  1. *put awesome intro story here* (will put link if I do write this month, there is scenes forming in my head but quite don't have it down yet- one day will hold a Narrative). Can feel the celebration of the first harvest... Literally in the wind. I love this time of year, I realize Fall just brings wind of magic and hope (perhaps why the Fall semester is easier than Spring for me?) So perhaps the perfect time for me to complete a full Whole30! Last month I had done a no fast food challenge... Had only cracked twice with Subway and Chipotle. While havin
  2. WhitebeltBrowncoat Respawns Hi all, It's been a while since I have done one of these challenges, and the first time doing one with the Rangers. Here's a bit of background about me. I just turned 34, am married, and have an 8-year old Mini-Browncoat. The wife and I have decided that we need to get healthy. I did a handful of challenges with the Monks, did one with the Assassins, and now thought I would give the Rangers a try. Major Goal: Lose 60 Pounds Right now I'm tipping the scales at 245. Not the heaviest I've ever been, but getting close. My goal weight is 185. I was
  3. I am a little late to start this challenge, but I sort of started it yesterday... when I bought the e-Book of the RBG Fitness Routine. If Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg can do it at 85? Damnit, so can I. But baby steps, yeah? I'm starting a shortened version twice a week, 30 minutes, as I don't have the time to do more right now, but yeah, it's a cute book, and why not? Which brings me to.... TIME BLOCKING. As I get closer to my trip to Japan, my time is more and more valuable. I have two major puppet builds to do this month, a day job to keep on top of, and lear
  4. This challenge is mostly a continuation of the last challenge for me, since I came in late and the things I was working on are still in progress ^^; There are some modifications though. Main Quest - Grasping the sword (getting up and fighting back against my mental and physical issues) Sidequest 1 - Daily yoga - I have my yoga set for 11am right now, which means I need to be up a bit before that to eat something (before you ask - I work 3:30-midnight, hence the weirdness of my schedule. I'm trying to roll back my timing so I'm up earlier and in bed before 4am) and I wan
  5. Fonzico woke up to a surprisingly balmy October day. She stretched up, rising on her tippie toes to greet the sun - "where have you been, my friend?" Turning to Hyzer with a sly grin, "what do you say, boy? Time for an adventure?" I fully admit, I've been taking advantage of my hubby and letting him do the lions share of the dog walking lately. Which is insane, as one of the reasons I wanted a dog was to have a walking companion, since hubs doesn't really like to walk unless it's to get somewhere. Especially since the days are now getting shortly (quickly!) I'm really going t
  6. Hello again, all! I'm back for another air-installment to try to build awesome habits. Last time around, my challenge was simple, but I still bit off more than I could chew. My new job, an online course (just finished up!) a surprise Whole30 with coworkers and some other challenges really threw wrenches into my system. Not great! I'd like to do this challenge again (even though I did alright last time!) to really solidify these habits and build on them. I'll also be emphasizing daily morning rituals. When you're taking care of an Air Temple, you've got to start the day off rig
  7. This challenge I want to focus on my eating. The last few months I’ve been pretty bad about home cooking, coffee and sugar. Because I’ve been so lazy about food, I go the easy route which is pre made foods or snacks which tend to be sugary treats. I know that diet it essential to getting healthy and losing weight and it’s something I always struggle with. It’s time for my yearly Whole30! Whole30 400 pts at Completion Start 8/13 - End 9/11 Complete 30 days of no Dairy, Sugar, Grains, Legume and Alcohol. Try 4 new vegetables. Accountability :
  8. It's been a long time... Too much has happened in the last...18 months to even try to condense it all. To sum it up; put on 10kg, became sedentary, have a very stressful job. Time to fix things! Quest One: Lose weight - My final goal is to get to 60kg. I'm currently at 72.4kg having lost 2kg since rejoining this site - Whole30 Weekly shopping lists & meal plans - I want to make Wednesday a shopping day and food prep day because it's my day off Practice a Whole30 diet 5 out of 7 days, to keep it sustainable longer term
  9. Early in January I had committed to starting a Whole 30 on February 6. This would be my first whole 30 and my second foray into paleo-ish eating. After running a slow-bulk over about 8 months, with great results, I had built my weight up to a level I was not totally comfortable with. But mostly, my reason for starting the whole 30, is that my nutrition habits had gotten out of control. Things I had previously “quit” were now a regular occurrence back in my diet… Mainly sweets. Diet sodas, baked goods, chocolate on chocolate on chocolate. February 6th was determined as my start date
  10. Basically this: Whole30 (of which I am already on day 4) and reading It Starts With Food Things to do instead of sitting on the couch all day like I do every summer (thinking of a list kind of like @juliebarkley's random encounters from her last challenge, I'm still trying to come up with a list of things) Practice clarinet again (I've been over a month off and I need to get my chips back in shape for ClarinetFest) Bible reading (because Lord knows I don't do that enough) Planned things: ClarinetFest Optometrist appointment Landmark self expressio
  11. I have been MIA from here for around 18 months! The last time I took part in a challenge I had just become a pharmacist, so I was working 60 hours/week, plus trying to plan my wedding, my dad was having health scare after health scare and I'd just moved house. Since then my job has settled down, I'm comfortable at home and everything is okay with my family. I've also put on 10kg since my wedding. I'm ready to re-boot, and be accountable. I've been a part of Noom coaching for around 8 weeks now, so I'm half way through, I've also got a new gym buddy (though
  12. Last year was a rough year. This year I had planned to make a comeback, then I overcommitted and my schedule has been really busy. I've been waiting for too long and I don't want to do it anymore. I've tried a few different ways of working on my 2017 Roadmap despite my schedule with varied success. This time it is going to work. This is the last challenge with the crazy schedule and I want to position myself for an epic challenge next time around. I'll be working on 2 things and 2 things only - Food and Fitness Food - Whole30 I'm taking the plunge. I've been
  13. About me: Hokay… so I have been a part of Nerdfitness for almost 5 years (!!!). I have mostly been a lifter and paleo person, but since my move to Alaska and pregnancy and new motherhood all really threw off my routines and habits. I haven’t been around as much this past year, but I’m determined to change that. I’ve been in Alaska for 3 years, my husband is military. But we are fortunate enough to be staying here for another 5 years! I love to hike year round, so this place is perfect for me. My kiddo is almost 11 months old, and a little hellion! I also have a german shepherd who
  14. I'm coming off the high of a wildly successful challenge, and I am so committed to making those changes last! I completed my 3rd Whole30 last round, and it was by far my most successful. I ate like a Queen, I got all my workouts in, I walked, I learned, I journalled. Now I need to find a framework for it all that works in my post-Whole30 world. I find the extreme strictness of the program much easier than exercising moderation - if cheating isn't an option, I won't do it. If it's okay to have just a little of whatever, drawing the line where I stop is SO much harder! So my foc
  15. Nothing new or unusual to see here, but I have pretty clear motivation to keep my eating and working out on track this month. I completely dropped off the last challenge, *sigh*. Would like to document my efforts this month, despite joining three days late I've been working on these things this month. I may or may not continue adding Brooklyn 9-9 gifs despite lack of relevancy. Overarching Quest: 25% Body Fat Haven't made a lot of progress with this, my weight drifted upwards in Q4 of 2016. But doing the W30 is a good re-start. Mission #1: Complete the Whole
  16. Use It AND Lose It! Challenge theme is a play on theory Use It or Lose It (if you don't use or continue to practice an ability, you might lose it). I want to use my gym memberships and time well, I want to continue to practice my handstands and muscle ups; but I also want to LOSE all those holiday pounds I gobbled up... Diet 1. Complete a Whole30 (Jan 2nd to Jan 31) - not tracking food as per rules but will keep food journal for accountability. +1xp per each day journal-ed. My husband and I always do a dry January so I knew this would be a great time to do
  17. I'm back where I belong with my beloved Assassins. I have a renewed understanding of my long-term goals and the motivation to achieve them. Let's Go! Simple and SINISTER Challenge Goal #1- Tighten up my diet Keeping with the Simple and Sinister theme I'll be doing a Whole30 and tracking my food every day. E.V.E.R.Y Day That's no sugar, no grains, no legumes. Goal #2- Get Stronger Follow the Simple&Sinister kettlebell workout. 4x and week plus 2 additional workouts of my choosing. Yes, 6 workouts a week.
  18. 2017 and Yasha’s keen Some big things happening this year (to be fair towards the end of the year, but still). Mr and I have decided to go ahead with the tentative plan and get married September 1st 2017 on our 10 year anniversary (we’ve been engaged 2 years already, just without a concrete ‘date’) and then as our Honeymoon/travel extravaganza we are hoping to spend between one and two months in the USofA (and a little pop in to Canada) roadtripping around visiting internet friends and feeding the travel bug. Wowsers. SO. I want to get a bit more serious
  19. Man, I just love the new year! It's like a brand new notebook, with margins unscribbled. It's like a fresh field of snow with no foot prints. It's a bright Saturday morning when you woke up early and have no plans. In short, it's pure, unadulterated potential. Right now, I have the potential to become an absolutely amazing version of myself, and DAMMIT I'm going to realise that potential THIS YEAR. Full stop. This challenge is stepping stone #1 towards that Fonzico. Nitty gritty: Goal Number One: Complete the Whole 30.
  20. Last Challenge got derailed by a fun combo of depression, major illness, and General Ennui (worst military leader *ever*). Hey, new year, new me, new "screw you health issues, you can't mess with me"! So, here's my Challenge goals: Goal 1: Whole30 Complete the Whole30 that I started late for Jan (because I had bronchitis and didn't want to do something new and different until that was sorted). So, it goes through Feb 4. This is the first time I'm trying this, and I'm wary yet committed. Goal 2: Yoga Part of my health woes involved cracking under the pressure of str
  21. Doing my second Whole30 because I’ve been eating like a major asshole this year and that needs to stop. I also want to help my head live a migraine free life. I’ve not had a steady workout in a while so I want to start doing that again as well. This challenge will be based on points and if I pass I’m going to treat myself to new workout pants and socks or a new pair of running shoes. Which I’ll be able to afford since the whole30 limits eating out. Points Points - 30+12+4+280 = 326 Max Points w/Bonus - 30+8+12+16+4+8+280= 358 Points to pass= 250
  22. Honestly, I'm not really sure about doing a challenge this time. The challenges just seems to have lost some of the spark it once had to me. Also just in general, motivation/moods/adulting has become pretty hard. Part of this challenge is just getting through it, some of it will be trying to find that spark again. Since I stopped doing mud runs, my motivation for working out has been lacking, and not sure where I want to go from here, but I need to find it. (although Pokemon Go has helped the last 2 days) Also a goal of posting on NF every day, either an update on mine, or a post on someone el
  23. I'm much more of a Meg than a Hercules, but this summer is a great way to change that! I fell off the map here at Nerd Fitness when I became really ill back in March, and now I have pretty much recovered! I was recently diagnosed with lupus, and the symptoms have mostly subsided aside from a couple bad days a month. However, as of Tuesday, I will be in a high-stress teaching bootcamp of sorts, and I get my first classroom in August. I need to get back into good food and exercise to keep my body together and hopefully mitigate any return of symptoms that are induced by stress.
  24. I just started with NFA and was reading through the Nutrition section. I am 19 days into Whole30 and feel great. But I am wondering about the leveling up. Do I really just jump right up to Level 9 because I've been on Whole30 for over 2 weeks? It eliminates all of those food groups right off the bat, so there is no gradual phasing into this lifestyle of eating.
  25. For the next 30 days, I only have one goal: Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered... I will be in control of what I eat. It's only forever 30 days....not long at all... Tomorrow (Tuesday, March 29th, 2016) is go time. Let's do this.
