Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 61
I had a really good night of deep, restorative sleep. I was honestly surprised at how rested I felt once I got up since I usually only get good sleep on my days off. Healthy eating combined with rigorous exercise seems to be allowing my body to replenish its energy more efficiently. I’m glad I’m starting to feel so well-rested because sometimes I feel so tired I wonder if crashing my car will get me out of work for the morning.
I felt a little sore at work today, no doubt because of the new exercises I’ve been incorporating into my regime. It wasn’t too much of a bother though, and I made sure to walk around and stretch every now and then so I wouldn’t get too stiff. I even tried a short mindfulness session, and I think I’m beginning to improve–for a moment I forgot I was even at work!
I decided to keep things simple for tonight’s dinner and just prepared my usual diet foods. However, I feel like I haven’t been enjoying the meals lately. It’s not that I don’t find them tasty, I just feel like I’m not getting to experience enough variety in my cuisine. I don’t want to say it’s as if I were in prison, but when I think about my favourite foods compared to the meals I eat daily, it starts to feel like I am. I only want to indulge for truly special occasions, so I’m going to have to figure out how to combat these feelings. I’ve made it this far though, so I’m sure I’ll find a solution.

The white shorts are getting super dirty but staying strong, they are only used for the photoshoot however the move the the garage is more grime around.
That aside, I had another great workout session and tried some new exercises I’ve been studying. I don’t think my form was entirely correct, but I still felt good doing them (and didn’t end up killing myself!). I think I’m going to invest in some additional workout equipment so I can add even more variety to my regimen.

Quote of the Day
The bottom line is that if you are in hell, the only way out is to go through a period of sustained misery. Misery is, of course, much better than hell, but it is painful nonetheless. ― Marsha M. Linehan
