Crazy Khajiit Learns the Ways of the Wood Elves


Recommended Posts

In any good alliance you need to be able to relate to, and understand your allies. Khajiit and Bosmer, working together. Apparently not as different as they look!

This round I want to do a few things that involve more body-weight fitness, natural movement, and general health maintenance as I continue my board-study preparation. My goals will largely be focused on balance and getting needs met more than trying to make leaps and bounds in upping any strength metrics or something. Struggling to keep focused and on task is hard enough given I have to study for between 10-12 hrs a day/7 days a week. Oof. >.< This will have a little mix (some may share an assassin-y vibe or druid-y vibe), but I am still with you guys!

 

Check on my updates/ramblings here: 

Khajiit Lady Log

 

 

Task #1: Integrating in Grahtwood:

Improvement on posture, movement, general body conformation

  • Elven Posture because computers too long is bad! Do these exercises at least x1/day
  • Natural Squat do for increasing increments (can be split into multiple segments)
    • Week 1 = 10 min a day
    • Week 2 = 15 min a day
    • Week 3 = 20 min a day
    • Week 4 = 30 min a day
  • Go on a walk all days not going to the gym at least 20-min each day (x4-6 walks/week)
  • Plank 1 min each day

 

Task #2: Keeping up in Greenshade

Maintaining stamina and strength

  • Gym x3 a week
    • 15 min cardio (minimum)
    • x3 sets of 2-3 weights (overhead press, dumbbell rows, bench press, deadlift, squat, curl all acceptable)
    • 1 min dumbbell plank rows

 

Task #3: Staying Sharp in Malabal Tor

Staying on-task with studying and preparation; maintaining good mental health and well-being

  • Awake by 7:30 AM; Asleep by 11:30 PM
  • Mindfulness exercise (do in morning or before bed for 5 min)
  • Reach at least 75% water consumption on Plant Nanny

5/09 Pre-Challenge Check In

* Task 1: Did well with walking (did not miss a day that whole week!) and did a decent job doing my squat-sits.

* Task 2: Only did Gym 2/3 of what I should have, which I'll amend in the coming weeks. 

Task 3: Need to be better about the sleep/wake stuff. Really a struggle for me, as I finish studying between 10-11 PM at night, and want to do something else before sleeping. I also tend not to actually start working on study stuff till 9AM (after waking at 7)..which might help with that. Need to focus more earlier! Also need to be better about my water tracking.

5/16 Week 1 Check In

  • Did well on Going to the gym and getting my walking in! 
  • Struggling to maintain all of the things, and to record adequately. I am going to stop making the plank a part of this and I think for now will give myself a break on sleep schedule because it keeps changing depending on my needs. Too many things to do this challenge
  • To address the recording gaps I am going to start doing DAILY logging on NF via my battle log, so that might help? Also keep open my excel sheet so I can easily access it. 
  • Also started a sheet to track my weigh-training progression :D will let you know how it looks at the end of the challenge!

Thank you! 

 

I am also working on trying to make this more track-able.. a table in progress >.< I feel like the metrics could be set up better, so I am open to input.

Goals look good. I'm guessing you don't want to make things more complicated, but one thing that's nice on tables is to color according to whether or not you met your goal. A row of "green" catches the eye and is kind of rewarding.

 

If you want to talk to someone on the boards who can probably commiserate, @lady lydia (I tried to tag her, but it didn't work...she is a Ranger) recently passed the bar. She was studying like crazy for a really long time, so she would definitely know what you are going through.

Thanks a bunch! Yeah the exam I am taking is very similar to the bar (though it's one of three in a series... I am sure there is a similar deal for the lawyers!) - I will have to reach out to her! 

 

Actually I could probably do some fancy coding to make that work in excel... that is a good idea!

Sweet goals, Khajiit! Those posture exercises sound like they feel awesome, too. :D

 

Thank you! I have to say, they do feel great. I have done the one with the arms behind the head a few times a day just for the upper back, and it is a really nice stretch. Highly recommend regardless of the goals you have ^^

Updated with pre-challenge weak. Gotta HIT IT HARD this week woo! 

Anyone have tips for better sleep-wake times? I just finish at 11PM and want to do something other than study >.<

 

Alas, I think it depends on the person. Is there a particular time you generally prefer getting up to begin the day, maybe? I think it's six to eight hours that's generally recommended, to subtracting that from your preferred wake time might give you an idea of when to sleep?

 

Epic spreadsheet, by the way. Looks great!

Thank you! Yeah still a struggle Im finding, I guess it's just hard for me to put down whatever I am doing. Need to be more strict on that.
