Make the Day the Day You Want – Day 142

Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 142

Going on a quality run was the first thing on my mind as I woke up in the morning. After a bit of stretching, I was raring to go. I’m going to try and beat my previous time on Mount Tennant before I move on to another mountain because I want to gain some more experience and I know I can improve. It’s tempting to jump straight into a new challenge, but I feel it’s more worthwhile to acclimate yourself beforehand. Besides, it’s not like there are just tons of mountains conveniently nearby that I can run!

Although my cravings haven’t been too strong as of late, I have been gravitating towards sweets a decent amount. I recently learned that sugar can be practically as addictive as some drugs, simply based on how it interacts with the brain’s reward centre. In fact, you can actually go through full-blown sugar withdrawals if your daily intake is high enough. There’s added sugar in practically everything, so avoiding this requires a lot of effort, but I’m really eager to free myself of this sugar dependency. I’ll definitely try out some strategies to limit my sugar intake moving forward, even when my sweet tooth happens to beckon.

Hopefully, running mountains will blast the lingering fat around my waistline.

For some reason, I just didn’t have the energy to do a complete workout today. I honestly tried my hardest, but my muscles just didn’t seem to be functioning the way they should. Rather than running myself into the ground, I just decided to call it quits. However, I’d say that this is the first time I didn’t feel disappointed by how things went. My body just wasn’t up for it tonight, and it was no fault of my own; that’s just the way it was. All I can do is look forward to tomorrow and take the necessary steps to ensure I’m ready to go.

Quote of the Day

“Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.” – Albert Camus


I’m very proud of the fact that I don’t even let an off day bother me anymore. There are always going to be days like this no matter how well I prepare, so there’s no use in dwelling on them when they do occur. Besides, my “off days” now are not nearly as bad as they were a few months.
