Do You Even Work Here? Tanktimus' New Year Challenge


Recommended Posts

do-you-even-5b2bb4.jpg

(Yes, I know this is an incorrect use of the meme).

 

As most of you probably know, I started running the forums for Nerd Fitness last challenge. This new year is as much about being healthy on a personal level as it is helping the forums grow and evolve. Part of that means spreading my net wider than the Ranger Corps so I can relate to all the guilds.

I'm still a Ranger and always will be, but I'll be following people in every guild to keep a better idea on what is going on with the forums as a whole. Throw self care into the mix, and comes the realization that it's wise to follow about the same number of threads as before, so that means not following everybody every challenge.  

 

Now on to my own challenge:

 

I still plan on making zero week count for my challenge since we have just come off the holiday break. I'm writing this challenge out about the middle of that break and so far I've been fairly inactive. I'm hoping to get back on the ball when these forums go live.

 

Here are my Goals:

 

7 NF Beginner Body Weight Workouts

4 NF Beginner Kettlebell Workouts

4 NF Yoga Sessions

5 Walks, 2 miles minimum (Using the dreadmill is ok if walking outside isn't practical)

 

Nutrition wise I still plan on practicing Intuitive Eating, albeit with a caveat I'll discuss once the challenge is underway.

I know this is a solely Guild Leader-level of cheating, but #first!

 

Also mighty pleased you're sticking around with the Rangers for your inaugural challenge of 2019, old friend.

I'm sticking around for far more than just the first challenge. I'm responsible for the whole rebellion, but my challenge threads are in the Ranger Corps :)

This thread has now been CAPSLOCKED BY SHAAR. Shenanigans may now commence.

 

New Years is coming up. I'm hoping we can entice some resolutioners to join the forums. I want to suggest to everyone you make a personalized post on social media with couple of sentences about what the forums have meant to you and suggest folks give the forums a try.

I'm not at all sure what challenge I'm going to do yet. Which is unusually ill-prepared of me at this point.
