Day 25: 12/4/17

 

Strength:

One Arm Dumbbell Snatch: 14kg 3x3.

Barbell Deadlift: 62.5kg deadlift 4x5.

Assisted Dip: 4x5, 59kg again (I think, I forgot to record this one for some reason).

Assisted Chin-up: 45kg, 4x3. I can't seem to improve this, I've even lowered the reps from 5 to 3. Gahh ughhh. :angry: And I think I'm cheating too, I'm bringing my legs up rather than my arms towards the end of each set. Maybe I just need to lose some weight first before I can better at chin-ups? Because I used to find them a lot easier when I did weigh less... 

Wall Slide: 2x10. Tried to flatten my back more against the wall and could barely raise my arms an inch. Yay. :P I heard you can progress to wall slides by trying them on the floor first. I might try that next time and see if it helps/is any easier. 

 

Diet:

Done 

 

Education:

1/4

 

House: 

Will do later?

Day 27: 14/4/17

 

Strength:

Bulgarian Split Squat: 4x5. Getting a lot easier, more just tired than anything. A little wobbly though.

One Arm Dummbell Row: 20kg, 4x8, but difficult. Will need to stay at this weight.

Barbell Bench Press: 18kg 4x5, also difficult. Will need to stay at this as well. 

Hanging Scapular Retraction: 2x12. I could do it, but my hands kept slipping off the bar. I don't know whether that's because my (gloved) hands were sweaty, my grip is weak or I weigh too much lol. Maybe all of them. :P  

 

Diet:

Done 

 

Education:

I read over previous drafts of an assignment, does that count? 1/4?

 

House: 

Errrr so me being me I forgot the challenge ends tomorrow instead of Sunday, so I left the house for the weekend without cleaning it. :stupid:

Day 28: 15/4/17

 

Strength:

Rest 

 

Diet:

Done 

 

Education:

0/4 :( 

 

House: 

Yep, was still out of town so couldn't do it. 

 

I always have this problem whenever I leave my flat for a few days, I completely lose my habits or any progress I've made so far on NF. Thankfully it was only for the Easter weekend, though, would've been worse if it was any longer. And I did keep my diet for today too, so I kept one good habit I guess. :)

Challenge Results:

 

I'm not good at judging myself, I think I either mark myself too high or low. Oh well, here goes: 

 

Strength: B+

Skipped some days, but I did improve a bit, even if only by correcting my form. Kinda pissed off I haven't really been improving my chin ups and dips, but I'm naturally impatient. 

 

Diet: A-

Generally went well, apart from the one or two days I forgot it was the start of a new week, so forgot I couldn't eat a certain food. I also ate chocolate once because I got freaked out by how jittery I was. Will try honey or something if that happens again. 

 

Education: B+

Did pretty OK, even managed to do more than 1 module per day now and again. I didn't always manage to get all four modules done in a week though. I definitely got a lot more work done if I hadn't included this in my challenge, however.  

 

House: A-

Was pretty lazy and didn't want to clean, but I eventually managed to clean (most of the time, I kept putting it off and then the week was over before I knew it). 

 

Lessons learnt? Remember that NF starts each new challenge week on a Sunday, not Monday. :lol: 

Can happily say I think I've recovered from my depressive episode last challenge. Hopefully I can keep it up. :) 

 

Overall grade: A-
