Hey hey hey. Just finished up the first challenge in great shape. Now I'll be joining ya'll for the next one. 

 

I'm mixing 3x/week stronglifts with a cardio (swimming, Zombies, Run!, or heavy bag). As I have yet to stall out at all in Stronglifts, I'm going to continue on. Largely, I started working out because I realized how much I let my health slip in college, as engineering school took up more and more of my time. I found myself winded when I shouldn't be and I decided to stop that. I'm focusing on increasing physical performance, not so much weight loss (though that can be quite incidental). I eat pretty well, especially when I'm at home, but I'm an inveterate foodie and can easily have a couple of bad days. I'm not sure whether I want to set new goals or not for this next challenge, as the previous goals have served me well and I'm not quite done yet with the programming I started into.

 

My wife, S@kur4-Ch4n!, will probably be joining the warriors. We've been married for 5 years, now, with no kids but hope to add them sometime in the middle future.

 

I'm PhD student in human factors engineering, from Texas. My fandoms are pretty wide, as I dig into pretty much everything and help out with our local general-purpose nerd club, complete with convention! I collect comics (Saga, Rat Queens, Fairest) and books (Brandon Sanderson, George R.R. Martin, John Scalzi, Charles Stross, and quite a few classics). I'm also heavily into punk, blues, and various alternative music genres, with favorites such as Fugazi (Ian MacKaye is a bit of a hero to me), White Stripes, Black Keys, Close Your Eyes, Dropkick Murphy's, etc., and I'm a mediocre guitarist. Gamewise, I'm a huge Bioware fan, particularly with the Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Baldur's Gate series, but am also a fan of series such as Grandia, Disgaea, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed. Anime I'm a fan of are: Ouran High School Host Club, Fullmetal Alchemist, Blue Exorcist, FLCL, and ToraDora, just to name a few. Board game wise, I own very little but Catan and Munchkin, but have deeply enjoyed quite a few, with Betrayal at House on Haunted Hill as a recent positive experience. I also helped found and captain a local homebrew club with a penchant for experimental brews.

I have been MIA for some time because i quit crossfit and felt like a failure. I hung my head in shame and failed my second round of challenges and goals.

BUT I know that I am not a failure, and am embarking on some homestyle bodyweight training ;)

 

Thanks and have a great week !

Yes to a campfire thread!

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Welcome back! I quit CrossFit, too, but am getting really good results from bodyweight strength workouts at my own pace. Good luck with yours!

Let me know!

As long as we don't have to post there regularly, I'd like it to stay on the boards. It's a good database and a place we can share something new and exciting we made

Hey Rangers!

 

I just thought I'd let you know about a PvP some warrior folk started up a while back. We're rebooting it and it starts Monday (Sept. 15).

 

Lose 20 pounds in 10 weeks PvP

 

20, 10, 5 lbs., it doesn't really matter. The point is to commit to 10 straight weeks of weight loss. Its a fun challenge and several of us had good success on the first one we did.

 

Check it out.
