Achievement Unlocked!

November 21, 2014

Remember I mentioned a 6 Week Challenge? Well, I did it. I lasted the course, kept a journal and sent it to the organiser. I’m excited to see where things go from here… When I know more, I’ll update this post (unless I am sworn to secrecy on pain of death – or wedgies).

Until then, you guys can check out the challenge, test your mettle and join me in the R.Evolution!

Just Another Manic Sunday

October 26, 2014

I had a bout of depression last week, it’s been on and off since then. Yesterday was another culmination, I couldn’t pull myself together to perform even simple tasks – let alone change the dressings on my eldest son’s arm after he’d slid and fallen from his bike in the rain. I felt like crying, like my head was stuffed with cotton, like sacking the whole day off and staying in bed (not possible; needed to look after youngest son). In the end I took some meds and had a bit of a lie down until they kicked in.

This 6 week “challenge” thing that I mentioned is basically just the introduction to implementing a lifestyle based on training the body-mind-spirit complex.

OctSober

October 2, 2014

Further to my previous post, I’m gonna take up the OctSober challenge. I’m combining it with another challenge to follow a particular lifestyle for 6 weeks… So, in addition to no booze, I’m cutting out refined sugar, attempting to meditate 5 minutes every day and follow a fairly unchallenging calisthenic/isometric work-out twice a week (in addition to the twice a week I train at the gym). Hopefully I’ll shed 3kg of overweight too.

The deal is that you write yourself a letter at the start laying out all your goals, then don’t open it until the 6 weeks is done
