Journal Entry 5-23-20
I just did the numbers and I'll be making $5,500 this month. Wow...it's this feeling of pride, relief, and peace that's sitting in me right now. This is real money I'm making and it's all me...Sorry for this sounding like I'm full of myself, it's something that is just settling and I have to put down my thoughts so I can go back to entries like this to remember the beginnings days...
Anyways, updates for today on the virus:
1. 5.4 million infected
2. 343,000 deaths
3. Stores are opening back up
Thoughts for today were ranging in the zone of remaining healthy. The importance of health can not be understated. I think we all owe it to ourselves to make healthy choices. Running is a great way to exercise and I'm going to be getting back into it. At the beginning of this year I was 207 lbs, and I got down to 185, but now I'm at 191. I'm hoping to get back down to 185 by the end of this next month and then start working on my stretch goal of 165 lbs.
I keep seeing jokes online about people gaining weight during their quarantine. It's really pushing us to show our lack of discipline when our days become more internalized than external. By that I mean many of the things we used to do at a specific place or facility is now being squeezed into our home spaces which are messing with our ability to get things done that we would normally do. This highlights the importance of having separate spaces for separate tasks.
By dividing our environments into separate activities we can more easily adapt our mentality to the new activity. What we must realize is that at the end of the day our world is inside our head and we have to be the captains of our ship.
We now are being forced into compartmentalizing activities within our own thoughts. It seems a good way to get into the right mindset would be to switch outfits that are specifically for one activity. I'll try this as well and report back with my findings.
