My brain won't kick into gear. Sure it's working fine for doing things like Sparking, playing on the internet, texting, non-work anything! But when I look down at the papers in front of me and try to complete the next task, I find that my fingers are taking me away to things I'd rather do, and there seems to be a wall in my head separating my ability to concentrate on work from my ability to act on it. It's going to be a loooong nine years until I can retire!
I've started tracking my nutrition and working out again. I feel really good about this, but I seem to have as many bad days as good. I just discovered the book and website Fit2Fat2Fit. I find it really interesting and maybe I'll find some useful information there. What I noticed though is that after his journey Drew notes that he now understands that this isn't an easy process and we must make everything balance. Attaining and maintaining fitness is not the black and white world he thought it was. But I don't see that his approach has really changed! He also notes early in the book that he doesn't subscribe to a low carb diet. Again, that everything should balance and this should be a lifestyle, not a diet. But his meal plans look very restrictive and very repetitive. More like what a body builder would eat. Oh well - his journey is still interesting.
I'm going to go have a talk with my brain now and try to get it to let that wall down. Work is waiting for me!
