Max Atlas Year of Change Day Forty-One
Today was just a really crazy and abnormal day. There’s really no other way to describe it other than that it was totally anomalous, especially considering how well things have been going lately.
First off, I barely got any sleep last night because there was a bad fire about a block down from my house, and the commotion lasted for upwards of an hour. I was a bit unnerved even after everything had calmed down, and I couldn’t really sleep after that, so I just stayed up after a while. I thought I’d be able to manage, but I was completely floored once I got to work.
I was so tired, I knew I wasn’t going to get through the day without some caffeine, so I took a trip to the store to get a cup during my day out. The crazy thing is that I ALSO got a bag of chips and some sweets, without even thinking about it. It wasn’t until I had nearly emptied the bag that I realized I’d made a mistake. I drank a full cup of coffee and most of a medium-sized bag of chips–all in the span of fifteen minutes. The worst part about it was that I didn’t even do it consciously, which is pretty concerning. I can practice being aware of what I eat all I want, but what will it matter if I just indulge in junk without even thinking?
This thought kept me worried for the rest of the day, and I was in a pretty sour mood. I didn’t feel like working out or even going on a jog, but I still pushed myself to get it done. However, this evening’s workout was probably the worst I’ve had since I started the regime, worse even than my first sessions. I couldn’t help but feeling extremely disappointed in myself after all that happened today.

Glam face as felt disappointed in my lapse, we are our own harshest critic.
I guess I’ve just got to suck it up and do better tomorrow. Sure, there are things beyond my control that will make life difficult at times, but I’m ultimately the one responsible for my own actions. Life will throw you curveballs, but I have to remain calm and disciplined through it all. I’m not going to make excuses for my own failures, because that’s the only time when I’ll truly fail.
