AverageFish Posted January 6, 2020 Report Share Posted January 6, 2020 Since the last couple of challenges went well, I'll be doing more of of the same, with a few tweaks. Nutrition: Continue to plan and prep lunches for work days. An apple and a few raw veggies does not turn cheese and crackers into a balanced meal. The goal is to do this for every work day. Off to a good start so far: roasted sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts already in the fridge for the next 2 days. Strength: I've been consistent even through the holidays. Now it's time to start the progression part: a very small increase in weights. New dumbbells ordered today. Stress reduction: This is the reason I joined the Druids, after all. My biggest issues are procrastination and time management. I get into a cycle of being tired and stressed at work, so I don't get all my paperwork done, then I have to do it on my days off or weekends, so I'm not well rested when I go back to work. I'll start by breaking out my time tracking app again, and track not just time spent working but time spent not working. I suspect I'll be appalled at what I find, but recognizing the problem is the first step toward fixing it. Stress reduction redux: It would be good for me to start meditating again. I've started and stopped multiple times, but I really do feel better (and more productive) when I do it. I'll start slow, maybe 5 minutes 3 days/week. 1 Quote Link to comment
