This Weeks Work

This week, I managed to get a few sessions in on the punching bag, including one solid workout. I learned a few things, like going 100% on this type of bag is a terrible idea, and that my arms aren’t use to this type of impact anymore. So, I cut back how hard I was hitting, concentrating on keeping a good form, and began to throw in some elbows for good measure. That was the key to getting a good workout, and I’m quite satisfied with my purchase.

Mentally it was a rough week for me. I was very unhappy with my job and I’m struggling with the amount of rude people I deal with daily. It makes me wonder if I’m cut out for the job I currently have, or if I need to find something new.

As the week went on, I found myself angry, so I allowed myself to be angry. I channeled up the rage and frustration and jammed out to the Fight Club soundtrack. I felt a bit better after that, I think acknowledging my anger helped.

Today, I began calorie counting. I’m not going 100% on it, but I want to get back into the habit of logging my food.

I’ve also taken the first step in setting up a men’s mental health support group. I’m not exactly sure how successful this is going to be, but I thought I’d give it a shot.

I haven’t taken huge steps, but I am moving forward in adopting a heathier life. That’s progress.
