30-Day Challenge: Days Nineteen, Twenty, and Twenty-One
And… burn out. Okay, kept my walks going just fine and my stretches and my food. But, man am I weary. We’ve been moving our office at work this weekend and I’m a small part of the team that’s involved in this. The other members of my team have put in crazy hours to get this done, so I have no room to complain, but I would be lying if I said all of this stress hasn’t contributed to my feeling of burn out on this 30-Day Challenge.
The most important tenets – the morning quiet time, the daily walks, the food choices… these have all been mostly successful, so I feel like I’ve accomplished the spirit of what I am attempting, but I can honestly say that things have slown down for me in the motivation department.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you should notice I do post my latest miles and time on that feed (it also appears on my home page in the right sidebar).
Day Twenty-One (today) has been an utter bust. I had to be at my church at 7am to help set up and run a brand new audio system (fully digital – w00t) and then I had to head to the office to help the team. It’s been a crazy weekend of much stress and a feeling of ambivalence toward, well, just about everything.
So, here I am about 2/3rds of the way into this thing and the desire to quit is even stronger than it was at the first third. Nevertheless, I am refocusing for the final push. That’s my commitment – I set out to accomplish some very specific goals – reformatting my mind in an attempt to overcome some pretty bad habits and perform a jumpstart of sorts to what I believe I can accomplish.
So, in lieu of a status update today, I’m giving a promise to go all in for the rest of this challenge.
