Max Atlas Year of Change Day Sixteen
I decided not to jog and just walk this morning, I needed to give myself a break. I always aim to push myself to the limit, but it’s important not to overdo it. It would definitely stall my progress a lot if I were to develop an overuse injury. I couldn’t help but feel a bit guilty since I’m doing less than what I had established, but this isn’t anywhere near the same as “cheating”. Rest and recovery are just as essential as the hard work needed to build yourself up, I just need to distinguish rest from laziness.
Nothing new to report about the diet or my exercise plan–I suppose I’ll have to change that sooner or later. I’ve been thinking about trying some new healthy foods and maybe switching up the workouts I do. I don’t want to let familiarity or boredom get in the way of my progression
Daily Image Year of Change Day 16 #YOC
Not much to report, but if I look really closely I think the love handles are going down.
Everything else about today was just fine. I made it through work without a hitch, although for a brief moment I recall daydreaming about an extra crispy KFC meal (just for a moment!). I finished this evening’s workout after putting in a solid effort, and that definitely helped me get a good night’s sleep.
I’m content with how things went today, but I want to be proud of the work I put in. I’ll be sure to make that the case for tomorrow.

Day 16 of the Year of Change Wrap Up
The solid day would have liked to do more exercise, better to burn out than fade away and all that. However, 16 days in I don’t want to pick up and injury. One thing for sure, that working on yourself is more than just exercising, it’s adopting a lifestyle and a way of existence that re-writes the brain’s reward centre and not in a bad way.
