Okay, so I started a Deviant Art account and put pictures from my sketchbook there. It has a filtering system for mature content, but you should be able to see images if you tell them you're over 18. This seemed even easier than strategically covering up my sketches for NF. Anyway, the link is here if you want to look. I'll try to keep it up to date.

 

One image needs to be rotated and re-uploaded, but I didn't feel like doing it just now. I'll deal with it later.

The struggle is definitely real and I should try to find another job to apply for today too. :apthy:

Making a deviantart account is one of those things that I've sort of wanted to do, but never really had a good reason to do so until now. And thanks! :)

Week 1, Day 4 Update

 

Quest 1: Yoga

I got a short yoga session done after my run (daily stretch routine, yoga for runners). (4/5 yoga sessions this week)

 

Quest 2: Run

I ran approximately 4 km. My route is sort of on a trail in a park and the landmarks are slightly lacking so I definitely overshot my turn-around point and then used that to justify stopping a bit early. I'll re-map the route a bit for next time, I think. (2/3 runs this week)

 

Quest 3: Diet

Food tracked and within the correct range of calories. I even stopped at two slices of pizza because I realized how close I was to my limit (normally, I would just eat half the pizza). It's sort of funny how my normal eating pattern is to eat until I'm stuffed because food is delicious instead of eating until I'm basically full, but not about to burst. (4/6 days tracked)

 

Quest 4: Poi

No poi. (15/30 minutes of poi)

 

Life Quest: Drawing

No drawing, just fiddling with Deviant Art. (140/150 minutes of drawing)

 

Today I should get a long yoga session done, draw a bit, practice poi a bit and spend some time looking for work. Then when I'm done all that, I can play games.

You're doing great! And your plan for today sounds really good, you'll have aced 3 of your goals if you get all of that done :D

I totally get that fiddling with dA won over drawing ;) There's so much awesome stuff there, but it gets really time-consuming.

I wasn't even looking at awesome stuff, I was just setting up my account and fiddling with uploading images. :P I'll probably look at it more later (I definitely need to find some of these people who post tutorials or poses and follow them).

Week 1, Day 5 Update

 

Quest 1: Yoga

I got a long yoga session done (daily stretch routine, sun salutations, standing poses, standing balances, seated stretches). (5/5 yoga sessions this week)

 

Quest 2: Run

No run scheduled. (2/3 runs this week)

 

Quest 3: Diet

Food tracked and within the correct range of calories. (5/6 days tracked)

 

Quest 4: Poi

No poi. (15/30 minutes of poi)

 

Life Quest: Drawing

No drawing. (140/150 minutes of drawing)

 

I procrastinated way too much yesterday so I have to get caught up on poi and do a bit more drawing at least today (after I run and stretch). I'll try to quickly go through everyone's threads while I drink water before going on my run and then go be productive. :)

Or I will continue to sit here waiting for painkillers to kick in because my body decided that now is the time for uterine cramps.
 

And of course this means I have to look up Cameron Esposito's bit about periods.

 

But yes, run soon.

Oh, I went for my run. I just pushed it back by half an hour to wait for pain killers to work.

 

Week 1, Day 6 Update

 

Quest 1: Yoga

I got a short yoga session done (daily stretch routine, yoga for runners). Bonus yoga session, woo! (6/5 yoga sessions this week)

 

Quest 2: Run

I ran 3 km in just over 18 minutes! I only had to stop once very briefly to cross the street. (3/3 runs this week)

 

Quest 3: Diet

Food tracked and within the correct range of calories. (6/6 days tracked)

 

Quest 4: Poi

Just a little poi. (20/30 minutes of poi)

 

Life Quest: Drawing

No drawing. (140/150 minutes of drawing)

 

Not the most productive day, but I got stuff done.

Week 1, Day 7 Update

 

This was not a very productive day. I had a lot of stuff to do in the MUD I play so I spent most of my day doing that. It was fun though and I think I earned a rest day.

 

Quest 1: Yoga

Rest day. (6/5 yoga sessions this week)

 

Quest 2: Run

Rest day. (3/3 runs this week)

 

Quest 3: Diet

Food tracked and within the correct range of calories. (7/6 days tracked)

 

Quest 4: Poi

No poi. (20/30 minutes of poi)

 

Life Quest: Drawing

I practiced drawing hands for 30 minutes. (170/150 minutes of drawing)

 

Week 1 Summary

Quest 1:  6/5 yoga sessions (A++)

Quest 2: 3/3 runs (A+)

Quest 3: 7/6 days tracked (A++)

Quest 4: 20/30 minutes of poi (B)

Life Quest: 170/150 minutes of drawing (A++)

 

Basically, it's all looking good, but I need to stop slacking on the poi.

Okay, so here should be this week's schedule (approximately):
 

Spoiler

 

Sunday

  • 4 km run!
  • short yoga session
  • 10+ minutes of poi
  • 30 minute drawing session

Monday

  • 30+ minute walk
  • long yoga session
  • 10+ minutes of poi
  • 30 minute drawing session

Tuesday

  • 3 km run
  • short yoga session
  • life drawing

Wednesday

  • 30+ minute walk
  • long yoga session
  • 10+ minutes of poi

Thursday

  • 4 km run
  • short yoga session
  • 10+ minutes of poi
  • 30 minute drawing session

Friday

  • 30+ minute walk
  • long yoga session

Saturday

  • 3 km run (maybe)
  • short yoga session (post-run)
  • makeup for missing poi/drawing

 

 

I decided to slightly change my running schedule, so I plan on doing 4 km/3 km/4 km this week instead of 3 km/5 km/3 km (I didn't explore my new 5 km route to see how hilly it is because I forgot, I'll do that this week).

You're doing awesome. And I'm sure you're going to crush that poi goal this week. You were just 10 minutes short. I challenge you to make sure there won't be any missing poi or drawing on sunday to make up for :P

I'll definitely try. Today's poi and drawing got derailed by an unexpected hike though so I'm not off to a great start there.

Great first week :). Next week's schedule looks good too, are you indeed planning extra yoga, poi and maybe even an extra run? It looks well balanced, have fun!

 

Well, I planned enough poi to make up for the missing one, I think. The extra yoga is mostly because I try to do yoga on its own and all my post-run stretches are yoga so it works out that way (or at least in principle it can... I have skipped the ones between run days in past challenges so scheduling extra is good). It was actually a bit weird not to do yoga at all yesterday since I'd done it every other day last week.

 

 

And yeah, today I got my run in so far and then my partner and I were going to try to get new jewelry for our conches, so we headed to the nearest tattoo shop to find out that they didn't have any jewelry in. We then decided that didn't want to chance walking all the way downtown to see if any piercing shops were open and my partner was like "let's climb Arthur's seat" which I wasn't super enthused about because I'd already run 4 km on a hilly trail and hadn't chosen the right footwear when I left the house, but we went anyway. It was definitely nice, if tiring (and I totally ate back the calories from hiking with a bag of Skittles and Dr Pepper on the way home because this is how I roll). So no poi or drawing because I'm way too tired for either of that.

 

I think my 30 minute walk tomorrow might be cancelled since my legs might be jelly tomorrow. I'll have to see how that goes.

Week 2, Day 1 Update

 

So like I mentioned, I spent some time hiking that I hadn't really planned for so I ended up being pretty tired and didn't get all of my challenge stuff done. I did get some things done though, so that's good.

 

Quest 1: Yoga

I got a short yoga session done after my run (daily stretch routine, yoga for runners). (1/5 yoga sessions this week)

 

Quest 2: Run

I ran 4 km in 26 minutes, 6 seconds.  I took a bit of a break about halfway, which I'll try to avoid next time. (1/3 runs this week)

 

Quest 3: Diet

Food tracked and slightly under the correct range of calories. I don't think I quite ate enough to make up for the hike. (1/6 days tracked)

 

Quest 4: Poi

No poi. (0/30 minutes of poi)

 

Life Quest: Drawing

No drawing. (0/150 minutes of drawing)

 

Today, I'll get some yoga, drawing and poi done and probably a bunch of things around the apartment. If I'm up to it, I might go for a walk later since my legs currently don't seem that sore, but I might just rest them.
