Doe Posted June 6, 2015 Report Share Posted June 6, 2015 Updated: 07.11.21 My ever-evolving battle log. I change this summary up occasionally. As a nerd trying to get fit, what motivates me? What kind of character would I most like to emulate. A sailor scout or a precure, anything mahou shoujo. And why not? They're pretty, some are very bright, they transform into a cute outfits and fight with cool weapons. What's not to like!? Giving it my all! Unabashed girly-ness - I'm girly, for an engineer, in construction, Moderation - desserts in anime, look so amazing! and they enjoy but in real life, balance is a must. An awesome transformation sequence - all the twirling, flips, gracefulness, etc. . What's the purpose of transformation sequence? "Through this power the main character transforms into a more adult, more beautiful, more skilled version of herself and she needs to be in that form to be capable of performing magic. " About Me I'm in my mid-thirties. I'm an electrical engineer, my specialty is lighting. For 7 years I worked in construction for energy efficiency in the SF Bay Area. In 2020, I moved to South Carolina, closer to my hometowns of Augusta and Charlotte. For fun, I enjoy watching Pretty Cure, Sailor Moon and other anime. I play Stardew Valley. These days most of my fitness comes from my Nintendo Switch: RingFit, Just Dance, and fitness boxing. I love to dance and look forward to getting into dance community in my new home. I had gastric bypass surgery when I was 16 in 2002 . Because of the surgery don't absorb nutrients as well through food so I have to take vitamins. I tried most 2014-15 to get nutrients exclusively from food and ended up getting blood/iron IV treatment for almost 2 months. I know for many people vitamin supplements seem like a waste of time but for some of us, it is a necessary addition to eating well. Occasionally, I use protein supplements. My highest weight was 415, when I was 15 and a few inches shorter(I'm 5'3" now). Until recently I was bouncing between 250-265, keeping 150+lbs for over 15 years was such an accomplishment for me. After my mom died in September 2018, I've gained 20+lbs and clocked in at 288 on 12/03/18. The highest I have ever been since my surgery. In the apocalypse also known as 2020-2021, I recognized I have an eating disorder. Dieting and weighing myself tend to lead to trouble with me. Being overweight, I won't lie that I'd like to lose weight but I'm focusing on living a full life. Which includes staying active and eating regular healthy meals. And treats in moderation without punishing myself for being human. Living a full life also means actually living and not obsessing about my weight and looks. Future Quest Ideas Set a schedule a follow it as reasonably as possible Build up to 10 regular push-ups without dying Remove a bag a day of stuff from the house Set of mini-quests revolving around home repair Having 3 hours of fitness as a goal for 2 consecutive challenges Take an outfit of the day pick X times a week Stay off Facebook (not including business) Previous Challenges How much do I love mahou shoujo? If you're a fan of Sailor Moon or any of the precure series, you'll notice a pattern in the name of my challenges. 😅 Episodes always have titles like "You Want Us to Transform? No Way!" or "Let's Become a Princess: Usagi's Bizarre Training" or "Women Must Be Strong and Beautiful: Rei's New Special Technique". That's where I get the inspiration for my challenge names. Sometimes it feels really corny. But I am a nerd and this is nerd fitness afterall. Some challenges I completed, some dropped off but still I keep fighting the good fight!
