runs A +3 Sta,+2 Con 3 runs B +2 Sta,+2 Con <3 run F Quest 2 Keep swinging Kettle bells I've signed up for the next session of 626 (Six weeks To a Six Pack) which is a heavy kettle bell program with my boot camp BUT it doesn't start till mid-challenge so I'll be doing my best to keep swinging my bells till then. 1 KB + TRX workout / week 8 workouts A +3 Str 6-7 workouts B +2 Str <6 workouts F Ques
  17. ...hopefully! Just checking in to reserve my slot. My main goals for the 6wc are to run a little bit faster and increase my maximum distance from 8km to 10km. I will update my goals tomorrow when I've formulated a plan. I'm a little bit behind.
  18. For each week of this challenge, you will decide to make one healthier diet option. These will cumulate over the challenge so hopefully your diet will slightly healthier by keeping all six options. It can be easy to make a single small change at a time and the cumulative affect of several small changes can make a very nice impact. Possible ideas for a healthier diet option is to remove a certain non-nutritional food or add some quite nutritious food. For something like a nasty soda habit your option can be just to remove a portion of the soda intake instead of trying to remove it all at o
  19. Hello fellow recruits! It's CloneClubber Reboot. I am CloneClubber's successful clone. The one that completes things and doesn't fail at challenges. I am pretty much more awesome than that other one. Here are my challenge Quests and Goals. Watch me succeed. Main Quest: Run the Jingle Bell 5K in Seattle December 13th 2015. Goals: 1. Run 4 times a week and do yoga/swim once a week either at the gym, home, or outside. A= workout 5 times B= workout 4 times C= workout 3 times 2. Eat a big salad for lunch with a side and water. No soda. A= 7-6 salads B= 5-4 salads C= 3-2 salads 3. Prepare m
  20. So it's my third 6WC. I managed to complete both far better than I expected but this does mean that I've set the bar high! My biggest failure was that I didn't check in here enough. Goal 1: "I see. For one moment, I thought you were running to help her. But no... not after my warnings, that WOULD be stupid!" as with previous 6WCs, my first goal is running based. Having got a 5km PB of 33:22 on the final day of the last 6WC, I have decided to enter a 10km. It's until the end of November but I need to train for it. I will run three times a week. Once with my running group, one 5km and one 5
  21. Since October 21, 2015 we’ll have flying cars and hoverboards, I thought a Back to the Future themed challenge would be fun. So, Great Scott my 11th challenge is now on! Main Quest To live a healthy and balanced life by exercising and trying to eat healthy. My motivation I've successfully dropped weight by counting calories so my diet will mostly be staying the same with 1200 calories per day M-F and then blow meals on the weekends. I've managed to put on some muscle in an effort to become stronger by weightlifting and I’ve discovered that I love lifting heavy things! However, since
  22. With a moderately successful recruit challenge under my belt, I’m ready to join my kind. Scouts, I’m Theophilus. I come to you an inveterate sloth with a penchant for running, looking to transpose the adjectives. After an eight-year hiatus, I began training in July 2015 for a half marathon in January 2016. My reach goal is to beat my 2008 time (8:16 pace). Right now I’m in the 9-10 min. pace on my runs, so it’s time to accelerate. Main Quest: Complete the 2016 Phoenix Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon at 8:15 min/mile pace or better Quest 1: Accelerate Pace Run at least four times per w
  23. Boston: The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Scout Gunslinger_25. His eight-week mission: to explore strange new running routes; to seek out a healthier life and new friends; to boldly go where no man (at least not him) has gone before. Howdy all! I'm eager to get going on the next challenge after wrapping up my recruit challenge. There's a lot of nice folks on here and everyone is really supportive! I hope you're prepared for a Star Trek/running themed challenge. I beg forgiveness in advance, but I will definitely be mixing TNG with the Original Series. Long story short
  24. I've arrived in Scouts, which is strange. When I started my recruit level 6WC I thought I'd end up being in Adventurers, I was a slow and aimless journey into getting fit. Doing a bit of everything but not loving anything. My main quest is to survive the inevitable zombie apocalypse, and body isn't ready yet, it's better than it was two months ago but there's room to improve. I haven't quite decided on my goals for this challenge. However, one will be running focused. On June 1st I started running. I joined a beginner's running group. Running is the best thing ever. Today I ran 2.5km,
  25. Hi there, I'm Wibble! I was getting bored on my Summer away from uni and have fortuitously checked this site just as a new 6 week challenge was starting so I thought I'd do my second one. The last challenge I did was last year sometime and I was very ambitious and disciplined with doing my little workout routines; anyway this time I just want some slight internet accountability with some vague goals - inspired by the Mario triathlon which I looove. By the end of my challenge I want to: Run 5km - by going for a run at least 3x per weekCycle 10km - by cycling at least once a weekImprove my core
