Jarric Keeps Accountable


Jarric

Recommended Posts

So last challenge started well, but the last couple of weeks I've been in a real funk and I don't really know why. Life just seems like a great deal of effort at present and I'm making bad choices. Well, I'm making lazy choices anyway, like staying in bed instead going to the gym or ordering pizza rather than cooking a meal. I don't know why, but the will power needed to merely continue to exist seems excessively demanding at present, so I need something for this month that's simple and low key and keeps me going. To goals!

 

 

Account to Myself - 10XP

Update my bullet journal every day. This is good to keep me organised and doing all the life admin I need to sort out, and it shouldn't be too much to do briefly each evening.

 

Account to You - 10XP

Update this thread every day. Just knowing that I'll be reporting what I do, good and bad, to your guys will hopefully give me motivation to make better decisions. Or at least get off the sofa and make some decisions. Also it means that I can connect with you guys better and hopefully have time to check in on everyone's threads.

 

And that's it! I'll be starting on Monday because that's when I start challenges and I'm not wholly sure why this one starts on a Saturday. Wish me luck.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Update 1/28 (Bujo 0/28)

This weekend WW and I were away camping with Hopalong and MG. We went to a medieval jousting event on the Saturday which was pretty good fun, and other than that mostly ate and drank a lot. Also got to try pig's ears at a pub near the campsite, which were awesome (a bit like crackling but better)!

 

Yesterday was then spent recovering on the sofa - I think we totted up 9 hours in front of critical role and did very little else, although I did write this challenge. A very lazy day in all and we went to bed about half 9.

 

Despite the early night I still slept in the morning rather than hitting the gym. Hopefully I well rested enough not to do that again this week. Snooker tonight so won't be able to make that up today, but I will find time to fill in my bujo quickly at some point this evening.

Following! When you say pigs ears, all I can picture is those rock hard ones you give to dogs as a treat. I'm sure the ones you had were nicer. My local Morrisons sells fresh pigs trotters and I'm always tempted to but them to see what they are like, but I haven't had the guts to do so yet!

Or at least get off the sofa and make some decisions. Also it means that I can connect with you guys better and hopefully have time to check in on everyone's threads.

 

This is basically what I'm hoping for by checking in daily. Nothing like knowing you have to explain your bad decisions to other people to make you really think about why you're doing it...

They were really tender actually, which surprised me. I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to do with trotters though, apart from make stock with them? Maybe?

Update 2/28

Bujo updates: 1/28

 

Got home last night and did some pull ups and the daily dare, in the interest of having done something for the day. Went for 5x4 on pull ups, actually managed 4, 4, 4, 3.5, 2.5 - a bit of lost strength from where I was but not as bad as I expected from not keeping up with this.

 

A quick carbonara for dinner, slightly late to snooker (something I need to make more effort to care about) but thankfully it was a quick match so I was home around 10. Spent some time updating my bujo, putting the washing out and making pasta for lunches. I also made a weekly spread for the first time, just for the hell of it:

 

I then spent far too long messing about on Instagram, and went to bed at half 11.

 

This morning I overslept again :angry: so no run. Out for a team lunch at work - I had a very nice Tai curry and a lunchtime beer. After work I got out for the run I missed this morning, 3 miles plus 3 20 second sprints - felt really good actually. I wish I could always run in the evenings rather then the mornings but time is an issue.

 

And now I'm off to prep some breakfasts and update my bujo :)

Update 3/28

Bujo complete 2/28

 

Meal prep and bujo writing did indeed happen last night.

 

This morning I got up and went to the gym (yay!) 

giphy.gif

 

OHP, top sets were 4x5 at 35kg (~77#) - felt heavy but good. Assistance sets felt the best they have in a long time, so I'll be increasing the weight on those.

 

Lunch was pasta I made the other day, and a ham and cheese sandwich I bought when I realised I was still hungry.

 

Nothing much else to report really. Gonna try and catch up on here briefly before snooker tonight.

Update 4/28

Bujo updates 4/28

 

Got up on time this morning, despite quite a few beers at snooker last night. The motivation to get out and run was harder to come by however, so I spent a while procrastinating. I did choose a half marathon training plan on Runkeeper whilst I was procrastinating so that might help. The run itself felt rubbish so I cut it off half way through and walked home in the rain - at least I went out in the first place.

 

Work was good, had a fun client meeting, did some grocery shopping this evening, and now it's Critical Role time :)

Update 5/28

Bujo updates 4/28

 

Got the gym this morning for deadlift day, which is always good. I thought it was the day I get to hit 100kg, but turns out that's next time. This week was 95kg (209#) x 4 x 5, and that felt fine, so it shouldn't be an issue to hit 100 next time.

 

I felt really good this morning at work (maybe because deadlifts?), but then I crashed this afternoon and felt pretty ropey (this may also be explained by deadlifts). 

 

Tonight I'm gonna be hitting the local pub to see a covers band, and then I've got a fun weekend ahead. Parkrun Saturday morning, Bat Out of Hell the musical Saturday evening in London, and then into London again on Sunday to see my friend Space Cadet and do some bouldering :D .
