So, to get up to speed with how I’ve been doing with the #100DaysOfCode challenge:
- Here are some highlights from Days 79 - 93 (November 18 - December 2, 2019):
- Installed and used Visual Studio Code for the first time (only used Sublime Text before)
- Attended a university talk on data visualization, one of my specific interests in coding
- Subscribed to Traversy Media, a YouTube channel on web development and programming; watched a couple of videos there on time management and working for yourself
- Created my first Node.js server
- Listened to a CodeNewbie podcast on freelancing
- Re-installed the Grasshopper app on my phone to make any time spent waiting, like at a doctor’s office, a little more productive
- Listened to Sytax.fm podcasts on CSS tips, JS fundamentals and design foundations
- Continued to stay in touch with Career Karma coding groups and members
- I Tweeted my progress for Days 75 - 78, Day 74 and Day 73.
- The rest of my earlier progress can be found at my old #100DaysOfCode log.
While I haven’t recently posted any updates on my #100DaysOfFitness challenge, I’ve still been physically active:
- Some highlights from Days 18 - 89 (September 22 - December 2, 2019):
- Got around to trying and been happily using my new pair of Brooks Ghost 11 running shoes
- Been walking a lot more now that my new job is located far from places to eat and parking
- Been steadily increasing my jogging distance as well; currently up to 2.5 miles
- Downloaded a pedometer app on my phone to track increased walking and jogging
- Did yoga on some of the days by mainly following a 5-minute morning routine by Yoga by Candace; managed to change up yoga routine once by following a Yoga With Bird video
- Continued training in mixed martial arts (MMA) 1 to 2 times a week; nervously performed Palgwe Form 2 for the first time in front of other students at my dojo; and recently started weapons training using kamas
- Days 1 - 17 of this challenge can be found at my old #100DaysOfFitness log.
Admittedly, I haven’t been following the two main rules of these 100-day challenges which are to code or engage in fitness activites for at least an hour every day and then Tweet about it. I’ll just keep doing the best that I can and plug along.
