  1. Hello all, and welcome to my little corner of chaos. As those of you who were following along last challenge know, I a new job, which I am starting tomorrow, and I have just recently returned to working out after a mild back injury (yay!). That being said, I am stripping my usual challenge wayyyyy back, because I am going to be BUSY. I have some busy weekends coming up, a lot of catching up to do with my new job (using a system I have not used before), and I have a personal training certification exam in mid-November. So, those will be where most of my focus goes. Someday I will learn not to o
  2. Last we left Red1263, he resumed his training under Orthos. During his time under the pollen of the Mendacium flower, he discovered that he was missing a part of himself. He once strove to complete the crystal shard that he still possesses, but that journey had been left unfulfilled due to the random direction Life had taken him... "OI! Get back to work!" Orthos bellowed. "Time is starting to run out! And you're nowhere near ready for the test!" Red1263 looked puzzled. "Test? What test? You mean this isn't the test?!" "Of course not, boy!" Orthos gaffaws. "
  3. Hello nerds! I'm annyshay! Here are my goals for the next 6 weeks... Pass my boards Win NaNoWriMo Go Deeper with Health Coaching There's been a lot of upheaval in my life in the recent past from moving across country to the death of my Grandpa to a lot of traveling, but things are starting to mellow out just in time for... my boards and NaNoWriMo. Hehe. That's right, within the span of this challenge, I will be taking two sets of medical boards and trying to write 50,000 words in one month. So, I want to try to lean on my community here a little bit hard
  4. After succeeding in a respawn challenge, Skywalker is determined to make this reboot last. It won't be easy, as one more intensive course week and several due dates for writing assignments are awaiting. So, the challenge will be realistic and simple. Keep successfully doing what works, and keep working on that which wasn't successfully done in the previous challenge. AND I'm adding a study-related one, just in case. Subquest 1: start the day with devotions (Scripture study, meditation and prayer) -> 1 WIS + 1 CHA Subquest 2: do at least >7000 steps/day -> 1 STA
  5. Hey all! Did ya miss me? It's been kinda nuts over here. The 15th was massively important: my graduate school application was due on the 15th, a unit plan I put together for a $150 grant was due on the 15th, I had another application for a $250 grant to an academic conference due on the 15th...everything seemed to be hitting on Monday. But now it's all over! Done with! Completed! I'm freeeeeeeeeeeee! ...okay, fine. I'm free except for catching up in my Spanish class, which I've been doing the minimum for in order to get everything else done. And tying to pas
  6. Yes I stole my title from the name of my favourite game currently, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (I have 400+ hours in it and I still suck). BUT WHAT IS LIFE, IF NOT A BATTLE? Ahem. Okay. Enough of the dramatics. Settle in because this will be a large post. I sat down yesterday/earlier today and wrote out what I wanted to be doing in 2018 and onward. Here's the list: Finish Cert IV in Programming Follow Barefoot Investor plans Follow No Shopping plans Be outside more Read more Write regularly Lift regu
  7. Hey guys, I decided to post my challenge in the rebelgroup because I really don't belong anywhere else. I should do more yoga (or another form of stretching - according to my doctor) but I'm really not up to that so I see if it will be possible to add it in there. Goal 1: I want to lift weights again. Not heavy (because I can't) but at I want to do somethign every day. More like a bodybuilding approach but only bodyweight and dumbbell exercices. The Buff Dudes have a whole Home Workout Routine for every bodypart which sounds really interesting. I really wan
  8. Quest 1: Something with Food. Not sure how the food one is going to shape up as of yet, but need to do something with it. Might be tracking at least a few days a week. Might be trying to add/avoid certain things. will update before the challenge starts Quest 2: Go to Kung Fu Class twice a week, and practice Kung Fu at least 1 night a week outside of class Vampires slayed (0/12) I know it doesn't seem like much, but it's more than I'm doing now. Focusing on forms, and writing out animal techniques in my notebook. Quest 3: S
  9. Happy 2017, everyone! A new year is upon us and I have made a list of my 2017 goals, which you can find on my mostly dormant battle log. I've decided to call 2017 "The Year of Fitness" (yes, capitalization is needed!). That means that fitness will always be my first/main goal for each challenge. Also, a little about me: I found NF in April/May 2016 by reading Steve's book I've been doing challenges since June last year Last year I found a purpose for my life: becoming a nomad, aka go long term traveling. I am still setting this
  10. ASA POND, HBIC We have the heroes of the world and then we have the saviors: Basically, I just want to embody them and own it.
  11. So I've been on here before, and every time I'm on here I improve myself. And then something happens (I find excuses) and I drift away from here - broke my foot & got depressed, then moved to Florida & got busy. And once again I find myself back at the beginning of my quest. So I'm respawning at level 1, and I'm really hoping that you guys will be able to help me push on through to get some progress going again. (Really, though, I do markedly better when I actually get some response on here then when I get crickets... so please excuse me for being needy and help me out by dropping in o
  12. Since 1849, Kingsman Tailors have clothed the world's most powerful individuals. In 1919, a great number of them had lost their heirs to World War I. That meant a lot of money going uninherited. And a lot of powerful men with the desire to preserve peace and protect life. Our founders realized that they could channel that wealth and influence for the greater good. And so began our adventure. An independent international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion. Without the politics and bureaucracy that undermine the intelligence of government-run spy organisations. A su
  13. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ~ Intro ~ *Third time editing this hoLy c r o w * What's Going On: We have one more possible help for the Bad FeelingsTM, but don't get to order until early October. I'm really hoping that it works. But this Challenge won't be about that. This Challenge is about trying to get better at living with the Bad FeelingsTM and managing them. Which I've been trying to do pretty much all year and so far, not so much. But I'm trying ag
  14. This is Harry Hart (aka: Galahad): He's a member of the not so secret service called the Kingsman and he's recruited me to join their ranks. But first - I have to make it through training. This is where we will be training: The rest of my group are pompous arses so we won't talk about them. There are multiple parts to becoming a spy: etiquette, work ethic, intelligence gathering, and physical ability. Manners Maketh Man: Luckily, I was actually required to take etiquette classes when I was young, so I don't need m
  15. On May 20 I have a big exam that covers the first two years of medical school. As such I thought an appropriate theme for this challenge would be to tackle the major body systems that I'm going to be studying anyway! Cardio-pulmonary: Jog/bike for 30 min 2x per week Musculoskeletal: Do a body weight workout 3x per week Gastrointestinal: Eat a paleo(ish) diet with 4 variances allowed (either a meal or a normal sized serving of a treat) Neurological: Study for my test at least 30 min 6 days a week I'm hoping to work in a bit more cardio on my off-days for b
  16. Hello again. I took a break from the adventurers last challenge and adventurers over to the druids. But I found myself doing more wandering than meditating (or levitating.) So here I am. Back again. I'm not one for introductions, but your more than welcome to go through my past challenges/intros in my signature links below. For the next eight to ten-ish weeks I'll be working towards the end game in my ir quest. Graduating college. My goals will be more towards productivity that progress me towards walking the stage. The rest of this challenge will be me working towar
  17. Hi Rebels! Ensi here I'm a 23-year-old Rebel from Finland. I've been around for a couple of years, done a few challenges and found a place among wonderful people. Right now I'm very busy with my studies, so instead of participating in the next NF challenge, I'm going to put up a battle log... Which you're reading right now! I like to keep things simple and short, so here's what I do: - The Sweetest Day of the Week I'm a bit of a chocolate addict. I've been working on it since last summer, and I've reached a level where I can deal with having a small portion of cho
  18. I feel like I've been drifting for quite awhile now. Keeping it simple to 2 things, so I can focus on them. Everything else I know I should be doing not going to take up challenge space for it right now. so taking inspiration from some of my new favorite shows over the next few challenges. This challenge- Lian Yu. Train 30 mins daily- this can take many forms. Stretching, core work, strength work, cardio, , practicing forms. Have quite time/meditation at least 5 mins at least 3 days a week
  19. I've been a member of nerdfitness for a while and have decided to get in the bandwagon and announce my daily log to assassinate kill all the things. That's right. I'm here to conquer. And to tell my tale of triumph and defeat to all (who care to listen.) What to expect during my battles of valor: sarcasm, gifs, videosdaily log of current six week challengepictures of not mehappy postssad postsstories of levling up or just how "how I battle with my exercise"random noob questions. But they'll go away after the quest for answers/enlightenment is done Goals: lose 50 lbs.(Thanks college and stre

    I completely fell behind, and stuff IRL is changing.
  21. Inspired by the recent Nerd Fitness article "Want Results? Be like Groot. I am Groot." The past couple of months with Nerd Fitness has been life changing. In just a few weeks I have accomplish more than I have in years of trying to lose weight and be strong. I do not want to become stagnant, but what I have been doing has worked. So I am going to keep on keeping on and continue with some of my quests from previous challenges. I AM STRONG Q1: Do Bodyweight Work Out 3 times per week. Measurement: A) 6 weeks; 5-4 weeks; C) 3 weeks Reward: A) 3 STR & 2 STA; 2 STR & 1 STA C) 1 STR I
  22. Welcome! After a long rest following my journey of stumbling blindly through the Hanging Edge, and restoring my HP during the last challenge, it's time for me to negotiate the Pulse Vestige. I know what's waiting at the end - A GREAT BIG BOSS BATTLE, Fal'cie Anima. So I'd better be ready. That's what this challenge is about - taking on one enemy at a time, refining my paradigms, and stocking up on supplies. Would you just look at the size of the place. That's a whole lot of cie'th to take down. Since I'm not long out of the tutorial level, I'll need to remember to keep healing paradigms
  23. A little bit about me. I started NF a year ago. A friend/math tutor's recommendation brought me here. (He was in the assassins guild.) I failed my first challenge a few times and the stress of changing majors, college, and general irl problems caused me to put on a little weight. But I'm not giving up! I've learned new habits and found out that I like working out. There's just something about getting the blood pumping, working up a good sweat, and feeling the rush afterwards. It's like a whole new kind of me time. Plus a cold shower right after a good workout is like the cherry on top. I don't
