Where did it all go wrong?!?
Oh dear, that was a bad start. I knew I was inconsistent, but I really thought I was going to go for more than 5 days without getting side tracked. I can understand now why it is so important to focus on a goal and make sure you take daily steps to achieve it. As soon as one part of my goal fell down, it was like a house of cards in the wind!
Starting on Day 6 of my 90 days, I spent the week working until at least 12am on my ‘real job’. This meant that I made no time to train in the evenings. It also meant that I let the good eating lapse, which meant that I did not keep up with my food tracking. Real job 1 – Personal Goals 0.
As well as the fitness goal, there was the financial goal. Again, due to working late, I didn’t make the time to write anything or spend any time on income generation. These blog entries were non existent and the ideas of what I could do to earn more money, quickly dried up too. In essence, it all went wrong very quickly! Real Job 2 – Personal Goals 0.
What I should have done is set myself time to train and write. As these are essentially the two things I need to do daily, it really isn’t rocket science. I guess it is all about planning ahead for the next day. Even if I do have to put in extra hours in the evening for work, I can at least allow myself an hour throughout the day to get these 2 things done.
This is my readjustment and learning from my mistakes. I will prepare a daily schedule for tomorrow and ensure that I run in the evening and write before bed. I will be working on preparing some exercise and nutrition reports to use alongside my ebook. I’ll give you guys the heads up when they are ready!
Just as a last thought, and to ease my conscience a little, please remember……
