I’ve come to realize that with only having regular disappointment in my efforts I’ve come to resent my wellness wagon experience and trying to write about it. I’ve lost track of the real purpose of this blog and it’s time to reboot. But first, let’s recap.
I have gone 1 year without a cigarette. I have been running, off and on, and I’m not in terrible shape. Another great thing that came out of this past year is the return of the Alumni Run. When I ran cross country in high school, we began the season each year by inviting the alumni to race against the current team. That ent away after I graduated. I reached out to the current coach and we are beinging it back! The first race is in August!
So that gives me something to work toward. I still feel unhealthy and I’ve had a lot of days where my ADHD gets the best of me.
So the lesson learned here is treating ADHD with exercise and diet requires strict structure and discipline, which of course I lack. What isn’t shown in my wellness wagon posts is that once you do successfully develop a schedule and stick to it for a few weeks, it starts to get easier and it does work.
So what comes next?
Well first I wrote about growing up with ADHD, sprinkling ing random stories and rants (season1). Then I turned my focus to treatment with diet and exercise (Season2). I am going to go back and share my favorite posts so far, and then start writing new posts, sticking more to a diary format , only writing when I have something to say instead of trying to stick to a weekly post. I shall call it… season3? Meh, sounds lame but we’ll see. So hats off to the wellness wagon. I am still unmedicated and still looking for brain hacks etc, for my ADHD, but no more will I be writing about exercise etc., just for the sake of writing something.
