Recommended Posts

WHAT IS UP YOU PIGS IN HUMAN CLOTH- I mean MY NERD FITNESS PEEPS!!!  GUESS WHO'S BACK!!! ALREADY!!!

 

Man!  Already new challenge forums?!  You guys don't mess around!  But enough bitching and SHIT!   let's get this party started! 

 

200.gif

 

As some of you may know, I'm BlackTezca, a generally loud, gif addicted, game addicted, movie addicted, etc-addicted big old NERD, who decided to join up here and revamp my health a bit with the help of YOU GUYS!!

 

tumblr_lr6a6aDLHU1qfcw9c.gif

 

Just in case you forgot (like I'll let you), you'll also remember me from such topics like From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel!, BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards Feline Greatness, and my latest hit BlackTezcas' 2nd Trial: An Artsy, Geeky Amazon Must be Strong and with no Back Pain!  All of these topics are to lead to one thing...my one main quest...

 

My Main Quest is to be as POWERFUL and BATTLE READY as Wonder Woman

1370624922000-Animated-Wonder-Woman-1306

(Wonder Woman is here to stay...)

 

Despite some burnout on my last challenge, and a ski trip that I was not super careful with my vegetables on, I managed to push through and Ace it!  I will admit, I am a little lost in this challenge...because..uhmm...I haven't put much thought into my quests...

But have no fear!  I understand that while challenges are meant to push us, they are also meant to be modified and evolve as life changes!  So I do have some side quests planned out, especially one that is meant to finally, finally push me to find a Martial Art studio to sign up and participate!  So expect some edits as I figure things out, but without further ado...HERE ARE MY QUESTS!!!

 

Side Quest 1:Once a week, do a SUPER EPIC WORKOUT!

Details: FitnessBlender has what they call '1000 Calorie workouts'They don't burn 1000 calories for me generally, so I call them EPIC workouts since they contain at least 25 minutes of cardio (mostly HIIT and something else fast paced), a shorter ab/core component, and strength training and conditioning as well.  The shortest one (the one I linked) is 64 minutes...the rest go more than 80 minutes.  Well chumps...I'm gonna kick this quest in the ass!!!

Contingencies: There shouldn't be any contingencies!  I should be able to fit in this workout, especially over the weekend.

Tracking: I'll be tracking using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) and  this lovely thread will be updated.

Grading:

A for 5 to 6 SUPER EPIC WORKOUTS ( 3 Str 2 Sta )

B for 3 to 4 SUPER EPIC WORKOUTS ( 2 Str 1 Sta )

C for 2 SUPER EPIC WORKOUTS  ( 2 Str )

F for all else

 

Side Quest 2: Try out a martial art once a week until one is found by the end of this challenge.  If one is found before the end of the challenge, do this martial art class at least once a week.

Details: Well...I'm kinda in the monks...and I've been eyeing that Krav Maga gym for a little while now.  So I'm gonna check it out and hope it's reasonable in price as well as fun and practical to learn!  If not, then I'll keep looking and I'll use this challenge to do so!

Contingencies: $$$ is the only contingency my friends.  I gave myself a B for the grade if I don't find a class by the end of this challenge, because I'm not gonna ding myself much over monetary concerns with several other things coming up during the summer.  So hopefully I find something reasonable!

Tracking: I'll be tracking the workout from the class using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) and this lovely thread will be updating this thread with the classes I tried.

Grading:

A for 6 classes attended/tried, Martial Art chosen ( 3 Dex 1 Wis)

B for 5 classes tried/ No Martial Art chosen 2 Dex 1 Wis)

C for 4 classes tried No Martial Art chosen ( 2 Dex )

F for all else

 

 

Life Quest: (Thank you StillSkies)- Once a week, post a photo or link to at least item to add to a spring/summer wardrobe.

Details: I need some cuter clothes that fit me for spring.  I have plenty of winter stuff and flannel and all, but nothing cute and adorable for spring.  This will force me to get some ideas.  Note that I will count shopping trips for this (including if I find something at the Spring Flea event coming up next week) so yay! 

Contingencies: Other than money, nothing really.  This should be easy and I'm pretty thrifty with clothes.

Tracking: This thread only.  I have a pinterest account, but I only use it really to browse.

Grading:

A for 5 to 6 shopping weeks of cuteness ( 2 Cha 1 Wis)

B for 3 to 4 shopping weeks of cuteness 2 Cha )

C for 1 to 2 shopping weeks of cuteness ( 1 Cha )

F for all else

 

 

Art Quest: REQUEST TIME!!!  Have five requests from NerdFitness friends and draw (sketch, full painting, etc) that request!

Details: I decided to take requests for this challenge!  For those of you who have watched my threads as well as the accountability thread, you have some idea of my preferred subjects and capability.  So send me a request (if I have questions I will PM you)!  The first five (well four, starsapart requested something from me before :victorious: ) who post their request in this very thread will have an art done for them, in that order!

  1. Fang and Vanille for starsapart
  2. Sailor Mars being badass (either Senshi or Miko) for shaarawy
  3. Guyver 3 for Strickland5
  4. Anna from Frozen for stillskies
  5. Grey Jedi for Kishi

So send some of those requests in people!!

Contingencies: Hopefully I won't be burnt out.  I'm only doing four quests this time, and no life quest, because the last time I had five with the art quest, I got really stressed out trying to finish art and keep track of things.  My hope is that my making a smaller challenge this time, I can avoid burn out.  If not, then I apologize for the art I make for you all being terrible :hopelessness:

Tracking: I have an art Tumblr and I also have a DeviantArt (WATCH ME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY).  I'll use those for tracking and on a weekly basis...like a weekly update or something, I'll post art on this thread.

Grading:

A for 5 requests drawn ( 2 Wis + 1 Cha )

B for 4 requests drawn ( 2 Wis )

C for 3 requests drawn ( 1 Wis )

F for all else

 

All right so since this was JUST posted after I finished my last challenge, I'm just gonna copy and past my starting measurements from yesterday's post:

 

Starting Measurements:
  Date: 04/02/2015 @ 9am
  Weight: 133.6
  ***Body Fat***: 25.1
  Waist: 23.5
  Waist @ Navel: 25.5
  Hips: 35.5
  Neck: 12
  Chest: 33
  Left Bicep: 10.5
  Right Thigh: 16.5
  Wrist: 6                                                                    
  Forearm: 9                                                              

 

Yup, I'm ahead a game with this :tongue:.

All right so other than the third side quest I'm thinking about, this is turning out to be a decent challenge!  Not to much with tracking things everyday (though I probably will to keep ya'll up to dates on workouts and good stuff), but still, I'm hoping that this will be a bit less stressful than last one and hopefully fruitful with the martial arts as well! We'll see :D.  I'm optimistic.

 

Let's do this rebels!  Let's make sure to DON'T LOSE OUR WAY!!!!!!!

I lurked on your last thread a bit, and this time I'm going to actually follow you for reals. :3

 

Hi, I'm Jenn. I'm also a programmer and an artist. I also have a DC Superheroine as a role model, but as you can see, mine is Batwoman. :)

Hello!!  I've lurked a very little bit before, but I'm gonna follow this time!  What sort of art do you do?  Drawing, I assume, but is it like Graphic Novel type stuff, or more cartoony?  I can't see DeviantArt at work (damn filters), so I have to ask. I'd make a request, but I've got no idea what to request! 

 

Good luck with the martial arts!!  I've tried Krav before myself.  It's intense, but really really cool.  Very useful too.

Sure!! :D I just put it up (I seriously wrote this a week and a half ago, though)! I'm doing a... thing with my thread this time. A story thing! It should be cool (hopefully). I hope you like it.

Request something!  I'll draw it :D, you just gotta pick something soon!

 

 

Dear god. THE CHALLENGE JUST ENDED YESTERDAY. HOW DO YOU ALREADY HAVE THIS READY? I HAVEN'T EVEN DONE MY SUMMARY FOR LAST CHALLENGE/WEEK YET.

I literally pulled this out of my head and partially out of my ass too.  As you can see, I have a side quest where I'm unsure what to do.  I have an idea, but if anyone can think of something else that is not a repeat, I swear I will love you forever.

Graphic novel style is pretty close, though also with a heavy 90s anime influence in it (I have tumblr as well if that works :D).  Not really super cartoony (I have not tried much Disneyesque looks and really zany styles are a wee bit hard for me, though I can try).  I am working on backgrounds and city scapes are...well they are intimidating but I'd like to become an artist that can draw most anything!

 

Sure!! :D I just put it up (I seriously wrote this a week and a half ago, though)! I'm doing a... thing with my thread this time. A story thing! It should be cool (hopefully). I hope you like it.

 

Ohhh I'll definitely be following along!  I love stories :D

 

 

Oh crap! Double post!

 

Umm... um...

Why not do something shopping for clothes related, then? You keep mentioning in passing that you need to start rebuilding your wardrobe - why not make a goal around that? Maybe using Pinterest to find style inspirations, make time once a week to browse some stores you like and see if you can start filling in needed pieces, etc.

Lol I literally forgot about that while I posted my challenge (amazing since I repeat myself all the time).  And you know what's hilarious?  This quest would match the video I posted of Ragyo, the main badguy, fashion queen and spokeperson for the Revocs corporation (aka front of COVERS).  So...yup!  Let's do that! 

 

Thanks!  Now I shall love you forever!

HERE FOR GIFS.

 

AND FOR FANILLE.

 

For your third quest - it's fine to repeat a quest OR tackle sleep.  Sleep is SO IMPORTANT.

 

Nope!  Sherri has spoken!  I don't need sleep!!

Lol no really, I do need to keep better handle on it.  I'll put on pin on this for my next challenge.
