Max Atlas Year of Change Day Twenty-Two
Today started out alright, I suppose. I woke up early but wasn’t too enthused about doing cardio in place of lifting weights for some reason. I know I shouldn’t be picky about these kinds of things, but I don’t really like the idea of my lungs burning first thing in the morning. My elbow feels a little better, but I still don’t want to make it worse by lifting too soon. It is a bit frustrating to not be able to exercise how I want, but I’ll just have to make due for the time being.
I’ve noticed that I’ve been reading a lot more lately, and the material that I’m reading has some real depth to it this time around. I’ve always loved fiction, but I’ve read a few nonfiction books that I thought would be helpful for my journey. As it turns out, I’ve learned a couple of mental strategies for managing hunger and cravings, so I’ll say that reading has been beneficial so far.

Why is fat so hard to burn, and why when the scales are showing improvement is it not instantly visible on the body? These are all good questions maybe tomorrow I will get an answer.
My diet’s been going well, I’ve tried incorporating new kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables in my meals, and I can’t say that I’m fond of all of them. At least the variety helps keep me interested.
Hopefully I’ll be able to work out properly tomorrow. I’ll ice tonight and try not to put too much stress on my elbow.

Quote of the Day
Realize that sleeping on a futon when you’re 30 is not the worst thing. You know what’s worse, sleeping in a king bed next to a wife you’re not really in love with but for some reason, you married, and you got a couple of kids, and you got a job you hate. You’ll be laying there fantasizing about sleeping on a futon. There’s no risk when you go after a dream. There’s a tremendous amount of risk to playing it safe.Bill Burr
Day 22 of the Year of Change Wrap Up
The HIIT is well worth is and mostly saved my elbow which is feeling a lot better now at the day draws to a close. It’s not easy working full time and embarking on this programme, but if it was easy I wouldn’t be so fat and lazy.
