On 2/2 I began my year long journey to create life long habits for myself and throw in some fun intentions as well. The plan is to check in every month to monitor my progress. How did I do since my last check in on 5/5?
Nutrition & Training
The gym has been closed for some time due to the global pandemic and is now re-open in stages. Limited facilities and full billing of course. I put the account on pause and am looking elsewhere, hopefully closer to home and the office so I can utilize it more frequently. Stay tuned.
Nutrition goals met are all over the place. Some good days, mostly bad days. What is it about me that can’t commit to healthier eating? On the bright side, Whataburger is no longer an issue for me. Woohoo.
Yoga & Meditation
I have really been enjoying this time to myself. I am focused on both stretching and breathing while enhancing my calm. With the Sworkit and Headspace apps I am utilizing, they offer guided practices which is a huge benefit because my brain is easily distracted.
Photography & Writing
After years of ignoring the archives, I am about 65% done with the organization. Again, the only writing I have been doing is here and in my journal. Nothing contributed to the novel or short stories. Not even micro fiction.
I blame the work from home situation. My personal space here at home has been overtaken by the work setup. I sit in the chair for 8-9 hrs for the day job. I have little desire to sit here another couple of hours to look at photos or conjure up words for the pages. Frustration.
As always, I see some progress, see some room to do better and hope that next month’s check in will be better than the last.
