6-week fitness reflection (Feb 2018)

Category: Fitness Published: Friday, 16 February 2018 Written by Butterfly Wing


At the start of the year, I made an 8-week training programme, based on the Girls Gone Strong strength training programme. I basically took their weeks 9 to 16 and modified it slightly. Today, after 6 weeks, I completed week 4. Here are my summary and reflections (copied from my notebook).

Took 6 weeks to do the first 4 weeks of the 8-week programme. Despite that, I haven't finished my planned academic and research work. After 6 weeks, I was supposed to have finished the marine ecology write-up & be halfway through the freshwater one, but I haven't even finished the marine topic. I'm not even half way!

I've been so lazy and lethargic, and I've felt constantly tired these past few months. I really need to get my shit together. Both my gymming and work have been lagging. I feel so low in energy. My thighs and bum feel fat, and my thighs are constantly tired and fatigued. My tummy constantly feel bloated. I'm not eating the right food, not doing enough (any) cardio, not even doing enough strength training, and definitely not doing enough work.

The first 6 weeks have been shit. I need to do better - go to bed earlier & make myself get up earlier. Be less despondent. I'm saying I need to be all positive & shit, but I certainly could do with being less negative. Be less angry and irritable all the time.

About those meditations I keep saying I'm going to do ...
