Make the Seconds Count – Day 162

Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

This morning I decided to run up Mount Tennant once again, and I managed to beat my previous time by about three and a half minutes. That might seem like only a small improvement, but for someone of my age, I think it’s actually a huge gain. Besides, much like Olympic athletes who aim to break world records, even improvements in the range of milliseconds are worth celebrating. Even if you’re just trying to get into shape like me, you can still have the mindset of an Olympian.

For lunch, I wanted to eat something I haven’t had in a while, so I picked up a couple of slices of pizza. I wouldn’t say that I had a craving for pizza, but I definitely wanted to have a meal that wasn’t necessarily “healthy”. I’ve made it a point of emphasis not to obsess over eating “cheat” meals, as it will do more harm than good. All you need to do is plan everything out, try to keep your cravings in check, and you should be free to indulge every once in a while! As with everything, balance is key; once you find this balance, eating will be a lot less stressful!

Tonight’s workout went well, and dinner was far healthier than what I had for lunch. Afterwards, I sat down to reflect on things and work on my book a bit. For reasons I can’t explain, I’ve been on a roll lately–the ideas are just pouring in! It’s so fulfilling to take my own experiences and turn them into content that could potentially help others, so I’m always glad when the writing comes naturally.

Quote of the Day

“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.” Nikos Kazantzakis


Another lovely day. I know I like to reward myself every once in a while by indulging, but I feel that the best reward is going to be the life I’ve been dreaming of. I can feel myself getting there bit by bit, so I’m going to keep relishing every step of this journey.
