This week has been a week of shovelling snow for me. Paired with New Brunswick getting hit with a snowstorm followed by mild weather and snow falling from the roof as a result, I had my workouts cleared out for that.
But what was also nice about this week was that the temperatures became somewhat tolerable. It was enough for me to get out and actually enjoy a walk. Not to mention making shovelling a more enjoyable activity.
A Week Of Shovelling
It wasn’t a full week of shovelling snow, but with the combination of weather we had over the week it made shovelling a decent workout.
Considering my parents don’t do much shovelling at all, the task falls to me. I don’t mind it at all, especially when the weather was like it was this week.
That being said, I still need to be putting the pressure on myself. After all, shovelling is a good workout but not that big of one. I can’t be relying on it all the time. I should be getting back to the exercises I have written down.
Furthermore, I’ve started to talk to myself about walking first thing in the morning. That or at the very least doing some level of exercises in the morning. I know I should be doing this anyway, but it’s refreshing to know that I’m bringing this back up again right now.
It’s Building Further Up
These mental cues are coming at a good time. Because it’s a reminder for me that I can do more. I’ve challenged myself before and now I feel I’m ready.
Paired up with what I’ve been learning over the past few weeks, I can add a lot of structure to my life.
The cold week taught me how I can incentivize myself moving forward.
And last week I learned what’s the best way to be building momentum in my life.
So even though this week of shovelling wasn’t as progressive, I feel I can bounce back. I’ve still got 11 months left to drop about 25 pounds.
And if I could drop 20 in 6 weeks, surely I could pull this off, right?
All in all, I see this as a way to build further upwards for myself. Paired with how I’ve learned how to better deal with my slump that I’ve been kind of in this past week, I can make next week pretty good.
All I need to do is to remind myself of what I want to do. I need to be a little more active in setting up the things I want to do in the morning. Furthermore reminding myself why I want to do this. And finally keeping the structure that I have right now because it’s more focused on developing that consistency which I need for my long-term results.
I feel that everything is set up for next week so let’s see how I do!
To your growth!
