Getting to the Core of the Matter


Recommended Posts

Again I am starting a tidbit late >.> But I did successfully complete my last quest! Huzzah! Now adding a few things to maintain a higher level of difficulty, and get some fitness/figure goals, in addition to staying on task for my school things.

How did week 1 turn out for you? How often are you working on your core? That's a great goal, improved core strength helps in all things! Glad you're feeling better :D

 

Started challenge kind of late, and only did one day at gym last week :| but I hope this week will be better. My previous goal is 3x a week at the gym, which means doing planks, pushups and balanced squats with the bosu ball, plus the captain's chair. So far, all I've done are planks and a little yoga at home, but now that I am no longer sick I will be more productive I hope!

Update! Coming in late whoops >.<

 

* Went to the gym x3 over the past week

* Board study was rocky; did 2/5 of the days I had it planned

* Dead-lifting, squats and bench press are all now reintroduced to my routine

* I can do 10 push-ups continuously, and 15 total (woo)

* Plants at 2 45-sec intervals... this will probably be hardest to meet. 

 

Also I made a new ESO character thanks to being on Spring Break named "Breaks-Rocks"... so if any Argonians wanna say hello hit me up!

Late again x{ But let's recap what I managed to do! 

 

Quest #1- Increase Core Strength
- 2:00 continuous plank COMPLETE! 

- 15 push-ups continuous - Achieved 12 continuous, almost there! 

 

Quest #2- Board Study Scheduling and Adherence:

- plan week ahead for board study - planned, did not complete

- complete assigned board study material - was good for 2/4 weeks on this

 

Mission:

- Re-start basic lifting (re-introduce dead-lift, bench press) - Didn't so much deadlifting but I am up to 65 bench! 

- Eat more primal/traditional foods - 2/7 days to eat bread and pasta - Failed this objective... 


Life Challenge: 
- Log out of social media during allotted study time (carryover from last quest) - Failed (if I am honest)

 

So, for the next round I will be building on a method for more consistency, since that seems to be the biggest issue for me right now. Will be adding in more lifting in various forms and working more on making sure I stay on task. I think I tried to do too much right away here... will try to make the next one go better!
