  1. So here we are, after an absence of years, I have come home to where most of it began. Since last treading these boards, we have had success and failure, death and new life, summer, winter, autumn and spring, lost religion found a new one, and just recently cut people from my life who although family were extremely toxic. I am back in here to find my motivation, my mojo, my tribe. I have signed up for my 3rd novice powerlifting meet and need to find some like minded people, as there is no one remotely close in physical proximity that lifts like I did/do/want to. To new beginnings an
  2. ShadowSilk's goals for this Challenge: 1. Stick to the MFP plan 2. Walk for 20 minutes a day, five days a week 3. Do the strength training plan Shaar made for me 3x a week 4. Get back to knitting. I like knitting. 5. Write 500 to 1,000 words a week on any one of my multiple sundry projects -- it doesn't matter whether it's OW or FF, just WRITE. 6. Do my affirmations EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
  3. Ummmmmm ..... sooooooo ..... last challenge is over??? I kinda lost 11 days there while I was away, aaaaaaaand forgot that challenge was one of the reasons I was keeping (slack ass as it were) contact with my friends. This cycle looks to be little better galavanting-wize. I'm theoretically off to Abu Dhabi next week (leave it to DH's job to approve travel at the very last minute possible), and Challenge ends the day after I get back from DH's first real vacation since the move - in Sri Lanka. So. Probably won't be starting any lofty fitness p
  4. Whoa! What? Who is this rebel tucking her tail and returning to the rebellion? Oh, it's Angela The Geek! Holy crap, guys... It's been like a really, really long time. It's been over a year since I started and didn't finish a challenge. Well, I'm back! And lots of stuff has happened in the time that I've been gone. Where to start... 1. I spent most of 2016 going in and out of the Emergency Room and Hospital. I went to the ER over 25 times in 2016, and added a few more times in 2017 to get up to a whopping 32 ER visits. It impacted my training
  5. I'm not looking or feeling so good right now. I'll have to fight may way through this. - WhiteHairedWolf I totally could have completed my first challenge, which I attempted back in January, but I didn't. That was then, this is now. Meal planning - stick to a healthier diet for the entirety of the challenge, with planned meals for work and healthier snacks. Scoring: Two cheat meals or less per week = 100xp; Three = 70xp; Four = 50xp. Exercise - do more than four rowing sessions of 20m each per week for the entirety of the challenge. Scoring: More than four
  6. Three years ago I came to this place, I was aspiring monk, struggling with my diet and unable to keep training routine. And so my adventure with this place begun, you guys gave me amazing support and I was slowly making progress. My biggest motivation was my best friend and loyal companion - Zorion. Everything was going fine, I was reaching my goals, I was proud of myself and the progress I made. And then Zorion died. He died suddenly, when he was running in my garden he suddenly yelped and fall down. By the time I reached him, he was gone. He was only two years old, al
  7. Sigh... I have been away from the forums for quite awhile now... and tried to return several times already. I had my son in February and I have really struggled so far to do much of anything other than caring for a baby, the occasional walks or hikes, and some dog training. Kiddo is 6 months now, and I'm really trying hard to get diet back in order and I'm going to start using the gym daycare to start lifting again. Lifted today for the first time in probably closing in on a year. Pregnancy was really exhausting for me and I didn't manage to keep up lifting as I had always intended. It w
  8. Hi guys! When I was in my first year in grad school 2013, I started challenges and lost a good 20 pounds. However, between the stresses of school, family, back injuries and dealing with anxiety, I got thrown off track. Boo. But now I'm back! And I'm trying to let it stick for real this time. So let's go! Diet Log my food intake every day using My Fitness Pal (I'm jazzyrags if you want to follow me there ) Eat dinner before 6pm 5 times a week Fitness Walk 30 minutes a day 30 minutes of

    RES: Start Again

    Okay, the bitch is back...seriously this time! Last challenge I moved on day one, in an RV that shall forever be known as "The Money Pit", back to where I have always considered to be "home", but unfortunately the location we originally found came with it's own game of "fireworks or gunshots?" so we had to find somewhere else to park, which is not as easy as it sounds if you need it long term! I also had to find a job, figure out bills with all the unexpected expenses that have come up in the last month, and not kill my wife in the process (which is the real challenge for me right
  10. I am... Back? ... Yeah! I am back. =D Gods i have been bad. Last challenge I attempted was July? Things got... hectic. Death int he family, life blew up. Things getting crazy... So starting over.. again, 1 goal at a time. Well, Let's rename that to habit. 1 Habit at a time. I am gonna start with food. I am bad with food. Need to get better with food. SO! With that said, my habit to build: I will eat only 7 pieces of hardcandy a day. I purchased two bags of caramels to stash in my drawer at work for those I want to suck on something fo
  11. Well, I guess it's confession time~ (It's going to be a long one as I'm going to be sorting out everything as I type it mind's been going in circles lately, I swear) Almost a whole year ago I joined the Academy and was so thrilled to be a part of this community. I found a trail by my apartment and started running. On days I didn't run I made sure to get outside and walk - either on the running trail or just around the neighborhood. Occasionally a friend joined me on my run or I worked out with a few friends at the gym and I even started learning some self defense. Th
  12. Like a Phoenix, I'm reborn from the ashes. Respawn I will rise above & succeed. Life will not conquer me. I...will conquer it.
  13. Hi everyone! I'm Kerry, as you can probably figure out from my super clever display name. I am a full time working mom with a toddler and infant. I finally want to get back into a great fitness and overall health routine. In the past I have had success with body weight exercises, interval training, yoga, and a few Beachbody workout videos. I'm following along with the daily emails from Steve and did my first actual strength workout for the first time in what feels like years. I'm thinking of slowly getting back on track, focusing on portion control, and exercising when I can. I'm leaning towar
  14. Hello all I'm back Loki is back after several months of injury and rehab. I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and pinched a nerve in my neck. I've been laying low and recuperating. But Now i'm back and ready to get back to winning at the game of life Currently I'm still working on strengthening my shoulders and core. I'm inspired to return to the forms after attending Steve's CA meeting up in So Cal at Tempest Academy. I really want to continue with Parktour and in order to do that I have to keep getting stronger. So I'm 100% loaded up and ready to play Ready Player One? Y N
  15. Well, I ended up having to have two surgeries in order to finish removing the cancer that has plagued me but now I am back on! I am going to pin the rebellion and look, seek, ask for motivation and encouragement. I am almost at my heaviest again, Almost 2 years ago I was at my fittest (thanks timehop). I know I cant control cancer and things, but its discouraging. I am going to go back and read emails. Prepare better paleo centric meals. I will get there. just.. Have to start. I started more cardio the other day, (Monday) and felt great, completed some yesterday as well. Today is more w
  16. Coin after coin was dropped into that machine. Why play a game repetitively only to get stuck in the same place yet again? Low ammo, low health and mana, the enemy smirking at me, gap-toothed and cock sure that it will beat me yet again. Continue? 5...4...3... One hand is fidgeting with the quarter, the other is resting near the joystick. I've spent unknown hours standing here, staring at this screen. I've memorized the minion patterns and can hum the theme song backwards now. Is it worth it? Continue? 2...1... The quarter falls with a clink-clatter. My mind replays the run that didn't
  17. This challenge ends during my next convention, so it lines up pretty perfectly with some of my goals to get back in shape and make progress on costumes. Here we go. Let's do this. For real this time... cause something has to work, eventually, right? Dauntless – I Am Brave We believe in ordinary acts of bravery; the courage to drive one person to stand up for another. I am going to be less hard on myself. I always say I will do “x†program for this challenge. I’m getting a little workout ADD, so I want to just say that I will workout 30 minutes or more 5x a week. It can be
