Plenty of good behaviors developed over the month
More activity than July
Spent more time on the trails
It’s almost fall?
Ran a trail race and didn’t come in dead fucking last. Lots of work ahead on that front.
Hiked some good hikes in excellent places and with good friends
Only 30% of my meals were vegetarian
Sleep did not improve but 1 minute
Need to fully evaluate my relationship with alcohol and health
Ate a bunch of shitty foods on repeat
Had some vacations with shitty days related to food and fitness goals
Gave up after those trips and on those trips, thus making it hard to start September
I am not on course to lose 35 by 35
I did not kayak, was too busy
Barely rode my bike, too busy
Work was mentally draining the entire month of August
Stopped reading my Daily Awakening and it shows
Disconnected for 5 days and it was GLORIOUS - wrote a lot on that trip too
I am a sad boy at the end of August, hoping that exercising more will help again
Thoughts, Notes, Conclusions
I am currently NOT on track. I gave up and need to find my strength and motivation again.
I am tracking my food. I am working on doing this with more care.
My coworkers are working out and trying too. Having some support, is helpful.
Goals for September
Read/Listen to at least 3 books
(I read one in August)
Working on drinking less booze, and more water. I need to adhere to this.
Take 4-7 days off from social media (I will do another weekend off the grid)
More jogging (I will continue to strive to do a 5k run, still working on a single mile)
Working on increasing my daily average for activity It feels good, both mentally and physically.
More adventurous hikes - I have a few spots in mind.
I’m headed to New Mexico and Washington with lots of potential
Continued daily mindful breaks and reading The Awakening (at least 2 reflective hikes)
There’s no reason I can’t hit 100 miles for September. (Daily walks and jogs + hikes = c’mon man - still trying for that hundo)
I am continuing 50%+ vegetarian. For the planet, for my body, I’m reducing overall meat intake. I’m not going vegan or cutting all meats out, just less overall. It’s been quite easy so far, and cheaper. (I’m trying, really)
