DarK_RaideR Posted January 20 Author Report Share Posted January 20 Challenge Day 19: Thursday, January 19th Did I do my workout for the day? Woke up feeling physically drained, perhaps because I only (!) got around 6 hours of sleep after all these long sessions I've been doing. I told myself it'd be better to get a bit of extra sleep (by which I mean cuddling with the cats) and hit the office early. It's a good thing I find a bit of time to update NF while at work, because it was then that I read this: On 1/18/2023 at 7:52 PM, Heidi said: Yesterday morning I didn't want to go to the gym. I let that be true for a bit as I made tea -- it was only 5 in the morning, and no decisions had to be made yet. It was still true at 5:30, and my mood was shifting from reluctnat to cranky, not in response to anything in particular. By 6 I was feeling completely belligerent, and realized that if I felt this off, I absolutely needed to go to the gym. I walked a lap, telling myself that if i didn't want to do a second one, that was fine, I could quit and go to the sauna at any time, I had already succeeded by showing up. A couple laps later I started feeling the groove. By the time I got to a mile, I was glad I had showed up. Shout out to @Heidi for being an inspiration and keeping me on track, even unwillingly indirectly. Anyway, I told myself I'd be doing it in the afternoon after work, take a shower and do the final meetup with our Thursday RPG group before the GM moves out from near me to live with his mom. But then the heating was on and it'd be unbearable again, plus I was running late, maybe do it before bedtime... that's where I harkened back to Heidi's post and called me on my bullshit. There was no way to tell how late I'd be returning, how sleepy, how exhausted, how full of food etc, so I simply opened the balcony door to let the heat out and did my thing.
