Annyshay Returns to the Shire

Recommended Posts

84b9bfd4db2172e60c2f1454dd6b74fd.jpg

 

My health journey with nerd fitness began in March 2012. I've been here on the forums for 8 years. I feel like I've been there and back again in that time, so it's only appropriate to return to my roots as a hobbit for the 10th Anniversary Challenge. 

 

My goals have done a 180 since I started on the site. I was doing multiple strength training work outs, whole 30s, and otherwise pushing my body to be smaller than it wanted to be. My mental health was spiraling as I was focused on the one thing that I thought I could control. My story is not typical for nerd fitness, but I have mostly gone on a journey of healing during these 8 years and made huge strides in a Health at Every Size approach. A lot of this comes out of my work with my health coach, Amy Clover, who is an amazing beacon of light. 

 

I talked last challenge about how I set core desired feelings for 2020 and am trying to make my choices line up with feeling more that way. Those core desired feelings are - love, holy, communion, nurturing, and joy. Feeling more of these feelings is my main goal. 

 

Frodo - Write

 

Sam - Friends

 

Merry - Budget

 

Pippin - Move

Following along again.

 

 

From way behind.

 

You don't realize it at first, but when you stop, you hear the pitter patter of little feet for a few paces. Loud enough not to ignore, but quiet enough to think it's not real.

Little bit?!

I love how you have picked core feelings,and then make choices based on that. Really,I think we believe that our choice are so well thought out and rational, when the truth is we really make most decisions on our feelings.

 

It's been great watching your journey over the years. I like back at my old challenges, and I was really hard on myself, and somehow I thought that would motivate me to do more. I'm glad I had people like you on my journey reminding me of the things that really matter

When did we become friends? That was in the Gryffendarlings era... man bringing back memories... I have learned a lot from you over the years. :love_heart:

I looked up my NF history this morning. Not precise as in this month we did that and this month we did that, but I joined NF in Jan.2015, first challenge as a Recruit, and then I went over to the Assassins. And it was in one (or two or more) of their mini challenges that we became the Gryffendarlings. And we just stayed friends through thick and thin, through various groups and changes... You guys are the best.

YESSSS welcome back to the Shire! IIRC you were doing a hobbit challenge the first time I posted in the Adventurers, and it gave me the encouragement I needed to post my own Tolkien ramblings.

Having a small part in inspiring such a Tolkein virtuoso warms my hobbity heart.
