Anyone who has ADHD knows routine is crucial to success. I’m no different. here’s mine:
Monday: wake up at 4am. decide I need another 90 minutes of sleep more than I need exercise. spend the rest of the day feeling depressed and guilty that i’m not pursuing the lifestyle I want.
Tuesday: not a run day. think about exercising anyway, decide against it because life is exhausting enough.
Wednesday: finally run before work. feel better about myself.
Thursday: re-stablish self loathing and hope I have the descipline to run again hy the end of the day. I don’t, but I drink enough to not care.
Friday: last day of work, start to plan a long run for the weekend. feel pretty good about it.
The weekend: 50:50 chance I’ll run as planned. one more week under my belt…
This is my life. I post regularly about going weeks without cigarettes and staying healthy, but don’t think for a minute that it’s not a struggle. the key is knowing that I’m making more good choices than bad.
I am sick again. so there’s that. It’s just a cold. 19 weeks cigarette free, and still kept off about half the weight I’ve lost this year. I tried running Sunday but I was so wiped out from being sick that I only made it about about 1.5 miles. but that’s still better than sitting on my ass, right?
Still steady at ~ 200lbs. feeling somewhat pessimistic at the moment. however a fellow quitter broke this week and started smoking again, and I remained on the path of the non smoker. a proud moment for me.
That’s all for this week.
