New Quarter, New Plan!
Sometimes in July and August, there's Ramadhan, a month of fasting in Islam, for Muslim. And as I always have my "vacation" during Ramadhan which prohibit me from fasting, that means I will have to payback after this Ramadhan and before next Ramadhan.
I also want to renew my goals for my R1 preparation (an exam in our department) as I was lacking so much before this. I just had another exam, IWCF Rotary Drilling for Supervisor, and even though I nearly passed and have to resit in 90 days after the exam, the exam refuel my fire to pass R1 exam!
I also found that a combo of morning exercises and keeping my calories in range help me to reduce my weight so that will be my goal for the third quarter of this year!
My goals for 3rd Quarter 2013: July - August:
- Keep calories in range (1,200 - 1,550)
Plan: Always track food in SP Nutrition tracker even if estimate or nearly same food (I found that this way I can make sure I still keep in range)
- Follow workout plans
Plan: different plans for non-fasting and fasting days.
Plan A: non-fasting days:
Monday, Wednesday and Saturday: Aerobic workouts or Low-Medium Intensity workouts.
Tuesday and Friday: Anaerobic or Medium-High Intensity workouts.
Thursday: Pilate class or ZWOW AMRAP.
Sunday: ZWOW AMRAP or ZWOW TIME.
Plan B: fasting days: 10-min workouts daily
- Consistent study for R1 exam!
On weekdays, 30-min morning + 30-min afternoon and do in the office (I was recommended to do this).
On weekends/public holidays, 1-hr/day of review what I've studied on weekdays.
- Khatam 1/3 of al-Quran in Ramadhan
Plan: read after prayers, even if just one page
- Payback & Syawal fasting
Plan: do payback starting in Syawal together with 6 days Syawal voluntary fasting (Syawal is month after Ramadhan). The earliest to do payback is better than keep on holding till last minute.
