  1. It's that time again.... Doodlie PVP time. Doodlies are all about competition, being supportive, kicking butt, breakfast foods, a little bit of smut, and being competitive. Did I already say being competitive? In order to check all those boxes, the Doodlies are once again opening their PVP halls to all rebels, to play side by side. This time around Doodlies and rebels will fight not against each other, but with each other. In an epic battle, Light will be battling Darkness by competing in 4 categories, fitness, personal enrichment, self care, and general healthy
  2. Every super-person has an alter ego and I feel like this is a site where many create theirs. Whether you have one in your head or are looking to transform yourself into them I'm curious who your superhero alter egos would be. Mine is basically Kim Possible with a little Deadpool humor thrown in. I'm looking to become far better in the fields of gymnastics and general movement, but I love adventure. Please feel free to share yours as well! I'd love to know. By the way, my name is Emma. Superhero name suggestions always appreciated
  3. Another challenge, another chance to conquer. Let's do this! I'm super stoked for this challenge! I'll be doing a five-week challenge this time around, but I will be evaluating me quests on a week by week basis and edit, change, swap, or remove any quests as necessary MAIN QUEST Land a new job and get fit doing it WEEK 0 QUESTS QUEST ONE: badland training (WEEK 0) alternate between strength training and running in the mornings and do x4 per week (I'll be using the superhero app from six to start for
  4. 2 years ago, I weighed about 235-240lbs. I was told by multiple people, at multiple locations, that I looked like Tom Welling from Smallville. Fast forward 730 days, and I've been told I look like John Belushi. OUCH. (No offense John) I want to go back to my healthy, sexy self. Along the way, I will be fighting a few Monsters: 1. BiPolar Bear - His sharp teeth and claws are great for tearing apart your plans. 2. The Depresssionator - His foul attitude and bad hygiene would be enough. But his "just stay in bed with skittles" attack is legendary. These monsters hav
  5. Jon Firestar, Superhero Part 1: Secret Origins I’ve said previously that the uber state is to look and perform like a superhero. Well unless you happen to be born Superman the only way to reach that state is through hard work and discipline! Every superhero has a their secret origin story. The tale of how they became so awesome. This is the start of my own road to awesomeness Discipline I need to continue to lose weight, and change my body composition. I need to keep giving my body the things it needs during this time so that I can maintain th
  6. Superhero Challenge is here at last! I've had this one in the back of my mind for a minute, so this should be fun. It's also influenced by some things I've seen @Tanktimus the Encourager, @Sloth the Enduring and @Atrytone do over the summer, and credit for the title goes to @deftona So I wanted to do a very serious superhero challenge, and I spent a lot of time pondering who the right superhero to model on. Superman? Wonderwoman? The Flash? So many choices... I needed someone who hit all the points and inspired me and suited my personality.
  7. okay so i'll be adding some of my workouts here. i'm basically working out bodybuilding style with decent amount of aim in functionality of this carcass. i have tendency to be somewhat maniacal in my goal setting but i suppose writing them down into my challenge section would help with keeping myself in control... if it looks that i'm losing it, someone say it straight because no matter what the goal is i'm probably gonna get to it no matter the cost.
  8. I decided that March needed a mentally strong month for me. I will likely be limited physically due to my knee/ankle injury and it will take a high level of mental fortitude to keep my spirits positive, clean up my food choices and exercise as much as possible give my physical limitations. Jean Grey (aka: Phoenix) is one of the most powerful mutants through her powers of telepathy and telekinisis. Also she absorbs the Phoenix Force that renders her even more powerful with crazy amazing abilities. I am going to focus on the two original power of Jean Grey with the end focus of being
  9. ***QUICK NOTE: This is an RP tavern, please play in character. All things are permitted, including magic. However, please no god-modding and magic use should be reasonable, ie. you can't stop time, which applies to god-modding anyway. Have fun, and I really hope this takes off. Any questions, feel free to ask.*** As you approach the new tavern, you spot a sign with the following information: #============================================================================# Welcome To Ojara a'Lenendra's Tavern o' Fantastical People!
  10. A Superhero Story In Paris by Lilith I’m a dreamer, and I love fantasizing. I love going to bed early, to live for a bit in my own stories. Stories I thought up based on universes from books and series. They are my escape. In those stories, I can be whatever I want to be. I can have magical powers, or be a parkour goddess, or survive outside with no other means than the weapons I carry. By itself that is not a bad thing, but I usually use it as an escape too. An escape from reality, when I don’t like reality as much anymore. Pressure from university, the struggle with my weightâ
  11. Last NF Challenge of 2016 - - I am a SUPERHERO I’ve been thinking (dangerous I know!) and I have decided that I don’t need to become anyone other than myself. I will always keep Black Widow as a role model for many reasons, but there are so many other superheros that have admirable traits and are inspiring. Yet not any one of them are me so I think I will be come my own SUPERHERO! What does it mean to be a superhero? I asked my family what they thought a superhero was and this is what they came up with: From the kids - Strong, smart, agile, loyal, protective, fit, bulletproof an
  12. So, who is SomeGuyFromScotland?: I joined NF a week before the April 6WC started. At that point, I was five weeks into a new workout routine, and nine weeks into attempting to eat better. There are links to my introduction/origin story and my first four challenges in my sig below. Feel free to go rummage around in there. I’ve gone from 255lbs at the end of January, to 232 at the start of my first 6WC, 223 at the start of my second, 211 by the third, 203 by the fourth, and 196 as of right now. It’s a work in progress. There's no specific weight number in mind (yet - this might change as the
  13. Welcome to my third Nerd Fitness Challenge! Brought to you by fiction, daydreaming, unicorns, stalking and out of character superhero/sidekick/vigilante/normal peoples! Oliver entered the Arrow Cave (he was not going to admit to Felicity that he called it that), pausing at the sight of the short redhead swivelling in Felicity’s chair. “Who are you and what are you doing here?†He asked menacingly, causing the poor girl to squeal and fall off the chair in fright. “I…. I’m Pureleeawesome,†she squeaked. “I’m here for the Superhero Sponsorship program. A… Felicity Smoak?
  14. Here lies my workout battle log!!! "Operation Avenger" is something I started in my head about a month ago but was touch-and-go with for the first two weeks. I want to collect all the Funko Pop! Avenger bobbleheads, but can't really justify just purchasing all of them. So Operation Avenger is my reward system! Whenever I go down on the scale by five pounds (reward scale subject to change as I get more involved in strength training), I get to buy the next bobblehead! I started with Captain America, and he's proudly sitting on my desk at work. (Shut up, Steve, you know you like it up there
  15. CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES! Okay, guys. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Comrade Talls. I’ve been on my fitness journey for a few months now and a NF Academy Member since May 2015. I won’t give you my life story in the first post, but if you want the full scoop, my forum introduction is here. But here we go: First challenge. -- Up until a couple of months ago, I hadn’t read a comic book since I was a kid. I used to have a fairly respectable collection of comics when I was younger, but as I got older, I just kinda’ grew out of the hobby. FLASH forward 20+ yea
  16. Hey everyone! My name is Derek, and im going to become a superhero. Ive been lifting every day for about 10 months now, and im looking to really dial in my physique. My current goal is to work on my aesthetics so i can have more confidence at the gym and in my life in general. Then after that its time to build up some more strength. Maybe even compete some day, who knows? Anyway I just wanted to start becoming a part of the community since ive been readng articles from NF for close to a year. Nice to meet you all! Edit: realized i should probably throw up some stats (not sure if thats okay to
  17. So, I flamed out last challenge and I haven't really gotten back on the horse just yet. I was going to start working out today (really I was!) but my sister in law woke up feeling sick and I had to spend what would have been my workout time watching my daughter until she started feeling better. Anyway, I recently discovered the Art of Manliness podcast and I have been sort of binge listening to catch up. I got a bunch of ideas about health and fitness in the process and I tried to work one or two of them into my challenge this go round. As I was putting it into a spreadsheet this morning
  18. So, I’m just a little excited for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in a matter of weeks! As I was going back over some old 6 week challenges, I was reminded of Steve’s blog post about the Avengers from 2012. This led me to some of his other posts about becoming a superhero: How To Become A Superhero In 4 Easy StepsHow to Create Your Own Super PowerCombining my excitement about Age of Ultron with my desire to be a superhero, I shall become tenaciousglee: The Skinniest Avenger! Before I can take my place among Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, I need to hone my body and skills to be more li
  19. I've made it down to 279 lbs. I'm almost half way to my goal. I was 347 in June, and was at 329 when I started changing my lifestyle in December. In total, I've lost 68 lbs so far. Since December 1st, I've lost 50 lbs even. I want to be around 210-220 with muscle and built like Gerard Butler or the Cap. Not huge, but not scrawny either. Okay... So I kinda stopped training for a few weeks. I was car shopping because mine wasn't going last much longer. I had the gym on my mind the whole time although I let my diet get out of control. Not so much what I was eating as much as how much I was e
  20. edX have just started a super-nerdy, superhero short course. Enjoy!
  21. Hello, You may call me Captain or Inzane or Captain Inzane. Depending on how fast you can run I suppose you can call me other stuff as well. So I've been telling people that I'm training to be a real life superhero. Stephen Amell (Actor who plays Oliver Queen in Arrow) is an inspiration to me and I hope to be as fit as he is. I'm starting late in this challenge so I'm not sure if I can allot myself points for what I accomplish however I still have some goals I'd like to complete within the next 2 weeks. I'm an aspiring Android Developer and need to brush up on Java so my goal is to read
  22. Hey everybody, Hows it going? Are you ready for this next 6 week challenge? I am. My first challenge went pretty well. It definitely helped to keep me accountable for my water intake. I'm getting better about drinking at least 64 oz of water a day, but not there yet. Below are my goals and the scores assigned to them for completion. A little about me: I am an IT guy and I play emo rock in my free time (theeffieafton.bandcamp.com). When I'm not doing those things I like to play Magic the Gathering, video games, Dungeons and Dragons, as well as read comic books. In June I went to my doctor f
  23. Hi friends! I'm looking for an online sidekick (or multiple sidekicks)! I would love to just chat, encourage, and keep each other accountable. I'm new to the forum, but a longtime Nerd Fitness fan. Here's some stuff about me: 20 Years Old College StudentMarvel Comics fan (been reading them since I was 6 years old!) Some Other Things I Love: Doctor Who, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Firefly, Sherlock, and DisneyHobbies: Musical Theatre, animation, and cooking. I know, I'm weird. My fitness goals/info: I'm trying to gain muscle and stamina. Losing weight isn't a huge need for me - I'm a
  24. Back again after a less than successful previous challenge. I am hoping to make up for lost time, with the help of a little renewed enthusiasm. I am starting a little cold this challenge. I couldn't work out for the past couple weeks due to some home improvements I have been working on. But now that my bench as been cleared I am good to go. Let's get to it! Main Quest: Build muscle, loose fat, look like a superhero. 3 Quests: Lift at least 4 times a week Eat at least 260g protein per day Attain an additional 6 lbs. lean body weight (weight - (% body fat x weight) = lean body weigh
