Machete Posted July 1, 2022 Report Share Posted July 1, 2022 So for those not watching the Instagrams, it's been 9 months since moving across the country. Job is great but the pay is insultingly-low. I had to take a second job at a CrossFit gym, which is great and fun and easy, but it cuts into my jiu-jitsu time and leaves me pretty exhausted. I'm also in school because I need to finish this degree. I've pretty much filled my schedule out so I won't have time to entertain the negativity my brain tends to drift into--I just turn them into memes and release them into the wild. (Doc took me off amphetamines, which I kind of miss because it makes me productive and social for like 2 days, but crashes me for a week.) Anyway, I'm not even going to attempt to exhibit any semblance of self-control; I'm just putting one foot in front of the other, hoping the world ends before my next billing cycle. I'm thinking I'm just going to work on home SOPs that I can mindlessly follow every day so I can have bandwidth for all this shit I put on my plate. I've been pretty much "winging it" with everything, and I'm finding that the basic stuff tends to get forgotten because it's not done intentionally. Just need to check whether I did it or not. 3 DAILY TASKS Track my sleep - it doesn't matter how many hours, as long as I have the estimated number on record Drink water - I just need to record what I'm drinking that's not energy drinks, coffee, or diet soda Exercise - even though I usually have the opportunity to get a workout in, it's been intermittent; maybe the intentional exercise help me with the studying For the first time in my life I'm living in a furnished apartment. Dining table, couch, coffee table, bar stools. I have no idea how people maintain a clean living space; my space always degenerates into a dump. I'm trying to address this. Nobody's visiting, but I think ultimately it distracts me from being productive and I just end up lying on the couch playing Last Fortress: Underground for three straight days instead of studying. 3 WEEKLY TASKS Tuesday and Thursday laundry and dishes Sunday trash and junk mail Jiu-jitsu once a week - just show your face 03JUL - 7 hours sleep / trash 04JUL - 4 hours sleep, 2 drinks of water, jiu-jitsu 05JUL - 7.5 hours sleep, 1 drink of water / laundry, dishes 06JUL - 5 hours sleep, 6 drinks of water, CF WOD 07JUL - 9 hours sleep, 1 drinks of water, 08JUL - 5 hours sleep, 2 drinks of water, CF WOD / laundry 09JUL - 5.5 hours sleep, 4 drinks of water SLEEP: 7/7, WATER: 6/7, EXERCISE: 3/7 CLEANING: 1/2, TRASH: 1/1, JIU-JITSU: 1/1 10JUL - 7 sleep, 4 water, jiu-jitsu / trash 11JUL - 5.5 sleep, 3 water, KB CF WOD 12JUL - 6.5 sleep, Row 13JUL - 9.5 sleep 14JUL - 5.5 sleep 15JUL - 4.5 sleep, 2 water, KB 16JUL - 8 hours sleep, 1 water, lift SLEEP: 7/7, WATER: 3/7, EXERCISE: 5/7 CLEANING: 0/2, TRASH: 1/1, JIU-JITSU: 1/1 17JUL - 9 sleep, 18JUL 19JUL 20JUL 21JUL 22JUL 23JUL SLEEP: /7, WATER: /7, EXERCISE: /7 CLEANING: /2, TRASH: /1, JIU-JITSU: /1 8 Quote Valar Morghulis Halfling Monk, Chaotic Neutral Machete's Blog: Inside A Mad Mind Third World Warrior: The Eight-Year Training Log Link to comment
