  1. Halloooo! I'm back! Sorry for being gone for while.
    Yesterday was a Father day in my country so... I decide to go camping with him and my younger brother for 3 days 2 night.......

    Just so you know our country is pretty humid and kinda pretty cold up into mountain and I kinda forgot to bring any fire-kit so.........


    Yea pretty much sum up what me and my brother first day lol!


    Anyway I got back just fine yesterday night and finish my first final exam of the week.today.



    Day 1 4/12/2016

    - Exercise :  Early morning stretch and mediate among the forest is pretty refreshing I must say so my self

    - Coding  & Drawing :  Well our camping site is about 2 hour by foot from any electricity or ppl for that matter (Also forgot to bring my sketch book! T ^ T)

    - Reading : Luckily I didn't forget to bring my note for exam so I got a material to review during afternoon so Pass!

    - Sleep:  I can't exactly remember when I gone to sleep but should be pretty early


    Day 2 5/12/2016

    - Exercise :  On the last day me and my brother (stupidly) decide to go swim in a freezing cold lake for an hour while our father watch us so it count as exercise!

    - Coding   :  Pretty tire when I got back so I skip it (0 w 0)

    - Drawing  :  Pretty tire when I got back so I skip it (0 w 0)

    - Reading : I got to read a little on the way back so it good I suppose.

    - Sleep      :  I got back home around 11 pm after finish unpacking everything and shower I pretty much knock out.

    - Coding   :  Skip for the day yo!

    I really need to work on my portraiture, because it is so cartoony from all the manga I used to draw. The facial shapes are quite different :(


    And you can start anytime. Now is the best time! Most people use Week 0 to iron out their challenges. They realise they don't have enough time or energy to focus on all their goals, so cut one, or add one, or modify one. Some view it as the actual start (there used to be 6 week challenges). Other's see it as a grace week where they can relax their focus. I would advise against the last one because the purpose of NF is to alter your lifestyle as a whole, not just when you're doing challenges. So these habits should keep going no matter where you are or what you're doing.


    So yeh, :P Start the challenge now and don't worry about messing up or fiddling with your challenge (eg realising you need to move your exercise to the night instead of morning)


    Hey Infinite! thank for your kind advise I will keep the reading on for now when I finish my exam I will pick some other book as a material instead. I want to make this to be a habit.

  2. Nice goal indeed! My exam is also coming up too so I hope you and me will pass this with flying color lol. Also I heard that a little bit exercise between study session will help you focus, feel better, and release tension from studying for long period of time.



  3. ┻┳|・ω・) [peeking over]  Welp! been doing trial run for two day and having a hiccup here and there.


    Trial run Day: 1

    - Exercise :  Only got enough time for Mediation and Warm/Stretching before I have to commute to College : so passable? I guess.

    - Coding   :  Nail it!

    - Drawing  :  Help my younger brother sketching a portrait.



    - Reading  : Nope! don't have time for that lol

    - Sleep     :  Got to bed around 11:30 pm so a good start!


    Trial run Day: 2

    - Exercise :  Passing with flying color, also got to have spar with my Teacher, and learn new move too. Wacha!

    - Coding   :  Nail it! trying switching from bracket editor to atom.... not so bad if I say so myself.

    - Drawing  :  Spending time sketching at College

    - Reading : Only spend about 20 min reading before dozing off (-, – )…zzzZZ

    - Sleep      :  So..... I doze off at 9 pm and woke up before 12 am and can't go back to sleep and now I'm here does that mean I pass or fail?? lol

  6. What is the difference between military push ups and regular push ups? The "leg up crunches" would probably be called V-Ups, at least thats what the Army called them. As for your side quest I would suggest monitoring your caffeine intake if you drink it and make sure it's 4+ hours before you want to go to bed when you stop drinking it. As for getting up early, it depends a lot on when you usually get up and how long you have to make the adjustment, but small increments work best. For example, wake up 15 min tes earlier this week, then repeat next week for )so it'd be 30 minutes earlier than your current time), and so on until you reach your goal. That is slow but it is effective. If you don't have time to take it slow sometimes you just need to bite the bullet 3 yourself to suffer through the first week or two of feeling miserable because you turned your sleep schedule on it's head.

    Thank for droping by Viking-Doc. Well first the different between standard, and military push up for me is the hand position, and how you bend your elbow when you go up and down. Military push-up hand position is pretty close to your body and when you go down your elbow will bend back alongside your body.

    Thank for the tip really easy for me to undetstand, Also I only drink coffee only when I have to wake early and not sleeping enough. But right now I think might bite more than I can chew, At the moment feel really tire and miserable yesterday I only got about 2 - 3 hour of sleep so I'm pretty cranky right now. Also what do you usually do when you just keeping thinking about a lot of stuff and become super stress when trying to fall sleep.

  7. Today's Challenge:

    Let's do some Lunges.  Your aim is to do at least 30 lunges (per leg) throughout the day.  If you do 5 now, 5 in an hour, etc until you've completed all 30, that's great.  If you want to do them all at once, that's also great.  The choice is yours. 


    No points will be awarded but you'll have the reward of having done one activity today.  These little challenges are also totally optional. 


    Challenge Accept!! if I done this will I get a cookie instead? :playful:

  8. Welp this kinda embrassing, coming back here after I took such a long break hehe. :confusion:


         Anyway I wanna update my exercise routine I been doing after my rehab .

         1. 8 min of warming up.

         2. 40 min of full body streching yeaa..... I take that long to finnish(I kinna enter some kind of trance after awhile)

         3. About 30 min of bodyweight workout (not really sure how long I took)

         3.1 2 set of 15 Military Pushup & 1 Set of Regular Pushup.

         3.2 1 set of 30 Elbow to Knee situp & 2 set of 15 leg up Crunches (don't know how to call this one my body look like V)

         3.3 1 set of 30 Squats & 2 set of side 30 Squats hmm something like wide horse stance and then go up & down.

         4. Cool down by light strech.


         Every exercise, I trying intergrate in my work out are all low impact. So if you have some move or, an idea that I can modify or add that doesn't impact either my knee joint ,or Achilles tendon much will be greatly appreciate. :nevreness:


         My main quest for this challenge is probably consistent. I want to keep it steady for now, so that my body can keep this up without risking injury again...  :playful:


         A -  7 times per week

         B -  6 times per week

         C -  4 times per week

         D -  3 times per week

         F -  < 3


        Hmm my side quest, For now I want to get rid of my habbit of sleeping late. If you're a former Night owl then any tip, hacked will be awesome :pirate:. My goal will moving my bed time from 2 - 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. so that I can wake up 6 in the morning.


       Still don't know how I gonna grade this yet. Do guy have any ideas? :numbness:


    Sorry if my grammar are wonky. I'm not a Native so Forgive me Grammar Nazi! :hopelessness:

    This is Jin as well


    You can do this.  For your grading, dividing it is fine. Usually people just give themselves an A/B/C grading for how well they did each week, and then add them up every week. Whatever works for you.



    I think i gonna put this on the ceiling so whenever I going to Sleep or Waking Up I'll have something to remind myself what I'll become and fighting for!! :pirate:


    Good luck with your goals...feel good about yourself REGARDLESS of what anyone says! Start that first and realize you are worth taking care of and getting healthy for!


    Yeah all this time i just feel numb with what everyone say about my body but from this point on I gonna have to accept it and start to change my self to prove them wrong! :pride: Let the Rebel continue! :pirate:

    Hey what did you guy do to motivate yourself ? For me i watch this vid and many other to motivate me before every work out! :pride:




  15. I used to get cramps in my lower right abdomen when running hard.  What I experienced is called: exercise related transient abdominal pain.  I took it as a sign that I was running harder than my body was ready for.  I handled it by slowing down the next time I ran and built my speed back up over a couple of weeks.


    ^Ah i see so that what it call :playful: Thank for the info man now i know where to look it up!?!


    Here is what i found:

    What to Do for a Side Stitch

    If you develop a side stitch when running, stop running and place your hand into the right side of your belly and push up while inhaling and exhaling evenly. As you run or swim, try to take even, deep breaths. The stretched ligament theory would argue that shallow breathing tends to increase the risk of a stitch because the diaphragm is always slightly raised and never lowers far enough to allow the ligaments to relax. When this happens the diaphragm becomes stressed and a spasm or "stitch" is more likely.


    Some other ways to alleviate the pain of a side stitch include:

    Tips for Preventing a Side Stitch
    • Time your pre-race meal to allow it to digest prior to the event
    • Avoid drinking reconstituted fruit juices and beverages high in carbohydrate and osmolality before and during exercise
    • Stretching may relieve the pain of a stitch. Raise your right arm straight up and lean toward the left. Hold for 30 seconds, release, then stretch the other side.
    • Slow down your pace until pain lessens.
    • Massage or press on the area with pain. Bend forward to stretch the diaphragm and ease the pain.
    • * If you continue to experience pain, see your doctor.
