Re spawn – Week One
One thing I need to get my head in to is that I can’t do it all at once. I set a lot of goals and expected a clean run in the first week – you know, with the fresh beginning motivation. That didn’t happen, but I didn’t do too bad.
I finally bit the bullet and joined a local gym and hit my goal of two workouts that week. The great thing is that I am not as unfit as I imagined.
One of my other goals was to do yoga once a week. Hit that goal too. Its something I enjoy doing.
From there on it’s all a bit meh. I didn’t meet any of the other goals that week. That’s okay, its only week one. It takes time to develop a habit, I’m happy I got the two physical goals done.
This second week hasn’t been so good so far. Did my yoga, started meditation (something I didn’t even get in to last week), went for a 20 minute walk, did a body weight workout in lieu of the gym.
Then depression hit. The week has not gone how I planned it.
The feeling is just horrible. I don’t even know why I feel so low at the moment.
One thing I do know is that this current schedule is not working. I don’t know what it is. I need to study, I find the best time is in the morning. But, I also find that is the best time for the gym. Can’t do both – not enough time before work, unless I am up at 4am. Not going to happen, 5am is early enough.
Next weeks plan is to workout in the morning and study in the evening. See if that gets me going again.
