  1. folx, we're getting dirty for this one i probably should be doing this challenge with the assassins but i'm a warrior at heart and like it here so deal with it. this challenge i'll be training for my first tough mudder - i have done short spartan races but these obstacles look crazyyyyy sooooooo goals! 5 workouts per week go outside once per week – a deliberate outdoor walk or activity don’t buy a drink at a bar unless out for a meal; keep restaurant food to less than 3x per week roll over goals: track fib
  2. I am wondering if anyone is out in the area near Groton CT? I am presently trying to train for the tough mudder i signed up for and needless to say the only shape i am in is round... so i am looking for other like minded people intrested in getting into shape to contact me and we can work something out to keep us all on track and postive and not to lose motivation.
  3. less of a secret, more just simple. i figured out some shit last challenge (pun intended) and i'm coming into this next challenge like but with life things stacking up, i'd like to keep fitness things pretty simple for now. do a solid 4 week challenge of goals instead of changing them every week like i did last challenge. Exercise. I have a 5K and spartan sprint in this challenge so i'll be following the Tough Mudder prep plan. I'll be adjusting some of them to get in heavy lifting. i've also upped my pull up bar play by a minute. 5 Tough Mudder w
  4. Continuing from Chapter 1, my quests going forward are the following: Nutrition: Batch cook some time during the weekend. Use the Zone Diet guidelines for quantity and ingredients. Prepare my own breakfast and lunch for the five days of the working week. Dinner and weekend food is not tracked, so I get to enjoy something with the SRLF and maintain my social life. Coffee: It's summer so I can't go with hot tea only. Coffee is allowed, but breaking the habit of a morning coffee at work earns me money in savings, as described below. Workouts: Nothing new here, 3 Crossfit
  5. The Muddy Belle the Adventure Continues The Backstory with James having recently undergone her transformation from jtggodqos to the cracked belle, it was time to really push herself to the next step. with her best friend and partner Brian, James made her way towards the land of Mud Monsters. great turmoil was engulfing the land as creatures of all types were caking the innocent residents in gunk, setting up barricades and cages all over, preventing even those who broke free of the muck from successfully leaving to get help. James knew this was going t
  6. Just seeing if anyone is interested in join me for the June 10th Tough Mudder in Virginia. Course is 10-12 miles with 20+ Obstacles. Website Link: https://toughmudder.com/events/2017-virginia If you're interested I've created a group called the "Riders of Brohan" that anyone is welcome to join
  7. Jon Firestar's Epic Boss Battles! The tiny fire burned dull in the oppressive room eating away at the oxygen in the room. The smoke rose in small whips disappearing upwards into the pitch black above their heads. The group huddled around the flame. Sweat beading on their heads. It was hot and dank this deep. Whoever had built these halls had taken no thought on how air would flow this far down in the earth. Four of them, two men and two women clad in rough leather garments. Pieces of armour, leather metal and mail strapped to their hard bodies. Weapons lay close at ha
  8. Leaves rustled in the wind and birds called in the canopy. The group of rangers crouched silently in the undergrowth watching the caravan creep forward along the road. The four wagons moved slowly, their wheels creaking under the combined burden. The empire guards marched in formation on either side. Ridged and upright their armour gleaming in the sunlight like so many diamonds. Not a sound passed between them except the occasional shouted command from the captain at the head of the group. The guards were a distraction as were three of t
  9. So here's the thing... I'm a bit paranoid about getting murdered. Young lady in today's society? Not the safest. So I started listening to a podcast called My Favorite Murder - which hasn't helped. But it also made me realize that my entire fitness regime is essentially about "Staying Sexy and not Getting Murdered". Goals: 1) Stay Sexy - 3 Workouts that are not Krav Maga per week (conditioning, running, climbing, weight lifting, pilates, dance, etc). 2) Don't Get Murdered - At least 2 Krav Maga Sessions per week 3) He
  10. Jon Firestar Superhero: It Begins! The best hero's aren't born heros, they train hard to become legends! I have 12 weeks until Tough Mudder so the real training begins now!! Let's do this!! It's time to put your head down and forge myself into the form I want it to be! Honestly, very little is changing. I'm kind of simplifying things this time round. Rather than have a lot of different goals I've found that I do better and feel less overwhelmed when I keep it simple. Eat Well: Don't eat like an asshole.
  11. How tough are you? Are you one tough mudder? My sister and I have signed up for the Tough Mudder run in Central Texas. It is to take place in Smithville, about 2 hours outside of Houston. My sister and I are going to volunteer on the 21st and run it (on a volunteer discount) on the 22nd. We are looking for two things: 1) Nerds who want to run this mug with us. (neither my sister nor I are going to run the whole distance, we are not scouts ;)) 2) A place to stay near the location. I am kind of poor and can't afford to spend too much money on lodging, bu
  12. I'm late to the game this time around. Seasonal mood swings had me down for a few weeks. I went down to one workout per week from mid September through now. Tough Mudder is in 4 days. I'm not as ready as I should be, but I'm going to finish it, one way or another. I've got a very special bottle of single barrel scotch that I brought home from the UK a year and a half ago waiting for me at the finish line. My wedding is six weeks hence. I kinda gorged on unhealthy food for the time I was down (as I do when I'm feeling badly), so the next six weeks (and then six week
  13. If there's something strange in your neighborhood Focus on eating food as fuel (protein, veggies, fruit, grain) If there's something weird And it don't look good Follow through on Scheduled chores: Monday-Kitchen. Tuesday- vacuum. Wednesday-Bathroom. Thursday-cat litter and garbage. Friday-Saturday- chore free. Sunday- cat litter and laundry. I ain't afraid of no ghost Follow through on Scheduled chores: Monday-Kitchen. Tuesday- vacuum. Wednesday-Bathroom. Thursday-cat litter and garbage. Friday-Saturday- chore free. Sunday- cat litter and laundry.
  14. It's about 8 weeks to Tough Mudder, and that means doubling down on training. Last month, I got my chest up to the bar for my first pullup in years. This month, I'm aiming to add 40-50 total lb to my main lifts (10-15 each for squats and deadlifts, 5-10 each for bench and overhead presses). I'm also aiming to do some conditioning work; loaded carries, and bodyweight exercises to get my endurance up. Get Stronger: Try out the Texas method for August and September Test 1RMs for all 4 lifts at the end of the 4th week of new training regimen Get Fitter:
  15. Life got a little too real this week. My dad had a heart attack on Monday. A small one, and he is fine. Now has two shunts in his arteries and can't eat anything that walks on 4 legs again for the rest of his life. But he's fine. I dislike getting sudden reminders of my parents' inevitable mortality. Thus I will distract my self with shiny objects, mud, and physical exhaustion. On July 24th I turn 30. So my theme from now until then is going to be on getting ready for the Foam Fest 5 K I am running on the 23rd with: Hubby, Best friend, Eldest Bro
  16. Allright so way back in April I decided I was on track to run a Tough mudder and bought myself a ticket and found a few friends. For those of you unfamiliar Tough Mudder is a 16-20km obstacle race that requires a fair bit of all over strength in order to complete the obstacles and a decent amount of cardio for the run itself (mine is in Drumheller, Alberta, fairly hilly terrain) I thought Id be able to keep myself on track but i got sick about three weeks ago and fell into couch potato potato chips and nachos mode. My old program i had put together had my hardest training landing in the
  17. The day of reckoning approaches. I signed up for this Tough Mudder way back in January, at @Oramac's suggestion. At the time, I was training for a 5k, and feeling pretty good about life in general. I thought 'sure, no problem, I can do anything with the way I'm feeling right now'. Well, the day's almost here, and I've spent the last three weeks almost totally out of the game, thanks to a nasty series of illnesses. My strength and stamina are down, instead of at their peak like they were supposed to be. BUT! It's not going to stop me, oh hell no. Full tilt to
  18. Oh yes, this challenge's theme is Willow It's a damned good movie and I enjoyed it very much (and I even like the book series) Find the Daikini Step One- alcohol limited to SAW event and WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. None at any other time. Step Two- Track what I am eating. Set reminders to track food consistently. Success= I will put $100 aside for frivolous spending on myself later. FRIVOLOUS Trewest; as in, for fun. Get Cherlindria’s wand Follow through on Scheduled chores: Monday-Kitchen. Tuesday- vacuum. Wednesday-Bathroom. Thursday-
  19. I love Alice in Wonderland, the show I'm in is based on Alice in Wonderland, Alice in Wonderland is super gifable...perfect challenge theme! Admittedly I prefer the book to the film, and the animated is vastly better than the 2010 version, but book gifs don't work quite so well. I liked my points method in the last challenge so will probably repeat that. A google sheet means that I can update categories on the go so don't have to try to remember what I've done at the end of each day, and points are just fun. Down the rabbit hole we go...
  20. There is a hysterical show on tv that I am currently loving: Lucifer. This month's theme fits quite nicely with what I need in my life; a little righteous fire. Sympathy for the Devil Step One- alcohol limited to one day only SAW wine event. None at any other time. Step Two- Track what I am eating. Set reminders to track food consistently. Deal with the Devil- If I successfully do this for the entire month then I will put $100 aside for frivolous spending on myself later. FRIVOLOUS Trewest; as in, for fun. Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked Follow through on
  21. So when you last saw me I was bailing out of a challenge because my mental health was going a bit squiffy. Since then I spent a month in Brazil doing circus training, lost a few of my older rats, obtained four new baby rats, got my second tattoo, aaannnd my mental health went SERIOUSLY squiffy. Like I'm currently on a three month interruption from my PhD because I stopped getting out of bed and going in for like three weeks squiffy. I am, however, starting to go a wee bit stir crazy on my own in the flat all day. So here I am. I don't have to worry about my PhD for the next little while s
  22. I'll fill on more details here over the next few days but I just wanted to get something down now so I'm 'pot committed' to the next challenge. I've been away from the boards for a long long time but I feel now is right for me to make my return: on September 17th I will be taking part in a Tough Mudder so in preparation for this Epic Quest goal, I'm going to throw down with my old pals in the Assassins guild and partake in a four week challenge to get myself straightened out. My goals will be: 1. Eat clean- no more sugar loaded crap, no more unhealthy snacks, no more li
  23. Why is the Rum Gone? Step One- alcohol limited to wine events ONLY. Step Two- Track what I am eating. Set reminders to track food consistently. Booty- If I succeed at this during weekdays, every week for a challenge, my reward is going to update my phone (time for a new one mine is cracked and glitch-tastic) Swab the Deck Matey Schedule chores and do them before gaming. Monday-Kitchen. Tuesday- vacuum. Wednesday-Bathroom. Thursday-cat litter and garbage. Friday-Saturday- chore free. Sunday- cat litter and laundry. Booty- If I succeed at following thi
  24. First of all, I passed my Nerdiversary! Go me! BUT I failed miserably at the practice PARE. In a sad, pathetic way. I gave myself a day to be emotional about, and that was yesterday. So today, I have a plan. Like in the Dragon Age game series, you have different options for your character and I think I need to go to the drawing board and make myself into the character I'd like to play as. I need to work on getting my weight down. I need to increase my strength for push/pull and carry. I need to improve my VO2 Max. I need to work on stairs. I want to improve flexibility. So here I am, alm
  25. Oh yeah baby, A Dragon Age theme. It seemed appropriate given what I plan to do to myself this month...... Durable like a Warrior Train to run the PARE On Feb 28 I run my practice PARE test. This will tell me how close I am to actually passing it (if I don’t actually pass it during the practice run). Then I either go ahead and run it for real soon after, or develop a 3 month plan to GET me there. Cardio 4 times a week Weight Training 4 times a week Grounded and Centered like a Mage Act like a responsible Adult Feeling in control of my environment helps me feel like I’m in
