Newbie Rangers


Recommended Posts

There are quite a few first time Rangers this challenge. Some of us ventured over from other classes, while others are brand new to NF challenges. I know I could definitely used some support from my fellow Ranger newbs, so here we go! This is for any new Ranger.

 

Sign up here, under the Rangers tab: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnL943o3CTUvdEJDT3Vvdkc5Rzk4VUdRbXFWcHNvQXc#gid=1

 

And say hello on the thread once you do! :)

Hey, J! I'll sign up for some extra support transitioning from the Adventurer's guild. I think that at the point I found myself wanting to lead friends on a fitness journey, rather than looking for someone else to guide me, I was ready to make the leap. But, I'm definitely still going to need some help along the way! Thanks for starting the group.

I figure this will definitely be a joint-support effort, since we're all new/transitioning. Really it was just an excuse to make a group because I like having Accountibilibuddies. :D

I signed up!  Thanks for starting this.  I've never had accountability to another person on any of my attempts to get in shape, so I'm very excited to have you all here in the trenches with me, even if the transition from Lone Wolfing is hard....    :mushroom:

 

And I'm new to NF and the Rangers -- had to start as a Ranger, I always play as a Ranger!!!!  (stomping feet in childish fit)

Welcome to NF and the Rangers! Accountability has always been helpful for me here on the forums, and people are just so gosh darn nice here.

Woohoo, our group is on fi-ya! I've subbed everyone's challenges (except Olivia_Nightingale, still to come!), and look forward to catching up with your goals over the weekend. I obviously picked the right time to jump into this guild.

 

Happy Friday, everyone!

Alrighty, we technically have a full list - but that didn't stop my last group from growing a bit bigger. If everyone can post their challenge thread (or point out the link in your sig) that would be great, along with a short introduction. Also, tell us which goal has you the most nervous for this challenge and what we can do to help. Also, please try and sub everyone's threads and post once in awhile - I know mid-challenge it gets kind of rough, and I've been guilty of slacking off in my accountability duties before, but my unofficial goal this challenge is not slack off and be the best cheerleader ever. (and peeps already beat me to this - awesome! You guys rock. :D )

 

Heh. Cheerleader. Me. *snort*

 

Alrighty, I'll begin because I love to talk. My name is Jess. I'm a 26 (keep forgetting recent birthday) 27 year old grad student in the field of education. I also advice mechanical engineers as a job on campus at the University of Maryland. I've been haunting the NF forums since the end of December, have gone through three challenges, but only successfully completed two. And even that successfully is a questionable label. I was an Adventurer till now, but since my focus appears to be on gaining strength and endurance I wandered over to the Rangers.

 

Here is my thread: http://nerdfitnessrebellion.com/index.php?/topic/29118-jofalltrades-stating-out-to-become-a-ranger/. I try to be as entertaining as possible and respond to everyone who stops by. I also tend to stop posting at the end of the week or 3 weeks into the challenge. :/ Hoping to change that this time around.

 

I'm really excited about lifting, but am a newbie at it so I'm quite nervous about it. However, the goal that will challenge me the most will probably be number 3 - meal planning. If any of you do this/have tips/tricks, let me know!

what does that mean - to sub everyone's challenges?

 

It means to subscribe. If you click on the button in the upper right hand corner of a thread that says "follow this topic," you'll get a notification every time there's a new post.

 

EDIT: jofalltrades beat me to it, haha.

Name:Josh

 

Age: 28

 

I have lifted for years, its nothing new, but I have been slacking for almost a year, so I am getting back to it. I did a 5k a few years ago and I want to get that ability to run again as well. Honestly my lifting goals aren't scary, its the keeping my garden alive goal that will be tough. 

 

I started on NF because of a needed to do the 300 workout (personal goal). I cant do Pullups for (explitive deleted) but everything else on it is great fun. I have my BS in BS (mass communication) so I like to talk. This is my first NF challenge, but if it goes well, who know.

Ha!  Perfect!  I'm so glad to have found this group.  I've been lurking around the NF boards for a while, but I get a bit intimidated when I can't figure things out and have a tendency to just give up, so having y'all here to guide me helps a ton!!!  Thanks!

 

So, about me.  I just turned 39 a few weeks ago (so not sure how that happened, I swear I was just 30 last year, couldn't be more than two years ago - I'm thinking someone bent the time-space continuum) and I was very ill the first part of this year and ended up putting on 40 pounds!!!  Now, I've always been a big girl, but never had I crossed over 200!  I currently weigh 226 pounds - and despite how alarming and distressing this is, I have not been able to follow through on any significant lifestyle changes to start dialing that scale back.   Ten years ago I was a spinning and aerobics instructor, ugh!!!!!

 

And so, here I am... -- fat, discouraged and frustrated - but also determined...  I don't just want to lose weight, I want to change my frakkin life. But I'm ready to start small and slow -- I just don't want to turn back around ever again.

This will sound extremely redundant, but would your group might have room for an extra Newbie?....hint, it's me....

I've been catching up to my years worth of NF articles (I am almost done with 2012!!!!) while trying to get the entire details of the challenges and trying to quickly grasp to the lingo that having a smaller group/accountibilibuddies would definitely help me. Also, I would be considered a nerd in the sense of my personality vs. my knowledge of comics/movies. You can tell that by my profile pic.

Also, I checked out "jofalltrades" list and I am noticing that her "attribute" points are adding up to 16. I doubt it matters much, but I read that we start off with 15 points, are these points flexible as long as they stay close to 15 or how does that work?

OK...that was all. :joyous:

I've never been more motivated than in the present. All my goals & dreams will be met because I have the best motivator: Pepino. RIP puppers. :dog:My Battle & My Proof

You'll find I suck at the Math. Lemme go fix that. :D And welcome! We can definitely squeeze in another member.
