Morning Pages Entry – March 29, 2014

So, today is saturday, and I’m writing this from upstaris again. Nice to get out of the basement a bit more often, and it’s time to sort out some new goals I think. We’re heading into spring finally, after a riduculously long winter, but I think we may finally be turning the corner. Number one, is that I haven’t lost the weight I’ve wanted to my this point, and I need to do something about that. But, it’s not all bad news. I have been eating extrodinarly well, just a bit too much I think. Specifically fruit I think. So, I need to cut back a bit on that stuff. I’m still on my streak, of no sugar or process foods in I believe 31 days now I think. I did have one glass of wine the other night, but that’s been about it. I think, I hit a record of 34 days, when I did this over Christmas, so I’m thinking, it won’t be that hard to do even longer this time. I’m thinking, that I will do at least another 30 days, but cut back a bit on the fruit and nuts. I have been eating too many mixed nuts as well. I think I had a few more days during December of only my regular bacon and eggs breakfast and my big ass salad for lunch. Days, where I skipped my third meal. Which I believe I can do a bit more often now. Perhaps, I should just pay attention, to when I’m really hungry, and not just bored. That would make more sense. Over the last 31 days or whatever, I’ve eaten super healthy stuff, but my weight has not dropped at all. I seem to be stuck at around 175 pounds, and that’s getting more then just a little bit annoying. So, I need to work on that, and get that moving again in the right direction, like I did over the Christmas break time. 160 is still a number I have in mind, and that would make a huge difference and to my overall squash game. I haven’t had the results this season or hit the goals that I had been hoping for, but I suppose, that it’s now time to start planning for next year. If I can get to a target weight before the summer of 160, then it shouldn’t be a big deal to start a really good muscle building program for the summer. Something body weight based that I can do around the boat, and around the beach. Something where I can work on strengthing all the weak spots, like my back, and my shoulder and my elbow. Maybe some good physio would be in order. Given that this elbow has been chronic for over a year now, that would be a good start. That way, I can finally get through another season without falling apart. And, I could actually start a season where I’m in shape to begin with, and not a out of shape sore mess about to injure himself doing things he shouldn’t be doing. The morning plank and push moves are good for that. Even though I can’t do the pushups at the moment. Maybe, it would make sense to try and start doing the plank with your arms extended, and see if that hurts your shoulder. Hopefully not, then you can work on upper body muscles and core a bit. That would be sort of nice. And of course, I’m going to have to yell at myself a bit for my lack of writing yesterday. I seem to do that. Do a really good day, like I did on Thrursday, then fall apart the next day. Perhaps a good goal, would be to do 5 solid days in a row of 3K or 4K words in a day. That’s something to work towards. You could probably finish your rough draft of the novel next week, if you did that. And, the other thing I need to think a bit about here, is how you let squash upset you so much. You take things far too seriously when you play. You need to have a bit more fun when your playing. I really would like to next year step away from the governing body, and just play on a team without being a captain. To play on a “B” team that is and be just a player. The first step in that goal, is to obviuosly hit the 160 weight goal.
