If all else fails, persistence prevails!Lew Hollander, Iron Man (90 years old)
Nothing but crickets out here on blogland😀. Hope everyone is enjoying Spring.
At week 5, I’m just now settling in and finding my pace. I usually have two days a week where I’m “off” and being all human like if you know what I mean. Lovie had a great post this week on ego depletion and that definitely shed some light on how at times I can fluctuate between being on and off so much. When it comes to doing unfamiliar tasks I get depleted quickly, and most of my day at work is doing just that trying to figure things out using new technologies. I’m a web/mobile application developer. When I’m done each day at 4 I’m mentally fatigued, so working on learning guitar and cooking doesn’t usually happen. Makes perfect sense.
On another note, Last Friday I started tracking everything I eat in a day. As you already know when you track anything it becomes very eye opening. I’m not doing it to beat up on myself or to shame myself; I’m just doing it to learn my patterns, what I’m eating, and to identify my particular emotions at the time. More to come on this in future posts.
Starting into this whole going for it endeavor, I vowed to be open throughout and try new things along the way. I joined Hello Fresh to try new foods/recipes and this is my first meal I cooked – chicken in Dijon sauce. It was nice having all the ingredients right there and learning how to make the sauces and using different items in the salad. It ended up tasting great. I think I’ll continue with Hello Fresh for a couple of months and then end the subscription. Not digging how environmentally unfriendly it is with the shipping and all the packaging plus the costs. It’s a great jump start though!
Keep persistent my friends,
