Yeah, I am still here. Things have been crazy. Stuff happened and it just broke the camel's back. It's in the past now, with a bit of luck. Things are still crazy, though.
The positive aspect is that my goal this year is to keep at it even during turbulent times and not let myself be crushed by setbacks. So, yay, I get I guess to test that resolve now.
The good news is that I managed to reflect on things during this chaos - it sounds weird, yeah, but those rare, free moments were truly one of introspection.
I always approach these challenges as an "add something every challenge". This, in theory, should work fine and is pretty much the strategy recommended... It works a tad less fine when you are a person who's work process goes from large, vague ideas and trying out a hundred of things to slowly stripping it down to the minimum.
So... yeah, seems like I need to change approach. Luckily, as I said in my last post, I am starting to know what I enjoy and where I want to go from here in terms of fitness... well, sort of It still amounts to "I WANT TO DO ALL THE THINGS". Luckily there is a class for that, and once the half-marathon is gone I will be able to fully concentrate on the Tough Mudder training. w00t!*
There is a lot more but this is the one thing I am taking from these past weeks - learn to prioritise. Strip your life down to the things that really matter to you.
Goal 1: Do some form of training every day, for at least 30 minutes.
If you don't have time, just warm up and do some push-ups. Things are crazy, as I said. But I need to keep up an exercise routine regardless because it's a priority and also good for my mental health. Goal 2: Kick sugar.
In the spirit of removing things rather than adding, let's remove the one thing that has really been screwing with me over the past year. I am not a sugar person, I don't like sweet, and I certainly don't like having sweet cravings.
Goal 3: Post in here every Morning.
Accountability and shit. Life Goal:
Graduate? Stay sane? I think I will pass this one, I am really just going through the motions at this point.
I'll do my best to catch up with people over the course of the week!
