Recall at the beginning of the year I was gung-ho about #Project44. The mission to make a better-Don before my 44th birthday in July. Oops. Sorta fell by the wayside, but I’d like to say it’s back on the agenda and I have 71-days until the big 4-4 (as they say …OK. Nobody says that).
Maybe I don’t weigh 144 pounds, yet. Maybe I don’t honor my 44-minutes of exercise per day. Maybe I don’t put myself to bed at 9:44 like I said I was going to. But it’s not like the year has been without self-improvement. Trust me.
The biggest thing I’ve done (in the past month) was revising my eating plan. I had been on an “intermittent fasting” kick and it was wreaking havoc on my body and brain. Enter the book The Brain Fog Fix and a reality check on why the hell I was eating like a hyper-endurance athlete, and suddenly the elimination of white bread and the addition of fish (salmon) and real food has been like I got a mood prescription pill. And now I’ve added exercise back into the routine.
The rest of the year is about doing everything, where the first half of the year was about hiding from everything. At various points of my life, I thought I could do anything and everything and felt alive and energized and bold. I like that feeling. I want it back.
