Long time…no write! I’m afraid I’ve been a bit poorly over the last couple of weeks. When I get home from work, but the time the children go to bed, all I felt like doing was sleeping. Had the shivers, achy body, cough, spluttering cold (feeling sorry for me yet?)
What it has meant is that I certainly didn’t keep updated with my blog. Nor, I’m afraid to say, did I keep up with my 100 day challenge.
What this has taught me is that when I’m feeling unwell, I have found it really difficult to maintain motivation for anything. I certainly didn’t feel like exercising, doing the chores, reading stuff I should be reading, in fact I think it’s fair to motivation was zero! That was for everything except for a staff meeting which I was facilitating around altering a culture within the team about how we work. I haven’t yet been able to put my finger on why this kept my motivation when other aspects should have done, but didn’t. I can only assume it was because the additional goals were what I considered to be over and above my routine, hence required additional effort.
Anyway, I feel as though I have been cheated in my 100 day challenge by not being able to do as I would have liked for the last 10 days or so. Because I can…I have decided to restart my challenge. Had I been on day 50 I wouldn’t have done so, but being so new into it, I feel justified in myself that restarting is appropriate. So, day 1 was actually yesterday (yes I feel much better thank you), but a work commitment prevented the blog. So, day 1 is the 27th March, day 100 being July 4th. Always nice to work towards a target date. It will be my Independence Day (not involving Aliens…but Mrs Preston would be very happy to see Will Smith turn up!)
The goals haven’t changed, all remain the same at this time. I want to maximise this challenge I’ve set myself, losing 10 days so early on is something I could have done without!
Anyway…next blog probably after Easter now, too many family commitments, as well as being on call, I have to manage my time to fit in what I need to, so blogging can wait a few days
Have a good Easter
