What Shame Does to the Mind and Body – Day 53

Today was a long day, but I somehow managed to make it through with my sanity intact. There were a whole lot of problems going on at work, and my coworkers were a bit more unpleasant than usual, it’s hard at the cubical not to feel like a battery hen. However, I kept myself calm and collected through the whole ordeal, and wasn’t rude or unkind in the slightest. A while ago I probably would have fed into the negativity, but I now understand that this type of behavior harms both myself and others.

To free myself from the stresses of the workday, I went on a run once I got home. I didn’t focus too much on the mindfulness exercises this time, I just enjoyed the scenery and the cool, fresh air. One thing I’ve noticed is that these runs are great for clearing the mind, but they’ve also probably helped me lose a lot of weight. You’d be surprised at the total distance you end up running when you do it as much as I do. I’ve enjoyed going on runs, and this is all the more reason to continue doing them.

Its interesting when you hit a certain level you can see the change, but day to day it not clearly visible, I keep going back to day 0 and it keeps me going.

This evening’s workout was solid, but it wasn’t anything extraordinary–I’ll definitely be looking to put forth a better effort tomorrow. Other than that, all is proceeding smoothly.

Day 53 of the Year of Change Wrap Up

I took a break from the weights today to allow some muscle recovery to give time for my muscle fibres to rebuild: when you exert stress on your muscles, it damages the muscle fibres, causing them to break apart.  The runs are putting me closer to nature.
